Paltalk Audios

Readers unfamiliar with dispensational truth might be surprised that there are those within the Christian community who do not simply bundle the Old Testament with Israel and all the New Testament with us believers today. Not all the Bible is about us.
Contrary to tradition, there are many Christians who do not read the records of Acts as the history of the early church, that is as any beginning of our present dispensation and calling. Not all the New Testament is about us either.

There are increasing numbers of Christians who want answers to the apparent contradictions in the New Testament. These dispensational difficulties are created by the widespread failure to distinguish things differing; failing to apply sound hermeneutics when we open and read on from Matt.1:1.

When we fail to observe the dispensation things of Israel, which continue deep into the New Testament records, we confuse ourselves as to the present set of conditions unassociated with that nation. Taking the things of Israel and transferring them to the church which is His Body is called replacement theology. Most Christians today are taught replacement theology despite the fact the words are never used. It is a false given that Christ came to start our church, and that the Acts period is the history of the early church. When Christians are taught mixed dispensational truths it is not surprising that our Christian movement is awash with every confused mix of named assemblies claiming to truly represent God’s will for us today. Replacement theology has poisoned the Christian community for 2 millennia and that which our God wants the saints to know, His wonderful purpose for us today, is obscured from them.

Acts 28 and Mid-Acts dispensationalists believe that Acts covers a period of time when God continued dealing with His people Israel who had not been cast aside at the Cross or Acts 2. Many Mid-Acts believe Israel was put aside at Acts 7 while Acts 28 believes Israel was not put aside until Acts 28.

Acts 28 and Mid-Acts (MA from here on) agree that only Paul received, by direct revelation from the Lord, the present set of conditions, The Mystery of Ephesians and Colossians. The differences are that MAs believes Paul was gradually given the present truth through the Acts period, while Acts 28 teaches that Paul taught none other things than the prophets and Moses did say should come all the way to Acts 28. After Acts 28, not before, the Lord descended and revealed the present dispensation to Paul alone. Mid-Acts, will speak of the Acts as being a transition or a progressive revelation period where Paul was slowly given more present truth (as some say he shed himself from his Jewish heritage). Acts 28 believes this progressive revelation, transition period theory confuses the writings of Paul. Acts 28 believe that Mid-Acts mix the dispensational differences in Paul by dragging the later revelation of The Mystery back into the Acts period and so confuse the beauty they have found.

Acts 28 believes that during Acts Paul was preaching the Old Testament dispensation and the redemptive grace so widely anticipated in it. This included the redemptive work of the Savior on the cross and justification by faith through grace based on it. The Old testament was the basis of the hope Paul held during that time as per Romans 15:4-13. Paul during Acts was proclaiming that Israel remained God’s people and the Gentiles were included under the terms of OT promises and prophesies.

Acts 28 believes that after the setting aside of Israel at the pronouncement of Is.6 in Acts 28:25-28, the Lord descended and revealed to Paul the present set of conditions, the dispensational truth operating today. This present dispensation was previously hid in God, Eph.3, and was indeed hid in God all the way to Acts 28 which included the NT written and written regarding that time period. Thus Paul’s letters fall into two separate and distinct dispensational groups.

These letters are not separated by date assessment but by their dispensational content. Paul’s Acts letters are full of OT dispensational truths, the post Acts letters are full of dispensational things previously unheard of. The Acts period group, Paul’s early letters, are rich in OT quotes, while the post Acts group are basically free of them. His Acts period letters are full of supernatural gifts and the Feasts which is evidence of the earthly program. Both groups will have continuing or redemptive truths but they are most assuredly different in their dispensational truths.

The first group containing dispensational truths written during Acts, the hope of which was postponed at Acts 28, the second containing the hope for today, written after Acts 28. The dispensational truths of these two groups of letters did not co-exist during the Acts period. Mid-Acts claim Paul was proclaiming both sets of truths at the same time during Acts and create more confusion than they try to resolve. Thus many MAs brethren, seeing this confusion, are seeking answers and finding resolution in the Acts 28 position.

Acts 28 does not believe all the letters of Paul are about the church which is His Body and thus MUST be rightly divided. Acts 28 believes the MAs brethren confuse dispensational truths by dragging the later ones back into the Acts period. This is the very basis of the Mid-Acts accusation that Acts 28 believes in two bodies. By wrongly dividing the Word of Truth; dragging later dispensational truth back into the Acts period, MAs has created a set of dispensational conflicts. These they need to explain away and many of their followers are less than convinced by their length explanations and their isolated use of Scripture. Wrath to the uttermost of 1Thess.2:16 is a classic example of Mid-Acts isolated eisogesis. They believe this proves Israel was nationally cast aside early in Acts whereas the context of Thessalonians proves otherwise.

The material on this page was prepared with searching Mid Acts brethren in mind.
We have met many over the years who recognize the short comings of the MA position. Such brethren will be very familiar with the subject headings of the audios below which audios directly expose the arguments the MAs teachers use to explain their mixing of Paul. It is our prayer that those with mid-Acts persuasions are willing to consider the Scriptures presented here showing where such a position fails.

The Material on this page will also benefit Christians who see the contradictions in the New Testament the traditional view has created.

These audio lessons given over the internet are of varying listening quality. Some are impromptu with interruptions and comments to folks. The listener is reminded to search and see if these things are so.

No.

SYNOPSIS

1.


Paul’s Gospel by revelation in Acts does not include the dispensational truths of Ephesians and Colossians. There’s no proof of any progressive revelation:
Paul’s Gospel in Acts 9 & 13 - Part 1  2 
Paul’s Gospel in Galatians by revelation Part.1 2


Justification by Faith through grace (Is. 53:11) is not the beginning of a progressive revelation culminating in the Mystery of Ephesians 3. Acts is not a transition: 
Part -1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8



Paul’s gospel given by revelation in Galatians 1 related to Acts 9 and 13. Paul’s message from Galatians through Romans to Acts 28 is the same, no change, nothing new, all OT testimony.
