“The fifth dispensation covers the period of time from Moses receiving the Law at Mount Sinai to the cross of Calvary. At the death of Christ, the Law was ended.” Exodus 19:1 through Matthew 27:56, Mark 15:41, Luke 23:49, and John 19:30.

“The five tests are trials of conscience, restraint by the Holy Spirit, human government, promise, and the Mosaic Law. As usual man will fail these tests, too. All five of them.”

“The Law was never given to the Jews, or anyone else for that matter, as a means of salvation. It is impossible for anyone to keep the Law. Moses could not keep it. Aaron could not keep it. We today cannot keep it. The only one who has ever been able to keep the Law is the Messiah Jesus Christ. Well, why did God give the Law to begin with if no one could keep it? The answer is found in Galatians 3:19 -‘The Law was given to reveal that we are sinners.’ Paul continues the thought in verse 24, ‘. . .the Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.'”

    Found an interesting page about the Mosaic Covenant that relates to the the Fifth Dispensation…

    “The Patriarch Moses establishes the interaction of the Lawgiver through the one who is the embodiment of the Law–the Guru. Their rebellion and violations to the Laws of Moses established for their atunement with the One God, are recorded together with the judgments of Jehovah. And though the prophets of the I AM THAT I AM were in their midst, their continuing rebellion resulting in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities.”
