The key or guiding principle, number seven of a dispensation is the Irreversible Punitive Judgment climax from God. The finality of these judgments are from God, some direct, and the others by using humanity or nature. These judgments are more than disciplinary actions, they are permanent, final, and punitive actions from God, bringing about the final change, and advancing revelation to a new dispensation in God's eternal plan.
Remember all seven Keys or guiding principles have their unique purpose in all dispensations that bring about the changing, and without all seven principles operating in a dispensation, it will not change. These principles within a dispensation discussed through the book are, the universal rules of God, the modified rules, the new rules for the dispensation, His choice for the stewardship, and then comes when God's long-suffering comes to it end, the final three principle occur, the failure, the transition, and ending with the irreversible punitive judgment, and when all seven fulfill their purpose a new dispensation takes full control.
Key seven is the last key ending a dispensation. The events of the punitive judgment, brings the dispensation to a close, and the new one takes full operation, leaving behind a residue of the old dispensation that will disappear. The Irreversible Punitive Judgment from God occurs after God has exercised His long-suffering for a time, directed towards his chosen steward vessels, and patently waiting for humanities repentancece, Romans 2:4-6, II Peter 3:9-10.
However, when they do not repent, the transition begins, ending with the punitive judgment. The New dispensation that started at the beginning of the transition remains throughout the transition into its infancy, until the completion of the irreversible punitive judgment that ends the old dispensation, at that moment in time the new dispensation takes full operating force.
Irreversible: permanent, irreparable, irretrievable, unalterable, Irrevocable, irremediable, irreversible.
Judgment: ruling, decision, finding, verdict, sentence, conclusion, result, decree.
Long-suffering: forgiving, resigned, tolerant, accommodating, patient, selfless.
Punitive: disciplinary, castigatory, penal, corrective, retaliatory, retributive, retributory, punishing.
Wrath: anger, rage, fury, ire, madness, displeasure, vexation, wroth, displeased, sad, indignation, grieved.
The consequence of His wrath is reckoning, punishment, and death. The word that best describes God's wrath needs to be chosen according to the context of the Scripture and God's love, and furthermore all the irreversible punitive judgment can be described as God's wrath in response to what type of punitive judgment, duration, and changes.
The following six dispensations end with an irreversible punitive judgment, with their corresponding Scripture Verses Scripture Verses documenting the ending of each dispensation. Notice, the seventh dispensation does not fail, it goes on for eternity, (The Dispensation of the Fullness of Time).
1. In the Dispensation of Innocence, humanity's failure of disobedience brought judgment that ends the dispensation, and the final judgment event was the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, Genesis 3:22-24. Along with the defilement of creation and humanity, Adam and Eve, who were the representatives of the human race, brought the punitive judgment on the whole human race and creation, from innocence to defilement, Romans 5 and 8. The expulsion climax of this judgment comes from God directly without using the instrument of humanity, in bringing about the irreversible punitive judgment.
God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden, and commanded the entrance to be guarded by an angel called a Cherubim, thereby, there was no ability for humanity to enter on their own volition, Genesis 3:24. Their personnel walk with God changed, and the potential of eating from the tree of Life was gone without death first, and the potential of the eternal state of redemption.
The sin of disobedience was the trigger that brought about the destructive action. Before the trigger, leading up to the failure, there was the ability of Adam and Eve to move in one direction or the other. God created, and instituted the ability for humanity to be able to make a cognitive choice. Prior to the eating of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil humanity was given the choice to eat from two trees in the Garden of Eden, sadly the one they chose was forbidden to eat, and the other one they could have eaten freely was the Tree of Life. All the way to this present day humanity has had the ability to choose, called free-will.
Other actions Adam and Eve demonstrated was, a lack of trust, they truly did not trust God, and have confidence in His judgment. Instead they exercised a lack of trust by choosing to act upon the lie of Satan, and by their behavior accusing God that He could not be trusted, and He was deliberately withholding something good from them, therefore He was a liar regarding the results of eating of the forbidden tree, and by not trusting in God when He said, “humanity would die if they ate from the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.” The result of their action sent a lying message to humanity, the message, humanity knows what is better for them than their creator.
The result was a refusal of submission to the chain of command, God's authority. Instead of obedience to God they followed and believed the lie of an angel cherubim, Satan, and in doing so, they showed their own desire to be in command, taking on a sinful nature that passed inherently to the human race. Their noncompliance brought about rebellion and disobedience to God's plan.
The lack of trust, resulted in not making a correct choice, causing disobedience, showing a lack of love to their creator, God, and the one who sustains their life, who created them in His image. God's love has been offended, He created humanity to have purpose, to work, sustaining family life, and community of relationships with each other and Him. God lovingly gave humanity the innate command to subdue the earth, bringing it under control by an exertion of his will, in accordance to His righteousness and holiness.
Their discontentment shows ingratitude to the God of creation, the One who sustains all life, and is to be glorified. God desiring to have His creation in harmony with Him and others.
Humanity was given a perfect Garden, the earth was without fault, then sin occurred, and the punitive judgment, caused creation to long for its redemption, without it decaying, and death that continues up to this present day, Romans 8:18-23.
God's wrath can be defined as a disciplinary event, in that the action did not annihilate humanity. In His long-suffering he accommodated humanities sin by the provision of a sin covering of atonement, and clothing them in his love, I John 4:19, Genesis 3:21, Romans 5:6-11. He demonstrated patience that only an all-powerful God could perform. God shows selflessness since he could have annihilated all his creation and start again, but he sought to redeem humanity back to Himself.
Humanity is the recipient of God's mercy and grace, giving humanity the option to be clothed in his righteousness through the work He performed, by the giving fully of himself for the justice required for the sin of humanity, providing the redemption sacrifice needed, for every human, Romans 5:6-12, Romans 5:6-12, and he offers it for each individual, who makes it a choice to be received from God, forgiving each man and woman of sin, and giving them a personal kinship with Him.
He concludes with a new dispensation taking full control, showing His excellent mercy and grace, one that he had already planned in eternity past for humanity; His ruling was with irrevocable events in the environment to prevent eternal destruction, protecting humanity, for if they had stayed in the Garden of Eden and ate of the Tree of Life, they would have remained in their fallen state for all eternity, not being redeemable, and spending eternity in the Lake of Fire with Satan.
Before moving unto the next dispensation, we need to briefly discuss and look at the angels of God. God created the Angels to minister to humanity, who would willingly inherit salvation, Hebrews 1:7, 14. Angels knew their responsibility from creation, but Lucifer in his pride gave a false and deceitful directive and recommendation to Eve, in the Garden of Eden, lying to Eve about the truth of God's command, Satan's sin is recorded in Ezekiel 28:14-15, Isaiah 14:12-15, and Genesis 3:1-7, 14,15. Lucifer, also called Satan, was in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve, and they did not demonstrate any improper expression to his appearance, Ezekiel 28:11-15. A third of the Angel fell and were corrupted by Satan, Revelation 12:3-4, 9, Revelation 1:20, Jude 1:6, fallen Angels are called demons, stars, or spirits. We are still opposed by spiritual beings, or fallen angels, Ephesians 6:10-13, II Corinthians 11:14. Fallen Angels and Satan often referred to as the devil are eternally dammed, Mathew 25:41, Hell and the Lake of fire were created for him, and his fallen Angels that followed after him, Revelation 20:10.
2. The Dispensation of Conscience - the universal worldwide flood with its catastrophic event bringing God's long-suffering to an end, and resulted in the irreversible punitive judgment, ending the Dispensation of Conscience. The climax of this penal judgment, the worldwide flood is from God directly, which brought about the irreversible punitive judgment, Genesis 6:13, 17, 7:11, 17-23, II Peter 2:4, 5, Matthew 24:37- 42, Luke 17:27- 36.
This punitive judgment was against humanity for their deep wicked corruption. The sons of God, (fallen angels, or giants) intermarried with the daughters of humanity resulting in complete wickedness of the human race. Some try to identify the sons of God as the descendants of Cain, if that had been the case, they would have been completely destroyed with the worldwide flood, but they appeared after the flood, Nephilim - Genesis 6:2-4; Numbers 13:33. Whenever you see them in scripture, they are inherently evil, against God's people causing wickedness.
The Word of God makes it quite clear believers are not to marry nonbelievers, II Corinthians 6:14, or have improper relationship with animals or seek foreign unions in fulfillment with self or of the same sex, Leviticus 18:1-23; Exodus 20:14; Romans 1. God created the marriage bed holy, and for the fulfillment in procreation, marriage enjoyment, companionship and intimacies of oneness, Hebrews 13:4. When a man and woman marry they become one, there is now a spiritual union of the two, not just a physical, I Corinthians 6:18-20; Romans 1:18-32; Acts 15:29; I Corinthians 5:1-5; 5:9-11; 6:1-9; 10:8; Galatians 5:19; Ephesians 4:19; 5:3; I Thessalonians 4:3-7; I Peter 4:1-3; Revelations 2:14-23.
During the transition, from the time God observed the wickedness of humanity, to the event of God closing the door of the ark, humans had the time to repent, but there is no indication that anyone did, and the wrath of God came upon them all, causing all them to perish in their sins, with the exception of one family.
The Worldwide flood, brought death to all except Noah's family, for he had found grace in the long-suffering love of God, for the propagation of the human race, Genesis 6:8, Hebrews 11:7, I Peter 3:20, II Peter 2:5. God could have taken Noah and his family directly to heaven, but He did not, but continued His plan with humanity through Noah.
The worldwide flood occurred about 1,656 years from creation, Genesis 5 and 7:6-11.
Note: Matthew 24:37- 42, II Thessalonians 2:8-12, prophesied, saying in the future the end of the punitive judgment on the Dispensation of Promise, and for the non-believer from the Dispensation of Grace, will be an irreversible punitive judgment for the dispensations, just similar to this one as far as to conditions of the hearts of humanity, and who will be taken in Judgment, "so also will the coming of the Son of Man, --- as in the days before the flood, --- took them all away, so also it will be at His coming.")
3. The Dispensation of Human Government Man’s failure brings God's irreversible punitive judgment, resulting with the changing of the languages, and the scattering of humanity, this judgment confounded their efforts in creating a universal false world religious system. These changes caused the language difference and made humanity to disperse from their efforts, creating a check and balance on each other. The climax of this judgment is from God directly without using the instruments of humanity, which brought about the irreversible punitive judgment. At this junction God planned and chose one of the families, Abram's to bring about redemption, Genesis 11.
This dispensation has a short activated time before the failure and judgment, lasting somewhere about 390 years before the choosing of Abraham. Remember a dispensation is not controlled by time, but controlled by God's long-suffering over humanities sin, showing His mercy and grace in His plan to redeem humans, Genesis 10:10 -11:26.
Chapter ten, where we previous explained humanities failure relating to false worship, self-centered pride, and attempting to unite all humanity to join in the efforts of a false religion. Humanity united against God by establishing a false religion, creating a city and tower at Shinar, called the Tower of Babel, for the purpose of reaching the heavens, recorded in Genesis chapter nine through eleven.
The whole earth had been reestablished from the time of Noah and his three sons. It is recorded that Noah was still alive during this dispensation and its failure, Genesis 9:28 "And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years".
Peleg who was a fourth great grandson of Shem, and after the birth of Peleg's son Reu, Peleg lived another 209 years. The difference from the 390 years mentioned above is 181 years, therefore, if the reference that, "the earth was divided," refer to the time of God's irreversible punitive judgment occurring, Peleg lived through the judgment, and into the years of Abram's early years before he died, Genesis 10:25, 11:19.
Our Lord God expresses His displeasure over humanities efforts in their self-directive, seeking to becoming independent of Him, and refusing His leading for worship. However, He showed mercy again in His wrath by not punitively judging with fury, but giving grace in His actions.
God still with open arms allow humanity to correctly respond to Him as their creator, and the one who sustains life, to know Him is to know the love that only He could give. Further, it will be seen that in the next dispensation, God will reveal a system for worship. This system, the Mosaic Law, will fulfill the requirements needed for proper worship, and to have a proper relationship with the God of eternity until Jesus Christ. This plan would fulfill a person's needs, for the atoning regeneration system of redemption that was needed to meet the holy requirements for salvation before Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ then would finish His plan later for redemption and worship by the gospel. The Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled the plan for eternal forgiveness of every human, who would respond to God's incarnation provision, and from then on humanity was too worshiped through the LORD, I Timothy 2:5.
God's accommodating willingness to provide life sustaining leadership for humanities livelihood, humanity failed in appropriate worship and obedience. The descendants of Noah failed to keep the God of their existence in proper endearment in their action. God's disciplinary punishment, and unalterable punitive ruling regarding His decision, scattered the world population by changing their languages, and choosing one line of humanity, Abram’s, to develop a Nation through him, and to bring unto humanity the savior of the world for anyone, who would appropriate His sacrifice for themselves.
This dispensation changed by the introduction of the person Abram, and Scripture begins revealing this new administration, the Dispensation of Promise, (The guiding principles in the previous chapter, chapter 11, describes this transition period that all dispensations have in common, showing the conclusion of a dispensation, and the full control of the new dispensation).
4. The Dispensation of Promise - God uses one Nation that He chose, made from Jacob's twelve children in the forming of this Nation that came through the lineage of Abram, whose name was changed to Abraham. The Bible dedicates the largest Biblical record to this dispensation, with the chosen Nation Israel, and it is a pivotal dispensation in completing God's eternal plan of redemption. After many disciplinary incidents in Israel's history, there are three failure and sins that qualify, leading into the irresistible punitive judgment on the Nation of Israel. These three events was Israel's rejection of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, all three occurred before the irreversible judgment was complete, and the new dispensation began that was not prophesied during the Dispensation of Promise.
Israel had the opportunity to repent, all the way up to the time of the stoning of Stephan, Acts 7, at that time they lost their prominence as the exclusive chosen stewards, and their position in the presentation of the Gospel to the world. Yes, the Bible is written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit and they were Jewish, but the Nation as a whole lost their position in the chain of spiritual leadership, the Nation’s loss was irreversible. They will not regain their unique position until the Rapture that ends the Mystery Dispensation of Equality, (Also call the Dispensation of Grace). The final punitive aspect, the Tribulation period of the irreversible judgment on the Dispensation of Promise has been postponed, and overlaid with a mystery dispensation, and will not regain their leadership until the Mystery Dispensation is complete. The final irreversible punitive judgment, which ended the Nation of Israel's unique position, and the position they could have had, was with the stoning of Stephan.
With the stoning, the Nation lost their stewardship, and because of the stoning of Stephan the gentiles continued their oppression. Stephan's relationship to this final judgment was his spiritual relationship to God as recorded, and as a steward filled with the Holy Spirit, Acts 6:10. God’s longsuffering came to an end with their refusal to repent as a Nation. The Nation of Israel was given the opportunity to dispense the Redemptive Covenant, after the completed work of Christ Jesus and the implementation of the New Covenant, and it was where after being given the permanent indwelling or seal of the Holy Spirit they refused, and in so doing were laid aside, Acts 1-7.
The rejection of the Holy Spirit convicting Israel as a Nation, committed the unpardonable sin, directed to the existing chosen Nation of Israel at this time; they temporarily forfeited the potential they could have had, and never in their lifetime would they be able to restore this relationship, it was their irreversible punitive Judgment. If the Nation of Israel had listened, and repented they could have been God's stewards of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ as a Nation to the world, as it will be after the Mystery Dispensation’s completion, Matthew 12:32; Acts 7:51, 55; 28:23-29.
The three events of Israel's rejection of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, led to the irreversible Punitive Judgment on the Nation of Israel that caused the laying aside of the Nation, as the primary dispensers or stewards in preaching the Gospel to the world. After the Rapture and at the end of the seven-year tribulation period, only a remnant of Israel will be chosen that had been saved during the tribulation period. This remnant will repopulate the new Nation of Israel, going into the Dispensation of the Kingdom, Isaiah 10:20-23; 11:10-11; 28:5; Zephaniah 3:8-20. Israel the Nation at this time will be inserted back into God's plan, and God will fulfill His promises to the Nation of Israel, from this remnant in the Dispensation of the Kingdom.
The Dispensation of Grace is a continuation of the period called "The Time of the Gentiles." The ending of the "Time of the Gentiles" will end with the seven years of tribulation prophesied in the Book of Revelation, ending with the Battle of Armageddon. It is notable this period of the gentiles is plural, showing that this period of the gentiles was punitive on them as a Nation of rejecters, which has had a multiple gentile oppressive events through their history, the Bible accounts this history of the Nation of Israel, beginning with Israel’s captivity.
Israel's downfall began with Israel's rejection of God the Father, Isaiah 63:16 cf. v. 10. Their Captivity, reveals the anger of God for the Nation Israel's ungodly behavior, Israel's rejection of God the Father, was demonstrated in the exile of Israel, Deuteronomy 32:6,18, II Samuel 7:12-14, I Kings 15:24, I Chronicles 17:11-14; 22:10, 28:6; 29:10, Psalms 89:26, Isaiah 9:6; 63:16; 64:8, Jeremiah 3:4; 31:9, Malachi 1:6; 2:10; Matthew 5:16; Isaiah 60:10-11.
The second downfall was their rejection of the Son, Jesus Christ as Lord, John 1:11. The wrath of God that the New Testament speaks of is to be expressively of judgments on the wicked, and the rebellious covenant people, their leadership, and upon all those who refuse to believe in and accept Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world, Matthew 21:23-46, John 3:36.
With the crucifixion of our LORD, humanity showed the depth of evil that is within our hearts by the viciousness of the murder on an innocent person, Jesus. It demonstrated what wickedness one could do being self-centered when there is disagreement. The Nation of Israel along with the instrument of the gentiles performed this evil, and was deserving of irreversible punitive judgment, but our Lord said, "Father forgive them, for they know not what they are doing." God showed mercy and grace by not exercising His Holy Righteous and just privilege of judgment on the Nation of Israel, and humanity, if His Love for His creation was not great, John 3:16; Romans 5:7-10. God definitely demonstrated His love by restraining His wrath, and offering repentance to the steward Nation, and the wanting to extend forgiveness to the gentiles by using the Nation of Israel upon repentance. Israel was offered forgiveness and a continuation of their stewardship, but they refused, Matthew 2, Acts 2:14-44, Acts 3:12-15, Act 7.
(When our LORD Jesus Christ was rejected and crucified, the only hope for humanity was rejected because of an arrogant heart with Self-righteous justification, which gives excuses to commit evil, and it demonstrated an ungodly nation, and the depth of depravity on others that extends so deep in its degrees of godlessness and unrighteousness, it is endless, writing laws of hardship and negativity, it prescribes evil, robbing others, taking what does not belong to them, not giving justice, and then the unthinkable, the killing, Isaiah 10:1-3.)
The third event was the out-right rejection of God the Holy Spirit, first came the warning, announcing the penalty of such a rejection, Matthew 12:32, and then the actual occurrence of this historic event, rejection of the Holy Spirit, Acts 7:51,55; 13:46; 28:23-29; Romans 11, after the rejection the seven-year tribulation period would have occurred, the 70th week of Daniel if God had not begun and revealed the Dispensation of Grace, Daniel 9:24-27, Matthew 24, Daniel 12, Isaiah 13:13; 14:6, Revelation 19:11-21, Deuteronomy 29, Revelation 1-19. The irreversible consequence of the Nation of Israel, and by their rejecting the Holy Spirit's calling to repentance, it opened the door for God's Mystery Dispensation to be revealed, and the continuation of the gentile’s oppression on the Jews. God judged the Nation Israel for their refusal to repent, and accept the Messiah under the Holy Spirit's call for repentance, which brought about the irresistible punitive judgment upon the stoning of Stephan, Act 7.
The climax of this judgment is from God directly, and by using the instruments of humanity, He accomplishes His irreversible punitive judgment.
5. The Dispensation of Grace - also called the Dispensation of Equality or the Mystery Dispensation - Ends with the Rapture, where the unregenerate are left behind, who go into the terrible seven-year Tribulation, and the transformed believers are taken to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in the Rapture. With the irreversible judgment the believers will be taken out of the world with the Holy Spirit who indwelled them from the time of their personal salvation, Ephesians 1:13, 14. This leaves a void for all the wickedness to be loosened by Satan on the world’s population, which includes all the events of the book of Revelation, and to be carried out in their order that ends with the battle of Armageddon. When the Rapture is over and there is this great vacuum, God working through the Holy Spirit will reveal the truth of Christ Jesus too many who did not reject the Gospel before the Rapture, and those who do respond will reject the mark of the beast because of their personal commitment to the Gospel, Revelation chapters 1-7.
However, God's wrath comes on all the non-believers left behind to face the irreversible punitive judgment. The non-believers from the Dispensation of Grace all die during this timeframe, not able to repent and receive the mercy and grace our Lord Jesus offered them as a gift, freely given without any human works before the Rapture, Romans 11:17-28, I Thessalonians 5:1-9 and II Thessalonians 2, cf. I Thessalonians 4:13-18.
Those who rejected Christ Jesus after hearing the gospel, before the Rapture will die, sealing their eternal destiny, never being able to go back to the opportunity that they had passed for salvation, II Thessalonians 2:8-12. The Rapture event ends the dispensation for believers, and with those left behind, they will entering the prophesied tribulation.
Those who rejected the message of the gospel will die naturally or by the events during the tribulation period, or live to die by the final battle called the Battle of Armageddon.
The climax of this judgment is from God directly without using the
instruments of man, He brings the irreversable punitive judgment.
The Rapture ends the Dispensation of Grace, and causes the transition into the next dispensation, running together with the irreversible punitive judgment that was postponed from the Dispensation of Promise being completely fulfilled, this was prophesied for the Nation of Israel. After the Rapture, prophecy picks up precisely where it was overlaid by the Mystery Dispensation of Equality. Remember that the Dispensation of Grace was not foretold before, and was in fact revealed fully to the Apostle Paul for the new dispensation, Galatians 1:11; 1: 12- 24; 2:1-10; Colossians 1:24-26, Romans 16:25, Ephesians 3:1, 9, Acts 9:15; 26:12-23. (Note that the other apostles were not told of the new workings of God in it fullness, but they were only given that God was saving the gentiles along with them, Act 10; Acts 15; Ephesians 3:5).
The unregenerate, after the Rapture, and transition comes to an end is located in Matthew 24:37- 42, saying the end of the punitive judgment for the Dispensation of Promise, and for the nonbeliever from the Dispensation of Grace will be an irreversible punitive judgment, relating to both dispensations, culminating in the Battle of Armageddon, Revelation 16:16 where our Lord Jesus Christ physically returns to earth and rules, Revelation 19:11-23. All the nonbelievers will be sent directly to hell since nonbeliever do not enter the Dispensation of the Kingdom. The ones who were taken in the punitive judgment in Noah's days were the unrighteous and only righteous Noah and his family were saved. After the Battle of Armageddon, only the believers of God, who are still alive and transformed during the tribulation will enter the Dispensation of the Kingdom, to repopulate the earth.
Earlier in this chapter, Angels were discussed in the Dispensation of Conscience with humanities as being complicit in the fall; the Lord uses this as an example, the flood was the irreversible judgment where the wicked were taken in judgment not the righteous in Matthew 24, and at His second coming to earth the wicked will be sent to hell. The question is, are the fallen Angels acting the same way in the destruction of the human race?
A study of angels will show that they influence humans on their decisions they make during their lives, Ephesians 6:10-13, II Corinthians 11: 13-15, I Corinthians 7:5. Whenever you see fallen angels in scripture, they are evil, against God's people causing wickedness. The Word of God makes it quite clear believers are not to marry nonbelievers, II Corinthians 6:14-16, or have improper relationship with animals or seek foreign unions in fulfillment with self, or of the same sex, if one does this it is like having a relationship with Satan, with darkness resulting in consequences that accompanying such relationships.
The Bible in the book of Jude mention the workings of fallen angels in the lives of humanity in previous dispensation, and the workings of fallen angels in Jude's dispensation, also in the book of Revelation there is a constant interaction with these dark forces.
The reason for Satan abhorring the human race is his hatred of those redeemed; it is because they become children of the eternal God through adoption, taking the place above angels in the chain of command do to Jesus Christ’s work. The adoption that Jesus Christ provided makes us a child of God, to as many as receive Him, receiving Him as Lord and savior is vitally important without delay, it is a gift giving forgiveness and eternal life, Matthew 1:21, John 1:12, Romans 8:16-21!
Therefore, at the Rapture, believers are taken to be with our Lord Jesus Christ, and the unregenerate are left on earth to go through the judgment of Revelation, ending with Matthew 24 being fulfilled, and being sent to hell in the Battle of Armageddon.
6. The Dispensation of the Kingdom on Earth - is the thousand-year reign of the Messiah, the Lord Jesus. The end of this dispensation, Christ casts those who were born during the Millennium, in the Kingdom dispensation, who rejected Christ that are unregenerate, and cast them and those already in hell into the Lake of Fire, Revelation 20:7-15. This judgment is punitive and irreversible called, "the Great White Throne Judgment." Humanity’s failure brings God's judgment that will end the dispensation.
Just before the court, the Great White Throne Judgment account there is a battle called the battle of Gog and Magog, Revelation 20:7-9, Ezekiel 38:2, 18-23. The ending of this battle, Satan who deceived the world is cast into the Lake of Fire and Brimstone where the beast and the false prophets are, who have been there already, the beast and false prophets were thrown earlier into the Lake of Fire at the ending of the Battle of Armageddon, this will begin the fullness of the thousand-year dispensation, Revelation 20:10; 19:19-20.
The climax of this judgment is from God, and will be without using the instruments of man, He will bring the irreversible punitive judgment.
7. The Dispensation of the Fullness of Time also called the Kingdom of God, has no punitive judgment. All evil will for eternity be done away with, and the redeemed will live forever, living in the holiness, righteousness and justified. There will be a new heaven and earth, all the redeemed, believing humanity will live as God created them to live, in His image, and are now redeemed by the blood Jesus Christ provided, Revelation 21-22. All things will be subjected under the Godhead, and will submit in the order of leadership, I Corinthians 15:25-28.
