The Lord Jesus Christ is a Dispensationalist

 

The Lord Jesus Christ is a dispensationalist.  The proof of this is in the King James Bible.  In Luke 4:18-19 the Lord Jesus Christ is reading Isaiah 61:1-2 from the Old Testament.  He stops after reading “To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.  This is in mid-sentence of Isaiah 61:2.  The Lord Jesus Christ stops here because he is a dispensationalist.  He stops reading at the end of the part about the first coming of Christ and does not read the part about the second coming of Christ.  The next part of the sentence that he does not read says “and the day of vengeance of our God”.  This is the second coming of Christ.  Jesus Christ splits the verse between the first coming of Christ and the second coming of Christ.  Jesus Christ is a dispensationalist.  I chose to follow the Lord Jesus Christ and be a dispensationalist like the Lord Jesus Christ is.

Luke 4:18 (KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
Luke 4:19 (KJV) To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Isaiah 61:1 (KJV) ¶ The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
Isaiah 61:2 (KJV) To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;

  1. I appreciate that it is a short argument, but this in particular is also a seriously weak argument as well. Dispensationalism is not the teaching that there is a Second coming – probably all Christians except full preterists believe in the second coming. Even Islam believes in a second coming. Dispensationalism is a particular view of national flesh Israel then, now and future with its own Millennial interpretation based upon that view.

    The pause is at the pouring out of the vengeance upon Gods enemies which most would see as the second coming. At the time Jesus read these words He was sent ONLY to the house of Israel and set the confines of His disciples inside Israel at that time as well. Yet even though it was subsequently to this reading of Isaiah that Gods grace extended to the Gentiles, you do not use THAT as a check mark for the Dispensation, but instead chose this reading of Isaiah?? Surely that would actually discredit Dispensationalism??

    1. We appreciate your comment about dispensationalism, even if you are against dispensationalism. First you are wrong about this being a weak argument for dispensationalism. This argument proves that the Lord Jesus Christ is a dispensationaist. Therefore, if the Lord Jesus Christ is a dispensationalist, then the Bible is a dispensational book because the author is a dispensationalist.
      That is the very point, there is a difference between the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ and the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those that believe in a first coming and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as separate events separated in time, are dispensationalists at least concerning the first and second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those that open their Bible and can see that their are two testaments in the Bible and there is a difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament, are dispensationalists at least in that they see there is a difference between the Old Testament and the New Testament. Almost everyone, if they are honest are a dispensationalist to some point.
      Your understanding of dispensationalism is shallow and bigoted at the very least. Most likely you have developed this view by spending all your time reading books about theology, like Calvinism, instead of reading the Bible. When we speak of the Bible, we mean the King James Bible without the greek and Hebrew. The King James Bible is perfect without the greek and Hebrew, given by inspiration of God and preserved by God.
      Dispensationalism is a lot more than just the differences between the church and Israel.

      2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

      Dispensationalism is the command from God to rightly divide his book, the King James Bible. There are naturally occurring divisions in the Bible. Anyone that is a Bible reader will notice these naturally occurring divisions. You have not noticed these naturally occurring divisions because you are not a Bible reader. The first naturally occurring division in the Bible is Genesis 1 to Genesis 3. This dispensation has been named the dispensation of innocence. If you will study Genesis 1 to Genesis 3 you will see that this same pattern is repeated over and over in the Bible. The pattern is that God interferes in the affairs of men. In this case he creates man. God choses a spokesman. In this case God choses Adam. God gives his spokesman some commands. In this case God tells the man not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Man fails to keep God’s commands. Then God judges man for his failure. Then God starts over with a new spokesman and new commands. You can see this with Noah and the flood. Moses and the Law. Jesus Christ and Israel in the Gospels. Paul and the church in the book of Acts and Paul’s epistles. The 144,000 and the two witnesses in the Tribulation. Jesus Christ and his millennial reign. There are right divisions in the Bible, to ignore these divisions is to reject the Bible. Also the word dispensation is a Bible word. The word dispensation occurs four times in the King James Bible. One has to be a blooming idiot to casually dismiss dispensations in the Bible.

      1 Corinthians 9:17 (KJV) For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward: but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.

      Ephesians 1:10 (KJV) That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

      Ephesians 3:2 (KJV) If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

      Colossians 1:25 (KJV) 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;

    2. Joel, it is no wander you detest dispensationalism. You use an ESV which has removed the word dispensation from your bible. You are not a Bible believer. How can we discuss what the Bible teaches when you do not believe that you can have a perfect Bible that you can hold in your hands???
