Independence Day
 

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord:..."

Psalms 33:12a KJV

Independence Day, commonly known as the Fourth of July, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, declaring independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain (now officially known as the United Kingdom). Independence Day is commonly associated with fireworks, parades, barbecues, carnivals, fairs, picnics, concerts, baseball games, family reunions, and political speeches and ceremonies, in addition to various other public and private events celebrating the history, government, and traditions of the United States. Independence Day is a great way to explain the providence of God as He moved the word of God westward into America.  Celebrate Independence day at RightDivision.com by recognizing your dependence on Christ Jesus who gives you freedom from the penalty of sin.

Acts 29 - Part 13

The lesson on July 1, 2018 was part 13 of the "Acts 29" study.  In this lesson, Wayne raps up with the first half of the study since he is working on building his Hebrew knowledge and tools to learn what he needs to finish the study.  We look at revised Acts 28:28 schema again to emphasize what has been revised, the chief being that The Mystery of Ephesians 3:9 was not revealed during Acts 28.  We have learned that there is a progression of the ministries Paul was a part of and that the hope of salvation being sent to the Gentiles is just a continuation of what had been revealed in Matthew 22.  Further, the hiways ministry is still going on today because it is the foundation of what God wants which is the message of salvation and forgiveness of sins to gain resurrection and eternal life.  The key is to know what calling you will be raised to in the Kingdom of God.  Those who accept the unsearchable riches of Christ calling have a hope that is different than that of the hiways calling.  The scripture reading was in Matthew 24:1-2 KJV

The U, V and W of Right Division - Part 22

The lesson on July 2, 2017 was part 22 of "The U, V and W of Right Division".  Wayne reviewed last weeks lesson and emphasized the analogy used of the separation of the United States from England, using the divorce of the American's from the legal connection to Great Britain to that of the divorce of the Jews from the calling of God after Acts 28 with the revelation of The Mystery in Ephesians.  We learned why America choose July 4th as the day to celebrate Independence.  July 4, 1776 wasn't the day that the Continental Congress decided to declare independence (they did that on July 2, 1776). ´It wasn’t the day we started the American Revolution either (that had happened back in April 1775). And it wasn't the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the first draft of the Declaration of Independence (that was in June 1776). Or the date on which the Declaration was delivered to Great Britain (that didn't happen until November 1776). Or the date it was signed (that was August 2, 1776).  It was the date that the Continental Congress approved the wording on July 4th!  We can celebrate the words that God gave us with the completed word of God.  Then we looked at the definition of Covenant Theology and laid the foundation to study the 7 covenants found in scripture. The scripture reading was from Acts 2:37-40 KJV

The Apocalypse - Part 27

The lesson on July 3, 2016 was part 27 of "The Apocalypse" study.  This also was mingled with thoughts on America's Independence Day celebration.  Wayne gave a brief overview of the previous lesson where we learned about Sion or Zion being the center of Israel's salvation in the Tribulation but he moved on to teach us about the different gospels in scripture.  The term "gospel" simply means good news but the mention of gospel in scripture dictates that you look at the context to see which good news is being proclaimed.  We looked at three different gospels to make it apparent that those who teach that there is only one gospel is in error.  The gospel of the Kingdom is different than the gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Jesus... even the gospel of the unsearchable riches of Christ.  The scripture reading was in Revelation 14:9-14 KJV

Independence Day - Part 2

The lesson on July 20, 2014 was part 2 of the Independence Day message and it continued to show the parallels between the political independence the colonies declared from Great Britain to the spiritual independence Gentiles received from Israel at the end of Acts 28.  The lesson covers the reasons why God declares this separation from Israel and creates something new.  The new man identified in Ephesians 2:15 where Christ is the head is the new body created from this independence.  The scripture reading was from Acts 28:23-28 KJV

Independence Day 2014

The lesson on July 6, 2014 was a message on Independence Day and it looked at a parallel as to what the founding fathers of America in pursing independence from Great Brittan to what the Gentiles received at the end of Acts, independence from Israel when the message of salvation was authorized to be sent through the Gentiles after Acts 28:28.  The message looked at the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence: "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation."  The scripture reading was in Genesis 9:6-12 KJV

Does America have a hidden oligarchy? Is U.S. foreign policy run by a closed shop? What is the Council on Foreign Relations? It began in 1921 as a front organization for J.P. Morgan and Company. By World War II it had acquired unrivaled influence on American foreign policy. Hundreds of U.S. government administrators and diplomats have been drawn from its ranks - regardless of which party has occupied the White House. But what does the Council on Foreign Relations stand for? Why do the major media avoid discussing it?

Declaration of Independence - Drafted by Thomas Jefferson between June 11 and June 28, 1776, the Declaration of Independence is at once the nation's most cherished symbol of liberty and Jefferson's most enduring monument. Here, in exalted and unforgettable phrases, Jefferson expressed the convictions in the minds and hearts of the American people. The political philosophy of the Declaration was not new; its ideals of individual liberty had already been expressed by John Locke and the Continental philosophers.
