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
This audio study given by Clifford McLain in December of 1983 examines the traditional Christmas Story and provides insight into the true date of our Lord's birth. It also looks at tradition and how it places the wise men at the manger but they did not show up until the baby Jesus was two years old. Pastor McLain wrote a book about this topic and it has sold out several times. September is a good month for this study since you will find Jesus birthday was at the end of this month on September 29th, 4 BC!
This study called "God Spake" was taught by Clifford McLain in 1983 following the "Sacred Secret" study and was based on the scriptures in Hebrews 1:1-3; 2:1-3 & Galatians 1:11,12 & Ephesians 3:1-3;7-9. Pastor McLain in his intro for this study, explained that some years back, he read an article entitled "The Greatest Thing in the World" which was written on the 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians which is the chapter on love...
This study was taught by Clifford McLain in a series from 1982-1983 recorded on cassette tapes converted to digital audio for your benefit. The Sacred Secret study includes 40 lessons and teaches about the body of truth that was given to the apostle Paul to be revealed in Ephesians to the Gentiles. Ephesians opens with "1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Chri
This study "From Egypt to Canaan" was given by Dr. McLain in 1982 and taught how the Nation of Israel was brought out of Egypt in the seventh month of the secular year and God established a new religious calendar in the process. The first month of the new year corresponded to the seventh month of the calendar year, which was also known as the sacred year. It was a picture of the fact we have a physical birth by nature and we have a spiritual birth in Christ. Everything begins in the world and Egypt was a wonderful analogy of the world where Gods people were to be taken out of Egypt never to see it again. This study is a great review of how God dealt with Isreal from Egypt to Canaan and is a picture of how mankind demonstrates his character towards God.
This study on Prophecy was given by Dr. McLain in response to the popular belief during the early 1980's. While prophecy is for those who can eat strong meat, the belief that was popular among fundamental christians, involves the rapture, the tribulation and the millenium, all in that order. It's not so much that this is wrong, but it does not include prophecy that will happen and needs to be clarified for todays Christian so he may be properly instructed. This study starts with truths that are not prophetic but lay the foundation for understanding the events that will unfold for us at this time.
