Discussion for Colossians 2

    amen brother Daniel someone has discernment against the harlot churches
    rome orthodoxy and many so called evangelical are intrigued by the eucharist
    apostasy abounds everyone one is hush hush about false religious rituals
    john14-6 jesus is the way the truth and the life acts 4-12 salvation is found
    in no other name but jesus Christ and him alone.the philosophy of man
    sends souls to hell.
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To A disciple: I agree, it’s not the ideal way to communicate; what kills me is the limited space. I want to thank you for engaging in this discussion; it’s been a pleasure! It was not about winning an argument, but all about studying God’s word, and expressing ourselves freely. Thanks to you I had to read Ezekiel again, almost in its entirety. It was a good exercise... God bless you and keep you!
  • A disciple
    Daniel; I would like to finish up on this for now. The way I understand it the institution of offering a sacrifice was in its first meaning and so too in all its meaning under the First Testament; simply for bringing to remembrance, and for a token to symbolize the Anointed to come; and NEVER was it meant to be the actual intermediary as if to replace the True. So then it was a sign to teaching.
  • A disciple
    Daniel; You know it really is a "less than" experience, trying to fellowship and talk about the things of the Lord, over the computer! I remember when I was in High School, and this Computer stuff was just getting started; and they were saying how it would be in the future: No one listened to me, when I said, This is a big mistake! But I guess we'll have to make do till they take that away too!
  • Brother Daniel FC
    To A disciple: Excellent point; you say, “the way to the holiest was now opened to all through Jesus” our High Priest. Which means we do not need another intermediary or another sacrifice: The Ultimate Sacrifice has been offered. Jesus is our Intermediary to God. Now, if all sacrifices will cease (only) when Jesus comes and takes us home, how “FOREVER” are they? Death will eventually be destroyed.
  • Brother Daniel FC
    (Cont’d) Do you think that 2-3,000 years extra qualify them as “forever”? Here are more examples of not quite forever “forevers”: Ex 21:6, Lev 25:46, 1Sa 1:22, 1Sa 13:13, 1Ki 12:7, 1Ch 28:9, Jer 17:4, and others. I agree with you: it is a terrible thing to reject Jesus. We need to preach The Good News more faithfully and pray more fervently for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. God bless you too!
