The lesson on February 16, 2020 was part 43 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne continued to focus on studying the days of Noe in relation to the coming of Jesus Christ as described in Matthew 24:37 "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.". This week we identify the separate hopes of the callings before and after when The Mystery was given. Prior to the revelation given to Paul, the hope was on the coming of Jesus Christ. Afterwards when the Mystery had been given, it changed to His appearing. We walk through the scriptures that highlight the difference. The scripture reading was from Philippians 3:8-14 KJV
"8 Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ, 9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith: 10 That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; 11 If by any means I might attain unto the resurrection of the dead. 12 Not as though I had already attained, either were already perfect: but I follow after, if that I may apprehend that for which also I am apprehended of Christ Jesus. 13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, 14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."
