As it was…so it shall be
Mat 24:37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. (NIV)
Something unique happened...
I think Jesus chose His words very carefully. When He spoke of His return, He connected it with Noah’s time for a very specific reason. Some argue that He was referring to sin in a general sense as seen in 2 Timothy 3:2, however, I disagree.
In the beginning there was the Word and the Word became flesh. Jesus is the word and the word is the truth and Jesus is the truth. Do you really think Jesus did not know what Timothy would write? Nonsense…He knew and when He spoke of His return, He connected His return to Noah’s time because of the uniqueness of Noah’s time and not simply because of the proliferation of sin and immorality, and so the question we need to ask is, “What happened in Noah’s time that was so unique?”
The Nephilim Were on the Earth
Gen 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them.
Fallen angles father hybrid offspring with human women – this is the single most unique event that marked that age.
Nothing New Under the Sun
Ecc 1:9-11 tells us something very interesting that is relevant to the angelic incursion and our Lord’s prophecy. First is that everything has been done before and second, no one will remember that it’s been done before.
Ecc 1:9 That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun. Ecc 1:10 Is there anything of which one might say, "See this, it is new"? Already it has existed for ages Which were before us. Ecc 1:11 There is no remembrance of earlier things; And also of the later things which will occur, There will be for them no remembrance Among those who will come later still.
In view of the angelic incursion, this verse tells us that when we see a second angelic incursion happen, it is not new, for it has happened before, but the earlier occurrence will not be remembered.
It is my interpretation of Jesus’ prophecy that a second angelic incursion will happen and will be a marker of His return. When this event occurs, “those who will come later” meaning people of this last age, will not remember that it has happened before. Could this be the church which has forgotten the angelic view of Genesis six and replaced it with the Sethite view?
If a second angelic incursion is an end-time prophecy marking our Lord’s return, then how will a second angelic incursion happen?
Prophecy of Mixing Seed
Let’s review Daniel’s end-time prophecy of miry clay and iron from King Nebeccinizzer’s dream.
Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.
“they shall mingle” – Mingle is a reflexive verb – ie. Performed on one’s own self
A reflexive verb is a verb whose semantic agent and patient are the same.
They mingle themselves with the seed of man
Commonly interpreted as nations, but verse 44 reads, “And in the days of these kings” where the kings are rulers of the nations – it is the kings that mingle seed. I believe this verse tells us that the kings of these nations mingle their seed with man.
Who Are These Kings?
Who are these kings?
Deu 32:8 When the Most High divided the nations, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the nations according to the number of the angels of God. (LXX)
The Spirit Influence behind World Leaders
Deu 32:8 speaks of an event where angels are assigned to nations of the earth. Where else do we see angles assigned to nations in scripture?
Eze 28:12 “Son of man, take up a lamentation over the king of Tyre and say to him, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "You had the seal of perfection, Full of wisdom and perfect in beauty."
Dan 10:13 "But the prince of the kingdom of Persia was withstanding me for twenty-one days; then behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left there with the kings of Persia."
Dan 10:20 Then he said, "Do you understand why I came to you? But I shall now return to fight against the prince of Persia; so I am going forth, and behold, the prince of Greece is about to come."
Dan 7:24 'As for the ten horns, out of this kingdom ten kings will arise; - The ten kings are not nations, they are the angelic kings assigned to those nations who mingle seed.
Whom does Paul say we battle? Eph 6:12 “…rulers, powers, and spiritual forces of wickedness in high places…”
Nothing new…it’s been done before and will happen again.
After Its Own Kind
Gen 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so. Gen 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and everything that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
Mixing Seed Corrupts Flesh
Jasher 4:18 – Mixing Seed (Testifies to Gen 6:12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.)
And their judges and rulers went to the daughters of men and took wives by force from their husbands according to their choice, and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord, and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.
Gen 6:12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
End-Time Prophecy – Mixing Seed
Isa 13:19 And Babylon, which is called glorious by the king of the Chaldeans, shall be as when God overthrew Sodoma, and Gomorrha. Isa 13:20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall any enter into it for many generations: neither shall the Arabians pass through it; nor shall shepherds at all rest in it. Isa 13:21 But wild beasts shall rest there; and the houses shall be filled with howling; and monsters shall rest there, and devils shall dance there, Isa 13:22 and satyrs shall dwell there; and hedgehogs shall make their nests in their houses. It will come soon, and will not tarry.
Men Who Cannot Die?
Rev 9:6 And in those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will long to die, and death flees from them.
What changes the nature of man from a mortal being subject to death to a being from which death flees? What kind of man cannot die? What kind of man cannot be killed?
Angels are not mortal – they are eternal. An angel-human hybrid would carry characteristics of both species including the immortality of angels.
Is this prophetic verse speaking of the children of mixed seed?
Hybrid Technology Already Exists
Jasher 4:18 – “…and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord…”
Over six thousand years have passed since the time of Noah, and only in the past ten years has man possessed the knowledge and ability to manipulate the genetic building blocks that God created. Ten years compared to six thousand years – the acquisition of this knowledge signals the beginning of Jesus prophecy – as it was in the time of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the son of man.
The Liger brings together 19 chromosomes from the lion father and 19 chromosomes from the tiger mother. The curious thing about this combination is that the “stop growing” gene is carried by the female lion and the male tiger. By mixing the male lion with the female tiger, the “stop growing” gene is missing which allows the Liger to grow to giant size.
The existence of the Liger is hard scientific proof that tampering with the genetic code through cross-breeding species can produce giants.
Other Animal Hybrids in Existance Today:
Zebra + Equine = Zebroid
Buffalo + Cow = Beefalo
Camel + Lama = Cama
Leopard + Lion = Leopon
Serval + Domestic Cat = Savannah Cat
Donkey + Zebra = Donkra
African Serval + Asian Leopard Cat + Domestic House Cat = Ashera
In spite of the ethical nature of bio-engineering, gene manipulation, hybrid species, and even Human-Animal hybrids, there is still no law in place to govern the use of this emerging science.
According to The Daily Mail, UK, British genetics laboratories have already produce over 150 human-animal hybrid embryos.
Rabbit Eggs with Human Cells
The first successful human-animal chimeras were reported in 2003. Chinese researchers at the Shanghai Second Medical University successfully fused human cells with rabbit eggs.
Pigs with Human Blood
Researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota announced they had created pigs with human blood pumping through their veins. What was startling about the animal is not only did the pig blood cells flow with human cells, but some of the cells merged together, creating pig-human cell hybrids.
Sheep with Human Livers
In 2007, scientists at the University of Nevada-Reno announced they could grow livers made up of 20 percent human cells in sheep.
Mouse with Human Liver
Using a mouse that was having liver problems of its own, the researchers replaced its liver with one that was made up of 95 percent human cells to study treatments for Hepatitis.
Cow Eggs with Human Cells
The nucleus of the cow was removed, and replaced with the nucleus of a human cell. Once the egg was allowed to develop and multiply it became an early-stage cloned embryo.
Cat-Human Hybrid Proteins
In April 2005, scientists at the University of California created a human-cat hybrid when they fused the Fel d 1 protein with a human protein known to suppress allergic reactions. The feline protein would bind to immune cells that would cause the reaction and the human protein would tell the immune cells to calm down.
In 2005, biotech company StemCells Inc., was granted permission to create a mouse-human hybrid. In 2010, researchers announced they transformed mouse skin cells into fully functional neurons in a laboratory dish for the first time.
Transhumanism is a cultural and intellectual movement that believes we can, and should, improve the human condition through the use of advanced technologies. One of the core concepts in transhumanist thinking is life extension: Through genetic engineering, nanotech, cloning, and other emerging technologies, eternal life may soon be possible.
Transhumanism holds the promise of super longevity, super intelligence, and super health through these technologies.
Transhumanism promises cures for diseases, an end to world hunger, and will lead to immortality.
Transhumanism’s temptation is to “take control” of humanity’s evolution.
Transhumanism has been called “the religion of technology.”
However, once animal DNA gets into Humanity’s breeding pool, how will we ever put the genie back into the bottle? As the DNA of the human race becomes corrupted, it is easy to imagine a future where there are very few “pure humans” remaining. Is this not what we saw happen in the time of Noah when God declared all flesh corrupted? – As it was…so shall it be.
A deception that can fool even the elect:
Mat 24:24 “For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect."
What kind of deception would fool you?
Would you receive an invisible tattoo on your right hand or forehead that can only be read by magnetic scanners when making a purchase? - Not likely to fool anyone.
Would you receive a sub-dermal implant that will automatically make purchases when you pass through a checkout line? – Nope…still not good enough to fool you, right?
Would you join a new religion lead by a striking, charismatic man with a gift of persuasion? - Again, not likely to fool you.
How about a flu-shot-like inoculation that promises to keep you healthy?
If this fictional news announcement were real, would you be fooled or would you want to receive the inoculation?
“In health news, Harvard Medical in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization have announced a major breakthrough in genetic engineering. Scientists at Harvard have discovered the gene responsible for immunity in humans. The gene appears to be dormant but researchers have developed a protein that will activate or turn-on the dormant gene. Testing shows the gene makes a person immune to disease, influenza, the common cold, and even cancer. Clinical testing shows reversal of genetic diseases such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s. Beginning next year, an immunity gene shot will be offered in place of the annual flu vaccine and promises to be that last inoculation anyone will ever need. The CDC is working with manufactures to produce the serum and the WHO predicts global distribution within five years effectively ending all disease and illness around the world.”
Such an inoculation could use a live virus to inject you with a DNA “upgrade” and evolve you into something more than Human.
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” - Adolf Hitler
When we know something is not real, it is easy to dismiss it as harmless. Fairy Tales and adventures of the imagination provide hours of entertainment for children and adults alike, but when the same theme is repeated in cinema, in music, in art, in literature, in advertising, in TV, and in digital entertainment, people become desensitized to the message.
What is the message to which we are being conditioned? Cross breeds and hybrids are the next step in man’s evolution. To better mankind, man needs to advance beyond his evolved physical limitations. Spirit beings called angels bring are among us and desire to help man evolve. They will share their knowledge and help guide Humanity into the future.
You're so hypnotizing, could you be the devil, could you be an angel? You're not like the others, futuristic lover, different DNA, they don't understand you. You're from a whole 'nother world, a different dimension. You open my eyes and I'm ready to go, lead me into the light.Kiss me, Infect me with your loving fill me with your poison.Take me, Wanna be your victim, ready for abduction.It's supernatural.

We started this course with the word preposterous but we will end with the word imminent.
Imminent - About to occur; impending: (imminent (ˈɪmɪnənt)); likely to occur at any moment; impending
Following Israel becoming a nation in 1947, there is only one scriptural directive prior to the arrival of the tribulation prophecies, and that is imminence. We are instructed by our Lord to maintain an attitude of imminence – an immediate expectation of, and preparation for, His return.
Mat 24:42 “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming."
Mat 24:37 "For as it was in the time of Noah, so it will be at the Coming of the Son of Man."
Mar 1:15 ..."The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel."
It is my belief that Jesus chose His words very carefully. Jesus did not tell us on a whim of fancy that His return will be marked by the same conditions that existed in Noah’s time. He told us that so we would not be the elect that is fooled by the great deception of this final age, but in seeing its reality in the world around us would recognize that the Kingdom of God is truly at hand.
Call to Action
And so in closing, if you’re called to teach, then go teach. If you’re called to counsel, then go counsel. If you’re called to evangelize, then go evangelize. If you’re called to heal, then go heal. If you’re called to set captives free, then go…set them free.
If you have a neighbor who you’ve put off sharing news of God’s gift, then go share it for now may be your last chance. If you have a family member with whom you’ve never discussed their salvation, then go call them this very minute, for this moment may be their last opportunity to choose.
Whatever way you’re called to serve God’s Kingdom, go…hurry…for time is short, the end of this age is upon us, for our Lord Jesus warned us, ..."The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand...”
