Wesley's Notes for Luke 17:21

17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here, or lo there - This shall not be the language of those who are, or shall be sent by me, to declare the coming of my kingdom. For behold the kingdom of God is within or among you - Look not for it in distant times or remote places: it is now in the midst of you: it is come: it is present in the soul of every true believer: it is a spiritual kingdom, an internal principle. Wherever it exists, it exists in the heart.

Discussion for Luke 17

  • Word
    Timothy your right about the statement that they are not speaking of gay men but you should mention the first one taken should of read verse 23 before he chased after antichrist. The first ones that you read about in scripture are the ones taking after the false messiah and are deceived And the ones left in the field or on the housetops are working and watching and waiting for the true Christ. They read the first seal and believed God and read the scriptures and know Satan is coming claiming to be God and claiming to be the Savior. Satan will look like the Lamb but he still speaks like the dragon because he twist scriptures and lies.
  • Timothy for verse 34
    two men in one bed only means two men of the same circumstance, has nothing to do with homosexuality. If two men were actually in bed together doing an immoral act when jesus came back do you actually believe that he would take one of them? wake up its the same for liars murderers adulterers and whoever else decides to not follow him saved previously or not. :
  • The spirit will be saved and live whilst the body is lost. Evil or vultures that seek to devour the spirit are in th body mind
  • Chitsanzo H Mokiwa for verse 5
    It's all about recognizing your shortfall and asking for a specific direct help!!!!
  • John Hodge
    This chapter is reminding man, to get ready because His coming is very near. God also displaying His, Unconditional-Love to mankind, still asking that old question 'Adam where art thou? Throughout the ages He's asking that same question in Luke,asking where are the rest 90 in giving 'Thanks' to God and His Son for His Loving-kindness and spite of our un-thankfulness to Him. In the days of Lot and Noah man god is still materialistic things until now! God sill loves us and giving us time to repent and be prepared for His soon returns to this earth.

    Luke is a very a interesting chapter and its a eye opening verse and I teaches you that went god blesses you must give thanks to him and serve him that when you are in need again he can help you and when you don 't thank him. HE WILL forgive you and he will help you again because he forgives you 70 7
