Discussion for Luke 19

  • Randy
    Dennis. I have to say for the Gospels sake and the souls of many, there is definitely going to be a 2nd coming of the Lord Jesus Christ, 1st Thessalonians CH 4 will explain that for you.The view you are portraying from the great book of Revelation my friend is unbiblical , seek God, that He would have the precious Holy Spirit lead you into the truth of His Word. God Bless
  • Robert Flanagan
    A beautiful teaching.
  • Lilian
    Jesus himself is the word of God. He who loves him should keep his commandments. Our faith comes only by hearing the word of God without his words it's impossible to please him. Church is a groom of the bride which is in heaven. If Jesus found us in the church praising, thanking him we will surely receive his blessing. Church is the house of prayer. On Jesus is the great Jehova Jireh the provider amen
  • Joe
    Joe -- I am sorry for your grief and pray for your future. Please keep the faith in God His only begotten Son even though you are suffering afflictions in this world.
  • John
    "Without faith it is impossible to please God." "Faith without works is dead like a body with out a soul."
    I will stay in my faith in the Lord praying Him to guide me to good works, Whether the 1000 year reign of peace as it s mentioned in the Bible is symbolic, or if it is literal.
  • The biblical reference to a thousand years in Rev 20 is NOT teaching a literal thousand year period that is to take place here on this earth. The whole book of Revelation is referring to the day in which we all live, the entire Gospel Age, however long that may be. What John wrote about, using symbolical language to describe the things which Christ shows him, is what is transpiring all around us. This understanding of the book is called Amillennialism, or a Realized Millennium. Not two comings, nor two judgments, nor a 1,000 yr reign followed by eternity. Rather Christ comes and raises the dead at the "last day." The righteous go into eternal life. The wicked are cast into outer darkness, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.
