There is little doubt the world is turning from God, what little faith they had has waned. The antichrist has done his job well; he has led willing people away from the love of Christ.
Mathew 24:37-39 When the Son of man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered the boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them away. That is the way it will be when the Son of man comes.
In the world people are concerned with only what they can have pleasure with. God brought the flood in Noah’s day; it was God’s judgement on sin. We have reached critical mass; the world does not want God to call them to accountability. Before the flood, in Noah’s day God said:
Every imagination of the thoughts of man’s heart was only evil every day.
This is where our world is today, it has no moral compass whatsoever. Government passes laws where men can marry men and women can marry women. When a Christian calls them out, they are branded as haters. Has God changed? Does He honor the laws of governments? Will He exempt people from judgement because they are protected by man’s laws? The focus of Noah’s flood is not the destruction of all those people, but rather Noah and his family lived above God’s judgement.
Noah was a preacher of righteousness, but the world refused to hear him. They were scoffers. They had no faith in Noah’s God. They spurned Noah and made fun of him, they went about their business of sinning. There were eight righteous people in the Ark. They began to have children and once again the world had a population, but the devil began to turn them away from God and once again sin reigned. God rained brimstone and fire upon Sodom and Gomorrah and this has not bothered homosexuals one little bit.
2 Timothy 3:1-2 There will be difficult times in the last days. People will be selfish, greedy, boastful, and conceited; they will be insulting, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful and irreligious; they will be unkind, merciless, slanderers, violent and fierce, they will hate the good, they will love pleasure rather than God.
We are living and witnessing the fruition of this prophecy. Many have no natural affection and because they don’t, millions of unborn babies have been torn from their wombs. I think the world’s favorite phrase is this: Don’t judge me! They do not want to be accountable and they don’t want to hear what God says about their choices.
Jesus Redeemed me from the curse, no poverty, no lack in my house.
Wealth and riches in my home, the devil is rebuked for my sake.
Father daily loads me with benefits, He takes pleasure in my increase.
I love being redeemed,
and I give my Lord all the glory.
We are about to embark on the greatest adventure and outpouring of God’s Spirit! This month the Holy Spirit is asking us to examine ourselves/take inventory so as God’s Vessels we can take our part and place in the Body of Christ!
Scriptures to meditate on:
Hebrews 12:1 Therefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily besets us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Psalm 26:4 Lord you can scrutinize me. Refine my heart and probe my every thought. Put me to the test and you will find it is true.
2 Cor 10:6 It is written, and having a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.
1 Peter 4:17 For judgement begins at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?
Psalm 139: 23, 24 Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me of unbelief and lead me in the way everlasting.
2 Timothy 2:4 No soldier when in service gets entangled in the enterprises of (civilian) life: his aim is to satisfy and please the one who enlisted him (God)! DO ALL FOR THE GLORY OF GOD!
