    What Would Jesus Do?

    When Charles Sheldon asked the question “What would Jesus do?”, he used the four accounts of Jesus’ earthly ministry to find his answer: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Careful doctrinal study tells us what Jesus did then is not something we are to do today.

    Many secular historians and archeologists, etc., also hold that Peter and Paul had preached different gospels.

    But as one individual often one-sided "one size fits all" - when convenient - recently put it - "what do numbers have to do with" this?

    Why You Can't Be Born Again

    Ever since Chuck Colson's popular biography being "born again" has been a mainstream euphemism for a salvation experience. Some have used "born again" as a way to separate the devout from the nominal Christian. When studied from the Bible rightly divided, "born again" is something that only Isrel could do. No Gentile could be born again.

    The Ethiopian Eunuch's Testimony

    The story of the eunuch in Acts 8 can seem strange, somewhat random, or out of place unless seen through the lens of mid-Acts dispensational right division. Why is there an account of an Ethiopian eunuch? Learn the prophetic importance of this man, and how it is missed unless you take a mid-Acts dispensational approach.

    5 Words Better Than Tongue Talking

    While there is no place or purpose for the supernatural power of tongues any longer in this dispensation there remains those who confuse the rest of us with their so-called power to speak in unknown tongues.

    God's Voice or Satan's Voice

    One of the biggest problems perpetuated by charismatic Pentecostal teaching concerns how God speaks to us. God's words are found in the Bible.

    2016 Ambassadors Seminar Details

    The theme for this year's Ambassadors Seminar is Christian Fundamentals. Can there be anything more counter-cultural in a time when the zeitgeist is to buck against anything that sounds institutional, rigid, or authoritative?

    Fundamental doctrines of Christianity are flippantly twisted as if it is Christ that must change not the culture. What affect do supposed traditional remnants of organized religion have on mid-Acts right division, the grace message, and the future of Christianity? Answer: Everything!

    Without these fundamental doctrines there is no such thing as the Christian faith! There is no need for right division or the mystery of Christ!

    Now more than ever we need to fortify the fundamentals of Christianity which are facing attack from within our culture, within the contemporary church, and among so-called grace teachers.

    Want to know what are fundamental Christian doctrines? Why they are called fundamental? It's time to reserve your seat at our Ambassadors Seminar and join us for a time of equipping soldiers to stand on the frontlines of service for our Lord Jesus Christ.

    For His glory and grace,

    Justin "ambassador/soldier" Johnson

    Simple!

    A "dispensation" is in regard to a "stewardship" that is given to man from God in order to carry out a specific task. Here are three quotes from the pen of Paul where he speaks of a "dispensation" that has been committed or given to him:

    "If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me toward you" (Eph. 3:2).

    "Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation of God which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God" (Col.1:25).

    "...a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me" (1 Cor.9:17).

    The "dispensation" which was committed to Paul is in regard to "God's grace", a "ministry", and a "gospel." Here Paul sums up his dispensational responsibility:

    "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God" (Acts 20: 24).

    In Bibliotheca Sacra, a journal published by Dallas Theological Seminary, Roy L. Aldrich quotes these three verses (Eph.3:2; Col.1:25; 1 Cor.9:17) and then says, "These passages use the word 'dispensation' (or 'stewardship') to describe the sacred commission or trust to preach the gospel" [emphasis added] (Aldrich, "A New Look at Dispensationalism," Bibliotheca Sacra, January-March, 1963, Vol.120, Number 477, p.43).

    There can be no doubt whatsoever that the event which marks the beginning of the "dispensation of grace" is the preaching of the "gospel of grace."

    The beginning of the dispensation of grace does not mark the time when men began to be saved by grace since from the beginning of time man has been saved by grace through faith.
