In 1989, amateur archaeologist Ron Wyatt shocked the world, with the discovery of ancient ruins that matched the Biblical description of Sodom and Gomorrah. Many proponents and opponents of Wyatt’s work, have worked tirelessly to prove their theories as to whether or not these cities in question had indeed been found. Do Bible Codes shed some light on the nearly three decade-old mystery?
First we must look into a few of the Holy Scriptures that reference Sodom and Gomorrah.
Genesis 19:23-28 (NASB)
The sun had risen over the earth when Lot came to Zoar. 24Then the LORD rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven, 25and He overthrew those cities, and all the valley, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. 26But his wife, from behind him, looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
27Now Abraham arose early in the morning and went to the place where he had stood before the LORD; 28and he looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the valley, and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land ascended like the smoke of a furnace.
Jude 1:7 (KJV)
7Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
Deuteronomy 29:23 (NASB)
‘All its land is brimstone and salt, a burning waste, unsown and unproductive, and no grass grows in it, like the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboiim, which the LORD overthrew in His anger and in His wrath.’
It is often said that scripture interprets scripture. If Sodom and Gomorrah was going to be encoded, the plain text passage of Deuteronomy 29:23 would surely appear as keywords in the biblecode matrix. I started with the axis term, Sodom and Gomorrah, and then searched for the words that are highlighted in boldface above. Remarkably, all of these terms appeared in the Matrix.
After I had located the Sodom and Gomorrah Matrix, I watched the documentary that Ron Wyatt had produced about this extraordinary archaeological find.
This information packed video, shows the location that Ron Wyatt investigated in 1989 and 1990. Amazingly enough, ashen formations that appear to be man-made structures are still standing today, including a ziggurat and sphinx. Imbedded in the walls of the ancient structures, are millions of white sulphur balls that appear to once have been fiery sulphur hailstones.
Here is an except from the Covenant Keepers website:
The Bible says, “the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven” Genesis 19:24. Brimstone is sulphur, and exactly as the Bible described, Ron Wyatt found millions of sulphur, or brimstone balls embedded all through these pure ashen remains.
Samples of the encapsulated sulphur balls (brimstone) were taken from the ash, comprised of both calcium sulphate and calcium carbonate, and analyzed by a lab.
The lab tests produced an amazing report! The sulphur balls (brimstone) were 98% pure “monoclinic sulphur,” and have never been found anywhere else in the world.
Naturally occurring “rhombic sulphur” collected from geothermal regions have a purity rating of around 40%.
Covenant Keepers shares some important information about the reactions of the sulphur with the organic compounds of the ancient structures.
“Sulphur is usually found in crystalline form, but this sulphur is unique to the world as it is round, white and has the consistency of compact powder. Sulphur is ordinarily 30-40% sulphur, whereas these sulphur balls are 95-98% pure sulphur. The impurities in the sulphur are metals that would add to the heat given off. They burn at 5000-6000 degrees Fahrenheit. The brimstone has been tested at Galbraith Laboratories, Knoxville, Tennessee, USA, and independently by Ross Patterson in New Zealand. Sulphur is usually yellow in colour, and only found by volcanoes, sulfide ore mineral veins, or by sedimentary rocks associated with anhydrite, gypsum, limestone and saltdomes.”
“We know that these sulphur balls must have been burning at some time in the past, because of the presence of burn rings around them. Another phenomenon which does not occur naturally. This kind of 98% sulphur is unique to this planet – because it came from heaven.” -http://www.covenantkeepers.co.uk/sodom.htm
The lab analysis of the sulphur could only mean one thing; that pure monoclinic sulphur, that is specific to this region alone, was rained down several thousand years ago. It is easy to see why one could assume, that this fiery hailstorm, was a judgment sent down from Heaven to an evil populace. It appears to meet the biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah to a tee.
After watching Ark Discovery’s documentary on Sodom and Gomorrah, featuring Ron Wyatt’s work, I went to work on the “Sodom and Gomorrah Bible Code Matrix” and found these words.

I find it extremely fascinating that not only are the words of Deuteronomy 29:23, and Genesis 19:22-24 present in this table; but the terms: Ron, Wyatt, 1989, Discovered, and Sodom and Gomorrah are all in very close proximity.
Why is finding Sodom and Gomorrah so important?
The book of Luke says this:
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.” -Luke 17:26-30
Does anyone find it a coincidence, that Sodom and Gomorrah have been rediscovered in our modern times, and that Yeshua (Jesus) Himself likens the condition of the world not only to the days of Noah, but also the days of Lot- where fire rained down from Heaven and destroyed Sodom?
It is my opinion, that 2 Peter 2:6 tells us the reason why the Father lead Ron Wyatt to Sodom and Gomorrah:
“He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made them an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter;”
The ancient ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah are a physical reminder of how not to live and a stark warning for those who are wicked.
