Thee Last Day
Luke 17:28-30, 32-33 (NKJV) “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. . . .32Remember Lot’s wife. 33Whoever seeks to save his life will lose [destroy] it, and whoever loses [destroys] his life will preserve it.”
In the verses just before our text for today, Yeshua had compared His JESUS ADVENT 2.0 to Noah’s day, then here He relates how His return will be like in the days of Lot and his wife, when Sodom and Gomorrah and Lot’s wife were destroyed. Look at this long list of comparatives in Luke 17. We know from Genesis 19 that many men in Sodom were Sodomites, or homosexuals, but Yeshua didn’t even mention that in His list above. Do you know anyone who likes to eat or drink alcoholic beverages? Do you know anyone who likes to shop? Do you know anyone who likes to sell stuff, even on eBay or at the flee market? Do you know anyone who likes to browse at yard sales? Do you know anyone who likes to garden or grow flowers, or that foreign concept, farm? Do you know anyone in construction or remodeling or the trades? These were normal activities in Lot’s day. These were normal people; they were just trying to make a living in their day, like folks are trying to do today. They just did not realize their society was being destroyed from within by a moral cancer, similar to the LGBT movement today. LGBT stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender. These are the folks who have gained political power in America to destroy it from within, along with other cancers like Islam. I’m sure you’ve heard about the Colorado school where the children recently said the Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic stating, “one nation under allah”. If you don’t think we’re living in Lot’s day, slap yourself awake. America’s ways are being weighed in the heavenly court and our days are numbered. Thee Last Day of mercy for America is at hand. You can take that to the bank.
What else might we learn from Lot and his wife? Let’s go back to Genesis 18-19 and find out. The destroying Angels had first stopped by to eat with Abraham at his tent and to prophesy that Sarah would have a son the next year. After lunch Yahweh contemplates whether or not to tell Abraham His plans for the destruction of the cities of the plain. Then in Genesis 18:20-21 (NKJV) “And Yahweh said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, 21I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.”” Then Abraham negotiates for the lives of righteous people in Sodom, knowing that his nephew Lot lived in Sodom. Yahweh agrees not to destroy Sodom if 10 righteous folks can be found in the city.
In Genesis 18:2 we see 3 Angels came to see Abraham, but in Genesis 19:1 we see that only 2 Angels entered Sodom to save Lot and his family. Yahweh apparently stayed outside the city of sin. Lot was a cordial, generous, hospitable man and as was the custom invited the Strangers into his home to spend the night. Notice that in verse 3 Lot baked unleavened bread for his guests, thus we know what time of year this was, at the Feast of Passover and Unleavened Bread, during the spring month of Nisan, hundreds of years before the Torah Feasts were written down. After they feasted, and just before they lay down to sleep for the night, all the wicked men of Sodom, old and young, surrounded Lot’s house. They desired to sodomize the Angels inside of Lot’s house. How’s that for a complete void of moral character? The wicked men of Sodom threatened to rape Lot and bust into his home and rape everyone inside. If it weren’t for the intervention of the Two Angels, Lot and his family would have been destroyed that night. Does this sound like the evening news in your city? Rape, sodomizing, home invasions?
The Two Angels told Lot to escape the city with his family. Lot tried to warn his sons-in-laws, but they thought he was joking with them. Lot’s family did not even total 10 righteous people. Sodom’s condemnation was just and its judgment day had arrived. According to Genesis 19:15, Lot spent the whole night trying to get his family ready to leave the city of Sodom before it could be destroyed by the Angels. Finally, in the morning, the Angels had to literally drag Lot, his wife, and his two daughters out of the house and city, for their own good. Does that sound like any family you know? Are you ready to flee when Yahweh says to flee? Are you and your family ready to run for the hills at a moments notice?
Notice the Angel’s command to Lot once outside the city on Thee Judgment Day of Sodom, verse 17b, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.” Lot is so old, befuddled, and afraid that he pleads with the angels and asks to run over to the next town, instead of having to go up into the mountains. Apparently, the Angels had planned to destroy Zoar also, but spared it for Lot’s sake. Lot seems not to trust Yahweh and His Angels, would Yahweh really let him die in the mountains, after saving him out of Sodom? Yahweh destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah as soon as Lot entered Zoar. Come on Lot, show a little faith!
Look at verse 26, “But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” Does this sound like any wives you know today? Old Lot was trying to protect his wife from the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and she decides for herself to LOOK BEHIND HIM, outside of his protection, and she instantly was destroyed, becoming a pillar of salt. Do you know any rebellious sodomite-loving women like that today? I dare say our cities are full of them, wimpy men and rebellious women, a perfect recipe for the destruction of any society. Do you think there are 10 righteous people in your city? Really? No time like the present to intercede for your city.
Remember the command of the Angel from verse 17? Look now at verse 30, “Then Lot went up out of Zoar and dwelt in the mountains, and his two daughters were with him; for he was afraid to dwell in Zoar. And he and his two daughters dwelt in a cave.” Lot’s obedience was a day late! If the Angels had not pulled Lot out of Sodom, he and his family would have been destroyed. Not only was Lot a day late in his obedience to the command of Yahweh, he caused a wicked city to be spared, one which Yahweh had planned to destroy. We know what happened over the next few days in the cave in the mountains where Lot and his daughters lived. He committed incest with each of his daughters. That incest gave birth to Moab and Ammon (Jordanians), resulting in the wicked tribal thorns in Israel’s side to this very day.
One of the greatest lessons to learn from Lot is INSTANT OBEDIENCE. The Angels gave Lot all night to escape Sodom, from bedtime to sunrise, and he still had not left the city and escaped to the mountains. Folks, if we drag our feet like Lot did on Sodom’s day of judgment, we may find ourselves getting destroyed with the wicked, like Lot’s sons-in-law. When Yahweh tells you to get out NOW, He means NOW!
Folks, when the Court of Heaven settles when Thee Last Day of mercy will be extended to a city or nation, that’s it, game over. The day after Thee Last Day of mercy is Judgment Day for that city or nation. Unless Yahweh’s Holy Spirit sends a spirit of repentance and spiritual awakening upon our land, we will soon bump into Thee Last Day of mercy for America, and many other nations of the world. With the blood of over 50 million murdered babies on our hands, do we really believe we’re more righteous than Sodom and Gomorrah? With the LGBT perverts running our governments and destroying the family fabric of our society, do we really believe we’re more righteous than Sodom and Gomorrah? With Muslims shoving their wicked sharia law down our throats, do we really believe we’re more righteous than Sodom and Gomorrah? Wake up, America. Wake up world. We will see the end of Thee Last Day of mercy soon, very soon. In fact, we are living in Thee Last Day of mercy today. The prophetic command to Yahweh’s people to flee from the cities has been going forth for about 100 years now. It’s way past time to heed His voice. Repent and flee today, while mercy and grace are still being offered to thee.
