The Truth of Genesis: As In the Days of Noah, Part 1 of 2

In Genesis chapter 18, Yehovah and two of His angels appeared to Abraham in the Plains of Mamre, in the year 2019 BC.

It was when Abraham was 99 years old, and one year before his son Isaac was born. Upon departing, Yehovah told Abraham that He was going to inquire against Sodom and Gomorrah, because their sin was very grievous. Abraham was able to get the Lord to agree to spare the cities if just ten righteous people could be found there. Abraham was afraid that his nephew Lot would be caught in the destruction.

After the two archangels (they had no wings) came to the city and walked to Lot’s house, the (perverted) men of the city who saw them wanted to make the visitors their lovers. The evil men had not ever done harm to Lot because he was “a celebrity.”

His uncle, Abraham, had saved the city about thirteen years earlier (Genesis 14). Since Lot was given a house for his family, he dwelt in the city, and the homosexuals left him alone.

However, when Lot tried to protect the angels, the perverts were going to molest Lot also when the angels blinded all the inhabitants near the house. Lot was told to get any relatives he had in the city and flee to the mountains, out of the plain. Lot had two daughters which had apparently married two decent men, but their husbands refused to leave Sodom. So Lot took his wife and two younger daughters, which were yet in his house, and went to the city of Zoar. Adding up the household of Lot, and his two sons in law, there were only eight people which were righteous in the city of Sodom, being two short of the required ten.

Take note in reading Genesis 19:23-30, that while traveling to Zoar, on their way to safety, Lot’s wife looked back at Sodom, and turned into a pillar of salt.

Therefore, the family was yet in the (valley of the) plain, where Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar of the five cites were. The other two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, apparently were at a higher level. What I’m getting at is the Dead (Salt) Sea is now where the plain was, also called the vale of Siddim, and has been made salty because of Lot’s wife. She was turned into a very, very powerful saline compound.

Why the history lesson?

Because Yeshua said “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed”, Luke 17:30. Jesus was saying that as it was in Sodom and Gomorrah, so shall it be like when He returns. Yet He also specifically said, “And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of (the coming of) the Son of man”, Luke 17:26.

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
