We are now going to look at a story of Sodom and Gomorrah, when you read the Bible and you read the story of Sodom and Gomorrah the first thing you have to do is make a decision, there are choices you have to make and why you should not take the Bible literally, let’s look at some of the things you will encounter in the story:
- There is the question of God bargaining with man, you have to think is that feasible?
- You would have to question the sexual promiscuity of the entire city, the view that everybody in the city was sexual requires thought, and to say there were no virtuous people is a questionable viewpoint.
- You have a Man of God who tries to swap his daughters for sex to protect two Angels.
- Then you have the event of a woman turning into salt.
- Finally, you have the two daughters get their father drunk and rape him in a tent.
This is all summed up in this story the Holy Bible, the supposed infallible word of God.
The choices you have to make in approaching something as bizarre as this is to disregard the unacceptable portions of this and retain some. For the most part this is the way religion goes, or you can seek within the story a mysterious deep mystical meaning, as Moses Maimonides – Jewish Theologian, historian, Talmudist, philosopher and physician. 1135-1205 C.E. said this:
“Every time that you find in our books a tale the reality of which seems impossible, a story which is repugnant to both reason and common sense, then be sure that the tale contains a profound allegory veiling a deeply mysterious truth: and the greater the absurdity of the letter, the deeper the wisdom of the Spirit.”
And this story of Sodom and Gomorrah is repugnant to both reason and common sense.
To look at this story of this city, before we get into the city you have to look at the beginning of the story, you have to look at Abraham as he plays a part in this story before we get to the gates of the city and is involved with Lot, remembering we are choosing to see this story as an allegory, then this story is naming people and places with deep mystical and spiritual meaning that happens within you and me.
Genesis Chapter 18:1-2
And the LORD appeared unto him in the plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the heat of the day:
And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo, three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground,
The LORD appeared to Moses in the plains of Mamre, you have two words here, you have plains and Mamre, the word ‘plains’ in mysticism means – ‘confusion’, here is the interesting part, where did God appear, Memre, Memre means – ‘manliness’, in the confusion of your mind, in the confusion of your physical being, this is where God appeared, this is where God appears to all of us. There what happens? Three men stood by him. The number 3 here signifies that what is going to happen in this story as it continues is that there will be newness there is going to be a resurrection, there is going to be new life that comes out of all of this, the number 3 portrays that everywhere in the Bible. Notice that he lifts up his eyes and looked, and three men stood by him, he raised himself up, the important thing is that you have to see yourself as portrayed in this story to comprehend the deep truth otherwise it is not going to mean anything.
Sodom and Gomorrah or Sodom – is your basic desires the desires of the Lower Mind.
Lot – The person Lot represents your carnal mind, your carnal consciousness.
Lot’s Wife – Is your emotional nature, your emotions.
Lot’s Daughters – represent the desires of your Lower Mind.
Genesis Chapter 18:3-4
And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant:
Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree:
Here you have movement with God in this story, you have the introduction of the word water, which is the second stage of consciousness, it means – ‘truth’, it says wash your feet and rest yourself under the tree. So, you have:
Water–Which is truth.
Feet – Which is the part that touches the Lower.
Tree – Which is Life.
In all mystical tales this is the representative meaning of these subjects.
The revelation of purpose here is an interesting thing, what we are seeing here is the process of spiritual baptism, look what has happened here, ‘Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched, and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the tree’ – this is baptism:
Your encounter with ‘God’ has you touch water, which is the second stage of consciousness, the first stage of consciousness is Earth, the second is water, the feet being washed means you have separated yourself, you are no longer touching that that is the Lower, you have been purged of the thoughts from the Lower Mind, your feet are washed and you are sitting under the Tree of Life which is the inner tree which blossoms within you which is consciousness which is meditation. So, what has happened here is that in the centre of your confusion, that which is God makes an appearance in your consciousness, you are touched by water which is truth, you are separated from the Lower Mind and you are now sitting under the Tree of Life.
We are going to move to:
Genesis Chapter 18:16-17
And the men rose up from thence, and looked toward Sodom: and Abraham went with them to bring them on the way.
And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do:
‘Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do:’ – let us look where this merges in the New Testament.
Luke Chapter 10:21
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in Spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.
So, the revelation then is unto you it is given to know the secret of the Kingdom, to them that are without all these things are parables. So, here then the question is shall what is about to happen, shall the truth be hidden from you or shall it be revealed to you, what this is saying is it is up to you, you can comprehend these things or you can let it pass, most people try to figure out if it was an eruption of a volcano, if it was a meteor what destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, as Sodom and Gomorrah went the way of every city that has been created and disappeared they have all gone, every culture that has lasted like this culture will go.
But here the question is are you prepared to comprehend the truth or will you dwell on the outside in the confusion.
Let’s go to:
Genesis Chapter 18:22
And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham stood yet before the LORD.
Here is what is happening, they went towards Sodom, the word Sodom here is – ‘Fire’, the part of your Spirit that is represented by the two Angels are going to Sodom to purge that that is the passions of the lower flesh. The inner Spirit, the inner part of you is longing to rise up and to be part of God, that inner Spirit is always rising to go to take action against the lower to put down all the emotions that churn inside of you and have caused you all the problems, but something interesting here, it says but Abraham stood yet before the LORD. In another words the Abraham inside of you says I have to know, I have to find out, I have to comprehend what is going on, in another words Abraham was not content to let them go he had questions of God, as God questioned should I reveal what is going on, and Abraham here says yes you should, I have to know, Abraham which is you is saying I have to comprehend what is going on here or else this won’t make sense to me. This is the bargaining part, the virtue, the power of Abraham is going to bargain with God. This is you, and you have to understand.
And you are told all your life by the religious establishment. Don’t question anything.
Here then Abraham that part of you stands before God and asks what is this all about:
Genesis Chapter 18:23-33
And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
Only by drawing near, here is the interesting part about the bargaining that happens:
And Abraham drew near, and said, Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
Peradventure there be fifty righteous within the city: wilt thou also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are therein?
That be far from thee to do after this manner, to slay the righteous with the wicked: and that the righteous should be as the wicked, that be far from thee: Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the Lord, which am but dust and ashes:
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.
And the LORD went his way, as soon as he had left communing with Abraham: and Abraham returned unto his place.
Let us look at this spiritually and try to comprehend what we are looking at here. The allegory actually conveys to you something very important to your life – deliverance is what this really is, this is what is being conveyed here.
When there is something in you that begins to approach that narrow way towards God, there will be deliverance in your life, you call the shots, no God anywhere calls the shots, it is totally up to you, and you search and find the narrow pathway: you set foot on it, and there will be deliverance.
Here is the way it breaks down in the numerical code of what we are looking at:
First there was 50, 5+0 = 5, the five relates to the spiritualisation of the five senses, sight, smell, taste, touch, hearing, you have to comprehend the licence and liberty taken in allegory, so the number 5 becomes very important, and that is if I find that there is movement within the five senses there will be no destruction of life, there will be deliverance, that life will go on to prosper.
Then there was 45: 4+5=9, we come to the bridge between the senses and the fourfold nature of man, 9 is the mind, the consciousness of man, always 9, always throughout the Bible it is talking about the mind. Yes there will be deliverance of the human mind.
Then there was 40: 4+0=4, this is the fourfold nature of man, the physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional, if the Spirit is starting to awaken the fourfold nature there will be no destruction, there will be deliverance.
Then there was 30: 3+0=3, the appearance of new life, the coming forth from the carnal mind if the Spirit is coming from the new life there will be no destruction, there will be deliverance.
Then there was 20: 2+0=2, the number of the joining of the body and the Spirit even then if there was just that movement of body and Spirit is coming together there will be no destruction, there will be deliverance.
Then there was 10: 1+0=1, if there was just the movement of the presence of God within you there will be no destruction, there will be deliverance.
Maybe there is no movement in the senses, maybe there is no movement in the mind, and maybe there is not movement in the fourfold nature, maybe there is no sign of new life, maybe there is no joining of the body and Spirit, but if there was just a spark in you from God, you will be safe.
So, Sodom and Gomorrah is the place where we all dwell, Sodom and Gomorrah is the place of desire, even though the story goes on about a lot of sexual perversion, basically the story is about this. Jesus Christ is identified as the bridegroom, what happens here, when the Apostle Paul says “I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ” and Apostle Peter said “You may be born again from an incorruptible seed”. But Sodom and Gomorrah represents you turning away from intercoursing with the female Spirit, you are intercoursing with the male mind and the seed is spilling on the ground so then the perversion the act, the physical act carried out in life is dramatized this way, for what is necessary for the union and the birth to take place is that you present yourself as the chaste virgin in consciousness to be penetrated by the divine mind which is Christ, God and you give birth to the Christ Child and new life comes forth. The intercourse happens that way and it cannot be between the physical part of the mind to the mind. This has nothing to do with the male or female it is talking in allegorical terms.
That is what Sodom and Gomorrah means.
So, God’s purpose when we intercourse with the mind instead of the Spirit. God’s purpose is thwarted: he cannot give new life, the Christ within cannot be born as the seed is being spilled. There is no womb for the seed to nurture and go into new life.
Has nothing to do with male and female as much in that it represents the mind and the Spirit.
When you live in the desires of the Lower Mind you are living in Sodom and Gomorrah, when you refuse to enter the bridegroom’s chamber so that there may be a virgin birth you are living in Sodom and Gomorrah that is what this is all about.
Genesis Chapter 19:1
And there came two angels to Sodom at even: and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them: and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground:
Here Lot was at the gate, here is Lot, the word Lot is an interesting word as far as symbolism is concerned, the word Lot means – ‘veil’, he is not inside he is at the gate, Lot is you, Lot is me, we spend all of our life looking thought the veil, we have spent all our life not understanding the true meaning of this document, once you comprehend this you could do miraculous things, if you comprehend then beautiful things can start happening.
Here is Lot sitting at the gate of all of this perversion, not sexual perversion, get that out of your mind, being perverted means being focused on what life is not supposed to be instead of life as it should be. Look at the part where it says Lot sat at the gate:
Psalms Chapter 9:13
Have mercy upon me, O LORD: consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death:
As you sat at the gate of destruction, how many of us sat at the gate of our mind, your mind is Sodom and Gomorrah, how many of us sat at that gate with no idea of what is going to happen other then you know something is not right, then the two Angels came along, impulse came to speak to us to touch us then we started our move to escape.
So, Lot seeing the Angels, what did he do, he rose up to meet them, always rises up to meet them, we rise into higher realms of consciousness to meet them. Now see what he does, he bows his head towards the ground – meditation. When you have that impulse, when you have that thing that is starting to tug you away from the Sodom and Gomorrah of your soul the thing that you do is go into meditation, bowing your head to the ground, what you are doing is pulling down your intellect, you are subverting your own intelligence, you are putting down you own wisdom all of the things that were important to you, you are putting them down.
Genesis Chapter 19:2
And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay: but we will abide in the street all night.
Here once again we have that same baptism we talked about earlier, but they make as if No we don’t want to do that. What is being said here is that you have to invite this in, you have to bring the spiritual reality into you, and there no body anywhere which will have the Spirit force their way to you. It is up to your free will.
Then when you are making up your mind as to what you want to do and Lot is making his mind as to what he wants to do you have to realise the cost of what you have to pay, you have to count the cost, once you invite that essence into you, once you submit, once you open the door once that comes inside it is in. You will find your life will become very difficult once you let it in and you try to run in a different direction.
This experience of taking us from the lower mind to the higher mind take tremendous discipline.
Here then Lot invites the two Angels into the house:
Genesis Chapter 19:3
And he pressed upon them greatly: and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house: and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat.
Unleavened means – ‘nothing that is false’, unleavened bread does not raise, unleavened bread is pure, the reason the unleavened is important spiritually because it does not contain anything foreign, nothing is put into it that will change it, so they have this unleavened bread. Here now we have Lot, we have two Angels, and this unleavened bread which is actually you, you being body & soul being touched by the higher principles of God and eating the unleavened bread means you are now consuming truth which is unstained from anything of the outside, it is pure, it is divine.
This is all happening inside of you, it is happening in your mind.
Genesis Chapter 19:4
But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
What is happening now is that even though you are coming into this communion within yourself, you have risen up, you are beginning to touch the cosmic aspects, the divine aspects of your mind, the Spirit is beginning to move but suddenly the thoughts start coming at you from all different directions, that I what the men represent here.
Genesis Chapter 19:5
And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
Here you have now literally what is two Angels in the house and some men coming around asking for them so they can have some fun, the words ‘know them’ is ‘yada’ which means – ‘intercourse’. To have a sexual experience.
In fact what is being said here is that the lower aspects of your mind are reaching into you and saying that divine quality that you have inside is not to be consummated with the Spirit, bring it down and let it frolic with the mind. The mind is trying to come into this holy situation and pull back these impulses to itself and the mind will do that it will rip down the door and drag that divine down till it cascades down into the lower.
What is being said here is your lower fleshly impulses we must not allow this consummation of that higher part of you the divine, the seed must be spilled on the ground, your thoughts must not submit to Spirit you must submit to the lower mind.
That is what is being acted out in this drama.
So, why is it important then that these men so to speak pull these Angels out of your house, the mind does not allow the Angels to stay in your house, because a consummation of the relationship there would place you in the fulfilment of bridal and bridegroom exchange but it is not with the Christ.
2nd Corinthians Chapter 11:2
For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
To consummate with the Spirit, in this state you must present yourself as a chaste virgin, so the men outside, the lower thoughts are not allowed to break in to the holy place and pull these Angels these divine impulses out and spoil them.
Genesis Chapter 19:6
And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
When you pray and enter the room to meditate your house must be secure from the thoughts and attacks of the lower mind, he shut the door, Lot – ‘the veil’ – ‘the covering’, the protector will protect the holy place, he has shut the door, so what is being said is that nothing is allowed to enter the house the holy place where the Angels dwell. Nothing of mankind, nothing of religion, nothing of doctrine, nothing of tradition is allowed to enter the door and touch that where the Angels dwell.
And Angels are impulses of divine life in you.
Genesis Chapter 19:8
Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man: let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing: for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.
This is a man of God presenting his virgin daughters to compensate, he is saying I don’t care what you do to my two daughters, only unto these men don’t do anything, in another words, leave these two Angels alone but you can have your way with my daughters, and this is in the Bible, this is Lot, a man of God, so if you want to literalise this then that is how absurd this gets.
Now, I have two daughters, watch were we go with this – daughters are the desires that spring from the emotions, you have to put them on the altar of consciousness and allow them to be purged by the heavenly spirit which is within you, so you can be saved.
These are two virgins, they are pure, these are Godly desires, and these are emotions that spring from Gods Temple. The yearning for God, your mind must receive the virgin wisdom of God, your carnal can not enter the holy place, but the daughters your divine desires will be sent into you, you realise that that is of the mind cannot enter the holy place where the Angels dwell but those desires you now have for God will pour forth out into the street of your Lower Mind to set yourself free.
The virgin desires, the Godly beautiful desires will be let to enter the streets of your Lower Mind and there the intercourse will take place between the lower aspects of the mind and those which are the virgin aspects of the desires of the God part of your consciousness and what will be born out of that is the Christ Child.
Unto these men do not do anything, in my darkest time, see they came into my highest place into the divine aspects of the mind with God they are mine now, you cannot come in you cannot touch that, nobody can come into the temple of God, and the temple of God is within you, the house we are talking about is within you, no time can you bring one thought into the doors of that house, if you are in meditation you are thinking, but you are not in the holy place, you are visualising it but you are not in the holy place, when you are gone and where there is nothing is when you have entered into the holy place. All you can then do is send forth your daughters the virgins into the holy place, the virgin desires to sweep up that that is inside of you and that yearning to be free. When you get to the holy place, you will never know that you have been there because it is not you anymore you become Christ.
When you go to God you become God.
This is the point you have to understand, you will not send your daughters to the carnal mind until the love of God is dwelling in the holy place.
Genesis Chapter 19:9
And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.
What is this coming into your head? Those thoughts won’t let up, they want to break the door down, and they want to get to that holiness and drag them out. Do we comprehend what we are talking about, what is this place Sodom.
Revelation Chapter 11:8
And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
According to this part in the Bible the crucifixion happened in Sodom and Egypt, because the Sodom and Egypt is the basis for the physical desires and Egypt means – ‘the Lower Mind’. That is where the Lord has to be crucified, it is a spiritual representation, symbolic, and you don’t have to argue if Jesus Christ was physically crucified because you now know it happens in you, you experience it, he experiences it within me.
So, then it says in:
Genesis Chapter 19:10
But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door.
The Angels pulled Lot back into the room and shut the door, the thoughts of the carnal are shut, you cannot reason with your carnal thoughts, you cannot reason with people, you cannot reason with yourself, you have to slam the door shut and you have to occupy the place where the Angels dwell.
That is the anguish and torment that goes on within us. Lord let us pray and delivers us from evil, and God slams the door on the assault of the thoughts of evil.
Genesis Chapter 19:11
And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
See what happened here, they are blind, they cannot see, when you are inside dwelling in the house of meditation, the outside is blind:
John Chapter 9:39
And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see: and that they which see might be made blind.
Do you understand? Because you didn’t see, you have admitted, and you now can see, but those that say they can see are made blind, they cannot see, they are seeing with the eyes, they are not in meditation looking through the single eye, so here the same thing that that is blind comes against you.
2nd Corinthians Chapter 3:14-15
But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament: which vail is done away in Christ.
But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
They are looking at it literally and they are not seeing what you are reading about.
Let’s go back to:
Genesis Chapter 19:12
And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place:
Here is what the admonition of this story from God’s Angels is, you are living in the midst of all of this hell, take everything that is part of you and move out of this, get out of the city, get out of the carnal consciousness, take everything, leave the place, take no thought, enter into the holy place.
Genesis Chapter 19:13
For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD: and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.
Do you understand, this is Armageddon, it is always Armageddon, Armageddon is consciousness, because God sends a fire of spiritual revelation to destroy the old ways and the old traditions, the old fears, the old torments, the old guilt’s, to set you free. We will destroy this place it says, but now in:
Genesis Chapter 19:14
And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place: for the LORD will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.
See we have the husbands now, we have the male part of the lower mind, they are mocking the warnings, these are doctrines the dogmas they cannot comprehend spiritual things, you cannot talk to your friends, to you relatives because they do not comprehend the spiritual things we are discussing here.
1st Corinthians Chapter 1:19
For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.
When God speaks to you from within your mind will raise questions, it won’t seem right, it may be rejected, but look what happens:
Genesis Chapter 19:15
And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here: lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.
It is always when, the morning, because that is when the light comes into your life, the darkness is passed over, the screaming in the streets has passed over, the screaming in the mind has subdued, morning has come, there is this inner light, it is now yours, you hear God, you are awakened, you rise, you take your wife, you take your emotions, you take your Spirit, rise and take your daughters, take your desires, take your will, get out of this place. Separate from the unclean things, get out of this place where in the midst of all of this creaming in your life, and where are you to go?
It says in:
Genesis Chapter 19:16-17
And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters: the LORD being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city.
And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life: look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain: escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed.
Neither stay in the plain, the word plain as we have discussed means – ‘confusion’, do not stay in confusion, so where should you go, escape to the mountain, go to the mountain, whenever Jesus Christ was to do a miracle where did he go, to the mountain, here it is, your house is a shambles, the holy place has been set upon, escape, don’t stay, live, raise yourself up and take all that is yours and go up into the higher realm of consciousness, the mountain, to elevate to leave all that is the lower.
Genesis Chapter 19:18-20
And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord:
Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life: and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die:
Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, (is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live.
Here the fear of going to the mountain comes over you, even in this Bible written thousands of years ago they were afraid of going into the higher realms of consciousness, some evil will take me if I go to the mountain the thoughts of fear say.
And you rationalise, there is a city nearby, let me go there, in other words, I will start to go to prayer, I will sing hymns, anything but don’t send me to the mountain, I don’t want to get into this meditation stuff, what do you think?
Genesis Chapter 19:21-23
And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken.
Haste thee, escape thither: for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar.
The Sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar.
So, he entered this resting place from the carnal mind.
Genesis Chapter 19:24
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven:
And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.
All of this brimstone and fire is the Spirit raining down on the carnal consciousness. Lot’s wife representing the emotional nature, what does it do in each one of us, it turns it looks back, cannot help but turn, so Lots wife looks back and turns into a pillar of salt.
Finally the ascension towards the holy mountain has stopped the destructive desire of the ego and the emotions, desire is turned to a pillar of salt, in another words this which was the previous desires, the emotions that got you into such trouble becomes the very foundation of God in you and your life and is now preserved from evil, salt is a preservative.
Genesis Chapter 19:30
And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him: for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
Finally, he was obedient, he obeyed God’s word, and he dwelt in the cave, deep in the higher consciousness.
And in that cave is a bizarre ending to this story.
Genesis Chapter 19:31-32
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
The two daughters here portray a sexual encounter with their father by getting him drunk, and the literalists defend this apologetically in ignorance, this is in the Holy Book, the word of God.
Genesis Chapter 19:33-38
And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father: and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also: and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him: and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
And the firstborn bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.
Can you imagine such a thing, here God smites Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness and straight after his chosen man of God is doing the same, this from God’s holy people.
Offcourse this is not what is being talked about here, in allegory and spiritually.
The two daughters here, are still the desires which have now been elevated into the mountain, they are now higher spiritual desires, the wine that is given in the mountain is the new wine, which intoxicates, this is a deep spiritual representation of the lower mind is intoxicated when the higher consciousness is quickened, the intercourse takes place within yourself where your own daughters, your own spiritual desires now that they are on the mountaintop they intercourse with you and you become pregnant and you give forth which is the son, that which is the new mind, that which is new ideas, all is born new in you.
Moab means – ‘desirable land’, Benammi means – ‘son of my kindred’ or the ‘son of incest’, it is the birth that comes in the family of consciousness that is one, there is nothing on the outside, that is why it must be the inner Father, and the inner daughters together in the truth of three, a virgin birth.
So, from the carnal place of desire, from the corruption of evil. The Spirit of God slams the door on the mind, you are then racing with all that you have to the mountain top, there you are intoxicated by the new wine, and as you ascend into God’s holy mountain, you have a intercoursal experience with that that is the feminine principles within yourself and you give birth to new sons, new mind, new ideas, new ways, a place of the tenable land, the son of yourself, the son of your mind, the son of God, the Christ Child.
So, ends this tale of Sodom and Gomorrah.
