    Lu 17:26 - And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man:

    From the book of Jasher 4:18 - and the sons of men in those days took from the cattle of the earth, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the air, and taught the mixture of animals of one species with the other, in order therewith to provoke the Lord; and God saw the whole earth and it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted its ways upon earth, all men and all animals.

    Kinda sounds familiar doesn't it , Chimeras anyone!

    Hi

    Also in the days of Noah the Fallen Angels sat on Earth as Kings and produced the giants that populated the land of Canaan.

    Just as it was in the days of Noah, the bad guys will be taken away and the good guys left. Unlike LaHaye, I pray that i am one of those who are left.

    Personally, I think that verse about "As it was in the days of Noah..." is one of the most taken-out-of-context verses in the Bible. However, for the sake of argument, let's assume that Jesus meant that everything would be like the days of Noah.

    Genesis 6:5 "Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually."

    Do you really think we have reached this point? Are there no humans who desire to do God's will? None? Anywhere? No Godly pastors, seeking the lost? No missionaries, living in constant fear for their lives, in order to spread God's word? Out of the millions listening to God's word being preached on Sunday morning, nobody desires to please Jesus? Those Christians in foreign countries who are killed for their faith, they are really only thinking evil thoughts?

    Man is doing alot of crazy thing lately. We are working on making meat with no animal, testtube burgers if you will. We are combining genes and trying to create the perfect man, this would mean that God did not do the job right the first time appearntly.

    I think the things man is doing in a lab will play a part in the things of the end though IMO.

    God bless!

    We are definately getting there.
    Yes, there are, and there was then...Noah. Percentage wise, who knows, it could be the same. There are alot more people on the earth now than back then.
    Yes. But, the numbers are probably less than one might expect.
    No. And they could be some of the martyred saints spoken of in Revelations.

    Yep and not just giants. As you would already know , God gave the Israelites a bunch of laws to adhere too , one of which was "thou shall not lay with any beast" , he then goes on to say that this is what the locals were doing and it was an abomination in his sight.

    Hence -
    1Ch 11:22 - Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man of Kabzeel, who had done many acts; he slew two lionlike men of Moab: also he went down and slew a lion in a pit in a snowy day. (KJV)

    If you do your study you will find that these two lionlike men of Moab were also Nephilim , half man and half beast creatures.

    Hi Brain

    There are those who say it was the neph that created the Dinosaurs.

    And there are the legends of Half animal half man from Atlantis.

    Who knows for sure what is and is not true. I think it can be said with great certainty that some weird things went on Earth when the Fallen Angles were roaming free.

    Hi OhhJim

    Jesus was specific as to what He was refering to.

    Matthew 24:37-39, As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of man.

    Jesus didn't end with this comment so that you can pick a verse out of Genesis 6 and ask if this thing is in evidence today. It is the opening of what He has to say further. Which was:

    For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of man.

    And yes, it's my opinion that this is very much in evidence today.

    We have not reached this point but it will. As in the days of Noah there was a demonic indwelling of all mankind except for Noah. Rev. chapter 9 describes this end time indwelling whereby all mankind except for the 144K are indwelt. Thus yes thier thoughts andd hearts will be evil.


    Re 9:2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.Re 9:3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.Re 9:4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.Re 9:5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.


    Also note the 5 monthe period which parralles certain days Noah was in the ark. The whole time frame of Noah on the ark parralles to the end time but I have yet to nail it down.

    Ge 7:24And the waters prevailed upon the earth an hundred and fifty days.

    Noah and his family were the remnant of Israel which God promises that he will save unto himself. Likewise, the 144K is the endtime fullfillment.

    Perhaps today, but remember babylon is located in a wilderness whereby a large percentage has been previously destroyed. Matt 24:7 has not occurred as of yet.........and again we see the reference to the demonic indwelling.....

    Isa 14:17That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?

    Hi

    Yes but there are fallen Angels in the pit also not just demons. In fact it does not say there are demons in the pit directly but we do know there are.

    The Point I am making is Angels DO NOT need to possess people. They can appear as people.

    The AC is the Angel who is king of the Pit he is known to History as the false God Baal. he is the fallen Angel Azazel.

    The quote means, in my opinion, that in the days of Tribulations and Judgements many will not realize what is happening around them until it is too late. The human race in general will carry on in its current fashion until they can no longer deny the Divine nature of the revolutionary events occuring around them.

    You think that eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage are going on today?!!!!?!???!!?!?!?!?!?!

    Oh, the depravity!!! Oh, wait, there's nothing evil about eating and drinking and marrying.

    Perhaps Jesus was merely saying that life continues as it always has, and that's why nobody expects Him to come when He does. Because normal things are going on. Because people are busy going about their business.

    Of course there are those who will try to say that the verse refers to evil men doing evil things. I just don't see it.

    Note to self: Stop that evil "eating" thing.

    This is a dangerous interpretation and totally un-Biblical.

    Where is your scriptural backing for this?

    1) The rapture may not happen until the end of the Tribulation, even worse there could be some kind of fake Rapture to deceive the world. So pinning anything on the Rapture is just opening yourself up to deception. How about keeping watch, instead?

    2) Why would anyone want to be here during the Wrath of God? Or are you somehow suggesting that those who are raptured will receive God's Wrath somewhere else?
