Days of Noah & Lot to return

In Luke 17:26-30 the Saviour spoke of certain characteristics that would mark the days prior to His second coming:
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
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

1. The days of Noah are to return. This was a period of time when wickedness increased greatly, 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, Genesis 6:5. It was a time when men and women live for the things of this world alone and deny that there is coming judgement. It suggests an atheistic spirit abroad in society. 

2. The days of Lot are to return. This was a period of great moral wickedness. It was a time of sexual immortality. In particular the sin that takes its name from the city of Sodom was prevalent.  

These are the two characteristics of the present generation. There is an increasing atheistic spirit abroad today. Allied to this is the increasing spirit of immorality. Particular to this age is the increase in sodomy and the accommodation of this sinful lifestyle, as evidence with the proposal to legalise sodomite marriage. 

As the days of Noah and Lot both ended in the judgment of God falling upon sinful society, so this present age will also end in the coming of the Lord in judgment. God ever gives warning and illustration of these things. The days of Noah and Lot are such a warning.
