That it is told that Noah would give an END TIME WORD AND WARNING TO PREPARE, let us consider the verses that states this:
MATTHEW 24:36-51 (KJV, caps. and comments added.. mine. KD)
“36. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be.
38. For AS 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.
39. AND KNEW NOT UNTIL THE FLOOD CAME, AND TOOK THEM ALL AWAY; SO SHALL ALSO THE COMING OF THE SON OF MAN BE.
40. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
41. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
42. WATCH THEREFORE: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43. But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44. THEREFORE BE ALSO READY: for such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
45. Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46. Blessed is that servant, whom his Lord when he cometh shall FIND SO DOING.
47. Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
48. BUT AND IF… that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth his coming;
49. And shall begin to smite his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
50. The Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51. AND SHALL CUT HIM ASUNDER, AND APPOINT HIM HIS PORTION WITH THE HYPOCRITES: THERE SHALL BE WEEPING AND GNASHING OF TEETH.”
“By faith Noah, BEING WARNED OF GOD OF THINGS NOT SEEN AS YET, MOVED WITH FEAR, PREPARED… (NOTICE THAT WORD… 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.”
To say that Noah was not an example of PREPARATION OR PREPARING is a serious overlook of Scripture. Truly Noah had all the ear marks of one who PREPARED for the coming Judgment. I would like to point out that Noah had only heard that there was coming a day when HE WOULD NEED A BOAT. It was also told him by God that He was chosen to SAVE HIS FAMILY MEMBERS AND EVEN THE ANIMALS. He was diligent about the task, in spite of those who watched from the sidelines and laughed him to scorn. YOUR SPENDING YOUR MONEY ON FOOLISHNESS THEY SAID.. why where would you even float such a boat? There is no water that large to float such a huge boat. And, when he persisted they used him as a fool and made jokes about him. But NO, Noah was not discouraged and was not a QUITTER. He was moving by Faith and Fear. Faith that God would do what He had promised and was going to Judge his people, and Fear for his life and even his Family and the Animals. He was Fearful for he knew that God meant what He said and would do all as He said He would do.
Now the fact is, NOAH WAS NOT TRANSLATED INTO HEAVEN when the Floods came but was SAFE IN THE BOAT THAT HE HAD BUILT TO RIDE OUT THE STORM. It was never even mentioned that Noah and his family would go to Heaven and the Judgment would not touch them. No. On the contrary, it was, I believe told him HE NEEDED A PLACE OF SAFETY FROM THE STORM. So he worked with his hands. He gathered supplies for himself and his family into the huge boat he build and then hauled into the boat the supplies to feed the animals. God sent the people and animals, and SHUT THE DOOR. This is a perfect example of PREPARING FOR THE STORM. All the days the people who were wicked and had been doubters and scoffers, wicked and unrepentant, were drowning, Noah and all his company and Zoo were safe in the labor of his obedience to the God who had warned him.
But let me point out one more point. IF NOAH HAD NOT BUILT THE ARK, a large house/boat, to house his family and the animals, HIS FAMILY WOULD HAVE PERISHED IN THE FLOOD. There would have been no people left to do Gods work and the animals would not exist.
NOAH AND HIS FAMILY AND THE ANIMALS HAD TO GO THROUGH THE STORM… BUT WHEN THE STORM WAS OVER… THEY WERE TO BEGAN AGAIN. THIS TIME GOD WANTED IT DONE RIGHT. I say that It is MORE THAN SPIRITUAL PREPARATION, but Noah had to build a boat and a house to house them in the midst of the storm. God did tell me that He would have to put his hands under my house, BUT HE NEVER TOLD ME TO NOT HAVE A HOUSE OR THAT IT WAS NOT IMPORTANT. You see, THERE IS WORK TO DO… IN THE STORM AND AFTER THE STORM. This coming JUDGMENT is NOT… THE COMING OF THE LORD BACK TO EARTH… it is JUDGMENT UPON THE EARTH to WASH AND CLEANSE, REVIVE AND DESTROY FALSE AND EVIL.. IT IS A TIME OF RENEWAL AND GREAT CHANGE. Many thousands of Christians will be REVIVED AND ENLIGHTENED AND PREPARED FOR THE KINGDOM TO COME. There will be MILLIONS SAVED AND BORN AGAIN during these coming Revivals. This coming time has been called by many … THE GREAT END TIME HARVEST.
When the Lord does finally come back to earth, it will not be the End even then, but it will be the beginning of a THOUSAND YEAR KINGDOM where He and all the Redeemed will rule and reign with him and He will Rule over the Nations of the Earth, until all the enemies have been destroyed. Then will come the End of the Age and there will be a new heaven and new earth. But God is preparing his people for that Kingdom. He is preparing his Bride for the great Wedding and Marriage. He is finishing up all his work, and these are the END OF THE END TIMES.. Things are SPEEDING UP AND WE ARE TRAVELING FAST NOW INTO THE COMING KINGDOM. These are not days to stay home and not serve the Lord, these are days to SELL OUT AND DIE TO SELF AND LIVE AND SERVE THE LORD. These are Exciting days, JUST BEFORE HE COMES. Will you be found serving the Lord, and will you be able to live and work and PREACH IN THE STORM AND AFTER THE STORM? Will your house be torn down and you and yours cast out with the Hypocrites? Will there be weeping and gnashing of teeth, or, will there be hands under your house, power and love and provision to help those who are crying??
It seems as well as confirming that the verses following the account of Noah talking about the Unfaithful Servant is in the same context. The Scripture says that there was a SERVANT who was sloth and uncaring. He was not taking care of business as the Lord, his Master, had told him to do. He was more concerned with having fun and wasting his time with party’s and the world than he was SERVING HIS LORD. He had been intrusted with taking care of THE MASTERS STOREHOUSE; to feed those who were in that house. No doubt if you compared him to find his title he could be very well a pastor of the House of God. Just like today, there are many pastors that could care less about the needs of the people and are having a party and selfish. They think that God does not see them and that they will have time to get things ready. Well they figure wrong, because the Lord of that SERVANT CAME TO HIS HOUSE AND CAME FOR A ROLL CALL OF THE FAITHFUL. The wicked Servant (notice HE WAS NOT A LOST MAN, BUT A SERVANT OVER THE HOUSE OF GOD) was caught with his britches down… he was out having a party and the Lord was very wroth. Now Judgment and his sins were found out.
The Scripture says that the Lord is checking to see WHO IS SERVING HIM AND TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS. He is looking to see and is PREPARING to give REWARDS to all who are faithfully serving him. The Scriptures says that, in looking back, HAD THE WICKED SERVANT KNOWN… WHEN THE LORD WAS COMING HE WOULD NOT HAVE ALLOWED HIS HOUSE TO BE … BROKEN UP. That is right… BROKEN UP. A house destroyed and torn down. Ruins. Ashes. and that the Servant (the Lords Own Servant, not a lost man) WAS CAST OUT WITH THE HYPOCRITES and that there was WEEPING AND GNASHING. Now some would have you to believe that God will NOT JUDGE HIS PEOPLE IN SUCH A MANNER. Well, reconsider this teaching. God has said it here. HE WAS CAST OUT WITH THE HYPOCRITES.
Not only was he cast out … HE WAS CUT ASUNDER. He lost all.
In August 2008 the Lord told me that ALL THOSE IN THE JEMEZ VALLEY, NM who were not SERVING HIM AND LIVING FOR HIM TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS would LOSE THEIR HOMES. He said the earthquake would tear them ALL DOWN. Even the Church House would be destroyed. NOT THE PEOPLE … BUT THE CHURCH HOUSE… THE BUILDING. I saw the church building CRACKED IN TWO AND A CRACK IN THE EARTH TOTALLY WORTHLESS FOR ANY FURTHER USE. I saw Houses destroyed and I heard what the Lord warned when he said CUT ASUNDER. In that day there would be HYPOCRITES EXPOSED AND CAST OUT. He was talking about his people. He told me IT WAS FOR THEIR GOOD AND CORRECTION. He said they will not die, but be HELPED.
Now, the question is, how can we PREPARE? I say that we must LABOR WORKING FOR AN ARK. The Ark of safety to ride up and over the Storm. A secure place. Now the Lord told me that UNLESS HE PUT HIS HANDS UNDER MY HOUSE IT WOULD FALL DOWN. So the Preparation is FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY .. SPIRITUAL PREPARATION OF THE HEART AND MOTIVES. The Fact that both Noah and the Wicked Servant were to SERVE HIM and were commanded to WATCH FOR THE COMING TIME; to be ready at a moments notice. There were two in the field working, ONE WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD AND LEFT BEHIND… Two were in bed sleeping and ONE WAS CAUGHT OFF GUARD. The Ones who were blessed were taken care of by God. This is what the Lord told me.
In the Jemez valley there was a Man and his Wife who had just moved there, spending their life savings to buy a building and expensive land on the main highway through the valley. They had plans to open up a restaurant and coffee shop and a small Gallery. I lived just down the way from them and one day the Lord told me to go visit them and invite them to Church. Celeste and I did visit them and they did come ONE TIME TO CHURCH. After that they were not to be found. One day I heard the Lord tell me, Take this Word to them. Tell them IF THEY DO NOT SERVE ME WITH THEIR BUSINESS WHAT THEY ARE TRYING TO ESTABLISH WILL FAIL AND ALL WILL BE LOST. So in obedience I did as the Lord told me, I went to their house and after the kind greetings etc, I told them what the Lord said. You must come to Church and Serve the Lord OR YOUR BUSINESS WILL FAIL AND ALL WILL BE LOST. They were angry to say the least with me and even told me that they could serve the Lord right there in the restaurant just as well as in Church and that I was being too demanding and even legalistic. I carefully explained, BUT IT IS THE END TIMES… AND THE LORD IS LOOKING NOW FOR THOSE WHO WILL FAITHFULLY SERVE HIM, IN SPITE OF THE ATTITUDE OF THE WORLD AND ALL…. but to no avail, I was all but ushered out of their house.
Several Months went by and I got the news that a tragedy had happened in their family. Being concerned, I went to their home to visit. I found out that their son, who was a professing christian, had been KILLED IN ALBUQUERQUE. He had been shot to death on the street. They were plainly broken up. Then the man said, we were just about to GIVE UP ON THIS BUSINESS because we can not get any customers to come in; we are going broke. He broke down and told me that they had maxed out all their credit cards and HAD BEEN CUT OFF. They had just received word that the owner of the building and the Land had called in their contract and they would loose the business and their hard work and house.
I stood there that day and thought… YES, I SEE. YOU WOULD NOT LISTEN. NOW YOU ARE DEEPLY TORN UP AND CUT ASUNDER. WEEPING. GNASHING OF TEETH. In a few days, there appeared a FOR SALE SIGN on the property and they left the Valley, a broken and discouraged family. Now I say the Lord told me, YOU SEE, THIS IS WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW… BECAUSE HE HAS COME TO SEE WHO IS SERVING AND LIVING FOR HIM. I HEAR HIM SAYING… I AM JUDGING MY PEOPLE MY PEOPLE.
I believe it will get worse. I prophesy that we are IN JUDGMENT NOW. Time has come and many are NOT READY. MANY ARE NOT LISTENING, MANY ARE FALLING ALL AROUND YOU. TAKE CHARGE AND WALK OUT ON THE STORM AND LIFT THE FALLEN AND SEE REVIVAL IN THE MIDST OF THE STORM.
