Sodom and Gomorrah

As I read headlines, each day I see that we, here in America, have become Sodom and Gomorrah. Whether Sodom and Gomorrah were worse than the days of Noah I am not going to pretend to know.

What I do know, is that we have gone down that path. I ask the Lord to forgives us (Christians of this country) that we have allowed this to happen.

How did we turn our country over to such sinful people. I could claim I am only 5 years old in the faith and didn’t know, but the Lord tells us that ignorance is not a reason. 

I know there will be a falling away, that is the only way that the man of sin will be able to deceive people. I thought America would be destroyed, not going in the way of Sodom and Gomorrah. 

If YHWY and Abraham were to have a conversation today, and Abraham said for 10 would you not destroy it. Could the Lord find 10 righteous people in the United States of America? 

We make gods out of everything without calling them gods. We are so sophisticated that we are ignorant. We wouldn’t know humility if it bit us in our dairy-aire. 

What will it take for us to climb off the high horse we got onto and turn back to God? We boast of sexual sin (of every kind), young people do not marry the way they used to. We take God out of school and court houses. We are allowing prostitutes and drag queens to be in our news daily. We kill and brag about killing unborn babies.

King Solomon said there is nothing new under the sun. This is not new and I understand that, but how could a nation founded on the principles of the bible allow ourselves to be drug so far into the mire that we do not know who God is.

We have made an idol of the real God, YHWH. We do not have to follow the Ten Commandments any more. Oh, the Bible is outdated. That book is so old it couldn’t possibly be talking about our modern age. God just didn’t know humans were going to get so smart that we would invent computers and talk to people all around the world.

Folks, we need to wake up! If you are a Christian and not in name only, then read and reread my favorite verse. 2 Chronicles 7:14

2 Chronicles 7:14

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Many will say that is the old testament, that doesn’t pertain to us anymore. God does not change and Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. There is more prophesy to be fulfilled in the old Testament than the new. You can not tear 39 books of your bible our and expect to know who God is. 

You can not claim to know God want to protect animals more than people. We are so consumed with some little fish or whatever lives in the little streams than we are with babies being murdered in the womb. We want to deny everything that is God. We deny His Holiness when we humanize Him. We do not even hold His name as reverent. 

We want to murder the unborn, the elderly, and the disabled! So when no one speaks for them, when they come for you, whoever you are who will speak for you? When my Grams died I was thankful to the Lord. I listened to pray for the Lord Jesus to take her home. She was never in a nursing home. My aunts took care of her. I help just a couple of days a week. I read her the bible and even though she no longer even knew who I was the Psalms always soothed her. She had pain like anyone else. When her feet were swollen and I would rub them she just loved it. 

I don’t know where people get the idea that they can make decisions in place of God. What are you doing in God’s eyes? You are placing yourself above Him! Many people discuss whether we are under the Ten Commandments. I keep the Ten Commandments on my wall to remind me of what God wrote with His own Hand. We no longer have to sacrifice an animal every year, because Yeshua Hamashiach fulfilled that. He however did not fulfil the Ten Commandments. He said if you love me keep My Commandments. Which commandment do you not have to keep?

I am not a scholar nor a theologian, what I am is a person who loves God. I am grateful that Jesus would come and die on the cross for my sin. I am a sinner that God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son. I will not murder another human being. King David killed the man that killed King Saul. King Saul had tried to kill David for many years. The man thought he would be rewarded. He was not. Why did King David do this? King David said that no one should kill the Lord’s anointed. Who are you to say that the unborn baby isn’t God’s anointed? Who are you to say that the elderly person you want to be so human to and not let them live that way isn’t God’s anointed? John Leaped in the womb when Mary came in the room. Sarah and Elizabeth both had a child in their old age.

Do not think you are wise enough to know the mind of God! We are held under a higher standard in the New Covenant times than the Old Covenant times. Christians you had better know this. You need to study what the Word says about Him, new and old.

I pray that this reaches the heart of at least one person.

God bless you!

  1. You have poured out your heart about the atrocities that are happening not only in the USA but all over the world. The world have become another Sodom and Gomorrah. I joined you in prayer for the nation’s because the Lord Jesus is returning soon.

  2. The presence of God is a problem for the majority. While standing at the foot of the mountain we often ‘cloud’ the issue of just who He is. God is always where He should be. Israel has its scales while the west has its tinted perception that has become idiomatic.

    1. You are so right. That why I have searched for someone like you. I had so many questions that it seemed the answers weren’t correct. When I was first introduced to the Hebrew Language and began to understand the depth behind the meaning of even each letter I began to dig. I know that I have just started to begin understand, but the more I learn the more I thirst. As a child I would come home and tell my mother that the world was millions of years old. She never told me that it wasn’t. She fed into that school narrative. It made me question the word of God. The two couldn’t coexist. I believed in God, I believed the Jesus died on the cross and was raised 3 days later but how could I believe everything the bible taught? Besides that I couldn’t hardly understand all those names, so many concepts, much less a God that was so far from me. He only watched to see if we came to church, right? Oh, those years I lived without God. When He saved me and showed me who He was, gave me a hunger to learn more. My thirst is unquenchable for knowledge of Him. I believe Hebrew was the first spoken language. I believe learning Hebrew and the depths of it reveals Scripture to us. The meaning and the Heart of God. God bless you for the truth that you bring to those of us that do not have the knowledge that you possess. Keep speaking the truth. Teach all who will listen. Go deeper when you think you have gone deep enough. God bless you, John, I will see you when we all get to heaven.

      1. While the Children were at the foot of the mountain, God was on top in the cloud, above them, with thunder and lightning. They were down there naming the golden calf the NAME. The issue was where was Moshe? God was there.

      2. I have replayed this question over and over in my mind since you asked it. I didn’t respond right away because I knew in my mind that Moshe was still on the mountain top. When he returned is when he broke the first set of tablets that contained the Ten Commandments. God saw the Children and told Moshe to go down because the Children have corrupted themselves. Now I have always thought this was explained because God is Omnipresent. Just at the moment I may be in prayer you may be in prayer also yet God can hear and answer both. Would this be correct or am I searching for something more? I have also thought at these times this would be Jesus that shows Himself before His first coming. Thanks for the question. This has occupied a lot of my thinking over the past couple of weeks.

  3. Amen amen, oh Lord I pray that thousands, no millions would find this, read it an have ears to listen. Father forgive us, for we have sinned. We have not heard your voice. We have not loved you or our neighbors as ourselves. We have dishonored your word. Lord have mercy on us, and I thank you for Christian. Bless him lord and make his words to prosper. Lord Jesus you came to seek and to save the lost, but I fear that the fields are beyond ripe and are beginning to rot. Help us oh Lord we pray in your name. Forgive us.
