From my research, it seems like you were educated as a Calvinist, and hold to some of the tenants. How does your education square with the soon-expected supernatural occurrences? My point is that most Calvinists side with Cessationist Theory from the mouth of John MacArthur. If MacArthur, and most Calvinists are correct, then we will have no defense for what you predict will soon happen. Plus, Cessationism makes your new book a moot point. As a first century Torah believer, I trust that all the gifts are still present. However, as the Gentile Church relegated the root–Judaism, the branches lost spiritual power. Regardless of your answers, may HaShem bless your work!

This is from my reading on Christ’s ascension. Remember the Angel Gabriel promised Mary that Jesus would sit on David’s throne, a point that I did argue above. Here’s an excerpt,

“The Scriptures also emphasize the present position of Christ at the right hand of the Father (Ps. 110:1; Matt. 22:44; Mark 12:36; 16:19; Luke 20:42–43; 22:69; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3–13; 8:1; 10:12; 12:2; 1 Peter 3:22). This position is obviously one of highest possible honor and involves possession of the throne without dispossession of the Father. The implication is that all glory, authority and power is shared by the Father with the Son. The throne is definitely a heavenly throne, not the Davidic throne and not an earthly throne. It is over all the universe and its creatures.

One of the constant assumptions of the postmillennial and amillennial interpreters is that the throne which Christ is now occupying is the throne of David. An examination of the New Testament discloses that not a single instance can be found where the present position of Christ is identified with David’s throne. In view of the many references to the fact that Christ is now seated at the right hand of the Father, it is inconceivable that these two positions are identical, as none of the passages cited above use the expression “throne of David” as a proper representation of the present position of Christ. If Christ is now on the throne of David, it is without any scriptural support whatever.”
