10. No Unbelievers

The Millennial civilization begins with believers only. 
All Jewish and Gentile  unbelievers are removed through
the Baptism of Fire. The unbelieving Jews are judged
according to Malachi 3:2-5; 4:1,2 and Ezekiel 20:37, 38.
The judgment of unbelieving Gentiles is given in Matthew
25: 31--46. The word "nations" in verse 32 refers to Gentiles.

He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His
arms and carries them close to His heart.
Isa. 40:11

A Change

9. Radical Changes in Nature

First of all, mankind will be loosened from the bondage of sin
(Rom. 8:19-22). Secondly, since sin had an adverse effect on nature
(Gen. 3:17, 18),
animals will lose their ferocity, as per Isaiah 11:6-8 and 65:25. These
are the passages which say that the wolf and the lamb, the leopard and 
the kid shall lie down side by side. The child shall put his hand in the
spitting cobra's den and not be hurt. (Now , don't try it today---------
this is not the Millennium! Thirdly, plant life will abound; so for those
who like flowers, there is nothing like the Millennium (Isa. 35:1, 2,7).

The Lord will be your confidence and will keep your foot from
being snared. Prov.3:26

They Will Revolt

7. Universal Prosperity

Free enterprise will reach an all-time high during the MILLENNIUM
(PSA. 72:7, 16).

But since people become bored even in prosperity, they will revolt against
God's perfect provisions at the end of the Millennium.

8. Universal Knowledge of God

"For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover
the sea" 
(Isa. 11:9).

God blesses those whose hearts are pure, for they will see God

Universal Peace

Political Organization

The largest political organization in this country----
the National Council of Churches of America-----
is working constantly for disarmament of the United States
on the one hand and promoting the United Nations on the other.
It is absolutely tragic! The only way to prevent war is to be stronger
than the next fellow and be ready for him so that it will not be worth
while to start a war!

Now here is the situation:  there will be universal peace when Christ
returns to the earth; until then there will always be the possibility of war.
We need an administration in office that will arm us and be prepared.

Gods Grace On Our Nation

Hot And Cold Wars
Today , if people really believe the Bible, there is just one thing
for a nation to do: prepare for war! Then if it does occur, it will
hopefully be of short duration. 

The Only thing that keeps us alive is the grace of God. We would
not be here at all if it were not for (a) believers who are taking in 
Bible doctrine and witnessing; (b) missionaries who know the Lord
and are going out with the Gospel; and (c) the fact that our nation
as a whole is NOT Semitic (Gen. 12:3).

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do
not see. Heb.11:1

Continuation Of Number 6

Only  then will there be no need for strong national military forces; 
but this passage does not apply to us today. Jesus said in Matthew 

And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of war: see that ye be not troubled:
for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall
rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, 
and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears, and rescues
them from all their troubles.
Ps. 34:17

Free From Conflict

5. True Internationalism

The reign of Jesus Christ on earth will mean a universal rule of the world, 
but nations will still exist. At that point, there will finally be perfect world
government (Psa. 72; Isa. 11:1-5; Zech. 14:9).

6. Universal Peace

For the first time since  the Fall, the world will be free from conflict .
(Psa. 46:9; Hos. 2:18; Mic. 4:3).

...and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into 
pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against  nation, neither
shall they learn war any more (Isa. 2:4).

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Prov. 16:3

The Jews
are scattered today; they are under divine discipline;
 they will remain scattered. God 
promised that HE would restore them. When Christ returns
to earth, He will regather Israel (Isa. 35:3-10; Ezek. 20:34).
Only Jesus Christ can break the fifth cycle of discipline.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil, for You are with me; Your
rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
Ps. 23 :4

The Land is Challenged

3. Great Spirituality

There will be a maximum number of believers filled with the
Holy Spirit, and ecstatics will be bone fide during this period.
(Joel 2:28,29)

4. Israel Restored

Israel will be regathered universally as  a nation under  God.
Although Israel is a nation today, it is the result of man's work,
not God's. Many people are enthusiastic about the Jews going 
back to the Land, but it has no connection with Biblical prophecy.
The  small group of Jews back in the Land will be challenged until
Christ returns!

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
Phil. 4:4

The Age Of The Christ

There are twelve general characteristics 

1. Perfect environment
For one thousand years there will be perfect conditions
on the earth (Isa. 11:1-9)

2. No Religion
That is, the system whereby man by his own efforts and
merits tries to gain salvation or the approbation of God.
In order to have perfect environment, religion must be 
removed from the world. Satan is the father of religion
(John 8:44), and since he will be imprisoned for one 
thousand years (Rev. 20: 1-3), his ace trump--religion
goes with him! 

For they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they
shall mount up with wings like eagles.
Isa. 40:31

Christ the Judge--Don't stand on Your Works

4. Destruction of The Universe

This will occur as recorded in 2 Peter 3: 7--13, when
the earth, as we know it, will no longer exist.

5. The Last Judgment

A final judgment of all unbelievers following the destruction
of the earth. Jesus Christ will be the Judge, and the issue will 
be: do you stand on your own works or the work of Christ? Those
who have rejected the judgment of their sins at the Cross must accept
the justice of God at the Great White Throne (Rev.20: 11--15).

 "I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans
for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope"
Jer. 29:11

Will We Be Happier

The Principle
That improving environment solves man's problems 
is one of the basic tenets of psychology and psychiatry.
Socialism even goes so far as to say: "We will improve
your environment and you will be happy." But a 
relationship with the Person of Jesus Christ is the only
 Cast your burden on the Lord, and He will sustain you; He
will never permit the righteous to be moved.

At The End

3. The Second Advent of Satan

This takes place at the end of the one thousand years...
"he [Satan] must be loosed a little season" (Rev.20:3 )
Satan persuades the unbelievers of the Millennium to 
rebel against perfect environment and the reign of 
Jesus Christ and leads the revolt against God. This 
demonstrates that perfect environment (or even good
or better environment) is not the solution to man's 

All of God's promises have been fulfilled in Christ with a 
resounding "Yes"!
2 Cor. 1:20

The Sin Nature

So the Millennial civilization starts with believers only.
However, in the course of the repopulation of Millennial
earth, because people still possess an old sin nature, many
will become negative and eventually reject Christ as Savior.

Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!
Ps. 144:15

Believers And Unbelievers

2. The Baptism of Fire

As one of the first activities of Christ when He returns to the 
earth, He separates surviving believers from unbelievers. All
unbelievers are cast off the earth; all believers  from the Tribulation
go into the Millennium. John the Baptist prophesied concerning  this
in Matthew 3:11; the details are given in Matthew 24:36--41 and 25:31-46.

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will never 
walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
John 8:12

He Will Return

Age of Christ

The fourth and final Dispensation is the Millennium,
or the Age of Christ. For one thousand years, Christ
will rule on the earth (Rev.20:4) Oikonomos  or
 Administrator. This Dispensation is also divided into
several parts.

1. The Second Advent of Christ

When Christ returns to the earth, the Millennial Age begins.

God is love.
1 John 4:16

8. Salvation

As  in all four Dispensations, salvation is by
faith in Jesus Christ'
Act 16:31

Always Rebound and Keep Moving

Many are the plans in a person's heart, but it is the Lord's
purpose that prevails.
Prov. 19:21

Don't Lay Down

7. Filling of the Holy Spirit

The means of executing this Supernatural way of life is the filling
of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:18 commands every believer to be
filled with the Spirit; 1 John 1:9 specifies the mechanics. Under this
concept, every believer is an ambassador for Christ; therefore, every
believer is in full-time Christian service, and this does not require a
"one-shot" dedication on your part. Your full-time Christian service
may be different from someone else's because he is in a barracks ,you
are in an office; he is in a shop--- you are on a farm; he is in a home--
you are on a campus. Everyone has his own area of Christian service,
and there is actually no such thing as a "layman", unless it is a Christian
who "lays" down on his job!

Though you may stumble, you will not fall,
for the Lord upholds you with His hand.
Ps. 37:24

Our Directions

6. Supernatural Way of Life

This supersedes the Mosaic Law, which is not the way of life
for the believer today  (Rom.8:2-4). Remember that the giving 
of the Law to Moses, as well as Christ's restatement of it in 
Matthew, took place in the Age of the Jews. Neither keeping 
the Sabbath nor tithing are authorized for the Church Age.
Instead, the New Testament epistles give us the directions
for our modus operandi during the Dispensation of the Church.

 The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of God stands forever.
Isa. 40:8

5. Completed Canon of Scripture

After the first century, all divine communication was contained
in written form; today there is no revelation from God outside
the Bible. Dreams, visions, trances and voices are no longer bona
fide revelations in this Age. The best one can say for these activities
today is that they are hallucinations; at the worst, they would fall into
the category of demon possession. People who hear voices or have dreams
and think these come from God are off base---- sometimes even non compos
mentis! There is no such thing for us as extra-Biblical revelation. God  speaks
only through His Word in the postcanon  phase of the Church Age.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God's holy people.
Rev. 22:21

4. Universal Priesthood of the Believer
This priesthood is without equal. In the Old Testament, there was
no such thing as a universal priesthood among believers. Israel had
a specialized priesthood taken from the tribe of Levi,the family of
Aaron. In the Church Age, every believer is a priest; therefore, every
believer has the right of representing himself before God. The basis of
information and authorization on which you do so is Bible doctrine
communicated by a pastor--teacher. You live your own life as unto 
the Lord.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the Strength of my 
heart and my portion forever.
Ps. 73:26

 We Are studying From the  book by R.B. Thieme,Jr.

New And Unique

3. Universal Indwelling of The Holy Spirit
This too, is new and unique. No Old Testament saint was 
ever indwelt by the Holy Spirit. A few Old Testament saints
were empowered by the Spirit for the performance of special
jobs. This is called "enduement". But in the Church Age, every
believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of function.
Phase Two, the Christian way of life, is a supernatural way of life
and demands a supernatural means  of  execution which can be 
accomplished only through the filling and power of the Holy Spirit.

Guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luke 1:79

Sunday, August 7, 2016


2. Universal Indwelling of Christ
Every believer is indwelt by the Lord Jesus Christ.
This was prophesied by the Lord Jesus Christ Him-
self when He said, " in me, I in you" John 14:20.
The moment we accept Jesus Christ as Savior, we
are entered into union with Him, and Christ "dwells"
within us for the purpose of  fellowship.

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
Ps. 27:1

Friday, August 5, 2016

Spirit Baptism

God's blessings are innumerable! Spirit baptism, as
its name implies, is entirely a work of  God the 
Holy spirit, who enters the believer into a relationship 
with the Son of God and makes him a member of 
royal family forever.

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, 
your sleep will be sweet.

Unique Assets

There are eight characteristics of the Church Age
And these are the believer's unique assets:
1. Positional truth--union with Christ
This union never existed before the Church Age. 
At  the moment of salvation, God the Holy Spirit 
places every believer in union with Jesus Christ
by means of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. This 
explains why Christianity is a relationship with a
Person and not a religion. In no previous Dispensation
did the Baptism of the Spirit occur; not even the greatest
saint in the Old Testament was in union with Christ!

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you 
trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power
of the Holy Spirit.
Rom. 15:13

Rapture Or Resurrection

The Postcanon Period
From 96 A.D., with the death of the Apostle John, to the present.
The Age of the Church will terminate with the Rapture or -------
resurrection of the Church.  The way of life for Church Age 
 and the doctrines pertinent to this period are found in the New
Testament Epistles---Romans through Revelation, Chapter 3. A
picture of the Church in heaven is described in Revelation,
Chapters 4 and 5.

God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of
 power, love, and self-discipline.
2 Tim. 1:7

A Historical Development

The Precanon Period
From the day of Pentecost (about 33 A. D.) The New Testament
was in the process of being written, but was not complete. The 
Book of Acts does not present the doctrines of the Church, but
gives the historical development of the precanon period of the 
Church Age. It declares, historically, how this segment differed
from the postcanon period. For example, precanon activity was
characterized by such temporary spiritual gifts as apostleship,
healing, tongues, miracles, etc. These gifts no longer exist, and
today we have no bona fide apostles, healers, or people speaking 
in tongues.

"I have said these things to you, that in Me you may have peace.
In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

Part Of The Timetable

Age of The Church
The third part of the timetable we call Dispensations
is the Church Age. The Scripture covering this period
of time is John, Chapters 14 through 17, the Book of Act
plus the New Testament Epistles, with the exception of
certain parts that deal with the Tribulation, Second Advent
or Millennium. An example of this would be portions of
Revelation, 2 Thessalonians 2 and 1 Peter 3. This Age is
divided into two parts: precanon and postcanon .

God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can
bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide a way out.
1 Cor. 10:13
