Dispensations – Part 2. As human beings, we have the capacity to ask questions the animal or vegetable kingdom cannot. Questions like “Where did I come from?”, “Why am I here?”, or “Where am I going?”. God has given us these answers and we can easily find them in the Bible. We were created in His image, to serve and glorify God. One day we will appear with Him in a place He has prepared for us. At this point, God has a question for you which is “What are you doing with my work I’ve given you and called you to do?”. According to 2 Timothy 2:15, we need to study the Bible to be approved unto God, handling His scripture accurately and applying it in our lives so we can be about His business which is our calling. The study of “Dispensations” is just recognizing that the administrations of God change over time. Right Division is the study of scripture to learn the differences between the different administrations of God and keeping scripture in it’s proper context so we don’t walk or worship in error. It also brings you to your specific calling and faith obedience which is when you find your walk is approved unto God. There are many examples in scripture of right division. For example, Isaiah 9:6-7 is a popular Christmas verse, yet that passage is specific to Israel to confirm a promise made to Israel (there are many traditions in error at Christmas, learn more about those here). In every administration, there is man’s way and then there is God’s way. Tradition is what blinds man to follow his own way (because that’s the way we’ve always done it) and it’s the word of God, rightly divided that brings man back around to God’s way. The lesson on 09-22-2002 continues the study on Dispensations and picks up with the Patriarchal dispensation after the fall. Click here to listen now.
