PHASE 6 / FOOTNOTES (Also "Daniel's People) ______________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Simplicity - Strong's Con. NT# 572 ἁπλότης haplótēs, hap-lot'-ace; from G573; singleness, i.e. (subjectively) sincerity (without dissimulation or self-seeking), or (objectively) generosity (copious bestowal):—bountifulness, liberal(-ity), simplicity, singleness. 2. Context - (ORIGIN: late Middle English (denoting the construction of a text): from Latin contextus, from con- ‘together’ + texere ‘to weave.’
3. Recieve / retain / hold - Strong's Con. NT#1209 / δέχομαι déchomai, dekh'-om-ahee; middle voice of a primary verb; to receive (in various applications, literally or figuratively):—accept, receive, take. Compare G2983. Jesus has "entered (been received) ...into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us" fulfilling the Law of the the High Priest, to make atonement for our sin and will remain (retained, held) there until "al things that the prophetsl
(1) Abolished - (2 Cor.3:13) Strong's Con. NT#2673 / from G2596 and G691; to be (render) entirely idle (useless)literally or figuratively:—[This Greek word has been translated into the KJV as] abolish, cease, cumber, deliver, destroy, do away, become (make) of no (none, without) effect, fail, loose, bring (come) to nought, put away (down), vanish away, make void.
(2) Done away - (2 Cor.3:) Why would Paul, under the inspiration of God 2 Tim.3:16-17 and taught directly by Jesus Gal.1:11-12) mean that we can disregard the Law because it does not apply to the New Testament Church, when Jesus said, (a) "I have not come to destroy the Law or the prophets" (Matt.5:17-19)
(b) Why would Jesus opened the disciples understanding to the Language of the Law, Prophets and the Psalms (Luke.24:45-46) if they were to be "done away" / abolished. - The answer is because the Law was a schoolmaster to bring to Christ. (Gal.3:24) - When Jesus came He said He would confirm and fulfill the Law - He fulfilled the Feast of Passover. He is our Passover Lamb and all the other offerings. After the Cross all animal sacrifices "ceased." i.e. were done away / abolished. Now we offer "spiritual sacrifices (1 Peter.2:5-9) according to the pattern of the Old Testament. (Review: PHASE 4) - Note: The language of the Prophets and the Psalms is the Law!
(3) For Christ is the end of the law - (Romans 10:4) Strong's Con. NT# 5056 / (to set out for a definite point or goal); properly, the point aimed at as a limit, i.e. (by implication) the conclusion of an act or state (termination (literally, figuratively or indefinitely), result (immediate, ultimate or prophetic), purpose); specially, an impost or levy (as paid):—+ continual, custom, end(-ing), finally, uttermost. Compare G5411. THE KEY PHASE: "for righteousness to every one that believeth." This is because we (i.e. those that redeemed by Christ Blood) have been placed in Christ. (2 Cor.5:17) "For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, (Rom.3:10-31) God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. (Rom.8:1-4)
Note: Rom.10:4 That the has not stop. (Note:1 Tim.1:9)
7. Confirmation / Completion - Confirm (Dan.9:27) in the Strong's Con. OT#1396 / to be strong; by implication, to prevail, act insolently:—exceed, confirm, be great, be mighty, prevail, put to more (strength), strengthen, be stronger, be valiant. In the New Testament (confirmed Gal.3:15) Strong's Con. NT#4300 - to ratify previously:—confirm before.
Jesus Christ's sinless blood fulfills (completes) of the the Old Testament / Covenant blood of the lamb and the blood of bulls and goats. (Heb.9:1-28; 10:1-25) He did not destroy the pattern He confirmed it. God does not show respect animal sacrifices after the Cross. In the confirmation (fulfillment) there are "spiritual sacrifices" (1Our redemption is ONLY in Christ sinless blood. Therefore when the Prophets Word about animal sacrifices goes into the New Testament, the Spirit of Christ is NOT speaking of animal sacrifices, but the fulfillment of them.
Note: According to the pattern of the law, to offer animal sacrifices must be offered upon the one and only Brazen (Brass) Altar (Lev.17:11) in the place that God has chosen. (Duet.12:1-12, Jerusalem)
8. No promise to rebuild natural Temple / House - Review: PHASE 5 / Dan.8:11-13; 9:26 speaks of the "sanctuary" (Temple / House) being cast down / trodden down / destroyed. There is nothing about a rebuilt natural (physical) Temple in the Book of Revelation. There is a Temple of God being measured, (Rev.11:1-2) but not destroyed, cast down or trodden down. This (Rev.11:1) "Temple of God" is the Church (NOTE: Some assume that this Temple (Rev.11:1) must be the 70 AD Temple rebuilt again in the natural City in Jerusalem and thendestroyed again. Luke.21:21-24 PHASE 5, Page 7, VII. A) during the tribulation.
9. Last days a. Last - Strong's Con.#319 / the last or end, hence, the future; also posterity:—(last, latter) end (time), hinder (utter) -most, length, posterity, remnant, residue, reward. b. Days - Strong;s Con.#3117 / from an unused root meaning to be hot; a day (as the warm hours), whether literal (from sunrise to sunset, or from one sunset to the next), or figurative (a space of time defined by an associated term), (often used adverb):—age, always, chronicals, continually(-ance), daily, ((birth-), each, to) day, (now a, two) days (agone), elder, × end, evening, (for) ever(-lasting, -more), × full, life, as (so) long as (... live), (even) now, old, outlived, perpetually, presently, remaineth, × required, season, ×since, space, then, (process of) time, as at other times, in trouble, weather, (as) when, (a, the, within a) while (that), × whole ( age), (full) year(-ly), younger.
10. Spiritually calledSodom - This was destroyed by God (2 Peter.2:1-22) because of their wicked, unlawful deeds and "filthyconversation (life-style, behavior Gen.13:13; 18:20; 23:17, 1 Kings.14:24, 1 Kings.15:11-13) This will be the spiritual condition of the "City where our Lord was crucified" during the rein of the antichrist.
11. Spiritually calledEgypt - Egypt is clearly identified as the bondage of sin, this word. The New Testament writer interprets Christ as our Passover, making Egypt an "ensample" of sin
12. Natural / earthly Jerusalem was the center - (Deut.12:10-11) When "ye (you) go over Jordan, and dwell in the land which the Lord your God giveth you to inherit, (Review: PHASE 2, Page.2) and when he giveth you rest from all your enemies round about, so that ye dwell in safety; Then there shall be a place (Solomon's Temple in the center of natural the City of Jerusalem) which the Lord your God shall choose to cause his name to dwell there; thither shall ye bring all that I command you; your burnt offerings, and your sacrifices, your tithes, and the heave offering of your hand, and all your choice vows which ye vow unto the Lord." (Note: Deut.16:16-17) Isaiah is prophesying the pattern.
13. Zion / Sion - speaking of the same thing a. Old Testament translated Zion - Srongs Con.#6726 / the same (regularly) as H6725; Tsijon (as a permanent capital), a mountain of Jerusalem:—Zion. b.

14. Judah / Jews - The name derived from the patriarch Judah, at first given to one belonging to the tribe of Judah or to the separate kingdom of Judah (2Ki 16:6; 25:25; Jer 32:12; 38:19; 40:11; 41:3), in contradistinction from those belonging to the kingdom of the ten tribes, who were called Israelites. During the Captivity, and after the Restoration, the name, however, was extended to all the Hebrew nation without distinction (Est 3:6,10; Dan 3:8,12; Ezr 4:12; 5:1,5). Originally this people were called Hebrews (Gen 39:14; 40:15; Exd 2:7; 3:18; 5:3; 1Sa 4:6,9, etc.), but after the Exile this name fell into disuse. But Paul was styled a Hebrew (2Cr 11:22; Phl 3:5).

Adam and Eve (Adamic Covenant) c. Noah (Noahaic Covenant) d. Abraham (Abrahamic Covenant) e. Moses (Mosaic Covenant) f. David - (David Covenant) g. Everlasting Covenant
16. Infallible - incapable of making mistakes or being wrong: doctors are not infallible. (English Dictionary) The writer of Hebrews was writing under the inspiration of God. (2Tim.3:16-17) 17.

17a. God told Abraham that "in thee (you) shall all the families (Gen.17:5-6) of the earth be blessed" (Gen.12:1-2) because "if you are Christ's (Eph.2:11-19) THEN are you Abraham's seed." (Gal.3:29) Note these verses. a. Abraham's seed was as the "sand"- The children of the flesh of Abraham (Gen.22:17; 32:12, Isa.10:2, Hosea.1:10, Rom.9:1-27) This "sand" was covenanted to bring us to Christ (Matt.1:1-17) and to be reconciled (redeemed) in Christ b. Abraham's seed was as the "stars"- The children of the promise / Isaac - Those in Christ (Gen.15:5. Gen.22:17, Gal.4:28. John.8:56-59) This seed was prophetic of Christ and His Church. c.

Review: From the Gospels to Acts.15:1-17
a. Jesus (The Word) became flesh b. At the age of 30 He began His confirmation of the Covenant (a whosever Gospel) c. He selected twelve disciples / apostles and confirmed (ministered) for 3 1/2 years to "his own" (John.1:11 The House of Judah / The Jews because of Covenant Rom.11:28, Heb.9:1-10) d. During this time He told the disciples, "I have many things but you cannot bear them now. but when but when the Holy Spirit comes He will guide you into ALL truth about the whosever Gospel e. The Jews rejected Christ as the Messiah and crucified Him after confirming only half of the seven years of confirmation. (Note: Leaving 3 1/2 yet to be confirmedto the Jews. (The children of the flesh of Abraham Rom.9:8) f. Jesus resurrected and told the disciples / apostles to wait until they were "endued with power from on high" (Luke.24:49, Acts.1:1-8; 2:1-17) g.
