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...
Independence Day Lessons
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...
The lesson on July 3, 2005 celebrated Independence Day in America. The scripture reading was from Romans 5:7-8 KJV "7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."
Freedom in Christ. July 4th was the celebration of Independence day in America honoring the 225th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence declaring freedom from England. Just as this day was set aside to celebrate America’s national freedoms, the Christian should set aside time to recognize the freedom we have in Christ Jesus. The lesson on 07-08 teaches from Acts 16:6-10. The book of Acts is as much about the Acts of the Holy Spirit as it is the Acts of the Apostles. What are the differences between the activity of the Holy Spirit in Acts compared to today?
Independence Day - The lesson on July 5, 2009 took a break from the Romans study to celebrate Independence Day in America. Psalms 11:1-7 was the scripture reading and most people are familiar with verse 3 “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?” This is a sobering passage from scripture when applied to America this fear is not a new. I’m sure many generations past have shared this concern. So why bring it up? When bad things happen we begin to lose our faith in God.
Derek McCammon gave a special 4th of July message on July 2nd. His lesson celebrated America’s 224th birthday and asks the question “Is America growing closer or farther to God?” Listen to his lesson on 07-02 and hear what the scriptures say.
The lesson on July 6, 2008 celebrated Indepenence Day in America.
The lesson on July 4, 2010 was in celebration of the United States Independence holiday. The scripture reading was in Psalms 33:6-12 KJV "6 By the word of the Lord were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. 7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. 8 Let all the earth fear the Lord: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. 9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
Independence Day. The lesson on July 2, 2006 celebrates Independence Day in America which is the 230th anniversary of this country declaring independence from the British crown. The Declaration has five parts and is summarized with these last words: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.” The 56 men that signed this document did just that. There are not men of this caliber today because people have a different mindset from today’s world.
The lesson today was taught on July 1, 2012. As America and the world trend more and more to the concept that we are not a christian nation, we are reminded of all the sacrifices made by our forefathers. We remember today the great sacrifices made by those brave men and women in the founding of this country. To question if it was founded as a christian nation is foolish. The wonderful documents leave no doubt that America was founded and based on christian principles and undoubtedly influenced by our God Himself.
