BEFORE THE FLOOD 2
The Trumpeter is a moment to prepare the saints for the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ, calling the Church back to the truth and the path of righteousness and warning the unbelieving world about the coming judgement. It is also the period we are looking at the world events and amazing facts of the last days, as already foretold in the Word of God. Some of the revelations you may see here may shock you.
LET US PRAY.
In the Name of Jesus. Amen.
Lord Jesus! Sanctify us with your word for your word is truth. Grant us deeper understanding, revelation and wisdom today for the salvation of souls. Bless my reader or hearer today through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen
This is the Part 2 of the message- BEFORE THE FLOOD
“But of that day and hour knoweth no one, not even the angels of heaven, neither the Son, but the Father only. And as were the days of Noah, so shall be the coming of the Son of man. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall be the coming of the Son of man. Then shall two men be in the field; one is taken, and one is left: two women shall be grinding at the mill; one is taken, and one is left. Watch therefore: for ye know not on what day your Lord cometh. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief was coming, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken through. Therefore be ye also ready; for in an hour that ye think not the Son of man cometh”
“And Cain went out from the presence of Jehovah, and dwelt in the land of Nod, on the east of Eden. And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch: and he builded a city, and called the name of the city, after the name of his son, Enoch. And unto Enoch was born Irad: and Irad begat Mehujael; and Mehujael begat Methushael; and Methushael begat Lamech. And Lamech took unto him two wives: the name of the one was Adah, and the name of the other Zillah., And Adah bare Jabal: he was the father of such as dwell in tents and have cattle. And his brother's name was Jubal: he was the father of all such as handle the harp and pipe. And Zillah, she also bare Tubal-cain, the forger of every cutting instrument of brass and iron: and the sister of Tubal-cain was Naamah. And Lamech said unto his wives: Adah and Zillah, hear my voice; Ye wives of Lamech, hearken unto my speech: For I have slain a man for wounding me, And a young man for bruising me: If Cain shall be avenged sevenfold, Truly Lamech seventy and sevenfold”
You should remember that in the previous episode, we saw how Jesus painted a picture of what the world would look like in the end time before His coming to reign on the earth forever. This can be seen when you read the books of Matthew Chapter 24 and 25
Previously, again, we looked at the 4 out of the 7 characteristics of the world of Noah and seek to avoid their mistakes so that the judgement of God should not fall on us. God never does anything without warning or signal. We said that their generation were known for;
Now, the other things discovered from their world is that,
THE DAYS OF NOAH WERE KNOWN FOR THEIR;
When you read Genesis Chapter 4 verse 23, you will observe the name of the 1st polygamist in the whole world, the man- Lamech. He broke the world record. He was the husband of Adah and Zillah. At the creation of the world, God had set His standard for the marriage institution and that is one man, one woman. The name were and should be Adam and Eve, not Adam and Eve with Mary or Adam and Steve. The man, Lamech knew the standard but deliberately decided to violate it. What can God do?
Did you know that the first institution created by God Himself, which is the family institution is under attack today, showing to us that the coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ is at hand.
In this century, marriage and family institution are under attack.
This is an age of sexual revolution and perversions. You hear of incest, immorality, bestiality, pre-marital affair, gay and lesbian lifestyles, rape, divorce and other vices. Some of these immoral livings are not only seen in the society but also rampant these days in the Church. How many people are still keeping to the laws of purity and chastity before marriage? Some prefer to taste their lust or love before the ideal day.
Even some preachers are welcoming it and therefore purchasing the tickets for their members. You hear today, “ The Holy Ghost told me, that my wife is no longer the real one” We are breeding worms in our garments. Which means, one has the right to marry and sack in the name of the Holy Ghost told me. What a contradiction of the gospel and blasphemy at the highest order!
Friend, It’s time to escape for your life. This is an age of deception even from many pulpits. Who are you following and what are you believing today? You may not know an Antichrist till he is revealed. Take heed so that no man deceives you.
Today, we have many cases of divorce in our society and the Church. I heard of the case of a man who has reached the age of 85 years, filed for a divorce against his wife of 78 years after married for 45 years. What a world!
I think this is the reason why people are behaving like animals and children becoming stubborn and vagabond. You should know that in the time of Noah, the union produced giants- “demon possessed people”
Friend, I don’t know where you are now? The question is, what do you believe about the family? Jesus said that the generation that will witness His coming is just like the generation of Noah. The age will deviate from the Divine-set out rule or standard. Are you hearing the news of the world events regarding marriage?
Some countries have passed the bills on gay marriages. Even bestiality now is on the pipeline, meaning that man has the right to marry fellow gender or an animal. What a degradation!
In many parts of the world today, the school Board have begun to distribute “love has no gender” posters to students. The posters have hearts with various combinations of stick figures.
I read about a particular Christian body which has approved a same-sex liturgy which is been called “the witnessing and Blessing of a lifelong covenant” In the proposed rites, each person would make a vow to the other, exchange rings and be declared “ bound to one another in a holy covenant, as long as they both shall live” What an abomination!
Polygamy didn't stop with Lamech. He set the ball rolling for this age. I think, the nation of Uganda has passed the bill few days ago in support of polygamy. So, one can marry as many women as possible. No more restrictions. Marriage has become a contract, not a covenant.
So, to some countries, polygamy is not legal but multiple partner relationship.
Have you seen where we are today? One man said “If God fail to judge this generation, He will apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah” This may be a true saying. Though God is God, He choose what He does. But in as much as you know Him as God of mercy, He is a consuming fire. Repent today and accept His everlasting love and life.
THE DAYS OF NOAH WERE KNOWN FOR THEIR;
From the passage again,Genesis Chapter 4:23-24, we noticed that the man, Lamech was a real humanist. He sets himself up, boasted in the presence of his wives.
What is the meaning of Lamech?. His name means “powerful”
St. Paul saw it when he wrote to his son in the faith, Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:1-5
2 TIMOTHY 3:1-5
“But know this, that in the last days grievous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, haughty, railers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, implacable, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, no lovers of good, traitors, headstrong, puffed up, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God; holding a form of godliness, but having denied the power thereof: from these also turn away”
This is indeed the perilous hour!
Men are indeed lovers of self, proud and mocking their Maker. Watch the world of the politics and politicians today. What did you observed? Pride is everywhere even in the body of Christ.
There was a man in verse 18 named Mehujael which is “Blot out God’s name” We don’t need God anymore. We may pay Him a lip-service only but we don’t need Him. We may build Him a Church, sponsor His programs but we will not worship Him in truth and spirit. Let Him give us a chance. This is the spirit of rebellion.
Friend, how do you take this God? Are you paying Him a lip-service? I can hear you say, “After all I do pay my tithe to the Church, I’m a pastor, I sing in the Church choir or mighty Evangelist” Is there a little pride in your function? Remember, God has a foundation which stands sure. He knows those that are His for if anyone names the Lord, he must depart from iniquity.
In US now, there is a little underground debate over allowing the name of God in a dollar bill and seeking the avenue to take away the 10 commandments from the school and the reading of the Bible in the public places. This is the generation of Mehujael saying ‘ Please, don’t mention God again’
‘Though we may go to Church, but don’t pray too much,- He understands. This is the current advice now to those who still love this name. Don’t say anything about Him in the bus- we are in a journey. Life goes on without Him. He is too old to be remembered. This is a technological world and we are advancing. We don’t need Him anymore. He was helpful yesterday but no more. We may pray for His miracle but can’t admit Him in our lives. The inn keeper said when Jesus was about to be born “No vacancy” Today, some of the business men parading themselves as the ministers of the gospel make the magic real to people and hungry seekers. Yes! We are wise generation!
Friend, this is the world of Noah here with us again. Can you see the flood about to come. To Enoch, he made a wise decision the day his wife put to bed a young boy called Methuselah. For 300 years, he walked with God and he was raptured.
If you are not a genuine Christian, what are you waiting for? Enoch saw the vision of the coming judgement and he made a positive choice. Will you do such now? That life of hypocrisy, immorality, lies, idolatry, adultery and robbery cannot save you from the coming wrath.
Finally, the DAYS OF NOAH WERE KNOWN FOR THEIR;
In Genesis Chapter 6 verses 1-3, we saw wickedness of men living in the world.
“ And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the ground, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all that they chose. And Jehovah said, My Spirit shall not strive with man for ever, for that he also is flesh: yet shall his days be a hundred and twenty years”
One thing about God is that He sees every wickedness going on. What you hear today is the exact life lived during the dispensation of the human government which is the day of Democracy. God decided to give man a chance to rule himself and dictate certain affairs. Men became corrupt.
What are we not hearing today- corruption in the highest order- in the school, government, business quarters even the Church which were meant to be the hope of a common man? Upon all the policies and human systems, man and society is getting worse day after day. Friend, when you see all these things, you should know that something is about to happen.
Today, we have 3 rampant pollution.
a. SOCIAL POLLUTION
This includes murder cases. Violence, kidnapping and other vices. It is an age where a school boy of 12 years can use a pistol and kill over 50 children in a classroom. A boy of 15 years can point a weapon at his parents. There is confusion everywhere. We now hear of kidnapping and payments for ransom, to regain freedom. Human life is no more a valuable asset as people go to meet their maker in thousands everyday and some are unprepared.
b. SPIRITUAL POLLUTION
This is an age of magics, witchcraft, demonic practices in many places. The originals are fading away and in the word of the prophet, “Multitude are in the valley of Decision”
The spirit of Antichrist in this age is the spirit of deception. Many people are deceived today with many false miracles and signs. My friend, are you deceived already? The last battle is in the Church and the enemy is doing all things possible for him to deceive, if possible the elect.
Some preachers are now making merchandise of many with their charms, consulting the native doctors, just to gain cheap popularity and fame.
Did you know that false prophets of this end times will need false miracles to “validate” their authority and make non-believers and ignorant Christians to fear them? Even in Moses’ time, the magicians of Pharaoh’s were able to duplicate the first few of the plagues which Moses and Aaron performed.
Jesus would always say, “Take heed, so that you are not deceived”
Today, you have what one may call “the devil in angels color”
Friend, You are yet to see miracles- The false prophet will use thousands of them to lure many people into the net of the Antichrist. He will counterfeit all the miracles Jesus did when he was here on the earth. Who is your master? Who are you following? That preacher you see in the street, church even appearing in the television may be an agent of the Antichrist.
Now calls for carefulness and seriousness.
Jesus said His coming may be as a thief in the night.
Friend, This is an age like the days of Noah. So, when you hear this message, don’t take it as one of those jokes.
c. SEXUAL POLLUTION
Sexual pollution is here with us. It is a time of equal yokes, pornography increase, wife and husband swappings and other terrible things.
This is the age of unprecedented wickedness. The Age of Noah is here. The justs which receive His grace are building the ark for their safety. Very soon, it will rain again and the Master will shut the door Himself. But for this second, the Door is still open.
As I begin to round up now, in this trumpeter series, will you surrender your life to Jesus Christ now and live for Him, if you've not done so. This is one being born-again and all other miracles will follow. The only prayer a sinner needs is “Lord, have mercy upon me” not following men of God for prayers for prosperity. You need Jesus Christ now before it becomes too late. Any moment from now, Jesus the owner of all life will return. Are you ready to see Him?
If you want Him to possess HIS life, then pray this prayer and believe it with all your heart.
“Lord Jesus, I thank you for your Word. I’m a sinner and I can’t save myself. I’ve accepted your Word into my Spirit today. Please, come into my life. Be my Lord and personal Savior. Give me power to live for you. Thank you Lord for saving my soul in Jesus Name. Amen!
