✝️🗒️STUDY: “Remember Lot’s wife” was the admonition the Lord gave His disciples while prophesying the imminent judgement to be visited on Jerusalem for rejecting Him (Luke 17:25;19:41-44). As it was the days of Noah and Lot, punishment would come upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem suddenly. The believers were to watch for the ‘abominations of desolation’ spoken about by Daniel (Matt. 24:15). These should propel them to run for their dear lives. “The one who is on the house top, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take them away. And likewise the one who is in the field, let him not turn back”(v.31). Then He said, ‘Remember Lot’s wife” (v.32). Lot’s wife, while being forced to escape the judgment that was coming on Sodom and Gomorrah, was carried away with the lust for worldly possessions and thus failed to obey the order given by the angels not to look back. She looked back and became a pillar of salt (Gen. 19:26). She missed the salvation ofGod as her disobedience ended her life abruptly.
Beloved, over and over again, we have been warned that judgement is coming upon the world for rejecting the Lord Jesus Christ and His will. We are admonished to escape for our lives by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour and live to honour Him in truth and holiness. A good number of those who profess the Christian faith live carelessly and have not thrown away the pleasures of this sinful world. Some Christians can hardly be distinguished from unbelievers, a dangerous way to live. As a child of God, you must live by the dictates of the Word and deliberately prepare to meet the Lord when He comes back. Do not be like Lot’s wife who knew that judgment was coming but because of greed refused to heed the warning of the angels. May you end well!
✝️🙏Prayer: Dear Lord, enable me to end well, in Jesus name.
