04/15/19 – Luke 17:11-37; Psalm 84:1-12; Proverbs 13:5-6

Luke 17:   34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.” [36]   37 “Where, Lord?” they asked.  He replied, “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.

Today’s reading brings another of the verses I read and then have to research.  Of verse 37 Coffman writes:

In all probability, this refers to the body of mankind, at last completely dead in sin, demanding by their sins and rebellion against God that the final judgment be executed upon them; just as a dead body would draw vultures, so humanity that is morally dead will inevitably draw the judgment of God upon them. “As surely as a carcass draws birds of prey, so sin would draw judgment, and there would the Messiah be found.”

    It seems to me this statement is also related to Jesus description of the Kingdom of heaven. Even the religious leaders were looking for it, they wanted to be a part of it. God was saying the Kingdom of heaven will be where He rules and the sign of His rule will be changed lives. It’s not a place, it’s a heart condition and God’s judgement will make the decision whether one is taken an another left.
