Discussion for Matthew 25

  • I AM THAT MICHAEL ISAAC DALE:
    The wicked lie saying, No where does it say who the two witnesses are. But I believe they could be any 2 of these 3. But it could be you and me or any two saints. I ask God lots of time for Him to let me be one of them. It would be an honor to die again for Christ. YE NEITHER WITNESS NOR HONOUR ME. It is written, I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bear witness of me.

    ch.25: mainly be diligent and responsible with what you have been given-God is coming with rewards in His hand. We may be surprised by the things he has kept in our account when we get to heaven, but we know the Father desires to give us the kingdom. I don't want to be a goat!
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 31-33, on that great-day, the process of separating the 'saved' from the' unsaved' will be so simple.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 1-13, only 50 percent entered into the marriage, 50 percent did not make it in. 14-30 someone wasted her his talent Life Free or slave, Life from Jehovah GOD is the talent foundation, what we do with our Life is a personal-chore never-the-less I shall give an account to GOD that day. And I will not be able to blame nobody for what I did or did not do with my talent life.

    34 - 46 Jesus explain my 'personal' responsibility! i can not blame my failure on no body but myself!
  • Ivy Johnson
    The reason why the dead in Christ rise first, is because they have to come from 6 feet under. Their bodies are meeting-up with their spirit in the air.Those alive and remain are on the earth. They do not have far to go. That is why the dead in Christ has to rise first. Both those who are dead, and those alive will receive their Glorified Bodies. Just like Our Lords. A Bloodless Body! GLORY!!!!
