Devotional Short Note to Genesis Chapter 19 


In those days, the same kind of Jurisprudence of “Equality Perception of humans before the law”, morally evil, or sinful, or in defect or not, that exists and is upheld in the liberal and conservative Catholic and secular Jewish controlled Supreme Court of the USA and California (and its linked states) today in 2018, existed in Sodom and Gemorrah and the other cities. Feministic rights, Women Ordination of priestesses in the cult, homosexuals in the pagan cults [as cuneiform tablets from that time are revealing and a German book on the role of the gala priest in cuneiform texts just revealed that]. So is it “progressive thinking”? No. It existed in the year Ishmael and Abraham was circumcised, when Abraham was 99 years old in 2141 BCE. LGBTQH operates under the epistemology fallacy that there is no such thing as sin, just bad and good results and humans, by consensus, using their sensibility determines what good and bad is and do not let any god or God and his, her or His Torah tells them what to do and not to do. His Torah is outdated and modern Jurisprudence is for them “progressive” and updated, setting aside any religious input in legal philosophy. So a transsexual, or the long list of the same, rights must be defended and upheld, even to the extent that the traditional view of families are demolished. Welcome back in Sodom in 2141 BCE when Ishmael was 13 and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom (Genesis 19:1).

Lot lived there because it is not the will of God for faithful people to climb on a large pole and live in a box away from the sinful of this world in seclusion.

But Sodom was overran with demons and humans as their agents.

Two angels came to Sodom but Lot did not recognized them as such. Moses described them as such.

Hospitality is Lot’s culture as it was that of his uncle Abraham earlier. The men should rest in his house after footwashing. Jesus installed the footwashing ceremony in John 13 before the Lord Supper, not as a cultural habit but as a ceremonial connected lesson of humility of the Son of God emptying Himself for us. Even the papacy recognized the lasting effects of Jesus’ words and regularly wash the feet of the cardinals as online photos shows. In Adventism it is part of their Lord’s Supper procedures. Many shun the experience as “embarrassing” and “downgraded” and do not turn up for church or suddenly had a phonecall to attend to.

The angels said they would stay in the broad place the whole night (Genesis 19:2). The public square for visitors.

Lot knew the consequences very well and insisted “and he urged them greatly” = וַיִּפְצַר-בָּם מְאֹד (Genesis 19:3).

The streets are too dangerous and corrupt. Lot knew well. He gave them unleavened bread to eat “and they did eat” = וַיֹּאכֵלוּ (Genesis 19:3). Yeast is a symbol of sin and that is why the Lord's Supper is made with unleavened bread and the wine without alcohol. In Seventh-day Adventism this is the biblical practice of not playing around with these symbols in the worship and company of angels. Lot also.

But the LGBTQH league came paying a visit with animal instincts running high: “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both young and old, all the people from every quarter.” = טֶרֶם, יִשְׁכָּבוּ, וְאַנְשֵׁי הָעִיר אַנְשֵׁי סְדֹם נָסַבּוּ עַל-הַבַּיִת, מִנַּעַר וְעַד-זָקֵן:  כָּל-הָעָם, מִקָּצֶה (Genesis 19:4). Ever heard the expression: “Hold your horses”. Self-control. They lacked it. Freedom of expression. In the absolute. Religious and non-religious are the same. No difference, for all are humans.

They wanted to know them: “bring them out unto us, that we may know them” = הוֹצִיאֵם אֵלֵינוּ, וְנֵדְעָה אֹתָם (Genesis 19:5). This word “know” is an euphemism for sexual intercourse. Out of kindness Moses used the euphemism but one must assume they said it very similar as Hollywood movies say it, the forbidden unprofessional jargon.

Lot knew the danger: “And shut the door after him” = וְהַדֶּלֶת, סָגַר אַחֲרָיו (Genesis 19:6).

Through the closed door he begged them to leave. He even suggested that he had two daughters instead of the angels (Genesis 19:8).

There was no police-system worthy of calling for. Old and young came and normally your old people were the judges of the city acting as prosecutors and court in the gate where Lot sat when the angels came.

Lot’s circumstance are explained in Genesis 19:9 in the words of his accusers: “'This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he wants to judge seriously [because of repetition of the word the intensive of the root meaning is brought out]; now will we deal worse with thee, than with them.' And they pressed sore upon the man, upon Lot” =  וַיֹּאמְרוּ הָאֶחָד בָּא-לָגוּר וַיִּשְׁפֹּט שָׁפוֹט--עַתָּה נָרַע לְךָ מֵהֶם וַיִּפְצְרוּ בָאִישׁ בְּלוֹט.

Violently they tried to break the door. Populism and mass hysteria work that way. Blinded by their own sin they lost all sense of sensibility and proper behavior. God and His morals are trampled upon. They do as they feel right to do and they felt wrong is also right. Civil right activism and Adventism do not belong together. It is an either or participation with a locked door in between.

Lot had opened the door to speak to them but only slightly, but they managed to push their way unto Lot and at that point the angels step in and they blinded the men (Genesis 19:10). They were all spiritually blind already. Now they were physically blind as well. They were already in Lot’s house and struggled to leave in search of the door (Genesis 19:11).

The angels in the form of men told Lot to bring all his relatives out of “the place” = מִן-הַמָּקוֹם (Genesis 19:12).

They then announced that the Lord has sent them to destroy Sodom.

And it is not just a building fire, the whole city and cultivated areas.

Lot spoke to his sons-in-law, but they refused to leave the comfort zones of this beautiful valley of “like the Garden of Eden” as Genesis earlier said (Genesis 19:14).

“But he seemed unto his sons-in-law as one that is making a joke” = וַיְהִי כִמְצַחֵק, בְּעֵינֵי חֲתָנָיו. Unbelief. Choked by chains of circumstances: Job-security, Conformation, adaption, close association. Cannot leave. Sorry.

The angels blinding action moved everyone back to their own quarters until the morning. The night-life is over, “the morning arose” = וּכְמוֹ הַשַּׁחַר עָלָה (Genesis 19:15).

Lot and his wife and daughters were told to leave because LGBTQH is equal to iniquity in the eyes of the Lord (Genesis 19:15).

LGBTQH may say, you are targeting us the “soft ones” the “ones who cannot help to be so”. No. The secret of recovery lies in the eyes. Stop looking and admiring human bodies. Refuse to look. Destroy bad photos. Bad videos. Bad books. Burn them. Refuse to look at TV “just beauty” shows. Distance yourselves from some friends. Select others. Consecrate yourself wholly to God and read His book many times. Pray a lot. And you will be surprised: You will be free of this disease in your life. There is balsam in Gilead. There is overcoming sin. God’s law can be kept fully. No human weakness is too strong for the Holy Spirit. So the secret is the eyes. Your eyes. What you see with the senses is the key avenue of the sin and its magnetic power over you. Start immediately and rejoice in freedom. Clean and guilt-free. Saved with all the other faithful. Leave the city with Lot and the angels.

“Escape for your life; look not behind you, neither stay you in all the Plain; escape to the mountain, otherwise you be swept away” = הִמָּלֵט עַל-נַפְשֶׁךָ--אַל-תַּבִּיט אַחֲרֶיךָ וְאַל-תַּעֲמֹד בְּכָל-הַכִּכָּר  הָהָרָה הִמָּלֵט, פֶּן-תִּסָּפֶה (Genesis 19:17).

Lot seemingly talked as one with Arthritis. He cannot climb the mountain and requested to stay in a small city (Genesis 19:18-20). So Lot went in at Zoar, a countryside town. There is a time when the remnant will be asked to flee the cities not to get the plaques of God to the urban centers upon them. That time has come. Dr. Ki-Gon Kim, a New Testament retired professor of Sahmyook University preached this way three weeks ago on Andrew Kang video ministry in Seoul. The Lord brought me to the countryside in 2009 already.

At sunrise Lot arrived a Zoar (Genesis 19:23).

Fire and brimstone came from the Lord “out of heaven” = מִן-הַשָּׁמָיִם and burnt Sodom and Gemorrah (Genesis 19:24).

It is not out of a missile or a nuclear bomb. It is from God directly and this event was a window of Hell to come. A type of the Hell to come. The last War of Christ on the Evil in the absolute destruction of all evil.

Cities, plain, people, and the agriculture [flora] of the area “and that which grew upon the ground” = וְצֶמַח הָאֲדָמָה were destroyed (Genesis 19:25).

Lot’s wife was a city-girl and enjoyed the night-life. She wanted to see what she is going to never see again. She looked back and became what the Dead Sea is today: salt. That is where Sodom and Gemorrah was and archaeology has found graveyards dating to 2141 BCE on the eastern side of the Dead Sea but no city.

Because of Abraham God rescued Lot and took Lot from Zoar to the mountain to a cave (Genesis 19:30).

The incident with the daughters of Lot is then described in horrorful detail which is the crime of incest.

People may say that the Torah of Moses was not yet known in those days and thus they acted out of innocence. No. The Torah of Moses was given not because it did not exist but because Israel has forgotten the aspects of God.

The Torah was since Adam and incest as a crime was all along known. The fact that the Law is not spelled out so early in the Book of Genesis is not because it did not exist but because Moses only briefly cited here and there on these millennia before him since he wanted to get to his own time and God’s renewal of His laws with the remnant. What the ancients remembers and did not have to explicit be reminded of, the people in Moses day in 1448 BCE had to see explicitly written and spelled out.

There was a scholar Walther Eichrodt who wrote a Theology on the Old Testament and his error is that he counted the number of words in the Old Testament and when he found Torah mentioned almost never in Genesis, he concluded that in those times there existed no Torah. But when Torah is mentioned a lot, their knowledge “increased” in an evolutionary and developmental way. Nonsense. It is the other way around. When nothing is said they knew it well. When it is explicitly mentioned by God it is because they do not know it well.
