By John G. Reisinger
Abraham's 4 Seeds is a biblical exam of the presuppositions of Covenant Theology and Dispensationalism. Pastor, evangelist, and writer John G. Reisinger demonstrates how an accurate figuring out of Abraham's seeds is essential to harmonizing Scripture. He writes:
The following assertion, if properly understood, might help to remedy loads of confusion: The state of Israel was once now not the 'Body of Christ,' even supposing the physique of Christ is certainly the genuine 'Israel of God.'
Covenant Theology can't settle for the 1st a part of that assertion and Dispensationalism can't settle for the second one half. the elemental presuppositions of Covenant Theology make it obligatory that Israel be the church and be lower than an identical covenant because the church, and the single factor a Dispensationalist needs to keep is the church's current and destiny contrast from Israel which makes it obligatory that Israel and the church can by no means be lower than an analogous covenant or inherit an analogous advantages. what's necessary to one process is anathema to the opposite procedure.
Dispensationalism can't get Israel and the church jointly in any experience no matter what, and Covenant Theology can't get them aside. Dispensationalism can't see that the church is the genuine Israel of God and the success of the guarantees that God made to Abraham and the fathers, and Covenant Theology can't see that the church, because the physique of Christ, didn't, and easily couldn't, exist in truth and adventure until eventually the non-public creation of the Holy Spirit at the Day of Pentecost. Dispensationalism insists that Israel and the church have completely different gives you and destinies (one earthly and the opposite heavenly), and Covenant Theology insists that Israel and the physique of Christ are both the "same redeemed church less than a similar 'covenant of grace' and ruled by way of an identical exact 'canon of conduct.'"
Dispensationalism drives a wedge among the OT and the NT and not the twain shall meet as particular promise (OT) and exact achievement (NT); and Covenant Theology flattens the entire Bible out into one covenant the place there isn't any genuine and very important contrast among both the previous and New Covenants or Israel and the church.
The outdated Covenant proved one's guilt and forbade one to attract close to and not using a excellent righteousness or an appropriate sacrifice. the recent Covenant publicizes a believer to be either righteous and appropriate in God's sight, and it bids him come boldly with out worry into the very such a lot Holy position that was once absolutely closed off to all yet Aaron less than the previous Covenant.
The legislations as a felony covenant ended whilst the veil of the temple used to be hire from best to backside, and the legislation as a pedagogue over the sense of right and wrong was once pushed aside at the day of Pentecost while the 'promise of the daddy' took up his dwelling house in each believer because the own Vicar of the ascended Lord. The giving of the Spirit is the facts of the accredited paintings of Christ within the heavenly tabernacle, and the 'given Spirit' indwelling the believer is the indelible coverage of our everlasting reputation by way of the daddy.
It is the author's hope that this publication will be of profit to people who wish to comprehend "What does the Scripture say?" may possibly the watchword Sola Scriptura have genuine that means within the church!

But whether and in what forms this tendency is translated into reality depends on what kind of countertendencies exist, and this is more a matter of the historical context within which the accumulation process unfolds than of the logic of the process as such. Here I think it is essential to make a distinction between the stages into which the history of capitalism can be divided. There is fairly general agreement among Marxists (though by no means complete consensus) that the history of capitalism to date comprises three stages, with labels varying according to the angle of vision of the observer.
