The lesson on June 28, 2020 was part 2 of "John's Gospel". Today's lesson was covering chapter 2 of the book "LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME" being an exposition of the Gospel of John by Charles H. Welch. We learn of the prologue specified in verses 1-18 of chapter one of John. Wayne introduces the "Welsharian Perspective" of Acts 28 and draws this out on the whiteboard to help identify the points that Charles Welsh was making. In reading what PAul wrote in 2 Tim 4:1 KJV "I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom" Wayne took the time to show the Greek and that it should be translated "who is about to judge the quick and the dead". The eight signs structure were reviewed. Wayne also reviewed the literary structure in all these books are clearly evidence of the inspiration of scripture. Wayne challenged us to read the introduction to review the summary of the Gospels. Matthew: Christ is set forth as King, Mark:Christ is set forth as servant, Luke:Christ is set forth as man, and John: Christ is set forth as GOD. The central tenants of this John is life in Christ. Wayne took the time to show how in John 1:12 KJV, the Greek identifies this verse should have used "Children" vs "Sons" because those who receive life become the children of God and have life. In the Mystery, we have been adopted as Sons of God with a specific hope and calling."12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:". What hope and inheritance do these children of God have? Wayne will explain in latter lessons. The scripture reading John 1:6-14 KJV
This study was taught by Dr. McLain in June, 1986 and is about knowing the "Will of God" in your life. As Paul is our example, we should be filled with joy, in whatever state we find ourselves and to glorify God. Each day, time should be set aside for an appointment with God to talk over plans for the day and to ask Him to energize His purpose through us. God hasn't asked us to "do" anything.

Many books have been written about Romans because of its importance. In the canon, Romans follows the Gospels and the Acts because it is so important that has so many great themes in it. Romans talks about the wrath of God, the Gospel of God, it talks bout Sin and Sins, and takes us back to the covenant with Abraham at Sinai, then to back to Adam. When it takes us back to Adam, it brings us forth to the one man who destroyed sin.
This study was presented on May 6, 1984 regarding the complexity of God. The Apostle Paul expressed this best when he wrote in 1 Timothy 3:16 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." Further Paul says in Colossians 2:2b-3 "2 ...
This study was given by Pastor Clifford McLain from May 22, 1986 through August 1, 1986 covering the subject of prophecy in our time. The motivation from scripture is found in 1 Timothy 4:1-6; 13 which reads "1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2 Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3 Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4 For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:5 For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer. 6 If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained... 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."
