    • Hi Retro, Again we agree on some things & not on others. As this thread is about the WHY, I am not getting into the WHERE. regards, Marilyn.
    • Hi Davida, Thank you for your thoughts. I agree that the Lord will catch away, rapture His Body, but I do not agree that we will return to earth. That would be a good topic for another thread I believe. Marilyn.
    • Hi Ezra, Good scriptures there, bro, telling us what will happen when the Lord comes & we are changed. However as to the WHY, may I suggest - We know that God the Father sends Christ when it is time for the restoration to begin. (Acts 3: 20 & 21) So let`s look at that. What do you think is the first place/rulership that had rebellion & needs restoration? Marilyn.
    • Hi Leonardo Von, Trust you bro to bring up another old thread. These must be topics you like to comment on, ay. Now as to those Feasts I personally cannot see them relating to the Body of Christ in scripture. I do see them, however, in God`s word relating to Israel. For example - the Day of Atonement - Israel`s National Day of repentance & God`s National forgiveness, can be seen to be fulfilled when the Lord comes to Mount Zion on earth, & then goes into Jerusalem to connect, bringing forgiveness to Israel. (Zech. 12: 7 - 10)  God said He would do this - `He will avenge the blood of His servants. & render vengeance to His adversaries; He will provide atonement for His land & His people.` (Deut. 32: 43) Perhaps something to think about. Marilyn.
    • Wheat and tares / goats and sheep Right now , I want to compare the parable of the wheat and tares, with  the parable of the goats and sheep Mat 13:24-30 (24)  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: (25)  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. (26)  But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. (27)  So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? (28)  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up? (29)  But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them. (30)  Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.   Mat 13:36-43 (36)  Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field. (37)  He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; (38)  The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; (39)  The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels. (40)  As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world. (41)  The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; (42)  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. (43)  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.         Mat 25:31-46 (31)  When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: (32)  And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: (33)  And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. (34)  Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: (35)  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: (36)  Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. (37)  Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? (38)  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? (39)  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? (40)  And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. (41)  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: (42)  For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: (43)  I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. (44)  Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? (45)  Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. (46)  And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.     You can see that there are a lot of differences between the parable of the wheat and tares , and the parable of the goats and sheep.     Here are some differences.     Wheat and tares     -The tares are the children of the wicked one, which it will be individuals that will be judged.     -The tares first get gathered at the time of the harvest , which the harvest is the end of the world.     -The tares received their judgment , at the end of the world , which occurs at the end of the millenial reign , and they will be brought before the great white throne of judgment , and will be cast into a furnace of fire , which is the lake of fire.   -After the tares get cast into the lake of fire , at the end of the world (which the earth shall be burnt up , and God shall make a new earth), then shall the wheat be gathered into God’s barn , which they shall shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father , which will be on the new earth. Sheep and goats     -The goats point to nations that as a whole went against God’s ways, which it will be nations that will be judged in this case.   -But the goats get told to depart on his left hand , when all nations are gathered together to him at his second coming , but not at the end of the world.   -The goats receive judgment at Christ’s second coming, and at that time , Christ will rule with a rod of iron, and no doubt , these rebellers of nations , will be executed , thus afterwards , will go into everlasting fire , which is hell here.   -The goats will receive their judgment , be executed and go to hell , but the sheep shall inherit the kingdom , which is during the 1000 year reign of Christ , and they will have life eternal.       These are some of the differences , and the end of the world here in the tares parable , really means the end of the world , and not the end of the age.   Love ya in the Lord.
