What does Luke 19:27 mean?

  1. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me
    Luke 19:27

    Before this, Jesus was giving the parable with the three servants who were told to make profit off the money that the king gave them, and one of them dug the money into the ground. The king then told that servant to give that money to the servant who made the most money. But then Jesus says that. What does that mean? I thought that it was talking about how unbelievers will burn in the lake of fire under the watch of Jesus, as revelation says. But I might be wrong.

    Here is some context:

    Luke 19:11-27

    11 And as they heard these things, he added and spake a parable, because he was nigh to Jerusalem, and because they thought that the kingdom of God should immediately appear.

    12 He said therefore, A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return.

    13 And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

    14 But his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us.

    15 And it came to pass, that when he was returned, having received the kingdom, then he commanded these servants to be called unto him, to whom he had given the money, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

    16 Then came the first, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained ten pounds.

    17 And he said unto him, Well, thou good servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

    18 And the second came, saying, Lord, thy pound hath gained five pounds.

    19 And he said likewise to him, Be thou also over five cities.

    20 And another came, saying, Lord, behold, here is thy pound, which I have kept laid up in a napkin:

    21 For I feared thee, because thou art an austere man: thou takest up that thou layedst not down, and reapest that thou didst not sow.

    22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

    23 Wherefore then gavest not thou my money into the bank, that at my coming I might have required mine own with usury?

    24 And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

    25 (And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

    26 For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

    27 But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
     
  2. I think you're right. The enemies would really be those in opposition to the authority of Christ. There'll come a time when "... His enemies [will] be set for the footstool of His feet." (Hebrews 10:13). Final judgement will come upon them, they'll appear before the great white throne (Revelation 20:11), and consignment to the lake of fire will be the end of the matter.
