One day while discussing the end of the age with his disciples, Jesus referred to both Noah and Lot and the judgment that followed the depravity of their generations. “When the Son of Man comes again, it will be the same as it was when Noah lived. People were eating, drinking, and getting married even on the day when Noah entered the boat. Then the flood came and killed them all.” (Luke 17:26,27) In other words, people of Noah’s time were unaware of the danger that lied just ahead. They had corrupted themselves to such an extent that they no longer cared to retain God in their memory. (Read Noah’s flood) They thought they would live forever with only themselves to answer too. They were obsessed with every kind of perverse sexual behavior they could imagine.
Some 500 years later, Lot found himself in a similar situation. “It will be the same as during the time of Lot when God destroyed Sodom. Those people were eating, drinking, buying, selling, planting, and building houses for themselves. They were doing these things even on the day when Lot left town. Then fire and sulfur rained down from the sky and killed them all.”(Luke 17:28,29) In Lot’s case, the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were overrun by roving bands of sexually perverted deviants raping and molesting everyone they could get their hands on. The same lesson is taught during the Jewish exodus from Egypt. Moses led his people out of Egypt on the way to the promised land of Canaan, a 120-mile journey. They had calculated the trip to last not more than two years, but, something happened along the way, an orgy broke out. When Moses went to the top of the mountain to seek instruction from God the people turned on Moses and wanted to go back to the Godless Egyptian society. When Moses came off the mountain this is what he found. “So God let them go ahead into every sort of sex sin, and do whatever they wanted to—yes, vile and sinful things with each other’s bodies. Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they prayed to the things God made, but wouldn’t obey the blessed God who made these things.”(Ro.1:24,25) Only two people, Joshua, and Caleb who believed God out of the original generation that left Egypt, were allowed to enter the promised land 40 years later.
Jesus is explaining to his disciples how it will be when he returns the second time in judgment to put down the Godless rebellion. Noah, Lot, Caleb and Joshua all escaped the judgment because they believed God. When people leave God, self-gratification becomes the norm. Maybe you have noticed we are at the beginning of a sexual revolution without boundaries. The beginning because it will continue to become more and more acceptable. Perversion of every kind is in our future. It is fueled by Hollywood executives and celebrities who parade their perversion without shame on the screen as well as social networks. Back ally filth is sure to follow and will show up on main street in the near future. Jesus has warned us of such a time as this. Either Jesus is right or we are gods unto ourselves without a future.
