In Ephesians 1:10 God exposes, “that in the dispensation of the fullness of time, He might gather together all things in Christ.” God has given two dispensations or Covenants where He revealed Himself. God gave the First Covenant through Moses where the Law required animal sacrifices to cover their sin. The Second Covenant was Jesus Christ coming as the Savior of the world to declare the Father to people. (John 1:18; 3:13-21) Jesus saves those who are willing to give their life to Him by receiving His salvation brought about through His death, burial, and resurrection. (John 1:12; Colossians 1:13-23; 2:9-15; cf. 3:1-17) The first Covenant ended when Jesus was resurrected from the dead and the Second was ushered in. (Hebrews 10:9–10; cf. 9:11-15, 22, 24, 26c-28; 10:19-24)
In the dispensation of the fullness of time, God’s children will all be gathered from the uttermost parts of the world into His Kingdom for the last time. It will be ushered in after the Tribulation period, because the Jews will be saved during the Tribulation Period. (Revelation 6:1—19:21) In Revelation 4, God gives us a picture of the rapture of the Church. In Revelation 21:2-7, 22—22:5, God will reside with His people and the sinful curse will be gone. This will take place when believing Jews and Gentiles, are made fellow heirs in this coming dispensation. (Ephesians 3) Now through giving out God’s Word (2 Corinthians 5:18-21; cf. Luke 4:18) at His resurrection, the purpose for sending Christ was revealed, showing that Jews and Gentiles will be in one body. Before the coming dispensation every knee must bow and every tongue confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:10-11) It will be too late to bow when the Fullness of Time has come!
