The Days of Noah

By Douglas V. Gibbs

There is something wrong with the world today, and we know exactly what it is.

During the days of Noah the world was wicked. God's Law was forgotten, and humanity was on a one way ticket to destruction. God could only find one family that remained his followers, so Noah was told to build an ark in an arid region where it had never rained before.

Noah obeyed.

In Psalms 11, Verse 3, we get an idea of what was going on during those days of wickedness, and we get a partial insight into why God made the decision He made. The verse reads: "If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?"

The New Testament Book of Luke reveals that during the End Times, of which many Christians believe we may be entering into, our world will become like the Days of Noah. Then the verse describes what was going on in society just prior to The Flood. - Luke 17:26-30: "And as it was in the days of Noe, (Noah) so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."

The Days of Noah are said in these verses to have been the same as in the Days of Lot, meaning Sodom and Gomorrah. Warnings were issued during both events in history, and nearly all refused to believe those warnings. Their disbelief proceeded from their self-indulgence. The society of mankind was one of that gave in to a lifestyle of sin and debauchery.

Genesis 19:4-5 tells us that homosexuality was a norm in Sodom, and that the population was even angry at Lot for not allowing them to rape the angels that had visited Lot. To protect the angels Lot was even willing to offer his daughters to the perverse crowd that mobbed the streets, but they rejected his offer, demanding that they must have Lot's visitors. Lot's refusal was met with anger, for the homosexuals outside were offended, claiming it was their communal right to have sex with the men that visited Lot. The crowd outside then positioned to break down the door. The actions of the people of Sodom reveals that the compulsory participation of the strangers to indulge in the perversion of homosexuality with the dwellers of Sodom was expected, and likely sanctioned by whatever authority existed.

Even in societies like Sparta, the perverted hold of homosexuality on civilization became such that their laws demanded acceptance, and even compulsory participation, in homosexual acts.

Going back to the Days of Noah, Luke says they were "given in marriage." This means that the males starting writing marriage deeds with other males, and between men and beasts (bestiality). This is confirmed by the account of Midrash Rabbah Genesis, a book written by rabbis before Christ. The writings state that same-sex marriages took place during the days of Noah. There was nothing new under the sun and this is stated by Solomon in Ecclesiastes 1:9. Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah is synonymous with the destruction of the flood generation in Midrash Rabbah Genesis. It states in the Midrash Rabbah Genesis that Lot pleaded all night for mercy for the Sodomites, and that the angels permitted him to plead for them. But once the people said, “… bring them out [the angels] so we may have sex with them,” mercy ran out. The angels told Lot, “for now on you have no right to plead anymore.” Judgment was sent upon Sodom. Flood water was the judgment of God on the people in Noah’s day. Fire and brimstone was the judgment against Sodom and Gomorrah. The abomination that was among the final straws was homosexuality, and similar sexual perversions.

We have seen the same happen in today's society, as well.

In that society prior to the floods violence was commonplace, and sexual immorality was considered natural.

Death had become commonplace, as well.

In Rome, near the end before the collapse of the Western Empire, abortion had become so accepted that citizens, The Romans practiced “exposing infants,” by which a family, if they did not want their newborn, would abandon their child along the roadside to either die of exposure or to be adopted by a stranger who would then likely raise them to be a slave or a prostitute. Underground Christians were fined or jailed for trying to save the children.

Though not an inspired book, the book of Enoch reveals abortion also existed during the Days of Noah. Enoch 69:13 states a fallen angel taught mankind the knowledge of aborting babies within the womb of a woman.

The Jewish writings of the Midrash Rabbah Genesis state that the “Nephilim” used the unrestrained sexual conduct of society to multiply abortions in the world because the people of Noah’s time were licentious and sexually unrestrained. It was sexual immorality that eventually led to the origination of abortion in that society.

Genesis 6 says that the Earth was filled with violence, all flesh was corrupt, and that the wickedness of men was so great that their imagination and thoughts were continually evil. Every type of abominable act was performed including the division of abortion and the actual act of abortion. Proverbs 6:17 reveals, however, that the Lord hates hands that shed innocent blood.
The Founding Fathers of this nation were largely men of faith, and designed the new United States Government to operate under Natural Law. By establishing our system as one that functions through the rule of law, not the rule of man, they hoped to protect the liberty of Americans, while also fending off moral decay, and ultimately to avoid our society becoming nothing more than like the Days of Noah where immorality prevailed, and freedom was crushed by the communal mandates of those failed societies.

At the beginning, statism worked to infiltrate our society, to rot it from within, and to decay it so that ultimately statism prevails, and the members of society become nothing more than slaves to the government, and the perversions encouraged by the society giving into to debauchery.

From the political viewpoint, American liberalism believes it has finally made the turn. They believe their goal to fundamentally transform the United States from within has come to fruition, and now they are trying to make the final push.

Morality in society directly correlates with what we are seeing in the political arena. Murder is now no longer just legal, but killing our children before they have the opportunity to draw their first breath has become a primary point on the Democrat Party platform. Human sexuality has been taken out of the bedroom of a traditional marriage, branching out into homosexuality. Other perversions have emerged as a result, including men and women using the medical field to change their gender through genital mutilation. The drive is as it was in Sodom, Sparta, and the Days of Noah. The sexuality of gays and transgender people is being paraded in front of all to see, and laws demanding acceptance, and that homosexuality be taught as normal in schools. We are even beginning to see a push that calls for compulsory participation in homosexual acts, and for laws to be passed forcing all churches to perform gay weddings. Disagree? You could be arrested for a hate crime.

That is a way of controlling you.

But there are so many ways to take your individualism and freedoms away. The liberal left has gotten quite good at passing totalitarian measures and making it sound like it is for your own good - and your children's good.

Statism is being championed, as the government works closer to gaining control over every move of our lives. Obamacare, if not repealed, will ultimately give government control over your every move, dictating to you how to eat, exercise, what activities you may participate in, and so on . . . all in the name of saving the taxpayer's money. The total control of society by the dark forces has emerged through political correctness and draconian laws deemed to be for the "common good."

Parents are not trusted to raise their children. The leftists believe it takes a village to raise children, and they believe the village must be directed by a dominant government. An example of this arose in La Porte, Texas where a stay-at-home-mom was arrested for child endangerment, and had to spend a night in jail, because her children (ages 6 and 9) were riding their motorized scooters in the cul-de-sac where they live while she watched from a lawn chair in her front yard just a few feet away.

A neighbor called the police saying that the kids were unsupervised. The police pulled up in front of her house, she was handcuffed, and carried away in front of her children.

When I was a kid we might be blocks away at that age. I used to walk to the park to play ball at nine years old. At ten I rode my block without a helmet, by myself, four blocks to the Big D Supermarket to buy my baseball cards. My parents weren't being bad parents, they were encouraging my independence of which I would need as an adult so that I was not dependent upon anyone, or any government program.

The Environmental Protection Agency is trying to create law through a regulatory mandate that requires consumers to buy at least four gallons of gasoline when purchasing from stations with hoses containing 10 percent and 15 percent ethanol-blended fuel.

Republicans in the House of Representatives criticized the agency’s approval of the sale of gasoline containing 15 volume percent ethanol.

“The EPA has no business telling Americans how much fuel they must purchase,” the letter from Republican committee members Jim Sensenbrenner of Wisconsin and Chip Cravaack of Minnesota.

Mr. Sensenbrenner should have added that the federal government has no authority to dictate to Americans that they must buy a minimum amount of fuel. Then again, the Obamacare mandate that people must purchase insurance has opened Pandora's Box, and we will see mandates like this more and more as a result.

“What if a rider doesn’t have a motorcycle with a four gallon tank?” Sensenbrenner asked in a statement. “Or if someone wants to fill a canister for their lawnmower or outboard boat engine, but it only holds 2 or 3 gallons? Or what if an American, struggling in this economy, just can’t afford 4 gallons of gas?”

Regarding recent riots emerging throughout the Middle East and North Africa, where the followers of the false prophet Muhammad committed an act of war against the United States in various locations with attacks against American embassies and consulates, and note that these attacks were pre-planned and timed to coincide with the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the liberal press is so unable to recognize the evil of Islam that they won't even claim the riots have anything to do with 9/11.  Liberals are unable to admit that the Muslims hat America because of the fact that Islam is an intolerant political ideology that hates us, and commits atrocities against us, simply because we are not Muslim, and they believe themselves to be so superior that attacks against us are of no consequence to them.

The liberals, rather than recognize the obvious truth, blame the attacks on an anti-Muslim film. That is the excuse Islam is using, and the Neville Chamberlains of the Democrat Party have fallen for it.

New evidence is now emerging that the warnings came long before the riots began, they were coordinated, and that it was all about 9/11, and not the film. Yet, the liberal left has decided to arrest the filmmaker, and is pressuring that the You Tube version be censored. Apparently the freedom of speech is an enemy to the statists in charge of government as well.

Could you imagine the outcry if an anti-Christian film received such totalitarian actions against it by the federal government?

Meanwhile, Obama has put his campaign above the death of the American ambassador and SEALS in Libya, and the fact that in Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, Yemen, and various other locations, Islam has committed acts of war against the United States - as well as on the day the bodies of those killed in Libya arrived home.

Michelle Obama has ignored the threat of terrorism being committed by the followers of Islam completely, calling Obesity a larger threat to the security of this nation.

Allies of Michelle Obama's thinking believes their "morality" is so important that government must force it upon people, regardless of what they think. Mayor Bloomberg in New City has been acting upon that insanity.

I am starting to think this is nothing like the Days of Noah. . . it is something much much worse.

Sadly, Mr. Gibbs, I think we haven't seen anything yet.
