“And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And he said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.” (Gen. 18:32)
They are called, whether by choice or not, I do not know, the “woke,” those who have come to the understanding within their minds, incorrectly I will add, that free will has little or no boundaries any longer. These are those who no longer want to be judged for their actions or lifestyles but have no problem judging those who stand in defiance of their supposed right to exercise their free will in almost any way they choose.
I bring this to light today because those of us who have been born-again will become, and in many ways are already, the target for their anger, for we stand upon what the Word of God declares these actions to be, sins against the Most High Himself.
I liken these days to that night that the two angels came to Sodom, and in this way. “And 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.” (Gen. 19:5) The crowd wanted to sin and they had no qualms about who knew it, their shame in this area of perversion had long ago vanished, much as in what is occurring today, why do you think they called it “coming out of the closet?” Because it was once considered a sin, something to be hidden from the public’s view. Today it is not only celebrated and encouraged, but being forced upon even the youngest in many nations.
What Lot did is still reprehensible to most of us, traditions of that day or not. “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.” (Gen. 19:8) It is what some Christians are doing today though, offering understanding without rebuking, showing love without reproving, hoping by offering these things that the situation would be changed, or at least averted and moved away from their doorstep.
Not calling sin what it is, is a sin in itself my friends, for the fear of the Lord is reverential trust and the hatred of evil.
By doing so you may call their wrath down upon you, just as those that night did to Lot. “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.” (Gen. 19:9)
Here then is where you will need to take a stand, and it matters little what type of sin you are confronted with, no matter the form you must remember, our responsibility is to reach the lost for the glory of God, and we cannot tell if in that group of wicked people there may be one of the lost. Your words and actions in that moment may be how the Holy Spirit will call that person to Himself.
But I ask you to look at one last correlation here. “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.” (Gen. 19:11) Even after their sight was taken from them, they did not repent, they had been given over completely to a reprobate mind, and God was preparing to send His judgment from the sky in just a few moments.
The woke, at least some of them, are not just hard of hearing, they are not just being led astray, they have been given over to a reprobate mind, and they are bound for eternal damnation. But there may be one who will listen, perhaps not today, but someday, and that should be reason enough for you to stand.
