Cities Roles Given To Debauchery
Cities roles given That evening the two angels arrived in Sodom, while Lot was sitting near the city gate. When Lot saw them, he got up, bowed down low, and said, “Gentlemen, I am your servant. Please come to my home. You can wash your feet, spend the night, and be on your way in the morning. ”They told him, “No, we’ll spend the night in the city square.” But Lot kept insisting, until they
finally agreed and went home with him. He baked some bread, cooked a meal, and they ate.
Before Lot and his guests could go to bed
, every man in Sodom, young and old, came and stood outside his house and started shouting, “Where are your visitors? Send them out, so we can have sex with them! ”Lot went outside and shut the door behind him. Cities roles given Then he said, “Friends, please don’t do such a terrible thing! I have two daughters who have never been
married. I’ll bring them out, and you can do what you want with them. But don’t harm these men. They are guests in my home.”
“Don’t get in our way,” the crowd answered. “You’re an outsider. What right do you have to order us around? We’ll do worse things to you than we’re going to do to them. ”The crowd kept arguing with Lot.
Finally, they rushed toward the door to break it down.
But the two angels in the house reached out and pulled Lot safely inside. Then they struck everyone in the crowd
blind, and none of them could even find the door. The two angels said to Lot, “The Lord has heard many terrible things about the people of Sodom, and he has sent us here to destroy the city.
Take your family and leave.
Cities roles given Take every relative you have in the city, as well as the men your daughters are going to marry.” Lot went to the men who
were engaged to his daughters and said, “Hurry and get out of here! The Lord is going to destroy this city.” But they thought he was joking, and they laughed at him. Early the next morning the two angels tried to make
Lot hurry and leave. They said, “Take your wife and your two daughters and get out of here as fast as you can! If you don’t, every one of you will be killed when the Lord destroys the city.” At first,
Lot just stood there. But the Lord wanted to save him. So the angels took Lot, his wife, and his two daughters by the hand and led them out of the city. When they were outside, one of the angels said, “Run for your lives! Don’t even look back. And don’t stop in the valley. Cities roles given Run to the hills
, where you will be safe.” Lot answered, “You have done us a great favor,
sir. You have saved our lives, but please don’t make us go to the hills.
That’s too far away. The city will be destroyed before we can get there, and we will be killed when it happens. There’s a town near here. It’s only a small place, but my family and I will be safe, if you let us go there.” “All right, go there,” he answered. “I won’t destroy that town. Hurry! Run! I can’t do anything until you are safely there. ”The town was later called Zoar
because Lot had said it was small. Genesis 19:1-22 Cities roles given.
Sexual relations with animals If any of you have sex with an animal, both you and the animal will be put to death, just as you deserve. Leviticus 20:15-16 Devoted to destruction In fact, any humans who have been promised to me in this way must be put to death. Leviticus 27:29
Defiance against God
Why do the nations plot, and why do their people make useless plans? The kings
of this earth have all joined together to turn against the Lord and his chosen one. They say, “Let’s cut the ropes and set ourselves free!” Psalm 2:1-3
Cities roles given Corrupt from birth You have done wrong and lied from the day you were born. Psalm 58:3 Self-imposed debauchery By doing such gruesome things, they also became filthy. Psalm 106:39 Silver to dross, wine to water Your silver is fake, and your wine is watered down. Isaiah 1:22 Cities roles given Sin parade The Lord says: The women of Jerusalem are proud and strut around,
winking shamelessly. They wear anklets that jingle and call attention to the way they walk. Isaiah 3:16
Ravages of wickedness
Evil had spread like a raging forest fire sending thorn bushes up in smoke. Isaiah 9:18 Sick drunk Priests and prophets stumble because they are drunk. Their minds are too confused to receive God’s messages or give honest decisions. Isaiah 28:7 Cities roles given Corrupted vine You were a choice grapevine, but now you produce nothing but small, rotten grapes. Jeremiah
2:21 Running after foreign gods Your shoes are worn out, and your throat is parched from running here and there to worship foreign gods. “Stop!” I shouted, but you replied, “No! I love those gods too much.” Jeremiah 2:25
From one sin to another The Lord replied: Lies come from the mouths of my people, like arrows from a bow. Cities roles given With each dishonest deed their power increases and not one of them will admit that I am God. Jeremiah 9:3
The Lord said: Ezekiel, son of man, listen to this story about two sisters. While they were young and living in Egypt, they became prostitutes. The older one was named Oholah, which stands for Samaria; the younger one was Oholibah, which stands for Jerusalem. They became my wives and gave birth to my children. Even though Oholah was my wife, she continued to be a
prostitute and chased after Assyrian lovers. She offered herself to soldiers in purple uniforms, to every handsome, high-ranking officer, and to cavalry troops. Cities roles given She had sex with all the important Assyrian officials and even worshiped their disgusting idols. Once she started doing these things in Egypt, she never stopped.
Men slept with her, and she was always ready for sex. So I gave Oholah to the Assyrian lovers she wanted so badly. They ripped off her clothes, then captured her children and killed her. Women everywhere talked about what had happened to Oholah. Oholibah saw all this, but she was more sinful and wanted sex more than her sister Oholah ever did. Oholibah also chased after good-looking
Assyrian officers, uniformed soldiers, and cavalry troops.
Just like her sister, she did vulgar things.
But Oholibah behaved worse than her sister. Oholibah saw images of Babylonian men carved into walls and painted red. Cities roles given They had belts around their waists and large turbans on their heads, and they reminded her of Babylonian cavalry officers.
As soon as she looked at them, she wanted to have sex with them. And so, she sent messengers to bring them to her. Men from Babylonia came and had sex with her so many times that she got disgusted with them. She let everyone see her naked body and didn’t care if they knew she was a prostitute. That’s why I turned my back on her, just as I had done with her older sister. Oholibah didn’t
stop there, but became even more immoral and acted as she had back in Egypt.
She eagerly wanted to go to bed with Egyptian men, who were famous for their sexual powers. And she longed for the days when she was a young prostitute, when men enjoyed having sex with her. Cities roles given The Lord Will Punish Oholibah The Lord God said:Oholibah, though you no longer want to be around your lovers, they will surround you like enemies, when I turn them against you.
I will gather all the
young officials and the high-ranking cavalry officers from Babylonia and Assyria, as well as from the Chaldean tribes of Pekod, Shoa, and Koa.
Their large armies will come from the north with chariots and wagons carrying weapons. They will wear shields and helmets and will surround you, and I will let them judge and sentence you according to their own laws. I am angry with you, so I will let them be very cruel. They will cut off your nose and ears; they will kill your children and put to death anyone in your family who is still
alive. Your clothes and jewelry will be torn off. Cities roles given I will stop your wickedness and the prostitution you started back in Egypt. You will never want to think about those days again.
I, the Lord God, am ready to hand you over to those hateful enemies that you find so disgusting. They will cruelly take away everything you have worked for and strip you naked. Then everyone will see you for the prostitute you really are. Your own vulgar sins have led to this. You were the one determined to have sex with men from other nations and to worship their idols. Cities roles
given You have turned
out no better than your older sister, and now you must drink from the cup filled with my anger. I, the Lord God, gave your sister a large, deep cup filled with my anger.
And when you drink from that cup, you will be mocked and insulted. You will end up drunk and devastated, because that cup is filled with horror and ruin. But you must drink every drop! Then smash the cup to pieces and use them to cut your breasts in sorrow.
I, the Lord God, have spoken.
You have completely rejected me, and so I promise that you will be punished for the disgusting things
you did as a prostitute. The Lord said: Ezekiel, son of man, it’s time for you to tell Oholah and Oholibah that they are guilty. Remind them of their evil ways! They have been unfaithful by worshiping idols, Cities roles given and they have committed murder by sacrificing my own children as offerings to idols.
They came into my temple that same day, and that made it unfit as a place to worship me. They have even stopped respecting the Sabbath. They sent messengers to attract men from far away. When those men arrived, the two sisters took baths and put on eye shadow and jewelry. They sat on a fancy couch, and in front of them was a table for the olive oil and incense that had belonged to
me. Their room was always filled with a noisy crowd of drunkards brought in from the desert.
These men gave the women bracelets and beautiful crowns,
and I noticed that the men were eager to have sex with these women, though they were exhausted from being prostitutes. In fact, the men had sex over and over with Oholah and Oholibah, the two sinful sisters. But good men will someday accuse those two of murder and of being unfaithful, Cities roles given will call together an angry mob that will abuse and
rob you. They will stone you to death and cut you to pieces; they will kill your children and burn down your houses
. I will get rid of sinful
prostitution in this country, so that women everywhere will be warned not to act as you have. You will be punished for becoming prostitutes and for worshiping idols, and you will know that I am the Lord God. Ezekiel 23:1-49
In-depth debauchery Cursing, dishonesty, murder, robbery, unfaithfulness these happen all the time. Violence is everywhere. Hosea 4:2 Israel, you have built many altars where you offer sacrifices for sin .But these altars have become places for sin. Hosea 8:11 Cities roles given Sow the wind If you scatter wind instead of wheat, you will harvest a whirlwind and have no wheat.
Even if you harvest grain, enemies will steal it all. Hosea 8:7 Hate good, love evil but you prefer to do evil instead of what is right. You skin my people alive. You strip off their flesh, Micah 3:2
When the Son of Man appears, things will be just as they were when Noah lived. People were eating, drinking, and getting married right up to
the day that the flood came and Noah went into the big boat. Matthew 24:37-38
Continual lust and they are so greedy that they do all kinds of indecent things. Ephesians 4:19 Drunken debauchery Don’t destroy yourself by getting drunk, but let the Spirit fill your life. Ephesians 5:18 Inhuman, implacable heartless, and hateful. Their words will be cruel, and they will have no self-control or pity. These people will hate everything that is good. 2
Timothy 3:3 Cities roles given.
Sin in broad daylight They have done evil, and they will be rewarded with evil. They think it is fun to have wild parties during the day. They are immoral, and the meals they eat with you are spoiled by the shameful and selfish way they carry on. All they think about is having sex with someone else’s husband or wife.
There is no end to their wicked deeds.
They trick people who are easily fooled, and their minds are filled with greedy thoughts. But they are headed for trouble! They have left the true road and have gone down the wrong path by following the example of the prophet Balaam. He was the son of Beor and loved what he got from being a crook. Cities roles given.
But a donkey corrected him for this evil deed. It spoke to him with a human voice and made him stop his foolishness. These people are like dried up water holes and clouds blown by a windstorm. The darkest part of hell is waiting for them. They brag out loud about their stupid nonsense.
And by being vulgar and crude, they trap people who have barely escaped from living the wrong kind of life.
They promise freedom to everyone.
But they are merely slaves of filthy living, because people are slaves of whatever controls them. When they learned about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they escaped from the filthy things of this world. But they are again caught up and
controlled by these filthy things, and now they are in worse shape than they were at first. Cities roles given They would have been better off if they had never known about the right way.
Even after they knew what was right, they turned their backs on the holy commandments that they were given. What happened to them is just like the true saying, “A dog will come back to lick up its own vomit. A pig that has been washed will roll in the mud.” 2 Peter 2:13-22
Cities roles given We should also be warned by what happened to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and
the nearby towns. Their people became immoral and did all sorts of sexual sins. Then God made an example of them and punished them with eternal fire. Jude 7 No one stopped murdering or practicing witchcraft or being immoral or stealing. Revelation 9:21
