Genesis - Part 34

The lesson on November 24, 2019 was part 34 of the "Genesis" study.  Being that is the week of Thanksgiving in America, Wayne started his lesson with a commentary on the founders of this country, having traveled so far in a ship that could be considered a dingy by today's standards.  These founding fathers suffered the harsh winter in this new land where half of them perished.  Why?  They had a hope that served as their motivation.  In the end, the US Constitution was created as the supreme law of the land that expressed their hope in a new republic.  Wayne also shared he received good...

Genesis - Part 33

The lesson on November 17, 2019 was part 33 of the "Genesis" study.  The culmination of this lesson introduces the "Pleromoa" but before we got there Wayne reviewed what we had previously learned about how important Right Division of scripture is when studying because you will be in danger of receiving doctrine out of context.  We had previously looked at the lineage of Cain and Seth and found their posterity with people sharing the same name.  They are separate people.  We looked at the word "Church" and identified at least three churches mentioned in scripture that all had different...

Genesis - Part 31

The lesson on November 3, 2019 was part 31 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne took us back today to reemphasize why Right Division is so important when we are studying scripture.  In Genesis, the doctrine we learn of being a "keeper" is reflected in the sin that Cain had before he murdered Abel.  Can was a tiller of the ground which meant he had the responsibility to be his brothers keeper which is what he responded to God with after he had killed Abel and received the curse that God put on him.  We too as Christians have the responsibility of reading scripture and understanding doctrine that...

Genesis - Part 30

The lesson on October 27, 2019 was part 30 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne opened up with a comment that a lot of what we have covered in the Genesis study is that of beginnings. Much of what we learn in Genesis relates to events during the Acts period and Acts 28.  Further, right division of scripture is so important that Christians need to rightly divide the ministries of the Apostle Paul. Then while diving into Genesis, we learned more of the double curse the ground that God had put on the Earth.  Next, we lean of the Hebrew word behind "keeper" which was "shamar".  Wayne points out all...

Genesis - Part 27

The lesson on October 6, 2019 was part 27 of the "Genesis" study and Wayne opened with a review of the context of the question, "Why are their gifts apparent after Acts 28 when the Mystery had been given"?  This is thoroughly explained in the Acts 29 study but the first 20 minutes of today's lesson revisited the impact of the believers who had been given gifts prior to Acts 28 that flowed into the new calling and needed to be built up, that is why PAul wrote in Ephesians 4:12 "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:".  Post...

Genesis - Part 25

The lesson on September 22, 2019 was part 25 of the "Genesis" Study. In today's lesson, Wayne gave us another perspective of a serpent's attributes before the interaction with Eve.  Adam had named every beast of the field, and by naming them understood their attributes, which usually was reflected in the name Adam gave them.  The curse that God put on the serpent after the fall was that he would crawl on his belly and eat dust.  Well then, before then he must have been able to speak and move around without slithering. Perhaps he was originally rejected by Adam and the serpent thought he...

Genesis - Part 24

The lesson on September 15, 2019 was part 24 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne continued the focus on the Devil and his Angels (Demons) and pursued the question of how they can influence us today in our calling (the Mystery). In this review, Wayne recaps the power that the Devil has in tempting Jesus, and how he has a place reserved in heaven where he accuses the brethren daily (e.g. Job) but in the main focus on today's lesson was to look at what we learned in our Acts 29 study.  We learned that those were possessed with a demon could be helped by the power of prayer and fasting.  Gifts...

Genesis - Part 23
  The lesson on September 8, 2019 was part 23 of the "Genesis" study.  This weeks lesson in Genesis Wayne teaches us that the personage of Satan or the Devil is real.  It is not an analogy of the old nature of man as some teach.  The Devil had huge power as shown in Matthew 4:8-9 when he appeared to Jesus and "showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor" and said in verse 9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me".  You cannot say that Jesus was only dealing with his old nature.  Wayne provided us the context of how the Devil and his Demons...

Practical Lessons and Right Division - Part 6

The lesson on August 19, 2018 was part 6 of "Practical Lessons and Right Division" study.  This study has been looking at different aspects of our practical walk in this age with our specific calling.  It is important that we learn of the distinctives or our calling how we may then walk worthy.  Wayne continues the focus on Ephesians 3:3-21 and the very unique truth that PAul is sharing with us and how God is wanting to reconcile "The All Things" which includes Adamic man on the Earth but also Principalities and Powers in Heavenly Places.  We learn how important the role of Headship plays...

Genesis - Part 16

The lesson on June 16, 2019 was part 16 of the "Genesis" study.  In the lesson, Wayne looks specifically at the Ark of the Covenant and it's role in the temple.  We learn from the Old Testament of the glory of the Temple Solomon built that housed the Ark and the function in played being the gateway to heaven where God would dwell (which we find as the language of the portal).  We looked at scripture that prophesied of the restoration of Israel and the Temple but we learn that they will no longer remember the name of the Ark because it will be replaced by the true temple of God in Christ...
