The lesson on July 7, 2013 was part 12 of the "Galatians" study and began looking at chapter four while completing the third chapter.  It opened with a celebration of July 4th holiday in America, celebrating the fact that 13 colonies rebelled from Britton and became a wonderful nation.  Second, the term hyper-dispensationalism was discussed in how it is used to describe the Acts 28 believers.  Wayne explains why the hyper-dispensationalism term is used in error.  Finally, the study of Galatians continued with an introduction to chapter 4.  An emphasis was given to understanding what...

The lesson on November 3, 2013 was part 5 of the "Ephesians" study and covered chapter 1 through verse 14.  In this section we learn of the witness of the spirit and the security of our salvation when it speaks to the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession.  We looked at the word "mystery" or "musterion" when Paul says the mystery of His will. Some charts were presented showing how many times "mystery" was used and we learn from that analysis that you have to distinguish between Pauls two ministries (Paul - prior to Acts 28, and PAul, post Acts 28, when...

The lesson on March 23, 2014 was part 20 of the "Ephesians" study.  The study continues in chapter 4 we are in the section that begins the practical section of the book.  We are challenged to endeavor to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace.  These truths have been lost over time because this unity has not been kept because there are many examples of those who practice truths that are biblical but are not rightly divided.  We have a measure of grace given to us that we should use to guard this unity of the spirit.  We learn the context of verse 8 indicating that the text...

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 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...

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...

October 20th, 2013

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...

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...
