It is Biblical-dispensational truth for today. God isn’t dealing with people the same way He dealt with them as in times past, i.e., Adam & Eve, Moses, Abraham, Noah and Israel.
His instructions for people today are different.
Adam and Eve were instructed not to eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. They failed to adhere to that instruction and as a result, were driven out of the Garden of Eden. They had sinned. Genesis 2:17.
Moses was instructed by God to leave Egypt with the Israelites and return to the Promised Land. The Israelites failed in adhering to God’s commandments due to their unbelief and spent 40 years in the wilderness. Joshua 5:6.
Abraham was instructed by God to leave his homeland, Ur and he would make him the father of a great nation. Abraham failed due to his and his wife’s unbelief when he impregnated his wife’s maid-servant and she bore him a son, Ishmael who was the son of the bondwoman. Genesis 25:12. Israel was instructed by God to be the light of the world, the nations. She failed in her calling and today is lo-ammi, not God’s people. Hosea 1:9, Jeremiah 3:8, Isaiah 2:2. Isaac was born later however, and God’s plan for Man’s redemption was still in place. Genesis 35:10.
However, God hasn’t rejected Israel. Hosea 6:2. There is an allotted time in the future when God will once again deal with Israel (Jews) and refine a third of His people who will be saved. He will refine them like gold and save them. Zechariah 13:9.
Israel’s gospel has always been performance based because of her adherence to the Mosaic and Levitical law.
Since God isn’t dealing with Israel today as the light unto the nations, as she rejected her Messiah and His offer of the Kingdom – Acts 1:6, God put her Prophetic programme in abeyance – Romans 11:11-15 and initiated, began a new programme whereby Mankind could be saved, the current dispensation we live in : The Dispensation of the Grace of God. He gave Saul of Tarsus, later named Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles an entirely new set of doctrine and Gospel whereby men could be saved. This programme is currently still in effect as God will only start dealing with Israel once the tribulation starts, until then we are followers of the Apostle Paul : Acts 9:15, Romans 1:1, Ephesians 3:2, Colossians 1:25, Ephesians 1:10, 1 Corinthians 15:1-4, Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 2;16.
Currently we are not under Israel Levitical and Mosaic law – Galatians 2:16, Philippians 3:9. Our instruction for today is to believe Christ’s finished work on Calvary’s cross without the law. So far, we have failed miserably as most are adhering to the wrong gospel – Israel’s Kingdom Gospel which is performance based : Belief in Christ, confessing Christ plus adherence to the law (faith + works).
Our righteousness comes by faith alone in Christ’s finished work on the Cross alone – Galatians 2:16 and Ephesians 3:9, without the works of the law.
Our doctrine can be found in Romans to Philemon, rightly divided. If the Apostle Paul isn’t speaking to or about you, it isn’t your doctrine, because he was still evangelizing the Jews in Romans 9, 10 & 11. He wanted more than anything to see his kinsmen in the flesh saved.
Paul was a Rabbi from Tarsus in Turkey and persecuted the followers of the way – those Jews who believed in Christ according to the Prophetic programme, whose programme is currently in abeyance and which will once again resume during the tribulation period, their doctrine can be found between Hebrews and Revelation.
God never made a covenant with pagan Gentiles.
Hence the reason why the Apostle Paul’s epistles (mostly) contradict doctrine contained in Hebrews to Revelation, a good example being Romans 4 and James 2.
Confirm it yourself, read it straight from an Authorised King James Bible.
It’s the only way the Bible makes sense. What have you got to lose if all I’ve said doesn’t make sense? It’s worth looking into.
Dispensation is a Biblical word. It means : The method or” scheme according to which God carries out his purposes towards men is called a dispensation.
