Continuing with Part (3) Having examined modern Judaism and compared it with the spiritual meaning of Judaism in the Bible, one can only conclude that modern Judaism, biblically understood, is a false religion and should be treated as such. By this we do not mean that its adherents should be treated with disparagement, but we […]

Jesus’ Teaching About the Land

This is a very good essay presented by Robert L. Reymond at Knox Theological Seminary in 2006 on the topic of “Who Owns the Land”. (HT to Psalms115three blog). Below is only one section of this presentation, which I hope those who visit here will take time to read and study in it’s entirety. Jesus’ Teaching […]

The Substance is come and the Shadow has gone; and we do not remember it

“Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my […]

Will there be a third temple built in Jerusalem? by Hershel Lee Harvell Jr.

The purpose of this short article is to examine the question: Will there be a third temple built in Jerusalem? First, I want to make it very clear that I am not writing this because I haven’t studied Dispensationalism and therefore don’t know the system, like I ought, in order to make an informed conclusion […]

The impossibility of a restoration of the earthly nation of Israel and other abolished shadows of the old covenant

More scripture then usual, but instead of just linking to these chapters in Hebrews I felt to post them in their entirety, if for only my own benefit. I want to be able to refer back to this post in the days ahead as my hope is to post portions of a study on the […]

Keeping the Feasts?

By Peter Cohen, Messianic Good News Should Christians keep (or celebrate) the feasts that were prescribed under the Old Covenant or have they become obsolete under the New Covenant? Is there any harm in observing the old covenant feasts even if there is no obligation to do so? What about observing the Sabbath? The command to […]

The Claims of the New Testament

From part (2) in the series, Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth, by Kevin Daly “A basic problem I see in your hermeneutical principle is you seem to use the New Testament to interpret what the Old Testament says, but I think that is the wrong way to go about it.”  ~ Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum Scripture […]

Who are the 144,000 in Revelation?

It is not uncommon for people to believe the appearance of the 144,000 is something yet to happen in the future. I have met individuals who felt they were called “to train the 144,000”. One had purchased property in the desert for this purpose, another a large ranch in the mountains. Back in the early […]

Who are the Jewish People? ~ Is God gathering Jewish people back to the land?

An excellent three part teaching is up at  Messianic Good News, The question of “Who is a Jew?” remains a contentious and unresolved issue, relating as it does to the ‘Law of Return’ and the nature of the ‘Jewish State’ as well as to the question of whether Jewishness is necessarily connected with either the […]

The Temple of the Holy Spirit

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?” I Corinthians 3:16 O Brother, do believe that you are the temple of the living God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you ! You have been sealed with the Holy Spirit; He is […]

Israel and the Church: (Part 1)

I’ve been doing a lot of reading this week on the topic of Israel, the Church, and Christian Zionism. One book in particular, Christian Zionism; Road – Map to Armageddon by Stephen Sizer, has been very interesting due not only to the author’s research but to the numerous quotes contained in the book from a […]

Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters (conclusion)

This series has prompted a good discussion so far! I’m studiously reading your comments, and pondering on the many excellent points being offered… Part (1) – Part (2) *Read Acts 2 WHERE DID THE SPIRIT DESCEND AT PENTECOST? For the purpose of a better understanding of the foregoing prophetic vision of Ezekiel, and because, moreover, […]

Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters..Part (2)

See Part (1) THE PURPOSE OF THE VISION What then was the immediate purpose of this vision? I think this question has a simple answer in the light of the passage itself and that of other Scriptures. Ezekiel prophesied during the captivity. That captivity was to be of seventy years duration, as predicted by Jeremiah. […]

Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters..Part (1)

(This is an edited version of chapter 12 of Philip Mauro’s book, ‘The Hope of Israel‘) Messianic Good News: Ezekiel’s Temple and the outflow of living waters – Where did the Spirit descend at Pentecost? Chapters 40 to 46 inclusive of the Book of Ezekiel contain the record of a vision given to that prophet, […]


Messianic Good News has began a new prophecy series which I’m looking forward to. Their studies have been a blessing to me for years. The three part series is titled, PROPHECY UNVEILED: A simple outline of prophecy as it has unfolded to bring about God’s plan of redemption, with the emphasis on Christ as the […]

Answering Pat Robertson and Hal Lindsey

If you agree or disagree with Pastor Bill Barnwell, this makes for interesting reading; as well, it raises legitimate questions concerning a rebuilt Temple which many students of Prophecy are anticipating. (written in 2005) quote.. One of the strangest teachings from proponents of dispensationalism is the assertion that the ancient Jewish temple will be rebuilt. […]

Return of the Judaizers?

Sent out by Andrew Strom today.. RETURN of THE JUDAIZERS? –by Andrew Strom I have friends who call Jesus “Yeshua”. I don’t mind it at all. I have other friends who keep the Saturday Sabbath. It doesn’t bother me too much, unless there is a kind-of “aggressive attitude” about it. But in recent years I […]

The Dark Side of Joseph

You may find this as interesting as I did, though admittedly, it’s very controversial. Posted by Mishel at Deception Bytes: “Was Joseph really a type of Christ or a type and shadow of the coming AntiChrist?  The following article is used by permission from a source who wishes to remain anonymous. It is a fascinating […]

Ark of the Covenant Announcement Due Today

There has been speculation surrounding the Ark of the Covenant for ages. My opinion has always been that if something were suddenly to be found or brought out, it would not be real. And an even worse possibility is that it could be cause for great deception. Over the years I’ve not changed my opinion. […]

Leprosy in the ‘House’…

Tonight a sermon I happen to hear from years ago titled Leprosy in the House, came to my mind. After going to the scriptures which I recalled being applied at the time, it dawned on me how much false teachings, false doctrine, and serious errors were likened to ‘leprosy’ in the House of God: House, […]
