    Dear Jimmy; Jesus Himself said, "Do not suppose that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I came not to abolish, but to completely make full." (literal translation). Also, isn't it the entire purpose of one's repentance and conversion to henceforth live a good and holy life of meekness and piety and bring forth good fruit to God? God has commanded that we should be holy as He is holy!
  • Jimmy a disciple of jesus on Colossians 2
    this chapter is explaining Christ removed the Law and how we are to just trust in him and not in any rituals or doctrines of man..the goal of a christian life isnt trying to live holy but to total trust in Jesus..look at 2:6..as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord so walk ye in him..so think.. how you received him..did you come with holiness or goodness? of course not..u believed on Jesus.
  • BSP on Colossians 2
    Verse 8: There are many different philosophies of this world and they are constantly striving to push imperfect human thinking to the forefront. We have to keep making sure of what is acceptable to God.
  • Charley on 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.

    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 on Colossians 2
    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 on Colossians 2
    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 on Colossians 2
    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 on Colossians 2
    (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!
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel; the "Satanic doctrine" of transubstantiation is out of the same filth pot of garbage from Babylon, and held on to by the Romish church, and is NOTHING related to the sacrifices under the first covenant. The Jews are dreaming of rebuilding the Temple and resuming the Services; but as they will not receive any Prophet or Apostle or even the Lord Jesus Himself; it will be only for disaster!
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel; the veil of the Temple rent in two signified that the way to the holiest was now opened to all through Jesus. The Scriptures saying that the priesthood and the Law would be forever was not rent in two, but a fabric curtain of a figure. When the Lord comes and sets up His everlasting kingdom; then we will all see and know everything. The Lord bless you Brother!
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    To A disciple: I appreciate your comments, and I can see your passion for the Word of God. How I wish more people would study to know Him, the only true God Jn. 17:3. Back to Temple sacrifices: When Jesus died the veil was rent ( Matt. 27:51) and the Shekinah glory was gone; indicating the end of the Aaronic priesthood. Ap. Paul explains that in Romans, Galatians, Colossians and Hebrews.
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    (Cont’d) In Heb. 7:27 he says: He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself; and 9:28 Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many. Erroneous understanding of this led to belief in Transubstantiation and the desire of many to rebuild the Temple; in a sense rejecting Christ and His sacrifice, as being insufficient.
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel (cont.) As far as learning to use the Hebrew and Greek Lexicons, I find it VERY enjoyable, and a HUGE benefit in that it really helps me understand the clear meaning in the text as it was given to the Prophets and Apostles to write; AS GOD MEANT THEM TO BE UNDERSTOOD! Also having access to a few good Dictionaries! As Christ's Redeemed and as His servants it is our honor and duty to study!
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Hi Daniel; Back to our discussion.. I understand perfectly and know the Truth that our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the Complete and Perfect Meaning signified by the animal sacrifices. But the Apostles and Hebrew Saints still observed them till the Temple was destroyed and the Services abandoned. In its Divinely appointed role it is no competition for where we put our faith for salvation.
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    Steve: Interesting addition Rom 12:1. Presenting our body as a living sacrifice also involves death: the death of the old man Rom 6:6. But even this type of sacrifice will cease at the time of Christ’s second coming, when we will receive new immortal bodies 1Cor 15:51-53. Our body, is the temple of the Holy Spirit: we need to take care of it; by not eating or drinking unhealthy and unclean foods.
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    To A disciple, sorry to state the obvious: Can you try sending part 1 again?
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel (continuing..) Lets look at what we know about the 1000 Years: The wicked will have been removed, and the devil locked up and sealed in the pit of the abyss; the government shall be given to the Saints under Jesus the King of all the earth; the Law of God will be the Law of all Nations, enforced by an iron rod; those born during the 1000 Years will only know a world ruled in righteousness.
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    To A disciple: V. good point. I believe we need to reconsider our definition/interpretation of words like, FOREVER, ETERNITY, EVERLASTING, etc. Four things define a word: What God meant by it, how the writer understood it and expressed it, how it was translated after thousands of years, and what is the meaning for us today. They should all match; unfortunately, sometimes they don’t. (see cont'n)
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    (Continued) Every time I look at the Hebrew language, I shiver: almost every word has 5-15 different meanings. You are right: the plan of salvation was made before the foundation of the world 1Pet. 1:19, 20. Look at it this way: a sacrifice involves death. Christ came to solve the problem of sin and death, not to prolong it “forever”. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 1Co 15:26
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel; Yes, by the way you look at it, absolutely! But why does the LORD say so many times in the Law, that This Shall Be A Statute Forever Unto The Children Of Israel? Did He not know that He was going to come in the flesh and completely make it full? That doesn't seem likely! Maybe if we understand it as sacrifices were originally intended, instead of the religious icon they became...?
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    Re. Ezekiel ch. 40-48 I can’t imagine Jesus, our High Priest in heaven, interceding in our behalf with His own blood; being helped by the sons of Zadok ch.40, presenting animal blood
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel; Your Welcome! Its in the last chapters, from 40 on; where the Prophet is brought in visions to see the City, and the Angel (?) is measuring and describing everything.. Very interesting, but hard to picture exactly. Talk to you soon.
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    To A disciple: No, I was not answering your question. Rom. 2 comments were published ahead of your comment; but for some reason yours got sandwiched between. Your question is loaded; I need some time to review the book of Ezekiel before I can give an informed answer. Thanks
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel; I can't tell by your last post if you were answering me or just continuing your thoughts from before. Jesus didn't take away the Law at all by His work on the cross, but completely filled it up! After the Apostles were already going out to the Gentiles, they were still observing the Law of Moses, "knowing that a man is NOT justified by the works of the Law, but by faith in the Lord Jesus."
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    In Romans 2:12, 13 Apostle Paul, referring to the moral laws, says: For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law; For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but THE DOERS OF THE LAW SHALL BE JUSTIFIED. Comment: The 10 Commandments were never nailed to the cross, or abolished, they must be obeyed.
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Daniel (cont.); My thoughts about the things written in Ezekiel indicate another meaning, or rather ADDED meaning, to the sacrifices and priesthood. We know that Christ is the fullness and perfection of what the types were for teaching; and the sacrifice itself was in its first form a token for Remembrance. I myself don't have any issues with sacrifices as if they would take away from THE PERFECT.
  • A disciple on Colossians 2
    Hi Daniel; That is the Eternal Truth of God! Jesus Christ the Son of God loved us and gave Himself for us a perfect work to redeem us to God for ever! But about the sacrifices under the priesthood of Aaron; in Ezekiel is described a future where the LORD IS sitting King over all the earth from His Palace in Jerusalem, and the sacrifices and first priestly services continuing! Any thoughts on this?
  • Brother Daniel FC on Colossians 2
    There’s a big difference bet. the 10 Commandments and Ceremonial Laws. The sacrificial system of burnt offerings was designed to point the sinner to the ultimate sacrifice of Christ. It is the blood of Christ ONLY that can cleanse us from all unrighteousness; not the blood of animals: This is why WE don’t need to bring animal sacrifices anymore. The price for our salvation has been paid in full.
