That the world is now in its last generation of this present age is an indisputable biblical truth. And what we Christians do to prepare for it, or not, reveals the measure of our faith in Christ. Real faith will prepare, just as Noah by faith prepared, and as Joseph in ancient Egypt by faith prepared, and as Moses by faith prepared the people for their exodus from Egypt.
Unbelief, however, does not believe the apocalypse will attend God’s people, and does nothing to prepare for that holocaust. But true faith compels action, it’s “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb. 11:1). True faith motivates one to act and to prepare for that which is yet unseen, both in this world and the one to come.
Transhumanism, the corruption of human DNA, fallen angels, and documented alien manifestations, has prepared the world for “as the days of Noah were” (Matt. 24:36). Yet, the full manifestation of the days of Noah remain to be fulfilled. But the time is near when Satan and his angels will be cast out of heaven, permanently, and will create immeasurable chaos. That time will consist of 3 1/2 years of unprecedented terror for those unprepared, “men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth” (Luke 21:26).
Jesus said of the time immediately after Satan and his fallen angel’s are permanently cast out of heaven, that, “then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened” (Matt. 24:21–22). The horror and dread that befalls “the inhabitants of the earth and the sea!” (Rev. 12:12), will be the full impact and manifestation of the days of Noah and the return of fallen angels and their Nephilim.
English theologian, George H. Pember, in his 1876 book Earth’s Earliest Ages makes this critical observation: “In the twelfth chapter of the Apocalypse it is plainly announced that, before the development of Antichrist and the unparalleled woes of the end, Satan and his angels will be driven out of heaven, swept down from their aerial abodes, and confined to the narrow bounds of earth. Then will all the Nephilim, who are yet at liberty, be among men, and will quickly make them feel the meaning of that awful utterance, ‘Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time’. Then, not merely the demons, but the great Angels of Darkness, the Principalities, the Powers, and the World-rulers, maddened by the thought that they have lost their fair realms for ever, and that the Lord is at hand to complete their destruction, will in their rage break through every restraint, and recklessly gratify their own evil desires. And so, in the most appalling sense, the earth will again become corrupt and filled with violence.”
Dear saints, just as God’s ancient people at the edge of Canaan were faced with the dread of giants and raging Nephilim, so too, we will be right here on earth to witness the same. Do not allow false teachers to teach you otherwise, to compel you to disbelieve the testimony of Jesus Christ who said, “See, I have told you beforehand” (Matt. 24:25). Make good use of what little time is left to prepare yourself and loved ones, when “the devil is come down to you”…
