|Why God destroyed ALL peoples in Sodom and Gomorrah|
Luke 17:28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
The city of Sodom was filled with people – both men, women, and children living their daily lives unawares that they were targeted for destruction and perhaps would have repented if Jesus had visited them! Or were they so evil that everyone needed to be destroyed.
They carried an evil so great, that without its destruction would spread throughout the world. We may blame the God of the OT as being blood thirsty, but it was God’s grace to save the entire mankind lest there be another flood.
What were they spreading? a faith that joins itself to the core with Satan and for which there is no escape once it takes over the city. In Sodom and Gomorrah, God destroyed all the men, along with All the women and children.
Why? The men were not only worshiping Satan but joining themselves to become one flesh with Satan through anal sex with the temple priests. Sex is one of the most powerful way to join two flesh together like in marriage.
In this case, they were married to Satan. Hence, it was an utter abomination. Therefore, when they return home to be in bed with their wives, the demonic spirit within will possess the family.
Therefore, God destroyed everything including all the buildings and places of idol worship, because the Satanic spirit was intricately bound to the city. They were no longer themselves but governed by the Spirit of darkness.
They were ALL were killed including all the women and children of whom some liberals would see as innocent and God seemingly blood thirsty. But God had to destroy the entire city before it spreads to other cities.
When the Angel of the Lord came in discretely to visit Lot to bring him out of the danger zone, the whole city including women and children moved in because the had the same spirit of anti-Christ.
It happened before the Cross of Calvary, and on this side of the Cross we should not be persecuting innocent children for their God would be asking us an account for it, and we should not mention Sodom and Gomorrah for even these abominable people were more righteous than those who had rejected Jesus in person.
God was not overtly harsh, but full of grace and mercy. If they had not destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, the spiritual abomination with Satan processing many would have spread to the nations.
Many of us live in a world unawares of the forces of light and darkness, until like Sodom and Gomorrah we didn’t see the grace of God in Jesus Christ.
We even reject God of the Old Testament failing to see that the God of Israel is One God, the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.
In our modern society, the same spiritual atmosphere is prevailing. The prostitute having sex will also be possessed by the demonic spirit residing in her clients. She will in turn pass on that spirit to others. Similarly for the man who have sex with many other women or with other men.
When sin abounds, God’s grace abounds even more. When they brought the adulterer to be stoned by Jesus in capital punishment (just as some of us would want to wipe out gays),
Jesus showed the law minded Pharisees their hidden sins so awful that they went away ashamed. To the prostitute Jesus touched with the touch of a caring, merciful God, and said to go and sin no more.
When Jesus touched the womanprostitute, it released the woman bounded by the spirits within. Instead of touching other gods, Jesus touched her and filled her with the Spirit of God thus chasing away the demons in the spirit, soul and body.
The opposite of being filled by the demonic spirit in Sodom is to be filled by the Holy Spirit in the upper room in Jerusalem where Jesus is the baptiser as we can only be filled if we want to fullness of Christ in our lives. We are asked to touch God, to join ourselves with the Holy Spirit by being one with the Body of Christ.
Therefore, through the wine and the bread, it becomes the blood and the broken body to enter into and be one with Christ.
Hence, each time we take communion mindfully, we are joining ourselves to Jesus Christ, that His righteousness will be our righteousness, and that His broken body becomes life and healing unto our own bodies.
Choose life this day, eat and be filled of the body of Christ.
