Jesus Christ said that the last days will mirror the days of Noah. We have examined how, in Genesis 6, demonic activity and wickedness had literally taken over and corrupted humanity. More specifically, how men were indwelt by demons that possessed them to commit acts of rape and violence among women. While we do not know how humanity in Noah’s day got to that point, we can see, from Romans 1, how a culture can fall into complete depravity and licentiousness. In Noah’s day, powerful men were taking women by force and raping them. In our own day, human trafficking and acts of sexual violence are becoming more and more prevalent and widespread.
Hardcore pornography continues to motivate men to commit acts of sexual violence against women and children. As pornography’s influence continues to grow, and children become exposed to it at younger and younger ages, viewers become conditioned towards hardcore forms of pornography, and seek to act out the things they see.
While pornography is not solely responsible for sex trafficking and violence, it is certainly a main contributing factor, by increasing the demand for prostitution and desensitizing men towards sexual violence. There is a very strong link between sexual violence and the use of porn. It arouses men to act out what they see.
In the days of Noah, there was no sanctity of human life. People lived to satisfy their own lusts, giving demons an inlet to possess those who opened themselves up to their control. Anytime a person wilfully decides to live lasciviously, Satan is allowed freedom and control over that person. There is nothing stopping him from completely taking over that person, especially as the work of the Holy Spirit is rejected. The men of Noah’s day were possessed by demons that motivated them to commit acts of sexual violence. This was Satan’s way of perverting humankind.
We see today that pornography has opened up this same gateway, and that because of it, people are motivated to commit abominable acts of perversion, and even violence....some no doubt indwelt by demons. Jesus said it would be like this. I do believe that demonic activity will be rampant in the last days, as it was in Noah’s day.
Is pornography the catalyst by which demonic activity will manifest itself in the lives of men, in the last days? Could pornography motivate men to act as they did in Noah’s day? I believe that could very well be the case.
