The lesson on March 17, 2019 was part 7 of the "Genesis" study. In today's lesson, Wayne looked at the unique words used only in Genesis which is "and God said" and we looked at a concordance of this in Hebrew. We learned that in the days of re-creation we see how God brackets the days by saying "and the evening and the morning were the xx day". Right after this statement, the next verse starts with "And God said..." which indicates God's re-creative work starting at the beginning of the next day. When you apply this grammatical logic, it clearly shows that in Genesis 1:1-2 were his Ex-Nihilo creation acts - something out of nothing - and then renewal process starts with "And God said. Wayne then moved on to repeat what we have learned about death before Adam sinned which necessitates the need for the tree of life. The tree of life was so powerful it would have made the sinner Adam live forever and that is why God put a Cherubim with a flaming sword to keep the sinners out of the garden and the tree of life. We then learned of a consistent principle found in scripture where God says "You may eat of all …. But “prohibition”. See Deuteronomy 14. Having looked at Genesis again with the clarity that the Hebrew provides us really has opened up the scriptures to provide more clarity that happens to match what science claims about the Earth's origins. Not that we are trying to substantiate creation from science since we only need the scriptures to believe that God tells us but it is nice that it matches what science says. In fact, Wayne provided us a URL to Gospel Coalition article entitled "William Lane Craig: Five Arguments for God" This article lays out a modern argument for the belief in God that is used to win debate after debate with Atheists. The scripture reading was from Genesis 1:29-31 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.
