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.
