The Evil Day
The Evil Day by George R Hawtin. The Bible, the word of God, definitely speaks of an evil day that will come at the close of this present dispensation. During the centuries that have passed many evil days have come and gone, but the apostle Paul sets this final day of evil apart from all others by the use of the definite article “the”, saying in Eph. 6:12, “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand in the evil day…”
This is the day that was described by Daniel as a “time of trouble such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time.” Dan. 12:1. It is the day which was described by Joel as a day of gloominess, Joel 2:2, and by Zephaniah as “a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness, a day of the trumpet (war) and alarm against the fenced cities and against the high towers. And I will bring distress upon men, that they shall walk like blind men, because they have sinned against the Lord: and their blood shall be poured out as dust, and their flesh as the dung. Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them in the day of the Lord’s wrath; but the whole land shall be devoured by the fire of His jealousy:..” Zeph. 1:15-18.
The Evil Day
Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke of this evil day as a time of abounding iniquity, a time when the love of many should wax cold. He likened it unto the wickedness of the days of Noah before the flood. That day was one of the most evil of all days, for in it all distinction between the godly and the ungodly had disappeared. The sons of God had looked upon the daughters of men and had taken them wives of all they chose. The earth became filled with mighty men, men of renown even as it is today. “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually; and it repented the Lord that He had made man on the earth, and it grieved Him at His heart… 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.” See Gen. 6. Jesus described that day as a day of eating and drinking, of marrying and giving in marriage, or, more literally, marrying and divorcing. Luke 17:27. He likened it unto the days of Sodom when men were consumed with eating and drinking, planting and reaping; a day when morals had fled completely, for even the women changed the natural use into that which is against nature, and the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lusts toward each other, men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves just recompense of their error. Rom. 1:26-27. A description of the awful degradation of these people is given in Gen. 19:4-11. Not even the angels of God were held sacred to these vile wretches, for they endeavored to break down the door of Lot’s house that they might know them. The degrading sin of Sodom was that they were homosexuals. It is from the vileness of the sins of Sodom that our modern English word, sodomy, is derived. No informed person needs to be reminded that this sin is rampant in our day. Truly Jesus said, “As it was in the day that Lot went out of Sodom, so should it be in the day of the Son of man.”
