    Was there a flood before Noah's flood ?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Genesis 1
    If there was a world wide flood before or after Noah the bible or history didn't record it. But to prove there was a world wide flood, you can come to my place in the Alabama mountains around me and I'll take you up on the mountain near me and we can dig for sea shells and find them. And I live over 200 miles from the Gulf. You probably can do the same in the hills near you, where ever you live. Noahs flood is true.

    God bless you brother Robert

    From Genesis 1:2 - ...darkness was over the surface of the deep... This verse does make it look like there was a created world which then was covered by something (perhaps ice or water) and then at a future time we read the quoted verse about "the surface of the deep".

    The Lord in His mercy has not given to us information about the earth before Genesis. That does NOT mean there was nothing before then. It simply means it is not for us to know now. So to answer your question: Yes, there could have been floods before Noah's flood.

    The best thing to do is to love the Lord Jesus with all your heart; then, one day you will see Him, and at that time you can ask Him whatever you want.

    Peace and love in Christ

    No there was no rain before the flood
  • Rain in Genesis - in Reply on Genesis 1
    There was a mist. Like wet humidity; not actual rain showers. That's why the towns laughed at Noah's preaching that a flood was coming. They hadn't seen rain yet.

    There was rain before the flood. How do you think plants and humans lived. Just no rain like the great rain in Noahs days. 40 days and 40 nights of heavy rain.

    Genesis 2:6 , says earth was watered from a mist that rose from the the earth,, the flood was the first time it rained from the sky

    There are scriptures in Genesis that explain SOME (not all) about the pre-Adamic world.

    A word of caution: there are Cults that teach something called Old Earth Theory. It was used to explain archeology, geology, space exploration, ancient religions, dinosaurs, really old human bones.

    Although some of these things are alluded to; does not mean a separate book was included in the Bible, or Canonized. God did not Authorize "old earth theory". There is the danger of heresy. Avoid that.

    The entire Bible IS ABOUT Jesus Christ. He's practically on every page. If you miss that reality, then you can be drawn away by the Lust for self-importance. (Pride). Ego and arrogance.

    The way to deep study the Bible is to get a Study Bible with a CENTER of Each Page Reference Bible. The abc's imbedded in a scripture correspond to a letter in the Center column. You have to stop where you are and go read all of those notes. Those notes will lead you to even more expanded teaching. Ya gotta make notebooks full of notes: how you got from "here", to "there", and everything in between. Skip it. Go buy some Grant Jeffreys books.

    This is why I do not engage in Genesis arguments. Question is: how deep is your relationship to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit? What is your personal knowledge of, the Knowledge of the Holy? (That's a scripture)

    I think, given this TIME in history [His-Story], we should concentrate on the prophesy of Daniel 12:5-13.

    WE are the generation that will know what that Chapter has hidden for a very long time. They're coming unsealed. Life and goings on, all over this planet are being unsealed.

    Don't get distracted now. Who stands to benefit with us being distracted and led away on fake mystery hunts? Satan.

    Be relevant to the signs of the Times. Matthew 24:34, Matthew 25:35
