"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 book of revelation must be read from a "shortly come to pass" perspective -- Rev 1:1, 3. The book touches on many interesting topics not only matters to do with events leading up to and including the day of the Lord but also beyond the New Heavens and earth into the day of the age.
The lesson on May 1, 2016 was part 19 of "The Apocalypse" study. A review was given of the previous lesson and Wayne spent more time looking at the lessons we get from Christ's appearing, particularly in 2 Timothy 1:10 KJV where it says "But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel". This lesson looked deeply at the first and second appearing of Christ, as well as death being destroyed as the enemy and bringing life and immortality. The remainder of the lesson was reviewing chapter 10 where we learn that there is no more time for repentance because the 7th angel brings judgement. We also learn what it means when it says the mystery of God should be finished where Wayne teaches us about the mysteries in scripture comparing it to The Mystery that was revealed to the Apostle PAul as the prisoner of Christ Jesus after Acts 28. The scripture reading was in Revelation 10:1-7 KJV
This study is presented by Dr. Wayne Stewart and it is intended to help the Christian understand the basics of the principles of rightly dividing the word of truth which is mentioned in 2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." This is a fundamental skill if you as a Christian are going to handle the word of God accurately. All scripture is written for our learning providing us doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. It is very important to understand what is written to you as opposed to someone else so you may understand why some things promised in the Bible do not seem to work today. This study will help you determine how to understand what is promised to you so you may have peace in your Christian walk.
That was the week that was: On the Road to Emmaus
So Christ has died and Christ has risen, and He appears to two downcast disciples returning home. He asks them about what they were talking about. What did they say? And what did He reply. Yes! That what the week that was. Starting with Palm Sunday, follow the events of the following week, and then look back with the two on the Emmaus Road… This Easter message puts us on the Road to Emmaus with them. Well worth watching.
