“Remember Lot’s wife.” Luke 17:32

What a strange command for Jesus to give; especially since her name is never given to us. Why should she be remembered? What benefit would her remembrance achieve?

Lot was Abraham’s nephew who left Mesopotamia with Abraham when God called him to relocate. There is no doubt that Lot was a believer.

Not too many years ago, subjects like abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriages, children born out of wedlock, adultery, unmarried couples living together and our continued drug problem would have caused our pulpits to be on fire. Those God-called men would have preached loud and clear about God’s judgment. With our morals and convictions hitting an all time low, our pulpits are speaking of developing a better self-esteem and encouraging more tolerance. Preaching about sin is pretty much passé.

We live in unusual and interesting times. Never have things moved so fast around us. It took right at 5900 years for transportation to advance from animals to automobiles. In a 100 years man has achieved speed faster than sound, traveled to destinations as far as the moon and changed the English Bible over 200 times. In less than 50 years we have seen the most prosperous and advanced civilizations legalize murdering innocent babies, approve same sex marriages and strive to remove God and the Ten Commandments from our society. Man keeps contradicting himself.

One of the most familiar stories in scripture is the parable of the “Prodigal Son” in Luke 15. The word “prodigal” is man’s making, the scripture does not use it, but the word fits; he did waste some of his life. The story of the prodigal son is part of a parable, not a complete parable within itself. Luke said that Christ spoke a “parable (singular) unto them,” (Luke 15:3) which consisted of two other events.

We can only evaluate things by what we have read and by what we have experienced. From those two perspectives, it seems we may be living in the greatest time of magnified stupidity since Noah.

A wise man once said, “When a person who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he then ceases to be mistaken or he ceases to be honest.” James said something comparable:

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.” James 4:17

One more year closer to His coming! What a great year this has been. We have watched as the Father called some close friends home to glory. We have also watched as He decided to heal some because their job was not finished here. In both cases, we remember Abraham’s words “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?” (Genesis 18:25)

We all know that “last orders supersede all orders,” whether at home, on the job or in scripture. With that in mind lets see what “orders” the apostle to the Gentiles (Paul) gave to the church “which is His body” (Ephesians 1:22-23.) Paul’s last letter was 2 Timothy. The chronology of Paul’s letters are very important due to fact that “last orders supersede all orders.”

The greatest king of Israel said:

“The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. [2] The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. [3] They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Psalm 14:1-3

Centuries later, Paul echoed:

What is this thing called “love?”

One of the signs of the last days is “misplaced love.”

“This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves…” 2 Timothy 3:1-2.
