"Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
The lesson on March 5, 2017 was part 9 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". This lesson continued to look a the mysteries in the bible and provided a recap of the mystery of iniquity but eventually got to the mysteries found in Revelation (this has been a mini-series looking where ever the word mystery appears in scripture). Wayne points out on the white board where the word appears in the the books are in relation to the Acts 28 boundary in that they are revealed in the context of Israels calling. Revelation mysteries are in context of the book of Acts because God gave them a legitimate opportunity to repent during Acts and if so, Revelation would have unfolded. Israel did not repent so the Lord revealed through the Apostle PAul, the Mystery in the post-Acts books. Wayne says the Mysteries that are found in the post-Acts books will be studied last. The scripture reading was in 2 Thessalonians 3:6-12 KJV
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 based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
Every month I promise myself that I will just write about good things, try not to be controversial and be positive like the popular preachers are. Something always jars me back to reality and the seriousness of God’s calling. Five years ago doctors diagnosed me with a rapid growing lung cancer and gave me a year to live. God Almighty changed that, gave me additional duties and this year the doctors announced me cancer free. Seven times each week God lets me stand before different classes and tell them about His Son. I get to serve as a jail chaplain and a police/fire chaplain.
