Some people think that homosexuality slowly crept into the world, but it’s been here since the beginning of time. The devil is the father of perversion. Satan is worse than the Catholics, because he’s the founder of it.
What are You going to do to Sodom and Gomorrah?
“And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? Son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.1
And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do anything till thou become thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven;
And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that, which grew upon the ground.
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.2
And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the LORD:
And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt” (Gen 19:12-29).
1 Lot had been blessed by God, so he was wealthy and probably influential, but his own family didn’t believe him for they preferred the sin of the world over God’s righteousness.
2 Lot and his family had been told not to look back, but his wife disobeyed and therefore she was punished. It’s been reported there is a mountain of salt at the southern extremity of the Dead Sea.
The valley of Siddim, where Sodom and Gomorrah had been are full of brimstone and salt pits. This has grown into a vast lake, which, because of the brimstone still floating in it, is called Laces Asphaltitis or Lake of Brimstone, and because of the alt, Mare Salsum or Salt Sea.
Concerning these lakes, Gaius Julius Solinus, a Latin grammarian, of the 4th century, said.
A long way off from Jerusalem, there is a woeful spectacle, of a country to be seen, which was blasted from heaven and appeared by the blackness of the earth falling all to cinders. There was in that place before this, two cities, one called Sodom, the other Gomorrah, where if an apple grew, though it appeared to be ripe, was not at all edible.
Its outer skin contained nothing within it except a stinking smell, mingled with ashes and if ever so lightly touched, sent forth a smoke and the rest fell into a light dust of powder.
The basin of the Dead Sea has been investigated by an American expedition under Lieutenant Lynch, and the results are that there were two lakes; one was 13 feet deep and the other 1,300 feet deep.
It has been suggested that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was brought about by volcanic agency. Furthermore, they report that they are satisfied that the account which Scripture gives of this catastrophe ought to be taken in its utmost literality.
Fire and Brimstone Explained
Brimstone (man now calls it “sulfur/sulphur”) is a lemon-yellow colored stone. Brimstone means, “burning stone” or, “the stone that burns.”
When plain brimstone is exposed to the air, nothing happens, but if a match is put to it, it will burn in a peculiar way, like a liquid fire, and it emits noxious fumes.
The stone melts like wax but the dripping is a peculiar thick fire, like a piece of wax on fire. As it burns, it has a rich, fluorescent-type deep cobalt bluish color.
It is an interesting, sticky, “acidy”-type burning fire. The little drops burn for some time. Ancient peoples sometimes used brimstone as a type of match.
A burning match held under brimstone causes it to catch on fire. It then melts and drips like wax and gives off fumes that do something to your nostrils. The fumes should not be breathed in, it is dangerous.
.Brimstone starts out in the molten rock under the earth’s surface. It spews out in the lava of volcanoes and often comes to the surface of the earth from volcanoes and hot springs.
Sulfur deposits have been found on the Italian island of Sicily where it lay near the surface of the earth and also Louisiana deep underground near the Gulf of Mexico.
One quote from the internet said,
A hundred years ago, people used to make a suspension of sulfur powder in molasses and drink it as a health tonic.
Brimstone/sulfur has many commercial/industrial applications. It is often converted to sulfuric acid which is so widely used that it is known as the “king of chemicals.”
Brimstone/sulfur is used for things such as fertilizer, car batteries, chemical/petroleum refining, paper, rayon, film, automobile tires, paint, detergents, explosives, matches, food processing (sulfur dioxide in food preservation can be harmful), drugs, and dyes.
It is said that sulfur is used at some stage of almost everything we eat, wear, or use. It is used to bleach fabrics. Too much sulfur dioxide in the air can kill people when they breathe it in because it causes choking and suffocation. It causes the throat and breathing passages to become irritated and closed up.
