    The Bible says we cannot know the time of the Lord's return (Matthew 25:13). But the Scriptures make it equally clear that we can know the season of the Lord's return (1 Thessalonians 5:2-6):"You yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night... But you brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief; for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night or darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be...

    The Mountain Retreat ^ | Unknown | Charles D. Alexander
    He who would understand the prophets had better begin with Paul's Epistle to the Galatians, where he will find that the Church is one in the Old Testament and New, and the New Testament Church is the fulfillment of all prophecy, the very last phase of God's redemptive work on earth. He will discover in Galatians who the true Israel is, to whom the promises are made and that there is no other Israel, and no further fulfillment of prophecy. The problem of the Galatian believers was the conspiracy to impose upon them Jewish interpretations of prophecy, and to claim...

    The Early Church Fathers and the Foundations of Dispensationalism Larry V. Crutchfield Professor of Early Christian History & Culture Columbia Evangelical Seminary, Longview, WA Part I—Setting the Stage: The Participants and Theological Principles in the Debate The Issue Decade after decade, dispensationalists have endured the charge by their opponents that there are no historical antecedents for their doctrine prior to John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) and the Plymouth Brethren. Millard J. Erickson, for example, asserts flatly that “No trace of this theology can be found in the early history of the church.”<![if !supportFootnotes]>[1]<![endif]> And Clarence B.

Introduction Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism are different systems of theology that have been developed to try to explain how God deals with man in the salvation process and the role of Israel and the Church in God’s plan of salvation. The role of Israel and the Church and the relationship of the Church to Israel is where the big debate centers. That is where we are headed eventually, but first we have to lay the foundation...
