[1] Randall Price. 1999. pp 35-44: The question is not 'are prophecies regarding the future temple(s) to be interpreted literally or figuartively or both?' but 'which passages refer to a physical future temple, who will build it and when, and which passages are analogies based on a heavenly archetype or model for the visible temple(s).' The most explicit references are Isaiah 2, Hezekiel 40-48, Daniel, Haggai 2, Zacharia 8-14 and Malachi . See R. Price for a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of these topics.

To have wisdom we need to ltsein to wise advice (Pro 11:14). Zeal without discernment (better translation than knowledge) is not a good thing. (Rom 10:2)I prefer to think that God was counseling and warning Paul so he could avoid the hardship. That what the gifts of the Holy Spirit are for.I have seen many people today that have set their heart to do something for God, and did not ltsein to wise advice on how to go about doing it. So, they paid for lack of wisdom, and often even failed. I was talking with Liliane and he was sharing how Joseph was very attentive to God's direction. He took God’s warnings seriously. He did not need any repetition. That is why he was chosen to be baby Jesus' protector.Looking at Jesus' ministry, He was always able to avoid the attacks of the Pharisees without being affected. Only at the end, He accepted what was clearly the will of God for Him. And even in that case he asked God three times if that was the time. He paid the price for us, so that we can enjoy the benefits. On the other hand, Paul always got in trouble wherever he went. It was his personality: extremely bright, zealous, opinionated and argumentative. The warnings were repeated: don't go to Jerusalem. They were not trying to stop him to go to Rome. But Paul had set his heart to follow his plan of action without considering any possible change. That does not mean that God did not want him to go to Rome. He could have gone as a free man. God used Paul anyway. Paul had great, wonderful revelations about the Gospel, but he was not infallible in his decisions. Paul’s revelations were from the Holy Spirit. Some of his decisions were not. For example, at the beginning of his ministry he created so many problems that by night they had to lower him in a basket through an opening of the wall. (Acts 9:22-25) That was not enough, he continued to debate and to create conflict so that the brethren took him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus. Only then the church in Judea, Galilee and Samaria enjoyed a time of peace. It was strengthened and encouraged by the Holy Spirit and it grew in numbers, living in the fear of God (Acts 9:28-31). It is so easy for us to think that because somebody is in the Bible or because somebody is zealous, he/she must be doing what it is right. The only one always right is Jesus. All the other ones are men and women just like you and me. We must always use discernment. I greatly admire Paul, but consider how different was John the apostle! How different were their messages. How different were their lives. We need both their ministry, and their comparison reveals the results of some valuable principles we can use in our life and ministry.
