The lesson on October 18, 2020 was part 2 of the summary on "John's Gospel" study. In part two of this summary Wayne continues to share what we learned through this study in John's Gospel and it included some clarity Wayne had not seen before. He wants to clarify what are the big take away from this study. One of which is the adoption not found in John! We learned of these adoptions and how it is different than the way it is used in scripture. It means the Father has the right to declare how one might be placed to be a chief inheritor. John does not generally refer to the believer as “son”. There are several adoptions in scripture. 1) Notice that the bride is associated with New Jerusalem Gal 4:26 and Rev 21:2. 2) Flesh Rom 9:4 and 3) Spirit Gal 3:29; 4:5, 23,26 (Spiritual seed of Abraham). There are three callings in scripture: 1) The elect nation - “peculiar people”. 2) The elect remnant - “The Bride”. 3) The one body - “peculiar people”. We learned that there is a timeline connection to Messiah as Bridegroom from Matthew 22:1-6 KJV where John's Gospel is the Guest ministry! The scripture reading was from John 21:18-22 KJV
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.
This study looks at the book of Revelation from the perspective of Man, His Nature and Destiny which means the lessons will look at the judgments revealed in revelation as it pertains to man. Whether or not the perspective of eternal torment for the lost is accurate as opposed to just perishing with the appropriate amount of punishment. This study is best followed by the Man, His Nature and Destiny to provide the context of how by looking at Revelation we may expand our understanding of Man's destiny.
This study looks at Man, His Nature and Destiny. It comes after the First Corinthians study which looked at the resurrection and the attributes of the resurrected body. This study will look at why God created man, what was his purpose in the plan of God. We will learn abut the tri-part attributes of a human with the body, soul and spirit. Death and resurrection will be analyzed and how one might find immortality. This study will be surely important to grow in your understanding of God's plan for you if you choose to pay attention and respond to the truth of it.
