So, when Israel looks on Him whom they have pierced, mourns for Him as an only Son in the words of Zechariah 12:10 and comes to understand what they have done, and repents and returns to God, a fountain of cleansing will be open to them from God (Zechariah 13:1), and THEN God will send Jesus Christ. KJV Luke 17:17 And Jesus answering said, Were there not ten cleansed? 2:46; Lk. It then came to mean any stumbling-block placed in the way to trip somebody up.

There are thousands of ways to please the Lord, but not one of those ways is without faith. 23:40, Cleon Rogers says that epitimao "has the nuance of a frank, but gentle admonition: politely tell him that he is wrong. ", NIDNTT writes of the root word eleos that in classical Greek -- It is “the emotion roused by contact with an affliction which comes undeservedly on someone else”, The phrase have mercy is found 15x in 14v in the NT and is predominantly in the Gospels, most often a request directed to Jesus usually asking for Jesus to heal them. Spurgeon - Leprosy was very common in Palestine in Christ’s day. Daniel records the following prophecy he received from the angel Gabriel in answer to fervent prayer…, And he (the Antichrist) will make a firm covenant with the many (the Jews/Israel) for one week (one seven year period), but in the middle of the week (after 3.5 years) he will put a stop to sacrifice and grain offering (in the rebuilt Jewish temple) and on the wing of abominations will come one who makes desolate, even until a complete destruction, one that is decreed, is poured out on the one who makes desolate." And when the Church is raptured, this event will almost certainly initiate the events of the Tribulation or Daniel's Seventieth Week. And Moses affirms this presumption, recording that "He shall live alone; his dwelling shall be outside the camp." In the Olivet Discourse, Jesus warns the world (those who have ears to hear!) KJV And will not rather say unto him, Make ready wherewith I may sup, and gird thyself, and serve me, till I have eaten and drunken; and afterward thou shalt eat and drink? Our text makes it clear that the world will not be converted when Jesus returns. Please, let me escape there (is it not small?)

Cleansed is aorist tense (signifying this occurred at a point in time ~ instantaneous) and passive voice (the divine passive - the power to cleanse came from God, from Jesus Who is God). Notice that with the phrase "until the kingdom of God comes" is a clear reference to the future visible reign of King Jesus. 19“It is like a mustard seed, which a man took and threw into his own garden; and it grew and became a tree, and THE BIRDS OF THE AIR NESTED IN ITS BRANCHES.”.

Jesus’ Coming Will Be Revealing In Nature (Luke 17:31-33) Comment: Jesus is referring to Peter, John, and James, who would witness the transfiguration (but not everyone agrees with this interpretation but the context favors the transfiguration which follows immediately Lk 9:28-36), which would be a "preview of coming attractions," so to speak. The Lord now turns to His disciples. What can we deserve of the dear hands of him who bought us with his blood?

Some people make the mistake of asking the Lord for faith and direction, and then they grab the steering wheel of their life. OF JESUS' SECOND COMING, It will be just the same - Life will go on as usual (apathy and indifference to the things of eternity because they are so focused on the temporal "stuff" that will vanish, including even their lusts, 1 Jn 2:17-note, etc. The Lord make us wholly holy for Christ’s sake! 79–90), and chiefly base their conclusions upon this passage misinterpreted, as illustrated e.g. Reign of Christ “Command the sons of Israel that they send away from the camp every leper and everyone having a discharge and everyone who is unclean because of a dead person. 13:24; Lk. We are required to be perfect (Matt. (2) The Days of the Son of Man (Lk 17:22-37), Four Hallmarks of Humility (Luke 17:1-10), Humble People Refrain From Offending Others. He loves you so much He wants you to be satisfied. On the other hand, we must recognize that faith is not a magic by which we control God. Our best service does not bring gain to God and give us a claim on him (cf. 32 “All the nations (ALL THAT HAVE SURVIVED THE GREAT TRIBULATION) will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats (THIS SEPARATION IS DESCRIBE IN Lk 17:31-32 BELOW); 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left. 5, to a hope of a crown, Revelation 3:11; 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. or, lo there! Who were the 70 (or 72) disciples in Luke 10? Comment: Notice that "the kingdom of God" is the main theme of Jesus' preaching. When I think about the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, I don’t want to engage myself in some selfish thinking about the fact that I am going to be there to see the novelty of what the world is like when that happens.

Observe how it had been with sinners formerly, and in what state the judgments of God, which they had been warned of, found them. And, dear friends, that is always the best thing to do. In Luke 13:24 zeteo is used in a negative sense where Jesus calls on men to “Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter (Lk 13:28 tells us what they are seeking to enter - "the kingdom of God") and will not be able." Zeteo is used in a good sense in Lk. But I want you to go back to Acts 3:25 and notice that it does not say, “It is you who are the sons of the prophets and WERE the sons of the covenant.” It says, “You ARE (present tense) the sons of the prophet and of the covenant.” It is an irrevocable covenant. Her life! When Jesus described the events that will surround His second coming, He said, “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man. Luke 17:5-10. In light of the context, where Noah, Lot, the one on the housetop, and the one in the field all escape judgment by fleeing, whereas those left behind die and are prey for vultures (Lk 17:37), probably those taken go to safety whereas those left are overtaken by God’s judgment. .

Isaiah writes: How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who proclaims peace, who brings glad tidings of good things, who proclaims salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” Your watchmen shall lift up their voices, with their voices they shall sing together; for they shall see eye to eye when the LORD brings back Zion. They do not have to be taught to pin the blame on their brother or sister. So, how do we know when to bear with someone’s sin and when to rebuke it?

The delay is to them ample evidence that it never will be witnessed. Spiritual maturity can be defined in those terms. It is also worth appreciating the context for Isaiah 53, which names what the suffering servant will bring with him: peace, joy, salvation, and the rule of God. It is not an intellectual decision but a change of mind that issues in a change of behavior. The Jews in general were looking for the Kingdom of God.

It’s just exactly what Jesus said in Luke 9:23–25-note,"If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must (AN OBLIGATION, NECESSITY TO) deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. But bound by his theory to find the spiritual Kingdom he apprehends it in the preceding phrase, which he renders “the Kingdom of God cometh not with outward show (cannot be outwardly seen by human eyes), and in a note adds: “The antithesis is, that it reveals itself invisibly, so as to be seen only by the eye of faith.” He afterward forgets and contradicts his own definition of this Kingdom, making it in the course of development a real, outward, visible world-dominion.
