Genesis 7:11 deep and wide

Genesis 7:11 “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.”
Make note of the timeline marked out here it will be useful later. We have encountered the term “the great deep” before. Back in Genesis 1, we are told that darkness, SPIRITUAL DARKNESS, hovered over the great deep.
Could it be that this great deep, being emptied of its water in order to judge the world with a Flood, was also being readied to judge Satan? For in Revelation, we are told that at the end of the Tribulation Satan is going to be thrown into the Abyss, the “abbussos”, the same word used for “great deep”.
Could the source of the floodwater, and the place where Satan will be chained up for 1000 years, be the same?
The “Abzu” in the Sumerian and Akkadian languages literally, ab=’water’ zu=’deep’, was the name for the primeval sea below the void space of the underworld.

In the city of Eridu [the location of the Tower of Babel], Enki’s temple was known as E2-abzu [house of the cosmic waters] and was located at the edge of a swamp. Enki is one of the many names given to Nimrod, the engineer of the tower and the resulting pagan religious systems all across the globe.

  1. Very interesting! Much of what is alluded to in the Bible is explained in greater detail in the books removed from it by men! My research revealed that the gods of the Babel Mysteries cult actually originated before the Flood. The cannicalistic hybrid-giants demanded food from the smaller humans. In order to appease them, humans were sacrificed. When the giants died, their spirits were doomed to roam the earth until the day of judgment. The Mysteries of heaven were recorded on stone and brick and rediscovered after the Flood. Thus, Nimrod began to become like the nephilim/giants. Maybe he was possessed? Or, did he actually transform into a giant? Regardless, it explains why he believed he and his cohorts had the power to ascend into heaven and dethrone the Almighty.


    1. Very true. In my study I looked at the words ” he began H2490 to be H1961 ”

      H2490 to begin (as if by an “opening wedge”)
      H1961 to come into being, i.e. to happen, to occur (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary)

      What struck me was the “opening as a wedge” and in the second term “not by copula(tion)”
