America: A Modern Day Sodom and Gomorrah
The Judges of Sodom and Gomorrah
The Book of Yasher, which is an ancient book discovered in the 1800's reads in Chapter 19, Verses 1 and 3 that "the cities of Sodom had four judges to four cities...And by desire of their four judges the people of Sodom and Gomorrah had beds erected in the streets of the cities, and if a man came to these places they laid hold of him and brought him to one of their beds, and by force made him to lie in them." It is apparent that the streets became the playground for the sex crazed Sodomites, and it would appear that it was acceptable by those in authority, such as the unrighteous judges of Sodom and Gomorrah. Likewise, our President and judges today are tolerant and accepting of such unrighteous behavior. (See Holy Bible regarding references to The Book of Yasher in Joshua 10:13, 2 Samuel 1:18).
The Judges of America
In ancient times, there was never an effort made to legalize or morally legitimize homosexual unions or legislate into law same-sex marriages, like there presently is today. Perhaps, it was due in part to the fact that even the heathen nations feared the One true God, and this is most definitely lacking in our nation and the world.
Increasing Wickedness Running Rampant Throughout the Earth
Sexual immorality and infidelity has definitely been on the upswing, and you DO NOT have to look as far as Hollywood to see this to be true. This was also a major sin that the two wicked cities were involved in. However, again one of the "abominable" sins of Sodom and Gomorrah was that of homosexuality. Like the judges who also passed a law that involved the erecting of beds in the streets of those cities in order to facilitate the homosexual practices, likewise America's judges are attempting to facilitate homosexuality and gay unions, by passing into laws to legalize same-sex unions, which is in direct opposition to God's divine law.
Finally, Marriage is a holy institution established by God and is NOT to be tampered with. The Bible clearly and explicitly warns that what "God has joined together, let NO one separate or divide." When mankind violates and tampers with God's created order of male and female, by exploring a same gendered relationship, the result is category confusion, with one partner of such unions being mascularized and the other feminized in every instance.
Yet, in spite of this America has likewise and selectively chosen the path of the antediluvians of Noah's and Sodom and Gomorrah's day, whose end was DESTRUCTION when God destroyed the earth with a global and world-wide flood as well as burnt the cities of the plain, Sodom and Gomorrah, to the ground (Genesis Chapter 7; Genesis 18:20-33; Genesis Chapter 19) . And once again America and the world by an large has made itself ripe for His divine and, yes, impending judgment.
