What are Dispensations?

DISPENSATIONS

Divisions of time in which mankind responds to a specific revelation of the will of God. I believe in a literal, dispensational interpretation of God’s Word “rightly dividing” it (2 Timothy 2:15). There are seven dispensations:

  1. Innocence — Creation to the fall (Genesis 1:27; 3:24)
  2. Conscience — Beginning of civilization to the Flood (Genesis 4:1; 8:14)
  3. Human Government — Exit from the Ark to the Tower of Babel (Genesis 8:15; 11:32)
  4. Promise — Call of Abraham to Egyptian bondage (Genesis 12:1; Exodus 19:2)
  5. Law — Ten Commandments to the end of the Gospels (Exodus 19:3; Acts 1)
  6. Grace — Pentecost to end of the Tribulation (Acts 2; Revelation 19:21)
  7. Millennium (Kingdom) — Imprisonment of Satan to the Great White Throne (Revelation 20:1; 22:7)
