He sendeth His Word unto one people and not to another, to one city and not to another, at one time and not at another, and these are those matters of His whereof He giveth no account. The major purpose of Lukes writings (including the book of Acts) is to show that the gospel of Jesus Christ is available to all.

Luke, unlike Matthew, extends Jesus genealogy back to Adam, the father of all humans, rather than just to Abraham (see Luke ; see by comparison Matthew ). the appointed apostle to the dispensation of God's grace (verse 10).

The underlying point behind this passage concerns how Jesus Christ is doctrinally presented in the scripture. Whereas Jesus Christ is the focus of the entire Bible, it is only in the Pauline epistles in which Christ is presented according to the mystery gospel of God's grace.

"The Book of the Revelation clearly indicates that saints will be present on the earth during the 70th week. For example, Revelation teaches that the Antichrist will wage war against the saints (; cp.

Dan25) during the 70th week and that many saints of that period will be martyred (; ). The Dispensation of Law covered the entire span of time from Exodus throughout the rest of the Old Testament, the intertestamental period, and through gospel history until Actswhen the dispensation finally changed.

Therefore this dispensation spanned a considerable period. The Chief Person was Moses. Placing Johns Gospel in the dispensation of the mystery has no merit on two grounds. 1) The purposes of Johns Gospel are specifically given in Jn.

Since the final dispensation is a culmination of all that has come before, Joseph Smith is revered as a preeminent figure under Jesus Christ (DC ;). Every dispensation, beginning with Adam's, has been a dispensation of the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ.

The dispensation of Law is named after the Mosaic Law, called a covenant in Exodus ; Deuteronomy ; and Galatians It was Gods only conditional covenant with Israel in that blessing and success depended upon the peoples obedience to the Law (Exodus ).

DISPENSATIONS. Dispensation defined: A dispensation is a period of time during which man is tested in respect of obedience to some specific revelation of the will of such dispensations are distinguished in Scripture. It is very important to realize that in every dispensation salvation has been by grace alone (Acts ).

The central work of the "dispensation of the fulness of times" consists of bringing together all gospel ordinances and truths of past dispensations and some items unique to the last days.

For va rious reasons we have omitted to notice it un. til the present time. 'l'he whole work is well. Each dispensation is a test of mankind to be faithful to the particular revelation given at the time. Generally, seven dispensations are distinguished: innocence (before the fall), conscience (Adam to Noah), government (Noah to Babel), promise (Abraham to Moses), Law (Moses to Christ), grace (Pentecost to the rapture), and the millennium.

The word "dispensation" means "a system of order, government, or organization of a nation, community, etc.especially as existing at a particular time.

" Looking through the Bible, we can find seven distinct dispensations, or "ways of doing things" that were God-ordered and God-ordained. Each dispensation has a purpose in the overall story. In the dispensational scheme we have the Age of Innocence, the Age of Conscious, the Age of Human Government, the Age of Promise, and then we have the Age of Law.

The Dispensations And the Ages By Jack Kinsella. Paul wrote to Timothy, Study to show thyself approved of God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.
