Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth: Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
THE LORD'S NAME AT THE TEMPLE FOREVER
Some prophecy appears at first look to be contradictory. When one digs deeper into prophecy, one realizes that God sees the beginning from the end. We only see one percent of His plan, if we live to a full age. This thread states His name will be at the temple forever. This is a literal truth: First at Solomon’s temple, in the future there will be a new temple bearing His name for a 1,000 years, after that God and Jesus will rule from Jerusalem, forever, as the temple.
