“Sodom, Pompeii, Hiroshima”

Posted: July 13, 2013 in Japan, Rapture, Salvation, Security

What do these three cities have in common?  Sodom was destroyed by fire and brimstone for its wickedness in the days of Abraham.  Pompeii was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius.  Hiroshima in Japan was reduced to rubble by an atomic bomb during World War II.

But wait!  Up until the days of the prophet Isaiah, Sodom stood as the universal symbol of depravity and shameful disgrace.  But then Judah (the southern kingdom in Israel) became the object of scorn and ridicule (Isaiah 1:10).  It’s hard to believe that a nation that had been chosen and blessed by God had degenerated into a condition that was even worse than Sodom.  This is what happens to those who dismiss God from their thinking.  May I ask you to read Romans 1:18-32 to see what God says about those who turn from the truth and believe the lie of humanism (Romans 1:25; 2 Thessalonians 2:11).

The Jews had been called upon by God to be His witnesses to the people who passed through the land of Israel from Europe, Africa, and Asia (Isaiah 44:8).  Rather than maintaining their privileged relationship with God, they degenerated even farther than the heathen nations around them.

So God used the wicked and idolatrous Babylonians to chasten His people, the Jews.  They spent 70 years in captivity before being allowed to return to Israel to rebuild their temple and live there once again.  It is the land that God promised to give to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and their descendants (Genesis 15:18-21).  It actually goes from the River of Egypt and from the Mediterranean Sea over to the River Euphrates.  Woe to those who are trying to take it from the Jews.

Perhaps you’ve heard people say, “If God doesn’t judge the United States for its moral and spiritual wickedness, He will have to apologize to Sodom.”  It’s absolutely shocking to hear and read about some of the things that are going on not only behind closed doors but right out in public.  Lewdness is an outward display of moral filth without shame.  It is seen in public and in the movies and on television.  Think about the 50 million babies who have been aborted in our country.

Of all the people who have lived on this earth, we who live in the United States have had freedoms and opportunities that the rest of the people on earth have envied.  We still have the freedom to pray in public, to own Bibles, to share our faith with others without fear of physical harm, and to worship God in a church of our choice.  But this freedom is slowly being taken from us.  One day the people who act lawlessly will be governed by the lawless one known also as the “Antichrist” (2 Thessalonians 2:8, 9).

Whether you know it or not, the persecution of true Christians is intensifying all around the world. The push is on for all those in “Christendom” to get together with other religions and form a one world religion. This is what the Bible predicts will happen (Revelation 17, 18).  This organization is called “Mystery Babylon, the great, the mother of harlots and of the abominations of the earth” (Revelation 17:5).  Will you and the religious group to which you belong be a part of this organization?  God commands true believers to come out of this apostate group lest they receive of her plagues” (Revelation 18:4).
