A Dying Nation

Sodom and Gomorrah afire by Jacob de Wet II, 1680

THIS EARLY MORNING I woke with a profound fullness of the grave sickness that has enveloped this nation. I watched on the news, weeping with grief, as an abominable Dylan Mulvaney strolled through the hallways of our White House, where in times past great men such as Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan walked. Or, what about the Biden/Harris Administration assigning the position of deputy assistant secretary in the Office of Nuclear Energy to Sam Brinton! – and still, yet, the resident Joe Biden inviting drag queens to our White House advocating that drag is for our “children”!? It’s truly enough to cause bile to come up into your throat!

In prayer, I brought this up before the Majesty of our great and awesome Creator God this morning. And the thoughts of SODOM came to mind. Why were Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain destroyed!? Certainly, homosexuality along with all sexual immoralities was rampant in other cities of the world at that time!? Yet, unlike Sodom and Gomorrah, they were not destroyed. Why were they not!?

We learn from God’s living word – the Holy Bible – that Sodom and Gomorrah were very flourishing cities! –

“ … ‘ They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; …’ – Luke 17:28.

Our Lord Jesus telling us that those cities had a great economy. Truly, Sodom and Gomorrah were at such a crossroads of materialism, pleasures, and prosperity, that its citizens, like our nation today, were blind to their grave SICKNESS!

Like it was in those two booming towns, here in America where are the God-fearing, bleeding red, white, and blue Americans weeping for our nation!? Are they still yelling at their televisions as they watch Fox News!? Where are the petitions to have the resident Biden impeached!? – if nothing more than allowing our southern border to be wide open! Well, like it was in those cities, there is growing in our nation a greater number of individuals not having any respect or knowledge of the true LORD God! In the end, there weren’t even ten people of any good moral character –

“Then he said, ‘Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?’” – Genesis 18:32.

In the end, only Lot, a nephew to patriarch Abraham, was deeply grieved by the deplorable social sickness, and the immoral lifestyles, in which the cities of the plain were engaged in.

The prophet Ezekiel WARNS us in this two-fold prophecy –

“’ As I live,’ says the Lord GOD, ‘neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done.’” – the Lord God here originally speaking concerning Jerusalem. In this end-time speaking concerning modern-day Israel and modern-day America and the British Commonwealth, the nations from which the once British Commonwealth was formed. Our great nations are committing such sins neither the original Sodom nor her daughter cities had done!

“’ Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had PRIDE, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.’”

And indeed, our Lord Jesus says, ’ For you have the poor with you always, …’ – certainly in this present evil age. But He adds, “ … ‘and whenever you wish you may do them good; …’ – Mark 14:7.

We certainly had the wealth in the U.S. and the U.K. at one time to ‘strengthen the hand of the poor and needy’! Didn't we!?

Emma Charlton wrote in 2018 –
“Almost one child in every seven across the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) live on extremely low income and the share rising in many countries. …

The OECD says redistributing benefits and helping parents to find stable, full-time employment are key to addressing the issue. If all parents from poor families were in paid employment, the poverty rate for individuals in households with children would fall from 11% to less than 6% on average. …

The UN’s special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights has recently investigated poverty levels in the UK. Despite rising employment levels, economic growth and pockets of wealth, a fifth of Britons remain in poverty. …

UNICEF said 5.4 million children died from mostly preventable causes before their fifth birthday …” 1
Here in the U.S. The number of unemployed persons rose by 48 thousand to 6.01 million in November, while the number of employed decreased by 138 thousand to 158.5 million! 2

I witness in our cities of the great United States of America, innumerable churches on nearly every street corner in every community. Yet, in these same communities where these innumerable churches reside, I see the terrible suffering of our poor, our widows, and our orphans! What about these some 1,500 megachurches in the U.S. alone!? Certainly, they rake in an average of some $6.5 million each year!? As Rock legend, Steve Miller sings - where are these megachurches to help “feed the babies who don’t have enough to eat. Shoe the children with no shoes on their feet. House the people livin’ in the street. Oh, oh, there’s a solution”! Here’s the solution – follow the command of our Lord Jesus Christ! ’ And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. [the first FOUR of the Ten Commandments] 31) And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ [the last SIX of the Ten Commandments] There is no other commandment greater than these’ – Mark 12:30-31.

"' IF you love Me ['if you are loyal to Me'] KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS'" - John 14:15.

“’ And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit’” – Ezekiel 16:49-50.

According to a 2017 article by Raymond O’ Lenic in Our Economy -
“While traditional churches are losing members left right and center, mega-churches – as they’re being called – are growing around the world. … And all this is big business. According to CNN, the US mega-churches bring in on average about $6.5 million each year. They sell DVDs, self-help books and receive big donations from their congregations. Some open ‘franchises’, or new churches, all over the world – promoting themselves in the same way a major brand would.” 3
So, there you have it! The whole fabric of these cities was rotten right down to the core! In Sodom, it was chic to proudly announce whether one was lazy or slough. And, like in this nation, in which a larger majority of our peoples are “living off the government” rather than holding down a job.

In Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain it no longer shocked their sensibility if one saw a homeless person impoverished, or the worship of a modern-day false idol – such as Beyoncé. All of these lifestyles and practices were tolerated! Not one person was picketing their White House! They announced in their cities, as we do now – “We can rest easy tonight, because our families are validated and because now we’re allowed to love who we love, which sounds odd to say, but Americans can now love who we love”!

Like Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain, the Creator of the heavens and earth, the ultimate Judge, see all our sins. The LORD God looks down from Their thrones and sees our dying nation. Americans are legalizing, legitimizing, validating, and endorsing everything we once held to be a “mental illness.”

Like Sodom became, the United States of America (as well as the United Kingdom and her Commonwealth Nations) are now at the point in which social and sexual values are not bound by any stable spiritual or social rule – lifestyles can be whatever each individual wants. Rules and laws are being passed for people of these abominable lifestyles in record numbers – like Californication’s new Pedophilia Law SB 145, which “would exempt from mandatory registration” as a sex offender “a person convicted of certain offenses involving minors if the person is not more than 10 years older than the minor and if that offense is the only one requiring the person to register.” The measure would allow a judge to decide if an adult who engages in oral or anal sex with a child must register as a sex offender if that person is within ten years of the age of the victim. With every turn of the corner, every television commercial, and nearly every teacher in nearly every school, the phrase “No one has the right to tell you what to do or be!” is echoing loudly! Like Sodom, our social atmosphere is permeated with sex abuse!

And here in America, it’s not just the “swinging” or LGBTQ+ (and now they’ve added additional letters, IA – intersex and asexual) life. It’s the “get and do what I want” life!

Friends, God Most High’s – the CREATOR OF ALL LIFE – Law issues forth boundaries to what He deems “right” and “wrong” in actions and attitudes. And, unlike the fact that I discovered that our new kitchen light didn’t come with an instruction manual – we humans did! It’s called the HOLY BIBLE! In the pages of His living word, He gives commands and direction to His Way of wholesome, healthy, righteous social and spiritual needs and goals.

Gutter Societies

Our societies are truly in the depths of what can be labeled a “gutter society.” And what we are witnessing in our nations in ‘this generation’ is truly just the tip of our gutter societies within our cities.

Sexual perversions were so universal in Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain, that the males, young and old tried forcing their perverted sexual relations on others. Sound familiar!?

“Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5) And they called to Lot and said to him, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally’” – Genesis 19:4-5.

It wasn’t just the “bad” section of town that carnally wanted Lot’s guests. Notice, “people from every quarter.” And certainly, within our societies, we are being conditioned, and in many cases forced, to accept these abominable lifestyles! There are a growing number of people being prosecuted for what they are calling “homophobic or transphobic hate crime” 4 So often, a person can now be jailed for not using a proper pronoun to address a transgender person!

“And they said, ‘Stand back!’ …and came near to break down the door” – vs. 9.

Even today, a great many try and deny that any sexual assault was involved in this incident! These false ministers continue to proclaim that “God was just angry over the Sodomites’ inhospitality to strangers.” The context, however, is undeniable what their intentions were – a sexual assault. In America every sixty-eight seconds, an American is sexually assaulted! This is a staggering rate! 5 Like what America HAS BECOME – the Sodomites were not ashamed of their social or sexual values and actions. With their smug and self-assured PRIDE, the inhabitants came to accept what to them was an “enlightened” and “free morality.” Again, they screamed in their streets, ““No one has the right to tell me what to do or be!” They became enraged against Lot when he told them of their wickedness – cf. Genesis 19:9.

The “closet door” is off its hinges!

Was it just homosexual practices alone that contributed to the utter destruction of Sodom, Gomorrah, and the cities of the plain!?

The truth is all types of sexual perversions were “out of the closet”! It was notoriously common to PARADE about in public streets PROUDLY announcing your sexual preference and lifestyle! And we certainly are witness to this in the U.S. and the U.K. – cf. Over $200K being spent on drag queen shows at NYC schools, records show!

And like Lot, all true Christians should be gravely concerned about what is happening in the modern-day nations of Israel! There is no respect or any right standard, or naturality!

One of our Lord Jesus Christ’s brothers, Jude, clearly reveals that the Sodomites were “giving themselves over to SEXUAL IMMORALITY and gone after strange flesh” – Jude 1:7. It truly means to be utterly sexually unchaste – which included all types of sexual immoralities and unlawful lusts.

The Living Bible translates this verse, “And don’t forget the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and their neighboring towns, all full of lust OF EVERY KIND including lust of men for other men. Those cities were destroyed by fire and continue to be a warning to us …” – Jude 1:7, TLB.

Those cities were awash with lesbians, incest, Beastiality, pedophiles, swapping, bisexuality, homosexuality, sadomasochism, and every other deplorable and debased perverted sexual immorality that mankind has conjured up!

This means that Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain had sunk to their final coup of their “sexual revolution.” Many are asking, has America sunk to her deepest depths of sexual perversions!? Could pedophilia soon be legal? Pedophiles are now beginning to seek equal rights by claiming that their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different from heterosexuals or homosexuals.

The LORD our God’s Law concerning sex and marriage is largely being ignored or blatantly rejected! And as I stated earlier, there is growing in our nation a greater number of individuals not having any respect or knowledge of the true LORD God – or the Law of God! We have grown PROUD and HAUGHTY!

There is coming a TRAGIC OUTCOME!

Then, as now, individuals or whole groups of people, approach others with all kinds of lustful notions. Having been an over-the-road truck driver for twenty years I can affirm this! I was accosted on multiple occasions throughout those twenty years.

Sadly, this world’s abominable agenda wants to eliminate Almighty God and Jesus Christ from every aspect of our societies. They don’t want to have any Bible studies – or even the mention of a Holy Bible. Well, guess what, the LORD God has taken Their blessings off of the house of Israel and the house of Judah! Our nations – as a whole – has invited the LORD God to leave! You know, there was a CBS News report back in 2018, which reported a mom of a Californication shooting victim reportedly saying to the cameras, “I don’t want prayers… I want gun control!” Sadly, I believe this to be the sentiment of the population! – TODAY! This world as a whole is in essence saying, ‘We don’t want God!’

And now, in ‘this generation,’ with this growing “woke” culture and its sister “cancel,” our children are increasingly becoming ensnared with these abominable lifestyles and attitudes of selfishness. And it is growing – as it grew in Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain. To the very point where they could not perceive the grave damages that their perverted ideas and actions were doing to the wholesome natural development of their children, much less themselves and others.

The result of the Sodomites’ way of life plunged the people into increasingly distorted debased human character. In fact, throughout the United States, I have personally witnessed mankind’s utterly debased character! And I see our progeny becoming even worse.

As I once spoke about – the fact that if God doesn’t punish our nations for our grave sins – then He must apologize for the utter destruction of the cities of the plains. God isn’t righteous for one generation and not for the next; God is not judgmental for one generation and not the next – the apostle Paul in Hebrews states, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” And, God is fair to every single human being – cf. Rom. 2:11.

Not Lost, Just Wandering

Our Lord Jesus Christ, in His example, says, “…’ Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? 3) I tell you, no; BUT UNLESS YOU REPENT YOU WILL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH’ – Luke 13:2, 3. And the same can be said of those Sodomites! In fact, our Lord Jesus comments on this very thing; concerning those who outright willingly reject the living word of our Eternal God vs those who are ignorant of His living word, ’ But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you’ – Matthew 11:24. More tolerable for the land of Sodom because there is coming help from the LORD God for the Sodomites! They are not lost! And there is hope for anyone who is caught in similar sins today!

Yet, it is a matter of properly understanding God’s Master Plan… From the Beginning! for all mankind!

Truly, the ancient land of Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain – just like the vast majority of mankind who have ever lived, were allowed by Almighty God to be blinded to our CREATOR GOD’S Law and awesome potential for human existence.

“’ Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. 2) But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear’” – Isaiah 59:1-2.

The LORD God – the great and awesome family of God – has allowed all mankind to reap the consequences of their own way under the influence of Satan the Devil’s way of lust, greed, and self-aggrandizement.

The destroyed cities of the plain will have more mercy from the LORD God because they sinned in ignorance. Whereas many in the time of our Lord Jesus – and a growing number in ‘this generation’who profess to know Him, do not obey Him!


Certainly, as the ancient cities of the plain didn’t start out as immorally as they ended – the great United States of America did not begin in utter sexual immorality! Jeffrey Ludwig writes in the American Thinker
“The decline in sexual morality we see in our era did not begin in the year 2000. Today's "sexual revolution" is expressed by our being told by the highest court in the land that homosexual marriage can and must be married and by women being encouraged to abort children as a "right." In today's society, drag queens reading to little children in libraries is considered delightful by many. Further, vast numbers of people consider one's sex designation psychological and not biological, and, increasingly, parents encourage their little children to "choose" which sex/gender they want to be. …

These trends are the result of a series of developments that have been ongoing for more than 100 years. Sexual fantasies and desires were depicted by Sigmund Freud as repressed, and in their repressed unconscious influence on the personality, these desires and fantasies were leading to neurotic and psychotic behaviors in society. …

Situation ethics came into being during the 1960s regarding Christian sexual morality with the writings of Joseph F. Fletcher, an Anglican theologian. Non-marital sexual intercourse could be accepted if the parties believed in Jesus Christ and really loved each other, even if not married. This view is generally held by liberal churches today, even if it does not appear on their websites under "Our Beliefs." …

This breakdown in the moral order regarding human sexuality is not just a difference in values between some sectors of the population and others. Rather, it is a difference in values between fallen mankind and the Author of the moral law Himself. If it exists in what formerly was called Christian America, then judgment is likely to follow.” 6
The fate of Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain should be a warning to all! The events which shattered those cities more than 38,095 years ago – some believing that ancient Sodom is the excavated Bab edh-Dhra – the LORD our God warns us – “as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities around them in a similar manner to these having given themselves over to sexual immorality and gone after strange flesh, are set forth AS AN EXAMPLE, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” – Jude 1:7.

Our beloved apostle Peter writes – under God’s inspiration –

“and turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, condemned them to destruction, MAKING THEM AN EXAMPLE to those who afterward would live ungodly” – 2 Peter 2:6.

Friends, it is a crystal clear example!

Let us as a nation, and even more so as an individual “ …’ Repent, and believe in [obey] the gospel’ – Mark 1:15. □

  1. Brother, wouldn't that be wonderful if America could be like Nineveh, when the whole city fasted, repented, and prayed to God to save them from annihilation. We could live in peace and not have to worry about the coming tribulations. Of course we know what happened after God decided not to destroy Nineveh. Their repentance was short lived.

    1. Yes! How gloriously wonderful the "World Tomorrow" will be! "'Your kingdom come. Your will be done ..."!
