The Divine Outline of History

The diagram below shows the panorama of history from the divine viewpoint from eternity past to eternity future.
 
We are currently living in the Dispensation of the Church, specifically the Age of the Local Church.
 
The Dispensation of the Church began on the Day of Pentecost almost two thousand years ago and is now in its final phase, the Age of the Local Church, where stewardship of the Word of God has been handed to all born-again believers of this present age.
 
During the Dispensation of Israel, Jewish believers had stewardship of the Word of God. During the first phase of the Dispensation of the Church [the Age of the Apostles], the Apostles had stewardship of the Word of God. During the Age of the Local Church, all born-again believers, i.e., members of the Body of Christ, have stewardship of the Word of God.
 
The Dispensation of the Church will be followed by a return to the Dispensation of Israel, specifically the Age of Tribulation, where God's wrath will be poured out on all unbelievers before the ushering of the Age of Millennial Reign, where Jesus Christ establishes His Millennial [1000 Year] Kingdom on the earth.
 
The Age of Millennial Reign will be followed by the destruction of the current heavens and earth and creation of the new heavens and earth. The believing remnant who are still alive at the end of the Age of Millennial Reign will be transported over to the new earth to begin the Dispensation of the Christ also known as the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times. These believers will make up the first generation of one thousand generations of born-again believers with perfect positive volition toward Jesus Christ. The volition of these believers will be locked into the positive polarity for the duration of the Dispensation of the Fullness of Times and even into eternity future. Starting with the first generation, these believers entering into the new earth will never again exercise negative volition toward Jesus Christ. These believers will still possess their mortal [flesh and blood] bodies but will live forever due to their eating from the Tree of Life, which is present on the new earth. These believers will populate each new generation by natural, biological procreation. Each offspring of these believers will express faith alone in Christ alone and, thus, be born-again, and each will be perfectly positive toward Jesus Christ alone. Like their parents, the volition of each offspring will also be locked into the positive polarity, for a thousand generations and even into eternity future.

These thousand-generation believers in their mortal [flesh and blood] bodies will be living alongside believers in their immortal [resurrected] bodies, which includes we who are members of the Body of Christ and all born-again believers of other Dispensations.
 
The Dispensation of the Fullness of Times will end when the thousandth generation offspring becomes a born-again believer, having expressed faith alone in Christ alone. At that point, Christ, Who is given stewardship over the Kingdom, hands it over to God the Father, whereupon the two will share a co-regency forever into eternity future.
 
The Dispensation of the Fullness of Times is a period of time when perfect positive volition and everlasting life are realized, represented by one thousand generations of true, consistent worship of Jesus Christ by mortal believers who never die. Every mortal person of the thousand generation will have believed in Jesus Christ alone and will forever [for all duration of time forward] be perfectly positive toward Jesus Christ alone.
