The message on December 9, 2018 was on regarding the thought of "I Shall Be Satisfied". Wayne going into the Christmas season will soon vacation to his homeland down South but has one more week of giving finals at his day job. In class, some students have approached him to consider changing careers because statistics is used in the profession of an Actuary, and they make so much more money. In response, Wayne expresses how much he loves his job and is satisfied teaching because of his love for it. In fact, many people are chasing wealth and happiness through things but we learn in scripture how vain that is. Ecclesiastes teaches us that all is vanity under the sun but we are satisfied because of what we believe in the resurrection when we will be changed. Wayne is quite satisfied knowing that upon death he will wait for the Lord Christ Jesus to call him forth and be changed to have his new body that will be fashioned to continue his calling. This message was one of celebrating how the Creator pierced the vanity and became flesh when the word dwealt among us and then died for our sins and was raised so that we might recieve the resurrection that the Apostle Paul was explaining in Philippians 3:1-12 KJV. The scripture reading was in Ecclesiates 1:1-11 KJV
This study started on October 21, 2018 and it is taking a focus on the three places in scripture where the Apostle Paul uses this term. This study will provide the context of these passages and help the student of scripture gain confidence about this subject through the right division of scripture.
Practical lessons and Right Division is focusing on the walk we should take when being worthy of the calling Right Division makes clear to us in this post Acts 28 age. In the previous study we looked at the post Acts timeframe and learned how the Apostle PAul revealed the Mystery of Ephesians 3:9. Afterwards, when you read Ephesians 4:1 KJV, PAul is saying "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,".
This study looks at Paul’s latter ministries and journey(s) which would have occurred after the close of Acts and the writing of the last seven books Paul wrote before he was executed by Niro. The goal of this study is to find evidence of Paul's fourth and perhaps a fifth missionary journey and when The Mystery was revealed to him during his journeys. Why this study? We need answers to some important questions: When did the church which is his body begin? This is essentially the same as asking – when was the mystery of Eph 3:9 revealed?
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
