Matthew Lesson 25 Day 5

Matthew 24–25 Review

12. Matthew 24

Jesus carefully answered questions about the end of the age which included the destruction of the temple and the hypocrites who controlled it. He was unwilling to see his Bride perish in the famine, murderous rampage, or inferno.

13. Matthew 25

Matthew 25:10—There will be a wedding feast behind closed doors for the guests who are ready when the bridegroom arrives.

Matthew 25:21,23—The righteous will be rewarded with more honor, more joy, and a promotion for their faithfulness.

Matthew 25:34—We will receive as heirs. We will inherit the kingdom prepared for us by our heavenly Father.

Similarities in the three parables:

  • Look forward with great anticipation to the return of our bridegroom.
  • Lay up rewards and treasures in heaven by ministering to those who need a physical representation of God’s love. By so doing, we are ministering to Jesus.
  • Intercede for and reach out to as many as possible so that they too will not perish but have eternal life.

Hell was not prepared for human beings. Heaven was.  God made every provision necessary for us to enjoy eternal life with Him. He beckons us to come to Him—all who are weary and heavy-laden, and He will give us rest. (Matthew 11:28)

Jesus’ judgment is right because it is based on inward reality, not outward appearances. We must develop a right relationship.

14. Personal

Whenever I read passages about judgment, I’m tempted to feel condemned and unworthy. However—No One is worthy. That’s why Jesus came, taught, fed, and healed the sick, suffered, died, and resurrected conquering death. He is worthy. . .that’s why we praise Him!
