This is my first time coming across Zechariah 8:23 and having red this verse, this verse speak about the future kingdom of God, I thought ten men refers to ten lost tribes of Israel in which China is one as Isaiah reference it in Isaiah 49:12.
Isaiah 55:11 (ESV):
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
οὕτως ἔσται τὸ ῥῆμά μου ὃ ἐὰν ἐξέλθῃ ἐκ τοῦ στόματός μου, οὐ μὴ ἀποστραφῇ ἕως ἂν τελεσθῇ ὅσα ἠθέλησα, καὶ εὐοδώσω τὰς ὁδούς σου καὶ τὰ ἐντάλματά μου.
This statement cannot be understood apart from 4:5 which reads
“And there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God
The seven spirits which are the seven lamps of fire that burn before to throne are the seven churches to whom this revelation is sent (verse 20),
“As for the mystery of the seven stars which you ...
But if you read further down Jesus speaks of not being hurt by the second death if they remain faithful. That means once having faith then afterward falling and becoming unfaithful. It speaks to losing salvation I believe
I believe Paul is teaching that in this new covenant all matters are fulfilled (completed not abolished) spiritually. There is therefore no physical temple & no point to Christ offering physical sacrifices as the sacrifices in this new covenant are now spiritual.
The support for a spiritual vs physical temple is found in:
Revelation 21:22 I did not ...
First, the passage in Mark 16:9-20 is highly disputed and many do NOT believe it should be part of the Biblical canon. However, for the sake of this question, let us consider the text without the matter of textual criticism.
The text of Mark 16:17 lists several phenomena:
And these signs will accompany those who believe:
In My name they will drive out ...
I confess I have never heard any charge that Daniel prophesied there would be a change from the Jewish Sabbath observance to Sunday worship. The former starts from sundown on Friday (the 7th day of the Jewish week) and the latter starts from midnight on Sunday (the 1st day of the Jewish week). All I have heard is that some people claim it was the Catholic ...
To “speak words against the Most High” trying (NIV) “to change the times and the law” has to be anti God as in promoting unclean and evilness, and would refer to the in the Bible prophesied coming “Anti Christ”.
Shall persecute (NKJ) “the saints of the Most High" and " the saints shall be given into his hand for a time and times and half a time&...
This will not answer the question but provide some background. (The answer to this question is impossible without a grander scheme of eschatology and prophetic interpretation.)
The two words at question here are:
זִמְנִ֣ין (zimnin) = times
The root word זְמָן occurs only 11 times in the OT, all but one (Ezra 5:3) occur in Aramaic portion of Daniel, namely, ...

Optional info>>>. Nehemiah 13:16 really does not fit the context of Isaiah 23: 18 , which is a positive statement regarding necessary food and clothing sanctioned by God ; possibly for ,or during a transition period in the future times of restitution ,when mankind will need the food for an imperfect physical body ... As the general resurrection ...
I think it means Phoenician Tyre would be permanently done for. And sure enough, Alexander devastated and replaced Phoenician Tyre. See link below on how, "Regarding Phoenician Tyre (i.e. the city prophesied against): The empire was erased. The structures were left in waste. The people were replaced." https://beliefmap.org/prophecy-fulfilled/tyre/...
What is “the end” in Daniel 8:19?
Gabriel tells Daniel in Daniel 8:19:
"I am going to let you know what will occur at the final period of
indignation, for it pertains to the appointed time of the end." (NASB)
"Time of the end"
"Time of the end" of what? This expression refers to to the end of the present earthly wicked system ...
Let's see the context.
Daniel 8:17 So he came near to where I was standing, and when he came I was frightened and fell on my face; and he said to me, “Son of man, understand that the vision pertains to the time of the end.”
18Now while he was talking with me, I was dazed with my face to the ground; but he touched me and made me stand at my place. 19And he ...
Unfortunately, I can only scratch the surface of this subject here. Recall what is said in dozens of passages, including these three:
1 Thessalonians 4:
“Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.”
1 Thessalonians 5:2
“For you yourselves know ...
Verb "Tenses" in Hebrew
The two verbs in Deut 34:10 are:
קָ֨ם (qam) = Qal-perfect verb; "has arisen"
יְדָע֣וֹ (yedaow) = Qal-perfect verb; "knew"
There is no such thing as future tense in Hebrew - such must be inferred from some other subtleties in the sentence.

No. The verbs in Hebrew (see this interlinear comparison are in the "Qal-Perfect" tense, not the future tense. See this article for an explanation and examples at the bottom.

There are 4 figures of importance who are evil that the Book of Revelation introduces:
First, the Dragon or Satan, that old serpent (Revelation 12:9 …”9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world…”) The DRAGON, Satan, is worshipped for giving the beast power Revelation 13:4 ”And they ...
The history of the Amalekites is long and tortuous (see appendix below). However, I note that there are several prophecies of the final annihilation of the Amalekites such as:
Ex 17:14-16 - Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this on a scroll as a reminder and recite it to Joshua, because I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.” And ...
What does the “Blood” & “Sea” & the “Great Mountain” mean?
John fortold events to come (Rev. 1:1) so what does this verse mean and what do the

mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part
of the sea became blood; 9} And the third part ...
