A few here have it right, and are not hyper-dispensationalist so called, but hyper in furthering the cause of Christ which is to fill His Church, The Body of Christ Church, in order to bring on the Rapture, so The Kingdom Can Come. A simple question please. Why does the word "dispensation" scare people away from Paul? Do these same people scorn and disbelieve MOSES? For heavens sake this word comes from a little word "dispense". How in the world can anyone read scripture and not see that God dispenses His Grace differently from the beginning? Did His Grace toward Abel include the LAW? Did Abel have to do the the same as Noah did to be saved? Noah was required to do more more than Abel. All Abel had to do was believe God and do as he was told. And what was that? Make a Blood Sacrifice. Is this all that Noah had to do? Did God not dispense His Grace differently dealing with Noah? All Abel had to do was believe God and make blood sacrifice. Just for the heck of it let's call this something? How does Work sound? God determined that certain things must come about in order to accomplish His Goal. So what did He do in order to see that the Father would have His Only Begotten Son with Him in eternity, and eliminating Sin, Death, and the Grave? The next big event increased a work required of Abel, to works. Noah not only had to do blood sacrifice, but had to build the first boat, and the boat did float, and because it did the first thing Noah did was to make blood sacrifice. So what do the naysayers have to say about God "dispensing" His Grace when He will, and How He will? I'm putting in words as simply as I can, hoping some may catch the drift, as we move from one "dispensation" to another? How horrible we say Paul claims to have a dispensational gospel given to Him by Christ Jesus from Heaven. If not a change, then what is it? Before answering I hope you will check scripture first to see if there was a change in the Word of God at the birth of John the Baptist, and is the gospel of John the Baptist what God tells us to believe TODAY? In any dispensation, all we have to do is Believe What God Tells Us As We Live.
