e do not have any record where Jesus tells us of the exact date of His return to the earth, which signifies the end of age, but we have records of His warnings of the events that will occur, preceding His return and the close of age.
We are getting there already.
Gospel writers, Matthew and Mark quoted Jesus as saying: 14 When ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that reads understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
15 And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take anything out of his house:
16 And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.
17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days
18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter (Mark 13:14-18; Matt:24:14-18).
Great abomination has occurred again. God destroyed the cities that did something close to it with fire the first time. Only three people survived it (Genesis 19).
Unfortunately, people do not learn from history. Or else, the Supreme Court of America will have said "NO" emphatically. Rather it says "Yes" to two muscular men, wearing coats to be pronounced and licensed as husband and wife and two feminists wearing bra could be pronounced and licensed as husband and wife. What a time for people who fear God in America to heed the advice of Prophet Daniel to run and take cover.
So today, the topic of my sermon is "The Reincarnation of Sodom & Gomorrah; Brazen Conspiracy against God"
Let us pray as Dr. Dn. Kayode Samuel does.
The topic of my sermon again is "The Return of Sodom & Gomorrah; Brazen Conspiracy against God"
I tried to woo a high School senior of mine to attend our Church. He replied me that I am not doing what he would like me to do and so he would not come. I asked him what he will like me to do. He said rather than laboring myself, asking Nigerians to repent of their sins, what he wants me to do at every of my broadcast is to ask God to wipe off Nigeria totally because of our stinking wickedness.
Senior, if you are hearing me, God has answered your prayer request. Without praying such prayers, the world, as of June 26 2015 moved very close to the very verge of extinct, when the Lord will burn it all except those who do His will.
June 26 2015 was the date when the Supreme Court of America on a vote of 5 to 4 legalizes a union between man and man, also a woman and another woman.
God has aforetime wiped the entire world off and He will do it again.
Let us go into some historical excursion.
We read in the book of Genesis of the Bible chapter 6. Verse 5:
5 Then the LORD[b] saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping things and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I have made them.
So, God made water to rain on the earth for 40 days and forty nights and the waters of the flood washed off every inhabitants of the earth.
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. His wife, with his 3 sons and his sons' wives, who were found righteous entered into the ark of salvation shortly before the rain started (Genesis 7:7; 1Peter 3:20).
There was another incident that was recorded in the same book of Genesis of the Bible in Chapter 18. God said in Verse 20 that the sin of the people of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah is very grievous. Reading further into chapter 19, we are able to understand the sin of the people of Sodom and Gomorrah, which God described as grievous. They engaged in homosexuality.
And what was the consequence? Appropriate judgment.
"As the sun was rising over the horizon. 24 Then the LORD rained down fire and burning sulfur from the sky on Sodom and Gomorrah. 25 He utterly destroyed them, along with the other cities and villages of the plain, wiping out all the people and every bit of vegetation" (Gen.19:24-25)
It is very pitiful that the sin, which God sees as grievous, for which He once destroyed cities, is the same that America, the most powerful country on earth is now excited about and has now decided to celebrate.
I ask sadly, when will man learn from history? What a spite on God! What a contempt on Him!
God made man first. He further realized that it was not good for man to be alone, so He made a woman for him and not another man. But some people now think that they know more than God; they are wiser than God and they are reversing it.
King Solomon, the wisest man in history who wrote the book of Ecclesiastes observed in chapter 8 vs 11 that Because God does not punish sinners instantly, people feel it is safe to do wrong . It is reported in the King James version as "Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil" (Eccl 8:11)
But what really happens is explained by the apostle Peter in his second book chapter 3 vs 9 as "The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; But he is waiting, for the good reason that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent " (TLB) (2Peter3:9)
Now, we seem to be exhausting His patience and there is no other thing we deserve again other than judgement.
Politicians in Nigeria whose hands are deep in corruption have suddenly become anti-corruption preachers after many citizens have died through their various thefts and when they are yet even to vomit all the loots of the people's wealth. What a height of hypocrisy or could it be that they are already fidgeting, afraid that justice is catching up on them?
The way Nigerians dupe themselves is frightening. Men of the Customs and all others in the law enforcing agencies and Civil Servants in charge of money are all evil, wicked and dangerous.
America and other countries of the world regarded as civilized have become so civilized that they have lost their senses to Satan or how do you explain two heavy breasted men, one answering wife and the other answering husband? How do you explain two women, each covering their bursts with bra, yet one answers husband and the other wife? Is that not sick?
Craze and lust for money and power can certainly make one to lose his sense of judgement.
Only God knows how highly I esteem this President; the pride of the Black race, brilliant and perceived to be of high integrity.
He is very versed in the Scripture but because he probably could not resist the votes of those who brazenly pour contempt on God's law and precepts during his Presidential campaign some few years ago, could not say "To hell with your votes, to hell with my Presidential ambition. I would rather not be president but gain heaven" and declare like Peter and John did "Judge ye who we are to obey, but we must obey God rather than men" (Acts 4:19; 5:29)
Soon as the Court read its split ruling, the president called and congratulated the 'Rebel leader' and in a couple of hours afterwards, he was singing in a South Carolina Church "Amazing Grace that saved a wretch like me" What a contradiction?
Paul said "Shall we uphold sin and expect Grace to abound?" (Romans 6:1)
King David had predicted this day. Hear him in Psalms 2
Why do the heathen rage? i.e Why are the nations so angry? Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle;
the rulers plot together
against the LORD
and against His anointed one.
3 "Let us break their chains," they cry,
"and free ourselves from slavery to God."
4 But the one who rules in heaven laughs.
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger he rebukes them,
terrifying them with his fierce fury.
People think that to obey God's law is putting themselves in slavery and they must liberate themselves.
But what will be the consequences? King David said as he closed his Psalm "But the one who rules in heaven laughs.
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger he rebukes them,
terrifying them with his fierce fury"
To say that the American constitution supports marriage between a man and a man on one hand and in another hand, a woman and a woman is fraudulent.
To the best of my knowledge and everyone who will be truthful, American constitution is based on the Bible. On every American monetary coin and note is written "In God we trust" In fact most countries of the world derive their legal frame work from the Law of Moses. And under the law of Moses, the penalty for homosexuality was 'death' (Lev. 20:12-16).
Every argument to support homosexuality is from the pit of hell. Any biological, physiological or scientific claim is false. It has none of them as base or foundation. Man is just willfully doing what he likes, obeying the voice of the devil.
There are two voices contending for the control of the mind of man; the voice of God and the voice of Satan.
However, man has the free will to obey whoever he wants to obey. And after a while, God will give up anyone who willfully wants to get out of the control of the Holy Spirit to do irritating things. Paul explains it explicitly in the book of the Romans chapter 1 verse 18 to the end of the chapter.
18 But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness.[i] 19 They know the truth about God because He has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities-his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God.
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn't worship Him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what He was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools. 23 And instead of worshiping the glorious, ever-living God, they worshiped idols made to look like mere people and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 So God abandoned them to do whatever shameful things their hearts desired. As a result, they did vile and degrading things with each other's bodies.
25 They traded the truth about God for a lie. So they worshiped and served the things God created instead of the Creator Himself, who is worthy of eternal praise! Amen. 26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, He abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done. ------------ 32 They know God's justice requires that those who do these things deserve to die, yet they do them anyway. Worse yet, they encourage others to do them, too (Romu 1:18-28, 31).
The judgement of God will surely come. If God had judged such sins in the past with appropriate punishment, why will anyone think they will be spared this time? The only way out for anyone who has listening ears is to hide himself under the merciful grace of salvation provided in Jesus Christ so that even if the body suffers punishment here below, he can wake up to eternal life with Jesus where there will be no more death but joy all through; life eternal.
But if any of these rebels refuses to accept the merciful grace of God now, he will burn here below and start to burn again in hell, eternally. May God enable you to make the right choice.
Let us pray.
My name is Sam Aweda, I am the Pastor, Jesus for the World Revival Mission also known as the Peoples' Church.
It is my prayer that you will today consider your status with God, ask yourself whether you already secure a place for yourself in heaven. Your place in heaven is decided when you are still alive and not after you die.
Contact me today for all your spiritual needs on 0810 041 6347 or 0815 735 5048.
I am praying that the Lord puts it in your mind to support this work. Call those numbers and you will be told how your support will reach us.
Our location in Ilorin is near Ganmo on Afon Road on the rt side, directly opposite the Power Transmission Station just before the railway intersection before you reach Ogbondoroko.
I will be happy that you join us for prayers on Thursdays at 5.00pm at the location I just described so that God can take our poverty away in this land.
Poverty can make one to dip his hands into sin, thereby lose a place in heaven.
God can make our country like one of those we all try to escape to. It is something He will be glad to do for us if we sincerely ask Him.
So come with us on Thursdays at 500pm. Invite your friends and relations as well and let us seek the face of God on this nation. The larger the praying force, the quicker and faster the result.
Satan itself and all its agents working against our well-being themselves will become jittery, seeing a mammoth crowd, millions, praying and they will promptly know that their time of evil practices is up.
So, join us since you do not have another country other than Nigeria.
