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. (Genesis 6:5)
…‘But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (Matthew 24:37-39)
A person could ask what it was like in the days of Noah and all he would have to do is look around and see the same things are going on in the world today. Just look around and see for yourself. Wickedness is everywhere! Any true follower of Jesus Christ can truly see we are living in the time which our Lord talked and prophesied about. A time when the world would be in the same state as it was in the time of Noah. Soon the true followers Of Christ will be taken up out of this world and we will be saved from what is to come. Just as Noah found grace in the eyes of God so shall true believers find grace in the eyes of God.
The world for the most part has turned their backs on God and soon will reap the benefits of that decision. God will give everyone a chance to turn to Him with all their hearts, but if they choose to ignore the promptings of the Holy Spirit and the warnings found in God’s Word, then His spirit will be withdrawn and how true will the verse become that says … ‘He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.’ (Revelation 22:11) People need to know that once the door to God’s mercy is closed, they who are holy will remain holy, and they who are filthy will remain filthy. How a tree falls so shall it lay.
Today, we find the majority of people in the world choosing the ‘broad way’ that leads to destruction, because the way to eternal life is too narrow for them. They say that you don’t need to keep God’s Commandments. The president of the United States said in a speech we are no longer a Christian nation and also in the same speech said some of the Bible is not for today. That is the first mistake because God changes not and forever His word is settled in Heaven. What was good for America room her beginning suddenly is no longer wanted. God have mercy on the people in America and turn them from their sinful ways.
Some leaders will tell you that we can worship God any way we like. They say that it is ok to like the things of this world. They will tell you that we need to include people from different faiths. We have Christians and Muslims worshiping in the same church and say they are worshipping the same god. Not So ! They will tell you that it is ok for homosexuals to take part in and lead church worship. Abortion (murder) has run ramped with millions of unborn babies being killed in the mother’s womb every year. Government leaders and many preachers from behind the pulpit say many things that are clearly contrary to the Word of God. Why is this? It is because these people walk after the flesh rather than the Spirit. Most people in today’s world have closed their hearts to the pleading and guiding of the Holy Spirit and they are heading for destruction. The continual indulgence in sin that existed in Noah’s day exists today and even worse. Most people in the United States depend on their government to provide everything for them and some people even call the president “The messiah”. They have believed a lie and will be damned if there is no repentance. We need to look to God from whom our help comes from.
People who lived in Noah’s day disregarded the warnings from Noah and went on in their sinful lives as if nothing was going to happen. This is the same condition that we find in this world today. God’s true people (the followers of Jesus Christ) around the world are forewarning and telling the rest of this world that the Day of Judgment is coming, and that all people should turn to God, repent and obey God by keeping His commandments. The majority of people are ignoring the warning signs, just like in the days of Noah. Most people are too blinded by the pleasures of this world to be able to read the signs of the time and to take heed God’s warning.
Are the professing Christians in this world studying Bible prophecy? Are the ministers behind the pulpits teaching prophecy? The answer is for the most part is no. Very few Christians are interested in Bible prophecy, and very few are searching the scriptures daily to find out the truth. Many are deceived into thinking that God’s grace covers their living in sin. They will be in for a surprise.
Let us remember this, only 8 people were saved in the days of Noah, and Jesus said that only few will be saved in the end ……’Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.’
Oh I want to see Him, to look upon His face, There to live to live forever with the one who saved me by His grace!
