The answer to this is found back in 48:5 where "it" is found: (both the nasb in the footnotes, and the old King James, are acknowledging the actual Hebrew) "It" being indicative of what the former Prophets were saying before "it" in fact came true, God saying "it" before they could give credit to their Idols. The last ...

Just as with the gold on the temple, these hypocrites put more emphasis on the material gift than the spiritual altar that sanctified the gift. Jesus revealed that the motives behind the gift are more important than the gift itself (Luke 21:1-4 and 1 Corinthians 13:3). An inferior material gift given with the proper motives is recognized by God as superior ...

Revelation 10:7 '...the mystery of God should be finished' means that the MYSTERY OF WHO GOD IS becomes apparent. Conversely the MYSTERY OF WHO IS AN IMPOSTER GOD becomes apparent also in this process. This is a question of identity. YHWH is no longer confused with other gods. How this is achieved is not quite clear. It may relate to the two witnesses of ...

The Phillip of Acts 8 was most likely the Apostle and not the deacon described in Acts 6 as is commonly held. One need only look at the reason the deacons in Acts 6 were chosen. Acts 6:2-4 make it clear that they were chosen to free up the Apostles for preaching the word. God knew the Apostles needed a nudge to leave Jerusalem. Gaza and Azotus were not ...

Firstly, the meaning of statutes is a rule, a prescribed regulation, in hebrew חֹק: As in the following: רַ֛ק אַדְמַ֥ת הַכֹּהֲנִ֖ים לֹ֣א קָנָ֑ה כִּי֩ חֹ֨ק לַכֹּהֲנִ֜ים מֵאֵ֣ת פַּרְעֹ֗ה וְאָֽכְל֤וּ אֶת־חֻקָּם֙ אֲשֶׁ֨ר נָתַ֤ן לָהֶם֙ פַּרְעֹ֔ה עַל־כֵּ֕ן לֹ֥א מָכְר֖וּ אֶת־אַדְמָתָֽם׃ This word simply means assigned as we see in the english version: 22 However,...

Note the several parallels between these references: Eze 11:19, 20 - And I will give them singleness of heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh, so that they may follow My statutes, keep My ordinances, and practice them. Then they will be My people, and I will be their God. Eze 36:24-26 - For ...

The angels mentioned in Peter 2:4 seem to be the same angels mentioned in Jude 1:6. For if God did not spare the angels having sinned, but having cast them down to Tartarus, in chains of gloomy darkness,a delivered them, being kept for judgment. Peter 2:4 And the angels who kept not their principality, but forsook their own habitation, he hath reserved ...

Some points to consider … you have conflated several verses, and the common point is ‘vengeance’. But, you seem to be assuming that the source of each/all of these is the same. This may not be necessarily the case .. First, let’s look at your Q When did Jesus says these days of Vengeance would occur? Jesus reads the first part of Isaiah’s prophecy… but then ...

There are several answers to this question, none of which will satisfy everybody. However, to answer the OP's original question requires two further questions: When were these angels chained? Where were they chained? The answer to the second question is possibly easier because we have the following facts: The only other place where demons or the Devil ...

In the verse you mentioned it's not demons as can be related to possession, even though there can be a relation. The word here implies the descendent of the giants, this is, the Nephilim (נְפִילִים‎), derived from לִנְפֹּל or even לִפֹּל both meaning "to fall", this is, they are the sons of a relation between human women (בְּנ֣וֹת הָֽאָדָ֔ם) and ...

It's obvious that in every case "eleh toledoth" serves to introduce what follows. Such is the case which introduces the story of Gan Eden and many other such cases, as David (above) lists. It can be said that concrete proof for this hypothesis is the usage in B'midbar (Numbers 33.1) "These are the journeys of the Children of Israel...." ...

Let us examine the text of Jer 30:18-21: 18 This is what the LORD says: “I will restore the fortunes of Jacob’s tents and have compassion on his dwellings. And the city will be rebuilt on her own ruins, and the palace will stand in its rightful place. 19 Thanksgiving will proceed from them, a sound of celebration. I will multiply them, and they will not be ...
