That is right, God won't destroy the earth with a flood again.Because the next time God
will destroy the earth with fire!

If you read 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, you'll see that it is very clear; the Lord will not return until the falling away [apostasy] comes first, which reveals the man of sin/son of perdition [= the Antichrist].

This is so you will know the false from the genuine. After all, the false is so convincing that he would deceive even the elect, if they didn't know about him in advance.

If they disbelieved the warnings and the event came suddenly, it would still come as a surprise.
And in fact nothing in Genesis says that Noah tried to warn the rest of the world.It just says he was told to build an ark and take his family and the animals into it, and he did.

While you are correct that Genesis does not allude to Noah preaching. The Scripture does tell us he did:

(2 Peter 2:5) . . .And he did not refrain from punishing an ancient world, but kept Noah, a preacher of righteousness, safe with seven others when he brought a flood upon a world of ungodly people.

Do you think people gathered together to listen to Noah? That would be absurd, because no one listened to him. No one, except for his immediate family.

So how did he preach? No doubt to other family and friends, and probably when he went to town for whatever reason, and perhaps especially he went to tell people they needed to repent, and God's day of vengeance was coming.

There were other people too that preached about Jehovah's day. Enoch was one of them. And the people were so violent and so bad, Jehovah just took Enoch away, he was, and then he was no more, and he was transferred to see paradise.

If the people were so bad they wanted to murder Enoch for telling them God's judgement upon them for their conduct, imagine they were just the same in Noah's day.

Things are going to get so bad, that Jehovah's real witnesses who are preaching about the coming judgement are hated already by everyone and will at some point be attacked by the entire world. Not because they do any harm or any wrong.

Of course the false Christians, in name only, have a lot of hatred, but that is because of their involvement in politics, and other hypocritical behavior. The "man of lawlessness" the apostasy is fulfilled in the clergy of Christendom.

God's people are distinct, in that, they are not hated for doing hypocritical, evil, and disgusting stuff, and hold God-dishonoring doctrines such as those who teach that God burns people in an eternal hell-fire, for example. They are hated because they do what is right, and preach the truth. Just like Noah.

People have a HATRED for righteousness. And a disdain for truth. Not everyone, but the majority of people. And even those who make an appearance of loving God, when they are shown the truth from the Bible, especially about where their thinking is wrong, the majority of them to, for whatever reason, reject God's word. It is obviously because there is something missing in their heart. Something that prevents them for approaching the living God, although they may make the appearance they do. They are alienated.

God does not change for us.

And he has already allowed badness to a certain degree.

People today who cherish bad-mouthing him, will point to where he destroyed filthy incorrigible violent societies in the Bible. For example the people in Noah's day, the people in Sodom and Gomorrah, the Canaanites.

But every single one of those examples, Jehovah permitted badness until it gt to such an extreme degree it past his point of patience. And he acted out of love for the rest of future humankind.

Imagine if God allowed the influence of the people in Sodom and Gomorrah go unchecked. True, today many in society have reached the point of badness there, but we too have reached the end of a world.

True, there have always been societies since the beginning that were rotten. But Jehovah always took care of them.

And it is good that everyone remembers that only Noah and his family survived...his three sons, and all of their wives, 8 persons.

The entire human race on earth, divided as it is with thousands of religions, and different gods, and no gods, and hatreds. Every single last person, including you, dear reader, owe your life to a servant of Jehovah God. a The book of Hebrews refers to him as a witness for Jehovah.

Everyone alive on earth, whether they recogize it or not, is alive, and descends from one of Jehovah's true witnesses.

(Hebrews 11:7) . . .By faith Noah, after receiving divine warning of things not yet seen, showed godly fear and constructed an ark for the saving of his household; and through this faith he condemned the world, and he became an heir of the righteousness that results from faith.

(Hebrews 12:1) So, then, because we have such a great cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also throw off every weight and the sin that easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us. . .

diIsrali in a comment already showed you how the days of the end were to be similar to those of Noah's day. Because Jesus said it in prophecy:

(Matthew 24:37-39) . . .For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be. 38 For as they were in those days before the Flood, eating and drinking, men marrying and women being given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, 39 and they took no note until the Flood came and swept them all away, so the presence of the Son of man will be.

Notice, nowhere did Jesus say the fallen angels were going to be walking around, or having hybrid offspring. He said it had to do with the attitude of humankind during that time. Which is today.

And notice, the things they were doing, are not wrong in and of themselves. They would be getting married, and eating and drinking. Things all humankind do. But what they did not do was take NOTE. Take note of what? Of God's preacher of righteousness, Noah. No one paid him heed. He was a foolish person in their eyes.

In that same prophecy Jesus gave about the end, he said that there would a preaching work taking place that would cover the entire surface of the earth:

(Matthew 24:14) . . .And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

Just as Noah witnessed to people in before the flood.

So to Jehovah still has witnesses. And Jesus promised that they would be witnessing in the entire world.

The majority of humankind will take no note of the witness work until the end.

That is why Jesus told his followers, that when they came to a person's door, or into a city, and they were rejected, that they could take the peace, of God's holy spirit with them. It would not remain on that household or on that city.

The end WILL come when the witnessing work has been complete in the entire world.

No one will have an excuse that they were not given the warning. They may view it as something foolish and say, even word for word, just as prophecy said many would do when they hear the warning:

(2 Peter 3:3, 4) . . .First of all know this, that in the last days ridiculers will come with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires  and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep in death, all things are continuing exactly as they were from creation’s beginning.”

I in my witness work, have heard those very words, word for word, come from unbelievers. And they do not realize they fulfill prophecy, but it would be foolish to show them now would it not?

But God goes further on and reveals to us that when a Jehovah, through his angels does send a witness to them, their rejection of Jehovah's word is deliberate, their ignoring of the warning comes from them.

(2 Peter 3:5-7) . . .For they deliberately ignore this fact, that long ago there were heavens and an earth standing firmly out of water and in the midst of water by the word of God; 6 and that by those means the world of that time suffered destruction when it was flooded with water. 7 But by the same word the heavens and the earth that now exist are reserved for fire and are being kept until the day of judgment and of destruction of the ungodly people.

Oh, and just for those curious, Scripture shows us that the demons were put under eternal bonds in dense darkness, and have been reserved for the day of judgement. Those bonds are NOT going to be released. The quacks who teach that contradict scripture.

I guess it all depends which side of the Earth you are on when it stops spinning and one side faces the sun for 3 days with no protection from the magnetosphere or normal layers of atmosphere.....possibly one side will be having 3 days of darkness sleep-in and the other side will be having a 3 day bar-B-q.So maybe 1/2 of the survivors of every cycle think the next go-round will be either fire or water .The fire hits before the water hits everyone anyways so only those cooked first will remember the fire primarily however those in darkness soon therafter hit by water will think its only all about a flood.Who knows....the end game is simple,I dont believe Noah was the only one building an Ark...I believe there were many Arks....just as I believe that today many people are preparing globally,just not the masses.Either you believe storm is coming or you seek shelter or you do not understand the signs mother nature is giving you and you seek solace from empty answers given by false prophets who are functional figureheads for those in the know who are bunkering down as we speak.
