  1. You need also verse - 11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear. This whole quote you chose was because they thought their view of what God's kingdom was going to be, was gonna suddenly start. Has nothing to do with 'heavenly rewards' nor eternity. But a showing that there will be 'history' to live through til his kingdom would start. And how they and us will be blessed or not til then in our service to him. Hence - you also should've finished with - 27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. When he reigns while we live out our lives here on earth. Not in eternity.
  2. Just what are you clarifying? Eric? What do you think the scriptures are saying there then? The Lord's whole subject is on his equality of payment to the laborers! You both are sadly humorous, I find it too hard to believe your serious answers - but I shall not overly concern myself with your sanity. Goodnight.
  3. Your example was very severe for someone who would profess to be a Christian. As such, that shows zero % conversion. No, the test is his testimony of life. A Christian lives like a Christian, not like a lost person - lost people never act like Christ. So if a 'believer' never acts like a believer, what difference will his testimony do to show him saved? Nothing - there is no testimony. No fruit. No conversion. And just what part of knowing someone by their fruits don't you understand? I was a carpenter for about 20 years. I have seen many different men in their chosen trades. Each claiming he was a painter, or drywall finisher, a cabinet installer, etc. But not one time did they claim to be those professions without the 'fruit' to prove their claim. They had previous training and jobs completed to show evidence they were what they claimed to be. The same goes for a converted lost soul - they are become a new creature, and have evidence of such conversion. This is not a works salvation Dave, so don't even bother going there. We all know better.
  4. No. Because a real believer will not do that. The first shall be last and the last shall be first. Why would you expect more? The Lord gave us eternal life - why would you add more than that? Because you and others are looking for a way to make you look more valuable than a 'weak brother'. "Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations." Just because someone is not as dedicated as some just equals - (the way the Lord told us) - some 30, some 60, some 100... Eric there is also the 'reasoning' about people 'calling upon the name of the Lord' to BE saved. When the word of God says clearly contrary to that thoughtline with these verses from Matthew 7 - 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
  5. Bad example bro. That is not eternity time nor reward time.
  6. I know people will say this is the 'kingdom age' stuff, but look at it - the Lord said in chapter 19 verse 29 that they shall "inherit everlasting life" - that is eternity folks. 1 For the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which went out early in the morning to hire labourers into his vineyard. 2 And when he had agreed with the labourers for a penny a day, he sent them into his vineyard. 3 And he went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace, 4 And said unto them; Go ye also into the vineyard, and whatsoever is right I will give you. And they went their way. 5 Again he went out about the sixth and ninth hour, and did likewise. 6 And about the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle, and saith unto them, Why stand ye here all the day idle? 7 They say unto him, Because no man hath hired us. He saith unto them, Go ye also into the vineyard; and whatsoever is right,that shall ye receive. 8 So when even was come, the lord of the vineyard saith unto his steward, Call the labourers, and give them their hire, beginning from the last unto the first. 9 And when they came thatwere hired about the eleventh hour, they received every man a penny. 10 But when the first came, they supposed that they should have received more; and they likewise received every man a penny. 11 And when they had received it, they murmured against the goodman of the house, 12 Saying, These last have wrought but one hour, and thou hast made them equal unto us, which have borne the burden and heat of the day. 13 But he answered one of them, and said, Friend, I do thee no wrong: didst not thou agree with me for a penny? 14 Take that thine is, and go thy way: I will give unto this last, even as unto thee. 15 Is it not lawful for me to do what I will with mine own? Is thine eye evil, because I am good? 16 So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen. Once again we are all equal.
  7. There are no 'positions' in eternity. We will live just like the Lord intended in Adams early days - on an earth that will be perfect and free from sin. We will not be 'shining' brighter nor lesser than anyone because we are all equal in the Lord's eyes. It says in Matthew 20 - 28 And Jesus said unto them,Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. 30 But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first. We are all equal. _______________________ Many folk have improperly 'translated' 1 Corinthians 15 in such a way as to make it look like we will all shine in differing degrees. That's ridiculous.
  8. I once read this - 'America is always mentioned to exist in the scriptures, and most of Israel lives in it's land - JerUSAlem.' I thought it clever.
  9. No, I did need to write it a bit more clearly. Sometimes I'm not too fleet a foot in words.
  10. The "not so 'lead by the Spirit'..." part is in quotes, like lead by the Charasmatic type of Spirit - know what I mean? Some people think you can 'just know' what is right without any source, without any source from sciptural support.
  11. Real spiritual discernment comes from having the mind of Christ within us - through the memories of what the Bible actually says in physical words on the pages of the scriptures - and having enough of his word in our minds to 'know better' when a subject comes up. We hide his word in our hearts, through the leading of his Holy Spirit, and will be lead into all truth because God gave us the words of knowledge in the written word of God to see his doctrine clearly. It's not as 'spiritual' as some may think - and not so 'lead by the Spirit' either - but the Lord expects us to use our mind of deduction to 'prove all things' from the words on the printed page. Hope I expressed it correct enough.
  12. Using Windows 10, since it was introduced. Way too much conspiracy people. It's just a system to improve the functionality of the programs that are too powerful for older systems. They're not gonna 'git us'. This is where fear takes you - everything is anti-christ - and your fear overtakes your sense of focus - and supports all the propaganda put out by fear mongers who want you to purchase their books on end time events and strategy. Making us focus on the 'getting ready' for big brother to come get us and make war with the saints. Eric should be loving this. The blind leading...the sighted?? The Lord Jesus never planned as some who teach fear of the end times - he just focused on the purpose at hand - getting the gospel out to the lost - and sacrificing himself to do that. If we need to sacrifice our lives by using the system to get to the lost - so be it. Use what you think is evil for good. Accept any cross. Fear not. It's not Windows 10 that is the problem - it's listening to people pushing 'rights' that ought to be feared, because when we listen to them we aren't listening to the past. The disciples would be quite disappointed in us. This is just my opinion by the way.
  13. Sorry - that was differences between the KJB and Geneva.
  14. Punctuation only or word differences included? I did the book of Romans a few years ago. I will look in my old brief case and find out the diffs later. I didn't look at punctuation, just word differences and meaning.
  15. Does this have anything to do with this thread or is this just an 'ad' to read your study?
