as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the son of man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking,marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day of Noah entered the ark: and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. that is how it will be at the coming of the son of man.
The apostle Paul wrote a letter to the members of the church in Thesalonica as follows:
1 Thess 5:1-3 Now brothers, about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief at night. While people are saying "peace and safety" destruction will come on them suddenly as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. The apostle Peter prophesied about 'times above.
2 Peter 3:6-7
By these waters also the world of time was deluged and destroyed. by the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgement and destruction of ungodly men.
2 Peter 3;10-13
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief the heavens will disappear with a roar. the elements will be destroyed by fire. and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare .since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you'd be? you ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of god and speed its coming. that day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. but in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness.The apostle John described the scene when the last disaster will be poured out.
The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne saying "it is done" then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings,peals of thunder and a severe earthquake, NO earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth so tremendous was the quake. the great city split into three parts the cities of the nations collapsed. god remembered Babylon the great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. every island fled away and the mountains could not be found.and the old testament records as follows,
The great day of the lord is near-near and coming. quickly listen the cry on the day of the lord will be bitter the shouting of the warrior there. that day will be a day of wrath, a day of distress and anguish a day of trouble and ruin, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness a day of trumpet and battle cry against the fortified cities and against the corner towers. I will bring distress on the peopland they will walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the lord .Their blood will be poured out like dust and their entrailslike filth. neither their silver nor gold (MONEY) will be able to save them on the day of the lords wrath. in the fire of his jealousy the whole world will be consumed, for he will make a sudden end of all who live in the earth.
surely he day is coming it will burn like a furnace all the arrogant and every evildoer will stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire, says the lord almighty. not a root or branch will be left to them. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing wings, and you will go out and leap like calves released from the stall. then you will trample down the wicked, they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I do these things says the lord almighty.The prophecies of many prophets written above are about the end of the age. people are being alarmed by the reports from those who have an insight about this generation. Doomsday is only the push of a button away. and 97' underground cities have been built in provision against the nuclear war around Washington D.C. the the Us (looke Daily newspaper March, 12 1976)this is an age of the hopeless and despair people are in a serious spiritual predicament and dilemma. However when the alarming news comes the good news of salvation comes.
Announce in Judah and proclaim in Jerusalem and say sound the trumpet throughout the land cry and say gather together let us flee to the fortified cities raise the signal to Zion flee for safety without delay for I am bringing disaster from the north even terrible destruction.
gather together gather together o shameful nation the appointed times and that day sweeps on like chaff before the fierce anger of the lord comes upon you, before the day of the lords wrath comes upon you. seek the lord all you humble of the land you who truly do what god commands seek righteousness, seek humility, perhaps you will be sheltered on the day of the lords anger.The most urgent thing to do now is listen to the news of salvation, lets study the verses in the bible by which we can escape the last disaster, whatever it may be. The earth will meet its doomsday either by a world war or by gods mighty power. There are many prophecies about the end of the age. whoever absolutely believes abd follows the prophecies will be saved. If anyone does not believe the message of salvation, he cannot obtain eternal life, even though he tries to seek salvation with his own methods such as making an underground shelter, going to another planet by a rocket ship, fleeing to a peaceful country, or hiding himself under an iceberg at the north pole in an atomic submarine. these are mere temporary ways to hide from danger. in regards to this the bible prophesied as follows.
neither their silver nor gold will be able to save them on the day of the lords anger.
Amos 9;2-4 Though the dig down to the depths of the grave (basement) from there my hand will take them. thought they climb up to the heavens from their I will bring them down. though they hide themselves on the top of Carmel, there I will hunt them down and seize them. though they hide from me at the bottom of the sea there I will command the serpents to bite them. though they are driven into exile by their enemies, there I will command the sword to slay them. I will fix my eyes upon them for evil and for good.
Now the time has come to study and follow the way of salvation under the guidance of god.accourding to the prophecies of the bible instead of seeking mans ways. in order to give salvation to those who believe the prophecies, god has shown a historical as a shadow of the end of the age.
On that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn both male and female-both men and animals. I will bring judgement on all gods of Egypt. Liam the LORD. the blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are when I see the blood I will Pass over you no destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt. this is a day you are to commemorate for the generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the lord-a lasting ordinance.some people think the Passover only as the sacrifice of the lamb. such people are those who don't understand the Passover. Passover means something (disaster) passes over you.the plague brought upon Egypt are a shadow, through which we can find the way to escape the plagues in the last days.
by faith he kept the Passover and sprinkling blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the first born of Israel. This means no destructive plague was brought upon the houses where the blood of the Passover lamb was sprinkled because it was a sign for them.It was in 586 B.C. that Jerusalem was about to be devastated and Judah was about to be destroyed by Babylon attack. the prophet Jeremiah proclaimed the reason for the destruction of Judah's attack.
The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. the earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers the exalted of the Earth languishes. the earth is defiled by its peoples they have disobeyed the laws and violated the statues broken the everlasting covenant.
unless you eat the flesh of the son of man and drink his blood you have no life in you. whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life and I will raise him up at the last days. For I tell you my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in you.
