Ahh, Michael, Michael;
Dogmatism is as much an attack on truth as the cynically acerbic interrogatives into the Pharisaic takeaways of how Yeshua was described in His days on earth a couple of millennia ago.

John 10:24) Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
10:25) Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me.
10:26) But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
10:27) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
10:28) And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
10:29) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand.
10:30) I and my Father are one.

You had mentioned previously that you and your acquaintances at your former place of worship differed on what would be described as significant observances on the Deity of Christ, for reasons I can only assume stem from a lifelong hold on tightly held beliefs of both sides of the question. As much as we have discussed and such things and I have a respect for your opinion, I must defer to the over three hundred prophetic implications from the Davidic and other covenants that Yeshua does have shared traits withy the Father as being Deity; that; Yeshua IS LORD.
The Pharisees recognized that even though they did not believe Yeshua as they faced Him was HaMashiach in their own minds, they did recognize by these verses that His claim is He IS God, for which they were compelled in their own interpretation to stone Him for blasphemy. He would not be able to make that claim, being witnessed by many of the fulfillments of His Deity unless He IS who He says He is. Christianity would have failed were He not God. That is why the Adversary assaults His identity, even as He did in the 40 day temptation; even the Adversary recognized His Deity.
Now, all that being said, to the next point: the 'end times' are here. Jeremiah points to it; Zechariah is in fulfilment mode as we speak. The Jewish witness is being prepared as this is being written; the realization Israel makes in identifying the One Whom They Pierced is just behind the parting door and we are witnessing the Islamically driven provocations of Ezekiel 39 on cable. Do not think the 70 year anniversary of Israel's being birthed in a day (Isaiah 66:8) is merely coincidental. It is not.........
