Proceeding through the dispensations I seek to present each period as a progression of God's unfolding plan of salvation as man is ready to receive and understand God's message. I also show how each dispensation defeats a particular objection Satan, and man, has against God's judgment of sin. This is the dispensation of Society.
Great Teaching! Well, I'll rephrase and just say you caught me off guard. :-)

Great Sermon! Thank you for your kind comments and continued listening. Sometimes I speak from man's perspective even as the Bible does. God does not think since He knows all and does not change His plan or mind; yet, the Bible depicts this viewpoint from Man's perspective just so we can understand the concept being presented. God is never caught off-guard. This way of speaking is a means of putting present tense events (all events to God are present tense) into past and future tenses for us to understand.
Great Teaching! I've been thinking--‚ÄĚDanger, Will Robinson, danger!‚ÄĚ--man does not like his God-given name because it defines him as a being that is tied to the earth. This name reminds him that he is not the Elohim or even a god. So, he is always (like at the tower of Babel) trying to change his name, that which defines him, to a name that means he is more than man, to a name that's great. But there is only One Who has the right to change our name, the One Who has the Name that is above all names: the Lord Jesus Christ, the One that named man.
Umm...your ‚Äúinstant language day‚ÄĚ comment/joke made it seem like God was caught off guard and had to tweak His plan, and I know from your other messages that you don't, in even a teeny-weeny way, believe that.
Thank you, Dr. Sanders, for making me think about things that I'd accepted without giving any thought about it and hadn't realized that I had.
