26 And just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the [a]time of [the second coming of] the Son of Man:27 the people were [b]eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, [they were indifferent to God] until the day that Noah went into the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all.28 It was the same as it was in the days of Lot. People were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building [carrying on business as usual, without regard for their sins]; 29 but on the [very] day that Lot left Sodom it rained fire and brimstone (burning sulfur) from heaven and destroyed them all.30 It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.
Luke 17:26This refers to the beginning of the Millennial kingdom when Christ returns physically and rules on earth.
Luke 17:27I.e. the people of Noah’s time were living lives of ignorant bliss, without any concern or fear that their sins would bring down on them the judgment of God.
