SIN BROUGHT UTTER DESTRUCTION
 
The Plain of Jordan had five cities. We often speak of Sodom and Gomorrah, but there were also Zoar, Adman, and Zeboiim. The kings of these five cities were confederates who lost a war against Chedolaomer and three other Babylonian kings. Abram took a small army to rescue Lot, defeating these four Babylonian kings.
 
A point to consider is that the five cities of the plain had culture and religion in common. All five were totally corrupt and destined for destruction. Lot initially pleaded to flee to Zoar, a smaller one of the five cities. He was allowed, and fire and brimstone destroyed Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim. Zoar was spared due to Lot’s presence as God’s favor to Abraham.
 
However, Lot determined that he was not safe in Zoar, so he fled again. He went to the mountain where he had been told to go. There he found a cave in which to dwell. When he left Zoar, that city was also destroyed. That plain, now full of salt (brimstone) became part of what is known as the dead Sea, or Salt Sea.
 
At 1,290 feet below sea level, it has the earth’s lowest surface. It measures 47 x 10 miles. The depth of water ranges from ten feet to 1,300 feet. Each shore has cliffs ranging from 1,500 to 2,500 feet high. It is fed water on its north side from the Jordan River. The salt concentration of 25% is four times that of ocean water. The slime pits (bitumen) mentioned in Genesis 14:10 (during the battle) are to this day active in the floor of the lake. The presence of magnesium bromide in the lake made it impossible for centuries for any life, plant, or animal, to grow in it. 
 
God utterly destroyed the entire plain, leveling it and making it inhabitable. The sin of homosexuality and the brutal and vicious behaviors associated with it brought down God’s wrath upon the entire area. How do you think he feels about today’s acceptance of it, - and not just by the “world” but by the “church” also?
 
Many Protestant denominations not only accept it they even ordain sodomites as pastors and ministers. Even Pope Francis has recently endorsed homosexual marriage (although he is now trying to backtrack on that).
 
Folks, God hates sin. There are many kinds of sin. Some of them we tend to regard as worse than other kinds, but God cannot stand any of them. He loves the sinner, but He hates the sin. He could not even “look upon” Jesus on the cross because Jesus had all of our sin (past, present, future) put upon him. That feeling of abandonment is why Jesus cried out, “My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken me?” (Matt 27:46 and Mark 15:34)
 
As born-again believers, you and I have Jesus’ blood as our cleansing. I John 1:9 says to us that as we confess our daily sins, we are cleansed. Let us “keep clean.”

THIS TOO SHALL PASS
 
If we were told a year ago of all the drama, problems, rioting, plagues, and hatred that would happen in 2020 many would consider digging a hole in the ground and burying themselves in it. Fortunately, God reveals to us what we need to know as we need to know it. He doesn’t put overload on us. He gives us one breath at a time. 
 
There are hundreds of times in scripture that a verse starts out with “It came to pass.” The word pass literally means to be finished, to come to an end. There is always a time for things to begin and things to end. It is what we do in the middle that makes the difference. 
 
Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” This was written to Israel while they were in exile. They had sinned greatly and even though they were warned, they did not change their ways. They were taken captive by their enemies. Yet, God had a plan. Their time in captivity would pass
 
God wants us to know that when we fail, or when we succeed, that when we surrender our life to him, He daily gives us a fresh start. No matter how old we are, there is something new, and the old will pass away.
 
 We cannot and should not attempt to live it over. It came to pass and is gone.
 
In II Corinthians 5:17 it says, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” Many choose to stay stuck in what things used to be. They live in the past of their failures and successes when God wants us to let it all go and daily have new beginnings. As the old song goes, Yesterday’s gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine, so for my sake, teach me to take one day at a time
 
 We must choose to let things pass. Let them come to an end and let God’s new plan for us spring forth! Remember yesterday came to pass. It is gone. Let it stay gone.
