Why Sodom and Gomorrah Were Judged
1 – The destruction of Sodom was already determined by Yahovah before the mob tried to rape the angels. (The angels were sent to Lot to warn him of the destruction.) See Genesis 18-19, Genesis 19:1-5, “And the two cherubs came into Sodom at evening. And Lot was sitting at the gate of Sodom. And Lot saw, and he rose up to meet them and bowed his face to the earth. 2And he said, Behold, now, my masters, please turn in to your servant’s house and lodge, and wash your feet; and rise early and go to your way. And they said, No, for we will lodge in the street. 3And he much urged them, and they turned in to him and came into his house. And he made a feast for them. And he baked unleavened matzos, and they ate. 4Before they had laid down, even the men of the city, the men of Sodom, circled the house; from the young to the aged, all the people from its limits. 5And they called to Lot and said to him, Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us, that we may have sex [yada, Strong’s # 3045, know (carnally), perceive, observe, recognize, consider, acknowledge] with them [aleph tav, Strong’s # 853, ONE OF THE ANGELS WAS YESHUA HIMSELF!!].”
2 – The reasons given for the destruction of Sodom in multiple passages are never defined as “homosexuality” or “sodomy” but given as lying and adultery (Jeremiah 23:14, I have also seen a horrible thing among the prophets of Jerusalem; they commit adultery and walk in falsehood. And they make the hands of evildoers strong, so that not a man returns from his evil. They are all of them like Sodom to Me, and those living in her like Gomorrah.), fornication/whoredom (Jude 1:7, as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them, in like manner to these, committing fornication, and going away after strange flesh, laid down an example before-times, undergoing vengeance of everlasting fire.), and an overall lawless immoral lifestyle (2 Peter 2:6-8, and covering the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah with ashes, He condemned them with an overthrow, setting an example to men intending to live unholy lives. 7And also delivered righteous Lot, who was tormented with the filthy conduct of the lawless; 8for that righteous one living among them day after day, in seeing and in hearing, his righteous soul was tormented with their lawless deeds.).
3 – In a lengthy comparison of Israel to Sodom in Ezekiel 16, no mention is made of sexual sin. It says “Now this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, plenty of food, and comfortable security, but didn’t support the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before Me, so I removed them when I saw this.” (Ezekiel 16:49-50).
4 – Jude 1:7, “as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them, in like manner to these, committing fornication, and going away after strange flesh, laid down an example before-times, undergoing vengeance of everlasting fire.” uses an unclear word not found elsewhere in the NT (ekporneuo) translated variously as “whoredom” “fornication” or “sexual immorality” but never “homosexuality.”
And America will be judged for her own sins, and the sins of her people.
Genesis 19:24 “And Yahovah (on earth, Yeshua, as the Angel of the Lord) rained fire and brimstone on Sodom and Gomorrah, from Yahovah out of the heavens.
Psalm 9:17 “The wicked shall be turned to Sheol (hades, place of the dead), all the nations forgetting Yahovah.”
Luke 21:11 “And there will be severe earthquakes from place to place and famine and plagues. And there will be fears and terrorist acts and great signs will be seen from Heaven. And the winters will be severe.” America’s next sign from Heaven may be fire and brimstone!
