Ages and Dispensations

Age- Revolution of Time

1 Age defined. The Hebrew Eth and Greek aion mean any period of time whether long or short; time; season. In this sense there are numberless ages (Job 38:23; Eccl. 3:1-17; 7:17; 8:6; 9:12; Isa. 49:8; Dan. 8:17, 19, 23; 10:1; 11:24, 27, 29, 35, 40; 12:1, 4, 7, 9, 11; Eph. 2:7; 3:5-6, 21)

2 Past Ages (Job. 8:8; Isa. 45:21; Ez. 26:20; Lk. 1:70;Acts 3:21; 15:18; 1 Cor. 2:7; Eph. 3:5-6; Col. 1:26)

3 Present Age (Mt. 13:22, 39-40; Mk. 4:19; Lk. 16:8;20:34; Rom. 12:2; 1 Cor 1:20; Gal. 1:4; 2 Tim. 4:10; Tit. 2:12)

4 Future Ages (Mt. 12:31-32; Mk. 10:30; Lk. 20:35; Eph. 1:21; 2:7; 3:21; 1 Tim. 1:17)

5 Creative Ages (Gen. 1:1-2:25; Rom. 1:20; Eph. 3:9; Col. 1:15-18)

6 5 Main Ages in Time:   (1)The ante-chaotic and chaotic age’s—is from the original creation (Gen. 1:1) to beginning of chaos (Gen. 1:2). During this time Lucifer ruled the earth in perfection, before he fell and caused the earth to be made chaotic and flooded (Gen. 1:1-2; Isa. 14:12-14; Jer. 4:23-26; Ez. 28:11-17; Lk. 10:18; 2 Pet. 3:5-7). This age took in all the period of the dateless past, the original creations, Lucifer’s reign in perfection (Ez. 28:15), the period of rebellion by Lucifer and pre-Adamites, the period of time when Lucifer was thrown out of heaven (Isa. 14:12-14; Lk. 10:18), and the chaotic period on earth after the defeat of Lucifer’s kingdom (Gen. 1:2; Jer. 4:23-26; 2 Pet. 3:5-7) until the 6 days of restoration and creation. These periods were of unknown length.

(2) The antediluvian agefrom the end of the 6 days of restoration of the heavens and earth to a second habitable state (Gen. 1:3-2:25) to the flood of Noah’s time; or, from the flood of Lucifer (Gen. 1:2) to the flood of Noah (Gen. 6:8-8:14). This age included the dispensations of Innocence and Conscience— 1,656 years (Gen. 5)

(3) The present or postdiluvian agefrom the flood of Noah (Gen. 6:8-8:14) to the Millennium (Rev. 19:11-20:7). This age takes in four dispensations: Human Government, Promise, Law, and Grace— already over 4,121 years by AD 2016.

(4) The age to comefrom the 2nd advent of Christ (Rev. 19:11-21) to the New Heavens and New Earth (Rev. 21-22). This age will last 1000 years (Rev. 20:4-10).

(5) The age of the agesfrom the end of the Millennium (Rev. 20:4-10) into all eternity when God will move His capital city from the planet heaven to the planet earth to reign forever (Rev. 11:15; 21:1-22:5; Gen. 9:12, 16; 17:1-8; 2 Sam. 7; Ps. 89; Isa. 9:6-7; Ez. 43:7; Dan. 2:44-45; 7:13-14, 18, 27; Lk. 1:32-33; 1 Cor. 15:24-28). This could be called the Eternal Future.


If the truth be known, God brought you on this earth to love you, to feed you knowledge of His Word, to test you, to judge you and either to keep you for His own or send you to one of His jails filled with total darkness, heat and to be tormented without God for eternity.

God is testing you every day and has given you the right to make your own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
