Sodom & Egypt

The connections in the bible are spectacular and span many centuries.

“And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.”  Revelation 11:8

The two witnesses are killed in Jerusalem.  The only other mention of Sodom with Egypt is:

“Lot lifted up his eyes and saw all the valley of the Jordan, that it was well watered everywhere—this was before the Lord destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah—like the garden of the Lord, like the land of Egypt as you go to Zoar.”.  Genesis 13:10

Why is Jerusalem mystically called Sodom & Egypt?  Maybe here’s a link…

“It was the same as happened in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building; but on the day that Lot went out from Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all.  It will be just the same on the day that the Son of Man is revealed.”  Luke 17:28-30

We have strong links to Elijah’s ministry.  We have strong links to Lot and Sodom & Gomorrah.  Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem.   “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord.  He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.”  Malachi 4;5-6
