Since this is the Sabbath where the portion about Noah is read, I felt this would be appropriate to study:
Jesus Christ said, about the last days, he looked into that time in our day and he said of this in our day,************
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (38) For as in the days of Noah,
And that’s the way it is today, exactly. And that was the end of that world...
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. (38) For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark,
What’s wrong with eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage? How did these things bring an end to that world? Those are the things he mentioned that brought an end to that world. And those same things are bringing an end to this world now. Alright, let’s go back to that world and see what the history of it is.
Wives they chose
And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, (2) That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Which THEY chose. That’s what they want to do today. A black man wants to take a white woman for a wife. That’s what HE chooses. A white woman wants to become the wife of a black man... Now notice again in verse 5.
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Some of what they chose was evil wasn’t it? And notice again, one more verse, a couple here.
The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. (12) And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
So God just ended that world. Did you ever think about, why did God absolutely kill or murder if you want to call it that every human being that except Noah and his family, eight people? They were bringing us even unhappiness and misery on themselves... They had violence and oh how exciting that was. The earth was filled with violence. Something caused it. Jesus told the cause. He said they were eating and drinking; they were marrying and giving in marriage. That’s the only thing that you can find in the Bible that will give you a cause for the end of that world then.
Now what’s wrong about eating and drinking? Nothing at all if you eat and drink the right kind of—water or the right kind of, well orange juice is fine, and even wine in the small amounts, with temperance. But drunkenness is not right. No drunkard is ever going to enter into the Kingdom of God. And eating the wrong kind of food and eating too much is a sin. Now a little bit of it can be a very mild sin and I guess every one of us is guilty of that. We don’t seem to realize that, that’s important. What we eat is important. More than we realize. We just go along with what pleases us. What appeals to our appetite, our desire of wanting to get, wanting to have, wanting to enjoy. And we’re in a very small wisp of a lifetime and judgment is on us as to whether we’re going to have joy and happiness and peace and everything wonderful FOREVER. And we’re just letting this time go by, most of us, without taking it very seriously...
When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam,
Oh today they say that the cause of our troubles and racial troubles is segregation. So the Supreme Court of the United States, in human wisdom, without any wisdom from God, says we’re going to have integration. Man wants to go—you see, man chooses him the way that seems right in his own eyes. He takes to himself the knowledge of what is good evil. That’s what our Supreme Court did. But…
When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, [notice, segregation not integration] he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.
Different people, different families or different races, had their own land, their own plot of the earth. And God’s way is GEOGRAPHICAL SEGREGATION. AND INTEGRATION IS NOT THE WAY OF THE ETERNAL GOD...
By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families…
Or their races. The Bible uses the word family instead of race. A family is what you generate, as I say, two Japanese married will produce a Japanese child which we might call the Yellow and not the Caucasian race. Two Caucasians or whites will produce a white. Two blacks will produce a black. But it was after their families, after their races, in their nations. Now the sons of Ham and he begins to give them and I won’t go into those genealogies now. But there were a good many there.
Now, at the time of the flood, now let’s see. Man going the way He chose, wanted to amalgamate and integrate the races. Now, at the time of the flood, again. Noah was righteous in his generationS, plural. Not his generation. Meaning in his ancestry. Noah, in Genesis 6, in a minute I’ll have it here. Let’s read this again.
These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations…
He wasn’t perfect in himself or spiritually or anything of that kind. He was only perfect in generations or in his ancestry. He was the same strain that he had been. And if you want to check it all the way through, and his ancestry on down, you’ll find Noah was white. Noah’s wife was white. Now apparently, he was the only man left that was pure white. He had not mixed the strain. The family had remained in tact, as God had decreed that it should.
But the others were not. They had intermarried and interracial, brought racial trouble they had racial violence and other violence in those days and we’re back to the same things today. As it was in the days of Noah, so it is today and that’s exactly where we are today.
Now let’s get something after the flood. After the flood in Genesis 10.
These are the sons of Shem, after their families, [or in their race, family, race. The Bible uses the word family instead of race, usually]… (32) These are the families of the sons of Noah families [families or races of the sons of Noah], after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
