Body of Christ Position and Hope. Bible Study Illustration Chart 1 - Pastor David
(Chart courtesy of the Berean Literature Foundation)
This Bible Study Chart illustrates the position and Hope of the Church of this Dispensation of Grace, the Body of Christ. It shows how God interrupted the prophetic program and "wedged" or "sandwiched" The Dispensation of Grace BETWEEN the pouring out of His Spirit at Pentecost and the pouring out of His Wrath in the Tribulation to come.
During this parenthesis He is forming the Body of Christ out of Jews AND Gentiles, reconciled to Himself by the Cross. Present day believers, Children of God, members of the Body of Christ, have their positions in the Heavenlies IN Christ, and wait for Him to come and receive them to Himself. (1 Thessalonians 1:9-10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)
In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. BELIEVE today. The time is short.
So There You Have it!
Spread this message to everyone you know, far and wide.
Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.
In The LORD Jesus Christ,
