Luke 10:30 (c) No doubt these wicked men represent the ungodly world which continually seeks to take away everything we have and return to us nothing but trouble.

  • the world welcomes the prize fighter who is winning, but has no use for him when he is losing.
  • the world loves the company of the rich while he can give, but has no use for him when his riches are gone and he has become poor.
  • the world wants the actress who is vivacious, interesting and beautiful. They have no use for her when the beauty has faded, and her skill has ceased.
  • the world has nothing permanent to give, but is always active in taking what we have. Barabbas was a thief, and he represents this wicked world. CHRIST is a giver, and will always enrich us.

John 10:1 (b) By this picture we see a symbol of the wicked, religious leaders of the world who would take away from GOD's people their peace, their faith, their time and their money by false teachings.

Revelation 3:3 (a) This type is used by the Lord to describe the manner of His coming. It is not a reference to His character, for He is holy and pure. It refers only to the fact that He will come at a time when He is not expected, and in a way that no one understands.
