The month of June is highly propagandized as an embrace and brainwash program AGAINST the Will of God for human beings (including those who trust in the Risen Savior Jesus the Christ the Son of God) to accept as normal and valid all things perverted related to the LGBTQ Movement.
Those agreeing with the LGBTQ perversion might want to look up and pray a Sodom and Gomorrah reckoning does not enter your life. OR EVEN BETTER, become as wise as Lot and listen to Divine instruction and leave behind any way of living that displeases God Almighty and head for the hills if you have to.
Let God arise and His enemies be scattered! Let’s look at a summarized Bible glimpse of Lot being saved primarily by his uncle Abraham’s intercession in relation to Sodom and Gomorrah:
First Abraham’s Intercession Summarized from 50 down to 10 (Genesis 18: 16-26, 32-33 NKJV)
Abraham Intercedes for Sodom
16 Then the men rose from there and looked toward Sodom, and Abraham went with them to send them on the way. 17 And the Lord said, “Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, 18 since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? 19 For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” 20 And the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, 21 I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.”
22 Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. 23 And Abraham came near and said, “Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? 24 Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? 25 Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”
26 So the Lord said, “If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.”
32 Then he said, “Let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak but once more: Suppose ten should be found there?”
And He said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten.” 33 So the Lord went His way as soon as He had finished speaking with Abraham; and Abraham returned to his place.
AND NOW Sodom and Gomorrah’s perversion, Lot’s salvation followed by God’s Judgment summarized (Genesis 19: 1, 3-29 NKJV):
19 1Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.
3 But he insisted strongly; so they turned in to him and entered his house. Then he made them a feast, and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.
4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.”
6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”
9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to [a]stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.
Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed
12 Then the men said to Lot, “Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! 13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”
14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, “Get up, get out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city!” But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.
15 When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying, “Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.” 16 And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the Lord being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city. 17 So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that [b]he said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be [c]destroyed.”
18 Then Lot said to them, “Please, no, my lords! 19 Indeed now, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have increased your mercy which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, lest some evil overtake me and I die. 20 See now, this city is near enough to flee to, and it is a little one; please let me escape there (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.”
21 And he said to him, “See, I have favored you concerning this thing also, in that I will not overthrow this city for which you have spoken. 22 Hurry, escape there. For I cannot do anything until you arrive there.”
Therefore the name of the city was called [d]Zoar.
23 The sun had risen upon the earth when Lot entered Zoar. 24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He [e]overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.
26 But his wife looked back behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.
27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.

b. Genesis 19:17 LXX, Syr., Vg. they
c. Genesis 19:17 Lit. swept away
d. Genesis 19:22 Lit. Little or Insignificant
e. Genesis 19:25 devastated
I found it interesting most of Lot’s family wouldn’t believe him when he told them to leave because destruction was imminent! AND Lot’s own wife evidently longed for the lifestyle she was abandoning in Sodom, her yearning (looking back) turned her into a pillar of salt. And if there was a Paul Harvey moment here, as in THE REST OF THE STORY, which I did not include in the summarization. Lot’s two remaining daughters were so corrupted by Sodom and Gomorrah living combined with blond thinking (blond jokes are probably incorrect these days – oh well) – believing they three were all that was left in the world (even though they left little Zoar for a cave in the mountains – blond thinking), got their dad drunk to make babies.
So to be clear, Sodom and Gomorrah’s sin was way more than just homosexuality, it was the full gamut of sexual perversion. Hence the LGBTQ lifestyle thing fits the bill.
AND this is the lifestyle all forms of media TODAY and our Dem-Marxist governments (local, State and Federal) promote with massive brainwashing against God’s Word as acceptable.
AGAIN for clarity, the Word of God in the Old and New Testament (and trust me, there more Scriptures in existence than I am sharing here) on the LGBTQ abomination with a focus on same-sex:
Leviticus 18: 22 NKJV
22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
Leviticus 20: 13 NKJV
13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [a]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [b]manifest [c]in them, for God has shown it to them.
a. Romans 1:18 hold down
b. Romans 1:19 evident
c. Romans 1:19 among
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [a]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [b]men, leaving the natural use of the [c]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, [d]sexual immorality, wickedness, [e]covetousness, [f]maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 [g]undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, [h]unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

There was a time when the word “gay” simply meant happy. Like so many words used by the Left to brainwash the human mind, today “gay” has been warped and twisted to represent the godless LGBTQ lifestyle. There is nothing happy about being brainwashed into the Judgment of the unrepentant.
Before Sodom and Gomorrah, there was a corrupt humanity that had grown so corrupted and evil that God decided to end their existence EXCEPT one family still in Right Standing (Righteousness) with God Almighty – the family of Noah. The “days of Noah” are a bit controversial theory-wise among the theological-minded. So I’ll share the Scripture reference in Genesis 6 and follow it with the theological commentary I like the best and you can run with it or search your best scenario but most can agree that the “days of Noah” were considered evil in the sight of God Almighty:
Genesis 6: 1-14, 22 NKJV
The Wickedness and Judgment of Man
6 Now it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born to them, 2 that the sons of God saw the daughters of men, that they were beautiful; and they took wives for themselves of all whom they chose.
3 And the Lord said, “My Spirit shall not strive[a] with man forever, for he is indeed flesh; yet his days shall be one hundred and twenty years.” 4 There were [b]giants on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, men of renown.
5 Then [c]the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent[d] of the thoughts of his heart was only evil [e]continually. 6 And the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.” 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.
Noah Pleases God
9 This is the genealogy of Noah. Noah was a just man, [f]perfect in his generations. Noah walked with God. 10 And Noah begot three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth.
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. 12 So God looked upon the earth, and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
The Ark Prepared
13 And God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. 14 Make yourself an ark of gopherwood; make [g]rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch.
a. Genesis 6:3 LXX, Syr., Tg., Vg. abide
b. Genesis 6:4 Heb. nephilim, fallen or mighty ones
c. Genesis 6:5 So with MT, Tg.; Vg. God; LXX Lord God
d. Genesis 6:5 thought
e. Genesis 6:5 all the day
f. Genesis 6:9 blameless or having integrity
g. Genesis 6:14 Lit. compartments or nests
22 Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.
… In just six short chapters since the creation account we are already reading about the grotesquely altered procreation of man which had been corrupted by the ‘sons of God’ through lust, fornication, and what could be construed as rape and its subsequent defilement. These beings are widely known and accepted as fallen angels who had been cast to earth out of heaven. These fallen angels took on fleshly bodies according to their liking, as the serpent did in the garden of Eden. In taking on human flesh, their intention was to permanently alter the seed of man, being able to procreate through woman. They even took the women as wives. If one should question the validity of this story, let it be known that even today a similar evil is practiced with what is termed “shape-shifting” whereby a demon alters matter at the most base atomic structures. When Jesus Christ references “the depths of Satan” in Revelation 2:24, we can safely attribute such acts to His terms. Unto these ‘sons of God’ were born the Nephilim, who became giants in the earth. The Nephilim were upon the earth both pre and post flood. For example, Goliath was a Philistine Nephilim, an enemy of God and archenemy of Israel, who was miraculously slain by David — see 1 Samuel 17.
The days of Noah reveal the grossly manipulative conquest upon God’s creation by Satan (namely mankind), and God’s decisive judgments to both save and destroy. It reveals the just and righteous judgment of God and its finality. It also reveals His lavish mercy and desire to redeem, and how He exercises that desire so fantastically, albeit for the few. In the elaborate crafting of the ark, the salvation of Noah’s family with the animals, and even in the flood, we see His extravagance.
The days of Noah directly correlate with what is known as the Tribulation period, wherein Christ gives the days of Noah as an example in Matthew 24:21-39.
Point #1 — There Will Be Gross Sin and Unbelief
Again, this is the most prominent point of any. Sin had reached its pinnacle. Mankind was spiraling fast toward utter destruction, for which there was no recovery. That same pattern, we are told, will be repeated in the end times (last days), yet to an even greater degree, which finally gives rise to the Antichrist and the corresponding Tribulation period.
And so the Days of Noah were flushed away by a Flood but Noah and family and some animals (male and female) were saved by an Ark with a God-Promise not to punish humankind sealed by a rainbow. AGAIN, the Covenant-reminding rainbow promising no more global flooding has been twisted by the enemies of the Word of God to symbolize the LGBTQ godless lifestyle.
THANK GOD! There is a way out of a bad Judgment. It is called the forgiveness of sin through the paid Blood of the Risen Savior Jesus the Christ the Son of God. Here is the Roman Road to Redemption for any who may feel the pull of Holy Spirit Conviction and a contrite heart:
Romans 10: 5-13, 16-17 NKJV
5 For Moses writes about the righteousness which is of the law, “The man who does those things shall live by them.” 6 But the righteousness of faith speaks in this way, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend into heaven?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ down from above) 7 or, “ ‘Who will descend into the abyss?’ ” (that is, to bring Christ up from the dead). 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): 9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” [Bold Text Emphasis Blog Editor’s]
16 But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” 17 So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
If you are a Christian, there is zero spiritual profit in “Gay-Bashing” those following the LGBTQ lifestyle. So to be clear bashing people making godless choices IS NOT my purpose.
My purpose is to bash the brainwashing to accept godlessness as valid and normal. Resisting God Almighty the Creator is something that will always lead to personal loss – potentially in this life and definitely in the next life.
Revelation 20: 14-15; 21: 5-8 NKJV
20 14 Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second [a]death. 15 And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire.
21 5 Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said [a]to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
6 And He said to me, “It[b] is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. 7 He who overcomes [c]shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son. 8 But the cowardly, [d]unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
AGAIN to be clear, thanks to our first ancestors Adam and Eve (NOT Adam and Steve nor Adriana and Eve), ALL humanity lives in a Fallen nature worthy of Last Judgment. BUT God so Loved the world that …
John 3: 13-21 NKJV
13 No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man [a]who is in heaven. 14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness [Blog Editor: Brazen serpent context], even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 that whoever believes in Him should [b]not perish but have eternal life. 16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”
AND if you are a Believer in the Risen Savior and know you are Redeemed, I got news for you. Until Christ Returns, you ain’t perfect either and you will miss the mark in life occasionally. The Blood of Jesus blots out confessed missed marks.
1 John 1: 5-10 NKJV
5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.
DO NOT allow yourself to brainwashed by a lost and heading to Hell world. But neither a spout of dark-hate toward the Lost. Rather be a beacon of the Light of Jesus that an unsaved might discover Redemption in the Risen Son of God.
COME SOON JESUS and deliver us from this world system.
