THE PRE-FLOOD CIVILIZATION
THE COMING GOLDEN AGE IS NOT A UTOPIA
“For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”
Alternately surfing and stumbling across the Internet brings one to a dizzying number of websites.
These websites are an amazingly diverse cross section of what people across the world believe and are interested in–particularly, people from the English-speaking countries.
When one comes across a website of a particular flavor, it’s not hard to branch out from there, exploring links from that website to other like-minded sites which have banded together into (sometimes) far-flung networks.
It’s useful, from time-to-time, to go on these cyber journeys–if only to remind oneself of the sheer numbers of people who think and believe differently.
And so it was this past week: a number of websites were explored which served to remind this writer that many are NOT looking for a return of Jesus Christ.
Many are not looking for a return of Jesus Christ, but of another man who, Jesus declared would “come in his own name.”
“I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.”
This man, this supreme leader, this future ruler of the world: some call him The One; some call him The All; some call him the Christ; those in the counterfeit, apostate churches, which will soon enough worship him, call him the Antichrist.
The Bible calls him the man of sin.
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;”

THE MAN OF SIN
The Bible records the man of sin will rise from within the apostate churches and declare to the world that he is God.
“Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
And because the world is wicked, the world believes the man of sin IS God.
“And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast…And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”
Yes, the whole world will worship the man of sin and his worldwide empire, which will be composed of all nations, all kindreds, all tongues, across the earth.
Knowing all this (and knowing that the Bible is the Word of God and is true) and knowing the times in which we live, it is not surprising that many now are watching for the man of sin.
In fact, IF one believes in the complete, 100 percent accuracy of the Bible, then one would have to be disappointed to find otherwise.
One additional thing which was noticed during these journeys across the Internet: among those deceived individuals who work for the man of sin, there is a great desire to see a return to the pre-flood world.
These benighted folk have been deceived into believing the civilization which existed before the flood was a Utopia; a “heaven on earth”; the Golden Age of Man.
And in a way, it WAS the Golden Age of Man…
…IF one believes unrepentant man, without a Savior, is a wicked, lost creature.
“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. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”
“The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.”
This is the world which the armies toiling for the man of sin imagine to be paradise.
Because most of these worker bees are aware that man was not a simple cave-dweller before the flood, but part of a highly-advanced civilization (in many respects more advanced than today), they long for an unleashing of technology long held back from the public.
Because most of these faceless laborers are aware that demonic power was both worshiped and harnessed to do great feats, they yearn for a time when similar signs and lying wonders are displayed.
“And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do”
And because, first of all, they are deceived, they believe this coming time of rebellion against God (just as the earlier rebellion before the flood) will yield a time of peace and love and brotherhood–IF one belongs to the right groups, says the right things and swears the right allegiances.
The Bible declares this coming Second Golden Age of Man to be a time of immense slaughter–and that’s before the world is judged at the return of Jesus Christ. First, a fourth part of mankind dies.
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.”
Later, another THIRD perish of those who remain after the death of nearly two billion.
“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.”
Altogether, HALF of the people on earth die–and this is not counting the numbers who die in the various judgments poured out on wicked men.
This is the Golden Age for which many yearn.
“Oh well, you can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.”
The coming rebellion against God will see success for forty-two months.
THIS is the culmination of the generations of the wicked who have labored in darkness: this forty-two month season of sorrow and worldly power. In fact, their season of world power will be shorter than forty-two months because God cuts it short.
“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.”
These workers of iniquity represent a great cross section: some are pagans; some are satanists; some are witches; some use divination; some are embedded in the churches and worship other spirits; some are in secret societies, some are involved in various stages of magic: many are involved in more than one of these activities.
MOST are in pursuit of illegitimate supernatural power.
Along the way, it is certain the saints will be persecuted: some will even choose to forfeit their lives for the witness of Jesus Christ, ensuring their eternal glory.
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
But this Golden Age of Man crumbles, falls and is utterly destroyed–just as the first one was. And the inhabitants of the earth will be busy “living their lives,” completely shocked by their sudden judgment.
“And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”
Sad, really–because many of the workers of iniquity seem to be genuinely nice and well-meaning–and so unnecessary.
But THIS is the end of those poor, deceived souls who choose to build on the crumbling foundations of illegitimate supernatural power: working for centuries in exchange for twelve-hundred-sixty days of earthly power.
It is not too late to reconsider.
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.”
