The points I'm making here are A) I'm no Chicken Little, sounding false alarms; and B) People believe the false prophets of the world. Bottom line, if you believed the reports of the world, should you not take seriously the warnings of our Lord Jesus Christ Himself? Ought not we, His church, take action on what He told us? Ought we not to prepare for the calamities He says are coming our way?
"...And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all."
Luke 17: 26-29
Now some have said that "as in the days of Noah" refers to Genesis 6:1, and the interbreeding between humans and fallen angels/ Nephilim/aliens. I'm not debating that. But that's not the main point Jesus was making here. He's talking about the complacency that characterizes this generation. They'll listen to the babblings of Nostradamus, or the news media, or Hollywood, or the Internet; but try to warn them about the Mark of the Beast and they'll brand you a conspiracy nut!

I am starting a series on the warnings of Jesus to His church. It's time we take seriously what He says is heading our way. Generations of Christians have been deluded by the likes of Hal Lindsay and his school of "prophets" (or, profits) to believe Christ's warnings are not for us, because we'll be raptured before the Tribulation.
It's time to open our Bibles and see what the Spirit of Truth actually said through His apostles & prophets- not to mention Christ Himself! We can no longer pretend it will be business as usual for the rest of our lives. The people of Lot's days & Noah's days couldn't care less what God was saying to them, and they all perished for it! Let us not be like them. Peace.
