Breaking Away

And God said to Noah, "The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold I will destroy them with the earth." —Genesis 6:13

In the days before the flood, mankind turned from God and lived as though He did not exist. Morals failed. Men's minds were corrupted and they embraced abnormal sexual activity. Violence covered the face of the earth and men began living like animals. And it was upon these conditions that God looked and said, "My Spirit will not always strive with man" (Genesis 6: 3). 

You see, the time eventually comes when God's patience is exhausted. 

We, too, live in a world filled with violence and corruption. It is only a matter of time before God again says, "That's it." Matthew 24: 37 tells us, "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be at the coming of the Son of God." As He did the first time, God will tell His people, "Come on into the ark." Thank God He has provided that place of refuge for us. That ark today is Jesus Christ. 

YOU ARE EITHER A PART OF THE SYSTEM THAT IS 

CORRUPTING THE WORLD AND DRAGGING IT UNDER, 

OR YOU ARE A PART OF THE SYSTEM THAT WILL FLOAT OVER IT 

WHEN IT FALLS.

God has established absolute standards of righteousness, and we must submit ourselves to His authority, because Jesus is coming very soon to judge the world in righteousness. 

Father, may we heed those things which we have heard, lest we 

drift away from them. Help us make a definite, decisive 

break from this corrupt world, that we might 

stand and be numbered with those 

who love and serve You. 

In Jesus' name, amen.
