AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH
A. The “Days of Noah” - Luke 17:26-27 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.
B. Those will be the most wicked and spiritually careless days ever
C. The “Days of Noah” that Jesus referred to were not the days before the rapture, but the days preceding His second coming
-think of how evil and careless this world will become after the rapture
D. We are in the days leading up to those days and many Christians are getting caught up in it
E. Noah was a “Just man”, “Perfect in his generation” and “walked with God”
-signs of last days - hearts of many grow cold, evil men and seducers become worse, perilous times
F. We are encouraged by Noah to live a godly life in an ungodly world.

III. NOAH BROUGHT REST TO THE LAND
A. The meaning of Noah’s name - Gen 5:28-29 And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son: And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.
B. Noah’s life brought a rest to the earth from the curse of sin which would have destroyed humanity
C. Noah is a type of Christ .
-1 Pet 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
D. Just as Noah’s life brought a rest to the earth from sin, Christ brings rest to the soul of man
E. Every time the church reaches a soul with Christ, that soul gains a rest from the destruction of sin

IV. NOAH DIDN’T GIVE UP
A. God told Noah to build an ark - 540’L x 90’W x 54’H
B. The ark had to be built to God’s specific details without power tools and precut, treated lumber
C. During this time Noah was mocked, ridiculed, called crazy and insane, etc (it had never rained)
D. For over 100 years Noah labored, not quitting, not getting discouraged and only 8 people were saved
E. Noah’s work encourages us to be faithful to what called us called us to do, don’t give up
-we may be ridiculed and
mocked for what we believe and for what the Word of God teaches but we must be faithful to it
-Jude 1:17-18 But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ; How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
-2 Pet 3:3-4 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
F. Noah didn’t quit, because he believed what God told him
-Heb 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.

V. CONCLUSIONA. Don’t give in to the spiritually careless attitude of the world
B. That’s what happened in the days leading up to Noah
C. The sons of God, morally pure people, began to give in to the spirit of the age (1-4)
D. Just as Noah built a vessel that enabled his family to escape the judgment of God, Christ is building a vessel that will escape the judgment that is to come
-1 Cor 3:9 For we are labourers together with God:...
-we are working on a vessel that will escape the judgment to come
E. Keep on working for God, it will pay off in the end

As Victor Ayodeji said, we surely need the grace of God to keep us standing till He comes. Truly, these are the days of Noah. It is just like the bible describes it. @ Azamegbe....We may not know the very exact hour, but we surely know the time. It is just like when it is about to rain. You will see the sign that rain is coming but you do not know the exact minute.

Good word brother.! As it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be in the days of the Son of Man!!! In Noe's time the word says that the heart of man was only on evil continually and that the culture was one of gross immorality and sexual perversions. I don't how things are there, but here in America, things are pretty messed up, especially as it relates to sexual perversions. Homosexuality and all that is connected to it is running wild here. So that alone tells me that we are living in the last days, and that Christ Jesus is soon to return!

Already we are in "THE DAYS OF NOAH"....Where men are lovers of themselves and hearts of many grow cold, evil men and seducers become worse, perilous times. May God save us from those dangers as it were in NOAH'S DAYS... Amen.
