With respect to the divine outline of history, we are currently living in the Dispensation of the Church, specifically the Age of the Local Church. The Church, also known as the “Body of Christ” or “royal family of God,” is comprised of all believers dead and living in this present dispensation. Presently, God has appointed the Church official designated stewardship over the Earth.

“And He [God the Father] put all things in subjection under His [God the Son, Jesus Christ’s] feet, and gave Him [Christ] as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.” (Ephesians 1:22-23, NASB, emphasis added)

By virtue of our position in Christ as His Body and future Bride, we share in His sovereignty.
