The lesson on December 8, was part 35 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne takes little time to review what we have learned before but gets into the detail of our fullness being of the church which is his body where Christ is the head. In this lesson we learn to identify the callings of various churches that have been identified in the Old and New Testament and the responsibilities and characteristics that these churches were given and what purposes they had. You have to rightly divide the churches found in scripture so you will not expect results coming from the doctrines given to that church in that age. It all led up the an introduction to the three spheres of blessing. One was those given to Israel which consists of a land grant and Jerusalem where Israel is above the Nations.

The scripture reading was from 2 Timothy 1:8-14 KJV

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.
