1 I will never again curse the ground because of man, for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again destroy everything living, as I have done. Notice! He has promised to never again destroy every living thing. But he has not promised to withhold his destruction from sinners. The Old Testament prophets and Revelation is full of prophecies describing destruction of all who sin on the earth.

Come, my people, enter you into your chambers and shut your doors behind you; hide yourself, as it were, for a little while, until the indignation is past. The LORD comes out of his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity. Isa 26:20-21. He shall execute judgment on the nations. He shall fill all places with the dead bodies. He shall crush the rulers across the earth. Psa 110:6. He shall destroy the sinners out of the land. Isa 13:9.

The slain of the LORD shall be at that day from one end of the earth even to the other end of the earth. They shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the ground. Jer 25:33. And He shall execute judgment on the nations. He shall fill all places with the dead bodies. He shall crush the rulers across the earth. Psa 110:6.

Before this happens, as Jeremiah said in Jer 25:31, "he will plead with all flesh." Related messages from the word of the Lord within in 2008: "There has never been a time like this; all men will twist in the earth. Listen everyone! There is a time coming when the Voice of the Lord will be heard by everyone; take heed and obey. I will recompense my enemies. There is a time coming when all men of the earth will be tried. Behold, I bring a plague upon the whole earth. I will betray those who are happy in their sins. Whoever does wickedly and unjustly will be punished. Clearly there are some who will be greatly preferred. I will make men more precious than rubies. I will destroy all men without light. I will fill the whole earth with the bodies of dead men."
