So God said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.” Genesis 6:13
Living on this earth, the majority of people believe they can live as they want and there will be no consequences. Very few people live in a way of being aware of the consequences of their actions. Living in the moment for self pleasure is all that counts.
In Genesis, mankind had grown corrupt and was living in extreme sin and violence on the earth. God tells Noah that He is going to destroy the earth and all the people.
The majority of people around the world are familiar with the story of Noah and the flood. Most do not believe that is actually occurred, but that it is a made-up story.
Since the majority of people do not believe it happened, they also believe that they can live however they choose to live. There are no absolute standards to live by.
As a result of this type of thinking, the world is getting more and more corrupt. There are things that are being allowed and promoted more and more all the time. Nations that were once known as being ‘Christian’ are no longer Christian as a whole. Sin and violence are spreading like a rapid, raging fire across the lands. God is being rejected and believers are being persecuted.
It appears as if God will never do anything, and that the world is winning. Yet, there is coming a day when Jesus will return and destroy this world and all that are in it that are disobeying God. Judgment is coming for all who do not follow Jesus.
God loves you and does not want to have to destroy you when Jesus returns. He sent Jesus to pay for your sins and make you right before God. This was done so that you can have eternal life with Him in heaven.
Choose today to repent and turn from all of your sins and follow God with all of your heart. If you do not do so, then when you die or when Jesus returns you will be included in the destruction for eternity in hell.
Although it looks as if the world is winning, God will win in the end and destroy all sin and this earth. Will you be destroyed?
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that God will strengthen you to turn from all sin; that you will live your life serving and obeying God; that God will not have to destroy you in the end; and that you will tell others about Jesus returning someday.
