It would be difficult to devise a sentence that would more effectively portray the corruption of humanity than does Genesis 6:5. Mankind was totally depraved.
Before the Flood, human thoughts and attitudes were evil continually, and civilization was rotten to the core. Universal sin was met with universal punishment.
When Jesus said the end time would be like the days of Noah, did He mean that the last days would be violent and corrupt, or that they would come suddenly?
God's Word mentions evil hundreds of times, so we cannot shrug off as a minor affair. If God treats evil as very real and present, then we must take notice.
The first use of the word 'grace' in Scripture is in context with the rescuing of Noah, a preacher of righteousness from the line of Seth.
When Jesus Christ returns, He will marshal an army of resurrected saints who will wage a just war against the Satan-inspired end-time rebellion.
Godly principles are timeless, and though the application may not be the same, honest weights and scales are still crucial for a smooth and peaceful society.
People living after the Flood, up to today, have the same sinful nature. As much as evolutionists would like to argue the point, humanity has not improved.
As God sanctified Noah, saving him from the flood, we must trust God to sanctify us, protecting us from the holocaust of fire which will burn this earth.
In contrast to the world's embracing of fraud and deceit, God's called-out ones are obligated to eat the bread of sincerity and truth all our lives.
The world is so full of lying and other forms of deceit that 'bearing false witness' has become a way of life for the vast majority of humanity.
When the end-time signs begin to be fulfilled, the time for long-term spiritual growth will be over. So Jesus commands us, 'Therefore you also be ready.'
Genesis 6 reflects a distortion of marriage. One improbable explanation of the "sons of God" is that angelic beings cohabited with human beings.
We must embody truth as did Jesus Christ, absolutely refusing to bear false witness in our words, our behavior, and our cumulative reputation.
In the fullness of time, God will pour His spirit on all peoples, including those who had formerly directed their hostility on God and His chosen people.
