Discussion for Matthew 24

  • A disciple
    Lu2677 cont.; We will undoubtedly come across many that will only seek to oppose and contradict us; and sometimes those that are just speaking things because they heard some one else say them; and those also who have a very small and underdeveloped understanding: whatever the case, we have the Master as our Leader and example to follow when dealing with all kinds, and His Spirit speaking in us.
  • A disciple
    Lu2677 cont. The way I understand it, we are under a charge from God to teach all men to observe (keep and do) all things that Jesus commands us; that we are His Ambassadors and Friends, sent to "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering and doctrine:"(2 Tim.4:2) "These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority."(Tit.2:15).
  • A disciple
    Hello Lu2677, nice to hear from you again :) Deuteronomy 29:29; Matthew 6:4,6,18; Ezekiel 8:12; etc.. In Moses "the secret things" has to do with how the people would eventually be punished severely for forsaking the Holy Covenant, in light of their inward defiance and disbelief. The Lord teaches us about our religion being in truth in the inward parts. Ezekiel was shown their secret sinful minds.
  • Lu2677
    disciple;3 days ago;"the secret things that belong to God.'Where can I find knowledge of this concept? We are not to judge the things that are doubtful,or dispute over words;I agree.
    It appears that my questions are often mistaken for judgement, by many here. "We don't know all the things He has shown them."Impossible to know all.When they write untruth, and opinions,let's shed His light on it.
  • A disciple
    "Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." What must they have wrong, that with all this time for spiritual growth and preparation, they should only prove bereft of grace to stand in the day of adversity?
  • A disciple
    Lu2677; Please read what I wrote one more time. What I said was that since none of us can really express with words all that the Lord has caused ourselves to know, so we shouldn't be so ready to scrutinize another, as we definitely don't know all the Lord has shown them. This has to do with the secret things that belong to God and the areas in which we aught not to judge each other. Is that wrong?
