1. The land vomits up the inhabitants of nations which engage in same – sex relationships

In the previous post , we discovered that the Holy Scriptures Of Truth clearly revealed that same – sex relationships are perverse sexual practices.  God also warned Israel to heed the judgement of the Canaanites who were engaged in these practices. 

God said that the judgment of the Canaanites was twofold. First, the land would vomit up or spue out the inhabitants and secondly, they would be cast out of the land.  Israel would suffer the same judgment if they disobeyed the laws of God regarding sexual conduct:

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination (H8441) (Leviticus 18: 22)

‘You shall not lie with a man, as with a woman. That is detestible (HNV)

Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin (NLT).

If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood [shall be] upon them (Leviticus 20: 13).

Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it [is] confusion

Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:

And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit [any] of these abominations; [neither] any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you

(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which [were] before you, and the land is defiled;)

That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that [were] before you (Leviticus 18: 23- 28) .

2. What causes vomiting?

According to Webmd (2012) “vomiting is the forcible voluntary or involuntary emptying (“throwing up”) of stomach contents through the mouth.”  It is usually preceded by nausea or bad feelings which is“an uneasiness of the stomach”.  Nausea and vomiting are the symptoms of many conditions which include infections (such as the “stomach flu”), overeating  and a reaction to certain smells or odors.

Now God revealed in the holy scriptures that the land  vomits out its inhabitants when they defile the it with same – sex relationships.  God becomes nauseated when the stench of  this  perverted sexual  behavior reaches to heaven.

The stench and uncleanness of Sodom and Gomorrah was so great that God had to burn the garbage and turn the site into a landfill.  Scriptures reveal that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah rose up to heaven in the form of a cry:

But the men of Sodom [were] wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly (Gen 13: 13)

And the LORD said… the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;

I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know (Genesis 18: 20 & 21).

3. The cry of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah

The cry (za`aq) of those cities  was caused by the affliction of the people living there.  Genesis 19 revealed that the men of the city were merciless rapists who took advantage of the helpless. They had no respect for anyone and violated even the unwary visitor. This is the true and hidden spirit of homosexuality.  

The cry came from people in distress. It was:

  • a cry for help – Nehemiah 9: 9
  • a bitter cry –  Esther 4: 1
  • a cry of those who had been raped/whose blood had been shed in the act. They were crying out in anguish with no hope for help  because the behavior was institutionalized/legal – Job 16: 18
  • a cry of destruction – Isaiah 15: 5
  • the cry of  the little ones – Jeremiah 48: 4

Za`aq  (H2199),  the root word for cry, reveals even more about the nature of the cry of  Sodom and Gomorrah.  It is used as when: 

  • people cry out when they are in bondage or enslaved
  • the entire nation called out in distress
  • a deliverer was needed
  • oppressors took advantage
  • people cried out loudly
  • crying was accompanied by howling

Conclusion

Those who push the “Gay” agenda do not reveal the hidden torments and wickedness involved. For example, what is the fate of same – sex children adopted into same – sex marriages?   Can we hear the cry of those who have been mercilessly violated? What will be the fate of the innocent when nations legalize homosexuality and lesbianism? Sodom and Gomorrah answer the question for us.

Finally, God responds to the cry of this sin by causing the land to vomit or spue out its inhabitants in order to purge the land from the sin. In the case of Sodom and Gomorrah, there was a total destruction.

Do you wonder about the sudden tornadoes that have been causing major destruction in the United States? How about the flooding that causes people to flee from their homes? What about the dispersion of nations, like the attempted dispersion of Sodom and Gomorrah by conquest?

How does God judge this sin today? Ask the  question and open your eyes to see.
