When Abraham gave Lot his
choice of where to live, what did Lot choose for himself and his family?
"And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that
it was well watered everywhere, before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah,
even as the garden of the Lord. ...Then Lot chose him all the plain of
Jordan." Genesis 13:10, 11.
Where did this choice
"Abram dwelled in the land of Canaan, and Lot dwelled in the cities
of the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom." Verse 12.
What were the inhabitants
of that city like?
"But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord
exceedingly." Verse 13.
description of this city is given us in the Word of God?
"Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness
of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither
did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty,
and committed abomination before Me: therefore I took them away as I
saw good." Ezekiel 16:49, 50. (See Genesis 19:19.)
How did their conduct
"And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the
wicked: (for that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed
his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds)." 2 Peter
Before destroying Sodom
and Gomorrah, whom did the Lord send to deliver Lot and his family?
"And there came two angels to Sodom at even." "And the
men [angels] said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy
sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou has in the city, bring them out of
this place: for we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen
great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy
it." Genesis 19:1, 12, 13.
Was Lot successful in
warning his married children?
"And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married
his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will
destroy this city, But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in
law." Verse 14.
What did the angels tell
Lot the next morning?
"Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest
thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city ...Escape for thy life; look not
behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest
thou be consumed." Verses 15-17.
What occurred next?
"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."
Because the affections of
Lot's wife were still in Sodom, what happened to her?
"But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar
of salt." Verse 26.
Foretelling the condition
of the world just prior to His Second Advent, to what did Christ liken it?
"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." Luke 17:28-30.
