God spoke to Abraham about Sodom because he took his responsibility as a Father seriously and did things in the way of the LORD.
God literally showed him what He was going to do before He did it, because He knew that he had a Father’s heart and by knowing that, God also knew that He could depend on him to intercede for Sodom and Gomorrah! And, by this, He also called Abraham, His friend!
God is looking for Father’s right now, who have His heart for those who are about to perish and He starts by looking for those whom He can trust with their own children, to be strong and correct them, and yet do it in a way that they know that it is because they love them.
God will speak to these fathers about the fate of Nations!
Not only that, He will give them time to intercede for their families and give them warnings to get them out of what is happening in the earth!
Abraham planted a seed for being the father of many nations by being the good father to his children! He trusted God, did right when He told him how to raise them, correct them, and love and protect them. So therefore, God trusted Abraham.
“And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham that thing which I do; Seeing that Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him?
For I know him, that he will command his children and his household after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment; that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which he hath spoken of him.
And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.
And the men turned their faces from thence, and went toward Sodom: but Abraham yet stood before the LORD.
And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which lot dwelt,” Genesis 18:17-22,29.
God is saying, “I AM looking for a few good men! I AM looking for those like Abraham who will obey me and raise up a generation who will obey me!
I AM looking for fathers who are men’s men in this hour, who will not shirk their responsibilities, but will stand up and be all that I have called them to in this hour!
Those who will truly represent my heart it is time to arise you men of God and take your place and use the authority and dominion that I have given you in the earth.
All creation is awaiting the son’s of the most high god to bring stability into their homes and their cities and their countries.
I AM looking for those who will stand before me like father Abraham, with hearts of compassion for their families.
I AM looking for a few good men, who will bring direction, leadership and correction to them!
Then I will speak to you about My affairs in the earth and about the eminent danger to your families and then I will cause your seed to multiply and be great upon the earth!”
