Yes, I agree that unredeemed man will be totally unaware of His return. Yet, why will man be unprepared? Because they've rejected God. Also, our savior did say that near the end there would be wars and rumors of wars, nation's rising against nations, people would disrespect their parents and turn against them. He alludes, if I'm not mistaken, to weather changes. I agree with you, Dr Brown that in the days of Noah (current) men will be unaware. But then how do we reconcile the warnings of the evil of the end times to that of Noah's day. I believe Jesus is warning of both. .

Very interesting. My question is then- how are people going about regular life in the end just before He comes and right up to his coming with all of the biblical end times catastrophic evensts taking place simultaneously.... something to ponder.

Dr. Brown - Surely, Genesis 6:5 - "Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." does tell us that the days of Noah were wicked. It is a very strong statement the Lord makes about EVERY intent of the thoughts of the heart of men was EVIL continually. I absolutely agree about the observation that people were living their every-day-life, but to ignore the degree of evil in the days of Noah is hard for me to do. Comment? And, thanks.

I write science fiction in addition to Bible Study Guides. Many of the "teachings" on the Days of Noah are intended to imply extra ordinary sin and satanic activity is what calls down judgment. This belays the fact that quite "ordinary" and pedestrian sin is enough to warrant God's wrath. It feeds into the pre-tribulation Rapture rescue mentality that because the world is so evil, the Lord rescues the Church before He pours out Tribulation judgments. You put the whole point succinctly: people will be entranced by every day life and miss all of the evidence of His coming until too late. Some will even have Jeshua as a part of their life, but not as all of their life, the love of the world eclipsing their need to get ready. The wife is the one who has made herself ready for the marriage supper of the Lamb. It is in the making herself ready that she is not caught unawares.
