Doctrine of Dispensations.
The Dispensation of Promise.
True freedom found in the promises of God.
062616

We have begun to look at the life of Abraham and the important aspects related to our next dispensation, the Dispensation of promise. This is very interesting because Abraham was born and raised at a place called the Ur of The Chaldees. Ur of the Chaldees was a very well popular place in the ancient world because it was known as the center of worshipper of the moon God, who was called by many Allah. And this being independence day, this fourth of July, this day is really identified by one word - “Freedom” where we have the right of free speech.

Freedom of course is major principle in the Christian way of life. Freedom includes authority. Remember the important principle that freedom without authority is anarchy and authority without freedom is tyranny. If people are free but don’t respect authority is leads to anarchy which is lawlessness and rebellion, and so there may be freedom but it is out of control. On the other hand, if you have authority but do not have freedom then you have tyranny which is oppression, cruelty and dictatorship.

The key is to have balance which is what our nation was founded upon. Pro 11:1. A false balance is an abomination to the Lord, But a just weight is His delight. The key to our nation’s greatness in freedom began in the beginning of the birth of this great nation because it was based passages found in the word of God. For example, Psa 119:45, “And I will seek freedom, for I seek Your doctrines, O God.” Joh 8:32, “and you shall know the doctrine, and the doctrine [truth] shall make you free.” Or look at Gal 5:1, It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. And then there’s the balance in Gal 5:13, For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

So the great issue and blessings that we should be celebrating today is our freedom. Just as freedom is the heritage of physical birth, so spiritual freedom is the heritage of the new birth or regeneration.

2Co 3:17-18, “Now the Lord is the Spirit [God the Holy Spirit is deity], and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. But we all, with an unveiled face looking into a mirror to produce a reflection of the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into that same image from glory to glory, as it were from the Spirit of the Lord.”

Notice how important it is to see the relationship between true natural and spiritual freedom with the word of God. Without God’s word, there is really no true freedom. This is what Abraham had to learn and why he had to separate from moon-god worship which violates true freedom. For when you have teachings that violate other people’s freedom, you have bondage, guilt and condemnation. One of the major principles that we should celebrate and major characteristics of true freedom is that we are free to say what we believe without fear of retaliation.

an as I mentioned on Friday evening, when you have verses that teach lies like it is godly or to:

The teachings of the moon-god or Allah or the Muslim religion today is based upon destroying the promises that God made to the Jews beginning with His promises to Abraham. Ever since God promised that He would send the Messiah into the world, in Gen 3:15, when He said And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed [Satan’s seed is represented by the Adamic nature, Joh 8:44] and (I will put enmity between) her seed; a reference to the Lord at the point of his incarnation or the virgin birth He (the seed of the woman) shall bruise you on the head literally crush the head of Satan (i.e., operation footstool) And you [Satan] shall bruise him on the heel, a reference to the Cross. Ever since this promise was given to mankind, Satan tried to destroy the Lord Jesus Christ and now is trying to destroy one of His royal families.

Remember that Jesus Christ has three royal titles or three royal families. His first royal title is “Son of God.” The members of His royal family are God the Father and God the Holy Spirit with whom He has eternal and infinite coexistence, Satan tried to destroy that Royal title and that Royal family in Eze 28:15, Isa 14:12-14. And of course he failed.

Then because of the virgin birth, our Lord was born Jewish royalty. The virgin birth introduced the humanity of Christ into the world, at which point Jesus Christ became Jewish royalty. Therefore, His second royal title is “Son of David,” and His royal family is the dynasty or the house of David. As Jewish royalty, our Lord will fulfill the Davidic covenant or the promises that He made to David at the Second Advent. The Davidic Covenant says that the seed of the woman, the humanity of Christ, will descend from the tribe of Judah through the family of David, 2Sa 7:8‑17; Psa 89:20‑37, and that He would rule upon the throne of Jerusalem. Just like Satan tried to destroy our Lord’s first Royal title and first Royal family, he is trying to do that today.

Then By virtue of His strategic victory on the Cross, our Lord received His third royal title: “King of kings, Lord of lords, the Bright Morning Star.” Rev 19:12-16. Therefore, a third royal family had to be formed. So, God the Father interrupted the dispensation of Israel and inserted the Church-age for the calling out (formation, election) of a royal family to accompany our Lord’s third royal title. Satan still tries to destroy this royal family but even he must realize now that that is a lost cause.....though he does succeed at times in causing division but as our Lord’s word teaches --- Gen 50:20; Deu 23:5; Isa 54:17, and 1Co 11:19, “For there must also be factions among you, in order that those who are approved may have become evident among you.”

Luk 17:1, And He said to His disciples, “It is inevitable that stumbling blocks should come, but woe to him through whom they come!

Speaking to pastors the apostle Paul warns us in Act 20:30 and from among your own selves men will arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them.” In Gal 5:19-20, Paul writes, Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, and things like these, of which I forewarn you just as I have forewarned you that those who practice such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Tit 3:10-11, Reject a factious [divisive] man after a first and second warning, knowing that such a man is perverted and is sinning, being self‑condemned.

2Co 13:5-8, Test yourselves to see if you are in the faith; examine yourselves! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you ‑ unless indeed you fail the test? But I trust that you will realize that we ourselves do not fail the test. Now we pray to God that you do no wrong; not that we ourselves may appear approved, but that you may do what is right, even though we should appear unapproved. For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth.

The Church has been around for almost 2,000 years and already has enough winner believers in this dispensation throughout the ages to add another nail to the coffin of Satan and the fallen angels in the historical phase of the angelic conflict.

Therefore, Satan has only one royal title and one royal family to try and destroy our Lord’s second royal title, “Son of David,” and His royal family, the dynasty of David, true Israel. Satan failed and will fail in this objective. Now, remember that the first satanic attack on Christ becoming true humanity was when Cain murdered Abel in Gen 4, which was a satanic attack on Adam’s seed. It was an attack on the first promise given to Adam after he sinned. The promise was the fact that God the Father would provide the Savior from Adam’s seed, who would come through the woman as the child-bearer. Again the importance of knowing your enemy.

In Gen 4:8, Abel didn’t realize that Cain had been motivated by Satan to kill him, And it came about when they were in the field, that Cain rose up against Abel his brother and killed him. So, in that first generation, Satan inspired Cain to murder Abel, a believer. However, in Gen 4:25, the line continued on through Seth, Satan realized that murder wouldn’t work to cut off the line.

Gen 4:25, And Adam had relations [sex] with his wife again; and she gave birth to a son, and named him Seth, for, she said, “God has appointed me another offspring in place of Abel; for Cain killed him.”

Now, Satan began to see that because the human race was just getting started you can’t use murder to cut off the line...not at this time. And therefore because Satan has millions of angels under his command, Rev 5:11, 12:4, certain ones were delegated to frustrate the possibility of the Lord Jesus ever becoming true humanity to fulfill this prophecy. So he said, what we need to do is to destroy true humanity. Therefore, in an attempt to destroy all true humanity, fallen angels invaded earth and copulated with females, producing half-angel half-human beings, documented in Gen 6:1-6.

Satan was hoping that that would wipe out the promise of Jesus Christ coming into the world as true humanity. However, because of Noah and his family, that satanic attack was also frustrated because on the ark was Noah’s son Shem, and in Luk 3:36, our Lord would descend from the line of Shem. What does all of this have to do with the satanic deception behind the attacks upon America? It has to do with Israel and the Jews because since the Jews are a part of the center of the angelic conflict, there is great Satanic motivation and opposition against the Jews, not only in the Middle East, but scattered throughout the world.

So, it’s important to “know” who our enemy really is. And by the way it is not only the Arabs or the Muslims or the those involved in Islam, that are ones causing all the problems, 1Pe 5:8, Your adversary, the devil, who prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Now, in the Qur’an, instead of having, Eph, Col, Phil, Phi, or the Gospels every one of their chapters is called Surah, so when I quote a verse called Surah, I am quoting a chapter in the Qur’an of which there are a total of 114 chapters. Now, without you thinking I am being judgmental, how much clearer you get when in their own Bible, the Muslims say in Surah 5:51, O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.

In Surah 2:111,Any who say: “None shall enter Paradise unless he be a Jew or a Christian.” Those are their (vain) desires.

How else can you interpret that?

In Surah 2:113,The Jews say: “The Christians have naught (to stand) upon; and the Christians say: “The Jews have naught (To stand) upon.” Yet they (Profess to) study the (same) Book. Like unto their word is what those say who know not; but Allah will judge between them in their quarrel on the Day of Judgment.

 

Surah 2:120, Never will the Jews or the Christians be satisfied with thee unless thou follow their form of religion. Say: “The Guidance of Allah,-that is the (only) Guidance.” Wert thou to follow their desires after the knowledge which hath reached thee, then wouldst thou find neither Protector nor helper against Allah.

Surah 2:135, They say: “Become Jews or Christians if ye would be guided (To salvation).” Say thou: “Nay! (I would rather) the Religion of Abraham the True one, who followed Allah.”

Surah 2:140,Or do ye say that Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes were Jews or Christians? Say: Do ye know better than Allah. Ah! who is more unjust than those who conceal the testimony they have from Allah. but Allah is not unmindful of what ye do!

Over and over again, we see the lies coming from the moon god.

In Surah 8:12 we read, “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”

Surah 8:39, And fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression, and there prevail justice and faith in Allah altogether and everywhere; but if they cease, verily Allah doth see all that they do.

 

Notice the violence that is condoned with no dispensational divisions, so to them it’s all ONE dispensation or one period of time where these things are always commanded.

Surah 8:65. O Messenger. rouse the Believers to the fight. If there are twenty amongst you, patient and persevering, they will vanquish two hundred: if a hundred, they will vanquish a thousand of the Unbelievers: for these are a people without understanding.

Surah 9:5. Fight and slay the Pagans wherever ye find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war);

Surah 9:20. Those who believe, and suffer exile and strive with might and main, in Allah’s cause, with their goods and their persons, have the highest rank in the sight of Allah. they are the people who will achieve (salvation).

Surah 9:41. Go ye forth, (whether equipped) lightly or heavily, and strive and struggle, with your goods and your persons, in the cause of Allah. That is best for you, if ye (but) knew.

Surah 9:73. O Prophet! strive hard against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell,- an evil refuge indeed.

 

Now those are just some examples of the lies that are portrayed by those who follow the Qur’an which is based up the moon god of the Ur of the Chaldees that God had to separate Abraham from. Both the Koran and the Hadith (commentary to the Qur’an) promote lying, taking false oaths or breaking treaties and promises all in the name of Allah. Look at a passage that reminds us of how free we are both naturally and spiritually. Joh 8:31-44, Jesus therefore was saying to those Jews who had believed Him, “If you abide in My word, {then} you are truly disciples of Mine; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s offspring, and have never yet been enslaved to anyone [that’s lie, they were enslaved to Rome at the time;] how is it that You say, ‘You shall become free’?” Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. And the slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. If therefore the Son shall make you free, you shall be free indeed. I know that you are Abraham’s offspring [Jews]; yet you seek to kill Me, because My word or doctrine has no place in you. I speak the things which I have seen with {My} Father; therefore you also do the things which you heard from {your} father ---that is the devil.” They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.” Jesus said to them, “If you are Abraham’s children, do the deeds of Abraham. But as it is, you are seeking to kill Me, a man who has told you the truth, which I heard from God; this Abraham did not do - that is not like our Lord did it. You are doing the deeds of your father.” They said to Him, “We were not born of fornication [the virgin birth]; we have one Father, {even} God.” Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me; for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand what I am saying? {It is} because you cannot hear My word. You are of {your} father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own {nature;} for he is a liar, and the father of lies.”

Note in Joh 8:44, Satan was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own {nature;} for he is a liar, and the father of lies. He deceives the whole world, 1Jo 5:19, Rev 12:9. Now, while the devout Muslim believes with all of his heart that the rituals and doctrines of Islam are entirely heavenly in origin and cannot have any earthly sources, Middle East scholars have demonstrated beyond all doubt that every ritual and belief in Islam can be traced back to pre-Islamic Arabian culture. In other words Muhammad did not preach anything new.

Everything he taught had been believed and practiced in Arabia long before he was ever born. However, even many of the sincere Muslims do not really know what their Koran teaches. If you have any prejudice don’t take it out on the Arab race, especially in this country, but again realize where the true battle lies. Know your enemy. Islam is still one of the fastest growing religions today. There are more Muslims than Jews in North America. Now, you have heard it said that the Muslim religion is a peaceful religion or a religion of peace.

Where does it say that in their Koran? In fact, notice what it says concerning violence. Violence is commanded in the Quran for it says in the Surah 9:5: “Fight and slay the pagans (infidels) wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war.”.

What about is Islam or Allah or the Muslim religion is resisted? “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah or his apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or the cutting off of hands and feet from the opposite sides, or exile from the land.” Surah 5:33.

In the Al Tawbah which is a Muslim commentary on the Koran it says in the section called “The Repentance:” “Prophet, make war on unbelievers and hypocrites, and deal rigorously with them.” Surah 9:73.

“Let not the unbelievers think they will ever get away... strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy... rouse the faithful to arms! If they (the non-Muslims) incline to peace (accept Islam) make peace with them.” Surah 8:59-60.

Muhammad was not sinless: See Surah 40:55. He never performed a single miracle: Surah17:91-95. He did not die for anyone. No personal relationship with him is possible: he is dead. Islam is also Anti-Jewish.In the Al Maidah (The Table) it says: “Believers (Muslims), take neither Jews nor Christians to be your friends: they are friends with one another. Whoever of you seeks their friendship Shall become one of their number, and God does not guide (those Jewish and Christian (called “wrong-doers,” 5:51-5:74). They teach that the Jews are evil-doers?” 5:57. And believe or not Islam is said to be Anti-Black. American blacks have been widely deceived. Only people with white faces will be saved; people with black faces will be damned: Surah 3:106,107.

Surah 106-108, On the Day when some faces will be (lit up with) white, and some faces will be (in the gloom of) black: To those whose faces will be black, (will be said): “Did ye reject Faith after accepting it? Taste then the penalty for rejecting Faith.” But those whose faces will be (lit with) white,- they will be in (the light of) Allah’s mercy: therein to dwell (for ever). These are the Signs of Allah. We rehearse them to thee in Truth: And Allah means no injustice to any of His creatures.

Arab Muslims were enslaving black Africans long before Westerners. Our nation’s founders wrote “With Freedom comes Vulnerability” The statement has been around for awhile and I’m not sure who said it first. It was and is both a warning and a simple statement of fact. It is a very true statement, one that applies to many realms of life. As parents we know that well, we want to give our children some levels of freedom, but with each increase of freedom given, vulnerability is increased. We are free to choose, Due 30:19, there is a choice, choose life it says so that you may live.
