Dispensationalism: The Span of Divine Purpose for the Ages

Tabernacle by Prophecy Watchers ChannelDispensationalism: The Span of Divine Purpose for the Ages


Bible Prophecy Scholar-Historian/Pastor, Gary Stearman is conducting a “teaching” on Dispensationalism and the Pre-Trib Rapture. As I’ve mentioned before, I do believe in the tribulation simply because the bible makes reference to it.

I’m not teaching on whether we’re currently “in” the tribulation, although tribulation does mean “trouble(s)” and that covers all of man’s time from the beginning through the end times. Yes, I do believe we are in the “end times” period though but we haven’t been raptured yet (a taking up to Heaven) and Jesus Christ hasn’t returned yet to rule the 1,000 years, although His Holy Spirit certainly has been here since the Pentecostal era in the “upper room” for the past 3,000 years.

Dispensationalism:  The divine purpose of this age and the beginning of the next.

Going from the age of the Law (the Tabernacle, a statement of Law, it has stages of courts, gates, statements of articles–through the Priesthood, the Levite) to an interlude of the Church age, to Jesus Christ–to the age of Grace (through Salvation), the Rapture of the Church, and then to the age of the Day of the Lord, 1,000 year millenium of Jesus Christ’s reign which includes the Law/the Tabernacle.

Should anyone have a dispute about Gary’s teaching, please don’t take it up with me–I’m not going to debate it.  I just say pay heed to what Gary is teaching because he has a wealth of information and wisdom.

“Law vs Grace.  This ages-old battle started long ago and reached a boiling point in the early church. Even the disciples were caught up in the confusion. Between these two points of view sits the controversial perspective of dispensational theology. You want to start a battle with extreme passion on both sides?

Well, here you go. Gary and Bob discuss a complicated chapter in the book of Acts that Gary thinks should clear up the confusion, all the while producing added proof of a pre-tribulation rapture!”

Do You Know Him?

  • And Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey His voice to let Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel go.” (Exodus 5:2)
  • My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” (John 10:27)

Pharaoh did not know the Lord–nor did he care to do so.  You and I have the free will, the choice, to follow Jesus Christ willingly.  Accept Him into your heart–acknowledge Him as your Lord and Savior.

I leave you with these words, which the Lord gave me a few moments ago:

  • “The hour is drawing nigh onto thee,” saith the Lord.  “Get ready because you don’t have much time left!”

  1. People have always been saved the same way: by faith. And, people show their faith and love for God through obedience.

    Our nation is about to lose her place because of a lack of faith and her disobedience just like ancient Israel did.

  2. There are so many ways to look at the same array of events. Of all the Clarence Larkin charts, the “Three Peaks of Prophecy” seems the most cogent to me, which spans the ages, the Bible, and the high sabbaths (holy days).

    Instead of adopting different opinions about when covenants or dispensations begin or end — it’s best to see and comprehend the presentation given to us in the arrangement of the holy days and the tabernacle, as far back as Moses.

    The point is to focus more on Christ in His various ministries revealed to us more and more through the ages, (than on the perceived promises, inheritances, bloodlines, or guarantees of special favor or divine protection for any particular group).

  3. Regarding the Jonathan Cahn video above… America is the nation created for the purpose of declaring the approaching next dispensation under the rule of Christ. It is the nation created and raised up to a high status, the purpose of which is to carry out the assignment of declaring the coming Kingdom of Christ upon the earth and to declare the Christ of that kingdom and to declare to the earth the requirement of entering that kindom… the shining city on a hill as it were. America has certainly done that and fulfilled it’s assignment. America’s existence is a sign of the soon coming close of the current dispensation called grace… and all the more so when you see it’s light beginning to fade. The nation created and tasked with this assignment is now beginning to fade, albeit by design on the part of the globalists of course. We should look at America as a huge signal from God of the rapidly closing door of time for people to obtain that grace. God has certainly been in the midst of this great land declaring himself to the entire world and the coming kingdom of Christ upon the earth for those who would take advantage of the free gift of salvation for their lost souls.

    It would appear that the dispensation of Grace is nearly over.

    • I would also just add that it is very fascinating that the tabernacle is a statement of law where God dwelt. This same tabernacle, when laid over a map of America, have some amazing patterns that emerge regarding the furniture within that tabernacle of law. We know that Christ came and fulfilled that law, thus declaring that the new law man must abide by for salvation and right standing with God is their faith in Christ. Alas, America has declared this “new law in Christ” to the nations of the earth since it’s very beginning and continues to this day, which has been it’s God given assignment all along. This can be seen in the link above. The new law is Christ for the salvation of one’s soul and nothing else. “I am the way, the truth and the life, no man can come to the father but by me” (John 14:1-7). No coincidence that you see the stunning visual pattern emerge bewtween the old law represented in the Tabernacle of Moses when laid upon the map of the Christ declaring nation of the earth… The United States of America. If effect, America has been declaring the new law of life found in Christ. A very fitting finale for the close-out of the dispensation of grace.

  4. Police Chief Simpson was a “born again Christian.” This is the live feed of his Memorial Service at the American Bank Center. Chief made a difference by his standard of behavior–a standard set by Christ.
