The message on April 4, 2021 was entitled "The Messiah Must Die" and was the Easter message for 2021. Wayne opened the message to provide us several places to look in Old Testament scripture to learn about a priest upon his throne and why the prophesied Messiah must die. There are some really phenomenal passages in scripture that talk about this. We looked in Zechariah 6:11-13 where the Messiah shall be a priest upon his throne. We also looked at Hebrews 9:13-14 KJV where it explained that how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works..." This is the great thing that happened with Christ, who is the Messiah and the anointed one by his own blood he entered into the holy place just once to forgive us our sins. In John 20, we read of Mary Magdalene who came upon the empty tomb and ran to tell Peter and John that they took away Jesus body. Peter and John ran to the sepulcher and when John saw the empty tomb, he believed. It does say that in verse 9 "For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.". Guess what? We really need to know the scriptures and believe them! They all end up believing, even Thomas. The Messiah is the Christ and the anointed one and a healer. We saw some scriptures where they pursued the use of physicians vs. praying for healing. There are so many aspects of how Christ Jesus heals us but it is so very important to understand that even thought God can perform miracles today, we don't have the power of healing that was present during the Acts period. After Acts 28, the dispensational change after the revelation of the Mystery, Gods healing is up to Him. We learn of this through right division. The scripture reading was from John 20:1-10 KJV

Many books have been written about Romans because of its importance. In the canon, Romans follows the Gospels and the Acts because it is so important that has so many great themes in it. Romans talks about the wrath of God, the Gospel of God, it talks bout Sin and Sins, and takes us back to the covenant with Abraham at Sinai, then to back to Adam. When it takes us back to Adam, it brings us forth to the one man who destroyed sin.
This audio series studies this question and looks at the scriptures to determine how God sets up Nations and what has to happen when God abandons Nations. One Nation established by God is the Nation of Israel and we learn much about this question from them. In Deuteronomy 8:11-20, we read of a warning given to the nation of Israel regarding their mindset towards the Lord when things are good.
