"God's Warning to a Sinful World"

“God’s Warning to a Sinful World”



God punished the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and this is a warning to anyone else who wants to sin.   Lot lived right and was greatly troubled by the terrible way those wicked people were living.  He was a good man, and day after day he suffered because of the evil things he saw and heard.  So the Lord rescued him.  This shows that the Lord knows how to rescue godly people from their sufferings and to punish evil people while they wait for the Day of Judgment.      2Peter 2:6-9


Our days on this earth are numbered, and ONLY God knows the last day and time when we will face the Day of Judgment.  In the meantime we will be held accountable for how we live our lives on this earth, the same as the people who lived in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, cities that were filled with wickedness and depravity. 


When God had given them EVERY opportunity to REPENT and they REFUSED His invitations, time and time again, He punished the cities by burning them to ashes.  The Scripture says: “This is a WARNING to anyone else who wants to sin.” 


We are living in a wretched, sinful world NOW, and it is probably worse than the days of Sodom and Gomorrah, so if God punished the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah for their sinfulness, WHAT and WHEN will the nations of this earth face as punishment for the present wickedness that is prevalent throughout the land.   


There is ONE redeeming factor, God rescued Lot, Abram’s nephew, from destruction, because He lived right, he was a good man who believed in and worshiped the ONE TRUE GOD.  This shows us that the Lord will rescue His godly Children and punish the evil people.  I believe that we are facing some PERILOUS times and one day God will say, “ENOUGH!”  and send Jesus to come and RAPTURE His Children from this SIN-LADEN world.  Are you READY?


If you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, and are living in sin continually, then you will experience the wrath of the HOLY RIGHTEOUS GOD of this Universe.  He will bring punishment on the wicked.  However, He is giving you the opportunity, NOW, to come to Him with a TRULY REPENTANT HEART, and CONFESS your sins to Him asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be rescued from the coming doom of this wretched, sinful, old world.  Do it NOW, while you still can.  He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
