Happy Lord’s Day, my friends! Sundays, here on Looking for the Blessed Hope, are typically reserved for praise and worship or meditation on the truth of God’s Word. We’re going to get there today, but here is the foundation for where we’re going today.
In a society spiraling downward, one of the things we see happening is destruction of the family unit. It happens in many ways, but the gay/transgender identity being forced even upon young children now is a sign that we are living in the last days.
Regarding the last days, Jesus Himself said:
36 “But about that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. 37 For the coming of the Son of Man will be just like the days of Noah. 38 For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and they did not understand until the flood came and took them all away; so will the coming of the Son of Man be.~Matthew 24:36-39
26 And just as it happened in the days of Noah, so will it also be in the days of the Son of Man.~Luke 17:26
The “coming of the Son of Man” and the “days of the Son of Man” refer to the return of Jesus. In the verses above, Jesus tells us the condition of the world at His coming will be as it was in the days of Noah. God destroyed the earth through the flood of Noah’s day. Why? Because people had become so vile and rebellious, our Creator God was sorry that He had made mankind on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. (Genesis 6:6)
Our society is mirroring the days of Noah, and the rebellion of mankind today grieves God’s heart. It cannot go on. Our Lord Jesus will return soon to catch us (believers) up to meet Him in the air, while those who are left will sink deeper into rebellion.
Everyone of us likely knows those entrenched or struggling with issues of sexuality. They need truth. There is a resource that presents the answers in a loving, caring way, and the American Family Association (AFA) is making it available for free. View it, share it and encourage someone with these truths today! It is called In His Image. Enjoy!
