I’ve been thinking a lot about Noah lately.

I have to believe that the days we are living in are eerily reminiscent of his moment in time.

The Lord saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of the human heart was only evil all the time. Genesis 6:5

God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. So, God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So, make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. This is how you are to build it…I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you.” Genesis 6:12-18

Now let me paint you a picture: for 120 years the people of Mesopotamia went about their daily lives having never even seen rain, passing by this crazy man hanging off the side of the ludicrously large boat he was building, yelling about an imminent flood that would cover and destroy the entire Earth.

Every blow of his hammer and very drag of his saw echoed throughout the land sounding a call to ministry and repentance.

I can almost audibly hear the foul godlessness and the vulgar mocking of their unbelief. When I close my eyes, I can see them walking by hissing their repulsive, sarcastic profanity. In the same scene, I can also see an unbothered Noah diligently hammering away, meeting them with the truth and grace he had been equipped with, confident in the work to which God had called him.

And the best part? Noah had never seen rain either, but he said yes to God anyway.

By faith, being warned by God concerning events yet unseen, in reverent fear constructed an ark for the saving of his household. By this he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith. Hebrews 11:7

Being thousands of years in hindsight of this story, not only do we have biblical proof, but we have historical and physical evidence that the flood did indeed come, and God did exactly what he said He would; because He always makes good on His promises.

Here’s where we come in:

But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Matthew 24:37-39

• I believe that we are living on the very threshold of eternity.
• I believe that heaven is being prepared to give birth to glory.
• I believe that now is the time more than ever, even in the face of persecution, to be bold and undignified in our faith.
• I believe that if you don't have a relationship with Jesus, He wants to meet you where you are; He wants you to know and live in His freedom. There is still time. He loves you so much.
• I believe that every knee will bow and every tongue will confess.
• I believe that the heart of the Lord is broken.
• I believe that the rain is coming.

Please, don't miss the boat.

Agree, our only hope! I am reading 📖 on this now. There is a lot of information on the role of the church in this insanity….. current Pope seems to fit into global cabal. Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I'll give you one insight to ponder. The next step is the rise of one world government and one world economy. The major obstacle is they have to eliminate the USA which appears to be progressing quite nicely. Once that happens it's Katie bar the door. That combined with Covid and global warming are also major players.

The only hope we have is to turn back to God and repent which will only delay things. The Bible says these things WILL come to pass.

As to repentance. What about their eyes and hearts being unable to see. So I am thinking we got off our path a long time ago. Now we are seeing the results. I am beginning to think we are past the point of no return. It will play out no matter. I think Trump was our last chance.

You're looking at things from an worldly perspective. Satan rules this fallen world.

I'm looking at things from a heavenly perspective. King Jesus rules that world.

Which ruler do you serve?

You can be in the world but you're not to be of the world.

Do you believe that you're a sinner in need of a savior?

As I think I conveyed , I am spiritual not religious….. so I don’t get into religious doctrines. GOD is my best friend!!!!! He has saved me more times than I can possibly count. My relationship with GOD is ongoing…. Every minute of every day. So I KNOW, not just believe, that I am saved!!!! Some days I wonder what my path is in 2021 but I KNOW that GOD has my back! Just how I live.

Let me ask this a different way...

Do you confess Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead?

Yes!!!!!!! Not too sure of the “confess thing “ but I know they murdered him and that on the third day he rose from the dead…. And I know he ascended into Heaven to sit at the Right Hand of GOD…..

In the passage where I got that from, if I'm mot mistaken, the word "confess" means to agree with...IOW I agree that Jesus is my Lord and I believe in my heart God raised Him from the dead.

Jesus gives believers power over all their enemies. It may be past the time if no return for this and other countries. But for God's children, who worship Him, and acknowledge Jesus Christ as their savior, they will be personally protected regardless of the circumstance of their countries. God judged Sodom. Today's America is so similar it is jaw-dropping. There is no reason to believe that God will not judge America, (especially since God has blessed us so much,) and we have (as a nation,) turned our back on Him.

I have been reading some of the jaw dropping stuff in the Bible….we’re toast! Americans have somehow managed to Build Back Better ( Sodom & Gomorrah).
Just a terrifying thought.
