Then the men rose up from there, and looked down toward Sodom; and
Abraham was walking with them to send them off.
And the lord said, shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do. Genesis 18- 16,17
And the Lord said, the outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is very great, and their sin is exceedingly grave.
I will go down now, and see if they have done entirely according to its outcry, which has come to me; and if not I will know. Genesis 18-20,21
And Abraham came near and said, wilt thou indeed sweep away the righteous with the wicked. Genesis 18-23
Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. Genesis 19-1
Then the men said to Lot, who else have you here? A son-in-law, and your sons, and your daughters, and whom you have in the city, bring them out of the place; for we are about to destroy this place, because their outcry has become so great before the lord that the Lord has sent us to destroy it.
And Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were to marry his daughters, and said up! Get out of this place, for the Lord will destroy this city; but he appeared to his sons-in-law to be jesting.
And when morning dawned the angels urged Lot, saying, up take your wife and your two daughters, who are here, lest you be swept away in the punishment of the city.
But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his daughters, for the compassion of the Lord was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city. Genesis 19-12,13,14,15,16
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; and did not spare the ancient world, but preserved Noah, a preacher of righteousness, with seven others, when he brought a flood upon the world of the ungodly; and if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly thereafter; and if he rescued righteous Lot, oppressed by the sensual conduct of unprincipled men, for by what he saw and heard that righteous man, while living among them, felt his righteous soul tormented day after day with their lawless deeds, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment. 2 Peter-4, 5,6,7,8,9
I wonder how much longer the Lord can endure with what is happening with man.
It seems like the pace of human depravity is escalating so fast, that you just have to gasp in shock at what is happening!
You have to wonder how much more can the Lord endure?
I heard it said that if the Lord does nothing with this generation, he would have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.
Why is God allowing these evil days to just carry on, year by year with very little evidence of his displeasure?
Are you tormented day after day with what you see happening?
Are you longing to see a better world?
Do you hate the injustice that carries on day after day in the world?
Are you agonizing at what is happening in the house of God?
Are you able to live in peace with the Prince of this world?
Some probing questions for us as his people;
I think if left to us to decide, things will just carry on as always.
I believe the days are starting to change.
I don’t think we will be able to just carry on, live our life as before.
I think the question is going to come, are you with me or are you against me, do you love me, or this present world.
Are you going to continue in your secret sins of rebbellion, or are you going to lay them down.
Some Questions the Lord is asking me.
Are you willing to give up everything you love in this present world and follow him in suffering and rejection?
I believe these Questions are about to be asked to the people of God.
God is waiting for the answer from the church before he addresses the world.
See to it that you do not refuse him who is speaking.
For if those did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less shall we escape who warns from heaven?
And his voice shook the earth then, but now he has promised, saying, yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven. Hebrews 12-25,26
A song came to me a while ago these are the words.
The days are coming days are near
The king of heaven he will appear
Blow the trumpet loud and clear
Days of darkness are very near
Heavens tremble moon grows dark
Voice he utters is very sharp
Sickles ready earth is ripe
Return to him with all your life
Son of man he will appear
Mighty angels are very near
Mighty trumpet it shall sound
Dead in Christ will be made alive
