As a preacher for my Lord, I must preach against sin. The wrath of God is upon all sin, including the sin of sodomy.
The Bible says more about the sin of sodomy than most people know. Do you want to read the passages? Here are some Scriptures I personally have read:
Genesis 19:1-11 “And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;
2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. 4
Leviticus 18:22-30But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5
Leviticus 20:13-16And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. 10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. 11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
I Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
I Kings 15:11 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father.
I Kings 22:46 And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I have also read one more passage that I will mention in just a moment. It is a passage that contains a grave warning, but it also contains HOPE. Hallelujah for HOPE!
I read once that it was “morally wrong to paint a picture of a forest without a way out.” You should know this, there is a way out of sin!
I do not want to preach against sin without declaring the good news! There is GOOD NEWS! JESUS SAVES! Yes, my friends, JESUS SAVES. All of us need the Lord. We need God’s forgiveness. We need the mercies of Jesus to open toward us like a flowing river to cleanse us from our wicked, vile sin!
Read carefully this passage: 1COR 6:9-10 “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
It says: “nor effeminate.” I prayed and studied that phrase. It is AWFUL.
Sodomy is not a special sin. It is a wicked sin condemned in the Bible by God, just like the wicked sins of stealing, drunkenness, adultery, pride, selfishness, and a multitude of other sins.
The message in I Corinthians chapter 6 continues with HOPE, in verse 11: “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” Hallelujah!!! A sodomite can get saved just like any other sinner! Glory to our kind, loving, precious Almighty God!
Do not continue to live the life of sin. Please turn to Jesus. Repent. Believe.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
“Dear Lord, may the Holy Spirit speak to hearts. May people accept the Lord Jesus as Savior. May whole families turn to Thee. Please send a revival to America. Please save souls throughout the world. In Jesus’ name, amen.”
