New King James Version (NKJV)
Faith Without Works Is Dead
14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

When we are given a task to do, we must surge on it, there are no more excuses. Laziness is not accepted.
Timothy Wayne George's Matthew Chapter 25 comment on 2/03/2013, 2:48pm...
The sheep and goat judgment will take place when the Lord Jesus Christ comes in the second advent to establish His Kingdom. Before Him will be gathered all the nations of the world, and He will set the sheep on His right hand, and the goats on His left, then he will say I was hungry, and you feed me, thirsty, and you gave me to drink, sick and in prison, and you visited me. Naked and you clothed me, a stranger, and you took me in. Then shall the righteous say when did we do these things? Jesus shall reply, in as much as you did it unto the least of these my brothers, you did it unto me. All those nations that fail to provide for the nation Israel will be the goats, and they will be told to depart from Him into everlasting fire prepared for the devil, and his angels. The sheep on the right that did provide for Israel will be allowed to enter the kingdom of God.

This has to do with the ability of separation from thoughts that emanates from the left hemisphere of the brain and integrating into the right hemisphere, to commune and feed the Christ within us, and nothing else.
Insight 777's Matthew Chapter 25 comment on 1/13/2013, 6:22pm...
Jesus was killed by the Jews because he called himself the Son of God and refused to be called the Son of man. 1 Corinthians 1:26-29 reads "God has chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things that are strong." I believe Matthew 25:1 means, that a ruling Religion that defines heaven in its terms (be likened to the real heaven) will state that a man can have many wives; 1 groom and 10 brides. Or, perhaps these "brides" that are required to have oil may be nations that are required to have energy reserves when the Son of man takes over. Verse 8, This is exactly opposite of what Jesus taught! Only a selfish, non-Christian person would not share. Would Jesus accept a person that lacks charity? Jesus tells us to be charitable. Verse 11, Jesus is LORD of Lords, so not every man called lord is Jesus! Would Jesus turn someone away because they lacked something that can be bought or were slow in coming to him? Jesus forgave the thief, while on the cross; he does not reject people because they come to him late. Verse 14, This is the parable spoken of in Luke 19:11-26; people want to know when Jesus would return. It is shown in the Bible that he will not return until after 3.5 years of WW3. The Son of man is the evil “nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return”. The people of that kingdom that is overtaken did not want to serve him. Verse 24, Jesus does not steal! Reaping where thou hast not sown, Jesus is kind and loving to those that serve him. His lord (Not THE LORD which is Jesus) calls the man wicked because the man did not give the lord more than his lord gave him. This lord does not deny that he steals! Verse 27, Jesus does not approve of usury! "If he has exacted usury Or taken increase -- Shall he then live? He shall not live! If he has done any of these abominations, He shall surely die; His blood shall be upon him." (Ezekiel 18:13). Verse 29, This sounds like a caste system will be set up. The rich will be given what the poor has and the rich has to give to the ruling ”lord” to win his favor. Verse 30, Jesus does not destroy/cast out people that are not able to teach his doctrine or that are not good businessmen. Verse 31, The Son of man is evil and the holy angels will meet him in battle; the throne of glory for evil is WAR. Verse 32, The Son of man will rise to power at the signing of the WW3 peace treaty and separates Christians to be persecuted. Verse 34, JESUS, the King, calls out to his followers. Verses 35 and 36, Jesus explains His chosen people have charity, kindness and justice. Verse 44, Jesus tells the followers of the Son of man that they turned away the poor and did not help those in need.
Enauj's Matthew Chapter 25 comment on 1/07/2013, 12:33pm...
This passage is os meaty as the brother said in December you can break it down as the spirit of God gives you utterance. 5 wise and 5 foolish is people of today1. Wise is trying to live a holy life and the foolish is lying, stealing, cheating, fornication, adultery, killing living like the devil would have them n not referencing God or the Holy Spirit! Those are the goats that will be sat aside for the Lake of FIRE and the sheep will be ushered into the KINGDOM as God's children! The talents are concerning the wise with tithes and God blesses more. The narrow minded stingy that won't even give God the 10% He desires. The are without and will not rap more because the won't plant in the Kingdom. The talents are also to be use to usher people in to the Kingdom for God, a lot of people sit on the talents God gave them and do nothing with them! You Reap what you Sow!. Sow much, reach much! The sick, hungry, naked not free in prison are all children of GOd that suppose to be blessed by God through others that are more fortunate than some. GIVE and you will receive; for He said you have done unto me when you help others. Bless someone daily in words, deeds or needs! Be a blessing and receive the blessings from God that returns 10 fold!!!!
Paul mani's Matthew Chapter 25 comment about verse 33 on 1/04/2013, 10:14am...
Matthew 25:33 has been paraphrased as "The year of realigning for reassigning" (a church catchword for 2013). I strongly feel that there is a major conflict between judgment and grace in this theme. Perhaps, also taken out of context. I hope you will help me understand better. Am I right or wrong in my assessment of Matthew 25:33. Regards, Paul Mani.
Jay's Matthew Chapter 25 comment on 12/07/2012, 1:15pm...
Matthew 25 can be a difficult chapter so we must remember some of the basic rules of interpretation:
1. Matthew is a book about the king of the Jews (Matthew 2:2);
2. Until the cross they are under the law;
3. Jesus first came to save his people the Jews (Matthew 1:21);
4. Much of Matthew is prophetic given to the Jews for the future, knowing that the Jews were going to reject Jesus as their Messiah. The titles of each book are clues to whom that book is directed at, Jewish title or gentile title. In chapter 25, if a person stumbles over the doctrinal intent then, it will be difficult understanding the spiritual intent. I believe that this chapter 25 is mainly given to the Jews in the tribulation age. Trying to place this chapter in the church age will not work and here is why.
a. Kingdom of heaven is a Jewish term;
b. Virgins = 144,000 Jews from Revelation 7:4 3;
c. The church is always without exception referred as singular (never plural);
d. Oil = holy spirit and it can never be purchased but given when asked for in church age;
e. The wise virgins trimmed their lamps = good works;
f. The foolish virgins did not trim their lamps = no works;
g. In church age we are saved by grace not by works;
h. The 5 virgins go out to meet the bridegroom (church age saints are caught up to be with him);
i. I believe there will be a tribulation rapture (Revelation 11:12) and the 5 wise virgins that took oil, (in church age we receive oil (holy spirit)) go up with Christ in the tribulation rapture (Revelation 14:12-16) and the 5 foolish virgins that did not trim their lamps go into the millennial age after second advent of Christ.
