I agree with your conclusion that the Man Child is Jesus. No doubt about that, in my mind.
I just want to know why you believe it. But, if you don't want to further explain what you base your conclusion on, that's fine.

SOME BIBLE SCHOLARS SAY THAT VERSE 5 OF CHAPTER 12 IS JESUS CHRIST.
I think it is as well.If you do not agree that is fine.
I am NOT trying to disprove Reverend Finis Jennings Dake or anyone.
I think folks can disagree on some of these things.
Spiritblade Disciple wrote:I agree that Dake was a man.
I don't think your views are solid enough to refute Dake's position based upon what you've presented, so far.
You mention scholars who say it is Christ... How do they refute Dake's reasons for thinking the Man Child is the 144,000?

I GAVE YOU MY VIEWS ABOVE.
REVELATION 12:5 IN MY VIEW IT IS THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
I HAVE CHECKED A FEW OTHER SCHOLARS WHO SAY IT IS CHRIST.
