 From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Sodom and Gomorrah (/ˈsɒd.əm/;[1] /ɡə.ˈmɔr.ə/[2]) were cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis[3] and throughout the Hebrew Bible,[4] the New Testament and in the deuterocanonical Book of Wisdom, as well as in the Qur’an and hadith.[5]

According to the Torah, the kingdoms of Sodom and Gomorrah were allied with the cities of Admah, Zeboim and Bela. These five cities, also known as the “cities of the plain”, were situated on the Jordan River plain in the southern region of the land of Canaan. The plain, which corresponds to the area just north of the modern-day Dead Sea,[6] was compared to the Garden of Eden[Gen.13:10] as being a land well-watered and green, suitable for grazing livestock.

Divine judgment by God was then passed upon Sodom and Gomorrah and two neighboring cities, which were completely consumed by fire and brimstone. Neighboring Zoar (Bela) was the only city to be spared. In Abrahamic religions, Sodom and Gomorrah have become synonymous with impenitent sin, and their fall with a proverbial manifestation of divine retribution.[7][8][Jude 1:7] Sodom and Gomorrah have been used as metaphors for vice and homosexuality viewed as a deviation. The story has therefore given rise to words in several languages, including the English word sodomy, used in sodomy laws to describe a sexual “crime against nature” consisting of anal or oral sex, either homosexual or heterosexual, or sexual activity between a person and a non-human animal (bestiality).[9] Some Islamic societies incorporate punishments associated with Sodom and Gomorrah into sharia.[10]

The historicity of Sodom and Gomorrah is still in dispute by archaeologists, as little archaeological evidence has ever been found in the regions where they were supposedly situated.


 

Again as Wikipedia details “little archaeological evidence has ever been found in the regions where they were supposedly situated”, that is until Ron Wyatt, his family and his team discovered: the archaeological evidence of fire and brimstone confirming the historicity of the two cities. In reviewing Ron’s Official website regarding the discovery we find:

The Bible tells us that Sodom and Gomorrah and all the plain was destroyed due to the wickedness of the people there. In the early 1980’s Ron Wyatt noticed the strange appearance of some “formations” as he passed along the shores of the Dead Sea. They looked to him like city walls and buildings, only whitish in color. For many years, he did nothing about his suspicions but in 1989, Ron discovered something that convinced him that these whitish colored formations weren’t just geological formations, but were actually the remains of Sodom and Gomorrah.

I encourage you to visit the official source of all information concerning discoveries of Ron Wyatt at Wyatt Museum because there are a lot of sites out there that try to debunk Ron’s discoveries, calling him a fraud.  I don’t believe this to be the case. Satan’s workers are on overtime just now against those doing the work of God.

The information that Ron shared – brightened up my days. Why? Probably because it re-affirms my belief in God.  I don’t believe in God because of Ron.  How did I come across Ron’s discoveries – via Pinterest. Which I believe to be an intentional mishap. That pin led to you-tube and the videos and Ron’s discoveries. So I will share Ron’s work  and I encourage you to share this with your family and friends. God Bless.
