Matthew 24:36-38 – (NKJV)

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark,

There are so many signs around us today that this prophecy is coming to pass.  The article and commentary below are both good examples of how we are seeing this occur, if we take the time to step back and look.

Grant Phillips uses a great analogy, in his commentary “Worse and Worse“, of the Fog of Death from the Ten Commandments movie.  You know the one we watched as kids with Charles Heston?  Which in and of itself shows how far we have come; do you think that would ever be produced today by Hollywood?

The Days of Noah was a horrible time, it was described as humankind at its worse of the worst.  Sin, immorality, and hate had completely consumed man (the flesh).

Genesis 6:12-13 – (NKJV)

12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.  13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

ALL flesh had been corrupted and violence was the norm.  I would say hatred and apathy were also prevalent knowing what usually leads to violence.  Life was not valued at all, it was disposable, pleasure was more important.

What does Paul have to say corrupts our flesh and the church?

1 Corinthians 5 – (NKJV)

Immorality Defiles the Church

5 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles—that a man has his father’s wife! And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Immorality Must Be Judged

I wrote to you in my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.

12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.”

Does that sound like our current world?

I couldn’t help but think of that when I saw the article below on reactions to Andrew Breibart’s death last night.

Lord come quickly, to remove us from this world!

If you haven’t come to Christ yet, come to him now, time is short.  Read Romans 10:9, profess your belief in him, and ask Him into your heart.

Romans 10:9 – (NIV)

If you confess with your mouth “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart God raised Him from the dead you will be saved.


‘Burn in HELL!’: Shocking Tweets Celebrate Andrew Breitbart’s Death

When an individual passes away, regardless of his of her ideological positions, one would expect he or she would receive respect. In the case of new media mogul Andrew Breitbart, who died early in the morning on Thursday, there has been a surge of vile commentary spewing across the Twitterverse. From comparisons to Hitler to individuals tweeting that they are content the pundit has passed, the messages are disturbing at best.

Below, The Blaze has assembled some of the most disturbing messages we’ve seen on Twitter over the past few hours:

@darrenfiorello: Andrew Breitbart died? Is it wrong that I’m happier about that than when they got bin Laden and Saddam?

@readjunk: I wonder if the state of Douchery will lower it’s flags at half mast? #AndrewBreitbart

@johnkapp: Andrew Breitbart was a racist, sexist, homophobe. Good riddance.

Good article and reminder in this time when many are falling away from God.  God loves each of us despite our sin and longs to help each of us, if we will simply turn back to him and ask…



By Grant Phillips


Are you convinced that a Holy God could never love you? Many are.

To the contrary, some people ride high on the waves of egotism, either believing there is no God or they do not need God in their lives. These unfortunate souls seem to think their works, their education, their position in the community and/or church, and various other excuses make them a gift to God. This is not only sad, but tragic, because they can never know God until they see themselves as God sees them.

Going back to the other end of the spectrum, others are just the opposite. They are so down on themselves, they think God could never care about them. However, these dear folks are closer to being helped spiritually, than the proud mentioned earlier. Why? Because they see themselves as God sees us all, apart from His Son Jesus. “As it is written, (more…)
