As It Was In The Days Of Noah

By David J. Stewart | April 2013

Luke 17:26-27, “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 Bible prophecies that in the end-times mankind will return to a condition of worldwide moral rot and decay, as it was in the days of Noah. The world has deteriorated, united together against the Lord. The Bible says that every THOUGHT of people's heart was continually evil. God destroyed the world...

Genesis 6:5-7, “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. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.”

The Bible likens the end-times to the apostate time of Noah...

Luke 17:26-27, “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.”

Notice in the preceding passage of Scripture in verse 26 that it says “they married wives” (not “a wife,” but “wives”). It was a time of sexual immorality. They were “given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.” It was a time of woeful fornication and dirty-mindedness all day long, “evil continually” as the Bible says in Genesis 6:4. They were living for sex, sex, sex! Like today, marriage was no longer sacred, it was only a continuation of adulterous marriages, whoremongering, quitting one marriage after another. CALIFORNICATION!!! It was a time of everyone living for the lusts of the flesh. Hollywood has popularized adultery (what the great man of God Pastor J. Vernon McGee wisely termed “progressive adultery”). As California goes, so goes the nation, because of the evil influences of television (MP3 sermon clip by Brother Lester Roloff from 1967 about the evils of TV | Evils Of TV!).

Notice in Luke 17:28... “AND AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT” ...

Luke 17:28-30, “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. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

We're living in a wicked time of not working out marriage problems anymore; but instead, quitting and moving-on. You've got quacko psychologists and backslidden religious people in churches encouraging divorce. They say, “You know, well, if it just doesn't work out, hang-it-up and move on!” Divorce is a horrible sin that perpetuates for a lifetime. We are living in a time of liars, vow-breakers and quitters. The days of Noah were a time of not working-out marriage troubles, instead of God's will “UNTIL DEATH DO US PART.”

Sexual immorality is epidemic across the world. Sex tourism is everywhere. Pedophilia is everywhere, epidemic in Japan. Marriage is no longer sacred. People have sex with multiple other partners and are still married to someone else, having no conscience about the whole thing. Prostitution is everywhere. 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 foretold that in the last days people would live only for pleasures, backbiters, high-minded, boasters, disobedient to parents, fierce and lacking any natural feelings. People have become shallow, having no feelings, no happiness, no substance. It's all a part of the New Age Movement. The workplace is saturated with sexual promiscuousness, sleeping around and open adultery. Even some liberal churches are embracing the gay lifestyle.

The Lord said He is coming (will be revealed) in “THAT DAY.” What day? In the day when there's not going to be the sanctity of marriage anymore. There's not going to be an effort to work-it-out anymore, just file for divorce. Celebrities daily are in the news for running off with someone else instead of their spouse. There's no shame, no remorse, no regret! If you can file for divorce and have no remorse or regret, you are very far away from the love of God. Love never fails. Marriage - Part 16 (Pastor Hyles. You didn't used to love somebody. Great stuff! Full MP3). The sacredness of the bed, marriage and life is gone today from society. God condemns the whole mess of it. There is no sanctity in the marriage vows anymore.

Greedy, ambulance-chasing, evil lawyers are around every corner these days encouraging people to file for divorce! God hates divorce (Jeremiah 3:20). People no longer have any loyalty.  Divorce is a sin. That's everyone's answer these days to marriage conflicts... JUST QUIT! One woman divorced her husband because some wicked nutcase showed her some feminist statistics that said there was a 71% likelihood of domestic abuse if she stay married. So she divorced her husband. That's how shallow people are today!

These are all signs of the times before the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We're living in the times as it was during Noah, being brainwashed to accept homosexuals. Homosexuality is perversion and outright sin. God hated homosexuality so much that He established the death penalty for it (Leviticus 20:13). God didn't want homosexuals influencing other people. Truly, God will forgive and save any homosexual, but God demands that such a person first admit that homosexuality is a perversion and sin. A homosexual who defends his sin and refuses to acknowledge it as perversion is deceived and cannot be saved (1st John 1:8-10). God only saves sinners... “THE UNGODLY” (Romans 4:5-6).

The word “sodomy” comes from the city of Sodom, which God destroyed by raining down fire and brimstone for their wickedness (Jude 1:7). The Presbyterian church is beginning to adopt a policy to ordain homosexuals, but only if they promise not to practice their homosexuality. That's sickening! Lutheran churches accept gays and have no conditions! They will take in the practicing homosexual as a member of their church (religion).

Luke 17:26-28 mentions buying and selling. There's nothing wrong with buying or selling, unless that's all that you're living for. It was a time of materialism and selfishness. These are the signs of the times, when people are lovers of themselves. 2nd Timothy 3:1-2, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy...” 307,000 American women underwent breast-enlargement surgery in 2011. God Destroyed The World Because Of Evil Thoughts. Adult sex toys, internet dating, Viagra, male enhancement products and perversion of every sort are being relentlessly promoted on television. Our nation has become a cesspool (where the sewer drains meet) of iniquity.

Jesus prophesied concerning the Tribulation period in Matthew 24:10-12, “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.” Already in the world today we are strongly seeing these signs of the times.

Hostility against Christians WILL increase as we progress into the end-times. During the Tribulation, Christians will be beheaded. All of the saints (the Church) will be “CAUGHT UP” (1st Thessalonians 4:17) at the Rapture. Then the Antichrist will be revealed at the beginning of the Tribulation, which will last for 7-years. During the Tribulation many people will believe on the name of Jesus Christ and be saved. These are the saints who will be beheaded for witnessing in Jesus' name. Revelation 20:4, “And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”

The media has been demonizing God-fearing, Bible-believing, Christians as monsters filled with hatred, intolerance and bigotry. But you'll never hear them say that about God! They are trying to separate Christians from the God of the Bible. They claim that fundamentalists are a hate cult like the Ku Klux Klan against Negroes. Nothing could be further from the truth. Civil rights has nothing to do with a right to be immoral. God created all men of equal worth as far as race, heritage or ethnicity. However, no one has a “right” from God to commit immorality. No one has a “right” to commit murder, which is what abortion is. No one has a “right” to commit adultery, which is what remarriage is. And no one has a “right” to commit homosexuality, which is what same-sex marriage is. These are all sins which bring the wrath of God (Romans 1:24-32; Colossians 3:5-6).

Please understand that I am not trying to disgrace anyone. I am not trying to browbeat or make homosexuals feel inferior. I'm a sinner as much as anybody else in God's eyes (James 2:10). The only righteousness that I have is the righteousness of Jesus Christ in me (Romans 4:5-6; Galatians 2:20). I'm only exposing the sin of homosexuality because that's what I'm supposed to do as a Christian. Ephesians 5:11 commands every believer to refute all works of darkness. Psalms 94:16 commands every believer to rise and stand up against evil doers and the workers of iniquity. Psalms 97:10 commands every believer to hate evil. I'm exposing those who say God's wrong and they're right. God is right!!! There is no controversy if you believe the Bible. We all have a decision to make. Where do you stand? I'm standing with God.

I believe it is abundantly clear that we are now living in the end-times. The homosexualization of the world is strong evidence of the end-times. Shameful Lesbian And Sodomite Same-Sex Marriages Now Legal In New Zealand. The widespread perverting of the Bible with umpteen new versions is evidence of the end-times. The saber-rattling of the nations, and the Middle-East build-up is evidence of the end-times. The Lord foretold that sexual immorality would once again become epidemic in the end times, as it was in the days of Noah. Luke 17:27, “...They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day...”

They Knew Not Until The Flood Came!!!

Luke 17:26-27, “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.”

Matthew 24:37-39, “But as the days of Noe 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.”
