Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

LOTS WIFE

Why did Lots wife look back and turn in to a pillar of salt

Luke 9:62

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

1 John V15-18

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world - the cravings of sinful men - the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has or does – comes not from the father but from the world. The world and it's desires pass away. But the man who dose the will of God lives for ever.

”Lot’s family were quite wealthy and his daughters were both engaged to be married. Genesis 19 V14 “So Lot went out and spoke to his sons in law who were pledged to marry his daughters.”(Before the destruction) “He said hurry and get out of this place because the Lord is about to destroy the city, but his sons in law thought he was joking.”


It is probable that Lot’s wife was already missing the wealth and people she had left behind. God is telling us we must not put anything before Him.

1 John V15-18

“Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world - the cravings of sinful men - the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has or does – comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away. But the man who does the will of God lives forever.”

So the angels were leading Lot and his family out of death and into life. God is saying that if we look back at our life and possessions, we cannot go forward and we will die.

Also remember the sons in law. Was she thinking of them? Look at this verse from Jesus himself.

Matthew 10 V 37-39

“Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me. Anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me and anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”

Jesus tells us that we must love him more than our own families, and that God must always come first in our lives. Remember the disciples, who left their families to do God’s will. Probably the hardest thing they had to do. Could we do the same? Is this why we are reminded of Lot’s wife? The day may soon dawn when we will have to heed God’s warning with no looking back.

Luke 17 V31

“On that day no one who is on the roof of his house with his goods inside should go down to get them. Likewise no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife.”

God is teaching us not to love the material things of this world or its affairs. Did Lot’s wife love the ways of this world more than God? He is telling us that we must be ready to walk away from everything we have if Jesus should return in our lifetime, and if not in our lifetime, that we must be ready spiritually. Lot and his daughters obeyed God and escaped destruction for a new life. We must be ready to do the same!

The bible says trust in God with all your heart.

Proverbs 3 V5

We must always be aware of the consequences of sin. The destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was God’s warning to us all. 2 Peter 2 V6 describes God’s judgement on sin. Mathew 10 V28 “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”

It will help us to be righteous and obedient to his word.

2 Timothy V3

“But mark this. There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.”

The bible describes the last days. Is it not discribing today?

JOSEPHUS GOES ON TO DESCRIBE LOT'S WIFE

But Lot’s wife continually turning back to view the city as she went from it, and being nicely inquisitive what would become of it, although God had forbidden her to do so, was changed into a pillar of salt, for I have seen it and it remains at this day. Now he and his daughters fled. So Josephus not only knew the story of Lot’s wife turning to salt, but says that he has actually seen her.

As his account is 2,000 years old I have to wonder if she is still there today. Remember when I saw the lone tall rock up the mountainside? I fancied that I saw a face, hand and wrist, and she appeared to be in the right place, facing Sodom, on a mountainside and with Zoar behind. (See picture). Further searching revealed more ancient writings: This pillar of salt we see here standing in the time of Josephus, and he had seen it. That it was standing then is also attested by Clement of Rome, contempory with Josephus.

As also that it was so in the next century is attested by Irenaeus, with the addition of the hypothesis how it came to last so long with all its members entire? Whether the account that some modern travellers give be true, that it is still standing, I do not know. Its remote situation at the most southern point of the Sea of Sodom, in the wild and dangerous deserts of Arabia make it exceeding difficult for inquisitive travellers to examine the place.

Many people and many stories. Let’s review the information we have so far.

Genesis 19 V26

“Lot’s wife looked back and she became a pillar of salt.”
Josephus writes he had seen it himself.
Also attested by Clement of Rome.
Backed up by Irenaeus in the next century.
The hypothesis, how it came to last so long?

Many people claiming to have seen her.
Did I see her, and if not, is she still there to be found?


Josephus describes “a remote situation at the southernmost point of the Sodom Sea, in the wild and dangerous deserts of Arabia.” If the rock I found is not she, then we must search the deserts and mountains again between Sodom and Zoar. I intend to do just that!

Josephus stated that Lot’s wife “repeatedly turned back and looked at Sodom,” which shows her disobedience.

This is a lesson to us all that we must obey and trust in the Lord. This article is taken from the BOOK:
Our Search for Sodom & Gomorrah

Retired businessman Simon Brown went searching for the biblical cities of Sodom & Gomorrah.
timeDear friends do you know the Lord Jesus yet? Time is running out FAST in this evil world. God is always listening, and he will be there for you when you choose to speak to him. God's there, listening for all who pray, for all who pray and mean it. Psalm 145:18, The Message (MSG)
All I ask is that you don’t wait UNTIL IT IS TOO LATE. Watch this Video and Surrender Your Heart To God because He LovesYOU AND WILL SAVE YOUR SOUL. 

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.Psalm 53:1  Thank you for reading this article. May the Lord God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob bless you in Jesus name I pray.

Simon and Emma Brown.

THE SO CALLED ''MISSING LINKS'' TO EVOLUTION THAT FOOLED THE DUMB SCIENTIST












-----------------------------------------------------


IF THE BIBLE IS TRUE, THEN WE CAN SEE THE EVIDENCE.
IF THE BIBLE IS NOT TRUE, THAN WE WILL NOT FIND ANY EVIDENCE TO PROVE IT.
MOST PEOPLE KNOW EVIDENCE PROVES THINGS TO BE TRUE.
HAVE WE SEEN ANY EVIDENCE. THAT PROVES THE BIBLE?
YES WE CAN STILL SEE 1000'S OF YEARS LATER THE STAGGERING EVIDENCE TO PROVE EVERY STORY OF THE BIBLE.
The many bible discoveries and information on this web site proves the Holy Bible to be forensically accurate and perfectly reliable in every possible way and in every detail truthful concerning the most important events in human history.
The whole purpose of this website is to help bring people to the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Some need evidence, others do not. I hope that the evidence shown on this site helps you make a decision for the Lord.
When we “believe” that Jesus Christ truly died on the cross for our sins and if we believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and follow Him by taking up our cross, you shall be saved.
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
Luke 9:23 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.
Some need physical proof... well here it is. Some simply believe. The Bible says, “Blessed are those who have not seen, yet hath believed.” Whether you believe what I’ve shared in this website or not, and you have not yet received this free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ our Lord, now is the day. Let today be the day of your salvation!
If you are looking for the evidence of the bible, God or Jesus, here it is. It is time to turn away from our sins, believe and receive salvation, and follow Jesus. Amen.

Truth springs from the earth, And righteousness looks down from heaven. Psalm 85:11
Barnes' Notes on the Bible: Truth shall spring out of the earth - As plants do - for this is the meaning of the word. The blessings of truth and righteousness would be like the grass, the shrubs, the flowers, which spring up from the ground - and like the, rain and the sunbeams which come from heaven. Truth would spring up everywhere, and abound in all lands, as plants, and shrubs, and grass spring up all over the earth.
