Luk 17:26 Just as it was in the days of Noah, that is how it will be in the days of the Son of Man also.
Luk 17:27 People were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage — right up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
the only sign
The Pharisees had asked for the sign that would indicate the kingdom which Jesus predicted was at hand. Jesus said that the sign would be the same that Noah’s generation had. They didn’t see increasing cloud activity, seismic disturbances, or even an increase in warfare and violence. No, it was business as usual up until the very day the rain started falling. The only sign that generation received was a pleading prophet. Noah was a herald of righteousness for 100 years, and God patiently waited for any and all who would respond to Noah’s message. Only he and his family did.
The only sign of the coming Saviour is a preaching church, proclaiming his coming.
LORD, make us a sign that people listen to, before it is too late.
