Matthew 24:34 “Verily I say unto you, this generation shall
not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.”
Who, or what is the generation mentioned in this passage?
Psalm 78 opens with a clue that should not be easily
dismissed. An unveiling occurs in the
first three verses, which permit the well-read thinker to explore a mystery
hidden in plain sight. “Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline
your ears to the words of my mouth. I
will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old: Which we have heard and known, and our
fathers have told us.
In Genesis 1:31 the Bible states, “And God saw every thing
that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…”
Genesis 2:1-3 declares, “Thusthe heavens and the earth were finished,and all the host of them.2) And
on the seventh dayGod ended his work
which he had made;and he rested on the seventh day from all his work
which he had made. 3) And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:because that in it he had rested from
all his work which God created and made.”
When God completed His creation He viewed everything as
Will we need the Ten Commandments in heaven? Revelation 21:1 tells us that there will be no more death. Why should we worry about the 6th commandment if death cannot be found? What about the 7th commandment? If there is no marriage in heaven, then who could commit adultery? I am also very sure that there will be no other gods, so how could we break the 1st commandment? I don't think we will need to be reminded to keep the Sabbath day holy (Isaiah 66:23). Nor do I think we will be making idols.
Isaiah 42:8 “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory
will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.”
Jeremiah 17:5 “Thus saith the LORD; ‘Cursed be the man that
trusts in man, and makes flesh his arm, and whose heart departs from the
No where in Scripture are we told to exalt man above
God. Nor are we permitted to place man
on the same level as God. However, many
in the Church are doing just that. When
we allow mans judgments or thoughts to supersede God’s Word, we are walking on
This study is designed to understand God’s involvement with
His people throughout time. One of the questions to be asked is, how has God
dwelt with His people. I am suggesting
that the two primary temples represent the person of Christ Jesus. All things point to Christ; why should the
temple be any different?
Exodus 25:1, 8 “And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying…let
them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.”
This is the formation of the tabernacle in the wilderness;
also know at the tent in the wilderness.
There is a book titled, "Mideast Beast" by Joel Richardson, that I highly recommend.
With all that is going on in our world today, we need to take a fresh look at how we view endtime events.
Joel also has many youtube videos on this subject. Check them out!
I will begin by saying; I believe the Ten Commandments have
a place in the New Covenant. With that
being said, let us examine a few things.
There is a distinction between what we call the Law of Moses
and the Ten Commandments. Even though
Moses was given the Decalogue, there remains a difference between it and the
Law of Moses. The Ten Commandments were
written by the finger of God (Exodus 31:18) the Law of Moses was written by the
hand of man. Consider Deuteronomy
31:24-26, “And it came to pass, when Moses had made an end of
Many people put their trust
in the here-and-now. Things like
money, housing, family, and friends, to name a few. These things aren’t evil, they can however be unfulfilling. Let’s be frank, to trust means to have
confidence in and reliance on something or someone. Material thing are not always dependable, and relationships
(even with family) can fall short at times. (I know there’s someone out there that’s saying, “not my
family.” I’m addressing those who
live on planet earth.
Success – understanding that Christ is in complete control
of the believer’s life.

It is God’s plan that we endure the trying of our
There is no greater guide in all the world than the Holy
Spirit. No one can comfort the
heart, and direct the mind like God’s Spirit. Men have tried to organize the path of others, only to find
themselves short of reaching the goal in their own lives. No one will ever suffice, in the end we
must confess; I am mere man in need of a Savior.
We often glorify people who, for one reason or another, have
helped us as we journey through this life (help is good and should be received
