Daniel 9:23-24 “23At the beginning of thy supplications the commandment came forth, and I am come to shew thee; for thou art greatly beloved: therefore understand the matter, and consider the vision. 24Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy”
Again we state that this is what most Christians, Bible colleges and even seminaries teach;
“That upon Jews’ rejection of the Kingdom, God withdrew the offer (or postponed the Kingdom) then introduced a 2000 years of Church history. At that very moment of rejection, God stopped the time clock for Israel, and He stopped it at the 69th week of Daniel’s 70th week prophecy. After the church has been raptured out of the earth, God will then restart the time clock for Israel, then a start of Daniel’s 70th week.
At this time, the church will already have been in heaven, enjoying the marriage supper of the Lamb.
So, they said God introduced the Church to fill the gap in His agenda, because the Kingdom was withdrawn. This supposed 2000 years of Church history is called “the great parenthesis” i.e., a kind of ‘stop gap measure’ designed to fill a space.
If the Jews rejected Jesus the first time, do we have any guarantee that He will not be rejected the second or even the third time if he comes back?
What about if he is rejected again, will God then have to invent another agenda to fill in the space?
Is God sure of what He is doing?
Could God have really changed His calendar of human redemption because the Jews’ rejected Jesus?
Is God still omniscience, since He didn’t know Israel will reject the Messiah from the very beginning or was He taken by surprise by the Jews in rejecting His offer?
Now, if the Jews had accepted Jesus as their King and so set up the Kingdom, would Jesus have had need to go to the Cross? The answer is an emphatic No!
If Jesus had not gone to the cross will there have been salvation? The answer again is No!
Are you beginning to see the implication of what these people are making us to believe?
Now listen, was it in the power of the Jews to crucify Jesus or was He delivered to them by God? Answer;
“Him (Jesus) being delivered by the DETERMINATE COUNSEL and FOREKNOWLEDGE OF GOD, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain” Acts 2:23.
So, we know, they could not have done it, except that the Father had ordained it and gave Him to them. Jesus even told Pilate when he said he had power both to crucify and release Him (Jesus). Jesus answered;
“Thou couldest have no powers at all against me, except it was given thee from above…” John 19:11.
The “above” here means a higher authority than Pilate, and that must be God.
Furthermore, Paul said, “the Lord has given Israel the spirit of slumber, eyes that should not see and ears that should not hear, unto this day…” Romans 11:8–11 (KJV)
I ask again, who is responsible for the unbelief of the Jews?
It was God Himself; so why can’t we come out of the childish notion of the postponement of God’s Kingdom, because of the unbelief of the Jews, thereby determining God’s cause on the earth?
It is about time we grow up, and stopped our religious foolishness in the name of “theology” without the wisdom of “Theo”.
If the time determined by God for Israel was 70 weeks, which is 490 years, each week being a period of “seven years” as we shall see more clearly later, if God stopped the clock at the 69th week and added 2,000 years without a connection of continuity with the original 70 weeks, how many years will you have overall? It will give us a total of 2,490 years, instead of Just 490 years as stipulated by the prophetic word to have all fulfilled.
Does this idea being taught by “men of God” in the church today, satisfy the mind of the spirit as inspired in prophecy? Can’t we see that, we are treading on a very sandy ground? May God help His people?
ARE DISPENSATIONAL TEACHERS OUR TROUBLE?
Who is truly responsible for this confusion within the Body of Christ and Why?
Were they of good intention, but just missed the reality of God’s mind, or they were merely trying to defend and protect certain opinions of men, thereby setting the whole of the Body of Christ in confusion? Will they and their adherents of today, be humble enough to accept their past misjudgment and ask for forgiveness, in order to put things right or will they want to continue on the road that leads to nowhere?
Origin: -It is a common fact that the “Theory–doctrine-of “Postponed Kingdom” was
manufactured by “dispensational” teachers who in their mind hold a “Futuristic view” of events especially of the Kingdom of God in order to have support for their confused and total erroneous beliefs.
All those who hold the “futuristic Position” of things as a belief, subscribe to a “future Rapture”, a future man of sin, a future great tribulation, a future rebuilt Temple in a physical Jerusalem in the “middle East”, a future 1000 years reign of Christ on the earth sitting on David’s throne in Jerusalem. Essentially, they centered every hope of theirs on the “Rapture” that is already
Scripture says clearly it is “through much tribulation shall we enter into the Kingdom of God” (Acts 14: 22) and “to be born of the water and spirit” (John 3:5) not through a rapture.
We are to fight and withstand on the evil day and then stand firm after fighting (Ephesians 6:13) and not to escape because of an Anti-Christ.
We have to “overcome” to reign with Christ over the nations (Revelation 2:26–27) and not to have weakling mentality and feeble knees, resulting from intimidation and fear of an Antichrist.
The Lord has prayed to the Father to have us preserved on the earth from the evils and even the evil one if you like (John 17:15,20.) and not to have us raptured out.
Will the Father answer the prayer of the Son? Sure He will!
Dear friend, let us re-examine our beliefs.
