As it was in the Days of Noah

As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man (Matt 24:37). The time leading up to the Great Flood was a lot like our time today in that it was characterized by a deliberate and escalating disregard for the ways of God. Finally it says in Gen. 6:5: “the Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time”.

What Day Is This?
If you plot the life spans of the patriarchs in Genesis 5, you’ll discover it was 1656 years from Adam’s creation to the Great Flood. During that time mankind had degenerated from human beings created in the very image of God who walked and talked with Him to a race whose thoughts and actions were totally depraved and bent only on evil (Gen. 6:5).

It’s been about 1977 years since man was first given the choice to be re-created by events at the Cross (2 Cor 5:17) but most of today’s world has declined. As a result, a single look around us is all that’s needed to see that from a spiritual and moral perspective life today is becoming pretty much “as it was in the days of Noah”.

A Hook in the Jaw…

There is a perfect economic storm rising in Russia.
Seventy percent of the Russian economy is dependent upon oil. In order for the Russian economy to break even they need to be able to sell oil at $109 per barrel. Right now the price is $59 per barrel. Despite Putin recently winning: Russian Man of the Year for the 15th straight year, he is in big trouble.
The one major failing of Putin since he came to power is that he promised the Russian people he would diversify the Russian economy and wean them off their over reliance on oil. He has failed to do so and this failure is now coming back to haunt him.
Now, because of competition between OPEC oil producers in the Middle East and the United States over American Shale production, OPEC has increased the amount of oil produced each day and reduced the price of the oil per barrel. Their intention is to flood the oil market with really cheap oil and therefore kill off the U.S. shale market, which has considerably higher costs per barrel in terms of production. This has crushed the Russian oil price index.

11) When the sixth seal is broken world leaders will finally admit that the great day of his (Jesus’) wrath has come (Rev. 6:12-17).

Jesus will break the first five seals before He breaks the sixth seal---After the first five seals are broken, world leaders will admit that the Tribulation Period has started. The day of wrath is also the great day of the Lord and also the Tribulation Period. It is a day when mighty men will cry bitterly (Zeph. 1:14-15).

The word translated “stars” can also be translated meteors. Most stars are bigger than the earth. Not many, if any, stars could fall on the earth without decimating it. “Stars” could refer to meteors or missiles.

“The heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled up” is an accurate description of what nuclear weapons do. They drive the wind up and out. Then it rolls up and collapses back in.

1) Jesus addressed the sequence of events in the Book of Revelation.

He divided the sequence of events into three parts when He said, “Write the things which thou hast seen (record past things), and the things which are (record present things), and the things which shall be hereafter” (record future things ) (Rev. 1:19).

Past Things---“The things which thou hast seen” are past things. John used past tense terminology about himself – I was, I heard (Rev. 1:10); I turned, I saw (Rev. 1:12); I saw, I fell (Rev. 1:17); (Chapter one records John’s past vision of the resurrected Jesus).
