The lesson on April 18, 2021 was part 12 of the "Acts - When and Why?" study. Wayne focused on clarifying on the phrase "Kingdom of God" and why you cannot take what was said in the eighth time this phrase in Colossians 4:11 to what was used by Paul into the previous seven times that were referenced in the Acts period epistles.

PAul was reminding Timothy to stir up the gifts that he was given when adjusting the believers who needed to be perfected in adjusting to a new hope that was revealed in the Mystery. When PAul wrote Ephesians 4:11-13 KJV he was explaining why the gifts that were given after Acts 28 included "...some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" There are no apostles and prophets around today. What we have left in this calling is evangelists, pastors and teachers. The Apostles and Prophets had gifts from the Acts period that could be stirred up. That is not the case now because it passed away with that generation. The scripture reading was from Romans 3:29-31
