August 2013 As It Was In The Days of Lot
by Jeannie Kirkpatrick
As it was in the days of Lot,
How many righteous men will there be in this last day?
Genesis 18:24 “Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?”
- - - and Genesis 18:28 - 32
“Peradventure there shall lack five of the fifty righteous: wilt thou destroy all the city for lack of five? And He said, If I find there forty and five, I will not destroy it. And he spake unto him yet again, and said, Peradventure there shall be forty found there. And He said, I will not do it for forty’s sake. And he said unto him, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak: Peradventure there shall thirty be found there. And He said, I will not do it, if I find thirty there. And he said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord: Peradventure there shall be twenty found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake. And he said, Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak yet but this once: Peradventure ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.”
Notice the numbers mentioned are:
50 Holy Spirit and Freedom
50 - 5 Psalm 50:5 Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
40 Trials, tribulations and testings
30 Silver and redemption
10 God’s Divine Order
It is interesting to note that, the sum of first nine numbers placed in increasing or decreasing order,
123456789 and 987654321, gives the number 45 (50 - 5 above).
With that information, let’s look at the 9 one digit numbers:
9 God’s Judgment 8 New Beginnings 7 Spiritual perfection
6 The Number of Man 5 God’s Grace 4 Creation
3 Completion, whole 2 Witness 1 Beginning God
With these meanings, we, as Abraham, must ask ourselves:
Were there 50 inhabitants in Sodom who were filled with the Spirit of God?
Were there 45 inhabitants in Sodom who were willing to become a living sacrifice for God?
Were there 40 inhabitants of Sodom willing to be tested and tried to come into the image of God?
Were there 30 inhabitants of Sodom who were willing to become vessels of silver and redemption?
Were there 20 inhabitants of Sodom who were waiting for their redemption to draw nigh?
Were there 10 inhabitants of Sodom who were coming into God’s divine order?
What about 1 - 9?
Were there 9 who knew God was the God of judgment?
Were there 8 who had a new beginning in God?
Were there 7 who desired to come into God’s Spiritual perfection?
Were there 6 who knew that man is but grass?
Were there 5 who knew God’s unmerited favor and grace?
Were there 4 who desired to become God’s new creation?
Of the 4 in Lot’s family, his wife turned away
Were there 3 who desired to be complete and whole in God?
There were only 3 who escaped.
Were there only 2 who desired to be God’s witnesses in the earth?
Lot’s 2 daughters went about to bring forth life in the flesh.
That left only one who desired to return to the oneness he had in God in the beginning.
2 Peter 2:7 “And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:”
There was JUST ONE - - - just Lot - - - - not a lot, were there?
Become like Lot who was vexed with the filthy way of life in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah
“. . .Come out of her, My People, that ye be not partaker of her plagues. . .” Revelation 18:4b
As the days grow shorter and we prepare our hearts and lives for the coming day of judgment, we ask for your earnest prayers to fulfill the destiny that has been set before us for the past 24 years of New Foundations Ministries. Together we are seeing the fruit of our labors begin to come forth in the remnant of Spiritual Israel. We look forward to hearing from you and your drawing near unto the Lord and His Kingdom.
