As it was in the days of Noah…
Jesus warned us that when He comes again, to take His church home, that the condition of the world would be like it was in the days of Noah (see Matthew 24:37-41).
This passage, which is frequently cited by Biblical scholars, tells us that this will be one of several prophetic indicators to alert us to the Second Coming of our Lord.
This is what Peter said our world would be like in the last days:
2 Peter 3:2-10
New Living Translation (NLT)
2 I want you to remember what the holy prophets said long ago and what our Lord and Savior commanded through your apostles.
3 Most importantly, I want to remind you that in the last days scoffers will come, mocking the truth and following their own desires. 4 They will say, “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors, everything has remained the same since the world was first created.”
5 They deliberately forget that God made the heavens long ago by the word of his command, and he brought the earth out from the water and surrounded it with water.
6 Then he used the water to destroy the ancient world with a mighty flood.
7 And by the same word, the present heavens and earth have been stored up for fire. They are being kept for the day of judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed.
8 But you must not forget this one thing, dear friends: A day is like a thousand years to the Lord, and a thousand years is like a day.
9 The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake.
He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. Then the heavens will pass away with a terrible noise, and the very elements themselves will disappear in fire, and the earth and everything on it will be found to deserve judgment.
Peter had just told us in the previous chapter (2 Pet 2:5), that God did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, “a preacher of righteousness,” with seven others, when He brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly.
So we are told here that “Noah was a preacher of righteousness,” indicating that he was a preacher who warned the people of his day of God’s coming judgment.
We can also assume from this verse that since Noah was a preacher of righteousness, that he was proclaiming God’s truth in some form to the people of his day; and given his godly character, we can assume Noah preached about the approaching flood and the need for them to repent.
Furthermore, offering the world such a warning would be in keeping with God’s character, since God typically gives opportunity for repentance prior to His judgments.
If Noah did warn the world, the world obviously chose to ignore that warnings, because the Bible teaches that the world was taken by surprise (as a thief in the night) when the flood came; and we know from the record of scriptures that of the entire world population, of that time, only eight souls we’re saved, of Noah’s immediate family.
The fact that the world was caught off guard by the flood does not prove that Noah never preached concerning the coming judgment. It only tells us that the world paid no attention to his warnings.
Obviously we can see that this is the same situation that we see all around us today, among our friends, our neighbors, co-workers and family, who also have a blasé attitude about all of this, and do not take it seriously.
Whereas Jesus said that “no man can know the day nor the hour of His return (Mat 24:36), He did admonish His disciples that they were responsible to know the prophetic times and seasons, for He said that the generation that would see all of these things come to pass, as outlined in the Bible – the first being the rebirth of the nation of Israel – that that generation would not pass away before He returned.
32 Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.
33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
34 Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
