The Gospel Of Peace And Joy

The modern dispensational attempt to place some material difference between the New Testament expressions “kingdom of heaven” and “kingdom of God” is both artificial and downright deceitful, as our article in the last edition of this newsletter “What Is the Kingdom Of Heaven?” clearly proves.

The reason that this distinction was being made by old cadger late nineteenth century hyper-Calvinistic “Darbyite” theorists in the first place, friends, was to allow for the reading of the ulterior preconceptions of Sir Robert Anderson’s theory of interpreting Daniel’s prophecy of the Seventy Weeks into the New Testament. (Just a bit of logical historical “unraveling” being done here for our benefit, friends, in-depth historical research reveals this kind of stuff, it’s part of our unique ability to penetrate, where others remain surfacely buffaloed.)

The big problem is that Sir Robert Anderson’s theory of interpreting Daniel’s prophecy of the Seventy Weeks was wrong, and thus, its distinctives do not “fit” naturally or easily with a plain, literal, common sense understanding of the New Testament, either. The purpose of our ministry, then, is to help friends see through this SCAM, get over the distortions of truth embedded in modern popular dispensational false teachings, and begin to understand the true meaning of the New Testament, relative to its central emphasis on the coming and establishment of the promised Old Testament messianic kingdom on earth at the time of Christ’s first advent.

That promised Old Testament messianic kingdom established on earth at the time of Christ’s first advent is a kingdom of redemption, defined as “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost” (Rom. 14:17). Righteousness means holiness. Peace and joy are the results of being made holy in heart and life through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. And this is a universal gospel for all mankind, including racial Jews, as well.

Many professed Christians today falsely think that we have to wait for some future millennial age to have righteousness, peace, and joy on earth. These deceived folks, obviously, do not understand very well the true nature of the Christian message. We must conclude that dispensationalists have a truncated understanding of the gospel. Daniel Steele described it as “antinomianism.”

Wow! Is this for real, or what?
