"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 22, 2016 was part 22 of "The Apocalypse" study. An excellent overview of the context of Revelation was given in the first part of this lesson before Wayne moved on to chapter twelve and the looking into the stronghold of Satan and how he will be angry and try to destroy the preserved Israel but to no prevail. This lesson looked at what PAul teaches us about the wickedness in high places that will be cast down to the Earth heading towards their destruction. The scripture reading was in Revelation 12:12-17 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.
