Wesley's Notes for Genesis 19:24


19:24 Then the Lord rained - from the Lord - God the Son, from God the Father, for the Father has committed all judgment to the Son. He that is the Saviour will be the destroyer of those that reject the salvation.

    Verse 3: Lot showed hospitality to the angels. Lot knew how corrupt the city was and he made sure he took the angles into his house to provide for them and to protect them.

    Serrallez, read verse 37. The 2 daughters now have sons. (They "laid" w him)

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Down through the ages, God has been consistent in warning about His impending wrath. He never leaves us in doubt of his plan and oftentimes we are too blind or obstinate to see. This chapter exemplifies God's second chance opportunity for humanity and the inclination of humans to keep regressing into sin like Lot's wife did by looking back. May His Grace help us walk along the narrow way to heaven

    Let's not forget that Abraham and GOD had a covenant and that covenant was between GOD and Abraham not Lot. When GOD called Abraham out of the land of which his family, Lot was not supposed to come. No where in previous scripture do we notice a covenant or fellowship that occurred between Lot and GOD so it is safe to say that the mercy extended on Lot was on the strength of Abraham Genesis 19:29
  • Eve
    Lot's wife looking back, would simply suggest that she went back to her sinful life being that Sodom and Gomorrah was a sinful city hence it could be that her heart was of lust of the world; the vanity of what she is leaving behind and that her heart wasn't towards God. The word of God declares in psalms 24:3-4 in order for us to enter in God's presence we gave to be set apart, we can't b lustful
  • Lynn
    Even when God sent his angels to bring Lot out of danger Lot was reluctant to go. The Angels had to put their hands on him and his family and quide them out. I hope for this mercy in my own life, for I'm often slow to do what I should do.
