The Seven Dispensations… or Times…

Studies and comments with the great E. W Bullinger…. based on a conversation just yesterday with my brother… Brian Payton… This is for you Brian… and all who have “ears to hear”…

Scripture if rightly divided… provides seven distinct Administrations:

#1- Theocratic Administration: Time of Innocence before the fall…(Genesis 1:2)…

#2- Patriarchal Administration: Mankind after the fall.. but before the law was given(Gen4- Exodus 20)…

#3- Legal Administration: Applies to Israel only under the law…

#4- Administration of Grace: Or in modern terminology…The Church Age… Jew and Gentile.. people out of both… without distinction…

#5- Israel in a Judicial sense: preparation for the restoration of all things that were spoken by the prophets…

#6- Mankind as a whole: reference to the Millennium…

#7- The Eternal State: Glory…

Summary:

1st- innocence…2nd-Without Law…3rd- Under the law…4th- Under grace…5th-Under judgment..6th- Millennial…7th- Glory..

These current times of man’s day of judging… will soon close.. and the Lord’s day of judging will begin…

The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down: and the Lord alone shall be exalted in that day”… (Isa. 2- 11, 12, 17)…

The abasement of man will soon end… the exaltation of Jehovah will soon begin…

What a fantastic study… I believe the most important take away from this bit of a deep dive into the Word… is that the wonderful creator of this universe… the sustainer of this universe…. had a plan from the beginning… nothing can stop… no one can stop or thwart… the plan of God…

Not Barack Obama… Bill and Hillary Clinton… the planted seed… the pathetic leftovers… in the Department of Justice… in the State Department.. you know who they are…

Not Chuck Schuma’… Not Nancy Pelosi… Not Corey Booker… Not Elizabeth.. ( Pocahontas)… Warren… Not all “burned out” Bernie Sanders… or whoever else is waiting in the shadow wings…

Hillary is resigned to long walks in the woods…. let’s hope that the rest of the obstructionist will soon join her…
