"What does Chronological mean in our study of the Dispensations?"

Chronology is the study of certain events or  doctrines in the order of their occurrence,  especially in the doctrinal order as well as the historical records of our time.

"Timing of God" = how to become a mature believer which causes all of us to seek out the plan of God.

There are a lot of believers who have fallen into the trap of becoming too familiar with the man of God that they end up like the believers in Ephesus, they begin to lose their first love; REV 2:1-5.

Early Ephesus Church = When they began to lose their first love and they ended up back in the Cosmic System  of Satan, only to hear what they had been doing and why they fell away from the plan of God.

We continue with the rebuke that our Lord uses to handle the different situations that the believers in Ephesus were about to fall back into the vomit that they originally had been saved up for a rainy day.

2PE 2:22, It has happened to them according to the true proverb, "A dog returns to its own vomit," and, "A sow, after washing, returns to wallowing in the mire."

PRO 26:11, Like a dog that returns to its vomit Is a fool who repeats his folly [foolish].

There are a lot of different ways that we can approach or identify the subject of Dispensational Truth.

Many of you have had experiences of the supernatural at times and for years I have quoted a principle of what the believer can expect as he or she goes forward in the plan of God.

"The Christian Way of Life is a supernatural way of life and it demands a supernatural means of execution."

The apostle John gives us some insight as to the works not the sins but the works that the believers at Ephesus were performing overtly but not inwardly.

There are some things or some time that you never really knew how important the spiritual life is for God's people until you saw it and recognized that it was truly needed in the spiritual realm.

He knew that He provided for everything, everywhere, with "His Divine Blessings guarding and protecting the glory of the Throne Room of God.  

He used the children and His divine Plan for all mankind under the super-natural power and wisdom that the "Divine Plan of God" came through  for them right on Time.

In REV 2:2, The Lord says to those believers who were not ready to hear what our Lord is about to say to them that He noticed some things that they had lost.

REV 2 & 3, the believers who were using the Lord tried to influence them by making sure that "He was the Messiah that most Jews were still waiting for.

When you have certain needs that the needs you have or may not have cause others to be afraid while you still have the desire to follow the Lord Jesus Christ any time that you want to.

No matter what, our Lord is doing, He is now residing in a renewed conflict of riches that hopefully we will all learn together some day = Why?

Our Lord used Divine Viewpoint to help us solve the problems that He as we continue in this study.

It is without a doubt one of the most accurate and precise prophecies in the entire "Word of God."   

This is a signal to keep things in order while those of us on the battlefield, hopefully are waiting to be called "by the Lord" or maybe even "for the Lord."

Main issue = "What does your mind and heart say or think that glorifies our Lord with answers to your questions like "Where do you stand in a relationship with others?"    

What really matters = How your relationship with people or your fellowship with God is developed as you grow in the grace of God in all areas of your spiritual life with God.  

Instead of murmuring and complaining about others, like your family or  friends,  or your social life, etc. =  You learn to master your  fellowship and your relationship with our Lord.

If we do not get along with others, then you must establish some strength and security in the "Divine Viewpoints of life" but we should never want to see ourselves anything less then what our Lord sees in us.

Do you see what the Lord sees when He is having fellowship with us at certain times = Do you see yourselves as our Lord sees you?

1CO 15:10, But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me did not prove vain; but I labored even more than all of them, yet not I, but the grace of God with me.

Waiting "for the Lord" Jehovah (Lord) or [Elohim (God) = the Lord (Jehovah) is your God [Elohim], so that you and I are waiting for the Divine Viewpoint to live our spiritual life.

They are waiting for the "Divine Viewpoint of B.D. and they are ; waiting to take over and allows anyone of us to make our day for anyone who desires to do so 2PE 3:18.

Prophecy is one of the ways that God's people can discern whether or not a prophet is a man of God or whether or not a prophecy is from the Lord.

This was a warning to all of God's people "to be careful," especially  when someone says that they are prophets who when they speak, they speak with grace and prophecy.

They want to speak out and they want to speak prophecy even if we discover that they are frauds and liars who just want  to take over the principles ; MAT 7:7-23; DEU 18:15-20.

Ultimate Stage  =  they were unable to be concerned about certain blessings because of all the warnings that Jehovah Elohim, = the Lord (kurios) your God (Elohim) had given them.

We all need to "build ourselves up by means of doctrine," or else we will end up in  "allowing ourselves to be pushed around and down" by means of religion and self-righteousness.

As the Jewish people had to learn that very same doctrine that Moses and the Jews were waiting upon the Lord for Him to get them out of Egypt (Cosmic 1- Cosmic 2 open up.

They are used to manipulate those individuals who are living as "loser believers" when they have the grace of God and the power of God right by their side, to use as believers who desire to get to know their Lord and Savior.

There are hundreds and hundreds of believers who have the power and the ability to become "winner believers"  if they desire to be a "winner believer"  rather than a loser believer.

The point here is that all of us have the right, and the power, and the authority, and the privilege of going forward rather than going backward.

Because these types of individuals will travel anywhere  for "Divine Approval"  who will do anything that the arrogant believer tried to do.

The answer to that is that they need to learn HOW to "Be Happy" and  How to take someone or some things and rejoice with or without their consent.

Because of them =  No matter what our Lord used to get his point across, He always did it, one way or another.

As we continue with our study on the ministry of the Dispensation of the H.U. of our Lord and Savior which I like to call: The introduction to the mystery doctrine of the Church-age.

We need to note some of the uniqueness of our Lord's physical appearance as well as the fact that our Lord used "whatever"  to "whomever"  He chose."

Those fantastic and marvelous  blessings that our Lord said "He could" or "He would" use certain doctrinal guidelines for us to continue with Him and for Him.

We know that even our Lord was rejected by the Jews, His very own people who turned on Him.

Isaiah comes into the picture and our Lord said certain things through the prophet Isaiah concerning the Jews and their rejection of their Lord.

This is a passage that I will never understand especially when those who are involved are members of the same family, or  members of the same church, even the same friends.

They always seem to come short of the grace of God even though they heard it before.

It is usually a difficult time for those members who are involved with some difficulties like having a difficult time themselves in the very same areas that they are judging others for.

While they forget certain doctrinal principles that the Lord has provided just for them as well as just for us.

Usually, they think more highly of themselves then what they ought to and therefore their arrogance blinds their arrogance; Why?

GAL 6:3, For if anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.

Many Christians are controlled by someone or something and as a part of their norm and standards that they live by.

They usually refuse any help because of "not knowing" something  like what others are thinking, saying, or what others are doing or going to do.

Being controlled by other individuals feeds to their overestimation of themselves followed by their overestimation of others, and because of their overestimation of their ego.

They usually judge others for doing what they do and then they claim their right to do whatever their arrogance requires.

NEH 9:16, "But they, our fathers, acted arrogantly; They became stubborn and would not listen to Thy commandments."

PSA 31:18, Let the lying lips be dumb, which speak arrogantly against the righteous With pride and contempt.

PSA 73:3, For I was envious of the arrogant, As I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

PSA 119:69, The arrogant have forged a lie against me; With all my heart I will observe Thy precepts.

PSA 119:78, May the arrogant be ashamed, for they subvert me with a lie; But I shall meditate on Thy precepts.

PRO 8:13, The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way, And the perverted mouth, I hate.

PRO 28:25, An arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will prosper

"by means of that same doctrine"  of knowing the Truth that our Lord uses to save or to ridicule sets us all free, even if the believer knows that he is known it I known as "The Candy l apart" the truth.

"to build ourselves down by means of the truth, or to tear ourselves down which means that if we are still alive after making it with our opposite number and then having the same attitude that the plan of God goes on - with or without us.

This was actually something that our Lord taught that very few individuals knew about because of their arrogance and their refusal to follow the Lord.

OBA 1:3 "The arrogance of your heart has deceived you,

JUD 1:16  These are grumblers, finding fault, following after their own lusts; they speak arrogantly, flattering people for the sake of gaining an advantage.

PRO 22:1  A good name is to be more desired than great riches.

LUK 16:15, And He said to them, "You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts; for that which is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God."

Men said in MAT 9:34 that our Lord was of the devil, "He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons."

MAT 11:19, "The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, 'Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of taxgatherers and sinners!'

In MAT 26:65, they said that He blasphemed, "Then the high priest tore his robes, saying, "He has blasphemed!"

They said in MAT 26:66 that He deserved to be dead, "They answered and said," He is deserving of death!"

In MAR 3:21, our Lord was accused of being nuts and insane, "And when His own people heard {of this,} they went out to take custody of Him; for they were saying, "He has lost His senses."

In MAR 3:22, they said He was demon possessed, "And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, "He is possessed by Beelzebul"

In MAR 3:30, they said our Lord has an unclean spirit, "He has an unclean spirit."

In LUK 15:2, He had a reputation for hanging around with sinners, "This man receives sinners and eats with them."

In LUK 23:2, they accused of being unpatriotic, And they began to accuse Him, saying, "We found this man misleading our nation and forbidding to pay taxes to Caesar,"

In LUK 23:5, they accused of always stirring up trouble, But they kept on insisting, saying, "He stirs up the people,

In LUK 23:14, they said he cause people to rebel, "This man is one who incites the people to rebellion,

In JOH 7:12, they said He was a cult leader and He leads multitudes astray, "He leads the multitude astray."

In JOH 8:48, The Jews answered and said to Him, "Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?"

In JOH 10:20  And many of them were saying, "He has a demon and is insane. Why do you listen to Him?"

Nothing is more valuable to the individual than the character behind the name.

The apostle Paul said to the Legalistic judgmental Christians at Corinth,
1CO 4:3, "But to me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by any human court"

ECC 7:1, A good name is better than a good ointment, And the day of {one's} death is better than the day of one's birth.

Thracian tribe (a pre-Greek tribe), the Trausi, actually celebrated their birthdays as days of sadness, and the day of death as a day of rejoicing.

PSA 116:15, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."

When believers die, they have no appointment with judgment, they will not be judged or condemned, ROM 8:1.

HEB 9:27-28, teaches that death is a terror to the unbeliever.

When we die, we are face to face with the Lord,
2CO 5:8.

What's better, the day of your birth when you were face to face with a strange doctor and relatives or the day of your death when you will be face to face with Him who loved you and gave Himself for you!

REV 21:4, teaches there is no pain, sorrow, or embarrassment beyond the grave, (except for ashamedness at the Judgment Seat of Christ).

We have an eternal inheritance, 1PE 1:45.

We have a new home,
JOH 14:13.

We all will have a perfect home in eternity.
JOH 10:28.

We have eternal life,
1JO 5:11-12.

ECC 7:1, A good name is better than a good ointment, And the day of {one's} death is better than the day of one's birth.

This is not true for the unbeliever such as Judas, the Bible teaches in
MAT 26:24, "It would have been good for that man if he had not been born."

REV 21:8 "But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death."

PSA 116:15, "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints."

John put it this way in REV 21:4 "And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain"

ISA 29:24, They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine.

ECC 7:2  "It is better to go to a house of mourning Than to go to a house of feasting"

When Solomon says that a good name is better than a good ointment, he's is talking about something of value and something that was attractive to the rest of the human race!

This is not being popular with your friends or your peers.

MAT 9:34, He's of the devil;
MAT 11:19, He's a glutton and a drunk;
MAT 26:65, He blasphemes;
MAT 26:66, He's
deserving of death!"
