Easter holiday celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ. In the resurrection of Christ, we learn in Colossians 2:9-15 KJV "9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: 11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ: 12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.
The lesson on April 14, 2019 was part 11 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne summarized the focus on Free Will and God's sovereignty in how He does not cause sin or evil acts but once men choose to do evil, as God He then can further harden their heart until they perform an evil act but God can use it for good. For example we see "eyes have they closed" which was ordained by man! As the evil act gets closer, "eyes are further closed by God". Then when the evil act happens it is ordained by God for use to His purpose. We looked at Romans 5:12 and studied the phrase "for all have sinned" and looked at two issues. Are we guilty of Adam's sin (in one man) or are we guilty only of our own personal sin (because of one man)? We looked at Deuteronomy 24:16 which indicated the latter. We are not held responsible for Adam's sin but we do suffer from it. The calvinist prefer the that we are guilty of Adam's sin. Wayne was using the fact that we are guilty only of our own personal sin could possibly solve the issue of the death of a baby or child. God who is righteous will resurrect the aborted child, baby or adolescent child who die before they commit their own sin. The scripture reading was from Romans 5:12-16 KJV
Practical lessons and Right Division is focusing on the walk we should take when being worthy of the calling Right Division makes clear to us in this post Acts 28 age. In the previous study we looked at the post Acts timeframe and learned how the Apostle PAul revealed the Mystery of Ephesians 3:9. Afterwards, when you read Ephesians 4:1 KJV, PAul is saying "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,".
