Do you believe that ?  Some people do not !  They don't like such "scary" statements.  They tell us that it really doesn't mean what it says, God doesn't burn anyone up !  God doesn't kill ! God doesn't destroy !  They tell us the  Bible must not be taken just as it reads we must re-interpret it !  Well. The Bible says in :  Hebrews 12:29  "For our God is a consuming fire." 

And how about this one: Isaiah 33:14 

"The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire ? who among us shall dwell with everlasting
?" Isaiah then answers the question in the next verse:

Isaiah 33:15  "He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands
from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;.."

But, if we love God and keep His Commandments will we be consumed ?  No, the fire of God consumes sin. So then; if we refuse to  stop sinning, the glory of God will consume us with the sin !  Here is a statement that makes it so clear:


"If you cling to self, refusing to yield your will to God, you are choosing death. To sin, wherever found, God is a consuming fire. If you choose sin, and refuse to separate from it, the presence of God, which consumes sin, must consume you."

 Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing

Page 62


Dear Friends, there is only one way that God can purify His universe from the plague of sin and that is by the means of: 

The Bible clearly teaches that there is no "hell fire" burning now, but that it will come at the end of the 1000 years when the Holy City decends upon the Mount of Olives and all the wicked dead are raised for the "execution" of the final judgment.

But, do we have an event recorded in Scripture where God used, "everlasting fire" to destroy the wicked ?

Jude1:7  "Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire."

Peter tells us what remains of these cities of the plain:

 2 Peter 2:6  "And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly;"

The location of Sodom and Gomorrah have been positively found today and all that remains is ashes, but in  very revealing formations !

 The Bible tells us that The Lord sent  "fire and brimstone" upon these cities.  "Brimstone" is "sulphur. What we see in this photo is easily seen to be city walls and the whole site is a pile of ashes still showing the shapes of the walls and even windows are seen !  This picture was taken by Ron Wyatt who was the first one to realize what he was seeing after having passed by this site about 30 times on the highway ! He also discovered these balls of sulphur in the ashes:     

 Now, Demetrius Leach, Kevin Straub and Company, tell us that God did not destroy Sodom & Gommorah, but that things just got out of God's control and it was just an act of nature going wild and God had nothing to do with it !  They don't even give The Devil credit for this event and at least they have that right, Satan didn't do it ! We do know that Satan does destroy when God withdraws His protection such as in the case of Job, but even there God placed a limit on his actions ! 

Most remember the last days of Sodom as recorded in the Scripture. One day Abraham had three visitors whom He recognized as two Angels and Christ.  Lets read some of the account. 

Genesis 18: 1

"And the Lord appeared unto him"...

Christ came to visit Abraham and Abraham knew it was Christ as the narrative continues...

Genesis 19; 24 "Then The Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gommorah brimstone and fire from The Lord out of heaven"...

came out of heaven from God as soon as Lot and his two daughters were at a safe distance from Sodom ! Ron Wyatt has actually collected some of these sulphur balls and set them on fire and they burn with a blue flame showing the intense heat that they produce ! Hence the "blue flame in our animation above !

Peter tells us that it was ,

that destroyed Sodom and Gommorah and it was an "example" of the fire that will destroy all the wicked and all the buildings, cars, boats, weapons and everything on the old earth at the end of the 1000 years to purify the earth for the New Kingdom of God ! 

 God was in complete control of that fire and it fell specifically on five cities not just Sodom and Gomorrah and the ashes are there to prove it !  The fire and brimstone did not fall outside the cities but only directly on the cities, which, proves that it was not "out of God's control" as Demetrius and Kevin would have us believe ! God does destroy when wickedness reaches a limit which He has set !

These men are changing the Scripture completely to support their false teaching !  Suddenly after all the centuries of Christians believing and teaching that God destroyed Sodom and these other cities with everlasting fire just as the Bible says, Demetrius & Kevin say, "Oh'no, God doesn't kill, nature just got out of God's control" !  But The Spirt of God says:

 "The Lord hath opened His armoury, and hath brought forth the weapons of His indignation." Jer. 50:25. 

     "At His own will God summons the forces of nature to overthrow the might of His enemies

 "At His own will God summons the forces of nature to overthrow the might of His enemies, -"fire, and hail; snow, and vapours; stormy wind fulfilling His Word." Psalm 148:8.

 "Nature out of the control of God" says Demetrius & Kevin !

How could nature get "out of the control" of God ? It never has happened and never will happen.  First: God would have to speak to nature saying "OK, you are on your own"; but then, help us ! If God turned nature loose, but He doesn't control nature, then; who is going to stop nature when it gets out of God's "control" ?

 Now Friends; got your thinking cap on ? Could nature go wild without God's permission ?  Well, if that were the case then; good bye planet earth ! Do you see that   It is only because God is in absolute control of nature, that we are still alive today !  God must and does control nature every moment of every day 365 days of the year and has done so since creation !  If God let nature go wild to destroy   Sodom and Gomorrah, then God had to stop nature gone wild at some point, and since the fire went out, and Sodom and the other cities are a pile of ashes,  while the desert and other cities were not consumed,  then God stopped nature from  doing further destruction which means that God controls nature ! 

Destroyed Sodom and the "cities of the plain" and God personally commanded the fire to destroy ! 

We say it again; we love Demetrius and Kevin and their families and those others who are teaching this terrible lie about God's character; but we abhor the deception that is being brought upon those who listen to their twisting of Scripture  and The Testimonies of Jesus ! 

We will continue this discussion in Part Two on another page when we will look at who or what brought the destruction of the people by the flood in Noah's time !

 In His Love,
