A Study Of God’s Plan For The Ages
This is part of the Genesis Bible Study but is also here as a separate study.
Part 1 covers from the time of Creation to the end of the Mosaic Law.
Part 2 covers the time we are in now, the Grace Age, through the Millennial Kingdom to future eternity.
During the the Age of Grace we are under the authority of the local church, led by the Holy Spirit and overseen by Jesus as our Great High Priest.
We serve in the local church while we wait for the Glorious appearance of our Lord Jesus.

Here are more PDFs from the Dispensation Study
Here are some of the books I recommend for anyone who wants to know more about The Dispensations
This is the Panorama I use for the Dispensa-
tion Study slides. I created the slides with
Apple’s Keynote app on a Macintosh Mini. This is an old and wonderful piece of work. I bought the original about 30 years ago when it was in a Sepia tone. Now it is in full color. It is not so much a book, but a very large pamphlet, using very high quality paper. What you get is an outline of The Plan of the Ages. This is an excellent overview of Bible history. It has all of the Scripture references with a commentary for each dispensation. What I especially like is the Red Line (no reference to the DC Metro). The Red Line follows the Messianic Line from Gen 3:15, on through the Old and New Testaments, up to the Cross of the Lord Jesus: The End of the LINE. Beautiful!
This Panorama is so helpful to new students of the Bible.
It is a very easy way to learn the dispensations and to see how our Creator God has worked in history.
If you want to find out more about Alfred Thompson Eade and his life’s service to the Lord, go to his family’s web site at Oak Knoll Publishing. The Eade family did not settle far from where my own mother was raised in Alberta Canada. My grandma Vogel died at the age of 103 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. She was a believer in Jesus all of her life, and what a blessing it was for her when several of us in my family came to know the Lord Jesus as she did. I will never forget what she told me one day, “We were in a church before the war, and many people said that Hitler was the Anti-Christ, but I knew he wasn’t, because I was still here. Jesus will take us before the Anti-Christ comes!” Grandma was not a great theologian, but she knew her Lord!
What IS the Difference between Covenant Theology and Dispensational Theology? Renald Showers looks at the approach to issues like God’s ultimate purpose for history and for the Nation of Israel. He examines the key covenants of the Bible, as well as the differences between the premillennial, amillennial, and postmillennial views of the Kingdom of God.
This book is easy to follow and understand, and is one of my favorites.
Charles C. Ryrie’s classic! This is the revised edition of Dispensationalism Today that he wrote more than 30 years ago. He examines all the views: covenant theology, historical premillennialism, ultradispensationalism and progressive dispensa-tionalism. He then makes a very clear case for Dispensationalism. Ryrie is clear and easy to read.
