The Third Temple * Revisited*

The Jewish people have not had a Temple since the destruction of the second Temple in 70 AD by the Romans. The plans are underway and have been for sometime to rebuild the third Temple as prophesied. Mark 13:14 But when ye shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judea flee to the mountains: Christian eyes are closely watching this event as it will signify the close return of YAHSHUA. As we know there will be a falling first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition,2 Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. The church will witness the Anti-Christ standing where IT ought not. This will be the beginning of the three-and-a half years of Daniel's seventieth week. Daniel 9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week:and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon desolate. YAHSHUA raised the ONLY temple that could take away the sins of the world. Hebrews 9:11-14 But Christ being come a high priest of good things to come, by greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say not of this building 12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and ashes of a heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from the dead works to serve the living God? Children of YAHWEH, do you see? The TEMPLE that TOOK away the sins of the world sits at the right hand of YAHWEH. YAHSHUA is the mediator between man and God. Keep watching, praying, and saying COME YAHSHUA! Thank you Holy Spirit for your guidance while writing this. In YAHSHUA, Cassie

What you wrote here is important. A puzzle piece to revelation perhaps when it comes to scripture referring to the temple. Thank you for bringing it to mind for me.

It's time!

Here is a video I created today about the Centurion.

Hi Cassie,

Actually if you look closely at Daniel 9:27 the covenant or peace treaty between Israel and Palestine will start the 70th week prophecy and the treaty will be for seven years. In the midst of the seven years, (three and a half years) the Anti-Christ man will stop the sacrifices of the rebuilt third temple and abominate it, this will start the great tribulation and the wrath of God. We are living in the beginning of sorrows now. First part of Matthew 24. I would encourage you to study this out a bit more, we are seeing prophecy fufilled before our very eyes. God Bless.

Joan The Baptist said...

Hello Tyrone,
I thank you for your comment. I am studying away. I have a couple questions for you. If we look at 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 (3) Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition: Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God. What is your understanding of this? When the falling away occurs will be at the apperance of the son of perdition. Where do you believe this will be? In Christ,Cassie

Tyrone Palmer said...

Hi Sister,

2nd Thess. 2:3-4 parallels Daniel 9:27, the scriptures are speaking about the same anti-christ man, but 2nd thess. gives more details of what this man will do. This is what I believe will abominate the temple, him sitting in the temple of God.

Rev 13:5-8 "And he was given a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies, and he was given authority to continue for forty-two months.(3 1/2yrs) Then he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme His name, His tabernacle, and those who dwell in heaven. It was granted to him to make war with the saints and to overcome them. And authority was given him over every tribe, tongue, and nation. All who dwell on the earth will worship him, whose names have not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world."

The day of the Lord will not come until the falling away comes first and the man of sin is revealed. These things will happen before the return of Jesus, the falling away has already been happening which is why we are waiting on the latter rain, (Joel 2) to restore what has been lost since the 1st century. The church of Christ today looks nothing like it did in the former rain 2000 yrs ago. The anti-christ man will be revealed in the last 3 1/2 years of the 70th week prophecy of Daniel. In the first 3 1/2 years we will see the two prophets prophesying on the streets of Jerusalem, I believe this is coming very soon, the peace treaty or covenant between Israel and Palestine is the catalyst for the beginning of the last seven years of this age. Hope this helps Cassie, I don't want to write a book :-) Tyrone

Joan The Baptist said...

Hi Brother Tyrone
No reason to write another book. :) We were both speaking the same language. The Holy Spirit kind. Amen!

Boat Living said...

Hi, I'm new to your blog. I've been reading it for a couple of weeks. I agree too that the falling away has occurred now and I even believe the latter rain has already been falling for almost 3 decades now on a few people's lives. If this is the case, then we are ready to see the son of perdition now. I might be very bold to say this, but I've thought that I might be the woman in Rev. 12 or have something very greatly to do with her. I don't know much more than what you all do. I think we all can agree that the situation over in Israel is not very good and is getting worse daily. I think we should be prepared for this war to break out. I've received no special instructions from God as to specific preparations that I can make, even though I've been fasting about it, to get through until the time the bride is taken out. I'd love to talk to people about it, discuss it, figure out what we should all be doing.

Peace Kim,
Welcome to my blog. I pray daily to the LORD that HE will guide people to this site to be informed and to inform. I praise the LORD for the gifts of the Spirit and the many blessings HE has placed in my life. I ask the Holy Spirit to guide me in ALL truth while I respond to your comment. Please forgive me for asking you this question but I want to make sure I am understanding you correctly. You mention the feeling of having something to do with or being connected with (my words)Rev. 12 The woman and the dragon. I have always believed that the woman in Rev.12 represents Israel and the twelve stars to be the twelve tribes of Israel.In the latter part of the seventieth week a remnant of Israel will flee into the wilderness to escape the persecution of Antichrist, who is called "the son of destruction," "the lawless one," and "whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan" (2 Thess. 2:1-12; cf. Rev. 12:4, 9). Jesus, in the Olivet discourse, warned the people of this time which would occur just prior to His return to set up His earthly, Millennial kingdom (Matt. 24:15-22).
I do agree there is a great falling away going on right now. The "churches" are emptying, people are confused, the doctrine of man has left most without oil in their lamps, and in these times more and more people will be blaming God for the trials and tribulations that man has brought upon himself. I look forward to hearing from you again sister Kim. May the Holy Spirit continue to guide us and inspire us in ALL truth. In Christ, Cassie

Boat Living said...

I don't know, Joan. I could be the woman in Rev. 12. I don't know if anyone really knows what she is exactly. I think as times unfold here at the end we are going to understand who she is.

I know a lot of people have thought it is Israel. I think we will be learning a lot more in days to come about this woman and the true church.

It really doesn't matter who I am because like Paul says I am who I am. What really matters is that the true church learns as much as it can here at the end. That we try and make contact with one another and help one another as much as what we can.

I certainly have a life like hers and the dragon certainly spewled out his floods at me. I did feel the earth open up once and shallow the flood already.

I think for the seriosly minded people, things are going to be unfolding now because we are at the end and those who have ears to hear will hear.

I can tell you about the falling away. It is really really bad. Most people don't have the slightest clue how really bad it is. All the ICs have fallen away now I think. I won't even go in a church anymore.

I've always had to search a lot for any answers. Right now I'm experiencing another one of those floods the dragon spewls out. I've never had a month like this last month. I'm sick, my bladder has one infection after the next. If it wasn't for God I don't think I would make it through this. I've got a cough & sorethroat on top of a bladder infection right now, can't sleep at nights. I'm going to dr. in 1 hour to get some medicine to help me.

I'm searching for people who seems to know the truth on the Internet and I found your blog here.

Somehow we've got to get the latter rain to fall on the few people that know the real truth. I don't know what this really involves. I just wait on God, He will make it clear to me.

I'm down here in Florida & I have a boat in the Gulf. I'm over on it a lot and now people are saying it's dangerous and we should be leaving. So I need your prayers for wisdom and what this oil spill and chemical rain is going to be doing. I certainly don't want to be here if it starts raining chemical and you can't breathe the air. They are saying all kinds of things are going to happen.

The true church just needs to try and find one another as much as what we can and that is what I am all about.

We all really need to be really reading the bible, and I mean reading it with our eyes open and reading every single word now.

Like for instance a lot of people are talking about the rapture, pre-trib, post-trib. I hear a lot of people quote Rev. 7:12 These are they which came out of the great tribulation. But it doesn't say that, it says There are they which came out of great tribulation. There is no "the" before the word "great".

Rev. 7:12 really has nothing to do with the great tribulation. It is just saying those were people who had come out of great tribulation. Those are our brothers and sisters who had great tribulations in their lives. Like I have. We have to study the Word to understand the end now.

We have to really be reading the Word and it will tell us, I believe, what we should do. It has the answers. I believe God is going to reveal to the remenant true church how things really happen here at the end.

It's just so hard to put into words that things I need to say. It's very hard to me to express what I even mean in thoses few short words, I hope that you understand a little here.

Kim,

I would rather not answer your comment in an open forum. Please send me your email address as a comment on my blog.I look forward to hearing from you. In Christ, Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Joan,

I believe that this is one of few blogs i've visited that deals with prophecy. So I appreciate the subject matter you deal with in this post.

It appears to me that you believe that the rebuilding of the temple will be a fulfillment of the prophesy you quoted in Mark; and that the 'abomination of desolation' spoken by Daniel would be when the anti-Christ stands there in the Temple (where he ought not)? If this is so then would this mean that the Temple which they are building would need to be made Holy? And my last question is who is the anti-Christ?

Shalom in Yahshua Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

Welcome to my blog. I pray the LORD guides me in all truth as I write my response to you. In answer to your first question. Yes, the third temple being built will be HOLY. Let's look at what Jesus says in Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) The Apostle Paul also describes “the abomination that causes desolation” when he says, “he [Antichrist] sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God."2 Thessalonians 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

I pray this has answered your questions. I would love to hear from you.

In Christ,
cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Thanks Joan for your response to my question. And yes that did answer my questions. My next question is what will be done to the Temple to make it hakodesh (set part)? And will YHWH again except animal sacrifices from off the mizbeach (altar) as was done anciently?

shalom In Messiah

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,
The third temple will be set apart. If I understand you correctly here is why. As we read in Daniel 9: 25-27 Know therefore and understand, that from going forth of the commandment to restore and to build unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall even in troublous times. (26) And after the threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end there of shall be like a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined. (27) And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and the determined to be poured upon the desolate.
There will be a peace treaty that will be broken mid week. The abomination of desolation will enter and defile the temple claiming to be GOD. Please read Matthew 24:15.
Yuri, in Ezekiel 40 The LORD speaks of the new temple arrangements. Ezekiel 43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.
Ezekiel chapter 44 we see the LORD giving instructions to those that will be making the sacrifices. 44:2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the GOD of Israel , hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.
Yuri, I pray this has answered your questions. Please pray to the Holy Spirit on what I was given.
In Christ,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Joan- thanks for your comments.

Do you think that re-instating the temple services with its' sacrifices would be an acknowledgment of the sufficiency of the blood of lambs, goats, and other blood offerings to take away sins? My next question is according to Kefa Aleph 2:9 which priesthood do you think that the children of adoption are of; the Levitical or the Melchisedec order?

Shalom In Messiah

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,
I pray to the Father to guide me in all truth.I pray the Holy Spirit inspire me to write all truth.Amen.

The third temple sacrifices will be conducted by the Jews who do NOT believe the Messiah has come. So, yes they will resume all sacrifices for the atonement of sins.

The third temple will be defiled by the Anti-Christ claiming to be the long awaited King. This is the abomination of desolation.

I believe the adopted children are under the Melchisedec order. Hebrews 7:14-17 He For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood. 7:15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest, 7:16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life. 7:17 For he testifieth, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec."

The Messiah was not under the Levitical order nor will be the adopted children.
In Christ,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Joan,

Thanks for your response.

I understand from your posts that the Jews will re-institute the sacrifices at the temple; which will be a hole temple. This i deduce from your position that it will be desecrated. In order for it to be desecrated; most be holy before. (agreed?)

If this is your position then how would you explain Matit'yah ha Levi 23:38 Where Yahshua pronounced to the religious leaders of His day....."Behold, your house is left unto you desolate."

Thanks.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

May the Holy Spirit guide me in my response to you. I pray Yahweh will bless me as I write this, In Yehsua's name.
In Matthew 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I gather her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! (38) Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.(39)For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, BLESSED IS HE THAT COMETH IN THE NAME OF THE LORD. Now looking at these scriptures above I was led to Jeremiah 12:7 I have forsaken mine house, I have left mine heritage; I have given dearly beloved of my soul into the hand of her enemies. Yuri, it is my understanding that Yeshua was speaking of Jerusalem the City. I pray this has answered your questions.

In Yeshua,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Joan,

Thanks for responding to my questions thus far.

Would you are agree with me that in order for something to be made kadosh (holy) then the process by which it is made holy most be holy? In other words; that through the anointing services ordained of Elohim (who is holy) the OT temple became kadosh;and most importantly it will be the place where He will manifest His presence.

That being the case and because Yahshua told us in Matit'yah ha Levi 23:38 that the "house" (Temple) would be left unto them desolate (erēmos; Strong's #G2048 which means uninhabited); which I take to mean void of YHWH'S presence because they rejected Yahshua Ha Mashiack; then what will it be that will bring His presence back to the temple and it's services to make it holy again?

Shalom In Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I published your comment and could not find it. If you would like to send it again, I will re-post it. As for the answer. I pray the Holy Spirit guides me as I write this.

We know from scipture that the third temple will be built. Will this third temple be approved by Yahweh? No. Will HIS presence be there? No. Not at that time.

Isaiah 28:14-18 Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. Because ye have said, We have made a “covenant with death”, and “with hell are we at agreement”; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falsehood have we hid ourselves: Therefore thus saith the Lord God, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste. Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.

The "FOURTH" temple if we may call it that is in Rev. chapter 21. Matthew 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

In Yeshua,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Cassie,

Thanks for your reply. It is good to see that you do not believe that the building of another temple in Yerusalem will not be kadosh. For how can it be; since by the very notion of it being re instituted with the concomitant ceremonial services and sacrifices for sin constitutes a plain denial of Yahshua; His life, death, and resurrection from the dead.

Having said that; I'm somewhat perplexed to know how could the temple be desecrated if; in fact, it cannot be kodosh in the first place.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I pray that the Holy Spirit guides me as I write this to you and others reading this. May the Father reveal to me all truth through the Holy Spirit.

The Jews who still claim that the Mashiach has not come will be deceived by the Anti-Christ. Who sets himself up in the temple portraying himself as God. 2 Thessalonians 2:3,4 (3)Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
(4) Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.
This is the abomination of desolation. Jesus states in Matthew 24:15 (15)When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)I pray this has helped. We both will gain much knowledge as we listen to the Holy Spirit and learn ALL truth.

In Yeshua Mashiach,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Cassie,

Thanks for your reply. I understand that your reference to 2Thess. 2:4 in which we find the phrase "....temple of God..." you understand to mean the temple at Yerusalem.

In the B'rit Chadashah (NT) we find "temple of God" used 8 times. 4 times they are used by Sha'uwl (Paul); and other than 2Thess. 2:4 (which is the Scripture in question) none of the other 3 convey the meaning of the temple at Yerusalem. Of the other 4 instances the one in Matit'yah ha Levi (Matt.26:61)is the only one which refers directly to the temple at Yerusalem. In Matit'yah Ha Levi 24:15 "...holy place..." is mentioned. From your studies do you understand this to mean the temple at Yerusalem?

Shalom In Yahshua Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I pray the Holy Spirit guides me in all truth as I write this. Father I pray in Yeshua's name please lead me to scripture and understanding on this delicate subject. In Yeshua's name I pray. Amen.

Daniel 11:31 And arms shall stand on his part, and they shall pollute the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the daily sacrifice, and they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate. This is the temple, the mountain is stands on and all of Yerusalem.

Shalom in Yeshua,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Cassie,

Thanks again for responding to my comment.

I understand how it came appear that the phrase "sanctuary of strength" as used in Dan. 11:31 can be taken to equal the Temple at Yerusalem.

Is it possible that there is another way of looking at the same verse?

The word "sanctuary" in the Hebrew is the word מִקְדָּשׁ (miqdash)[Strong's # H4720] which in one verse is translated {chapel}Amos 7:13. In that reference Amaziah the priest of Bethel; told Amos not to prophesy at Bethel (where idol worship was at that time practiced) but prophesy in Judah (where the Ark of the Covenant was and the true miqdash was.

So we have in this situation a (false sanctuary) which was not kadosh; set up as a counterfeit miqdash (sanctuary) at a DIFFERENT location from the real miqdash. This false sanctuary was NOT at Yerusalem.

In Lev. 20:1-3 we have YHWH warning the people not to sacrifice to Molech for ......it will defile His miqdash (His sanctuary) This is important; for we see that defilement (or pollution){in reference to YHWH'S miqdash} can take place even if the defiling is not done at the physical location of the sanctuary; as it is in this case; where the sacrificing to Molech was done in the valley of Hinnom.

Shalom In Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

Not by coincidence I was on line to get your comment. The Holy Spirit told me to go to Hosea chapters 4-6. Yahweh said this is the answer. Please tell me your thoughts. All praise to Yahweh. HE leads me in all things.

In Yeshua Mashiach.
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Cassie,

Thanks for your response. Would you please be more specific in what the Holy Spirit told you regarding Hosea chapters 4-6 as being the answer? I would like to know what was revealed to you.

Shalom In Messiah

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

When I was reading the word. I heard this is the answer Hosea chapters 4-6. I read these chapters. I then came into the house and you had sent me a comment. I then heard this is the answer. I don't know how else to explain it. This is what and how it was revealed.

In Yeshua Mashiach,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shabbat Shalom Cassie.

So what understanding have you derived as a result of your study of Hosea 4-6? Is your position now confirmed by the speaking of the Ruach through Hosea 4-6? If so, is your confirmation that the third temple will be made kadosh? This is the only way I see that it can bring about the fulfillment of the prophesy which speaks of it being polluted/defiled

Shalom In Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I have prayed about this. I am hearing from the speaking of the Ruach the same thing. That the answer is within those chapters. My understanding is that it would have to become holy. However, I did not understand it to be that way before. I still need much prayer. What is your understanding on those chapters? What are you hearing?

Shalom In Mashiach,
Cassie

Yuri Richardson said...

Shalom Cassie.

How are you coming along with the verses about Shabbat?

In your post of July 14th & July 21,'10 you stated that the temple will be holy.

In your post of July 21, (2:43PM EDT) you stated.."The third temple sacrifices will be conducted by the Jews who do NOT believe the Messiah has come. So, yes they will resume all sacrifices for the atonement of sins."

And in your Aug. 14th post you said that ...."We know from scipture that the third temple will be built. Will this third temple be approved by Yahweh? No. Will HIS presence be there? No. Not at that time."

In your post today you said...."My understanding is that it would have to become holy. However, I did not understand it to be that way before. I still need much prayer. "

If the temple is to be made holy and; If the temple will not be approved of YHWH then how will it be made holy?

I really think that this is an important topic and I appreciate you sharing Hosea 4-6 which; (YAH desires), I will comment on soon.

Shalom In Messiah

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I prayed to Yahweh about this all night. I keep hearing that "this is the answer" I also understand that Yahweh is not present in Jerusalem. Their sins have reached him. The temple will not be holy. The Holy Spirit revealed to me this last night.Hosea 5:6 They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them. Hosea 6:6,7 (6) For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.(7) But they like men have transgressed the covenant: there have they dealt treacherously against me.
The temple will not be holy. Jeruslaem is not holy for Yahweh has left them. It is foolishness unto the LORD to make holiness by ceremomial traditions. Yahweh states what HE wants in Hosea 6:6.Jeremiah 7:22,23 For I spake not unto your fathers, or commanded them in the day I brought them out of the land of Egypt,concerning burnt offerings or sacrifices.(23) But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you. What the Holy Spirit revealed to me here is that observances in the OT are not pleasing to Yahweh. But living a life in obedience to Yahweh is. This is what he has commanded. Isaiah 66:3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.
Yahweh's desire is to dwell within man and woman. Not in temples made with hands. There is no need for a temple as the Jewish people think. Revelation 21:22 22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it. We are the temple of the living Yahweh. Yahweh does not exist in temples made with hands of man. Thank you Yahweh for guiding me with the Holy Spirit while writing this.
Shalom In Yeshua Mashiach.

Yuri Richardson said...

Cassie,

It is so very important that we study for ourselves. That we look at all of Scriptures on a certain point before we come to any conclusion. That is how I try to study the Word. Especially since we "...see through a glass darkly..." If for example our heart is not right before Elohim; for one reason or another, we are in more danger at that time to be led astray. The doing of YHWH'S will (in our every day life) is so crucial to our understanding of spiritual things. This is why Yahshua said "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or [whether] I speak of myself." (Yochanan 7:17) Jn. You've made several really good points on your commentary on Hosea 4-6.

What is your position on Shabbat?

Shalom in Messiah.

Joan The Baptist said...

Shalom Yuri,

I agree with you. I am still learning. But I listen to Yahweh as he instructs me. "‘For as the new heavens and the new earth which I will make shall remain before Me,’ says the Lord, ‘So shall your descendants and your name remain. And it shall come to pass that from one New Moon [month] to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me,’ says the Lord" (Isaiah 66:22–23).

Shalom In Yehsua,
Cassie
