Discussion for Luke 17

  • A disciple
    (continued) This is not to further argue with those who want to believe fantasies rather than receive instruction from the Spirit of Truth; but that everyone knows, it was APOSTASY OF BELIEVERS that caused the destruction of all piety and fear of God in the world, by their casting off the bonds of the Spirit and moral restraint. The flood of Noah however did not wash this evil out of men's hearts.
  • A disciple
    "But first must he suffer many things, and be rejected of this generation: and as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man." In Genesis 6 is first shown the root cause of the complete and utter ruin of the world, and of its being filled with violence and every thought of men's hearts every day only evil continually: REJECTION OF GOD'S SPIRIT BY THOSE WHO KNEW!
  • Times and laws
    two men in the bed, those who sleep in their dusty beds, there are those who are resurrected and those who are not at the days of the son of man, two women : two churches Yahs true church and the Babylon church, two in field: laborers for Yah, laborers for satan, Taken in Everlasting death. As in Noahs day
  • William Iannucci
    Why has our country by the known Churches turned away ,is there not any to make a difference? I am unknown but am well known by my Master for he is in me though I be not Christ and shall continue to do exploits in honor of the Lord God Almighty who rules and reigns forever. SELAH AMEN PS Even thoughs who call on his name shall be delivered from darkness unto light through Christ who alone is JESUS
  • Jo Ann Wulf
    And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 2 Thess 2:8 KJB
  • 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!!!
