comment The number two in the book of Zechariah
+1 - I think you guys are both right. One is unity, so two often means division, yet it can also mean 'a pair' like both side of the same thing. A man and a woman make a complete pair. Just as the law and the prophets both complete the basis for the Messiah. My brain would hurt to think about it any more, but I think Jon captured the idea.

comment What is the “first resurrection”?
Jesus always seemed to speak of a single ressurection and Revelations is too shaky to me as a single source for introducing new doctrines, that do not seem to fit the rest of scripture. This is why I think this view has a lot of strength.

comment Why is the man going to measure Jerusalem in Zechariah 2:2?
@Kazark - Thank you. You might find in interesting how jewish expectation saw the literal accomplishment of this glorious temple would be (below link). "The City itself would be lifted to a height of some nine miles" .etc See here: worthychristianlibrary.com/alfred-edersheim/…

comment Significance of the “Son of Man” appellation in Ezekiel
@GoneQuiet - Alfred Edersheim, Jewish Historian and professor 1800s has a section in his book on Messiah, WHAT MESSIAH DID THE JEWS EXPECT? P163. He is extensive in his references to ancient Rabbinic literature. Sample quote: 'They convey the idea, that the existence of this Messiah was regarded as premundane (before the moon, before the morning-star), and eternal, and His Person and dignity as superior to that of men and Angels: ‘the Angel of the Great Council,' probably ‘the Angel of the Face' - m.ccel.org/browse/bookInfo?id=edersheim/lifetimes. For ex, Mica 5:2 was Messianic.

comment What does it mean to lay down beside an altar (Amos 2:8)?
@JonEricson - good point, incense and libations better fit the context of drinking.

comment In Dispensationalism what rule determines applicability of a scriptural demand?
@BobJones - I am not totally convinced that dispensationalism at least it's milder forms has a much different view from covenant theology in terms of Law and Grace. By the way Baptist churches are not dispensationalists but baptize by full immersion, so do other evangelicals that follow covenant theology. but you probably know that. Anyway I leave this one to you, you seem to know more about it than I do. Good luck in your research.

comment In Dispensationalism what rule determines applicability of a scriptural demand?
@BobJones - I added four more paragraphs meant to turn the focus away from 'dispensations' because this is not the key guiding principle I am identifying. It really is all about a system that make Revelations as literal as possible. It's not based on Law and Grace or what Laws one needs to follow, though it does assume the New Covenat fully did away with the Old by its fulfillment in Christ, but this is not unique to the dispensationalism but a very common evangelical belief. So regarding Sabbath, even I, though not a dispensationalist do not consider any day holier than another. Col 2:16-17

comment What is the baptism of fire?
+1 - there is a lot I like about your connection with the burnt offering, and your words around it. I also tend to think within the same theme, the Spirit baptized us into Christ, but when Jesus ascended into heaven as Lod, He baptized believers with the Spirit, which is this baptism. The fire I take to be the same as your meaning. It is similar to circumcision because it cuts away the nature of flesh.
