ANSWER: These verses are Jesus' tremendous prophecy of the fate of Israel at his Second Coming. Scofield ignores it and teaches just the opposite elsewhere. These Scriptures show all the evil persons burning in hell fire and all the saved ones in the glory of God's kingdom. (cf. Lk 13:24-28 ) Scofield flatly denies this and the words of Mt 13:37-43. He says, No, the millennium comes next and the judgment pictured here is one thousand years later. In all these contradictions, he is contradicting him whom he calls Lord. "For the Son of Man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." (Mt 16:27) The final day of judgment is at the end of this age--the end of all things of this fallen creation.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967)on Ro 11:1-6, last paragraph: "That the Christian now inherits the distinctive Jewish promises is not taught in Scripture. The Christian is of the heavenly seed of Abraham and partakes of the spiritual blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant, but Israel as a nation always has its own place, and is yet to have its greatest exaltation as the earthly people of God."
And SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on Ro 11:26, last paragraph: "According to the prophets, Israel regathered from all nations, restored to her own land and converted, is yet to have her greatest earthly exaltation and glory."
ANSWER: This is the millennium of the Pharisees, not of the Bible. It contradicts the plain prophecies of Jesus himself. Israel's only hope is Ro 11. Paul says they were cast away because of unbelief but verse 23 says, "If they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again." See lsrael's end as in Jer 23:39-40; 24:910; 29: l0-11 and Isa 65:1-15. Israel after the flesh is not an heir of God and never, ever will be. Israel is cast out. 1Co 15:50, "Flesh and blood cannot inherit." Gal 4:21-30 says. "Shall not be heir with...."
See also 2Th 1:6-10: "...And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and the glory of his power: when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe."
See also Lk 17:26-27; Mt 24:35-39: "As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it also be in the days of the Son of Man. They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all." Why not believe the Lord'? Oh, but that millennium.
See also Lk 17:29-30: "The same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed."
If the flood takes away all the unsaved in this one day, where does a millennium come in? Only those in the ark are saved. There are no others left. Scofield has no note on this. He cannot give an honest comment for it would ruin his teaching, such as in his note on Mt 3:2: "The prophetic aspect, the kingdom is to be set up after the return of the King in glory."
You cannot ignore any Scripture and pretend honesty in interpretation. Jesus has all power. What more could be given him? He is above all now. ( Mt 28:18: Eph 1:20-21 )
In Lk 19:11-27, Jesus teaches by parable, about his kingdom because the Jews supposed it should immediately appear. But, in verse 12, he taught them he must leave and go to a far country to receive his kingdom and after that return; but his citizens hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, "We will not have this man to reign over us." Upon his return he would judge his servants and his enemies. The parable illustrated his judgments of his servants, good and bad. He said, "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me." (v. 27.)
"Oh no," some would say. "We have a greater revelation. After he comes again he is crowned king and the kingdom is set up and those, who would not have him, now see him in his glory and believe in him and with him reign over the Gentiles for a thousand years."
Now, that is something indeed! Isn't it amazing what can be done by just a little art of interpretation?
Mt 13:47-50 gives the parable of the net cast into the sea, in which good and bad fish are drawn in and sorted. The bad are thrown away. "So shall it be at the end of the 'aion' age: the angels shall come forth and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth." This is an ignored text, as some prefer to teach the opposite.
In Ps 110:1, Jehovah, the Father, says to the Son, David's Lord, "Sit thou at my right hand until I make thine enemies thy footstool." In 1Ch 29:23 we see David's throne: "Then Solomon sat on the throne of the Lord, i.e., of Jehovah as king instead of David his father." The same throne, not a make do, nor a special throne just for Jesus, but the throne of Jehovah in each case, and now Jesus sits upon it in heaven. It is God's throne and kingdom, and God has promised that Jesus would be there forever. (1Ch 17:14. ) The same throne at 1Ch 28:5; 29:23 and 2Sa 7:5, 16 is also called David's throne forever. So it is one eternal throne over one eternal kingdom of God and of Christ, which was shown on earth in type form as David's.
But David in Hebrew means, The Beloved, and is the name of Christ at Eph 1:6 and at several prophetic references, including Eze 34:23-24; 37:24-25; Isa 55:3-4: Ps 89. God has exalted Jesus to sit upon that throne forever. And Jesus took that throne at his Resurrection.
If it is "forever" then why does the Psalmist prophesy "till I make thine enemies thy footstool?" That is a set time, the time of the struggle with evil, the measure of this age with its gospel work and mercy For whosoever will. John in Rev 1:9 calls it "His kingdom and patience." Peter speaks of the time measure and its work in Ac 2:29-36; 3:20-21. It is 2Pe 3:8-10. David says in Ps 110:2. "Rule thou in the midst of thine enemies." It is now and it will end at his coming, for this session of his reign will bring every enemy into submission, and that from his heavenly throne, not after he comes back to earth, but definitely before. (1Co 15:24-26 and verses 50-54) The early church, the reformers, Calvin, Luther. Melancthon, Ridley, Arminius, Latimer, Whitefield, John and Charles Wesley and Spurgeon all saw this truth. Eph 1:19-23 shows the Scofield teaching utterly false. This is God's description of Christ's present exaltation, described again in Php 2:9-10 and 1Ti 6:15-16 and Mt 28:18.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967 ) on Dt 30:3: "It is important to see that the nation (Israel) has never as yet taken the land under the unconditional Abrahamic Covenant, nor has it ever possessed the whole land."
ANSWER: The conditional physical land promise to Moses and the nation, (Ex 3:8, 17; Lev 18:28 ) was completely fulfilled. (Jos 21:43,45 ) "And the Lord gave unto Israel all the hind which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. There failed not ought of any good thing which the Lord had spoken unto the house of Israel, all came to pass."
The unconditional land promise to Abraham's SEED was a different promise. The Apostle Paul defined this different promise in Gal 3:16, saying God made promises to Abraham concerning Abraham's SEED that the promises were to the single descendant, Jesus Christ, in whom all the nations would be blessed, (Ge 22:17-18); the same to Isaac, (Ge 26:4 ) and to Jacob, (Ge 28:13-14.) Scofield very conveniently HAS NO EXPLANATORY NOTES on these Scriptures. Many modern Bible translations have furthered Scofield's Abrahamic Covenant error by changing SEED from the singular (Christ) to the plural "descendants" and thus have substituted the many physical descendants as heirs to the promises in place of the one true spiritual inheritor, Jesus Christ! This is a crucial error of immense import. Paul further develops the meaning of SEED to include all those who are one in the Body of Christ. (Gal 3:26-29; Ro 12:5.) The promises of the land and of multiplying the SEED are fulfilled forever in the saints of the Body of Christ who have, do now, and will occupy his Kingdom in this present age. (Heb 11:8-16. )
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967 ) on Lev 23:24: "...these trumpets, always symbols of testimony, are connected with the regathering and repentance of Israel after the church, or pentecostal period is ended."
And SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967 ) on Lev 23:27, last lines: "Historically the fountain of Zec 13 was opened at the crucifixion, but rejected by the Jews of that and succeeding centuries. After the regathering of Israel the fountain will be efficaciously 'opened' to Israel."
ANSWER: Scofield speaks above as if he were God. But Lk 13:2528 says, "When once the master of the house has risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door saying, Lord, Lord open to us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence you are ... depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves shut out."
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on Lk 13:28: HE HAS NO NOTE HERE. What could he say that would not contradict Jesus?
Jesus also gives the parable of the tares in the field that shall be destroyed first at his coming at the harvest at the end of the age: (Mt 13:37-43; 13:47-50) No second chance. The end of the age will bring every person to his eternal destiny.
Any doctrine that clearly contradicts a plain, clear statement of Scripture, be it prophecy or the words of Jesus, cannot be true, no matter how many Scriptures are quoted in an attempt to prove otherwise or that contradict Moses' statement in Ac 3:22-23: "Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me, him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you ... Every soul which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from among the people."
God said upon condition of your disobedience, "I will make Jerusalem a curse to all nations of the earth." (Jer 26:4-8 ) Those pinning their hopes on an earthly city will be cursed along with her. There is no salvation at all for the earthly city, as Gal 4:22-30 plainly teaches.
The book of Revelation is a book of signs and symbols; if a few verses in chapter 20 about a thousand year period contradict Jesus, Peter, Paul and Moses, something is wrong with the interpretation of the passage. Scofield is the arch heretic of all church history and his notes have influenced, and in some cases have controlled, a large portion of church thinking for this century.
These strong words may draw blood, but the Scripture warns, "Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood." (Jer 48:10 ) There is much good material in the Scofield 1917 notes, and more in the 1967 edition, but the old heresies are still there. No poison pill is all poison, only enough to kill you.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967 ) from Introduction to THE FOUR GOSPELS part 1: "...the mind should be freed from presuppositions, especially the notion that the Church is the true Israel."
ANSWER: Scofield asks you to free your mind from the truth of the biblical teaching of the Church and swallow his false teaching. Listen to Paul, (Ro 2:28-29 ): "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; but he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men but of God." See also Ro 9:6b-8: "They are not all Israel which are of Israel. Neither because they are of the seed of Abraham, are they all children; but, in Isaac shall thy seed be called." That is, "They which are the children of the flesh, these are NOT the children of God; but the children of the promise are counted for the SEED." (cf. Hos 1: 10; Ro 9:24-26 )
G. Campbell Morgan, in 1943, two years before he passed to be with the Lord, wrote to a correspondent concerning the union of Israel and the church: "I am quite convinced that all the promises made to Israel are found, are finding and will find their perfect fulfillment in the church. It is true that in time past, in my expositions, I gave a definite place to Israel in the purposes of God. I have now come to the conviction, as I have just said, that it is the new and spiritual Israel that is intended." (Letter to Rev. H.F. Wright, New Brunswick, Victoria. From A New Heaven and a New Earth, Archibald Hughes, Presbyterian and Reformed Press, Box 185, Nutley, N.J.)
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on Mt 28:18-20: The Great Commission. He gives a dissertation concerning the name of the Trinity, but nothing about the exalted authority of Christ or the command to go and teach all nations to observe whatever he commanded his disciples. Nothing about Christ backing them up and being with them all the days.
ANSWER: Then what do these notes amount to? They are an extensive diversion to turn your mind away from the real meaning of the passage, for Scofield is against these teachings having anything to do with the Church of Jesus Christ.
Look at the Great Commission: "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth." (Power here is Greek -- authority). "All authority is given unto me." ALL AUTHORITY. There is no other. "Go ye therefore, and teach (or disciple) all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost; teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world." Whatever he commanded his disciples, all nations were to be taught to keep and obey. Then he said that he would be with them to the end of the world. A literal rendering would be, "I am with you all the days, even unto to the end of the age."
This word has come to us, and Jesus has commanded us to keep all the commandments that he gave his disciples when he was with them. Shall we send back word to the Lord that we are not about to do so on the authority of Scofield?
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917) on Introduction to 2 Corinthians: (This outrageous heresy has been removed from the 1967 Scofield Bible. However, millions of copies of the 1917 Bible are still being used around the world so I am including this note from p. 1230. )
"It is evident that the really dangerous sect in Corinth was that which said, 'And I of Christ."' He puts in parenthesis, (1Co 1: 12 ) and continues, "They rejected the new revelation through Paul of the doctrines of grace, grounding themselves, probably, on the kingdom teachings of our Lord as a minister of the circumcision, (Ro 15:8 ) seemingly oblivious that a new dispensation had been introduced by Christ's death. This made necessary a defense of the origin and extent of Paul's apostolic authority."
ANSWER: What made it necessary? Some people said, "I am of Christ," and they were wrong? Is PAUL the one who has the new revelation for this dispensation? This completely rejects all the teachings of Christ and acceptance of his death. Scofield says his teaching as a minister of the circumcision had been blotted out by his death. His teachings had been kingdom teachings, which according to Scofield, are postponed until his hypothetical millennium and they were oblivious to Paul's new revelation.
See 1Co 1:10-17. Paul says, "It is reported to me that every one of you is saying, I am of Paul. I am of Apollos and I of Cephas and I of Christ." Then, he points out it was not Paul or Cephas who died for them, but Christ. Paul, Apollos, Cephas are only those who helped, but Christ is the center. Then concluding, he says, "All things are yours, whether of Paul, or Cephas or life or death or things present or things to come, but all are yours and ye are Christ's and Christ is God's." (1Co 3:21-23.) Paul rebukes them for some things, but he never rebukes the ones who said, "I of Christ." In that you are right, you are of Christ.
Scofield is saying that Paul is the mediator of the new covenant. That the new dispensation begins with Paul. That he reveals the gospel. That Jesus was only teaching law. Scofield makes that clear in his notes (SRB 1917, 1967 ) on Mt 5:2-20 where he claims, when you look closely, that Jesus taught law and that it was not our privilege or duty to keep all his words. Here we have heresy of the first water. Jesus, over and over in his discourse to the disciples in the upper room, emphasizes the necessity of keeping his commandments because they are the will and Word of God. Scofield says, "No, put it all away."
This is major heresy. This is what Paul says to withdraw yourself from. Scofield takes the death of Christ as the turning point of the dispensation, whereas Jesus took the coming of John Baptist as the turning point. (Lk 16:16. Satan deceived Scofield. )
See Heb 2:1-4: "Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed, lest at any time we should let them slip. For if the word spoken by angels was steadfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompense of reward: How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will."
Where did the gospel begin? "...which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, [not by Paul, but by the Lord] and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him," --the twelve plus Paul, for Paul heard him also. The source of the gospel is not Paul, as Scofield teaches. The gospel of grace came by our Lord Jesus Christ. "The law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ." We all agree that anyone who gets saved gets saved by the grace of God, forgiveness of sins, and the regenerative work of God through the Holy Spirit, and only then. But when this has taken place, it will manifest itself in obedience. Note Heb 5:8-9: "Though he were a son, yet learned he obedience through the things which he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation, unto all them that obey him." Now that's clear. In 1Jn 2:4, we read: "He that saith I know him and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar and the truth is not in him."
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on Mt 5:17: "Christ's relation to the law of Moses may be thus summarized: 1. Christ was made under the law. 2. He lived in perfect obedience to the law. 3. He was a minister of the law to the Jews, clearing it from rabbinical sophistries, enforcing it in all its pitiless severity upon those who professed to obey it."
ANSWER: "For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments, for his commandments are not grievous." (1Jn 5:3. ) Even the Ten Commandments could not be called grievous, that a person should be true to God and not depart to idols. That was not grievous, or that one should honor God and not take his name in vain. Was that a painful commandment, or to honor his father and mother, to keep the Sabbath day of rest, to refrain from lying about his neighbor, or not to commit adultery, or not to covet things that were not his own? Are these things pitiless? Scofield speaks as if they are. He speaks of Christ as being a minister of the law to the Jews clearing it from rabbinical sophistries and enforcing it in all its "pitiless severity." My Bible says the law was added because of sin, but grace did much more abound, cf: Jn 8:1-11 I don't see anything pitiless about God dealings with the Jews. Certainly, there is none in the Sermon on the Mount.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on Jn 14:6: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life; no man cometh to the Father but by me." Scofield HAS NO NOTE on Jn 14:6.
ANSWER: Scofield denies Jn 14:6 elsewhere by teaching that Israel is still God's people, walking with the Father, but at Christ's Second Coming they will then accept Christ. See 1Jn 2:22-23, "Who is a liar but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son. hath not the Father." See also 1Jn 4:1-6.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917 ) on Mt 13:47 last lines: "He sees the redeemed of all ages, but especially his hidden Israel, yet to be restored and blessed."
SCOFIELD notes (SRB 1917, 1967 ) on Rev 3:21 and 2Sa 7:16: These notes advocate that we are not to assume 'the throne of his father David,' is synonymous with 'my Father's throne,' or that the 'house of Jacob' is the Church composed of both Jew and Gentile. (cf. 1Ch 29:23: Ps 110:1; Ac 2:29-35 of the throne and 1Ch 17:14. )
ANSWER: See Lk 1:32-33. "He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end." One throne forever, all others are destroyed. Ac 3:22-23 describes the house of Jacob.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917); Ro 4:2-6: "Paul speaks of that which justifies man before God; faith alone, wholly apart from works."
ANSWER: False, for works of obedience are the fruit of faith, Jas 2:14-26; 1Co 9:25.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967); Ac 7:38: "Israel in the land is never called a Church (SRB 1917 )." "A better translation would be 'the congregation' (SRB 1967 )."
ANSWER: He is against the church being in the Old Testament; see 1Ch 28:8; 29:1,10, 20; Dt 23:1-8, Israel the Church of God, Ac 7:38. The Church in the wilderness -- ekklesia is Greek for Church. This appears over eighty times in the Old Testament. Qahal, Hebrew for Church, appears 133 times and is translated congregation. Edah, a synonym for Qahal, appears over 120 times. The Old Testament Church was a type of the New Testament Church. (Dt 23:1-8; Heb 9:7-10, 15, 23, cf. Ex 24:4-8 ) All are now New Testament. (Heb 12:22-24; Eph 2:11-22) Qahal equals Church in Salkinson's Hebrew New Testament. Congregation is not merely a better translation. It is synonymous with Church. It is the Church in the land.
SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917, 1967) on 1Co 14:1: "Tongues and the sign gifts are to cease, meantime they are to be used with restraint."
ANSWER: Scofield spins his prohibition to cease out of thin air. Nowhere do the Apostles, who gave us instructions for this age, call for a ceasing of the gifts of the Spirit. "Wherefore, brethren, covet to prophesy. and forbid not to speak with tongues." (1Co 14:39.)
God set the ministry gifts in the Church: apostles, prophets, gifts of healing, helps, governments and diversities of tongues. These gifts of the Spirit were to empower the Church to carry out the Great Commission.
Lennard Darbee makes a thought provoking comment in Tongues the Dynamite of God: "Unlike ancient Israel, the Church no longer kills the prophets, it simply ignores them, and it is not so much the neglect of the fruits, but rather the contempt of the gifts that hamstrings the Church of our day. Does God go to great length describing the gifts of the Spirit--of which he would not have us ignorant, line them up like ninepins and then with love for a bowling ball, do away with them? We are to desire spiritual gifts." (pp. 26-27.)
Three chapters, 1 Corinthians 12, 13 and 14, give instructions for the Church about the value and use of the gifts of the Spirit.
SCOFIELD: This note on Mt 5:2-12 (SRB 1917) was also removed from the 1967 Bible. "For these reasons, the Sermon on the Mount in its primary application gives neither the privilege nor the duty of the Church. These are found only in the Epistles." Scofield explains that these words mean very little to you. They are reserved for a future kingdom.
ANSWER: That is rank heresy! Jesus says you will not get into his kingdom unless you are busy keeping his words. 1Ti 6:3-5 says "If any man teach otherwise and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the doctrine according to godliness," (That, believe me, is the Sermon on the Mount). "He is proud, knowing nothing but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings. perverse disputings by men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth ... From such withdraw yourself." Scofield calls Jesus, "Our Lord," but says it is not your duty or privilege to keep his sayings.
Peter quotes Moses in Acts 3:22-23, as he has told the people of Israel, "to repent and be converted that your sins may be blotted out ... For Moses truly said unto the fathers, A prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you of your brethren like unto me, him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever he shall say unto you. And it shall come to pass that every soul which will not hear that prophet shall be destroyed from among the people." Peter's preaching is quite different front Scofield's notes. Which one is the heretic?
THE REAL ISRAEL:
Joel predicts that marvelous scene and that initial voice of the gospel in the crowning of Jesus. Some say it will be fulfilled in the millennium, but Jesus said that at the end of THIS AGE he would send his angels and gather out all that offend and they shall be cast into the fire. No more of the wicked and righteous mingling together to the torment and oppression of God's people. It is the end of this age. Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their father. "Angels in flaming fire take vengeance on them that obey not the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and the glory of his power when he shall come to be glorified in his saints and to be admired in all them that believe." "We enter into rest the day the Lord destroys the wicked when they receive the sentence of eternal death and flaming fire is poured out on them that obey not the gospel. Some say that we will be raptured away, but like a thief in the night he comes to destroy the wicked." (2Th 1:7-10 and 2Pe 3:10 )
The Greek says they shall in no wise escape, he will in no wise miss the redeemed and he will not miss the wicked ... all those will be destroyed. We have the wicked consumed with the brightness of his coming exactly as is described. There are no wicked left to go into a millennium, Mt 13:40-42, 49, 50. When he comes it is to save his own. If the Jews turn to the Lord they can be saved also. "There is none other name under heaven whereby we must be saved." (Ac 4:12) This is the only way to be saved or to shed the spirit of antichrist. It must be done NOW while the door is open and they can say, blessed be he who comes in the name of the Lord.
Christians do the Jews a great wrong when they suggest that they will have a second chance or that being fleshly children of Abraham can bring salvation. The Jewish people suffered the worst destruction ever brought upon any people in A.D. 70 because they refused to believe the Scriptures that plainly prophesied of the coming of the Messiah. They knew when he was to come because of Daniel 9, but since he did not meet their preconceived ideas of what they expected Messiah to be, they crucified him and suffered the loss of everything. All those who refuse to believe God's more sure word of prophecy concerning Christ's Second Coming, are headed for everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord when he shall come to be glorified in his saints.
Paul explains the reason for their blindness in 2Co 3:13-16: "And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face, that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same veil untaken away in the reading of the Old Testament; which veil is done away in Christ ... unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away."
Only the Holy Spirit can remove the veil. I love the Jewish people and pray that God may grant them this great mercy that they may behold Jesus, their Messiah, in time to be saved from eternal loss.
God put the ministry gifts in the church: apostles, prophets, teachers, miracles, gifts of healing, helps, governments, and diversities of tongues. (1Co 12:28) Scofield took it upon himself to remove them, SCOFIELD note (SRB 1917,1967) on 1Co 14:1-2, "Tongues and the sign gifts are to cease." Thus he takes the spiritual equipment that the Holy Spirit provided for Christians to carry on his work and leaves them sitting at a bus stop waiting for the Lord to snatch them out of the mess the world is in by a secret rapture. They forget that Jesus is to sit at the right hand of the Father until all enemies are put under his feet.
The very truth of the Bible has been destroyed. The alarm should have been sounded in 1909 when the boundaries were broken on all sides and the church accepted unscriptural teaching as truth.
We must take back our Bibles and return to apostolic foundations.
The Word is clear and specific. To put the 70th week off to the end of time takes the heart out of the gospel and makes a mockery of the Visitation of the Messiah who wrought our salvation in that one special week. It is time for all the church to search the Scriptures deeply, do some research on church history and re-think its positions on prophecy.
A long-needed Reformation has begun.
