th”The Lord [whispered to] Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee”……. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother’s son, and all their substance and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan.……. And there was a strife between the herdmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdmen of Lot’s cattle……..

Abram told Lot: Is not the whole land before thee?….If thou wilt take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if thou depart to the right hand, then I will go to the left. And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere,….even as the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt. Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan….

And, they separated themselves the one from the other. Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom.” Gen. 12:1-5 (KJV), Gen. 13:1-12 (KJV) My friends, as a Child of God are we capable of recognizing that our tent faces Sodom? And our salvation and entry into God’s kingdom is in a state of “clear and present danger.”

When morning dawned The angel Cried to Lot “Get up! Take your wife, two daughters and go, or you will be thswept away in the punishment of the city.” But Lot hesitated and lingered. So the Angels took hold of his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, because the Lord was merciful to him [for Abraham’s sake]; and they brought him out,” Gen. 19:15-16 (AMP)

Oh the mercies of God who still hears the prayers of our parents and those who are praying for us not to linger but too “Escape for our life! And not to look back at Sodom,” But follow Christ lead and move forward, for by beholding, we become changed. My friends, The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise [to save all who have a passion to be saved]….But, is patient, not wanting anyone to perish [in Sodom]….2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)

God told Abraham to leave His country, and the influence of family and community. Lot followed, But Lot could not leave those hereditary tendencies behind, so he pitched his tent toward Sodom. Therefore, the wickedness of Sodom defined his life and destination.

My friends, if God woke us up today, no matter where we live, our tent faces Sodom. Whether in the “prodigious thhilltops of New Hampshire. Or [towards] the mighty mountains of New York.” Or towards The Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Or towards The Great Pyramids of Giza.

“Or [toward] the curvaceous slopes of California,” Sodom defines who we are, in-less we have allowed self to die and our life is totally committed to following Christ, His word and Spirit where-ever He may lead as we cry out Lord, not my will, but thy will be done. So today we must choose, whom we will serve?

Either those hereditary tendencies we have accumulated throughout our life inside Sodom that Satan controls? Or from the one who died for our sins so that we may live our life one day soon without sin or Satan, and live it more abundantly throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity?
