Normal Life: They Were Eating and Drinking – By Zachary Everett

The Lord Jesus has put it in my heart to share this to give people peace in these dark days. We read and listen to every news, story, and video from around the world and see the fabric of society coming undone. In the last few weeks, we have seen the Silicon Valley Bank collapse, the major unrest within Israel, inflation, the fear of Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, and the Ukraine-Russia war getting ever worse even as this article is written.

As Terry James has mentioned in his writings, the fear of World War III is present in the minds of believers. Even those who prep with haste for the coming end seem to believe the bank failures are the sign of the impending collapse of the economy. But as this fear grows, the Lord Jesus Christ has reminded me with the slightest of nudges to share something important:

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark. (Matthew 24:38)

When you walk or drive and visit parks, malls, stores, and theaters, do you not see how calm people are—the normal life that people continue to project around you? Every day I walk to a park called Magic Island, and I see families and children playing, barbecuing, fishing, marrying, and swimming as if tomorrow will come again. No matter if the news yells “war” or “economic crisis,” people continue on without a thought of it.

Please read Matthew 24:38 one more time:

For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.”

It was peaceful until the end—right up until the Flood came and God rescued Noah. I know the events around us weigh heavy on our souls, but have you also seen the hand of Jesus Christ at work? No matter how earth-shaking an event may, be the world continues. Even though Silicon Bank has collapsed, the economy is once more returning to a sense of normalcy. Even though experts say Iran will have nuclear capabilities in days just ahead, and Russia and the West are close to conflict, it’s still peaceful in the minds of many. I was reminded of this Scripture:

And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist. (Colossians 1:17)

The Lord Jesus’ hand holds everything together. Peace will still reign—up until the Rapture of the Church. There can be no worldwide, catastrophic chaos before that glorious event. People will still be going about their routine daily life before the trumpet sounds. These are not my thoughts, but the Words of the Lord Jesus Christ telling everyone from His Holy Book, the Bible, about what is to come.

We’re almost there. These signs show us that here, at the tip of this age, normalcy continues…but the foundation that keeps this false sense of normal is almost gone.

In closing:

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:25–27)

Trust in the Lord Jesus that He has everything in hand. He has you in His hands and knows what you’re facing. The end is near, and the most amazing event is about to happen. Just remember:

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6:33)

God Bless

    I see on Youtube people doing videos about “get your money out of the bank NOW”! Or, buy these items NOW before you can’t afford them, NOW”!
    *we have all seen them right*
    I have nothing but calm and peace because I know the promises made to us by our King WILL BE KEPT. It will be on a normal day, nothin’ goin’ on…..everything chuggin’ along as usual and then!
    Yup, I keep telling people in my very small circle but …. well, you have all see the looks and eye rolls right?
    ALL we can do is to leave letters or a letter, bibles and maybe some extra supplies if you can afford that and wish them luck and pray God will use them in a mighty way…..amen?
    This was spot on……and totally 1000% correct. May God bless us all and keep us in His mighty care and in perfect peace until we are called into the clouds.

    I absolutely agree, Zachary.

    It will be “business as usual” right up until the Rapture. A global nuclear war would destroy population and technology on a wide and permanent scale. Both will be needed for the last prophecies to be fulfilled, namely the assembling of 200 million troops for the Armageddon conflict and for the Antichrist government to be able to control everything so thoroughly.

    I do think that just as Noah and Lot received a “heads-up” prior to their dramatic departure, that this will happen again. Believers will be ready for the Rapture while the rest of the world will be stunned and unable to understand what has happened.

    This would be right in accord with what Amos said :

    Amos {3:7} Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the

    I figure some people will get the message directly from God and then pass it on to the rest of us.

    I expect to be alerted any day now, probably by the latter method, since I am by no means a prophet.

    Great commentary! Thanks for sharing it with us.
