2 Thessalonians 2:2-6?

Recommended Posts




I note that you do not comment on Acts 3 all the prophets ... these days.

There's nothing there about Christ confirming the covenant. Do you even know what covenant was being spoken about in Daniel 9. Maybe you ought to read the whole chapter in context. The "covenant" is the law of Moses. (Dan. 9:4,13).


Dan 9:4 And I prayed unto the LORD my God, and made my confession, and said, O Lord, the great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love him, and to them that keep his commandments

Who keeps the covenant? Not man. We can only come in repentance for breaking the requirement of OBedience. BUT we come in Christ who kept the last word of the covenant to perfection, so he brought in a New Covenant in his blood - a covenant we remember at the Lord's table.

That saving covenant was remembered by the first Christians. (Acts 2) Jesus was therefore confirming the covenant relationship with his people.

Luk 1:69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
....
72 To perform the mercy [promised] to our fathers, and to remember his holy covenant;
73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham,


Where is there a hint of a 2,000 year gap in Isaiah 9:6 between the first colon? There was no hint of a gap there but you can bet your bottom dollar it's there.

Serious questions are not gambling matters.

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
7 Of the increase of [his] government and peace [there shall be] no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

Are you suggesting that the Lord Jesus is NOT our governor? That he is NOT on the throne of David?

Act 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ,

That is exactly what is being said. Christ is not currently on the throne of David he is seated at the right hand of the father. He will not be seated on the throne of David till the millennial reign.

Psalm 110:1 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool."

That is describing Christ now, pre-earthly reign.


"John 18:36 Jesus answered, My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence."

Acts 1:6-7 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.


Christ will one day have a earthly kingdom as we see in a number of places in scripture(The parable in Luke 19:12-27, Daniel chapter two where the stone made without hands smote the image, consumed it and filled the whole earth etc.). We see even in the book of acts the disciples asking Christ now that he had risen from the dead if he was then going to set up his earthly kingdom in Israel. Far from rebuking them and telling them that there would be no such earthly kingdom he confirmed that there would be one by simply telling them that it wasn't for them to know the "times or the seasons". In other words, God chooses to keep the "when" of his earthly kingdom a secret, but that does not make its coming any less sure.

Building a doctrine on the silence of scripture is a very dangerous doctrine.

"Those days" prophesied by "all the prophets" haven't come yet. Unless of course you spiritualize every promise in the OT, steal them from Israel and give them to the church like the Papcy has for the last 1,500 years. Then I guess those days would have come.

I don't think Peter could have been clearer:
....
Act 3:22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me; him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you.
23 And it shall come to pass, [that] every soul, which will not hear that prophet, shall be destroyed from among the people.
24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those that follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days.
25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Peter is addressing Israel - Jews - in the temple of God. Of course he means the days they are living in. He didn't say "the prophecies will come about in the days of some future generation." He said:
25 Ye are the children of the prophets, and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.
26 Unto you first God, having raised up his Son Jesus, sent him to bless you, in turning away every one of you from his iniquities.

Real, living people, who were children of the prophets, and of the covenant.

Jesus comes by his Holy Spirit to every believer - beginning with the Jews Peter was addressing - for their, for our, blessing. It is dispensational fantasy to even suggest Peter is actually addressing a future generation of Jews 2,000+ years away.

You do not really believe the plain words of the Bible. take off you dispensational blinders & read the Bible seeking a SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING.

Cr 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
10 But God hath revealed [them] unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
