I have been thinking seriously about the last days and the return of Christ. Jesus said, "For it will be exactly like it was in the days of Noah when the Son of Man appears." Matthew 24:37 Peter wrote that Noah was a preacher of righteousness. It took Noah 100 years to build the ark so he must have preached (prophesied) during that period of time. As Noah completed the building of the ark God gave him instructions. One of these had to do with the storing of food. Genesis 6:21 "Bring every kind of food that may be eaten, and store it all inside the ark. That way, you and all of the creatures will have enough food to eat." Noah, Noah's family, and all the animals were in the ark for 377 days (a little longer than a year). God instructed Noah to "store" enough food to eat during a year of complete isolation. There was a year's supply of food stored in the Ark.
Tomorrow I will look at Joseph and seven years of food storage following the prophetic dream God gave to Pharaoh.
