Jesus said the days of His second coming would be like the days of Noah.
“For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:37
The Flood narrative is an Old Testament account that parallels the return of Jesus. Does this include what people are doing prior to the flood? Does this even include parallels between the number of days of Noah’s Flood when God first poured out His wrath on an unrepentant world and the “end times” wrath? Does God’s Word tell us plainly how long the Wrath of God lasts, and will it be a surprise to almost everyone?
The timing (when and how long it will last) of the wrathof God being poured out an unrepentant world is revealed in many Scriptures. Nelson covers them all in this presentation. The following three should stimulate your interest to watch and learn from Nelson’s video.
“But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.” Romans 2:5
“But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.) By no means! For then how could God judge the world?” Romans 3:5-6
“The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.” 2 Peter 3:9-10
The first is God’s judgement of the world with the worldwide flood of Noah’s day.
Uniformitarian geology introduced by Hutton and Lyell in the 19th century is coming under increasing criticism due to the prevalent evidence in the geological record of catastrophism. For example, uniformitarian scientists have several difficulties explaining passive margin uplift. This is especially the case with the Great Escarpment that rims southern Africa. The erosional profile of the Great Escarpment does not fit uniformitarian expectations. However, it fits very well the catastrophic erosion of the Sheet Flow phase of the Recessive stage of the Flood. As well, the best explanation for the billions of dead things all over the world including fossil fuels is the worldwide flood of Noah’s Day which represented the judgement of God on a wicked world.
Jesus tells us that prior to His second coming the world will be lawless just as it was in Noah’s day and that scoffers will not countenance God destroyed mankind with the worldwide flood of Noah’s day. This is exactly the situation we have in the world today. Further evidence we are living in the prophesied “last days” before Jesus return.
“Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. They were eating and drinking and marrying and being given in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” Luke 17:24
“you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Saviour through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.” 2 Peter 3:2-6
The second is God’s judgement of the post flood population at the Tower of Babel when He confused their language and created the nations that exist today.
The new attraction to be built at the Ark Encounter site, “The Tower of Babel” will “tackle the racism issue” by helping visitors “understand how genetics research and the Bible confirm the origin of all people groups around the world.
“Now the whole earth had one language and the same words... and they said to one another, … come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.” Genesis 11:1, 4-
On the fifth anniversary of the Ark Encounter, which features a 510-foot-long wooden Noah’s ark, founder Ken Ham has announced the expansion of the Bible-themed attraction in Kentucky by building a Tower of Babel attraction on the park’s grounds.
“Next year, we will start fundraising for a Tower of Babel attraction that we hope to open in three or four years, where among other things we will help people understand what genetics research and the Bible say about the origin of all the people groups around the world,” Ham, the CEO and founder of the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum, says on the website of the Answers in Genesis ministry.
CNN’s Don Lemon reacts to the Vatican declaring that God cannot bless same-sex unions with “God is not about hindering people or even judging people.”
Where does Lemon get his ideas about God? It certainly is not God’s Word. God is indeed a judge. And as for the “hindering” comment, I’d just have Mr. Lemon refer to the book of Genesis when God floods the entire earth because everyone acted wickedly 24/7. If a devastating flood that kills every living thing on earth except those on Noah’s ark isn’t “hindering” in the affairs of man, I don’t know what is.
The following Scriptures are just a smattering of the plentiful verses throughout both the Old and New Testament testifying to the fact that God is indeed a judge
“Shall not the Judge of all the earth deal justly?” – Genesis 18:25
“The Lord will judge the ends of the earth” – 1 Samuel 2:10
“Can anyone teach God knowledge, In that He judges those on high?” – Job 21:22
“The Lord judges the peoples” – Psalm 7:8
“God is a righteous Judge” – Psalm 7:11
“God is the Judge” – Psalm 75:7
“For the Lord will judge His people” – Psalm 135:14
“For the Lord is our Judge” – Isaiah 33:22
“He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.” – John 3:18
“He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed, having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead.” – Acts 17:31
“Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead” – 2 Timothy 4:1
We will seen more of this type of man-centered, modern theology purporting to be Christian confidently presenting itself with increased frequency. For example, an openly gay “pastor” recently went viral for claiming Jesus was a racist. This person with the title ‘pastor’ took the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who lived a perfect and sinless life and sacrificed himself on the cross for his people, and reduced him to just another sinner in need of saving.
In the “woke” world we are now living in, even basic truths of the Bible will be abandoned by many because the truth of God’s word simply doesn’t align with the “woke” mantra we are seeing play out today.
“I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished.But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.” 2 Peter 3:2-7
Jonathan Cahn shares how God’s judgement on America was prophesied in the Scriptures. The timing is incredible particularly concerning what has and is happening to New York. You will be encouraged and challenged as never before how God is in control of all that happens on His planet. Also, Jonathan stresses the fact that God wants to use each one of us for His purposes but we need to repent and ask Him for guidance.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and the one who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8
A sober prophetic message from Jonathan Cahn to President Biden. It testifies that God’s judgement will be poured out on America in increasing intensity unless the nation repents of its rejection of God’s values. Jonathan’s message to Christians: it is time for our light to shine in the darkness, to live lives unhindered, uncompromised, unbound, bold, all out for Jesus regardless of the cost. Will you say YES to JESUS?
An urgent message for 2021 from Jonathan Cahn. As my followers know I met Jonathan Cahn in Jerusalem many years ago now. We were both staying at the Leonardo Hotel. I was there for The Gathering, 3000 Christians gathering in Jerusalem to pray for and support Israel. There were no speakers just praise and worship and people spoke as God spoke to them. All realised that prayer is a wonderful privilege and that God hears and answers prayer. We were there to show our support for Israel to hear from God about the way forward.
It was at breakfast that I met Jonathan. I was ordering an omelette and a voice behind me said, I will have one of those too. I looked around and was surprised to see Jonathan Cahn. I recognised him, as I had read his best selling book, The Harbinger and had watched some YouTube videos of him being interviewed on well known Christian TV shows. I said, Jonathan Cahn and he said, Yes that’s right. I said, Are you here for a conference and he said no, I am on vacation with my family. In fact, I have been ill and am recuperating. I went back to my seat, and I immediately asked God what was the reason why I had met Jonathan in that way. I have had enough God ordained meetings to realise that it was unlikely this was a coincidence. The Holy Spirit responded just as quickly that I should go and share with Jonathan about The Gathering that was taking place in the main Convention Centre in Jerusalem opposite the Knesset (Israel’s House of Parliament). Initially, I resisted as Jonathan was with his family and I thought it would be rude to interrupt them. However, I knew I would be disobeying God if I did not so I went over to his table and apologised for interrupting them but I said I believed the Holy Spirit wanted me to give Jonathan a message. I then asked Jonathan if he knew of The Gathering of Christians that was taking place in the Convention Centre. He said, no he did not and was surprised when I told him there were 3000 Christians at the gathering so many they could not all fit into the main Convention Center and they had to use two additional rooms to take the overflow. He was startled that there were no speakers at the conference but the real bombshell for him was that over half the Christians attending The Gathering were Chinese. No way, was Jonathan’s initial response. He had no idea that so many Chinese Christians would want to support Israel in this way. Moreover, Jonathan would have been more surprised if he had attended the meeting to see these Chinese Christians in worship, either on their feet with hands raised or on the floor weeping. Jonathan and I exchanged cards and I went back to finish my breakfast.
Jonathan is God’s messenger for the USA and this message is timely as America moves further away from God with the election of Joe Biden as President, it is now beyond redemption and faces escalating judgement by God.
Many of USA Teenagers believe that the abortion issue is our greatest Human Rights issue of the 21st Century with no exceptions. Bar None!
For those that read my previous post just days ago – Abortion is a National Sin. In it, I said, that unless nations repent of this heinous sin they cannot expect God to lift His hand of judgement from them. Hopefully, this move amongst young people in the USA will cause Trump to take action to overturn the Roe vs Wade Supreme Courts decision. Let’s pray that this will be the case.
All across the USA teenagers are inspired by Life. These kids grew up seeing photos of their younger siblings in 4-D ultrasounds and listening to baby brother or sister’s heartbeat at 12 weeks inside of their mom. They understand that their mom is carrying a child not a lump of tissues but a tiny human being.
Since 1973, when Roe V. Wade passed, 60 million American children have been denied the right to life. That equates to 1 child in 4 is missing from this current Gen Z generation due to abortion. Friends! Teachers! Scientists! Doctors! Artists! Athletes! Have all been terminated in the womb.
One bold and beautiful fashion brand is promoting all life from the womb to the tomb, with tees and beach bags that message “Life is Amazing” & “Babes Supporting Babes”.Culture of Life 1972 (COL1972) Fashion Brand has quickly grown to be a leader in the Pop-Culture for Life. Gen Z can not get enough of this new product, that boasts “Life is always in Style” and “Let’s Party Like It’s 1972.” There is a VIP list for those who wish to be included in new collections before they launch. There is a waiting list to become an Affiliate for the brand.
COL1972 calls their followers and customers aptly, their Life Tribe, winning others to the side of life every day with their fun fashionable and friendly clothing.
The best part is that 100% of the profits give back to women and children in crisis.
“Pop-culture has proudly glamorised the Culture of Death with messaging that abortion is empowering and even fun. Our brand and tribe rejects that message and believe that a Culture of Life must be promoted for the health of our children and nation.” – Gen Z COL1972 Co-founder Vittoria D’Addesi
The waves of earthquakes are rocking the centre of the U.S. and the sudden awakening of several volcanoes around the world may be a sign of the pre-Messiah shake-up predicted by the prophets. At the same time, several far more mild earthquakes in Israel seem to embody the Biblical concept of God’s mercy being aroused by Man’s actions.
The earth seems to be waking up as seismic activity is being reported around the globe. Last month, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook Idaho, generating a multitude of avalanches. The quake was the largest in the region since a 6.9 quake hit in 1983. There have been 238 earthquakes in Idaho in the last week according to the U.S. Geological Survey website. Five of those have been substantial in size rating 4.0 to 6.5. Idaho isn’t new to experiencing earthquakes.
Two weeks before Idaho felt the earth move, Salt Lake City, Utah, approximately 340 miles away from the Idaho epicentre, was hit by a 5.7 magnitude earthquake. Since that earthquake, there have been 886 smaller earthquakes and aftershocks in the Salt Lake area. The belly of the country is clearly rumbling as the University of Utah Seismograph Station mapped a total of 980 tremors throughout Idaho, Utah and Wyoming since March 18
An article in Discoverexplained the epidemic of earthquakes as being caused by the continent “stretching,” a process described in German as “horst and graben.”
“As North America continues to stretch across the Basin and Range, these faults can generate earthquakes as the valleys continue to drop,” the article explained. “Both of the earthquakes that happened in Nevada and Utah recently were on one of the normal faults that bounded a valley.
VOLCANOES AROUND THE WORLD
But it is not just the central U.S. that is experiencing a seismic awakening. Since January 21, the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland has experienced more than 8,000 earthquakes and about 10 centimetres of land uplift due to magma intrusions underground. Geologists believe the volcanic systems in the region become active about once every thousand years. The last time this region experienced volcanic activity was 800 years ago. Beginning in the tenth century, the volcanically volatile period lasted for 300 years.
The region is about 30 miles southwest of Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, but is only nine miles away from Iceland’s international airport. A major eruption could shut down travel for all of Iceland as well as endanger the nearby town of Grindavik as well as the Blue Lagoon, a popular tourist destination. There is also a nearby geothermal power-plant which could be endangered by volcanic activity.
As if that wasn’t enough, the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia exploded on Friday. Though two relatively small eruptions were recorded, the volcano is a hotspot and cause for concern. In 188, a Krakatoa eruption had one of the highest death tolls of any volcanic eruption, killing more than 36,000 people. The most recent eruption at the site was in 2018, generating a tsunami and killing 437 people.
Volcanoes are explicitly mentioned in the Bible as one of the “end times” signs as God shakes all that can be shaken as a wake up call that He exists and that He judges unrighteous nations.. The following Scripture reveals how God refines His own people.
And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God.’ Zechariah 13:9
“Consecrate a fast, Call a sacred assembly; Gather the elders And all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, And cry out to the Lord….Now therefore, says the LORD, ‘Turn to Me with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.’ So rend your hearts and not your garments; return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness; and He relents from doing harm. Who knows if He will turn and relent, and leave a blessing behind Him… Then the Lord will be zealous for His land, and pity His people. The Lord will answer and say to His people, “Behold, I will send you grain and new wine and oil, and you will be satisfied by them; I will no longer make you a reproach among the nations.” Joel 1:14, 2:12-14, 18-19
“Do you want to be an overcomer? Today is the day to decide and begin to follow God’s instructions. If we repent, we have hope that He may relent from the judgement we deserve as a nation—continuing to murder children in the womb, sanctifying same sex marriage, taking the Word away from our children, replacing it with lies about their gender. (That is just the beginning of a long list you and I could add to). It’s time to repent, personally and corporately— as a local church, a community, a state, a nation. Our forefathers knew how to do this. Where is the call for this spiritual solution for a pandemic that has spiritual roots? Even as we wait for national leaders in the church and government to call for repentance, join me in using this time to continue to repent, to pursue His purity. He calls us to be ZEALOUS to repent. (Revelation 3:19).
As you dine with Him, His Holy Spirit will support you to examine old sin patterns. Just ask Him where to begin. At any point you can exercise your free will to discard that pattern, that false filter, that stronghold, change your thinking, replace it with His Word. As you submit to His love and authority He will lead you as the Good Shepherd beside still waters, restoring your soul, leading you in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. He calls you and me to be holy just as He is holy.”
As we begin to repent, JOY will surface. This JOY will be a great witness to bring others into the Kingdom, those currently afraid and lost given the pandemic. . The joyful light in our eyes and in our voice will be a beacon: Proverbs 17: 22: ” A merry heart does good, like medicine, But a broken spirit dries the bones.” Proverbs 12: 25 ” Anxiety in the heart of man causes depression, But a good word makes it glad.” Proverbs 15: 13: ” A merry heart makes a cheerful countenance, But by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.”
Does the Bible reveal when the wrath of God will be poured out in the last days prior to Jesus return to earth? Yes! it does, and my friend Nelson Walters does a great job of revealing to you the many prophetic Scriptures that reveal when God pours out His wrath on an unrepentant, rebellious world.
First, the Rapture of His Saints followed immediately by the wrath of God poured out with the Trumpet and Bowl judgements contained in the Seven Sealed Scroll which Jesus opens as recorded by John in Revelation 5 & 6.
