“But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be…”

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.
Matthew 24:37-39 — King James Version Holy Bible
Far too many if they think on the days of Noah at all scoff. Doubt. Mock. Deny. Even a growing majority of professed Christians in these times view what is written in God’s Word regarding Noah as allegory. A nice little story to tell children and have them color pictures of an ark and animals. Most don’t believe in the Flood, and sadly, many who do are not rightly dividing the word when they read the words of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in Matthew chapter 24.
The days of Noah were the most wicked on the earth.
We have no way of knowing just how many human beings were alive when Noah and his family was, but we do know that among all the living flesh on earth God only spared 8 human beings out of the masses.
The eight were saved due to Noah’s righteousness.
The masses destroyed utterly due to their wickedness and complete unrighteousness.
Jesus tells us, through His teachings His disciples as they walked through Jerusalem that in the days prior to His return the times will be like the times of Noah — the greatest level of wickedness among the people the earth has ever seen.
In the days of Noah this wickedness was confined to a much smaller area of the earth as in our time, in which all the surface of this earth is inhabited to some degree. Even Antarctica and the most inhospitable places on earth due to mans technology and increased knowledge.
There will not be any more Great Flood, due to mans unrighteousness and God’s wrath covering the earth from the heavens and the oceans opening up like fountains and pouring out rain upon the earth for 40 days and 40 nights unlike water has ever fallen on earth.
This time, in our times, it’s all going to end.
God and Christ will have had enough.
Wickedness and unrighteousness will reign and to the degree no other man or woman will have their name added into the Book of Life through their faith in Jesus as God’s risen Son and as Messiah, Lord of all who believe upon Him and obey Him.
The numbers of faithful upon the earth at the time of Christ’s return will be such a small percentage of the total population. Due to the great falling away. The great rise of false prophets and false teachers. The embracing of unsound and corrupted doctrine passing for “Christianity” when in truth it will be the word of Satan men and women and children will be following and not the word of God.
We are seeing and entering through the gate of the sorrows. The time of woe and troubles this earth and people, beasts, the fowls of the air, the seas, mountains, land, grasses and all life on earth has never witnessed before — and never will again.
We are living in the times of Noah.
Know what that means.
Take comfort if saved and serving in obedience God our Father and Jesus our Lord.
Tremble and quake if you are of the ways of this lost, dark, wicked unrighteous world.
Turn to God. Turn to Christ. Turn to the Holy Spirit. Turn to the Holy Bible. In faith. In obedience.
Place the ink of your name in the Book of Life through your faith and obedience in the saving shed blood of Jesus Christ and live to serve the Lord our God and walk in His ways not the worlds ways.
Be strong in these deceiving, confusing wicked as wicked will be times — which will only grow worse and require more strength, more constant turning to God, to Christ, faith in the Holy Spirit to provide and help us.
Things may appear “normal” as people are getting married, working, living out their lives, buying and selling, having children, moving, eating, drinking, and so on — just as in the days of Noah.
But do not first think Great Flood and ark in thinking upon those days.
Think the total consuming wickedness of man, woman, and child which had turned from God and to their own lusts and consuming ways turning from God.
Matthew 24 — King James Version Holy Bible
Temple Destruction Foretold
1And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. 2And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Witnessing to All Nations
9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The Abomination of Desolation
15When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 23Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25Behold, I have told you before.
The Return of the Son of Man
26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.
29Immediately 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: 30And 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. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
The lesson of the Fig Tree
32Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Be Ready at Any Hour
36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For 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, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Genesis 6 — King James Version Holy Bible
The Wickedness of Man
1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, 2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. 3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. 4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
5And 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. 6And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. 7And 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.
Noah’s Favor with God
8But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
Noah Builds the Ark
13And God said unto 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. 14Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. 15And this is the fashion which thou shalt make it of: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of it thirty cubits. 16A window shalt thou make to the ark, and in a cubit shalt thou finish it above; and the door of the ark shalt thou set in the side thereof; with lower, second, and third stories shalt thou make it. 17And, behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven; and every thing that is in the earth shall die. 18But with thee will I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons’ wives with thee. 19And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shalt thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. 20Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come unto thee, to keep them alive. 21And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them. 22Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.
