The U, V and W of Right Division

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 U, V and W of Right Division - Part 16

The lesson on May 14, 2017 was part 16 of the "U, V and W of Right Division".  The opening topic for discussion was the Constitutional Convention that is trying to become an event that those who are saying the want to add a balanced budget to the U.S. Constitution but this is a bad idea because of the quality of politicians who would have their way with our founding documents.  There is no guarantee how constrained modern day politicians will be if this happens.  The remaining subject was centered around the Mystery of Godliness found in 1 Timothy 3:16 "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."  The story that explained this mystery was best found in the Mother's Day tie in with the story of Ruth and the kinsman redeemer.  The scripture reading was from Ruth 4:1-5 KJV

The lesson on May 21, 2017 was part 17 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne opens up with an analogy using the Declaration of Independence and how American's declared themselves independent from King George and the British Kingdom.  He explained that after this event there had to be two phases of perfection.  The first was re-adjustment.  You had to come to the reality that you no longer are under the King's rule.  In fact now the government has its authority from the people's consent.  The second was you had to learn the responsibilities and privileges of Liberty under the constitution.  This political adjustment was used to talk about our spiritual perfection with Right Division.  After Acts 28:28, there was an independence declared from Israel and the Gentiles now have a new economy that the Apostle PAul reveals with The Mystery.  Americans would find it foolish to try to goven themselves under the King of England.  Christians shoud find it foolish to spiritually follow what was taught during the Acts period when Israel was the emphasis.  The Preterists try to claim the prophesies were fulfilled in AD 70 because they don't see The Mystery that was revealed and explains why every promise of prophecy was put on hold because God had a secret purpose that was hidden in Him before the foundation of the world.  The scripture reading was from Ephesians 4:1-12 KJV

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 18

The lesson on May 28, 2017 was part 18 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne reviewed what was covered from the last lesson where we learned about a change and what is involved.  The analogy was used of the American Independence from the King of England.  A disruption occurs and then pursuit of the new order.  This pursuit of perfection involves a readjustment and then your faithful following of the new economy which surely follows education.  Today's lesson looked at Ephesians 4:12 KJV "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ".  The Greed word "καταρτισμός," in this passage is a noun that is used for perfection is the only time that it is used in the bible!  We can learn more about that this means from the verb Greek word "Katarti" and Wayne takes us to several places where this word occurs and we see in the context of how this is used to mend what was broken.  The scripture reading was from 1 Corinthians 13:8-13 KJV

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 19

The lesson on June 11, 2017 was part 19 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne took time to recap what he presented at the Truth for Today conference (you may listen to Wayne's presentation here) and the connections he made with other Acts 28 believers, then transitioned into the lesson of looking at the perfection that is talked about in 1 Corinthians 13.  There are many beliefs as to what the Apostle Paul was talking about.  Some say it is the completion of the New Testament.  Others say it is the completion of scripture.  Futher, some even believe it refers to The Mystery.  None of these things apply to the perfection that Paul was writing about particulary since the Mystery was given to PAul after Acts 28 divorcement of Israel and the very nature of that body of truth being hidden in God until He released it.  The perfection we learn is the completed promises that were made to Israel.  The scripture reading was from Jeremiah 31:31-34 KJV
