The Reasons for the Flood and the Parallels of its Sins Today

Genesis 6:5-6 KJV, “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. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.”

Ellen G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy, The Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels and Satan and His Angels, Vol 1, 1870, Steam Press, Battle Creek, MI, Ch 7, Pp 66-85.

1 “The people used the gold, silver, precious stones, and choice wood, in building houses for themselves, each striving to excel the other. They beautified and adorned their houses and lands with the most ingenious works, and provoked God by their wicked deeds.”

2 “They formed images to worship, and taught their children to regard these pieces of workmanship made with their own hands, as gods, and to worship them.”

3 “Instead of doing justice to their neighbors, they carried out their own unlawful wishes. They had a plurality of wives, which was contrary to God’s wise arrangement.”

4 “But if there was one sin above another which called for the destruction of the race by the flood, it was the base crime of amalgamation of man and beast which defaced the image of God, and caused confusion everywhere.”

5 “God saw that the more he enriched and prospered sinful man, the more he corrupted his way before him. These treasures, which should have led man to glorify the bountiful giver, had been worshiped instead of God, while the giver had
been rejected.”

The rainbow was a symbol of God’s mercy but now used to banner the wickedness of the antediluvians. Housing un-affordability by many while few strive to out do others with their lavish homes and properties. Millions of dollars used to beautify homes without occupants. Idols of gold are literally worshipped and idols of philosophy are enshrined in creeds. Spousal swaps, multiple mistresses, no commitment partnerships, and sexual perversions are seen today. Sodomy and gluttony. Capitalism and greed. Homelessness and crimes. Manipulation and corruption. Human nature is more debased now than ever before.

Matthew 24:37 KJV, “But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Friends, we are in the judgment hour. May our faith and trust in the One True God and His Son be stronger and firmer. Let us remember this Sabbath the reasons why God allowed the universal flood.
