As in the days of Noah


 “And as the days of Noaḥ, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be.
 “For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the תּבה (têvâh or boat)
and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be” (Mat 24:37-39) (see also Luke 17:26-27)

We have all read or at least heard the story of Noah and the flood that destroyed the earth and all its inhabitance, where only Noah and his wife and his sons and their wives were saved, along with all the kinds of animals in the world. This was an awesome event.

Now Y’hoshua the Mashiyach prophesied and revealed to us that the day of his return, it will be as the days of Noah. Now what does that really mean and is the world as in the days of Noah now, just before the return of the Mashiyach?

Let us see what it was like in the days of Noah. And יהוה (YHWH) saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually(Gen 6:5). We can also see from the verse at the top that they were eating and drinking and marrying and giving in marriage! Does this sound evil to you? You see, we have grown up with the wrong idea of what is evil. When we hear the word “evil” we usually think of magic, Satanism, idol worship, slaughtering cats, drinking blood, witches etc. yes these are all evil, but those are the obvious ones. But that is clearly not what everyone was doing in the time of Noah, but still they were looked at as being evil continually. So what does the Almighty consider as evil?

But the men of Seḏom were evil and sinned before יהוה (YHWH), exceedingly so” (Gen 13:13)

 “No one is greater in this house than I, and he has not withheld whatever from me but you, because you are his wife. And how shall I do this great evil and sin against Elohim?” (Gen 39:9)

And He said to them, “Is it right to do good on the Sabbath, or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent” (Mar 3:4)

So as we can see, Evil is the opposite of good, and also defined as sin. So it is very clear that sin is evil. What is sin? Sin is the transgression of the Instruction of YHWH. So if we disobey the Torah of YHWH, we are doing evil in His eyes. Now in the days of Noah, those who were doing evil continuously, were not keeping the Instruction of YHWH.

Now let us compare this to the people of today. Are they keeping the Instruction of YHWH or are their inclinations of the thoughts of their hearts only evil continually? I will break it up in groups of peoples. I am not going to mention Satanists, pagans, spiritists, Freemasons etc. which are the obvious ones.

Atheists:
Now this is an interesting group. I started with atheists as this will also build the foundation for the rest of the groups. Now one thing that is to be remembered is that anything that is not done to the esteem of YHWH is evil. With this in mind, we can see that an atheist does not give any esteem to YHWH as he does not believe in YHWH. All the esteem goes to the atheist, which is evil.

Now even if an atheist is kind, helps an old lady across the street or even dedicates their entire lives caring for orphans, it is evil in the eyes of YHWH as the esteem they do it in is their own, NOT YHWH’s

So as we can see, an atheist’s inclination of his thoughts of his heart is evil continuously.

Hindu’s:
Here is a religion that has many “gods”, does the Instruction of YHWH not speak against this? You have no other mighty ones against My face.
You do not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of that which is in the heavens above, or which is in the earth beneath, or which is in the waters under the earth” (Exodus 20:3-4). Clearly Hinduism is a great example of what the Instruction of YHWH was talking about. Hinduism is full of images and likenesses of things from this world.

So we can clearly derive from this that the Hindu’s are also doing evil continuously.

Buddhists:
Buddhism is not so much a religion, but more like a way of life. Although, they try live a peaceful life doing what is good in their own eyes, it is not good in the eyes of YHWH. Once again, they do not give any esteem to YHWH.

So Buddhists too are doing evil continuously.

Muslims:
Now Muslims are mostly Arabs. The Arab nation is also know as the Yishmaelites. This is because the father of the nation is Yishmael, who is the first born son of Abraham. The Muslim religion, which is the second largest religion in the world, comes from Mohammed, who originally was a student of Torah, but was later kicked out of his assembly because of his violent tactics for conversion. He held a grudge against the Jews and started his own religion, under the watchful eye of a Catholic nun whom he married. Mohammed claimed to see “Alah” in a vision who narrated the Koran to him. Now Mohammed was illiterate, so he hired scribes to write it down for him.

Now because Mohammed turned away from the Instruction of YHWH and made his own laws, he did evil in the eyes of YHWH.

So those following the Muslim faith (Islam) are doing evil in the eyes of YHWH continuously.

Christians:
Christianity is the largest religion in the world and is one of the most controversial. Just like the Jews, they believe that theirs is the true faith of the Scriptures. But the fact of the matter is that the Christian Bible comes from Scriptures that have been mistranslated, changed and other doctrines inserted into it. The Christian church has been built upon the personal doctrines of the people who built the church. It was also infused with paganism to attract the pagan worshipers too. Basically what Christianity of today is, is ancient paganism mixed with peoples opinions of the Bible. Almost ALL the traditions and practices in the Christian church originates from ancient paganism, which is still practiced today. This has caused that the Instruction of YHWH has been thrown out of the window. The sad part about this is that the majority of the followers of 

Christianity believe that what they believe is the true faith of YHWH because they have been so brainwashed into believing it. Many Christians who seek the truth for themselves realize that the teachings of the church are not Scripturally correct and leave the church. many fall into other groups that seem to know the truth but in fact is just following another mans doctrines. One must seek for yourself in Scripture, even go as far back to the original writings as possible, and not listen to any man. If any doctrine does not fall in line with the Torah, then you can be very sure that it is a false doctrine!

So we can see that the Christians are also doing evil in the eyes of YHWH continuously.

Judaism:
Now this is an interesting religion. There are also different sections of this religion, just like Christianity. Judaism is one of the most persecuted religions in the world. Israel is known to be the nation of YHWH. The Instruction of YHWH (Torah) was given to them. However, the fact of the matter is that Judaism is a religion. Even though they learn Torah very strictly from childbirth, later they also go into the study of the Talmud which adds thousands of rabbinical laws that overrules the Torah. Also a lot of sections also add Kabala, which is the Jewish esoteric mysticism. They also do not believe that Y’hoshua was the Messiah. This poses a big problem: and every tongue should confess that יהושע (Yehoshua) Messiah is Master, to the esteem of Elohim the Father” (Phil 2:11)
 “Here is the endurance of the set-apart ones, here are those guarding the commands of Elohim and the belief of יהושע (Y’hoshua)” (Rev 14:12). You see, those who are the Set Apart Believers are those who guard to do the Instruction of YHWH and believe in His Son Y’hoshua the Mashiyach.

So as we can see, most of the Jews, if not all, are doing evil in the eyes of YHWH.

We have now covered Satanism, Atheism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity and Judaism. That covers everyone one the earth. Or does it? Who is left? “Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it.
“Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed which leads to life, and there are few who find it” (Mat 7:13-14). The path of the righteous is the most difficult path and there are only a few that find it. Those that guard to keep the Commands of YHWH and have the testimony of Y’hoshua are the Set Apart Believers. The reason that they are the most persecuted people, is because they are labeled as “legalists” by the Christian church, and also because they have the testimony of Y’hoshua, the Jews reject them too. They are also rejected by the rest of the world and its religions. “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you” (John 15:18). And you shall be hated by all for My Name’s sake. But he who shall have endured to the end shall be saved” (Mat 10:22). Blessed are you when men shall hate you, and when they shall cut you off, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as wicked, for the sake of the Son of Aḏam(Luke 6:22).

So as you can see, it is the same today as it was in the days of Noah. And there remains a small remnant of the true faith in YHWH. “Unless יהוה (YHWH) of hosts had left to us a small remnant, we would have become like Seḏom, we would have been made like Amorah” (Isa 1:9). “And in that day it shall be that the remnant of Yisra’ĕl, and those who have escaped of the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, never again lean upon him who defeated them, but shall lean upon יהוה (YHWH), the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl, in truth” (Isa 10:20)

Noah, who was righteous, was warned and told what was going to happen. He also had a very good idea of when it will happen. Just like Noah knew when, The Set Apart Believers have been given signs to look out for to know when the end will be. We are commanded to stay awake and watch for the return of the Mashiyach ben Dawid. See, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who is staying awake and guarding his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” (Rev 16:15)
By belief, Noaḥ, having been warned of what was yet unseen, having feared, prepared a boat to save his house, through which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to belief” (Heb 11:7). Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming. And know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Because of this, be ready too, for the Son of Aḏam is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him” (Mat 24:42-44)
