The lesson on August 18, 2019 was part 20 of the "Genesis" study. This weeks lesson opened with reference to a useful website for a scientific argument for intelligent design. The Discovery Institute (discovery.org) has good material to use in your witness of Creation by using scientific facts to argue without bringing in the Bible to those who may be unbelievers. in this way, you can stand and represent creation without the audience immediately shutting down. Wayne then reviewed of the missionary trip that the Apostle PAul probably took after the close of Acts which included the time expressed by the Acts 29 Study. We then looked at how Adamic Man was created in the image of God. How is God, who is a Spirit compared to the clay that was formed to make Adamic man? We learned from John 1:1-4 KJV that in the beginning was the word and the word was God and all things were made by Him. In studying single cell organisims, we find machines in the cell called Flagellum that move information to construct our DNA. These machines represent the information that is contained in the word of God. In this way, having organized information at the cellular level, we are in the image of God. We then closed on the Fall of Adam which set up next weeks lesson. The scripture reading was from John 1:1-4 KJV
Here is a new audio series on The Inspiration of Scriptures. It begins with an overview of the Reformation and then transitions into the inspired Word of God. As it says in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 KJV "14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
Here is a new audio series on the Coming of Elijah. Malachi 4:1-6 KJV says "1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
The Apostle Paul said it well in Romans 7:18-25 (KJV) “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Here is a series of lessons based on the book “All Truth” written by J. Eustice Mills. It studies how scripture and truth in scripture is revealed progressively It’s very important to understand how scripture is divided and truth is revealed. Christians often think of this as the King James divisions between the Old Testament and the New Testament. However, God has different divisions in scripture based on time (chronologically) and calling (a targeted message or body of truth e.g. direct mail). This series takes you on a journey to learn what scripture has identified as All Truth.
The Trinity Study Series. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity teaches the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons in one Godhead. The doctrine states that God is the Triune God, existing as three persons, or in the Greek hypostases, but one being. Each of the persons is understood as having the one identical essence or nature, not merely similar natures.
