The lesson on February 9, 2020 was part 42 of the "Genesis" study. In this Genesis study, we are learning about the days of Noah in relation to the New Testament statement describing of the coming of Christ will be like the days of Noah. Well Wayne takes the time to explain why that would have been true with the condition of the repentance of the Israel. Wayne took time to show how Peter acknowledges the wisdom that was given to Paul for the uncircumcision. Peter was the minister to the Jew and Paul to the Gentiles. Paul would take Peter to task if he tried to say the Gentiles had to be circumcised to be saved. Yet Paul through the book of Acts would go to the Jew first, then to the Gentile. It wasn't until after the book of Acts that Paul was given a secret that was hidden in God before the foundation of the world called "The Mystery" as revealed for the first time in Ephesians. The scripture reading was in 2 Peter 3:11-18 KJV
"11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. 15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. 18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."
