Open your eyes here, my people

Editor: Whenever the doctrines of the dispensationalists are carefully scrutinized in the light of the Scriptures, you will find that the proponents are weighed in God’s balances and found wanting. I will again, for emphasis on the topic, quote from 2 Thessalonians 2 … “And for this cause GOD shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.”{{more}}

All three of their charts reveal that their dispensation of grace (their church age), begins at the end of their dispensation of law. A very bold and glaring declaration that the laws of God were abrogated at the setting up of their church, certainly not Christ’s church. Christ did not say to Peter that He will establish His church, He did say that he would build and later on it is revealed that Christ’s church was built on the foundation laid by the apostles and the prophets, Jesus Christ himself (not Peter) being the chief corner stone. Ephesians 2: 20. The prophets were mostly all before the period of the pentecostal outpouring of the Holy Spirit, yet the foundation was laid on them. The delusion is strong and it is from God, so it can only be broken by God, when in meekness we trust in the Lord with all our might and discontinue the dependence on our own understanding. This is a subtle attack on the character of God by satan, in charging God with being duplicitous; come on people ! … One standard for Jews and another for Gentiles? Exodus 12: 49 dispels this myth …” One law shall be to him that is homeborn and to the stranger that sojourneth among you.”

Thousands of years before John Nelson Darby was born, the apostle Jude wrote that these people would ‘turn the grace of God into lasciviousness.’ The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines lasciviousness as wantoness. I looked up the word wanton; it means irresponsible, licentious, and a further peep at licentious shows that it means ‘disregarding rules.’ I believe that ‘rules’ is a synonym for ‘laws’. Open your eyes here my people !

Psalms 138 : 2 testifies that ‘Thou hast magnified thy word above all thy names.’ Jesus asked some people ‘why call you me Lord and do not the things that I say?’ Luke 6:46.

Every verse in Psalms 119 pours forth praise on the law, showing light on its beauty. Several synonyms were used to represent it — precepts, word, testimonies, commandments, judgements and ordinances among others. Psalms 119: 105 refers to it this way..’ Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.’ Is it of any wonder that the prophet Isaiah would say of these people …’To the law and to the testimonies, if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them ‘?

Psalms 19 speaks of the law as perfect and goes on to say that its objective was to convert the soul. There can be no honest conversion outside of recognizing that whenever you sin, you violate the holy precepts. Read verses 7-14 for yourselves. Sometimes I feel as though we believe that God is at our mercy instead of the other way around, so preacher have to beg us to read the Bible and do God a favour.

In conclusion, Psalms 119 : 11 speaks to the work of the law in our sanctification this way: ‘Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against you.’ Paul, in his concluding verse of Romans 3, asks ‘Do we continue to make void the law through faith?’ In other words, do we disregard the law because we are saved by grace through faith? He answers this question with ‘God forbid: WE ESTABLISH THE LAW. Until next week, should the Lord allow, I bid you God’s speed.
