Just As It Was In The Day Of Noah, and Lot

posted by PrayerWarrior

In Matthew 24 The Lord Jesus speaks of the times of Noah, and the end being just like that, yet people disregard Jesus words and pass it off like it is some sort of nothingness. Shouldn’t we as His own believe the Lord above all? In Luke 17 Jesus says just as it was in the days of Lot so shall it be when He returns. Don’t people notice the truth of the word of God, when the Lord our God in the form of the Son, speaks to us? Why would anyone think the Lord has changed? Why would the lord do anything different in a different time if the Lord our God is never changing?

Let’s take a look first, at the Genesis account of Noah and then Lot. Let’s see what happened and when it all happened so that we may inform ourselves on this important matter. Gen 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

Noah Pleases God
9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. 11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth. 13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch.

15 And this is how you shall make it: The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. 16 You shall make a window for the ark, and you shall finish it to a cubit from above; and set the door of the ark in its side. You shall make it with lower, second, and third decks. 17 And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die. 18 But I will establish My covenant with you; and you shall go into the ark—you, your sons, your wife, and your sons’ wives with you.

19 And of every living thing of all flesh you shall bring two of every sort into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female. 20 Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind, and of every creeping thing of the earth after its kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive. 21 And you shall take for yourself of all food that is eaten, and you shall gather it to yourself; and it shall be food for you and for them.” 22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.

Gen 7:1 Then the Lord said to Noah, “Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation. 2 You shall take with you seven each of every clean animal, a male and his female; two each of animals that are unclean, a male and his female; 3 also seven each of birds of the air, male and female, to keep the species alive on the face of all the earth. 4 For after seven more days I will cause it to rain on the earth forty days and forty nights, and I will destroy from the face of the earth all living things that I have made.” 5 And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him. 6 Noah was six hundred years old when the floodwaters were on the earth.

7 So Noah, with his sons, his wife, and his sons’ wives, went into the ark because of the waters of the flood. 8 Of clean animals, of animals that are unclean, of birds, and of everything that creeps on the earth, 9 two by two they went into the ark to Noah, male and female, as God had commanded Noah. 10 And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the earth. 11 In the six hundredth year of Noah’s life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, on that day all the fountains of the great deep were broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened. 12 And the rain was on the earth forty days and forty nights.

Now look at that on the seventh day Noah entered the ark, on that DAY the flood waters came and the fountains of the great deep were opened up! This is so very important to pay attention to that is why I made the word day all in capitals. Let’s look at it a little more with the next set of verses. 13 On the very same day Noah and Noah’s sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth, and Noah’s wife and the three wives of his sons with them, entered the ark— 14 they and every beast after its kind, all cattle after their kind, every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, every bird of every sort. 15 And they went into the ark to Noah, two by two, of all flesh in which is the breath of life. 16 So those that entered, male and female of all flesh, went in as God had commanded him; and the Lord shut him in.

17 Now the flood was on the earth forty days. The waters increased and lifted up the ark, and it rose high above the earth. 18 The waters prevailed and greatly increased on the earth, and the ark moved about on the surface of the waters. 19 And the waters prevailed exceedingly on the earth, and all the high hills under the whole heaven were covered. 20 The waters prevailed fifteen cubits upward, and the mountains were covered. 21 And all flesh died that moved on the earth: birds and cattle and beasts and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth, and every man.

22 All in whose nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all that was on the dry land, died. 23 So He destroyed all living things which were on the face of the ground: both man and cattle, creeping thing and bird of the air. They were destroyed from the earth. Only Noah and those who were with him in the ark remained alive. 24 And the waters prevailed on the earth one hundred and fifty days.

Now the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 24:37-39 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the (“day”) that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. So the Lord is telling us on the very same day that Noah and his family entered the ark the protection of the Lord, or his snatching them out of harms way, was the very same day His wrath was poured out on the unbelievers and evil men. Not 7 years later, not even a day later, but on the very same day that Noah and his family were shut into the ark, the wrath was poured out.

Let’s also now look at the Genesis account of Lot’s story. Gen 19:15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.”

18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.” 21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”

23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. 27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.

Now again we see that on the very same day that Lot left Sodom and Gomorrah, that was when the angels who went to save Lot, were able to destroy the two cities of filth and dishonor. People love to lie to themselves and think that this Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed due to their gay ways, but that is why it is called sodomy, because it was first done there in Sodom and Gomorrah. They wanted to have sex with the angels. Though God is the one who rained down fire and brimstone from heaven.

Now let’s take a look at what Jesus had to say about Lot, and when the wrath of God was poured out on Sodom and Gomorrah also. Luke 17:28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 (“but on the day”) that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed. Over and over again we see that the day of the Lord is one day. It is only one day and one day only.

Look in Zechariah 14:7 (“It shall be one day”) Which is known to the Lord— Neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen That it will be light. People again convince themselves of all sorts of errors. It really is a very strange and sad thing to notice how often people will mislead themselves even to be able to believe the lies of men. The sad truth is this, many people will stand before the lord on the second judgment after the millennial kingdom, and will be told I never knew you depart from me you who are iniquity, Matt 7:21-23.

If we do not know the truth of the Lord our God by His word, then we do not know the Lord, and He does not know us! Please make sure you are not believing lies of satan, passed onto you by men who are deceived by satan themselves. We must at all times be like the Bereans in Acts 17:11. These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

The word will either prove out the truth or the lies. But the word itself must be searched. I do not mean, read one verse no no. I mean you must search out the concept and the meaning of the verse used. I mean read two verses before the verse used, and two after the verse used to capture what the Lord means. 9 times out of ten your going to find the truth of the matter. Unless of course you want to see the lies of men and satan. Then you will somehow convince yourself that you see what the liars are saying, written in the word.

To sum up this message, what I can clearly see here is this, The very same day that God takes up the dead in Christ, and those who are alive and made into immortal perfect incorruptible flesh, is the same day that His wrath will be poured out, through Jesus Christ!! He pointedly gave me these verses the other morning as I was waking up. It was important enough to him to give me these verses and understanding’s not that I need them but that some out there need them to see and hear the truth from the Lord and His word, which is Jesus Christ!

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. Jesus was God and is still God!

Lot, Noah And The End Of The Age

posted by PrayerWarrior

Disclaimer: Even though there is plenty in this article about homosexuality,I want to make it clear to my readers. I do not endorse, nor condemn homosexuality. It is not my place to judge nor to decide if someone is, or is not worthy of God’s love. God loves each and every one of us with a love we cannot even come close to fathoming. He loves murderers,gay and lesbian,thieves,pastors,just every day average folks,all the same.

In Luke 17 The Lord tells us that things in the times of the end of the age,would be just like the times of Noah,and the flood. As well as the same way they were in Lot’s time, before the Lord utterly destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Evil was rampant on the earth,in those times. God said that the thoughts of men were only evil all of the time, and that man must be destroyed. The Lord was very upset within Himself that He had even made man.

That in itself is just horrifying to me, that God was so upset He felt that He should not have even made man. But let’s take a look at what was going on in Noah’s time,then we will also look at Lot’s times. We will compare those times to the time we live in right now.

And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man: they were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying and giving in marriage,until the day Noah entered the Ark and the flood came and destroyed them all.It was the same as happened in the days of Lot..

Luke 17:26,27 26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men, and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown. 5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 The LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
So there was rampant sin on the earth. There was evil so corrupt it made God hurt to His heart that He had made man. The Nephilim which were half man half fallen angel were very evil. The fallen angels were teaching humans all kinds of things the Lord did not want them to know. They were learning things at great speed. We here now, in this time are learning so fast we cannot even keep up with the new technology. Ask any computer tech and they will tell you, it is a constant of being schooled in the latest and greatest technology.

The angels were not supposed to leave their allotted station as spiritual beings. Yet they did. Those angels are now in hell in chains awaiting the special judgment just for them,for their disobedience to the Lords commands for them. This is found in the book of Jude, verse 6 . And angels who did not keep (care for, guard, and hold to) their own first place of power but abandoned their proper dwelling place–these He has reserved in custody in eternal chains (bonds) under the thick gloom of utter darkness until the judgment and doom of the great day.Amplified bible.

The book of Enoch though not one of the books of the bible ,was adhered to by Jewish people for centuries, explains all of this really well. That the fallen angels took on the form of man and had their way with the women of the earth the daughters of man. They taught them many things which the Lord was not willing that the people should know at those times.

We know in the time that we are living in,there is evil a plenty among us,all around us. There is evil on every corner, just waiting to pounce. There is rampant homosexuality, pedophilia, rapes and murders. There is even something called ( and this makes me ill) bestiality,that is a strange lust to be sure. Bestiality is sex with animals. There is abortion, all over the place,and for no other reason than it is inconvenient for the mother to be.

Gen 7 The LORD said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found favor in the eyes of the LORD.9 These are the records of the generations of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless in his time; Noah walked with God. God will again blot out man. Leaving a mere ten percent of humans whom He will hide away in the very end, of the end of the age time. The reason for the ten percent being left is to recreate the people on the earth during the millennial Kingdom.

LOT
Luke 17:28-33 28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. 32 Remember Lot’s wife! 33 Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it.

Jude verse 7 [The wicked are sentenced to suffer] just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the adjacent towns–which likewise gave themselves over to impurity and indulged in unnatural vice and sensual perversity–are laid out [in plain sight] as an exhibit of perpetual punishment [to warn] of everlasting fire.
Unnatural = 1.contrary to the laws or course of nature. 2.at variance with the character or nature of a person, animal, or plant.
3.at variance with what is normal or to be expected: the unnatural atmosphere of the place.

Vice = 1.an immoral or evil habit or practice.
2.immoral conduct; depraved or degrading behavior: a life of vice.
3.sexual immorality, especially prostitution.

The people were engaging in perverse pleasures, unnatural vices in the open where every one could see and partake, if they so chose. There were even children engaging in such perverse acts,which will be explained further in this article.

The most common response to the question “What was the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah?” is that it was homosexuality. That is how the term “sodomy” came to be used to refer to anal sex between two men, whether consensual or forced. Clearly, homosexuality was part of why God destroyed the two cities. The men of Sodom and Gomorrah wanted to perform homosexual gang rape on the two angels (who were disguised as men). At the same time, it is not biblical to say that homosexuality was the only reason why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.

Ezekiel 16:49-50 declares, “Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me…” The Hebrew word translated “detestable” refers to something that is morally disgusting and is the exact same word used in Leviticus 18:22 that refers to homosexuality as an “abomination.” Similarly, Jude 7 declares, “…Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion.” So, again, while homosexuality was not the only sin the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah indulged in, it does appear to be the primary reason for the destruction of the cities.

Those who try to explain away the biblical condemnations of homosexuality claim that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was inhospitality. The men of Sodom and Gomorrah were certainly being inhospitable. There is probably nothing more inhospitable than homosexual gang rape. But to say God completely destroyed two cities and all their inhabitants for being inhospitable seriously misses the point. While Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty of many other sins, homosexuality was the reason God poured fiery sulfur on the cities, completely destroying them and all of their inhabitants. To this day, the area where Sodom and Gomorrah were located remains a desolate wasteland. Sodom and Gomorrah serve as a powerful example of how God feels about sin in general, and homosexuality specifically.

Our Times
Today we have sin in all it’s forms all around us. It is getting so that i do not read signs anymore,as I drive down the road. Due to the explicit ads everywhere. I was remarking to my husband today as we drove along look at this look at that man it is pretty disgusting around the world these days. Not only that but the world at large is heating up and chaos is now on it’s way to all parts of the world,coming to an area near you very soon.

Here is the ten commandments and let’s see how many of them are now being looked past.
Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV
1 “I am the Lord your God, you shall have no other gods before Me.
2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
6 “You shall not murder.
7 “You shall not commit adultery.
8 “You shall not steal.
9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10 “You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

Too many, even Christians, have a different god than the biblical God. They have created the god who suits them and their needs. They do not pay attention to the word of God which God assures us is how we get to know Him.
There are idols all over the world of peoples gods. These are not even real gods they are sticks wood and stone. Those are graven images. The Lords name is taken in vain all over the place all over the tv, and in person you hear all the time, people calling out the name of the Lord in swears and just all the time. It is disgusting and He will hold them accountable for it.

Hardly anyone anywhere keeps the Sabbath as holy any more. The sabbath is not Sunday. It is the seventh day which is and always has been Saturday.Honor your father and mother,that one is so seriously not adhered to these days. Kids and even adults alike do not honor their parents. They are the first ones to point out the flaws of their parents.

Murder is every where. There is murder for hire,murderous rages,mass murder, hatred all over the place. Jesus said if you hate someone, it as good as if you murdered them in your heart. Adultery is so bad it is treated as if it is not even a problem these days. Some people these days even commit adultery with their spouses consent. Orgies and such things going on. Jesus said if you lust after someone of the opposite sex it is as good as having committed adultery already. Lust is the ad seller. They use sexual innuendo to sell everything!!

Thievery is also rampant. There are thieves and robbers all over the place. It is getting even worse,and I suspect it will keep getting worse as people begin to starve and go hungry for lack of money,food,and gas. People have lost their jobs, and are now running out of unemployment benefits. The government is saying the unemployment rate has dropped,but if anything it has increased people.

They do not count any longer,those who have exhausted their unemployment benefits as unemployed. Those people are not counted in the unemployment rates. It is lies we are being told. Which takes us to our next sin. Lying is everywhere. It is so bad that you cannot even begin to know what is truth or what is lies according to everyone. Truth is no longer absolute in this world,it is according to liberals,relative. Truth is relative to everyone else. Meaning truth is truth according to ones own beliefs. What a load of garbage that is!

Covetousness is actually jealousy to the point of,people saying within themselves,well how come they have this that or the other thing and I don’t? Why should this person have this life when i don’t? Our government is now actually promoting covetousness. They think it is their job to share the wealth. To basically be some kind of modern day Robin Hood. They want to take people who have worked their tails off to get where they are,and bring them down to a lower level of wealth, so they can take their hard earned money and give it to some sleazy schlep who has never worked a day for it.

Yes our world is not a lovely place any more. We are assured evil would walk among men again in the end times,and it is evident in every moment of our lives. But people here is a warning. It is not half as bad as it is going to be. Often times I have heard folks speak of the old bible times and say they wished they could have been alive in those times. Well grab onto your suspenders and hold on cause here we go. Your going to be alive for the most amazing things to occur as have never occurred before in the history of the world.
May God Bless and watch over you and yours,may He strengthen you all, and may you all find joy in the preparation for the times coming.
We are commanded to love one another as we love the Lord,I am working hard at this particular command,I pray that you all do too.
Love in Christ,Tammy
