We Could Learn A Lot From Genesis 6:5.

Perhaps it is that we've been misled. Sure, we believe the rapture is probably coming, and that Jesus is going to show up here in the flesh (of some sort). But there have been so many prosperity preachers, and guilt-based sermons from others saying that we can "win the world", that we may just believe the world is going to get better because we .. make that some .. are doing their best to "win the world".

Trouble is, that's not what God says is going to happen, in His best-selling book, The Bible.

As Matthew described it, quoting Jesus Himself:

"As the days of Noah were, so will the coming of the Son of Man be."

So maybe we can catch a glimpse of how things were down here amongst us, if we look at how things were going when Noah was still here.

 So .. how were things, then?

"When the Lord saw that man's wickedness was widespread on the earth, and that every scheme his mind though of was nothing but evil all the time, the Lord regretted that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart."

Hmmm ... let's think of how it must have been, then and compare it with how things are, today. Especially since the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the "Defense of Marriage Act".

Sound familiar?

When that Court is supposed to uphold the Constitution, and the Constitution acknowledges that inalienable rights flow from our Creator, how on earth does the Court rule that an activity specifically forbade by the Creator is now OK with our country?

Easy. They are, collectively, described in Genesis 6. As is, collectively, our nation.

Perhaps you've thought there will be a big end-time revival. Well, if there is to be one of those, it seems to be described in Joel 2:

"I will pour out My Spirit on all humanity; then your sons and your daughters will prophesy, your old and your young men will see visions."

That seems to be happening now. 

I didn't expect the Court to do anything other than what they did, and I don't expect God to do anything other than what He's promised He will do.
