Perry Stone: The Prophetic Code of ‘The Days of Noah and Lot’ [WATCH]
I’m happy to share with you this P-H-E-N-O-M-E-N-A-L teaching by Perry Stone, “The Prophetic Code of the Days of Noah and Lot” shot in Israel from his Manna-Fest TV show. This teaching and others of his were instrumental in helping me compose my own book, The Days of Noah and Lot.
In fact, here’s an excerpt from my eBook which quotes this sermon series!
As if we haven’t already thoroughly discussed the perversions of Sodom and Gomorrah, there is yet another layer to address. And yes, we’re still talking about the “s-word”: sex.
For in those days the sons of men began to trespass against God, and to transgress the commandments which he had commanded to Adam, to be fruitful and multiply in the earth. And some of the sons of men caused their wives to drink a draught that would render them barren, in order that they might retain their figures and whereby their beautiful appearance might not fade. And when the sons of men caused some of their wives to drink, Zillah drank with them. And the child-bearing women appeared abominable in the sight of their husbands as widows, whilst their husbands lived, for to the barren ones only they were attached. (Book of Jasher 3:19-22)
This seems outrageous to us, yet in light of all the other acts of outrage, this actually seems minor. Only, it isn’t. That’s just the desensitization to perversion speaking. I would, perhaps, find this passage from the Book of Jasher hard to believe had I read it before hearing Perry Stone mention a historical fact that corroborates the Book of Jasher’s claim. In his Manna-Fest teaching “The Prophetic Code of Noah and Lot, Part 1” from Israel, he displays a “fruit” called the Apple of Sodom.
“Most of you in the United States have never seen this particular fruit. Now, it’s not actually a fruit; it looks like a fruit. If you look at it and think it’s a fruit, you’d be very deceived… This is called the Apple of Sodom. And when you press [it], it actually feels like a balloon with air in it. However, there’s two things about this that are interesting: It grows right off of the edge of the Dead Sea here in Israel and there’s all sorts of plants that have this particular item on it. And when you look at this, it looks very simple, very innocent. However, as this begins to dry up, the Bedouins would take the inside of this and they could use it to light fires. And remember, Sodom was destroyed by fire.
The second thing that makes this interesting is a white liquid that is on the inside of it. If a girl were to become pregnant years ago, they would give her this to drink and it’s a poison, and it actually aborts the baby. Isn’t that amazing? Called the Apple of Sodom, right here in Israel. A very unusual object that grows on a plant here on the edge of the Dead Sea.”
This action, like homosexuality, is in direct contrast with the purpose of marriage and sexual intercourse. Now, of course, the foremost purpose of sex in marriage is for the pleasure and enjoyment of the husband and wife of each other. Sex is to marriage as worship is to our relationship with God. It is also a phenomenal bonding agent, creating a godly soul tie, that can help the couple to weather tough times in their marriage without feeling or succumbing to the urge of flight. That said, the natural product of that sexual intimacy should be children.
People, some in mockery, some in earnest, ask “What about barren couples? They can’t have kids.” To that I say, barrenness is the exception and not the rule; it is not the will of God. A barren couple, through supernatural or medical means may be blessed to conceive a child. They could perhaps employ a surrogate to incubate their fertilized egg. But God will NEVER bless a homosexual or lesbian couple to produce children because it is against nature. Also, a barren couple, while they cannot be fruitful and multiply in a biological sense, may still fulfill the other purposes of the Lord in marriage. They may still have a wholly godly marriage without children. In fact, the three most famous barren women in Scripture--Rachel,Hannah, and Elizabeth--were deeply loved and cared for by their respective husbands--Jacob, Elkanah, and Zechariah. They loved their wives regardless of whether or not they ever gave them children. Yet scripturally speaking, barrenness is a curse, not a blessing; children are a blessing. (Chapter V: Exchanging the Natural Use of the Woman)
