Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 7

The lesson on January 21, 2018 was part 7 of "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study.  This lesson provided a review of what we previously learned regarding the term "same body" and that it is not referring to the body found in Acts mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12 or Romans 12 but that of a newly created body where Jews and Gentiles are the same.   In this lesson we learn more of the manifestation of the mystery of Ephesians 3, which was not witnessed from the prophets and old testament scripture but hidden in God.  The body you find in Acts is one that was manifested by the prophets and old testament...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 6

The lesson on January 14, 2018 was part 6 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28" study.  In this lesson, Wayne proceeds to explain how we will have errors multiplied when we try to place the church of the one body where Christ is head in Acts due to the fact that several mysteries were revealed in Acts but not the one that is in Ephesians because that was hid in God before the foundation of the world.  If we try to put the church beginnng in Acts, you have the gifts of the spirit present with believers.  You have promises that pertain to the land.  You have Gentiles be a part of Abraham.  After Acts...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 5

The lesson on January 7, 2018 was part 5 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28" study.  This lesson studied the Greek word "musterion" which is "mystery" and looked at the first occurrence Matthew 13:11 where we learn there are many mysteries in scripture.  You must always study which mystery from its context and never assume when you read the word mystery as they are all referring to the same thing.  in fact, the mystery in 1 Corinthians 2:7 is an Acts usage of the term compared to the mystery of Ephesians 3:9 which is a post-Acts occurrence.  In the Ephesians Mystery, we learn that it was hid in...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 4

The lesson on December 17, 2017 was part 4 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study.  Before Wayne got into the study, he made a commentary on Christmas and the pagan components of this holiday and how some Christians don't celebrate Christmas in that it is tainted with pagan traditions like the Christmas tree and Santa Claus.  Wayne makes a point that in today's world where it is trying to eliminate God and Jesus that if we don't use this time of year to witness about Christ and how He became flesh and dwelt among us, we are losing an opportunity.  This week Wayne recaped the lesson last week...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 3

The lesson on December 10, 2017 was part 3 of "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?".  This lesson focused in on looking at the bodies of believers in the Acts period and comparing it to the one body that is in Ephesians which was written after Acts 28.  We learned that there were many bodies during the Acts that had attributes which enabled a member to be part of the head, whereas the one body in Ephesians is when Christ is the head.  The bodies identified in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 are not the same body described in Ephesians 3.  This is a new body created with Christ as the head and did not...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 2

The lesson on December 3, 2017 was part 2 of the "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study.  In this lesson Wayne continues to describe the timeline related to the Acts period, from Acts 2, then 9, then 13 or 17.  It is usually agreed upon within the Mid-Acts groups that Acts 2 is not where the Church began because that was when the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost.  Mid-Acts believers range from Acts 9 thru 17 but there is a problem because Israel is still going because it is Jew first, even when you read of the gospel Paul was preaching in Romans (which was written late Acts period).  The Church...

Mid-Acts or Acts 28 - Part 1

The lesson on November 26, 2017 was part 1 of "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?".  This is the first lesson on the study of this question, when did the church of which we are a part of today begin?  Mid-Acts or Acts 28?  Wayne takes the time to provide a backdrop for this issue and explains the Acts period and provides the highlights of actions during this 40 year period after the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  A person of significant interest is Saul who was persecuting Christians on behalf of the Chief Priests of Israel.  Saul received permission from them to pursue those in...

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 36

The lesson on November 19, 2017 was part 36 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne took the first 22 minutes of the lesson to give an example of how we could minister Right Division in a way that would involve animation and graphics that would answer a question or belief in such a way that they understand it in the context of what right division does for the student of scripture.  He gave an example of some believe that scripture teaches only one gospel.  Wayne give a sample script how we might explain it in a way that exposes the statement to be false by showing the answer...

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 35

The lesson on November 12, 2017 was part 35 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne returned from a Truth for Today Bible Conference in Phoenix, Arizona and recaped his two sessions he taught entitled - Election “to be…” OR “not to be…”?  You may review the two lessons from the Carolina Bible Group AZ Conference site. Once the review was over, Wayne continued with the lesson and continued to look at how God used hardening to accomplish his purpose.  The emphasis is on how God hardened people after...
