THE EASTERN GATE
 
 
THE EASTERN GATE CLOSED UNTIL MESSIAH RETURNS
According to the Bible; the Messiah would come, go through the Eastern Gate, present Himself officially as King, be rejected by the Jews, the Eastern Gate would then be closed until he returns and is accepted by the Jews.
 
This Eastern Gate is closed today and has been for over a thousand years despite several attempts to reopen it.
 
There are eight major gates to the Old City. The first and most important one is the Golden Gate, or the Eastern Gate, the only external gate that gives access to the Temple Mount.
 
I will provide an excellent video on this subject at the end of the article.
 
THIS IS THE REMARKABLE STORY OF THIS GATE.
God gave Ezekiel a supernatural vision of this gate.
 
 43:1 “Afterward he brought me to the gate, the gate that faces toward the east. And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east“.
 
 43:4; “And the glory of the Lord came into the temple by the way of the gate which faces toward the east.
 
 Ezekiel 44:1-3 “Then He brought me back to the outer gate which faces toward the east, but it was shut. And the Lord said to me, This gate shall be shut; it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter by it, because the Lord God of Israel has entered by it; therefore it shall be shut.
 
HE WEPT OVER IT
 

THE LORD JESUS CAME THROUGH THIS GATE IN HIS TRIUMPHAL ENTRY ON PALM SUNDAY, TO PRESENT HIMSELF AS KING.

Matthew 21 1-5 “Now when they drew near Jerusalem, and came to Bethphage, at the Mount of Olives, then Jesus sent two disciples, saying to them, “Go into the village opposite you, and immediately you will find a donkey tied, and a colt with her. Loose them and bring them to Me.And if anyone says anything to you, you shall say, ‘The Lord has need of them,’ and immediately he will send them.”
All this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:
 “Tell the daughter of Zion,
‘Behold, your King is coming to you,
Lowly, and sitting on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.’”
 
DANIEL HAD PREDICTED THE VERY DAY THIS WOULD HAPPEN. NOW READ CLOSELY.

Daniel 9:25

“Know therefore and understand,
That from the going forth of the command
To restore and build Jerusalem
Until Messiah the Prince,
There shall be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
The street shall be built again, and the wall,
Even in troublesome times.
 
Sixty nine weeks is the Jewish way of saying 483 years. 
 
According to this prophecy, a decree would be issued that would allow the Jews to rebuild the wall. Several decrees were issued concerning the rebuilding of Jerusalem after the captivity but only one concerned the wall. This decree was issued by Artaxerxes and is one of the best known dates in history.
 
Sir Robert Anderson and  Dr. Harold Hoehne have meticulously worked out this prophecy and both conclude that it was fulfilled on the very day Jesus entered Jerusalem, through the Eastern Gate, in His Triumphal Entry, 483 years, to the day, after the decree was made.
SIR ROBERT ANDERSON
 
NOW WATCH WHAT THE LORD TOLD THE JEWS WHO REJECTED HIM
“And when He approached, He saw the city and wept over it, saying,  If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes. … . because you did not recognize the time of your visitation “ (Luke 19:41-42, 44).
 
If they had only kept up with the days predicted by Daniel they would have known that this was the very day of its fulfillment.
Jesus, having entered the city, said that he would not be seen again until Jerusalem acknowledges him (Matthew 23:37-39).
 
THE EASTERN GATE CLOSED UP.

The walls and gates of Jerusalem have been torn down and rebuilt several times. When they were rebuilt, they were rebuilt on the same spots. The Eastern Gate is the  oldest of all the gates to the city and was the only one not rebuilt by Suleiman the Magnificent in AD 1539-42. Monolithic stones in the wall just above ground have been identified as 6th Century BC masonry from the time of Nehemiah, (Biblical Archeological Review [BAR], Mar/Apr 1992, p40).

 
Proof that the Easter Gate is built on the very spot it has always been was found In the year 1969 when Jerusalem archeologist James Fleming was investigating the Eastern wall of the Temple where a Muslim cemetery has long been located. It had rained heavily the night before and the ground remained soggy the next day. As he investigated the area immediately in front of the Golden Gate, the ground beneath his feet gave way and he dropped into a hole about eight feet deep. Fleming found himself “knee-deep in bones” and became suddenly aware he had fallen into a mass burial site. To him, the most amazing aspect of this incident was his clear view of five large wedge-shaped stones set into a massive arch. It appeared he had discovered an ancient gate under the present Golden Gate:
 
“Then I noticed with astonishment that on the eastern face of the turret wall, directly beneath the Golden Gate itself, were five wedge-shaped stones neatly set in a massive arch spanning the turret wall. Here were the remains of an earlier gate to Jerusalem, below the Golden Gate, one that apparently had never been fully documented.” (BAR, Jan./Feb. 1983, p30)
 
ATTEMPTS TO OPEN
In the Six Day War, some members of the Jewish military suggested catching the Jordanian defenders of the city off guard by blowing open the sealed Eastern Gate. But the leader of the group, an Orthodox Jew, had vehemently protested the idea, stating that “the Eastern Gate can be opened only when the Messiah comes.”
 
 In 1917 Muslim leaders in control of Jerusalem tried and failed to break the prophecy and open the gate. On the exact day the workmen were preparing to demolish the ancient stone, the hand of God intervened and the city of Jerusalem passed out of Muslim control into the hands of the British.
 
WHY IT WAS CLOSED UP.
 
 Jewish rabbis describe the Messiah as a great military leader who would be sent by God from the east. He would enter the Eastern Gate and liberate the city from foreign control.
. To prevent this, the Muslims sealed the gate and put a Muslim cemetery in front of it believing that a holy man would not defile himself by walking through a Muslim cemetary.Little did they know, they were fulfilling prophecy by doing this.
 
 
 
 

 WHEN JESUS RETURNS HE WILL GO THROUGH THIS GATE AGAIN.

Acts 1:10-12 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven. Then returned they unto Jerusalem from the mount called Olivet, 
 
 
Zechariah 14: 3 & 4; “Then the Lord will go forth And fight against those, nations, As He fights in the day of battle. And on that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. And the Mount of Olives shall split in two, From east to west, Making a very large valley; Half of the mountain shall move toward the north And half of it toward the south.” Now, when did “The Lord” God have feet? The Mount of Olives which faces the Eastern Gate, and it will be opened by his coming.
 
 
 
In Isaiah 61 we are told that He will come from the east, and in Zechariah 14 we are told that he will touch ground on the Mount of Olives.
 
 The eastern gate holds a special holiness for Jews, who believe that the Sheckinah or Divine Presence used to appear through this gate and will appear again. In the meantime it is believed it must be left untouched
 
Some today are suggesting that this gate should be reopened to provide greater access to the Temple Mount for pilgrims. Let’s see how far they will get with their plans.
 
So, it appears that the Eastern Gate will remain closed and when the Lord returns this Psalm will be fulfilled:
Psalm 24:7 says, “Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in! Who is the King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.”

      Some other key Scriptures regarding the east:

      When Jesus comes riding upon the clouds:

      “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
      — Matthew 24:27

      By coming from the east to the west, Jesus will be taking advantage of the rotation of the earth.

      I believe the following 2 verses from Isaiah are speaking of the rider on the white horse revealed in the 1st seal in chapter 6 of Revelation:

      “Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.”
      — Isaiah 41:2

      “Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.”
      —Isaiah 46:11

        am123 How are you brother. Thanks for the aditional information. I was just talking about you to a person who read my article on the Spiritual Body. She really liked the comments after it. Here is the link: https://www.facebook.com/michael.clinton.148/posts/10200392913170804?comment_id=66454580&offset=0&total_comments=9&notif_t=share_comment

      • Truthseeker

        The west is darkness, the East is light. The Light of God travels from east to the west bringing light.

        That theme is through out the Word. When Christ returns He brings the Light, He is the Light.

        His return will be over a 24 hour period. When His foot stands on the Mount of Olives there will not no night on earth only light. Just for that day.

        I read some of Hamp writings years ago. He states there has been many raptures since Adam,
        If Christ is the First Born, if Christ is the first to rise from the dead, if Christ is the first to receive eternal life. If Christ came to show us the Way: there can be none that precede Him or He is not the first of anything.

        • Mike Clinton

          @Truthseeker If I understood him correctly, and I think I did, Hamp also believes that God is a man like us. That’s Mormon doctrine.

          • franklinr

            Well, not exactly. I am a practicing Latter-day Saint, a Mormon to you, and it would be more accurate to say that we believe that God WAS a man like us on the earth where he was born. We are also taught that we can become like Him in every way and He will give us everything. This includes the power to create new spirit children which we will place on an earth.

            • King of Shambhala

              Obama’s the Antichrist and you all know it perfectly well: why do you remain silent?
              That’ll doom you in eternal hell to remain silent.
              I’m the Messiah because I don’t remain silent and I alone worldwide stand up to be counted by revealing Obama’s the Antichrist.

            • King of Shambhala

              I’ve added my comment in this thread.
              No need to beat the dead horse.
              I’m the Messiah and Obama’s the Antichrist.

        • Truthseeker

          God is a man like us????? that makes about as much sense as making a golden calf and worshiping
          it.

          And folks pay money to hear him????? That alone should tell you something

        • Mike Clinton

          Truthseeker, I was talking to one of the really big names in Christian publishing (I won’t say who) and they are aware of Doug’s strange theology too.

          That slip wasn’t as bad as “through out”. I got stuck there for a while.

        Israel’s “messiah” will be Antichrist — a military commander who will have brothers, also military officers. The beast will be born with teeth and feed on impure things. He will be the illegitimate child of a bishop and a nun – not necessarily Catholic. Protestants also have “bishops” and “nuns.”

        These are not my opinions. They were spoken by the Blessed Virgin Mary at LaSalette in 1846.

      • Mayhem

        @am123… “By coming from the east to the west, Jesus will be taking advantage of the rotation of the earth”

        What are you on about here, brother? His coming from the east will be counter to the rotation of earth. What advantage do you see?

        • am123

          What I mean is by coming from east to west, He will approach everyone on earth that much quicker (however fast the earth spins) than He would if for example He were to come from west to east.

        • Mayhem

          I hear that, brother.

          Come my King and humble me for i am in need of guidance.

            You need guidance you say but you don’t even look at things.
            666 is Obama’s money and he’s the Antichrist.
            666 was indeed drawn the day after Obama’s election in his homestate’s lottery.

      • King of Shambhala

        I’m the Messiah.

        Jesus said to not follow those false christs claiming to speak in his name in the end times. You can’t claim that you know how he’ll return and under what form (be it the lottery or otherwise) because the ways of heaven are unfathomable and when he returns, it’ll be unannounced, unpredictable (by us) and it will take us by surprise (‘like a thief coming at night’ and ‘like lightning fallling to earth’).
        The lottery draw (see video above) fits perfectly with the Bible because it also explains the Antichrist’s Mark of 666′s meaning.
        Indeed, it requires a man of wisdom to understand the Mark of 666 says the Bible.
        I see, by the feeble comments in comment-threads to my articles, that none of you here are those ‘men of wisdom’.
        Let me explain why the lottery fits the Bible ‘s description of 666.
        666 means money because lotteries mean money.
        What is 666 in the Bible? It’s something without which, you won’t be able to buy or sell. That’s what money is. You can’t “buy or sell” without money. What’s more obviously true than that. Only the lottery can fit with that. It’s a perfect fit. No doubt is possible.
        How does Obama, (as the Antichrist) use money to force it into our hands and foreheads (as the Bible predicts)?
        He’s spending the governement money to force handouts upon us which we refuse to accept.
        But he forces it upon by executive orders and Quantiative Easing which has totally bankrupted us.
        So, how do we refuse that money being forced upon us?
        Very easily: we just arrest Obama so his signature becomes invalid and all his work which he’s signed, will be cancelled immediately.
        What grounds do we arrest Obama on?
        Drag him to court for his forgery of his birth certificate and then the added felony of using that forgery which he published on Internet.
        That is the meaning of 666 which I alone in the world know and I’m spreading the news of that worldiwde throughout Internet by blogs, foorums and videos.
        So, I’m the Messiah because I have this wiisdom and this understanding that no one has.
        I’m the Messiah because I bring this message.
        Trump has won Nevada now and he’s the Witness of the Bible who defeats Obama.
        Trump will arrest Obama.
        Trump’s already offered $50 million for Obama’s passport and college records that Obama didn’t hand over.
        Sheriff Joe Arpaio spoke to open for Trump’s rally yesterday and is visiting Trump from Arizona. Arpaio said a few years ago that Obama’s birth certificate is 100% forged. He said he arrests people everyday, for the same crime as Obama’s crime.
        Saying ‘heaven doesn’t like lotteries’ is stupid.
        See the video above:
        Obama – The Lottery and 666 What are the CHANCES?
        That video says that there are man examples of heaven’s strange and weirdly hair-raising behaviour:
        In the Bible heaven spoke through his mule to Baalaam.
        A rod spoke to Moses.
        Heaven speaks in unknown and astounding ways.
        A Burning Bush spoke to Moses.
        Heaven spoke through a lottery to us and that lottery has a deeep meaning which a man of wisdom like me understands, while the morons in this thread ignore the meaning because they’re too ugly people to understand it.
        I’m the One, no doubt is possible. I speak the truth while the ugly morons in this thread don’t havea clue. Don’t follow them said Jesus. They are not the way and they are not the truth.
        I’m the only way and the only truth not them.
        Follow me and leave them behind. The Bible said “Don’t Turn Back toward them.”
        Beware of all those claiming to come in Jesus’ name and say they’re Christians.
        Jesus said all Christians would be doomed in the end times because they’ll be false christs.
        Don’t follow Christians in the end times because Jesus said they’ll all be false christs and demons.
        They’ll be evil so don’t follow them.
        Follow me, the Messiah.

            Jesus said to not follow those false christs (like Anonymous above in the comment before this one) claiming to speak in his name in the end times. You can’t claim that you know how he’ll return and under what form (be it the lottery or otherwise) because the ways of heaven are unfathomable and when he returns, it’ll be unannounced, unpredictable (by us) and it will take us by surprise (‘like a thief coming at night’ and ‘like lightning fallling to earth’).

      BTW Mike, I would follow you on Facebook except for the fact that, well….I’m not on Facebook :grin: .

      But anyway, thank you so much for the kind words. However, anything good that I might say comes not from me, but from the Holy Spirit.

      As it says in Jeremiah 9:24, if I will boast of anything, it is that I know the LORD, who is good and whose love endures forever.

      May God bless you richly for the work you do Mike, in Jesus name amen!

        am123 I really got involve on Facebook when I started writing on here. I have made about 500 friends from all over the world. I have friends in Russia and Muslim countries where I thought they had Christian persecution. These folks have Christian pages. I have a girl in Greece translating these articles and posting them there. After I post my articles on here I spend a lot of time for the next three days responding to comments and questions on Facebook. I met Patrick Heron on Facebook. I just debated Doug Hamp on Facebook over my last article on the Gap Theory. I have got to talk to Chris Putnum, Rob Skiba, and Bill Still. It has been great for me.

      Jesus will come to earth after the seven year Great Tribulation.

      (Zec 14:1-4 NIV) A day of the LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided among you. {2} I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. {3} Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle. {4} On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.

      (Zec 12:9-10 NIV) On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem. {10} “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.

      • am123

        Jesus will come riding upon the clouds after the tribulation and every eye shall see:

        “Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.”
        —Revelation 1:7

        As for setting His feet down on the mount of Olives, that has to occur AFTER the thousand year Millennial Reign, because chapter 14 of Zechariah speaks of the time of the new heavens and new earth when there is no night:

        4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

        5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

        6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:

        7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the Lord, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

        8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

        9 And the Lord shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one Lord, and his name one.
        —Zechariah 14:4-9

        Verses 6 and 7 above speak of the time when it is always light, which dovetails with the description of the new heaven and new earth described in Revelation:

        23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

        24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

        25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
        —Revelation 21:23-25

        Also, Zechariah 14:8 speaks of living water flowing from Jerusalem and it is from the New Jerusalem which living water flows (see Revelation 22:1).

          I understand where you’re coming from Anonymous because the cross is the power of God to those that are being saved but it is foolishness to those that are perishing. And teachings such as this are the aroma of life to those who are being saved but they are the stench of death to those who are perishing.

      I’m sure many of you dismiss this, however.

      As a child, the very notion of the Christian Jesus being an alien traveling through space in a spaceship, even if named a ‘chariot’. Was a view I remember being shared by only progressive and new age Christians.

      Over the past decades the World, in particular the Western Christian world has been awash with science fiction/fact, mainly space based. Usually following a very familiar ‘earth’ based fable. Combined with the technology we are ‘allowed’ to place about us and our homes

      This technological shift has most definitely resulted in a shift of how Christians talk and describe Jesus ‘returning’. By space ship …!! Clever programming……

      Read the comments above… Along with the usual scripture quotes and blind faith, is a most :???: noticeable openess to this shift.

      You could argue it is simply a sign of the times. People affected by a world of sci tech but some still fixed.upon an ancient idea.

      This would also apply to Jews.

      It is merely an observation over years of looking at cultural and technological changes.

        Call me old-fashioned, but Jesus isn’t coming in a spaceship.

        When Jesus does return, everyone on earth will know it because they will see it. Jesus will come riding on the clouds with His mighty angels in flaming fire. It will span the entire eastern horizon. In a mighty explosion of power and glory, Christ will suddenly overtake the whole earth with great thunderstorms, earthquakes, winds, hail, and an all-consuming, devouring fire. The valleys of the sea will be exposed and the foundations of the earth will be laid bare. It will be unlike anything anyone has ever seen before, the most terrifying and awesome thing ever witnessed. The sky itself will disappear with a roar, rolling up like a scroll. And it will all happen suddenly, in an instant. Everyone will know it is the end of the world and will only be able to react instinctively. If you are not ready for it, then the great glory, magnitude, ferocity, voracity, and rapidity of this climatic and cataclysmic event will overwhelm you and you will run in fear trying to save your life, in which case you will lose it. Hence, we are told to be ready for it. Those who have prepared for it will not fear it, for perfect love drives out all fear, and they will meet Christ in the clouds to be with Him forever more.

          Lol! Well I hope for your sake and mine that the word Jesus doesn’t translate to ‘comet’ then… Because again the ancient belief you hold reads so much like either a membership surrounded by fighters…. Or a large interplanetary object carrying with it all manor of flaming meteorites.

          I do also set aside time to watch the opposite end of the scake. I.E those who swear Nibiru is on a collision course. so those who believe Lucifer the light bearer is coming.

          What I find so fascinating is that somehow, (well not somehow, I know exactly how).

          Each belief system plays right into the hands of technology and is almost merging into not one belief system. But an expectation of an event. Described almost identically.

          It is going to be very easy with the further and future advances in technology.

          To make ALL of your dreams fit. Uniting you all under 1 central control.

          I implore you, Christian Jew Muslim whatever, to realisetur division and wars, whether fought by words or weapons. Are ultimately the tool being used to bring you all together.

          Do you really believe Muslims or Jew or Christians are ‘evil’?

          Or does every bit of BS propaganda fed to you my mainstream media and so called holy men. Fuel a inherent bloodlust and the need for a common enemy to bind your ‘tribes’ ?

          I know the answer. As humans in the same planet, you have been played with like pawns on a chess board.

          At one point in the game, when the timing is absolutely spot on. They will make you question your beliefs in an instant.

          They’ve programmed you already, time for a reboot I fear.

          Personally I believe technology itself will be our undoing.

          Complete with blinding lights, terrifying noises, people simply evaporating, things falling from the sky.

          Not so different is it……. But it will be man reigning fire from the skies… As it always is.

          Men of God. Whomever tribe they follow.

          But one can render that slippery serpent powerless against them by invoking the power of the cross and knowing who they are in Christ and taking residence at the right hand of the Most High, far above the powers and principalities of this world.

          Have you looked up the word used for cross?

          #4716 “stauroo” A stake or post (as set upright)

          The Beast Power will come with the sign of the cross. If the catholics use the cross, it can’t be true.

          @Truthseeker,

          Have you read what Jesus said?

          “And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.”
          —Matthew 10:38

          Have you read what the Apostle Paul wrote?

          “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
          —1 Corinthians 1:18

          So instead of using the phrase “the power of the cross”, should I have used “the power of the stake or post”? That would have been pretty silly, wouldn’t it?

          Also, I don’t believe what you say about the beast coming with the sign of the cross…got any Scriptural support for that?

        • Truthseeker

          If 95% of the 4000 + flavors of Christianity use the cross, I will stick with the actual word and the actual meaning. I have found in my long life that the majority are usually wrong by a huge margin.

          I have studied enough to say the catholic church, a church of gentiles, is a counterfeit Church of God. They have changed everything Christ and the Apostles left as examples for us to follow. The Sabbath to Sunday ect. Every thing Christ said not to do — they do.
          Besides, why would Christ, a Jew, turn over His Father’s Church to gentiles? The God Family has worked with only what has now become the House of Jacob, the 12 tribes, exclusively, salvation is of the Jews. Where does it say He cast off Jacob for gentiles. Christ is to rule the house of Jacob for all eternity. The 12 Apostles will each rule a tribe.

          The Beast is a religious/military power that will control world commerce. The False Prophet and the Beast will be worshiped, the False Prophet will have great supernatural powers.
          This is going to be a huge religious structure with all the accepted symbols, the cross, Sunday, and all 2000 years of church history behind them, and the daughters will return.
          It can only be the catholic church.

          and as far as a very nice looking Savior with long hair — we have been told many times and in many way not to make images of anything in heaven or earth as a symbol of worship, and you did.

        • am123

          @Truthseeker,

          You said:

          “If 95% of the 4000 + flavors of Christianity use the cross, I will stick with the actual word and the actual meaning.”

          And so you call me out for using the phrase “the cross”? Many times you get your wires crossed up in your comments.

          I use “the cross” because that is what the Word uses. If 100% of Christians use something else that is different than what the Word says, I will still go with the Word.

          You said:

          “Where does it say He cast off Jacob for gentiles. Christ is to rule the house of Jacob for all eternity. The 12 Apostles will each rule a tribe.”

          Christ is going to rule the whole world, not just the tribes of Israel…do you even need me to point you to the Scriptures for this? This is basic stuff.

          Regarding the beast, I agree it will be a military and religious system. But it sure is looking like it will be some type of one-world religion with Islam playing the biggest part. They will think they are doing God a favor by beheading Christians (sound familiar?).

          Regarding worshiping images, just FYI, I do not worship my profile image.

          The KJ also has Passover translated Easter once, that was changed in the Bible by the catholic church much later on. And I John 5: 7 was also added by catholic’s

          The KJV is a translation by man, but it is the best and I use it, but I use Strong’s to prove meaning. I believe it is wrong to use a cross as a symbol. Do I sometimes use it with the real babes yes.

          In I Corn. 1: 18 the meaning is —
          The sacrifice of Christ is foolishness, not a cross or even a stake but what was done on it.

          The muslims will be the King of the South, a Caliphate The king of the North will conquer them and will use muslims to invade the House of Israel, muslims will always jump at the chance to kill those of the great satan and to cut off heads.

          I can’t prove the Beast will use the cross but I have proven to my self the catholic church is joining with the Beast. If so it will use everything they now use. Stop and consider, if it is the Catholics, and if the false prophet and the whole system is worshiped, it will have a Holy Day and quess which one that is? I contend Sunday is the mark of the Beast. If one does not worship the Beast or honor Sunday they will not buy and sell, they will not be allowed into the system. Have you ever heard of ISSO or CU? This Beast system will have rules and regulations for every single thing man makes or does. this is coming out of the EU at the behest of Germany right now and their symbol will be the cross.

          I do make mistakes when tired, especially when my grand kids are trying to talk to me at the same time.

          Are you not bothered by the fact of 4000 so called christian churches? Christ is ONE!
          Christ will not have those of the rapture before the 5th Seal and then those of the rapture during the 6th or 7th Seal, then the born again, the Pentecostals, Mormons, Jehovah’s witnesses etc ect on and on? The division never ends. It is confusion.

        • am123

          Truthseeker,

          You said:

          “I believe it is wrong to use a cross as a symbol.”

          What do you think this sign will be:

          “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven…”
          — Matthew 24:30

          Won’t it be something the whole world will be familiar with and can interpret?

          You said:

          “Are you not bothered by the fact of 4000 so called christian churches?”

          No. I’ll tell you why. Before Jesus, the only true organized religion was the law of Moses. So there is no disputing (among believers) what the “correct” religion was. But then Jesus came and set us free from the law of Moses. So we became free from religion. While that freedom should unite all true Christians, what has happened is man’s desire to make rules and regulations and have people follow them was the catalyst for the various denominations. So here we are today with the however many denominations we have.

          But I fret not. For it is part of God’s plan to break down the walls of division and unite believers into one body. This will happen when one of the 2 witnesses, the one represented by Zerubbabel, who is called the “Branch”, will sprout up or shoot up out of his place and build the Temple (Church):

          “And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, Behold the man whose name is The Branch; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the temple of the Lord:”
          —Zechariah 6:12

          This is when the body of Christ will mature to the very stature of Christ Himself, doing the things He did, and even greater things. This is the time of the great end-time harvest and victory, with the Church preaching the true Gospel (it is a matter of power, not words) and then the end will come. It is the time when the overcoming Church will finally win the victory over Satan, causing him to be taken out of the way in heaven and tossed down to the earth (see chapter 12 of REV). Then the antichrist will be revealed (chapter 13 of REV) and the rest of the Book of Revelation will be played out on the world stage.

        • desert owl

          @am123 The sign spoken of in Mat.24:30 definitely is NOT the cross. The cross in all its various forms is the sign of antichrist.

          I can not ascribe to any thing you just said. God is not the author of confusion, Satan is.

          Christ told His disciples to be of the same mind. Now 4000 minds????

          One big point; The sacrifice of Christ freed us from the penalty of the Law, not the Law.
          From a logical point, how can the Law killing Christ do away with it. The Law did away with Christ.

          The Bible is written to cause folks to jump to conclusions, man has never wanted to obey God and God gave him some scriptures that he can jump to the conclusion he no longer has to obey God. The whole creation is based upon LAW. God is going to take away the law that says you can take His NAME in vain????

          If there is no Law then no one need repent, what would you repent of? Did Christ make a mistake when He first began by saying” Repent for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand”
          Why tell us to repent and be baptized, if there is no law then we can set up idols, I can chase all the girls I want.

          The Law of God and what its’ status is in our day has been confusing, please read this explanation, its long but read slow. This is what I find to be true.

          Daniel 9: 27

          27 “And He shall confirm the covenant with many for one week and in the
          midst of the week He shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease”.

          (Oblation), non living ritualistic offering such as grain).
          Christ bled to death on the stauros (stake) on a Wednesday, mid-week,
          completing only one half of His ministry i.e. 3 ½ years of His 7 year ministry, the other half of His ministry will be completed later. Christ’s death was the sacrifice symbolized by the Passover.

          A lamb could never pay the penalty for the sins of one man much less mankind. The Blood on the door post did not do away with the law, it represented that someone had died thus the penalty of the Law – death – was paid in full.

          The only life worth more then all of mankind can only be the creator and giver of that life and our Creator, Jesus Christ, gave His life for us in full payment for our sins.

          Once Christ fulfilled the shadow i.e. the Passover, the sacrifice it foreshadowed is now fulfilled and no longer necessary. Christ’s death completed the requirement of a sacrifice for sin and for sin offerings (oblation).

          Christ came not to void the law which simply codified sin, but to become
          what the Passover sacrifice was foreshadowing. The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, whose life is greater then all mankind, gave His life to fulfill the requirement of the penalty of death prescribed for the transgression of the law.

          Every single person that has ever lived has trampled the Law of God and is sentenced to death, Christ simply died in your place. You are freed from the penalty of death. Once you accept Christ death as payment for your sins at baptism, every sin up to that moment is forgiven, all future sin must be repented of and will upon repentance be forgiven.

          What did Christ come to earth to accomplish? Did He come to void the Law so there would be no more sin thus no penalty? Where there is no law there can be no transgression.

          The Law is God’s witness against us.
          Christ holds up the two tables of Stone and says, you do not measure up to My Way, this witness, this testimony which I have in my hand condemns you do death.

          Christ came to pay the death penalty we have each earned for breaking the eternal Law of God the Father. Christ did not void the law, He paid the personal penalty we each received for transgression of the law, we are thus no longer condemned to death for all past sin once we repent and are baptized. We are under grace: unmerited, undeserved, unearned forgiveness of our sins.

          If someone pays your fine for a traffic ticket received for running a red light, they are not voiding the law that made it unlawful to run red lights, they are simply paying your fine for you, you then no longer are in debt to the law. But this also means the law is still in effect, if you run another red light, you again owe the fine.

        • Mike Clinton

          @Truthseeker Christ’s 3 1/2 year ministry has always interested me too. Another thing is the Book of Revelation only mentions 3 1/2 years. Some say that they are to be combined and that some parts refer to the first half of the week and some parts to the second but so far I cannot see where it says that clearly. The problem with Christ fulfilling the first 3 1/2 years is that there is no record of Him making a seven year covenant with the majority of the Jews. The prince of the people who destroy Jerusalem confirms a seven year covenant that is broken in the middle of the seven years. I do not think it is a coincidence that Christ’s ministry was exactly 3 1/2 years, but what that means I do not know.

          The Law was never given to save; it was given to reveal a condition that we have. We will have this condition until the day we die. When we are saved we get a new condition that, if we feed it, can give us victory to the extent that we walk in the new condition. When we are saved we no longer want to sin. That does not mean that we do not ever sin, it means that when we do slip up it really, really bothers us. Sinning doesn’t bother a lost person like it does a saved person. Adrian Rogers said it like this: “I sin all I want to, in fact, I sin more than I want to, I wish I never sinned at all.” I want to keep God’s absolute standards but I have a part of me that is weak. Striving to keep God’s standards in my own strength is futile. The victory over the old man is achieved, not through my own efforts, but surrendering to Holy Spirit. This is done through prayer, saturating my mind with scripture, and saying no to the flesh.

          I used to watch TV. One year I bought a Bible on CD. I started listening to it when I drove somewhere or when I was in my shop. I listened to it 12 times the first year. About six months into this I came in the house and the TV was on. I was shocked! There, on that TV, was everything the Bible had been saying all day was wrong. I lost all my desire to watch TV, not because I used my will power…my desire was changed by the Word of God.

          I used to always put of my prayer time. There was always something I had to do, but I intended to pray later. Usually, I never got around to it. I read an old book: “The House of the Seven Gables” by Hawthorne. The woman in the book began everyday with prayer; that was the first thing she did. I decided right then that I would begin everyday with prayer, the very first thing I do, on my knees. This too has changed my life.

          Sounds like the subject for a future article.

            The time, times, and half a time is the 3.5 years, which is the 182 (actually, 189) weeks, which is the 1224 (actually, 1273) days. Figure it out from there.

            3.5 x 365 +1 = 1273.
            3.5 x 52 = 1224.
            1273 – 1224 = 49 = 7 x 7.

            3.5 x 52 = 182.
            (3.5 x 365)/7 + 1/7 = 189.
            189 – 182 = 7.

            Good luck with it.

            Know that 1539 C.E. + 483 = 2022 C.E.
            1542 C.E = 483 = 2025 C.E.

          In “Pilgrim’s progress” the main character, whose name was “Christian”, met a very handsome man whom Christian greatly admired. The only problem was, every time Christian confronted this man he would beat Christian to a pulp. The man’s name was ” Mr. Law”.

          Have you heard the story of the woman who married Mr. Law?

          Mr. Law was a difficult man. Mr. Law had daily requirements for his wife and no matter how hard she worked to accomplish her daily requirements, Mr. Law was never totally satisfied.

          Mr. Law refused to love his wife because she was never right enough to deserve his love.

          Mrs. Law found herself tired and without energy for her daily requirements. Mrs. Law came to realize that she could not live up to Mr. Law’s expectations so she gave up trying. Mrs. Law was dead and lifeless without any hope. She knew that she could never satisfy Mr. Law and that he never truly loved her. So Mrs. Law, at the risk of her security and safety, separated herself from Mr. Law.

          Since Mrs. Law could not work hard enough to be right with Mr. Law, she concluded that she would rather be alone than unloved by her husband.

          One day, Mr. Law died. Mrs. Law didn’t know exactly how to feel because Mr. Law had been so difficult to share life with. She felt sad and yet she felt as though a heavy burden had been lifted from her.

          As time progressed Ms. Law met and fell in love with another man named Mr. Grace. After a time they were married.

          Mr. Grace didn’t seem to be nearly as difficult as Mr. Law. But one morning, as Mr. Grace left for work, he gave his wife a list of requirements for the day.

          As Mr. Grace left the house, Mrs. Grace began to worry. As she worried, she could not keep her mind on the requirements. At the end of the day, when Mr. Grace pulled into the drive, Mrs. Grace was having a panic attack because her list was not yet complete.

          As Mr. Grace entered the house and asked about the requirements, Mrs. Grace burst into tears of fear. Mr. Grace didn’t understand why she was so scared. He just wanted to know what was left on the list that he could help her to complete.

          As Mrs. Grace settled down, she realized that Mr. Grace was truly a man who loved her. Mr. Grace came along side her and helped her to accomplish that which she could not accomplish on her own.

          Mrs. Grace found new life, new energy and a love that she had never known before. Mr. Grace was shocked when the woman he had fallen in love with began to open up to him and trust him with all her cares. He was surprised by the effect his love had on his wife. The more he loved her the more she responded and the greater their relationship became.

          @Truthseeker,

          Ah, something we agree on!

          We are a nation in need of God’s help more than ever before. But today, the highest court in the land spit at and thumbed their noses at God. The proportion that a society goes against the will of God, that is the same proportion that God withdraws His hedge of protection and blessing from that society. The more the nation as a whole turns its back on God, the more the presence of God withdraws. And the more the presence of God withdraws, the more room that gives to the Devil to come in and do his thing. Consider in the natural world how a heavy police presence in a city or town keeps criminal activity at bay. But reduce or remove or the police presence and the chaos of crime kicks in. Likewise, in the spiritual world, because America’s rulers, particularly the Obama administration, have been and are turning their backs on God, then the more the presence of God recedes, and so the more evil comes in like a flood. The Devil and demons have been given a freer reign on the spiritual turf of America. And since demons are attracted to evil human inclinations like flies are attracted to fresh dung, they gladly go and stoke the embers and fan the flames of human depravity, resulting in horrific crimes. I believe we have been seeing this already—an uptick in horrific crimes—across America the last few years as America has been reaping this spiritual law and has become a haunt for demonic activity. Our leaders are blind and have essentially given a green light to the Devil and his thugs to come and do their things. And the anger of the LORD is revealed in the whirlwinds that buffet this nation (see Jeremiah 23:19, 30:23). These things will only increase because of the ruling by the Supreme Court today. It has added fuel to the fire of judgment that will fall.

          God gives us a choice between blessings or curses, depending on if we follow His ways or not. Unfortunately, our politicians and leaders have chosen the latter. And so now, America will reap what it has sown in the spiritual world.

      Mike C. Scripture always state god had human Appearance. ( lets make man to our likeness), the earth is my pieddestal , my hand…, stretch my arm…, god himself implies he has a physical body. I dont understand why you say ( mormon doctrine) this is plain bible reading!

      To my understanding the lord will come back when will be just about wiped off from an extermination war
      ( armaguedon) and the few left will crie out to the lord for help ,then he will come .
      Weither he has long or short hair is irrelevant ,100% of painting of christ are artistic representation. When you will be. In his presence, for good or bad you will know : he is!

      • Mike Clinton

        Frank,The Bible also says He has wings like a chicken: Psalm 36:7 How excellent [is] thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.

        Do you think He has a sword for a tongue, feet made out of white hot bronze, eyes that shoot out flames of fire too?

          Mike,

          Daniel 9: 27

          The covenant Daniel is referring to is the New Covenant. Christ came for 7 years to confirm or to put into effect the new covenant under the rule of the government of God. The Jews rejected Him as their King and killed Him.

          He, as is foretold by Daniel, only completed 3 1/2 years. But fulfilled His part of the Covenant.

          Once He returns and I believe before His 1000 year reign begins He will finish the 3 1/2 years of His ministry putting into effect the New Contract over the entirety of the earth. This is the period He will rule with the rod of Iron as there will still be unconverted gentiles hostile to His rule. At the end of the last 3 1/2 years the world will be at peace and the 1000 years of Rest will begin.

        • am123

          Regarding the 3 1/2 years:

          I believe that indeed the final 3 ½ years is tied in with the 42 months of the Book of Revelation. Some food for thought along those lines:

          Jesus was cut off after 3 ½ years, so 42 months remain. Jesus got up in the synagogue and spoke the first 1 ½ verses of Isaiah chapter 61….

          1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;

          2 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord…

          —Isaiah 61:1-2

          Jesus stopped mid-verse and sat down. What I believe Jesus was doing was in effect “handing off” if you will (like a runner hands off a baton to the next runner) this remaining prophetic 3 ½ years to Abaddon, or the Destroyer. For the part that Jesus left off in verse 2 was:

          “…and the day of vengeance of our God”.

          The 42 months in Revelation is all about this:

          “For it is the day of the LORD’s vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.”
          —Isaiah 34:8

          A couple other vengeance-related verses from Isaiah:

          “For he put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak.”
          —Isaiah 59:17

          “For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.”
          —Isaiah 63:4

          The Destroyer is the rider on the white horse of the 1st seal and is described by Isaiah as the one from the east, a bird of prey, who is called by the LORD to perform the LORDs pleasure against Babylon:

          2 Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.

          3 He pursued them, and passed safely; even by the way that he had not gone with his feet.

          4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he.

          —Isaiah 41:2-4

          9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,

          10 Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

          11 Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.

          —Isaiah 46:9-11

          14 All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The Lord hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans.

          15 I, even I, have spoken; yea, I have called him: I have brought him, and he shall make his way prosperous.

          —Isaiah 48:14-15

          Abaddon, or the Destroyer, is described by Jeremiah as a lion and a chosen shepherd that will stand before the LORD:

          “The lion is come up from his thicket, and the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; and thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant.”

          —Jeremiah 4:7

          “Behold, he shall come up like a lion from the swelling of Jordan against the habitation of the strong: but I will suddenly make him run away from her: and who is a chosen man, that I may appoint over her? for who is like me? and who will appoint me the time? and who is that shepherd that will stand before me?”
          —Jeremiah 49:19

          Standing before the LORD is a very privileged position (see Zechariah 3:7). Who are the 2 that stand before the LORD?

          In the temple furnishings for the law of Moses, most of the furnishings are done away with in Ezekiel’s temple—no more table of Showbread, no more Golden Lampstand, no more Altar of incense, no more veil, and no more Ark of the Covenant. However, there are 2 overlooked furnishings that remain. In Solomon’s temple, at the entrance into the Holy Place, there was a pillar to the north called Boaz and a pillar to the south called Jakin, or Jachin (see 1 Kings 7:21). Boaz means “in him is strength” and Jakin means “he establishes”. At the entrance to the Holy Place of Ezekiel’s temple, there is a pillar on the north and a pillar on the south. These represent the 2 who stand before the LORD.

      Christ had to be put in the grave before sundown on Wednesday our April 25th 31 AD before 6 PM

      Matt. 12:39 ,40 The only sign Christ gave this evil adulterous generation is the sign of Jonas!

      As Jonas was three days and three nights in the whales belly so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. He said it twice!

      If you use the excuse that this is parts of days, that does not cut it. Christ states there are 12 hours in a day. John 11: 9.

      In Jonah 1: 17 it is also very clear Jonah was in the belly three days and three nights.

      You are trying to get Christ resurrected Sunday morning, He was not! He was resurrected before sundown on the 7th Day Sabbath. The day He is Lord of.

      You are confused because it says they had to put him in the grave before the Sabbath, right?
      John 19: 31 calls that Sabbath a high day. The Jews Passover is kept the night of the beginning of the Days of Unleavened Bread. That night, the 15th, and the day is a High Day a High Sabbath Day.

      The Days of Unleavened Bread is a 7 Day Holy Feast, the first day is a Sabbath and the 7th is a Sabbath High Day.

      Remember this is the ONLY sign Christ gave that He is the Savior. God begins a day at sundown, so one 12 hour night and one 12 day is one complete day. The day runs from evening to evening which is sundown to sundown.

      So at the approach of the evening of Wednesday the 14th of Nisan (April 25th 31 AD) at 3 PM Christ died on the stake. Actually He bled to death, the roman soldier ran a spear onto His side. Another very interesting point; this is the time, 3 PM, the priest finish slaughtering the Lambs, it is possible Christ died as the last lamb was bled to death.

      He was put in the grave just before sundown as the 14th of Nisan was turning into the 15th.

      He was in the grave on Thursday the 15th of Nisan for 12 hours of night then 12 hrs of day

      He remained in the grave for Friday the 16th of Nisan also 12 and 12

      Saturday the Sabbath is the 17th of Nisan, He was in the grave for the 12 hour night and for the following 12 hours of day and arose at evening or about 6 PM at the end of the 17th which is the Sabbath.

      Count it up it is three days of 12 hours each and three nights of 12 hour nights. 3 days and 3 nights just like Christ said.

      Christ died on our April 25th 31 AD at 3 PM, by God’s calender it was the 14th of Nisan.
      The reason that day is sure — it is the only time the 14th of Nisan fell on a Wednesday for many years either side of 31 AD.

      In Luke 23: 54 it states, “and that day was the Preparation Day and the Sabbath drew on.”
      The 14th of Nisan was the preparation day for the Feast of Unleavened Bread which fell on the 15th of Nisan of the year 31 AD.

      The three women bought the spices on Friday, prepared them and rested on the Sabbath Day, the 7th Day Sabbath.

      Why would Christ use only Jonah, say 3 days and 3 nights and then be in the grave for only
      2 nights and one day? that make no sense.

      Even Daniel 9: 27 says He will cause the sacrifice to cease in the midst of the week.

      I understand everyone accepts Sunday morning, but it is a lie.

      • am123

        You can believe that if you want Truthseeker, and it really isn’t worth arguing too much about, but I don’t believe what you believe about this. I go with how the Word describes the “third day”. I gave you one example, here is another:

        “It shall be eaten the same day ye offer it, and on the morrow: and if ought remain until the third day, it shall be burnt in the fire.”

        —Leviticus 19:6

        When God instructed Moses on things like the above, today is the first day, tomorrow is the second day, and the following day is the third day.

        So the Gospels tell us Jesus was raised on the “third day”. If He was crucified on Wed like you said, the Biblical “third day” after that would have been Friday.

        HERE IS THE COMPLETE 3 DAYS AND 3 NIGHTS:

        Friday night (after sunset on Thursday in modern timeline) – Garden of Guthsemane

        Friday day – Jesus was crucified

        Saturday night (after sunset on Friday in modern timeline) – Jesus in tomb

        Saturday day – Jesus in tomb

        Sunday night (after sunset on Saturday in modern timeline) – Jesus in tomb

        Sunday day – Jesus was resurrected!

        For an alternative to your viewpoint from someone with a sharper mind than I and who was closer to the actual date than you and I, here is what Sir Isaac Newton had to say on the subject. The way he comes to the conclusion about the Passion being in 34 AD using the timing of Passover and coalescing the different Gospels is a very interesting read:

        http://www.newtonproject.sussex.ac.uk/view/texts/normalized/THEM00205

        • Truthseeker

          Am123

          You can believe what you want also, but the ONLY SIGN is 3 days and 3 nights IN THE GRAVE

          what you have listed is only 2 nights and one day. All the rest He was alive, not dead.

          I understand it blows to hell the Sunday is the Lords day thing. Do you know what name God put on Sunday? ‘One’. all days are numbers but the 7th is the Sabbath.

          I care not one thing about the sharper mind of newton, the Spiritual things of God are not understood by the mind of man, they are foolishness to man.

          I tell you what Jesus Christ said and you bring up newton? I seek the Truth of God not man.

          You are right it is not to be argued about, I know for certain NOT one mind by facts, logic or even a baseball bat can be changed.

        • am123

          You say you seek the truth of God, yet you ignore how God uses the phrase the “third day”.

        • Truthseeker

          am123

          The number three is a very important number to God, it is used through out His Word.

          when Jesus Christ says the ONLY sign given to mankind is the sign of Jonas being 3 days and 3 night in the belly of the fish AND then says He will be in the heart of the earth –He will be IN not around not on top but in the earth for 3 days and 3 nights which He repeats to make sure you understand its importance’s, I listen to the words of my Savior – He used the 3 & 3 three times when you include Jonas 3 & 3. Three is the number of finality.

          He did not say parts of 3 days and 3 nights or close to 3 & 3 — He plainly says 3 & 3, 72 hours
          you can only come up with one day and two nights –tell me who should I believe??

          Why use your brain why not take this to our Father and ask Him? Either what Christ spoke is correct or it is not. If not, it matters not what either of us believes.

          I know every single word spoken by Jesus Christ is for a reason, we may have to research the translation but not one is a mistake or a guess or is off handed.

          What was written above connecting the scriptures fits together with all others.
          In your one day and two nights insert the Passover, the First Day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, a High Sabbath and all the other scriptures connected with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ. I does not work.

          Satan has the whole christian world following his day — I know you will not believe this either but just watch, the Mark of the Beast will be the Sunday Sabbath. The world will be over joyed and accept it without question. You had Mike Clinton confirm what the cross really represents, and the whole christian world accepts that without question also.

        • am123

          Your version cannot be correct. The Jewish way of thinking and the Biblical pattern is not a literal 72 hours, but partial days. If it was a full 72 hours like you claim, Jesus would have been resurrected on the FOURTH day, not the third day. But Jesus said He would be resurrected ON the THIRD day:

          “From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.”

          —Matthew 16:21

          Also see:

          “But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.”
          —Luke 24:21

          Here is a Biblical pattern from the Book of Esther where Esther tells the Jews to fast for her 3 days and nights before she appears before the king:

          “Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.”
          —Esther 4:16

          And then we see Esther appearing before the king “on the third day”:

          “Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house.”
          —Esther 5:1

          And you’re right that I do not believe the mark of the beast being Sunday.

        • Truthseeker

          am123

          your last point was good,

          I wonder why Christ didn’t just say three days?? Why bother saying all those words and then repeating them.

          Do you suppose He was actually saying 3 days and 3 nights? nay

          Lets see: 3 hours of friday He was dead but not in the grave but maybe for 15 minutes

          so count it as —–one day 1

          Sabbath night — one night 1

          Sabbath Day —- -one day 2

          Sunday night — one night 2

          He rose, according to the catholic’s at sunrise so count it as a day. 3

          That is still only 3 days and 2 nights. But that is close enough, right?

          It is just the only sign that He is our Savior, but hey who is counting?

        • am123

          A little sarcasm eh Truthseeker? :grin:

          As much as you want to force a square peg into a round hole, your version of things just doesn’t fit.

          Jesus resurrecting on Saturday would contradict the Scriptures. For the women looking for Jesus went looking for Him on Sunday and they said that was the third day:

          Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them.
          —Luke 24:1

          “But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.”
          —Luke 24:21

      Since Suleiman sealed the Eastern Gate in 1541AD maybe the Messiah’s 2nd coming happens 483 lunar years after 1541. “Sixty nine weeks is the Jewish way of saying 483 years.” 483 lunar years = 173,880 days per year, 173,880 days per year / 365.25 days per Solar year = 476.058 Solar years, 1541 + 476. 058 Solar years = year 2017AD. Some people believe 5 trumpets have already been blown by God’s angels. Perhaps the Earth will soon see the ‘Covenant With Many’ as we experience more Bible prophecy fulfillment.

      “Who raised up the righteous man from the east, called him to his foot, gave the nations before him, and made him rule over kings? he gave them as the dust to his sword, and as driven stubble to his bow.”

      Sounds like something from a comic book, could mean just about anything

      Who gave who what and was it his to give away and whats land got to do with a bow and why would you have to “Make” this guy rule or didn’t he want too.
