TODAY’S WORLD RESEMBLING THAT OF NOAH’S TIME!

Editors note;

What did Jesus Christ warn would precede His imminent return to this earth? Just before Christ’s return, ther would be a worldwide tribulation, a time so great, there would be none like it. In fact, so great and tumultuous, that there never would be again a time like this, and that except God cut short those days, there would be no flesh saved alive! But why and for whom would the Great God be cutting short that awful time? For the sakes of the ELECT!!! Matthew.24:21-22 first shows this, then verse 29. Without space or time here to magnify the reasons and causes of this time, I will only show what God’s word says in relation to the part that relates directly to the reason this article has been posted, and what surely is just around the corner!

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days, shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet (contrary to ‘rapture’ religious teachings) and they shall gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew.24:29-31.

  But what are Christ’s elect to be watching for to avoid this great tribulation? He said in 3 of the 4-gospels to watch that you may be accounted worthy. Matt.25:13; Lk.21:36; Mk.13:33. 3-Times for emphasis. If God emphasises anything 3-times, you better sit up and take notice! But what are the elect to be watching for? The things he said would be signs that the end is near. The end? The end of humanities abominable reign on this earth.

So what is it that is so abominable that God will end mankinds reign and finally cut short the time of trouble so great, that none is like it, no nor ever will be again?

    First of all, man has from the beginning rejected his Creators instructions and commandments from the original garden where he was placed to maintain a perfect environment. He disobeyed God, believed that old Serpent called Satan and the Devil, and believed the big lie from Satan that he had an immortal soul, and that he would not die. Gen.3:1-5.

    Of course, few believe there is even a God today, because many profess His name, saying Lord, Lord, Christ said not everyone that says unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, except he which does the will of My Father which is in heaven. (Matt.7:21.) I mention this only in passing, because if they knew God, believed Him and were worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth,  they would be in obedience to His eternal Laws. But getting back to the message; The theme being shown here is that there would be many signs, or signals indicating Christ’s imminent return to this earth, and the one I am showing here is that it would be like it was at the time of Noah’s flood, the Great Deluge, which took all mankind away, and destroyed them, except for 8-humans, the family members of Noah, who followed his righteous obedience to God.

    And what was evident at the time of Noah? ” 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”. Gen.6:5-6.  What was the result? You already know; And the LORD said I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, (why beast also?) and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repents me that I have made them”.

     Man had deviated from every good way, violence had filled the earth, and every wicked thought man was doing in the sight of his Creator God. “The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said to Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold I will destroy them with the earth.” Vs.11-13.

    The article displayed above has become commonplace. and sodomy has filled this earth to the point now, that they are demanding “marriage” equality! Two males together is an abomination in the sight of Almighty God!!!

    Let’s read first in the Old Testament. Lev.18:22 You shall not lie with mankind as you do with womankind: it is abomination. God says those who do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. I Cor.6:9.  Noah was such a man of righteousness, which means obedience to God’s Laws and ways, which are the commandments of the LORD.

    The word of the living God states categorically that all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, for instruction in righteousness! (II Tim.3:16) And The Lord himself said that the end of mankind would be preceded by certain events, just prior to his return to the earth. Let’s read it in conclusion; “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour, knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only. BUT AS THE DAYS OF NOAH WERE, SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE. Matt.24:35-37.

    Yes, mankind will all be doing the same things that were in the days of Noah when the flood came and took them all away. The challenge for us is will we be like this world, or like righteous Noah, and those saints throughout the Bible who obeyed and feared God?

       What did God inspire the apostle to the Gentiles to teach in this regard? Rom.1:24, 26-28. “Therefore God gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts to dishonour their own bodies between themselves. For this cause God gave them up to vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise the men, leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust, one toward another; men with men, working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was appropriate. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, (a mind devoid of judgement) to do those things which are not convenient.

    Todays reckless Governments of this world have so fulfilled these words, as many have done in the past, as God continues this discourse through the apostle Paul; “Being filled with all UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, malignity; whisperers; Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful. Who knowing the judgement of God, that they which do such things are worthy of DEATH, not only DO THE SAME, (that’s todays generation) but have pleasure in them that do them” (All emphasis mine throughout)

   Any “thinking” they are following the Bible, which is the word of the Living God, the God of Israel, but doesn’t see a problem with homosexual “unions” likewise fulfills many prophecies, one in particular comes to mind. Isa.1:5-7. Where God condemns this world in which Israel have become entangled, saying:

    “Why should you be stricken anymore? You will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the the sole of the foot even to the head, there is no soundness in it; but wounds and bruises, and putrifying sores: they have not been closed, neither bound up, neither molified with ointment”.  In other words, there is no remedy for the sickness that fills the entirety of Israel and the west, and ultimately, the entire earth, justa s it was in the days of Noah.

God then goes on to foretell how Israel has become overthrown as by strangers in their midst, and their cities to be burned with fire, leaving only a small remnant. And that if it were not for the daughter of Zion, (As shown by the elect in Matt.24:22.)  who is left as a stand alone house in the midst of a besieged city, we would all be like Sodom and Gomorrah! In other words, TOTALLY DESTROYED, just as the towns and cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for their filthy conduct. God recorded for us in scripture that God delivered Lot, Abrahams nephew form the filthy conduct of the wicked just prior to turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, OVERTHROWING THEM AS AN EXAMPLE to those that after should live UNGODLY! Read in your own Bible. (II Peter.2:5-9.)

Be warned, take heed, be diligent, and fear God.

In conclusion;

  “Watch you therefore, for you know neither the day, nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes”. Mat.25:13. The Lord promised that the righteous will go into eternal life while others will go away to everlasting punishment in Matt.25:46, and John.5:29 and many other places.

 

French court rules mayors cannot block same-sex marriage

Vincent Autin and Bruno Boileau were the first same-sex couple to marry in France in May 2013.

CNN) — France’s top court ruled Friday that French mayors cannot refuse to officiate same-sex marriages based on their personal, moral or religious beliefs.

The Constitutional Council ruled that the same-sex marriage law does not infringe on the mayors’ “freedom of conscience” and therefore should be applied.

A group of seven mayors had filed an appeal with the Constitutional Council on September 18 stating their opposition to conducting same-sex marriage.

A bill allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt was passed earlier this year by the French parliament and signed into law by President Francois Hollande.

A growing number of countries around the world now allow same-sex marriage, the majority of them in Europe.

The Netherlands was the first, in 2001, and it was later joined by Belgium, Spain, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Portugal, Denmark and France. A bill to allow same-sex marriage in England and Wales is also now law, though it isn’t expected to come into force until 2014.

Argentina, Uruguay, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand and South Africa are the non-European countries in the group, according to the Pew Research Center.

Same-sex marriage is also legal in some parts of Mexico and the United States.
