    what does the grinding means in the scripture, two women shall be grinding together, what does this mean, please explain this to me, two men in bed together, what does this mean?
  • Jones p t - in Reply on Luke 17:3
    Luke 17:35-36. To my understanding it denots the household works in afternoon. In olden times grinding works carried out in the afternoon by women. As also two men in the field denots the day time, works in the field. Luke 17:34 says : in that night there shall be two men in one bed. This is picture of the world when our Lord appears in the heaven. Our Lord come for the whole world. Then as usual half of the world is under night and other half - in day time.Luke 21:27 and then shall they see the son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Luke 21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. The sealing is already over and sealed will be transformed instantaneously and fly towards our Lord. When our Lord comes, saved and unsaved are intimately living together and only saved are transformed.It is a warning to all belivers for checking their names in the book of life and uptodate it now. It is our personal choice only. "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Revelation 20:15.Believe in Jesus and keep his commandmends.Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. 1John4:15.

    The men were probably huddled around a campfire to keep warm. Anyone who camps out under the stars knows that. Let's not fix this scripture to an issue of homosexuality, ok?

    Grinding: they were grinding grain into a flour to bake with. You can easily say 2 women are standing side by side. The believer in Jesus will be caught up in the clouds; the unbeliever will not.

    We read the Bible every day so our minds can be renewed on the Holiness and Purity of Jesus: who is the Word of God, in the flesh.

    Back in the day when you could not go to the grocery store to get your cereal people made their own flour by grinding the grains into flour. Two women grinding together is what that verse is referring to. The two men in bed, back in the day and most third world countries there is one room where people sleep. Very common for families to be sleeping in one large bedded area. Hence to men in bed together.

    Looks like you're talking about Luke 17:34-35. This is Jesus talking about an event many call the rapture where people are taken away- possibly to paradise or to maybe be judged first. I personally do not know how this coincides with Jesus meeting His followers in the air 1 Thessalonians 4:17. I don't believe the end times events is a salvation issue so I don't have a particular opinion on it. As for the women grinding, I think these are women working in a mill. As for the men, I think they were sleeping in a bed. I don't believe this implies any kind of homosexuality as it's not uncommon for people to stay in people's houses and share a bed or whatever limited resources they had.
  • Supo Abayode - in Reply on Luke 17:3
    1. Thanks for that. Many have been saying once a christian and that's it. As you rightly said, end time event is not salvation. You receive salvation when you become born again and grace is imparted into you. But at the seat of judgement, you need mercy. The grace given to you at salvation is to overcome sin and do what you are assigned to do. You will give account of the use of the grace; what you used the grace for: Romans 2:5-7 "5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God;6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:"

    At the judgement seat, you need mercy. And mercy is at the discretion of the Lord.

    2. The issue of two men on the same bed is not in support of homosexuality. Rather, it is an assumption by those who conclude on the perversion. Being in the same bed together is not to mean they were sexually cordial. It is a family thing. And it does not mean they are both men; the word "men" could be used as unisex to mean a species. Thank you again

    This is talking about the rapture. The end of days. One believer will be taken up while the unbeliever will not. Poof, just like that. We (believers) are out of here.
  • Obbie Beal on Luke 17:3
    1 Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come! 2 It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

    Note: in 1-2 JESUS prepares both our heart and mind as it relates to living day to day; HE assures us wrong-offences shall come against us. Also JESUS assures us HE is keeping record of those who wrongly commit offences against us.

    Note: we must always remember there are those of us whose name is written in THE LAMB BOOK Of LIFE thereby we are hated by the dragon who is always working day and night to plan and use others to commit offences against us. Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, ...
