29But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
31In 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.
32Remember Lot’s wife.
33Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.
34I tell you, in that night there shall be two men in one bed; the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left.
35Two women shall be grinding together; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
36Two men shall be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.”
In the days of Lot, the vast majority of the people ignored the fact that judgment was coming. They were oblivious to the danger. So they lived their lives in their usual manner, eating, drinking, partying, and enjoying their worldly possessions. But then judgment came. Fire and brimstone consumed them and destroyed them. Jesus said that is the way it will be when He returns to earth in power and great glory. The earth’s population will not be ready!
“Remember Lot’s wife.” As they were fleeing Sodom, she looked back because she loved Sodom and did not want to leave. God was disgusted with her and turned her into a pillar of salt. Remember Lot’s wife, and remember that she was a worldly person. Remember that she was a believer who had contempt for the will of God. Remember that God dealt with her according to her own deeds. Tribulation saints (not the Church, for the Church will have been raptured) are warned to be ready for the Revelation of Christ for it will be a time of judgment.
