The lesson on November 10, 2019 was part 32 of the "Genesis" study. This week Wayne took us through chapter 4 and 5 which gave us the posterity of Cain and Seth and showed that their were some descendants who had similar names and in some cases the same name like Enoch and Lamech.

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 ...
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.
