"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 April 23, 2017 was part 13 of the "U, V and W of Right Division". Wayne took some time to share with us a 2nd Amendment perspective on suppressing terrorism in churches. This stems from what he learned about from the testimony of Charl van Wyk who was just an ordinary Christian man until July 25, 1993 - the day that would become known for the St. James Massacre. It was on this date that Van Wyk shot back at the terrorists who were attacking an innocent congregation gathered in worship, and saved many lives in the process. The continuation of the series in Part 13 looks at the word Mystery that appears in Ephesians six times. There is a pattern that occurs and Wayne takes us through these six passages and teaches what significance these mean to us today. It is a very important book the PAul the Prisoner reveals The Mystery in Ephesians 3:9 and it is the first book written after the Acts 28:28 judgement on the nation of Israel. The scripture reading was from Ephesians 3:1-10 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.
