Genesis - Part 25

The lesson on September 22, 2019 was part 25 of the "Genesis" Study. In today's lesson, Wayne gave us another perspective of a serpent's attributes before the interaction with Eve.  Adam had named every beast of the field, and by naming them understood their attributes, which usually was reflected in the name Adam gave them.  The curse that God put on the serpent after the fall was that he would crawl on his belly and eat dust.  Well then, before then he must have been able to speak and move around without slithering. Perhaps he was originally rejected by Adam and the serpent thought he...

Genesis - Part 24

The lesson on September 15, 2019 was part 24 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne continued the focus on the Devil and his Angels (Demons) and pursued the question of how they can influence us today in our calling (the Mystery). In this review, Wayne recaps the power that the Devil has in tempting Jesus, and how he has a place reserved in heaven where he accuses the brethren daily (e.g. Job) but in the main focus on today's lesson was to look at what we learned in our Acts 29 study.  We learned that those were possessed with a demon could be helped by the power of prayer and fasting.  Gifts...

Genesis - Part 23
  The lesson on September 8, 2019 was part 23 of the "Genesis" study.  This weeks lesson in Genesis Wayne teaches us that the personage of Satan or the Devil is real.  It is not an analogy of the old nature of man as some teach.  The Devil had huge power as shown in Matthew 4:8-9 when he appeared to Jesus and "showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor" and said in verse 9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me".  You cannot say that Jesus was only dealing with his old nature.  Wayne provided us the context of how the Devil and his Demons...

Genesis - Part 22

The lesson on September 1, 2019 was Part 22 of the "Genesis" study.  We were introduced to the Devil in last weeks lesson and the focus this week was to explore where the Devil, also known as Satan came from.  We learned that when God gave the Devil his judgement in the role of the fall of Adam, He described him in Genesis 3:14 saying "...Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:"  God was describing his position spiritually vs physically.  The origin of...

Genesis - Part 21

The lesson on August 25, 2019 was Part 21 of the "Genesis" study.  As usual, Wayne reviewed what we learned last week after he gave us a quick lesson on the hymnal we sang entitled "In the Sweat, By and By".  The phrase "by and by" in scripture means immediately.  We have come to think this term means "over time".  This is a phenomenon that we have witnessed where words have changed their meaning over time.  It would behoove us to take all the modern bibles we have today and study how they have changed the meaning of words improperly.  Wayne prefers the original King James vs. the errors...

Practical Lessons and Right Division - Part 6

The lesson on August 19, 2018 was part 6 of "Practical Lessons and Right Division" study.  This study has been looking at different aspects of our practical walk in this age with our specific calling.  It is important that we learn of the distinctives or our calling how we may then walk worthy.  Wayne continues the focus on Ephesians 3:3-21 and the very unique truth that PAul is sharing with us and how God is wanting to reconcile "The All Things" which includes Adamic man on the Earth but also Principalities and Powers in Heavenly Places.  We learn how important the role of Headship plays...

Genesis - Part 20

The lesson on August 18, 2019 was part 20 of the "Genesis" study. This weeks lesson opened with reference to a useful website for a scientific argument for intelligent design.  The Discovery Institute (discovery.org) has good material to use in your witness of Creation by using scientific facts to argue without bringing in the Bible to those who may be unbelievers.  in this way, you can stand and represent creation without the audience immediately shutting down.  Wayne then reviewed of the missionary trip that the Apostle PAul probably...

Genesis - Part 19

The lesson on August 11, 2019 was part 19 of the "Genesis" study.  Pastor Wayne returned from his holiday after visiting Rio de Janeiro in Brazil and then Barcelona, Spain.  He shared how they visited Christ the Redeemer statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  It was crowded and difficult to get a good picture.  It is unfortunate that Brazio is a crime ridden country and they were warned to watch their bags carefully while they toured Rio.  The second leg of their holiday took them to Barcelona.  Wayne was excited to research the Apostile Paul's undocumented missionary journey...

Genesis - Part 18

The lesson on June 30, 2019 was part 18 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne announced that we will be traveling the next three weeks for his summer break from his teaching responsibilities at University and left us with a lesson focused on the eternal life we have in resurrection.  Eternal life was given at the tree of Life in the Garden of Eden and the opposite of eternal life is perish.  We learned about how there is a voice in Greek and that is has three tenses.  An aorist tense which is a secondary tense, and accordingly, in the indicative mood it indicates passive action, there is active...

Genesis - Part 17

The lesson on June 23, 2019 was part 17 of the "Genesis" study.  Last week Wayne finished he study of the temple and brought the attention back to the creation of Adam.  In the temple lessons we learned that God's perspective was that his desire is for the world to be saved through the work of Jesus and the resurrection and reviewed verses in John's gospel that pointed this out.  In Genesis 2, Wayne reminded us the formula for a living soul which was Man being formed out of clay then God added the breath of life which then caused Adam to become a living soul (in Genesis 6, it says the...
