Since Israel has become a nation, in fulfillment of God’s promise to the descendants of Abraham, the next event to occur on the prophetic time line, according to dispensationalists, is the rapture of Christian believers. This occurs when Jesus Christ secretly returns to earth at the beginning of the seven-year tribulation period, the so-called seventieth week of Daniel, which dispensationalists do not see as a fulfilled messianic prophecy but as a future event (cf.
This produces the ironic situation in which those who speak about eschatology the most have the least to say. By limiting eschatology to the rapture and the millennium and by tying Old Testament prophecies to literal future fulfillments, the proper place of eschatology is eclipsed.
