The lesson on September 20, 2020 was part 14 of "John's Gospel" study. This week, Wayne takes us through the prayer the Jesus makes to the Father in chapter 17 of John. We have learned that there is a parenthesis between chapter 13 and 17, where in 13:1-3 the theme is commenced the "hour has come". Then in John 13:4 thru 16:33 the parenthesis consists of the disciples being instructed, encouraged and prepared and then in 17:1 the "hour has come" theme is resumed. We has seen a similar parenthesis in Ephesians 3:1-13 is a parenthesis of thought between the prayer of the Apostle PAul. The Scripture reading was from John 17:24-26 KJV
Michael Penny presented this material during a seminar that was held in Oklahoma City on October 12-13th, 2005. Mike was invited to present a study based on a book he wrote entitled “Approaching The Bible”.
Paul’s prison epistles is a crucial study in the message for today because the Apostle Paul was designated to the Gentiles and he claimed he was given a special message revealed after Acts 28:28. The body of truth he reveals is called the Mystery. Here is an important series studying the prison epistles.
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.
