The city of Sodom had turned their backs on GOD for the sake of a good time. The population preferred a good time and fun and the freedom to choose for themselves what they wished to do. It was party time.
When Abraham learned of God’s plan to destroy the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, he asked God if He will spare them if He can find fifty innocent, godly people. God reassures Abraham that if He finds fifty righteous people, he will spare the city for their sake. Abraham then asks about a lesser and lesser number until down to ten people as God answers, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it”
When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left, and Abraham returned home.GEN: 18: 22-33 (paraphrase)
The answer for the rest of the story was that there was one. Lot.
Lot gave a haven for the messengers from GOD. Lot was given safe haven before the storm hit Sodom.
Prayer is a common language. Pray now for the American people. As for those whose serious adventure at rebelling against those trying to save our lives is just now beginning. GOD will not destroy us for we have many more than just 10 righteous people all countries, cultures, colors and beliefs. However there is an irony to the story. Our destroyers live among us. Our destroyers are the accomplices of the virus.
The population preferred a good time and fun and the freedom to choose for themselves what they wished to do. It was party time. What happens to the rest because of their actions is not, apparently, their concern. The irony is that their actions will affect their friends, their relatives, their neighbors and those who are risking their lives to help others. Freedoms are never free. We will be affected by our own people. Our own neighbors and our own associates.
Jesus put it this way: GOD is LOVE. GOD set down a set of rules to make life easier in a world where the desires of people to take advantage of others would require more LOVE at this time in history than ever before. Millions and Billions of people around the world have risen to the task at hand. Those who continue to take advantage of us for their own selfishness will reap their own rewards. If not giving the virus to themselves, in living the rest of their lives knowing that they were responsible for the lives that they affected. When they say to themselves it was not their fault, the images in the night will never go away and they will never have peace. A banner such as Christian, or Catholic, or Jew, or Muslim or any other does not necessarily reflect ones true behavior. You cannot hide the truth from GOD.
DO NOT KILL
LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORS AS YOURSELF
DO UNTO OTHERS AS YOU WOULD HAVE THEM DO UNTO YOU
Prayer is a common language. I ask you to Pray now for the American people and those around the world who did not invite the cornova virus into their lives.
For those whose serious adventure at rebelling against those trying to save our lives is just now beginning. We have many more than just 10 righteous people fighting to save us. However there is an irony to the story. Our destroyers live among us. We have it on Jesus authority that those that do the tasks that a Loving GOD looks for will be with Him in paradise. As for the others, they will refuse to open the gate.
Only GOD can help us now. And GOD is among us also.
