What's the difference – and why should I care?

      We who are mid-Acts Pauline dispensational 1769 King James Bible-believers know that miracles have ceased in this dispensation because anything meriting God's intervention would preclude this being the dispensation of grace.

       Louis Sperry Chafer had it right back in 1922 when he wrote in Grace, the Glorious Theme that there are three principles which cannot co-exist with grace:  FIRST, Any Recognition of Human Guilt  (all have sinned) SECOND, Any Recognition of Human Obligation  THIRD, Any Recognition of Human Merit  (all have sinned)

      When non- and anti-dispensationalists encounter passages that strain their credulity, their instincts are to cast doubt upon such verses since similar miracles are not happening now.  We saw that with Mark 16:9-20, and then there is this:

       John 5:3-4  In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.

        When you cast aspersions on those two verses or remove them from the text, a new problem appears:

        John 5:7  The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me.

       Verse seven requires verses four and five for context, yet none of the textual critics or new versions have a problem with the seventh verse, probably because no miracle is mentioned in that verse.  

       Perhaps the first few times you read here that the Modern Bibles and textual critics have agenda items which they advance.  In their sights are 1.) the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ  2.) miracles 3.) God's physical intervention 4.) anything supernatural.

       Greekers, Bible-correctors (which run rampant in the 'grace' movement) and Modern Bible advocates are guilty of leading the march toward liberal theology.

Dear Bro Terry and Sis Carol,

Thank you again for your letters to us and for your lessons on the website as well. The one most recent about "when work is populated with unbelievers" is the one I am currently enjoying and being edified with. Our group has grown slightly again…We are pressing on for the Lord down here… thank you.

We thank the two of you for your faithful work as you endeavor to see souls saved and saints edified.  Would that we had a many, many more just like you.

1 Timothy 3:16  And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.

Ephesians 3:9  And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery

Today's McNuggett: They call this the 'grace movement,' but rather than moving, the 'powers that be' have kept it running in place for decades. BBB, GBF, BDTLB, and the rest of them haven't had an original thought since Ike was President.
