Regarding the question about what did Christ do on earth during the time between his Resurrection and Pentecost. I’m surprised that you didn’t mention that there are 50 days between the Jewish Feast of the First-fruits, and the Feast of Pentecost. Jesus was on earth for 40 days after His resurrection. 10 days after His Ascension was Pentecost. This was the fulfillment of those feasts.
Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus died on a vertical stake instead of a cross, because the original Greek word for the execution device translates in English to a stake. Do you know what the original Greek word is for the execution device that Jesus died on, and what it really translates to in English?
You have said in the past that Ezekiel’s prophecies are chronological. I agree with your view. However, Ezekiel 37: 26-27 (KJV) talks about the Lord making an everlasting covenant of peace with Israel with the Lord’s sanctuary and tabernacle in the midst of them. Some scholars have suggested that this prophecy will see fulfillment during the millennium or at the second coming at the earliest. I guess I am having trouble placing the events of this passage of scripture prior to the Gog and Magog war where Israel is hardly in peace.
Do we hear the angels sing? The reason I ask is that for sometime now I have heard singing, (very soft) in my house. My TV is off and my music is off. When I have heard this, I have looked to see if I had left the radio on and have checked my cell phone too! I never thought anything of it until my friend of many years asked me if I hear “singing” in my house. He told me he has heard this quiet & soft singing in his house. I would appreciate your thoughts on this.
