Transcript: The following is an Aiken/Block video production. In this series, we discuss the apostate institutional Christian church and its false doctrines. And we discuss corrupt Bibles and direct viewers to the real 1611 Authorized King James Bible. Enjoy more futurist myths who are the Elect? Futurists usually insist that the elect or the Jews. This is because most futurists are heavily influenced by dispensationalism. Dispensationalism conveniently redefines key biblical terms when they don’t fit with their predetermined doctrines. It is important to recognize that futurism, like dispensationalism, is first a predetermined interpretive system that then produces a theology. Conversely, historicism draws its meaning from what the Scripture says. That is to say, it begins with exegesis.
From there, it determines theology. For example, when Jesus in Matthew 24, verse 30, says he returns after the Tribulation and gathers believers, historicism takes it at its face value. All believers are gathered unto Christ after the tribulation when he returns at his Second Coming. On the other hand, futurism and its bed partner Dispensationalism don’t like that, as it does not fit with their presupposition that Jesus gathers believers secretly before the tribulation. In other words, a pre-tribulation rapture. So to remedy this, they redefined the term elect in verse 31 to mean Jews only. So the futurist story goes something like this true believers are gathered or raptured before the tribulation, and the Jews are gathered after the tribulation.
Now, this is entirely false, as a scripture makes no provision for two classes of believers in Christ. There is one people. How do we know? Paul wrote to the Galatians who were struggling with the question of whether or not there are two classes of Christians. He wrote There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. Did you hear that? All believers are one in Christ. No provision is made to split the body of Christ in two. Now, how does this apply to the term elect? Turn to Romans, chapter eleven, verse seven. It reads
What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for, but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded,
So what is Paul saying? He’s saying that the elect are those in Christ, not specifically just Jews, but all believers, regardless of nationality or sex. And he writes to the Thessalonians, referring to them as elect. And take note this was a congregation of Jews and Gentiles. Here’s what Paul wrote knowing brethren, beloved, your election of God one Thessalonians, chapter One, verse four. So these few verses I’ve quoted, and there are many more established that there is one people in Christ. Yet futurism and its partner Dispensationalism ignore these plain words. The problem is that a powerful religious and economic system has grown up around these false doctrines. And when anyone kicks against them, they are kicking against a monolithic cash cow that will not tolerate such insolent insubordination. So most seminaries train their pastors up in futurism and dispensationalism as it stokes the economic, Christian industrial complex. Let me leave you with one last scripture. One Peter, one. Verse two reads
Elect, according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit vnto obedience, and sprinkling of the blood of Iesus Christ: Grace vnto you and peace be multiplied.
This was written to all believers, particularly those in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, and Bithynia. Notice he calls them elect. Thus, the Bible clearly defines the term elect as all believers, not just Jews. I warn you of the leaven of futurism and dispensationalism, for they are at odds with Scripture.
