(Pictures) See How The Land Of Sodom and Gomorrah Looks Like Today

The story of Sodom and Gomorrah in the bible, is a very notable story that shows how terrible God's anger can be upon a nation. According to the bible, the people of sodom and gomorrah, were very sinful (Gen 18: 20) and committed all sorts of atrocities (like homosexuality for instance), to the extent that God decided to wipe them out completely from the face of the earth. This he did by sending fire and brimstone from heaven to consume them.

This picture is for illustration purpose Genesis 19:24-25 KJV

Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; [25] And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground.

You can read the full story in Genesis 19: 13-28

After the destruction, the land of Sodom and Gomorrah was never rebuilded. Infact, it took Bible scholars and archeologists a lot of hard work, before they could finally trace the remains of the once great city of Sodom and Gomorrah. And truly, it's present state is nothing to write home about. See the location that was discovered to be Sodom and Gomorrah of old on a map.

See pictures of what the location it looks like up close:

Witnesses who have been to the location, have reported that the area is covered with ash, amd brimstone, almost resembling a desert.

No man, or nation can contain the wrath of God. The desolate land of Sodom and Gomorrah, is there today, to bear witness of what God can do when he is angry.
