I thought this was a good answer that I found on got questions. Looking again at Luke 21:24, we see that Jesus mentions a time in which Jerusalem is under the dominion of Gentile authority. Nebuchadnezzar’s conquest of Jerusalem in 588 BC began that period, and it has continued through the present time. Romans 11:25 gives us a hint as to God’s purpose in the ...

In the first place, the Greek word καιροὶ = times, plural. The text of Luke 21 does not identify when these "times" were to begin. However, we have some very good clues based on the use of the plural word καιροὶ. Matt 16:3 - and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance ...

You state the passages you quote “point to the end times”. However you really can’t ‘lump’ these together - Yes they are about end times, but, actually very different ‘times’ in the end times. We need to see where these two, the Matthew passages and the Daniel passage fit. And, as anything that is eschatological, there are going to be differing views, ...

Daniel 12: 9 He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are rolled up and sealed until the time of the end. 10 Many will be purified, made spotless and refined, but the wicked will continue to be wicked. None of the wicked will understand, but those who are wise will understand. The word "many" is a relative term. Here it is contrasted ...

Executive Summary Two times are given in Ezekiel 4, indicating two separate prophetic periods. Both periods are presented in days which represent years, and the years of their prophecies are 390 years and 40 years. Both prophecies are linked to sins: the sins of Israel and of Judah, respectively. Those sins are what mark the beginning points of the ...

There is a problem in understanding about the term "Land". Actually when the Bible speaks about a nation, land, it's about the people or the group of people. Isaiah 62:5 speaks about God rejoicing over His sons. Because when the people follow His commandments and do His will, then He will be glad. But, thinking that the sons will marry the land is ...

To find the answer, I consulted The Companion Bible (Bullinger). It had this preface to the book of Nahum, which helps clarify the matter. "Nahum concludes the seven pre-captivity Prophets... and corresponding with Jonah, which also has Nineveh for its subject. Some 87 years before, Jonah had proclaimed Jehovah's favour to Nineveh, which had prolonged ...

When we read "new heavens and new earth", we must remember that evil is banished. There is no more war or deception or hurt anymore. God's kingdom is cosmic - it is everywhere. then comes the end, when he delivers up the kingdom to the God and Father, when he has abolished all rule and all authority and power. 1Cor 15:24 All life is now 'not' ...

The subject of the "burden" of the prophecy in Nahum 1 is explicitly given in the first verse, namely, נִֽינְוֵ֑ה Nineveh. The name does not explicitly appear again in the rest of the chapter. However, most versions interpretatively re-insert the name "Nineveh" in V11 and 14 to make the underlying Hebrew clearer. Some also add it in V8 ...

NIV gives more interpretive details, Nahum 1: 12This is what the Lord says: “Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be destroyed and pass away. Although I have afflicted you, Judah, I will afflict you no more. 13Now I will break their yoke from your neck and tear your shackles away.” 14 The Lord has given a command concerning you, Nineveh: “...

This is an eschatological question. Therefore this interpretation I outline may not be universally accepted, so exercise caution. This kingdom is on earth. We know this through the many Kingdom parables Jesus taught. But first Jesus has to ‘win back’ this Kingdom. That’s what his second coming is for. We see this here… 1 COR 15:24 Then comes the end, when he ...

Psalm 83: 5 With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you— 6 the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, 7 Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre. 8 Even Assyria has joined them to reinforce Lot’s descendants. The Hagrites were defeated in 1 Chronicles 5: 10 During Saul’s reign they waged ...

Matthew‬ ‭26: 29 I tell you I will not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.

The Father's kingdom refers to Heaven, and not to this earth. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

Jerusalem The entire world really. Revelation 21: 1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, ...

Perhaps one cannot answer this question definitively due to the ambiguity of the pronoun referent. The best we can do is make an educated guess based on logic. The strongest argument for it being the musician is the grammatical one of the nearest antecedent. All other arguments favor Elisha. Let’s look at your 5 supposedly in favor of the musician. By ...

A footnote more than an answer - Some answers, example Tony’s, have already outlined a fulfilment of this passage. But there is more to understand. You say … “Im not sure whether this prophecy has been fulfilled or not.” - and there is, as said, some. But, you need to understand what prophecy means, not in our western understanding, but in Hebraic terms - ...

Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled? With regard to when this chapter and verse was/is to be fulfilled, one can only really argue for the first destruction of Jerusalem and it's temple, by way of the Babylonians led by King Nebuchadnezzar, basically, as there was to be a restoration thereafter. Whereas there was no qualitative restoration thereafter after the ...

Psalms 83:5 "For they have consulted together with one consent: They hare confederate against Thee: The religious leaders of today formed their own traditions, and pattern of thought, and they stick together like glue.

Yes. I think the spiritual fulfillment is about the 7 churches in Revelation. A woman generally symbolizes a church, like the bride of Christ being the church. Bread is symbolic of like...doctrine, knowledge,beliefs. ( So breaking bread depicts opening up knowledge so that you can consume, digest, take it into you) Clothing depicts what you're covered by.....

Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled? Has this prophecy been fulfilled? Yes, with the fall of Jerusalem to the Babylonians. Wars obviously created a severe shortage of marriageable men, so women took hold of a man to have his name and so be married, being married took their reproach away. A husband legally had to provide food, clothing, and shelter for his wives, ...

Has Isaiah 4:1 been fulfilled? Yes, Gill: in the days of Vespasian and Titus, and in the time of their wars with the Jews; in which were made such slaughters of men, that there were not enough left for every woman to have a husband; and therefore "seven", or a great many, sue to one man to marry them, contrary to their natural bashfulness.

This "problem" is not unique to Zeph 3:9 where people are told to use the name of יְהוָ֔ה YHWH/Jehovah, etc. Heb 1:6 quotes the LXX of Deut 32:43 about YHWH and applies it to Jesus Heb 1:8, 9 quotes Ps 45:6, 7 about YHWH and applies it to Jesus Heb 1:10-12 quotes the LXX of Ps 102:25-27 about YHWH and applies it to Jesus Phil 2:10, 11 quotes Isa ...

Yeshua (Iesous) means YHVH's Savior . Praying is essentially to call upon. We call upon THE LORD (YHVH), and we can be named by The Lord. Or to carry His name. Matthew 6:9-13 (kjv) 9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

In Hebrew, God's name is and always has been "Yehovah" (I prefer spelling it as "Jehovah"). In Greek, the name of the Son of Man, the Messiah in whom the Father dwelt, is "Jesus (Christ)." Jesus said: I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. (John 5:43, ...

Isaiah 8:4 "For before the child shall have knowledge to cry, 'My father, and my mother,' the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria shall be taken away." It means before this son of Isaiah gets big enough to even say a word (mother and father), the riches of Damascus and the spoil of Samaria will be gone. Remember that Damascus was the ...

I agree with Dottard's answer. Here I'll supplement a little. Isaiah 5: 1 I will sing for my beloved a song of his vineyard: My beloved had a vineyard on a very fertile hill. In terms of genre, Isaiah 5:1-7 is a song. It is poetry filled with emotive words. On the other hand, Jesus was speaking prose in Luke 13: 6Then he told this parable: “A man had a ...

Isaiah 8: 3 And I went to the prophetess, and she conceived and bore a son.

This might be a different direction that you were asking (sorry if I misread) Part of the distinction you are seeing is an important change between the Old and New Covenants with the relationship of the Covenant Creator and the people with whom He covenants. In the covenant of Moses and Israel, God reveals for the first time His name (YHWH), and permits ...

A name is a written or verbal denotation of a person. The person here is the Almighty Creator God. Let's say "Iésous" denotes this person. English people use a different notation: "Jesus"; Chinese: "耶穌"; etc. There is no unique notation for this unique person. Now, let's say "Yehovah" denotes this person. Some argue ...

There are too many differences for Luke 13 to be alluding to Isa 5.

That’s why the apostle Paul instructed us to study the scriptures that we might rightly divide truth from error. My sister what was prophesied by the Prophet Jeremiah is clearly stated in chapter 31: the name Rachael was lent to the time of Herod killing all male children from two years old and under fulfilling the prophecy of Jeremiah shalom.

In the ultimate futurist sense, it's a prophecy of the 6th Trump, prior to the 7th (second advent). Jerusalem is where anti-Christ steps foot, 2 Thessalonians 2. This becomes the epicenter for what is already in the works the one world order as described in Revelation 13 of the First beast. Forewarned; as per God's plan.

The unnamed city of Zeph 3:1 is Jerusalem for the following reasons: The prophet Zephaniah was based in Jerusalem, the capital of Judah during the time of "Josiah son of Amon king of Judah" (Zeph 1:1) Zephaniah had just pronounced prophecies against Judah as a whole (Zeph 2:1-3), the Philistines (Zeph 2:4-7), Moab and Ammon (Zeph 2:8-11), Cush and ...

The phrase translated as 'cleared it of stones' is not the Hebrew noun, 'even, which means stone, but the verb yesaqqelen, which comes from the verb saqal, meaning, to stone someone. E.g. to kill them by throwing rocks at them. Here, the reverse is meant, e.g. to make the land fertile by removing the rocks in the soil. These rocks (large rocks) would then be ...

Isaiah 62:10 Pass through, pass through the gates! Prepare the way for the people. Build up, build up the highway! Remove the stones. Raise a banner for the nations. Removing the stones is a routine for clearing the space. It has no special significance.

Biblically speaking the matter should be clear without the aid of commentaries. Consider Jesus' own words: And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath: Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath. (Mark 2:27-28, KJV) This shows Jesus as having made the claim that he was the Lord of the Sabbath, i.e. that the ...

Each element in a parable, being a short story, is indispensable to the plot, but may or may not have metaphoric significance. Let us treat these two aspects separately.

Verses 29-30 say that Antiochus’ fourth invasion would not end in his favor. The last invasion “shall not be like the former or the latter.” 29 What prompted this fourth invasion was the unification of his nephews, Ptolemy VI and Physcon (Ptolemy VIII). Both had come to suspect the plans of Antiochus and agreed to join their forces and rule Egypt jointly. ...

I think Jonah's whale journey is a lesson about being born again. In the belly of the whale, Jonah repented he came out of the belly of the whale smelling like perfume and bleached whiter than snow. This reminds me of the Glory of Christ and the transfiguration.

We are not told the answer to this question, however, there is a distinct possibility that Dagon, the fish god worshiped by the Ninevites (and the Philistines) helped Jonah's fame.

These ideas are not mutually exclusive: “The Lord is at Hand” can mean both. It can mean that we are to act as if the return of the Lord is imminent per the OT prophecies quoted above. It can also mean that we are to act as if the Lord was near us in out daily walk with Him. Janavel

Here are a few prophecies that have a dual fulfillment: Matt 24:3 - While Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will (a) these things happen, and (b) what will be the sign of Your coming and of the end of the age?” Thus, Jesus combined the destruction of Jerusalem with the end of the ...
