Sodom Is Destroyed Genesis 19:15-29

To read Genesis 19:15-29 without my comments click HERE.

Both the bible and history clearly show that cities as well as individuals will eventually come under the judgment of the Father. Outstanding examples of cities other than Sodom is the city of Pompeii that was center place of gross immorality prior to Mount Vesuvius going into eruption in 79 A.D. Another example is the island of Martinique in the early 1902 when they paraded the pig through the streets of St. Pierre in a mockery of Yashua Messiah. Only less than one week later Mount Pelee erupted and killed all the people that inhabited the city.

Although the city of Sodom set the stage to be destroyed through their gross immorality, the real catalyst is the absence of the righteous without which the city had absolutely no way of repenting (changing their ways and the way they think.)
In the morning when Sodom was destroyed, Lot, his wife, and daughters left the city to go to a small city called Zoar after pleading with the angels.

There is one thing we must keep in mind when we read this passage, and that is Lot had a very important position in the city and was very wealthy. So wealthy that his wife was given over to her sinful lifestyle in such a way that she had a hard time leaving. Her delay was her undoing as she did not escape in time when the Lord told her to leave then rained fire and brimstone from the heavens igniting the tar pits of the city with a fire so hot it totally consumed everything in the area.

Lot's wife was turned into a memorial of salt and minerals when her body was vaporized from the heat in much the same way that the victims of Hiroshima were also vaporized from the heat of the atom bomb.
The Messiah has spoken in Luke 9:62 when he said “...No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” This statement was true for Lot's wife and it is true for us today. When he speaks, we must answer by our actions. It's not a matter of who we love as the modern churches teach, but rather who we obey! praise the power of his eternal word!

In verse 29 it's made clear that absolutely the only reason that Lot was spared was because of the intercessory prayers of Abraham and this is yet another time when Abraham saved Lot's life. This action of Abraham who truly was an unwavering man of Yahweh shows that there is much power in the prayer of the righteous, as the Father does answer prayer.

This is against my best judgement however, I am posting these videos of a man called Michael Rood who claims to be a Jew and is called a cult leader when I researched his name. I would like to not post his videos, but he does an excellent job in presenting the destruction of Sodom, and I must give credit where credit is due. I have personally seen a video where he dressed up as Santa and gave fake pills to children, very strange, so I do not recommend this person in any of his other videos.

  1. The Santa video was kind of funny but long. If I were the kid I would of asked for a gun and put myself out of the misery. Whoooooo. I was board to tears. I give the little girl credit for sitting there listening to him. The lady knitting had the right idea. She could of finished her project if he went on any longer. :-)
