  1. As an unrepentant Protestant who also rejects the doctrine of a secret rapture, I just have to refer you to 3 texts, of the many available. They are Hebrews 10:12, 14 (Jesus by ONE offering has provided salvation forever), Hebrews 9:28 (Jesus offered as sacrifice ONCE), which, I believe, precludes any further need for or benefit in the sacrifice of animals in Israel, or elsewhere, or the “sacrifice” of the Mass by human priests). Hebrews 10:18 (since remission of sins is provided by the one-time sacrifice of Christ, “there is no more offering for sin.”

    Not intending to provoke a religious dispute, but I simply cannot accept, in view of the BIble’s plain statements, that whether or not the Jews have animal sacrifices has, in the slightest, any relevance to my salvation.


  2. Whoa, PoliNators are only allowed to talk about stuff directly relevant to our salvation? You guys have even stricter standards than 4gfc! O_o

    Frankly, I hope nothing I said above suggested I think the restoration of the ancient Jewish rituals and sacrifices has diddly to do with our salvation! God forbid!

    But the restoration of these sacrifices is a SIGN of the End Times, something Jesus told us to watch for. (Matthew 24-24)

    I received this note in my email:

    ” I don’t think God will allow it because it would negate the sacrifice of Christ for us.”

    My reply to her and all y’all is this: Nothing can negate Jesus’ sacrifice for us!

    The sacrifices and offerings continued in the Second Temple from Jesus’ death in 33 AD until the Romans destroyed the Temple in 70 AD. Animal sacrifices are no doubt offensive to God, since they represent a rejection of His Son.

    But the prophecy in Daniel 9:27 has always been interpreted to mean that, during the last seven years, Anti-Christ will abolish the Jewish sacrifices and offerings. This presupposes these practices have been restored.

    Daniel 9:27 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
    For one week he shall make a firm covenant with the many;
    Half the week he shall abolish sacrifice and offering;
    In their place shall be the desolating abomination
    until the ruin that is decreed is poured out upon the desolator.

    The Jews who want to restore the ancient practices have all the tools and training to start the sacrifices; they are waiting only for permission from the Israeli government.

    I am puzzled by the expression “secret rapture.” The event Jesus foretold is anything but secret. People are going to suddenly vanish.

    The sacrifice of the Mass is not a renewal, but a continuation of Jesus’ sacrifice on the Cross. This article explains it:
