Throughout the Book of Ezekiel, the theme often changes dramatically from chapter to chapter, returning in a later chapter to a previous theme, with some of the symbolism being obscure and some of it extremely offensive to modern readers.

I think Nathanael and the other apostles did see angels ascending and descending on Jesus during Jesus's earthly ministry because in the Gospel of John it says that Jesus did so many things that the world could not contain the number of books if everything was written that he did (John 21 v. 25). So there must have been so many amazing things that weren't ...

Searching the internet for the first time, nobody seems to be echoing Schlatter, who blessedly died in Germany before Hitler assaulted the world. Schlatter saw Romans 16:20 as a possible echo of the Genesis verse. The God of peace will trample Satan beneath your feet shortly--a glorious and wonderful promise from Sentman Paul who before had seen sinner Adam ...

"Why are there no prophecies speaking of two comings of the messiah? Israel was going to be offered the new covenant and the kingdom. While God would have known that Israel would drop the ball at first and the Messiah would have to come again, no prophet was given this understanding because to do so would diminish the choice Israel had. Israel did have a ...

The second century apologist Justin Martyr discussed the two comings in his Dialogue with the Jew Trypho. I'll give a chapter of it here and list a few chapter titles with a link to the entire text. '' CHAPTER XXXII -- TRYPHO OBJECTING THAT CHRIST IS DESCRIBED AS GLORIOUS BY DANIEL, JUSTIN DISTINGUISHES TWO ADVENTS. And when I had ceased, Trypho said, ...

Josephus speaks in Wars of the Jews, Book 4, chapter 5, of Zacharias son of Baruch, who was killed in the temple at Jerusalem, around 67 CE. Much discussion surrounds the various similarities between this event and the passage in Matthew 23:35 (and Luke 11:51), where Jesus accuses the Jews of slaying Zacharias between the temple and the altar. Many ...

What prophecy was about Timothy? Timothy 1:18 This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; Both the Amplified and the Weust translations use the phrase "prophetic intimations" for the word "prophecies" in the KJV. This might mean that what was ...

The origin of this idea comes from the teachings of Ellen G. White, whom the Seventh-day Adventists consider a modern-day prophet. Early Writings, p 65: The pope has changed the day of rest from the seventh to the first day. He has thought to change the very commandment that was given to cause man to remember his Creator. He has thought to change ...

God makes a distinction between your (the people to whom the prophecy is directed) prophets (e.g. 1 Ki 22:23, Jer 27:9, Jer 27:9, Ezek 13:1-7) and my (God's) prophets (e.g. 1 Chr 16:21-23).1 God's prophets are the only true prophets. The others are false prophets (e.g. De 13:1-5, 2 Ki 18:19, 1 Ki 22:1-28, Jer 2:8, Jer 5:31). Regarding Ezekiel 12:27 ...

from The Bible, The Old Testament, Deuteronomy 18:18 (*)The prophet like Moses mentioned here refers either to the prophetic movement as a whole or to an individual, either like Joshua (successor of Moses) or Samuel. The New Testament sees here (this) a reference to the Messiah-John 1:21, Acts 3:22, 7:37. (Also John 1:45)

It doesn't matter if the prophecies are short or long term; the only thing that matters is if they are truly speaking the word that God gave to them: Behold, I am against them that prophesy false dreams, saith the LORD, and do tell them, and cause my people to err by their lies, and by their lightness; yet I sent them not, nor commanded them: therefore ...
