“For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.:
V25Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;
V26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself.”
The writer of Hebrews has a clean understanding, that the dispensation of grace, that the writer was living in, was also the same dispensation of time before the end of the age.
We are nearing the year 6,000 since time was recorded.
And we believe (based on the apostles writings and the testimony of Jesus) that the resurrection of Jesus Christ was the beginning of the dispensation of grace - the end of the age.
Up until the resurrection of Jesus 5 previous dispensations of time passed, covering approximately 4,000 years.
1st Edenic covenant or dispensation
2nd Adamic or conscience dispensation
3rd Noahic or human government dispensation
4th The Abrahamic covenant
5th Mosaic or the law covenant
And the 7th, where we are headed, is the kingdom age.
The previous 5 covenants took around 4,000 years of human history. We are in the dispensation of grace and its been nearly 2,000 years since the beginning of the dispensation of grace.
The dispensation of grace has taken about 1/3 of recorded time, whereas the previous 5 dispensations took only 2/3's.
We are at the end of the age of grace.
God is pouring out His Spirit upon us like never before in all history. We need to receive this once in all creation blessing. This is not a once in a lifetime thing, or once in a century, or once in a millennium, this is a once in all creation thing.
If you ignore so great a time as this, you have not seen, nor do you understand what God is doing, not only globally, but in your own life as well.
