So far in our study of dispensations we have noted the first four dispensations which basically dealt with Gentiles until Abram because Abraham, the first Jew.

1. The Dispensation of Innocency (Adam and the woman)
2. The Dispensation Of Conscience (Cain and Abel)
3. The Dispensation Of Human Government (Noah)
4. The Dispensation Of Promise (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob

We are now ready for the next dispensation: 5. The Dispensation Of The Mosaic Law - (Featuring Moses)

Moses was one of the greatest born-again genius' of the O.T., he was handsome in face and body, he was an extremely powerful man, a genius in the field of music, writing, engineering, a military genius, an administrative genius, and he was a Jew.

Moses led the Jews to freedom from slavery and that is when the Exodus began, a marvelous story of one of the greatest man who ever lived and the beginning of God's first chosen people.

The patience of that man, the courage, the mental attitude, the marvelous spiritual life and the humility of that man is fantastic, ehich is why NUM 12:3 calls him the most humble man in all the earth.

NUM 12:3 Now the man Moses was very humble, more than any man who was on the face of the earth.

At one time everyone turned against him, including his sister Miriam, and those other loser believers and unbelievers who were in emotional revolt.

The Mosaic Law was given to Israel as the first client nation to God in 1440 B.C. according to Exo 19:13; Lev 26:46; Rom 3:19, 9:4.

When it says that Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, under the principle of typology it refers to the believer getting away from Egypt, a type of the cosmic system.

Notice it says that what Moses says should be said to the Jews only, or to the house of Jacob and the sons of Israel:

God promises blessings on the new people of God, or in context, the nation of God.

If His people whom He has chosen do not do what they have been appointed to do, then all the negative consequences result; Lev 26:14-43.

The point is that the Mosaic law was never given to gentiles but only to the Jews.

The Mosaic is not for us and that the law was never given to gentiles, Deu 4:8; Rom 2:12‑14; 1Pe 3:15.

The Mosaic Law was never given to the church, Act 15:5, 24; ROM 6:14; Gal 2:19.

ROM 6:14 For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law, but under grace. Gal 2:19 "For through the Law I died to the Law, that I might live to God.

The question arises is that if we are not under the Mosaic Law then what Law does God expect us to follow?

The church has no animal sacrifices, no Saturday worship, no specialized priesthood, etc.

JAM 2:8 If, however, you are fulfilling the royal law, according to the Scripture, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself," you are doing well.  

1} A believer under the law makes Christ a minister of sin, Gal 2:17.
2} The believer has died to the Law, Gal 2:19.
3} A believer has received all the benefits of the Spirit through faith, Gal 3:1-5 not through the Law.
4} The law brings nothing but condemnation, Gal 3:10-14.
5} God's promised blessings to Abraham came before the giving of the law, therefore, the law cannot be a prior claim, Gal 3:15-17.
6} The law has no power to give life or to sustain life, Gal 3:21.
7} The law is intended only for the immature, while positionally, believers are full-grown sons, Gal 3:23-4:7.
8} The law is a bondage to the believer, Gal 4:9.
9} Law and grace are mutually exclusive principles; therefore, choose one or the other, Gal 4:21-31.
10} The believer has an abiding freedom in Christ, Gal 5:1.
11} The believer must keep all the law, if he would attempt to keep even part of it, Gal 5:2-4.
12} The persuasion to put the believer under the law is not from God, Gal 5:8.
13} Legalism of the believer does away with the offense of the cross, Gal 5:11.
14} All the law is fulfilled by the Holy Spirit, Gal 5:16-24.
15} The life of the believer must be sustained on the same principle as his new birth or regeneration, Gal 5:25.
16} The believer's proneness to sin calls for his dealing with grace, not dealing according to the law, Gal 6:1-5.
17} All who advocate the law for the believer cannot keep it themselves, and their intention is ultimate glory in the flesh, Gal 6:13.

God's Word tells us that whatever good thing we do for others, He will give back to us.

EPH 6:8 knowing that whatever good thing each one does, this he will receive back from the Lord,

2CO 8:2 that in a great ordeal of affliction [they were being afflicted and judged by the legalists of their day, the Judaizers] their abundance of joy [their inner happiness] and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality.

Act 20:35, "The Lord Jesus Himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive."

Whenever we give our time, talent or treasure, what we are really giving is a portion of ourselves.

2Co 9:8 "And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need, be self-sufficient—possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation"

Now, in this passage we are told that God is able to abundantly provide every blessing in our lives so that, no matter what happens, we can always have every one of our needs met.....  and with enough left over for any charitable donation that we are led to give.
God's Word not only says that this type of prosperity is available to us, but we are told that this is "always" available to us "under all circumstances" (first part of the verse).

However, there is one key word at the start of this verse 2Co 9:8 "And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance,

We obtain this by verse 6, sowing bountifully, by sowing many financial seeds as a result of giving cheerfully in verse 7 to the Lord.

The principle is that in order to reap this harvest of God's blessings, we must sow the seeds.

PRO 11:24 There is one who scatters, yet increases all the more, And there is one who withholds what is justly due, but {it results} only in want.

PRO 11:25 The generous man will be prosperous, And he who waters will himself be watered.

Pro 11:24 It is possible to give away and become richer! It is also possible to hold on too tightly and lose everything.

Pro 11:25 Yes, the liberal man shall be rich! By watering others, he waters himself. (TLB)

As the late Dr. J. Vernon McGee taught which is the fact that "When it comes to giving, especially finances --- that is where the rubber meets the road.

"Your actions speak so loud, I don't hear a word that you say."

Jam 1:22, But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves.
