A Study of Dispensationalism
- "But there is further reason, and a pressing one today, why we should write upon our present subject, and that is to expose the modern and pernicious error of Dispensationalism. This is a device of the Enemy, designed to rob the children of no small part of that bread which their heavenly Father has provided for their souls; a device wherein the wily serpent appears as an angel of light, feigning to "make the Bible a new book" by simplifying much in it which perplexes the spiritually unlearned. It is sad to see how widely successful the devil has been by means of this subtle innovation."
(On Hebrews 10:25)
"and so much more as ye see the day approaching." There seems little room for doubt that the first reference here is to the destruction of the Jewish commonwealth, which was now very nigh for this epistle was written within less than eight years before Jerusalem was captured by Titus. That terrible catastrophe had been foretold, again and again, by Israel's prophets, and was plainly announced by the Lord Jesus in Luke 21. The approach of that dreadful "day" could be plainly seen or perceived by those possessing spiritual discernment: the continued refusal of the Nation to repent of their murder of Christ, and the abandoning of Christianity for an apostate Judaism by such large numbers, clearly presaged the bursting of the storm of God's judgment. This very fact supplied an additional motive for genuine Christians to remain faithful. The Lord Jesus promised that His followers should be preserved from the destruction of Jerusalem, but only as they attended to His cautions in Luke 21:8, 19, 34, etc., only as they persevered in faith and holiness, Matt. 24:13. The particular motive unto diligence here set before the Hebrews is applicable to other Christians just to the extent that they find themselves in similar circumstances." (Volume 2 Commentary on Hebrews (10:25).
(On Hebrews 10:37)
"The Greek is very expressive and emphatic. The apostle used a word which signifies 'a little while,' and then for further emphasis added a particle meaning 'very,' and this he still further intensified by repeating it; thus, literally rendered this clause reads, 'For yet a very, very little while, and he that shall come will come.'…'For yet a little while, and He that shall come will come, and will not tarry.' The reference here is to the person of the Lord Jesus as is evident from Hab. 2:3, to which the apostle here alludes. Pink-Commentary on Hebrews-Pg 145

I am so profoundly thankful at this moment for his (Arthur Pink's) teaching in the "Exposition of the Gospel of John where I have been reading and rejoicing in the truth gleaned from the washing of the feet and Christ the Lord's feet annointed and the meaning of both and the meaning of the blood and water...If any child of God reads this comment and hasn't already

PINK SAID IN HIS BOOK THE SOVENTY OF GOD ;THAT WE HAD AS MUCH TO DO WITH OUR NEW BIRTH AS WE DID WITH OUR FIRST.NOTHING.

You are deceptive and untruthful when you list the names of writers and theologians as adherents to preterism by taking their quotes concerning the destruction of Jerusalem and applying that to the Rapture. Pink never said that the rapture took place in 70 A.D.!

Thank you for this work
I have been in the ministry for 35 years, And studying . The Lord has
shown me new things. As a dispensationalist I had to break my foot to
get the shoe to fit.

Yeah for Pink. in the Dictionary for pre-mellenialism, by Crouch, It
discribes Pink as being very miserable after he abandoned
dispensationalism. Why that would write that is strange. It seems that
have to slump that low and say he was unhappy as a partial preterist, as
if they know. It shows you the propoganda the futurists use!! HE SHALL
HAVE DOMINION. RNB
