Noah Is Pleading
"Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying, 'Let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us.'” Psalm 2:1-3 Is this not speaking of the nations of our day? It's as though this passage which was written 3,000 years ago was foreseeing the very days in which we live. There is more written in the Bible about the second coming of the Lord, than what was written about his first coming. Indeed, the entire Bible speaks again and again to the last generation, to those living in "the last days." The universal voice of our day is "let us break their bonds in pieces and cast away their cords from us." The bonds are the Word of God and the cords are that which restrains evil. Society has with great passion thrust away every restraint of the Word of God. Is there a single commandment they have not done away with? A society that murders children and denies that there's anything wrong with that; a society that embraces all that is evil and shuns all that God has said. Those who have lived long enough to remember how it was years ago stand appalled at what is happening now. It's almost beyond belief. But anyone not having lived long enough to remember how it was, has been thoroughly DESENSITIZED into believing that what we see is normal. No, it is NOT normal. We stand as the multitudes stood while Noah was building the ark. Scripture says that Noah was "a preacher of righteousness" - which tells us that as he built the ark he explained what he was doing and why. But they laughed him to scorn. "You're building a what? A place to be safe from a flood? Man, you've lost your marbles! It doesn't rain here, and you think this place is going to be flooded? Are you out of your mind?" But the flood came, didn't it. That's why they've found sea shells in the Grand Canyon, and fish fossils on mountain tops and in the pyramids in Egypt. God has left enough evidence to speak to all about sin and about scorning the Word of God. A man named Lot lived in the depraved society that was in Sodom, down south of the Dead Sea in Israel. God, intending to destroy those cities, sent an angel to bring Lot and his family out of Sodom to safety, and then horrific judgment fell upon that entire area. I've been to the Dead Sea. I've seen the salt pillars of that devastated land stretching as far as you can see. The minerals from the fire and brimstone so saturated the water of the Dead Sea that nothing can live in it, not even bacteria. The devastation of that whole area stands as a witness to this very day. It's covered with ash. What do you think is going to happen to society of today? In America, a country founded on the Word of God and whose every president up till Obama acknowledged the Lord and his Word. God made America the richest and most successful and blessed nation that has ever been on the face of the earth. Compare it to Haiti for example. Haiti was officially dedicated to Satan three separate times. Look at the condition of that country. Compare it to the condition of the country dedicated to the most high God and his Word. God cannot NOT judge this world in the worst way. Some countries have never even heard of the Word of God, but America was dedicated to it. Some deny this, citing Freemason and occult icons throughout Washington DC. Yes evil is everywhere, even in the early formations of America. But the Word of God was everywhere too. George Washington, upon his inauguration, went to a chapel and dedicated this country to the Word of God. And ...which chapel? Saint Paul's chapel, next to the site of the World Trade Center towers that were destroyed on 9/11. The chapel survived! Many say that society has gone beyond the point of no return, and that is most likely true. Judgment will come just as the flood of Noah did, and just as the devastation of Sodom did. But there is still time for individuals to be saved. If you have never surrendered your self and your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, I implore you to wait no longer. The judgments of the past came suddenly and unexpectedly, and the judgments to come will come suddenly also. God has sent men to cry out against the evils perpetrated in this country. God has sent warning judgments - September 11 and hurricane Katrina being two of the greater examples among many. But in spite of God's pleading with the people of this land, they have scoffed at him. They have broken off his bonds from them and cast the cords of his Word away. Noah is pleading, Lot is pleading; "people, please repent. Judgment is almost upon us." In the air is the sound of the hoofbeats of the four horses of the Apocalypse sent to destroy an unrepentant people from off the face of the earth. Don't be in that lot. Only eight people survived the flood of Noah's day. Surrender now and be saved. You'll never, ever regret it.
