All articles and research about GOD, on my web sites and this blog are about the ONE TRUE Father GOD, who is the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who’s personal covenant name is Yahweh.

As are all my articles and research about Jesus, are under His covenant name of the begotten Son’s personal name of Yeshua.

It is not my purpose to force you to agree or believe with what's on my websites, but rather to share my research.
As the record goes. I'm Just a soul who's intentions are good. Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood. I am Simon Brown. Amen.

Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand! Matthew 11:15.
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the

Dear friends, just to remind you, as I am a human being, I am capable of making mistakes. If you believe I am wrong, don't let it go, but please be kind and let me know. Thank you.

But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good. 1 Thessalonians 5:21.

DISCOVERED - HISTORICAL EVIDENCE OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH.

Evidence of the region and the remains of the "cities of the plain" as found in 2000 year old historical documents.

Dear friends,
I recently wrote an article called BURIED TREASURES . An exciting article detailing treasures that are buried in different times and places that speak of timeless realities to people of every time and place, that convey important truths about God and his Kingdom.

Jesus left people from all tribes and tongue the truth waiting to be discovered, many of these discoveries buried and hidden on the earth for thousands of years were waiting for those who would dig deep. Only this time those truths would appear physically and would again reveal the hidden secrets which would then become more valuable than a pearl of great price.

Treasures such as the names of people in the Bible, carved and printed on scrolls and rock solid clay tablets hidden in caves or buried in the ground never to be forgotten.

Now more historical importance has been uncovered.

More evidence is now emerging and unlocking the most hidden secrets of the historical existence of Sodom and Gomorrah including the region and the remains of the "cities of the plain" as told in (Genesis 14:1-3, 14:8-10, 34:3)

This evidence not only confirms with the Hebrew book of Genesis. It is evidence outside of the Bible that indicates Sodom and Gomorrah, the "cities of the plain" were indeed situated and located on the plain in the southern region of the land of Canaan, the Jordan River Plain or the modern day Dead Sea.

While I was studying  I was excited to discover an article about Sodom and Gomorrah on the Wikipedia site saying:

Strabo states that locals living near Moasada (as opposed to Masada) say that "there were once thirteen inhabited cities in that region of which Sodom was the metropolis".

Who is Strabo?
The Greek geographer Strabo in a 16th-century engraving 
He was a Greek historiangeographer and philosopher who was born to an affluent family from Amaseia in Pontus (modernAmasyaTurkey) and lived in 64/63 BC - ca. AD 24.

It is written that Strabo travelled to many places studying and writing. It seems Strabo was like the Flavius Josephus.


Why is this interesting?
It is interesting because his statement confirms with what I have always believed.  I have travelled to this southern region of the land of Canaan the Jordan River Plain, the modern day Dead Sea, 5 times filming and researching these remains of Sodom and Gomorrah looking to discover the truth.
And just as Strabo states "there were once inhabited cities in that region of which Sodom was the metropolis".
Gomorrah 

This is the same region and place where I researched and found most of the evidence of the remains of Gomorrah right at the base of Masada and as stated by the locals living nearMasada, 1000's of years ago by Strabo.

If you travel from Jericho down to the plain in the southern region of the land of Canaan on the shore of the Dead Sea you see patches of buildings, shapes and shadows all the way down to the furthest point of the Dead Sea.

Gomorrah 

However the most obvious two built up regions are most definitely at the base of Masada which I believe is the ashen city of Gomorrah.

And if you then continue driving down to the south western tip of the Dead Sea you end up at a very built up region of far greater looking buildings, shapes and shadows
Sodom 

Strabo also states here:
Strabo identifies a limestone and salt hill at the south western tip of the Dead Sea and Kharbet Usdum ruins nearby as the site of Biblical Sodom.

How amazing!!
This is the same region to which I took a crew in the hope that we would find the remains of Sodom.

When we got to the tip of the Dead Sea we found ourselves staring at a very built up region of great buildings, shapes and shadow.

We found a sign saying MOUNT SODOM.
Half hour later we were standing amongst what looked like shadows double Canaanite walls and many types of sphinx and ziggurats.

Sodom and Gomorrah  
Now for the first time ever we have more written historical evidence by another Greek historian, geographer and philosopher stating Sodom and Gomorrah, the "cities of the plain" were in the exact same places and region we filmed and researched.

Only this time better still, Strabo revealed the exact region to be the same as written in Genesis 14:1-3, 14:8-10, 34:3 of the Bible and the same region my crew and I investigated.

At the time when Amraphel was king of Shinar, Arioch king of Ellasar, Kedorlaomer king of Elam and Tidal king of Goyim, 2 these kings went to war against Bera king of Sodom, Birsha king of Gomorrah, Shinab king of Admah, Shemeber king of Zeboyim, and the king of Bela (that is, Zoar). 3 All these latter kings joined forces in the Valley of Siddim (that is, the Dead Sea Valley).Genesis 14:1

We now have two historians confirming:
1. "There were once inhabited cities in that region of the dead sea, near Masada, under the metropolis" city of Sodom.

2. That Sodom was at the south western tip of the Dead Sea, by a salt hill, which I believe could be the very hill that my crew and I climbed.

3. Which was also written by Flavius Josephus, who stated that there are still the remains of the divine fire, and the traces (or shadows) of five cities are still to be seen.

We also have writings which have been discovered outside the Bible, on clay tables describing that there were cities that were destroyed in a rain of fire.

Archibald Sayce translated an Akkadian poem describing cities that were destroyed in a rain of fire, written from the view of a person who escaped the destruction; the names of the cities are not given. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Further proof confirming with Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained down burning sulphur on Sodom and Gomorrah-from the LORD out of the heavens. Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, including all those living in the cities-and also the vegetation in the land.

The Rev. Archibald Henry Sayce (25 September 1846 - 4 February 1933), was a pioneer British Assyriologist and linguist, who held a chair as Professor of Assyriology at the University of Oxford from 1891 to  1919. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Interestingly
Geologists have confirmed that no volcanic activity occurred within the last 4000 years, at the plains of Dead Sea.

So where did the mysterious balls of sulphur come from?

Wikipedia now says:
All sites that were located near the Dead Sea had evidence of burning and traces of sulphur.

If we look in the pages of the Bible of Genesis 19:24, we can see where the sulphur came from.

Then the LORD rained down burning sulphur.

Sadly for many unless we are truly born again, we will not be able to see or understand these buildings, shapes and shadows, and the mysterious balls of sulphur.

Unless we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, no matter how hard we look or how far we travel, we will be unable to find the hidden secrets and the deeper meaning and underlying truth of the reality of God's Word.

As we still see today  so many  are still looking, yet not seeing, yet the evidence is right in front of us, but many are still scratching their heads.
ZIGGURATS 


The Bible has never been wrong!

"Though seeing, they do not see;
Though hearing, they do not hear or understand Matthew 13:13.

Because the knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. Matthew 13:11.

First we must accept Jesus, take up our cross and follow him, then we will discover his hidden secrets.
 Surrender Your Heart To God.

As for others I hope you agree with me the evidence of these buildings, shapes and shadows, my crew and I found and investigated by the Dead Sea which was believed to have been originally discovered by Ron Wyatt, are NOW starting to shoot the sceptics and the scoffers in the foot.

More proof that conveys important truths that once were concealed mysteries are now emerging from their secret hiding place.

I presume because you are taking the time to read this you too are hungry to discover more. I like to receive feedback from you as I am open minded and willing to listen to what people have to say.

Please email me Simon Brown

In the mean time I am planning to visit the shore of the Dead Sea again to do some more research on the southern region of the tip of the Dead Sea.

If you are interested and would like to come with me then please send me an email.

Thank you for reading this article. May the Lord God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob bless you in Jesus name I pray.
