The Coming Judgment

Luke 17:26-30– As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man…Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed

As I said yesterday the world is on a course–But where is this course headed?  The course of this world is headed toward judgment.

1. In Noah’s day the world got worse and worse until God destroyed the world in a flood. “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.  And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart” (Genesis 6:5-6).

2. In Lot’s day the same was true of Sodom and Gomorrah.  These two cities got worse and worse until God destroyed them with fire from heaven.

3. The course of this world today is also getting worse and worse.  Things on TV today would never been allowed in the 1940’s and 1950’s.  The world is getting further and further from God.  Jesus said, “As it was in the days of Noah…as it was in the days of Lot…even so shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.  This world is headed for judgment and destruction again.  Be not conformed to this world.   Don’t follow the course of this world.  “There is a way that seems right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Proverbs 16:25).  Walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh.  Walk by faith and not by sight.
