As such, Dispensationalism provides a philosophy of Biblical history. Our interpretation of Biblical history will use the word dispensation in three related ways: First, dispensation refers to the management God exercises in salvation history. Second, it refers to human partners in God’s plan, called to be stewards of what God reveals to them. Third, it refers to economies of God’s management of the stewards, called dispensations. The great mystery of the story is that God the Father’s management allows evil without directly causing it. Rather, evil challenges God and His creation plan by obstructing mankind in an attempt to thwart God’s plan in history.

Yet we may touch upon related issues in the whole world (like creation, nations, races, or gender, etc.) Since this is salvation history, the focus features two fundamental purposes: First, Creation Purposes – While creation was completed in seven days, it was designed to set the stage for history to follow. And this history is the realm of time and space in which man would mediate God’s rule on earth. This would only be realized in the millennial kingdom of the incarnate Son of God. Second, Redemption Purposes – The enemy of God quickly challenged God’s plan by tempting man to rebel against God and His will. Following man’s fall from God, God purposed to use man in spite of the fall and to redeem man from his fallen condition. Further, redemption includes addressing the consequences of man’s sin in order to restore His chosen partners to their created role as stewards of His revealed will. ...
