    Another topic I had going the following statement was made with my following comments I thought I would make it its separate topic.
    ==================================================
    Last time I checked, the Rapture did not show up in the writings of Justinus Martyr.

    As for other aspects of Dispensationalism. Proof please!

    =============================================
    If you are looking for the word Dispensation you will not find it but you will find the concept.
    the convent view point can not be found till the 3rd century.

    A comparison of dispentional system of the Ante-Nicen Age:

    Justin Martyr (100 - 165 AD) {Dialogue with Trypho}
    Enoch / Noah (Adam to Abraham) Chap 92; cf chap 27
    Abraham (Abraham To Moses) Chap 92; cf. chap 19
    Moses (Moses to Christ) Chap 92 cf. 43
    Christ (Christ to Eternal state?) Chap 23, 43, 45
    Millennium (Seventh millenary of years) chap 81; Frag 15

    Irenaeus (120-202 AD) {Against Heresies}
    (3. 11. 8) Four Covenants (4. 9. 3)
    Adam to Noah (3. 11. 8; 4. 16. 2)
    Noah to Mose (3. 11. 8; 4. 16. 2)
    Moses to Christ (3. 11. 8; 4. 16. 2-3)
    Christ to Eternmal State? (3. 11. 8-9; 4. 9. 1-3)
    Millennium (Seventh millenary of years) (4. 16. 1; 5. 30. 4; 5. 33.2)

    Tertullian (150-225 AD)
    An Answer to the Jews
    Adam - Chaps 2, 4, 5
    Noah - Chap 2, 4
    Abraham - Chap 2-6
    Moses Chap 2-6
    Christ (More faithful worshipers) Apology Chap 21
    Millennium Apology Chap 49

    Tertullian (150-225 AD)
    Against Paxeas
    Adam - Chaps 16
    Noah - Chap 16
    Abraham - Chap 16
    Moses Chap 16
    Christ (More faithful worshipers) Ag.Marc. 3-4, 20

    Not only the above but “Victorinus of Petau” (on the Creation of the world)


    But above all Gods Word teaches it

    Johnny,

    Where exactly does the Bible teach premillenialism?

    This doctrine can be broken down into three basic parts.

    Pre - before

    millenial - 1000 years

    ism - ain't so

    In Christ,

    bmerr

    The fact that the rapture was expected at any moment. Would make it premillenial.

    Not necessarily, belief in the imminence of the end of days does not make it premillenial as amillenialist believe in the imminence of the end of days.

    Really? I see several different views of the same time period interspersed with a few interludes culminating in Christ's return and the new heaven and new earth.

    I see none of the schems prior to Nicea (325AD)
    were at all predictive of the length
    of nor the name of what we now call the
    Church Age (AKA /also known as/ Time of the Gentiles, Age of Grace, etc). And none of the
    7 churches of Revelation/7 sub-age schemas
    today is predive either. To believe that
    all 'dispensationalism' is about is these
    7 churches of Revelation = 7 sub-age schemas,
    is to Limit God's Economy (AKA: Dispensation).
    God is not limited by our bad guesses.
