    FYI: Here's a famous quote from Habakkuk:

    "...the just shall live by his faith." (Habakkuk 2.4).

    The whole New Testament is contained in the Old. They just didn’t have the narrative.

    Habakkuk 2 3
    " For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."

    There is a wondrous unity to Scripture! Justification by faith - according to Hebrews 11 - is deeply rooted in the Old Testament.

    The Habakkuk quote is particularly pithy...

    It's to do with Israel; I don't see the church in the Old Testament. :)

    Israel - earthly; church - heavenly.

    Israel: existed before Pentecost; church: started at Pentecost.

    You mean, you're less sure about Pentecost? or what...

    It's part of the first principles of a dispensational understanding of Scripture.

    @Waiting on him PS: I think your question about Israel and the church does revolve to some extent about the Bride of Christ /Wife of Jehovah definitions.

    It's remarkable how unfamiliar passages in the Minor Prophets can suddenly show a highly familiar quote! :)

    Brother I value everything you post, because you don’t seem to Lord it as many do if that makes since? I read the article, Israel as the wife I understood this previously. Where I get Jambed up is he’s promised us children, the New Testament language is spiritualy rich with it. He wouldn’t have children out of wedlock. I believe it’s already been consummated and is being consummated continually now.
