Jesus said in Matthew 24:38-39, “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 unto 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.”
Genesis 6:8-12, “But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. These are the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man and perfect in his generations; and Noah walked with God. And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God looked upon the earth and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.”
Many think that it is not necessary to keep their generations perfect, but according to what is written in Genesis and the words spoken by Jesus, it really does matter! Noah and Isaac’s generations were perfect. God gave us Abraham and Jacob as examples of different types of families that still managed to keep their generations perfect. All of these men; Noah, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; kept their first family first. And so these fathers, mothers, and children of the second family continue “…eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage” as though nothing will happen. Save the first family!
