Marriage & Giving In Marriage.

‘But as the days of Noah 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. ‘ Matthew 24:37-39

In the portion of scripture above are many truths. The passage is used by our Lord to effectively communicate truths in two perspectives; literal and prophetic. Literal to answer the question about the desolation of Jerusalem which actually happened in 70 AD and prophetic to guide the church today in reference to his appearance and second coming.

The Baseline article of communication is MARRIAGE! As people today are getting married, it’s lovely but the scripture above keeps ringing and running through my mind. Two major questions arise from these verses. The first is this: What was WRONG with MARRYING and GIVING in MARRIAGE as well as eating and drinking in the days that preceded the DELUGE?

The aspect of marriage is not wrong however, your time should be devoted to preparing to receive God’s interventions into the affairs of men such as, the catching away, the marriage of the lamb and the second coming of the Lord! It’s not wise being diverted with some trivial issues in this life!

Our Lord Jesus could be implying that there may have been some people who might have been listening seriously to God’s warning message through Noah but were diverted from doing anything about it. Perhaps they believed – falsely – that God’s intervention in human affairs was not imminent. It appears they were putting much of their precious time into arranging marriages instead of joining Noah in his preparation for God’s intervention. They were eating and drinking – feasting – instead of participating in solemn fasts, which would have helped them to humble themselves before God.

The aspect of marriage is not wrong however, your time should be devoted to preparing to receive God’s interventions into the affairs of men such as, the catching away, the marriage of the lamb and the second coming of the Lord! It’s not wise being diverted with some trivial issues in this life! The Second question is, WHAT IS WRONG WITH MARRYING AND GIVING IN MARRIAGE AS WELL AS EATING AND DRINKING IN THE DAYS PRECEDING THE COMING OF THE SON OF NAN; OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST?
