    No problem. You can do it right now.

    There are many that wish to dismiss Paul. If you really mean this, then never refer to him again, other than giving reference to him standing looking at, bringing on and allowing the stoning of Steven. Try it please, and see what you understand. You will understand the “law and the prophets”, and the gospel of John the Baptist. Remember, never ever quote PAUL again. Your wish will come true, being rid of Christ Jesus in heaven forever.

    I understand now why you are hyper-dispensational. You can't understand more than one thought at a time. I wrote:
    Please show me where I said that the Church was not the Body of Jesus Christ.

    Quote – “Your posts above are essentially nonsense. Form what little is understandable you appear to assert that the Body of Jesus Christ is the Church and that the Bride of Jesus Christ is Israel. If that it is your contention it is totally false.” Unquote.

    Quote – “In 2 Corinthians11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

    You call false “the Body of Jesus Christ is the Church”, and then you follow-up with “Paul is obviously talking about the Church as the Bride of Jesus Christ.” You at first say Jesus Christ is not One with the Church, then you say Paul is after all saying the Church is One with Christ.

    Is not Jesus Christ the head of the Church, and we are in that Church?

    Do you believe this gospel today? ”These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not: 6. But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7. And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Matthew 10:5-7.

    Do you believe this gospel today? ”And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 16. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; 18. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.” Mark 16:15-18. Then Peter preached the same gospel in Acts 2:37-39.

    Do you believe this gospel today? ”But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. 29. Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, 30. And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31. And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”……………………”And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7. That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. 8. For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9. Not of works, lest any man should boast.” Acts 16:28-31, and Ephesians 2:6-9.

    Those are hoarse words from one in the Body of Christ and where I also reside. I believe the One gospel of Paul as shown in my previous post. Surely that is the one you also chose. If you did, then it is the dispensational gospel that Christ gave to Paul for we today. Christian faith, ituttut

    I believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the one and only Gospel. The Apostle Paul was not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as he notes in the following Scripture:

    Romans 1:16

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

    Please note that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is for both the Jew and the Gentile.

    There is no such thing as the gospel of Paul. Those who trust in Paul for salvation will be sadly disappointed!

    The origin of some of Itututts radical views might be explained if we understand their origins, hyper- or ultra-dispensationalism.

    THE ORIGIN OF ULTRADISPENSATIONALISM [from Dispensationalist Charles Ryrie’s book Dispensationalism, page 198]

    Ultradispensationalism had its origin in the ministry and writings of Ethelbert W Bullinger (1837-1913). He received his education at Kings College, London, and was an ordained Anglican clergyman. He was the author of seventy-seven works, including the Critical Lexicon and Concordance to the Greek New Testament and the Companion Bible. He was a scholar of repute, editor for nineteen years of a monthly magazine called Things to Come, and an accomplished musician.

    His theology was a mixture. He held the heretical doctrine of the extinction of the soul between death and resurrection.silent on the final state of the lost, and many of his followers were and are annihilationists. In his sevenfold dispensational scheme Bullinger had two dispensations between Pentecost and the end of the church age. He placed the Gospels and the book of Acts under the Law and commenced the dispensation of the Church with the ministry of Paul after Acts 28:28. The prison epistles, therefore Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians—set forth the fullness of the revelation of the mystery of this church age. He also denied that water baptism and the Lords Supper are for this age.

    His dispensational teaching has been the fount of all the ultra-dispensational teachings from his day to the present. However, many ultradispensationalists do not teach soul sleep and annihilation. But almost all hold to the doctrine that the church did not begin at Pentecost but did begin with Paul (although I came across one group that believes the Body of Christ began at Pentecost even though the group does not practice water baptism or the Lords Supper).

You accuse me of stating that the Church was not the Body of Jesus Christ yet you still cannot show where I stated such. In fact in my post of uly 21, 2005 11:18 PM I quoted the Baptist Faith and Message: “The New Testament speaks also of the Church as the Body of Christ which includes all the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.”

    You also invent out of whole cloth the statement you attribute to me
    Again ituttut you show your inability to understand what you read. In fact your thought process appears to be irrational.

    </font>[/QUOTE]I repeat, there is only one Gospel, there has always been only one Gospel, There will always be only one Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    In fact Paul tells us that this same Gospel was preached to Abraham:

    Galatians 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.[/b]

    </font>[/QUOTE]I’ve been telling you in almost every post that Christ Jesus in heaven gave Paul his gospel, and that gospel is to both Jew and Gentile. But I cannot understand why you will not believe the gospel of Paul, for Paul’s gospel is not the gospel of Peter, and it is not gospel of John the Baptist, but the gospel of Christ Jesus from heaven. Do you believe Romans 2:16, ”In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to my gospel.” I believe Christ from heaven, so I determine I must understand the gospel of Paul.

    We are to no longer look for an earthly gospel. Paul’s gospel is a heavenly gospel. Jesus Christ is dead to this earth, and is alive in heaven, and that is where we are to know Him. Here is a personal word for all that Christ in heaven gave to Paul to include in Paul’s gospel. This secret is now out for Christ proclaimed it to Paul in II Corinthians 5:-16-18, ”Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17. Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 18. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation.” If this doesn’t scare you to death, then you had better reread it. For years I rejected this for nobody I knew really believed this, and said , “Oh, that is just Paul talking”. Then one day I said, “Oh, that is My Lord and Savior in heaven talking to me”. We are of the Spirit of God, and it all boils down to the Holy Spirit talking to us. Won’t you please listen to Him as He speaks to you today?

    It tells us the Old has passed away, the Old being the Law and the Prophets; as well as the preaching of John the Baptist of “the kingdom is at hand”. Those have come and gone, and they are Old. What is New? The Body of Christ of which the Christian is in. Christ Jesus is the head, and we are in that Church, both Gentile and Jew, for Christ tells us so. How? Acts 9:15, ”But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel.” Christian faith, ituttut Galatians 1:11-12

    Friend, Old Regular, please go back to where the “dispensational” gospel began, and that is with Paul. I believe some of what this man says, and some of what you say, but neither of you believe as I, so of what sin do you charge me with? You will find Paul is Super Ultra Dispensational and He warns us. Colossians 1:25-28, ”Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God; 26. Even the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: 27. To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: 28. Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ
    Jesus:”

    Poor ituttut, there is no such thing as a dispensational gospel; there is only the Gospel of Jesus Christ which the Apostle Paul calls:
    The Apostle Paul also states in Galatians 3:8 And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed.

    1Co 9:17 For if I doe this thing willingly, I haue a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the Gospel is committed vnto me.

    Eph 3:2 If ye haue heard of the dispensation of the grace of God, which is giuen me to youward:

    Eph 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulnesse of times, he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heauen, and which are on earth, euen in him:

    1Co 9:17 For if I doe this thing willingly, I haue a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the Gospel is committed vnto me.

    All of these are:

    ----------------
    G3622
    οἰκονομία
    oikonomia
    oy-kon-om-ee'-ah
    From G3623; administration (of a household or estate); specifically a (religious) “economy”: - dispensation, stewardship.
    ----------------

    oikonomia is the word from which we get
    our word ECONOMY.

    In God's economy (where the temporal
    can be seen as eternal): the lame walk,
    the poor are rich, the first are last,
    the last are first,
    the blind see, and the stupid are Einstin [​IMG]

    Dispensation(s) are just part of the
    Gospel of Jesus, the Christ, as defined in
    God's Holy Bible. [​IMG]
