The Children of Lot, Moab and Ammon, Born

The Children of Lot, Moab and Ammon, born: Lot and his family just escaped for their lives and lost their mother along the way (who turned to see the destruction). Lot was sore afraid to stay in Zoar, so he and his two daughters went to live in the mountains in a cave.

One day the older daughter said to the younger, “Everywhere on the earth, men and women marry and have a family. But our father is old, and there are no men around here to give us children. So let’s get our father drunk with wine. Then we can have him sow seed with us. That way we can use our father to keep our family alive!”

That night the two girls went to their father and got him drunk with wine. Then the older daughter went and had intimate relations with her father. He did not even know when she came to bed or when she got up.

Next Up…

The next day the older daughter said to the younger daughter, “Last night I went to bed with my father. Let’s get him drunk with wine again tonight. Then you can go into him. In this way, we can use our father to have children, and our family will not come to an end.”

So that night the two girls got their father drunk with wine. Then the younger daughter went and had intimate relations with her father. Again, Lot did not know when she came to bed or when she got up. Both of Lot’s daughters became pregnant. Their father was the father of their babies.

The older daughter gave birth to a son. She named him Moab. Moab is the ancestor of all the Moabites living today. The younger daughter also gave birth to a son. She named him Ben-Ammi. Ben-Ammi is the ancestor of all the Ammonites living today.

Moab Moabites, Ammon Ammonites

36 Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.

37 And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.

38 And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day.

The History Prophecy and Principle of It

History: Lot was close to Abram, but their wealth separated them. When he moved he lived among the Sodomites and Gomorahlites and it is plausible his family became accustomed to the lifestyle in that area (even if they didn’t engage in it fully).

To get up and leave had to be difficult, but the historical value of this event and story in the Bible is in Lot’s children. At the time he only had daughters whose husbands or husband-to-be decided not to leave Sodom with them.

In haste, they decided to help continue their father’s seed in the earth by having children with him. Lot would probably have never gone for this soberly, so his daughters helped him make the decision by getting him “toasty” drunk. They laid with their father and had children.

Amman, Jordan (a real place today)

Moab and Ammon, are names we can find on the maps of the world today; there is a Moab city in Utah in the United States. There is also one in the middle east. The country Jordan that neighbors modern-day Israel has a capital named Amman, which is the newer form of the name Ammon.

These are the modern-day children of Lot, Moab, and Ammon. There are plenty of Moab location in southern Africa also, in the Mozambique areas.

Prophecy: In Jeremiah chapter 48, the entire chapter covers calamities that will overtake the Moabites because of the god they serve, Nebo. Moab took a beating because of their harm and participation in the destruction of the children of Akobe.

In verse 42 of the chapter, it says, “Moab will be destroyed from being a people because he has magnified himself against the Almighty.” Nevertheless, in the latter days, the Almighty will bring the captivity of Moab back.

Join our Kingdom of Priest Institute to learn who are the Moabites today!

In the next chapter of Jeremiah, chapter 49, the LORD warns the Ammonites for their greed, harshness, backsliding, and promises to make them a desolate heap. Has this already taken place or will take place at the return of the ALMIGHTY through the Anointed?

Nevertheless, they are written in prophecy, and we see their origin as incestual children of Lot, Abraham’s nephew.

Principle: Be in your right mind! Lot was not in his right mind in many decisions he made in his life. Unfortunately, too many people are in a rush for wealth, fame, and the pleasures the world has to offer and dismiss or never see their role and purpose in life.

Lot could have become a great wingman to the children of promise, Abram’s seed through Isaaka and Akobe (Jacob). He separated to build his own wealth and name, and his descendants gathered against Akobe.

Incestual Relationships Prohibited

The deeper principle is the law that was given to the children of Akobe against incestual relationships. These laws against such are listed in Leviticus 18:8-18 and 20:11-21, also in Deuteronomy.

This behavior was common in that time, but by the time the children of Akobe came on the scene, the Almighty prohibited such close relational marriages! Today, it is utterly frowned upon to marry one’s sister, for daughters to pull a “Lot’s daughters” and so forth.

The last principle we can hang on is the principle of patience. Lot’s daughters could have waited a few months or even a year and consulted with their father and the ALMIGHTY FATHER regarding their situation.

They would have learned the earth wasn’t destroyed and they were not the last people on the earth at that time. They could have returned to Abram’s compound and restarted their lives.

    • Greetings brother Ricky; that is a question we do not have a definitive answer to. Some research has some group adamant the Moabites are China and the Ammonites are Japan. We followed the research, but for us this was inconclusive. Another institution stated Ammon and Moab were the Jordanians and the Palestinians. Once again, we like this one more, but it was still inconclusive. We are still working on research. If you find anything Ricky, please revisit and share with us. Thank you for stopping by and for your question. We hope our response at least acts as a doorway for you.

        Ruth came out of Moab and stayed with Naomi..and she believed in God…she also had a child who was in David’s lineage leading to the Messiah

        • Absolutely correct, sis Frances. Thank you for commenting.

      • Majella Majella

        The Moabites are Jordan

        • On modern-day maps, that would be correct because in Jordan we have the capital city Ammon. However, the move over to the Levant unfortunately is a “cover up” as the real Moabites and Ammonites would be near the real Jerusalem. See the project for more details Majella.

    I am glad to read more about the Moabites and Ammonites. May we be better guided in our decision making by the Lord and through His Word.

    • Thank you Dr. Olukayode, thanks for being here, and may the Almighty uplift and keep you.

  2. Muhammad was a Hashemite. Is Muhammad descendent of Lot? Jordan is Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan with capital Amman. The Ammonites settled in and around Jordan. That gives the possibility Muhammad came from Lot, not Abraham.

  3. I like how you brought out Kingdom principles from reading the story of Lot and broke down the prophecy concerning lots descendants, and the and tied it in with today. That was beautiful. We can learn Kingdom lessons. By studying the Old Testament.

    • Brother Anthony, praise the Eternal Father, glory to the Father. We’re all learning as the Holy Spirit confirms.
