Days of Lot Fire

"As it was in the days of...."
Part 1: Lot, the sexual sins and destruction of Sodom

June 29, 2022
by Greg DesVoignes

26 And as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: 27 They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; 29 but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.  Luke 17:26-30


(Special message to churches that approve of homosexuality)

This article is the first part of a two part message on the prophecies of Jesus in Luke 17 of what we would see, and are now seeing, in the end of the days of this earth prior to Jesus being "revealed".  This part will be on showing what is was like in the days of Lot and comparing that culture with ours today as a sign that Jesus will soon be revealed.  The second part will be on the days of Noah to also compare those times with today.  Because this month of June has been openly declared "Gay Pride Month", the first message is on the Days of Lot in regard to the blatant homosexuality in Lot's days.

"Revealed" as used in the above text, is the Greek word "apokalyptō" which is defined as, "to uncover, lay open what has been veiled or covered up" (Strongs).  Of interest is that "apokalypto" is formed of two words; "apo" and "kalypto".

 "Apo" means to "separate ...of local separation, after verbs of motion from a place i.e. of departing, of fleeing,... of separation of a part from the whole ... of any kind of separation of one thing from another by which the union or fellowship of the two is destroyed "

"Kalypto" means to "hide.. to hinder the knowledge of a thing".  Strong's says this word is akin to "kleptō" which means to "take away or steal by stealth", and "kryptō" which means, "to conceal that it may not be known".

It would seem then that this alludes that Jesus was formerly hidden, but at this soon future time, He will be uncovered, or "revealed", or possibly appears, since he is not hidden to Christians. Yet when we look at the word, we also see that there is also the association of a "departing", a "fleeing" a separation "by which a union of two is destroyed", and to "steal by stealth".  Could this "revealing" also refer to His appearance and the Christian's departure via the Rapture from this earth prior to it's destruction?  Something to look at in view of how Lot was rescued from Sodom.

The Biblical Description of Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim

We first hear of Sodom and it's sister cities, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim in Genesis 10:15-20. We are told that these cities were in the land of Canaan and that they were the descendants of Noah's evil son, Ham.  Ham had committed an unknown, but probably sexual sin against Noah that may have involved his own mother (compare Genesis 9:22-26 with Leviticus 18:8 Leviticus 20:11) .  Because of that sin, Noah placed a curse upon Canaan, the son of Ham.  In this curse Noah said that Canaan would serve Noah's other son Shem, of whom Israel came from.  And this was seen later on when Israel went into the land of Canaan to dispose of these descendants of Ham.

Abraham gives Lot prefrence

But after this curse of Noah, Sodom is next seen in Genesis 13 when Abraham and his nephew Lot were about to part company due to the land they were in could not support both of them and their herds of livestock.  Abraham, being the more righteous, gave preference to Lot and gave Lot the first choice of the land he could take.  Lot, being self centered, took a look at the area of Sodom, saw that it was lush (like the garden in Eden and Egypt), and chose this outwardly looking lush place for himself.

Genesis 13 says,
"1Then Lot chose for himself all the plain of Jordan, and Lot journeyed east. And they separated from each other. 12 Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelt in the cities of the plain and pitched his tent even as far as Sodom. 1

But there was a problem in Lot's choice that was unforeseen by him or overlooked because of the lushness of the land.  The problem?

"13 But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord..."

What looked to be a blessing to Lot became a thorn because of the sins of Sodom.  Yet, he eventually moved into the city.  He stayed there, married there and had two daughters, who then also became engaged to two men of Sodom.  Lot had assimilated to the culture.

In Genesis 14 we see that at one point in time, the kings of Sodom and the other three cities around them became vassal states under four kings of other nations.  But after being subject to them for thirteen years, the kings of Sodom and the three other cities rebelled.  This caused the controlling nations to attack Sodom and these cities, but only after this coalition of kings attacked several nations of the giants a year after the rebellion.  Genesis 14:5-6 says,

"In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer and the kings that were with him came and attacked the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim, the Zuzim in Ham, the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim, and the Horites in their mountain of Seir, as far as El Paran, which is by the wilderness. Then they turned back and came to En Mishpat (that is, Kadesh), and attacked all the country of the Amalekites, and also the Amorites who dwelt in Hazezon Tamar." (For references on these tribes of giants [bolded], see; Genesis 6:4, Amos 2:9–10, 1 Chronicles 11:23, Deuteronomy 2:10–11, Deuteronomy 2:20–21, Deuteronomy 3:11, 13, 2 Samuel 21:16, 18, 20, Numbers 13:32—33.  These will be discussed in Part 2: The Days of Noah)

Then after defeating these nations of giants, Chedorlaomer and the other kings with him came and attacked Sodom and Gomorrah and took Lot captive.

Abraham heard this, and with only 318 of his servants that he divided into two groups of 159, Abraham attacked the armies of these kings and caused them to flee.  Abraham then rescued Lot and returned him and the spoil of the enemies, back to Sodom.  But it was the power and hand of God that went before Abraham to do this impossible-to-man act. How else could just 318 men defeat those powerful kings who had defeated giants and the city of Sodom?

Sodom Became Aware Of God

The account in Genesis 14 says that the king of Sodom then went out to meet Abraham upon his return from rescuing Lot.  But so did an entity by the name of Melchizedek, who was said to be "king of Salem" and "the priest" of the true God.  This king is believed to be a manifestation of Jesus.

Genesis 14 says,

"18 Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine; he was the priest of God Most High. 19 And he blessed him and said:

“Blessed be Abram of God Most High,
Possessor of heaven and earth;
20 And blessed be God Most High,
Who has delivered your enemies into your hand.”

And he gave him a tithe of all...

But the fact that God did this great wonder went right over the head of the king of Sodom and was ignored by him as seen in the next verse.

...21 Now the king of Sodom said to Abram, “Give me the persons, and take the goods for yourself.”

22 But Abram said to the king of Sodom, “I have raised my hand to the Lord, God Most High, the Possessor of heaven and earth, 23 that I will take nothing, from a thread to a sandal strap, and that I will not take anything that is yours, lest you should say, ‘I have made Abram rich’— 24 except only what the young men have eaten, and the portion of the men who went with me: Aner, Eshcol, and Mamre; let them take their portion.” Genesis 14:18-22

The king of Sodom would have been aware of this impossible feat and now witnessed this exchange and words of Melchizedek declaring it was God who delivered these enemies to Abraham with only 318 men when the kings of Sodom could not.  Abraham would take nothing from an evil society.  Abraham himself told the king he gave glory to God and no one else.   So, this king of Sodom would have seen the power of God, the glory of God which Abraham declared to him; yet the wickedness of the cities persisted and got worse.  Such it is with a society and culture that rejects God including churches that reject, or twist His word and become compromised with the culture.

Abraham Was Warned That Sodom Would Be Destroyed

Later, in Genesis 18 we see Jesus and two angels appear before Abraham to tell Abraham that his wife Sarah would have the son of the promise (Isaac) out of which the nation Israel and the Messiah would come.  After this message was delivered, another message by these "men" (angels) was delivered to Abraham concerning the destruction of Sodom.  The account says,

"6 Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. 17 And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, 18 since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 19 For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.”

And the
Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave,
21 I 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.”

22 Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. 23 And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24 Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? 25 Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” Genesis 18:6-25

God informed Abraham of what He was going to do to Sodom. He would be doing this to be an example to Israel so they might keep the ways of God. Israel would later see this desolation around the Dead Sea some 500 to 600 years later when they entered Canaan under the command of Joshua. A stark reminder not to deviate away from the Word of God. 

Abraham was concerned about his nephew Lot being destroyed with the rest of the city.  God told Abraham that He would not destroy the entire city of there were 50 righteous in it.  This exchange went down to asking God if he would destroy it if there were 10 righteous in it.  God said for 10, He would not destroy it.  But there were not even 10.  There were only 6; Lot, his wife, two daughters and their fiancés; Lot and his house.  But as we will see, not all of these made it either, even though they were given the opportunity.  Such it is with salvation, even when it is offered.  As it was, Sodom had gone beyond being converted to God and were given over to their corrupt minds and ways.

The Visual Sin Of Sodom And Surrounding Cities

In Genesis 19, the two angels that had been with Abraham are about to enter Sodom when they are contacted by Lot, who at that time was sitting at the entrance gate to Sodom.  This sitting by the gate indicates that he may have been some sort of leader in the city which shows how involved and compromised or somewhat tolerant he became there.  Lot welcomes the two "men" to the city and literally insists that they spend the night at his place, not in the public square as they suggested; and then, be on their way in the morning.  Why not stick around?  Lot knew the mindset and acts of the culture of Sodom; and it was evil.

This account says,

"Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground. And he said, “Here now, my lords, please turn in to your servant’s house and spend the night, and wash your feet; then you may rise early and go on your way.”

And they said, “No, but we will spend the night in the open square.”

But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate." Genesis 19:1-3

But the men of Sodom saw them with Lot and saw them go with Lot to his house.  Then the account of the visual wickedness of Sodom became manifest.

Lot and the mob of homosexual men of Sodom

Genesis 19 continues,

Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. And 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 know them carnally.

So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”

And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door".  Genesis 19:4-11

By these above verses it can be plainly seen that the men of Sodom were outwardly homosexual as that they wanted to have sex with the angels ("men") in Lot's house ("know them carnally").  It is sad and important to note that verse 4 says that this mob consisted of YOUNG  as well as old.  "Young" (naʿar) denotes a child, an adolescent - Strong's. As we will see, this is significant in what is going on today. Sick.  In verse 10, "small" can have either a meaning "little in age" or in importance, and "great", either older or more important.

 What Lot disgustingly says also adds to this view that this mob were homosexuals.  The compromised Lot (now calling them "brethren") offered his daughters to this mob of depraved males of all ages, in place of these angels.  Lot told the mob that his daughters are the very reason the two men were there (for his daughters), trying to show the mob that these angels were not homosexual.  Yet even in his compromised living among them, it appears that Lot had tried to reason with the people of the city about their wickedness in the past in that the men said, "he keeps acting as a judge".

The men of this city were so ingrained in their wicked ways that they didn't try to hide their sin.  No, but they flaunted it as a normal thing.  They not only flaunted it, but they were aggressive in their lust and tried to push and intimidate their will on to these angels and even onto Lot, who may have been part of the city government.  As said previously the mob accused Lot of always trying to act as their judge.  Perhaps he had been trying to persuade Sodom to turn away from their wicked ways.  None the less, they obviously had not listened. No one, apparently even Lot, had told them like Jonah had done in Ninevah, that their sin(s) would lead to the very destruction of themselves and their cities.  They had no idea what was to come.  Jesus said it would be the same in the last days; the very days we are in now as seen by the depravity of this present culture.

Lot Is Warned Of The Impending Destruction

Continuing in Genesis 19 we see that the major detailed sin of Sodom (blatant homosexuality) had now come to it's head as God had heard up in heaven (but knew anyway).  Now these angels reveal to Lot who they are and what their mission is as they did with Abraham.  It continues;

" 12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.” Genesis 19:12-13

So the offer of salvation goes to Lot and his entire house.  Thus, Lot warns his "son-in-laws"; but to no avail.

"14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking."

Unfortunately for these men, the compromised Lot was not believable and they basically said, "Yeah, right!" These two did not appear to feel that what was going on in Sodom was so bad; even if they may not have done the same.   Is it not the same today?  The people of Ninevah listened; But... 

Lot taken out of Sodom before it is destroyed

15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed. Genesis 19:15-17

Most people do the same today; they ignore the warnings and continue on like Jesus said would be the case in his warning. Even Lot tarried and he and his family had to be forcefully removed from the city by the angels.  The future husbands of Lot's daughters were left behind in their unbelief.  Lot asked the angels to be allowed to go to another city instead of the mountains.  One angel said,

"22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”  Genesis 19:22

God would not destroy Lot with the these cities of wickedness.  Lot not only had be out of the city before it was destroyed, but had to be at his destination.  So it will be with God's church of born again believers; before destruction comes, He will take thes who remain true to Him to their destination with Him before He starts the judgments.

Peter adds this information;

"and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, making them an example to those who afterward would live ungodly; and delivered righteous Lot, who was oppressed by the filthy conduct (unbridled lusts..Strong's)of the wicked (for that righteous man, dwelling among them, tormented his righteous soul from day to day by seeing and hearing their lawless deeds)— 2 Peter 2:6-8

Where do we stand today with this?  As we see the acts of this homosexualality in our societies and cultures throughout the world, does it oppress us to see what these people are engaged in?  Or do we tolerate it and even approve of it?  To those who engage in it or tolerate the LGTBQIA+ culture, please note again, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah as a warning and example because of this lifestyle so it would be an example of what not to be part of.  And Jesus said, that the world would be the same again and provides to us these warning as part of His love that no one should perish, including those who engage in the LGTBQIA+ lifestyle.

Sadly, Lot's wife disobeyed God's command to "not look back" and was also destroyed.  Such it is we also have a hard time believing that there are judgments of God that are immanent.  Many times we do not obey what God tells us.  Some get so used to sin that they tolerate it like the fiancés of Lot's daughters.  Some do not seem to see the urgency in departing, like Lot initially did, that which God has said he is going to destroy.  And some are like Lot's wife who grew up in the city of sin and had a hard time putting it behind without lamenting it's destruction.

God has further told us with another prophecy showing this world in the last days with a similar warning to the churches.  The warning is in Revelation 18.  Here is another angel with a declaration of what is to come.

"After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”...

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. Revelation 18:1-8

Strong is the Lord that destroyed Sodom.  As it was with Sodom, the sins of the current Babylon have also reached up to heaven to God. God is warning us through his prophetical Word that, as with Sodom, so it will be the same in the last days.  So it is today as we see the leaders and corporations of the world engaging in this and other sins; becoming more separated from God.  God is again pre warning us (HIS OWN PEOPLE) to come out of this evil system, out of this culture and it's God opposing beliefs so as not to be destroyed with them.  Yet despite this, we have churches bowing to accommodate the culture of the day.

More Biblical Warnings

Old Testament Warnings

After delivering Israel out of Egypt, and before bringing them to possess the wicked land of Canaan where Sodom had once been, God gave them the law in order to show them how they should live and what they should avoid.  He put before them a blessing and a curse.  God gave them a choice. The blessings would come if they obeyed him, and the curses and destruction would come if they did not.  God had set Israel aside from the other nations to be a special people to Him, just like He has His true church today.  They were not to be like the other nations, nor tolerate their wickedness when they went into Canaan.

God gave these commands and told Israel that the nations in Canaan (descendants of Ham) that they were to destroy, did these very things.  But God warned Israel that they were not to be involved with their sins.  Here are a few of these commands to Israel and to us, that have to do with homosexuality.

"22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." Leviticus 18:22

24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:"  Leviticus 18:20-24

13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. Levitcus 20:13

The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.  Deuteronomy 22:5

So both homosexuality and the associated cross dressing transgender things are an an "abomination" or literally translated, "extremely disgusting" to God.  There is no stoning of this today, but it is a look into how God sees these things and that there is an eternal spiritual death for those who engage in them.  These are warnings, not from an angry and demanding God who wants to deprive, but a loving God who wants to spare people from the doctrines of Satan which bring about destructions.

zeus homosexual  
Zeus (Satan) with child lover, Ganymede.  

I would say that most do not know this LGTBQIA+ lifestyle is straight from the pagan religions of Satan.  For in many of the ancient religions, the gods and goddess were homosexual, bisexual, transgender fluid sexuality, pedophiles, and committed all sorts of abominable sexual perversions as seen especially with the Roman and Greek gods and goddesses.

The photo to the left is just one example of this.  This is the Greek God Zeus (who represents Satan) shown with his child lover and cupbearer, Ganymede.  This is just one example.  There is actually an LGTBQ+ website that has 52 bios of gods and goddess that were engaged in many homosexual facets.  They know the source and are proud of it.  One quote from the beginning of the page that has this list of gods says,

"You didn't know we were so divine. People have worshiped queer gods and deities for millennia. Mortals throughout history looked to the gods for guidance, love, and acceptance regardless of sexuality. In this dive through history, we explore 52 immortals who enjoyed same-sex relationships.

 As a church, why would you approve of this?

New Testament Warnings

"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.  1 Corinthians 6:9-11

This verse shows that homosexuality is a sin that prevents one from entering God's kingdom; and like any other sin, a person can turn away from it and be forgiven.  Homosexuality is a choice like the others listed.  Those in Corinth engaged in these lifestyles, but turned away from them.

But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust. 1 Timothy 1:8-11

He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.” Revelation 21:7-8

While there is a destructive result for the homosexual lifestyle, there is a blessing for those who turn away from it; for those who overcome.  This is why it is so exasperating to see churches endorse this culture to the destruction of those in this culture AND themselves, instead of helping them to overcome to their salvation.  These cannot be true churches of God as they teach things contrary to sound doctrine as these homosexual acts as Paul told Timothy, but can be seen as a large part of the ancient religions that are still being followed today.  Yes, even in churches that claim to be Christian.

How Does God Address The LGBTQIA+ Movement? 

Today it is obvious that there is a movement that is pushing the agenda that homosexuality in various forms is normal and MUST be accepted.  It is flaunted and a very much "in-your-face" as seen in what they call "Gay Pride Month" as it is going on now as well as other avenues we will see. But what are the meaning(s) behind the letters "LGBTQIA+?

L = Lesbian; G - Gay; B = Bi sexual; T = Transgender; Q = Queer or questioning their identity; I = Intersex; A = Asexual; + = Leaves room to add more sexual identities (gender fluid)

So, we must ask the questions; (1) is this something that God accepts, and (2) is it one of the signs that truly indicate we are in the days of Lot where the homosexual accepting society was destroyed by God?  It is a serious issue.

Today many in what is called "the church", or what they believe they are in, are saying that this account with Lot and the men of Sodom did not have anything to do with homosexuality as being a sin.  Some say that God made the LGTBQIA+ that way and claim that the Bible does not condemn it.  Some say that Jesus did not address it.  Some in the church are saying that it was not that these men were homosexual that was the sin, it was that they wanted to rape the angels and Lot.  Some say you can engage in the LGBTQIA+ lifestyle and still be a Christian.  I have read all these opinions and find that they do not fit into the context of the Word of God at all.  So lets go directly to the foundation of God's view of a man and a woman as seen in His Word, not in man's mind, since God created man and is the final authority of what man is.

The Foundation: There Are Only Two Separate Sexes And Only One God Approved Marriage

God laid the foundation of his creation of only a man and a woman right at the beginning. From the beginning God said,

"18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. (Note that man did not derive from an animal)

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.

23 And Adam said:

“This is now bone of my bones
And flesh of my flesh;
She shall be called Woman,
Because she was taken out of

24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.'  Genesis 2:18-25

So, the foundation of God's (not man's) creation was etched into His Word and His pattern; which are never to be altered.  God  made a biological "Man", who was called "Man".  He then made a biologically different than Man, "Woman", out of the flesh of the "Man". God referred to this creation of a Woman as "She" and said that "She" shall be called "Woman".  Verse 24 says that this "Man", was to leave his "Father" and "Mother".  Thus, the "Father" was a man and the "Mother" was a woman by whom is the only way that a person can be born.  And "THEREFORE" "Man" was to leave his Father and Mother (two different sexes) and cling to his wife (a "Woman" a female).  Thus man and woman were created as the only two sexes there are (male and female).

God continued this theme by saying,

"27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Genesis 2:27-28

Those in a homosexual relationship cannot blessed, nor can "Be fruitful and multiply" now can they?  Procreation, a command of God, can only happen between the two separate sexes, not between two same sexes.

Jesus also declared this when he told the Pharisees by quoting Genesis 2,

"4 And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”  Matthew 19:4-6

Jesus then added that not only did God make them as two separated sexes (the only two), but that HE, joined these only two different sexes together in His only accepted form of marrying between two different sexes; male and female. He then said that man was not to separate this union of a created Man and a created Woman in a divinely created and only God-authorized union.  Who are we to change the ordinance of God?  Satan promised Eve that she could be like God if she listened to him; and millions are doing the same today.

Marriage Is A Reflection Of The Relation Between The Church And Jesus

In the New Testament the Church, those born again believers, are called the "Bride" and Jesus is called the "Bridegroom" as seen in John 3:29.  John the Baptist said,

"28 You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, ‘I am not the Christ,’ but, ‘I have been sent before Him.’ 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom’s voice John 3:28-29

In verse 29 the word "bride" is nymphē, means a woman.  The word "bridegroom" is nymphios,  just means, "bridegroom" and refers to Jesus (a male) when used in this context of vs 29 and other verses.  Thus since Jesus was in the form of a man and the Church symbolically the bride (a woman), it reflects the divine order of things.  So when the culture tries to say there is more than one gender and that men can marry men and women can marry women, they actually blaspheme and spurn this divine natural order that God set as a pattern to observe.  This very divine order declares the glory of God and is prophetical in nature of a hopefully soon time when the "Bridegroom" (Jesus) comes to retrieve his "Bride" (the Church of born again believers) to his "marriage supper of the Lamb" (Revelation 19:9).  Thus man, acting as if he is God, is trying to thwart the things of God.  He is, as Romans 1 says, worshiping himself instead of God.  And as seen in pagan Roman and Greek religions, really following Satan and his doctrine of demons. There is no good outcome in this.

So where did these other gender variations, strange list of identities, and God prohibited sexual activities among them come from? As noted, they are seen in the gods of ancient religions, but not seen in the creation God made and how He command it to be.  These gender messes were created by man via Satan to satisfy his own ever changing lusts.  These are listening to the voice of Satan in order that they may be destroyed by his demonic doctrine.  Yet, even churches are giving hardy approval to that which is not Biblical.  Part of it is coming from the false teachers themselves as they try to appeal to our emotions, and not God's word.

One such false teacher who has been leading millions astray on this and more is the late Eugene Peterson in his paraphrased "The Message" bible.  Peterson did not have a problem with homosexuality.  To Peterson it is not homosexuality that is the problem.  To Peterson the problem is that, as some say, the issue of Sodom was, a lack of "love"; that it was just "lust" without love and they were abusive to each other instead of showing love.  To Peterson, as long as there is "love" between to people of the same gender, then homosexuality was alright to him. In trying to convey his own belief on this, Peterson, while opposing God's command not to alter His Word, in fact did alter God's word in a number of places in "The Message" to further his own agenda and liberal beliefs.  This one in particular is demonic.

The chart below shows how he alter verses in God's word in Eugene Peterson's "The Message" concerning homosexuals.  Note the difference between what the Word of God really says in Romans 1:26-27 and how Petersons changed it in his book.

Romans 1:26-27: "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

The Message: "Worse followed. Refusing to know God, they soon didn't know how to be human either - women didn't know how to be women, men didn't know how to be men. Sexually confused, they abused and defiled one another, women with women, men with men - all lust, no love. And then they paid for it, oh, how they paid for it - emptied of God and love, Godless and loveless wretcheds."  

So, isn't lust without love a problem outside of marriage in view of sexual activity, period?  Yes, when it excludes the only God authorized marriage union which is between a biological Man and a Biological Woman.  But in the realm of the LGBTQ society, LOVE, in their view, between persons of different sexes or gender declarations which they are constantly coming up with, makes it normal.  But in the eyes of God, it is far from normal.  So let us look at the context of Romans 1 in the chart above and see what God says about this.  Pay attention churches!

1 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason (exchanging the Truth for the lie) God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.  Romans 1:1-32

These have invented many evil things in their messing with God's commanded creation.  So far, 64 genders have been created by this culture.  Eventually as what happened in Sodom and with Israel, God will let man have his way and allow himself to be destroyed by his own doings.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 18 says

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God....

...18 Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. (Vs 9 – abusers of themselves with mankind)

Many are being deceived. So you churches and those in them who approve of these things are bringing problems upon yourselves.  Your pastors are suppressing the truth of God in these things under the banner of love and not of God.  God has shown us in His word the way things are to be; and that is normal!  But if we had love for these people, we would not encourage them and coddle them; we would warn them that what they are engaged in is bringing judgment upon them.

Some Excuses To Justify The Homosexual Lifestyle

The Ezekiel 16 Excuse

Still some would say that the account of Sodom being destroyed was not because of homosexuality but because of the sins of Judah listed in Ezekiel 16:48-50 in which Judah was compared to Sodom.  The half brother of Jesus, Jude, would disagree with those people.  Jude said;

"5 But I want to remind you, though you once knew this, that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day; as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these, having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth as an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."  Jude 1:5-7

Those who engage in these LGTBQIA+ practices and lifestyle, have, like the angels in Jude, left their proper natural domain(s) of male and female.  Like these angels, these people give in to sexual immorality and go after "strange flesh" (unnatural same sex) of what God said was an abomination because it is outside the male and female design by God and in a union of marriage only.  And it is unfortunate that, like these angels, and like Sodom, those who live this lifestyle will come to their same destruction unless they turn away from it (and they can if they want).

While Ezekiel 16:48-49 says that Judah was like Sodom in that their sins consisted of "pride, fullness of food, and" abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.", they would overlook verse 50 which says;

"50 And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit."

They were self exalted, arrogant and committed disgusting acts before God as seen in Sodom.  Note that "Pride" was also one of their sins.  How is it today that those in the LGTBQIA+ culture declare their "pride" in being what they are; so much as to flaunt a "Gay Pride Month" even making strange displays on their bodies to further flaunt this.

Jesus Did Not Address Homosexuality Excuse

There are those, including many pastors, who say that Jesus did not address homosexuality.  These do greatly err on this in that they either do not know or understand the Word of God, nor know who Jesus is, or both; because Jesus did address it.

Let's look what Jesus said about himself, which shows us he did address homosexuality.

Speaking to the unbelieving Pharisees Jesus said,

"37 And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. 38 But you do not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life."  John 5:37-40

"45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you trust. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?”  John 5:45-47

Oh, so the "Scriptures", what we refer mostly as, The Old Testament, spoke of Jesus?  Yes!  Then shouldn't it be logical that Jesus did speak against homosexuality?  Yes!

Speaking to one of his disciples who asked Jesus to show them the Father, Jesus said,

"7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

Jesus said to him, Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. 11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves."  John 14:7-11

So Jesus just declared that He is God.  Thus whatever God spoke in the Scriptures, Jesus spoke.

John said of Jesus who he said is "the Word",

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it. John 1:1-5

God in Old Testament says,

"“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6

Jesus said in the New Testament,

"13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”  Revelation 22:13

It is quite obvious that Jesus is God and that Jesus did speak of the Words concerning the homosexual lifestyle being opposed to his creation in what is natural in His creation.  Jesus had the knowledge, the witness, and authority to speak His warnings about the days of Noah and the days of Lot and it's homosexuality as He did in Luke 17, because he was there for both.  For Genesis 18:16-22 tells us that He (the Lord) was there with Abraham and told him what He (the Lord) was going to do with Sodom (shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I will do? vs 17).  Having been there, He has also warned us too that it will be the same way in the last days before Jesus is revealed and the destruction of the Tribulation Period comes.


Is The LGTBQIA+ Mindset / Activities A Sign of the Days of Lot?

If we really understand the word of God and see what Jesus has told us about the Days of Lot, and compare that account with what we see happening today, especially when we see the other signs Jesus and the prophets gave of the end times, we must come to the conclusion that we are in those days Jesus spoke of and warned we would see.

I am going to present the arguments for this in more of a picture presentation in order to display how this homosexual culture has not just permeated the United States (it has big time), but the entire world, including governments, corporations (merchants) "churches" of which all three make up the New World order being put together at this time.  Like the saying goes, "A picture is worth a thousand words."  I could put a thousand pictures here, but these are just a small sample of how it is today.

First, as in Sodom, LGTBQIA+ is flaunted in every aspect of the culture today.  Like Sodom, Israel had deteriorated as seen in the verses in Isaiah below.  They, like Sodom actually declared their sins and did not even make an attempt to hide them.  Like with Sodom, this lifestyle and its behaviors are becoming more acceptable.  According to an ABC News article, if true, 70% of Americans support same sex marriage1.

In Quebec Canada, elementary schools were mandated to fly the gay pride flag for one week during gay pride month 2.  It is flaunted by government officials from the the federal levels, down to the mayors of cities.  It is flaunted by entertainers, corporations, news media, and even by churches.  It is now declared and praised.

Of these things God says,

"For Jerusalem stumbled, And Judah is fallen, Because their tongue and their doings Are against the Lord, To provoke the eyes of His glory. The look on their countenance witnesses against them, And they declare their sin as Sodom; They do not hide it. Woe to their soul! For they have brought evil upon themselves.  Isaiah 3:8-9

The ancient flaunting of this sin is the same today as seen in the photos below which indicate we are; "in the days of Lot"

The world and especially the United States, has come to the point to where, as Jerusalem, Judah and Sodom experienced in judgment, will soon, and suddenly, without warning come to pass in that they have, "brought evil upon themselves" (Isaiah 3:8-9)

The Way To Reverse One's Course

When you read the Scriptures, (Old Testament) you can see the love and grace of God over and over in how he dealt with the over and over apostasies of Israel.  God warned them of the consequences of turning away from him; but numerous times in their stubbornness, pride and lusts, they went their own ways.  And, they paid the price in bringing evil upon themselves as God said would happen.  Yet, when they finally would get tired of the discipline in being attacked and ruled by the very gods they turned to, they would cry out to God and repent, turn away from their sin.  And God, having pity on them (to a point) and because of the promise he made to HIS people, he would have mercy on them and forgive them.

When Jesus came, this same offer of forgiveness if one repented of sin and believed in Jesus as the Son of God and his death on the cross for our sins, was offered to the whole world.  Yes, even to those who are caught up in these sins of Sodom and other sexual sins. So it is being offered to those like in these photos above.  The result of rejecting the offer is the destruction that will soon be coming if we understand the signs of these times; which are evil.  It will come suddenly as in the days of Lot when everybody was just living their lives as if things were normal.  Then, it will be too late.  So what can you do?

A Message To Those Who Don’t Know God and His Salvation To Eternal Life Through Jesus

If you are not a believer, but you just might think that there is something to what you have read here, you may want to learn more.  God does not want anyone to perish eternally, nor to even go through the Tribulation which is seven years of Hell on Earth.  Here is a place to start to learn about the salvation that God has for you.  

The ABCs of Salvation

Some people think a personal relationship with God is something only theologians can comprehend. Actually, God’s plan of salvation is simple enough for everyone to understand. Here are the ABCs of salvation.


Admit to God that you are a sinner. All persons need salvation. Each of us has a problem the Bible calls sin. Sin is a refusal to acknowledge God’s authority over our lives. Everyone who does not live a life of perfect obedience to the Lord is guilty of sin. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23). Since none of us is perfect, all of us are sinners (Rom. 3:10-18).The result of sin is spiritual death (Rom. 6:23). Spiritual death means eternal separation from God. By God’s perfect standard we are guilty of sin and therefore subject to the punishment for sin, which is separation from God. Admitting that you are a sinner and separated from God is the first step of repentance, which is turning from sin and self and turning toward God.


Believe in Jesus Christ as God’s Son and receive Jesus’ gift of forgiveness from sin. God loves each of us. God offers us salvation. Although we have done nothing to deserve His love and salvation, God wants to save us. In the death of Jesus on the cross, God provided salvation for all who would repent of their sins and believe in Jesus. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).


Confess your faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord to others. After you have received Jesus Christ into your life, share your decision with another person. Tell your pastor or a Christian friend about your decision.  If you do not go to church or have a pastor, ask God to lead you to a church that teaches truth and the gospel.  Following Christ’s example, ask for baptism by immersion in your church as a public expression of your faith. “If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved” (Rom. 10:9-10).

Then take the time to learn from, and of God.  Study the Bible.  Get a New King James, New American Standard, or a King James version to begin your study.  The first two are easier reading.  The King James has more word study materials with it but the old language may be a little harder to read.

The time is short!
