When these types of biblical discoveries come to light, I think God is telling us something and we better pay attention.
What is being called a discovery of biblical proportion, new archaeological evidence for the location of Sodom, the biblical city and its people destroyed by God written about in Genesis Chapter 18 and 19 for its wickedness and sexual sins has been discovered. Read full story at link.
The new archaeological evidence of Sodom discovered actually shows the skeletal remains of those destroyed having met a violent, traumatic and quick death, with graphic descriptions. In the wicked and evil cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, there could not be found even ten righteous men to save the city. The men were so reprobate in Sodom that they wanted to sexually abuse the two angels who were sent to help and save the righteous Lot.
What were the sins of the people of Sodom? The Bible answers this for us. In Jude 1:7:
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”Speaking of “strange flesh”, the men of Sodom wanted to engage in sexual acts with the angels sent to save Lot. Angels are a species of created beings different from humans, which could mean bestiality, fornication would be unlawful lust or sex of either sex, which would also include homosexuality.
To go even further, Ezekiel is very descriptive of the sins of Sodom. In Ezekiel 16:49-50, we read
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me; therefore I took them away as I saw good.”
In Leviticus 18:22, the Lord calls homosexuality an abomination, which is a condemned, unlawful sexual behaviour by God.Looking around the world and America today, as in the days of Lot, Luke 17:28-30, it’s not too difficult to figure out that the world as we know it now is on the fast track for destruction by Jesus when He returns soon. We even now have Obama ordering all US officials working overseas to use funds to protect and promote homosexual rights in defiance of God Almighty.
As we celebrate the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, full of mercy, truth and grace, to save lost sinners who turn to Him in faith, and seek His forgiveness for sinning against God, at the same time, God is sending us a reminder that He is a holy and a just God and He does not tolerate sin; I think the Lord is also sending us yet another warning that He is about to intervene in the affairs of us humans on this planet in a way we have never seen before. When Jesus comes the second time, like Sodom, America, the world and its people will not escape God's destructive wrath. Warning after warning has been given and the time to turn away from sinning and turn to Jesus Christ for forgiveness is now.
But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Daniel 12:4Spread The News
