If it could really happen that Jesus would do such a thing, I really don't know how I would react. But you say you love Him would you let Hin in?

Eric. I like to think that the condition of our homes reflect the condition of the heart. If He not is not received in one's home, then how can He ever reach one's heart.
Cam, I hope the point is that you would let me in. You would see me for the poor deranged hopeless man and wash my feet. I do not say that lightly. But from time to time there are GOOD men. Your great ancestors probably owned that stable.
Eric, If you showed up on my doorstep, I'd kill the fatted calf, wash your feet and have a big party to celebrate the occasion. As for my ancestors, two generations back on my mother's side was the Klan. On my Dad's side, a politician, enough said.
Wonderful. Cam I just may show up!
My door we lock for some reason like female security issues but a decent pounding will let you in to be annoyed at our insistent inquisitiveness, and forcing of food.
Eric- I don't know if I would go so far as to offer to kill a fatted calf and wash your feet, but I would offer you a cup of coffee and give you clean pair of socks.
graceinus, a clean pair of socks, very funny :)
cam8510- I meant it in a good way. I hope you're not offended.
I like the clean pair of socks idea. I might somehow get it into our churches yearly foot washing activities. Besides I need some.
Eric- What size are your feet? I hope their not like mine. My left is a size 9 and the right a size 6 1/2.
graceinus, not offended at all. In fact I'm still laughing.
sorry eric bible says there are no "good " men .. opinion instead of scripture again. Matt 19:17 So He said to him, "Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God.
Wow Celafoe! That is the most literal translation of anything in the bible I have ever heard.
I am sorry for this off scripture notion. Does that mean men can be Great, I find no restriction on that?
I have calf and clean socks for you.
peeples- In this day and age I can understand your answer. However, I thought my question implied If Jesus really did show up at your front door. But I guess you didn't take it that way. Thanks for your answer.
I believe that if Jesus was real he was just another missionary. So I would treat him the same as the Mormons who knock on my door.
Thank you for your answer
Yes like the question states, IF Jesus really did show up and as for false prophecies, I think they are easy to spot if you have faith in God.
Great answer ii3rittles, thanks.
Now that's what I call an answer.
Right On! That is what I call loving your neighbor.
Now how about the enemy with bad intent. Well the Pharisees and the people of his own home town, they pretty much thought Christ had bad intentions.
If Christ was there to condemn you????
Tx- On the every remote chance that my question would ever "really happen" you would ask for His ID?
First I would have to recover from the shock that He is standing at my front dooor, then I would follow up with everything you just said. Many thanks Rayne123
I have an honest question. 2nd coming has 2parts. For christians 1st then w/ christians to reign. The world will be destroyed by fire, mass death, blood running in the streets. You look forward to this? Can't wait for it? Please explain.
I have to add to my comment. I think with fairness to the question that we all know this is Jesus, the question is to let him in or not. In the real world we still all know when it is Jesus. We all will eye him.
Larry Wall- If Jesus were to show up at my front door, my heart would tell my if it was Him or not. Thanks for your answer. Blessings.
