commentary by the Fiery Evangelist:
Today’s big news is the refusal of the Justice System to prosecute Hillary Clinton even though they admit she broke the law at least 110 times. Outrage has been building all day as the mockery of our justice system was exposed for all the world to see this morning. What many people suspected has now been proven true and that is that if you are rich and powerful you can do anything you want but if you are one of the poor common folk you go to prison. Yet, we should not be surprised by this mockery at all because America IS the NEW SODOM and our nation is walking down the SAME road as did ancient Sodom and Gomorrah.
Many know the Biblical story of Sodom and Gomorrah. How the angels came to destroy the cities on God’s order due to their iniquity. We know how when the angels were in the home of Lot a crowd gathered outside the home demanding that Lot send the angels outside so that the crowd could “know them” and have sex with them. But, what many do not know is in the Book of Ezekiel we are given more details as to what the SINS OF SODOM were.
Ezekiel 16:49 says this, “Behold this was the iniquity of they sister Sodom; pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and the needy.” (KJV)
The New Century Version says this, “This was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were proud and had plenty of food and lived in great comfort, but she did not help the poor and needy.”
So the Sins of Sodom were: PRIDE (egotism), Gluttony; Over–comfort (decadence) and they would not help the poor and needy (selfishness). Sadly, those are the SAME SINS we see in America today! Our nation has become egotistical, greedy, selfish, and lazy. We used to help the less fortunate but today we spurn them and mock them! We blame them for their hardships! We used to help people. People used to ban together to help others. We used to know that egotism was sinful but today we worship it! We have become a people full of self-pride and selfishness. All we really care about is ourselves and our dust collectors and money. We are a people who have turned their backs on God and, in fact, we mock Him! We are a people who seek the guidance of fortune tellers and wish to only hear what pleases our ears. We are a people who hide from the truth about God AND ourselves! We are a people walking down the SAME ROAD as Sodom and Gomorrah on which ANYTHING goes no matter how sinful it is, no matter what the abomination is, no matter how GROSS it is! We all know the fate of Sodom and Gomorrah. Those ancient cities of iniquity were destroyed by God! I suspect America will suffer a similar fate, sadly.
Injustice is just the tip of the iceberg. If you know anything about icebergs then you know that the largest part of an iceberg is under the water where it can’t be seen. Under our injustice lies our pride and egotism! Under the water lies our selfishness and greed!
This is a sad day for America because our hypocrisy has been exposed for all to see. Yet, we should not be surprised at all because our nation and our people have been in a state of SIN for a long time now. We’ve turned away from God and towards money and egotism. We look for a savior but tell me do you really think money and egotism will save us? We seek not the thing of God any longer but only those things of enjoyment and pleasure. We love to gossip and back stab! We don’t want to hear the truth but only those things pleasing to our ears! We love only ourselves and our money! We PRETEND to know God but we do NOT have the POWER OF GOD in our lives which is the Holy Spirit!! We are a nation of SIN and HYPOCRISY! And what we are today is exactly what was described in the Book of 2nd Timothy 2:3 long ago!
And yet we wonder why our nation is heading for self-destruction? We wonder why the rich get away with anything and the poor get away with nothing? It may not be the Last Days for the whole of humankind but I’m pretty sure we are living in the Last Days of America! And when that destruction comes we have no one to blame but our own selves because of our iniquity not seen since the days of Sodom.
