Bible Study on Genesis 19 | Bible Study the Whole Bible with Me


Bible Study on Genesis 19 | Bible Study the Whole Bible with Me Genesis 19 was definitely interesting
and you’ll see why it picks up actually the same day as Genesis 18 because you
know if you haven’t read Genesis 18 I’ll link the video all back and watch it
trust me you should watch it before you watch this video but you know Genesis 19
picks up the same day as Genesis 18 and we can now confirm that two of the three
men were indeed angels and they arrived at Sodom and some really interesting
things are going on at Sodom and it makes you realize why God wanted to wipe
it out lot insisted on serving two of the men that showed up to his house so
lot got up right away he washed their feet and he opened his home to them so
he wanted them to be his guests I think he probably could tell that they were
people of God that they were different verses four through five all of the men
from Sodom surrounded the house to sleep with the two angels and they wanted to
force themselves onto them and the men were trying to force themselves and I
said all the men of Sodom every single one I said young and old they all wanted
to participate in that and they were all trying to force their way onto the two
angels and lot can recognize that and remember a lot is supposed to be a man
of God but because of him living in this type of you know very sinful town
I feel like lot kind of lost himself along the way a lot definitely wasn’t
walking with God as fully as he is he could if he wasn’t living up to his 100%
potential and the will of God that he could have for his life so verses six
through eight lot said no to the men he did not want them to come in and this
was so bizarre to me you know he said even though he can see all these men who
were being I can imagine them as being very angry and just kind of Aryan you
know the Bible says that they were trying to like force themselves so you
know these men we’re not you know kind hearted people they didn’t sound
like you know good people and not offered his two daughters to them so
that makes you think about lovely what kind of person is like that you’re
offering your two daughters lot says you know here are my two daughters they are
virgins and you can take them for yourselves and the man said no
thankfully verse nine the men of Sodom became angry as lot is not from Sodom so
then men started to say who is this guy he’s not even from here and he’s telling
us what to do and they threatened to even break down the door and hurt lot
and the Angels they kind of stepped in and they got lot into the house and to
safety and they blinded the men those so they were able to blind all the men and
that’s how they kept them not only themselves thief but also a lot and they
told a lot you know take your wife your family you know is there any good men
left in this town take them and tell them to go so that was verses 12 and 13
the angels told a lot to get his family out of Sodom as they plan to destroy it
they blinded the men and verse 14 lot tried to go get his son-in-law so his
daughters the two daughters that we talked about in verses 6 through 8 they
were to be married to these two men and lot went and found them and he said hey
we got to get out of Sodom because God is going to destroy this town we gotta
go and they left and lot they didn’t take him seriously they said okay sure
think about it is there somebody in your life who is very dedicated to God and
has a really good faith in God and you know they’re always raining their word
and you can go to them and talk to them about God and I think they were to come
to you and tell them you know something tell you something serious that they
they are saying is gonna happen would you take them seriously or would you not
versus somebody else who is not really in the word and kind of not someone who
has a biblical foundation if they’re saying God told me this you know if one
day I know where they’re saying God told me to do this would you believe that
person I hope I explained that okay and I feel like that’s kind of the situation
with lot he kind of been it sounds like he was
living his life kind of lukewarm and I feel not sure what that term means
lukewarm is pretty much like a Christian who is not living a hundred percent for
God but it’s also not living a hundred percent in the world and God actually
tells us to be careful of that kind of living the Bible says he would rather us
be hot or cold but not lukewarm so we’re either for the kingdom and representing
God 100% or we’re in the world so you know pick God you know choose God always
but it sounds like a lot wasn’t living the life that was you know on fire for
God and so when he went and told his son in laws like God is gonna destroy this
town we need to get out of here they laughed at him and they did not believe
him they said yeah right okay and they ended up dying
they died in that city because they didn’t listen to him so verses 15
through 17 the angel urged lot to hurry and to leave the city and it said that
the word actually said that lot hesitated and that shows still like even
though he knows the sin he’s going to be destroyed he you know hesitated and he’s
still longed for that part of you know that sin Lee sinful um City and the
worldly things of that city that it represented to him because remember he
got a lot of possessions and he probably had a lot of his possessions there and
that’s probably a part of the reason why he hesitated you know I don’t want to
leave my stuff in my house and this but none of that should matter to him the
Angels had to physically grab lot and his family and get them to safety
so that shows also that God kept Abraham’s promise because Abraham was
really worried about you know any of the good people left in Sodom and it seems
as if you know a lot and his family were it
perhaps his two son in laws but they didn’t even listen so angels had to
physically pull them out and they also instructed a lot to escape you know they
told him run run as far as you can and um he told them not to look back the
angel told them not to look back lot and his family hesitated they cared more for
the sinful city rather than obeying God which is crazy right this place is gonna
get destroyed and you are more worried about you know the city then obeying God
even though God is bringing you into safety lot pleaded to go to a nearby
city and Zoar and I’ve kept his promise to Abraham and he
spared lot so a lot sad you know instead of running for the mountains please let
me just go to this nearby city so still he wasn’t ready to fully let go of Sodom
and he went to this nearby city of Zoar and that’s where him and his daughters
were and I’m verses 23 through 26 Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and Lot’s
wife looked back you know the angel said don’t look back
she looked back and when she did she became a pillar of salt she disobeyed
and she wasn’t spared so you know despite you know all the multiple you
know warnings from the Angels don’t look back don’t you know just keep going run
as far as you can she still looked back and we need to evaluate our own lives
what are we looking back at are there things in our past that you know of the
world that we kind of longed for and we’re thinking back to you know I missed
that time in my life something that you’ve perhaps given up because of your
walk with God don’t look back to that because God has something so much more
beautiful and better for you better for your life so Lot’s wife turned into a
pillar of salt verses 27 through 29 Abraham sees Sodom and Gomorrah
destroyed but God remembered his prayer and he saved lot and he tried to save
lot son in laws as well but of course they didn’t listen and then this next
part gets weird again and again this just shows how lot probably wasn’t the
best you know godly figured not only to the people around him because his sudden
loss didn’t take him seriously but also to his family so a lot of his daughters
left sore due to fear which I read that and I was just wondering you know fear
you know what were they afraid of I don’t even know what kind of trouble
they got into at Zoar or you know what happened there but it says that they
left Zhora in fear and they fled to the
mountains so whatever was there going through in that little town must have
been pretty bad and they had to escape so both of his daughters they decided to
come up with a way to get pregnant because they said you know we don’t have
a me anymore and we need to continue our so and this was the older sisters idea
she said you know let’s get our Father drunk and sleep with him and get
pregnant so they did that on two separate occasions they got him so drunk
that they slept with him and they got pregnant from their father and one the
older one she named her son Moab and then the younger one named her son Ben
Amy and eventually they became the Moabites in the emanates and eventually
we will read about those two tribes and they were actually against God’s people
of Israel so it just goes to show that you know a lot could have had a much
different impact and influence on his family that eventually led to two tribes
that were turned their face against God so just you know I’ve talked about this
before but be really careful of the decisions that you make because it can
affect you know generationally you can affect your you know children and their
children and so on Lots lack of dedication to the Lord affected his
entire family the Moabites and ammonites were enemies of Israel which were God’s
people so don’t compromise be an example of
God’s Word and don’t have a love for the world and that’s it really important be
an example of God’s world to everyone not only when you’re at church but be an
example of God’s Word to your children when you’re at work when you’re at the
grocery store things like that you know because you never know who’s watching
you and who can be affected by that so that is all I have for today this was a
really interesting chapter next week we’ll be reading at Genesis 20 and I
will talk to you then
