|Are any of you ladies and gentleman on the Forum familiar with McClintock and Strong Encyclopedia? (in twelve volumes) And if you are, how would you personally rate it on a scale from 1 to 10. 10 being good, and 1 being bad. How reliable is it as a reference? Thank you,
|2||70A.D. or not?||Matt 16:28||Brian#9||183943|
You are not the only one that is benefiting from this post. This is a two way street.
Questions to be asked about the time from the Cross to 70A.D. and until now.
Matt. 24:14; "in ALL the world," "unto ALL nations," (heathen) did this happen?
Matt. 24:15; did this happen?
Matt.24:21; has this happen?
Matt. 24:22; tribulation so great that no 'flesh'(man) saved, the days are shortened so the 'elect'(remnant)would be?
Matt. 24:27; was His Coming as noticeable as this?
Matt. 24:29; did this happen?
Matt. 24:30 did the tribes (Israelites) mourn at the sight of Jesus Coming with Power and great Glory?
Matt. 24:31; did a trumpet sound and all the 'elect' [ NT:1588 eklektos, eklektee, eklekton (eklegoo), (from Thayer's Greek Lexicon)(without the genitive Theou), Matt. 24:22 (with the addition of tou Christou, as the genitive possessor), Matt. 24:31 ] come from four winds, and from one of heaven to the other?
Tom, verse 14; (not yet - to possible) today.
As for verses 15,21,22,27,29,30 and 31 not yet, but getting close?
Sorry about the 'hear' and not 'here' in my last post.
You and I both agree that Jesus did not know when the Father was to have Him return. How could He predict an alleged time frame?( generation - being 30-40 years or whatever )
He did know that a remnant would be saved.(Deu. 28:13)
He did know that He could come at any time. (Luke 12:40, 2 Peter 3:10, 1 Thess. 5:2, Rev. 16:15)
If He knew that He was Coming back during that time frame, why did He teach His imminent return?
Is not the primary definition of generation (genea) race, kind, family, stock, and breed?
Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that the difference between the primary and secondary meaning of a word, and our English is the root of our differences. Is this true?

|3||70A.D. or not?||Matt 16:28||Brian#9||183889|
How important is it that Jesus came back in 70A.D. or not? Anything my Lord and Savior dose is important to me. And if He did not why are they teaching it?
Quote " I believe the disciples hearing Jesus say to them,"34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled." could have no other understanding than that their generation - them and others living at that time - were the ones meant, and that after all signs detailed from verse 4-33 were fulfilled, then would be His Coming."
Tom do you believe Jesus came back in 70A.D.yes or no?
"I agree He couldn't reveal more than the Father would allow and to do so would be a sin.Moreover, to say He didn't know if He did know would also be a sin." We are in total agreement hear.
Do you believe that Matt. 24:34 is part of the proof that Jesus came back in 70A.D.?
Still looking for Truth,
P.S. God's days ,He is the only one that counts.
|4||Why 70 A.D. and why predictions||Matt 16:28||Brian#9||183837|
I will ask you the same questions.
Why 70 A.D.?
Matt. 16:28; explain 'some'. In 70 A.D. John was the only one alive. Then His Coming in 70 A.D. would be contradicting Jesus.
Matt 24:34; 'generation' as a period of time or time frame thereby saying Jesus was predicting His Coming. Only the Father knows as you pointed out.Jesus did not and could not reveal any more than what the Father warranted Him to reveal.(John 17:8, John 15:15, John 8:26) Jesus was under the authority of the Father.(John 12:48, John 12:50, John 5:30, John 5:19, John 8:28, John 14:10, John 15:10, John 14:24, John 17:14)
Christ was the Mediator of the Father's Will. Remember Acts 1:7 and Mark 13:33. To reveal more would be a sin, right?
If Jesus came back as King of kings, and Lord of lords In 70 A.D. did the MT. of Olive split in half? (Zech. 14:4) Did everybody in the world see Him? (Matt. 24:30) What about the sun, moon, stars , and the powers of heaven shaken? (Matt. 24:29)
As we do not know when Jesus is to return are we not suppose to be in readiness, watchfulness, prayerfulness with our hearts on things above (Luke 12:34) and not things of the world (Matt. 6:24-33).
It has not been two days since Jesus was here. ( 2 Peter 3:8)
In Quest of Truth,
|5||Why 70 AD. and why predictions?||Matt 16:28||Brian#9||183746|
Following this post has raised some questions. Would you please answer them so I will be able to understand better?
Why 70 AD? The temple was not the earthly dwelling place of God. We the believers are from Pentecost on, no need for one made of stone.
The priesthood-Jesus Christ is our high priest and advocate at the Fathers right hand.
The sacrifices- Jesus paid that at the cross. The veil was torn from the top to the bottom at His death.
All of these happen before 70 AD.
You seem to view Matt 16:24 as a prediction that Jesus did know when He was coming back. What about Matt. 24:36, Mark 13:32,( only the Father knows ).
As John was the only one that was alive in 70 AD. which would mean that he alone would have seen the Coming. How do you explain 'some'?
Matt. 24:34 No predictions, He did not know. Would not generations be defined as progeny rather than a time frame?

|6||Conflict between business and pastor||2 Thess 3:8||Brian#9||182699|
|I have a question. How could a pastor find the time to run and own a business and pastor a church at the same time?
Yes some of Christ's disciples were fisherman 'before' being called. Christ was a carpenter 'before' His time. And Paul resumed tent making as a occupation when necessary for personal support. I find it hard to believe that a pastor with a demanding schedule, getting up early, burning the midnight oil in prayer and the study of the Word. With the burden to reach as many souls for Christ as he can could own and run a business. Unless he only owned it in name only. Otherwise there seems to be a conflict of interests. Would he not have to leave one to become a pastor? Which brings to mind what I heard Dr. Lee Roberson say. "A pastor never retires" He is 97.

|7||How do you come to your conclusion of pe||Rev 17:10||Brian#9||181859|
My question is that if you believe the kings in Rev. 17:10 are people, how do you come to that conclusion? And with that information I see no reason why six of the kings could not be identified.
Where as Seiss brings forth many points to uphold his position that the kings are world powers and could not be persons. As he has identified the six in the verse, then the seventh should be the one world government of the end times.
As Seiss (Seiss Apocalypse ) pointed out the six world powers (Rome in John's day, Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, and Egypt ), have all carried the idolatrous Harlot Woman, and so will the seventh. This position of the kings being world powers also harmonizes Daniel's visions and John's visions. Understandable due to the fact that both have the same Source.
Trying to fully understand all the verses of the Bible is trying to understand the Mind of Christ.
As much as this pea-brain human can understand, and yes I want to know.
Still searching the Mind of Christ,
|8||If persons then identify.||Rev 17:10||Brian#9||181814|
Thank you for the reply and another resource (revelation commentary.org/17-chapter.html ) My statement was that Seiss in Seiss Apocalypse called them world powers not persons that is all. Looking for the best explanation that matches the Bible. If they are persons then the six ought to be easy to identify. Only the seventh still not known. Who do you say they are, that matches the Bible? Or more information like that above.
Again thank you,
|9||Persons or World Powers?||Rev 17:10||Brian#9||181754|
|Hello Tim Moran,
On reading your post I decided to read my electronic copy of Seiss Apocalypse Rev 17:1-17, If I may quote a portion of it,"They are Greece, Persia, Babylon, Assyria, and Egypt; no more and no less. And these all were imperial powers like Rome. Here, then are six of these regal mountains; the seventh is not yet come. When it comes it is to endure but a short time. This implies that each of the others continues a log time; and so, again could not mean the dictators, decemvirs, and military tribunes of the early history of Rome, for some of them lasted but a year or two.Thus, then, by the clearest, most direct, and most natural signification of words of the record, we are brought to the identification of these seven mountain kings as the seven great world-powers, which stretch from the beginning of our present world to the end of it. Daniel makes the number less; but he started with his own times, and looked only down the stream. Here the account looks backward as well as forward. What is first in Daniel is the third here, and that which is the sixth here is the fourth in Daniel. Only the commencing point is there any difference. The visions of Daniel and the visions of John are from the same Divine Mind, and they perfectly harmonize, only that the latest are the amplest. By these seven great powers then, filling up the whole interval of this world's history, this great Harlot is said to be carried."
Sir the above quote identifies the seven as great world powers. How did you come to the conclusion that they are persons? Is there another source that you have that supports that the seven are persons?

Would please explain what you mean by; 1)"We have to rethink the meaning of 'sin' and 'salvation' in the ultimate plan of GOD."
2) "What we might call 'evil' might be part of HIS creative plan and purpose."
