The lesson on May 10, 2020 was part 54 of the "Genesis" study. This was the first lesson provided to an assembly fresh off the COVID-19 lock-down since churches could now hold their services with appropriate distancing. Wayne had been teaching virtually in the Genesis study and he picked right up where he left off last week introducing us the clustering biblical truths properly. Since Genesis introduces us to Abram who becomes Abraham and a father of the multiplied seed where Israel is meant to be a blessing to the nations. We looked at how all of the revealed plan of God was for Israel to fulfill their position as a kingdom of priests but this was all contingent of their repentance. The lesson ends with verses from Leviticus where God says if you repent then he will remember. The scripture reading was from Romans 9:8-13 KJV
"8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this is the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son. 10 And not only this; but when Rebecca also had conceived by one, even by our father Isaac; 11 (For the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) 12 It was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. 13 As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated."
