The lesson on June 28, 2020 was part 2 of "John's Gospel". Today's lesson was covering chapter 2 of the book "LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME" being an exposition of the Gospel of John by Charles H. Welch. We learn of the prologue specified in verses 1-18 of chapter one of John. Wayne introduces the "Welsharian Perspective" of Acts 28 and draws this out on the whiteboard to help identify the points that Charles Welsh was making. In reading what PAul wrote in 2 Tim 4:1 KJV "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom" Wayne took the time to show the Greek and that it should be translated "who is about to judge the quick and the dead". The eight signs structure were reviewed. Wayne also reviewed the literary structure in all these books are clearly evidence of the inspiration of scripture. Wayne challenged us to read the introduction to review the summary of the Gospels. Matthew: Christ is set forth as King, Mark:Christ is set forth as servant, Luke:Christ is set forth as man, and John: Christ is set forth as GOD. The central tenants of this John is life in Christ. Wayne took the time to show how in John 1:12 KJV, the Greek identifies this verse should have used "Children" vs "Sons" because those who receive life become the children of God and have life. In the Mystery, we have been adopted as Sons of God with a specific hope and calling."12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:". What hope and inheritance do these children of God have? Wayne will explain in latter lessons. The scripture reading John 1:6-14 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.

This series studies the responsibilities of a Christian walk and ends with the rewards that are promised for the proper walk. The series started with five interrogatories of the Christian which asked these questions: What are you doing, How are you doing, Why you are doing what you are doing, Where do I go, and When should I do what I am doing? These questions led up the the last five lessons on your Walk in the Lord.
This series studies the Spiritual Warfare that we battle as Christians that is discussed in Ephesians 6:10:17. Paul was warning the church at Ephesus to be cognizant of the warfare that is taking place with the devil... as he said in Eph. 6:10-12 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
