Discussion for Luke 17

  • Bruce
    disciple: You have that backwards. Noah and his Family were taken away from the destruction coming. The same with Lots Family. The same is going to happen in the end. He will take The Ones Washed in His Blood away from The Wrath coming on The Whole World and so shall We ever be with The Lord. Has He Tugged on Your Heart? Ask Forgiveness. You will be Washed,Baptized,Changed. Salvation is WOW!!!
  • A disciple
    Peter; from the examples used by the Lord here; who were the ones remaining? not the wicked, but the saved! Only Noah, and they that were with him in the ark were left after the cataclysm. Of all those who lived in the cities of the plain, on the south shore of what is now the Dead Sea; only Lot and his family escaped the overthrow of fire and burning sulfur. Read Matthew 13; the evil are removed.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    May we NOT be among those who will be left behind when the Lord shall come. To ensure that this happens, we must be ready for His Kingdom through our being washed in the Blood of the Lamb. This chapter also underscores the importance of appreciating God's goodness towards us. One out of the ten lepers returned to thank Jesus.
  • Zeingoff
    Lk 20-21 the kingdom comes not with observation. No one will see for we are made in the image of God. That is our bodies within are spirit as the Father is spirit. These sayings of Jesus are always symbolic. Substitute mustard seed/faith for instance. He wants us to work at this and not be blind leading blind. You can't site verse to prove a point, especially from Paul, who taught different
  • Word
    In vs 23 Christ tells us don't go! The one in the field and those that go are going the wrong way. They are taken because of their own ignorance. I think of it as when the false messiah gets here and he acts likes Jesus, looks like Jesus, performs miracles like nothing they have ever seen and he claims to be God return and every body in the world believe it God returned it just has to be. Don't go
  • Stephende
    The Master wasn't speaking, I don't think about some Apocalypse at his returning. No one will witness Him floating down from heaven to beat up the bad guys. What's important to me is that the Kingdom is within, or impressive to the truly faithful, who has humbled himself completely as the parable states. It is one's duty to seek the Kingdom! Your reward is given in secret and no man will rob.
