If you have ever wondered what Jesus meant by this saying, "But
as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man
be," then Floodgates is the book for you. David Parsons
gives a masterful explanation, with in-depth review of Scripture,
archeology and history. At the end of the book, you will have the
answers you need to know if we are now living in the days of the
coming of the Son of Man.

Things are getting desperate. Noah also lived in desperate times. Jesus said that the "end" times would mirror the days of Noah. I have always thought we should explore Jesus's words and Noah's world to understand what is happening now and what could happen next. I am so glad my friend David Parsons has written Floodgates to do just that. Get it. Read it! You will be amazed and blessed.

Floodgates is a must-read for everyone who wants to understand the times in which we live. David Parsons combines his deep knowledge and balanced approach to Scripture with unique historical insights. The connection he draws between Hitler's Nazism and Social Darwinism should be studied in every school and university today. This book is an excellent tool that will help keep the Church from repeating the mistakes of the past and prepare for the trials ahead.

In a season of violent, cataclysmic change, we desperately need a God-perspective to maintain our bearings. David Parsons provides just such a perspective in his new book Floodgates. His message is a welcome and necessary reminder of the choices before us. David has provided a timely message, rooted in Scripture and filled with hope for those who can receive.

Floodgates is a gripping, face-slapping, wake-up call for all to reevaluate our global mind-set and spiritual downgrade. With the aid of Scripture and prophetic writings, we are amazed to observe that human behavior has little changed or improved through the passage of time. Sadly, a selfish and pridefully sin-tolerant generation now teaches in our schools, floods our universities and governs many nations. The floodgates are open! This new book by David Parsons proves, through illustrations and biblical applications, that abandonment of God's holiness and divine plan brings destruction--whether it be an ancient worldwide Flood or a modern genetic modification program threatened by egocentric madmen. Floodgates gives solid, informed answers to existential questions, and feeds a delectable flow of Scripture and words of wisdom from the world's great minds. Read it and share!

Floodgates provides a timely, refreshing and welcome contribution to the end-times debate. With a redemptive theme throughout, sterling scholarship and a penetrating analysis of the days in which we live, David Parsons gives this current generation the tools to understand our times and be like the biblical Sons of Issachar who "knew what to do." With his legal background, he chronicles the moral slide of our age, yet his biblical perspective shows the way of escape. I highly recommend this excellent, easy-to-read and first in a series of books which Parsons is writing to recognize the prophetic signs of the times.

Convinced! Over a span of forty-two years, I have read differing views about the biblical "giants" of Genesis 6 and numerous other passages, but I have never read anything as well researched and convincing as the material put forth in this book by David Parsons. He delves into this puzzling antediluvian question and gives thoroughly biblical answers that are theologically sound and prophetically relevant. I read Floodgates in one sitting and then read it again. It is a must-read for every serious Bible student!

David Parsons is uniquely qualified to understand major historical trends in relation to the present-day unfolding of biblical prophecy. From Jerusalem, at the crossroads of the world's spiritual and political currents, he tracks the development of humanistic understanding in alignment with God's warnings of judgment. David writes with the ease of a gifted communicator. His book, Floodgates, is a wake-up call for those who are watching the signs of the times, and a ray of hope to those who are waiting for the Lord's redemption.

Seldom will you read an author who can communicate such a combination of insights as is found in Floodgates. David Parsons shows us why the story of Noah's Flood is becoming increasingly relevant to our generation and how it parallels our modern day. But, as usual, he also snaps into place many prophetic puzzle pieces about Israel, the Jewish people and the end of the age. Get ready for numerous "aha moments"!

David Parsons is an attorney, a Middle East specialist and a prolific writer who calls the nation of Israel home. His research into, and writing of, the story of Noah from the land of the Bible brings this saga to life in a new, exhilarating, adventurous and prophetic light. While this story is a historical narrative, it is also a narrative for contemporary times, revealing not only what happened in Noah's day but how it parallels today's world. In Luke 17:26-27, Jesus quotes the story of Noah, which really places this paradigm at its pinnacle. Floodgates is a pathway into the future and should be read by every believer who desires a close walk with Christ the King. It points us to a future filled with opportunity to make and leave a significant legacy of grace. I highly recommend this read.
