It is true that God instructs us not to take vengeance in places like: Rom 12:19 - “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Heb 10:30 - For we know him who said, “Vengeance is mine; I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge his people.” Deut 32:35 - Vengeance is Mine; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip; for their day of disaster is ...

The Rider on the white horse of Rev 19 is clearly Jesus Christ for the reasons listed in the appendix below. The sticking point is the title/name, "The Word of God". This title in the Greek is Ὁ Λόγος τοῦ Θεοῦ. Such a phrase occurs about 42 times in the NT an usually means the Scriptures or the Gospel, etc. However, as a Title of a person such ...

He cannot be anybody else than the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an allusion to Exodus 23:21 about the Angel who can judge and in whom is the Name of God*, for this Angel has not His angelic name but only God's Name, thus is God, and that's why can judge, for no angel has this prerogative, and this nameless Angel is equated to Christ in His pre-incarnate state by ...

I’m not saying that your postulate is an impossibility but it seems unlikely that this passage refers to a representative of Christ instead of Christ himself for the following reasons: The theme of the book from Rev 1:1 is the revelation of Jesus Christ.

It wasn't Jeremiah that was opposed to the Jews fleeing to Egypt. It was God. Jeremiah 42:10-12 God says through Jeremiah: stay in the land (Judah) Don't be afraid of the king of Babylon God would grant mercy and allow them to stay in their own land However, if they refused and disobey the voice of the Lord, Jeremiah 42:13-22 God would send the sword and ...

The genealogy of Yeshua is 14+14+14 which leads us to the Christ generation or those that become ONE (Echad) with Christ. Added together it sums to 42. There were 42 stops in the wilderness before entering the Promised Land. That means that 42 is a number that signifies the end of one place and transitioning into another. As stated in Rev 11:2 and 13:5, it ...

Background As we meet Jeremiah at the beginning of his prophecies, he is in the midst of puzzling out the punishments coming upon Judah in his day, and YHWH gradually unveils for him many various ways in which Judah was in stubborn rebellion. Despite YHWH's call upon Jeremiah to be a 'fortified city, an iron pillar, and bronze walls' (1:18), at first he does ...

Genesis 1:14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and they shall serve as signs and for seasons, and for days and years; Psalm 104:19 He made the moon for the seasons; The sun knows the place of its setting. When the New Moon occurred seems to have been totally natural to determine and non of ...

This might a bit of a stretch using the following circuitous / tortuous logic, however, let me explain A) The Luke 14:25-33 bible passage verses is about the sacrifice/challenges in regard to being a disciple of Jesus Christ B) It is important to note being a disciple of Jesus Christ does mean that we should live out the Christian life according to The Bible ...

No, I don't see anyway they are instructions. Not just because Jesus isn't using them as instructions(like you said, his point is clearly about discipleship), but because what Jesus is saying is such plain common sense. No one needs to instruct you to check if you have enough money to afford the building of a tower; you'd have to be a fool if you didn't ...
