As It Was In The Days Of Lot
AS IT WAS IN THE DAYS OF LOT
Luke 17:28-30, “Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.” So how was it in the days of Lot? Well, homosexuality and all its deviant perversions had taken over the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. So what perverse movement is taking over politics, education, religion, the military, family life, the judicial system, and the workplace like the homosexual movement? No other movement has made such gains in these arenas in Jewish Israel, Great Britain, and America as has the homosexual movement. Not even the black or Islamic movements have made such gains. What the homosexual movement has done to our Israelite nations is not good. Yahweh is about to judge our nations, as He had to judge Sodom and Gomorrah. Matthew 10:15, “Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!” We will be destroyed by fire. Only a small percentage of our city populations will survive. Amos 4:11-12, ““I overthrew some of you, as Yahweh overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning; yet you have not returned to Me,” says Yahweh. 12“Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel (modern Jewish Israel, Great Britain, America); because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your Mighty One, O Israel (Jewish Israel, Great Britain, America)!””
Yahweh does not just indiscriminately destroy humans. Our mass destructions are most often the judgment of Yahweh. Remember the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham interceded with Yahweh Yeshua, Who had come down to visit Abraham, trying to save those cities, for the sake of the few righteous residents, Genesis 18:16ff. Lot and his wife and two daughters were the only ones saved out of the two wicked cities. Genesis 19:23-29, “The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24Then Yahweh (Yeshua on earth) rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from Yahweh (the Father) out of the heavens. 25So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. 27And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before Yahweh (Yeshua on earth). 28Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29And it came to pass, when Yahweh destroyed the cities of the plain, that Yahweh remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.” Friends, unless the Israelite nations of Jewish Israel, Great Britain, and America repent of their sins, including homosexuality, we will be destroyed just like Sodom and Gomorrah. This time, unfortunately for us, Yahweh may choose to use nuclear war to destroy us. Fire is fire.
Yahweh does not want to destroy us. He wants us to repent and turn to Him for salvation of our miserable souls. Look at Matthew 10:15 again, “Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!” Yahweh is going to call up the dead residents of Sodom and Gomorrah on the Day of Judgment. He will introduce Himself personally to them and more than likely preach the Gospel of Yeshua to them at the judgment seat. It sounds like Yahweh will have more mercy on Sodom and Gomorrah than He will have on some other wicked cities. What other wicked cities? I propose that Yahweh is talking about our wicked end-time cities today. We sin more, more often, on a larger scale, because our cities are much more populous than ancient Sodom and Gomorrah. Is it possible that Yahweh will be more lenient with Sodom and Gomorrah than He will be with our modern Israelite cities in Jewish Israel, Great Britain, and America? Yes, I believe that is exactly what the Scriptures reveal in the words of Yeshua Himself. Today is the day to repent and find salvation in Yeshua HaMashiach. Tomorrow is Judgment Day.
Joel 3:1-4, “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I bring back the captives of Judah and Jerusalem, 2I will also gather all nations, and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat; and I will enter into judgment with them there on account of My people, My heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations; They have also divided up My land. 3They have cast lots for My people, have given a boy as payment for a harlot, and sold a girl for wine, that they may drink. 4“Indeed, what have you to do with Me, O Tyre and Sidon, and all the coasts of Philistia? Will you retaliate against Me? But if you retaliate against Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your retaliation upon your own head;” If you think Yahweh hasn’t noticed, or is happy, that the nations of the world continue to try to divide His Land, think again. As these nations of the world continue to turn on Israel, trying to divide Yahweh’s Land, the more our nations will be destroyed. Right now, as our foolish national leadership pressures Israel with the fantasy to give up land for peace, the great flood of the mighty Mississippi River is dividing America. If you are still alive in America, I highly recommend, no, I command you in Yeshua’s name, to repent and turn to Him for salvation. Pray for our nations. Yahweh is in the mode of disciplining His children, the nations of Israel today, Jewish Israel, Great Britain (including all their old Commonwealth nations), and America, for our salvation, for our good. His plan is to bring us all back to His Land. Unfortunately, He will have to destroy the Gentile nations of the world to pave the way for our return to the Land. Read Ezekiel 39 and Revelation 19. It is about time for the first Gog, Magog war. The second Gog, Magog war takes place about a thousand years from now, see Ezekiel 38 and Revelation 20.
Much of Christendom believes we will see a great harvest in the end times. That harvest is described in Ezekiel 37, in Ezekiel’s vision of the valley of dry bones. Just look at verses 11-14, “Then He said to me, “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel (includes Jewish Israel, all the former British Commonwealth [Ephraim], and America [Manasseh]). They indeed say, ‘Our bones are dry, our hope is lost, and we ourselves are cut off!’ 12Therefore prophesy and say to them, ‘Thus says Sovereign Yahweh: “Behold, O My people, I will open your graves and cause you to come up from your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. 13Then you shall know that I am Yahweh, when I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. 14I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, Yahweh, have spoken it and performed it,” says Yahweh.’”” Folks, this harvest is Resurrection Day, Rapture Day, Judgment Day, the Day of Yahweh. We are not going to fly off somewhere into the heavens. We are going home to the Promised Land of Israel!! 1 Corinthians 15:50-54, “Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahweh; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep (in death), but we shall all be changed—52in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible has put on incorruption, and this mortal has put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”” 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, “13But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep (in death), lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14For if we believe that Yeshua died and rose again, even so Yeshua will bring with Him those who sleep (in death) in Yeshua. 15For this we say to you by the word of Yahweh, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of Yeshua will by no means precede those who are asleep (in death). 16For Yeshua Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of Yahweh. And the dead in Messiah will rise first. 17Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet Yeshua in the air. And thus we shall always be with Yeshua. 18Therefore comfort one another with these words.”
Where are we going to be with Yeshua and the Father forever? In Israel! Revelation 5:10, “And have made us kings and priests to our Mighty One; and we shall reign on the earth.” Revelation 20:4-6, “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Yeshua and for the word of Yahweh, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Messiah for a thousand years. 5But the rest of the dead did not live again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. 6Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of Yahweh and of Messiah, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” So where is Yeshua going to reign from? Joel 3:16-17, “Yahweh also will roar from Zion, and utter His voice from Jerusalem; the heavens and earth will shake; but Yahweh will be a shelter for His people, and the strength of (all) the children of Israel. 17“So you shall know that I am Yahweh your Mighty One, dwelling in Zion My holy mountain. Then Jerusalem shall be holy, and no aliens shall ever pass through her again.”” Ezekiel 37:24-28, ““David (Yeshua) My servant shall be king over them, and they shall all have one shepherd (Yeshua); they shall also walk in My judgments and observe My statutes, and do them. 25Then they shall dwell in the land that I have given to Jacob My servant, where your fathers dwelt; and they shall dwell there, they, their children, and their children’s children, forever; and My servant David (Yeshua) shall be their prince forever. 26Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them, and it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; I will establish them and multiply them, and I will set My sanctuary in their midst forevermore. 27My tabernacle also shall be with them; indeed I will be their Mighty One, and they shall be My people. 28The nations also will know that I, Yahweh, sanctify Israel, when My sanctuary is in their midst forevermore.”’” Yahweh just stated three times that His sanctuary will be with us; don’t you think He means it? He’s coming back soon, my friends, I hope you’re ready to meet Him. He wants to meet you. Read the Books of Joel and Amos today, they will help you prepare to meet your Maker.
