Genesis 7 repeats the account of the flood twice. It was describing the flood in two different ways, but both ways are heading towards the same direction. The worldwide flood is compared to the worldwide disaster that will be coming, including the sixth seal—a worldwide earth quake, and the Great Tribulation at the time of the Rapture when the world will experience tribulation everywhere; not one soul will be left untouched. See, there is often a threefold pattern throughout the bible. These are the remaining 2 Paul’s Shipwrecks to add up to the first worldwide flood.

And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

There went in two and two unto Noah into the ark, the male and the female, as God had commanded Noah.
