Is this the future of Las Vegas (… or name your city)?

First, I know this is a cheap shot at “Sin City.” There are plenty of good people in Las Vegas, San Francisco, and most other places we might name. Pompeii seems to have brought destruction upon itself, and we all need to avoid living in a way that calls for something like what happened there.

Pompeii: New find shows man crushed trying to flee eruption

Associated Press • May 29, 2018

…Pompeii officials on Tuesday released a photograph showing the skeleton protruding from beneath a large block of stone that may have been a door jamb that had been “violently thrown by the volcanic cloud.”

Was the destruction of Pompeii an example of God’s wrath? If so then what cities should be worried in this era?

  1. well,as far as I know,Lost Wages isn’t a particularly “volcanicallly-charged” area,so that’s not a risk. Too far from any oceans,so a flood isn’t likely….I suppose they COULD be flooded with Liberals and Illegals from California-no,that’s already happening….

  2. Given earthquakes and volcanoes of today combined with human behavior, it is not unreasonable. It could also have been an early Mafia hit.

    Lots of cities should be worried in this era.

    But in the USA, my Top 3 picks (in alphabetical order) would be:

    New York City

    San Francisco

    Washington, D.C.

    • Well, its a tough call, there are so many choices. I could add ten to your list without batting an eye. I’ve already said that I think D.C. should just get a fence around it and declare it a federal prison.

        Oh, yeah, Lophatt, my list could very, very easily be expanded. But if God were going to restrict Himself to striking just three (which, of course, is just my arbitrarily chosen number), my educated guesstimate is that, for various reasons, THOSE 3 would probably be most endangered.

        But, let’s face it, as God’s Word says: The WHOLE WORLD lies under the sway of the wicked one.

    • @HenryMakow just had a Guest article, a native of Los Angeles, describing what LA is like now under “Marxist Rule” & its “ever so lovely” outcomes:

      Even so, the guy says he’ll stay because he likes living where everything is close-by so he can walk everywhere, plus he says LA still has a great supply of organic food, etc.

        TPR, thanks for the article link! (You meant it for me, yes?)

        One complaint: Nowhere in the article did I see the words “Communist” & “Communism”. Anybody who doesn’t realize that ALL OF THAT is the result of Illuminati-inspired Communistic ideology and methodology is missing the key element. (Maybe he knows and egregiously neglected to mention it when discussing the politicians he named.)

        You probably don’t know this, but I found it particularly of interest because I was born and raised in Los Angeles and still have friends and family there. (Obviously, none of them are as intelligent as I am or they would have left, also. 🙂 )

        I haven’t been back to visit in awhile (there was no subway system in MY L.A.!), but according to that article, it’s a lot worse now than when I’d reached my “Fed-Up Point”.

        I left there the first time in late 1992, saying, “God is dead in L.A.” and moving to Arizona. God sent me back to L.A. in March of 1994, only so that I would have my first encounter with Jesus one month later in the very city where I had said a thousand times that “God is dead”. (God the Father and Jesus Christ, His Son, have the BEST, most creative and ironic sense of humor ever!)

        After being baptized by Christ Yeshua in an apartment in L.A., I returned to Arizona the following year.

        L.A. would certainly make my list, along with Chicago, if I were going to expand it a little beyond the three cities I mentioned above.

        The following, in that guy’s article that you linked me to, made me literally laugh-out-loud:

        >>… “However, California does remain one of the few states where raw milk is legal. Here, I can get raw milk and raw butter from grass-fed cows, along with grass-fed meat. The health benefits of those items are too numerous to list here. In Los Angeles, I have access to any type of organic produce I want, and I can find practitioners of any health regimen you can name, from reiki to oxygen therapy to everything in between.”

        He remains in that s#!thole for the raw milk, raw butter, organic produce, reiki, and oxygen therapy? GOL!!

        He should just try God and establish a reAlationship with Jesus Christ instead. Sheesh! Too funny!!

  5. It looks to me like staging Country-Western music events may be their undoing. Mossad hates C&W.

    Actually, Las Vegas doesn’t really belong in Nevada. Only in Las Vegas would you be able to open fire on somebody without finding yourself at the bottom of a ventilation shaft.

    Still, if its Sodom and Gomorra time for Las Vegas I couldn’t think of a better place. That would be a fitting end to a filthy place.

  6. I lived in Las Vegas several years. It is no more sinful than any other city where I’ve lived. At least they’re up-front about their vices and wares, unlike DC, L.A., Chiraq, NYC, etc., each teeming with underground sin, crime and immorality. Stay off The Strip, an entity in itself, and you will see that there are many decent, honest, hard-working people in Vegas just making ends meet and raising their kids.

    • To me it isn’t about the people of Las Vegas. I’ve been there several times. I know people who live there too. My aunt lived in Reno when there were no Indian casinos and Reno was the “hot spot”. People who lived there almost never went to the clubs.

      Everyone is free to feel how they fell about it. That is becoming an “intolerable position” lately, but its mine. I know it creates jobs. It also creates a LOT of sin.

      If it burned to the ground tomorrow I’d feel sorry for the people’s loss of income. I would not mourn its passing. It is the quintessential symbol of excess and bad taste.

      I don’t happen to believe that “economics” justifies disgusting behavior and wasteful excess. None of my remarks were aimed at people living there simply because they live there.

  10. Pompeii? New Orleans had Katrina. Voodoo, witchcraft, homosexaulity paraded anually during Marde Gras which is drunken revelry. I do not expect Katrina is the last hurricane for New Orleans. With all that and so much of the city below sea level it does not make sense that anyone would choose to live there but many of those people have already moved to Houston and other cities.

  12. Traildust, you must have read my mind! I’ve always wondered if Pompeii was destroyed along the lines of Sodom and Gomorrah. The destruction was so utter and complete, I felt like that was the case. Before I read this article, I was reading the one about pedophilia and thinking how Pompeii’s devastating end is what these monsters who prey on children are bringing on themselves. God destroys civilizations who practice such things.

  13. I’ll be the “odd one out” here & say that I do not (personally) believe God is destroying anything these days, nor that He is causing disasters to strike any cities… because…

    That would be contrary to His desire that the Gospel of Grace be preached to all creation (that Christ died for everyone’s sins, that He was buried, & that He rose again the third day: 1st Cor. 15:1-4).

    Since we are still living during that “administration” (“dispensation”) of Grace timeframe, it would be hypocritical of the Lord to go smacking down entire cities when what He wants is for individuals in those cities to be saved under His total-free-saving-grace-price-already-paid-in-full-for-every-vile-sin-under-the-sun.

    Whenever the administration of His Grace period is complete (& only God knows when), then He will turn His attention back to not only the Gentile world that rejected His Free Gift, but also to unbelieving Israelites (wherever they may be & not necessarily only in the area of modern Israel) & during THAT timeframe He will deal with all those people under Law, not Grace, & large scale “punishments” of cities &/or peoples may begin.

    Law & Grace ran parallel to each other for a few decades during the Acts period (Paul was preaching Grace to the Gentiles yet the Jewish believers were still living through a Law mindset, Temple attendance, etc., as is evident by the letters of Peter, James, John, the “pillars” of the Jerusalem Jewish believers; Jude, too). In Acts 15 at the “counsel,” it was agreed that the “pillars” would continue to preach to the “circumcision” & Paul & Barnabas to the “uncircumcision”).

    In Acts 28, Paul presented the Grace-through-Christ gospel for the last time to the Jewish religious leaders & stated from thenceforth that the Grace Gospel would go unto the Gentiles & that “they WILL HEAR IT”!

    That was approx. 66 AD while Paul was in prison in Rome. He was martyred approx. two years thereafter or circa 68 AD. Then the Romans destroyed the Temple in 70 AD (“Your house will be abandoned to you,” per Christ’s prophecy/warning approx. 40 years earlier).

    Then Mt. Vesuvius erupted in Pompeii (near Naples, Italy) in 79 AD which would have been approx. a dozen+ years AFTER Paul proclaimed that the Gentiles (& no longer Israelites) would be the focus of God’s desire for the preaching-of-Grace message to them.

    It’s a “close call” by a dozen years or so. Maybe Pompeii was “on the cusp” of the Grace Gospel being sent out to the Gentile World at Large & God wanted a “clean [Gentile] slate first” so He wiped them out(?) (Pompeii is only 152 miles from Rome).

    But, ehhh, I don’t think so because once a God-truth was stated by one of his prophets or Apostles, like Paul in Acts 28, it became an instant truth. So from that point (circa 66 AD), the Lord’s then-sole focus & desire was the salvation of Gentiles everywhere, including those at Pompeii.

    Maybe it was the Devil who wanted them all dead-in-their-sins so they would NOT hear the Gospel. (We know from Job that the Devil can create storms, though I don’t know if he can create earthquakes & cause volcanos to erupt!)

    So that’s my thoughts on that; & as far as “modern prophecies” of God’s destruction of this & that, I don’t believe any of those people any more (TBN-type “prophets”). They have proclaimed SO MANY such things for decades & none of it ever happens. They are full of it. I call them “chirpers” (biblically, heretics & pagans who would “chirp” incantations to their false gods/devils). No offense to anyone here!

    If anything they say ever really occurs, before believing it was “from God,” I would check that “prophet’s” connections to the Judeo-Masonic “DeepState.”

    • “But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.”

      –Romans 5:20 (but entire chapter is a good read.)

      ===
      After sharing descriptions of the NT Greek words for “abound” & “much more abound,” this writer says Romans 5:20 could read like so:

      “For wherever sin exists in abundance and is multiplying and constantly expanding, that is precisely the time and place where grace is poured out in a far greater, surpassing quantity”:

  15. Unlike many, I had actually visited the ruins of Pompeii, seeing the poignant silhouettes of people and family pets seared into stone, and bodies instantly entombed in volcanic ash.

    The town of Pompeii was at the base of Mount Vesuvius, an active volcano regarded as one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the world. Why is it so difficult for so many to regard the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79 (which released a hundred thousand times the thermal energy released by the Hiroshima-Nagasaki bombings) and the resultant destruction of Pompeii and another city, Herculaneum, as a NATURAL DISASTER, instead of God’s punishment on Pompeii? There was nothing uniquely decadent about Pompeii’s culture and people.

    • The Lord is merciful. I believe the Lord sends prophets or witnesses to a place before it is destroyed. Noah was a witness to that wicked generation before the Flood came. Scripture doesn’t tell us of any prophet sent to Sodom and Gomorrah before it was destroyed. Scripture tells us that Lot was vexed by the filthy conversation of the wicked (II Peter 2:7). My guess is that the wicked were vexed by the righteousness of Lot, so Lot was a witness to that wicked city. Also, Abraham interceded for Sodom and Gomorrah, but to no avail.

      I don’t know of any prophets being sent to Pompeii before 79 AD. When Lisbon was destroyed by an earthquake in 1755, John Wesley said it was the wrath of God. Before the Lord destroyed St. Pierre, Martinique in 1902, the Lord sent a Catholic priest to warn that island of its wickedness (https://hitchhikeamerica.wordpress.com/2015/05/14/the-eruption-of-mount-pelee-st-pierre-martinique-1902/). I had a dream about a Las Vegas earthquake in 2006, so I believe it will happen in the future.

      Some members of Operation Save America did some street preaching in Jackson, Wyoming back in 2011 and 2012; they also protested outside of an abortion clinic. They have protested outside abortion clinics all over the United States; they said that they received more hate speech in Jackson than in any other place in the nation. The Jackson, Wyoming Fire of 2012 was definitely a warning from the Lord.

  16. I thought God told those of the wrath that was coming: Sodom & Gomorrah the Arch with Noah . I would think he would give those who would turn a chance to do so before his wrath came down, but I might be wrong about that.
