According to Dispensational Theology all theology has to have two of almost everything
Two peoples of God
Two second comings
Two ways to be saved
Two workings of the Holy Spirit for that salvation.
And also we have two Israels, because, as we have seen, Missler sees the offspring of The woman Israel to be Israel also.
Missler states concerning the Antichrist that Satan has always had to have one (An Antichrist) in the making, because The rapture could have occurred at any time over the last 2000 years. In fact he states that he loves that fact, because every time a soul is saved Satan must shudder thinking it could be that time (meaning the time of his demise). So somehow Satan can’t act until after the Rapture. So again this understanding lacks discernment for several reasons, one is because it overlooks the truth that Israel must be a nation in order for Satan to even attempt the destruction of this nation.
Missler points out that scripture states that Edomite Moab and Ammon will escape the Antichrist onslaught during Tribulation. He teaches that this is to give Israel a safe place to escape to (Petra in Edom).
The crucial bit of evidence from Missler himself is that this (Chapter 12 of Revelation) is what he calls the most important chapter in the Bible to anyone trying to understand the plan of God for the ages. Yet his own understanding lacks discernment. He doesn’t adequately explain his belief for why the offspring of the woman (the child) is the raptured church, and yet, it is this offspring of Israel who are the target of Satan’s wrath when Israel is carried into the wilderness for her protection. The chapter tells us exactly who these are.
Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life [even] when faced with death. (NASB2020)
Missler instead in a very uninforming way tries to make us believe that these are also Israel, which could be ok, but not with his removal of the church from Israel. And Israelites from the nation are yet to be saved, while these offspring of hers are testifying of Jesus. He continues this theme in his next lesson: Lesson 18. Where he lists seven personages: it is here that he again for the offspring lists “the Remnant of Israel” as the fifth of those personages. Followed by the two beasts of chapter 13. The first 4 were the woman, the man child, Michael, and the dragon.
The two Beasts
In his introduction he states that we believe that John in chapter 4 vs 1 “was transported forward in time to the Rapture”. Unfortunately there is no support from him for this rapture. The argument is over the absence of the word church (Ekklesia) in chapters 4-19.
See my prior post for a discussion of the probable reason for the missing word church: https://raptureonline.blog/2019/04/30/what-about-the-missing-church-or-bride-in-revelation-chapters-4-19-are-they-really-missing/
From here on forward to chapter 19 this is an expansion he believes of Daniel chapter 9.
He says from chapter 4 on: the book of Revelation is very Jewish. This lesson is taking place in the parenthesis between the sixth and seventh trumpets.
It is interesting that he points out these parenthesis as he refers to them, always making reference to the parenthesis between the sixth and seventh bowls of wrath in chapter 16. But he says that all of Revelation 4-19 are after the church is Raptured. And yet if it is in fact true as he sees it that each so called parenthesis deals with future Tribulation all Jewish events, then why does the parenthesis between bowl 6 and 7 deal with the Rapture to be as he sees it a done event, when sequentially as he believes revelation to be, it is a yet future event?
Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. (KJV)
Why do you think that this announcement would come just before Jesus returns to meet the armies of the world who are being gathered to destroy Israel?
According to him there are parentheses everywhere he sees a section disagreeing with his theology. The above verse fits exactly with the timeline that both Jesus and Paul had left for us.
