“But as for these enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, bring them here and slaughter them before me.”
(Luke 19:27 ESV)
Just another Anti-Christ propaganda found on Facebook!
There are those who now want to target the Body of Christ with vengeance…targeting those who love Jesus….and also those who do not yet know Him.
They will deceive and twist… under the complete control of the deceiver….
Only hoping to break down those who have placed their trust in Christ.
And also mislead those who are yet wandering and lost.
The verse is part of a parable (story) that Jesus taught….This story that Jesus taught teaches about the judgement of God at this point….It does not suggest or imply that human governance should even follow this example. Christ uses what could and often did happen to illustrate a point of Gods supreme governance!
His disciples were not a military group…in fact the overwhelming majority (excluding John) were slaughtered for their faith in Christ…. They were not equipped to fight or make war.
Jesus did NOT command His disciples to kill anyone….
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgement”….. (Matthew 5: 21.22)
“But love your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for nothing again, and your reward shall be great”… (Matthew 22: 37-40)
“A new commandment I give unto you, that you love one another as I have loved you that you also love one another”… (John 13:34)
This verse has nothing to do with an individual turning the other check!
Jesus is teaching that mankind will one day face the judgement of God….
Those such as these people who post on Facebook and elsewhere… and who only intently want to discourage those who have placed their trust in Christ….
Those such as these…
Who hate and have rejected The Christ…..the One and Only One…..
God will punish…..
GOD WILL PUNISH
Yet there is still time……time also for you.
Time for all those who do not believe………
Time for those who continue to mock and denounce….
Time awaits for those who still deny and reject…..
Our One and Only Lord and Savior.
“In blazing fire, He will inflict vengeance on those who do not know God and do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.”
(2 Thessalonians 1:8)
