Wickedness: Noah’s Days Vs Lot’s Days

Genesis 6: 5-8; 19: 4-11.

Memory Verse:
“Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5).

The people described in Genesis 6:5-8 were the men of Noah’s day; so engrossed in their evil deeds that they ignored the laws of God. They filled the land with violence and corruption. The corruption was so widespread that only Noah was found to be righteous. Noah entered the ark after pleading with the people in vain. God’s judgement was swift “And all flesh died that moved on the earth.” Only Noah and those that were with him in the ark remained alive. God saved Noah, remembered and blessed him.

The people in the days of Lot were not different from those in the days of Noah. They were experts in homosexuality. They shouted “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally” (Genesis 19:5). The message of salvation which Lot had for them was rejected. They were careless and as homosexuals, they were wicked in the sight of God.
“They ate, drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but in the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all” (Luke 17: 28-29).

Are there any noticeable changes in the behaviour of men and women from those days to our present age? Do you believe that the Bible records about the generation of Noah and those in Lot’s time are written for our admonition? We must avoid living wickedly or carelessly so that we do not suffer the same condemnation as they did. Don’t be caught off guard.

Prayer Points:
1. May I not be caught unprepared for the second coming of Jesus.
2. Help me to avoid the pitfalls that ensnared the people of the past, O Lord.
