  7. Your arrogance betrays you. You must be coming from a suppercessionist paradigm. “given to the Gentiles”? “never to be rebuilt”? Really? Why have you not searched just a little bit out of your comfort zone? Ezekiel’s temple will be built and Paul spoke of the mysterious blinding “until the fullness of the Gentiles”. HaShem has neither forgotten nor will He forsake His people!

    • I agree, the above article has no substance or regard for scriptural arguments as proof of ANYTHING! Jesus HIMSELF fulfilled the first 4 “FEASTS OF THE LORD” right on the very DAY scheduled. Any student of the Bible understands that God uses the MOON in relation and as a timetable for His feast days celebrations. The NEW MOON (FEAST OF TRUMPETS) a solar/lunar event, certainly falls on certain “days” every year, in spite of the above article’s denial moon and sun phases are relavent to prophecy. God says THEY ARE. Jesus will fulfill this NEW MOON feast of the very DAY of the “FEAST OF TRUMPETS”. He fulfilled the first 4 feasts on the VERY DAY; He will fulfill the last 3 FEAST DAYS on the VERY DAY also. According to “laurelanthenat” (author of this article) people who study Biblical Calendars are guilty by association with “astrologers” using the celestial bodies ie. moon/sun phases and are to “be eliminated” (killed?) according to Deut.18:10-11. Thus “laurelanthenat” distain for opposing arguments to his pet interpretations. “laurelanthenat”, the heavenly bodies do tell the story of “redemption” of mankind and solar/sun phases God’s appointed days.

  8. broghtclose, I’m curious. Are you saying that Ezekiel’s temple proves that replacement theology is a lie? Since the topic here is the debunking of trendy theology in the hope that people will think more about the the truth historically and spiritually, what do you think about God’s temple as described to Ezekiel?

    • Hello Christine J. Webster,
      My reference to Ezekiel’s temple was to refute the statement of the author at: “Forty years later the temple lay in ruins, never to be rebuilt and the kingdom was fully given to the Gentiles.” I was only concluding that the author must be subscribed to replacement theology (which is rampant throughout Christendom) in order to miss the significance of the third temple – that the temple WILL be rebuilt.
      I am not in complete disagreement with all of the article…just big parts :)
      Now, do I think that the topic of Ezekiel’s temple could be beneficial to those who are willing to challenge supercessionism and dispensationalism. When the Messiah returns and during HIs thousand year reign, He will be ruling from Jerusalem in the Temple. The temple system and all that comes with it will be central to the practice of worship by all believers. Now, if this is true (and it is), then how does that line up with the position continually coming out of the seminaries (evangelical or reformed) that “all of that stuff is done away with”. It doesn’t….so something is wrong. I believe that we have inherited the lies of our fathers. We should be testing ALL of the previous conclusions just like the Bereans of Paul’s day, to measure what people are teaching.
      Another problem I have with the article is the incongruence of the Conclusion piece with the articles first question. Why use three examples (two really) of superstitious statements to be equally considered with what has been revealed in the prophets?

      • There is nothing in this post about Ezekiel’s temple. Nor does it contain the statement “Forty years later the temple lay in ruins, never to be rebuilt and the kingdom was fully given to the Gentiles.”

      • Beloved,
        I brought up Ezekiel’s temple.
        The following is a copy and paste from the article above:
        “In the Acts passage, Peter is quoting the Joel passage and saying that it is being fulfilled in front of their eyes.  So this can not be a prophecy about OUR future.  It was about the fall of Jewish polity.  From this moment Rome began to become less and less tolerant of the Jewish nation.  As they had rejected their Messiah, God now moved to make the Roman Empire to reject them.  Forty years later the temple lay in ruins, never to be rebuilt and the kingdom was fully given to the Gentiles.”

      • “The temple system and all that comes with it will be central to the practice of worship by all believers.”

        But you can’t possibly mean the animal sacrifices, since Jesus was the final sacrifice for sin and the fulfillment of the Law.

      • Bryan,
        It is profitable to study all of the sacrifices. Were they all for sin? Also, you would think that the apostles would be aware of “the animal sacrifices” and the doing away of them. But to challenge your assertion, look at:
        Acts 21: 26Then Paul took the men, and the next day he purified himself along with them and went into the temple, giving notice when the days of purification would be fulfilled and the offering presented for each one of them.

        Also, consider a portion of your statement rewritten like this: “and the fulfillment (not abolishment as is practiced and taught by those who oppose the Torah) of the Torah”

      • I am a gentile. I believe that Jesus is the Son of Man. I will be celebrating by having a Passover Seder in my home Monday night. When we limit Ha Shem we make a grave error. Yes there will be a new temple. Yes there will be sacrifices in this temple . Ha Shem created man in his own image. Yes there will be a world to come. This is the goal. Man restored . World restored. Heavens restored. Ha Shem being all in all. All being sons of God. For it pleased the Father that fullness of his divine nature to rest in the son. Awake, awake o you who sleep. For The Lord will descend with a shout and the dead in Mashiach will rise and those left alive will be caught up to meet him in the air ( clouds) . This world is being transformed into a the greater glory. Be perfect as your father in Heaven is perfect.

        Shalom

      • Luke 22:19 , all of the services were given to teach and reveal Ha Shem’s plan for creation. Yes, Jesus is the final sacrifice for sin. His sacrifice is eternal. No man comes unto the father accept thru him. The Gentiles are blessed thru the promised seed. That seed was brought to us thru Israel. If you have a specific question, then ask me. I will give you the text. Let me give you food for thought. In John 6 Jesus tell the people that they must eat his flesh and drink his blood. However, this would be against the Torah. In the later verses he tells them these words are spirit. The mystery Of Christ is Christ in You. If we can only see literal then we will fail to see spiritual.

        Shalom

      • Interesting. After reading your comment about sacrifices, Warren, i wonder what take you have on Isaiah 66 or Micah 6.

        Regarding the moon, I sure hope the sky over our place is clear so we can see it. Never the less, it is always good to pray for the peace of Jerusalem whether that prayer is directed to the earthly representation or the Jerusalem that is above. Peace be yours in Christ Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.

      • You have requested a response to a very rich utterance of Isaiah. In that there is limited ability to impart all that revolves around this portion of scripture I will try to give you and over view. First and foremost God has never desired to have animals pay the price for mans sin. However, these sacrifices teach and point to the sacrifice of one man, the Holy One of Israel, Yeshua the messiah. Anyone can keep the commandment to bring a sacrifice, yet God desires is that we do all that we do with a humble and contrite heart. Once the temple is restored there will be sacrifices that are brought and offered to God. However, the only sacrifice that will grant eternal covering of ones sin is the blood of Jesus. Life is in the blood. All of creation is paying for Adams disobedience. It was God who first sacrificed an animal in the Garden. It was God who destoyed all the animals in the Flood, it was God who in the 10 th plague killed the firstborn of both man and livestock. The animals are crying out for redemption as well as all creation. The key to your question is to realize that the present world that we live in and will live in when Christ returns to establish the Kingdom for a 1000 years will eventually be done away with. The Word says that the old order will pass away and all thing will be made new. This is the subject of the rest of Isaiah 66.
        Micah 6 repeats the same words. Anyone, be it Jew or gentile, that is honoring God with his lips only and not his heart, is going to be judged among the wicked, workers of iniquity. I hope this helps you.

        Shalom
        Warren

    • Yes replacement theology if not a lie is a gross distortion of the truth. Jesus called us (believers) branches of the tree of faith. There would be no Christian faith without the old covenant message of salvation. It is in every book of the Bible. Old and New Covenants. Christians did not discover redemption in Christ and thereby “own” it. We were graced to understand the fullness of the revelation in Christ as it concerns our redemption through his blood. I agree with Paul in Romans 11. The entire chapter is extremely significant to this concept, but here is a small portion. He speaks of ‘blindness’ that will be lifted from off of his covenant people in the last days. 26And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
      27For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
      28As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes. 29For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. 30For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief: 31Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. 32For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.”
      As the church we should watch Israel and we would do well to understand their history taking special note of verses 30 and 31. Are we fulfilling this in our lives are we being faithful to the Jewish people in this? Just because we may not understand “how” He is doing it, we know through the Word that God is in fact still at work in the nation he initially chose to show His compassion mercy and salvation.

  9. We have no problem with your Christology or your Soteriology. However we don’t understand why you thought it necessary to put it in our post on the Blood Moons. This is a prophecy blog.

  10. Blood Moons, Pretrib Rapture, Etc.

    Heard of the coming blood moons? Is the pretrib rapture symbolized by anything in the heavens?
    Hal Lindsey, influenced by occultic astrology, asserts on p. 124 in “The Late Great Planet Earth” that the famous Sphinx in Egypt has the head of a “woman” – even though encyclopedias say it’s the head of a “man”! Hal’s plagiarism on that page of a 19th century British theologian is his acceptance of the occultic Virgo-to-Leo theory – a “Christian” zodiac arbitrarily starting with Virgo (Virgin Mary) and ending with Leo (Christ returning as “Lion,” Rev. 5:5).
    Those who swallow this guesswork often see Ursa Minor (part of Cancer which precedes Leo) as a heavenly “symbol” of a pretrib rapture! (Hal doesn’t want anyone to Google “Hal Lindsey’s Pretrib Rapture Proof”!)
    Pretribs also insist on separating the “church” from “Israel” – but when you aren’t looking (or thinking) they blithely “prove” pretrib by the Jewish feasts in Leviticus, the stages of a Hebrew wedding (Google “Pretrib Rapture: A Staged Event”), and the one “taken” and the other “left” in “Jewish” Matthew 24.
    Amazingly, Jewishness (and even anti-Jewishness) has been uncovered even in pretrib dispensationalism’s 19th century foundation (Google “Roots of Warlike Christian Zionism”)!
    The current “blood moons” craze (promoted by lunar persons including rock musician Scottie Clarke and John Hagee) is tied to – you guessed it – the same old Jewish feast days.
    Yes, there’s something colored red in the future of the church, but I don’t have moons in mind. What will really turn red will be the collective faces of many when it finally dawns on them that their any-moment fly-away was nothing more than an end time hoax!
    Not shook up yet? Okay, then at least Google “Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty.”

  11. “This is not only bad theology but, it is also bad science.”

    What is? I do not see what Hagee said in your above quote that was bad theology or science. I do not see any predictions using these “blood moons” by Hagee in the quote you sited. He used some prophetic scriptures about blood moons and sun eclispes, but made no predictions of any future events. I do not follow Hagee anyway, but for sake of argument he said nothing I would construe as “astrology” (zodiac forecasting). “Using the sun, moon, and/or stars as portents of future events is not astronomy nor prophecy, IT IS ASTROLOGY”. Again–where in the quotes by Hagee did he do this? It is apparent that during “during those days..the sun became black as sackcloth, the full moon became like blood, Rev. 6:12” are definitely “wonders” in the Heavens associated with the “Day of the Lord”–God seems to have specifically pointed this out. Shall we accuse John on Patmos of praticing “astrology”? Acts 2:19 similarly declares this is GOD’S doing, “I (GOD) will shew WONDERS (τέρας “omens”) in the heavens” as a signal of the Lord coming. Greek (τέρας) –“wonders” a prodigy or “omen”: – wonder.” So, we must consider Joel and Peter as fellow astrologists and sky forecasters deserving God’s wrath? Hagee is ‘postulating’ not “soothsaying”–calm yourself.

  13. People still have not learned from the crap we all heard before. The Jupiter Effect, the Bible Code, the Quatrains of Nostradamus, Y2K and the December 21st 2012 end of the world crap. It’s all witchcraft and nothing is going to happen in the next few years. Satan is having a field day with us. The 4 blood moons is about as supernatural as a fortune cookie. Using the sun, moon, or stars as portents of future events is not astronomy or prophecy, IT IS ASTROLOGY. It’s witchcraft and the bible warns us about this kind of stuff. Such superstitious and practices are forbidden in the Bible [Deut 18: 9-14]. I fully expect the church to be into tea leaves, crystal balls, we-gee boards and tarot cards, very soon.! This 4 blood moons is just more crap coming from Satan. We subject ourselves to ridicule every time there is an asteroid or a planetary alignment or an eclipse, and we run around crying, that the sky is falling.!!

    • Ask the wise men if the star was just a symbol and crap from Satan, they seemed to find Jesus just fine. Jesus seemed to refer to signs as well when he rebuked the pharisees for not seeing the signs of his coming. Satan can’t control the moon and the stars, but what he can do is make them not matter, and a joke. He’s obviously succeeding. Careful what you think might be nothing, don’t get complacent always be ready in season and out of season and even if nothing does come to pass use it as a reminder to be ready.
