With the fire of God, and the truth in hand,
We’ll see miracles, we’ll see angels sing,
We’ll see broken hearts making history,
Yes, it’s true and I believe it,
We’re living for You.

I’m gonna be a history maker in this land,
I’m gonna be a speaker of truth to all mankind,
I’m gonna stand, I’m gonna run,
Into Your arms, into Your arms again,
Into Your arms.

You can do it, yeah.’

Good Advice On Staying Safe Video Just Got Deleted: It Was Only A Humor Piece!

Without Free Speech, Censorship, Propaganda and Dictatorships Succeed.

Facebook removed the below video from my wall earlier. It was just humour! I’d managed to put it on my U Tube before FB deleted it. Please see it below on my blog, before they also delete it! It seems that Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and some other social media platforms have a more strict censorship than many blogs, but no doubt that will change in the future.

Freedom Of Speech is well past dead. Censorship is rife now. Many of us who have been censored before learned that we have to even use funny abbreviated code words, that seem you’re mentally ill! Why? Just to get past the computerised buzz words, that are within the inbuilt algorithms. These detect anything that could be seen as ‘fake news, etc.’ But the video deleted from my wall and many other walls was purely a humour piece.

The title I gave it was something like this:

”Confused over instructions for handling COVID 19? This clears up conflicting advice from the UN, World Health Organisation, to all governmental advice panels of the world.”

 

 

So, I’ve taken a screenshot of it on my U Tube channel, before they delete it too! See below.

u tube deleted my vids pic

YouTube Delete One Of My Videos Too!

Friends, in addition, a YouTube video I uploaded of a sweet pastor in hospital, was deleted from my YouTube channel. There was nothing in it that was bad. In fact, the exact same video is still on other YouTube channels!!!

Please see the other copies of it on the YouTube channels, I’ve put on my other article below, to see just how ridiculous it is they deleted it. Again, it’s not the first time this has happened on my YouTube channel

PLEASE CLICK BELOW – ON MY OTHER BLOG ARTICLE WITH DETAILS ON IT:

My Video Got Deleted: God Healed A Dying Irish Patient In Hospital, Survivor, Lee McClelland.

 

How Censorship and Propaganda Succeeds.

That clever quote from Mark Twain, can be used to emphasise how societies often fail to see when their countries squash freedom of speech, bringing in censorship, that can lead to a totalitarian, dictatorship, like so many nations have done throughout history. Think of China, for example, where the populace are discouraged from airing any opinions which may criticise their government.

The Coming Awakening: Videos of COVID-19 World Prayer on The Streets to Encourage You!

Video Collection of World Prayer on The Streets.

Please see my below YouTube Playlist!

Acts 2:17.

‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.’

Seeds of Biblical Revival: The Mainstream Media Is Not Reporting These Positive Events!

Meanwhile, many churches in the west are too afraid, treating their Governments like they’re God. I can’t imagine Jesus or the disciples staying home during global lock-down. They’d be down healing the sick on the beach, on hilltops, or market places, with army/police on the streets, martial law or not! Paul and Silas too, even though they’d get jailed for it! See Book of Acts 16:16-40.

God Is Full Of Compassion.

I totally feel for people who are gripped with anxiety or fears. I really care for my fellow believers who feel this way too. The Lord is patient and compassionate with us all, whatever stage we are at on our journey with Him. We are all a work in progress and only Jesus is perfect and 100% fear free.

What a great example the people of the Bible are for us to take courage! If they were here now, they’d be surely praying and healing the masses on the streets, even during the Last Days of The Great Tribulation, in the Book of Revelation; even amidst wars, famines, earthquakes, walking in such supernatural power of God. Many of them even got martyred for their faith, as we all know. How wonderful to grow so spiritually to become like them!

Stir Your Faith, Resist Fears.

Please, hear my heart. I’m truly not trying to blame, condemn, or make folks feel guilty, but honestly trying to encourage believers to take a small step of faith with Jesus. Just one step at a time, just one day at a time, holding His loving Hand.

I’m obeying the laws friends, yet I’ve still managed to pray for folks on the bus, or in the shops, yes, even at the ‘safe social distance’ apart.

Am I totally fearless? No, not at all, of course I’m not.

Am I racing at the front of the battle, feeling like Gideon, or David slinging a rock at the giant Goliath? Am I looking to get myself martyred? No, I don’t have a death wish, lol!!! But, if we do feel led by God, it’s good to pray for boldness, step out of the boat and walk on water to Jesus. As many street preachers will say, it is really worth it friends, to see people accept Jesus, or get healed before your eyes.

Incredible Opportunities Worldwide.

This global crisis is indeed unprecedented but actually a wonderful opportunity to share the gospel with others.

And also to grow in our own walk with God, as it forces us to get closer to Him. What the enemy means to harm, God can turn it around to bless. During easy times we can get spiritually lazy. But all through history we see times of crises and even times of war and persecution was when the people of God grew strong, if they kept their focus on Him rather than the raging storms around them.

A Global Awakening To Jesus Christ.

Also, we know from history that crises, persecution and even times of war often came just before a great and powerful move of God, often called a revival or an awakening. As if the enemy himself tried to hinder a great outpouring of God’s power. Just when the enemy thinks he has won, suddenly we see a mighty harvest of souls being converted to Jesus worldwide! Hallelujah!

The Coming False Light And Awakening.

Do be aware of the false light and awakening, ‘christ consciousness’, also known as Age of Aquarius, and so on. I  believed in it when I was a New Ager and Spiritualist. Many groups of spiritual people globally are predicting this ‘awakening’, even meditating for it, believing it’ll be a time of peace on earth, where bible believing Christians will either join them, or ‘leave’ the planet! This end times global genocide of bible believing Christians has been predicted in famous new age and freemasonry books down the generations, I’m not making this up!

Often, it is their alleged ‘spirit guides,’ ‘dead relatives’, or ‘angels’ who channel such ‘predictions’ to them. Please see on this blog, the many testimonies of former new agers, yogi’s, psychic mediums, shamans, freemasons and others who discovered such ‘spirits, guides, ghosts,’ etc, were the deceiving evil spirits the bible speaks of, and how they banished them in Jesus name!

Also, please notice, famous new age sites actually refer to Lucifer as being the true messiah figure, the one who will bring peace to earth. Sadly, many new age truthers, and other spiritual groups, although they do expose satanic groups, the elite cabal, corrupt governments, etc, they themselves believe in Lucifer too.  (See The Lucis Trust site for example. The Lucis Trust is linked to the UN and WHO). https://www.lucistrust.org/arcane_school/talks_and_articles/descent_and_sacrifice

As I’ve shared on this blog before, the plan is to draw people away from the biblical Jesus Christ, preparing them for the ‘false christ’, the Bible warns about.

Yes, many billions globally can come to Jesus in these last days, but the bible also says many will be deceived by the antichrist.

Take A Step Of Faith!

You don’t have to be a street preacher, a pastor, or minister to talk or pray for folks! All of us can do this.

Did Jesus not say in the Bible, in John 14:12-14?

‘Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.’  

And in Matthew 10:8

Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.’

And in Acts 2:17, we read:

‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.’

Are these not the last days? Yes, they are.

We all know of people having dreams and visions now! No longer are visions, healings, miracles, etc, only given to the prophets or apostles as in the Bible. Nowadays, any Christian can do such things and ARE doing such things, just as the Bible promised.

So, be encouraged dear friends! If you’ve never done this before, this is a great time to start!

Telephone And Online Prayer.

You can still pray over the phone for people, over Facebook, or Skype! People are open to kindness, prayer and salvation right now.

Be 100% wise indeed, but also be led by the Holy Spirit. We don’t need to act stupid or get ourselves jailed, but yes, we can still show God’s love and use His gifts of healing and so on!

Remember the bracelets we used to wear, ‘What Would Jesus Do’?

Yes, many billions globally can come to Jesus in these last days, but the bible also says many will be deceived by the antichrist.

Countless Christians worldwide have shared this for many decades and continue to. Many, including myself and friends, have shared on TV, radio and my blog before, the Luciferian Plan: To draw people away from the biblical Jesus Christ, preparing them for the new age messiah, or ‘false christ’, the Bible warns about. It is a privilege friends, for us to share these truths and see many come to Christ in these last days, in Jesus name.

Laura Maxwell.

Wow, F B re moved this from my wall earlier, and from my U Tub e now too… Please see copies of it below on my blog, before they also del -ete it! Freed omOfs peach is well past dead. Sense or ship is rife now. You have to even use cod e words to get by the compter ised buz swords, Al Go and his rythms.

Please let me explain what’s happening. I’m not mentally ill, we have to use abbreviatied code like words to get by the ‘fak …e news filters’. My husband uploaded my last few YouTube videos for me, he knows my work has been deleted before. He’s got a PhD doctorate and runs a hospital lab, I’m not mentally ill and I didn’t delete them myself!

Many of us have had posts or videos removed. I’m sure you not noticed it yet! It’s a blatant serious Free dom ov peach sense or ship issue. Look below plz, I’d copied the video from this exact same version of it on a YouTube channel, that’s had 474,784 views since Apr 5th. Another channel also has it. It’s not been deleted from their channels. Why mine? Coz my channel has filters on it, stuff has been deleted from my U Tube, Facebk and Blog b4, as I expose stuff about the occult in high places! If what I wrote was not a threat, or total nonsense, they wouldn’t need to delete it. Go figure!

U tube first said they’d take this off my channel 7 days from now, giving me time to appeal it!

PLEASE WATCH AND SHARE HIS ENCOURAGING STORY BELOW:

u tube pic

Close Up Of It:

u tube pic 1

They said they’d give me 7 days to review it but now, only hours later, it’s already deleted, before I was given time to request the appeal! So, indeed, they are even going against their own ‘rules’ of appeal!!!

If you watch the video, there’s nothing in it against their so called YouTube Community Guidelines. It’s a very sweet and encouraging video! Because it has content with spiritual beliefs, that’s no reason to delete it! Freedom of Speech is meant to be critical. Even if I believe something irrational like my mobile phone is God, I should still be allowed to air my opinion, even if it’s stupid!

It’s not about Trump. He wrote it before he became president of USA!

 

AND

BEYOND EARTHLY REALMS.

 

Author and broadcaster Jason Carter, wrote the following article. You may remember TV and radio broadcasts featuring myself and my good friend and fellow host on Eternal Radio, Jason Carter. I highly recommend his articles.

Coronavirus and Global Power by Jason Carter.

Please also watch Jason’s below video. It contains extra information, not included in his article here.

Global power lies in the grasp of the few. Their idea is not power for the people, but power for themselves. This is the intrinsic difference between globalism and populism. Globalism shackles the masses while populism (although imperfect) generally attempts to free the individual and uplifts a nation. Perfect government is Jesus coming theocratic rule.

Globalism looks towards a totalitarian world government, the kind prophesied in the bible, ruling the peoples anti-democratically by implementing complex deals and agreements, trade, health, averting so-called global catastrophes, enacting wars and so on. These drive tyrannical global policies into law through fear, giving more power into globalist hands and continued stripping away of sovereignty from nations.

 “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that, it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Rahm Emanuel, former Chief of Staff to Barack Obama.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.” David Rockefeller.

In any other circumstance these new laws would be flatly rejected by the people, but while in a state of panic, instilled and propped up by the mainstream media’s relentless drumming in of whatever the current crises maybe, the people are not in a position to see objectively.

Hegelian Dialectic

They are bombarded relentlessly with fear stories. They are reduced to individual panicked survival, rather than seeing the true global picture before them.

It is the propagandists best trick in the book, utilised by Hitler and his minister of propaganda – they said ‘relentless repetition’ was the key to getting the people to believe what they wanted. They planned cable TV to get that box into every home. They knew the power television could hold over the masses. Today TV is in every room in the house, in our pockets and worn like jewellery upon our wrists. Repetition is everywhere. Our thoughts are not our own. The propagandists dream has been realised.

The people are panicking and want an end to their media imagined nightmares. There is a power button of course. The information could be stopped in an instant but the user is addicted. In the meantime anything is accepted when fear controls the individual. Notice how many levels of control can be exerted over the entire global community just by fear-mongering over a virus.

Notice how they prioritised the reporting of Coronavirus during Brexit coverage – a historical moment for the UK – programming the masses with what really mattered. Not Brexit, but disease. Not freedom, but fetters. That is how they embed fear. That is how they attempted to disempower Brexit.

This is Antichrist installing tactics at its best. Propaganda has the power to override nations, shut down nations, cripple growing economies, close public gatherings, control church events and even quarantine pastors, enact martial law, take away liberty and freedom. Stop travel. All this is happening and on the whim of a virus that will soon be yesterday’s news. Along with all the other calamities that should have killed us all by now.

Prince Charles spouted doom at the 2009 climate conference – but we are still here. Time to wake up and see crisis events for what they really are. Crisis = fear = more control = totalitarian end.

This is the dystopian future. Like the slow boiling frog that doesn’t realise what’s happening before it is too late. It is a clever way to control the masses, one crises after another, especially when they are losing the information war. They have got to throw a spanner in the works to halt the uprising, to halt the progress, to halt the moving away from a globalist ideology. The brainwashed people are waking up. They don’t want them to see that there’s another way. A liberating and empowering way, where power returns to the people.

George Orwell quote – From Trumpet Blast Warning by Jason Carter.

Some crisis real, some seized upon and exaggerated, others flat out fake, but all disseminated directly through the mainstream media who should by now be completely untrusted. They are are the enemy of the people. News, dramas, documentaries, Hollywood films, actors, music…all with one single message….globalism, pro the system, anti the family, undermine traditional family and gender, destroy community, and look to government as the only hope.

Confidence in the mainstream news should be at an all time low by now. It is surprising the sway it still holds on the populace – the fake news isn’t where we’ve been told to look, it’s right under our noses, spouted by those who are themselves propagating fake news. Objective balanced journalism does not exist anymore – the news is the mouthpiece for the globalist monopoly. Crises events are used as a means to further their agenda.

I’ll never forget what Rahm Emanuel, the chief advisor under Obama, who I believe is now Mayor of Chicago, once said, (from memory, so maybe not a perfect quote), – “You never let a serious crisis go to waste, and by that I mean you can do things you couldn’t do before.” We have seen this time and time again. Government seizing opportunity to clamp down on its citizens through crisis both real and fake.

 

Keep our eyes on Jesus, especially during these end times.

Jesus settles the problem. Believers have not a spirit of fear. For those who fear have not been perfected. JESUS peace disables fear, peace therefore disables the globalist programming. Peace takes us into the real world and out of the fabricated media world to think for ourselves. Peace takes us into freedom, out of fear, and free to live our lives the way we want, without it being dictated to by those who only want to control it.

Jesus said, “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own but will tell you what he has heard. He will tell you about the future. John 14:27; John 16:13

Jesus is the only one we should be listening to, not the mainstream media.

God bless you all.

By Author and broadcaster Jason Carter.

Jason and I discussed this yesterday. I mentioned that we can share the Gospel with as many as possible. Amongst the fear and illness, we can lead many people to Jesus, pray for the sick to be healed and show the love of Jesus by bringing food to our neighbours and so on.

We all will die one day, whether of this virus or something else. It’s crucial people know the Lord and will enter heaven after death. The Lord wants none to perish in hell. Jason agreed with me.

So, don’t panic, instead let’s take the opportunity to keep sharing the truths about Christ and His salvation, while we can!

God bless you all,

Laura Maxwell.

Disarming the Fear Pandemic: A Vital Message for the Church in This Hour.

Do Not Fear: A Message For Believers On Coronavirus.

Eternal Radio Hosts Jason and Laura with Stephen and Valma Merrick.

You may remember TV and radio broadcasts featuring myself and my good friend and cohost on Eternal Radio, Jason Carter.

Author and broadcaster Jason Carter, wrote the following article.

Disarming the Fear Pandemic: A Vital Message for the Church in This Hour.

What is the root cause of fear? Simply put, it is the fear of dying.

I know a Christian man whose wife was having a panic attack. He quipped; “What’s the worse that could happen? You die, and go home to be with the Lord!” His comment immediately arrested her anxiety as she realised what would follow.

Some Christians fear death. This is evidenced by their panicked reaction to external threats in our world. Some believers are fearful of catching the Coronavirus. Yes, we must be wise to protect ourselves, just as we would the common cold or flu, but we must not let the fear of death be the driving force.

Jesus expressly told us to not be afraid of those who can kill the body but after that can do no more. (Luke 12:4)

You see, there is an ‘after that’. For the believer, their lives gloriously continue the moment they die.

Death is but an exciting gateway into a continuation of the journey with their Heavenly Father in the bright presence of the Son for all eternity. It is where they are rejoined with their believing loved ones, amid the throngs of angels in heavenly chorus.

In light of this biblical reality, what on earth is there to fear?

Unfortunately the word ‘death’ doesn’t really help to convey a positive experience. The term itself evokes finality – a fearful expectation of the unknown or an outer darkness.

However, the Apostle Paul knew differently. He described death as sleep. Paul referred to the believers who ‘sleep in death’, and ‘who have fallen asleep.’
(1 Thessalonians 4:13-15; 1 Corinthians 15:18).

Jesus also described the dead girls condition as that of sleeping. Of the dead and entombed Lazarus, Jesus declared he was sleeping and would wake him up.

To understand that for the believer, sleep is merely occurring, changes everything. Sleep doesn’t evoke feelings of fear, but rather the opposite – PEACE!

The Psalmist wrote; “In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8)

For Stephen, who met a violent end by stoning, the bible records that he saw Jesus welcome him and then he fell asleep. For the believer, even a painful end can be a peaceful one with Jesus.

For the Christian, death is not to be feared, even in the slightest. The apostle Paul had no fear of death. He said, ‘to be absent from the body was to be at home with the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 5:8). He should know. Paul was no stranger to heaven and was caught up there during his life. That is why he could confidently declare; “Where oh death is your sting?” Indeed. For the Christian, where is it?

Fear is being used right now as a weapon, deployed through the mainstream media, in an unprecedented global control of the masses. But it can only work on those who are afraid to die.

Once we come to understand that death is merely sleeping and awakening in the bright presence of Jesus, then there can be no fear! As we sing in church, ‘death was arrested’.

Knowing this, we walk through the valley of the shadow of death fearlessly (Psalm 23:4). With this understanding we become free. Fear has thus been disarmed.

We are no longer under fears control and the peace of Christ rules in our hearts. (Colossians 3:15)

We are enabled to clearly hear Jesus personally tell us; “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid,” (John 14:27)

Hallelujah!

More virulent than the Coronavirus is the fear being propagated by it. Fear is enabling an unprecedented move by the globalist powers. As the people cower in fear, Orwellian laws are being rushed through to control the populace.

Journalist Mae Brussell said, ‘Once the people are terrorised, you can force a police state on them.’ This insidious technique is a long established mechanism for governmental control.

Right now it is happening before our very eyes. Stories abound. In Denmark alone the police will be able to enter a house without a permit and forcibly put people into isolation. The stage is being set for a later detention of undesirables. In 2019 Denmark already begun a purging of new testament Christianity. This resulted in the fleeing of believers to other countries. As of April 2019 a law was passed making it illegal to cast out demons.

These draconian laws will remain, just as they did way after the events of 9/11 with the Patriot Act. This law vastly expanded the US Government’s authority to spy on its citizens, even without evidence of illegal activity.

The Coronavirus is one of many tools being used to implement global control of the citizens. It is an unprecedented move. It is of biblical proportions. Note that according to scripture, disease will be unleashed and sorcery (Greek – ‘pharmakeia’) aka the pharmaceutical industry will work in tandem (disease and cure, disease and cure…) These two components will be used as part of the plan to control the planet. Revelation 6:8; 18:23.

Through this crisis the globalists are making a bold move in order to regain lost ground during the populist uprising. What the Holy Spirit warned me of in 2009 is now speedily rolling out across the planet.

Persecution is on the horizon. But it is not a time to allow fear to control. On the contrary it is a time to rise in the courageous spirit of Daniel – to prepare for a future in which we refuse to bow to a system that will require a compromise of our faith.

In the face of tyranny, fear must be disarmed. Fear is the weapon to initiate control. Disarm fear – disarm the enemy. The bible says, “The fear of man brings a snare. But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe.” (Proverbs 29:25)

We must supernaturally TRUST in the Lord, above a fear-mongering mainstream media.
Turning it off would be a good first step. The next step would be to expose fear and thereby disarm the enemy at the gates. I will write about this in Part 2.

Jesus said; “Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

Now would be a good time to receive a revelation of Jesus and His peace in this hour.

God bless you all.

By Author and broadcaster Jason Carter.

Jason and I discussed this today. I mentioned that we can share the Gospel with as many as possible. Amongst the fear and illness, we can lead many people to Jesus, pray for the sick to be healed and show the love of Jesus by bringing food to our neighbours and so on. We all will die one day, whether of this virus or something else. It’s crucial people know the Lord and will enter heaven after death. The Lord wants none to perish in hell. Jason agreed with me.

So, don’t panic, instead let’s take the opportunity to keep sharing the truths about Christ and His salvation, while we can!

God bless you all,

Laura Maxwell.

New Ager Seeks Truth: Natalia Lavaggi and Psychic Power, Channelling Guides, Energy Healing, Tarot, DNA Activation, Universe, Twin Flame, and Akashic Records to Freedom.

Natalia Lavaggi channelled spirit guides. Believing: we are all just ‘energy’; Universe as our Source; One Mind; Awakening her Higher Self; Law of Attraction; reading The Secret; Akashic Records; Hindu Gurus; Yoga; Karma; Clearing Blocked Chakras; Meditation; developing Psychic Powers; Energy Healing; Pantheistic View; Metaphysical Workshops; certain Holistic new age practices in Beauty Salons… the list of her new age beliefs and practises goes on!

Natalia Lavaggi

Then, spirits began to attack her! She experienced ‘Sleep Paralysis’. They tried to strangle her, choke her, chasing her in her dreams. Her child even saw the Evil Eye in his room. She purged her home of many books and anything she’d used for divination purposes, crystals, etc.

Through Jesus Name and His power, she got free from their grip. Natalia sees a huge difference between the new age, mystical and eastern practises and an authentic loving relationship with Jesus.

It’s not about new age rituals or ascending, trying to improve and become enlightened, working out our karma, etc. It’s not about us, it’s about Him! He already died on the cross for us and will cleanse and transform us if we ask and follow Him as our Saviour!

Noah’s Great Flood Was Historically Global.

The Flood was historically global, not hyperbolically global.

A review of The Lost World of the Flood: Mythology, theology, and the deluge debate by Tremper Longman III and John H. Walton, with a contribution by Stephen O. Moshier InterVarsity Press, Downers Grove, IL, 2018

by 

book-cover

It was bound to happen eventually. The account of Noah’s Flood has now been subjected to John Walton’s interpretive method, which was previously set forth in other books from his influential ‘Lost World’ series. This latest installment by Walton, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College and Graduate School, was co-authored with Tremper Longman III, Distinguished Scholar of Biblical Studies at Westmont College.

Ironically, Longman and Walton are the ones imposing a modern secular/sacred dichotomy on the text.

In the same way that Walton previously insisted that Genesis tells us nothing about the material origins of the universe or the biological origins of humanity,1,2 Longman and Walton now claim that, although the Flood was a historical event, the biblical text does not provide a description of the actual event. Instead, Scripture only tells us about the Flood’s theological meaning using figurative language.

Longman and Walton maintain that the Flood is depicted literarily as a global event, but this is intentionally hyperbolic language employed only to highlight the Flood’s great significance. As a historical event, they say, the Flood cannot have been global, because this is precluded by the geologic record.

But, as will be shown, this revisionist understanding of Noah’s Flood is ultimately unfaithful to the inspired text. The Bible does not merely depict the Flood as hyperbolically global, but historically global.

Tangential topics

Longman and Walton address a variety of other subjects associated with the Flood as well, such as Cain and Abel, the Genesis genealogies, the Nephilim, Babel, geological evidence, and widespread cultural flood legends. For sake of space, this review will focus on their primary case for a hyperbolic Flood, and leave these supplemental concerns to be addressed by others.3

Useful concessions

Though Longman’s and Walton’s understanding of the Flood account is generally at odds with the church’s historic view of the Flood as a real, global, catastrophic disaster, it does align at various points. This is helpful to creationists, because we can allow our critics to make our case for us! For example, Longman and Walton say that the toledot structure of Genesis shows that it was intended to record a “sequence of past events” (p. 17). Likewise, the authors insist that the Genesis Flood story was not borrowed from Babylonian myth (p. 80).

Regarding the extent of the Flood, they affirm many arguments creationists have long used to show that the text describes a global Flood. Longman and Walton think that the narrative as a whole is hyperbolic, but they argue strongly that the Flood is depicted as worldwide, not local. They insist that the following points prove the worldwide nature of the Flood (pp. 45–49):

  • All of humanity was destroyed, which could not be accomplished by a regional flood.
  • Noah needed to take animals, including birds, on board.
  • God told Noah to build an enormous Ark rather than instruct him to move.
  • The sources for the water (all the springs of the great deep, floodgates of the heavens) indicate universality.
  • The water was deep enough to cover the mountains (including the region of Ararat) by 15 cubits.

Furthermore, Longman and Walton offer multiple reasons why, according to the account’s portrayal, the Flood must have killed all of humanity except for the Ark’s eight passengers:

  • Human sin was universal (pp. 45, 48).
  • The Flood was the solution to God’s regret over creating mankind (pp. 45, 48).
  • The judgment was a reversal of creation—a ‘do-over’ (pp. 46, 48–49).
  • The text describes a worldwide Flood, which would leave no survivors (p. 45).
  • The text uses “universalistic rhetoric” to portray all people and animals as destroyed by the Flood (p. 70).4

Bait-and-switch propositions

Unfortunately, many of the book’s 17 chapter titles, called “propositions”, are misleading. What is argued in the text of the chapter often goes well beyond the stated thesis. For example, here is Proposition 1: “Genesis is an Ancient Document”. How banal. Who disagrees? But this chapter actually discusses the Bible as a whole, not just Genesis.

Also, it leaps from the reasonable claim that we must understand the Bible according to its historical context to assert these non sequiturs: (1) the Bible does not intend to teach any science, (2) its authority does not extend to science, and (3) it contains scientific falsehoods.

Thus, a more accurate title for this chapter would have been: “The Bible’s divine authority does not ensure that it accurately describes the world”. But methinks that would have given away the game.

Proposition 2 is: “Genesis 1–11 Makes Claims About Real Events in a Real Past.” Again, no disagreement there. But a more accurate title would have been: “Genesis 1–11 makes reference to real events, but it emphasizes their spiritual meaning over historically correct descriptions.”

Proposition 3 is: “Genesis 1–11 Uses Rhetorical Devices.” What they meant was: “The figurative language in Genesis 1–11 is so pervasive that it prevents us from reconstructing any past events mentioned therein.”

Limiting biblical authority

Despite Davis Young’s blurb on p. ii, which praises the authors for their “evangelical high view of Scripture”, Longman and Walton don’t have one. Sure, they profess to believe in inerrancy, and they rightly say that inerrancy applies to all that the Bible “intends to teach” (p. 167). But, for them, these are weasel words, because these authors severely constrict what they’ll allow the Bible to intend to teach. They say the Bible’s “affirmations are not of a scientific nature” (pp. 10–11).

Ironically, Longman and Walton are the ones imposing a modern secular/sacred dichotomy on the text, so that even though the Bible is replete with factual descriptions of nature and historical events, only the ‘spiritual meaning’ carries the authority. In the author’s minds, then, the Bible can wrongly say that the earth is flat (p. 153), that the sky is solid (p. 11), and that our hearts help us to think (p. 9), yet somehow without affirming such things.

However, this is not the way Jesus and the New Testament authors viewed Scripture, as demonstrated by the fact that they treated historical and scientific details in Old Testament narratives as reliable revelation.5

Longman and Walton also approvingly cite the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, when it suits them, to rightly defend the Bible’s use of hyperbole (pp. 34–35). But, they seem to have skipped Article XII, which says:

“WE DENY that Biblical infallibility and inerrancy are limited to spiritual, religious, or redemptive themes, exclusive of assertions in the fields of history and science. We further deny that scientific hypotheses about earth history may properly be used to overturn the teaching of Scripture on creation and the flood [emphasis added].”6

A statement made repeatedly throughout the book, so often that it becomes a mantra, is, “The events are not inspired but rather their presentation and interpretation in the biblical text are” (p. 92, cf. 12, 18, 93, 95, 177). One wonders who Longman and Walton are attempting to argue against here. Creationists do not say that the Flood event itself is the object of inspiration. This would be a category error. God breathes out authoritative words (2 Timothy 3:16), but events are not words.

Nevertheless, when Longman and Walton apply this notion to the Flood account, they say, “There was a real, cataclysmic event, but the Bible does not describe that event authoritatively”, while it “does interpret that event authoritatively [emphasis in original]” (p. 11). So, then, they see the description given in the text as some combination of two possibilities.

First, it may be that the description of the Flood is factually wrong, though not authoritative (fitting in their category of ‘culturally conditioned’). Second, it may be that the description of the Flood is not intended as a literal description (fitting in their category of ‘rhetorically shaped’).

However, the driving assumption behind these false alternatives is that Scripture cannot authoritatively communicate anything that may be subjected to scientific analysis. But what if God wanted to? He doesn’t have to reveal the quadratic equation in order to say something that would qualify as science.

He could simply state that water once covered the mountains by 15 cubits, which is exactly what He did.

Hyperbole hypothesis is a stretch

rainbow

Figure 1
. God’s covenant to never flood the world again was made not only with Noah, but “all future generations” (Genesis 9:12). This implies that the worldwide Flood occurred in the real past and was not merely a literary device.

Though Longman and Walton maintain that “Only the most gullible” would deny the hyperbolic nature of the Flood (p. 39), let me risk their contempt. I do not deny that there are some hyperbolic elements in the Flood narrative, like their example from Genesis 6:5, which describes the wickedness of mankind by saying that “every intention of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (p. 38).

As Longman and Walton point out, surely not every motive for every thought was wicked, including those of righteous Noah (Genesis 6:9). Still, the claim that the extent of the Flood was exaggerated for effect is utterly unconvincing.

Poor parallels

One problem is that the authors’ examples of hyperbole are disanalogous to the Flood account. On p. 49, they say the language in the Flood narrative is like describing the Holocaust as the “total annihilation of European Jewry”. But, as is typical with hyperbole, this is a simple exaggeration of size/scope within a single, short statement. The Flood, by contrast, is a complex narrative carried through several chapters, with multiple, varied indications that the event was actually worldwide and wiped out all of humanity.

Or, take the authors’ example of the Israelite conquest in Joshua 1–12. In several summary statements in Joshua 10 and 11, it says that “Joshua took the entire land” and “left no survivors”. But in Joshua 13 and Judges 1, much territory still remained to be conquered. Longman and Walton say:

“The author is intentionally using universalistic language and intends to convey, rhetorically, that the conquest was complete, but that did not correspond to the actual geographical scope of the conquest, only to the significance of the conquest” (p. 32).

I grant that some of the phrasings are hyperbolic because the author of Joshua is focusing on the victories, but that is not to say that the specifics of the account are ahistorical. The text describes in accurate detail which areas were conquered and which kings were defeated. So, what we have here are islands of hyperbole in a larger non-hyperbolic narrative.

But note that this is not what Longman and Walton are claiming about the Flood account. They say that the real (local) flood event is so obscured by the hyperbole that “we cannot reconstruct the event” (p. 146). They say that all of the elaborate detail in the Flood narrative is not meant as a historical description. It’s all just part of the rhetorical shaping of the story. Really?

Let’s consider some of these details. Longman and Walton dismissively say that many of the specifics in the Flood account, like the duration of the Flood and the precise size of the Ark, “are incidental and don’t matter” (p. 63). But how do they know this? Dismissing the details is a convenient way of not having to account for their presence. But it makes far more sense if the following were recorded due to the fact that they are historical realities.

  • The Ark was 300 × 50 × 30 cubits, was made of gopher wood, had 3 decks, one door, a roof, a window, and was covered inside and out with pitch.7
  • Animals went on in pairs (unclean) and sevens (clean).
  • The mountains were covered by 15 cubits.
  • The Ark landed specifically in the region of Ararat, which Longman and Walton acknowledge is a location uniquely given in the biblical account (p. 80).
  • An elaborate chronology for the Flood year is given with precision down to particular days in specific months in a specific year of Noah’s life.
  • Noah released particular birds in a particular order.

If these kinds of details do not correspond to reality and serve no particular purpose, the account is filled with extraneous twaddle. Longman and Walton say you can tell that a passage is figurative when you “have to work hard to take it any other way” (p. 25) but, here, they are the ones having to dance around the plain sense of the text.

Truncated Noahic covenant

Another problem for Longman and Walton is that God’s dealings with Noah after the Flood indicate that it was worldwide. The authors do offer an interpretation of the Noahic covenant, which is true as far as it goes. They say it highlights God’s continued grace toward sinful creatures (p. 103). It represents God’s commitment “to the continuance of the world and its inhabitants” (p. 104). It indicates “a re-establishment of” and “greater permanence to the cosmos’s order” (p. 120). Okay. Fine. Good. But there’s more.

God’s promise was not merely that He would now preserve the world, it was that He would not repeat such a Flood (figure 1). He said, “never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:11; cf. 8:219:15Isaiah 54:9). But what was God promising not to repeat in Longman and Walton’s view?

Although they don’t say, I suspect they would agree that God was promising not to send another worldwide Flood. But this means, in their view, that even this promise must be part of the hyperbole. In other words, it’s not part of the inspired meaning we can derive from the account; it’s just part of the furniture of the literary device meant to emphasize God’s gracious commitment to preserve the world.

On the contrary, the text explicitly says that God was making this covenant not only with the characters in the narrative—Noah, his family, and the animals—but also with their future “offspring” (Genesis 9:9) and “for all future generations” (Genesis 9:12). God promised us that He would never flood the entire world again, which means He once did so in real history.

The claim that the extent of the Flood was exaggerated for effect is utterly unconvincing.

Survivors outside the Ark?

As mentioned earlier, Longman and Walton admit that the Flood narrative describes the reduction of the world’s population down to eight. But they do not believe this really happened in history. They say it is only “one reading of the story” which understands Noah and sons “to be the ancestors of everyone who is alive today” (p. 162).

Plus, given their acceptance of the conventional millions-of-years age of the earth, “there was no time when all humans were concentrated in a specific area so that even an extensive, regional flood could wipe them all out” (p. 46). Therefore, in their view, many others besides those on the Ark survived the actual, historical flood.

But this is contrary to the text. The Bible emphasizes in a variety of ways that only Noah and his family remained after the Flood. These simply cannot all be chalked up to the aggrandizing of the Flood’s significance.

For example, Noah and sons were commanded to “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth” (Genesis 9:1; cf. 9:7)—the same command God gave to Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:28) because Noah was likewise beginning from scratch. Also, Noah’s sons gave rise to the “nations” (goyim), which spread around the “whole earth” following the Flood (Genesis 9:1910:32).

Finally, the New Testament treats it as a given that God “did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah … with seven others” (2 Peter 2:5; cf. 1 Peter 3:20). So, the notion that the Flood destroyed everyone extends well beyond the immediate context of the Flood account. It is treated as a factual, historical truth in all that follows.

Peter’s perspective

Longman and Walton say that the New Testament references to the Flood treat it as merely “an illustration of the truth that our God is a God who judges sin” (p. 98). Supposedly, they are not making any claims about the historical extent of the Flood. But this is dubious, especially when it comes to the Apostle Peter’s second epistle. In chapter 2, Peter discusses a chronological series of God’s judgments: the pre-Flood angels, the Flood, and Sodom and Gomorrah (2 Peter 2:4–8).

Here, Peter treats the Flood as an event of history, just like these others. All three serve as examples for people today precisely because God really did execute these judgments in history. So, when Peter says that God “did not spare the ancient world” (2 Peter 2:5), he is not implicitly thinking, “as the story goes”. He means to say that God actually destroyed the ancient world.

But was he thinking of the ‘world’ in a restricted sense—referring to only part of the earth? No. In the very next chapter, Peter brings up the Flood again. There, he sets up a contrast between the pre-Flood “world that then existed” which was destroyed by water, and “the heavens and earth that now exist” which will be judged by fire (2 Peter 3:6–7).

Clearly, the present heavens and earth is universal. But then the comparison indicates that the extent of the pre-Flood world, which “was deluged with water and perished”, is also universal. Peter plainly thought the Flood engulfed the entire world, not just a part of it. Sadly, however, Longman and Walton never even mention this passage, let alone offer a response.

Conclusion

Walton’s ‘Lost World’ books offer such a radical rethink of the biblical text that one wonders how the church could have gotten it so wrong for so long. But, when the arguments are evaluated and considered in light of Scripture, it turns out it is not the church that is wrong.

Longman and Walton may be clever scholars who offer some helpful insights but, in the end, their reinterpretation of Noah’s Flood doesn’t hold water.

  4. Confusingly, Longman and Walton seem to contradict themselves when they say the biblical text is “vague about human survivors” (p. 71). I take them to mean that the text is vague about the reality, though clear in the hyperbolic presentation that none survived. Return to text.
