Dispensastionalsim is another name for stewardship. Are you a good steward of the direct revelation God has given to you through Scripture? It is also the historic study of how Christians have read and interpreted the Bible throughout Church history. Some have made false claims that this method of study was invented by John Nelson Darby and polished by C.I. Scofield. Pastor Tim Lewis and Scott Button work together in this video series to show that not only is Dispensationalism a better alternative to reading the Bible than Reformed Theology, but it is also consistent with the history of the Church.
While salvation has always remained through faith, God dealt differently with different people at different times. God progressively revealed his Word. People who received that Word were only responsible to glorify God with the amount of Word that was currently received. They were to be good stewards of what God entrusted them. Adam was not responsible for Noah’s economy. Noah was not responsible for Abraham. Abraham was not responsible for Moses. Moses is not responsible for the church.
Israel and the church are two separate entities. All of the Old Testament promises to Israel are for Israel, and not the church. God has turned his attention away from the Jews for the moment, but will reestablish a literal Jewish people during a literal Tribulation and culminating into a literal Millennium. The church did not begin in Genesis 3, but rather in Acts 2 at Pentecost with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, which Israel and the Old Testament saints did not have.
All of the Bible should be interpreted consistently with literal interpretation. God meant what he wrote. In Genesis 1, God wrote six days. Therefore, God meant six days. This does not deny the existence of figures of speech and symbolic language in the Bible. Have you ever read the book of Revelation? It is full of symbols, but there is a literal meaning behind the symbolic passages.
