Starting with Sean in league city, Texas. Welcome to the line of fire and Arterburn are you today doing very well thank you. Good.
I have questioned the first one is relating to second Corinthians chapter 3 verse 18 talks about in NET it better than we are with undeveloped space phase is reflecting the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from 1° of glory to another, which is on the board. Was it. It was the spirit and my question is about what started like this to be from one level to another level.
But in a any contact if you like it was making a contrast between the Old Testament and the new and the new covenant that ran is that is are more but do you say that is not is not either or, in other words, it's building on the concept that there was a glory under the old covenant to under the Sinai covenant that was reflected in Moses face glowing when came from the presence of the Lord's glory that faded. Now there is a new and greater glory under the new covenant, but in that regard. As we grow in grace as we reflect the image of the Lord. More and more as we become more like him.
We go from one level of glory to another, so there's no reason to say it just means from the Sinai covenant to the new covenant can also talk about gross in in the Lord and into the body manifest in the glory of the Lord in a growing way in the new covenant so look at it is both and actually okay and my second question is in regards to when people talk about Erie arm trying to hear the voice of the Lord, I'm charismatic about those units are not coming out of that angle.
But I listen to great copal quite often and I and he had the perspective that I find it challenging, but he it seems that he is right in this and that that we don't actually have to try to hear God's voice, because it got actually be on your going to hear it now. I think a lot of times were conflating God speaking with God moving like you that actively he's actively working in my life like the a lot of times I say all that God became to me when he's really moving in my life and God will just one month and then I'll shut up because like an Old Testament or even a New Testament there was nobody think I can't quite you're a God thing.
They all heard of first first with all respect to Tigre cocoa is a great apologist and teacher effect friend just moments ago someone was articles on a controversial verse in Exodus is a great, great job opening of the Hebrew this'll all respect to him. Here's what would differ. There is learning to hear the voice of the Lord is like learning to grow in many different areas of the Lord in acts 16. Call the team they want to go one direction goes right thing to do in the spring. Lord says no it will in this direction. No and then have it pause dream ensures dream and then they conclude we gotta sing based on that. There are plenty of times in the Old Testament. Without that I spoke and spoke and spoke and you didn't hear right now is obedience to the obedience Mark whether or not, no greater it but start point, but I think that if you can speak.
How does the W done talk about learning to hear the voice of God necessarily in that the Scriptures we might be that by Dottie directed that we grow why is it that we growing a thousand other ways in our relationship with God that we grow in our understanding of the written word.
But we can't grow in recognizing the voice Lord Samuel right it's in the Bible, said it all when God speaks of the first time he thinks it's Eli gets it wrong, but he heard it, but he heard her share of okay so you may not hear that the Lord speaks in John 12 and some people think is thunder right yeah so so people may not realize it at Sean and I'm trying it. I'm trying to help so please, please, here, here all right.
In this regard, no one says that when God speaks everybody necessarily hears God spoke to Paul Wright and some heard it and some didn't hear it so he can speak in a way that it takes a while so you may not recognize that was the voice of the Lord you might have just thought it was your own mind you it and then it's like Eli thought it was someone else's voice, you might hear something but think it's your own mind right, we grow. He was fiber supposed to grow in our discernment of good and evil, right our powers of discernment are trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.
The same way we learn, to grow and hear the voice Lord.
So maybe we hear it, but we think it's all mind. We hear it and we think it's someone calling us. We curated and mistake overhearing and even when we really can read words on a page. Only here really see it as their written front of us, but I'm getting it Sosa same thing with the Lord here with Elijah in first Kings 18 and and and going to the 19th chapter, Lisa, my current so what happens there is this the earthquake there is the fire floors a minute and then the sound of the still small voice that he was very interesting havoc. A sliver of a voice suggesting it was nebulous thing to hear it. So I with all respect, I differ and I would see many scriptural principles that would point to the fact that we learn to understand God speaking.
We learn to to better discern between the voice of the Lord in the voice of her own mind and the voice of others, and it comes out of a relationship with the Lord.
So I would see scriptural principles and then it works out practically like that is also true on it all right give it some thought. Thank you Sean for the call 866-34-TRUTH. Let's go to the meal in Illinois walking to the line of fire. I was reading one garden. 11. In the postwar about men covering the head, and I was reading in the post want you to the barcode that you don't bust on the traditions that he is happy that they are observing it in of the current interest to settle.
I will wondering if you have wrinkled Jewish traditions because the when we watch videos are for the Jews of the Wailing Wall. The men, the head so I was wondering what if you have putting two and I was so and I just realized this morning.
Even Hindu women in India when they go to the temples they color their heads with the end of that. Sorry you did a good drape, the shorter they color their heads, but that you know I wanted him under social trying to oust the glistening with this topic because you know I'll be supposed to follow this. I know many judges American judges that want to get out of it for voice.
You just got to use talking to at that time and please let like you know it when I grew up in India in the Plymouth brethren judge the other women used to color their heads under my wife and we got married she was. She lived in West Africa and just got his magic. She really hated like that so you know medical I would have loved to pull out.
I would like to join judges like the brethren judge because they all follow. One Corinthians 14 with the Lordship of participatory apostasy help us in the worship team. So you're doing the going church you held that selected and quiet. But what I wanted her on the flight had two questions in this is all what tradition this is all referring to the Jewish tradition that you live in a men's Rondo block color their heads when Frank or some other tradition. Unlike the Jewish men, they had no second most important relevant question to me was like I was moving mental watercolor that had been judged. And not just using the medic and the excuse of the just go to the all clear. Okay so first, thanks for the question and my many trips to India this when the women they get the city in the service. Listening to the preaching teaching, but when they go to pray, or if they come up to speak, they will.
There were a breath. The sorry over their head. Okay, he's not talking about passing on Jewish tradition to them, nor was he telling them that this is with culture just because they knew that another was in the culture of the day, a married woman would not leave the home without her head being covered. So her hair was seen as her glory, but also she would not leave the home without her, her head being covered. No failed or covered in the quiver like woman prepare sorry over her overhead something like that right so that that was the norm in the day the question was when you have a meeting in your home now. The woman in the home does not need the married woman in the home does not need to veil or head cover her head. But if you're having a house meeting and bring the public into your home should be done in Paul's teaching was yes and it's a sign of of of authority is the side of the woman's submission to the husband and the things being in proper order in the meeting and therefore it should be done so and then if the woman is God.
Prayer prophesy, then she should have her head covered, right. So how's that apply to today. Will that is not the custom of our culture right so what we want to do is have our families in proper order before God and maintain certain levels of gender distinction before Donald was recognizing that there's a difference between male and female will have those things in order, but covering the head is not our culture is on our culture custom is unknown to us that a married woman cannot go out of the home without her head covered, so today I just do that in the church service. Some do it before the Lord. Hey, that's fine, but I actually do not see this biblically necessary. Why is it that in Judaism men do. This is a sign of reference. Just a reminder that there's a God in heaven above them, so it's a sign of reverence for God above and that's why a Jewish man during every waking hour will have his head cover… Taking a shower or something like that. Hey thank you sir for the call and blessings on your life and marriage work in the church, 8663.

We are to questions of all kinds of things was a great time to tune in for commercial free hour here on one of fire, white lettuce go to a John in Tucson, Arizona. Walking to the line of fire.
Dr. Brown first, thank you very much for everything that you do. You have been blessed listening to your show. Thank you, blow my start time ago I got a little feedback on. My question is about a been a Christian for probably 30 years and I used to listen to Dr. Walter Martin a lot though. When I did that I was still listening to when they transferred over to a different Bible after men, I will mention his name but I've still got into some of the material that the Christian research is to with putting out I listened to recently, I listen to the several book sonic plug click they really don't. But one of them had to do with the untimed one of them had to do it the with afterlife and my biggest thing my Mac main question is about the second coming of Christ not hang up after the when I read Matthew 24 and I believe it Mark 13, and Luke 21 I see it, and what this author does or they try to make it sound like almost the entire thing took place in A.D. 70, but I have a difficult time reading that passage and saying this completely happen in A.D. 70. I know is not a full predator and I know that all some people partial credit risk, but even reading that I understand that it had to do with the temple, but I don't see that even the partial pressure of them in there because there is a clear clear line clear a jump from the verses where he talks about the harvesting of salt and again thank you very much for your ministry hey John, thank you for the call. She hang up and listen 866-34-TRUTH so the limited nature was Hank paragraph Hank and I in the earlier days of the Brown's revival had some difficult interaction but then we became friends during it and have been colleagues ever since my dinner once and sees been in the Charlotte area many years, but similar friend Siebel run into each other at conferences so that and even as as as Hank is become Eastern Orthodox and still love and and respective and pray for God's grace to be with him as he continues on the spiritual journey of you went with what I met with Hank years back. He gave me his his entire book with a smile like Dracula like this one so and I recently did an online debate with Dr. Gary DeMar who is a very strong partial predators that mean really, in many ways goes beyond what many of the partial predators directing verse after verse in the New Testament that we've all understood about the future second coming. A signal that literally happened in 70 A.D. so aside from a massive exaggeration it in terms of the whole church world of the impact of the destruction of the Temple in the year 70.
You absently have verses in Matthew 24 that cannot apply to the destruction of the temple. What happened before Matthew 2414 and this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. How else could you say that the whole world to all nations up all will talk about the gospel going all nations, meaning all the nations that they knew and could be reached at that time.
But Paul certainly knew there was much to be done still with the great commission recess in Colossians 1 that the Gospels and preached every creature under heaven means reverence. Gone is been preached. Everybody ED did not imagine that the mission was done that everyone on the entire planet had heard the gospel and those other writings, longing to go here and here and bring the message, etc. so again when you have these phrases. The whole world all nations know that has not yet happened.
And then then as you go down even where it says that the that the AAA shall happen will be great and nothing will ever be greater than that. And yet you have clear passages about the end of the world and the destruction likes of which we've never seen the past by that right of first the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the was so will be the coming of the Son of Man. While the whole world did not see that as as happens with lightning where everyone can see it where they are know that that didn't happen and then immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be dark and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. You say will that's apocalyptic imagery from the Old Testament yet could be, but some of it does speak about the end of the age as well then will appear in heaven.
The sign of the Son of Man and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect together from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the that didn't happen either reinterpret all those words in the most stretched forms imaginable to say that that are ready have little respect to the prettiest partial predators.
Scholars obviously categorically differ without reading, and interestingly, the early church. They were looking to Matthew for the centuries that followed is something still future for the record, I something happened already so many biblical passages like Ezekiel 36. The return from exile from the Babylonian exile's right what happens there will similar passages refill. But the biggest parts would still have been fulfilled. This is often the way prophecies are this unfoldment is a joining together kind of a layered way of looking at things because they ask and remember verse three when this is happening. Destruction of the temple and what can be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age and he tells us in Matthew 13 the end of the ages. The final harvest and the Matthew 2020. I'm with you always, even to the end of the age.
Dr. Mark did to Dr. DeMar said with you always. That means you know the future. Up until the real end of the age and even to the end of age means destruction of the temple wall the promisor and even is there in the Greek and and failed to catch that I was looking at the Greek carefully as we were talking and I just failed to remember that the Jesus does he eat it is not two separate things out with you always, to the end of the age so was he telling the disciples with into the temple was destroyed. Obviously not and then what is the Bible say about the trumpets at the trumpet blasts the same words. Use the paresthesia is coming are being gathered to him. Second Thessalonians 1 and pulses that won't happen until the Antichrist is revealed and and then Jesus will destroy him with the breath of his mouth when he returns.
And that's what the trumpet blasts were caught up to meet him in the deadness are resurrected, we meet in the air and sent together so absolutely cannot be. Speaking of everything happening destruction of the temple.
Much of Matthew 24 the all the discourse more 13 to 21 remains for the future. Absolutely no question about 86634 let's go to Roy in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Thanks for calling the line of fire. I was not there but to throw his question out and then get back your calls is ask if we should do business with companies that are supporting abortions. First let everyone act according to your own conscience before the Lord right in many ways it's almost impossible to live in this world today about doing businesses with companies that support some because we differ with just issues of gay activism toward you cell phone hard to get out playing or to use a computer or to print some of your computer without supporting a company that in some way supports aspects of gay activism that we would strongly differ with this followers of Jesus we want everyone to be treated fairly under the law whenever you want to be treated with compassion and respect right but we differ with many aspects of gay activism.
Almost every major company in one way or another actively supports causes that we would differ with soul what I've done this little cabin use my computer and use my printer and use my credit card for the glory of God and to undermine the things that I believe these companies are doing wrong. I get out messages that speak the truth. However, when it comes to a company that is going over and above different companies or say. Now they will pay for their employees to go to another state to get an abortion.
As a matter of conscience, you might just sound and have to inconvenience myself and that is the company was it. If it's a matter of choice. If if every grocery store in your community and every farmer in your community. Selling produce every single one that you can get access to food from said were supporting abortion actively will you starve to death or you eat the food in a more pro-life out would eat the food more for pro-life but will you have choices that you can make then accordance your conscience before the Lord make those choices not with the goal put a company had a business purchasing and conscience before God.
I have to draw this line in the sand right straight back to your calls.
On the other side of the great coverage that is the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown good questions. We've got answers, 866-34-TRUTH. Let us go to Joseph in Atlanta, Georgia. Welcome to the line of fire hi there Dr. Brown. I have a question about Daniel 920, I basically I know that the patent basically said that the 52 week five shall be cut off, but not for himself. In the event I have basically 62 week Don have speculated that that his ministry was actually one year instead of three, and they basically want birth of Boeing dominantly and the question is Michael Rood basically said that there was a pathogen added in John that indicated there was another path overnight gospel. So my question to you is just based on what you know scholarly it is it really three years and if so what brought you to that that that that that viewpoint and is there any validity as far as the thought of his ministry being one year no validity to it. Michael is very unreliable as a source will bring in very, very bizarre theories and claim to have exclusive insight into the ancient calendar. The one book of his that I reviewed many years ago was absolutely off the wall so there may be some good stuff is teaching as well, but the only things have looked at carefully, have been literally off the wall so sometimes someone will bring a point. Is it all, nobody knows this. All the scholars it is with the get wrong when you hear that almost always the person's off almost always there, bring in something that other scholars are fully aware of and reject because there's no substance to it and there certainly no substance to back that in in in Daniel 926 whatsoever. In fact, you could even argue that, based on one interpretation of the 70th week that it points to 3 1/2 your ministry of the Messiah, but basically the, the sequence of accounts. The trips that are given from place to place.
The development of the understanding of the disciples and the growing tension with the religious community. The visits to Jerusalem etc. as scholars have analyzed these things over the years. They recognize that John focuses on for the most part on the latter part of Jesus ministry and that a good chunk is is the last days of of his ministry. In John's Gospel, but otherwise just all of the cumulative evidence does suggest things unfolding over period of a few years you could argue for slightly less than three years of slightly over three years or things like that that you reducible to one year.
According to everything I understand is untenable, even if just based on John to if there is an earlier cleansing of the temple and then a later cleansing of the temple and then this is just part of the things that happened during a certain season over the over the life of the ministry of Jesus. Even that setting it apart by by a further year or more so I would just look at at any standard New Testament survey or just get online and look for for reliable sources that are more mainstream explaining why we come up with the chronology that we do but let's just say this. Reduce it to a year. You've got to overcome a mountain scholarship and you're not going to do it by being fringe and coming up with all kinds of speculation near the want to discover this or that. There's a reason that people reject these sources of speculation, because it is just that speculation all right.
Well, thank you so much, but definitely clarify the that particular question that I had like you for your time. You are you are very welcome sir 866-34-TRUTH by the way, I'm all for questioning things almost re-examining of the of the next 50 years.
I'm all for doing this is just doing the reliable way due to the soundly doing away the seller call you see this is a conspiracy.
The church are Biblical scholars try to keep this I will have discovered almost always 9.999% on bogus bogus bogus scholars are fully familiar with it for good reason.
Dismiss the argument all right. Let's go to Isaac in El Salvador. Welcome to the line of fire.
Thanks for calling I think about. Thank you Michael and I'm grateful for bring you with objection and there are wonderful thank you hello to hear that yeah regard and revelatory get dog one with a I think you found know I can be the buyer of the former often but thought nothing but the reading.
You know, but will break you ne'er bumped on notebook and Adia, but the same time I have.
I want with them, but I believe right now deleted from storm.
The members of heaven and one of my follow up with the song is that the beginning of microburst. I knew several people nobler though. Right now, I know the real I know that you of the law.
But my question for you would be and how can a person know the day and genuinely have their phone because first Corinthians or theme that something like that. One of the range song nobody on the right with the spirit okay but maybe I can be felt all talking something that is not eligible or maybe I'm being wrong. People are playing a thunk the great question what you requested and by the way when people say other gibberish he speaks.
It is not tongue so that's what Paul said to an outsider discussing gibberish.
The just thinking of by Bob or Barb are you barbarian, so Isaac Linnaeus requested. How do you know that you know that your born-again.
How do you know that's real well. I would say that I have all direct knowledge and inquiry very well.
In my life I might be able to open it incredible that I will got it right so to God at his word and he came at you like and change you. You know that you know that you know that's real okay so it's a similar thing speaking in tongues that you ask God, Lord, I asked for the fullness of your Holy Spirit that you can be glorified in the IIS you work through me in the maximum way that you can to bring glory to yourself and to strengthen me to do your will and as you feel the Holy Spirit moving on you and you feel prompted your praising, worshiping and praying you feel prompted to begin to speak a new language as you do with your experience over period of time or instantly supernatural edification, you will experience upbuilding. The Holy Spirit will move in your life. It is your prayer life will be deepened to begin to get insight as you pray, how to pray for certain things. So you you and then remember Jesus says that it that if what the fathers there. What man's their view of his son ask for bread, will give him a stone right in Matthew 711, Murphy asked for fish, will give them a snake instead so few being evil, know how to give biggest your children, how much more will your heavenly father give good things to those who ask. So as I'm asking the Lord, not just for experience for feeling right, but for the fullness of his spirit at work in my life so I can best glorify him unlock and receive a demon as I do that right is like the Cindy deception so as I'm walking with him worshiping him and I just begin to pray in the language. I remember being at a prayer meeting January 24 through 72.
I just felt like feel like substance and the custom words came to my mouth is like, you can make that up. I go Lala Bob Obama right you could make things up, but then it had little bit more and then as I prayed more came out nice. With this, just flowing this dysphonia and more prayed like that the more built-up I got more effective I was when I went to Mr. people that that was the number one thing I realized while I really pray more in tongues and feel more effective as a go to minister to others and then II would feel the deepening and in my fellowship with God invented, deepening and and and how to pray. I feel a pray in tongues for an extended period of time and the next thing I'm I'm weeping with the burden and and or praying for very specific situation, so you have the promise of the word and then gobble back the experience in your in your in your life in a way that is edifying in upbuilding and you see a bear fruit over period of time. That's how you know it's real and and it's that simple. To me it's the same relationship you have with God and everything else. Just working its way out in this specific instance and you'll see you'll know you have a solid relationship with the Lord. You told me is radically change your life. It will be evident that is the Lord at work in your life all right, all right.
Thank you for that. You are very very welcome my thinking?
Provide the desire I have never been lately. I found very very hard to believe but II want, maybe up and looked out, and then I'm I'm dumping the way out. Maybe around the life of John Weaver and and last time you had out program you will. You were invited people get that bad argument throughout the number about yeah both I want to know and gain. I wanted out. Maybe that way if you think they can go in and I and I wanted to know the me that they face anything blamed you know no one at the Pacific bear came back up this claim, but we have done it through deductive argument and evidence that we have 40 they can claim that you know God never gave any warning.
A thump of Israel and begin informality and there will be 400 years without profit you don't have the John.how are you just jumping the gun break coming up. Here's the difference is first God document warning the New Testament explicitly says these things will continue until Jesus returns that we will have them until we see the Lord face-to-face and explicitly tells us to pursue prophecy not to forbid tongues and it it tells us that we are to pray for the sick and expect to see healing so it gives us a mandate a commission to pursue these things and in addition to that makes clear. These will continue until he returns the outpouring with prophecy next to us for the last days until the end of the harvest, so that would be a very big difference right there. Thanks are the line of fire with your host Dr. Michael Brown get on the line of fire by calling 866-34-TRUTH here again is Dr. Michael Brown enough 866-34-TRUTH. By the way, the fact that no one called with a substantial argument of any kind for sensationalism in NR sensations: date does not prove that no one has an argument. It simply proves no one called in that they know in my view, there is no biblical argument for sensationalism with all respect to my secessionist friends. If you make an argument you do it based on experience, rather than the Bible. In my humble opinion, and even then we have answers and responses based on the Bible, but I'm not saying that no one but there may be learning scholars at Seneca: radio show or 20 people. Another show was what was happening, but in my view even the best of scholars and theologians cannot bring a biblically-based argument for sensationalism and I remain very happy to debate those qualified scholars, theologians that would like to have a formal debate for the glory of God in the edifying of the body like let's go to Stephen in Minnesota. Thanks for holding walking to the line of fire will be there okay go ahead need to turn down your radio go ahead so the question really looking at the gifts of the spirit particularly begin in contract better try to narrow it is something you didn't answer as much, but oh, got a couple Frank run away to the prayer room and both of them are very brief.
The opening up to think of spirit like nothing and so warm point is that I want to be careful to how you beat careful about thinking to get the spirit speaking time and really, how do you know if you don't have an experience if you don't have like you mentioned that language coming up. How do you know whether or not your speaking icons or how you really think that right so it's a great question, Stephen, and it's one that someone easily could have had in the first century right.
In other words, there was no test and asked to the believers spoke new languages spoken than before people heard the praises of God in their own language, but when Paul is talking about it for strengthens 14 is something very different. He said no one understands you speaking ministries in your spirit doll which is a beautiful and wonderful things ratify yourself which is healthy because this way and then at June 20 tells us to build ourselves up in the most holy faith, praying in the spirit is good to of ourselves is that we can better serve and help others. But when Paul says that he speaks of the gift of the spirit to interpret and enlist someone has a gift, then you shouldn't speak in tongues deliver messaging up in a public meeting because no one understands, so it could have been the same question, then first grade. In the days of first Ritz's Academy was real right.
This is the dictionary for tongues there. There is there is no okay here's the test outlets. It sounds like this. There are this many syllables, the know.
So how would one know, like anything else Stephen how do you know you making a right decision on your job.
You know you make the right decision with your spouse for the future how you know your making right decisions or to the seminary were to run the mission field. Seek the Lord earnestly right. Use the wisdom that you have and then you trust that is he doing the right thing. He bears witness with the spirit and if something is wrong, then then it hit the be that lack of witness. So one thing is as you pray in tongues on a regular basis over period of time, you will have a growing witness of the Spirit. I discovered that no one taught that to me but so did pray in tongues alone five minutes and 10 and 15 and 20 than half an hour. I was getting built up in my interbeing and in my mind was starting to become more aware of spiritual realities, biblical truths were opening up to me, etc. that measures the other thing if you're making up words right you're aware of that. For example, if you're making up words and then you start reading the book, look at that book and read the book in your mind start counting from one to 100 and I can be able to make up words without getting distracted I can pray in tongues and counted my mind when our I could pray in tongues and be reading the Bible. At the same time because it's coming from another part of my mind and my being effect.
I remember early on in the Lord, the house of some friends past recess actually hang out with his family and I want to just get along. Pray for an hour while they were doing some other things.
So once one room upstairs and counted 60 times in my mind to a minute as a drummer I can keep a beat while concentrating in prayer in tongues so it was coming from and that that's what arrest must come from a different part of my mind. So there are ways to test it like that.
But most importantly, over a period of time you'll find edification growth strength will really be undeniable and and that will be the Holy Spirit bearing witness with your spirit that this is real all right I will thank you for the call and the question for many of us have wondered about the same thing.
Let us go to Sharon in Connecticut. Thanks for holding and welcome to the line of fire and could take my car, you become a practically old covenant, Israel was warned for years and years that they would be destroyed if they did not turn back to the Lord and went right, while others remain in Deuteronomy 28 went there any prophetic warning you about the Holocaust with Scripture, so obviously it's it's a sensitive issue to talk about because of the death of suffering involved and we're not attributing this to specific sin, while Jews rejected Jesus as well. Holocaust happened in the make statements like that is is so callous and so ignorant and so wrong. Just on the surface. Also, 1900 years later than that's when this punishment comes etc. so we had three very sensitive assessing sure you are when you asked the question. Deuteronomy 28 is a general prophecy about blessings and curses those I don't see is a specific prophecy of the Holocaust as much as horrific suffering of all different kinds for people so if if you take a pass is a Jeremiah 30 Jacob's trouble, right without question. Initially, it's talking about punishment on that generation in Judah and in the Sudan kingdom. The southern kingdom at the hands of the Babylonians.
That's clearly the first reference.
However, as I study this carefully from a Jeremiah commentary.
It seems to be a template in a prophecy or future suffering.
In other words, Jacob's trouble has recurred over the centuries.
It recurred with the destruction of the first Temple is a season with destruction of the second Temple and followed by culpable war and some of the exiles and some of the massacres that have taken place and the Holocaust so I believe in that sense, there are some prophecies of coming destruction that have replayed over the centuries but aside from aside from that, sure, I can think of something that I would specifically say all this directly foreshadows the Holocaust.
Nothing like that as much as a pattern. The tragically repeated itself that make sense that thinking about benefit by reading the crapping on the field and fight horrific.
What happened in 4030 was there any warning at all for the people to flee here get out of Germany or get out of country so that's that's a separate thing and yes there were voices in the Jewish community warning people to flee.
No with the voices known how lovely with the voices heard could and sounded even more loudly. That's all debatable, but for sure for sure. There were voices that were warning get out. Destruction is coming and it was in the silly by religious people as much as people so the handwriting on the wall and then interestingly, when things started happening in Germany because so many of German Jews were very secular. That living as traditional Jews and the laws were being passed against Jewish people. There were traditional rabbis who said this is a punishment for sins because we have ceased to observe the Sabbath. We have ceased to honor God as a Torah community, and therefore these things are happening to us as judgments of some are even thinking that way initially before the thing unfolded in it in its full horror wasn't Jabotinsky on want to say this wrongly, but you can check this letter, Jabotinsky, one of the voices that was warning to to flee. While there was still time. There certainly were some but again, in retrospect, with a herd throughout the Jewish world at that time were they as loud as they could have been. That's all debatable. In hindsight, by the way, some have looked at Zechariah 13.
It speaks of two thirds of the land will be will be cut off some civil that's that's what happened with the first and second Jewish revolts in in the first and second century of this error. That's what ultimately happened then say no, no, that's a future thing that's gonna happen in the land of Israel and and destruction coming on Jewish people. I don't subscribe so if you personally, but some hold to that immunoassay will most two out of every three Jews in Europe were killed except that's not similar happened in the land so with that, we see that is a direct prophecy.
