Lesson from Lot

 As I was so shall you be - reviled and rejected of men. Jesus, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. In the world only but in Heaven and heavenly places great joy and rejoicing. A Party! Because one sinner has repented and another soul is saved. My people are coming together, the sheep are being found and brought back to the fold. The sons of perdition will be revealed. Amen.

Me    What do you mean Lord, the sons of perdition?

Answer   The unrighteous, lawlessness and iniquity. Such old fashioned words - not the sentiments of a modern world. But look where the choices have taken them. I Have given them over to a reprobate and ungodly way of life. And those, who are like Lot, are vexed and unhappy within themselves about it.

As I did for Lot I have sent, not just angels this time, but My precious Son, to call them out of the world of sin and strife. And if they hear My voice and follow Me I lead them out of the world. But the warning is there; Do not look back (with regret) as Lot's wife did. She was willing to go with Lot but at the crunch point she, in her heart, mourned the loss of her life in the city. She did not look forward, she looked back and died. So to, having left and been lead out of the world, my people will perish if they regret the decision and slip back into the world's way - they will die.

And even Lot became corrupted as he lived with his daughter's in the wilderness. He could have determined to follow and join Abraham again or found another dwelling place of men not corrupted. But he chose to remain isolated away. This meant his daughter's were not going to marry and procreate. (It was Lot's responsibility as a father to his daughters to found them husbands)

So they took matters into their own hands and committed incest with their father - which was sin before Me. Their children became the practitioner's of incestuous relationships, bringing upon themselves the judgment of God. They needed to be removed from the earth by Israel, Abraham's descendants as blot on the land. ( Blood of the childbirth stained the land - from the birth of the sons)

Even when the Lord rescues you from the world of sin and you don't look back and die as Lot's wife did, there are still many choices to be made and each one has consequences. Lot could have chosen to rejoin Abraham, which had he done would have changed history. His daughter's would not have committed incest. Lot would likely have found another wife and husbands for his daughters. And that would have been the end of the story.

But because of his pride and hardness of heart he would not rejoin Abraham to heal the breach between them, so he exposed his family to sin and iniquity and he "lived a death"

So too it is if we live our lives without softness and reverence towards God. If we harden our hearts to Him and refuse to listen to Him and follow His guidance and loving kindness. His desire is to give us good gifts, but if we stubbornly refuse to listen and do as He would lead us (He will never force us against our will) we will totally reap the consequences. As we have sown, so shall we reap. Never doubt it!

But God is faithful and true and if we turn to Him again and follow Him His ways and His goodness, we will totally benefit and save ourselves from living death again.

 

Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Genesis 19 Lot's Story   19:16 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.

2 This 2:3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,
