The title “Mid-Acts Dispensationalism” is a pretty big mouth full, but past the intimidating title, there are some milestones that need to be reached for one to understand the importance of the distinctions that have been made by groups that claim to “rightly divide the words of truth.”
The final distinction that we will discuss in this series is the place in which God reveals that the two participating groups (Israel & the Body of Christ) in His plan are promised and destined to obtain in the fullness of times.
Promised to receive an earthly inheritance in the kingdom.
- Heaven brought down
(1 Pet 1:4; Mat 6:10; Heb 13:14; Rev 21:2)
The Body of Christ:
Promise of an heavenly position in God’s universal dominion.
- God’s Kingdom
- Earthly are transformed and taken up
(Phil 3:20; Eph 2:6; 1 Thess 4:17)
-In the dispensation of the fullness of times both of these things will be brought together in Christ (Eph 1:10).
1.) Prophecy has been interrupted.
2.) The gospel of the kingdom is not the gospel of the grace of God
– Israel’s Church and the Church, the body of Christ, are different.
