Remember Lot's Wife - Luke 17:32-33 - End Times Events

Remember Lot's Wife - Luke 17:32-33

 LOTS WIFE - REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE - In Luke 17:32-33 - END TIMES EVENTS - Jesus warns, "Remember Lots Wife." What does Jesus want us to remember about Lot's Wife? (Genesis 19:26) Lot's Wife disobeyed God's Command: "Do Not Look Back" (Genesis 19:17). Lot's Wife did NOT believe the Words of the Lord, and it cost her, her Life— as the LORD turned Lot's Wife into a PILLAR OF SALT! (Genesis 19:26) MANY people now a days do NOT BELIEVE what GOD'S WORD says either— it will costs them their ETERNAL SOULS!

KEY SCRIPTURES ON: LOT, LOT'S WIFE, and on SODOM and GOMORRAH:

  • Luke 17:32-33 (NASB) Jesus says, "REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE. Whoever SEEKS to KEEP his LIFE will LOSE IT, and whoever LOSES HIS LIFE will PRESERVE IT."

  • Genesis 19:24-26 (NASB) "Then the LORD rained on SODOM and GOMORRAH BRIMSTONE and FIRE from the LORD out of HEAVEN, and HE overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. But his (LOT'S) WIFE, from behind him, LOOKED BACK, and she became a PILLAR OF SALT."

  • Luke 17:26-33 (NASB) Jesus warns, “Just as it happened in the DAYS OF NOAH, so it will be ALSO in the DAYS of the SON OF MAN (JESUS): they were EATING, they were DRINKING, they were MARRYING, they were being GIVEN IN MARRIAGE (getting married), until the DAY that NOAH entered the ARK, and the FLOOD came and DESTROYED them ALL. It was the SAME as happened in the DAYS OF LOT: they were EATING, they were DRINKING, they were BUYING, they were SELLING, they were PLANTING, they were BUILDING; but on the DAY that LOT went OUT from SODOM it rained FIRE and BRIMSTONE from HEAVEN and DESTROYED them ALL. It will be just the SAME on the DAY that the SON OF MAN is REVEALED. On that DAY, the one who is on the HOUSETOP and WHOSE GOODS are in the house must not go down to take them out; and likewise the one who is in the field must not turn back. REMEMBER LOT'S WIFE. Whoever SEEKS to KEEP his LIFE will LOSE IT, and whoever LOSES HIS LIFE will PRESERVE (KEEP) IT."

  • 2 Peter 2:4-10 (NASB) "For if God did not spare ANGELS when they SINNED, but CAST them into HELL and committed them to PITS OF DARKNESS, reserved for JUDGMENT; and did not spare the ancient world, but PRESERVED NOAH, a PREACHER of RIGHTEOUSNESS, with SEVEN others, when HE brought a FLOOD upon the WORLD of the UNGODLY; and if HE CONDEMNED the cities of SODOM AND GOMORRAH to DESTRUCTION by reducing them to ASHES, having made them an EXAMPLE to those who would live UNGODLY LIVES THEREAFTER; and if HERESCUED RIGHTEOUS LOT, oppressed by the SENSUAL CONDUCT of UNPRINCIPLED MEN (for by what he SAW and HEARD that RIGHTEOUS MAN, while LIVING AMONG THEM, felt his RIGHTEOUS SOUL TORMENTED DAY AFTER DAY by their LAWLESS DEEDS), then the LORD knows how to RESCUE the GODLY from TEMPTATION, and to KEEP the UNRIGHTEOUS under PUNISHMENT for the DAY OF JUDGMENT, and ESPECIALLY those who INDULGE THE FLESH in its CORRUPT DESIRES and DESPISE AUTHORITY."

  • Matthew 24:37-39 (NASB) Jesus warns, For the COMING of the SON OF MAN  will be JUST LIKE the DAYS of NOAHFor as in those DAYS BEFORE the FLOOD they were EATING & DRINKING, MARRYING & GIVING IN MARRIAGE, until the DAY that NOAH entered the ARKand they did NOT understand until the FLOOD CAME and took them ALL AWAY; so will the COMING of the SON OF MAN be."

Video: 7 Characteristics of the Coming King, Part 1 (Luke 17:31-37) - John MacArthur

  • Genesis 19:15-16 "When morning dawned, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Up, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away in the punishment of the city.” But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, for the compassion of the LORD was upon him; and they brought him out, and put him outside the city.”

Note the word (by the Angels), "or you (Lot) will be swept away in the punishment of the city.” But he (Lot) HESITATED (LINGERED).."

We may note that Lot was not obeying the Lord as he ought, because he HESITATED (LINGERED). Even though the people of the city were wicked, something there still seemed to be an attraction to Lot. He was having difficulty leaving. Pulling away from sin, even from our sinful environment or surroundings, may be difficult sometimes. Sin has an alluring attraction for the flesh. Sin may offer pleasure but produces death. Christians are not to have fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness-ref Eph 5:11. Yet, it can be difficult to cut those ties. People often refuse to obey God and leave their dead churches. They do not want to leave the blind leaders of the blind. They refuse to obey God and continue to fellowship with those that hate God. They linger.

  • Genesis 19:16 "But he hesitated. So the men seized his hand and the hand of his wife and the hands of his two daughters, for the COMPASSION of the LORD was upon him (Lot); and they brought him out, and put him outside the city.”

 

Lot is Given Two Direct Commands: Escape & Look Not Behind - Gen 19:17

  • Genesis 19:17 "And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, ESCAPE FOR YOUR LIFE; LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE, neither stay in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest you be consumed."
One of the angels said to Lot, "Escape for your life; look not behind thee."

NOTE, TWO DIRECT COMMANDS ARE GIVEN:

1 - ESCAPE - Gen 19:17
2 - LOOK NOT BEHIND THEE - Gen 19:17

We need to escape from the ways of the world. We need to be set free from the works of darkness. We need to overcome all things. Once we begin to follow Jesus, we should not look back but forward to Jesus. We should not look back and desire our old sinful ways. Our past is to be put behind us as we put off the old and put on the new. As it is written,

  • Luke 9:62 "No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."

The Lord continued,

  • Genesis 19:17 "When they had brought them outside, one said, “Escape for your life! Do not look behind you, and do not stay anywhere in the valley; escape to the mountains, or you will be swept away."

Again, Lot hesitates in obeying the Lord.

  • Genesis 19:18 "Lots said unto them, oh, not so, my Lord."

Lot is listening to another voice: a voice of compromise, a voice of fearfulness, a voice prompted by his emotions.

  • Genesis 19:19 Lot said, "Now behold, your servant has found favor in your sight, and you have magnified your lovingkindness, which you have shown me by saving my life; but I cannot escape to the mountains, for the disaster will overtake me and I will die."

Lot was fearful. He was not trusting in the Lord as he ought. He did not understand that what he feared might come upon him in the mountain, indeed, might come upon him in Zoar.

  • Genesis 19:20-21 Lot continued, “Now behold, this town is near enough to flee to, and it is small. Please, let me escape there (is it not small?) that my life may be saved.” He (the Lord) said to him, “Behold, I grant you this request also, not to overthrow the town of which you have spoken.”
  • Genesis 19:22 "Hurry, escape there, for I cannot do anything until you arrive there.” Therefore the name of the town was called a Zoar.”

Note the words, "I cannot do anything until you arrive there."

Lot had to escape to safety before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities of the plain would take place.

  • Genesis 19:22 ..."Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar."

Some may say this is a type of Rapture, wherein the saints have to be removed before the Tribulation can begin.

  • Genesis 19:23-25 "The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

The people in Sodom were probably laughing and joking about the possibility of their city being destroyed by the Lord. But then it happened, and their mocking was undoubtedly turned into screams of terror and death.

Lot's Wife Looks Back

Lot's Wife Looks Back

  • Genesis 19:26 "But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt."

She did not believe the words of the Lord. It cost her, her life. Many today will not believe that God means what He says. It costs them their life.

One might wonder if Lot's arguing with the Lord about not going to the mountain, but rather to Zoar and succeeding, could have caused his wife to think that she could disobey God and look back, and nothing would happen. Was her looking back simply to see what had happened, or was it a longing for the city she had left? Was it a desire to return to the old, rather than proceed to the new to which God in His mercy had called her? It appears her heart will still in Sodom. She had left her house behind, her friends, and the sons-in-law that were engaged to her two daughters.

Remember Lot's Wife

Remember Lot's Wife - Luke 17:32-33

We are reminded in the Scriptures,

  • Luke 17:32 Jesus says, "Remember Lot's Wife."

Once God has called you out of the darkness into His marvelous light, do not look back.

Remember, Lot was afraid to escape to the mountain lest some evil would overtake him. It is written,

  • Genesis 19:30 "And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave"

How much better it is to obey God the first time and not argue with Him. We need to learn to be childlike, humble, and submissive before God's Word without arguing.

Lot had gone toward Sodom with great riches. He came out hesitantly and having nearly nothing. He had become a compromiser. He came out with a carnal or lukewarm attitude. He had become fearful. He had lost nearly all worldly possessions even his house. He lost his sons-in-law. He lost his friends. He lost his wife, and his daughters had become perverted. Lot went toward Sodom rich. He came out poor.
Did Lot succeed in causing Sodom to repent? No. Did they cause him to become carnal? Yes. Did his wife and daughters turn from the ways of God? Yes. Were the sons-in-law that were engaged to his daughters men of faith? No.

  • Genesis 19:31-35 "And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us (that we may preserve seed of our father)...Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father. And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not... And... on the morrow...the younger arose, and lay with him.."

Lot’s own daughters had become perverted with Sodom’s standards.
