“And these enemies of mine who were unwilling for me to rule over them, bring them here and slay them in front of me.’”
Pacifist? Pull the other one!
It’s called righteousness. Judging people is totally fine…if you’re applying the Word and follow it yourself. That isn’t hypocritical at all. Enforcing The Law doesn’t make you bad.. it’s still the criminal.
Do the crime, do the time. Sleep with someone’s wife, blaspheme etc… death.
This puts the previous line into a logical place. Materialists are shallow and misinterpret, it’s an old style of writing.
“I tell you that everyone who has will be given more; but the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him”
The guy with the most Ikea furniture doesn’t win.
What you think you have is a loan by Grace and if you continue to err, it will be taken away. Faith is the one thing you have – or don’t. You will be rewarded or punished based on what you do now.
The epitome of just.
They didn’t believe Jesus would save them from a bad death so he’s giving them what they wanted. It’s an old sense of humour. “Well, if you insist…” would be the closest idea we have today. They wanted to be with their false God and didn’t believe in Him, so Jesus is advocating we reunite them sooner than planned. Because as we know, the only false God is Satan. They want Hell, give them what they desire.
We don’t take that devil-may-care attitude to the stupid now, and it’s a shame.
Instead we let them corrupt and ruin others while selling recordings of them falling down for Ow! My Balls! Jesus didn’t seem to advocate letting any Fifth Column bullshit go on behind his back.
Unless you’re going to claim he told stories for no reason.
Compare with a re-reading of Rev. I was told about this and it’s there.
Usury is the invisible theft, the most evil act. It even enslaves Kings. Men die for debt, kill for it, and every other sin is enabled in its vice as we have ample evidence now. The famine of the world is caused by usury.
Proof or it didn’t happen, right?
“Then I heard what sounded like a voice among the four living creatures, saying, “Two pounds of wheat for a day’s wages, and six pounds of barley for a day’s wages, and do not damage the oil and the wine!”
Inflation, my old friend… barely anything to live on.
Why mention it there, in the context of global famine and death? Hyperinflation post usury. Compared to a century ago, our currencies are hyperinflated. Compared to two, we’re living on the breadline if compared to where we hypothetically should be since then, living like Kings.
The famine of Revelations was caused by usurious practices in the economy!
Otherwise, how else or who else is doing the stealing, via the value of money?
