it was in the days of Noah"

Many Christians are completely confused with what is going on
around them. They know things are changing rapidly; and things are being
turned upside down and inside out.
This study is addressed to those Christians who are willing to
open their minds to what the Word of God is telling us about the events
of our day. Many times we
wonder why God would allow certain events to happen, and why people
carry on the way that they do. Before
our Lord was crucified and rose from the dead, He gave us a warning that
reveals the truth about these end times were living in.
Matthew 23 ended with our Lord telling his disciple’s about His
second coming. These twelve
Apostles of Jesus Christ were with him for the past three years, and
Jesus told them that He came into the Word for the purpose of being
crucified. Jesus told these
Apostles "Behold, your house is left unto you desolate."
Then as that chapter ended, Jesus said in Matthew
; "For I say unto you, Ye shall
not see Me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is He that cometh in
the name of the Lord." Jesus
was speaking here of His second advent, which is and will be at the
sounding of the seventh and last trumpet, as revealed to apostle John,
just as Jesus spoke to him about the day of the Lord in the book of
Jesus was with his disciples in the
At the top of the warning list given to His disciples was, "Take
heed that no man deceive you. For Many shall come in My name, saying; `I
am Christ;' and shall deceive many." (Matthew 24:4, 5)
How can you really know and make sure that you are not being
deceived? By verifying what
people are saying with the written word of God your Holy Bible.
Deception will be the foremost thing to guard against in these
latter days, with all the signs and seals that are taking place all
around us, those that are sealed with the truth of the entire Bible,
God's Word in their minds simply will not be deceived.
Many will claim to know and write in their books about future
events, yet later they will come back with revisions to change what they
had told you in the first place. We
can be sure of one thing because this warning came from the lips of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ; "But of that day and hour knoweth
no man, no, not the angels of heaven but My Father only."
Then Jesus continued; "But as the days of Noe [Noah] were
so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be." (Matthew
We must understand that the things that are going on around us
today is what was going on in the days of Noah.
Those things that were happening then will be common in our day,
in this generation of "the parable of the Fig Tree".
Jesus warned us in the 32nd verse, "Now learn a parable of the
fig tree; When his branches yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye
know that summer is nigh."
Remember that the entire subject of this twenty forth chapter of
Matthew is the event that will take place just before the return of our
Lord, and the parable of the fig tree was one of those things to watch
for. Mark 13:28, 29;
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when her branches is yet
tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near,"
 "So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come
to pass, know that it is nigh even at the doors." 
There is no disagreement that this tender fig tree is that nation
of the Jews called
The one world governmental system of the world established this
tender nation, and the superpower of all superpowers stood by to defend
this "fig tree" that offered only leaves, but with no fruit.
For the past forty five years each of us have watch this nation
grow it leaves to shade the truth of our Lord Jesus Christ from the
Word, yet not one piece of fruit leading the souls of this world to the
one true Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, "the Messiah, the
anointed one" [#5547 in Strong’s Greek dictionary].
Leaves on a tree shade those under it from the life giving sun,
the truth from the word. The fruit of the fig tree gives life, and the
life spoken of here is eternal life in Jesus Christ.
God has given us His eternal plan for all times, the eternity in
his Word and that plan is written down so we can read it and not be
deceived. You have the God
given right to accept it or refuse it; and if you accept it, then it
becomes essential that you sow the truths of all His Word in your mind.
Jesus warned us in Revelation 9:4 that when those
"scorpions". in reference to the fallen angels arrival here on
earth; "And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the
grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only
those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads."
Knowing the time you are living in, and those things and events
that are to take place within that generation is all part of that seal
of God that must be in your mind before the coming of Satan and his
fallen angels. Once they
have arrived, those without the seal of the truths of all of God's Word
will be given over to them. Revelation
9:5 "And to
them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should
be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a
scorpion, when he striketh a man."
When a scorpion strikes a man, and the venom hits the central
nervous system, the man is rendered helpless against the scorpion.
Jesus is telling you that this will be exactly as you will be
against Satan and his fallen angels and their world government, without
the seal of God's Living Word in your mind.
The Apostle Paul warned us in Ephesians 6:10, 11;
"Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power
of His might."  "Put on the whole armour of God,
that ye may be able to stand against
the wiles of the devil."  You put on armor to give
yourself protection when a battle is to be fought.
And the battle that is spoken of here is that time in the near
future when Satan and his fallen angels will be here on earth trying to
deceive all the people living here in their flesh and blood bodies.
He will be presenting himself as the one true Christ, when in
fact he is the fake, the antichrist, or better said; "instead of
Paul told us exactly what that battle will be about in Ephesians
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against
principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of
this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."  "Wherefore
take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand
in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." 
Satan is supernatural, and his angels are supernatural just as he
is. They will come into our
realm or dimension that human beings exist in, and they will have their
supernatural powers to do what they will do to get you to believe that
they are God, and his angels. The
armor that God has told you to put on is the entire Word of God, from
Genesis to Revelation. God's Word is the only warning that will keep you
informed as to what the entire plan of God is, so that when our
generation faces the presence of those from that darkness and spiritual
wickedness, we will see those things for what they are, and where they
came from. God is telling
you this is going to happen, and it will happen exactly as I told you it
would. This is why the "Whole armour of God" is
necessary; it is the only thing that will allow you "be able to
withstand in the evil day" against Satan.
Satan will use the Scripture to deceive those in our generation
that just don't care to take the time to read and study all of the
Scripture of God. They say
that we are living in New Testament times, and the Old Testament just
doesn't matter, and if that is your attitude, you will be deceived.
The Old Testament is gives us the examples and warnings as how it
shall be in these end times. It
gives us stories of events that men of God faced in the distant past,
and relates them as warning for those of us living in this time of the
end. Paul said after
reviewing many of the events of the Old Testament, in I Corinthians
"Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they
are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are
come."  "Wherefore let him that thinketh he
standeth take heed lest he fall." 
When you rely on some tradition or thought that has been
peddled down through the years, you are placing your eternal life on a
hear-say, and not on the Scriptures.
When our Lord taught, He would continually ask; "Haven't you
read?"; or say "It is written..." and then go to the
writings of a prophet such as Moses, or Daniel or another Prophet of
God, to give His example. Yet
many Christians today would rather chase after stories of
"apples", rather than understand what really happened in the
Garden of Eden, when Eve had her two sons.
They would rather chase after pie in the sky promises, such as
the rapture doctrine, and close their mind to the truth, then read in Ezekiel
13:18-21, what God thinks of those that lead the souls of His people
into these fairy tales. "Wherefore
thus saith the Lord God; "Behold, I am against your pillows [your
coverings; traditions], wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make
The Christian world today is in a mold of questioning why they
should try to see the truth and put the time in to study all the
Scriptures, when they can have the Kenites do their thinking for them.
Thus you have entire ministries and denominations allowing these
sons of Satan [Kenites] who sets their agenda for them.
Is it any wonder that our nation is turning away from the laws
and Commandments of God that it has over the past few decades.
The salt of the earth has lost its savor.
God has set up examples that are recorded in the Old Testament
that are exact copies of what we are facing today in our daily lives,
and He expects those of His elect to read and prepare for the events
that are in his eternal plan. That
is what our Bible is, the Plan of God for this earth age, and on into
the next. It is written
down for you to read and understand, and seal away in your mind for
those times in our generation that are going to come against our
generation. Expect those
things to happen, just as God told Jeremiah to tell the House of Judah
to expect to go into the captivity under Nebuchadnezzar and the
Babylonians. This book is
all about the preparation we must have in our minds. We will use only
the Scriptures for this study, where we can learn how it was in the days
of Noah that our Lord warned about.
"It will be as it was in the days of Noah".
