Sodom

Additional Links

This city is used by the Holy Spirit to describe the nation of Israel, and also the city of Jerusalem. This city was filled with wickedness, lust and evil of every sort. It was so vile that GOD destroyed it by fire. Israel and the city of Jerusalem took on the sins of Sodom and practiced their evil ways so that GOD used that name as a description of the places where His people lived, and of the people themselves. (See Ezekiel 16:48; Romans 9:29; Revelation 11:8).
