Over the years (and even now) many assert that God is going to put Israel back under the Mosaic Law for the time of the 70th Week of Daniel.Is this true?
Let's pretend that this assertation is true; that God does indeed put Israel back under the "Mosaic Law" for the 70th Week.Realize that this will then mean that the whole world will be back under the Law as well during the 70th Week.Even under the Mosaic Law, the Law was given for BOTH Jews and Gentiles. It was just that the Jewish people were entrusted as the keepers of the "oracles" (written law) of God. But they (the "oracles") were NEVER meant to be for anyone's salvation, whether the Jews then at Christ's time or in the future. The Jews under the Mosaic Law were to be a "light unto the Gentiles", just as Christ and His church are to be.
Question: if this assertation by some is true, then when is Christ going to be the fulfilling of the Law again after the Rapture?The only fulfilling of the Law, for the remission of sins (against the Law of God!) is the shedding of blood. And only Christ's blood will suffice.
So when is Christ going to die again for the remission of sins againsts the (Mosaic) law of God, if there is a restitution of the Mosaic Law after the Rapture?
Didn't Christ say (on the cross) "...It is finished"? Or did He say "It is finished, conditionally, until the Great Tribulation"?
Colossians 2:14-"And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, (THIS IS THE MOSAIC LAW) and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it".
The above passage is not conditional, so when is Christ going to die again if Israel and the world are put back under the Law in the 70th Week?
At His Second Coming? He would then have to be re-crucified! He would have to be crucifed again to again blot out the ordinaces against them (the Law-because He put them back under it) and nail it to His cross again.
Hebrews 10:8-"Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. 10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all".
Hebrews 10:16-"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; 17 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. 18 Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin".
Where and when will there again be the offerring for sin if Israel (after the Rapture) is put back under the ordinances that are against them (the Mosaic Law)?
To assert that God is going to put Israel back under the Mosaic Law after the Rapture is to say that the sacrifice of His Son "once for all" is/was conditional and therefore of none effect after the Rapture.Let's say (hypothetically) that the Rapture happens this October (as many believe it will) and thus begins the 70th Week of Daniel.
That means that the Jews will be thrust under the Mosaic Law in November. Right?
My question to them is the same they ask of us (me, Sherry Vance, and Phil Rogers at www.godstimeline.net).......Where is the "temple" to keep the Mosaic Law?And the "temple" is needed to be where God has placed His name. In Jerusalem, on the Temple Mount.Where is it folks?
Where is this temple of block and stone for them to be obedient to the sacrificing for sin under the Law if they are going to be back under the Mosaic Law after the Rapture?Where is the temple for which the antichrist is to make this abomination that maketh desolate?
Where is the beginning of the construction of it on the Temple mount?
Where is it for those who think the 70th Week must start in 2010?
There is less than 3 months left to 2010. Where is it?Please don't say that the Jews will simply erect a make-shift "tent" as a substitute for the Temple....the "tent" was the "tabernacle", not the "temple".These are good questions that demand an answer, especially to those who purport that Israel will be thrust back under the Mosaic Law after the Rapture.Kevin
