Jesus warned us “As in the days of Noah, so too will the coming of the Son of Man be.” JWs and many other “Christians” only look to the next bit of the verse to see that no one will be paying attention and want to imagine that’s the whole of the prophecy.
But there was A LOT more going on in Noah’s day than just eating and drinking and being given in marriage. When Jesus was alive, part of their well known and often referred to scripture included the book of Enoch, see the letter of Jude for proof of that. Anyone who has not read or heard the book of Enoch NEEDS to. Here’s a link to an audio version
The Book of Enoch (also 1 Enoch; Ge'ez: መጽሐፈ ሄኖክ mets’iḥāfe hēnoki) is an ancient Jewish religious work, ascribed by tradition to Enoch, the great-grandfather of Noah. The older sections (mainly in the Book of the Watchers) of the text are estima…

I know it’s not of the 66 book canonical text, BUT please consider WHO commissioned the selecting of the 66 books and WHO carried out the job. A Roman Emperor and the Roman Catholic Church. Need I say more? LoL! Also, the number 66 is very suspicious IMO.
Probably few people are actually going to read the book of Enoch, so I will include the key points which tell us what it was like to be living in the days of Noah.
We all know there were giants on the earth in those days, specifically there were the “Nephilim”, which were abominations of fallen angels and human women. But if we consider the prevalence of mythical creatures throughout the ancient world in the forms of half animal half human hybrids, is it really a big stretch to conclude that PERHAPS the fallen angels were copulating with animals as well as humans? OR PERHAPS some of the “knowledge” the fallen angels imparted to mankind was the knowledge of genetics and splicing? Both of which could have resulted in creatures like mermaids, centaurs, etc...
What would be the purpose for the fallen angels to do such things? Go back to Genesis 3:15 “And I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring. He will crush your head, and you will strike him in the heel.” This is the declaration of what is known as “The Seed War” Satan knew that his destruction would come by virtue of the WOMAN’S offspring (seed). So what happened in Genesis 6 was Satan’s attempt to corrupt the “generations” (genetics) of mankind with the seed of fallen angels and/or animals. Manipulate the DNA, mankind is no longer “fully human”, thus the seed of the woman is no longer just the seed of a human woman and then Satan can “win” against God on a technicality. Notice what Genesis 6:9 says about Noah and his “generations” (genetics) “These are the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, and **perfect in his generations**: Noah walked with God.” (American Standard Version) The NWT really messed this verse up... all other translations have “perfect in his generations” and that is the key point. Noah’s GENERATIONS (genetics) were Perfectly HUMAN, not corrupted by the fallen angels or the knowledge they had brought to mankind to corrupt their DNA.
Everyone needs to look into this and learn about this. Our lives depend on it! Our souls depend on it!
