Why is PWMI harbouring serious dispensationalist error?

I respect F B Meyer and the current brethren at PWMI and their stand for many precious and important truths, not least their vigilance for the Lord's return.
We disagree on the rapture, and this is exactly why the Apostle wrote 2 Thess.2.1.
However in promoting the writings of a man deeply influenced by dispensationalism, they seriously err on the question of sacrifices in the literal Temple to come.


Arnold Fruchtenbaum in 'The Footsteps of the Messiah', tells us he takes the narrative of Ezekiel's Temple 'literally'. It is history in prospect.

He tells us the animal sacrifices are literal and real and commanded by God.

This is dangerous heresy.

He claims:

1.They will be a memorial of Christ.

Hebrews says they are a memorial of sin, 'But in those ‭sacrifices there is‭ a remembrance again ‭made‭ of sins every year.‭ ‭For ‭it is‭ not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.‭' Heb.10.3-4

2. They will be the means of restoring fellowship for saints.

That is blasphemy. It robs from Calvary. Nothing can restore us to God but the death of His Son. ' Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.‭ ‭By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once ‭for all‭.‭' Heb.10.9-10

3. They provide ritual cleansing for uncleanness. He cites with approval one who says,' ceremonial cleansing is an ongoing need' requiring new sacrifices.

It is unclear what he means by this. Is there any uncleanness without sin? If so, where is it in the Bible? If not, to suggest ongoing atonement is necessary is a direct insult to God, it is to claim the Lord was lying when He declared, 'it is finished'.

'‭And every priest stands daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:‭ ‭But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God' Heb.10-11-12

PWMI needs to repent of its robbery of the unique glory of Christ and purge this false teaching from its midst. I'm afraid it is still leavened with the errors of dispensationalism, some of which are deeply heretical, like the diabolical notion that Jews can be saved without faith in the Messiah and so should not be preached to about Messiah or repentance, reportedly held by CUFI's leaders.
