Eph 3:4 Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) 3:5 WHICH IN OTHER AGES WAS NOT MADE KNOWN unto the sons of men, AS IT IS NOW REVEALED unto his holy apostles and prophets BY THE SPIRIT;
HERE IS THE SUPPORT SCRIPT OF WHAT THE APOSTLE WROTE
Dan 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and KNOWLEDGE SHALL BE INCREASED.
HERE JESUS INFORMS US THAT IT'S ACCORDING TO THE KNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE ACCESS TO, THAT IS WILL BE REQUIRED OF YOU
Luke 12:47 And that servant, which KNEW HIS LORD'S WILL, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 12:48 BUT HE THAT KNEW NOT, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever MUCH IS GIVEN, of him shall be MUCH REQUIRED: and to whom MEN HAVE COMMITTED MUCH, of him they will ASK THE MORE.
GOD RESTRICTS INFO*
Dan 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 12:9 And he said, GO THY WAY, Daniel: for the words are CLOSED UP and SEALED TILL THE TIME OF THE END.
EVEN JESUS RESTRICTED KNOWLEDGE TO HIS APOSTLES WHEN ASK A QUESTION THAT DID NOT APPLY TO THEIR TIME
Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together , they asked of Him, saying Lord wilt thou AT THIS TIME RESTORE THE KINGDOM TO ISRAEL? 1:7.And he said unto them, IT IS NOT FOR YOU TO KNOW THE TIMES or THE SEASONS, which the Father hath put in his own power.
THE MOST HIGH GOD BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH REBUKES ISRAEL CONCERNING WHAT IS KNOWN AND WHAT IS NOT KNOWN AND WHEN IT IS KNOWN
Isa 48:5 I HAVE EVEN FROM THE BEGINNING DECLARED it to thee; before it came to pass I shewed it thee: lest thou shouldest say, MINE IDOL HATH DONE THEM, and MY GRAVEN IMAGE, and MY MOLTEN IMAGE, HATH COMMANDED THEM. 48:6 Thou hast heard, see all this; and will not ye declare it? I HAVE SHEWED THEE NEW THINGS FROM THIS TIME, even HIDDEN THINGS, and THOU DIDST NOT KNOW THEM.48:7 THEY ARE CREATED NOW, and NOT FROM THE BEGINNING; even before the day when thou heardest them not; lest thou shouldest say, Behold, I knew them. 48:8 Yea, THOU HEARDEST NOT; yea, THOU KNEWEST NOT; yea, from that time that thine ear was not opened: for I knew that thou wouldest deal very treacherously, and wast called a transgressor from the womb. 48:9 For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.
NOW EACH DISPENSATION OF GOD CAN BE LIKEN UNTO A PICTURE FRAME AND HERE'S WHY
Heb 11:3 Through faith we understand that the WORLDS WERE FRAMED BY THE WORD OF GOD, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
NOW LETS SEE WHAT HAPPENED TO A FRAME/ A WORLD
2 Peter 3:6 WHEREBY THE WORLD THAT THEN WAS, BEING OVERFLOWED WITH WATER, PERISHED: 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, RESERVED UNTO FIRE against the DAY OF JUDGMENT and perdition of ungodly men.
AND THEIR ARE FRAMES aka AGES TO COME
Eph 2:7 THAT IN THE AGES TO COME HE MIGHT SHEW THE EXCEEDING RICHES OF HIS GRACE in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
AND HERE'S PROOF OF THE DIFFERENT TIMES/AGES OR FRAMES
Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device. 17:30 And THE TIMES OF THIS IGNORANCE God winked at; BUT NOW COMMANDETH ALL MEN EVERY WHERE TO REPENT:
EVERYTHING HAS IT'S TIME*
Ecc 3:1 TO EVERY THING THERE IS A SEASON, and A TIME TO EVERY PURPOSE under the heaven:
NOW BY THE WORD OF GOD WE WILL GO FROM ETERNITY INTO THE DISPENSATIONS OF THE HOLY BIBLE
