And Elijah did come. But did it really say that after Elijah comes, there will be a dreadful day right after?

But wouldn't Elijah warn about the coming of the dreadful day?

Just because God makes it with the house of Israel does not mean that he did not include others. After all, we see in the New Testament, the term 'Jew' is referred to those who accept Jesus Christ as their Savior and YHWH as their God. Another explanation would be that God made it for the Jews first and later the Gentiles. The Jews were entrusted for building the Church and the Gentiles are the branches that are grafted in.

That's in the New Testament which Jews call a false book. Look again at verse 33:

33 "This is the covenant I will make with the house of Israel
after that time," declares the LORD.
"I will put my law in their minds
and write it on their hearts.
I will be their God,
and they will be my people.

It says the covenant will be with the house of Israel. God also says that they will have the same law. And finally he says that they will be his people, which doesn't include the gentiles.

Not necessarily. Paul says that we cannot trust our salvation on following the Law. The same commandments apply to the Christians as to the Jews minus the ceremonial laws.

Here are the Ten Commandments:

1. You shall not worship any other god but YHWH.

2. You shall not make a graven image.

3. You shall not take the name of YHWH in vain.

4. You shall not break the Sabbath.

5. You shall not dishonor your parents.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery .

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not commit perjury.

10. You shall not covet.

So Servant of Christ which ones do you follow.

Jesus means the "LORD saves". But Jesus will be called Mighty God and Prince of Peace. The Everlasting Father and the Wonderful Counselor are both in him.

When will he be called those names?

Go ahead, show me how it does. Somehow I think that you will use verses that have already been explained.

So Servant of Christ when was Jesus born:

1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him." Matthew 2:1

1In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. 2(This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) 3And everyone went to his own town to register. Luke 2:1

Quirinius became governer of Syria in 6 CE, ten years after king Herod's death.

This is one of the many contradictions in the New Testament.
