From New York to
California, from the Governor’s mansions to the
classroom, from the pulpit to the military homosexuality has become the accepted
lifestyle. Gays are eating and drinking (partying and parading), marrying and
giving in marriage and multitudes are anxious to give them acceptance and
That’s the way it was in the days of Lot.
Lot took the two angels to his house “the
men of the city, even the men of Sodom,
compassed the house round, both old
all the people from
every quarter: And
they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are
the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may
know them” (Gen. 19:4-5). Sodom
and Gomorrah didn’t have Governors, mayors,
pastors, a military and classrooms like America has today, but it’s obvious
that whatever they had the old,
the young and
all the people from
every quarter approved of the
Homosexuality still existed
after God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah
with fire and brimstone, but it lost its wide acceptance and a negative stigma
was attached to it that lasted for hundreds of years. People in the Old
Testament called it a sin (Gen. 19:15, 24-25) and many people in modern times
called homosexuals derogatory names.
Jesus was talking about the signs of His Second Coming when He said, “as
it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold,
they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out
of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them
all” (Luke 17:28-29). Our Lord’s words are about more than homosexuality, but
they definitely include revelers partying, parading, drinking, marrying, and
celebrating gay marriage; they definitely include politicians and unbelieving
pastors with a form of godliness giving their approval to a lifestyle that the
Bible clearly says grieves God (Gen. 18:20); and they definitely include a
reference to the days of Lot which is a prediction that society will go full
circle and return to the wide
acceptance and approval of this abomination at the end of the age.
When God created Adam and Eve He said they would die, if they ate the
fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil (Gen. 3:1-3).
But Satan told Eve, “Ye shall not surely die”
(Gen. 3:4). They ate the fruit and eventually died.
Paul advised the Colossians
to mortify their fornication and uncleanness or the wrath of God would come upon
them (Col. 3:5-6). John said the abominable will be cast into the Lake of Fire
where they will die the second death (Rev. 21:8). This is easy to understand,
but many others say, “You won’t be cast into the Lake of Fire.
You won’t die the Second Death.” They believe the father of lies called Satan
and they will eventually die the Second Death. Those who love them will tell
them and try to prevent this from happening. Telling them that lifestyle is a
sin is not judging. The Word of God says it is wrong and the issue is settled.
We don’t have to judge to know how God feels about it. Concerning Sodom, notice, in the
passage quoted above, that Jesus God destroyed them all.
In his letter to the Church
at Rome, Paul said God will give the homosexuals
up because they have exchanged the truth for a lie (Rom.
1:2425). God is the author of the Scriptures. He called homosexuality an
abomination. He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. He hasn’t
changed. Many know these easy-to-understand teachings are in the Bible. But they
have listened to Satan, abandoned the truth and accepted a lie.
The end of the age has arrived. The Scriptures don’t say people can
accept Jesus as their Saviour without accepting Him as their Lord. The
Scriptures don’t say people can get saved and keep their favorite little sins.
The Scriptures don’t say people can get saved and live a perverted lifestyle.
The Scriptures say repent, be born again, give up your sins and become a new
People can let Christ change them and receive them into heaven. But
people need to understand that the modern applause and wide acceptance of the
gay lifestyle means that society has
gone full circle. Society has left the days when homosexuality was
condemned and returned to the days when homosexuality has wide acceptance.
Society has returned to the days of Lot and
this is a sign that the end of the age is near.
