Sin of Sodom

From PreparingYou
Jump to: navigation, search
The legal charity of rulers who exercise authority will always fail to strengthen the poor and degenerate society as Polybius warned more than a century before Christ and John the Baptist. Proverbs warns us to not consent to the one purse of socialism and to put a knife to our throat if we have an appetite for their dainties because they are the wages of unrighteousness. Cain, Nimrod, and FDR and LBJ offered welfare through force and fealty while Jesus and the prophets offered a daily bread through faith and charity which is love.
The daily ministration of the early Church has been supplanted by the covetous practices of the world which makes the word of God to none effect under the apostasy of the Modern Church and false religion.

Are we Mystery Babylon ... are we Sodom?

  • "And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;..." Genesis 18:20

What makes sin very grievous?

Most people will tell you that the sin of Sodom was sodomy but that is not what Ezekiel tells us.

  • "Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy." Ezekiel 16:49

The word strengthen[1] is from the root KufZayinChet but here we see it written with additional letters of HeyKufYodZayinChetHey הֶחֱזִֽיקָה preceeded by the negative LamedAlef.

  • ה Hey Expression--Thought, Speech, Action. Manifest seeds of thought and life. [Emphasize, jubilation, window, fence] 5
  • ק Kuf or Kof Omnipresence - Redemption of Fallen Sparks The paradoxical union Reish and a Zayin holiness or separateness omnipresence of God [Cord... back of the head... Behind the last, least] 100
  • י Yod The Infinite Point of essential good hidden in the ט Tet . [closed hand... Deed work to make] 10
  • זָ ז Zayin The "Crowned" head. The Service and Valor, cut and bread, war and nourish. [weapon.... Cut to cut off manacle] 7.
  • ח Chet The Life Force - Dynamic nature of -cause and effect- give life and live.[fence, thread, hedge, chamber...cycle] 8
  • ה Hey Expression--Thought, Speech, Action. Manifest seeds of thought and life. [Emphasize, jubilation, window, fence] 5
This word HeyKufYodZayinChetHey הֶחֱזִֽיקָה [he·ḥĕ·zî·qāh] has to do with the Expression of Thought manifesting in Speech and Action in a process of Redemption of the Fallen Spark of God ... the rekindling of the divine spark in man through The Service and Valor of The Life Force and the Dynamic nature of the cause and effect through the manifesting nature of the power or spirit of creation working in us.

The sin was not that there was no free bread or welfare from the city but that the form and manner of that welfare failed "to be or grow firm or strong, strengthen" the hand[2] of the poor[3] and needy[4].

The socialism and common purse of Sodom weakened the people. It made the government the owner of the possessions of the people and even the people[5] themselves as human resources.

Abraham, Moses', and Christ's form of government returned every man to his family and to his possessions.[6] But the covetous practices of the people and the exercising authority of civil benefactors of the world not only make the word of God to none effect it makes the people merchandise and curses their children.


What is sin?

The word translated sin in the text is chatta’ah which is ChetTetAlefHey.[7] Although in this verse we see additional letters added to the primary word. VavChetTetAlefTavMem וְחַ֨טָּאתָ֔ם which is wə·ḥaṭ·ṭā·ṯām. It is consistently translated "and their sin". The letter Tav meaning "faith" and the letter Mem tells us this has something to do with the "flow of faith". The Vav at the beginning may be inferring that there is a separation because people are cut off from the "flow of faith". The root word is chata[8] which is some times translated sin ut specifically means "to miss the way, go wrong."

What we often call sin is really only the evidence that we have separated ourselves from the righteous way by going or being led off the path. Sodomy, covetousness, or acts of wantonness or violence or addiction may merely be evidence that we have abandoned a natural life of faith and charity.

Supporting the poor with funds forced from one class of citizens or people by the exercise of authority by the State as we see in all forms of Socialism brings the whole of society into bondage, often addicting the people to a dependence upon the State as the power elite of the State becomes just as addicted to the power the exercise one over the other.

If a society accepts the idea that forced offerings extract from the people to provide welfare for the people is acceptable all of society will go under the power of that force. Only a society willing to support the needs of society with freewill offerings and a daily ministration through charity will remain free under the perfect law of liberty.

Polybius said it best.

"The masses continue with an appetite for benefits and the habit of receiving them by way of a rule of force and violence. The people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others... institute the rule of violence; [9] and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder,[10] until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch." [11] [12]

Polybius saw the downfall of the republic by way of their free bread and welfare a 150 years before the first Emperor of Rome and 175 years before the birth of John the Baptist and Jesus the Christ who opposed these same systems of free bread at your neighbor's expense.

The authoritarian State uses force and violence to become the Benefactors of the people. They force one class of citizen to provide for another through "legal charity" which is not true charity. The writings of the Apostles warned along with countless passages of ancient writings of the prophets including Proverbs 23 advised what Christ forbid the covetous practices of socialist forms of government.

If people leave the righteousness of The Way there will be sin and the evidence of sin is seen in their wantonness for the wages of unrighteousness and their fear of choosing a life of faith. The poor will be weakened and society will go under tyrants until it falls. Not only the Ten Commandments but the long list of sins given us by Paul is warning us that we are going wrong and we will Not inherit the kingdom.

This is not to say that we are saved by works but if we are workers of iniquity in our practice of religion or works or lack of them give us a warning that our faith may not be as real as we would like to think.

Peter, Paul, James, and John Warned

Peter[13], Paul[14], James[15] and John[16]all 'warned the New Covenant Church that what they were doing and not doing would reveal the truth of their claim to faith in God and His Holy Spirit. Paul warned people to test their faith[17] to make sure they were not deceived or reprobates[18].

Even John warns that we need to walk according to what Jesus showed us and confess our sins if we are to be cleansed of unrighteousness.[19] John even gives the keeping of the commandments as the rod by which we measure the truth of our faith.[20] And those who do not keep the commandments are a liar and Christ is not in them.[21] Over and over John repeats that he that "doeth not righteousness" is not born again of Christ and the Father.[22] And John warns us that we may not only be deceived but may deceive ourselves [23] warning us of the many false teachers who are "out in the world".[24]

The Bible from the beginning warns[25] and continues those warnings throughout the New Testament that many will be decieved thinking they are believers while in truth they are workers of iniquity.[26] Because these warnings are ignored by the modern Church, the welfare of a foolish[27] society has become a snare.

  • “It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder.”[28]

"But when a new generation arises and the democracy falls into the hands of the grandchildren of its founders, they have become so accustomed to freedom and equality that they no longer value them, and begin to aim at pre-eminence; and it is chiefly those of ample fortune who fall into this error. 6 So when they begin to lust for power and cannot attain it through themselves or their own good qualities, they ruin their estates, tempting and corrupting the people in every possible way. 7 And hence when by their foolish thirst for reputation they have created among the masses an appetite for gifts and the habit of receiving them, democracy in its turn is abolished and changes into a rule of force and violence. 8 For the people, having grown accustomed to feed at the expense of others and to depend for their livelihood on the property of others, as soon as they find a leader who is enterprising but is excluded from the houses of office by his penury, institute the rule of violence; 9 and now uniting their forces massacre, banish, and plunder, until they degenerate again into perfect savages and find once more a master and monarch." Polybius: The Histories (composed at Rome around 130 BC)Fragments of Book VI, p289 See also Loeb Classical Library edition, 1922 thru 1927
  12. An alternate translation in context, "9. For no sooner had the knowledge of the jealousy and hatred existing in the citizens against them which is replaced by democracy, emboldened some one to oppose the government by word or deed, than he was sure to find the whole people ready and prepared to take his side. Having then got rid of these rulers by assassination or exile, they do not venture to set up a king again, being still in terror of the injustice to which this led before; nor dare they intrust the common interests again to more than one, considering the recent example of their misconduct: and therefore, as the only sound hope left them is that which depends upon themselves, they are driven to take refuge in that; and so changed the constitution from an oligarchy to a democracy, and took upon themselves the superintendence and charge of the state. And as long as any survive who have had experience of oligarchical supremacy and domination, they regard their present constitution as a blessing, and hold equality and freedom as of the utmost value. But as soon as a new generation has arisen, and the democracy has descended to their children’s children, long association weakens their value for equality and freedom, and some seek to become more powerful than the ordinary citizens; and the most liable to this temptation are the rich. (which degenerates into rule of corruption and violence, only to be stopped by a return to despotism.) So when they begin to be fond of office, and find themselves unable to obtain it by their own unassisted efforts and their own merits, they ruin their estates, while enticing and corrupting the common people in every possible way. By which means when, in their senseless mania for reputation, they have made the populace ready and greedy to receive bribes, the virtue of democracy is destroyed, and it is transformed into a government of violence and the strong hand. For the mob, habituated to feed at the expense of others, and to have its hopes of a livelihood in the property of its neighbours, as soon as it has got a leader sufficiently ambitious and daring, being excluded by poverty from the sweets of civil honours, produces a reign of mere violence. Then come tumultuous assemblies, massacres, banishments, redivisions of land; until, after losing all trace of civilisation, it has once more found a master and a despot."

  13. “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.” 2 Peter 1:10, 11
    2 Peter 2:14 "Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; curse children:"
    2 Peter 2:3 "And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
  14. 2 Timothy 3:1 ¶ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; 5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, 7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. 9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. 10 ¶ But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, 11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
    Ephesians 5:1 ¶ Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; 2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour. 3 ¶ But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

    1 Corinthians 6:9 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

  15. James 1:21 Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls. 22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. 23 For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass: 24 For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. 25 But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
    James 5:12 ¶ But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and [your] nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation.

    1 John 2:11 But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.

  19. 1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  20. 1 John 2:3 ¶ And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
  21. 1 John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
  22. 1 John 2:29 If ye know that he is righteous, ye know that every one that doeth righteousness is born of him.
    1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God. 10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
    11 ¶ For this is the message that ye heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.
    1 John 3:24 And he that keepeth his commandments dwelleth in him, and he in him. And hereby we know that he abideth in us, by the Spirit which he hath given us.
  23. 1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1 John 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. 2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.
