The lesson on January 21, 2018 was part 7 of "Mid-Acts or Acts 28?" study. This lesson provided a review of what we previously learned regarding the term "same body" and that it is not referring to the body found in Acts mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12 or Romans 12 but that of a newly created body where Jews and Gentiles are the same. In this lesson we learn more of the manifestation of the mystery of Ephesians 3, which was not witnessed from the prophets and old testament scripture but hidden in God. The body you find in Acts is one that was manifested by the prophets and old testament scripture. If you try to start the church in Acts, you have so many problems to deal with because the hope and promises are of ones made to Israel which includes the promised land. Our promises and calling are unsearchable and in the heavens far above all principalities and powers. The scripture reading was from 2 Thessalonians 2:1-8 KJV
"1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. 5 Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time. 7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. 8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:"
