The Depth of the Deception of Man
The Depth of the Deception of Man
“As it was in the days of Noah”
Let's take a new and more in depth look at the days of Noah leading up to the flood. The first time God cleansed His earth of unrighteousness by judging and destroying most of the inhabitants of earth in a flood. This is a warning for us living today about the coming second and final time of God cleansing the earth by the pouring out of his wrath by fire (destroying all unrighteousness in the lake of fire).
Please Read this Before we Begin. Here we teach scriptural truths that are not taught most places. These are essential truths that you cannot be a real disciple of Christ without properly understanding.
Because of this fact you must follow the scripture “do not be deceived my beloved brethren” and see that YOU are not deceived. In order to not be deceived you must not believe what I or any other man wants to teach you unless and until it has been confirmed in scripture and by the Holy Spirit of God to you Personally as Truth. That is your responsibility no matter who is teaching you.
The writer will answer for what he writes but only YOU will answer for what YOU believe.
The Days Of Noah
First we must understand it was a different age of man, There was no Christ. Any one was free to talk to God. There was no clergy, there was no church system of man claiming to be the way to God, There were followers of God but quite apparently by now they all had left the fold and now each was on his own to find and follow God or not. Noah was just another man, but one that had found and followed God, the one remaining God follower on earth.
Now we will stop and look at the aspects of that time and the end of time at the judgment and compare what scripture says about that time vs our day.
As disciples of Christ we must understand that we must consider all aspects of the time of Noah up to and including after the flood did its work of cleansing the earth of unrighteousness to correctly understand the reason for and importance to us of this statement of scripture.
The main thing most people think of first when looking at the flood is that there was only one person righteous on the whole earth. You hear people say eight were saved in the flood but seldom if ever do you hear anyone mention the disparity, one righteous but eight saved. I saw an article the other day by an apostate pastor saying the eight (8) were all righteous but that is a lie, scripture says only one (1) was righteous,
First we must address this difference.
There was only one righteous man found by God on the earth, but there was a reason God saved eight in the flood. God had finished creating and there was no way of repopulating the earth without saving some couples to produce people as there was no way for a human to enter the earth other than through human eggs and sperm and from the womb of a woman.
But there is another problem this creates. I have never heard anyone address this, have you? The (7) seven others saved in the flood were NOT RIGHTEOUS, they had unrighteousness in them. Which means the earth WAS NOT CLEANSED completely and was doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.
That is why it is clear in scripture that since the next and final time of God cleansing the earth must remove ALL unrighteousness completely and fully because none can go into the eternal kingdom. And that is the reason that at the final judgment when God pours out His wrath on the earth for the final time every single person MUST stand before God and be judged for their own life. There will be NO FREE PASSES next time. There will be no need for repopulation as it will be the end of humans.
Each person who has ever lived since the flood (those killed in the flood were already judged) will face a personal face to face personal judgment with God where they will either as real disciples of Christ, inherit the earth and the new undefiled earth and enter the Eternal Kingdom of God or as possessors or unrighteousness be cast into the lake of fire for destruction according to the rules of the age they lived in..
Note, here are two false end time doctrines of the churches that you must understand are not true according to scripture.
There is no eternal punishment as they teach it, the eternal punishment is you simply cease to exist after being burned up.
2. You face God, not Jesus at the judgment, Jesus is just there at His right hand as His firstborn son.
Thus the earth is cleansed by fire, forever of ALL unrighteousness,
Rev 20:13-15 And they were judged, each one according to his works. 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
Now Lets Look at What Scripture says about How Many will be Saved
There are three different reference we can use here.
As it was in the days of Noah.
There was Only One found righteous.
The parable of the two gates.\
As it was in the days of Noah. We know it can not be as it was in the days of Noah, that some unrighteous were saved for God's purposes. This time each must stand alone for judgment.
In researching this article I even found many preachers claiming there were 8 righteous.
That leaves the 2nd and 3rd as our options.
Since there was one found righteous, if we know how many were on the earth at that time we can come up with a formula to approximate the number that will survive based on the time of Noah.
The problem is there are estimates of from 10 million to 10 trillion so we can find an accurate figure to use, but we can show that is is a very small percentage of the people on the earth at the time
Say there were 10 million 10,000,000 . At 10 million that is one person for every 10, million on earth would be saved .
If 10 billion then it would be one saved for every 10 billion on earth.
Today's earth population is at 7,75 billion today. Changes hourly, increasing.
Then we have the parables of the gates and paths. Clearly showing few will make the cut this time too, but more than last time.
At 1% of today's population it would be millions at .00001% it would be 80 million, a multitude but not much of a percentage.
So whatever the number is is a very small portion of those actually alive at the time of the judgment
This is a very fair and substantial warning from God that we better shape up before it is too late. There is nothing we can do for those that lived in previous ages or who have died in this age, their fate is sealed at their death, but we can can try to reach all those still alive today while they still have a chance to repent.
Now we need to look at these truths
God was disgusted with the man He had made, because they were all evil. Not one righteous.
Then He found ONE righteous man. ONLY one person on the whole earth.
Then He repented and decided to save this man and his family to repopulate His earth giving man another chance to get it right.
Man had rejected God and were following man and ALL but one man on the earth were deceived. Does this sound familiar? Here we are again, Man following man, believing their false doctrines,
How many today are not deceived??? Are you sure you are following the one and only real Jesus??
Are you baptized in the Holy Spirit of the one and only God of creation? Do the signs of Matt 16:17 follow you? Do you look out for widows and orphans? Do you lay hands on the sick and the Recover? Do you do as the Spirit leads or as you wish?
OR are you a carnal man (male or female)? Have you found the narrow gate and do you walk on the difficult path or are you casually strolling through the wide gate and walking easily and comfortably down the wide well traveled path??
And above all else, do you believe and follow only the man Jesus Christ that died that you may regain eternal life? Or do you follow the man made false church doctrines of the apostate church system on the earth that professes to be of Christ but refuses to follow only His doctrines?
Here are Jesus words for HIS DISCIPLES, and He is the ONLY way to God n this age.
Matt 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
Following any other man is fruitless and foolish.
