Set Forth For An Example ~ Jude 7
I’ve started reading my Bible again from the beginning…from Genesis… but this time I am trying to keep track of the sons of Noah and where they were dispersed throughout the earth and what significance this has had in the past and still has, perhaps even now. I’ll be skipping around a bit, but seeing as we are living in a time of great distress, I will begin with these scriptures in Peter and Jude as they have the utmost relevance for our time. Peter and Jude warn us to take heed to the catastrophic events that came upon those who were living ungodly lives. These events were set forth as an example to future generations.
“And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly;” 2 Peter 2:6
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 7
This picture shows brimstone (sulphur) from the area by the Dead Sea where the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah flourished long ago.
“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.” Genesis 19:25-26
A great article and video about Sodom and Gomorrah is done by Ark Discovery. Please click on the link. It is so well worth watching.
And here is another witness that reveals the significance of this fire from the Lord…
I think it is wonderful that we can read about these warnings in scripture, but also that we can see with our own eyes as men have traveled to these areas and discovered the truth about these events. I’m thankful that they have shared their findings…It would be wonderful to hold this brimstone in our own hands. Imagine…it was sent from God himself thousands of years ago to wipe out a totally wicked and reprobate society.
Today we are faced with the same kind of wickedness in our society and God will not be mocked…
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7
I pray that people will wake up and heed to the warnings before it is too late.
