No, I am not offended, because I don't have to participate in animal sacrifices as a Christian. These Jews don't believe Jesus is the promised Messiah like I do.
You should be offended by it, because it's the Devil basically saying; ''it's as if Jesus of Nazereth never existed''. But the Jewish Temple won't be rebuilt.
No, I don't believe in his ministry. I simply point to it as another source for building the Third temple in Jerusalem, which I believe will happen because of biblical prophecy.
Ah, your timeline for catching the Rapture bus...
If offends me that you describe me as one who rejects Christ Jesus and worships Jewish people instead. That is a lie.
I didn't describe you as one, I described people like that entire congregation of Baptists who talked just like you do, started flying Israeli flags in their church, celebrated Jewish festivals, etc... And next thing I know, the whole congregation rejected Jesus as the Messiah and became ''Noahides''.
That's what I'm talking about. If you don't want to go down that road, you may want to reexamine some of your original premises.
I have already stated before that I am not a Dispensationalist, but I do consider the Islamic extremist as enemies of both Christians and Jews.
You say you're not a ''Dispensationalist'' and yet affirm that you are not offended by Jewish animal sacrifices. That must mean logically anyway, that you do follow some kind of ''dual covenent'' theology in your thinking.
I have never said that and you don't even know my friends, so that is another lie.
People you talk like and identify with can be considered ''friends'' of a sort, and I describe the results with some of following the similar sort of BS being peddled.
Why should we Christians be concerned about that since the Antichrist will take over it anyway?
You have no concern for Jewish and other non-Christian souls, for their falling deeper into error?
ANTICHRIST IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD
Paul gives another description of Antichrist: “Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or an object of worship, so that he seats himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself that he is God.” This fulfills the prophecy concerning Antichrist in Daniel 11:36 and 37. Therefore, the temple must be rebuilt.
Wrong, it says nothing in Scripture about a rebuilt Jewish Temple, the term refers to the Temple of God in the New Covenant, the Church.
The nation of Israel has been formed again, and the city of Jerusalem has been returned to Israel. However, the temple has not yet been built. Some Jews are deeply stirred concerning the rebuilding of the temple. One day, this temple will be rebuilt, and, according to the prophecy of Daniel, Antichrist will seat himself in it.
Wrong, again, not a Jewish Temple.
The apostle Paul speaks to the Thessalonians concerning the coming of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus:
Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.
(2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 NKJV)
Exactly. But nowhere in this ''Temple'' is there any indication of Old Testament type Jewish ritual going on within it, or that it is a Jewish Temple.
Then the king shall do according to his own will: he shall exalt and magnify himself above every god, shall speak blasphemies against the God of gods, and shall prosper till the wrath has been accomplished; for what has been determined shall be done. He shall regard neither the God of his fathers nor the desire of women, nor regard any god; for he shall exalt himself above them all.
(Daniel 11:36- 37 NKJV)
Yes, that's what he has done, and will do.
But man is a fickle and disreputable creature and perhaps, like a chess-player, is interested in the process of attaining his goal rather than the goal itself.
