I am a Canadian, married with kid, and working in Hong Kong. I usually answer posts from a reformed / protestant / evangelical perspective.

People I have encountered on this site seem to be a ‘whole bunch of good people’. Even those who sharply disagree with my own point of view.

I am a huge sinner but am happy knowing God's grace will keep me in his grip.

comment According to Scripture, how should we interpret Scripture?
@Jas3.1 - noted. I am usually tapping away on my iPhone and have to come back for clean up later. Good question it forced me to think.

comment What are the strict set of rules followed by sensus plenior?
(+1) If you don't mind I plan to post an answer from an opposing 'label' that shows 'acceptance' of many of the ideas imbedded in your answer. But I have to wait till I properly understand more about SP, in a month or two. Thanks for sharing some of the orthodox results you have obtained. I find the figurative, though far less certain to me, often warms my heart more. My mind allows my heart a little more freedom than some, but I think personality also plays into exegesis and we must learn to accept different parts of the body gifted with different gifts.

I enjoyed reading your post a lot and had to read it a few times to understand your method, but I can't buy into the outcomes. Blue-King, Scarlet-Judge, Purple-Prophet. Only the alter was covered in purple, everything else blue. (When they moved the tabernacle) If anything I would have connected the altar with the priestly office. Cheers.

comment Who is the woman in Revelation 12?
+1 - The crowns on her head could be the gospel preached by the Apostles, and she seems on the moon possibly representing the light on a dark world under law. She stands (is supported by) the law and the prophets which reflected the 'dawning of the gospel. Also she is clothed with the Sun. So it seems she is the church who births more of the same.

@JonEricson - Yes I see what you are saying. Yet I think judgment for every sin, punishment happens immediately (at least internally) - but the ‘external judgment’ may be postponed. I am taking then ‘visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children’ to mean ‘not externally visited on the father’. For example, the kingdom of God was divided as a ‘national judgment’ for Solomon’s sin, yet Solomon lived in the greatest luxury without any national trouble at all!? (1 Kings 11:9-13). --- I usually use NIV and got your nudge, will try to remember to include that - Cheers.
