Hello MC and Doves
I have posted your letter below submitted on October 26,2013 titled
" The true location of the Jewish Temple "
You referenced: " there shall not be LEFT HERE ONE STONE upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
Spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ.http://www.fivedoves.com/letters/oct2013/mc1026.htm
WAS JESUS SPEAKING ABOUT "THE JEWISH TEMPLE" OR ABOUT BUILDINGS OR INDIVIDUALS ?
Let us begin our "Case" with the words "ONE STONE" which is the focal point of your reference.
There are (8/8) mentions of "ONE STONE" in the King James Bible.
have not gone into a #'s search through "other" sources or translations
of the Bible, I have only used the King James Bible. Neither any
other theological writings, videos, or books.
I believe that God has given us HIS PURE WORD. I believe that
there are NO MISTAKES or CONTRIDICTIONS in the KING
Psalms 12:6 KJV
The words of the Lord are pure words(:) as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified SEVEN times.
The number for man is 6
The number for perfection is 7
The number for Jesus which is ABOVE perfection is 8 ( THE STONE CUT OUT WITHOUT HANDS)
There are (4/4) mentions in the King James Bible for the words "WITHOUT HANDS".
The number for the Spiritual Kingdom is 4.
Daniel 2:34 KJV ( the stone cut out without hands, smote the image upon his feet, that were of iron and clay.
Daniel 2:45 KJV (the stone cut out without hands brake into pieces the five earthly kingdoms.)
Mark 14:58 KJV ( the stone cut out without hands will destroy "this
temple" that is made with hands, and in three days build another made
Colossians 2:11 KJV we are circumcised with the
circumcision made without hands, putting off the body of the sins of the
flesh by the circumcision of Christ:
ONE STONE 8/8
Exodus 28:10 KJV
Six of their names on ONE STONE, and the other six names of the rest on the other stone, according to their birth.
( these are individuals) not a structure or building.
Judges 9:5 KJV Again these are individuals and not a structure or building.
ONE STONE referencing their father.
Judges 9:18 KJV ONE STONE Also an individual and not a structure or building.
Zechariah 3:9 KJV
Referencing the Messiah as the ONE STONE, and God will engrave the graving thereof.
Matthew 24:2 KJV
And Jesus said unto them, SEE YE NOT ALL THESE
(THINGS) ? verily I say unto you, There shall not be LEFT HERE ONE
STONE upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
( INDIVIDUALS) just as that generation of the Exodus did not enter the promised land.)
MARK MAKES IT VERY CLEAR THAT JESUS WAS (NOT) SPEAKING OF "The Temple" BUT RATHER " Buildings "
Jesus answering said unto him, SEEST THOU THESE GREAT BUILDINGS ? there
shall not be ONE STONE upon another that shall not be thrown down.
LUKE CONNECTS A STRUCTURE AND INDIVIDUALS
Luke 19:40-44, 46 KJV
And he answered and said unto them, I TELL YOU THAT, IF THESE SHOULD HOLD THEIR PEACE, "THE STONES WOULD IMMEDIATELY CRY OUT."
AND WHEN HE WAS COME NEAR; HE BEHELD THE CITY, AND WEPT OVER IT. ( the individuals of the city, not the buildings)
Saying, IF THOU HADST KNOWN, EVEN THOU, AT LEAST IN THIS "THY DAY," THE THINGS WHICH BELONG 'UNTO THY PEACE !
THE DAYS SHALL COME UPON THEE, THAT THINE ENEMIES SHALL CAST A TRENCH
ABOUT THEE, AND "COMPASS" THEE AROUND, AND KEEP THEE IN ON EVERY SIDE(,)
AND SHALL LAY THEE EVEN WITH THE GROUND, AND THY CHILDREN WITHIN THEE;
(not yet born) AND (THEY) SHALL NOT LEAVE IN THEE (ONE STONE UPON
BECAUSE THOU KNEWEST NOT THE TIME OF THY "VISITATION".
( individuals are the reference to this ONE STONE left upon another as in the EXODUS generation)
Saying unto them, IT IS WRITTEN, (MY HOUSE) IS A HOUSE OF PRAYER(:) BUT YE HAVE MADE IT A DEN OF THIEVES.
The Temple was a house of Prayer. THE BUILDING
God does NOT DWELL in structures made with hands !
The Tribulation Temple is ONLY important through the BLINDNESS of Israel, (until)
the Rapture of the Church, and then shall their eyes be opened.
ISRAEL WANTS TO BUILD "THAT TEMPLE" SO GOD CAN COME DOWN AND DWELL THEREIN AND BE AMONG THEM !
BUT GOD SAID IN ACTS 7:49 KJV
WHAT HOUSE WILL YE BUILD ME? OR WHERE IS THE PLACE OF MY REST ? HEAVEN IS MY THRONE, AND THE EARTH IS MY FOOTSTOOL:
Our Lord Jesus Christ "THE SON" HAS HIS OWN HOUSE.
Hebrews 3:6 KJV
BUT CHRIST AS A SON OVER HIS OWN HOUSE(;) WHOSE HOUSE
ARE [WE,] (IF) WE HOLD FAST THE CONFIDENCE AND REJOICING OF (THE HOPE)
FIRM UNTO THE END.
OUR LORD WILL NOT RULE IN THE TRIBULATION TEMPLE !
Christians give too much credibility towards the JEWISH TEMPLE TO BE BUILT DURING TRIBULATION.
ONLY HAS MEANING TO THE ISRAELITES, BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL YET
PARTIALLY BLIND TO THE TRUTH OF ALL THAT THE FEASTS AND SACRIFICES MEAN.
"MADE WITH HANDS" is mentioned 7/7 times in the King James Bible.
1.Mark 14:58 KJV
2.Acts 7:48 KJV
3.Acts 17:24 KJV
4.Acts 19:26 KJV
5.2 Corinthians 5:1 KJV
6. Hebrews 9:11 KJV
7.Hebrews 9:24 KJV
KNOW YE NOT THAT "YE" ARE "THE TEMPLE OF GOD," AND THAT "THE SPIRIT OF GOD" DWELLETH "IN" YOU ? 1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV
Lets examine ourselves, whether we be "in the faith;" prove our own selves.
Know we not our own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in us, except WE be reprobates ? 2 Corinthians 13:5 KJV
Know we not that friendship with the world is enmity with God ?
whosoever therefore Will be a friend of the world is an enemy of God.
James 4:4 KJV
That every one of us should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honour; 1 Thessalonians 4:4 KJV
Thank you for your post.
Had you not raised [this Question,]
I also would have thought the same concerning "one stone upon another."
God Bless you all
