End Times Just as the Days of Noah

In Matthew 24 and Luke 17, Jesus gave us a clear warning and indication of what this world would be like near the time of His second coming. Looking forward to the time just before His return, Christ saw the scene of this world and it was a mirror of what it was like back in both Noah's and Lot's day.

Matthew 24:37-39 ...'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.'

Luke 17:28-30 ...'Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.'

So what we need to find out now is what was it like back in the days of Noah and Lot.

IN NOAH's DAY - Genesis 6:5,11,12 ...'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. 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.'

IN LOT's DAY - Jude 1:7 ...'Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.'

As we can see, the world in Noah's day was full of wickedness with the thoughts of men continually evil. The earth was corrupt and FILLED with violence. Love had surely 'waxed cold' in Noah's day. Also, we can see from Jude that in Lot's day, sexual immorality and homosexuality had taken control of the people of Sodom. And Jesus tells us that these things would be COMBINED and all happening at once during the last days before His return. So does the day we live in fit with this description? YES!

Not only is this world today full of violence and sexual immorality, including homosexuality. These evils have now been turned into ENTERTAINMENT!! This world is now ENTERTAINED by the very things that God DESTROYED the old world and Sodom for in Noah's and Lot's day!

Let's take homosexuality as an example, or 'going after strange flesh' like they did in Sodom. Since 2001, 14 countries have fully legalized homosexual marriage - Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, New Zealand, Uraguay, France, with parts of North and South America doing the same. And the list is growing all the time.

2 Peter 2:4-6 ...'For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly.'

Do you see what the LORD is telling us here? He made an example of the wicked people in Noah's day who were filled with evil and showed violence to one another by destroying them with the flood. And He made an example of the sexually immoral people in Lot's day who practiced homosexuality by destroying them with fire. It is a warning to us that we should not follow in their footsteps by practicing the same sins. Otherwise, we will be destroyed too when Jesus returns.

And liberals just can't figure out there was a cover up.
Once again Carol, the Senate Select Committee on intelligence;
The Majority concludes that the interagency coordination process on the talking points followed normal, but rushed coordination procedures and that there were no efforts by the White House or any other Executive Branch entities to "cover-up" facts or make alterations for political purposes. Indeed, former CIA Director David Petraeus testified to the Committee on November 16, 2012, "They went through the normal process that talking points-unclassified public talking points-go through." In fact, the purpose of the National Security Council (NSC) is to coordinate the many national security agencies of the government, especially when information about a terrorist attack is flowing in and being analyzed quickly-and the NSC used this role appropriately in the case of the talking points coordination. Furthermore, such coordination processes were also standardized, often at the urging of Congress, following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with the explicit goal of reducing information "stovepipes" between and among agencies.[Review Of The Terrorist Attacks On U.S. Facilities In Benghazi, Libya, September 11-12, 2012, U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, 1/15/14]

The Affordable Care Act, or ACA, is delivering on its promise of quality, affordable coverage for millions of Americans. As attention turns to next year’s marketplace premiums, a new report released by the Center for American Progress puts these premiums into context and warns that efforts by conservatives to undermine or repeal the law will result in even greater premium increases and less protection for Americans.

“Prior to the ACA, health care coverage in the individual market was increasingly becoming more expensive and unreliable,” said Tony Carrk, CAP Senior Health Advisor.“The ACA has helped lower the rate of health care cost increases and is protecting Americans from being one illness away from losing everything. Though conservatives continue their efforts to undermine the law, the facts are simply not on their side.”

Before implementation of the ACA, premiums in the individual market increased 15 percent. Now—though premiums will vary by, and even within, states—projections show only a modest average premium increase for next year. The law’s financial assistance—85 percent of people in the marketplaces are receiving premium tax credits—and other consumer provisions in the law will lessen the impact of premium increases on consumers. A repeal of these protections would only exacerbate premium increases and would leave many Americans out of the health care marketplace altogether.

Two big HUGE differences:
1. Reagan didn't claim to have terrorists on the run before an election.
2. Reagan didn't blame a video to cover up a terrorist attack on a significant date before an election.
If Reagan had lied about a terrorist attack and the deaths of Americans before an election for personal and political gain...and if Reagan's Secretary of State (and assumed future presidential candidate) had perpetrated that lie for personal and political gain in a future election...we'd all want answers.
We'd all be asking: If Reagan would lie to the American people about something as serious as this for personal and political gain, what else would he lie about for the same end?
But we didn't have to ask that question with Reagan and the attack on Beirut.
We do have to ask that question with Obama and Hillary and the attack on Benghazi.
You DO see the difference, right?
Contrary to your simplistic interpretation of what the President said, here's what his assessment of Al Qaeda really is;
From his State of the Union address;
"While we've put al-Qaida's core leadership on a path to defeat, the threat has evolved as al-Qaida affiliates and other extremists take root in different parts of the world. In Yemen, Somalia, Iraq, Mali, we have to keep working with partners to disrupt and disable these networks."
President Obama also said during a national security speech in May 2013 that "Today, the core of al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan is on the path to defeat ... Instead, what we've seen is the emergence of various al Qaeda affiliates. From Yemen to Iraq, from Somalia to North Africa, the threat today is more diffuse, with al Qaeda's affiliates in the Arabian Peninsula -- AQAP -- the most active in plotting against our homeland."
Obama didn't lie about anything you clueless twit and neither did Hillary Clinton.
The fact is Carol that Reagan didn't do anything about those Marine deaths in Beirut; he went on to invade Grenada. His withdrawal from Lebanon further emboldened Islamic extremists and made the US look weak in their eyes.

He said we will not tolerate "any" acts of terror right after recalling the original 9/11 attack.
"Any" act of terror did not specify this was an act of terror. Both Obama and Hillary considered a spontaneous demonstration spurred by a video an act of terror. That's what they continually said it was long after the attack.
We now know a lot more than what they tried to convince themselves and us it was.
He can't say "acts of terror" generically in a speech about the original 9/11 attack and then blame a video for two weeks afterwards.
That doesn't make sense on its face.
The fact is Carol that there were several violent protests against US interests in the Middle East in response to the video including Cairo and Tunis. What's your evidence that it wasn't at the very least used as a pretext for the attack in Benghazi? Once again, let's go to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence report which found that "some intelligence suggests" an inflammatory video linked to violent protests around the region led terror groups to conduct "similar attacks with advanced warning":
It remains unclear if any group or person exercised overall command and control of the attacks or whether extremist group leaders directed their members to participate. Some intelligence suggests the attacks were likely put together in short order, following that day's violent protests in Cairo against an inflammatory video, suggesting that these and other terrorist groups could conduct similar attacks with little advance warning.[Review Of The Terrorist Attacks On U.S. Facilities In Benghazi, Libya, September 11-12, 2012, U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, 1/15/14]

Senate Republican Policy Committee
Scathing CBO Scorecard on Obamacare, Economy
Fewer People in Jobs, Higher Debt
February 11, 2014
Last week the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office released its 2014 Budget and Economic Outlook. From Obamacare to the unrestrained national debt, this report serves as a warning of the damage the President’s policies are doing to our country.
CBO Confirms Obamacare Discourages Work
Before the President signed his health care bill into law, Democrats claimed the proposal would create jobs. Then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi infamously declared:“So this bill is not only about the health security of America, it’s about jobs. In its life it will create four million jobs – 400,000 jobs almost immediately.”
In this latest report, CBO confirmed that Obamacare’s flawed policy disincentives are expected to drive 2.5 million people out of the workforce by 2024. That is nearly triple the impact CBO had estimated in 2010. Democrats’ health care law forces Americans to make a perverse choice between whether they want to work more, earn higher wages, but potentially lose generous government subsidies; or work less, earn lower salaries, and retain government benefits.

While Obamacare’s impact on the labor force garnered significant news attention, the CBO report contains more bad news:
1 percent: The amount CBO predicts the health care law will reduce aggregate labor compensation – hitting lower wage workers hardest.
1.5 million: The number of people, of the roughly five million whose health insurance plans have been cancelled in the individual and small group markets, who are expected to renew their non-Obamacare compliant policies in 2014.
7 million: The number of people who will lose their employer-sponsored health insurance by 2024.
13 million: The number of people who will be locked into a broken and failing Medicaid program by 2024.
31 million: The number of people who will remain uninsured in 2024. CBO projects Obamacare will not reduce the number of uninsured below 30 million people over the next decade.
$52 billion: The total amount, over 10 years, that Obamacare taxes the uninsured, through the individual mandate tax.
$151 billion: The total, over 10 years, that Obamacare taxes employers that do not offer health insurance to their workers, through the employer mandate tax.
Return of Trillion Dollar Deficits
CBO projects that deficits will decrease in 2014 (to $514 billion) and 2015 (to $478 billion)– still larger deficits than any previous Administration – before increasing every year after 2015. The report estimates that deficits in 2022, 2023, and 2024 will all be greater than $1 trillion. In comparison, last year’s estimate did not expect any deficits over $1 trillion.
Deficits Over $1 Trillion Again
Deficits Over $1 Trillion Again
By the end of his second term, President Obama will have seen the national debt increase by about $8.5 trillion. It will be nearly $27.2 trillion by 2024. Publicly held debt as a percentage of GDP at its lowest point over the next 10 years – 72.3 percent in 2017 – is still higher than any other year since 1950.
Mandatory spending is at the heart of our overspending crisis, and Democrats don’t want to face facts. Over the next 10 years, total mandatory spending increases by 77 percent over 10 years versus the 2014 estimated level -- including a 78 percent increase in Social Security outlays; an 80 percent increase in Medicare; and a 93 percent increase in Medicaid.
The biggest increase in spending is net interest – the cost of servicing our debt. CBO assumes that the interest rate on treasuries will rise eventually to near the historical average. Interest spending is estimated to go up by 278 percent over the next decade -- from $233 billion in 2014 to $880 billion in 2024. By 2021, interest costs will exceed the entire national defense budget

CBO also revised its estimates for GDP growth over the next few years. It now expects GDP to grow by barely three percent this year – down slightly from what it expected in its 2013 report. Growth drops off more significantly in the next three years, never reaching 3.5 percent. These revised estimates are far more pessimistic than CBO’s expectations just a year ago.

Incredibly, Washington Democrats have argued that CBO’s report proves the health care law will save people from being “trapped in a job.” The bottom line is that 2.5 million people will not be working by 2024 due to the Democrats’ health care law. Even liberal pundits have been forced to admit that Obamacare is “a drag on economic growth … as more people decide government handouts are more attractive than working more and paying higher taxes.”

The President and Washington Democrats should be doing everything possible to spur job creation. Instead they stubbornly continue to implement a health care law that threatens the economy, increases costs, and limits job growth.

Republican Party gets to crush the Tea Party in several states today. They know that that are guaranteed the Tea Party vote in November. The Republican establishment will win the all out war against the Tea Party.

The Tea Party will even still slobber over Rand Paul even though he is campaigning for McConnell in KY against the Tea Party candidate.

Here in PA, our local Representative in Congress, a long time Republican establishment favorite, is under attack by two Tea Oarty candidates. Tea Party favorite, Paul Ryan is making calls for the establishment guy.

Even Republicans can't stand Tea Party idiots.
