“Living” Proof: We are Living in the Days of Noah
A familiar phrase used in Bible prophecy is the term “Days of Noah.” Jesus warned, “For as in the days of Noah before the flood, they were eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the very day Noah entered the ark. And they did not know or understand until the flood came and swept them all away-so will be the coming of the Son of Man (Matthew 24: 38-39.)” This illustration is used to show mankind what signs they must look for upon Christ return. The book of Genesis records that before flooding the Earth, the Lord saw that the wickedness of men was great, and that every intent of the thoughts of men’s heart was continually evil. This description can easily be applied to the current times we are living in. From all corners of the Earth, various societies can hear the bloodthirsty hearts of the terrorist beating to the same deadly drum. Are there more clues that allude to the fact that we are truly indeed living in the Days of Noah? Could there have been more going on besides the wickedness the Lord witnessed?
According to the Book of Jasher, there was certainly something else was happening. The book of Jasher is a historical book referenced in Joshua Chapter 10 Verse 13 and 2nd Samuel Chapter 1 Verse 18 verse of the day. It describes that during the Days of Noah:
“After the fallen angels went into the daughters of men, the sons of men taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order to provoke the Lord. God saw the earth was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals (Jasher 4:18.)”
It may seem strange that over four thousand years ago, the mixture of species was achievable during the times of Noah. The fallen angels had the capability and understanding to do such things as genetic mixing. It is common knowledge that scientist perform genetic manipulation on different animals. That’s nothing new. However, in the last couple of years, scientists have crossed the dangerous line of creating laboratory animals with human DNA-developing mice and sheep with human livers, hearts, and brains. According to scientist, Paul Elias, “The biological co-mingling of animal and human is now evolving into even more exotic and unsettling mixes of species.”
In addition, another strong indication that we are truly living in of the Days of Noah is the parallel between the men of Noah’s day versus the men during our time. For the men in Noah’s time clearly understood a flood would soon come, yet instead of repenting-they chose evil over good. By comparison, the men during our times do not see the need to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior. Sadly, they find it more important to question the validity of Christ’s return.
With the recent London homicide bombings on July 7th, 2005, most countries with the exception of the United Kingdom went on with business as usual. Just as everyone went about his or her normal lives when Noah continued to build the ark, people go about their lives ignoring the clear signs of Christ’s return. They refuse to hearken to the truth that is deeply written on their heart, opting instead to follow their own sin.
Before the flood came, people deemed Noah a lunatic and did not incline their ears to his warnings. How ironic is it that Christians are called heretics for sounding the familiar trumpet on Christ impending arrival? He is returning. My only desire is that you ask yourself a question: Do you wish to have the same fate as the people who were left outside the ark when God sealed the doors shut? Make a decision.
