Noah's Echo

    Why are we moderns so mesmerized as to fail to pay attention to the plain, explicit teaching of the Word of God? "As it was in the Days of Noah, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be" (Matthew 24:37).
   
    Now what was the one chief, distinguishing characteristic of Noah's day?

    Mass religious and social delusion. A gestalt. A loss of perspective. A reality illusion. A false perceptual worldview. A morality eclipse. Antinomianism. Overflowing sin and wickedness. Business as usual. All of the above. I mean think about it. Doesn't that just about have to have been the case? How else could the antediluvians of Noah's day have been so stupid as to have allowed themselves to fall prey to such a massive display of divine judgment as the flood, unless they had not first of all been pervasively deceived about the nature of reality?

    Enoch, the seventh from Adam, had forewarned them of the coming judgment day (Jude 14-15). And so did Noah (II Peter 2:5). But did they hear, and did they pay any attention?

    Are we paying any attention to those who are telling us that our ''Babylon," likewise, is about to fall, not by water this time, but by fire  (II Peter 3:7,10, 12; Revelation 8-9;17:16-17)?

    Can we actually believe that this wicked and  adulterous generation is really going to burn--I mean literally, physically burn? Isn't that kind of naive? Kind of . . . er, well I mean, unprofessional?

    Prophetic?

    Hum . . .

    Wafting faintly down the corridors of time--I think I hear ... an echo!
