We are living in the days before the coming of Jesus for His church. We see a generation spoken of by Jesus developing right before our eyes.
"For as the lightning, that lighteneth out of the one part under heaven, shineth unto the other part under heaven; so shall also the Son of man be in his day. But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation. And as it was in the days of Noe, 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 Noe 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. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man isrevealed STRONG’S 601: apokalupto, ap-ok-al-oop´-to; from 575 and 2572; to take off the cover, i.e. disclose: — reveal.." — Luke 17:24-30
THESE DAYS ARE INCREASING AROUND US.While in prayer, the Lord impressed upon my heart to take time and point out not only the news that points to His prophetic Words. But to expand our site into a conversation between brethren concerning these things.
WE KNOW THAT THE DEVIL BEGUILED ADAM AND EVE.
"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpentbeguiled STRONG’S 1818: exapatao, ex-ap-at-ah´-o; from 1537 and 538; to seduce wholly: — beguile, deceive.Eve through hissubtilty STRONG’S3834: panourgia, pan-oorg-ee´-ah; from 3835; adroitness, i.e. (in a bad sense) trickery or sophistry: — (cunning) craftiness, subtilty., so yourminds STRONG’S 3540: noema, no´-ay-mah; from 3539; a perception, i.e. purpose, or (by implication) the intellect, disposition, itself: — device, mind, thought.should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. — 2Corinthians 11:3
THE DAYS THAT LED UP TO NOAH AND THE FLOOD BEGAN WITH THE MURDER OF ABLE BY CAIN.
"He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God wasmanifested STRONG’S 5319: phaneroo, fan-er-o´-o; from 5318; to render apparent (literally or figuratively): — appear, manifestly declare, (make) manifest (forth), shew (self)., that he might destroy the works of the devil. — 1John 3:8
SIN, WHICH CAME FROM THE DEVIL AND BROUGHT DEATH TO ABLE, WHO IS DECLARED RIGHTEOUS AND INNOCENT BY GOD.
"Not as Cain, who was of that wicked one, and slew his brother. And wherefore slew he him? Because his own works were evil, and his brother'srighteous STRONG’S 1349: equitable (in character or act); by implication, innocent, holy (absolutely or relatively): — just, meet, right(-eous).." — 1John 3:12
Likewise, Cain's seduction by the devil resulted in his expulsion from Adam and Eve's line and covenant.
In Cain's line, sin grew and grew.
Seth was born to Adam and Eve as a replacement for Able, becoming the conveyer of their line. Two definite lines, one of obedience and one of disobedience.
Therefore, I started looking into the days of Noah in Genesis chapters three through six as the lead-up to the flood, God's Judgment.
Seth's lineage and Cain's lineage intermingled into a fully beguiled societyHowever, as believers, we must never forget Grace and the resulting deliverance of the righteous from the judgment of God. Noah found Grace in the Eyes of God. We have found that same Grace in God's Eyes through His Son Jesus
