  • William for verse 46
    the bible tells us the wicked will be destroyed ...not tormented forever ...John 3:16 .....shall not perish ...not be tormented forever ...your thoughts on this? ....
  • Steven
    When it says the wicked shall be "destroyed", (i.e. ruined) it refers to the fact that every bit of our EARTHLY LIFE will be "destroyed" i.e. wiped out, forgotten, ruined, thrown OUT. Keeping that in mind, they will be thrown out into outer darkness (verse 30 above) and everlasting fire (verse 41) Remember, this is King James era (AD. 1611) English. Death does not mean extinction of existence.
  • The Bible isn't perfect and there are many contradictions therein. The Gospel of John commonly contradicts the other 3 gospels, and The Old Testament.

    Matthew 16:27 Jesus Christ said For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels and then he shall reward every man according to his works.
  • James C Hunt
    When the Bible talks about the dead in Christ will rise first what's being said is that those people who have crucified the flesh. In short they have made themselves dead to the world and alive to Christ. The virgins who didn"t put oil in their lamps - this is a direct reference to the light of God"s word which comes via the Holy Spirit. The 5 virgins had no light so they walked in darkness.

    The dead in Christ shall rise first. They are already risen. If you are saved and die, you go straight to Heaven. At the end of days, we that are alive will be caught up together with them and Christ.
    The wicked lie saying, No where does it say who the two witnesses are. But I believe they could be any 2 of these 3. But it could be you and me or any two saints. I ask God lots of time for Him to let me be one of them. It would be an honor to die again for Christ. YE NEITHER WITNESS NOR HONOUR ME. It is written, I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me bear witness of me.
  • James C Hunt
    What 2 witnesses are you talking about? Are you referring to the 2 witnesses in Revelations in Chapter 11 or 12? If so I think it's fairly accepted that these 2 are going to be Elijah the prophet and Enoch. Both of these guys were swept up to heaven. In short they never died. Yet the Bible states it's appointed for everyone to die "and then comes the judgement". So these guys come back to earth

    ch.25: mainly be diligent and responsible with what you have been given-God is coming with rewards in His hand. We may be surprised by the things he has kept in our account when we get to heaven, but we know the Father desires to give us the kingdom. I don't want to be a goat!
  • Obbie Beal
    verse 31-33, on that great-day, the process of separating the 'saved' from the' unsaved' will be so simple.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 1-13, only 50 percent entered into the marriage, 50 percent did not make it in. 14-30 someone wasted her his talent Life Free or slave, Life from Jehovah GOD is the talent foundation, what we do with our Life is a personal-chore never-the-less I shall give an account to GOD that day. And I will not be able to blame nobody for what I did or did not do with my talent life.
  • Obbie Beal
    34 - 46 Jesus explain my 'personal' responsibility! i can not blame my failure on no body but myself!
  • Ivy Johnson
    The reason why the dead in Christ rise first, is because they have to come from 6 feet under. Their bodies are meeting-up with their spirit in the air.Those alive and remain are on the earth. They do not have far to go. That is why the dead in Christ has to rise first. Both those who are dead, and those alive will receive their Glorified Bodies. Just like Our Lords. A Bloodless Body! GLORY!!!!
  • Grace Koome
    Todays word according to Matthew 25:23 is addressing a very important issue that is lacking grossly from majority of people some Christians included, that is faithfullness in whatever is entrusted to us , whether in Church, business or workplace sometimes including family!. How faithful are we especially here in Africa and my country Kenya in managelent of the vast resources God has given us? How faithful are we in Church no matter how 'small' the Godly assignment appear whether its teaching in Sunday School or in Ushering or tithing? God help us but we need to search our hearts and decide,"let it start with me.". God be given all the glory. Amen

    thank you for giving the truth to your brothers and sisters in Christ. so true our stewardship of time, talents and resources for the Kingdom of GOD. many blessings to you and your family.
  • John919
    Read ( John 17 ) and you will understand Matthew 23 through 25. We are taken out of the ways of this World but we are still on the earth doing the will of God and feeding the true words of Jesus Christ to those who are his. Earth is the footstool of Jesus Christ and he defeated Satan when he poured out his soul unto death for all those who our Heavenly Father gave unto him forever to love.
  • Randy
    Word...The word rapture is in the bible. It comes from the Latin Vulgate Bible. It means "caught up". Holy to the LORD!
  • BSP
    Verse 13~We do not know when our Lord Jesus Christ is coming so we must keep on the watch and make sure that we live our lives everyday in a way that shows we are keeping in expectation.
  • Word
    Steve the church or the people in them are not Prophets, not the church your speaking of. Now there is a church that is mentioned in certain areas of scripture which is speaking of the set aside ones or the elect that were chosen before this earth age or the first earth age when Satan's rebellion took place but even those elect are here with the two witnesses, Moses, Elijah or Enoch an will stand.
  • Stanjett
    No where does it say who the two witnesses are. But I believe they could be any 2 of these 3. But it could be you and me or any two saints. I ask God lots of time for Him to let me be one of them. It would be an honor to die again for Christ.

    The Seven Raptures in the Bible
    1.The rapture of Enoch: Enoch walked with God then he was raptured into Heaven (Genesis 5: 23 And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years: 24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him. Enoch is a picture of the rapture of the church and he prophesied the Second Coming of Christ (Jude 14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, ...
  • Word
    Bruce know why the dead rise 1st because they are already with Him. The subject of this chapter 4 in 1 Thess is those that are sleep or dead not rapture and if God would of wanted rapture in the Bible he would of made a whole chapter on it.Listen to Paul in 2 Thess 2 read exactly how we gather back,don't believe lies taught from 1 Thess 4.Paul even says in 2 Thess don't listen to that first letter
  • Bruce
    word: For The Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with The Voice of The Archangel and with The Trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then We which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air and so shall We ever be with The Lord.1Thessalonians4:16-17.( The Rapture)
  • Word
    The mystery of the rapture is that It's Not In The Bible! Except In Ezekiel 13 where God speaks of preachers who make up things, their own Devine thoughts which are lies telling people they will fly to save their souls (KJV) well God hates it! No rapture we all change at the 7th Trump and no one gets out of the test that God has planned for salvation. Think! Keep track of the subject when reading.
  • Ivan
    Unlike the second coming this parable is a example of the mystery of the Rapture. It is the only parable that Jesus did not explain. Virgins represent believers in the bible. Oil represents the Holly Spirit. The only way we can live a life pleasing to God is getting and staying filled with the Holy Spirit. It takes lots of prayer and spending time with the Lord. No shortcuts.
  • George
    Ask the Lord to reveal to you where you stand and he will do that in such a way that your heart will understand. Growth is not comfortable but God's goodness is continuously at work. When it seems that we are not what we should be don't be afraid. He just wants us to be faithful with what we've been given because it is designed to make us what he wants us to be. Our faith will make us whole.
  • A disciple
    Maggie (cont.); As long as we continue seeking Jesus and loving Him first and far above all others, and do not let ourselves slip into disobedience, coldness and lethargy; and we don't harden our hearts or grow indifferent and unbelieving; "As long as Jesus is on the throne and our faith in Him is intact; everything's gonna turn out alright!" We don't walk by feelings, but must deal with feelings.
  • A disciple
    Hi Maggie; The Holy Spirit will guide you into all the truth. His chief work is to convict men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and so He will certainly FIRST work in those who of the Household of God in Jesus. When we do what is pleasing to God, He answers us with joy in our hearts. When we do evil, He condemns and convicts so that we'll repent and change. God gives us assurance!
  • Maggie Short
    How do I know if I'm being a good and faithful enough? I try to be and want to be, but I can't be sure that I am. It's frightening.
  • Stanjett
    First you got to know that there was a person named Jesus. He of course is all through the bible but not only the bible but through other publications. If you have computer search and you will see that other writings about him was made by others not only the saved but of the unsaved. Most of these speak of him as a leader of a cult. Many who knew him testified of him after his death.
