We have determined, as a race, as a whole, that God no longer matters, that He no longer rules over us. Mankind has decided to be their own god, as a collective whole, without singular leadership. We have in a sense gone back to the days before the law was given, where every man does that which is right in his own eyes, (Prov. 21:2) and like those days, those days of Noah, the thoughts of man are only evil continually. (Gen. 6:5)
There is much more in that verse that says, “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark.” (Matt. 24:38) They were going about their business, their lives, as if there were no God. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” (Psalm 14:1) A fool in the Scriptures is one who orders his life as if there is no God in heaven, no Sovereign Creator by whom all things exist, and for His pleasure. By default, if then these words are true, we indeed are in the last days, the days that resemble those of Noah’s time.
This has modified the ministry of every single born-again believer on this planet, we are now called upon to be watchmen on the wall, to sound the warning, the same as righteous Noah did for one hundred twenty years. It is sad to say, but I believe that we can expect the same results as he did, but with one different twist, if you will. Those whom we are witnessing to now may not immediately respond, but after we are gone, after the rapture, or your death, whichever the Lord decides, those words that we speak to them may come to mind, and during the tribulation period some of them may indeed call upon the Lord, and He will answer.
They will realize their mistake of course, but not too late, they will face trials that many cannot comprehend, but they will enter into the gates of heaven as our brothers and sisters.
Your words in these days matter, when they glorify God, when they lift up the name of Jesus as the only way to salvation, when you listen intently to the Holy Spirit and follow His directions. We are the elect, (1 Peter 1:2) we are those that the Spirit of God is being poured out upon, (Acts 2:17) we are, in a sense, the last defense against the approaching days of evil. They see us as fools, they hear our words as foolishness, they will mock us and berate us, they will hate us, and we will remember the words of our Savior, “If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.” (John 15:18) An honor and a privilege to say the least.
You are going to meet many who profess Christ only with their lips in these days, their actions do not back-up their words, and they may also call you a fool, although not with that particular word. You will be cast out as too adamant, as too judgmental, as not portraying the only attribute of Christ that they have determined to attempt to portray, His love. “For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life.” (Prov. 6:23) This verse will pass right over them, for the inclusive, enabling ideological mentality that has perverted the world has permeated their minds, and corrupted their souls.
There is still a remnant though, the Lord always keeps a remnant for Himself. Here is where you must question yourself, here is where you must do some serious soul searching, can you look at your life over the past year or so and see the work of the Holy Spirit in your life, can you see a new strength in you that you know is not of you, is your heart burning to give the warnings, and the way of escape to all who will listen? There is a remnant, there is a group of people who have been called out, the elect. Are you one of them?
