Somewhere the type has to stop.
Wow, liberalism and higher criticism out of a dispensational fundamentalist.
Why? The Old Testament is the precepts and parables of the Kingdom.
He said to them, "All too well you reject the commandment of God, that you may keep your doctrines. Mark 7:9
So, you were never taught that absolutely every single moment of the New Testament -- absolutely each and every single word and each and every single incident is 100% in the Old Testament, described over and over again in a multitude of very cute ways. You've never been taught a harmony of the whole New Testament with all of the Old Testament.
For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled. Matthew 5:18
But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand. Mark 13:23
But wisdom is justified by all her children." Luke 7:35 (According to the Old Testament, this is each and every syllable of the Old Testament.)
All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him." Luke 10:22 (Hint: It was done thru the Written Word.)
But rather give alms of such things as you have; then indeed all things are clean to you. Luke 11:41 (i.e. the whole Old Testament takes on more than just face value, but includes face value and every type, shadow, antitype, parable, principle)
Truly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all that he has. Luke 12:44 (i.e. that means the Written Word)
"And he said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours. Luke 15:31 (Again, this is the Written Word)
And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that those who want to pass from here to you cannot, nor can those from there pass to us.' Luke 16:26 (Compare with the closing of Hebrews 11 that they without us cannot be made perfect.)
For He is not the God of the dead but of the living, for all live to Him." Luke 20:38 (Hint: If He's still the God of the Old Testament, then it must be living to Him.)
Then He said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Luke 24:25 (Hint: Moses was a prophet, that's why every detail of the Law is Apocalyptic language.)
And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself. Luke 24:27 (Does all mean all??)
Then He said to them, "These are the words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things must be fulfilled which were written in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Me." Luke 24:44 (Compared with Matthew 5:18, quoted above, and apparently absolutely all of it is about Him. Many other passages to specifically base this on besides this one comparison, but trying to be brief.)
The Father loves the Son, and has given all things into His hand. John 3:35 (i.e. every detail of the Old Testament.)
The woman said to Him, "I know that Messiah is coming" (who is called Christ). "When He comes, He will tell us all things." John 4:25 (Does all mean all?)
For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself does; and He will show Him greater works than these, that you may marvel. John 5:20 (Again, does all mean all?)
For the Father judges no one, but has committed all judgment to the Son, that all should honor the Son just as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. John 5:22-23 (Does all mean all?)
It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall all be taught by God.' Therefore everyone who has heard and learned from the Father comes to Me. John 6:45 (People learn from the Father as well??)
However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. John 16:13 (What has the Spirit of truth heard? Would this not include the Old Testament? Then why must the types cease, just because you don't understand the doctrine that each passage goes with??)
All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you. John 16:15 (This includes the Old Testament, otherwise all things aren't His.)
Not a detail will fail to come to pass between now and beyond the all in all world. Here's a classic explanation of Deuteronomy 23:12-13 at how even the going to the restroom law is a picture of the Cross:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCUby8b1zl4
Each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament is that trippy with pregnant revelation of the Cross.
Each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament is that trippy with pregnant revelation of the Church.
Each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament is that trippy with pregnant revelation of marriage between a man and woman.
Each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament is that trippy with pregnant revelation of all of the operations of the gifts of the Spirit, the fruit of the recreated human spirit, and getting the hundredfold and beyond that Jesus taught by applying the Written Word to each and every circumstance of life until there's nothing left, [after it's all hit the fan/thrown at the fan;-) in one's priestly responsibilities with the Written Word,] but wholeness and prosperity in your life.
Each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament is that trippy with pregnant revelation of the discipleship of the nations.
And there's much more beyond that in each and every single detail, even the choice of the lettering, of the Old Testament....
Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things New Testament and Old Testament. Matthew 13:52 (Does every mean every??)
And yes, the New Testament is likewise filled with Bible Codes for each detail of one's life. Time release revelations and manifestations if one's honestly continuing in it with all of their hearts. Take a book of the Bible and read it aloud from start to finish a hundred times this week, then go back and do it again, then do it again, and then do it again 'til you know it better than the dude that wrote it, or it winds up seeming that way. Don't base your life on verses or chapters. Be determined to understand the whole thing the same way you understand the verse or two you think you understand the most. That's when the Bible becomes your wisdom and not just where you find your doctrines. If anyone around here is up to the challenge of always knowing everything He's saying and everything He's doing (Colossians 3:17; 1John 2:6; etc.), never again read anything else but your Bible, unless you're using the internet for basic communications with others, where IM, Skype, etc., require a tiny bit. Read your Bible daily, and not just favorite verses and/or doctrines out of it. Contrary to popular opinion, Concordances and Lexicons don't yield the strongest meat of the Word. You've got to read it yourself, and not just skip reading it.
