15 [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].
16 Therefore let no one sit in judgment on you in matters of food and drink, or with regard to a feast day or a New Moon or a Sabbath.
17 Such [things] are only the shadow of things that are to come, and they have only a symbolic value. But the reality (the substance, the solid fact of what is foreshadowed, the body of it) belongs to Christ
1 And the Pharisees and Sadducees came, & to test him they asked him to show them a sign from heaven.
2 He answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.'
3 And in the morning, 'It will be stormy today, for the sky is red and threatening.' You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah."
3 Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.
Revelation (Rev) 1's Four MYSTERIES:
#1 & #2 "Son of Man's": Right Hands "Angels of the Seven Churches"
Rev 1:7 Look, He's Coming with the Clouds, & every Eye will See Him even those
who Pierced Him; & all the Peoples of the Earth will Mourn because of Him
Rev 1:17-20 17 When I saw "Him", I fell at "His" Feet" as though "Dead". But "He" laid "His" Right Hand" on me, saying, "Fear not, "I Am" the "First" and the "Last", 18 and the "Living One". "I "Died", and behold "I am" Alive" Forevermore", and "I have" the "Keys" of "Death and Hades". 19 "Write" therefore: "The things that you have "Seen". "Those that "Are". And those that are to take place" "After This". 20 As for the "Mystery of the "Seven Stars" that you saw in "My" Right Hand", and the "Seven Golden" Lampstands", the "Seven Stars" are the "Angels" of the Seven Churches", and the "Seven Lampstands" are the "Seven Churches".
