Many Christians who have escaped dispensationalism are still caught up, because they still believe two things.

  1. The final judgment is getting close.

  2. Things will carry on as they always have till then.

These beliefs have two implications.
  1. We are well through history on earth. Not much more is going to happen.

  2. We have seen the best that the Holy Spirit can do.

These hidden, but pervasive assumptions contribute to a lack of expectation among believers, but they are totally wrong. The scriptures tell us about some great things that God still has to do. The usual approach is to push them to after the second coming, but there is no good reason for doing that. If we just expect more of the same as we have had, that is what we will get.
