Satan and Dispensationalism #7

Sunday, October 11, 2015

“Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles” (Romans 1:13 KJV).

Today’s Scripture is one of the six key areas that Satan has found to be advantageous regarding confusing God’s people in this Dispensation of Grace, the Church the Body of Christ!

Satan wants ignorant Christians. After all, he can only rule over people who are unaware of what really matters. As one dear brother often says, “Ignorant brethren are the world’s largest denomination!” To add insult to injury, the exact six instances where Paul says not to be ignorant of some doctrine, they are the very doctrines of which Christendom is totally ignorant today! Awful! Shameful! Awful!

The first exhortation not to be ignorant is in today’s Scripture. Satan is physically hindering Paul’s apostleship from impacting Gentile believers in Rome. While details are lacking, consider what Paul wrote to the Thessalonian believers, “Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us” (1 Thessalonians 2:18). Satan hindered Paul from visiting Thessalonica by using a corrupt local government that legally banned him and Silas from entering the city (Acts 17:1-9). A similar event may have repeatedly impeded Paul from reaching Rome in today’s Scripture. What we do know is Satan used hindrances to restrain the Apostle’s ministry. (Interestingly, Satan’s plan backfired! God had Paul write Rome instead, thus giving us a Bible book to learn from—that epistle to the Romans!!!!)

There is still a satanic agenda today to keep Christians from listening to the Apostle Paul. Friends, let us ever be mindful of it. Paul is not physically here to be physically hindered, but Satan has alternative schemes. There are plenty of ways to hide Jesus Christ’s heavenly ministry through Paul. How? The Devil’s religious system keeps people in the Old Testament, the Four Gospels, early Acts, and Hebrews through Revelation. They are so busy reading mail that is not to or about them, they have no time or energy to read what is written to and about them. Paul’s epistles, Romans through Philemon, are largely ignored… thus, Christendom is largely ignorant!

Christian ambassador (Shawn Brasseaux)

Grace and peace! What a privilege to be an ambassador for the risen Christ here on WordPress! I am a Pauline dispensationalist Christian saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus plus nothing! My goal is to "have all men saved, and come to the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3,4). I seek to preach Jesus Christ crucified for our sins, buried, and raised again for our justification as the only way to salvation. Also, I seek to edify and perfect the saints using dispensational Bible study and the Authorized Version King James Bible!

    1. Hello Stewart, I elaborated on the first instance in the study you’re now replying to. (Space limited me earlier but I will expand a bit here for your sake.) As days go by, I will add more studies (i.e., addressing and correcting the other 5 instances).

      The first ignorance is that Christendom is unaware of Satan’s campaign to hide Paul’s grace doctrines from them. If you read today’s “Christian” books, listen to their sermons, talk to their preachers and church members, etc, you can see they do not have the spiritual maturity needed to recognize what they’ve done to themselves. They have corrupted themselves. They talk about how Satan operates and yet they are really ignorant of how he operates most efficiently.

      Like I said in the study, they spend far too much time in Israel’s Scriptures–Old Testament, Matthew through John, early Acts (especially chapter 2), and Hebrews through Revelation. They are hung up on law-keeping, water baptism, tithing, spiritual gifts, healings/health & wealth/material prosperity, prophecy, et cetera. Those passages do not describe what God is doing today with the Gentiles and the Church the Body of Christ. Paul is our apostle, Romans 11:13 says. We have to follow him as he follows Jesus Christ (1 Cor 11:1). Romans through Philemon (what God IS doing today) are the keys to rescuing ourselves from the spiritual traps in “Christianity” today.

      Does that explain it for you, friend?
