    In my post #16 I replied with Scripture to your points & gave you links so you could check out the Scriptures.

    Yet again you post without any Scripture references. You have told you follow theology without Scripture, & you have proved that repeatedly.

    Please try to find & quote Scripture which actual says what you are asserting.

    I did, as Jesus asserted that Israel would have that time of restoration promised them IF they chosen to accept Jesus as King, as that would have ushered in the Messianic Age!

    That is an interesting thought but I think a better one is this... Pay particular attention to verse 41... Brother Glen:)

    John 1:35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples;

    1:36 And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!

    1:37 And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

    1:38 Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou?

    1:39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

    1:40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother.

    1:41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

    1:42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

    1:43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

    1:44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

    1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

    1:46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

    1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

    1:48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

    1:49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

    1:50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

    1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

    Brother Glen,
    Why do you think Y's post was an "interesting thought?" Do you know of any supporting Scriptures?

    What is your "better thought?"

    I think a "better thought" was Jesus' reply to the thoughts of the Emmaus couple:

    Luke 24:18 Then the one whose name was Cleopas answered and said to Him, “Are You the only stranger in Jerusalem, and have You not known the things which happened there in these days?”
    19 And He said to them, “What things?”
    So they said to Him, “The things concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a Prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20 and how the chief priests and our rulers delivered Him to be condemned to death, and crucified Him. 21 But we were hoping that it was He who was going to redeem Israel.
    ......
    25 Then He said to them, “O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! 26 Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things and to enter into His glory?” 27 And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.

    That thought of there being an earthly Kingdom set up, a Messianic Age, runs all the way thru the OT prophets!

    And then Jesus Christ came & lived, died & rose according to OT prophecy, & the Messianic age began.

    You are carnal in your "thoughts." You never find a quote from Jesus or his Apostles to justify your thoughts.

    John was awaiting the time of the Second Coming event, as was paul, as that would usher unto the earth the kingdom as described by Isaiah, when no more wars, no diseases, and all worshiped God and his messiah!

    When did all of that in History then?

    Read Isaiah 61:1-2 then Luke 4:14-21
    Jesus said,
    "Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing."

    You obviously agree with the mob that tried to throw Jesus off the cliff.

    I followed your line of thought with v 41.

    1:41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

    ...which jibes with:

    5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
    6 But if it is by grace, it is no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace.
    7 What then? that which Israel seeketh for, that he obtained not; but the election obtained it, and the rest were hardened: Ro 11

    This 'remnant' IS the 'Israel that is of Israel'. Those that were hardened were NOT 'Israel'.

    The new covenant IS the 'restoration of all things'.

    Jesus quoted all part of the prophecy of isaiah though, as the remainder still awaits His second coming!

    When was the day of vengeance? See Luke 21:22

    Read the Sermon on the mount to read of Jesus assurance of blessings in accord with prophecy.

    You seem to think OT prophecy has to be specifically quoted in the New Covenant Scripture to have its fulfilment by the Lord Jesus Christ in the present Gospel age.

    Instead you should understand that the way the Prophets are quoted by Jesus and the Apostles establishes the principles for us to understand OT prophecy.

    The Sermon on the Mount was not for how we are to live now though, but as showing to us what being holy and righteousness per God really meant.
    And much of the NT would still be applying to the future Second Coming event itself!

    You know there are two books I refer to quite frequently... The number one is my King James Bible but another that I go to is Josephus War Of The Jews... They work hand in hand... If you check history this came to pass... Brother Glen:)

    Luke 21:20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.

    21:21 Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

    21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

    The truth is that Jesus was describing in the passages BOTH event in their time, and still yet to happen!

    So you are saying (and I am being kind here)... That Jesus lied?

    that all things which are written may be fulfilled.

    That's not how I see and understand the passage... Also Jesus final dying words on the cross... "IT IS FINISHED"!... What was finished?... What was fulfilled?... What was destroyed?... Something's passed away and something's remained... What were they?... Brother Glen:)

    OP: Spiritual understanding.

    I have a couple of questions.

    Genesis 2:1-3 KJV Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
    Exodus 20:8-11 KJV Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
    Leviticus 23:1-4 KJV And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, Concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are my feasts. Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the sabbath of rest, an holy convocation; ye shall do no work therein: it is the sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

    1. Was and is the Sabbath essentially prophetic? Have we seen the ultimate fulfillment of the Sabbath?

    Leviticus 23:4 KJV These are the feasts of the LORD, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

    Verse 5 KJV In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S Passover.

    2. Was the fourteenth day of the first month, the Lord's Passover prophetic of something?
    3. Was the fourteenth day of the first month a day of holy convocation, that is, an holy convocation, day?
    4. When was the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's Passover?

    Leviticus 23: 6-44 KJV or any other, Please read for yourselves.

    5. Does Leviticus 23:6-44 list seven days, that are a day of holy convocation, a day on which no work is to be done, that follower the day of ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's Passover?
    6. Did the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's Passover end or begin the salvation of the Lord for men?
    7. Such as; Could the sins of sinful men be washed away, forgiven, until the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's Passover?
    8. Could sinful men be considered, in the eyes of the Lord, without sin, clean, unleavened, until after the ultimate fulfillment of the of the Lord's Passover?
    9. Did the first day, of holy convocation, one of seven days of holy convocation have to follow the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord;s Passover?
    10. Was it possible for the Holy Spirit to be given, before the ultimate fulfillment of the Lord's Passover? John 7:39
    11. Did the Holy Spirit come on a day of holy convocation?
    12. Were and are the feast of the Lord, days of holy convocation, prophetic?
    13. Have all the days of holy convocation been fulfilled or there some that are shadows of the reality, to come?
    14. What kicked off the beginning of the salvation of the Lord?

    BTW IMHO the faith of God (the Father) in the obedient death of the Son of God, resulted in the salvation of the Lord through the resurrection of the Son of God by God the Father. Ref. Phil 2:8-9. Heb 5:7-9 Titus 2:11 Gal 1:1 1 Cor 15:16-18
