According to the Bible, these three groups of people first welcomed Jesus when He came to the earth as a new-born baby: (1) shepherds living out in the fields, (2) devout man Simeon and old prophetess Anna in the temple of Jerusalem and (3) a few Magi who traveled a long way from the east.
Likewise, there were also three types of people who first showed their hostility, indifference and being disturbed: (1) King Herod as the Antichrist, (2) priests and scribes as Falsechrists, and (3) “all Jerusalem” that was greatly disturbed upon hearing the news of His birth.
Thus we can foresee that, when the mankind enters into a special time interval shortly before His second coming, only three groups of people are willing and able to know and accept all the truths about the Day of the Lord. These three groups are: (1) disciples who have been carrying their own crosses all the way and have already turned their attentions from Christianity to Christ, (2) servants and maidservants who have always focused on the Lord from the beginning to the end, and (3) truth-seeking “gentiles” especially those who are fruited in the cultural study of the east.
On the other hand, three types of people express hostility, irony and doubt towards the Lord’s second coming: (1) political rulers who have common interests with the Devil, (2) religious figures who cannot resist being attempted by fame, money and status and (3) curiocity seekers who are ignorant themselves and tremble with fear at the sound of every moving bush and tree.
This becomes an invisible boundary separating “enemies” from “friends” at the last stage of end times. History does repeat in principles.
