For the most part Dr. Missler's teaching is biblically sound and I have found few better. However, he is a staunch believer in Schofield's doctrines and I have seen on some of his Revelation videos where he finds scripture that simply disproves portions of Schofield's doctrine and he simply dismisses it saying it does not appear to agree with our doctrine and we know our doctrine is true. So while he is quite happy to use scripture to tear to shreds (his words) someone else's doctrines, he is not willing to allow the same word of God to shred his beliefs. That is a problem, but I have never found a single person who does not struggle with this problem from time to time. Why should we expect him to be any different?

Neither Schofield nor his teacher Darby actually created the doctrine that carries his name. That doctrine was created by a Jesuit doctor of theology, Francisco Ribera, during the Counter-Reformation in the 1500s. After the reformers, led by Martin Luther, started naming Catholicism as Babylon and the Pope as the Anti-Christ, the Pope commissioned several people to find alternate interpretations of the scriptures the reformers used to support their doctrines.

Darby discovered this doctrine in the 1800's and began teaching it. Schofield was his best known student. Schofield was funded by the World Zionist Movement to alter the beliefs of Christians so that they would be more favorable to an attitude of acceptance of the return of Jews to their traditional homeland. Thus Christian Zionism and a futurist interpretation of the book of Revelation came into Protestant theology. Portions of this theology are not at all biblical, and other portions take some serious twisting of scripture. 

Ironically various Pentecostal denominations, most of which are staunchly anti-Catholic and hate any thing that even remotely looks or sounds Catholic are the primary proponents of this doctrine which did not exist at all before Father Ribera created it.
