In Genesis chapter 18, Yehovah and two of His angels appeared to Abraham in the Plains of Mamre, in the year 2019 BC. It was when Abraham was 99 years old, and one year before his son Isaac was born. Upon departing, Yehovah told Abraham that He was going to inquire against Sodom and Gomorrah, because their sin was very grievous. Abraham was able to get the Lord to agree to spare the cities if just ten righteous people could be found there. Abraham was afraid that his nephew Lot would be caught in the destruction.
After the two arc-angels (they had no wings) came to the city and walked to Lot’s house, the (perverted) men of the city who saw them wanted to make the visitors their lovers. The evil men had not ever done harm to Lot because he was “a celebrity”. His uncle, Abraham, had saved the city about thirteen years earlier (Genesis 14). Since Lot was given a house for his family, he dwelt in the city, and the homosexuals left him alone.
However, when Lot tried to protect the angels, the perverts were going to molest Lot also when the angels blinded all the inhabitants near the house. Lot was told to get any relatives he had in the city and flee to the mountains, out of the plain. Lot had two daughters which had apparently married two decent men, but their husbands refused to leave Sodom. So Lot took his wife and two younger daughters, which were yet in his house, and went to the city of Zoar. Adding up the household of Lot, and his two sons in law, there were only eight people which were righteous in the city of Sodom, being two short of the required ten.

Take note in reading Genesis 19:23-30, that while traveling to Zoar, on their way to safety, Lot’s wife looked back at Sodom, and turned into a pillar of salt. Therefore, the family was yet in the (valley of the) plain, where Admah, Zeboiim, and Zoar of the five cites were. The other two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah, apparently were at a higher level. What I’m getting at is the Dead (Salt) Sea is now where the plain was, also called the vale of Siddim, and has been made salty because of Lot’s wife. She was turned into a very, very powerful saline compound.
Why the history lesson? Because Yeshua said “Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed”, Luke 17:30. Jesus was saying that as it was in Sodom and Gomorrah, so shall it be like when He returns. Yet He also specifically said, “And as it was in the days of Noe (Noah), so shall it be also in the days of (the coming of) the Son of man”, Luke 17:26.
The evil, such as homosexuality, adultery, bestiality, child sacrifice and animal worship, is about all we know of what was going on in Sodom and Gomorrah. I suspect that about all evil that is going on today which we can imagine, even in “so called” advanced (enlightened) societies, was also going on then. But what do we now know of the evils of Noah’s day, which caused worldwide judgment?
Looking back at Genesis chapter six, we read that “the sons of God” married females of modern mankind. Much of theology has said that those “sons of God” were fallen angels that fathered giant children. However, that is wrong. Angels do not have reproductive organs, and are neither male nor female, but look like male humanoids (Mark 12:25). So who were the “sons of God” that Moses was referring to?
In the book of Job, in chapters one and two, theologians don’t consider the “sons of God” to be fallen angels. So why do they think the ones in Genesis are angels? It is because of gross ignorance of Genesis. They are the same sort of entities in both sets of passages. There were, and have been, remnants of prehistoric mankind that yet live in the hollow Earth. That is why Satan was able to join them. The gathering was in the hollow Earth, and not in Heaven, where Satan no longer has access. Satan’s reply to the Lord was “walking up and down in it”.
Yehovah created our universe to be the habitation of mankind. The problem is, that God has had to restore mankind on the Earth five times, after first creating him in the beginning, about 4.6 billion years ago according to science. Satan has tried to destroy mankind each era that mankind has been on the Earth since the war in Heaven ended, in about 245 Million BC. Each epoch of mankind, before Adam and Eve, had at least hundreds of thousands of Earth years to advance in knowledge and technology.
The first two eras had millions of years of advancement. They did not do so as rapidly as modern mankind, because there was no constrains of time. They were immortal, because they were not born in sin, therefore there wasn’t any natural death, or aging beyond thirty. There was no hurry to do anything. But they did venture out into space, as NASA has discovered bases on Mars and on the back side of the Moon. However, the question is, are any of them evil? The answer is “yes”, because at least on one occasion, previous mankind ended his existence with war, both on Earth and on Mars, using advanced weapons of mass destruction.

If a segment of prehistoric mankind was greater or larger in stature, such as in the era of the dinosaurs, would that account for their offspring by modern day females (before the flood of Noah in 2611 BC) becoming giants as compared to the rest of modern mankind? This was crossbreeding, which probably caused a lot of problems for mankind. Just as God didn’t stop Abraham from impregnating Hagar to have his first child, God didn’t stop prehistoric man from breeding with modern man. So that brings up the question, what evil was manifested so that it led to modern mankind’s near complete destruction?
Perhaps along with the same evil that was in Sodom, Gomorrah, and the other cities of the plain, maybe there was additional evil which grew out of a mixed or contending societies of which we can only imagine…, which brings me to my next point. The planet named Nibiru is supposed to be coming.
More concerning this in chapter two.
