And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Timothy 3:15 & 16
Thy word is true from the beginning:
and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.
|In Remembrance Of Lot’s Wife|
And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he which shall be upon the housetop, and his stuff in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot’s wife.
This is a short study from a sermon preached concerning Lot’s wife. Nothing much is said about Lot’s wife in the Old Testament and yet there is a commandment from the Lord to remember this woman. The reason for believers to remember Lot’s wife is connected with last day’s events. It concerns those living during perilous times just prior to the second coming of Christ. Though the commandment issued by the Lord to remember Lot’s wife has to do with things to come concerning the last days just like those of Noah and Lot, remembering Lot’s wife is always applicable throughout the Church Age for Christians. Remembering Lot’s wife should not be regarded as a commandment meant only for those living during the times of Jacob’s trouble or for saints living just prior to the rapture of the Church. For Christians are told to be watchful for we know not when the Lord might come. So remembering Lot’s wife has many practical applications for Christians seeking to live a life of vigilance ever looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith. This matter concerns the practical sanctification of the child of God during his earthly pilgrimage like Abraham. With the help of God and by the grace of the Lord, may Christians live a life that is pleasing in the sight of the Lord Jesus Christ!
