Humanity And Depravity In The Endtimes

15 Dec

The Lord and His Revelation reveal a great deal of things. One thing to note is humanity’s depravity in the endtimes. The Lord said during His earthly ministry, “For as the days of Noah were, so also will be the coming of the Son of Man” (Matt. 24:37). In the Book of Revelation we can also see a further depravity, “They blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and did not repent of their deeds” (Revelation 16:11).

The Days Of Noah: Overview

The days of Noah were filled with wickedness. Let us remember, that only eight people were saved globally. The rest of humanity was drown by the flood. 99% of the human population’s hearts’ intentions were “continually wicked.” Humanity at the time had engaged in vast amount of sexual immorality, sorceries (drugs), idolatry, drunkenness (see the Book of Enoch), but especially corruption and violence (Genesis 6:7).

The Hebrew root word for “corruption” is shachath which means “to decay” and can be used to describe ruin, destruction, and waste. “Violence” is chamac and the root word can also mean “unjust gain, cruelty, injustice, and false.” During the times of Noah, there was destruction—politically, spiritually, ethically, in short the overall quality of life was perishing to ruin. On top of that there was injustice and cruelty that filled the entire global-sphere. Unjust gain, untrue business profits or greed, crime had no order or punishment, laws were not upheld or corrupted by officials, and nearly every person only had evil thoughts in their heart.

God’s Kindness And Wrath

God’s kindness is what leads us to repentance. It’s God’s benevolent and merciful nature that inspires repentance. We are indeed in this era of grace, where God’s kindness is open. The Apostle Paul reveals that God’s divine nature is clearly visible, and He has showed all men His revealed attributes by the things He created. However, men did not give thanks nor honor God; and the down hill spiral of depravity goes on. This is the ungodliness that God has wrath against (Romans 1:21-25).

This wrath is further specified in Revelation, on exactly the sufferings and pains God’s wrath will manifest. Yet, even in God’s wrath He is still awaiting to see if any will repent from their deeds. Commonsense, would tell us that if God is angry with you, then there must be something that you are doing that’s wrong. And from there, you can examine your deeds and observe conscience and repent. But, the depravity is so deep, that the men who have been predestined “vessels of wrath” blaspheme God and don’t change.

We are in these times of such depravity. We need to be aware, and not take part with the wickedness of this age. Check out our community here at Pam Sheppard Ministries if you desire to surround yourself with good people who draw near to God through Christ.
