    You’re missing the point of the parable through an inadequate exegesis of the text.

    No I am not. I have explained this parable earlier in the thread.

    Your explanation is faulty.

    I believe it is this: Rev. 5:14 I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

    I believe I am washed in the blood of the Lamb, so I believe I am clothed in righteousness.

    I believe I have trouble getting my head around this. Can you substantiate any of it?

    Ok, I think that is different matter. It speaks what will happen to those who are righteous when they are raised while the parable is more about what kind of people will be raised.

    It says:

    50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.


    51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

    52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

    53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

    55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?

    First i want you to see here that saul paul who said all men must die, and then the judgement, says here that not all will sleep...

    Second that the flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom. Flesh and blood is mortality.
    Neither does corruption inherit incorruption. The corruption is the blood cell system.

    It says that immortality must be put on. Its not an inheritance.

    This is not different, this is the wedding garment. Those that didn't sleep were at the wedding. Those that slept, were not at the wedding, or kicked out of the wedding. The reason is because they were mortal so they could not inherit immortality. But that they must die and then wait for the resurrection... And its not even the resurrection that is the path to life... The body resurrected still must be quickened by the Spirit. That "Quickened by the Spirit" is transfiguration.

    Correct. Now connect this with Isaiah 1:18

    18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

    having their robes washed and made them white in the blood of the lamb is not really explaining it well. The wedding garment is this, but red Isaiah is speaking of is the blood. The very blood cell system; the Psuche cell system; is the sin nature; the whole issue. It is the cell system that makes us mortals. And this is even what scientistis are discovering today.

    The Blood of the lamb was also not explained well. It has made the people think that the very blood of Jesus HIs Pre-Eminence that was spilled on the cross is the one that washes you clean. But let us reason together... If that blood is red as ours, how can it make us white as wool? The white is speaking of light; the glory raiment; the shekinah glory which is given by the "incorruptible seed".

    We must be reborn of the incorruptible seed.

    You see, the people back then did not have knowledge of cell systems and genetics. They were far from being able to understand it. GOD has been teaching it since Enoch. And Enoch transfigured in life. Enoch put on his wedding garment in life without dying at all. Elijah also did, and he had an eye witness unlike Enoch, for Elisha followed him. That means that these two Prophets did something amazing - the few that found the path to life as spoken by Jesus His Pre-Eminence....

    Matthew 7
    13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

    14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

    This parable must be understood; it is imperative to know what Jesus His Pre-Eminence is preaching. HE preached the gospel of everlasting life. Somewhere along the way, it has made the church think it begins after death. I ask you, reasoning together you and I... Death was called the last enemy to be destroyed... How can death, your enemy, lead you to life?

    This that Jesus His Pre-Eminence spoke of, revealed that the broad way, is dying and waiting for resurrection. The destruction is speaking of their body that died, that must be restored again at the resurrection.. While those that found the path to life are those that did not die at all, but immortalilsed their physical body in life unto transfiguration.

    This is the true message of "being born again"... The mystery of transfiguration is coming out today which is why I can even share this at all. The rebirth is pointing to the physical body that is earthy, that is born of water; born of a woman... Being born of the Spirit is being born of the Words of GOD that when eaten and assimilated; when the messages which are Eucharisitic, the hidden Manna, the bread of life is eaten, it can hatch the incorrutible seed in your body, which is actually the cell system for immortals.

    This is what the very life of Jacob was pointing to; Jacob being called "the supplanter", that supplanted his biological brother, Esau. Jacob is pointing to that blood cell system thatmust supplant the former. The GOD that can resurrect the dead, can immortalise the living, and that is what resurrection means... Raise or erection (resurrection)...

    Life and death I put before you, choose life. Transfiguration in life, or resurrection from the dead I put before you.... Choose transfiguration in life.

    This all may be too high for you to understand for now, but that is only because the natural mind is a hindrance. This is the message of the Spirit to the churches, that is why it is the Spirit that can receive it, not the body. For the Spirit being is immortal. While the body is mortal. It is very difficult for a mortal man to believe he can live and not die, by putting on immortality. But for the Spirit it is natural; because the Spirit cannot die.
