“After a long time the lord of those servants cometh, and reckoneth with them.”
King James Version (KJV)
Mt 25:19 After a long time the lord of those servants cometh. There is certainly a hint here that a long period would pass before the Lord's return. And reckoneth with them. When our race meets the Lord, every mortal, saint, and sinner, good and bad, will be called on for a reckoning. Every one's opportunities, as well as the character of his life and works, will be considered.
