THE SEARCH FOR NOAH’S FLOOD
There is overwhelming geological evidence that a global flood, as depicted in the story of Noah in the biblical book of Genesis, could have happened.
The story of Noah’s Ark and the Great Flood is one of the most famous from the Bible, and underwater archaeologists think they have found proof that the biblical flood was actually based on real events.
The first book of the Bible, the book of Genesis, chapters 6 to 8, tells about a great world-wide flood. Such a major universal flood would surely leave much evidence.
- V-shaped valleys and river deltas suggest a recent (ca. 3000 BC) flood.
- All written history begins ca. 3000 BC.
- Foundations of cities began then, families of mankind began then and genealogies date back then.
- A rock is dated solely by its fossils, not by rough estimates of millions of years.
- Carbon dating, with C14, is not useful in dating before 5000 BC according to the discoverer of the method.
It is clear from the biblical account that there was a universal flood about 3000 BC. The biblical account did not derive from other literature. It is eyewitness testimony.
WHY GOD SENT THE FLOOD
The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” . . . God looked on the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence because of them; and, behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth” Genesis 6:7–13
WAS THE FLOOD OF NOAH GLOBAL OR LOCAL IN EXTENT?
“The waters prevailed, and greatly increased on the earth. . . . And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. . . . and the mountains were covered.” Genesis 7:18,19
God’s Word only makes physical and scientific sense if the Flood were global in extentOf course, the flood story is incompatible with the theory of evolution, which holds that mutation is a slow, random, and most of all,
“And all flesh died that moved upon the earth. . . every creeping thing . . . and every man: All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground. . . . They were destroyed from the earth. . . . And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.” Genesis 7:21–24
The description of the Flood is not hard to understandWe are told that the “fountains of the great deep” burst open and poured wateronto the earth’s surface for 150 days (five months)Simultaneously, and for the same length of time, the “floodgates of heaven” were open, producing torrential global rainfall. Genesis 6–8
We do find—billions of fossils of animals and plants buried in sedimentary rock layers stretching across every continent all around the globe. So instead of taking millions of years to form, most of the fossil-bearing sedimentary rock layers, as seen in the walls of the Grand Canyon and elsewhere, could have formed rapidly during the year of this global catastrophic Flood of Noah. The depositing processes must have been rapid, or fossils could not have been preserved in them.
Each distinctive stratum was laid down quickly, since it obviously represents a uniform set of water flow conditions, and such uniformity never persists very long. Each set of strata in a given formation must also have been deposited in rapid succession,
The worldwide flood resulted in “billions of dead things buried in the ground swept along by turbulent floodwaters and deposited, tsunami-style, along with the sediment forming the rock layers as we see in the Grand Canyon.
Flood geologists believe that layers of sedimentary rock exposed across continents, such as observed at the Grand Canyon. They observe that strata standing far above sea level contain marine (sea) fossils and therefore conclude that they must have been deposited by high levels of water that covered the continents during the deluge.
Heat and pressure from below SLOWLY raise the strata to become dry land mechanism based on the present experience of earthquakes and volcanoes, which also explain marine fossils found on mountains.
The deluge ought to be believed according to the Scripture, as a miracle, and not to be proved by natural rules. Few of the more than 100,000 species of plants or their seeds could survive submersion in water for a year.
Without a miracle, three quarters of the globe’s vegetation would necessarily have perished. Also, without another second creation, the diverse animals that we see would not have happened. The theory of evolution can be safely put to sleep if indeed, there was a universal flood.
There were not that many original species so there were fewer problems to fit them inside the ark. Land bridges once existed between the continents and oceans were much smaller to allow transport of animals to distant islands after the flood.
Bits of green schist, a type of rock found in the mountains far upstream and mud stone, were uncovered at sites all along the Yellow River. The sediments appeared in layers much thicker than was normal for the river, indicating that they had been deposited swiftly by a massive flood.
There was evidence that trees were rapidly ripped up and transported from another location by water and dumped in place at the same time that repeated volcanic eruptions were layering the area with ash and breccia.
THE ROCKS DON’T LIE
The process of liquefaction is associated with quicksand, earthquakes, and wave action. Massive liquefaction plays a major role in rapidly sorting sediments, plants, and animals during the flood. Indeed, the global presence of such layers and sorted fossils shows that a global flood occurred.
HOW DID LIFE EVOLVE ON EARTH?
DIVINE INTELLIGENCE IS EVER PRESENT
Socrates’ world contains a multiplicity of gods. Socrates was not the first to speak of the gods as creators. According to him, the whole world, including lower animal species, has been created for human benefit. This became a pillar of religion. If the gods have done all this for us, we enjoy a unique relationship with them, one which we should express in religious devotion. Socrates became the inventor of the ‘Argument from Design’ . This argument is expanded by the physicist, Albert Einstein. Although not a Christian believer, he perceived God in the wonders of the universe. When asked by an interviewer if he was an atheist, he replied:
“I’m not an atheist. The problem involved is too vast for our limited minds. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. It does not understand the languages in which they are written. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see the universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws but only dimly understand these laws.”
The Bible points us to the natural world around us – living things as well as the heavens and the earth to learn about God. Psalm 19:1-4 states: “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” Everywhere we look, if we take but a moment to try to see in a fresh way, nature speaks of divine qualities. “What may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made” Romans 1:19-20 Seas and winds, mountains and trees, sun, moon, and stars, and all the animals and people have become sacred windows offering us glimpses of God.
Divine Life can Grow Every Day.
“I love you. When I came to live among you I brought the gift of divine life to you and to all My friends. This gift cost Me great suffering and death on the cross. I atoned for all your sins and I made all of you My brother and My sister through the gift of sanctifying grace which is divine life. All Christians who are free from mortal sin have the gift of divine life in their hearts. They are united with Me and they journey with Me all through life. The only thing that destroys divine life in the soul is serious sin. I restore divine life in souls through repentance. Divine life can grow and can be enriched every day in your hearts through prayer and good acts. The greater the relationship between us, the stronger divine life is in you. Think of the vine and the branches. You know that I am the vine and you are the branches. For you to bear much fruit you must remain in Me. Open your heart to Me every day. I love you all.”
These messages came to Father Melvin Doucette:
Fr. Melvin Doucette was ordained to the priesthood on and joined the Missionaries of Africa for 29 years in Africa. In contemplative prayer every morning, Fr. Doucette receives by interior locution “messages from heaven” to share with the public.
God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17 (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions. Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in China in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today. In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family. The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ. No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY.
BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!
Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is a relationship with God, your Creator, in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles. How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ. http://godloveletters.com/god-healing/
Many Christian disciples use the gift of healing. They also use deliverance to deliver away evil spirits influencing people. These evil spirits cause depression, addictions and illness through all forms of stress. Only the Name of Jesus Christ makes healing and deliverance possible. http://godloveletters.com/experiment-gods-touch/
HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?
Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered. This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise. He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical sense of peace.
DREAMS AND VISIONS
God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart. God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?
- Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.”
- Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
- Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength.
- Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
- Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
- Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
- Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.
Christianity on a Table Napkin:
“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9
God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin. “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.” Luke 1: 49 Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”? And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you. “Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”. Isaiah 1:18 You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
