In episode 37, your hosts Rob and Bob bring their discussion of Dispensational Theology to a close. In this closing episode, we discuss the Dispensation of the Kingdom again. This time in order to understand what life in the dispensational kingdom would be like (beyond the sacrifices, that is). This is part 3 of our discussion of the Millennium.
In Dispensationalism, what would “kingdom-life” be like? Will character of the dispensational kingdom be one of “almost” perfect peace so that it could be said that the lion and lamb really lie down together? If so, why does mankind end up failing the dispensational tests by the end of the 1000 years. And how does Satan’s release from the 1000 year bondage fit into all of this? Besides all this, what’s up with Jesus’ parables. Are they for Christians today or just for those in the kingdom of heaven?
We’ll discuss these and other related questions in this episode of Theology Simply Profound.
