Discussion for Matthew 25

  • James C Hunt
    When the Bible talks about the dead in Christ will rise first what's being said is that those people who have crucified the flesh. In short they have made themselves dead to the world and alive to Christ. The virgins who didn"t put oil in their lamps - this is a direct reference to the light of God"s word which comes via the Holy Spirit. The 5 virgins had no light so they walked in darkness.
  • 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.
  • Obbie Beal
