But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. —Matthew 24:37
In the days of Noah, God saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of man's heart was evil continually. It is not hard to make a comparison to today. Our world is full of violence and corruption. Television and movie industries pollute the minds of people until the thoughts and the imagination of man's heart is only evil continually. And just as in the days of Noah, people eat and drink, marry, and carry on their business without thought to the soon coming of the Lord.
The world can't continue on much longer the way things are, spiraling ever downward.
A day of reckoning approaches, and nothing in the world's arsenal can save us. Education won't save us. Neither will science. The government won't. The United Nations won't. Not even Green Peace can save our planet. The only sure hope for the future is the return of Jesus Christ. He alone has the power to save and deliver.
As we see the deteriorating conditions of the world around us, we shouldn't get discouraged. Instead, we should be motivated. We need to rise to the challenge and live lives that are godly, righteous, and holy, as we wait for the return of our Lord.
Father, as we look at the world today, we see the same conditions that existed in the days of Noah, and we realize that judgment is not far off. May we humble ourselves, pray, and seek Your face, and may we turn away from all wickedness. In Jesus' name, amen.
