Pastor Peter J. Foxx of Calvary Bible Church in Columbus preached a message from this passage yesterday morning. Our family happened to be in the area and were privileged to hear this exposition of the passage. I found what Pastor Foxx referred to as his “introduction to next week’s message” to be quite interesting, including the following statement:
A man’s word is not enough for entrance into God’s kingdom; there has to be evidence.
Here are a few thoughts I scribbled down during the message:
- This message is referring to how people treat the Jews during the Tribulation.
- The purpose of this judgment is to determine which survivors will enter the Millennial kingdom.
- This message correlates with James 2:14-26.
