The Secular World View

Noah preaching copy

Commentary By:  Gordon King

Has anyone in the world noticed the things that have been happening over the past few years?  I’m talking about earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, severe storms, natural disasters, war, evil, and violence.  Not only that these events are occurring, but that they are occurring more frequently and with more intensity. 

I’m also talking about strange and unusual occurrences such as meteor strikes, blood-red waters, strange sounds, strange lights in the sky, mass animal deaths, animal attacks on humans, and massive solar flares.

Is the world taking notice?  Are they even aware of what’s going on around them?  Do they fear what is coming next, are they even curious?

Just recently I heard some secular individuals speaking about the disasters around the globe.  They did notice and seemed concerned, however, they were not alarmed.  I spoke up and said something about the end times and bible prophecy.  They had no interest in what I was telling them.  I told them it was going to get worse.  They seemed disinterested in what I was saying and walked away.  I was expecting them to get excited and ask me questions, but that didn’t happen.

I am wondering how many of you have had the same or similar situations happen to you?  Have you heard unbelievers talking about current world events and how bad it’s getting?  Do they seem worried about the future?  Do they feel as though there is no hope?  Or do they believe that it will all just work itself out?

It just amazes me that the secular world is not alarmed at what is happening in the world today!  That most of them seem so complacent with the way things are and in the direction the world is headed.  I shouldn’t be amazed at all, the bible tells us that the world will be like this in the end times.  That there will be scoffers and mockers, that people will follow their own sinful desires and lusts.

Matthew 24:37-39

“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.”

The end of days will be like in the days of Noah.  People will be living their lives as they normally do, eating, drinking, and marrying.  This sounds normal and fine, however, they do it all without God.  They continue on with their lives not heeding the warning calls of God, not watching, not listening.  Just as Noah preached for one hundred years about the coming destruction, so too the world is now being warned!

2 Timothy 3:1-5

“But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!

This is partially what Jesus meant when He said that the coming of the Son of Man will be as the days of Noah were.  People of the world will not be concerned with what believers are telling them.  They will be so wrapped up in their own world, so worldly-minded that they will have no time for God!  They will laugh at, mock and scorn the Truth.  Their eyes are blind, their hearts turned to stone!

The closer we get to Christ’s return for His church, the worse things will get.  The more difficult it will be to lead the lost to salvation!  Yet, as followers and saints of the Most High God of the Universe, we must fulfill our commission from Him.  We must spread the good news and lead the lost to salvation.  We must make disciples of all nations.  We must continue to shine the Light of Christ into the darkness of the world.

As world events continue to unfold, as bible prophecy continues to be fulfilled, we can and must use these events to bring the lost to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.  Some will hear and heed the call, yet many more will not.  Ours is not to save, but to plant the seeds and light the path which leads to eternal life.

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

  2. I not only get this with secular people but with Christians! I share what I am seeing and have read with friends and family and get put down! I have recently been called a freak by someone I really care about (brother).
    The people I have encountered seem to fall into three different categories: one group is secular sees what’s happening but are desensitized and don’t care. The Second group are Christians who see the things going on but thinks it’s almost a sin to worry about the future so would rather not think about what’s happening. The third group are Christians who acknowledge whats happening but blow it off as having happened before.
    Things are getting worse and will continue to do so until our good lord comes to get us.
    I wonder how Noah felt knowing that something big was about to happen but no one would listen. I actually think that he even questioned himself sometimes. No one around him cared, they laughed and thought he was crazy. He persevered though and from that I take the biggest lesson and persevere myself.
    God bless you Gordon

  3. Hello Gordon Sadly, many people here in south africa just close their eyes to any bad news…i dont want to know about bad things happening..dont bother me with that! Lets not talk about end of days..we wouldnt know anyway…

    Deception. God bless and thanks so much for sharing everything you know. Annalene

  4. Thanks Rebecca! You are so right my friend, even many of our so-called brothers and sisters in Christ seem to avoid the subject as well. What a shame! The good Lord is searching our hearts and looking for those who are willing to stand tall in the time of testing, looking for individuals willing to perform His will as He sees fit, not us. God bless Rebecca!

  5. Hello Annalene! Yes it’s true, all around the world I presume. We who believe and understand must stand firm in our beliefs and in our faith. God bless my friend!

  6. I agree it is totally true…..people are so consumed with worldly things. Only the power of God can wake them from their sleep, please lets pray for them.

  7. So true are your words Gordon, sad to say. The warning signs are all around us, and like you said this is nothing of what’s yet to come. Our world is changing rapidly just as the Scriptures predicted eons ago. You would think people would take notice of all the changes, changes in everything. And none of it good. The planet is dying – nature itself is revolting, nations are rebelling and causing wars, people are possessed into thinking murder and killing is essential to our own existence (survival of the fittest), scientist are experimenting with stuff they shouldn’t be considering let alone messing with, like uniting animal and human DNA to see what they get…dah!, messing with powers they shouldn’t be tampering with, trying to find “the god particle of the big bang” with this LHC (Cern) machine, and this is just a few things that’s buried (unless you look) from the public. Mention any of this to people and they laugh at you and call you crazy, ‘you’re reading too many sci-fi articles’, ‘seeing too many movies, it’s all make believe’, ‘the world will continue as always’, ‘everything will fix itself soon enough’, ‘you need to elevate your conscious self for you are a god’.. really… I’m not making this up, sad to say. The list is endless of the wrong directions people are led to think/believe. This planet as a whole is taking/has taken a wrong turn… I want to shout “STOP, I’d like to turn around now.” But we’re here for a higher purpose, Our Good Lord wants us to stay in tune with Him and to continue to reach people. Prophecy needs to be fulfilled. So, if ‘crazy’ is my label so be it.

    People are blinded to facts and authentic, proven to be true biblical stories and predictions. Both there to show us what happens when one deviates from God’s principal rule and moral code. Nothing is new under the sun, history repeats itself and if we don’t learn from it we are opt to repeat it. People are not taught history or learning from it and so we keep repeating it, the definition of insanity!
    Main street media either sugar coats everything, ’cause everyone wants to ‘feel good’ and not deal with the realities of what’s truly going on or infusing their own opinion and making matters worst. Even our churches, mentions the goodness of God without mentioning He is also judge. All in the name of progress. Time is progressing alright and soon its pinnacle will be reached and we all will be seeing the rightful owner and King appearing and taking us “crazy” saints home.

    If only people would truly seek God while there is still time to do so. He has all the answers, He doesn’t do anything without informing us first of what will occur, nothing is left to chance, it’s all in His Holy manual. If we only turn to Him in repentance and with sincerity of heart, as individuals and as a nation. But the world’s enticements are more alluring then an ‘ancient book’, Woe! to man for neglecting, ignoring, refusing the God of the Universe. Soon enough they will see the err of their ways.
    Dear Heavenly Father, help us all to see more clearly, anoint our eyes to see truth and to keep You close to our hearts. Help us not to give in to temptation and follow the crowd but to come out of it, make us stronger to continue to do Thy will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
    Keep reaching people Gordon with your posts and thank you my friend for letting me state my two bits. I try to make it short but it doesn’t always work out that way. Peace be with you, God bless us all.

  8. Thanks for your comment SweetJava and Amen to your prayer!

    The world is truly blinded to the truth and under the spell of the evil one. The signs are all around us each and everyday, yet they still cannot see, they still do not believe!

    What is now coming upon this world and what will soon come upon the world will test our faith as believers in Jesus Christ. As children of the living God of the universe, we shall stand tall in a time of great distress upon the earth. This will be a sign from God, that we are His and He is ours! I believe that because of this, many will repent and accept the Lord, however, many, many more will not. Let us pray that their eyes are opened and their hearts softened to the truth, as you have also prayed for SweetJava.

    God bless SweetJava, may the good Lord continue to give you wisdom, insight, and clarity!

  9. Very true are your words, my friend…We haven’t seen anything yet… We are and will be illustrating our faith to people, some will heed and others not. Ours is only to sow the seed, Our Father in Heaven does the rest. He will fortify us in times we needed most and always. He is in us, in our actions and in our hearts and mind, giving testimony of Himself. It’s Jesus who gives us His Spirit. All the glory goes to Him.

    Thank you Gordon for your prayers as well, always needed as we forge on. The war has been won, yet the battle continues… Just a little longer till prophecy has been fulfill… Let’s hold on to the only source of strength and power – His love. God Bless!
