Genesis - Part 33

Genesis - Part 33

The lesson on November 17, 2019 was part 33 of the "Genesis" study.  The culmination of this lesson introduces the "Pleromoa" but before we got there Wayne reviewed what we had previously learned about how important Right Division of scripture is when studying because you will be in danger of receiving doctrine out of context.  We had previously looked at the lineage of Cain and Seth and found their posterity with people sharing the same name.  They are separate people.  We looked at the word "Church" and identified at least three churches mentioned in scripture that all had different attributes.  To really make this clear, we looked at 1 Corinthians 12:28 (which was during the Acts period) and the gifts that were given to it and compared it to the church which is His body and Christ being the head and the gifts that were given to this body (in Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV).  With Right Division we learn what is different and which one applies to us today in our calling.  In this body, we learn of the fullness or "pleroma" that the Mystery brings with it.  That will be next weeks lesson focus.  The scripture reading was from Colossians 1:14-19 KJV

"14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: 15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. 19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;"
