If we all are going to die one type of death or another (physical and/or spiritual), if we all are going to lose EVERYTHING that we have acquired in this life, then what is there for us to lose if we believe the Word of God for all that the Holy Bible promises us? Why not secure our eternal place in Heaven with God rather than secure our everlasting place in the Lake of Fire with Satan and his demons? Why don’t we choose this day whether we will serve God or serve Satan’s corrupt economic, political, and religious systems?
Contrary to popular opinion, the Ten Virgins’ parable is not about Israel being grafted back onto the Olive Tree just in time to rule with Christ during His millennial reign. The Ten Virgins’ parable is about all believers (Jews and Gentiles) who live and die on Earth during the CHURCH Age (cf. Matthew 25:1-13).
ho is robbing believers blind in the House of the Lord? Who is prejudicing saved and unsaved ethnic groups against praying and worshipping in the House of the Lord?
The Holy Bible makes it clear that Christians, especially, should show their “…fear of God by standing up in the presence of elderly people and showing respect for the aged” (Leviticus 19:32, NLT).
“Judge not, that ye be not judged” is not applicable to everyone.
The spiritual significance about the notable three major crops that makes these crops the most important ones for believers is these crops relate to the anticipated redemptive work of Christ, to His resurrected glory, and to believers’ eternal life. In essence, the barley, wheat, and grapes or the fruit of the vine crops represent Jesus the Christ’s three different kinds of souls that will be harvested by the end of the age—end of the world as humans know it. Moreover, since barley, wheat, and grapes are harvested during Israel’s three harvest seasons, these harvest seasons not only symbolize the spiritual principles rooted in the seven annual Jewish feasts but also represent the fulfillment of God’s prophetic appointed times (mo’edim) for believers—God’s appointed times in which He directly redeems and delivers believers. For sure, all of the Biblical mo’edim are prophetic, for they each reveal divine truth about the plans and counsel of the LORD God of Israel who also is the Lord God of us all.
A sheep, is a sheep, is a sheep, or perhaps not. Which sheep can discern what kinds of sheep are in the flocks (churches or ministries) in which they are a part of the sheepfold? Which sheep can discern if their undershepherds are living laborious lives full of ceaseless watchfulness, love and concern for Christ’s sheep, opting to stay with them day and night? Which sheep know if their undershepherds are living convenient lives full of pretentious power, filthy greed, and evil deception and seduction—who will choose to flee when the going gets tough, or when offers of greener pastures come their way?
In order for us to come direct and correct with others about what is or isn’t in the Word of God, we must stop putting all of our trust in men and women for them to tell us what “thus saith the Lord.” Instead of just gobbling up men and women’s teachings and interpretations of the WORD, we also must read, examine and meditate on God’s Word for ourselves so that we might be able to show God that we truly know and understand what He is saying to us.
Jesus the Christ is coming back for the rest of His firstfruits—His soul winning Church and His soul winning martyred Tribulation saints. He also is coming back for His end of the age abundant harvest—His Wheat.
