    Evidently, the Prince of life does not think them sufficient.
    There will no more communion as we know it today once the Lord returns for we do it partly to shew the Lord's death till he come (1Co.11:26).

    Ships that sank in the ocean were probably solid in some areas but in others not so much.

    Why do we not rather focus our attention on infallible Scripture? Especially knowing, as Paul forewarned the Ephesians, there would be a marked spiritual downgrade in just a short while. The earliest of the post-Parousia Church Fathers demonstrate this downgrade.

    Then we kill animals and fling their blood again, because that's a better memorial?

    A) Our job is to believe the scriptures, even we don't understand them
    B) We, the church, won't be partaking of any of that. It's the nations of the millennial kingdom that will be doing that.
    We are a different body.

    Except when the Scriptures state that as long as the earthly temple stands, then Christ has not accomplished the work of Redemption.

    Look, I'm not just going to ignore a prophet of God that writes 8 exceedingly detailed chapters about a millennial temple and sacrifices, et al, + Paul's statement in Colossians about yet-to-come Jewish ordinances.
    Now it's up to me to figure out how that fits, but not to spiritualize it into oblivion; see signature #1.
    God has a way of throwing us all for a loop once we think we know it all.

    There are NO post-parousia church fathers cuz the parousia hasn't yet occurred.

    Why would John tell us to look forward to the second coming as our blessed hope if had already happened?

    Why would Isaiah tell us a Virgin shall conceive if it already happened?
    Same kind of question.
    Same answer.

    In Isaiah's time, that event didn't happen, but in OUR time, it already has happened.
    But in OUR time, the Parousia hasn't yet happened, and it won't, til after the antichrist & his sidekick the false prophet comes, & the great trib occurs.

    You miss the point. I was showing Y1 that just because a verse has a future tense does not mean it is future for us.

    It is if it's not yet been fulfilled.
