As It Was In The Days Of Noah

Jesus warned the disciples about end time religious deception… about wars, famines, pestilences and earthquakes… and then He added…

“As It Was In The Days Of Noah”

Privately to His disciples, Christ explained:

“And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” (Matthew 24:3)

Jesus warned them against religious deception… about wars and rumours of wars, nations rising against nation, about famines, pestilences and earthquakes… ending this section by saying that;

“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” (Matthew 24:4-14)

What Jesus warned them about were upcoming events. When the religious leaders of the day also asked Christ about the timing of the coming of His kingdom, He gave them a very different answer!

We must keep in mind that the religious leaders were always trying to trap Christ so that they could accuse Him before the Romans and get rid of Him. They saw Him as a threat to their leadership position.

The interesting point is that He then said to His disciples, apparently in the presence of the Pharisees…

And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.

Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;

But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)

In other words, to most of those alive at the time of the end of this age, the end would be sudden – and total - just as it was back in Noah’s time, and in Sodom and Gomorrah!

But people had been warned. Noah was around 100 years building the ark. He was a preacher of righteousness. God always warns.

God had His prophets warn both ancient Israel and Judah of their impending destruction but they would not listen - because all of mankind has been deceived by the god of this world, Satan the devil!

Right now, the warning is still available on several websites. We still have the warning given by Jesus Christ to His end time Apostle.

The Days Of Noah?

So what was life like just before the flood? Why did God destroy everything, except Noah and his family?

“And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart…

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; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.” (Genesis 6:5-6, 11-13)

Dispelling The Myth

Education in our modern world aggressively promotes a totally materialistic view from evolution. According to this theory, man “emerged” in the dim and distant past from a monkey, shaking off the earlier green slime by a series of lucky mutations, to gradually become more and more “human”. His primitive way of life changing gradually over millions of years, to culminate in our “wonderful” society today!

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Man was created, a perfect physical/mental specimen. Since then, mankind has been steadily suffering detrimental mutations from what God created – DE-volution both physically and mentally – to end with this civilisation today, the final “de-generation”.

They might have had different technology pre-flood, but think: Our world today and its technology has all come about in the last 200 or so years.

The pre-flood era lasted for 1656 years. Back in pre-flood times people lived for around 900 years. They all spoke the same language. They were physically and mentally superior to us. Note what God said about people just after the flood, when they were building the tower of Babel:

“Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.” (Genesis 11:6)

Remember what God said about their way of life…

…every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”

The earth also was corrupt before God”

…the earth was filled with violence.”

The whole earth itself was corrupt… the animals were corrupt…

“I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air;” (Genesis 6:7)

Had they been dabbling with genetic engineering?

The land, the animals and the people were corrupt – and the world was full of violence. Sounds a lot like our world today!

Corrupt Minds

Looking at today’s politically correct world, we can start to understand how corrupt things are. God created man, then He created woman. Simple. Two sexes. Not so today. Apparently people can now choose their own sex – even children as young as just three years old. Criticize the “politically correct brigade” at your peril, as the following entertainer soon found out.

“Mario Lopez is feeling the wrath of the outrage brigade after suggesting that kids as young as three years-old shouldn’t be deciding their own gender. He was instantly pronounced ‘dead’ by those for whom PC culture is a religion. The entertainer was forced to apologize on Wednesday, telling NBC his comments were ‘ignorant and insensitive’.” ( rt.com)

Pornography: Corrupting Sex

The saying goes that our bodies are what we eat. On that basis, we will become mentally what we allow into our minds!

“Porn website visitors dominate that of Netflix, Amazon and Twitter combined, a new survey has revealed. According to the infographic by new porn website Paint Bottle, around 30% of all data transferred across the Internet is porn, the Huffington Post reported.” ( dnaindia.com)

Pornography: Corrupting Minds

Child trafficking is going on - and as the investigation into Jeffrey Epstein appears to reveal, at the highest levels of society!

Why? The following article provides the link;

“Given the ever-growing body of research, it can no longer be denied that repeated porn exposure has a tangible effect on consumers, and is connected to declining relationship satisfaction as well as various forms of exploitation. This isn’t a moral argument, it’s simply something to consider given the facts. There isn’t pornography over here, and trafficking over there… they’re interlinked.” ( brainheartworld.org)

With A Perverted Mind, Anything Goes!

Now its “acceptable” for your daughter to be advised to get a job in the sex industry as a prostitute, according to this politician.

“A Liberal Democrat councillor said schools could suggest prostitution as a career choice for pupils, at a party conference. Dennis Parsons, chairman of the Cheltenham Lib Dems, made the off-hand suggestion at a special session in Brighton on sex work.

The father-of-five said school career advisors are currently not allowed to mention prostitution as a line of work, then added: ‘Why shouldn’t they?’ He also compared prostitution to accountancy in a debate to combat the stigma attached to sex work. Mr Parsons said: ‘The fact that we are asking “should we seek to prevent people entering sex work?” is part of the problem.’

‘You wouldn’t ask the question “should we prevent people becoming accountants?” You’d just take it for granted’.” ( metro.co.uk)

Corrupt Science

The genetic engineering craze goes on and on. Having genetically modified much of the food we eat, now we start on the animal world!

“Scientists have successfully created the world’s first human-monkey embryo, paving the way towards using animals for human organ transplants. The experiment was conducted in China to avoid legal issues. If left to its own devices, the embryo would have grown into a monkey with human cells. However, in keeping with ethical standards, the scientists stopped the process long before the embryo was able to develop a central nervous system.

Still, the team had to travel to China to conduct the procedure, as it was in violation of Spanish law. Estrella Núñez, who collaborated on the project, told El Pais that ‘the results are very promising,’ stating that the experiment was a necessary first step towards developing human organs in animals that could be used in transplants.” ( rt.com)

Corrupt Food

According to some, eating meat is unethical, ecologically selfish and unsustainable. “ It’s wrong to eat meat” they cry, “eat vegetables”.

“Plant-based burger ‘Opens a New Window’ makers say their burgers are better for the planet than beef burgers. But are they better for their consumers’ health? The Meatless Farm claims its products are ‘almost indistinguishable from meat in terms of taste and texture’ and are 100 percent plant-based, which is basically the same thing that Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods say about their burgers.

“The trick to all of these meatless burgers is they want them to taste like real meat in order to convert traditional meat-eaters.

When they do that, they add processed chemicals to them, they add high sodium content to them because if something doesn’t taste salty, it doesn’t taste like real meat. From a nutritional aspect: this is still an indulgence. This is a processed food. This is a junk food. It just happens to be a vegetarian or vegan junk food.( foxbusiness.com)

Corrupt Religion

It is hard to comment on the following article – it is so way off the scale. But as it is claimed that the writer is a “leading New Testament scholar” there is one point we need to notice, and that is the conclusion. She calls for… “a ban on all Bible reading until the Lord agrees to revise history to conform to her standards.”

This takes religious corruption to a whole new level.

“A leading New Testament scholar working at Unified Unity Divinity School has published a paper criticizing Jesus for a lack of diversity among the apostles He chose in the gospel accounts. The woman, Dr Diana T Manger, pointed out that Jesus only chose Jewish males, refusing to implement diversity quotas for his group of disciples.

‘Jesus chose all Jewish, cisgendered, able-bodied males: white supremacy, much?’ she said as she presented her paper before a group of progressive scholars who had promised not to disagree with her. ‘It’s obvious that Jesus was a nationalistic, xenophobic, hate-filled fearmonger.’ Dr Manger suggested that Jesus should have chosen more women, more transgender disciples, a disciple in a wheelchair, and at least one woman who is 1/1024th Native American.

Here is what God has to say…

“…this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:
Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits:
Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.” (Isaiah 30:9-11)

‘The sickeningly homogenous group of disciples should have looked more like the Burger King Kid’s Club,’ she said to applause. ‘It really hurts Jesus’s witness that he did not enforce 21st-century diversity quotas on his disciples,’ she said. Manger has called for a ban on all Bible reading until the Lord agrees to revise history to conform to her standards .” ( 12160.info)

Destroy The Family – Destroy The Nation

“Once upon a time, you had meaning. You knew you had meaning because you had a mom and a dad who told you so, a God who loved you, and a community that needed you. With the destruction of the family, the church, and the community, the reasons people have traditionally had for their very existence are in danger of receding into the past.

And the outcome is predictable: isolation, depression, anxiety, despondency, drug abuse, and death. Destroy the family, abandon the community, raze the church to the ground.

An Epidemic Of Violence

“Whether administered by the knife or the gun, the UK and US are both experiencing epidemics of violence. However, the responses are the same on each side of the Atlantic: lots of finger pointing and few actual solutions. In the US, a pair of deadly mass shootings in Texas and Ohio killed more than 30 people over one weekend.

Across the Atlantic, the UK is grappling with an epidemic of its own. A routine traffic stop in London on Wednesday night turned bloody when a driver turned on police officers and allegedly hacked them with a machete, an incident becoming more familiar to the city’s law enforcement officers.” ( rt.com)

Minds – Corrupted By Medical Drugs

“If you want to know the real reason why mass shootings are taking place, this is the ‘inconvenient truth’ the media won’t cover. Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used. The overwhelming evidence points to the single largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes. Those focusing on further firearms bans or magazine restrictions are clearly focusing on the wrong issue and asking the wrong questions…” ( patriotrising.com)

Corrupted Education

“We have raised an entire generation of Americans that have no respect for the law, and now we are reaping what we have sown. All over the nation young people are brazenly flouting the law, obstructing and assaulting law enforcement officers, and committing criminal acts in large groups. I think that ‘lawlessness’ is perhaps the best word to describe what is happening, and many believe that what we have witnessed so far is just the beginning”. ( endoftheamericandream.com)

Corrupted Entertainment - ‘Demented And Evil’

When “entertainment” sinks to this level, it takes violence to a whole new level.

“A controversial movie about privileged vacationers hunting ‘deplorables’ for sport is ruffling feathers more than a month before its scheduled release and after tragic mass shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. ‘The Hunt’ is billed as a satire that follows wealthy thrill-seekers taking a private jet to a five-star resort where they embark on a ‘deeply rewarding’ expedition that involves hunting down and killing designated humans.

DePauw University professor and media critic Jeffrey McCall told Fox News, ‘It says something sad about the state of the “entertainment” industry that this movie ever got conceived and produced. Hollywood clearly thinks it is OK to stereotype so-called deplorables and set them up for a hunt ,’ McCall said.

Political satirist Tim Young said, ‘Why would anyone think it’s a great idea to have a movie about hunting down someone who doesn’t agree with them politically? It’s remarkable to me that the left blames Donald Trump’s rhetoric for violence, then literally spends millions to normalize the killing of people based on politics,’ Young told Fox News.” ( foxnews.com)


“The Hunt involves hunting down and killing designated humans. The violent, gun-toting film revolves around a group of people from predominately Republican states being kidnapped and hunted for sport by liberal elites.

…characters in the film apparently refer to the victims as ‘ deplorables’ - a term that Hillary Clinton infamously dubbed Trump supporters during the 2016 election.” ( dailymail.co.uk)

USA: Destroyed By Civil War?

According to the following article, civil war in the USA is a distinct possibility.

“Renowned geopolitical and financial cycle expert Charles Nenner thinks the probability for war and civil unrest is coming around in an intense cycle not seen for decades. Nenner says, ‘Years ago when we talked about my war cycles, I said I am more worried about internal social war in the United States than outside wars. I think there is a bigger chance in the United States than in Europe. So, there is a cycle of social unrest in the United States, which is 60 years old. So, you go back to what happened in the 1960’s. It could explode, and I think it is going to explode, and there is going to be a major problem’.” ( zerohedge.com)

The 1960’s - Human Nature – Minus Purpose!

Writing back in the 1960’s, Mr Armstrong explained why they were having all of these problems back then. We are now 60 years on and there is yet again an outburst of corruption and violence, but far more serious than back in the 1960’s. What Mr Armstrong wrote back in the 1960’s certainly applies to our world today – a world full of corruption and violence – just as it was in the days of Noah!

“Let’s understand the real basic reason for these present problems. Basically, it is simply human nature. Yet God endowed man with MIND power, capable of recognizing the error of this WAY, if willing. Adam could have obeyed God, resisted Satan and qualified to replace Satan as earth RULER, administering the GOVERNMENT OF GOD. But Adam disobeyed God, succumbed to Satan. His children have done so ever since.

Jesus Christ obeyed God, kept God’s Commandments, resisted Satan, never allowed what we call ‘human nature’ to enter Him. He conquered the devil, and qualified to administer the world-ruling GOVERNMENT OF GOD. Then He ascended to heaven to officially receive this world RULE. The heavens have received Him UNTIL – notice it, Acts 3:19-21, only ‘UNTIL the times of RESTITUTION of all things’ – that is, the RESTORING of what had been taken away – THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD!

That time is almost upon us NOW!

This very outburst of universal VIOLENCE is one of the signs!

As it was in the days of Noah,’ said Jesus, ‘so shall it be,’ just before the days of Christ’s return to RESTORE THE KINGDOM OF GOD, and bring us PEACE! Just before the Flood, there was illicit sex and VIOLENCE! It was not thus sixty years ago (1900’s). IT IS A TIME OF ILLICIT SEX AND VIOLENCE TODAY!

Can’t we see the handwriting on the wall?( The Missing Dimension in Sex - Chapter 12)
