Today’s Scrip-Bit 29 September 2010 Luke 17:26‏

Luke 17:26.    And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
 
Oh Friends, the rain’s finally stopped in my area. Thank the Lord! I hope it’s stopped in yours too, if it was also raining there the past two days. And let’s hope it stops long enough for the earth to at least absorb all that moisture recently deposited. I had to go into Toronto yesterday afternoon, during rush hour in the pouring rain, and several times questioned my sanity for being out in such horrible conditions at that time of day. But I had faithfully promised to attend a function, so with the Lord leading and guiding, I banned my belly and made the journey. (smile) And truthfully, the function turned out to be quite interesting, and the rain had ceased by the time I headed home. But yuh know Friends, in Noah’s time that rain lasted forty days and the ensuing flood a hundred and fifty. Now, per the coming of His kingdom, Jesus said: ‘And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.’ Jesus likens His return to that of the earth’s destruction in Noah’s time. ‘They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.’  (Luke 17:27-30) Oh Friends, how much plainer can Jesus put it eh? Genesis 6 clearly states: ‘And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart (intent or thought) was only evil continually (all day). And it repented the Lord (He was sorry) that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me (I’m sorry) that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.’ (Gen.6:5-8) Now let me ask a foolish question mih breddren. What do you think the Lord sees when He looks down on the earth now? The same so and so thing mih people; wickedness everlasting! And multiplied numerous times to boot! That’s because the wickedness practiced back in Noah’s day was like kindergarten to now. Today we have our Master’s in wickedness, working towards our Ph.D; so rampant and destructive are the tentacles of Lucifer and his evil cronies. They’ve come up with evil doings that would make the evildoers of Noah and Jesus’ time cringe with fear. That’s how bad it is in our world today. Furthermore, the iniquity workers are avidly seeking new and more evil schemes every day, hence my saying we only have the M.A in evil right now. Yes Friends, our world’s getting more evil every day instead of more righteous, and we have only ourselves to blame by not standing up strong and steadfast enough against the workers of evil. But my people, the basic but ever so important point that Jesus is trying to make here is that despite umpteen warnings from Noah and those faithful around Sodom and Gomorrah, life went on just as wickedly as before; the warnings were blatantly spurned and disregarded. Hn! Until judgement was eventually rendered. But then it was too late for the majority of the populace. As Matthew puts it: ‘And (they) knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.’ (Mat.24:39) Now Friends, remember I’m no prophet, but that doesn’t mean I can’t glean a little sense from nonsense. (smile) And if we claim to believe in Jesus and the Word, then isn’t it logical to expect that if the Lord destroyed the entire earth and many evil civilizations during the course of time, plus Jesus promises that His next coming will be apocalyptic, then shouldn’t we be very concerned about the current state of our world and the possible repercussions for our evil bent? Remember all the other civilizations had some sort of warning which they never took seriously. Oh my people, let’s not be as foolish nuh! So it’s been two thousand years since Jesus warned us of the end to come, but note too He said that it could come at any time. Even He, the Son of God, didn’t know when. Only the Father knows. So let’s smarten up nuh Friends. Let’s take the coming again seriously and set our houses in order, for it could come today, tomorrow or another thousand years from now. But we need to be prepared, just in case it does come tomorrow, or even today. For if it comes and we’re not ready, then crapaud smoke we pipe yes people! We’ll be then condemned to eternal death and damnation in Lucifer’s evil company. No siree! I don’t know about you nuh Friends, but I certainly want to avoid that most repulsive conclusion at all costs. Therefore, me and mine will worship and serve the Lord God Jehovah and thereby avoid that disastrous result. My people, all we’re dealing with here is a little common sense and simple logic: The world has been evil before, the people were warned but did not listen, and they were eventually destroyed. Now luckily, the Son of God forewarned us about more destruction to come, so why are we that reluctant to accept His warning eh? Anyway, I sincerely pray that by the time it does happen, we, the fortunate and caring believers, would have spread the LOVE Revolution across the entire world, so that no unfortunate souls would be lost to Lucifer; the way our Leader, Jesus, desperately wants it. We’ll end with a simple but subtle and powerful reminder from Jesus: ‘Remember Lot’s wife.’  (Luke 17:32) And if you don’t know the story, or you need to refresh your memory, check out Genesis 19:24-39. Much LOVE mih people!…it’s not a matter of if…but when…retribution will be administered…
