What is “dispensational salvation?”


“Dispensational salvation” is the false teaching that people at different times in history, have had different ways to be saved. For example, some would say that under the Old Testament law, people had to keep the law (good works) to be saved.

The Bible is clear that there has always only been one way to be saved, and that way is through faith in Christ. “TO HIM GIVE ALL THE PROPHETS WITNESS, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins” (Holy Bible, Acts 10:43). In the Old Testament, believers looked ahead in faith to Christ who would come and die for their sins. In the Church Age, we look back to Christ who has come and died for our sins. Salvation has always been by faith, looking to Christ completely to save us from our sins. Jesus said to the Jews, “Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad” (Holy Bible, John 8:56).

Have you seen Jesus as your only hope of salvation, and have you personally received Him by faith? “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (Holy Bible, John 1:12). Spend time each day reading the King James Bible.
