The lesson on October 13, 2019 was part 28 of the "Genesis" study. This weeks lesson explored further the attributes of the Devil in how he uses scripture against the believer. What ever form his took before the fall, we learned in Genesis 2:20 "And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him." Adam had rejected him at that time so being subtle had worked his way back into the Garden to ask Eve... In Genesis 3:1 we see "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" Satan is attacking the Word of God and using Eve's ignorance of God's word against her. In her response to the Serpent she says in Genesis 3:3 "But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die." Eve misquoted Gods Word by adding "neither shall you touch it, lest ye die". Satan's trap worked. God never said anything about touching it. In comparison, today Atheist debate about the existence of God and use scripture out of context and those we are debating are not arguing the proper response if they don't use Right Division and showing those scriptures who claim signs and wonders are for a prior calling. Wayne shared a two minute clip of an Atheist arguing that Jesus said you can drink poison and you will not die. He invited Christians to show their faith by drinking anti-freeze. The Atheist was arguing Mark 16 and the Christians response what that portion of Mark 16 was not in the text. Wrong. It is in the King James translated from texts that had it. The argument can only be properly made through Right Division to show context of callings. The scripture reading was from Mark 16:14-18 KJV.
When approaching scripture, you can do it dispensationally which looks at the different periods of administration of God.
This series studies the importance of a resurrection to the believer. The Sadducees didn’t believe in a resurrection yet Paul said it best, if we have hope only in this world , we are all most miserable (1 Cor 15:19). This series explains why you should believe in a resurrection. It also studies “when” it happens and “who” is involved.
According to 2 Timothy 2:15, we need to study the Bible to be approved unto God, handling His scripture accurately and applying it in our lives so we can be about His business and grow as Christians. The study of “Dispensations” is just recognizing that the administrations of God change over time.
The attack on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, DC on 9-11-2001 has caused many people to ask the question “Is this the End Times?” There is much uncertainty and unrest in the world but one thing is certain... Christ Jesus and His Word. Here is a collection of studies that cover prophecy and the events surrounding the “End Times”
This series of lessons covers the chronology of the New Testament books written during the Acts Period. The chronology of Acts and those books that were written during that period cover most of the New Testament books. It is really important to understand the Acts Period Epistles to follow the principles of Right Division.
