Noah's Ark

[part-talkie]

1   
 And the Lord said..
I will not again curse
the ground any more for
man's sake ... neither will
I again smite anymore
everything living, as I
have done.

		Gen. Chap. 8

2
  I do now set my bow
in the cloud, and it shall
be for a token of a
covenant between me and 
the earth.

		Gen. Chap. 8

3
But the men continued to
remain wicked in their hearts.
And they said...Let us build
a city and a tower whose top
may reach unto Heaven..
and make us strong against 
God's vengeance...

		Gen. Chap. 11.

4
Gold became man's
  only god, and money
his only king, in a world
gone mad at the feet of
the .. Golden Calf.

5
And throughout the 
  ages, the worship of
the Golden Calf remains
man's religion.

6
Towers of Babel
 multiply throughout
 the world...


7
And brother wars
  with brother ...

8
"You swindler - - you've
ruined me and my family!
I've lost everything I own!"

9
"I can't help it! You don't
think we're running this
market just for your 
benefit - do you?"

10
Silenced was the voice 
 of Him who had said
to the troubled waters,
"Peace...be still;" while
the world rushed onwards 
towards destruction.

11
In 1914, near the
borders of France--
The Oriental Express,
speeding from Paris
to Constantinople.

12
On this night, ancient 
and forgotten prejudices
found voice --- all
languages spoke of
the impending WAR!

13
"- - run along, old man.
Read your Bible some-
where else."

14
"That's what we call the 
bums-rush, in my
country."

15
"When he misses them, 
I get 'em."

16
A small theatrical 
troupe on their way 
to Bucharest.

17
"Don't let this war-talk
frighten you - war will
help our business.
People want to laugh 
before they die."

18
"You are German, are 
you not?"

19
"A pretty girl like you
should be riding in a
private compartment."

20
"The Lord hath said,
'measure not thy wrath
against thy child.'"

21
"The Lord never had an 
obstinate brat like this!"

22
"No wonder hate rules the 
world, when mothers strike 
their little ones in anger."

23
"Children are like men.
You must whip them 
into obedience."

24
"The Bible won't work 
nowadays - science is 
God!"

25
"There is no God, gentlemen,
there is only a Goddess.
Her name is woman - and
she's a Devil!"

26
"Military might is the 
only God!"

27
"Only with the eye of Faith
can we see God's eternal
plan."

28
"Faith is food for fools and 
invalids. If there is a God
why doesn't he show 
himself?"

29
"Peace, brother, lest
He show Himself -
in wrath!"

30
"Help us, brother."

31
"We're near the French 
frontier. You'll find 
shelter at the lodge up 
there--"

32
"The train was wrecked -
we brought you here."

33
"Sure - me an' him are 
pals."

34
"Spooks!"

35
"We were in a wreck - we
want rooms for the night."

36
"If you'll show me the way 
to your cellar, I'll buy you 
a drink."

37
"The little girl is 
quite popular tonight."

38
"Your friend is fighting -
he needs help."

39
"If my pal is fighting, it's
the other guy that needs 
help."

40
"Attention, everyone! Show
your identifications. War
has been declared!"

41
"I am an officer of the 
Russian Secret Service.
Quick - - the girl up-
stairs is a German!"

42
"Don't worry, little baby,
I'll be back some day."

43
Not yet had Paris
flung all her young
manhood into the 
maw of War -- not yet.

44
Travis had stayed in
Paris because of Marie--
and Al had stayed 
because of Travis.

45
When the war-weary
spirit of France had
begun to droop, fresh
blood came from
across the seas.

46
"Look - quick! - There's
Al!"

47
"Every boy in that line 
makes me feel ashamed 
of myself - -"

48
"They're my people, Marie --
don't you understand?
I'm a traitor not to go!"

49
"You can't leave me --
you're my husband --
you belong to me!"

50
"I love you -- I'll always
love you - but I've got
to go!"

51
"Where to?"

52
"Who knows or cares."

53
After Chateau Thierry,
 came the quiet before
 the Argonne Drive.

54
"Must be great to be 
a dog! Yuh don't have
to go to war an' yuh
don't have to obey 
orders!"

55
"I could lick the guy that
said there was a yellow
streak in you!"

56
"Marie and I were married
a week after you left."

57
"I've tried to find her - I've
written a dozen letters -
but never received an
answer."

58
"If I get bumped off, there's
a girl that's gonna cry
about me, too."

59
"Some days those beer-
hounds are gonna get 
me mad."

60
"That nest is holding up 
our advance. You take a
squad and attack from
the right."

61
"- and you grab a squad 
and attack from the left."

62
"- And listen, you eggs -
be hard-boiled!"

63
"So long, old boy -- see
you - in Berlin."

64
"So long, old boy -- see
you - in heaven!"

65
Months later, near
the Berlin front --
an interval in the
grim routine of war --

66
After the downfall
of the Czar -- Nickoloff
had been retained by
the Allied Intelligence
Department.

67
"I gave you a chance and
you threw it away.
Now you'll find out what 
happens to - a spy!"

68
"I'm not a spy, and you
know it - !"

69
"This girl is a German,
posing as a French
subject - - hold her for
investigation!"

70
Condemned.

71
"The Lord hath said,
'measure not thy wrath
against thy child.'"

72
"It's Marie - Marie -
my wife!"

73
"Don't you understand,
boys? She's my wife -
my Marie! She can't
be a spy!"

74
"Headquarters has given
you your orders. Proceed!"

75
"Oh, God! Have mercy on
thy children! They know
not what they do!"

76
"We are buried alive - we
must pray and make 
our peace with God."

77
"As the Ark prevailed upon
the flood waters, Oh, God,
so let Thy righteousness
prevail in this Deluge of
Blood!"

78
"The Flood - - it was a
Deluge of Water drown-
ing a World of Lust!"

79
"This War - it is a Deluge
of Blood drowning a World
of Hate!"

80
"The Flood and the War -
God Almighty's Parallel of
the Ages."

81
 5 And God saw that the
wickedness of man was great
in the earth, and that every
imagination of the thoughts
of his heart was only evil
continually.

82
The Feast of Gold in
  the City of Akkad,
in the land of Ur of the
Chaldees, when the mighty
King drew tribute from
many lands.

83
But King Nephilim
 had led his people
from Jehovah, to worship
the false god Jaghuth.

84
"Rich have been the harvests
of field and hill. Wherefore,
shall we not pay tribute to
the mightiest of our gods,
Jaghuth?"

85
"When the next cycle moon
rises from out the Syrian 
hills, we shall sacrifice to
Jaghuth the fairest virgin 
of our people."

86
From the fertile valley 
 of the Tigris and the
rock hills of Shinar..
from the mountains of
Lebanon to the sands of
the Great Desert, they
came, paying tribute.

87
Nor were the gods
  of war forgotten,
who delighted in
victims tortured.

88
Maidens who rebelled
 against Jaghuth's
laws, were branded
with the mark of
slavery.

89
Those that dwelt
  in poverty were
gorged that day by
the King's bounty.

90
And in all the earth
  but one altar
was raised to Jehovah,
for Noah walked and
talked with God.

91
Noah had three sons;
 Japheth, Ham and
Shem, mighty men and
blessed of God.

92
"Help us, brother."

93
The handmaid of
Noah's household
was Miriam .. beloved
of Japheth.

94
Drunken with the King's
  wine, his soldiers
had forgotten the purpose
of their quest ... a virgin
fit for sacrifice.

95
"Behold the maid who
shall be Jaghuth's
bride a moon hence."

96
"It is my command that thou
shalt be sacrificed to the
mighty god Jaghuth!"

97
In the household of Noah
 there was weeping and
lamentation, but Japheth
did not weep...

98
"Do this deed of evil, oh
Nephilim, and neither thy
buckler nor shield will
save thee, nor thy hosts of
bearded archers!"

99
"Drag him to the stone-mill,
where those that blaspheme
our mighty god are punished!"

100
The golgotha of Akkad.
  Stone on stone, crushing
mountains of stone...
and the souls of those
that had blasphemed.

101
"It is the king's command 
that thou shalt be blinded
and tramp this treadmill
until death."

102
The voice of God had
 whispered unto Noah:
"Fear not for thy handmaid,
nor for thy son. On
Tersgah's heights will I
give thee a sign..."

103
   AND BEHOLD,
  I, EVEN I, DO
  BRING A FLOOD
OF WATER UPON THE
EARTH TO DESTROY
   ALL FLESH

104
MAKE THEE AN ARK 
OF GOPHER WOOD AND
THOU SHALT COME INTO
THE ARK, THOU AND
THY SONS AND THY
WIFE, AND THY SONS'
WIVES WITH THEE

105
 AND OF EVERY
 LIVING THING
 OF ALL FLESH
 TWO OF EVERY 
SORT SHALT THOU
  BRING INTO 
   THE ARK

106
"Thy will be done, on earth
as it is in Heaven."

107
As God had commanded 
 Noah, thus did he,
even as God commanded.

108
"Many times has the Sabbath
come and gone, yet God sends
not back to us our brother
and his betrothed - -"

109
"Jehovah will not mock us.
Trust thou in God and 
fear not."

110
Word had gone forth
  of Noah's folly..
the Ark and the
promised deluge.

111
"Shave the corners of thy
beard, old man, to make
nets to catch fish on the 
mountainside!"

112
"We come with the blessing 
of King Nephilim to destroy 
thy Ark - and thee!"

113
The crescent moon,
  from out the Syrian
hills, had flung aloft its
livid signal. The day
of sacrifice had come.

114
"It is my command that the 
sacrifice shall now begin!"

115
From the four corners
  of the earth mighty
tempests rose. God's wrath
 rode upon the winds.

116
"Repent of your sins, oh
people! Jehovah may yet
withhold His wrath!"

117
"Heed not the bearded fool!
Our god Jaghuth speaks in
this tempest - not Jehovah."

118
"Cast him to the dogs,
lest he invoke Jaghuth
to greater violence!"

119
"Release the soul of the 
virgin, oh my archers -
pierce her heart with 
your arrows!"

120
"Why are my arrows
unsped? Jaghuth grows
mighty in his rage!"

121
"Hear me, oh thou mighty
Jaghuth! Bring confusion
to thine enemies!"

122
"Hold back the winds - -
shatter with thy thunderbolts
the insolent Jehovah!"

123
"Now is the wrath of a
just God smiting thee, oh
Akkad!"

124
To the Ark they came..
  the Animal Kingdom..
from the mountains and
plains, from the rain-swept
desert and the darkened
sky, obedient to God's
command.

125
The fleeing multitudes
 climbed the mountainsides,
seeking the shelter of the
Ark -- the Ark that they 
had once called "Noah's Folly".

126
And then indeed were
  the fountains of the
great deep loosened, and
the clouds poured back
again the sundering floods.

127
"The Lord God Almighty
reigneth, and Thy name
shall be called Wonderful!"

128
"Oh Lord, to whom darkness
is as light, direct these sightless 
eyes of mine to Miriam."

129
God walked 
 with Japheth..

130
"Call again on your great 
god Jaghuth - perhaps he
sleepeth!"

131
"Japheth! Japheth!"

132
"That was the end of a 
world of lust and sin - -
God made His covenant
and the rainbow appeared
in the heavens."

133
"Above this deluge of blood,
and the graves of ten
million men, shall not the
rainbow of a new covenant 
appear - the covenant of
peace?"

134
"The Armistice - - the
Armistice is signed! The
war is over!"

135
"Don't you understand? It
is the beginning of the 
rainbow -- the fulfilment
of the sacrifice."

136
"You mean - there will be 
no more war?"

137
"I mean that war is now 
an outlaw, and will be
hunted from the face of
the earth. Those ten 
million men have not died 
in vain."
