The below is from an interesting 2008 article by Janet Porter, president of Faith2Action and author of "The Criminalization of Christianity." She hosts a daily radio program from 2-3 p.m. Eastern and a daily radio commentary heard in 224 markets and at www.f2a.org.

- Jeffrey Satinover, who holds an M.D. from Princeton and doctorates from Yale, MIT and Harvard, was on my radio program one day and I asked him about where we are in history. He explained that according to the "Babylonian Talmud" – the book of rabbis' interpretation of the scriptures 1,000 years before Christ, there was only one time in history that reflects where we are right now. There was only one time in history, according to these writings, where men were given in marriage to men, and women given in marriage to women.
- Want to venture a guess as to when? No, it wasn't in Sodom and Gomorrah, although that was my guess. Homosexuality was rampant there, of course, but according to the Talmud, not homosexual "marriage." What about ancient Greece? Rome? No. Babylon? No again. The one time in history when homosexual "marriage" was practiced was … during the days of Noah. And according to Satinover, that's what the "Babylonian Talmud" attributes as the final straw that led to the Flood.
- On my Faith2Action radio program on Thursday, Rabbi Aryeh Spero verified this to be true.
What Janet and the Jewish Tamud describe is a period of time that Jesus called "the days of Noah," the characteristics of which are the same as that of "the end of the age" and the return of Christ.
This revelation jumped out at me because several years ago I believe the Lord revealed to me that His return will not just be a surprise event, as was Noah's flood and is usually thought, but social conditions will be similar to those days, as the Talmud confirms. And that is where we are today. Jesus said:
This is just one more sign, among many, including the prophesied reestablishment of Israel after nearly 2,000 years, as we have seen in our day. These are historic and prophetic times. Our daily news media are an advance obituary to a lost world.
- "As the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming" (Matthew chapter 24, verses 37-42, NKJV).
