The lesson on June 30, 2019 was part 18 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne announced that we will be traveling the next three weeks for his summer break from his teaching responsibilities at University and left us with a lesson focused on the eternal life we have in resurrection. Eternal life was given at the tree of Life in the Garden of Eden and the opposite of eternal life is perish. We learned about how there is a voice in Greek and that is has three tenses. An aorist tense which is a secondary tense, and accordingly, in the indicative mood it indicates passive action, there is active or future tense and middle. Active is reflected in this statement "I hit the ball". Passive tense is reflected in this statement "I was hit by the ball". The middle tense is where the subject may or may not be affected by the action. There are two specific times when you know the middle tense is used and those are "Aorist and Future". We looked at the term "ἀπόλλυμι" and where it is used in the aorist and future tense which was about 26 places. One of those places was in John 3:15-16 that describes perish, being the opposite of eternal life. With the free will of man, God has offered mankind a way to have eternal life through Christ Jesus his Son otherwise, they will perish (which is another description of hell.. meaning perish. Hell is not a place where God punishes people for all time, instead they just are judged and then perish. This is an important distinction to those who believe in Calvinism. The scripture reading was from Numbers 21:7-11 KJV
This study will look at the book of Genesis in relation to our calling today. There are so many important issues regarding doctrine in the Bible and in relation to Right Division. In the first chapter we find it starts with creation and in the last chapter records when Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. So much happened inbetween and this study will look at all of it. Since there at 50 chapters in Genesis, much thought will have to be given to this study if it covers a chapter a week. In the end, this study will
This study started on October 21, 2018 and it is taking a focus on the three places in scripture where the Apostle Paul uses this term. This study will provide the context of these passages and help the student of scripture gain confidence about this subject through the right division of scripture.
Practical lessons and Right Division is focusing on the walk we should take when being worthy of the calling Right Division makes clear to us in this post Acts 28 age. In the previous study we looked at the post Acts timeframe and learned how the Apostle PAul revealed the Mystery of Ephesians 3:9. Afterwards, when you read Ephesians 4:1 KJV, PAul is saying "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,".
This study looks at Paul’s latter ministries and journey(s) which would have occurred after the close of Acts and the writing of the last seven books Paul wrote before he was executed by Niro. The goal of this study is to find evidence of Paul's fourth and perhaps a fifth missionary journey and when The Mystery was revealed to him during his journeys. Why this study? We need answers to some important questions: When did the church which is his body begin? This is essentially the same as asking – when was the mystery of Eph 3:9 revealed?
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
