I known I would have to dead before some human vermin could rape my daughter.....so I assumed he raped and killed mom first before he violated her daughter....
He likely bashed all three in the head first, then raped the bodies, which is about the only way he could have done that.
For the Matthew passage:
Jesus is referring to UNBELIEVERS. People who have not accepted Jesus as God. Notice the last line: "I NEVER KNEW YOU." This denotes these "prophesiers," let me think of an example - (Joseph Smith, possibly)are not believers. Heck, even Satan will appear as an angel of light.
It's interesting you bring up Isaiah 59:2 because that's exactly why Jesus came. So we could inherit EVERLASTING life, and not be separated from the Father, God.
Remember Jesus, paid for ALL the sins of believers, actually the sins of the world. Jesus is the bridge over the chasm of sin, over the great "DIVIDE" which brings believers to God.
How can someone or something EVER snatch you out of God's hands? John 10:28
Think about this, at the "first stage" you are saved and not sinning. When you have the Lord and knowingly sin, you should be pained and be in a must worse "STATE" because the Holy Spirit is present reminding you God is sufficient enough to take care of your needs! What a great nagging huh?! It's God saying, "C'mon stop that! You are taken care of, there is no need for this sin anymore to fulfill, you now have ME!"
Our conscience is nagged, much worse when we have the Holy Spirit than when we didn't!
This has nothing to do with losing salvation, because salvation can NOT BE LOST! Salvation is not conditional on what YOU do, but what Christ did. That's why God is so GOOD because we can not save ourselves!
We could debate this until the cows come home, however your interpretation reminds me of a story of a visiting preacher who discovered to his chagrin that not only had he forgotten to shave before he left his small town across the county, he had left his electric razor at home.
Being late on a Saturday afternoon, he asked the hosting preacher who could trim him up and shave him. The local preacher said “this is your lucky day, our choir director Grace runs a hair salon, she’ll be happy to help you out” so the visiting preacher headed over to Grace’s hair salon, where she gave him the best hair cut and shave he had ever experienced, he paid her, tipped generously, and proceeded to give a great sermon the next day that was well received, headed home, end of story.
Except: he noticed after 3 days that his stubble hadn’t even begun to come back in. On Friday, it was still as smooth as the day he was shaved. He called up the preacher he visited and told him of the strange event, and was told with a chuckle “oh c’mon now, you were shaved by Grace, once shaved, ALWAYS shaved!”
Have a good week FRiend.
That’s a great story! Thanks for the engagement, it was a pleasure. Have a splendid week!
