Genesis 6:11-12 The earth was corrupt before God and filled with violence. 12 God looked on the earth and saw it was corrupt, for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
What is God's view of earth from heaven on today?
What is God seeing in our world today? Is He surprised? No, He has seen this before.
We too have seen and heard through the Word of God about God's view of the earth in the past and what He did about it and yet man still chooses to continue on that same path that had destroyed creation in the past.
The bible declares that God created the heavens, earth and mankind in 6 days and then He looked what He created and said in Genesis 1:31-God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
When God beautifully created the world and mankind, He provided everything in the earth we would ever need and said what He saw was indeed good.
Six chapters later in Genesis 6, God spoke and said He no longer saw what was created as good, but corrupted and evil.
What happened? I will tell you! The people in the days of Noah as the world today, decided to follow self, become lovers of self, follow what is right in their own eyes and believed that they knew what was best for them and not God. That’s what happened and that is what the problem is today!
Right in the eyes of self has become the rule of the day and it has also become very displeasing in the eyes of God.
Because of man's corrupt and evil heart, the world had become completely contaminated.
As in the days of Noah and in our world today, many have walked away from God and has become increasingly wicked and violent. They have rejected God' standard of life and living and have created their own.
God's heart was broken at the state of man's heart back in the days of Noah because of all the corruption and evil.
That same pain that broke God's heart back in the days of Noah is again breaking His heart today as He take a panoramic view of what is happening in our world today and sees and the evil, corruption, hate, defilement, disrespect for God and one another, rejection of the Word of God and His authority in the lives and on and on with one evil and corrupt behavior after another.
A picture of what our world has become is found throughout the bible.
Again we get another view from 2 Timothy 3:1-Know this: In the last days perilous times will come. 2 Men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 without natural affection, trucebreakers, slanderers, unrestrained, fierce, despisers of those who are good, 4 traitors, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness, but denying its power. Turn away from such people.
Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
When God saw all the corruption and evil of mankind in the days of Noah, God declared these words in Genesis 6:6- The LORD regretted that he had made human beings on the earth, and his heart was deeply troubled.
If you are one who have been living a life of corruption and evil, I urge, beg and plead with you on today to turn from your wicked ways and seek the Lord while He may be found.
The time to turn to God is now!! Now is the acceptable time and today is indeed the day of salvation.
Jesus will one day return. When? We do not know but scripture declares that He will return, not as Savior, but as "Judge".
As Judge in the day of Noah the entire earth perished and Noah and his family and male and female animals of all kinds were spared.
Tomorrow is not a guarantee. James 4:14 How do you know what your life will be like tomorrow? Your life is like the morning fog--it's here a little while, then it's gone.
Noah spoke to the people for over 100 years concerning what the Lord said in preparation to one day meet Him and He was ignored.
I know many will ignore this message on today and call it a message of judgment, when indeed it is a clarion call from heaven to earth to all of us to turn from our evil and corrupt ways and turn to God who is willing to pardon our sins.
The warning of God’s impending judgment by way of flood was the motivation behind Noah continue work on building the ark and warning the people.
The warning of God's 2nd coming as "JUDGE" of the world is my motivation behind my daily warning to you through this blog by telling you what thus says the Lord so that you too can prepare to one day meet Him.
My plea to you is to choose obedience. God gave Israel this option and had Moses to repeat it to them and I am doing the same with you on today.
Deuteronomy 11:26-28 See, I am setting before you today a blessing and a curse: 27 the blessing if you obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I am commanding you today, 28 and the curse, if you will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn from the way which I am commanding you today, to go after other gods which you have not known.
Today is the day to choose whom you will serve. Today is the day to prepare to one day meet God.
Are you living your life in a way to one day stand before God and give an account of how you lived it? Be assured that this day is coming to us all. The question to be answered is how will we answer.
2 Corinthians 5:10-For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive his recompense in the body, according to what he has done, whether it was good or bad.
Believe it or not, but when the day is over on this side, when the fork in the road ends, we WILL need God.
On a more personal level, what does God see when He view us individually?
People of God, there is an urgency in sharing the Gospel to this lost and dying world in which we live.
Now is the time to remind men, women and boy and girls with urgency that scripture declares in Romans 6:23-For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The ark represent salvation of those who accept Christ and those who did not enter, but was drowned is a picture of those who refuse to accept Christ and died apart from Him.
If you turn from corruption and evil and turn to God on today, He will take you off of death row and put you on the road to everlasting life.
Romans 10:8-13 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”[d] This is the word of faith that we preach: 9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved, 10 for with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be ashamed.”[e] 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is generous toward all who call upon Him. 13 For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
What is the view of our hearts on today from heaven? What is God seeing on the inside of us?
WITH ARMS STRETCHED OUT WIDE, GOD IS CALLING YOU!! I can only hope and pray that you will answer Him while it is yet day for when night comes it will be too late.
