    Hi Leon.

    Was reading, 1 Peter 4 and verses 17&18 puzzled me. “because it’s time for judgment to begin with God’s own household. But if judgment starts with us, what will happen to those who refuse to believe God’s good news? If the righteous are barely rescued, what will happen to the godless and sinful?”

    Do you know what this judgement is about? What does Peter mean by “the righteous are barely rescued?”

    Cheers.

    • Hi Nwa,
      Thank you for your comments and questions. I think when Peter is speaking about judgment beginning with the house of God, he is indicating that God’s children are the first to be raised in the resurrection, and the first to be judged. All those that have accepted Jesus sacrifice for their sins are judged to be righteous. Romans 4:5 5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness. So Paul here says the ungodly are justified through faith in Jesus, no one can meet God’s high standards, but Jesus met them for us. Peter goes on to say the righteous are barley rescued. I see that Peter in many of the previous verses is talking about Christian persecution. The verse following this he also mentions those that suffer in this life. Maybe he is referring to this suffering, that a Christian may have to endure for the Gospel. I wrestle with scriptures and can’t always make sense of each nugget, but the overall message is always God’s love for us, and the wonderful sacrifice Jesus made on our behalf.

    • Hi Tami,

      Thanks again for checking out my site, and for catching my error in the header, I have corrected it.

  3. Hi Leon, new to your blog – interesting and meaty!
    Have another text correction for you! This page when introducing yourself, you can delete the beginning sentence “This page is titled About …”
    Do you distinguish between the earthly mission of Jesus and the ministry He gave the Apostle Paul, as the Risen Lord?
    Some think that the Kingdom Gospel is the same as the Gospel of Grace and mix them together which goes against 1 Tim 2:15 and Paul warns against: Gal 16-7 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
    Just wondering, Thanks!

    • Hi, Thank you for your comments. I am going to change the About page, good point. I think Paul is speaking about the Good News that we are saved by grace, and not works. Believing that Jesus was made sin for us, gives us eternal life In his Kingdom. Jesus seems to be trying to get the point across to his disciples, that we can live in that Kingdom now, if we could only believe.
