Dispensations

I wrote the following: ”I asked if my revelation regarding Dominions and Dispensations when studying the Hierarchy of Angels was correct and was told, “Yes.” There are eight major dispensations starting with Adam and ending with Joseph Smith, with the seventh about to begin. These dispensations are broken down with “Times,” in which certain things transpire. I am grateful for the clarification.” (A Witness of the Temporal Dispensations, pg. 15)

There are eight total dispensations. Joseph Smith is the head of the sixth, which is ending. Each dispensation is the opening of a seal which restores a specific priesthood. The priesthood which will be restored in the Seventh Dispensation is the higher priesthood of Melchizedek. This is required to usher in the Times of the Gathering of Israel and establishment of Zion.

“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” Revelation 7:2-4

From the servants of God will be selected a group that will go forth and gather the remnants of the House of Israel. This will usher in the Seventh Dispensation before the coming of the Lord. The Last Dispensation begins at the end of the Millennium.

  1. I enjoy your shared writings so much. Thank you. However, this one is not clear to me. How is Joseph Smith head of the 6th dispensation, but the also the ending of the eighth dispensation? I am sorry, but I must have missed something. Can you help me, please?

  2. Joseph is the head of the 6th dispensation, but the next two are not the same person.

    As we seek the Lord on this topic, specifically the identity and circumstances that will surround the appearance of the Lord’s choice servants and His “strange act”, is there any reading you would recommend to get us asking the right questions to the Lord? For example, are there types and shadows you see in Jeremiah and Uriah, Abinidi and Alma, or others? Is Nephi using Isaiah to help us understand the appearance of new servants among His apostate, covenant people in the last days?

    Please can you point to any further understanding… Who is the root of Jesse to whom the Gentiles shall seek? How might he be recognized? Are there any clear scriptural types of him?

  5. There will arise a prophet from Israel. Like A Moses, who at first the people ignore, but becomes their voice and protector.

    Thank you. Have you been taught about time? How it works, I’m Just curious, I don’t know why but I’m been very interested on thistopic. Also, we are so asleep, there is so much pain in Guatemala right now, and I see people so disconnected, but I know there is pain everywhere, I just wish I could have the power to go back in time and safe as many people as possible, especially children, but I know that God is perfect and has a plan for everything and everyone. This has been weighing heavy on my heart.

    Are those prophets already born? Are they already adults? Is this “Moses” a fifth state being?

  10. I have not been taught about time, but have experienced strange anomalies during times in the Heavenly Realm. That is a good question. Yes, it is heart breaking to see the suffering of those in Guatemala. In some ways it has brought that nation closer together.

  12. I’ve been pondering Doctrine & Covenants 101:44-62 lately, a parable of the nobleman and olive trees. I’ve felt that the sixth dispensation began with the creation of the vineyard in the latter days, which is the later day church established by Joseph Smith. If that is true and we follow the parable through to today, we are presently in a state of being “very slothful” and not following the Lord’s commandments – at least not those concerning important things like “raising a tower and setting a watch,” whatever thing that represents in our collective observance of the commandments. It also means the vineyard is about to be run through and taken over, if not already by the cares and worldly standards of Babylon. The servants to be called, and the “servant” who the Lord puts in charge of the rest, I would assume are the Davidic Servant and other gatherers who are sealed by the higher priesthood. Do you have any comments on this parable and where we are in the scheme of it? Thanks so much again for your insights.

  13. It is also connected to Jacob 5. Those who have ears to hear and eyes to see will comprehend the meaning of such things.
    When reading prophecy, such as the kind in D&C 101, Jacob 5, Isaiah, Revelation, etc., the Lord can help us to formulate the questions to ask Him what to do. It is not meant to be perfectly clear. We must learn to receive personal revelation.

    Will these prophets interact with / receive support from the LDS church or other churches during the upcoming events, or will they be acting independently on authority received from the Lord?

    It is the position of some people, loosely interpreted from several verses in the Doctrine and Covenants and elsewhere, that Joseph Smith (either resurrected or condescended) has a future role to play, in the flesh, among the gentiles in the great work of gathering. Are you able to comment on this idea? Along those same lines, will there be another called to preach repentance IN POWER to the gentiles, or has the gentiles opportunity to accept the fullness already past?

  18. There has been a specific effort during the Times of the Gentiles to preach repentance to all the children of men. The new coming effort is focused upon the gathering of the House of Israel. This will come from the four corners of the earth to all nations, as the Elect (those who made the Everlasting Covenant before birth) are gathered and prepared to come to the Holy City. Joseph Smith, as a dispensational head, now officiates over the Principalites. This is an important role which all dispensation heads do as they see to the preparations of the House of Israel on the other side of the veil. He has a role, but it is not here in the flesh.

    Could you please elaborate on the “higher priesthood of Melchizedek?” My understanding is that this is referring to either the Patriarchal Priesthood, or a fullness of the Priesthood, etc. It basically unlocks more than authority to direct – which we have now – but power to act (ie: more gifts of the spirit and eventually the sealing power). Thanks.

  22. As most know, all priesthood comes from the same, but is divided according to the level we can use. The names we assign mean little. The Higher Priesthood is sometimes called Patriarchal, but is as much Matriarchal. To have the fullness is to be omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent.

    Are we yet in the sixth dispensation, awaiting Adam-ondi-Ahman? There is a common belief among my friends that the seventh seal was opened with the dedication of the Palmyra Temple on April 6, 2000; this is due to what President Hinckley is rumored to have said privately while there. [The April 6th reference is incorrect, but I do not have permission to give the date of the opening of the seventh seal. PR]
