Prophets North and South - August 1, 2018

It is important that you read the "August 2018 Newsletter" before you read this month? article "Israel and Judah: 31. Prophets, Writings, and Kings." The Newsletter will give you context about the article. Most of you familiar with the Bible understand that Elijah and Elisha certainly were contemporaries. Elijah literally passed his "mantle" over to Elisha so he could continue the prophetic ministry to the northern kingdom of Israel (2 Kings chapter 2). Elijah retired to sunny southern Judah. He later wrote King Jehoram of Judah a letter (2 Chronicles 21:12).
 
Threshing Floors as Sacred Space - July 15, 2018

The threshing floor where the Temple in Jerusalem was built was not chosen simply because it was convenient. Threshing floors were considered sacred places. One Jerusalem threshing floor became even more sacred as the place of the Israelite Temples, all on the site God chose on the threshing floor above and west of the Gihon Spring. King David of Israel purchased that threshing floor and Solomon built the first Temple to YHWH upon it.
 
Temple Symbolism - July 1, 2018

The symbolism of the Tabernacle and Temples is the subject of this month's article "God's Temples, Present, and Future." It is introduced by the "July 2018 Newsletter," which you should read first for context. The illustration of the Tabernacle/Temple is teaching that begins in Genesis with Eden and ends in Revelation when a structural Temple will no longer be necessary. Symbolic teaching ends when it has served its purpose.
 
The Father of Spirits - June 15, 2018

Can angels and other spirits call God their Father? No, He is their Creator. Yet Hebrews 12:9 says God is "the Father of spirits." Which spirits are meant? This Commentary explains.
 
Zion and the City of David - June 1, 2018

This Commentary deals with an objection to a Gihon Spring location for the Temple of Solomon first presented by Dr. Ernest Martin in his book The Temples That Jerusalem Forgot. Dr. Martin? evidence showed that no Temples of God were located at the traditional "Temple Mount" site of the Haram esh-Sharif.
 
Man's Lies, God's Wisdom - May 16, 2018

In this Commentary I revisit and expand my January 1, 2006 Commentary. It introduces the ?anuary 2006 Newsletter and article for that month, ?he Pagan Immortal Soul and ?ouble Doctrine? on the ASK website. ?an? Lies?are that human beings have an immortal soul. The teaching is not biblical and comes from a method of teaching called ?ouble Doctrine.?Lies are told to the people (the ?asses? in order to have power over and control their behavior. God in His wisdom hides information but does not lie to His future children of God.
 
A Brief Temple Timeline - May 1, 2018

This month's article is titled "A Short History of God's Temples." Read first the "May 2018 Newsletter." I created the timeline below to list important Temple events. This timeline will be a work in progress with adjustments made when new information is brought to light.
 
The Importance of Keys - April 15, 2018

Keys are important in Scripture. Ancient keys were large and had to be carried on the shoulder. There is literary evidence from secular sources that what is described in Isaiah 22:22 was indeed what keys were like in the time of Hezekiah and Isaiah.
 
Pope Francis Declares, ''No Hell'' - April 1, 2018


 
Preparation of the Lamb - March 15, 2018

The Jewish festival of Passover 2018 begins the evening of Friday, March 30 and ends at sundown Saturday, March 31. The apostle Paul tells us that Christ was our Passover: ?urge out therefore the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are unleavened. For even CHRIST OUR PASSOVER is sacrificed FOR US?(1 Corinthians 5:7).
 
The First Family and the Last Family - March 1, 2018

I am not writing about the First Family of the President of the United State. I write about the First human Family in history × Adam and Eve. From them the entire human race was born, through the flood, repopulated, with an estimated 7.6 billion people alive at this moment. Adam and Eve did not do well.
 
How the Eons Were Made - February 15, 2018

This Commentary explains Hebrews 1:2. In his introduction to the Book of Hebrews the apostle Paul in the first three verses of the first chapter gives us six important declarations about God̉³ Son has done, will do, and what He will receive from His Father. One of the things the Son has done is He made the eons.
 
Elijah, Elisha, and Ahab? Descendants - February 1, 2018

A long-running prophecy first presented by Elijah the prophet to King Ahab of Israel predicting the downfall of the house of Ahab comes to fulfillment in this month? article, ?srael and Judah: 28. The Reign of King Jehu of Israel.?Please read the ?ebruary 2018 Newsletter.?The information is complex, but I hope I can make it clear.
 
Post Resurrection Acts of Christ - January 16, 2018

Most are familiar with Christ's death, resurrection, His appearing to His disciples after His resurrection, and His ascension to heaven from the various accounts in the four Gospels. I explore some details of those events, specifically those after Christ's resurrection.
 
Who, What, Where - January 1, 2018

The people, the events, and where the events will happen are vitally important to a proper understanding of Bible prophecy. This is the subject of the first article for 2018, a transcribed tape of Dr. Ernest Martin? that I titled ?eography, a Prime Prophetic Truth.?As always I recommend you read first the ?anuary 2018 Newsletter?that contains additional background information on prophetic geography.
