The Days of Noah is Flawed

I started to watch something on Amazon titled, The Days of Noah, and it seemed interesting and more or less on point from what I recall. Remember, it’s been a time since I have read the Bible. In the first episode, I was wondering about some of the detail they added to the Biblical account, but dismissed it. Perhaps it was something I missed. But I have read Genesis more than once. 

Then I got to the second part, which was regarding Judgement and as soon as they started talking about 1844, my radar went off (that is to say the Holy Spirit urged me to check this out). 

I have never heard reference to 1844 and how does man know what Jesus was doing in 1844. They were talking about the Heavenly Sanctuary and all this was alien to me, so I did a basic Google search on 1844 and the Judgement and found it to be a Seventh Day Adventist ideology and promptly stopped watching.

Just as we know not the hour, nor the day that Jesus returns (Mark 13:32), sure we can see some signs, because it is written in the Bible that as in the Days of Noah, so it will be when Jesus returns, but no date is given.

See Matthew Chapter 24. Verses 37-39.

37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.


38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,


39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Luke Chapter 17, verse 26: 

And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of Man.

There is absolutely NOTHING in the Bible that refers to 1844.  This date comes from William Miller, an American Baptist from the 1800s whose thorough research of the Bible which was convincing enough it helped shape the foundation of the Seventh Day Adventist church. This is also the cult that determines only 144,000 will get to Heaven.  At one point, they thought Jesus was returning on 22nd October 1844 and that became the Great Disappointment.  See this entry for charts and further detail Great Disappointment

Cults often embellish, or omit (or both) sections from the Bible to suit their agenda, or vision. Seventh Day Adventist are very eager to discuss Judgement and the End of Days. This is not intended as a slight against individuals in the Mormon church. I have family members who belong or have belonged to it and know them to be good people, but the followers are sadly deceived. Taking away or adding to the Holy Scripture comes with a severe punishment. (See Revelation Chapter 22 Verses 18-19)

Note to self and others: Be cautious about  secondary or tertiary insights. Examine them against Scripture and look into the origins if they are not Biblical.
