Mans Eternal Destiny

Jesus said, "He that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame and am set down with my Father in His throne." Matthew 3:21

God seeks that of our own free will we choose to follow Jesus and seek to become like Him. If we do this, soon or late, we will become like Him.  All eternity lies before us, and therefore whatever or however long it has taken us to learn is of less consequence than the fact that once we have chosen to follow Him, we will be paid with the same price-Eternal Life!

God`s Paying
The God`s justice is different with human`s justice, the first man will have the same pay for the last man, cause He pays us with giving His kingdom for us, no matter how long, how many we serve HIM in this world

Why is it OK with God to pay the one who worked all day the same amount paid to the one who worked only an hour?
No matter how late we convert, what counts is the depth of our commitment? and the latest you do the more passionate the work you put in the vineyard. The most grateful? the one who had the greatest debt...of course not to the detriment of those differently blessed for having been laid in a Catholic cradle.

There was no wrong, no one received less than expected. The workers were paid what was agreed. Those hired early, borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat can be compared to early followers of Christ who may have been persecuted, suffered for the Lord, did many great works for the Lord. The last hired who spent one hour and made equal means that any time we can confess our sins, become followers of Christ, be redeemed for the reward of Heaven. It is not for the laborers to decide for the master.

Because God is not like a man who sees the outside but does not see the inside. God compares all workers as one and as if they have done the same task all the day and He is the father of all so all His children all the same in His eyes.

Because we are all equal to God even though some of us might work a little harder or maybe even longer.

It is ok to God be/cos God gave us diffrent destiny but all are working in His vein-yeild. Let me conclude that before God all men are equal be ye Bishop, Reverened, pastor or whatsoever whatsoever. And again all christian are running for one goal, and that is heaven.

Because with God, we all get the same just rewards:death for sinners; and Eternal life for those who accept Christ. It does not matter what sin we commit, as long as we dont take the step to stop and worship God, we get punished.Regardless of what we did in the past, or at waht stage we surrender to god-we go to Heaven as long as we keep the faith.

Because the payment of the story is just like the gift God gives to us in this world. Since it`s a gift, what could you murmur against with?

The Parable of the Workers in the Vineyard

"For the Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who was the master of a household, who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. When he had agreed with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. He went out about the third hour, and saw others standing idle in the marketplace. To them he said, 'You also go into the vineyard, and whatever is right I will give you.' So they went their way. Again he went out about the sixth and the ninth hour, and did likewise. About the eleventh hour he went out, and found others standing idle. He said to them, 'Why do you stand here all day idle?'
"They said to him, 'Because no one has hired us.'
"He said to them, 'You also go into the vineyard, and you will receive whatever is right.' When evening had come, the lord of the vineyard said to his manager, 'Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning from the last to the first.'
"When those who were hired at about the eleventh hour came, they each received a denarius. When the first came, they supposed that they would receive more; and they likewise each received a denarius. When they received it, they murmured against the master of the household, saying, 'These last have spent one hour, and you have made them equal to us, who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat!'
"But he answered one of them, 'Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Didn't you agree with me for a denarius? Take that which is yours, and go your way. It is my desire to give to this last just as much as to you. Isn't it lawful for me to do what I want to with what I own? Or is your eye evil, because I am good?' So the last will be first, and the first last. For many are called, but few are chosen."
