Chapter 8b - Rule 3 of 7 - Rules that govern a new Dispensation's operation.

Remember all 7 Keys or guiding principles are common to all dispensations, and without all seven principles a dispensation does not change. Four of the principles would not come into operation if failure did not occur, but because of failure, the last three functions bring about the change with a new dispensation and a new stewardship Institution. However, if the last three have not or does not occurred, then the dispensation would be eternal, and the only one that will qualify that level of victory will be the Dispensation of the fullness of time, the Kingdom of God.

There are within a new Dispensation operating rules or laws that are unique to the new dispensation that was not found in the preceding dispensation. These new rules provide the guiding scope of the new dispensation in relationship to God's eternal plan for the following success of His plan. Including universal truths of the former dispensation's rules and laws will be carried over into a new dispensation.

Conjointly, in a new dispensation the ordained stewardship will be responsible to carry out the changes. The former leadership stewards may remain, but their responsibilities change according to God's plan for the new dispensation. The institution of stewards or messengers of a dispensation will be responsible to propagate the redemptive message according to the differences that are unique to the administrative rules of operation regarding the new dispensation.

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Innocence:
Since this was the first dispensation that everything came into existence as we know life, many of the following principles will carry forward to all dispensations. Likewise, some will be laws that will be modified as explained as they are carried out in future dispensations. (Example: the earth was created very-good, but with sin it became corrupted and decays, Genesis 1:31. Fellowship with God changed, but the universal truth that He wants us to have fellowship with Him still remains.)

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Conscience are:

  • Following sin humanity's relationship with God changed, God no longer walked with them in innocence, in the Garden of Eden, but now walked with them through an atonement or redemptive sacrifice in a fallen world, Romans 5:17-20. (Note: The walk changes through the different dispensations with the atonement sacrifice, and the introduction of the priesthood, prophets, kings, and fulfillment with Jesus Christ.)
  • Shortly after creation, Adam and Eve sinned, God expelled them from the Garden of Eden which was a perfect environment, Genesis 3:22-24. (Note: A perfect environment will not be seen again until the final dispensation, 'The Dispensation of the Fullness of Time', Ephesians 1:10, Revelation 21:1-4, 22-27, Revelation 22.).
  • After sin, God deals with humanity by the Holy Spirit, convicting the individual's consciences, Genesis 3:8-11 cf. 6:3. The Holy Spirit works with the human's conscience, and will continue working in accordance to the following dispensation operating. In the future dispensation called the Dispensation of the Promise, the Holy Spirit will work in conjunction with the Mosaic laws that will be added in convicting individuals of their responsibility to holiness. Prior to today's dispensation, the saint did not have the permanent indwelling of the Spirit, but He would come on an individual and then could leave, however that changed in the Dispensation of Grace, and the dispensations following where the Holy Spirit indwells believers unto the day of full redemption, Ephesians 1:13-14, John 14-16, Romans 8, Hebrews 9:14.
  • Regarding sin, humanity could no longer have the right to the Tree of Life in the perfect environment, Genesis 3:22. (The change will go through all the dispensations until the Eternal Kingdom called the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times, Revelation 22:1-6, Ephesians 1:10.)
  • Their diet consisted exclusively of the fruit of plants after leaving the Garden of Eden, which would last through the Dispensation of Conscience, and begin at the end of the Flood of Noah, when God instituted the rules for eating meat, meat was added to the diet in the rules given to Noah in the Dispensation of Human Government. Humanity originally was not a meat eater, Genesis 2:8,9,15-17,  (Eating meat will change through the dispensations, from eating all kinds of animals without the blood, Genesis 9:1-4 to eating only clean animals, and then today back to eating all kinds of animals, Leviticus 20:25-26. Animals that are classified as clean and unclean, were not to be eaten in the Dispensation of Promise. During the Dispensation of Grace humanity can again eat all kinds of animals, Romans 14, Colossians 2:15-23, Acts 10:9-15. The diet of Eden will not be back until the Millennial reign of Christ, and continuing into the eternal dispensation, Isaiah 11:1-9.)
  • Animals and humans were not feared, or killers of each other, there were animals who by creation were scavengers (unclean animals), whose purpose was to clean up the earth, but animals did not attack and eat each other until after the flood, Genesis 9;1-2 cf. Isaiah 11:1-6. Humans were to use animals for a blood sacrifice, but neither feared each other. (The change will continue through other dispensations until the Kingdom dispensation. Correspondingly, there is no record before the flood that animals, and humanity had a fear of each other, however, humans did offer blood sacrifices as God instituted as a requirement for a sin offering, Genesis 3:21-24, 4:1-15.)
  • From the point of sin, the transition into the Dispensation of Conscience began. The environment started to break down, and the physical bodies started to decay this would lead to death; besides that, human's livelihood would be by the sweat of one's efforts, struggling with weeds, thorns, thistles, and a man and woman's personal relationships to each other was effected, including the animals in their kingdom relationship to humans, Genesis 3:14-20, Romans 5:17-20, Romans 8:18-23.(The environment, the animal kingdom and the human's physical body will be changed again in the final dispensations.). Humanity died spiritually in his relationship to God, and their personal relationship with their own body, soul, and spirit, Ephesians 2:1-3, I Corinthians 2:14, Hebrews 4-12. After sin, human's flesh nature and their new environment leads their soul, instead of their spirit communicating in fellowship in accordance to God's leadership and will.
  • Humanity began to die physically, even though previously he had enjoyed longevity of life for a short time, humanity now dies, Genesis 4:8, Genesis 5. (The change, in the next dispensation would be a shorter life span, and will not change again to longevity until the Millennial reign of Christ, Isaiah 65:20, and in the eternal dispensation a human will live forever either in the Lake of Fire or in Heaven, I Peter 1:3-5, I John 5:13, Revelation 20:10-15, 21:6-9).
  • Humanity at this time had to offer an animal sacrifice. God provided the first animal sacrifice for humanity when He sacrificed an animal for Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, providing a blood sacrifice, and a covering of clothing for their nakedness, Genesis 3:21, Hebrews 9:22. A blood sacrifice of an animal was needed for the payment of sin until Jesus Christ could provide the one and only blood sacrifice sufficient to meet the just requirement for sin, Hebrews 9, Ephesians 1:7, Colossians 1:14,20. (The process of offering the blood sacrifice changed through the dispensations, yet a blood sacrifice was always required.)
  • With the need of a sacrifice, starting in the Dispensation of Conscience, humans became killers of animals for the purpose of a sin sacrifice that continued until Christ's finished work on the cross, Hebrews 9.
  • Humanity had to communicate, passing along the requirements of an animal blood sacrifice as the just payment for their sin. Humans were responsible to pass the knowledge of the blood sacrifice to the next generation, informing them how the sacrifice was to be done. The attitude of the person giving the offering, was giving it as sacrifice by faith, out of one's personal conviction for it to be accepted. At this time, the family head was primarily responsible to be the priest of his family, (an example is seen in the book of Job, and his conviction of caring out the sacrifices for his family, Job 1:1-5), Hebrews 11:4, Hebrews 9:22, Deuteronomy 6:6-9. The ordained institution changes with additional laws relating to offering the sacrifice for sin; it changes through the dispensations from family head to the priesthood, and finally to priesthood of Christ Jesus and His finished work of redemption for the remission of sin, Hebrews 10:10, Hebrews 9:12, Hebrews 7:27, Romans 6:10.)
  • This dispensation God directly and alone judged humanity for murder, showing the direct governing Theocracy, ruled from God, the example of Cain and Able show this in Genesis 4:9-16. God's direct rule changes in the next dispensations where government was established by God and organized by humans. This government by humans was ordained and commissioned to carry out God's rules. Humanity was to be subordinate to the supreme rules of His word, being subordinate until He sets up His Earthly Kingdom, where He personally rules directly on earth as the supreme head of the world's government with His glorified saints, Isaiah 9:7. All nations of the world will be taught and under the Messiah's rule as governor, Isaiah 2:2-4, Daniel 7:14, Matthew 25:31-46.

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Human Government are:

  • The earth atmosphere and living environment changes from a canopy of vapor over the earth to no canopy of vapor. The oceans, and mountains appeared, certain animals died off, and the rainbow occurred as a promise from God, with the rain falling and watering the earth instead of the dew, Genesis 2:5-6, 7:11, 9:12-17. (See: Genesis Flood. The Genesis Flood the Biblical Record and its Scientific Implications, John C. Whitcomb: Book.
  • Some animals started to eat other animals for food, and this will continue until the 'Millennial' reign of Christ, Genesis 9:1-8 cf. Isaiah 11:1-6
  • The diet of humanity now included meat from any animal along with the fruit of plants and trees, Genesis 9:3.
  • A human could be executed by capital punishment by other humans, showing God instituted human government, Genesis 9:5-6. We see this time humans had established a city community, and Noah and his children had been influenced by it, along with the knowledge of a farming community Genesis 9:20, Genesis 10:4, 8-12, 13-15.
  • Human's governed themselves, being accountable to God, and God the Holy Spirit as He contends with the individual through his conscience, Genesis 6:3. The Holy Spirit's contending with humanity continues today, and well into the future, Genesis 6:3, Acts 7:51, Ephesians 4:30-31, I Thessalonians 5:19.
  • Within the Dispensation of Human Government a priesthood office is given, but little is said as to how it operated inside the Theocracy. In the transition period of the next dispensation, scripture reveals the priesthood existence, Genesis 14:18-20, Exodus 3:1.
  • Humanity no longer had longevity of life, for his life span became shorter than the previous dispensation, Genesis 11.
  • God promised and gave a covenant to Noah, called the Noahic covenant relating to the earth and humanity, Genesis 9:9-17. The covenant related to the earth that humanity would be a recipient by covenant, and with the rainbow a sign of the change given. This promise is made in the covenant he promised to Noah that includes other promises until the end of the earth. Note: Genesis 8:18-22, He states as long as this world lasts, opening the door for the understanding, a change in the future would come on the earth, the old earth would pass away for a New one will come at the end of the Dispensation of the Kingdom as revealed in Scripture, Revelation 21:1.
  • Rules that God made for the Dispensation of Human Government, He would not curse the ground or smite everything again with a worldwide flood as a punitive judgment, Genesis 6:5 cf. Genesis 8:21. Therefore, the punitive judgments of future dispensations would be different for humanity's failure.
  • Punitive Judgment for this dispensation, humanity was scattered across the world experiencing change in their languages, in locations that God determined, and possibly the change in skin color, and features we see today in different people-groups. They formed nations and communities, and then fell into scriptural silence from this point of scriptural revelation, with the exception when they came in to contact with God's chosen people through Abraham in the next dispensation, the Dispensation of Promise.

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Promise are:

  • Within Genesis 10:25 the meaning that the earth was divided is a reference to God's judgment of the former people in the dispensation of Human Government. We see in Genesis 10, references to different languages, and the scattering into other areas 10:5, 10:18, 10:20. In Genesis 11 the languages and the earth's scattering was a result of the final sin of the Tower of Babel, it started the transition period, beginning the Dispensation of Promise where God is choosing a people-group for His messengers of His message to the world, Genesis 12:1-3.
  • God chooses an individual Abram, and Abraham's descendants through the union of Sarah, (Isaac), and chose him to workout His dispensation for the world, Genesis 21:11-12, 12:1-7. To Abram himself he would be the father of many nations that related to the future of the Lord Jesus Christ coming to earth for the redemption of humanity for all those who would trust Christ by faith as Abraham did in his lifetime. Abram name change was part of this promise given to him personally, Genesis 17:1-8, and his descendants possessing the land of the Canaanites forever, Romans 4, Genesis 18:17-19, 24:7, 28:10-22. Abraham's personnel promise was to be fulfilled through Abraham's personal descendants, Israel where our Christ Jesus came from, and fulfilled the provision to the world for redemption - making Abraham the Father of faith for many nations Romans 4, cf. Genesis 22:15-19.

    This world was to bless Abraham and his descendants, (Isaac, Jacob whose name was changed to Israel, the twelve sons of Israel and Christ Jesus as Lord and King), and by doing this, they would receive the blessings of God. For the world to be 'saved' they needed desperately to accept the God of his chosen people, Isaiah 56:1-8 (example the book of Ruth a Moabite, Ruth 1:16). The prophetic promise of Genesis 3:15 the Christ child Jesus was passed down to Abraham, and his descendants through the great-great-grandson Judah, Genesis 49:9-12 (The promise 'One' would come through Judah.). A universal principle - the world can be blessed today through the chosen instrument God has ordained, furthermore the chosen instruments are to bless the world by their living as God has directed. The instruments within the institutions have changed through the dispensations from the family head, to the Nation of Israel, to the Body of Christ, and then to our Lord Jesus Christ sitting on the throne of David in the Dispensation of the Earthly Kingdom.

  • God chose a land for His chosen people (Israel) to live their lives starting with this dispensation, the Dispensation of Promise, Genesis 12:5-7, 13:14-17, 15:6-8, 17-20, 17:8, and all individuals in the world would be blessed in their treatment of this Nation. The acceptance of the promised people of God, would bring salvation, (the nation of Israel is in the Mediterranean area or Middle East) Isaiah 56:1-8. This land received from God became the chosen people's land, making it His Nation. They were to spend an ordained time (430 years) in Egypt until the sin of the inhabitants of that land reached its fullness of sin; then God's judgment would come upon the inhabitants of the land using Abraham's descendants as His instruments of judgment, Genesis 15:12-16.
  • Land was given to the Nation of Israel in the dispensation of Promise by God before the descendants of Ishmael were born, and as we read the account, we find that Ishmael's descendants were going to be a problem as they lived among the Israelites, however ownership of the land would belong strictly to the Nation of the Jewish people,
    • (Today we still see this struggle occurring, and governments need to consider this truth when attempting to settle the Middle East problems, Genesis 16:1-12, Genesis 21:1-21, Genesis 25:12-18.
    • Abraham had other children from women other that Sarah and Hagar, but there is no record of the gifts or blessing Abraham gave them, only that he sent them away to the east, and he gave all his possessions to his son Isaac which God confirmed, Genesis 25:1-6, 26:1-6.
    • Today when trying to settle the conflicts in the Middle east one needs to take into account the relationship of the children of  Esau who were to be subordinate to the children of Jacob, showing once again that the land of Israel was for the descendants through Abraham and wife Sarah, Isaac and wife Rebecca, Jacob and wives Rachel and Leah, and their handmaidens Bilhah, and Zilpah that birthed the twelve sons, Genesis 25:21- 23, 27:29-30, 25:23-26, Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulum, Joseph, and Benjamin.)
  • God chose this nation Israel in the Dispensation of Promise, in order to bring the New Covenant into fulfillment, completing the work of redemption with the Savior of the world, Galatians 4:4, John 1:11-12. God gave them the seal of circumcision as a promised seal to the Nation of Israel, which was an everlasting seal of the promise given in the Dispensation of Promise for Israel, Genesis 17:8-27, Genesis 21:1-5. Circumcision was a requirement for this dispensation, and it will cease to be a physical requirement in the next dispensation, the Dispensation of Grace, today's economic program, I Corinthians 7:19, Galatians 5:6; 6:13,15, Colossians 2:11.
  • One of the main reasons the Law of Moses was added to the Dispensation of Promise, Galatians 3:16-20 was for self-awareness, revealing to the individual their sinfulness.
  • The priesthood of the Levites took the place of the family heads as priest, including any priests from the former dispensation, (Melchizedek and Moses' father-in-law, Exodus 3:1, Exodus 18 were the last recorded priests before Israel's priesthood was mentioned in scripture, Genesis 14:18-20, Hebrews 7:1). (The dispensation’s operation changes, however human's conscience remains from the previous dispensation, and its laws are added and written down. New revelation is given from God for humanities obedience through judges, prophets, priests, and kings within the government.)
  • New prophets emerged from the Nation of Israel, not other nations (Balaam was the last prophet mentioned before the Nation of Israel, He was a disobedient prophet from the former dispensation, Numbers, Chapters 22-24, 31. Abraham - God calls a prophet marking the new dispensation as having prophets Genesis 20:7.
  • Leadership through kings was developed to lead Israel, the promised Nation, until the King of Kings, Christ Jesus our Lord would sit on David's throne forever, Genesis 35:10-11, Deuteronomy 17:14-18, Judges 17:6, I Samuel 2:10. The Theocracy under God's direct leadership was rejected by Israel in favor of a government ruled by a King I Samuel 8:6-10, 10:24, David was the chosen king by God and his descendants after him, II Chronicles 9:7-8 within the Dispensation of Promise until Messiah would take His appointed possession, I Samuel 28:17, II Samuel 2:4, 5:12, II Samuel 7, Isaiah 9:6-7, Luke 1:33, Isaiah 6:1, Revelation 17:14, 19:16
  • The sanctifying walk of faith changes through the dispensations from the direct Theocracy government to the kingship government and the Levitical priest office. In the Dispensation of Promise the Levitical Priesthood is spelled out in the Mosaic Law given at Mt Sinai. The atonement sacrifice and faith was offered through the priest's office until the finished work of the high priest Jesus Christ and his office.
  • The government rules, and atoning sacrifice rules given under the Dispensation of Promise were to be exercised for the people by the Levitical priesthood, superintendent through prophets and governed by kings. Even though in the gospel period of time, Israel did not have a king, because of the Roman ruling judgment on the nation, the priesthood still operated, (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John). During this period, the redemption for humanity and faith was redirected to God by the mediator Jesus Christ, I Timothy 2:5, Hebrews 8:6, Hebrews 9:15, Hebrews 12:24. The Lord Jesus brought the fulfillment of the atonement offering, and the end of the Levites priesthood, making redemption through a new priesthood, the priesthood of Christ Jesus that was a final completion, a once and for all an eternal offering and sacrifice given by God Himself, John1:1,14, Hebrews 8,9, Hebrews 5,6:13-20, for the payment. It is and was the just requirement for sins of humans whenever an individual receives it personally by faith.

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Grace are:

  • The Mystery dispensation is overlaying the Dispensation of Promise, (Ephesians 3:1-12; Romans 16:24-27; Colossians 1:25-28 (See chapter on the Dispensation of Grace).

  • The Nation of Israel's relationship to God and the world changed. Israel as a Nation was no longer the only dispenser of the New Covenant of God. Israel no longer has this unique position they once held. All races, nationalities and sex have become responsible to God in carrying out this administration with the New Covenant for salvation and sanctification, II Corinthians 5:18-21.

  • However, scripture teaches that God is not finished with the Nation of Israel; nations today are still blessed or cursed based on their treatment of Israel that is a continuous principle. In fact, God is using today's dispensation as a judgment on Israel before the final judgment of the Tribulation period, hoping that many Jewish people will accept Jesus Christ as savior and Lord, Acts 15:13-19, Acts 7:51-56, 13:45,46, 18:6, 28:25-28, Romans 10-11. After completion of this dispensation today, God will finish His dealings promised to the Nation of Israel by covenant, Romans 11:25-27. This mystery dispensation is a continuation of the time of the Gentiles that is bring judgment on the Nation of Israel for their disobedience revealed in the Old Testament that begun with the Nation of Israel splitting and going into captivity that started with the Northern 10 tribes being conquered and going into captivity by the Assyrians, and shortly afterwards the Southern tribes by Babylon, Romans 11, II Kings 18:1, 9-12, 33-34, Ezekiel 23.

  • The time of the Gentiles will come to an end with Christ Jesus' returning to earth at the end of the tribulation period at the end of the transition, beginning the earthly Kingdom dispensation. The judgment on the Nation of Israel resulted in their losing their stewardship exclusively, which is part of the mystery against Israel and not previously revealed. The stewardship was given to all humanity through the Church called His Body today.

  • Today's dispensation is making all believers part of receiving the spiritual blessings that were Israel's alone previously, Romans 15:27, Ephesians 1:3, Galatians 4:26. Today's believer have a personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Ephesians 1:13, Philippians 2:12-16, Romans 8:16, John 1:12 (children of God).

  • Believers today wait for the glorification of our bodies in the rapture the last trump, ending this dispensation, (Please notice it's not the ending of the world or the ending of the tribulation period, but the last trump for the mystery dispensation.), uniting the spirit and body together with their eternal characteristics, I Thessalonians 4:13-18, I Corinthians 15:51-52, I Corinthians 15:35, 38, 42-55, Philippians 3:21, Matthew 22:30, Luke 20:34-36. When Christ returns to rule on earth and reign in His Kingdom, believers will experience their portion of the promise given them.

  • Believers today are receiving, Philippians 3:20 their spiritual portion of the covenant and God's promises along with Israel, Ephesians 2:6-13 and in the Millennial reign of Christ, all believers in today's dispensation will be Christ's representatives to the Nations including Angels in their glorified state, I Corinthians 6:2,3. Believers today, of this dispensation will be in their glorified bodies after being raptured that occurred before the Dispensation of the Kingdom, (Note, I Corinthians 6:2,3 speaks of a future time, and the judgment will be needed at this time in the future, where then need is present. At this time all believers will be in the Millennial Reign that is ruled by Christ Jesus' Kingship here on earth. Remember there will be no need for judgment of humans and Angels in the Eternal Kingdom because the punitive judgment of the Great White Throne judgment will have already occurred, Revelation 20:10 -15 and chapters 21, and 22).

  • All believers since the beginning of the world will be resurrected at the Rapture receiving their rewards as promised them at the time of their life here on earth, which is in accordance to the dispensation they lived. The believer's resurrection in not the mystery, but the time of the resurrection is, since it was not foretold in the other dispensations when it would occur; the Rapture ends the Dispensation of Grace, today's dispensation that is part of the mystery revelation given to the Apostle Paul, Ephesians 3:2-3.
  • All humanity in the Dispensation of Grace are individually responsible to God for faith and propagation of the gospel of the New Covenant, I Timothy 2:19, Titus 3:8, Ephesians 2:8-10, Romans 1:16, 10:9-13, I Corinthians 1:2, 18, John 17, II Corinthians 5:18-22.

  • Equality makes this dispensation unique between the Nation of Israel and other Nations, which is part of the mystery not revealed in prophecy, Ephesians 2:14-22 making 'one new' entity the Body of Christ, V 15-18,
    His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross".
    All of us can and need to approach God the same way through Christ Jesus, and establish a local church according to scriptures that relate to the dispensation's rules, Romans 12, I Corinthians 12, Ephesians 4, Hebrews 10:25, I Timothy 3, Titus 1.

  • The call out believers or church today are the called out people of God, who represent Him as His Body in this world. The rules of a personal nature are involved, believers are responsible before the world today to live as our Lord would have them, Colossians 2:6, 7, Colossians 1:10. Believers are not a subject under a king as Israel was, but representatives of His Body, the Body is not responsible for setting up the a earthly kingdom, Ephesians 1:22-23, Ephesians 5:8, Colossians 1:18, I Corinthians 12:27. However, being representatives of His Body does not negate believers today to ignore the characteristics of the spiritual Kingdom that will come on earth in the future, and then the heavenly Kingdom, but we are to live the universal principles of holiness, justice, righteousness and care. Believers today are part of God's eternal Kingdom. We are to teach the Kingdom coming from the correct dispensational understanding as He opens our eyes and reveals the truths found in the scriptures.

  • Therefore, all humanity today are part of the mystery hid in God that was not in prophecy in the Old Testament. The believer of the Old Testament are part of the mysteries given at the same time the blessings are given to the Church called His Body, and both Old Testament believers are part of the future scope of God rewards given at the Rapture, II Corinthians 5:9-10.When discussing the Dispensation of Grace you find a uniqueness, revealed in the Pauline epistles for them. Paul who wrote the majority of the books of the New Testament, thirteen for sure and possibly 14 of the 26 books of the New Testament, that reveals this uniqueness in the Dispensation of Grace for today, Romans 11:25, 16:25, I Corinthians 2:7, 15:51, Ephesians 1:9, 3:1-14, 5:32, 6:19, Colossians 1:26-27, 2:2, 4:3, I Timothy 3:9.

Some of the changes found in the Dispensation of Kingdom the 1000 year reign of Christ (Millennium):

  • The seven year tribulation judgment, the wrath of God is poured out on the earth and humanity. All non-believers are destroyed in the judgment before going into the earthly kingdom of Christ, Revelations 19:11-21.
  • Satan is confined to the Abyss or Bottomless Pit for 1000 years, Revelation 20:1-3.
  • The Nation of Israel is back in its proper relationship with God and restored to leadership in the dispensation.
  • Jesus Christ receives His Kingdom sitting on the throne of David ruling over the Nation of Israel and the world.
  • The Nation of Israel receives their promised earthly Kingdom. These earthly promises are fulfilled to Old Testament believers in their glorified bodies, and those who are living during the 1000 are participating in the promises give to the chosen people, who are awaiting to receive their glorified bodies.
  • The world is under Christ's authority when He sits on the throne of David here on earth. The Nation Israel with the glorified Body of Christ beleivers are set up as rulers and judges over the nations of men and Angels fulfilling the Body of Christ's promises with Israel, Ephesians 2, I Corinthians 6:2-3. The Body will probably be scattered throughout the nations ruling and responsible for the delivering of the domestic products to the Nation of Israel under Christ ruler-ship, who are still in their natural bodies, (also old testament believers since Adam and believers killed in the seven-year tribulation are included in the reign of Christ in their glorified bodies ruling and reigning, Revelation 20:4,5).
  • The Mountain of the Lord Isaiah 2:2-5, (Underlining is for easy reference) "In the last days the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and all nations will stream to it. Many peoples will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob. He will teach us his ways, so that we may walk in his paths." The law will go out from Zion, the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore. Come, O house of Jacob, let us walk in the light of the LORD, Isaiah 60:1-18." and
    Isaiah 11, "The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him—the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of power, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD - and he will delight in the fear of the LORD. He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth. He will strike the earth with the rod of his mouth; with the breath of his lips he will slay the wicked.  Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. The wolf will live with the lambthe leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his place of rest will be glorious. In that day the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the remnant that is left of his people from Assyria, from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt, from Cush, from Elam, from Babylonia, from Hamath and from the islands of the sea. He will raise a banner for the nations and gather the exiles of Israel; he will assemble the scattered people of Judah from the four quarters of the earth. Ephraim's jealousy will vanish, and Judah's enemies will be cut off; Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah, nor Judah hostile toward Ephraim. They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia to the west; together they will plunder the people to the east. They will lay hands on Edom and Moab, and the Ammonites will be subject to them. The LORD will dry up the gulf of the Egyptian sea; with a scorching wind he will sweep his hand over the Euphrates River. He will break it up into seven streams so that men can cross over in sandals. There will be a highway for the remnant of his people that is left from Assyria, as there was for Israel when they came up from Egypt," Romans 9:27, 28.
  • Isaiah 1:26, 2:2-5, 9:1-7, Isaiah 60:1-18 Israel restored to full leadership and the world is being blessed and ruled through Christ's reign.
  • Longevity of life is restored. Those born in the dispensation who rejected Christ and his authority will be judged by the age of 100, Isaiah 65:19-21, There will be no death in the next dispensation so this prophecy is referring to the Dispensation of the earthly Kingdom.

Changes found in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times - the Eternal Kingdom are:

  • With the transition into the Eternal Kingdom Satan will be released for a short period at the end of the former dispensation where he gathers all those who were born in the 1000 years, who rejected Christ Jesus and His authority in the Battle of Gog and Magog, Revelation 20:7-10. They will march against Christ, his Kingdom, and Jesus Christ will quench and destroy this rebellion by the word of His mouth, bringing to an end the rebellion and Satan, followed directly by the eternal punitive judgment of the Great White Throne Judgment, Revelation 20:11-15. This will end the transition bringing into operation the full operation of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Time that is eternal.
  • A perfect environment that had not been since the Garden of Eden in the first dispensation is established, Ephesians 1:10, Revelation 21:1-4, 22-27, Revelation 22.
  • There is a new heaven and new earth for the former one has passed away. In the new heaven and new earth, there will be no sea, there is no sun, moon or stars because Christ Jesus lights this new world, the New Jerusalem will be there and the Tree of Life appears, Revelation 22:2, 14. Isaiah 65:17-28, 66:22-24.
  • There will be no more death, sorrow, sin or failure only the redeemed believers will be there, the animal kingdom will be delivered from experiencing decay and destruction, Revelation 21:1-4, Romans 8:18-23.
  • Hell gave up all the dead who is in it, which rejected God's plan, they were not written in the Book of Life, and they were judged at the judgment seat of Christ Jesus in the event of the Great White Throne. They were found guilty from the books written, the Word of God, the Book of Life, and Revelation 21:27, John 12:48, 5:39 other books that were not named. The nonbelievers from the beginning of the creation are cast into the Lake of Fire forever. Hell that is inside the core of this earth, (compare Ephesians 4:9,10, I Peter 3:18-20, Revelation 21:1) is thrown into the Lake of Fire that is an eternal judgment that never ends, where Satan and his angels were thrown into at the end of the Battle of Gog and Magog. The Lake of Fire was created for Satan and his representatives, Revelation 20:10-15, Mark 9:48, Isaiah 66:24, Luke 16:24, 25, Jude 1:5-7,14-16, Matthew 24:51, Matthew 25:41, 46, 30.
  • There will be no nonbelievers, no evil, unrighteousness or anything unclean in the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times, called the eternal Kingdom or the heaven, Revelation 21:8, 27.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ delivers everything unto the Father as finished, and He becomes submissive with His authorized responsibility, and puts himself under the Father in keeping with the chain of command revealed in scripture. God shows order in command and in his dispensational schematic over the history of humanity. God is one, and within this one God, there is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each transcending in their unique responsibilities that God determined in His eternal counsel and within Himself, (a plural noun found for the one God in the Hebrew in Genesis is 'Elohim' showing the trinity in one personage), Psalm 8:6, I Corinthians 15:27,28.
