For about 1400 years we’ve celebrated the Lord’s birth on Dec. 25. Are we wrong?Read More
Although I notice how often numbers are used in the bible, I can’t say I really understand the significance of them – so have some more work to do to grasp their meaning and what they are communicating.
In a reading of Mark 6:30-44, 8:1-21, it looks like Christ is using the number 12 to designate Israel in the feeding of the 5000 and the number 7 to designate Gentiles in the feeding of the 4000. Can you elaborate a bit on why there are 12 baskets left over for the Jews and why there are 7 baskets left over for the Gentiles? Do the numbers 5000 and 4000 have any significance in understanding this scripture? Do they 5 loaves and 2 fishes versus 7 loaves have significance as well?
Today I heard the argument that Jesus will fulfill all of the fall feasts in the same year just like he fulfilled the spring feasts the first time. Do we have any evidence that trumpets will be separated from Yom Kippur by 7 years? Man, I do not want to be here through the Great Day of the Lord. I’m praying he will settle my heart with this. I really feel there is much more evidence for pre trib but this bothers me.
I appreciate your site so much. I have a friend who keeps telling me Christians are going to go through The Great Tribulation, because it is the “cleansing fire” we must go through to “purify” for our redemption when Christ comes back. I have been a Pre-Trib Rapture believer since my conversion many years ago. Can you help me here? Thank you so very much.
