This is a good explanation on the lack of biblical warrant for a Dispensation rapture view. A particular point which I agree with thoroughly, is on the sad reality of having a low-view of Christ in the End Times. And this comes because of the focus on activities, and not on the reality in Christ in His Second Coming. This also puts down salvation by grace and the unity of how God saves sinners. In fact, it shifts the concern for tribulations and the Second Coming to only those who are ‘really’ at the last time. A progressive revelation view makes it applicable for every generation of Christian, which is exactly how Jesus Himself intends. Besides, Dispensation view is a more recent invention in Christian history (by John Nelson Darby in the 1800s who was the founder of the Plymouth Brethren assemblies). I always find that God’s tenet in His Word is always for faithfulness and not (never) novelty.

Good resource for a clearer understanding of God’s Word on the End Times.
