This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
The lesson on April 2, 2017 was part 11 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". We have learned how they mysteries of scripture should be used to properly answer the Preterist position that all prophecy was fulfilled in AD 70. This weeks lesson continues to look at the Mystery of God and how that is fulfilled in Christ. We discuss how God knows the future and that God could control every aspect of the future by programming man but he didn't in that Man was made as a free agent. We review how God controls the times and the seasons. and he does this while maintaining man’s right to choose! God allows man to rebel against his will and through His secret purposes brings to pass other aspects of His will. We learn how prophecy is fulfilled or delayed and when it is delayed, a “mystery” is invoked. At the end of the lesson, Wayne begins to look at the role of Elijah and how he is an important piece if Israel would have repented and accepted Jesus as Messiah. The scripture reading was from Malachi 4:1-6 KJV
