The lesson on April 18, 2021 was part 12 of the "Acts - When and Why?" study. Wayne focused on clarifying on the phrase "Kingdom of God" and why you cannot take what was said in the eighth time this phrase in Colossians 4:11 to what was used by Paul into the previous seven times that were referenced in the Acts period epistles. We then look at the context of the seven times Paul used it in Acts to get the context of what it was encompassing in the Old Testament scriptures. Wayne also majored on the transition of a body of Christ prior to Acts 28 and then after the Mystery was revealed to PAul the prisoner. PAul was reminding Timothy to stir up the gifts that he was given when adjusting the believers who needed to be perfected in adjusting to a new hope that was revealed in the Mystery. When PAul wrote Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV he was explaining why the gifts that were given after Acts 28 included "...some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" There are no apostles and prophets around today. What we have left in this calling is evangelists, pastors and teachers. The Apostles and Prophets had gifts from the Acts period that could be stirred up. That is not the case now because it passed away with that generation. The scripture reading was from Romans 3:29-31
This study started on January 10, 2021 and looks at the book of Acts from a perspective of the Apostle Paul's epistles. It will establish when the Pauline book was written during the Acts timeline and answer why it was written in relation to the context of the Acts. This study will provide a roadmap to properly understanding the doctrine of the Acts period and how the transition to the Gentiles is observed but always in the relation to Israel and the Kingdom of God.
A new study was started on November 1, 2020 on the topic of "Hermeneutics". The goal for this study is to teach how we should come to the proper interpretation of scripture so we may rightly divide the word of God. The Greek word for Hermeneutics has the Greek god "Hermes" in it and reflects what they believed about him in myth, which was that Hermes functioned as the emissary and messenger of the gods and was often presented as the son of Zeus and Maia, the Pleiad.
This study was started on June 14, 2020 and the intent is to recognize the different perspective this gospel book has verses Matthew, Mark and Luke. John is clearly written to the Gentiles and it represents the highway ministry that is going on along side the Mystery. In this study, you will find the calling of John 3:16 KJV is always active and will provide salvation to the one who may never understand The Mystery.
Right Division Snippets are designed to look at a topic in scripture from a Right Division perspective. These snippets are short in nature but packed with slides of compelling scriptures that point out how to view the topic in proper light of the age in which we live. Snippets are usually published weekly but can be more or less depending on the inspired need. You may download the videos and have fhem playing in the background of your next Bible Study meeting before you get started. 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
This study will look at the book of Genesis in relation to our calling today. There are so many important issues regarding doctrine in the Bible and in relation to Right Division. In the first chapter we find it starts with creation and in the last chapter records when Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. So much happened inbetween and this study will look at all of it. Since there at 50 chapters in Genesis, much thought will have to be given to this study if it covers a chapter a week. In the end, this study will
