The dispensationalists seem to think there is plenty of detail, esp. in the OT.

Some, not all. The lunatic fringe as basis for judging the rest isn't a fair argument.

We've been down this road already back in 2004-5.

There are significant issues with the premil scheme that need to be addressed, such as the matter of who exactly inhabits the earthly millennium, the issue of sin, it effects and resolution, etc.

All of those things have been addressed in premillennialism - both historic (i.e. Ladd) and plenty with the dispensational side.

J.O. Buswell did some work on it as well (Bible Presbyterian Churches). Familiar with him ?

Our course the text does not support that concept:



One typically does not refer to a characteristic, "restraining influence", as "he".

My hand in the way of a falling bookshelf is a restraining influence from the shelf falling to the ground. Yet, if you were to describe it, you would call me 'he who holds up the bookshelf'. :)

Context established and very possible, thanks.

I doubt if, this side of eternity, the Church is even meant to have it figured out. That's part of what it means to live by faith, I guess.
.

Amen, and Amen.

Since when was it wrong to say 'I don't know' about things we simply don't know?
