The lesson on October 13, 2019 was part 28 of the "Genesis" study. This weeks lesson explored further the attributes of the Devil in how he uses scripture against the believer. What ever form his took before the fall, we learned in Genesis 2:20 "And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." Adam had rejected him at that time so being subtle had worked his way back into the Garden to ask Eve... In Genesis 3:1 we see "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" Satan is attacking the Word of God and using Eve's ignorance of God's word against her. In her response to the Serpent she says in Genesis 3:3 "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." Eve misquoted Gods Word by adding "neither shall you touch it, lest ye die". Satan's trap worked. God never said anything about touching it. In comparison, today Atheist debate about the existence of God and use scripture out of context and those we are debating are not arguing the proper response if they don't use Right Division and showing those scriptures who claim signs and wonders are for a prior calling. Wayne shared a two minute clip of an Atheist arguing that Jesus said you can drink poison and you will not die. He invited Christians to show their faith by drinking anti-freeze. The Atheist was arguing Mark 16 and the Christians response what that portion of Mark 16 was not in the text. Wrong. It is in the King James translated from texts that had it. The argument can only be properly made through Right Division to show context of callings. The scripture reading was from Mark 16:14-18 KJV.
This study consists of two "compound" lessons that were extended into multiple lessons due to the vast amount of material that pertained to understand your calling. They were started on August 3, 2014 and the emphasis on these two lessons "The Others" and "Ye See Your Calling" was to help the christian see that they have been called into a special calling that was hidden before the foundation of the world and revealed after Acts 28 when judgement came upon Israel and God revealed this sacred secret. It has been said the christian must first believe upon Christ as your personal savior, then you must believe upon your calling. The Apostle PAul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus was praying that christians might be given a spirit of wisdom and knowledge so they may see what is the hope of their calling. These lessons help you understand what that calling is... the unsearchable riches of Christ.
Ephesians is a great study for us today because it is the first book of Paul's second ministry to the Gentiles. We know that Paul was called to be the minister to the Gentiles in Acts chapter 9 and Paul declares so in Hebrews 11:13 KJV. Paul had two ministries, the first was to the Jew, and the second was to the Gentile. With his Apostleship to the Gentiles, it took on a entirely new calling in Ephesians, which is considered his Prison ministry.
The Galatians Study, started on April 21, 2013, is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division taught by Wayne Stewart and takes a verse by verse look at the book of Galatians. Using the foundations taught from his previous study, Wayne looks at teaching Galatians rightly divided. This book was written by the Apostle Paul in his first ministry and is defending his Apostleship and the message of salvation by grace during the book of Acts with the churches in Galatia. This study will teach us Galatians from the context of Paul's teaching through the book of Acts.
This study is presented by Dr. Wayne Stewart and it is intended to help the Christian understand the basics of the principles of rightly dividing the word of truth which is mentioned in 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." This is a fundamental skill if you as a Christian are going to handle the word of God accurately. All scripture is written for our learning providing us doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. It is very important to understand what is written to you as opposed to someone else so you may understand why some things promised in the Bible do not seem to work today. This study will help you determine how to understand what is promised to you so you may have peace in your Christian walk.
This study looks at the four days in scripture that involves prophecy and judgment. The current day that we are in is called Man's Day and it is a period governed by grace. The next three days to come are the Day of Christ, Day of the Lord, and the Day of God. It's important to understand these days and who they involve and why there is judgement involved. This study will help you learn about these days using the principles of Right Division. There is a chart on these days in the Chart Room that should help you learn about each day.
