As in the Days of Noah
All around us, we see a world that is becoming unfamiliar.
Our lives are being transformed, some in ways that are drastic, some in ways that are only a mild inconvenience.
Around the world there are places where the level of violence and hatred being unleashed are completely out of control. People are stunned and frightened. There are even places where dangerous situations are not only tolerated but even promoted.
We must ask ourselves if this is a hint of the future. Sadly, the answer is, “Yes;” these are the beginning of what the Bible calls “end times.”
So to understand what’s coming, we need to go back a similar time.
[Then] YHWH saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.”
God sent the flood bringing death and destruction to His creation. Noah and his family were spared and soon repopulated the earth but it didn’t take long before mankind returned to his wicked ways.
The problem was and remains man’s heart, which from birth is “deceitful and wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9) and will continue to be so without God’s grace and man’s faith in Messiah Yeshua.
And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the [Messiah]: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the [Messiah] is revealed.
God has promised that there will come a day when Yeshua will restore all creation back to God’s original design. Our series will explore these End Times to prepare ourselves and others.
PRAY FOR DISCERNMENT TO UNDERSTAND THESE TIMES AND WISDOM TO KNOW WHAT TO DO.
