    Dispensation in the NT, KJV1769 version:

    1 Corinthians 9:17 (KJV1769):
    For if I do this thing willingly, I have a reward:
    but if against my will, a dispensation of the gospel
    is committed unto me.

    Ephesians 1:10 (KJV1769):
    That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might
    gather together in one all things in Christ, both
    which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

    Ephesians 3:2 (KJV1769):
    If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God
    which is given me to you-ward:

    Colossians 1:25 (KJV1769):
    Whereof I am made a minister, according to the dispensation
    of God
    which is given to me for you, to fulfil the word of God;

    The Holy Spirit hasn't shown me a lot more than is here. I do know the Greek word being translated here as 'dispensation' is the Greek word from which we get the English word'economy'.

    I do know (IN SUMMARY OF THE BIBLE off the top of my head) that this is what the economy of God is like:

    Bible Prophetic times:
    'hour' = the appropriate time
    'day' = the appropriate time
    or '1 day' = 1,000 years
    '½-week' = 3½-years
    '1 day' = 'week' = 7 years
    'month' = the appropriate time
    year = the appropriate time

    Other 'economy of God facts':

    the blind see
    the dead live
    the deaf hear
    the lame leap like deer
    the first is last
    the last is first
    Jesus Saves (totally!)
    God Rules!!

    Frequently the Bible discusses:

    What is 'to be' is discussed is often found either in present tense (is done) or in past tense (done already done).

    When were National Jews all saved?

    Can National Jews be saved without believing that Jesus is their Lord (& Messiah) in this age or in the Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age?

    Will there be a second chance for National Jews in the Messianic Kingdom Age?

    Will there be a second change for National Jews to be saved in the Tribulation Judgment between-ages Period?

    Can Gentiles be saved in the Tribulation Judgment between-ages Period?

    Will all Gentiles saved in the Church Age (AKA: Time of the Gentiles) be rewarded with being on earth in the Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age?

    What place does the Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age have in God's plan of the Ages?

    What place does the Tribulation Judgment between-ages Period have in God's plan of the Ages?

    Sorry for using phrases that most people use one word for. But it seems to clarify what it is we are talkling about. If we agree, we should understand our area of agreement; if we do not agree, we should understand or area of disagreement.

    "trib" -Tribulation Judgment between-ages Period
    The short period (70th week of Daniel 9) between the Church Age and the Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age during which lost earth gentiles will be punished for rejecting Jesus and the National Jews will nearly all be saved by believing that Jesus is their Lord & Messiah. This Period is one of the events called in the Bible: The Day of the Lord. The trib starts with the beginning of The Day of the Lord, the pretribulation rapture2, and the end of The Day of the Lord, the post-tribulation Second Return of the Lord in power & glory to destroy/jail the Antichrist and the lackys of the Antichrist.

    "Millennium" - Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age
    The age following the current age. Some Church Age people will be rewarded in heaven after the pre-tribulation rapture2 with service in the Millennial Messianic Kingdom Age.

    Here are some other definitions I've posted elsewhere:

    (both the rapture2 and the resurreciton2 are part of
    what Revelation 20:5 calls THE FIRST RESURRECTION.)

    ----------------------
    rapture1 - an event held by Jesus where the living saints get new eternal bodies like Jesus' body.

    resurrection1 - an event held by Jesus where dead saints get new eternal bodies like Jesus' body.

    The first resurrection (see Revelation 20) consists of these two events:

    rapture2 - a resurrection1 followed shortly by
    a rapture1 before the Tribulation Period
    (many pre-mill, post-tribs deny a 'rapture2' exists
    but think a 'rapture1 exists).
    (this I frequently call 'a rapture/resurrection
    in my old writings)

    resurrection2 - a resurrection1 followed shortly by
    a rapture1 before the Tribulation Period
    (this I call generally this in my old writings:
    the 'Second Coming of Jesus
    in power & Glory, or just 'Second Advent', etc.)
