The lesson on June 2, 2019 was part 15 of the Genesis study. Wayne recapped this week how Genesis brought us to the Temple sub-study he has been focusing on these last several weeks because in Eden God placed the Tree of Life and it had the power to overcome death by sin that was incurred by Adam when he sinned. That is why God placed the Cherubim in Eden to guard the Tree of Life in case sinners would eat of it and live forever. There is the primal need for all of us to get access to the tree of life and that is what we have with access to the true Temple in the body where Christ is head. In this review, Wayne shows the full context of how the Temple is a part of today's calling in a post Acts 28 context. He then takes time to look at the Ark of the Covenant which was put in the Temple and we learned where God opened the portal between where He dwells in the heavenlies and between the Cherubim on the top of the Ark above were the blood was offered to forgive Israel of their sins when the priest made a blood offering. Lastly he pointed out the there is no written evidence that the Ark was put back in the second Temple because their was commentary about the first Temple was filled with the glory of God but the second, not so much. The scripture reading was from 1 Samuel 4:19-22 KJV

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.
This is a new series that covers the book of Colossians. This is an important book because it is a prison epistle that is written to us. All scripture is for our learning but all scripture is not written to you. We don’t obey the scribes and Pharisees that sit in Moses’ seat… these instructions were to Jesus’ disciples at that time in scripture. Paul is an apostle to the Gentiles.
After the Timothy Study, it became apparent that some effort needed to be put forth to clarify for the Christian today would understand the hope we have in Christ Jesus. This hope is different than the hope that was promised to Abraham. Our calling is different than that of Abraham and Israel and the calling determines your hope.
