The second Dispensation: Conscience:  

This dispensation extended from the fall of man until the flood. Man now was possessed with a “conscience”, an instinctive knowledge of good and evil.

During this period the wickedness of man so increased upon the earth that GOD “repented that he made man” Genesis 5:32and Noah was five hundred years old; and begat Shem, Ham and Japheth”, Genesis 6:5-8 “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repented me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord”

The judgment ending this dispensation is the “Flood”. Some thoughts to consider; (1) the people of the earth probably had close to one hundred years from the time that Noah was advised of the coming judgment before it happened, (2) Lamech, Noah’s father was “777’ years when he died, just five years before the flood came, (3) This dispensation lasts 1526 years.
