The lesson on October 18, 2020 was part 2 of the summary on "John's Gospel" study. In part two of this summary Wayne continues to share what we learned through this study in John's Gospel and it included some clarity Wayne had not seen before. He wants to clarify what are the big take away from this study. One of which is the adoption not found in John! We learned of these adoptions and how it is different than the way it is used in scripture. It means the Father has the right to declare how one might be placed to be a chief inheritor. John does not generally refer to the believer as “son”. There are several adoptions in scripture. 1) Notice that the bride is associated with New Jerusalem Gal 4:26 and Rev 21:2. 2) Flesh Rom 9:4 and 3) Spirit Gal 3:29; 4:5, 23,26 (Spiritual seed of Abraham). There are three callings in scripture: 1) The elect nation - “peculiar people”. 2) The elect remnant - “The Bride”. 3) The one body - “peculiar people”. We learned that there is a timeline connection to Messiah as Bridegroom from Matthew 22:1-6 KJV where John's Gospel is the Guest ministry! The scripture reading was from John 21:18-22 KJV
This study was given by Dr. McLain from May 20, 1984 through September 16, 1984. This is one of the richest parts of scripture and demonstrates in practical ways what it means to believe. Faith is the substance or title deed of our assurance of things we hope for. Hope has not been realized yet because we are still in this dead body, but one day we shall see Him face to face. In the meantime, we have our title deed--our assurance. In this study, Dr.
These lessons were taught by Dr. McLain on various occasions during his ministry. We all wonder about what happens when we die. Some people believe in soul sleep, others have a vague impression of what heaven is like, others reject hell as a real place, however, we as Mystery believers have a much more wonderful prospect... we shall be made manifest with Him in glory.
These lessons were taught by Dr. McLain in October, 1984. As mystery believers, we have final instructions from God Himself--actually a charge. We have a two-fold ministry—to be ministers of the reconciliation to the world, and secondly, we are to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ.
The following is an endeavor to set forth as simply as possible what are the prominent features of the New Covenant. In doing this, the subject has been treated as though it had not been previously considered. Several scriptures, the testimony of which are most important, have been frequently quoted to the extent of repetition, but we do not feel that a complaint will be made by any sincere seeker for truth.
These lessons were taught by Dr. McLain in answer to questions about why God allows suffering. Suffering is one of those things in life that is an instrument God uses to perfect his purposes. Hopefully, these lessons will give enlightenment to this troubling subject.
