“As it was in the days of Noah. So shall it be when The Son of Man returns”. (Mt. 24:37)
What was it like in the days of Noah? Let’s take a look also at the conditions during the time of Elijah and how we compare in our day.
Evil thoughts ALL the time, genetic manipulation, angelic (spiritual) unions with human kind. (Gen. 6:1 -5)
They also were just doing life as Jesus states eating and drinking and given in marriage, life as normal. Noah preached “Righteousness” (2Pet. 2:5) for 120 years while he built the ark, and The Lord rescued/delivered him from the judgement.
Ahab & Jezebel ruled with evil intentions at every aspect of society. And imposed demonic worship in every quarter. Baalism/Asherah. (1Ki. 18)
Elijah opposed the prophets of Baal/Asherah; he declared a return to true devotion and worship through “Repentance” to return to The Lord God and “Righteousness” was manifested through his stance and opposition. God Almighty redeemed him with a chariot of fire into the heavens.
Behold I Shall send My Messenger before me to “prepare the WAY of the coming of The Lord“. (Is. 40:3/Mal. 3:1)
John the Baptist
John went about Judea preaching Righteousness and Repentance. (Mt.14:3-12/Lk. 3:1-8/Mk. 1:1-8) With a boldness and faith that ended up with him being beheaded by the hands of Herod & Herodias; his brothers wife. (Jezebel& Ahab)
Jesus indicated that John indeed was Elijah that had come before Him. Yet, as many prophetic declarations attest, this prophetic WORD will yet be fulfilled again to completion. (See Post “The TWO Faithful Witnesses”). John a proto-type of the New covenant believer sets the stage for “The Final Countdown“.
The Church, The Bride of Messiah. In the power and spirit of Elijah! (Lk. 1:17&Mal. 4:5)
We see the fig tree mentioned in Mathew 24:32 that as the “…twigs get tender and its leaves come out…” Jesus indicates this right before His proclamation of as it was in Noah’s day. So we “see”; Israel (the fig tree); the prophetic symbol of “The End Times”, the spirits of Jezebel which is (Ishtar/Asherah/Semiramis “Babylon: Mother of Harlots”) & Baalism which is (Molech/Marduk/Nimrod “Post flood” 1 world ruler) rising in every fabric of societal living; genetic manipulation across plants and animals, spiritism; embodied spiritual unions with demonic forces are once again sweeping across planet earth.
It is at this time for this very hour. That as described by the prophet Joel “in the last days I will POUR OUT my Spirit….says THE LORD”!
The Church MUST and will even if it is a remnant of those that have confessed and professed their devotion to The Messiah: Jesus of Nazareth make a stand! And in BOLDNESS Stand Firm (Eph. 6) in His Mighty Power and declare the message of Noah, Elijah, and John the Baptist Righteousness & true Repentance. To “Prepare the Way” for the coming of The Lord. The clock IS ticking ever closer as we come to that divine moment…tic toc tic toc…
Shall we be delivered and redeemed from “The Judgement” as Noah and Elijah were, or shall we as John lose our heads for our FAITH? That just might depend on how we respond to HIS calling! We must in TRUTH be made ready.
Dearest friend, My sincere hope and desire is that you would know deep in your heart how much God loves you and that you would simply and truthfully accept the Free gift that He offers; Salvation through the atoning sacrificial Blood of His offering; His Son Jesus (Yeshua). Today is the Day of Salvation.
God Bless You and Keep You until the Day of His appearing.
