A Parallel Creation

Surprising dovetails between creation and the flood

Many end-time signs are encoded in the days of Noah, just as Christ reminded His followers: “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man” (Luke 17:26). Often overlooked, however, are the parallels between the original creation account and the new creation established after the flood. Take note of these similarities and see that the flood was actually a re-creation of God’s original plan.

During the first act of creation, “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters” (Gen. 1:2, KJV). At the re-creation after the flood, “The ark went upon the face of the waters” (Gen. 7:18).

In Eden, God blessed the first couple and commanded them to be fruitful, multiply and replenish the earth (Gen. 1:28). After the flood, “God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them: ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth’” (Gen. 9:1, NKJV).

In the original creation act, “God made the beast of the earth according to its kind, cattle according to its kind, and everything that creeps on the earth according to its kind” (Gen. 1:25). In the Noah account, we read God instructing him, “Bring out with you every living thing of all flesh that is with you: birds and cattle and every creeping thing” (Gen. 8:17).

God’s plan for mankind was for him to “have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth, and over every creeping thing” (Gen 1:26). 

God gave a similar promise to Noah after the flood: “The fear of you and the dread of you shall be on every beast of earth, on every bird of the air, on all that move on the earth, and on all the fish of the sea” (Gen. 9:2).
