The Reformers incomplete revolution VI. REFORMED THEOLOGY TODAY VII. Dispensationalism & the completed revolution VIII. Looking back 500 years later William Hendriksen WM. Hendriksen Baker Book House 1967 Chapter 9 - p.174 The expression a time, and times, and half a time occurs first in the book of Daniel 7:25;

12:7. It is the period of the antichrist. Now, John emphasizes the fact that the spirit of the antichrist is in the world already, 1 John 4:3. Hence, in the Apocalypse this period of three years and a half refers to the entire gospel age. William Hendriksen WM. Hendriksen Baker Book House 1967 Chapter 14 - p.226 Hence, in close harmony with all these Scriptural passages and our exegesis must always be based upon the authority

of Scripture! we conclude that also here in Rev. 20:1-3 the binding of Satan and the fact that he is hurled into the abyss to remain there for a thousand years indicates that throughout this present Gospel Age, which begins with Christs first coming and extends nearly to the second coming, the devils influence on earth is curtailed so that he is unable to prevent the extension of the church among the nations by the means of an active missionary program. During this entire period he is prevented from causing the nations the world in general to destroy the church as a mighty missionary institution.

Bernard, Ramm, Protestant Biblical Interpretation (Boston: W.A. Wilde, 1956), 89-92. Charles Ryrie Dispensationalism (Chicago: Moody Press, 1965), 86. Literal interpretation might also be called plain interpretation so that no one receives the mistaken notion that the literal principle rules out figures of speech.

E.W. Bullinger (18371913) Galatians 4:24 This is allegorically speaking, for these women are two covenants: one proceeding from Mount Sinai bearing children who are to be slaves; she is Hagar. Revelation 11:8

And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. David L. Cooper The Worlds Greatest Library Graphically Illustrated (Los Angeles: Biblical Research Society, 1970), 11. When the plain sense of Scripture

makes common sense, seek no other sense; therefore, take every word at its primary, ordinary, usual, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context, studied in light of related passages and axiomatic and fundamental truths, indicate clearly otherwise. Horatius Bonar (A.D. 18081889) Quoted in Charles L. Feinberg, Millennialism: The Two Major

Views (Winona Lake, IN: BMH, 1985), 47-48. Probably as valuable a testimony as any that could be offered was given by Dr. Horatius Bonar. When speaking of the results of fifty years of the study of prophecy, he concluded with the statement that first of all, he had gained assurance as to the authority and inspiration of the Scriptures. Secondly, he felt more certain than ever that the literal interpretation of the Word is the best. Said he: literal if possible,' is, I believe the only maxim that will carry you right through the Word of God from Genesis to

Revelation." VII. Dispensationalism & the Completed Revolution B. Dispensational movement 1. 19th century 2. Reformers hermeneutic 3. Applied to the whole bible 4.

Evidence of Abrahamic Covenants Unconditional Nature I. ANE covenant ratification ceremony (Gen 15) II. Lack of stated conditions for Israels obedience (Gen 15)

III. Covenant's eternality (Gen 17:7, 13, 19; Ps. 90:2) IV. Covenant's immutability (Heb 6:13-18; Mal. 3:6) V. Trans-generational reaffirmation despite perpetual national disobedience (Jer 31:35-37) Walvoord, The Millennial Kingdom, 149-52

III. Jerusalem not conquered in Joshuas day (Josh 15:63; 2 Sam 5) IV. Solomons reign extended to the border of Egypt (1 Kgs. 4:21) and not the River of Egypt (Gen. 15:18) V.

Solomons reign was tributary only (1 Kgs. 4:21) VI. Forever? (Gen 17:7-8, 13, 19) VII. Reaffirmation of land promises long after Joshua and Solomons time (Amos 9:11-15)

experiments 6. Key dispensational leaders Distinctives of Covenantism I. A system of interpreting the Scriptures on the basis of two covenants: the covenant of works and the covenant of grace. Some add the covenant of redemption. II. Importance of grace In every age, believers

are always saved by grace. III. Gods primary purpose on earth is redemptive. IV. Partial allegorical system of hermeneutics Distinctives of Covenantism I. Covenant of Works God entered into a covenant with Adam as the federal head of the human race in which He promised eternal life for obedience and eternal death for disobedience. II. Covenant of Redemption A covenant made between God the Father and God the Son in

eternity past in which they covenanted together for the redemption of the human race. III. Covenant of Grace A covenant made by God with the elect in which He provides salvation to the elect sinner. Implied vs. Exegetical Covenants this statement [Covenant of Grace] does not rest upon any express declaration of the Scriptures[and] although the word covenant [as in works] is not used in

Genesis, and does not elsewhere, in any clear passage, occur in reference to the transaction there recorded,it is plain that the Bible does represent the arrangement made with Adam as a truly federal transaction. Hodge, Systematic Theology, 2:117 Dispensational Theology is a System of Theology

Traditional-normative dispensational theology is a system that embodies three essential, fundamental concepts called the sine qua non (lit. without which is not): 1. The consistent use of a plain, normal, literal, grammatical-historical method of interpretation; 2. Which reveals that the Church is distinct from Israel; 3. Gods overall purpose is to bring glory to Himself (Eph. 1:6, 12, 14). Dr. Charles Ryrie, Dispensationalism, pp. 38-41 Doxological Purpose

A. Gods ultimate purpose for the ages is to glorify Himself. Scripture is not human-centered, as though salvation were the principle point, but God-centered, because His glory is at the center. B. The glory of God is the primary principle that unifies all dispensations, the program of salvation being just one of the means by which God glorifies Himself. Each successive revelation of Gods plan for the ages, as well as His dealing with the elect, non-elect, angels, and nations all manifest His glory. Dictionary of Premillennial Theology, Charles Ryrie, p. 94

Lewis Sperry Chafer (18711952) If the first 69 weeks were fulfilled literally then the remaining week will be fulfilled literally.

Sir Robert Anderson The Coming Prince, p.147-148 There is not a single prophecy, of which the fulfillment is recorded in Scripture, that was not realized with absolute accuracy, and in every detail; and it is wholly unjustifiable to assume that a new system of fulfillment was inaugurated after the sacred canon closed Literalness of fulfillment may therefore be accepted as an axiom to guide us in the

study of prophecy. Dispensationalism Advocates Key Dispensational Commentators A. John Nelson Darby (18001882) B. Sir Robert Anderson (18411918) C. Cyrus Ingerson Scofield (18431921) D. William Eugene Blackstone (18411935) E. Henry Allen Ironside (18761951) F. Lewis Sperry Chafer (18711952)
