Feature Article- Divine Pattern of the Cross

What are the implications of the following Bible verse?

Rev 13:8  And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.

How was Jesus slain from the foundation of the world? Is this simply a metaphor? If the sacrifice of Jesus was not available till the time Jesus came to this earth, were the Jews really dependent on animal sacrifices until the real thing happened? Was Aaron alone the priest and mediator for Israel? Were these not a shadow of heavenly things then present in heaven?

Why does Isaiah 53 protray the Messiah as already wounded 700 years before Christ actually came?

Isa 53:5  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

Why does Psalms 110 express the priesthood of Melchizedek as present in the time of David?

Psa 110:4  The LORD hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek.

It says thou art a priest, not thou will be a priest in the future.

I hope you find the article The Divine Pattern of the Cross helpful in addressing these questions

Appeal to Pr Doug Batchelor on the Trinity

Nearly 12 months ago, I was alerted to the fact that Maranatha Media had been raised in a question by a young GYC attender. The response to that question was disappointing and so I wrote a letter explaining the true situation. You can read my letter and the reply HERE

William Miller Abandoned the Trinity long before 1844

Many people teach that William Miller was a Trinitarian. This was certainly true in 1822. Yet the evidence reveals that he changed his position early into sharing the First Angel's Message. If Miller was raised to give a message to "fear God and give glory to Him" and and preached a message based on a belief in the Father and His Son, what does that tell you? Read More...

Thank you!
