Noah … The Ark … And Salvation: They Didn’t Know or Care it Was About to Rain

Days of Noah

“And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so will it also be in the days of the Son of Man: 27 people were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, and they were being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.” -Luke 17:26-27 (NASB)

We are living now in the “last days” before Christ’s return and it’s now more than ever critical that we pay close attention to what His word (the Bible) says about the days we are in now and those prophesied for us approaching at breakneck speed.

The Bible tells us that the days before the Lord’s return and the very difficult days leading up to it would be as it was in the days of Noah and Lot – Luke 17. People were doing their thing and living life as it was. Noah did preach righteousness to them for approximately 120 years (2 Peter 2:5 ), but in the end , out of the perhaps millions of people living in those days, just eight (8) were saved from the flood’s destruction. Yes, just 8!

So what’s that tell you?

Is this being repeated today, obviously, there are many more people on the earth now but will it be proportionately similar to Noah’s day? In other words, will only a few be saved (Luke 13:23), rescued from the terrible Day of the Lord? I think you’ll find the answer, referenced in Scripture – to be only a few will be saved.

So what’s this mean to you and I?

Are we watching for the Lord’s return and the times leading up to His arrival? Are we faithful in reading and studying His word so as to alert others on what’s coming? Or are we resting in the things of the world for our security and strength? Is our faith built upon worldly stuff or on Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ? Friends, these are no-kidding questions that we must ask ourselves in order to be ready for the “rain”.

But … who’s watching and waiting? Who’s got their spare oil ready to light the way for the Bridegroom when He comes for His Bride (Matt 25)? Who’s heeding the very words of Jesus while He was on the earth to “WATCH”? (Luke 12:35-36; Luke 12:40; Mark 13:33-34; Mark 13:35-37; Luke 21:31, 34, 36). For Jesus Himself says…

“Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36)

No … seriously …  who’s watching, who’s ready, who’s paying attention to the signs right before our eyes in the things happening now in the world – war, rumors thereof, violence, crime, hate, persecution, famine, food costs skyrocketing, resources becoming more scarce, global unrest, financial systems ready to collapse, supply chain problems, diseases, pestilences, etc. Many events foretold us in the Bible are before our eyes now and getting worse. Will you and I be ready for the Lord when He comes or calls our name to come and be with Him? Are we praying now for our family members to receive the free gift of salvation? Let’s not be silent in these days but try and spread the word of His arrival and lead others to the Rock of our salvation.

Don’t be caught sleeping and unaware of what the Bible says will precede the Lord’s return. Tell others and be not silent for eternity is at stake.

Death Can Come Swiftly and Without Warning – Are You Saved and Ready to Stand Before the Lord?

Your Body Goes to the Grave But What About Your Soul … Where Will Your’s Go?


Don’t put off considering [strongly] your salvation today. This is NOT something to play around with – this is eternity we are talking about and it’s forever and it’s serious. Please I encourage you to make a decision and/or a repentant u-turn in your life back to the Lord. Please don’t play games with your salvation; heaven is real but so is hell and it’s a place YOU DON’T want to end up in no matter what this life offers you. Satan is a subtle deceiver and will trick you into following his evil/wicked ways instead of the Lord’s good and righteous paths.

Death – this dark and unseen foe will face us all one day – a most sobering reality! And on that day, we will all face eternity with our destination locked in. For heaven or for hell. Some may disagree but regardless the cold hard fact is, this covert ‘enemy’ death will meet us face-to-face at the door of eternity and this will be inescapable.

Men are shooting men in cold blood with insane, wicked and senseless violence these days (e.g. BLM, Antifa, progressives, Leftists, morons, lunatics, etc). You and I have to wake up to the fact that one day, it could be that our life has been snuffed out. Wake up!!

Folks, this is the reality of the times we are living – death can come fast and without any notice or warning. Heart attacks, “death-jabs”, car accidents, stray bullets, kids being shot, and killed playing in the streets or on playgrounds. None of these were in a war, none were expecting to die that day on that hour or that minute but the fact is they did. Death came knocking and to take away. There was no announcing its arrival and to many, there was no time to prepare or make decisions previously unmade or even reverse poor decisions. So the big question is –

…are you ready for death if something unexpected took your life today?

I’m not trying to scare you but I am trying to underline and highlight the real-life reality of this inevitable event.

But are you saved?

James 4:14 says that life is but a vapor – we are here today yet can be gone tomorrow. What does this say to you? Are you shaken or stirred in your spirit that eternity is waiting just up ahead undetected and unforeseen? Have you ever thought about it? You know once you pass through the gates of death you cannot come back and do a re-do. You can’t return and live a better life or make a better eternal decision for Christ. Now is the time, today is the day. Many living in this world live only the things in this world and their security and hope are all wrapped up in stuff, friends, or family. No God, no thought of Him nor knowledge of Him. Many people think they will live to an old ripe age and later on, at some point, they will consider thinking about their eternal destination and perhaps think about Christ and what He did for us. And by then, they think, they’ll turn their worldly lifestyles and consider their sin and do something about it.  Not so fast friends, the ‘by then’ timeframe may never come, and ‘by then’ it may be too late. Now is the day and now is the time to do something about it for tomorrow may never come.

“Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth–” -James 4:14 (KJV)

There are professed Christians that sit in church every Sunday that don’t know Almighty God and will not enter His rest. Look at Matt 7:23-25. What does the Lord say on that day to even the people who professed Him as Lord, Lord and performed miracles, “I never knew you, depart from me…” Friends, what does this speak to you? To me, it says that we should do everything we can NOW to KNOW the Lord. And how do we know Him? Sincerely read His word, pray, seek His face, confess our sins, practice repentance, witness to others. These are some of the things we should do daily in living for Him. Do you do these things? What will He say to you once you stand before Him? Remember, your eternal destination is not based on how ‘good’ you may think you are or on your good works. It based solely on your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son. It’s about faith, hope, and trust.

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.” -Matt 7:21-23 (KJV)

So are you saved?

So today, right now wherever you are, whoever you are – wealthy, famous, weak, poor, prideful, ignorant – strongly consider where you are at in your walk with Christ or maybe you are not walking with Him. First, turn off the TV, get away from social networking and withdraw to someplace by yourself where you can get alone with God and pray. Seek Him and pour out your heart to Him. Ask the Lord if you are right in His eyes. He will guide you and He will direct your life but you absolutely must trust in Him and walk by faith not by your sight (2 Cor 5:7). This is a required regimen for every Christian.

Relying on church attendance, pastors, priests, (Popes), and friends in the congregation and family will not ensure you enter Christ’s home – heaven, His rest, eternity with Him.

Instead this is a one-on-one between you and the Lord! Eph 2:8-9

And those who think that regular church attendance are the means to enter heaven are being deceived big time by your spiritual enemy – Satan. Disregard and dispose of this false teaching regardless of who it comes from. Read God’s word, know Him, know His Son, and count on the Holy Spirit to lead you daily through thick and thin. Jeremiah 9:24 puts things into a blunt perspective.

If you had to evaluate your life right now would you say that if you died today you would see the Lord and be ushered into His rest? Are you not sure? If you are not absolutely sure of your eternal destination then it’s time to get on your knees in prayer to the Lord, confessing your sin, professing Jesus Christ as your Lord and that Almighty God raised Him from the dead -Rom 10:9-10. Ask Him into your life to be your Lord and Savior, then live for Him daily not just on Sunday. Repent of your sins … daily. Live a holy life before Him. Witness to others – share Christ with your friends and family and neighbors. This is what being a Christian really means. Are you saved today? For remember the words of Christ …

“For many are called, but few are chosen..” -Matt 22:14 (KJV)

WARNING! – Stay Alert, and Keep Watch! Do Not Be Found Sleeping!

Stay Alert and Keep Watch!

“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34- For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35- Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36- Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37- And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” -Mark 13:33-37 (KJV)

These were commands from our Lord. They are not optional. They are to be heeded and followed but how many have thrown them aside for their own wisdom and intelligence?

Some have video cameras installed inside and outside their homes/business to provide as it were a constant sentinel that stands watch over their homes or businesses.  They have installed these to keep watch over their stuff and be ready to be alerted to unwanted visitors. The key phrase here is “keep watch“. But who is watching vigilantly for the return of the Lord? I would venture to say that most Christians are not. This is sad and disheartening to know that those who call themselves Christians have become callous to the return of the Lord and do not look forward to His return.

Jesus has commanded us to watch and be alert many, many times in His word and therefore, there will be NO excuses for not watching or not being ready!

You see not many are keeping watch or staying alert looking for the signs of His return. Why? Lethargy, complacency, laziness, lack of knowing their Bibles and some with no desire to leave the comfort of their present, pleasant lives. Keeping watch involves knowing what’s happening in the world and what the Bible says (what the Lord said) would precede His coming.  Keeping watch calls to account personal accountability. God has chosen to speak to us through His word – the Bible – and through signs such as with the lights in the heavens – the sun, moon and stars (Gen 1:14). He has also chosen to communicate via the environment and through nature.

Reading Matt 24 and Luke 21, the Lord says that many things will preclude His coming and gave us an outline of what they would be. Here are some of them – the birth pains or the beginnings of the signs. Are you paying attention? Remember, the Lord Jesus lamb-basted the religious leaders of His time (today’s pastors, priests, teachers, evangelists, church) for not knowing about His first coming – Luke 16:1-3; Luke 19.


Tons of lies, false truths and twisted rhetoric is spewing from our government and especially from the White House. In fact, nations and their governments around the world are deceiving people by the millions. Lies about how everything will be OK or this is just temporary or there’s no food crisis, etc, etc.

Remember, in not too short of a time the Antichrist and False Prophet will make their move to come on the scene and their dictates will resemble what’s happening now across the world. And many people are following lock-step into submission – right into their collective hands of deceit, and lies. People are sleeping in mass across the globe and it’s very sad to see this.

There is a twisted web of lies and deceit coming from political leadership across the US. Many of our national leaders are being fooled and led by dark “principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Eph 6:12). Bottom line – they are being led by Satanic forces falling right into their trap and web of deceit. Why? They have rejected Almighty God and He has left them to their own devices.

According to God’s word,

Deception is a huge sign mentioned by Jesus 4 times in one chapter. This is both extremely significant and important and we should pay close attention to what this means in our lives. Many wolves have entered the Christian arena (Acts 20:29) and are bent on destroying Christendom through false teaching and false doctrine.

Many follow the tradition and wisdom of men thereby leading many to the gates of hell.

Many preachers have and are perverting the word of God for their own gain. They are using worldly thinking and teaching and saying that these things lead to Godliness (1 Tim 6:5-6). How absolutely false! Take heed and beware!


In America now, God is being shown the door; asked to leave, told to get out of our lives. People, it seems have no use for Him (their Creator) anymore. So His hand is/has being lifted and consequently evil and wickedness have walked right in with fervent zeal. Therefore, hate is increasing like a freight train speeding out of control and society is in strife, fear, and upheaval. Lawlessness is abounding – all over the world. Hatred with and against family members and children, people killing one another especially here in America. Why? Iniquity and sin are increasing and people’s love for one another is waxing frigidly cold. Many are being offended for even the slightest reasons and political correctness is the new American way. If you preach and teach the full counsel of God, in other words, all Christ’s words you will, today, offend many in and out of the church. Therefore, most of our Christian leaders choose to avoid teaching all the truth found in the Bible and consequently many will be lost for they are not hearing about sin, repentance, and salvation. Take heed and beware!

Environmental/Events in Nature

Environmental or naturally occurring events are ramping up like never before. I’ve heard it said that even the weather people and weather scientists are astonished and perplexed at the weather phenomena with records being smashed and the severeness of weather disasters across the world. Earthquakes are doubling, tornadoes are more frequent and intense, hurricanes resulting in more destruction and death, flooding is absolutely terrible and rampant, deep and wide sinkholes opening up all across the world, unseasonably cold or hot conditions, volcanoes spewing in record numbers, and others waking up after many years of dormancy. What do all these things mean?

Has anyone really stopped to consider what time is it on God’s prophetic time clock? Has anyone thought to connect Bible Prophecy foretold to us by Jesus and His Apostles in scripture with current events? Do people even read His word today? Do they care? Or do most think that He isn’t coming anymore and toss the Bible out of their lives?

What about our churches … are they teaching about Christ’s return?

Are they alerting and warning people about the events Jesus warned us about prior to His second coming? You know He spoke about this in 3 of the 4 Gospels.

Dear friends, I believe that the Day of the Lord (the day He will start to bring His severe wrath upon this world for its sinfulness and unrepentant hearts) is very near and His severe judgments are just around the corner. God has been and is yet warning us through many events, yes, and through calamities, to turn back to Him – Joel 2:12-17. He will do what He thinks it takes to try and turn us around. In Amos 4, the Lord God repeatedly sent warnings through natural events trying to get the northern kingdom of Israel to return to Him – famine, drought, crop damage, pestilences and wars – but they refused to return (ca. 8th century BC). See any difference today? We are experiencing the same types of warnings through nature and the environment and many of them are getting worse and worse. In the Book of Jeremiah (Jer 8:7), we are told that even the stork, the dove, the swift and the thrush know the appointed times of their going and coming. But we humans seem to be quite ignorant of the times the Lord speaks to us about in His word. And soon His grace will disappear and then all “hell” will break lose!

Bottom Line

Are you ready for the road ahead? Are you prepared? It’s time we got on our knees and did some serious praying; confessing our sin, repenting and turning back to the Lord in the things we do, say and think. BEING READY, alert and watchful are what today is about and what tomorrow will bring. Be ready to tell others about God, about His Son, about His free gift of salvation and the forgiveness of sins. Be ready to give an answer for your faith to others – being active and alive in our faith. Be ready to stand up for your faith and not back down in this antichrist-driven (1 John 2:18) and anti-God-ridden world. And finally, be ready in our heart, mind, soul and spirit for the rapture of the church (Christ’s Bride), which, IMHO, is nearer than most think. Be ready folks, get ready, stand ready for the return of the Lord.

“Sanctify ye a fast, call a solemn assembly, gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land into the house of the LORD your God, and cry unto the LORD, Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come.” -Joel 1:14-15 (KJV)
