    I note from the article referenced in the OP of this topic: The general idea in this article would suggest that Romans 12:1 regarding presenting our bdies as a :living Sacrifice" would preclude any ideas about "being attached to assumptions." When I commented on Rom 12:1 there was NO "assumption" at all, because I didn't comment on it in any sort of whole-picture context for that verse. By saying that the OT Temple "sacrifices" were and are different than the text from Romans has no such thing as an assumption in it. I simply stated what the Bible does. They ARE two different things. Your attempts at eisegetic philosophies are a complete distortion of scripture. Do you, yourself even do half of aall those "sacrifices" from the OT Temple? If not, why tell others they should? Its not making sense at all, to me. While I can appreciate your stated desire to not "disregard" anything in God's Word, it does not follow that that means we have to do everything He said back then. Your quote from Acts 23:11 is totally out of context. It doesnt even belong in this topic. The context of those OT sacrifices is plainly declared: For every high priest is appointed to offer both gifts and sacrifices. Therefore it is necessary that this One also have something to offer. For if He were on earth, He would not be a priest, since there are priests who offer the gifts according to the law; who serve the copy and shadow of the heavenly things, as Moses was divinely instructed when he was about to make the tabernacle. For He said, "SEE THAT YOU MAKE ALL THINGS ACCORDING TO THE PATTERN SHOWN YOU ON THE MOUNTAIN." But now He has obtained a more excellent ministry, inasmuch as He is also Mediator of a better covenant, which was established on better promises. (Heb 8:3-6) The OP article was intended as a specific reply to a specific point, and not intended as an all-inclusive statement. That "more excellent ministry" means just what it says. Its in the Bible, it's NOT my opinion. The OT ministry and covenant are not needed now because of the "better covenant" of scripture.

    October 13, 2019 Walking in the Spirit “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” (Romans 8:1) This promise in our text is followed in a later Pauline epistle by two nuanced commands in the letter to the church at Galatia. “This I say then,” Paul says, “Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh” (Galatians 5:16). Then again, “if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25). Although they appear to be the same command in English, there is a significant distinction in the original Greek language in which Paul penned the letters. Both the Romans 8:1 and the Galatians 5:16 passages use the word perepeto, which carries the connotation to “walk around” and to “be at liberty.” The second iteration in Galatians 5:25 uses stoicheo, which means to “step precisely,” to “march,” or to “go in procession.” Same command but different emphasis. The context of Galatians 5 stresses the difference between a lifestyle of fleshly behavior and a life controlled by the Holy Spirit. The “fruits” of the flesh and the “fruit” of the Spirit are diametrically opposed. They cannot exist together; they are not harmonious (Romans 8:5-8). We either “mind” the things of the flesh or the “things of the Spirit” (Romans 8:5). The Christian walk has great liberty (Romans 8:21), but that liberty must “step precisely” in honesty (Romans 13:13), good works (Ephesians 2:10), and in truth (2 John 4-6). Our walk is expected to be by faith and not by sight (2 Corinthians 5:7), and we are to conduct a spiritual warfare in the Holy Spirit’s power (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) protected by the full armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18).

    A man of Aaronic descent, who had been consecrated as a priest, might not be convinced. By far the great majority of Jews were not convinced either. Doesn't make it untrue. If Paul was not "under the law" - under the "curse" - under the law of sin and death, then there was no need for him to offer a sacrifice. He did so in an attempt to win "those under the law" - who had not "seen" that Christ was enough - forever. The LORD warned Paul three times that he would end up in chains if he went back to Jerusalem. Paul went anyway. His trip to offer sacrifice was ACTING - trying to find access to Jerusalem Jews. But he "struck the Rock twice", and the LORD allowed him to pay dearly. The LORD commended Paul for his witness to Jews, for Messiah - NOT for offering unnecessary sacrifices. Just as He could have commended Moses for his work, but not for striking the Rock twice.

    Sacrifices "forever". That would mean animal blood sacrifices will continue in the Kingdom of Messiah, and on into the New Earth, and on into eternity. I cannot believe the LORD wants His priests to continue killing animals "forever". The "last enemy" to be destroyed is "death". If there is "no more death", there can be no death of animals either. If there is ANY POINT where the system of animal sacrifices comes to an END, then the prophecy of "forever" was a "false promise" to the Levites ?? I don't agree. The word translated as "forever" did not always mean "for eternity". As for "throughout your generations". This could refer to "generations" of priests, rather than generations of Aaronic descendants. If no man of Aaronic DNA can be "consecrated" as a priest (maybe because some element of that consecration is missing), then the "generations" of priests has come to an end. Just another way to understand the LORD's prophecy. The priesthood was "changed". If the nature of the sacrifices was also "changed" - from prophetic sacrifices, to THE REAL "forever" sacrifice, then it makes sense that Christ will continue "forever" and His "sacrifice" will be celebrated "forever".

  15. I agree that if one's motivation for imaging Christ should not be to be the greatest in the Kingdom. But if we are true imagers of Christ, we will be servants - now and in the Kingdom. Look at the parable of the three servants in Matthew 25:14-30. The servants who did something profitable with the resources provided by the Master were rewarded with increased authority and responsibility. "His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord." (Matt. 25:21 and 23). While the Master was away (i.e., when Jesus was back in heaven), the faithful servants took what God gave them to fulfill the destiny God had for them. When the master returned (i.e., at the second coming), he rewarded the servants who had faithfully utilized the given resources to further the estate/kingdom of the Master. To the servant who hid his resources (did not use them for the furtherance of the Kingdom) had his talent taken away from him. I don't think the outer darkness means they perished. If they perished, they would not weeping and gnashing their teeth. In all three instances where the term outer darkness is used, the ones cast there are still children of the Kingdom who acknowledge their Master. However, they are excluded from intimacy with their Master until they complete their "training". This may involve some kind of discipline (not to be confused with punishment - God does not punish His children). A big part of the basis of our disagreement here is that you believe the 7th millennium will be in heaven because the entire earth is uninhabitable. I believe the millennium will be here on earth because there will be a remnant of the nations left here on earth whom the saints will be ruling with an iron rod (discipling). It is difficult for me to separate the events of the 7th Millennium and the 8th Millennium.

    It depends on how you are determining what "is needed", and for what purpose it might be "needed". Did Jesus "need" to be baptized? John the baptist was called by God and was arguably the foremost authority on baptism at that time. When Jesus arrived to be baptized by John, John tried to prevent it. (Matt. 3:14) Apparently human assumptions about what is "needed" are not reliable. If we just go by what is recorded in Scripture regarding animal sacrifices, we have several very clear commands from God himself instructing the Levitical priests to offer the animal sacrifices "forever" and "throughout your generations". That is many magnitudes higher than what you have asserted doesn't exist -- something "to suggest" that animal sacrifices should be offered after the sacrifice of Messiah. No Bible passage has been presented on this forum that would even begin to convince a Levitical priest to stop obeying God's clear instructions to offer animal sacrifices throughout the time period that God himself specified for animal sacrifices. If there were a Scriptural case for no longer offering animal sacrifices, that case would be much more convincing if people acknowledged what is plainly written in Scripture regarding the instructions that God gave about animal sacrifices, and if they also acknowledged that near the end of Paul's public ministry, the author of most of the key Bible texts that supposedly teach against the continuation of animal sacrifices went up to the Temple intending to offer animal sacrifices many years after the resurrection of Jesus. The lack of such acknowledgement might indicate that such people are in denial regarding Scripture rather than wanting to understand the Scriptures. If there was no "need" for animal sacrifices, why did Paul start a vow in Acts 18 that later required an animal sacrifice at the Temple?

    This is what we've all been taught. However, this is based on assumptions that are not actually taught in Scripture. We've become so attached to our assumptions that some people criticize the apostle Paul himself for going up to the Temple to offer animal sacrifices in Acts 21. On what basis could Paul be condemned -- for following what was written in the Scriptures? Wouldn't the author of Romans 12 (and the other passages that people misinterpret) understand the intent of his own writings better than someone who is separated from the original context by almost 2000 years? The Lord apparently approved of Paul going to the Temple to offer animal sacrifices because the Lord commended him less than 48 hours later for what Paul had done in Jerusalem. “Take courage; for as you have solemnly witnessed to My cause at Jerusalem, so you must witness at Rome also.” (Acts 23:11) I believe your interpretation of Romans 12:1 would apply to people who are living outside the land of Israel, including the people Paul was writing to in Rome, but would not apply to people living within the land of Israel while there was a functioning Temple and priesthood in Jerusalem.
