"The present age, because of the extensive activities of the Holy Spirit, has rightfully been styled the dispensation of the Spirit" (Chafer v6 85).
2 Thessalonians 2:3-10
"It is clearly implied that were there no restrainer in the world the tide of evil would rise to incomprehensible heights" (Chafer v6 86).
"The removal of the Holy Spirit is the reversing of Pentecost" (Chafer v6 87).
"In other words, since there can be no separation between the Holy Spirit and the Church, when the great tribulation is reached either the Holy Spirit must remain here with the Church, which is an unscriptural notion, or the the Church must be removed with the Spirit from the world" (Chafer v6 87).
"When the Spirit is removed, the Church will be removed with Him. She cannot be left behind" (Chafer v6 88).
"The Scriptures never assert that the unsaved are hindered from being saved by failing to besorry for their sins" (Chafer v6 94).
"It is possible for the whole doctrine of repentance to be misunderstood and perverted, supposing that repentance is a sorrow for win rather than a change of mind about it" (Chafer v6 95).
2 Corinthians 4:3-4
"The Spirit's enlightenment is respecting one sin, and that is failure to receive Christ and His salvation" (Chafer v6 95).
"It seems all but impossible for men to accept the truth that all sin has been laid on Christ and that Christ has already endured their judgments in a manner which satisfies God even to infinity" (Chafer v6 96).
"The gospel does not present something for the unsaved to do, it rather presents something for them to believe; and needful, indeed, is the work of the Holy Spirit in enlightening those who are lost about the character and extent of sin that 'they believe not on me'" (Chafer v6 96).
2 Corinthians 5:14
"The three ages under consideration began with the age of the law, which was followed by the present age of grace, and this age, in turn, is to be followed by the thousand-year kingdom age" (Chafer v6 101).
"The Covenant theory can make no place for different divine purposes and corresponding ages of time. According to this teaching, Israel must merge into the Church and the Church must be the consummation of all previous earthly purposes" (Chafer v6 102)
