Can someone please answer this piece of scripture concerning purgatory…any ideas or thoughts? It’s apart of another thread, but no one answered and I’m curious to know since I do not have an explanation. Thanks for reading.
I’ve only got time for Zech right now.
“…In the whole land,” declares the LORD,
"two-thirds will be struck down and perish;
yet one-third will be left in it.
9 This third I will bring into the fire;…"
My interpretation of this scripture is that it’s talking about Israel. The Lord says that he will strike doen 2/3 of the people and 1/3 will be left. Then he will take them into the “fire” for purification. It’s my understanding that these 1/3 will be alive and left on the land. Does that mean they will go to purgatory without dying?
I will address 1 Cor and the previous post tomorrow after school.
