6-Week Series: Against All Odds


Summary: God will judge the wicked and spare the righteous because even in judgment he can be trusted to do what is absolutely right.

Genesis 18:16-33

June 1, 2003

This morning we have a conversation unlike any other conversation ever recorded.

1. God reveals his intentions to Abraham 18:16-21

a. The basis for God’s revelation 18:16-19

b. The revelation 18:20-21

2. Abraham pleads for the righteous of Sodom 18:22-33

The Point

The wickedness of Sodom?

The intercession of Abraham?

NO - verses 24-25 Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

2 Peter 2:6 if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;

7 and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men

8 (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--

9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
