Think it Over - Noah type World end!
Written by Grant Hayman   

* THINK IT OVER. *

* Noah and the Flood *

Noah and his family disappeared from off the face of the earth!

* Humanity without remedy *

With things being so bad with no possible remedy, God decided to start over again. The then, human race had to be brought to a sad end and so the destruction of "every living substance" [Genesis 7:23.] was purposed.

But the following happened -  ....... "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD." [Genesis 6:8.]

Noah found "grace" for the continuing of his earthly existence; but for his and our eternal existence, grace has come by Jesus Christ.

* Grace and World's end. *

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: 
By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God."
[Romans 5:1-2.]

Before God ends this world for the second and final time, the Church (every truly "born again" Christian) like Noah, will disappear from off the face of the Earth! This will usher in God's closing dealings with mankind, because now the world exists only of those who have rejected Christ and God and truth and righteousness. Therefore, there remains only a world of meaness and death! The Church has gone and that means that Christ at large has gone from the earth.

*Eviction of Ungrateful Tenents! *

Now begins Christ's confrontation of man's rejection of him while still living in a world created by Him!

The tenancy is over! The time to vacate his property has come!

The Bible declares that all of natural life upon the earth is a "Grace" from God. [1 Peter 3:7.] Mankind has finally reached the last stand of rebellion and so begins the first series of Christ's releases of appropriate response to such rebellion on his turf which he created and has graciously given to the human race for thousands of years.

* The first "seal" of

Christ's Authority. *

The first dealing (seal) depicts one on a white horse going forth "conquering and to conquer". [Revelation 6:2.]

This "conquering" is that of subduing. The people of the world will be 'subdued' by the state of things, because there has been an enormous upheaval, world scale event of millions of Christians disappearing into thin air! The first registration that will occur to the hearts of men (after that the Church has left the Earth) is their impurity, deceitfulness and insincerity.

There will remain a mocking disposition and attitude that will prevail in every fabric of society. [Genesis 19:14.]

The dawning of the wretched plight of man's now, unbridled narcissism, totally unbridled self centeredness, and having to live with that! The 'white horse' represents that. It is the great conquering key!

To conquer: the first need is that your opponent has fear and dread! At that point, the opponent is on a losing slide and the true conquer is emerging. There will be fear and dread because the first seal is a revelation of a world, where everybody's life of peace and security hangs in the balance.

Man is already on a losing slide without Christ but the door of 'grace' is wide open. How different it will be when the door is closed and every good thing is turned into the nasty mush of man's now unchecked and unbridaled sinful narsissitic nature. Suffering life on this earth instead of enjoying life!

There will be many (though still a minority) that under these heavy turn of events will know that this is Christ, the saviour who has become "the Lion of the tribe of Judah".

Many realise in these early stages that God is pulling the plug on man's godless giggle.

Such people, will be those who have been very close to the preaching of the Gospel, and the preaching of the worldwide "rapture" of true Christians, and the end time, wind up of the devil's ownership of the world.

Such will be relatives of Christian homes, church goers and all such, that have not been "reconciled to God through the death of his son" [Romans 5:10.]

These are they who have clear knowledge of the truth, but because of some form of carelessness and resentment, hardened their hearts, refusing Christ. All such will suffer martyrdom as 'tribulation' saints. [Revelation 7:14. 20:4.]

Remember that only Christ was found worthy (Revelation chapter 5.) to open the book and to loose the seals of judgment upon a rebellious world.

* The 2nd. seal judgment is ... "peace is taken from the Earth." And they "Kill one another" *

"And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword." [Revelation 6:4.]

Things quickly escalate. When there is no peace with neighbours or anywhere in the whole world, things reach a pitch where murder becomes a constant option!

If we think now that the statistics of murder are through the roof, imagine the holocaust of aggravated anger, that will exist when there is no peace with anyone anywhere!

Murder will be rampant.

There follows 5 more seals of judgment.

3. famine - A famine that can't be beaten; how can any economy prosper when the community is full of suspicion hate and murder. There will be a recoil of creation and nature against the wickedness of man now rampant upon earth!

4. Death in all it's multitudinous forms. death coming at the human race from every angle.

5. Those that awake to the truth of what is happening to their world and are recovered from their anti- Christ stand off, now believe, and suffer martyrdom for their faith in Christ.

6. Natural disasters on an unprecedented scale.

7. The silence in Heaven of awe and amazement at the 7 trumpet judgments of great power to follow!

*One could ask - "What preceeds the End? *

What preceded Noah and Lot and the destruction that came upon their civilisations?

The Bible clearly presents, both are integrated in detail concerning the coming of the Lord, disappearance of every true Christian and the  immediate judgment dealings upon an ungodly world. [Luke 17:26-29.]

Lot was a righteous man and he was "vexed with the filthy lifestyle of the people".

[2 Peter 2:7.]

The Bible clearly depicts in the end times the world will be obsessed with all sorts of sexual pleasure and error.

Before the Lord shot Noah onto higher ground "the earth was filled with violence" and "the thoughts and imaginations of men's hearts were only evil continually." [Genesis 6:5,13.]

*The reality of Noah today!*

And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; [2 Peter 2:5.]

Both Noah and Lot were preachers of righteousness, standing up for that which was 'right' and standing against what was 'wrong'. Noah was laughed at. Lot was threatened and denied freedom of speech! [Genesis 19:9.]

Not that many years ago, homosexuality was a criminal offence in Australia: now it is labelled a 'right' relationship.

Woolworths recently spoke down the fight against stealing and put out, that there is a need to 'accept' and factor in such behaviour as "normal"!

Once the community recoiled and was outraged at abortion. Now authorities are banning true caring professional counsellors from being the last ditch effort to guide those who will possibly suffer psychological breakdown. The trauma of conscience accusation of killing an innocent life within the womb.

Because of the worldwide festering of desperate narcissism, great wickedness can result!

Road rage is simply a narcissistic reaction that can result in murder over someone jumping into the traffic cue!

Praise the Lord, that the evidence is all around that - "Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh" [James 5:8.]
