I think God knew,no..I know He knew what the future held. After all, we are in repeat from what happened many years ago in the Bible. As I read, I see that many others lived such lives until it became so full of sin that God had to do something. Over and over it happened. The flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, Israel's constant fall..
Why haven't we learned? Why do we keep repeating the same mistakes our ancestors did?
Too many miss on the importance of why God set the rules as He has. The Ten Commandments to help us so we don't fall. Before, God was the last thing on my mind when I was out at night. My kids and family too. I just was on party mode. Only concerned about myself. This is why, in Thessalonians 5, God asks us to be children of the day and not of the night. For at night, you cannot see where you are going..but in the day you can be prepared for the times ahead. To stay strong in Gods path. It will get hard and you will be different. Like me, you will be considered dull or boring. But it's ok. I promise you, you will never feel better as I do now. I have never been more at peace and happy. Even in the last few months of heavy trials and heartbreak, I still feel joy in my heart. Loved like never before. Okay with whatever life throws me because I know the future. Someday soon, it will all be over and we will be home. So my words are to don't think your missing out on the night life and the parties. Your not, I promise you. Once I found the true love of God in my heart, I never wanted to be part of this world ever again. I want to be like Jesus. I will fall and I will fail, but I will try to be and do everything He wants of me. Over and over in John He reminds us to obey Him. That with love we will have this desire. The commandments won't be a burden or dreary once the love of Christ is in our hearts. I promise this. He will help you along the way..you will not be alone.
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.
And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
1 John 2:3-6
So give yourselves to God. Stand against the devil, and he will run away from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. You are sinners, so clean sin out of your lives.You are trying to follow God and the world at the same time. Make your thinking pure. Be sad, be sorry, and cry! Change your laughter into crying. Change your joy into sadness. Be humble before the Lord, and he will make you great.
You are all children of the light and children of the day. We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
1 Thess 5:5
