Psalm 11: As David Flees for his life, he trusts God is with him

What is the distinction between God’s eyes “beholding” and His eyelids “trying”? His eyes “behold” from the standpoint of being open; that is, He is aware and cognizant of what is happening.

Genesis Chapter 19 Destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah

Jul 1st, 2009 | By | Category: Genesis, Verse by Verse --Studies led by Br. Frank Shallieu (Click on Book name)

When the men of Sodom surrounded the house, Lot realized immediately what their evil intentions were. He went out, closed the door behind him, and made an offer: The men of Sodom had better satisfy their desires on his two virgin daughters instead of on the two strangers. However, the men of Sodom were so angry with Lot for trying to stop them that they said they would now “deal worse” with him; that is, they would kill him.

This incident shows the condition of Sodom. Its sins were more than just pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness (Ezek. 16:49). Indeed homosexuality was the grievous sin. All the men of the city were involved except Lot (and perhaps his two prospective sons-in-law).

With Sodom being a symbol of Christendom, the implication is that conditions will get worse and worse as the end of the age draws closer. As for the antitype, it is significant that the sin was occurring in Sodom and that Lot was present there—as well as his wife and two daughters.
