Dispensationalism is a system of literal interpretation that recognizes specific time-frames (or periods of history) where God has given additional revelation and stewardship responsibilities to man. Each of these stages of history, or 'dispensations,' can be marked by a beginning event, increased stewardship responsibility (as a result of the additional revelation being given to believe by faith and obeyed), the failure of man, and a closing event. This system of interpretation stands in contrast to Covenant Theology, in that Dispensationalist also recognize the faithfulness of God regarding His covenants to physical Israel; believing that God specifically chose to work through the nation of Israel and will once establish them according to His Word.
The Dispensations (Kingdom)
The Bible can be divided into periods of stewardship where God has held man accountable for specific increased revelation. Each of these periods of time can be delineated by a specific initial event, a resposibility, a failure, and a specific final event. As we look to examine the final of these dispensations - Kingdom, we must first discuss the inset of the final 7 years of one of Daniel's prophecies that is yet to be completed but revealed by Jesus in His Revelation to John.

The Dispensations (Church)
We have been considering the seven most commonly accepted Biblical dispensations, or stewardships of time. This message examines the stewardship of the church which began with the resurrection of Christ and will continue until the fulfillment of the mystery at the 'rapture' (or 'harpazo') of the church. This message was presented on Sunday, July 1, 2018 by Bob Corbin.
The Dispensations (Promise and Law)
Biblical history can be divided into seven distinct periods of stewardships, or dispensations. This message discusses those covering the initial period of the nation of Israel: the dispensation of Promise and the dispensation of Law. This message was presented on Sunday, June 24, 2018 by Bob Corbin.
The Dispensations (Innocence to Government)
Biblical history can be divided into seven distinct periods of stewardships, or dispensations. This message covers the first three of those times of stewardship: Innocence, Conscience and Government. This message was presented on Sunday, June 17, 2018 by Bob Corbin.
The Stewardship of Revelation
The audio from the first two messages in this series was not usable. However, Bob does a good job of reviewing the teaching from those first two messages (covering Biblical Interpretation and the initial consideration of Dispensational distinctives) during this message. Hence, until we re-record those first two teachings, we encourage you to begin the series with this message. ... As we discuss the importance of the interpretation of God's Word, it is important to examine what God's Word declares regarding it's own interpretation. This message is a continuation of the message from June 3rd. This message was presented on Sunday, June 10, 2018 by Bob Corbin.
