#1 In Matt 25 there is NO resurrection.
#2 The people judged are LIVING NATIONS.
#3 The time is the return of Christ.
#4 The scene is on the earth.
#5 No books are opened.
#6 The test is how they TREATED the Jews during the GREAT TRIBULATION and Matt 25:35-46 was the TEST.
Dan you do not know how to dialogue with any, all you do is make statements that are unsupported by scriptures, which means they are against the testimony of God.
For your information the resurrection (the second coming and the resurrection of the dead are one and the same, just in case you do not know this) occurred earlier in The discourse of Matthew 24 and
unlike Revelation 20 where it is mentioned at the last!
At the resurrection on the last day, ALL NATIONS WILL BE LIVING, since there will be a RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD, so your point of this is moot.
Also, EARTH will be the battle of Armageddon when Christ returns and the place of the final judgment and the place where the lake of fire will be
. So, again, your point is moot.
Oh, sir, the books will be there since Christ is pointing out the deeds of both the righteous and unrighteous, for you to assume
there are no books there does not prove your position in the least. The test is how they treated Christ's people
which were NOT the Jews, for they rejected him as a nation
. The Jews are not even on Christ's mind in the Olivet Discourse of Matthew 24,25. Give proof they are, which you have not even attempted to do.
Your whole system is built upon assumption and wishful thinking
put into your heart by false prophets.
