๐Ÿ‘‘ Household Rules #12

โ€œWhereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of Godโ€ (Colossians 1:25).

To repeat, some people hate dispensational Bible study. Modern English Bible โ€œscholarsโ€ eliminate โ€œdispensation,โ€ therefore hiding the systemโ€™s biblical foundation. If they omit the term from Scripture, then they quite easily argue dispensationalism is false. However, while refusing to admit it, even they understand some dispensational boundaries. They know a dispensational boundary exists between an animal-sacrificing Old Testament Jew and us today. They understand animal sacrifices were Godโ€™s directions to Israel under the Law, not directions to us under Grace. They know Godโ€™s directions to Noah to build an Ark are Scripture, but not to us. Yet, they claim and follow other verses not to or about us.

Certain โ€œchurch peopleโ€ loathe dispensational Bible studyโ€”especially Pauline dispensationalismโ€”because it prevents them from ripping out of context verses from Jesusโ€™ earthly ministry and early Acts. They enjoy claiming the gifts of healing and tongues; they like the Beatitudes, Sermon on the Mount, and so-called โ€œLordโ€™s Prayer;โ€ they harp on Christโ€™s parables; they revel in water baptism, Sabbath-day keeping, and confession of sins. If they were to recognize dispensationalism as true, and apply it consistently in Scripture, then they would see only Paulโ€™s doctrine as applicable to us (todayโ€™s Scripture; cf. Ephesians 3:2).

They dislike Paul since he was not sent to water baptize (1 Corinthians 1:17); did not have the gifts of healing and tongues his entire ministry (1 Corinthians 13:8-13; 1 Timothy 5:23; 2 Timothy 4:20); did not quote the โ€œLordโ€™s Prayer,โ€ Sermon on the Mount, or Beatitudes; did not emphasize confession of sins; directly opposed forced giving/tithing (2 Corinthians 9:6,7); and outright condemned Sabbath-day keeping (Galatians 4:9-11; Colossians 2:16). Paul emphasized grace rather than works.

Dispensational Bible studyโ€”specifically, Pauline dispensationalismโ€”threatens church traditions (works-religion). They must ignore dispensational boundaries in order to keep people working and striving in church programs and denominations. In doing so, they underscore Law, thus refuting the Gospel of Grace and hindering victorious Christian living… source

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. — Psalm 100:4-5
