To be sure, the Sabbath will be observed during that time, but by whom? By those Jewish people who find themselves in their land again and who set up their ancient worship once more. They do this not because they are obeying the responsibilities of a Tribulation economy, which includes worship on the Sabbath as a requirement. After all, many Jews today both in and out of Palestine observe the Sabbath, but that does not mean that we are no longer under the dispensation of Grace. God has not ordained this observance for today, nor will He in the tribulation period; therefore, its observance does not indicate a dispensational change.

God has more than two purposes even though He reveals more about His purposes for Israel and His purpose for the church than He does about the other groups.

What this means is not completely clear. (See the more complete discussion in chapter 9) However, it does seem to imply that the classic Israel-/church distinction is less clear.
