Dispensation: Greek: οἰκονομία (oikonomia) 1. the management of a household or of household affairs… administration, dispensation.
That brings us up now to the next dispensation (see slide #9). New revelation brings new responsibilities, a new test, and it will end in a failure related to that particular test. So we will just run through the issues related to this new dispensation, the dispensation is called the Dispensation of Conscience or Self-Determination. It covers the period from Genesis 3:9 to Genesis 8:14. Let’s change that to Genesis 8:19. Genesis 8:14 is when they come off the ark, when God tells Noah to come out of the ark, but it really doesn’t actually change until God begins to speak to them again in Genesis 8:20-21 when Noah builds the altar to the LORD. So we will take it through Genesis 8:19 and then Genesis 8:20 will start the next one.
