The Revelation about God’s Kingdom
Jesus reminded His disciples about
The days of Noah and the days of Lot.
The ark saved Noah and his family.
Fire and brimstone destroyed Sodom. Jesus
Encouraged the disciples to obey.
Here is David Steinberg’s routine about
Lot and his wife. As they were leaving Sod-
om and Gomorrah, the twin cities, Lot’s
Wife said, “Lot, what’s the matter with you? That
Was fun back there. How come you always do
What God tells you to do?” Lot responded,
“Dear, God told me to tell you to look back.”
Dick Smothers asked his brother Tommy, “If
Someone told you to jump off a bridge, would
You do it?” Tommy replied, “Not again.”
