10 Concerning this very salvation a diligent inquiry and a careful search were made by the prophets who prophesied about the undeserved kindness meant for
11 They kept on investigating what particular season or what sort of [thing] the spirit in them was indicating concerning Christ when it was bearing witness beforehand about the sufferings for Christ and about the glories to follow these. (1 Peter 1 NWT)
11 examining, to what things or what season did point the in them spirit of Anointed, testifying before the for Anointed sufferings, and the after these things glorious; (1 Peter 1 ED)
So the prophets who prophesied about undeserved kindness through the Christ were looking look both at events and at their chronology, their season. We must likewise both look at the mechanics of our salvation and the timing of it.
18 Why, even Christ died once for all time concerning sins, a righteous [person] for unrighteous ones, that he might lead you to God, he being put to death in the flesh, but being made alive in the spirit.
[he was resurrected first as an angel]
19 In this [state] also he went his way and preached to the spirits in prison, [he could not preach to the spirits in prison unless he was an angel]
20 who had once been disobedient when the patience of God was waiting in Noah's days, while the ark was being constructed, in which a few people, that is, 8 souls, were saved through the water.
21 This which corresponds to that is also now saving you, namely, baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the request made to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ [not the resurrection of Jesus himself as an angel, but the angelic resurrection that he enabled by his ransom of Adam. For no one could be resurrected as an angel prior to the angelic ransom of the Christ for Adam on 33Sivan5]
22 He is at God's right hand, for he went his way to heaven; and angels and authorities and powers were made subject to him. (1 Peter 3 NWT - adapted from the Greek)
There will be 8 groups of people saved in the greater ark, because Peter said that the ark saved the 8 souls physically through water.
Noah = Jesus
Mrs Noah = the 1NC wife of Jesus
Shem = Jacob
Mrs Shem = the sons of the JAC, the covenant house of Jacob, the saints
Japheth = Gabriel/Methuselah
Mrs Japheth = the sons of the CRC, the covenant house of the CRC, the priests
Ham = Melchizedek
Mrs Ham = the sons of the FRC and the LRC. the covenant house of the Kingdom citizens
Peter says this which corresponds to that (to Noah's ark by which 8 souls were saved through water) is also now saving you. He then says baptism, not in water but in spirit.
20 who had once been disobedient when
the patience of God was waiting in Noah's days, while the ark was being
constructed, in which a few people, that is, 8 souls, were saved through the
water. (NWT - adapted)
20 to disobeying ones, when once the long-suffering of God waited in [the] days of Noah, an ark having been prepared, into which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water. (GLT)
20 to (ones) having disobeyed sometime when was receiving out from the of the God longness of spirit in days of Noah of (one) being constructed of ark in which few, this is eight souls, were saved through through water. (KIT)

21 That which corresponds to this is
also now saving you, namely, baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the
flesh, but the request made to God for a good conscience, through the
resurrection of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 3 NWT)
21 Which antitype now also saves us, baptism, not a putting away of [the] filth of [the] flesh, but [the] answer of a good conscience toward God through [the] resurrection of Jesus Christ; (1 Peter 3 GLT)
21 Which also you antitype now is saving baptism, not of flesh putting away of filth but of conscience good questioning upon into God, through resurrection of Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 3 KIT)
21 kai u?maj nun antitupon swzei baptisma ou sarkoj apoqesij rupou alla suneidhsewj agaqhj eperwthma eij qeon di anastasewj Ihsou Cristou (1 Peter 3 SCSa)
21 o kai umaj antitupon nun swzei baptisma ou sarkoj apoqesij rupou alla suneidhsewj agaqhj eperwthma eij qeon di anastasewj ihsou cristou (1 Peter 3 Alex)
21 o kai umaj antitupon nun swzei baptisma ou sarkoj apoqesij rupou alla suneidhsewj agaqhj eperwthma eij qeon di anastasewj ihsou cristou (1 Peter 3 VatB)
The phrase 'which antitype' is of course ambiguous. It could refer to the atnitype of the water, or of the ark. Peter then say not the putting away of the filth of the flehs, i.e. not the water baptism, but the request made to God for a clean conscience through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the spirit baptism which gives an angel only after the angelic resurrection and angelic ransom of Jesus for Adam. So it is the spirit baptism that corresponds to the ark.
So for 1NC saints the greater ark was their angel Putting this more clearly: Peter says that spirit baptism through the resurrection of the Christ corresponds to Noah's ark and its salvation through water. But a spirit baptism is a salvation that saves you through water, through a water baptism into the ICC, which it requires (since all sons of Jacob, through the JAC, must also be sons of Isaac, through the ICC). But having an angelic soul means that upon expiration you go into an ark in order to climb the 30 steps of Jacob's ladder and enter into heaven. So Peter is revealing that all saints enter into an ark with their spirit begotten angelic souls.
Peter is declaring the sacred secret that there is a greater ark for all those resurrected angelically.
But for unsanctified mankind at the end of the world, the greater ark is a greater ark. And the greater water is the non adamic ICC or 1AC baptism of Zoar and of Laodicea.
But 8 souls were carried through the water by the ark, not merely one angelic soul. So whether you are a saint or an unsanctified son of the CRC or the FRC during the 3rd presence, you are baptised, you are then born again (either non adamically or angelically), then you go into an ark. That is your salvation process.
Furthermore this greater ark was constructed as was the first ark. The greater ark was constructed not in Noah's days, his 120 year warning ministry, but in Jesus' days, i.e. during his 3½ year ministry, ready for him and then all the Christian saints to ascend into upon resurrection.
