One Ring to rule them all and in the darkness bind them
We have the premillennial ring
The dispensational ring
The millennial ring
The amillennial ring
And a few other rings that don't ring a bell right now - however, they are all ruled by the One Ring - the future ring.
Col 2:17 KJV) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Yet the shadows are back.
When they claim a future restoration of national Israel they change the shadow into the substance while rejecting the work of Christ.
(Col 2:13 KJV) And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
(Col 2:14 KJV) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
(Col 2:15 KJV) And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.
(Col 2:16 KJV) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
(Col 2:17 KJV) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
Israel's physical things were shadows of the spiritual in Christ.
The shadows disappeared in the destruction of the temple in 70AD and the waxing old of the Mosaic covenant.
Israel's physical things (priesthood, temple, sacrifices, feasts and laws) were shadows of the spiritual in Christ.
(Heb 8:13 KJV) In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
Those attempting to keep the Law have failed to understand it's purpose:
(Rom 5:20 KJV) Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound..
Paul stated that the Law is the "ministration of death:
(2 Cor 3:7 KJV) But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:
(2 Cor 3:8 KJV) How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?
The ministration of the spirit has replaced the ministration of death which was done away with the destruction of the temple in 70AD.
People promoting the law are proclaiming themselves bigamists and adulterers by claiming to be married to both Christ and Moses:
(Rom 7:3 KJV) So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
(Rom 7:4 KJV) Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
Not only are they bigamists and adulterers they are claiming that the Law gives life rather than death:
(Rom 7:10 KJV) And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
So these Lawyers, Feast and sabbath Keepers are all claiming contrary to scripture that their practices give life rather death.
They have aligned themselves with the dead aka the 1st century children of Agar:
(Gal 4:22 KJV) For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.
(Gal 4:23 KJV) But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.
(Gal 4:24 KJV) Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.
(Gal 4:25 KJV) For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.
(Gal 4:30 KJV) Nevertheless what saith the scripture? Cast out the bondwoman and her son: for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the freewoman.
