The True Meaning of the Word "Gospel" and the Dangers of Premillennial Dispensationalism...
Anyone who truly understands the meaning of the word "Gospel" (euaggelion), knows that you can't have a Gospel without a LIVING, REIGNING KING. "Euaggelion" (Gospel) does not find its origin in religion. When any First Century Roman Citizen heard "Gospel" they understood it as a newsflash relating to: The Birth of a Caesar (king), The Triumphal Military Victory of a Caesar (king), or a Regime Change...where a New Caesar (king) was coronated. It had everything to do with THE KING and nothing to do with "heaven and hell" or any other components of what the term "Gospel" has come to mean in many Evangelical circles. While many Evangelicals teach COMPONENTS of the Gospel, few understand THE KING (of The Commonwealth of The Israel of God who are In Christ/Abraham's Seed) and HIS KINGDOM as its crux. To proclaim THE GOSPEL was (and is) to declare, "Jesus is Lord and Caesar is not!" That's why there was so much pushback from the political leaders and their religious pawns of that day!
Bottom Line: Believe The Gospel! The King was BORN! The King defeated all of His enemies! The Regime Change was inaugurated by His Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection, Ascension, and destruction of the Old Covenant system in 70 A.D. His Kingdom came, is coming, and shall come! That which was INAUGURATED around 2,000 years ago shall one day be fully consummated, as God's New Heaven and New Earth project comes to its completion! That's precisely why He taught us to pray, "Thy Kingdom come, They Will be done, on Earth (visible realm) as it is in Heaven (invisible realm)."
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
That Kingdom, Government, and Peace were initiated by Jesus LONG AGO; and are now dwelling in a people who rule and reign through Love; not fear, war, and the ways of earthly, sensual, and devilish empire!
What happens when people don't understand "THE GOSPEL", fulfilled History/Prophecy, and the Dynamics of His Present Kingdom?
They spend millions of dollars to send Jewish people to "Israel" while believing that 2/3rds of them will be violently destroyed in a soon-coming, "Great Tribulation". It's cruel and sick, but it's what Premillennial Dispensationalists do and promote.
They spend 3.8 BILLION+, each year, to fund a murderous, thieving, oppressive, racist, Apartheid regime because they believe that the Old Covenant system must be resurrected and the finished work of Christ simply wasn't enough.
They sacrifice The Beatitudes on the altar of Darby, Scofield, Larkin, Ice, LaHaye, Hagee, and friends. "Love your enemies" becomes "Use Empire to Kill your perceived enemies under the guise of Romans 13 and prophecy being fulfilled."
Many hold to this belief system (Premillennial Dispensationalism) with great sincerity and even greater ignorance (as yours truly once did), but it's time to study HISTORY (Especially the works of Flavius Josephus), along with the works of scholars outside of your traditional echo chambers. It's high time to stop superimposing that horrible Premillennial Dispensationalist lens over the Text of the Bible! I wouldn't be so adamant about this if it wasn't literally and needlessly KILLING dreams, hopes, and millions of PEOPLE!
Those who project fulfilled History and Prophecy into the present and future do so at the high cost of so many lives which are snuffed out through violence or greatly discouraged and depressed through fear and hopelessness.
Meanwhile, The True Gospel remains and awaits all who will embrace His HOPE!
