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...

Be Ye Thankful. In the Colossians study, we saw that the Apostle Paul was expressing that we be thankful for everything the God the Father has done for us in His son Christ Jesus. We often take that for granted and forget that we should be thankful. What is being thankful mean? Noah Webster’s 1828 American Dictionary contains the greatest number of Biblical definitions given in any reference volume. Webster considered "education useless without the Bible". Noah Webster believed that the Bible and Christianity played important roles in the lives of a free people and its government.

A Psalms of Thanksgiving. The lesson on November 19, 2006 takes a break from an audio series and gives a topical lesson on Psalms 100 to celebrate Thanksgiving which comes on the third Thursday in November each year. Psalms 100 (KJV) says: 1. Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. 2. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. 3. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 4. Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him...

Strive Not. The aim of the enemy, according to2 Timothy 2:16, is to subvert the hearer and snare the believer. Yet God gives the Christian good instructions on how to deal with it as believers in Christ. The workman that is not ashamed has studied the scripture and practices right division. Paul also encourages Timothy to commit certain “things” to faithful men who shall be able to teach others also. What things? Don’t be ashamed of Paul’s specific ministry called “the mystery”. Further, be strong in the grace that is in Christ and recognize the completeness we have in Him.

The Pattern of Paul. As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we are reminded to be thankful. Yet we see from 2 Timothy 3:1-2, that unthankfulness is one of the attributes of the last days of this dispensation. Do you practice thankfulness? A recent observation made by some missionaries about the American people was that they were a bunch of complainers and unthankful even though there are so many things to be thankful for. If America turns away from it’s Christian heritage and leans towards humanism or materialism, unthankfulness will be a result because the flesh is never satisfied.

June 22nd, 1986

This lesson was given on June 22, 1986 and was part 1 of the "Signs of the Times" study.  This lesson discusses the need for christians to recognize the time of their calling.  We are told to understand the days of our visitation, and most christians today are looking for the rapture and the Lord's return. However, we are told to study the word and discern the signs of the times. The scripture reading was given in 1 Timothy 4:1-6; 13 KJV "1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils...
