JESUS POKES the rebellious Fallen in the eye again this week as he sends out 72 disciples (or 70–and we discuss the difference) to witness and cast out demons. This episode was Jesus serving notice to the bene elohim that were allocated to the nations after Babel (of which, according to Deuteronomy 32:8-9, there were 72) that they were no longer welcome in Israel, which is ground holy to God.
We also discuss another reference to the Divine Council, Jesus’ warning against blaspheming the Holy Spirit, and the concept of eternal security.
Unfortunately, the original 2005 interview with Dr. Michael Heiser we referenced during the show isn’t online at the moment, but we replayed it in two parts in 2006. Click here for the show notes and the audio.
