The lesson on November 10, 2019 was part 32 of the "Genesis" study. This week Wayne took us through chapter 4 and 5 which gave us the posterity of Cain and Seth and showed that their were some descendants who had similar names and in some cases the same name like Enoch and Lamech. The reason why God inspired Moses to provide this detail shows that the line of Cain and Seth are similar but not the same. We see the longevity of Adamic man after the expulsion from Eden which decays over time. God wanted us to learn of the doctrinal differences of these two lines. Wayne challenged us to compare the differences in scripture so you may rightly divide. The example he showed us was the name "church". We looked at several passages referring to a church but Wayne to the time to give the context of each reference so we learned the word "church" means simply a called out group. Many religious denominations are claiming to be part of a church that is actually a group called for Israel. You can't claim to have keys to a church that were not given to you. The scripture reading was from Hebrews 11:1-6 KJV
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.
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. The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Tim.
