Luke 17: 26-29, “And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man… Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot…”
The days of Noah: evil and violence
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5).
“And God said to Noah, ‘The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth'” (Genesis 6:13).

The days of Lot: sexual immorality
“Before they [Lot and his family] had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.’” (Genesis 19:4-5).

Rejection of Jesus
And let’s not ever forget the rejection of Jesus. Especially when it comes to the Christmas season. Article here.
Jesus makes it clear that at His second coming the world will be filled with violence and sexual immorality. He also says in Luke 17 that they will be going about everyday life… eating, drinking, marrying, being given in marriage, buying, selling, planting, and building. They will be caught by surprise when God’s judgement hits this planet.
Jesus says, “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed” (Luke 17:30).
The world is filled with violence. The world is filled with sexual immorality. That which God calls evil, the world calls good. And what the world calls good, God calls evil. Those who would speak out from the Bible calling evil sin are persecuted and ridiculed.
“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.” (Isaiah 5:20-21).
The world is full of drunkeness…
“Woe to those who are heroes at drinking wine and champions at mixing drinks” (Isaiah 5:22).
To all my Christian brothers and sisters… and myself… I say repent! “Seek good, not evil… Hate evil, love good…” (Amos 5:14-15).
Like everyone else I am a criminal. The difference is I am saved by God’s grace. It is not my place to condemn the world or be its judge. A criminal can’t point at another criminal and say anything. God condemns the world, and He will be its judge. I’m sounding the warning, and I simply want everyone to repent and trust in Christ.
Jesus is coming soon.
