Dispensationalism teaches God changes His ways. It is a false doctrine. God does not change or vary His ways. What was a sin in the Tanakh (Old Testament) is still a sin. What God instructed us to do and not do in the Torah (First Five Books) still applies today because God does not change. God still requires us to follow all His instructions, not just the ones we like or the ones everybody else is doing, but all His instruction.
For I am Adonai. I do not change…Malachi 3:6a TLV
…the Father of lights, with whom there is no change, nor shadow of turning.Ya‛aqoḇ (James) 1:17b TS2009
Moreover, the Eternal Glory of Israel does not lie or change His mind.1 Samuel 15:29 TLV
ForHe is not human that He should change His mind.”
Yeshua the Messiah is the same yesterday, today, and forever.Hebrews 13:8 TLV
God the Father does not change. Yeshua does only what His Father does. There is no variation in His ways. He is the same from beginning to end.
Therefore Yeshua answered them, “Amen, amen I tell you, the Son cannot do anything by Himself. He can do only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise.John 5:19 TLV
Here’s an interesting quote from vineyardjc.com:
Brad Scott then makes a most interesting observation. About the time the evolutionary theory “appeared on the scientific scene, the theory of dispensationalism rose to prominence on the religious scene. This theory,” Scott writes, “postulates that God has dealt with His people in dispensational stages over time.”http://vineyardjc.com/greek-versus-hebrew-mindset/
Most professing Christians scoff at the theory of evolution, in which the primordial soup gets struck by lightning and life begins with a single cell. Over time, this single cell evolves into something with gill slits, fins and a tail. Eventually they fall off. Over more time this creature grows different appendages: wings, then legs and arms. It begins to grunt, and over even more time, it stands erect, puts on a suite and picks up a briefcase.
So why, since most professing Christians reject the theory of evolution, do they believe the lie of dispensations? Dispensationalism teaches that God (who Scripture tells us never changes) deals with His people in different ways at different times (dispensations). Scott points out that, when laid side by side, the bogus geologic column of the evolutionists bears a striking resemblance to the church’s dispensational-column. Brad Scott explains the Christian Church’s “theological evolution” as follows:
“In the beginning, there were the primitive patriarchs floating in a worldwide flood, but soon they came to Mt. Sinai, where lightning bolts struck, energizing them with dietary laws, the Sabbaths and the Feasts. Over time the dietary laws fell off, the Sabbaths faded away, and the Feasts were transformed. They soon grew new laws, a new Sabbath, and celebrated new feasts, until at the end we see (modern) Christian man.”
Don’t just accept man’s doctrine without first examining it against scripture as a whole. Be a good Berean:
Acts 17:11 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Nowthese were more noble-minded than those in Thessalonica, because they received the message with goodwill, searching the Scriptures each day to see whether these things were true.
Guard to do every command which I command you today, that you might live…Deḇarim (Deuteronomy) 8:1a TS2009
I’m a 38-year-old father of four, married to my loving wife, Rachel. I’ve spent most of my life in one form of Ministry or another, helping plant churches, build ministries, and support ministers any way I can. I’ve also spent some time in the Arts, focusing mostly on photography and graphic arts. I grew up in the Assembly of God Christian church, went to bible college, and later found myself with a lot of unanswered questions. Then I found Messianic Judaism and now I refer to myself as Torah Observant.
