Genesis 7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.
God says the seven day period He spoke of concluded on the 17th day of the second month of Noah's calendar.
And 7000 years later----ON THE 17TH DAY OF THE 2ND MONTH OF THE HEBREW/BIBLICAL CALENDAR---God shut the door of heaven and began His final judgment of mankind.
Where's the problem? There is none. It fits perfectly with what we have learned about Gods judgment.
The problem isn't with the date the Bible has locked in. The problem actually lies with those that do not like what the locking in of this date means. They do not like the fact that God shut the door of Noah's ark on the 17th day of the month and it matches up perfectly with God shutting the door of heaven exactly after a 23 year, 8400 day tribulation period, on the date of May 21, 2011, which had as an underlying Hebrew calendar date the 17th day of the 2nd month.
This conclusion of a shut door and the end of salvation is reprehensible to some individuals. They simply do not like it because they want salvation to continue on. They have children, grand children, and other loved ones. Well, personally, so do I desire that salvation continue on. It would ease the sorrow I feel for my own loved ones and others I know. But we do not and cannot teach the Bible according to our own personal desires. We cannot allow subjective feelings and wants to influence our understanding of the things the Bible says. Isn't that exactly what many false gospels do? Their desire in wanting easy believism is based on wanting others to experience salvation. This is nothing but the perversion of a right and good desire.
Likewise, when we allow our personal desire for the salvation of our children or others to influence our Bible study it turns something good into something evil and wicked.
However, God will keep His elect on the straight path of truth. He will continue to guide them into the way they should go even though it be grievous and sorrowful at this time. We cannot speak but the words that God has permitted us to speak. As servants of God we are not in control of the opening and closing of the door of heaven. No. That's entirely God's business. And when God told us that a great door and effectual was opened up to the world during the latter rain period, we rejoiced in telling the whole world to approach and seek unto God crying for mercy with the hope of possibly having His grace bestowed upon you. And now, since May 21, 2011, we have no option other than to report to all the true condition of the doorway to heaven. We as humble doorkeepers can only tell you the status of the door. It is now shut. God shut it. It's His doing.
Genesis 7:16 And they that went in, went in male and female of all flesh, as God had commanded him: and the LORD shut him in.
