Genesis - Part 12

The lesson on May 12, 2019 was part 12 of the "Genesis" study.  In today's lesson, Wayne takes time so show us the relationship between the temple and Eden.  This is a good lesson to follow the previous one where we learned the "Temple and Its Importance to Us" which Wayne presented at the Truth for Today conference. We reflected on the blessings of Mothers Day but dived right into the scriptures regarding the Tabernacle.  The first section recapped the previous lessons in that the pattern that God repeats of how He uses mans free will where they choose to deny his prompting but when they...

The Temple and Its Importance To Us

The message on May 5, 2019 was a review of what Wayne presented at the Truth For Today conference.  He took time to identify the Temple and how it is important to us today because we learn a very important aspect of the concept of the Temple means we can understand so much more of the place for us in God's working. The scripture reading was from John 20:26-31 KJV

"26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy...

Easter Genesis Gospel

The message on April 21, 2019 was about Easter and Wayne was able to share the parallel between Genesis and John's Gospel.  Wayne reflects on the special Christian message at Easter particular to the resurrection promise we share in relation to the pain we all have shared with the death of a loved one.  In the promise of eternal life in Christ through the resurrection we can celebrate the gift that God gave us.  As we are in the Genesis study, there is a distinct parallel between Genesis and John's Gospel.  Wayne takes the time to go through the Easter message in John's Gospel and compares...

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...
