Jesus died for the whole world, not just certain people.
The only evidence needed by a true follower of Christ to see others is just simply by their works their fruit will be shown if any fruit should even be bared. But for me I try not to judge at all if possible because I myself was once one of the worst kinds of sinners satanic to the core, deep in black magic, drugs, crime, etc dark times but my flesh was extremely happier back then lol... I died during a ritual and that's when I truly experienced God's true love and how special us humans truly are. It took me being dead 7 and a half minutes to get it right lol, who am I to say anything of anyone regardless where they are in their walk. Hell I'am just thankful God loved me enough to spare me from hell back then because if God didn't intervene when I died I WOULD BE IN HELL NOW, so thank you God for my creation and everyone else. Long story short the only thing we should truly worry about is our standing with God and Jesus Christ Amen and God Bless.
Luke's writing of the disciples' meeting the risen Lord on the road to Emmaus also points to Real Presence in the Eucharist. The Lord took the bread, blessed it, broke it and then gave it to them , at which point they then recognized Him.
I hope they show up here and now because the bride is here, the government of the Kingdom of God under the administration of Christ, the church of Jesus, and we are in the end-time, since the church was created, the age of the opening up to the gentiles into the kingdom.
. . . save a drink for every ATS member for the wedding . . .
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
The change from bread and wine, into The Body and Blood of Christ(transubstantiation) is of course a complete mystery, we will never fully understand.
One of the first things I learned as a young Catholic Christian, "He is God, and I am NOT".
Because there are teachings I don't fully understand, doesn't mean I simply abandon them, or dream up an explanation that fits my worldly, fallen nature.

Thats the beakuty of the magesterium of The Roman Catholic Church. The Church founded by Jesus, by giving the keys to Peter. The mystical Body of Christ
St Paul called baptised followers of Jesus saints because of their sanctifying grace, and depth of belief. But he didnt mean it in the same way we say it today.

It took no physical work for Rahab to recieve the messagers that was simply an dangerous act she preformed based on faith in God. Choosing to trust in Christ is the only work God requires. Christ is the root of all Good works because all good works are done with faith in Him in mind.

He didn't mean it in the way you guys do, I'll stick with the Biblical model. All born-again believers are saints of the Most High. I don't see a problem in using the terminology the Bible uses.
The claim 'Son of God' is a pagan term going back to the flood and solar worship of Christmas and Easter.
