Flood Justice?

What part of prophecies are repeated? If Noah’s Flood is a prophecy, does that mean that its fulfillment includes a worldwide flood? No. In fact, “I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.” Genesis 9:11

But even though there will not be a worldwide flood again, other parts of the story may repeat. Will there be another ‘flood’ which will destroy evil people in preparation for repopulating the earth? That may be. At least partially. Are we living in a time when evil people will be destroyed and their influence limited? Quite possibly. Could there be a flood to start the seventh 1,000 year ‘day’ within God’s 7,000 year ‘day’ of rest? “The Lord sits enthroned over the flood; the Lord is enthroned as King forever.” Psalm 29:10

Is this suggesting that when Jesus is enthroned, he will preside over a flood? “To me this is like the days of Noah,
    when I swore that the waters of Noah would never again cover the earth.
So now I have sworn not to be angry with you,
    never to rebuke you again.
Though the mountains be shaken
    and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
    nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
    says the Lord, who has compassion on you .” Isaiah 54:9-10

This is a beautiful chapter about the bride of Christ (chapter 54), which follows the chapter on the Messiah (chapter 52:13-53). The waters of the flood increased upon the earth for 150 days (Genesis 7:24). This was to kill every living thing. Are we living in a time when serious justice will be meted out to severely limit Satan’s reach and power? It may be. We will have to see!
