How do we know for sure we are living in the Last Days before the return of Jesus Christ? A couple things stand out in my mind on this topic that you should know. First indicator Jesus gave us can be found in Mat 24:37-39. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
More than ever today there is a great deal of focus put on these three things. Eating, drinking, and given in marriage. Today we are bombarded with food commercials and restaurants on every corner. From McDonald’s, to Burger King, from Pizza Hut, to Poppa Johns, from Robert Irvine, to Bobby Flay. Entire TV networks are dedicated to this fact, like the Food Network, and the Cooking Channel.
Jesus, the creator of past, present, and future, knew what was coming down humanity’s road and gave us these key warnings of the time of the end. Never before has drinking been so hyped up as it is today. We even have beer commercials during one of the biggest sporting events of our time, the super bowl.
Today there is a huge magnifying glass put on marriage. People spend thousand of dollars to go all out on that special day, and many times its on television for the world to see. Jesus never said what kind of marriage would be on display in the last days, but it seems clear to us today he was talking about gay marriage too.
What else was going on in the days of Noah? People were so filled with themselves that they didn’t even think about God. Gen 6:11. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth. And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me.
Once again the earth is full of violence as in the days of Noah. From movies to video games, from sports to flaming on the internet. Day in and day out its another war or another tragedy in the news. And because the human race has drifted so far from God, the price will be high as it was then. We are about to see a new flood upon the earth, but this time it wont be water to save the righteous. Rev 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. We seen angels of God being sent to Sodom right before the city went up in fire. There are cities that will burn in our day and time according to the scriptures, and the result wont be thousands of lives taken, but one third of the human race will be destroyed by nuclear fires that will never go out in the hearts and minds of the human population. Monuments will be raised, and a day set aside to remember those that have fallen.
These are some of the key points happening now, and things yet to be before the return of Jesus to save his people from the darkness on earth today. These are dark days indeed, but darker days are ahead of us still before the day dawns and we see him as he is.
Isa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.
