    Are you wanting to ask honest questions or are you just wanting to prove someone wrong?

    I wish I could control your perceptions but I can't. Can you?

    I asked a civil and reasonable question. I have no idea what that means in this context.

    IMHO, the two questions should have been asked in the OP

    I am wanting (sic) to ask honest questions
    I expect honest answers and an honest debate.

    Usually it is done like the op as a means of controlling the conversation and cornering people. It is a debate tactic and shows there is not really a desire for a conversation only to win a debate.

    Ezekiel's temple.
    1. Will the megastructure be rebuilt?
    2. What purpose does it serve post-cross?

    I gave up on Dispensationalism because I have never found any convincing reason why we should revert to Moses long after Christ redeemed us from under the Law.

    If you think dispensationalism forces a Christian to revert to the Mosaic Law then you need to go brush up on dispensationalism.

    Dispensationalism 'literalism' is tested when the same is applied to Ezekiel's temple. And this is why I settled on this particular point. Could you be kind enough to share with us on;
    1. Whether the grand Ezekiel's temple complete with Levitical sacrificial system is coming
    2. The purpose this serves in the light of the once for all sacrifice of Jesus Christ

    The temple will be rebuilt, not because the sacrificial system will be restored by God but because Jews have not recognized the Messiah as of yet. There is no actual need for the temple to be rebuilt but it will be anyway. Dispensationalists see this not as necessary except it is the fulfillment of scripture and advances the return of Christ.

    1.How does temple worship advance the return of Christ?
    2. When do you suppose the temple worship will be restored, shortly before Christ return?
    3. Do you know the dimensions of Ezekiel's temple? If yes, could you please share them in miles?

    It doesn't. But then you asked the wrong question. A better question would be:

    How does temple worship communicate to people that the return of Christ is nearer than before?

    The answer is that this fulfillment is much closer to the return of Christ. It is another prophecy fulfilled.

    During the tribulation period.


    Why?

    Ezekiel 40 - 42 has enough dimensions to keep you and a calculator busy for a few hours.

    But you just said it does. Look up your last post

    You are saying reverting to shadows is of the same prophetic value as tectonic plates dancing?

    Am just curious. Some of you are not sure whether it will be during the millennium or not.

    Anyway,will how do Jews during the so called tribulation get salvation,turning to Levi or Melchizedek? And is this the same for Gentiles?

    Has it ever kept you and your calculator busy? If yes, please share your findings.

    Thank you

    Ok let me rephrase it. It shows that the time Christ will return is closer.


    I have no idea what this means


    Well you cannot lump everyone in the same basket. I answered your question and if you are going to respond to me then you need to set aside everyone else. I do not care what others say.

    I will explain this only one more time. The temple gets set up by the Jews not God. It shows their rejection of Christ as the Messiah but it does not mean God has reverted back to the old covenant.
