In the days of Noah, the earth's evil had catapulted to new heights, and virtually no one did what God had commanded them to do. They did what they thought was best, which usually was what the devil had commanded them to do.
God does not command you to do what you do not want to do, unless you ask him to issue a command. In contrast, the devil's only means of communicating with you is to issue commands to your spirit. Eventually, your spirit loses its ability to think independently of the devil, and it does everything that it is commanded to do, irrespective of the nature of the command.
If the command is evil and will cause much harm, the devil urges the spirit to smile while committing the act, which causes the ether to misconstrue the nature of the evil deed. Individuals have committed murder while smiling and pretending to look at their Smartphones, and no one guessed the nature of the evil they had committed with the Smartphone.
The Lord God Almighty knows that there will never be another flood that destroys the earth, as occurred in the days of Noah. However, the Scriptures prophesy that the earth, or portions of the earth, could be destroyed by fire, if the evil continues.
