The Church That Is Left Behind
A significant pillar of twentieth century dispensationalism, is the postponement doctrine of the kingdom of God. This indiscriminate futurism has caused great damage and robbed the gospel of its power in the lives of believers for years. John the Baptist and Jesus both clearly identified the kingdom with the era of the Holy Spirit. At no time anywhere in Scripture, was the coming of the kingdom made conditional on a Jewish response or event. What more effective strategy could the enemy use than to have Christians believe they should be in passive waiting mode? Has our failure to proclaim a full and accurate gospel of the kingdom, left nations untouched, still plagued by disease, famine and corruption, despite decades of "evangelism"? An eschatology of victory awaits a victorious church, that engages with the Holy Spirit in this present apostolic season. Creation has been waiting in eager expectation for the manifestation of the sons of God. What are the sons waiting for? Are you ready to respond? In this book Kobus Swart resolutely confronts the erroneous doctrinal stronghold of eschatology. For centuries the church has been imprisoned and restrained in fulfilling its governmental mandate because of inaccurate interpretations of the end times. This is an invaluable resource in identifying and unveiling deceptive eschatological ideologies and presenting a more accurate understanding of the end of the age.

Theologically sharp and sound and a must read
If you have issues with what many may consider to be the church, this may help you realise why.
If you are part of the church, and are under the impression that one day God's going to come and rescue you from all the bad people and bad stuff and sit you in a city of gold somewhere where you will be playing a harp; this book will challenge the very roots of what you may be looking for.
Reading this book, and spending time discussing it with the author, has completely revolutionised my attitude towards my life; past present and future.
