“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.”
The days before the return of Jesus Christ will resemble those days before the flood in many ways.
One of the similarities will be man’s total lack of concern over God’s warnings of the coming destruction of the wicked.
Before the flood, Noah warned for 120 years. He warned of the total destruction which was to come upon the earth to the wicked (also called ‘the foolish‘).
“And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.”
Yet, no one paid any attention to Noah’s warnings. In fact, Noah warnings failed to convince even ONE person of the coming destruction.
After 120 years of warnings, not one person heeded Noah: the only ones saved besides Noah were his wife and his sons and their wives.
A total of eight people.
“And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons’ wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.”
So shall it be before the return of Jesus Christ to the earth.
All warnings of a biblical nature will be ignored.
Or laughed at.
Or replaced by the false warnings of man.
Though the biblical warnings will be universally ignored, ALL mankind will howl when they take place.
“Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.”
The men and women of the end times shall be “living their lives” right up until the very end.
“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. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”
–Luke 17:26-27, 30
HAS the reader exchanged the truth of God’s Word for the various deceptions of man?
WILL the reader be among the many who are completely taken by surprise?
THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and throw oneself at the mercy of the LORD.
“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.”
