Nope. Never claimed the whole doctrine rests on one passage. I’m just pointing you to this passage to give you the interpretation of the keys.
Why are you trying to dig deeper into this passage then the pure and simple interpretation of the keys?
I never claimed this was a prophecy. Just trying to define the meaning of the keys.
Why do you think this is a prophecy?
Nope never said it’s a prophecy.
There are many things the pagans did that we do as well.
I have a question for you to try and understand your view here. I will try to be specific because this is an important question.
Why would it matter if the Apostle John borrowed something rooted in pagan traditions to try and teach us something? The reason I ask is because you tend to bring up objections to scripture such as this one here when you are having difficulty working through a passage that contradicts your beliefs. I thought you believed all scripture was inspired by the Holy Spirit. So in the end wasn’t it the Holy Spirit who “borrowed” this from the pagans?
No. You are trying to dig deeper than necessary to try to find something that allows you to disprove the meaning of the keys.
Yeah I already brought that passage up. Not sure what your point here. Never said Jesus no longer holds the authority. Not sure where you are going with this.
Once again not sure why you are saying this is a prophecy. If you want to claim that Eliakim is Jesus then who is the King?
Yeah straw man argument here. Never made that claim. just trying to define the keys.
