Genesis 19:24 "Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven:"
AND WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN SODOM
THAT MADE GOD SO ANGRY!
YOU TELL ME,
BUT REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE!
1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them (Our ancient ancestors) for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
Genesis Chapter 18
Genesis 18:1 "And the Lord appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day;"
The word "Mamre" in the Hebrew means "oaks", and Abraham was sitting at his tent door, among the oaks, and the Lord God appeared to him in the heat of the day.
Genesis 18:2 "And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,"
Abraham knew who he was approaching, for in the Hebrew text the three men are referred to as "Elohim" and "two angels". We will see in Genesis 19:1 where these two men are correctly identified as angels. They will be the two that came to Lot, Abraham's nephew, in Sodom. The third person is the Divine Presence of God. Abraham knew Him and tithed and sacrificed to God, and it was through God that promises, and blessings had come into his life, and would continue to come even to our generation.
Genesis 18:3 "And said, "My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray Thee, from Thy servant:"
I thank God for the Massorah Hebrew text, for it locks in the sacred name of God. "My Lord" in the Hebrew text is correctly translated "Yahoveh", and not "Adonai". The word "Massorah" means, "to deliver something into the hand of another, with trust". That means a perfect copy.
When the Kenite scribes took over the duties of the scribes [I Chronicles 2:55], and became the Sopherim or translators of the Holy Text, things started to change. In the case of the altering of "Yehoveh" to "Adonai"; what these Kenites have done is strip God of His Divinity, and made God an ordinary man with authority. This mistranslation has happened in one hundred and thirty four  places in the Old Testament alone. It is not Adonai, for God is Yahoveh.
On the next page[???? what next page does he mean?] is given a copy of one of the pages out of the original Massoretic text, which is a reduced facsimile of MS [manuscript] in the British Museum Library.
So we see that one of these three was God Himself, along with two of His angels.
Genesis 18:4 "Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:"
Abraham is trying to be a good host, and offer them comfort under his oak trees.
Genesis 18:5 "And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for therefore are ye come to your servant." And they said, "So do, as thou hast said."
Yahoveh has said, "that is good, go and get it done".
Genesis 18:6 "And Abraham hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, "Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth."
Genesis 18:7 "And Abraham ran unto the herd, and fetch a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a young man; and he hasted to dress it."
Genesis 18:8 "And he took butter, and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he stood by them under the tree, and they did eat."
Though we cannot understand what is taking place fully with our reasoning, but we know that human beings can live of Angel food [manna] as was written in Psalm 78:25. We also know that Jesus Christ ate regular food after his resurrection, and while in His resurrected body [Luke 24:30, 43, and Acts 10:41]
It is this same line of thinking that questions how the angels could impregnate women, as we saw in Genesis 6:1-5. But then, who said they did not have a body? Many people confuse the Holy Spirit, and the spirits of Satan's realm, with the fallen angels, and yes even God and his angels. Don't let it be a mystery to you that God and these two angels could eat of the meat and bread of man, for man partook of the manna in the wilderness for forty years, and it sustained them.
We are made in the image, or pattern after the Almighty God, and those two that were with Him. It is the same body of man of the second earth age, and the second heavenly age. It will not be the same body that we are going to be in in the third earth age, nor was it the same body that existed in the first earth age. Peter wrote and outlined very carefully that there were three earth ages, in II Peter 3, in God's overall plan.
God and His angels then ate what was set before them. If there is any mystery in our minds as to this possibility, it comes from the false traditions that have been passed on through time and years. Abraham knew exactly who these men were that were with God, and the Massorah documents it. Don't let anyone take away from the wisdom of God.
The mystery concerning the angels was brought out on a local television program, and through this program it came to light that even the local clergy are in the dark as to the correctness of the Massorah. Can it be no wonder that there is so much confusion about Angels, their existence, and what they are made of, for the Christian world today is allowing the Kenite world [of Satan] to do their translating.
This is not taking God down to man's level, but only understanding a little more of the person of God, who is our creator.
Genesis 18:9 "And they said unto him, "Where is Sarah thy wife?" And he said, "Behold, in the tent."
Genesis 18:10 "And He said, "I will certainly return unto thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy wife shall have a son." And Sarah heard it in the tent door, which was behind him."
So we see that in the following year Sarah will bare Isaac. The "time of life" is the regular nine month carrying time for pregnancy.
Genesis 18:11 "Now Abraham and Sarah were old and well stricken in age; and it ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women."
Sarah was well passed the change of life stage for a woman bearing a child. Even in her child bearing age she was barren, and could not conceive. This is why she allowed Hagar to bear a son to Abraham. This also explains how Rebekah, a grand-daughter of Abraham's brother, would be old enough to marry Isaac, Abraham's son.
Genesis 18:12 "Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, "After I am waxed old shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?"
"My lord also" is in reference to Abraham. This laughter is for joy.
Genesis 18:13 "And the Lord said unto Abraham, "Wherefore did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I of a surety bear a child, which am old?"
This is a quite sobering thing, it is like the Lord asking Abraham if He had the faith to accept this as fact; that He and Sarah would bear a son. Keeping in mind that Abraham is over one hundred and Sarah has been childless, and is ninety nine years old. To accept this as fact with faith, is real faith.
This is a promise which has a definite appointed time, and you can feel the excitement that Sarah must have felt.
Genesis 18:15 "Then Sarah denied, saying, "I laughed not"; for she was afraid. And He said, "Nay; but thou didst laugh."
Sarah was old, and though the task seemed even more impossible then winning a lottery, it was the joy of knowing this would definitely come to pass. Sarah had accepted this fact as a young woman, and in the course of many years, she had grown weary of the faith that it would come to pass. God had His appointed times so that in those times, man can not boast of anything that is of God. This child, Isaac, will be a miracle and everyone will know that He was from God.
Sarah had faith, and could see the working of the Almighty God, and she was excited; wouldn't you be? Nothing is impossible for God! When you pray for something in your life, are you ready to accept and receive it when it comes? It may take time, and happen in ways that you never expected, however, that faith must continue even into old age, or a time of death. How it is answered is up to our Lord, at His appointed time.
Genesis 18:16 "And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way."
Abraham walked with God and these angels [men] just a ways towards Sodom, after they were finished with their meal. Abraham was thankful for the visit, and wanted to visit a while longer.
We are made in God's image, and He is always with us. He is a personal God, and not a force off in some distant location.
Genesis 18:17 "And the Lord said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do;"
The Lord God is about to blow Sodom off the map, and He was very much aware of the sin and filth that was being carried on with the Nephilim and other offspring of the fallen angels, and men and women. When God looks down at the compromising of the so called Christians of today, with Sodomy and all the other filthy and violent acts, we can be assured that the time of this earth age is coming to a close. If you are in this sort of activity, or mind set, it is time to repent, and get right with the Lord.
If you ever wondered what Jesus thought of Sodomy, turn to Luke 17:32; He stated "Remember Lots wife", as His reaction to that type of sin. Does God hate Sodomites? He destroys them, and any illusion of compromise with God will end in the destruction of that soul, if not repented.
The wickedness and evil that is increasing today in this final generation is far worse then what Sodom and Gomorrah were doing, and all the signs for the end days are either history to us, or taking place before our eyes on the nightly news, and around us.
Genesis 18:18 "Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?"
This is God Speaking, and He is saying that I know that I can trust him.
Genesis 18:19 "For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and judgment; that the Lord may bring upon Abraham that which He hath spoken of him."
God said I know that Abraham would see that his family would be brought up in the ways of the Lord, and obey Me. The generations to follow Abraham would follow after God's laws. God knew of Abraham's love and faith, but how about your love and faith for the Heavenly Father.
Genesis 18:20 "And the Lord said, "Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;"
"The cry" in the Hebrew text is "Prosopopoeia", and it means "all human activity and actions". God is saying that the activity and actions of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah is sinful, and is very grievous to Him.
Genesis 18:21 "I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto Me; and if not, I will know."
Of course those that cry out unto the Lord, include those that have been murdered, for their souls cry out from the grave. They are not in the grave, for the soul the died returned immediately to be with the Father [Ecclesiastes 12:7], and gave account of the activity that is going on there.
Genesis 18:22 "And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the Lord."
The Lord stayed there with Abraham, and talked, while the two men [angels] continued on to Sodom.
Genesis 18:23 "And Abraham drew near, and said, "Wilt Thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?"
Abraham is concerned for his nephew Lot, who is living down there in Sodom. Though Lot's family has grown attached to Sodom, Lot was still a righteous man.
Genesis 18:24 "Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt Thou destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?"
Genesis 18:25 "That be far from Thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from Thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?"
Abraham is telling God that I know that you would not slay the righteous with the wicked. Abraham is speaking up to defend Lot. "Shall not the Judge of the earth do right"; the earth is the inhabitants of the earth, and Abraham is telling God that as Judge of the righteous, He would not allow this.
Genesis 18:26 "And the Lord said, "If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes."
Genesis 18:27 "And Abraham answered and said, "Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:"
Abraham is speaking and showing his submission to the Lord God, Yahoveh [here again is one of the 134 places of mistranslation from the Massorah, using the word "Adonai", which removes the deity from God and places God as a plain ruler over man].
Genesis 18:28 "Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt Thou destroy all the city for lack of five?" And He said, "If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it."
Abraham knows Sodom and the type of city it was, and now he starts to doubt that there is even fifty righteous in the city. So God tells Abraham that if there is forty five righteous in the city He will save the city, and not destroy it. Forty five in Biblical numerics is "preservation" Joshua 14].
Genesis 18:29 "And he spake unto Him yet again, and said, "Peradventure there shall be forty found there." And He said, "I will not do it for forty's sake."
Abraham is horse trading with God, for Abraham knows of the filth and sodomy that exists there in Sodom, and that righteous Lot still lives there. In Biblical numerics forty is "trials and probation".
Genesis 18:30 "And he said unto Him, "Oh lit not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there." And He said, "I will not destroy it for twenty's sake."
Abraham is full of doubt about the number of righteous men in Sodom, however, God knew what He would find there. Thirty in Biblical numerics stands for "salvation", and God's salvation is extended to all men in all times, when their hearts are right with the Lord Jehovah.
Genesis 18:31 "And he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there." And He said, "I will not destroy it for ten's sake."
Twenty in Biblical numerics is "redemption", and redemption is the path to salvation. It is Christ that did the redemptive act, so that each of could have salvation by our own choosing.
Genesis 18:32 "And he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: peradventure ten shall be found there." And He said, I will not destroy it for ten's sake."
Abraham's knowledge of Sodom is so strong, that he has bartered with God all the way down from fifty to ten righteous souls in all of Sodom and Gomorrah, and at the same time he knows that Lot is still there. Ten in Biblical numerics stands for "law and responsibility".
Genesis 18:33 "And the Lord went His way, as soon as He had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place."
So God left Abraham, having given to Abraham the assurance that if just ten righteous men lived in Sodom and Gomorrah he would not destroy the cities. However we will see that with this assurance of God's faithfulness to the righteous, Lot's life would be spared.
Genesis Chapter 19
Genesis 19:1 "And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground."
These are the two angels [men] that left God and Abraham talking in the plain of Mamre [Oaks], and went on ahead to Sodom to carry out their mission. When the angels came into Sodom, Lot was sitting in the seat of the gate. That seat at the gate, was the judgment seat, and showed that Lot was a man of high respect, and a citizen of Sodom. Considering the character of all the people of Sodom, I wonder what kind of judge he was?
Genesis 19:2 "And he said, "Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways." And they said, "Nay; but we will abide in the street all night."
You can almost hear Lot say, you don't want to stick around this place. Lot knew the danger of anyone being in the streets after dark. Lot had tried the cases of the events of those filthy people of Sodomy, and Lot knew it wasn't safe. This also shows how foolish Lot was, when he tried to protect one of God's angels; because each of God's angels can destroy any of mankind that would offer a threat to them.
Genesis 19:3 "And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat."
Again, these angels can sustain themselves on man's food, just as man can sustain himself on the manna of angel's food, just as the Israelites did that for forty years. Thus we can see the kinship of God, His angels and mankind. This is not trying to degrade God, However it is to get us to feel the kinship that we have to God. To understand this relationship between each of us and the Heavenly Father, will bring us to talk to Him in prayer.
Genesis 19:4 "But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:"
Sodomy will corrupt people of all ages, it is of Satan, and the perversion of sodomy so corrupts the mind that it causes perversion and violence of all sorts. In Sodom, the entire town had become corrupt, even the children.
Genesis 19:5 "And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, "Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them."
These immoral men had no sense of respect even for strangers. Now we can see just how wicked it was. God knew the degree of filth and wickedness this place was, when He was talking with Abraham, and making the promises in the 18th. chapter. This was the reason that they went there in the first place.
Genesis 19:6 "And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,"
Lot wanted to protect the two men, and didn't want the perverted Sodomites dragging them out.
Genesis 19:7 "And said, "I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly."
Understand, Lot was a judge.
Genesis 19:8 "Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof."
It's hard to understand how Lot could make such an offer with his own two daughters, however, this may be an indication of the mind-set that Lot and his family had sunk, when surrounded with such filth for so long. Let's face it, amongst the Sodomites, there is no honor, only degradation. There simply was no form of honor left in Sodom, except in the mind of Lot.
Genesis 19:9 "And they said, "Stand back." And they said again, "This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them." And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door."
Never put yourself in a position where you are surrounded by perverted men, where you can't equalize their perversion with some form of equalizer. The Sodomite perversion is blind to all forms of honor and respect. The result of this filthy mind will allow actions to fall far below the level of the animal kingdom. Sodomy is demonic. Our equalizer is the Lord God, and His power.
Genesis 19:10 "But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door."
These angels can see Lot is getting in deeper than he can handle. They can handle any problem that man can create. They pulled Lot back inside.
Genesis 19:11 "And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door."
These perverts were blinded by the angelic power and glow of these angels, that they were dumbfounded when the angels used the power of God to subdue them.
Genesis 19:12 "And the men said unto Lot, "Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:"
Because of God's love for Lot, they are going to try to dig up ten righteous men, to save the city, and protect Lot. These angels are even going to count Lot's family, to reach the ten count, for Abraham's sake.
Genesis 19:13 "For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it."
God knew there would not be even ten righteous people.
Genesis 19:14 "And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, "Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city." But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law."
When Lot spoke to his sons in law, they were also perverted, and the mocked, or looked at Lot as if he was talking nonsense. Remember, it was Lot that chose to come to Sodom, and was even popular enough with these perverts to become their judge, so is it no wonder they thought he was talking nonsense, when Lot began talking of the things of God. This is a good lesson for us today, for when the evil and wicked minds try to reason with God's people, they simply do not have the ability to think of anything except how it will promote there lifestyle, and and make available others to fulfill their perversions.
Lot told his sons in law that God would destroy the city, and they would not believe it. God also told us in His Word that it would be the same in the latter days, and we can see this prophecy coming to pass, with the same reaction that Lot saw. In fact, even in many churches today, people have grown so ignorant of God's Word that they even accept the perverts into their congregations.
Let it be a warning to those that compromise with the perverts, God doesn't suffer fools, or their perversion. The time is short, and the results will be total. God hates sodomy. In fact, when Jesus was asked about it by the Kenites, all He responded was; "Remember Lot's wife." [Luke 17:32]
Genesis 19:15 "And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, "Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city."
The angels tried to speed up Lot and his family; they told Lot that they are about to destroy the city, and for them to get a move on, or they would be destroyed also.
Genesis 19:16 "And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city."
This was because of God's love for Abraham, and also because Lot was a fair man, so the angels did not want anything to happen to Lot.
Genesis 19:17 "And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that He said, "Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed."
God takes care of His own, and God will take care of His Elect. Many today worry about having to live through God's tribulation, However, you don't have to worry about it anyway, for if you don't become involved with the Antichrist and his system, God will take care of you. It doesn't matter if you are even in the middle of it, you will be given a way to escape by the Heavenly Father.
Genesis 19:18 "And Lot said unto them, "Oh, not so, my Lord:"
Genesis 19:19 "Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and Thou hast magnified Thy mercy, which Thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:"
Lot is now afraid to leave the city of Sodom for the country, to escape with his life, for he is afraid of the unknown out in the wilderness. Sodom is about to be destroyed, and Lot still can't get it through his mind that there will be no more Sodom. We have the warnings of the prophets, and apostles, and Jesus Christ Himself of the coming tribulation, yet, the church world still wants to hang on to their fairy tales, and false doctrine, such as the Rapture theory, instead of preparing themselves for the total onslaught of deception that the Antichrist will bring upon the earth.
Genesis 19:20 "Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live."
If God tells you to go somewhere, go and don't worry about it; for with the order comes His protection. If God gives you a way out, such as He gave Lot, don't stand around until it is too late.
Genesis 19:21 "And He said unto him, "See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken."
Genesis 19:22 "Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither." Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar."
The angels were going to blow Sodom off the map, However, they would not do it until Lot had left for safety. "Zoar" in the Hebrew text is "little".
Genesis 19:23 "The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar."
Genesis 19:24 "Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven:"
This was not an atomic blast out of heaven, and there will not be a nuclear holocaust in this age, or any age. God created this earth to be inhabited, and fire and brimstone will not hurt those people that love God, because He will protect them. Those people in places that have sinned greatly against God, will be judged, and dealt with by God, and He will not hurt the environment. Down through the course of History, many civilizations were totally destroyed because of their sins against God and pagan worship, but God will take care of His own.
Genesis 19:25 "And He overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground."
God cleansed the ground, and eliminated the Sodomites and those of the surrounding towns committing the same practices.
Genesis 19:26 "But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt."
Remember, the angels said that Lot and his family should not look back, but make haste out of the area. It appears that Lot's wife had found the lifestyle of the Sodomites of interest to her, and the one last look claimed her life. Lot was moving to a place where the activity was not so wild, and Lot's wife had grown close to her Sodomite friends.
Isn't it troubling how a Sodomite can tell you of the "love of God", and how much they care about their fellow man, yet, completely overlook the hatred God has for the sin of Sodomy? God does not like this form of perversion in any degree. However, if it is possible for the Sodomite to see the sinfulness of his [her] and, there is forgiveness through the blood of Jesus Christ, and the repentive soul. You cannot separate the sinful activities, from the one doing the act. Isaiah addressed this as the fault of the House of Judah's downfall in Isaiah 3:9.
Isaiah 3:9 "The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves."
This sounds like a description of what is going on today, however it was the downfall of the nation of Judah. The Sodomites came out of their closets, and practiced their perversion in the open, and even "their countenance doth witness against them". God is not pleased with them, and just like Sodom was cleansed and destroyed, so also was Judah, and the destruction was brought on by themselves.
Genesis 19:27 "And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord:"
Genesis 19:28 "And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace."
Abraham knew what had happened, that Sodom had turned into a furnace.
Genesis 19:29 "And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt."
Lot was saved because of Abraham's intercessory prayer. When we study all the lessons in both the Old and New Testament, we are told in I Corinthians 10:11; "Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come."
They are "ensamples" to let us know what is going to happen in the end of this age. We are living in the end times, and these perversions are becoming so common that many churches even proudly declare their support of what God hates so much. Abraham was out horse trading for the lives of these Sodomites, as we saw in the last chapter, and he risked angering God. Only God knows what Lot had to do to get in good with the Sodomites, but his judge position indicates that Lot knew what was going on in the town, yet he stayed.
It wasn't because of Lot that God saved Lot; "God remembered Abraham", and thus saved Lot.
Genesis 19:30 "And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters."
Genesis 19:31 "And the first born said unto the younger, "Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:"
The daughters felt that they were cut off from all the world.
Genesis 19:32 "Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father."
Genesis 19:33 "And they made their father drink wine that night: and the first born went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose."
Lot was drunk, and didn't know anything about it.
Genesis 19:34 "And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, "Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father."
There will be two groups of people that will come from this relationship between Lot and his two daughters.
Genesis 19:35 "And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose."
Genesis 19:36 "Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father."
Genesis 19:37 "And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day."
"Moab" in the Hebrew language means "of his father". As we study the Scripture, and end time prophecy, don't forget who these people are, for they will become a nation, and exist in end time prophecy such as in Micah 6.
Genesis 19:38 "And the younger, she bare a son, and called his name Ben-ammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day."
"Ben-ammi" in the Hebrew means son of my people., and the son of the younger daughter became the father of the Ammonites nation. These sons were born to Lot after he had left the city of Sodom, and it became destroyed.
Genealogies are important to God, and it will become important to know the different peoples as to where they came from. In the genealogy of Christ, it was important to know that the blood line was pure, for Noah's and Abraham's pedigree was pure, and free from the Kenite, or the Nephilim contamination. And to understand the good prophets from the false, it is also important to know the parentage of the one speaking. In many cases something will be said by a person with the same name as a prophet, and it will be assumed to be of God, when in fact it is not.
We should keep an eye on Abraham, for he will become the father of many nations, both of Israel, and Judah, and Gentile nations. Abraham is to be a blessing to all, and this is primarily because Jesus Christ would come from Abraham's family. Abraham's obedience and faith is an example set for us, he talked with God, and today we communicate with God through our prayers and the study of His Word. Don't let your talking to God become a ritual, but make it a personal conversation, as you would converse with a friend.
Abraham walked and talked with God, and when we call upon him in Jesus Name, He will listen to us also. You don't need a formal setting, and a ritual routine to approach our Heavenly Father, you just talk to Him like you would a close friend. God is not out to destroy you, and because of His love for you, He sent His Son to even die for you so each of us could approach Him with even our smallest problems. When the going gets tough, that is when God is at His best, for there is no problem that He can not handle.
We've just read in Genesis 18 and 19 which was given as an example to let us know what God thinks of Sodomy and the very life style we see being promoted in our society today.
Now lets look what Jesus said in Luke 17 when talking about His return to destroy Satan and his followers in our generation, for Jesus cautioned us to remember Lot's wife and not look back at our own sinful habits, with favor, which He is coming to destroy.
So what went on in the days of Lot? Lot lived in Sodom, and there was a false doctrine of Sodomy, homosexuality. They sowed false doctrine, untruths, about Sodomy. They presented Sodomy as a normal act, and not the filth and sin that it is. Jesus is warning us that this will also be present in our day, and it already is staining the minds of the children of our land. Jesus is telling us that Sodomy will be getting just as bad as it was in the days of Lot. So what did God think of all the filth that was in Sodom?
Luke 17:29 "But the same day that Lord went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all."
We were warned in Mark 13:14 "But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:" Get out of the land of Judaea, or the nation of Israel, on the Lord's day. Why? That entire area will be pulverized, turned to powder. Jesus is telling us in verse 29, that it "will be just like the day when Lot left Sodom, and God rained fire and brimstone from heaven on that area, and destroyed them all." Jerusalem will be Satan's headquarters very shortly, for when he come, he will touch down on the mount in Jerusalem.
Luke 17:30 "Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."
Don't forget this verse; for Jesus is telling you directly that this is how it shall be in the day that Christ returns to this earth on the day of the Lord. You've been warned: Not one stone shall be left standing because it will be turned to dust; Just as it was in the days of Sodom, and just as devastating as the flood of Noah covered the land. You are going to be here, friend, for there is no rapture, and you will either be sealed in your mind ahead of time, or you will be part of Satan's system. There are no hiding places outside the hand of God.
Luke 17:31 "In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back."
Why? On that day of the Lord, there is nothing on this
earth that you will need, for this age of flesh man is done, finished and over.
"Remember Lot's wife"
The man or woman which shall be stationed upon the housetop is the watchman, the person with the truths of God stored and sealed in their mind. On that day of the Lord, there is nothing on this earth that you will need, for this age of flesh man is done, finished and over. You are so close on that day of turning into your spiritual body that the things of flesh man will be completely done away with. It is too late to make any adjustments. God has already turned you over to Satan and his fallen angels to have their way with you. When you see these things come to pass it is time to flee that area of Judaea. There is documentation of these truths in Matthew 24, and Mark 13.
Luke 17:32 "Remember Lot's wife."
The lessen being taught is! Don't look back on your previously "forgiven sins" with envy. The time when Christ returns is getting shorter every minute of every day! "Remember Lot's wife"
