The lesson on May 2, 2021 was part 13 of the "Acts - When and Why?" study. Wayne opened up with a review of the previous lessons and what we have learned in studying the Acts and determining what epistles that were written by the Apostle Paul in performing his Acts ministry of going to the Jew first and then to the Gentiles. This lesson eventually gets into looking at when Corinthians was written. Prior to that, Wayne took time to show how he mentioned his trip to Ephesus in Acts 19 (second missionary journey) and there were many examples of powers that were manifested to confirm the message that Paul was carrying to Israel as Jesus Christ was the Messiah. He then showed how when you cross the great divide of Acts 28, PAul reveals the Mystery in Ephesians and Colossians. This was a fresh revelation not in the scriptures but hidden in God! PAul had the challenge to speak to the group of believers that were in Acts and then explain that they now have a new hope, but it was not found in the Old Testament scriptures. To help with this, God gave gifts after Acts 28 in the form of Apostles and Prophets to help "adjust" the believers into this new hope. Even PAul said in his prayer in Ephesians 1:18 that "the eyes of their understanding being enlightened..." realizing that it would require a spiritual unveiling of this new truth so they would be able see the final body of truth that was revealed by Paul. This Mystery completed the word of God (Colossians 1:25-26 KJV). This lesson was a good review of the transition of hope found in Acts to the new hope revealed in Ephesians and Colossians. The scripture reading was Acts 18:1-11 KJV
Clifford McLain took everyone through a chapter by chapter study of 1 Corinthians back in 1981 and those lessons have been made available for Right Division. In this series there are 17 lessons that were given each Sunday from January 11, 1981 to May 31, 1981.
The curse and the promise of a savior (Genesis 3:14-24) shows that the message is clear in that Adam and Eve could not stand (consist) apart from Christ. “So He (God) drove out the man” (Genesis 3:14-24). The promise of the savior through the seed of the woman begins a unique battle that will be waged by Satan to destroy the savior. It begins with Cain who slew Able (Genesis 4:1-12).
Here is an audio series that Dr. McLain presented at Northside Bible Church from January 13 through September 28, 1980 on The Acts of the Apostles. This chapter by chapter study covers 36 lessons on Acts which is crucial to your understanding of right division. This study was given prior to Dr.
This seminar covers the very last prophecy given to Israel in the Old Testament--a significant fact in itself. Christians today are looking for the so-called "rapture" and the return of the Lord, and for us to "meet Him in the air." In this step-by-step study, we discover that not only is this not possible today, it doesn't even affect Christians.
This study was given by Dr. McLain in his Friday Night Bible Study sometime in 1971--the exact date is unknown. This study involves some Bible aerobics so it's advisable to keep your Bible open and ready. He gives scriptural proof that Christ Jesus is both the written and incarnate Word with proof texts from both the old and new testaments.
