Slammed Shut

The Bible says “But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.” Genesis 19:10-11 (KJV)

As Lot tries to reason with the men who have arrived at his house intent on sodomizing the men who have come to Lot’s house, the Lord and His messengers pull him back inside the house and slam the door. To further end the threat the Lord blinded the men attempting to gain entrance into the house.

Those men intent on such sinful acts were blind spiritually and then physically. Tragically, our society seems to be in the same boat. The Lord will only allow so much to take place before He also will shut the door barring them from entrance into heaven. The wickedness of man knows no bounds. Deny though they might their actions are not normal not the plan of God. God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. The Bible does not call it an alternative lifestyle but an abomination.

However, sin is sin and it will be dealt with. What if law enforcement was to go to come to any city in the USA and not only punish those who engage in homosexuality but also adultery and fornication? The jails would not have sufficient space to house them. Although they could repent, confess their sin and receive forgiveness, most will not and will one day find the same Lord Who punished Sodom and Gomorrah will also condemn them for eternity. The same door slamming which kept those wicked men out of Lot’s house will take place separating the lost from Heaven. When the Lord closes a door…it is shut.


Let’s encourage one another to tell all we can of the heaven to gain and the hell to avoid. May eyes be opened, sinners repent and Believers be drawn ever closer to the Lord. We are all one day closer to the door of heaven being slammed shut!
