The DISPENSATION of the MESSIANIC KINGDOM
The Scriptural Record of God's Dispensationalism
A Judeo-Christian Theology of the Rising Meshianite Realm
The concepts of Dispensationalism have long been around among
Bible Scholars and Theologians. However, their complexities have not
made them too popular with the common, ordinary, everyday Believer.
So, let us take a quick and somewhat simple view here of this Teaching,
that it might be more readily understood by the people out there.
Definition of Dispensationalism
As with any topic, it is a good idea to know the terms and words that
are being discussed. Otherwise, miss-understandings are all too
possible when one speaks of apples but the other is thinking of
Unger's Bible Dictionary holds that: a dispensation is an Era of
Time during which man is tested with respect to obedience to some
definite revelation of God's Will.
Thus, God has set before Mankind, at different times, various
commands or orders to be obeyed. Those who are obedient, receive
God's Favor and Blessings. Those who aren't...don't!
Impact on Scriptures
Consequently, as God has revealed HIMSELF, and HIS expressed Will, in
the Holy Scriptures, as time passes, we find that some things were
asked by God for one set time and then abandoned at another. This
causes no end of havoc, for those who fail to grasp exactly what is
happening here! So, let us get this carefully and completely clear
in our own minds.
Some Scriptures or Laws of God were given for only one set time or
Dispensation. These are classified as Dispensational Laws. Others
were intended for ALL TIME. And these are called Perpetual Statues.
And, we need to be clear on separating out those apples from oranges,
The most obvious error here is by those who claim that the whole
Old Testament needs to be thrown out and disregarded, because we are
now in the Christian Era (not the Old Testament Jewish Era). However,
even the New Testament itself tells us that: ALL SCRIPTURE (both Old
and New) is good for doctrine and teaching (2 Timothy 3:16). Moreover,
Y'Shua or Jesus HIMSELF tells us to use both Old and New (Matthew
13:52) and that the Laws of God (especially the 10 Commandments) were
to be upheld through ALL TIME (Matthew 5:17-19)!
So, just how many of these Dispensations or Eras of Time are there,
in the Holy Scriptures?
THE SEVEN ERAS OF DISPENSATIONALISM
While there is some debate on the exact number (and thus disagreement
of the exact divisions of all the Time Eras), it is generally held that
there are 7 such Eras given in the Holy Scriptures. Moreover, as
this fits with God, and HIS normal Plans (such as the 7 Days of
Creation), we have followed this division, here. Furthermore, it seems
to fit will with our understand of other Bible Prophecy, as well.
So, what are these Eras or Dispensations?
As you should note, the main Scriptures concerning these Dispensational
markers have been listed above. However, other Scriptures can also
be found in support of this Teaching, if you care to look.
- 1. THE DISPENSATION OF INNOCENCE:
This Era began with the Creation of Mankind. Man was made in
God's Image to be HIS companion, as an immortal spiritual being.
And, symbolic of this, woman was made and given to man to be his
companion and helper. This was, indeed, an ideal state or utopia!
The only rule Mankind had to keep was to NOT eat of the Tree of
Good and Evil! However, the woman was seduced by the Serpent and
led man into Sin against God. Consequently, this glorious Era
came to an end at the Expulsion of Mankind from the Garden of Eden
- 2. THE DISPENSATION OF CONSCIENCE - Adamaic Era
Excluded from God's Presence, Mankind now had to govern himself:
restraining himself and abstaining for every evil act while also
pursuing all good actions. And, to make up for his own failures,
he was to offer blood sacrifices of animals, to atone for his Sin.
However, Mankind developed such a defective conscience, that he
degenerated into the worst forms of evil (Genesis 6:1-7), so ALL
of Mankind was destroyed in the Great Flood (where Noah and his
family escaped to start anew).
- 3. THE DISPENSATION OF DIVINE GOVERNMENT - Ancient
After the Great Flood of Noah, God instituted the
Noahic Rules of Fellowship for Mankind
to know and obey (Genesis 9:8-17). And, to facilitate this, there
arose a variety of human governments (on the Monarchial Model) to
watch over the people to be sure that their conscience did not
become defective. (Consequently, Era 2 and 3 overlap each other a
bit!) However, the Ancient Royal Governments fell into Idolatry,
and tended to lead the people astray, rather than keep them in
Ways of God!
- 4. THE DISPENSATION OF THE DIVINE FAMILY - Tribal
As the surrounding governments degenerated into idolatry, God
Called Abraham and gave him the Promise--and to ALL of his
Descendants (Genesis 12:1-3). Correspondingly, Patriarchs were
set up to oversee their Family (i.e. extended Family or Clan)
members, to be sure that their conscience did not become defective.
(Thus, Era 2 and 4 seem to overlap a bit, as well.) However, the
weakeness of the Family (and their bickering, dis-unity, and Sin)
caused the Tribes to be drawn back under the Idolatrous
governments, where they pursued evil with the heathens, in Egypt!
- 5. THE DISPENSATION OF THE LAW - Congregational
Teachers' (Elders) Era
To rescue HIS People from the cluthes of Idolatry, God sent Moses,
with the Divine LAW, which was revealed to Mankind after the Exodus
from Egypt (Exodus 19:5-8). And, to uphold this LAW, there arose a
variety of Congregational Teachers (and overseers or Elders) to
make certain that the People knew exactly what God wanted--as well
as to watch over the members of the Flock, to be sure that their
individual conscience did not become defective. (Thus, Era 2 and
5 also seem to overlap! Moreover, as these Teachers became swayed
by Pagan myths and fanciful stories, God attempted to mix in some
of Era 3 by setting up the Kingdoms of Saul, David, and Solomon!)
However, the People of God (and Descendants of Abraham) continued
to slide away from the Ways of God!
- 6. THE DISPENSATION OF GRACE - Gentile Church Era
As God's People, the Descendants of Abraham (Jews, Ishmaelites,
etc.), slid away from HIM, God sent HIS only begotten Son, to die
of the Cross, as an atonement (or payment for ALL Sin), for all of
Mankind! Thus, with the Crucifixion, came the open door to all the
Gentiles all over the world! (1 Corinthians 9:17 and Ephesians
3:1-7) Moreover, the precious Holy Spirit was given to such
Belivers (with the Indwelling) to help them walk in the Ways of
God (Colossians 1:25-27). However, the Gentiles clung to their old
Pagan ways and did not fully embrace the Ways of God (and
Holiness)! And have found the ways of the wicked world all too
inviting (even down to our modern times).
- 7. THE DISPENSATION OF THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM - The
With the recapture of Jerusalem in the Six Day War of 1967 by the
Jews, we have entered a New Dispensation! (Luke 21:24) It is NOW
Time for a RETURN of ALL of God's People (the Descendants of
Abraham) to HIM. And, thus we come to the End of the Dispensations
(and to the doors of the End Times, as well). Now, just what is
suppose to go on in this Dispensation? Well, that is quite
controversial! So, let us look at it in more detail, below.
But, for now, what is happening in Our own TIMES?
THE CHURCH VIEW OF THE MESSIANIC KINGDOM
The Great Error of the Religious Establishment
The popular view among the modern Churches (or the current Religious
Establishment), many of whom are even aware of this Dispensational Time
Marker of the Recapture of Jerusalem by the Jews, tends to hold that
the Rapture or Translation of the Saints is about to occur (with the
anti-christ ready to emerge, any minute). And, by this model, what is
soon to occur is that the Jews are to RETURN to God through Christ once
the Gentile Church has been snatched away in the Rapture!
Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems with that Teaching!
For one thing, the Messianic (Jewish-Christian) RETURN is exploding,
now! Not since the Days of the original Apostles have so many Jews
found Y'Shua to be their Messiah and come to God through the Cross!
(For more details on this Movement, see Our
EMUSPATEL PAGES!) Thus, the Jews are RETURNING, but the expected
Rapture has NOT yet occured.
Secondly, such a timeline breaks the outline of the Levitical
Calendar, which more clearly shows that we are at Pentecost in God's
Time Table, than at the Feast of Trumpets and the Rapture! (For more
details, see Our Article on KEEPING THE
Thirdly, such a Teaching breaks Hosea's Prophecy, that the RETURN
will occur in 2 Days (2,000 years), as it is now. And that the Rapture
and Millenial Reign of Christ will come after another Day (1,000 years)
or 3rd Day! Yes, see Hosea 6:2! So, what will happen in the extra
Thousand years? It will be a promised Era of Rest, due to the rise of
robotics and automation. (See Our Article on
The ERA OF REST!)
Yet, perhaps most important of all, it leaves a variety of
Scriptural Prophecies unfulfill. God still has more to finish, before
HE takes us home to be with HIM! For example, consider the abundance
of Scriptures on the coming activities of Mankind out among the Stars!
(See Our Article on INTERSTELLAR PASSAGES!)
And, we are not there, yet.
Thus, the Religious Establishment is mis-interpreting the Signs of
Our Times! (Much as they did in the Days of Jesus, refusing to
recognize HIM as the True Messiah!) So, what do the Scriptures
actually say about the New Messianic Kingdom Dispensation?
MESSIANIC KINGDOM or MESHIANITE REALM?
Unfortunately, most people have no patience for God to do HIS work in
HIS own good time. Consequently, many Believers want the Messianic
Kingdom to occur over-night! (Just as the Jews wanted the Christ to
destroy Rome in the blink of an eye, instead of by attrition and
generation after generation--as HE did.) And, this contributes greatly
to the popular Rapture Rush.
However, perhaps having a deeper understanding of God and how HE
works, we tend to see a long term development occuring here, that will
eventually usher in the coming Messianic Kingdom, but by slow and
steady steps. Not by sudden flash and Rapture. Consequently, we see
a lot of work ahead. (But others are just lazy and don't want to put
their hand to the plow--and labor for God's Kingdom.)
So, what do we see happening? Well, the Messianic RETURN of the
Jews is already occuring. (For more details on this Movement, see Our
EMUSPATEL PAGES!) Along with this, we have developing a Nordic
RETURN or a Return to God among the Northern Peoples, who are the
main descendants of the Northern Kindgom of Isreael. (For more details
on this Northmen Renewal, see Our NORDESEL
PAGES!) Soon to come is a RETURN among the Ishmaelites or Arabs
and Muslims, for they will also be part of the Regathered Israel.
(For more details on this Arab Movement, see Our
APPIRU PAGES!) And, these 3 Main branches of the Descendants of
Abraham (Jews, Christians, and Muslims) will come together into a
Spiritual Realm or Holy Body of Israel, that will continue to grow,
untill the full Messianic Kingdom is reached. (For more details on
this Spiritual Realm and its accopmanying Meshianite Movement, see Our
KoReY TRI-UNITY PAGE!) For, the Meshianite
Realm or Religious Body will come first (see KoReY, below), and then
the Holy Nation or Astaria or Israel.
ASTARIA: THE HOLY MESSIANIC KINGDOM
KoReY - the Holy Israel out among the Stars
Most people just ASSUME that the Holy RETURNED Isreal (and the
Messianic Kingdom) will occur down here, on the Planet Earth. However,
there are an abundance of Scriptues that show that this great wonder
will occur out among the Stars (Revelations 12:1). Our Vikings are
learning of this. (For more details on this Future Viking Movement,
see Our VIKING INTERSTELLAR ISRAEL!) And,
Our Northmen are looking foward to this Future Holy Nation, as well!
(For more details on this Northmen Space Realm, see Our
NORDIC ASTARIA!) So, isn't it about time
that you found out what this Interstellar Israel is all about?
Hey, don't delay! Get in line with God's Will for Our Days. It is

SPACE: The New Generation
Judeo-Christian Theology for Future Believers
Sadly, when the Tribes of Israel came out of Egypt, the older
generation (the Religious Establishment of their Days) was so set in
their ways (Paganism), that they were unwilling to change or to enter
in to God's Will for them (the Promised Land). As a result, the
Children of Israel had to wander about in the Wilderness for 40 years,
untill all the old generation died off. What a dismal epitaph! But,
are we in our days, any different?
Since God gave the major sign of the Recapture of Jerusalem by
the Jews, the Gentile Churches (and the Religious Establishment of Our
Days) have been content to remain in their comfortable Dispensation of
Grace. And despite their being prodding, and getting messages from
God (through us), they have steadfastly planted their feet, and have
refuse to enter into the New Dispensation of the Messianic Kingdom.
So, what will their epitaph be?
Consequently, we look forward to the year 2007 when it will be
40 years or exactly one generation since the Sign of Jerusalem. By
then, most of the Era of Grace Church-goers will have died off. And
we should be ready to enter that Dispensation of the Messianic Kingdom,
as God had intended! Thus, we look forward to 2007 being a Red Banner
year for us. (And, coincidently, might this also have something to
do with the Bible Code predictions of the Nuclear Holocaust in the
years 2004 and 2006? Well, perhaps this is the
Nova Crisis that Our Labs have been discussing? Unfortunately,
there is no firm Word of the Lord on this yet. But, it certainly
So, don't hang back with the Old Dispensation. Get into the New
Generation. And start working for God's expressed will for Our
Times--the Messianic Kingdom Dispensation!
