    • I interpret it  in the light of the context in which those verses appear.   Using this as a prooftext to make the case that the Sabbath is a requirement for all humanity really doesn't fit the point that Jesus is making.  They were not arguing over whether or not the Sabbath was for all of humanity and who was required to observe it.  That is not even on the radar.   Jesus isn't defending Sabbath observance.   He and his disciples were accused of violating the Sabbath.   Jesus didn't correct his accusers in the substance of their accusation; He defended their violation of the Sabbath Day regulations.   He did not defend Himself by arguing that picking off the grains of wheat was not a Sabbath violation.   Rather, Jesus' response was point out the fact that David took the shew bread that was unlawful for him to have, much less eat back in I Sam. 21. What is important in that passage (vv. 23-28)  is that Jesus is calling Himself  "The Son of Man,"  which is a Messianic title drawn from Daniel 7:13-14.  It is the 2nd in Mark that Jesus has referred to himself by that title.    And what's more is that He is claiming Lordship over the Sabbath, which would have been rather incendiary to his opponents. Jesus' point was that the Sabbath was meant to be a day of blessing and that Sabbath observance was not to become a burden.   Jesus made this case numerous times.   It's why Jesus violated the Sabbath numerous times by healing and doing good on the Sabbath ,and His violations of the Sabbath actually brought the joy and peace that were supposed to be the features of the Sabbath day.   The Sabbath serves man; man does not serve the Sabbath.  Jesus shows this in Mark 3 and the man whom Jesus healed on the Sabbath from a withered arm. It is lawful to violate the Sabbath Day rest to do good to others. Jesus was proclaiming Himself to be Lord of the Sabbath, He was proclaiming himself to be greater than the Sabbath, thus greater than Moses and this was a declaration that was tantamount to Him establishing His deity, as only God can really be Lord of the Sabbath.
    • That is a load of questions and I would like an answer to all of them.....
    • Revelation Man If you want to bring forth your point of view, you have to be patient with others.  What seems obvious to you is the popular teaching amongst the churches here today. They all say we are the bride of Christ. You are only repeating the doctrines that are already laid out, not me.  You see me as being contrary to every thing, or deceived, that's fine,.... in your opinion I must belong to some church, or have been taught by them.  You are wrong. What if I was to tell you that God is very angry with the churches today?  Would you believe me?  He said their foundations are made with untempered mortar.  Their foundation is not solid, not built on truth.  We have to make sure our foundations are built on truth.  One way to test this is to look at the scriptures provided for us and put it all together.  Strangers have entered God's sanctuary.  The uncircumsized of heart have taken over.  And God sees inside the heart.  Babylon has set a trap.  She has kept the flock from finding all the treasures.  She has provided many so called Ministers of God to lure many away, keeping them in captivity thinking they are free, feeding the flcok with fairy floss and all things sweet, leaving them totally unprepared for what is to come. The scriptures are written in black and white and cannot be changed to suit.  If the angel says "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife", and then he shows the Holy City coming down, full of God's glory, then that's the bride...simple. What don't you understand?  It's written right there in front of you and you still reject it?  Are you really interested in the Word of God?  Does this not hold proof for you? You see it as "my interpretation".  It's not my interpretation, it's the angel's.   Revelation 21:9   And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.

        Revelation 21:10   And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
            Well that's the way it should go.  Be corrected when in error.  We have all gone through that.  You are speaking of pride now not even realising you still hold on to it, because it's your way or the highway.  I am showing you something in scripture, and I didn't write the scriptures.  I hope you don't get too angry, and yes I want to stir you up so you can go back and really look at it.  Sorry for changing the subject of this thread, but I am only addressing something you stated in one of your replies.  I hope you can just slow down a little and be more patient with me, because not only you, but I also love the truth.

      Riches for the Laodiceans, October 27
      I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. Revelation 3:18.
      The message to the Laodicean church is applicable to all who have had great light and many opportunities, and yet have not appreciated them.
      There are a large number of professing Christians who do not really follow Jesus. They do not bear the cross by proper self-denial and self-sacrifice. Although making a great profession of being earnest Christians, they weave into the fabric of their character so many of the threads of their own imperfections that the beautiful pattern is spoiled. Of them Christ says: “You boast of being rich and increased with supposed spiritual attainments. In reality you are neither cold nor hot, but are filled with vain conceit. Unless converted, you cannot be saved; for you would mar heaven with your unsanctified wisdom. I cannot endorse your spirit and your work. You do not act according to the divine Example. You are following a pattern merely of your own invention. Because you are lukewarm, I must spue you out of My mouth.”
      The True Witness has said, “Buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear.”
      Jesus is going from door to door, standing in front of every soul temple, proclaiming, “I stand at the door, and knock.” As a heavenly merchantman, He opens His treasures.... “Open your doors,” says the great Merchantman, the possessor of spiritual riches, “and transact your business with Me. It is I, your Redeemer, who counsels you to buy of Me.”
      The counsel of the True Witness is full of encouragement and comfort. The churches may yet obtain the gold of truth, faith, and love, and be rich in heavenly treasure.
