PSA237 Grace Period Start to Finish mp3

The dispensation of grace started with Paul’s great proclamation in Acts 28:28. During the first two years of this dispensation, while Paul was living in his own, rented house in Rome, he wrote four books: Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon. The gospel of John was also written during this time, with the other gospels as background material. After Paul’s two years he was released and wrote I Timothy, II Timothy, and Titus. We discuss the dispensational significance of all these books. We consider that there was a “transition period” into the dispensation of grace between Acts 28:28 and the writing of II Timothy. We consider a fifth possible “dividing line” for today’s dispensation that some suggest: post Acts. Finally, we consider what God’s next move will be once the dispensation of grace comes to an end. Just how will it end, and what is next?

PSA236 What About the Body of Christ? mp3

In this message, we consider the phrase “body of Christ.” Is this truly the special name for those who are part of God’s calling today? Considering the phrase “head over…the church which is His body” in Ephesians 1:22-23. What does it mean that Christ is the “head”? What is a “body,” and what body is this referring to? What is the meaning of the word “church,” and what is God talking about when He speaks of His church? Finally, what is the church which is His body, and what is this important passage truly telling us?

PSA235 Which Dividing Line? mp3

In this message, we consider the various dispensational dividing lines different people put forward as the start of God’s work today. The knee-jerk idea of the beginning of the New Testament. The popular idea of the events at Pentecost in Acts 2. The idea of the middle of Act, at the start of Paul’s ministry or various other places. Finally, the idea that it is as the end of the book of Acts at Paul’s pronouncement at Acts 28:28. Which one of these lines fits as the start of a work where God works with all nations, wherein He works in secret, and wherein He works exclusively in grace?

PSA234 God’s Various Times mp3

In this message, we consider the various times of God’s plans for this world. From the Garden of Eden in Genesis and the start of God’s work, God worked with various men until He chose the man Abraham and his descendants, the nation of Israel. In the Gospel period, Israel continued to be at the center of God’s plans and work. In the Acts period, God continued to work with Israel. Yet in the dispensation of grace, all nations are now equal in God’s current work. In the kingdom of God yet future, Israel will again be at the center, but all nations will be blessed through them.

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

In this message, we examine the final stages of God’s future plan as outlined in Scripture, particularly in the book of Revelation. These are the thousand-year Parousia of Jesus Christ, the Little Season that follows it, and then the New Heavens and the New Earth. How is the period of Christ’s parousia different from the premillennial kingdom period that precedes it? What takes place in the Little Season? What does the ultimate period of the New Heavens and New Earth look like?

PSA231 The Revolt in Zechariah mp3

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

In this message, we consider the book of Zechariah in a brief outline. It tells us things about Zechariah’s own day, about the coming kingdom of God, but we especially consider its picture of the coming period of the revolt against the kingdom of God, which dominates the end of the book. What does it have to tell us about that coming, climactic period of time?

PSA230 Foreshadowing the Kingdom mp3

Dissecting the Kingdom and Examining Its Times and Epochs Series

In this message, we consider the book of Acts and how it foreshadows the kingdom of God to come. In how it began, in the unity that was experienced then, in the miracles that were performed, and in its triumphs over the rebellious governments of this world, the government of God in the Acts period foreshadowed that great government of God to come. Then, considering the government in Israel under Solomon as he took his reign, and how his method of taking over from his father David may foreshadow the way the kingdom of God will take over in the future and deal with those who are opposed to it.

PSA229 The Promised Son mp3

In this message, we consider the promise of the Son that was given to Adam and Eve all the way back in Genesis, and how that promise was carried through the Old Testament times on to its fulfillment in the Son being given at last in the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.

PSA228 Paul’s Two Ministries mp3

In this message, we consider that Paul, the very important agent of God who wrote so many books of the New Testament, nevertheless seems to have strange inconsistencies throughout his ministry. We believe that these are caused by the fact that Paul actually had two ministries: one before Acts 28:28 and one after. We consider the two ministries of Paul and how they differed.
