Genesis - Part 11

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...

Genesis - Part 10

The lesson on April 7, 2019 was part 10 of the "Genesis" study and Wayne continued teaching us about how important free will and the sovereignty of God is in understanding scripture rightly divided.  Further he takes time out to look out how this refutes what the Calvinist believe.  Wayne also shows how God used the free will of Israel in how their unbelief hardened their heart and at the right time, God hardened their heart to allow an evil act like the suffering of the Messiah with the crucifixion of Jesus to happen as was prophesied in Isaiah 53,  This doctrine of free will and God's...

Genesis - Part 9
The lesson on March 31, 2019 was Part 9 of the "Genesis" study.  Today, Wayne looked one of the foundational truth's that was established with Adam in that God created Adam with free will but still remains sovereign.  The Sovereignty of God and the Free Will of Man is an important trruth and we looked at how it was important in Eden and also how God uses man's free will in the hardening of Israel.  Wayne refuted the claim that man's free will ended with Adam's fall and spent the time in scripture show how that was imporant when Jesus came as Messiah to the nation of Israel.  God used their...

Genesis - Part 8

The lesson on March 24, 2019 was part 8 of the "Genesis" study.  This week Wayne gave us a good summary of what we have learned in the first eight lessons of this series and that due to the scriptural evidence, we should not be a young Earth believer.  In fact, we have learned that the evidence shows that Genesis 1:1-5 does not all apply to Day 1. The original creation and overthrow in verse 2 are not part of Day 1.  The length of each day is not 24 hours in length in that we have seen evidence of them extending for some period of time, and that day 7 is still going.  We believe that...

Genesis - Part 7

The lesson on March 17, 2019 was part 7 of the "Genesis" study.  In today's lesson, Wayne looked at the unique words used only in Genesis which is "and God said" and we looked at a concordance of this in Hebrew.  We learned that in the days of re-creation we see how God brackets the days by saying "and the evening and the morning were the xx day".  Right after this statement, the next verse starts with "And God said..." which indicates God's re-creative work starting at the beginning of the next day.  When you apply this grammatical logic, it clearly shows that in Genesis 1:1-2 were his Ex...

Genesis - Part 6
The lesson on March 10, 2019 was part 6 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne took time to dive into the detail around several key words.  First we looked at the phrase "very good" and found it meant functionally good vs. morally good.  Then we looked at Gensis 1:28 where God told Adam "...Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."  The key words of "subdue" and "dominion" were explained by their Hebrew definitions of (kabash כָּבַשׁ) which meant "...

Genesis - Part 5

The lesson on February 24, 2019 was part 5 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne did a quick review of the word "yom" which is translated "day".  We have spent several lessons exploring if this means only 24 hours and we found there are may instances that uses the term day that is longer than 24 hours because based on what we found, Day 7 cannot be 24 hours long.  We cannot say the days of Genesis 1 are 24 hours in length.  In this lesson we looked particularly close at the Hebrew word that stand for "to create" and "to make or refashion" and the times they occur in the Old Testament and...

Genesis - Part 4

The lesson on February 17, 2019 was part 4 of the "Genesis" study.  This lesson reviewed what we have learned already about the creation work in Genesis verse 1 and continued to explore the re-creative work of verses 2 and beyond. We looked into more Hebrew words and were in scripture they occur when reviewing can help us get the clearer meaning of the word and how it may help us interpret them in their context.  The word firmament and heaven were studied where they appeared together.  Wayne was able to show us how he uses his software to look up these references using variables.  We are...

Genesis - Part 3

The lesson on February 10, 2019 was part 3 of the "Genesis" study.  This week Wayne explored the days of creation or re-creation particularly looking at key Hebrew words and deriving further understanding from the words to explain further how God's use of the terms Day and Night do not necessarily mean a 24 hour period.  Further he shows the terminology and how it brackets of the days but day seven when he stops working is not closed off.  God does not get tired but rather He stopped His creative work.  When looking into sixth day, we look in Genesis 2:19-23 KJV "19 And out of the ground...

Genesis - Part 2

The lesson on February 3, 2019 was part 2 of the "Genesis" Study. In this lesson Wayne looks at the recreation of God's original perfect creation.  We looked at the Hebrew letter Aleph (א) that is part of every word in the first verse execept for the word "heavens".  The Hebrew Letter Aleph (א) is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. The letter Aleph is actually the source of the Greek letter Alpha, as you can see by the similarities in the two letters’ names, and the English letter “A”, is therefore ultimately derived from Aleph, as well. The letter Aleph is one of the most important...
