Discussion for Luke 17:34

  • God created mankind as He saw fit. It is not our place to second guess what He created and called it "good "
  • Fear not! for verse 34
    We are sons! consecreted made holy For how long? Evermore. THE OATH!
  • Fear not! for verse 34
    Kevin you need to learn the truth. 1 John 5 20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. Eternal life is the true God! Jesus saves, we failed. Salvation 101.
  • Fear not for verse 34
    Walking in darkness! Do not forget to make your eye single. Jesus is the LIGHT of LIFE. Life? Did you miss that? He saves all who reach out immediately and to the UTTERMOST. This is on Gods scale. No human can comprehend how "saved " that is. Only that it cannot be more sure. Hebrews 7 25 28. Fear the end? Read, it is no joke Romans 6 22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
  • Kevin Boyce for verse 34
    Two men "sleeping" means they are dead. One will be resurrected to eternal life, the other will be resurrected a thousand years later to everlasting punishment (destruction). Pre-trib rapture is FALSE! Two women (churches) grinding at the mill means two types of churches, both doing God's work, but the true church follow the 10 commandments and ALL false ones do not. Two men working in a field means the same thing, out in the world (field) working, doing God's work, one a true follower who obey the commandments and the other who do not... Jesus said that many will come to Him in that day saying Lord, Lord..... Only believers will call Jesus Lord. Being sincere is not enough, we can be sincerely wrong and not even know it! Faith is also believing the 10 commandments were written by God for our own good..... "If you love me, follow my commandments" said Jesus....
  • It just confirms to me that Jesus was aware that they'll be issues of homosexuality in the latter day's being brought to light, and that if a homosexual person or persons believe in the salvation of the blood of Jesus Christ they too will be saved.
