This ‘will indeed be the last thing we ever do in our current form’

Just days ago, Christian Today ran a news article with its headline splashing, “The scientific meltdown over a controversial discovery of ‘biblical Sodom,'” as it probed the possibility the infamous biblical city destroyed by God for its wickedness was, in fact, discovered by archaeologists in Israel.
“What everyone agrees on is that something unusual happened at Tall el-Hammam, an ancient settlement near the Dead Sea,” the report noted.
“In a layer of ancient earth, archaeologists claim to have found evidence of an apocalyptic event: Melted rooftops. Disintegrated pottery. Unusual patterns in the rock formations that can be associated with intense heat.”
Now, an author opening people’s eyes to the hidden content of the Bible says the entire story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is actually a real-life parable broadcasting much more than the historical event.
“Yes, the divine demolition of these ancient cities actually took place, but when we dig just a little deeper in Scripture, there are astonishing messages being broadcast on an additional level for us today,” says Joe Kovacs, author of the brand-new book, “Reaching God Speed: Unlocking the Secret Broadcast Revealing the Mystery of Everything.”
Kovacs says the first key to unlocking the mysterious messages is to understand the meanings of the place names.
“All of these definitions hold true as both of these words directly represent this evil world of the flesh in which we all dwell right now. We live in a large assembly of fearful people who often act like tyrants toward each other, firing all sorts of arrows in the form of harmful words and actions at each other. It’s the place where fierce heat and pressure are put on all of us, and those who don’t repent and keep engaging in such wickedness will end up in a flaming place the Bible calls Gehenna fire, also known as the second death.”
Genesis 18:20 specifically mentions how wicked the activities of these cities had become, both then and now: “Then the LORD said, ‘The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is immense, and their sin is extremely serious.'”
The New Testament notes that God “reduced the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes and condemned them to extinction, making them an example of what is coming to the ungodly” (2 Peter 2:6 CSB).
“Likewise, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns committed sexual immorality and perversions, and serve as an example by undergoing the punishment of eternal fire” (Jude 1:7 CSB). “Thus,” says Kovacs, “Sodom and Gomorrah, on the Spirit or parable level, represent the world, both the ancient evil world and today’s wicked world.” After the citizens of Sodom tried to sexually assault two angels of God who were appearing in the form of men, the angels pressed Abraham’s nephew, Lot, to remove his loved ones from the city.
