Man’s sinful condition yesterday and today
By Al Colombo
There is little doubt that mankind is on the same path as described in Chapter 6 of the Holy Book of Genesis. Although there are many who believe man is on target and that he is doing well this day, how apt the passages contained in the memorable book of Genesis.
The King James version:
6:5 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.
6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
God was sorry that he had made man and He decided to start afresh. What did this new start appear like to those who were the object of God’s wrath? Is there any doubt that they saw it as a major upheaval in natural law? To those who were outside the Ark looking in, it appeared that all of nature had lost its moorings as it had never before rained in this manner.
Up until then, the earth received its water in a natural manner, by bubbling up through the ground and within the atmosphere itself. Now, quite suddenly, and without warning, rain fell to earth as it had never done before. Some experts make this claim, although the only evidence that this writer can point to is contained in Genesis chapter 2, verse 6:
2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
So, where was God all the while this natural cataclysmic event took place before the eyes of a dying society? Was God up in a space ship high in the atmosphere watching man flounder to his death while one lone family, Noah’s house, remained safe and sound, bobbing to and fro within the Ark? Or, was God in some far-off place in outerspace, or perhaps in some other dimension invisible to the naked eye of man?
Perhaps it is possible that God, our Creator, resides before the very eye of mankind. Perhaps we fail to see Him because we fail to understand His true and rightful nature. Perhaps we simply cannot see the forest for all the trees. In actuality, God could very well be nature itself… the underpinnings of a creation, built upon the mind of God as He conceived, then spoke the Words that made all we see before us today.
If this is correct, then the manner in which He communicates with His creation is not as we might expect. In other words, perhaps He communicates in deed, in action, rather than merely in word. Signs of a sun outputting more energy than in the past, signatures of an earth subject to increasingly high temperatures, and the spiritual condition of mankind waning into evilness continually—these are the very type of signs that mankind experienced thousands of years ago when God saw fit to eradicate Earth of mankind and start again! We see all of these signs today, do we not?
Of course, as evil men assume power in government, they naturally seek to quiet the Word of God using one law after another. Numerous courts of justice follow suit, working to remove all remnants of God and His most perfect Son, Jesus, from all public places, e.g., buildings and grounds still under their direct control. In due time they will extend their reach into the work place, into the home, on the street corners of our cities, and in the hills and valleys of our plush countryside.
Men and women, boys and girls of planet Earth… prepare yourselves as God’s wrath and final judgment descends upon us all. Remember, it’s not by anything that we have done or by our own will that any of us shall see the promised Kingdom of God, but rather by the grace and mercy of His must precious Son, Jesus.Al Colombo, a servant of Jesus, the Christ
