    • Does that mean we don't need preachers anymore?  The Bible has all we need?  
    • Ha, that it may be. Surely, if you say so it most be so, but really  I am  a work in progress, pilgrim. God does not let me rest on my own laurels for long. In fact he tends to kick fanny, often mine.
    • A number of years ago, I took a look at that passage and wondered the same thing.   I remember sitting there and asking myself, what if Jesus was literally talking about our jobs and money?   Could I really justify playing it safe at working 40+ hours/week (where a big corporation was reaping the profits of my labor) to pay the bills and save a bit away and doing the same-old same-old ministries at church for the rest of my life with leftovers of my time and energy. As I see it, money is merely a tool for conversion of our time into other things.  Being wise about using that tool effectively and efficiently can allow us to do much good with our lives and have more freedom and liberty to serve Christ.  Money and capital that is invested well can yield a passive income stream (theoretical for me at this point  ) that can be used for ministry and giving and giving us even more free time.      
    • This is true .   men are infallible and thus all men must always be tested .  even paul knew he should be tested .  everyone must be . for any man can fail ,  but GOD, HIS WORD and words are infallible  , always the foundation IS the lamb and his sayings which the apostels built upon . we have got to start afresh .    I cannot even begin to number the false teachings or teachings in christanity.   all must be tested But if we continue to take advice from carnal wise men , we wont make it .  my advice to all,  START over , pray and ask for a heart pleasing to GOD ask for truth , love it and embrace it ,  ask and you will reiceve .  BUT GET JESUS WORDS engrained SO we know what to ask for and what not to seek after . Stop worrying about material things and focus on the true treasure .  and if one has worry,  TAKE IT TO GOD and ask for a heart that only follows and trusts HIM HIS EVERY SAYING ,   and HE WILL HEAR .    GOD will answer any prayer that is according to his will.   DO we think its Gods will that we continue in sin.  NOPE,   IF WE CRY FOR HELP    ,   To cease the evil and do good  ,  HE IS AND WILL HEAR THAT PRAYER IT IS HIS WILL WE WALK as CHILDREN of LIGHT , not of darkness.  STOP believing pastors who say we cannot cease from evil AND instead start crying unto the ONE WHO DESIRES we DO CEASE from evil   .     AND HE WILL HEAR.  I am pointing us towards THE ONE WHO IS ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS .  
    • I believe Jesus is returning to reign over the earth because the New Testament prophets say so. 
       
      1) Peter
       Acts 3:21 — In his sermon on the portico of Solomon, Peter says Jesus must remain in Heaven "until the period of the restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time." The period of restoration spoken of here will occur during the Millennium when the curse is partially lifted and nature is restored (Romans 8:18-23).
       
       2) Paul
        2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 — Paul says that when Jesus returns "dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel," He will also come for the purpose of being glorified before His saints. The return of Jesus to be glorified before His saints and all the nations of the world is one of the persistent themes of Old Testament prophecy (Isaiah 24:23, Isaiah 52:10,13, Isaiah 61:3, and Psalm 46:10). 
       
      2 Timothy 2:12 — Paul says "if we endure, we shall also reign with Him."
       
      3) John
       Revelation 12:5 — John sees a vision in which a sun clothed woman (Israel) gives birth to a male child (Jesus) "who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron."
       
       Revelation 19:15-16 — In his description of Jesus returning to earth, John says He bears the title, "King of kings and Lord of lords," and John says He will "rule the nations with a rod of iron."
       
      Revelation 20:4,6 — John says that after the return of Jesus to the earth, He will reign with His saints ("those to whom judgment has been given") for a thousand years.
              
      I believe Jesus is returning to earth to reign because the Heavenly Host say so.
       
       1) Gabriel
      Luke 1:26-38 — When the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, he told her that she would bear a son named Jesus who would be called "the Son of the Most High." He then added three promises that are yet to be fulfilled: "the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever; and His kingdom will have no end."

      2) The Four Living Creatures and the 24 Elders
        Revelation 5:9-10 — When John is raptured to Heaven and finds himself standing before the throne of God (Revelation 4), he hears "the four living creatures" (special angelic creatures called seraphim in Isaiah 6) and "the twenty-four elders" (probably representative of the redeemed) singing a song of praise to Jesus. In this song they say that Jesus is a Worthy Lamb who has made His redeemed a kingdom, "and they will reign upon the earth." 

      3) The Angels of God
       Revelation 11:15 — Voices from Heaven make a proleptic proclamation in the midst of the Tribulation: "The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever." (Note: A proleptic statement is one that speaks of a future event as if it has already occurred. This is a common form of expression in prophecy because all future events are settled in the mind of God as if they had already happened in history.)
       
      4) The Tribulation Martyrs
       Revelation 15:3-4 — At the end of the Tribulation, right before the final pouring out of God's wrath in the form of the bowl judgments, all the Tribulation martyrs who are in Heaven join together in singing "the song of Moses... and the song of the Lamb." In that song, they declare the Lamb (Jesus) to be the "King of the nations," and they proclaim that "all the nations will come and worship before Thee."

      I believe Jesus is returning to reign on the earth because Jesus said so.
       
      Matthew 19:28 — Jesus said that during "the regeneration" (the same time as "the period of restoration" referred to by Peter in Acts 3:21), He will "sit on His glorious throne," and the Apostles will join Him in judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
       
      Matthew 25:31 — Jesus said that when He returns in glory, "the Son of Man... will sit on His glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before Him" for judgment. The throne of Jesus is the throne of David which has always been located in only one place — in Jerusalem (see Isaiah 9:6-7and Psalm 122).
       
      Acts 1:3-6 — Luke says that Jesus spent 40 days teaching His disciples about the kingdom of God. Then, as He was ready to ascend into Heaven, one of the disciples asked, "Lord is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" The question indicates that Jesus taught a time would come when the kingdom would be restored to Israel. Jesus' response to the question indicated the same thing. He did not rebuke the question. Rather, He simply said it was not for them to know the times and seasons when the kingdom would be restored to Israel.

       Revelation 2:26-27 — Jesus says that He has a special reward for any "overcomer" who keeps His deeds until the end: "To him I will give authority over the nations; and he shall rule them with a rod of iron."

       Revelation 3:21 — Jesus makes it clear that the overcomers will reign jointly with Him: "He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne." Again, the throne of Jesus is the throne of David (Luke 1:32 and Revelation 3:7). The throne of David is in Jerusalem, not in Heaven (Psalm 122). Jesus currently shares His Father's throne. He is not sitting on His own throne and will not do so until He returns to this earth. Then He will allow the redeemed to share His throne with Him.

      Genesis 2:15-17 New International Version (NIV)
      15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”
      Why is that I focus on the things I am not supposed to do? What I don't have? If only Adam and Eve had turned their attention back to all the things they were free to do.
      There are plenty of things I am free to do that are not sin. I would like to focus more on those things.
