Dispensationology was conceived from being exposed to the methodology of dispensationalism. It has been the most transformative event in my walk with the Lord. Dispensationalism is not a set of beliefs like Calvanism or Arminianism; rather it is a method of extracting context from scripture.
If you died today, do you know if you would go to heaven? Do you think your good works will get you into heaven? Do you feel worthy enough? Salvation is not dependent on anything you can do, but what Christ did for you. Learn how you can know with certainty that you will have eternal life.
Bibliology is the study of the Word of God. Here you will find information to help guide you to better understand the Bible and why it is different from all other sources of knowledge. Learn the essentials of faith, Biblical doctrine, and key teachings to help you know your Creator—Jesus Christ.
There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn what God has revealed in His word. These roadmaps are graphic tools to help you navigate through the clutter of false doctrine, apostasy, and deception.
Dispensationology is my effort to glorify God and promote the "big picture" of His plan for His creation. My goal is for this to be a springboard and a visual starting point to introduce you to God's word and ultimately to our Creator—Jesus Christ. It comes from my interest in dispensationalism; which uses a normal, grammatical, historical, contextual interpretation of scripture. I pray it blesses you as much as it has blessed me.
Dispensationology derives from the word dispensation, from the Greek word oikonomía. Strongs defines it as οἰκονομία oikonomía, oy-kon-om-ee'-ah; from G3623; administration (of a household or estate); specially, a (religious) "economy":—dispensation, stewardship.
The suffix “ology” is a subject of study or a branch of knowledge. So combined, dispensationology is the study of the dispensations, or here, the study of the administrations of God. It can be categorized under the many studies of systematic theology and it is the most accurate and consistent method of interpretation (hermeneutic) of the Bible. One of the reasons for its accuracy is the emphasis on a literal interpretation. Some are confused by the word literal used here. It does not mean literal as in we take every word literally. In context, it is referring to a normal interpretation of the scriptures. Most scholars use this method, but what differentiates dispensationalists from all the others is that we use this method consistently throughout the entire Bible.
"The starting point of dispensationalism is a consistent literal approach to the whole Bible. In other words, I’m not going to interpret the gospel of John with one method of interpretation and then go to Genesis 1-11 or the book of Daniel, or the book of Revelation with a different method. You take things in their ordinary sense, unless there’s an obvious figure of speech." Dr. Andy Woods
Kevin Thompson from Beyond Fundamentals gives some insight into the distinctions of dispensationalism in his “Replacing Dispensationalism” video he notes there are no “beliefs” in dispensationalism, only a level of awareness. Paraphrasing some of his statements, he says dispensationalism is something you “do;” it is a process, a set of observations. Calvanism is a set of beliefs, dispensationalism is not. Some try to pit one system against another; ie: Calvanism and Free Grace. A Calvanist is a bot to the system. Teaching a system is like giving someone a fish. We would rather teach people how to fish. If you are opposed to these methods, you are against context discovery. Dispensationalism is an enhanced awareness of context. Calvanists resort to confirmation bias because they take their system and apply it to the text.
These resources are provided for your convenience and to clarify my position. I may not agree with every single statement made by those mentioned, but I do find that my position lines up closely with Andy Woods. You should always pray and ask God for wisdom and discernment, read your Bible, and the Holy Spirit will guide you into all the truth—John 16:13.
"These things I have written to you concerning those who are trying to deceive you. And as for you, the anointing which you received from Him remains in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you remain in Him." 1 John 2:26-27
Dispensationalism is a very powerful tool to help you understand God's awesome plan for you and the world. You can trace its roots back to Justin Martyr (110-165) and Iranaeus (130-200). Learn where the church started deviating from this consistent method of interpretation and how you can restore its use to help you and others grow closer to the Lord and understand His purposes.
