I am interested in your interpretation of the "covenant" of Daniel being the New Covenant
promised by Jeremiah, and I find your material convincing.
I am wondering, though, about the "seven year period" of Jesus' ministry being the final week
of the 70 weeks of Daniel. I don't read in the Bible about a seven year ministry of Jesus while
He was on earth. I read about a 3 or 3 l/2 year ministry.
Also, you do not mention the Rapture in this booklet. Do you believe the Rapture is Biblical,
as well as the final fulfilling of the Covenant of Daniel (promised by Jeremiah) when the Jews
in modern Israel accept Yeshua as their messiah? You speak of "Dispensationalism" as
begun by Darby, the person who is often (I believe falsely) credited with "inventing" the idea
of the rapture.
I believe from many other writings I have read that the concept of the Rapture of the Church comes
long before Darby. One excellent presentation in a succinct form is by Holly Deyo on the site
Millennium Ark. Holly gives word for word some of the many writings over the entire time of the Church's
existence about the Rapture. Many pastors and scholars have also written on this subject, too many
to elucidate here, which is why I suggest a search of Millennium Ark for Holly Deyo's archived writings
on this subject.
Holly's husband, the scientist Stan Deyo, has also affirmed his belief in the Rapture, notably in his book
The Cosmic Conspiracy, the Final Edition of which just came out. (He says it's final because time is short).
Perhaps my comments to you on the Rapture are irrelevant, and you do indeed accept it...but I cannot tell if you
do from your post today on Doves (Sept. 24, 20100) or from your booklet.
