I would like to say for the record, that I love everyone. That I desire for all to be saved and be with our Lord Jesus Christ. At the same time I would like to say that much of what I write will not be pleasant for many people to hear. I stand strong in my convictions and in my faith. With that being said, much of the bible is not pleasant for people to hear either. Much of what Jesus preached was not pleasant for people to hear but it was the truth!
My main purpose is to do what God wills me to do and to please Him. To spread His word however He leads me to do it. Like I have said before, and I have written on my “Home Page”, I take the bible literally. Sure there are parables in the bible and we must be able to discern them from true stories. I believe the bible to be 100% truth, if it’s not then I shouldn’t even be reading it!
Often times, especially now, I feel as though many, many people are hearing the truth yet not hearing it. That they are not able to discern what is true and what is a lie, not heeding the warning calls being made about what is happening in the world today.
God is giving us warnings! All of the natural disasters, the man-made disasters, the increase in evil, wickedness, crime, chaos and confusion. These are all warning signs my friends. Believe it or not, it’s the truth. Listen to what the Lord is telling you, because soon it will be too late.
I often feel like Noah must have felt before the great flood. He was diligently preparing for the flood that God warned him would come. He was warning the lost that it was coming, that God would destroy all living things on the face of the planet. Yet none believed (except Noah and his family). They carried on with their evil, wicked ways day after day. It must have seemed to them like Noah was preparing forever, if they even paid any attention. He was approximately 500 years old when God told him to build the Ark, and he was 600 years old when the flood came. Remember, people in that day lived for hundreds of years. Yet the day came when Noah gave them one last chance, and they rejected his call, the door to the Ark was closed. We all know what happened after that.
Although the scriptures do not tell us that Noah actually preached to the lost, I believe that he did. For he was the only righteous person on the face of the earth, other than his family. Noah was a holy man who walked faithfully with God.
This story of Noah and the flood, I believe, is a representation of Christ’s salvation for the world. The flood representing God’s wrath and His judgement. Noah representing the faithful servants of Christ. And the Ark, the door, representing our salvation from judgement, salvation through the blood of Jesus Christ. He is the door, He is the way to the Father in heaven, He is the only way!
As Jesus said:
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.”
People of that time were being warned of the coming flood, of the wrath of God. Yet none believed, expect Noah and his family. They did not listen, they did not fear God as Noah did. And they all perished.
This is how I feel now. Like I am warning the world of what is coming, that the wrath and judgement of God will soon be upon them. Yet so many are not listening, nor are they heeding the call. They can see the warning signs (the Ark), they can hear the Christians call (Noah building the Ark and preaching), yet they do not listen. They continue with life as usual, eating, drinking, marrying, giving in marriage, living in sin and wickedness. Blinded by sin and unrighteousness, they see, they hear, but do not know.
All of these signs that we now see in the world will increase in intensity and in numbers before the rapture of the church. This is God speaking to us, warning us to come to Him while we still can. This is it, it is real, it is here, and it is now! The times are not going to get any better until the thousand-year reign of Christ. That’s how it is, you cannot change it, nobody can change it, you can only change your eternal destiny! It’s your choice to make.
God Bless my friends, until next time!
