There are four basic changes: from Gentiles before the time of the Tower of Babel, to working among Jews from Abraham's time on; and then going back to Gentiles during this present dispensation under Paul's ministry, and finally, at the Rapture, God will again turn His attention to the Jews. We also noticed the progressive revelation that we find in Scripture. God did not give the entire Word of God at one time for He revealed it progressively. What He revealed in former times is not necessarily the message He requires us to obey and believe at this present time.
We will be searching the Scriptures and finding out where we fit in. We will consider the Earthly Hope and the Heavenly Hope. One of the first items we have to consider is, what does the Bible mean when it talks about our hope? " and if you were to answer, "Well, I hope so," what would they probably think? They would most likely think that you're really not sure you're coming. But the Bible word for "hope" is a much stronger word. It does not contain the uncertainty that you find in the English word.
Yet, if they do not have faith in the proper message for this dispensation, are they going on the trip? A lot of religious people today believe something. Granted, many of them believe something that's not even found in the Bible. But many of them believe things that are in the Bible for another age. You might say, "God never changed. " That's right, He is. But while the character of God never changes, His methods of operation do. That is something we have to understand if we are going to understand Scripture.
