The lesson on December 29, 2013 was part 11 of the "Ephesians" study.  As usual, a review of previous lessons started this lesson reviewing the great truths discovered in chapter two.  One of those themes was the distance the Gentiles had from God which is now abolished.  Israel had the preferred status.  In Ephesians, that now is gone because the middle wall of partition was abolished in Christ.  This lesson starts chapter three and teaches the revelation that PAul the prisoner is revealing the mystery which is different from the mystery of Christ.  This doctrine is sent specifically to...

The lesson on September 23, 2012 was given by Wayne Stewart on Spiritual Health.  Health is very topical for todays world.  As Christians, we recognize that our physical health is important, but rather the spiritual health is what is most important and we find the Apostle Paul says much about this. The scripture reading was from 1 Timothy 1:8-10 KJV "8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God;  9 Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according...

This lesson was taught on May 5, 2013 and is part 3 of the "Galatians" study.  Part 3 finishes chapter one and it looked at the special gospel that Paul was given from a direct revelation from Jesus Christ in Arabia (perhaps at Mt. Sinai).  Paul's gospel was the message of salvation by grace to the gentiles that was spoken about in the scriptures and is explained in Galatians 1:23 KJV "23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed."  The scripture reading was from Acts 9:17-24 KJV "17 And Ananias went his way, and...

The lesson on August 25, 2013 continued in chapter 5 with part 19 of the "Galatians" study.  As usual, Wayne provided a review of the previous lesson covering the end of chapter 4 in verse 26 where Paul was referring to New Jerusalem celebrated as the mother of us all.  He emphasize that the "us" was specific to those in Galatians at that time in Acts.  If we try to apply that to us today, we have denied what happened at the end of Acts.  Specific hopes were identified relating to the bride, the wife, and the body and which hope pertains to whom.  We learned that the New Jerusalem was the...

The lesson on October 20, 2013 was part 3 of the "Ephesians" study and reviewed the high points from the previous lesson before moving into the main emphasis. In Ephesians 4:1, which is the start of the second major section in Ephesians, the word "beseech" means along side.  Paul is calling you alongside your calling whereby you are callled!  You have to understand the calling that Paul is disclosing to you now in this age.  Paul in Ephesians is revealing the Mystery, which was hidden before the foundation of the world (as opposed to from or since) and is a special truth given to Paul the...

The lesson on June 23, 2013 was part 10 of the "Galatians" study.  Chapter 3 is covered, particlarly the part where Paul declares to the foolish Galatians that they should learn the understanding that salvation is by faith and not by the works of the law.  We also learn that when God gave the promise to Abraham, it was declared to him when Abraham was under a deep sleep.  Consequently, there was no mediator involved because God declared his program to Abraham.  It was a one way discussion.  We learn how algebraic math demonstrates that the addition in this passage speaks about law being...

The lesson on December 15, 2013 was part 10 of the "Ephesians" study and continued almost to the end of chapter two. As is usual, we reviewed the previous lesson where we learned the proper interpretation of verse 8 where we learn that "for by grace are you saved through faith" not of yourselves.  The "not of yourselves" applies to the entire idea together.  We learned that we have been created in Christ as a new man who has been prepared for good works.  This is the proper order because your works have nothing to do with your salvation. The remaining part of chapter two involves the theme...

The lesson on May 4, 2014 was part 25 of the "Ephesians" study.  A review was given of the three points we learned from the last lesson.  These were 1) There is a way to learn Christ.  This instance is on the balance with deeds and works but the emphasis is on the pattern when Paul talks about the form of sound words. 2) Renewal occurs in your mind first before the body. And 3) Putting away lying or the lie.  We looked at the structure in Ephesians 4.  This lesson emphasized the walk and we looked at the 7 times walking is referenced in Ephesians.  Walking, redeeming, and submitting was...

This lesson was taught on April 21, 2013 and is part 1 of the "Galatians" study.  This is the introduction to Galatians and tells us why Galatians is a study that we should undertake after understanding the ABC's of Right Division.  We learn about Paul's technique in writing his books and then are provided an understanding of the churches he was writing during the book of Acts. This book was written by the Apostle Paul in his first ministry and is defending his Apostleship and the message of salvation by grace with the churches in Galatia. The scripture reading was from Galatians 3:21-25...

The lesson on August 11, 2013 continued in the study of "Galatians" with part 17.  This covered the end of chapter 4 through verse 1 of chapter 5.  The review started with verse 21 where Paul asked the Galatians if they heard the law having the desire to be under it.  We were reminded of the two houses that Paul explained, one was the house of faith prior to Acts 28, and the other which is the house of God, after Acts 28.  Paul often used proof by contradiction.    False teachers will want to have an affect on you so that you will affect them.  They feed off seeing you being used.  When...
