Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

The Word dispensation comes from the Greek word (oikonomia) for Stewardship – ‘house management.’ In this case the one managing is __________________, and what is being managed are the different ages the Bible speaks of.
Danny Campbell’s definition of Dispensationalism –
Dispensationalism is God’s creative management of the ages in keeping with His own eternal plan to save repentant humans, incorporating their good and bad choices.
2 Key Features of Dispensationalism:
Takes Bible texts at their ________________ meaning. Therefore Bible passages are read literally unless the context indicates otherwise.
Maintains a clear ________________________ between Israel and the Church. Unfulfilled Promises made to Israel will be fulfilled. Dispensationalists reject the idea of the church replacing Israel.
Clarifying items about Dispensational teaching:
Salvation is always by grace through faith based on Jesus’ atoning death.
The call in every dispensation is to believe God and love Him.
Then each dispensation has specific ____________________ to obey.
“The basis for salvation in every age is the death of Christ; the requirement for salvation in every age is faith; the object of faith in every age is God; the content of faith changes in the various dispensations.” -Charles Ryrie
