Now I want to remind you, although you once fully knew it, that Jesus, who saved a people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those that did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling—these he has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgment on the great Day. 7 In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire. 8 In the very same way, on the strength of their dreams these ungodly people pollute their own bodies, reject authority and heap abuse on celestial beings.Jude 1:5-7
The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.” “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.” But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate.
The angelic visitors at first refuse his invitation, saying that they will spend the night in the square. Lot, however, will not hear of it, probably aware of the danger to which they would be exposed if they stayed in the square. “Lot . . . by insisting on hospitality, he exercises his power not only to protect them from harm but also to bind them to an implicit social contract not to harm his household”. He successfully persuades them to spend the night in his house, and he provides food for them.
Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.” Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing.”—Genesis 19:4–7
Lot, at least, steps forward as the one who has offered them shelter, not yet knowing their true identities. He names their intended action a “wicked thing,” but then he goes ahead and offers his two virgin daughters in their stead, raising questions about Lot’s moral thinking as well. Also, modern audiences need to be aware that the desire of the men of the city to have sex with the visiting men was almost certainly not because the former were gay themselves. Rather, it was a way of exerting power over these visiting foreigners.
Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door. But the men inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door.—Genesis 19:9–11
The angels urge Lot to take his families far far away from the city, because they intend not just to destroy the city but the entire area. Lot and his family are not to stop and they are not to look back. Lot, though, beseeches the angels to allow them to seek refuge in a small town within the area. The name of the city is literally “Small” (Zoar). In his request, Lot acknowledges the grace and kindness that the angels have extended to him, even as he requests even more mercy. He does not feel like he can make it to the mountains before the destruction comes, perhaps because of his age. The angels agree to let him seek refuge in Zoar, and this perhaps explains how Zoar managed to avoid the destruction of the general area. The morning after the men of the city tried to storm Lot’s house, Lot and his family reached Zoar (v. 23). At this moment God brought his punishment in the form of raining burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah. We are likely to think here of volcanic activity, of which there are signs today in the region surrounding these ancient cities. Even today the area around the Dead Sea looks like a wasteland. But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. —Genesis 19:26
Why did Lots wife turn back? What was she going to miss, or did she leave something behind? Shows that when you do not do the WILL of God [heaven] that you will reap the outcome that God see’s is fair to your disobedience. 2 Peter 2:4 -For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but cast them into hell and committed them to pits of darkness, reserved for judgment.
I feel the World has been blinded to all the sinful actions that are being displayed every single day. It is being displayed by the majority without any shame. It has become a challenge to women to see what they can get away with. Some started with wearing less clothes that they were that just barely covered their parts- that only should be shown to their other half in their privacy. Now, it has become a new trend to wear see-through clothing and no under garments. These actions should not be accepted in the public. Whether you are with your husband or not. You are representing the god of this world instead of the God in heaven.
You are promoting lust, adultery in the heart, sexual impurity, and perhaps putting yourself in a very bad compromising position of those that rape and take advantage of the situation. [sex trafficking and porn] Displaying below these women have a heart of lust and of Satan. God is not in their heart, for God would not condone to these actions unless it was in their own house with their husband. [Privacy-not for the world to see]
It truly shocked me to see Steve Harvey’s wife displaying herself in this manner before the publics eyes and then Steve getting upset for them to be looking at her in the way that they were. Steve you should have stayed home and had a very romantic night in the privacy of your home, enjoyed each other’s company and appreciate what your wife was displaying for your eyes only. I had so much respect for this man. For it seemed that he had a hard life, God blessed him with so much grace, mercy, blessings, and favor and this is how he gives God thanks? Matthew 5:28 -28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 1 Corinthians 7:22 -But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband.
Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.Galatians 5:19-21
Do you not know that when you continually offer yourselves to someone to do his will, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey, either [slaves] of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (right standing with God)?Romans 6:16
This only proves that people are indeed slaves and worshipping the god of this world. The image below is a picture of the statue that someone displayed by one of the highways in Canada. It is a nude erect statue of Satan. One hand giving the sign of his horns and the other hand holding onto his erectness. Some were disgusted by it, however many are praising it and accepting it. The city took the statue down and now there are several people on change.org asking to get signatures to have it put back in place for it to be seen by all. WHAT has this world come to? We have idols everywhere. We have a lot of monuments, buildings, celebrities, high end officials, and public displaying their worship of the god of this earth. John 10:10 –[Satan]The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: [Jesus] I came that they may have life and may have it abundantly. https://www.huffpost.com/entry/naked-satan-statue_n_5799438 https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/naked-saluting-satan-statue-removed-from-vancouver-park-1.2000115
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. 1 Corinthians 6:9 -Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality.–Revelation 21:8
I can only imagine it is a matter of time before we end up like Sodom and Gomorrah. For I pray that GOD [heaven] has mercy on us and gives us more time to repent and come to him instead of the wide road that leads to destruction and hell. For the people of this world needs to open their eyes and heart and surrender it all to God and become righteous. For is states in the bible many will fall including many Christians will be going to hell due to their luke-warm love and worship to God. [heaven]
– And fear not them which kill the body but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.Matthew 10:28
-And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.Matthew 3:2
