TWIN CITIES OF THE PLAINS

Two cities stand out In Genesis because of their quick demise; the main damage was over in a short time something like the San Francisco earth quake of 1906.

There was no time to get ready for it, and it was ended in a few minutes. Like as Sodom and Gomorrah, the smoke continued to rise for days, giving notice that a catastrophe had occurred.

Had Sodom realized the two angels were sent from GOD as a warning of judgment to come, GOD would have given them the opportunity to repent.  (See Genesis chapter 19.)

However the sin that possessed them would not allow them to act contrary to their reprobate nature. (See Romans 1:18-32)

To be sure your sin will find you out, and once found out judgment will follow.

One of the strangest phenomena in recent times was the Asian Tsunami. The people had heard the warning the wave was coming and ignored it. They further went down to the beach to get a closer look, and some 300,000 people died.

Luke 17:26-30 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying, and being given in marriage right up to the day when Noah went into the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed all of them.

So it was in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But on the day when Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed all of them. The day when the Son of Man is revealed will be like that.

While there is nothing wrong with doing business as usual, there must be a consciousness of the return of the Lord controlling every thing we do. He must be a major part of the equation of our lives. Those who ignore the message that is on every hand, “To repent and be saved” will receive the reward of their rebellion and their unrighteous.

Not everyone heard the message that destruction was coming, and this thought points out two things. One, it is the responsibility of everyone to make provision to be warned, and two; it is the responsibility of those who have the knowledge to share with those who are without.

The return of the Lord will not be without warning; in fact the warning has been proclaimed for over two thousand years, but His return will swift and final.

But on the day when Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained from heaven and destroyed all of those who remained in the cities.

I'm not sure but I think Lot just ordered some suitcases on line and will receive them shortly.
