Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?

Music HighwayDid anybody know what time it was when Noah was telling everyone around him that the end was near for them unless they repent and believe in God?

Did anyone in the world, outside Noah’s family, understand the times they were living in?

Did anyone know that the time was at hand when God would deal a punishment to the world in a way never before seen by man at that time?

Did anyone know in Noah’s day that then was the time to join with Noah in building up the ark? Did anyone ever know it was the time to help to fit strongly together and frame the wooden members of the ship (Ephesians 4:14-16)?

As time went on, did anyone know in Noah’s day that it was time to help bring in a harvest of animals by sets of two into the ark?

As the clouds were gathering and becoming darker and darker and condensing in humidity toward rain did anyone understand the task of completing of the ark started by Noah who was quickly nearing completion by the hour? Did anyone really know what time it was?

Did anyone ever know in Noah’s day it was time to help bring in healthful food and fresh water into the ark?

Noah’s Ark of Genesis 6

Question: If any of the inhabitants who saw Noah witnessing and preaching to them as he built the ark piece by piece had joined in the help of quickly finishing the construction of the ark, would the flood have occurred sooner?

Answer: I say, no. The overwhelming drenching of water over the earth would had started exactly at the time it was scheduled by God to start – no sooner. Why?

Although the ark may have been ready to launch much earlier than scheduled had others volunteered, God would not have wanted anyone to be lost before his allotted time on earth (2 Peter 3:9). Just my thoughts. But the time of worldwide drowning, however, did eventually arrive.

Soon, many nations will be counting down the minutes as the year 2017 approaches its end and then be celebrating the start of a new year.

But, does anyone really know what time it really is? Does anyone realize that the end of this world as we know it will soon come to a conclusion? By world, I mean the world’s reality with its disease, crime, hatred, foolishness, shame, and death.

The Holy Spirit is proclaiming through the saints of Jesus Christ a great change that is coming to the earth! It is not one of doom and gloom as many would have us believe God as announcing. Yes, Noah preached salvation from the flood for the age he was in, but, unlike Noah, the Good News of Jesus Christ and His salvation is today is being proclaimed instead. And many have already given up their lives because of it!

And unlike in Noah’s day, many are believing in Christ and are sacrificing their lives because they really are understanding what time it really is for them. They know a change is coming. The Ark for the World, Jesus Christ, is being built up again. He it is who is coming to save the world from the utter destruction that would otherwise occur if He does not “float over the sea of humanity” the nations of the world with all the inhabitants therein in order to save it.

But, can you now get on board this ark? Yes, you can. Can you be continuing to help in the building up of the ark, the church, the body of Christ – now? Yes, you can.  And you can, through the Holy Spirit, indeed help many more in this world truly know what time it really is!

As I was walking down the street one day
A man came up to me and asked me
what the time was that was on my watch, yeah
And I said


Does anybody really know what time it is
Does anybody really care
If so I can’t imagine why
We’ve all got time enough to cry

And I was walking down the street one day
A pretty lady looked at me and said her
Diamond watch had stopped cold dead
And I said

Does anybody really know what time it is
Does anybody really care
If so I can’t imagine why
We’ve all got time enough to cry

Vinyl 45 RPM (

And I was walking down the street one day
Being pushed and shoved by people trying to
Beat the clock, oh, no I just don’t know
I don’t know
And I said, yes I said

People runnin’ everywhere
Don’t know where to go
Don’t know where I am
Can’t see past the next step
Don’t have time to think past the last mile
Have no time to look around
Just run around, run around and think why


Does anybody really know what time it is
Does anybody really care
If so I can’t imagine why
We’ve all got time enough to cry
