Hi, everyone! It’s been a long while since I’ve posted; although, I have lurked a little here and there. Some of my last posts were on a thread concerning Mormonism (and, I think, maybe Buddhism).
When I was a child, I had an aunt and uncle who became Mormons (also called LDS, Latter Day Saints). As far as I knew, it was just another Christian denomination with a few unusual practices, like abstaining from coffee and storing two year’s worth of food.
A few years after I became a Christian, I read a book cowritten by an ex-Mormon, and I was shocked to learn that this group that calls itself Christian has very few beliefs that strictly line up with the Bible. I saw that this especially applies to their beliefs about Jesus Christ....
4 though I also might have confidence in the flesh. If anyone else thinks he may have confidence in the flesh, I more so:
5 circumcised the eighth day, of the stock of Israel, of the tribe of Benjamin, a Hebrew of the Hebrews; concerning the law, a Pharisee;
6 concerning zeal, persecuting the church; concerning the righteousness which is in the law, blameless.
The above is Paul’s former relationship with God through religion.
7 But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ

Matthew 6:26-34 King James Version (KJV)
26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?
28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
30 Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we...

Your Power is in Your Saying and Believing | Jesse Duplantis === Good theology!!! ==Truth and fun too!!!
Matthew 19:7-8 They say unto him, Why did Moses then command to give a writing of divorcement, and to put her away?  He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
“...because of the hardness or your hearts.” Moses suffered you to put away your wives. Odd, those Jesus Christ is speaking to —the Pharisees trying to tempt Him as those in the wilderness) Christ says “because of the hardness of your hearts” even back with Moses “for the hardness of your heart he wrote this precept.” In foreshadowing God removing a heart of stone and giving a new heart, a new spirit. Mark 10:2-5 And the Pharisees came to him, and asked him, Is it...
God's two olive trees, the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth, go up in a Rapture.
 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
A thought-provoking question: are the two witnesses actually two of the seven Churches as described by Jesus earlier in Revelation? Jesus compared the Churches to candlesticks just as he described the two witnesses.
 I [Jesus] am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for...

Ezekiel 40 through 48 will give you everything on this subject ,so lets go there.
Ezekiel chapters forty through forty eight are discussing only the Millennium age time period, and the Temple and "oblation", or offerings and sacrifices that will take place during that time period. When we are talking about the "Temple" it is actually a mistake to speak of the wonderful series of courts and buildings, described in these final chapters of Ezekiel, collectively as "the Temple". The proper term is "The Sanctuary", as the description starts to unfold in chapter 40.
Notice that the governing figure of the dimensions given throughout the last eight chapters, not only in...
