CRY UNTO GOD!
The Holy Word of God tells us,
“Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot…even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man (Jesus) is revealed” Luke 17:28, 30.
As we hear in recent news reports that gay marriage is legal throughout all 50 states in the US; as Christians are being sued for not providing certain services to gays, which would otherwise compromise their faith; as we see Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Networks (GLSEN – perverted sex clinics) rise up in America’s public schools (ages K-12) to openly pervert the minds of little children; as we see 10-year-olds being taught sodomy – literally x-rated “how to” – in the name of “sex education” in public schools, teaching little children abominations and, quite frankly, raping their minds; as we see the Boy Scouts of America, which was once a Christian organization, and certainly still claims to be a Christian organization, approve admission of gay children, and then gay adult leaders, are we not living in a time likened to the days of Lot?
What was happening in the days of Lot? God sent His angels into Sodom (the city named after its prominent sin) to get righteous Lot and his family out, before God rained fire and brimstone on the city on account of their gross sins (Genesis 18-19).
Jesus said He would be revealed (return) when there comes a time such as the days of Lot. We are living in such a time as the days of Lot right now!
God said in Genesis 18:20-21,
“Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto Me and, if not, I will know.”
God is all-knowing, but it appears He did not allow Himself to look upon the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah, but rather heard the cries of the righteous one living in Sodom.
There was one righteous man living at the gate of Sodom, whose name was Lot, the nephew of another righteous man, Abraham. You can believe he was the one who cried out to God continually to do something about the rampant lasciviousness in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The report in Genesis 18-19 states how the Lord’s attention was drawn to the cries about Sodom and Gomorrah, so then He investigated those cries that went up to Him, which brought about His wrath and the fiery destruction of those cities.
I can’t speak for anyone else, but my cries go up often to God about the abominable sins in this world that are more than I can bear, especially those committed against children and against the household of faith.
I think about the children in Syria and Iraq that have been tortured and killed by the Islamic State and many of them have seen their parents tortured and killed. I cry out, “Lord, come quickly!” And I cry for them, because of their pain and suffering.
I think about the little children sitting in American schools, in mixed groups, girls and boys as young as 10, perhaps younger, watching and listening as a Planned Parenthood instructors explain to them, very explicitly, how to commit sodomy! I literally cry, as I pray for these children, and I cry out, “Lord, come quickly!” (If this is abhorring to you, please visit the Home Education page, even if you don’t believe homeschooling is something you can do. There is valuable information for you on that page.)
When enough of God’s people cry out to Him because of the gross sins all around us, the Lord will come for His people, and the great tribulation will begin against the wicked.
This crying out about such sins and the torture and pain being suffered by God’s people, and even little children, just as the innocent cried out from Sodom, this crying out will bring our Lord to the rescue, as when the angels of the Lord rescued Lot and his family, before God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
Please consider this:
If God’s people fail to cry out about the sins we are aware of, urging God’s attention and deliverance from this “cup of iniquity,” they will cry out when the torture, pain, suffering, abominations and martyrdom reaches their own children and themselves!
Beloved, examine your heart and your prayer life. Are you waiting for the mayhem to reach you and your own family before you will cry out to God, so he will hear our cries and rescue us all; or are you too distracted with your own comforts to cry out for our brothers, sisters, their little children and elderly who are suffering untold agony? Just because many of them live in another country, that doesn’t mean they are not our brothers and sisters, whose grief we should also bear. Many are also suffering in the United States, especially the children.
We had all better cry out to God for those who suffer now, otherwise, we will be crying out for our own selves later.
The antichrist will take over the entire world (Revelation 13:16-18), and even before he does, one fourth of the world’s population will be killed:
“And I looked, and behold a pale horse, and his name that sat on him was Death, and hell followed him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with the sword, and with hunger and with death, and with the beasts of the earth” Revelation 6:8.
The killing has begun, friends, during the pretribulation “birth pains” the world is experiencing right now (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
The Holy Word of God tells us,
“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ” Galatians 6:2.
“…members should have the same care for one another, and whether one member suffers, all members suffer, or one member is honored, all the members rejoice” 1 Corinthians 12:25-26.
Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
