This change affects the way dispensationalists understand key biblical themes such as the kingdom of God, the church in God's redemptive program, the interrelationship of the biblical covenants, the historical and prophetic fulfillment of those covenants, and the role of Christ in that fulfillment”. “Dispensationalism is a system of theology that began in the mid-19th century. It is primarily associated with the Reformed wing of Protestantism and has been defined as a philosophy of history delineating God's relationship to human affairs, a hermeneutical methodology defining how Scripture is to be interpreted, and more popularly as a particular form of eschatology, a futurist premillennialism with an apocalyptic view of the end times”.

Dispensationalists teach a parenthesis (2000-year gap) between the 69th and 70th week, which becomes the church age of grace, essentially starting from Christ’s resurrection and extending all the way until the rapture of…
