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. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. Genesis 6:5-8
- Licentiousness raging.
- Violence prevailing.
- Corruption deepening;
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage,
until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mattthew 24:37-39
People will be:
- money-loving, proud,
- arrogant, insulting, disobedient to parents,
- ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable,
- slanderous, uncontrolled, brutal, hateful of good, traitorous,
- headstrong, swollen with conceit, loving pleasure rather than God, as they retain the outer form of religion but deny its power.

“The abuser’s continuous degrading comments, insults and projections of blame diminish the victims sense of self.” “Emotional Abuse” Marti Tamm Loring
Futile attempts to flail out verbally in self defense run up against the abuser’s denial of accountability and projection of blame on the individual.” From Loring
Friends the exaltation of psychologically promoted self-realization is creating an accountability-less society. Who are these answering to? Only themselves, only themselves. Yes, the powers prior exhibited as interrogation methods by ungodly governments are kept alive by

“Patty Hearst was kidnapped by the Simbionese Liberation army and she was first imprisoned in locked closet. when she expressed political agreement with her captors, they allowed her to spend more time out of the closet.

Beloved, “Consider Him that endured such contradiction of sinners against Himself lest you be weary and faint in your minds.” Hebrews 12:3
Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather has risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words! Amen
1 Thessalonians 4:18.
