An overview of God’s Revealed Plan and Hidden Purpose in the ages. This chart is a visual representation of the Bible. “A picture is worth a thousand words” is the old saying. Well, when it’s the Word of God thats being drawn, the “Words” are worth significantly more than the picture. Nevertheless, it does help to view the different dispensations of God in this fashion.

This chart was presented by Mike Penny during his October 2009 seminar on Numbers in the New Testament. It looks at the number of occurences for topics in the Gospel Period books, the Acts Period books and the Post Acts Period books and shows when something has changed statistically speaking. This is a great way to look at dispenstional changes by seeing how some topics are not present in the Post Acts period books of the Bible.

The One Way Road Map was created for Church Camp in 2003. It was built around the scripture in 2 Timothy 3:16,17 KJV "16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works." Once saved, a Christian is on a journey and this chart has them starting out on His Righteousness Toll Road (since you are saved by His Righteousness) and the toll is alreay paid.

Then you pass through Reproof Railway because you have learned enough scripture to see where
There are two natures in a Christian, the old nature you are conceived with and the new nature you receive when you become a Christian. Psalms 51:5 KJV "5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me." Ephesians 1:13; 4:30 KJV "1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 4:30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption." God created man with a three-fold nature. These are the Body, Soul and Spirit. When you are concieved in your mother's womb, you have these three chambers but only two are active, the body and soul. These pertain to your old nature. The spirit chamber is empty and becomes filled with the Holy Spirit when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Ephesians 1:3 tells that you are sealed with the Spirit until the day of redemption. Great news! On
