Prophetic event? Marian Shrine at Lourdes, France is inundated by flood waters.

Rescue teams helped hundreds of pilgrims escape waterlogged hotels on Saturday after heavy rains led the Gave River to overrun its banks — and even wash up into the town’s famed grotto, where many Catholics believe the Virgin Mary appeared to a 14-year-old girl named Bernadette Soubirous in 1858.

Therefore, rejoice, O heavens, and you that dwell therein. Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the man child. And there were given to the woman two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the desert, unto her place, where she is nourished for a time and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

And the serpent cast out of his mouth, after the woman, water, as it were a river: that he might cause her to be carried away by the river. And the earth helped the woman: and the earth opened her mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon cast out of his mouth. And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 12:12-17)

Now giants were upon the earth in those days…

Genesis 6:2 – 4 The sons of God seeing the daughters of men, that they were fair, took to themselves wives of all which they chose. And God said: My spirit shall not remain in man for ever, because he is flesh, and his days shall be a hundred and twenty years. Now giants were upon the earth in those days. For after the sons of God went in to the daughters of men, and they brought forth children, these are the mighty men of old, men of renown.

These creatures, through inter-breeding, eventually managed to contaminate the entire human genome, except for NOAH’s family. That’s why Noah (and 7 other humans) got to build the ark and survive.

Genesis 6:9 These are the generations of Noe: Noe (Noah) was a just and perfect man in his generations, he walked with God.

St. Peter tells us that Noah and his family were SAVED by the FLOOD.

1Peter 3:18 – 20 Because Christ also died once for our sins, the just for the unjust: that he might offer us to God, being put to death indeed in the flesh, but enlivened in the spirit, In which also coming he preached to those spirits that were in prison: Which had been some time incredulous, when they waited for the patience of God in the days of Noe, when the ark was a building: wherein a few, that is, eight souls, were saved by water.

These oversize hybrid people showed up again in the Promised Land just in time to battle the Israelites, as they were returning from their sojourn in Egypt. (Remember Moses and the parting of the Red Sea?) Without another flood, they proved difficult to dislodge. Generations later the Israelites were still fighting giants.

God brought the flood to destroy the first influx of these evil beings and here’s what He told the Israelites to do about those they encountered later:

Numbers 33:52 – 55 Destroy all the inhabitants of that land: Beat down their pillars, and break in pieces their statues, and waste all their high places, Cleansing the land, and dwelling in it. For I have given it you for a possession. And you shall divide it among you by lot. To the more you shall give a larger part, and to the fewer a lesser. To every one as the lot shall fall, so shall the inheritance be given. The possession shall be divided by the tribes and the families. But if you will not kill the inhabitants of the land: they that remain, shall be unto you as nails in your eyes, and spears in your sides, and they shall be your adversaries in the land of your habitation.

How evil were these descendants of the nephilim (fallen ones)?

“ … they shall be unto you as nails in your eyes and spears in your sides.”

OUCH!

Ships and Boats, Arks and Barques

Have you ever noticed that there are several stories in Holy Scripture regarding ships and boats being tossed about in a tempest, and that all of those who remained aboard were saved?

Noah’s Ark saved only eight people, Noah and his wife, their three sons, Sem, Ham, and Japeth, and their wives. When the great flood came, whoever was not in the Ark perished and was not saved.

Genesis 7:13-23. This Noah’s Ark Old Testament story is a type of the ‘Ark’ of the New Testament, the Catholic Church. 

Noah built an ark:

Hebrews 11:7, “By faith Noah, having been warned concerning things not seen as yet, prepared with pious fear an ark in which to save his household. Having thus condemned the world, he was made heir of the justice which is through faith.”
