Summary: Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord and he and his family were lifted above the flood. And God will lift us up as well.
 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord 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 that I have made them.

We are-in dark times, there-is no sense in pretending that it's not true. There is no sense in trying to whitewash it, There is no sense in trying to convince ourselves that it's just a little bump in the road, or-it's Just a little turbulence and everything is going to smooth out.
We need to be honest with ourselves, we need to-Face the Facts.
We are in the times the Bible speaks about. In Isaiah he speaks about a people that pulls sin like a cart with a rope.
And he Says = There Is a generation that has No shame and they can't even blush when they sin. He says: They call evil good, and good evil, they put light for darkness and darkness for light and sweet for bitter and bitter for sweet.
He says.-There is no fear of God before their eyes.
This know also, that in the last days perilous times 5h all come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady big b minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power there of--from such turn away.
Isaiah spoke with unbelievable prophetic insight and discernment about the times and the people,the hour that we are living in.
Isaiah 1: 4-6
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a Seed of evil doers, children that are corrupters; they have 'forsaken' the Lord, they have provoked the Holy one of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
Why should ye be stricken any more? ye will revolt more and more: the whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint. From the Sole of the foot even unto the head there is no soundness in it; but wounds, and bruises, and putrefying sores: they have not been closed, neither mollified with ointment
I know this is sounding really bleak, and depressing and that is intentional because it is the plain simple unvarnished truth.
The truth is; these are dark, evil, times, and I feel mandated by God to truthfully and accurately present to your minds the reality of the times we are in.
I feel like I am one of Few that are really speaking accurately and truthfully concerning the conditions and the atmosphere of these times.
The Majority of the voices that we are hearing today are not speaking accurately or truthfully.
Jeremiah 6:14 spoke of these pillow prophets;
They have healed the also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
Jeremiah said: For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest everyone dealeth falsely.
Jeremiah 14: 14
Then the Lord said unto me, the prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a (false Vision) and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.
I wish I could get up here and preach to you that we are Just going through a rough patch but we'll be through it in Just a little While; but if I am going to be a true man of God, and speak truthfully and accurately to you; then I can't do that because I would be lying to you.
The truth-is; everything we have seen and experienced up until now has Just been the pre- cursor. the tremblings, the pre- birth pains of what is coming.
Pastor. Why would you say such things? We come to church to be encouraged. We come to church to hear a bless me word. We want to hear how everything is turning around and how that our society-is suddenly going to wake up and be good again.
We want to hear how - Jesus loves everybody and he's not mad at anybody, and how he doesn't Judge anybody, and how everybody-is saved already they Just don't know it yet.
