Every now and again, I take another “gander” at what is taking place, and think to myself, “Can it get any worse?” Then I conclude: “You know, after Noah started to build the ark, it took him quite an extended time to complete, 100 years. (That “gopher wood”, probably cypress or cedar) was exceptional.
One of the things that catches our attention as we move through the Scriptures is that the Lord Jesus said that: “For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah.” (Matthew 24:37) It is impossible to imagine things getting any worse, but they will until the Day of His return.
I am aware that one might be a Pre-, a Mid- or a Post-Tribulationist; however it is impossible to by-pass the truth that Jesus said that He would return and that things would be in a moral world-wide mess prior His return. It leads us to conclude that man is acting more and more like His statement. One cannot erase that fact.
In light of these warnings, what should we do?
- We need to pray to the Lord God Almighty that many may turn to Him in these perilous days.
- We need to personally apply the principles of Holy Writ, the Bible, to our own living with the anticipation that it will encourage others to do likewise.
Recently I read concerning the Word of God:
“Know it in your head, stow it in your heart, show it in your life and sow it in the world.”
Well put for the hour in which we live!
