This is seen in Genesis 20. the two members of the God family who went to investigate the state of the city really had planned to execute the plan that very night. They had planned to spend the night in the streets but changed those plans because of  Lot who pressed them to enter his house for the night. He knew the kind of treatment that unwary strangers received from the men of the city:

And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing [them] rose up to meet them;

And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night.d he bowed himself with his face toward the ground;

And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.

But before they lay down, the men of the city, [even] the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarterAnd they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where [are] the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

This is an outrageous event. Is it a scene from some modern day event? God surely demonstrated His hatred for this kind of lifestyle.

I tried to imagine the scene that could have ensued if the two members of the God family had stayed in the streets that night. The men of Sodom would have  attempted rape and they would have been destroyed maybe by some kind of plague. As it was, God spared us from seeing the extremes to which reprobate men would go to fulfill their lusts.

May God help us to walk in the paths of righteousness.
