Acts 29 - Part 12

Acts 29 - Part 12

The lesson on June 24, 2018 continued the "Acts 29" study with part 12.  In this lesson, Wayne continues to teach us of the progression of judgement that Isreal received during the Acts period all the way through Acts 28.  He builds his point about DeJure and DeFacto in how starting in Matthew 22 with the marriage prepared for His servents and they would not come and that they made light of it. Then the call was to the highways to bring in guests to the wedding.  The schematic Wayne uses to express his new understanding of how the judgement came down on Israel was updated with timelines showing when was Paul's first Roman imprisonment and when he died.  The study of the Old Testament and the prophets to find out the answers to these questions has really paid off:  1) How does Israel become Lo-ammi –does it happen all at once?  No it does not. 2) What happens when Israel/Judah becomes Lo-ammi? The Lord continues to use his Prophets during this Lo-ammi period. 3) Does the prophecy stop? No it doesn't. 4) Does God stop using Israel’s prophets? No.  We see from Old Testament scripture that he still uses them.  The scripture reading was from Hosea 2:1-6 KJV "1 Say ye unto your brethren, Ammi; and to your sisters, Ru-hamah. 2 Plead with your mother, plead: for she is not my wife, neither am I her husband: let her therefore put away her whoredoms out of her sight, and her adulteries from between her breasts; 3 Lest I strip her naked, and set her as in the day that she was born, and make her as a wilderness, and set her like a dry land, and slay her with thirst. 4 And I will not have mercy upon her children; for they be the children of whoredoms. 5 For their mother hath played the harlot: she that conceived them hath done shamefully: for she said, I will go after my lovers, that give me my bread and my water, my wool and my flax, mine oil and my drink. 6 Therefore, behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns, and make a wall, that she shall not find her paths."
