Discussion for Luke 19

  • Michael C.
    The "Glad Tidings Age" is probably referring to the period from the Lord's first coming in the flesh, in which He gave up Himself for us on the cross, and then rose from the dead; to the end of the age at His second coming in power and great glory. We are commissioned by Him to be His witnesses and ambassadors of the Good News of our salvation; we are not to be entangled in the things of this life

    Answering the reference to the comment titled "DENNIS FOR VERSE 11".
    By which gospel are you talking about when you say 'Gospel age' ? We are in the age of grace. Something to chew on: Galatians 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel...let him be accursed. Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel..."

    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
  • 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
  • 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.
