Scripture Reading: Acts 2:39, Romans 9:4, 15:8
In studying God's Book it is necessary to distinguish the things that differ, but it is also necessary to recognize the sweeping inter-dispensational continuity, revealing the consistency of God. Saints of all dispensations have been saved from the same thing, but not all saints of all dispensations are saved unto the same thing. The promises ncluded in the Gospel of the Circumcision may be expressed as the "Hope of Israel," whereas the promises of the Gospel of the Grace of God, revealed to Paul, primarily the Rapture, is definitely called by Paul ''The Blessed Hope."
So, in determining the realization of the earthly promises made to Israel we must learn that they will be realized only at the second coming of Christ at the end of the tribulation period, when He returns to this earth, according to prophecy.
In determining the realization of the heavenly promises made to the Body of Christ we must learn thatthey will be realized only at the Rapture of the Church before the tribulation period, when He comes in the clouds, according to the secret revealed to Paul. (Read carefully ICor. 15:51- 58). We are not bound for the promised land. The circumcision believers are. The circumcision believers are not headed for the New Heavens, but rather the New Jerusalem and the New Earth. I may visit the New Jerusalem and the New Earth in eternity, but my home, along with all saints of this dispensation, will be the New Heavens. Thanks be unto God for our calling!
