    To Karl;

    When you say the title, Christ, you are saying, from the Greek word 'Christos', The Anointed One.
    When you say the title, Messiah, you are saying, from the Hebrew word 'Mashiyach', The Anointed One.

    When you say Christ, you Are saying Messiah. You Are saying Jesus, Yahshua, The Anointed One.

    The Lord Jesus Christ is the Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed One, the Son of God.

    David/Jacob - could not "David" refer symbolically to a more reverential and obedient people and "Jacob" the rebellious and disobedient people that went into captivity.
    Will Jesus Christ walk again on earth? the bible says yes, but Christ Jesus, not Jesus the messiah? How's that sound?
  • Jean
    What do you think about David my servant shall be Prince over us? Do you think Christ will walk on Earth again , or shall not be David my servant will rise and reign again?
  • STEPHEN for verse 15
    Ezekiel portrayed the fact that God communicates with mortal man. How this happens varies with individuals and circumstances.

    Let me give you some revelation: There are 10,396 verses of prophecy in the Bible, everyone of them depends on Israel being a nation and Jerusalem being the capital, and the Jews being back in their land. There are 613 laws in which you know only ten. 262 of them depend on Israel rebuilding the temple. But that s the law. 27 of the Bible is bible prophesy. Every time the first coming is mention the second coming is mentioned 7 times. If you can take Israel and wipe them out, if you can take Jerusalem and divide it like President Obama wants to do, if you can take the Jewish people and push them into the Red Sea, then you have made God a liar and the Word of God a lie. Why do you think Israel is under attack by so many nations of the world? She has no Gold, she has no silver, she has no brass, she has no Iron, she has no oil, she is not on a major trade route or a sea route. She has no natural resource. Yet she is the most covenant piece of property of the world. You see the enemy wants Jerusalem, because if he can take Jerusalem the Bible is a lie, but I got news for him, let God be true and every man a liar

    the church of God is dead like the dry bones due to the fact that the gospel commission is neither in progress nor alive. The church God shall revive when He will pour out his Holy Spirit represented by the wind just as the disciple received His God Spirit
