Understood. Hope all is well with you and yours :)<quoted text>Thank you. And it's nice to be back, although my "return" and contributions won't be as often. Access online has become quite limited. But, anywho...
You keep saying that about the temple. But to believe that I have to ignore what Ezekiel said. Thats what I meant by "it doesnt touch" what we were discussing. It doesnt address why Ezekiel prophesied about a LITERAL temple that hasnt been here yet.<quoted text>If you examine them thoroughly, you'll realize that they do.
Returning to the discussion as to how certain and specific precepts of the old covenant became fulfilled, prompting the beginning of the new covenant, you'll realize how that a constructing of another, literal temple is not part of the most High's plan. My reason for posting what I did was to show how that Moses and the prophets prophesied of the most High's plan, and the role my anointed Savior impersonated in order to fulfill the most High's will.
Your belief in the temple not existing again, contradicts Ezekiel. Thats why a time ago I asked you if I could bring SPECIFIC verses from Ezekiel so you could explain why it wasnt a literal temple, why it didnt apply to the TEMPLE after Ezekiel, and why its not referring to a future temple. All your beliefs are ignoring that FACT that Ezekiel prophesied about a temple where God would dwell with His people again FOREVER. Its either a true prophecy or a false one. Not one where we run to Paul to have him explain why Ezekiel didnt mean what he seemed to mean.Allow me to say this. please and if you will. First, Satan is the most subtle and deceptive of all creation. But, secondly and more now than any other time in history, people are researching most thoroughly the prophecies of the Bible. Many already await the appearance of the lawless one and expect him to exalt himself, and to sit in some temple as if he were Father "God." Of a surety, such a pretentious display will not gather many followers when so many are already preparing the so-called "Christian" world for his rise to infamy. But, for those that believe that the most High will allow for another, literal temple to be erected and as they wait, the son of perdition will be rising to prominence in the temple not built with hands. The wheat and the tares will, indeed, grow together until the harvest.
As well, the "new covenant" is simple according to Jeremiah. The law will be written on ISRAEL and JUDAH'S hearts (and those gathered with them). They will not have to teach each other about God and His law, but EACH ONE will know God least to greatest. Thats what Jeremiah 31 states. All the extra stuff (such as the law being abolished and not to be followed anymore for an example that some christians say) is from the words of men.
