Installment [final] #3
1909AD, C.I. SCOFIELD [no relation to Ellis Skolfield]
Scofield accepted Darby’s “Seven Year Tribulation” invention.
hree members of his revision committee resign because it could not be supported by the Bible, nevertheless, Scofield includes the Ribera‐Lacunza‐Macdonald‐Darby creation in the 1909 –and future editions – of the Scofield Bible. The Scofield group knows true origin of the “seven‐year” and
"pre‐tribulation” rapture views, but since Irvingites were known to be cultish, hides the knowledge from the public. The view supported
anyway because of its great fund‐raising capability and because
it increased the sales of the Scofield annotated Bible.
Copy of Lacunza’s original work is in Oxford University Library, Oxford, UK. Documentation for the above is voluminous, but three readily accessible sources are:
606BC ‐ Daniel began prophesying at the fall of the kingdom of Judah to tell the Jews in captivity (and the Gentile nations who held them) what both their futures would be while Gentiles controlled the Holy Land. Through Daniel, God also told the Jews what would happen to them during the Christian Era.
So was the culminating book in the Bible positioned at the beginning of the Christian Era to tell the Church about the just first few years of this era (as Preterists believe) or about the last few years of this era (as Dispensationalists believe?
If they’re right, then God changed from foretelling the whole future of an era to foretelling just tiny bits of this one. Since “God changes not,” That’s unlikely!
It appears that Revelation was penned at the beginning of this era to tell God’s Two Witness (the Jewish people and the Gentile Church) what both their futures would be during this era and warn the unsaved world of its impending judgment.
