The lesson on November 17, 2019 was part 33 of the "Genesis" study. The culmination of this lesson introduces the "Pleromoa" but before we got there Wayne reviewed what we had previously learned about how important Right Division of scripture is when studying because you will be in danger of receiving doctrine out of context. We had previously looked at the lineage of Cain and Seth and found their posterity with people sharing the same name. They are separate people. We looked at the word "Church" and identified at least three churches mentioned in scripture that all had different attributes. To really make this clear, we looked at 1 Corinthians 12:28 (which was during the Acts period) and the gifts that were given to it and compared it to the church which is His body and Christ being the head and the gifts that were given to this body (in Ephesians 4:11-12 KJV). With Right Division we learn what is different and which one applies to us today in our calling. In this body, we learn of the fullness or "pleroma" that the Mystery brings with it. That will be next weeks lesson focus. The scripture reading was from Colossians 1:14-19 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.
