The Lord compares our Judgment Day of May 21, 2011 with Noah's Flood in 2 Peter 3 & Matthew 24.
(2 Peter 3:6-7 KJV)
Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
Seven days warning...
(Genesis 7:4 KJV)
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 off the face of the earth.
(2 Peter 3:8 KJV)
But beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one dayis with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Noah had 7 days to enter the Ark before the day of judgment came.
God's people had 7,000 years to enter the "Ark" before Judgment Day in the year 2011.
God gave us 7,000 years from the Flood of 4990BC until the year 2011 - remembering that there is no year "0" going from BC to AD.
