Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.  He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.
Now here is our revised study of: Christopherson's Genesis 7.
We know that at least two Kenites survived Noah's flood. Whether on the ark or in a part of the earth which was not flooded; I know not!
I Chronicles 2:55 "And the families of the scribes which dwelt at Jabez [Jerusalem], ; the Tirathites, the Shimeathites, and Suchathites. These are the Kenites that came of Hemath, the father of the house of Rechab." (grandchildren of Cain)
(I Chronicles 2:55 was written long after Noah's Flood.)
But you thought the flood was world wide! Read Live Link to- pamphlet #4151, then you decide! The problem seems to the translation of earth/land. Which should it be?When we take a close look at what happened in the beginning, we see there is not that much difference between the beginning and the end.
The only reason that I give supposition to this chapter is to cause you to want to dig deeper into God's holy Word and have a deeper understanding. To give you a desire to dig for the original meanings, and become skilled in the using of the tools of study, in your search for truth. Most of what is written in this chapter, and on, is well founded and documented.
We saw in Genesis four and five the similarity between Cain and Adam's genealogy, and that Cain used similar names in copying the genealogy of Adam.
This use of identical names was followed by the Kenites down through all generations, to our current day. Cain was not of Adam, but he was from the sexual union between Satan and Eve in the Garden of Eden, when Eve was wholly seduced by Satan.
This act is what is told in the "Parable of the Fig Tree", and Jesus Christ told us to learn it, so that we would not be deceived.
Genesis 7:1 "And the Lord said unto Noah, "come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before Me in this generation."
Noah was the tenth generation from Adam, and God had selected Noah, and commanded him to build an ark, big enough to take two of every kind: of animals, of fowl, and all creeping things, and this Noah did.
God is now commanding Noah to enter into that ark, and take all his family with him, as well as the rest of the animals *and races that were selected.
There were two of all unclean kind, and seven of all clean kind.
I believe this because I have never read any place in the Bible where there was a problem with angels coming to earth and marrying into the races.Of course I am only speculating here. May the Lord forgive me if i'm wrong!
We read in Genesis 6:9, that Noah's righteousness was in his "being perfect in his generations, and Noah walked with God." Noah's righteousness was in his "perfect pedigree", or prue blood line of his family. In that they had not mixed with the fallen angels, called the "sons of God" or Nephilim, which would cause the lineage of the blood line that the Christ child would come through to be impure, and polluted
Genesis 7:2 "Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and the female: and of the beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female."
Remember that only the clean beast were fit for sacrifices, and for the propagation of their kind.
Genesis 7:3 "O fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth."
Genesis 7:4 "For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth."
Seven stands for "spiritual completeness" in biblical numerics. The word "destroy" used in this verse is the same Hebrew word use for "blotted out, and is used to show that they will not exist any more; such as our sins that we have committed, and confessed to the Heavenly Father, in Jesus Name.
Forty in biblical numerics stands for probation. And the surviving part of the world is now put on probation.
The first command that God gave Adam and Eve was that they do not listen to the serpent, Satan. God ordered them to stay away from him, as we read in Genesis three, however, they did not, and Eve was wholly seduced by Satan.
Then at a later time when daughters were born to the men of earth, the fallen angels desired them, and came to earth to take them for wives; and in time almost the entire population of the Adamic people [the eighth day creation] was polluted by their evil blood.
All that is, except for Noah and his family. This is what made Noah's family different from the rest of the people of the land.
Genesis 7:5 "And Noah did according unto all that the Lord commanded him."
Noah did not listen to Satan, or any of his followers, but "Noah did all that the Lord had commanded".
God's command is also going out to us living in these end times; "Don't listen to Satan, or any of his followers."
Don't argue, fight, or even reason with Satan, and this is because you will lose.
Satan is an expert in twisting God's Word, and creating his false doctrines that are filling the church world today.
This is why you and I must learn to go to the Bible, and check it out for ourselves; using the proper Bible tools which takes us back to the original intended meanings.
The King James Bible is the best, because by using it, we can also use the Strong's Exhaustive concordance, that each word in the Bible is numbered, and cross referenced to both the Hebrew, Chaldee, and the Greek dictionaries, that are included in the back of the concordance. The Smiths Bible dictionary is great in giving the meanings of Hebrew names, and times.
The Young's Concordance and dictionary is not correct in many cases, and will lead you to false conclusions. Young's simply cannot be trusted, especially in these latter days.
Genesis 7:6 "And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth."
"Six hundred" in biblical numerics is warfare. The war had begun, and the two forces were between God and His followers, and Satan and his children, the Kenites, as well as all the half breeds that filled the rest of the middle east.
The flood that is taking place will destroy the physical impurity that Satan had brought upon the land, and it will cover the entire land.
However the flood that we will live to see in these final days of this earth age, will cover the entire earth with the lies and deceptions of Satan, the Kenites, the fallen angels, and assisting them will be the ministers and priests promoting Satan's false doctrines, and your own family and friends who are not sealed in their minds with the Word of God.
This "warfare" of the end times is a spiritual warfare, and we must be prepared in a spiritual sense, just as Noah was prepared in the physical sense.
Genesis 7:7 "And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood."
Genesis 7:8 "Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,"
Genesis 7:9 "There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah."
Noah had, and continued always to follow the instructions of our Heavenly Father.
Genesis 7:10 "And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth."
Here again the "seven" appears, the biblical number for perfection. The flood has now begun.
Genesis 7:11 "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the foundations of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."
Keep alert in your mind the correlation between the book of Revelation, and the book of Genesis.
The "great deep" in this verse is called the "abyss" in the Hebrew text. The Hebrew word is "Tehom".
Revelation 9:1, 2 "And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth; and to him was given the key [authority] of the bottomless pit [the abyss]. , And he opened the bottomless pit [abyss]; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit."
The "bottomless pit" is the abyss, the same region that the flood waters of Genesis 7:11 came from, the "great deep". The "star" that fell is Satan, and the key was given by God, and this will be Satan's full authority to do exactly what he is going to do in these end times. God was in full control at the times of Noah's flood, and He also sets the bounds of testing during Satan's world reign of the end times.
When the abyss was opened during Noah's time a flood of water covered the earth, however, in the time of the end, the smoke that comes out of that same abyss will be a flood of lies and deceptions brought forth by the "locust army" of fallen angels that will also cover the entire earth. When Satan comes at the "sixth trumpet", he will bring with him all of his fallen angels, and you will see them face to face. You better be prepared for what they are bringing with them.
Revelation 12:15 "And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood."
This flood of lies and deceptions are directed to God's children,
the Christians of the world,
and it is they that Satan desires to destroy.
This is how the flood will come upon the earth in the last days.
Remember, Noah's flood and battle was in a physical sense, and the battle of the end days is a spiritual battle.
The church world today likes to confuse the two types of warfare.
Revelation 12:16 "And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth."
Though Satan is out to destroy the spiritual body, not the physical body, of each of God's elect,
it is God that will provide the way to safety, and the way out.
We saw in Genesis 7:11 that God provided the way out for Noah and his family, God's chosen; and this was an example of what our generation of God's chosen will see, when Satan's spiritual flood of evil comes upon the earth.
At that time it is God that will provide the way out.
This spiritual battle is well under way today, as the world moves under the one world control of the Kenites four hidden dynasties.
Notice that it is the beginning of the solar year that Noah enters the ark, and it will be exactly one solar year later that Noah will leave the ark.
Genesis 7:12 "And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights."
Genesis 7:13 "In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of this sons with them, into the ark;"
This fixes the exact time of the flood.
Genesis 7:14 "They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort."
This includes all animals, and races, of each kind.
Genesis 7:15 "And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life."
Did you get that? "...two of all flesh," Remember back in Genesis 6:3; "And the Lord said, "My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh,". So we see the races of the sixth day of creation were also here, because God created all flesh, each after their kind, and that means each race would also be aboard the ark.
Modern man would have us believe that "there is no difference in kind, between the races", and today this is accepted in all areas, from marriage and breeding habits, to all forms of mixing. This is exactly what happened in Noah's day, and upon the sounding of that sixth trumpet, of Revelation 9:1, 2, mankind will again be faced by these demonics [fallen angels], also called the "sons of God", parading on the earth and calling themselves human.
Remember what Jesus said in Matthew 24:37, 38; "But as the days of Noe [Noah] were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark."
It is interesting that the world today is becoming a pattern of what Noah faced prior to the flood. The violence and evil, and man turning God's commandments totally upside-down, and backside-front. The world is making Sodomy, which God hated, a normal act, and killing, such as abortion a free willed act of natural selection bestowed on the mother. Stealing and murder have become a matter of conscience, and separated from God's absolute commandments. The laws of the land change as fast as some attorney can find a way around them, or some judge can find, and close his mind to them. It seems the only thing lacking today from what Noah faced, was the presence of the fallen angels, and Satan; and that will come very shortly.
Notice in the thirty ninth verse; "And knew not until the flood came." The word "knew" in the Greek text is "1097 in Strong's Greek dictionary; "Ginosko, a prime verb; allow to be aware, to perceive, be resolved, or understand."
Professing Christians will be so involved in every wind of doctrine, and they will follow the teachings that make them financially successful, and feel comfortable in their conscience. They will allow themselves to be unaware, for they will select a wind of doctrine that fits their desires, and not the truth of God's Word. They will believe in fairy tales, such as the rapture doctrine, for it allows them to be lazy and and in tune with the world around them. This is why so few will be ready and able to stand against Satan, in the days just ahead. I heard a pastor tell his congregation that Revelation was not important to understand, and not to spend time in it. My fellow Christian, if you do not know the signs of Revelation, and the end times, you will be among the first to be take by the spurious messiah.
Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us a warning to pay attention to how things were in Noah's day, for that is how it would be in the end times, and that is why we are studying Genesis. We know that from the Old Testament, there may have been two Kenites on that ark, for they were a kind of flesh, and they are also present after the flood. The "breath of life" is present in all flesh.
Genesis 7:16 "And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the Lord shut him in."
Again for emphasis; notice "of all flesh", and the fact that it was the Lord that shut him in.
Genesis 7:17 "And the flood was forty days upon the earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth."
Noah built his ship away from the water, then he collected two of every kind of animal, and they went into the ark,
"and the Lord shut the door."
Then after the seven days it started to rain.
The entire land rejected Noah, and they did not allow themselves to become aware, or even "perceive" the warnings of Noah, until it was too late.
Think of all the people cracking jokes, and making light of Noah's ship, as they continued to make merry with their fallen angel friends.
After all, for the past 2000 years they had never seen rain, even once.
However, on the first time that it happened, it was then too late for them. The door was closed!
This is exactly as it is today; for when God's word is taught, as we are instructed to teach, line upon line and chapter upon chapter, the entire Bible, but, the people of the world reject the teachings.
They chase after the traditions of men and fairy tales (which are taught in most of our so-called Christian churches), until, as has happened over the years, the true Word of God
sounds totally foreign to them.
Peter addressed this in II Peter 3:1-4.
Peter reminded us that men will be scoffers at you and God's word, when you tell them the truth.
In fact the whole basis for their accepting the fairy tale of the theory of evolution, is that they believe that there has never been a catastrophic event world wide in the past 240 million years.
They reject all signs of Lucifer's flood, and some don't even believe Noah's flood happened. They continue in creating images as to how things ought to be, to fulfill their foolish ideas.
It has become like the blind leading the blind.
Genesis 7:18 "And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth; and the ark went upon the face of the waters."
Genesis 7:19 "And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth; and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered."
Genesis 7:20 "Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered."
Genesis 7:21 "And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man:"
All of the fallen angels were destroyed, along with the hybrid nephilim, their offspring, as well as all of the Adamic race that mixed and mated with them. All those in the land who were not aboard the ark died. They were unfit in their pedigree, and defiled God by their mixing and mating with the fallen angels.
Genesis 7:22 "All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died."
The "breath of life" is the soul. All physical bodies were destroyed, and the souls were removed from the face of the earth.
Genesis 7:23 "And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
The reason again for the flood was the re-purifying of the blood line of Adam; that blood line that the Messiah would come through. Mankind had sunk as low as it could go in all forms of evil, continually.
Genesis 6:5 "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."
The flood then, was God correcting the evil influence and damage that Satan, and his fallen angels, had done to the seed that the Christ child would be born through, and enter into the world.
We are again entering a time when God's people, calling themselves "Christians", will allow themselves to be taken in by Satan, and his children, the Kenites, and shortly even the fallen angels.
There is a time coming when you will either be sealed with the Word of God, or you will receive the mark of the beast.
Revelations 9:4 tells us that that sealing is the only thing that will protect you from Satan's forces, and when you are sealed Satan can not touch you, however, all those people who are not sealed will be blinded to their actions, and they will joyfully follow after Satan's one world system, and bow to him as the Messiah.
Just as God said; "I will cause it to rain upon the earth", in Genesis 7:4; and also "I shut him in", in the sixteenth verse; so also will our Lord seal you in your mind, and allow you to know the truth.
It is God who holds the power, and gives the "keys" of authority to Satan, and sets the limits that he and his fallen angels may reach.
God will allow the flood [of deceptions] to come, and God will also provide the protection to His own.
Most Christians of today have no idea what the signs of the end times are, or the methods that the Kenites, and Satan himself will use to ensnare them.
For the past fifty years, the Kenites have been destroying what ever traditions and teachings that are true and sound, and in it's place they have been pouring the sand of false doctrine, and rewriting history to conform to their lies and deceptions. They control their four hidden dynasties of today, and it is through those hidden dynasties that you are becoming their cattle. Those hidden dynasties, of Ezekiel, and the Miner Prophets are Education, Economics [banking, industry, and trade], Politics [the UN, with all it's agencies and treaty agreements], and Religion.
Look around you and wake up to the erosion and decay of all absolutes of God's word. God's standards are being corrupted, and most Christians are accepting it.
Genesis 7:24 "And the water prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days."
We see here that this verse also relates directly to
the Book of Revelation.
These 150 days represent a five month period of time, and in the latter days there is another five month period of time mentioned.
Revelation nine starts with the ending of the fourth trumpet and the start of the fifth trumpet.
When this period starts the first four seals have been completed, and Satan, called "Apollyon" in the Greek, meaning "the evil one" will have arrived on earth.
Jesus told John to write of this five month flood of Satan's locust army, from that "bottomless pit" [the abyss], that would cover the entire earth, and it is recorded in Revelation 9:5, 10. This five month period is called the time of the locust, and it will run during the time and season of the locust, which is May through September. You will be ready for the year, by following the current events, and matching them to the signs of the time. Those sign are what the Bible calls prophecies, and Jesus warned and commanded us to learn them so that we will not be deceived.
During the season of the locust, that five month period, Satan will rule the earth as the spurious maessiah, the false-christ. His destructive waters of lies and deceit will continue for five months. Those who believe in the rapture theory [the any moment doctrine], will love Satan, for Satan will give them anything their hearts desire. Daniel 8:22-27 tells us that is the false-christ's policy; to make them prosper, as he destroys them wonderfully. God is going to give Satan the earth, and all the people in it, to test them. This is why you will bow to him if you do not know the truth; for Satan will buy you for what ever price you require of him.
Have you thought lately what it will take to buy your eternal soul? For if you are not one of the sealed elect of God, and know the truth, you will not be in the ark of the end times, but covered by the flood of lies and deception by Satan, the false-christ's beast system. The ark of Noah's day was a ship that separated Noah and his family from the destructive waters flooding the earth. However, the ark of the latter days is not physical, but it is spiritual. The ark of the end times is "divine wisdom", and that ark is formed in your mind, and by and through the Word of God. When the rains came, it was God that shut the door and sealed Noah and his family in that ark, and protected them.
When the spiritual flood of lies and deception of our generation comes it will be God also that will seal the doors of the ark within our minds, and God will protect us from the spurious messiah and his system. Just like Noah built the physical ark exactly as God had commanded him to, so that Noah's ark would withstand the wild waters of destruction; so also God has outlined exactly how our spiritual ark should be built, and all the spiritual materials God provided in His holy Word.
How do we know what is important, and what is not important?
Christian, if Jesus commanded you to learn it, you had better know it.
When Jesus told John to write it down in His Revelation, you know it is important.
When God told Ezekiel, Daniel, Moses, David, or any of the Old Testament Prophets to write; "Thus saith the Lord", my fellow Christian, we had better pay attention.
Jesus told us that what happened in Noah's day, and through that flood will be an example of what we will face. Because of God's promise that there would never be a world wide flood of water again, common sense tells us it is a spiritual flood.
We are well underway in the fulfillment of the seals and trumpets of the book of Revelation. The "great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea" is the United States, for their will never be a greater nation then America, and the fire is a spiritual fire that our nation is covered with. Through the United Nation laws and treaties, we have yielded our Sovereignty to the world of Satan's children, the Kenites. This may sound foreign to you, for if it is, you were asleep when the first angel sounded the trumpet. [Revelation 8:7]
When the second angel sounded the trumpet, a treaty was signed, and a third of our jobs and industry vanished. Trees were not allowed to be cut, and commercial fishing became sparse. Have you noticed the massive loss of jobs lately, and the products that become hard to get? How is it with your job and your community? This is the warning of the second trumpet, and it is history to most of us, and even part of our lives, and that of our family. This part of Jesus warning is in Revelation 8:8.
"And the third angel sounded", and the name of that star "wormwood" turned the waters bitter, and a third part of men died. Remember that this is not physical but spiritual, and the death of these men are going to die spiritually. Why? because the waters they are drinking is not the living water, that Christ offers, but the sweet tasting doctrines that offer much, and sounds so good, but it is not of God, but of demons. The Church world today is mixing the truth of God's word, with the doctrines of demons, and that "wormwood" is spiritually flooding the Christian churches of all denominations. The third trumpet has sounded, and is taking place of Revelation 8:9-11, is this seal been placed in your mind yet?
When the fourth angel sounded the trumpet the angel tells us to look back at the things that have happened in the past three trumpets, and pay special attention. For the things that are light will become darkened, and the third of the sun will be darkened. Remember this is spiritual, and as thus must by applied as such. God's spiritual teaching, attitudes, doctrines, men, laws and on and on are under full attack. In fact many of the protections and rights have so eroded that the pressures are on to subdue all forms of worship, prayer, conversation, actions and so on, that conform to the word of God, are being condemned. The Kenites control the United Nations, and by treaty, all Christian nations have subscribed to them for the past seventy years. International treaty law has priority over our constitutional law, and those laws are on the books. Proclaiming Christian, the fourth angel has sounded; have you placed that seal in your mind? The fifth trumpet is now sounding and the city "Mystery Babylon" is being built by Satan's children, those Kenites and their four hidden dynasties.
So what is next? The angel sounding the sixth trumpet, is next, and that is the arrival of Satan the, false-christ, "the instead-of-christ", in person, here on earth with all his army of Fallen angels. Before that trumpet sounds you will either be sealed in your mind, and armed with the spiritual armor of God, or you will take his , Satan's, number.
You still have a choice now, however, at the sounding of that sixth trumpet, your choice will be gone, over. If you are not now studying your Bible, and getting the seal of God planted firmly in your mind, you certainly won't after Satan and his supernatural partners get here and start feeding you lies, while performing miracles to cause you to believe them and worship Satan thinking he is God.
Satan will be buying your soul, because you have not studied and correctly divided the Word of Truth. You don't know how to tell the difference between what is profane [Satan] and what is Holy [Jesus]
Genesis 7 is a very important chapter, for it is the warning and an example of what will happen in our generation. it is time to wake up and get into God's Word, and make that word and His armor part of our lives.
American Wisdom Series Editor's Note: We are going to stop here in our "In the Beginning Study" to review some commentary from chapter 7 in an earlier study we published on the the first 11 chapters of Genesis. I don't believe you will find much difference in the general opinion of these 2 authors, but to read another person's perspective of events that took place at the start of God's creation of our universe may prove helpful in your understanding of the beginning of both the first and the second earth ages Because if you don't understand what happened in the beginning you will not understand the remainder of Scriptural teaching
Let's pause for a moment of reflection and try to imagine what it was like for Noah, whose name means "rest". Our Father has given him the plans and told him to go out and build this humongous boat in the backyard, which is not exactly a weekend project, so there won't be any "rest" for awhile, anyway.
Now we know from 2 Peter 2:5 that Noah was a preacher of righteousness, and by putting two and two together (that's a figure of speech and has nothing to do with how the animals were assembled for the ark) we know what he was preaching and warning about. Noah was preaching against getting involved with the sons of God, the fallen angels! Keep away from them! Keep away from Satan and his own! But ultimately only he and his family would remain pure and uncorrupted by these supernatural charmers.
So not only wasn't anyone heeding Noah's warnings, but you can be sure they had him labeled as a "far right wing religious extremist". And now he starts to build this floating stadium to house the broncos, the cardinals, the bulls and the eagles and adds the flash flood warning to his sermons. I'm sure this went over really big and as a result brought forth the best scoffers of the day!
The point is that Noah and his family stood alone in the land against tremendous pressure and ridicule and yet were willing to take a stand against the "fiery darts", against this same locust army that we will face in this generation, the final generation, the generation of the fig tree, yes, the "Baby Boomer" generation.
Twice for emphasis, once in Gen. 6:22 and again in Gen 7:5, our Father had Moses record, "And Noah did all that the Lord commanded him". What an example he was for us. What a tremendous servant of God! I can't wait to meet him someday!
We begin now with chapter seven of Genesis, which flows rather smoothly.
Noah and his family have come under the divine protection of our Father and are invited aboard His ark. The invitation is still open today for the ark of the end time.Genesis 7:1
And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation.
The reason for seven of the "clean" animals is that only "clean" animals could be used for sacrifice. For those who may not yet know, a "clean" animal isn't one that has had a bath, but rather is one that our Father created that could be eaten as food. "Unclean" animals are not to be eaten and are like putting kerosene in you car's gas tank. Read Leviticus chapter 11 for details and a list. Nothing has changed today in this regard. (That ought to get me some e-mail.) Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth('eretsHebrew776land).
The number seven denotes "spiritual perfection", while the number 40 signifies "testing" or "probation". All these folks in Noah's day were put on probation. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land) forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth(агодHebrew127).
Did you know that 1 out every 5 verses in the Bible contains at least one number? Did you know that numbers in scripture have spiritual significance? They help us to partake of that "hidden manna", giving us a deeper level of understanding. For instance: each time the number 40 is used throughout the Bible it denotes probation or testing. It rained 40 days and 40 nights at the time of the flood. Israel wandered in the wilderness 40 years. Moses was on the mountain 40 days. Christ was tempted of Satan 40 days in the wilderness, etc. Here are a few other numbers and their meanings:
If you are fortunate to have a Companion Bible, appendix 10 will explain the significance of numbers in more detail. Additionally, we have several good resources available on Biblical numerics.5 = Grace
6 = Man
7 = Spiritual Perfection
8 = New Beginnings
10 = Law or Ordinal Perfection as in the 10 commandments
12 = Governmental Perfection as in 12 tribes, 12 apostles, etc.
And he didn't whine and moan and complain. He probably had sign hanging in his workshop that said "Just Do It". And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.
600 is the number connected with warfare. Pharaoh pursued Israel with 600 chariots, etc., etc. And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land).
 And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.
 Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth(агодHebrew127),
 There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
One week, then judgment began. And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land).
This fixes the exact date of the Flood, beginning the solar year 2348 B.C. It was Noah's 600th year and Methuselah died at age 969 in the first month of this flood year. In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
Here in verse 11 we see the earth opening up and bringing forth the flood. In Rev. 12:16 we see the earth opening up and swallowing the flood (the lies of Satan).
We suggested earlier that these were the domestic and farm animals that existed only with the Adamic people in the region, land, eretz, where they lived. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.
 In the selfsame day entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;
 They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land) after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.
Remember in Gen. 6:3 that man had also become flesh. One thing is for sure, all the races, including the sons of Cain (kenites) survived the Flood of Noah, whether they were aboard the ark or in other countries unaffected by the deluge. And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life.
God Himself shut the door of the ark. Never can it be said that it was man who shut the door on them and wouldn't let them aboard the ark. They will be without excuse at judgment. And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
What a sight that must have been! And the flood was forty days upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land); and the waters increased, and bare up the ark, and it was lift up above the earth('eretsHebrew776land).
All of the remaining animals, birds, etc., including the giants and all of Adam's descendents died. And the waters prevailed, and were increased greatly upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land); and the ark went upon the face of the waters.
 And the waters prevailed exceedingly upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land); and all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered.
 Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered.
 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land), both of fowl, and of cattle, and of beast, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land), and every man:
The word "destroyed" literally means "blotted out". All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died.
 And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground(агодHebrew127), both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth('eretsHebrew776land): and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.
And so the bloodline of Adam has been purged, purified by judgment. The adamic race through which the Messiah would come, now begins anew with it's eight remaining souls aboard the ark. The number eight means "new beginnings". How appropriate.
150 days = 5 months. As it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end. The "flood" of lies soon to engulf those adrift in the sea of peoples in this generation, will also prevail 5 months. We know that from Revelation chapter 9, for it is also called the locust army. And do you want to know something even more specific? The time of the swarming stage of locusts is from May to September! Look it up in the encyclopedia. It's 5 months! And the waters prevailed upon the earth('eretsHebrew776land) an hundred and fifty days.
The Word of God is the most amazing and exciting book you'll ever read! After all, it is authored by the Creator of the Universe, our Father, who is amazing and exciting indeed! For it is written that the feeble mind of flesh man cannot even begin to comprehend the things He has in store for those who love Him. If you're not already on His ark, it's now time to get aboard. It's by no means boring! It's an exciting ride!
