It was interesting that in your article you stated that dispensationalists believe that we are saved by faith but then you quoted Revelation10:12-15 which states in two places that we are judged by what we have done.

If I might offer a suggestion: first, the passage is found in Revelation 20, not Revelation 10 (just in case someone has difficulty is locating it).

As far as being “judged according to what we have done”. There are at least two explanations/interpretation that are entirely biblical for this:
(1) “what they have done” may refer to the acts of repentance and decision to surrender everything to Jesus and follow Him.
(2) “what they have done” may refer to the things one does after becoming a follower of Jesus, (i.e. the “…good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 NASB)).
Either of these explanations, and possible more, would alleviate the apparent contradiction and do it in a biblically consistent manner.
I hope this helps.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

Jack,
Thank you for this well-written and informative article. You managed to explain the core beliefs of Dispensationals in a fair way while also leading the reader back to the center of the Gospel…Jesus Christ. Thanks again, brother.
Yours in Christ,
Robert

Thank you brother. I am glad that many don’t divide over the non-essentials, much like you brother. May God richly bless you for your encouragement.
