What is the “Glorious Land” of Daniel 11:41

Question:

“Receive Greetings in Jesus’ name.I wish to know the identity of the glorious land in Daniel 11:41.Thanks.”

Answer:

Hello Bob.

You’re asking a big question, but the Bible has answers.
In the Revelation there are two cities available for inhabiting. See the list on the first page of the notes I’ve presented on Revelation 17 here.
Also, Christ is the One man who makes up the nation of the 12 tribes of Israel at the end of time, just like Jacob was the one man who made up the nation of Israel during the establishment of the first kingdom with his sons–the 12 tribes. Listen to this presentation here.
So… after going through the above thoughts, what do you see as the “glorious land” and the “glorious holy mountain” of Daniel 11:41 and 45? One thing is for sure, it is not a literal place on this earth.

Justification Retained

But while God can be just, and yet justify the sinner through the merits of Christ, no man can cover his soul with the garments of Christ’s righteousness while practicing known sins or neglecting known duties. God requires the entire surrender of the heart, before justification can take place; and in order for man to retain justification, there must be continual obedience, through active, living faith that works by love and purifies the soul.  {FW 100.1}

Genuine faith will be manifested in good works; for good works are the fruits of faith. As God works in the heart, and man surrenders his will to God, and cooperates with God, he works out in the life what God works in by the Holy Spirit, and there is harmony between the purpose of the heart and the practice of the life. Every sin must be renounced as the hateful thing that crucified the Lord of life and glory, and the believer must have a progressive experience by continually doing the works of Christ. It is by continual surrender of the will, by continual obedience, that the blessing of justification is retained.  {1SM 397.1}

James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
James 2:18 Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
James 2:19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
James 2:20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?
James 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
James 2:22 Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
James 2:23 And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
James 2:24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
James 2:25 Likewise also was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way?
James 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.

Zechariah 3:4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.

Oil in the Palms of Christians

Oil in the Palms of Christians


“Chrism is essential for the Catholic Sacrament of Confirmation/Chrismation, and is prominently used in the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Orders. Those to be confirmed or chrismated, after receiving the laying on of hands, are anointed on the head by the bishop or priest. In baptism, if the person baptized is not to be immediately confirmed or chrismated, the minister anoints them with chrism. Newly ordained priests are anointed with chrism on the palms of their hands, and newly ordained bishops receive an anointing of chrism on their foreheads. It is also used in the consecration of objects such as churches and altars.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrism


“Last night in our church service, an 8 year old girl, who had prayed for someone, found that her hands were dripping with oil. The minister said it was a Sign that she has the gift of healing. Cupped in her small left palm there was about a tablespoon of oil that had pooled upward towards her wrist. Every time she wiped, it would come right back. She stood in the front of the church and we all saw it.”

—Jean_B. on 6/7/08

http://christianblogs.christianet.com/1126750916.htm


“Sacred Chrism is also used in the sacrament of holy orders. In the ordination rite of a priest, the bishop anoints with chrism the palms of each new priest. In the ordination rite of a bishop, the consecrating bishop anoints the head of the new bishop.”

Finland with the1project


In the KJV, there are two verses which include the words “oil” and “palm.”

Leviticus 14:15 And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand:

Leviticus 14:26 And the priest shall pour of the oil into the palm of his own left hand:

In the context of this chapter, a priest is mediating for a leprosy victim. There is represented the forgiveness/cleansing of sin by a sacrifice, the making of an atonement, and more. The priest pours the oil into his own left hand.

If we practice this oil activity without the others surrounding it, are we being partial? Are we partially playing the First Testament priest which only Christ has adequately filled? Are we following tradition more than Biblical directives? What are we doing?

Chrismation is “a rite in the Orthodox and Eastern Catholic churches that is comparable and similar to confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church.” Apple Dictionary.

1 Timothy 4

Hello ______________________,

Thank you for asking about 1 Timothy 4:4-5.
Here are a few thoughts that I hope will be helpful:
1 Timothy 4:3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats (the word “meats” doesn’t necessitate flesh food. It many times means food in general. Notice these verses which DO use the word “flesh” that is eaten, “Romans 14:21 It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak. 1Corinthians 8:13 Wherefore, if meat make my brother to offend, I will eat no flesh while the world standeth, lest I make my brother to offend.”), which God hath created to be received (with this clarification, WHICH God has created to be received, we can conclude that there are some foods which God has NOT created to be received. We could ask, after reading this text, “Which foods?”) with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth (“Thy Word is Truth…” John 17:17.).
1 Timothy 4:4 For every creature (WHICH God has created to be received) of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1 Timothy 4:5 For it (whichever foods one is eating WHICH God has created to be received) is sanctified by the word (extremely important) of God and prayer.
If what we are eating is not “sanctified by the word,” then we are eating things WHICH GOD HAS NOT created to be received with thanksgiving. We are therefore not them which “know the truth,” as stated in verse 3.
All the other Bible verses fit into this context as well.
Here’s a sermon presented that I believe will be helpful as well:
God’s blessing to you!

Remittance of Sins

Question for you: obviously we know only God can forgive sins….so how then do you explain John 20:23 to say, a Catholic, who regularly goes to a priest for forgiveness?

Hello ___________,

The question is good. Here are a few thoughts:

When looking at similar concepts, we must look at Matthew 16:18-23. Christ was saying that Peter was Petros, while He Himself is Petra. Two different words with two different meanings. Peter, or Petros, means a piece of, or a fragment of a rock. Rock, or Petra, means not a piece, but the rock itself. Then He states what sounds like whatever Peter does and says, God obeys and does as well. The “keys of the Kingdom of Heaven” does not mean total access to anything at any time. This is not what was being said. For example: Christ states that He would be killed. Peter rejects that. Christ turns from him (Mark 8:33) and says, “Get thee behind me satan…” Now, if what Christ had just said in verse 18 were true, that the gates of hell would not prevail against Peter, than Christ’s promise had just been broken! Peter was overcome! 

Notice also Matthew 18:14-18. If someone sins, go to him personally. If he doesn’t listen, take another. If he still rejects your offer of reconciliation, take it to the church. THEN we have the similar thoughts as found in John 20:23… The church members must work together with prayer, Bible counsel, personal interaction and corporate decisions to come to the conclusions of what God’s thoughts are about a matter. So, when doing these type of disciplinary actions, we are to find out what God has already known about that someone or situation, and do what we can to work together with what we believe God’s will is in that case. 

We are not called to forgive sin that God must then forgive also because we forgave it first. No! We are to prayerfully search out a situation, doing what we can to reconcile, before concluding that God has either already forgiven someone, or has not, because of that persons decisions. 

There are similar ideas behind ordination. We don’t ordain someone to be accepted by God for ministry. We ordain someone because we believe God has already accepted them and is using them in ministry. Or, we don’t baptize someone to be accepted by God, but do so because God has already accepted that person and we’re showing a public demonstration of what we believe has already happened.

Table of Shewbread in Revelation Five

Hello, you said,

“My kids and I have been going through verse by verse of Revelation with you.  I have a question.  You mentioned in chapter 8 that Jesus “the angel” is near the table of shewbread having two crowns, according to Exodus 25:24-25.  I looked up in Exodus and it talks about making a crown of gold round about and another Bible Version said a molding of gold all around.  Here is my question: “Are these two crowns on the table or as I see it as a frame around the table to seal or protect it”  How do you get or see two crowns??”

When looking at the table of shewbread, there are two stacks of six loaves of bread.
Leviticus 24:5 And thou shalt take fine flour, and bake twelve cakes thereof: two tenth deals shall be in one cake.
Leviticus 24:6 And thou shalt set them in two rows, six on a row, upon the pure table before the LORD.
There are two crowns, as mentioned in the verse you sited. Sure, they could be guards, but that doesn’t take away from their symbolism. So, because–as covered later in the series–Christ is at the lamp stands in chapter one, at the table of shewbread in chapter five, and at the altar of incense in chapter eight. He later moves into the Most Holy place in chapter eleven. You can see that all articles of furniture are mentioned–as long as the table of shewbread is pictured as having two stacks of bread and two crowns–one for the Father, one for the Son (as Christ sat on the right hand of the throne of majesty). =)

The Millennium & the Holy City

Hello…

You wrote:

“Comment: I am a Seventh day Adventist studying with a Baptist preacher. Could you please tell me how you would answer his question regarding Jerusalem in Revelation 20? I told him that was the New Jerusalem that comes down at the end of the 1000 years. He points out that the New Jerusalem does not come down until Revelation 21, after the wicked have been judged. I showed examples where Revelation is not written in chronological order, but I cannot find any scriptural references that support my understanding that is the New Jerusalem instead of the old. How would you address this? I am really enjoying your sermons on going through Revelation chapter by chapter, I first learned about them through audioverse. Thank you for mentioning your website, I will investigate this site thoroughly. You speak in a way that is easy to comprehend. Thank you for your ministry. I will be anxiously waiting for your response. Thank you in advance…”

Revelation 20 plays the future three times over.

Before: 1, “Angel come down”
During: 2, “bound him”
After: 3, “after that he must be loosed”

Before: 4, “I saw thrones”
During: 4, “They lived and reigned”
After: 7, “thousand years are expired”

Before: 11, “a great white throne”
During: 12, “the books were opened”
After: 14, “the lake of fire”

In verse 9, in the context of ‘after’ the millennium, the Holy City–New Jerusalem–seems to be COMING down, though I don’t believe it is pictured there as having COME down completely. Please notice that it is possible that it is still hovering over the earth, if you will, while fire comes down. Then, after the final destruction of sin and sinners, the Holy City continues as pictured in chapter 21.

Please let me know if that makes sense to you. Thanks! Be blessed.

The 144,000 – Literal or Symbolic?

Hello Nigel. Thank you for asking. There are a few reasons I believe what I do, so I will set them out in this response so you can then let me know what you believe:

Revelation 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels (representing God’s providences) standing on the four corners of the earth (symbolic of the entire earth, as the earth is round and has no corners), holding the four winds of the earth (symbolic of the strife and destruction to be let loose in God’s providential timing), that the wind (symbolic of destruction) should not blow on the earth (symbolic of the desolate areas), nor on the sea (symbolic of the populated areas), nor on any tree (symbolic of symbolic of people).

Revelation 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east (symbolic of a message growing in strength like the sun rising), having the seal of the living God (symbolic of God’s people being conformed into the image of God, being obedient to all His commandments–including the Sabbath): and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
Revelation 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees (symbolic of the destruction mentioned above), till we have sealed (symbolic of conformity to God’s will in all points) the servants of our God in their foreheads (symbolic of the where choices are made–in the frontal lobe).
Revelation 7:4 And I heard the number (Literal?) of them which were sealed (symbolic of God’s fitness for heaven, which cannot be seen on their foreheads): and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes (symbolic of the leaders of God’s people in OT history) of the children of Israel (symbolic of the Israel of God, not referring only to the bloodline Israelites, though they can certainly be included).

Now consider a quote used from Early Writings by many people who say that EGW meant that it was literal and ask yourself the question, “Which part of this is NOT symbolizing some greater truth.”:

“I raised my eyes, and saw a straight and narrow path, cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were traveling to the city, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the beginning of the path, which an angel told me was the midnight cry. This light shone all along the path and gave light for their feet so that they might not stumble. If they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the city, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and said the city was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising His glorious right arm, and from His arm came a light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted, “Alleluia!” Others rashly denied the light behind them and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out, leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and lost sight of the mark and of Jesus, and fell off the path down into the dark and wicked world below. Soon we heard the voice of God like many waters, which gave us the day and hour of Jesus’ coming. The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. When God spoke the time, He poured upon us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God, as Moses’ did when he came down from Mount Sinai. {EW 14-15}

Also, if it is literal, why is the tribe of Dan missing?

Please let me know what you think. And if there are other quotes you’d like to have me read, please send them along. Thank you!

Pastor Daniel Mesa.

Is Ordination Present Truth?

There were three items in the earthly sanctuary: a pot containing manna, the ten commandments, and Aaron’s rod that budded. This can be seen in both Old and New Testaments, but notice Hebrews 9:4 putting each item together in one verse, “Hebrews 9:3 And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all; Hebrews 9:4 Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron’s rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant.”

Aaron’s rod was a symbol for a lot of things, as were the pot and commandments (see the above video for a quick overview), but one thing can definitely be found by reading Numbers 16-17–God’s order in the priesthood is important to Him.

Since we are living today in the antitypical Day of Atonement (find a study on that here), which was the only time in Israelite history when the ark was seen during the services, we conclude that the items placed within that ark are especially significant for us today–as present truth.

Is Ordination Present Truth?2016-10-12T22:30:11+00:00

Daniel 2 – the Iron and the Clay

Question:

P.S. do you know any way of connecting the clay in the feet of Daniel 2 with the church / Papacy… in the Bible ? I know that that is easy with Daniel 7… but what about Dan. 2 ?

Answer:

Daniel 2 can be shown as the church and state scenario through the fact that the iron equals Rome (in the division between the iron and clay, there is an obvious change in the character/position of Rome) and the clay is represented as God’s people in Jeremiah 18. “Jeremiah 18:1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying, Jeremiah 18:2 Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words. Jeremiah 18:3 Then I went down to the potter’s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. Jeremiah 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Jeremiah 18:5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Jeremiah 18:6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.”

Remember, the ‘clay’ was not only in apostasy when Jeremiah was writing to them (the Children of Israel), but they were also “marred in the hand of the potter.” God’s people have always been either righteous or unrighteous. In the time of Daniel 2, and during the times specified by the clay, God’s people were apostate—the Roman Papacy. Hence the later call, “Come out of her My people…”

It was said in early church history by Paul, “Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. Acts 20:29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Acts 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” And, unfortunately, we’ve seen that occur in the system of the iron, then the iron and clay.

Why Did God Tempt Abraham?

Hello _______.

This is an interesting question that has led many a Bible student to stop and think further–myself included.
“God cannot be tempted with evil,” according to James 1:13, neither does He tempt any man. But the Bible says, “God did tempt Abraham” (Genesis 22:1, KJV). How can we reconcile this conflict of terms?
“We read that God tempted Abraham, that He tempted the children of Israel. This means that He permitted circumstances to occur to test their faith, and lead them to look to Him for help.” (BC 1094.2)
The Bible says so little about it, we must believe that God’s Word about Himself is true. If God doesn’t tempt man with evil, then that’s what happened. God must have tempted Abraham with something that was not evil. God must have tempted him with a different motive. We can read that Abraham believed that God would raise His son from the ‘dead’ when his faith was tried.
Hebrews 11:17-19 “By faith Abraham, when he was tried [this same word can be translated examined, tested, proved], offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, [we know Isaac was not Abraham’s only son, but he was the only one begotten according to the promise or prophecy, see Galatians 4:22-31]
Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called:
Accounting [this word can be translated esteeming, concluding, reasoning or thinking] that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.”
So because Abraham believed God would raise his son from the dead, as it says in Hebrews, that must have been the test. There must have been something to give Abraham the idea that God would raise his only begotten son from the dead, else he wouldn’t have thought or concluded that He could.
James says in 2:21-24, “Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?
Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?
And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.
Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.”
God was tempting/testing Abraham’s faith. Why? Because the story of a father offering his only begotten son which was prophesied beforehand, was illustrating the bigger picture of a Father offering His only begotten Son which was prophesied beforehand. So, in order to help the people see the depth of the future sacrifice of the Son of God, God illustrated this amazing scenario through Abraham offering his son.
God was illustrating a symbolic point. The point was not evil, it was beautiful.

1 Corinthians 11:1-16 Considered

1Co 11:1  Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ.

1Co 11:2  Now I praise you, brethren, that ye remember me in all things, and keep the ordinances (this word is translated ‘traditions’ every of the 13 times but this one in the NT), as I delivered them to you.

1Co 11:3  But I would have you know, that the head (symbol of authority) of every man is Christ; and the head (symbol of authority) of the woman is the man; and the head (symbol of authority) of Christ is God.

1Co 11:4  Every man praying or prophesying, having his head (symbol of authority) covered, dishonoureth his head (symbol of authority).

1Co 11:5  But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head (symbol of authority) uncovered (as though she doesn’t have one) dishonoureth her head (symbol of authority): for that is even all one as if she were shaven (which would be unnatural for a woman to have no hair, see verse 15).

1Co 11:6  For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered (showing that she is under authority).

1Co 11:7  For a man indeed ought not to cover his head (symbol of authority), forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man (referring to the creation story).

1Co 11:8  For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.

1Co 11:9  Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.

1Co 11:10  For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head (symbol of authority) because of the angels.

1Co 11:11  Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in the Lord (they are referred to as one in the story of creation).

1Co 11:12  For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of God (after creation).

1Co 11:13  Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered (while not being submissive to her God given authority)? (This same logic holds true to men in 1 Peter 3:7.)

1Co 11:14  Doth not even nature itself teach you, that, if a man have long hair, it is a shame unto him?

1Co 11:15  But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her: for her hair is given her for a covering.

1Co 11:16  But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
