The lesson on April 14, 2019 was part 11 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne summarized the focus on Free Will and God's sovereignty in how He does not cause sin or evil acts but once men choose to do evil, as God He then can further harden their heart until they perform an evil act but God can use it for good. For example we see "eyes have they closed" which was ordained by man! As the evil act gets closer, "eyes are further closed by God". Then when the evil act happens it is ordained by God for use to His purpose. We looked at Romans 5:12 and studied the phrase "for all have sinned" and looked at two issues. Are we guilty of Adam's sin (in one man) or are we guilty only of our own personal sin (because of one man)? We looked at Deuteronomy 24:16 which indicated the latter. We are not held responsible for Adam's sin but we do suffer from it. The calvinist prefer the that we are guilty of Adam's sin. Wayne was using the fact that we are guilty only of our own personal sin could possibly solve the issue of the death of a baby or child. God who is righteous will resurrect the aborted child, baby or adolescent child who die before they commit their own sin. The scripture reading was from Romans 5:12-16 KJV
Here is a new audio series on The Inspiration of Scriptures. It begins with an overview of the Reformation and then transitions into the inspired Word of God. As it says in 2 Timothy 3:14-17 KJV "14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
Here is a new audio series on the Coming of Elijah. Malachi 4:1-6 KJV says "1 For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. 2 But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall. 3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the Lord of hosts. 4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."
The Apostle Paul said it well in Romans 7:18-25 (KJV) “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Here is a series of lessons based on the book “All Truth” written by J. Eustice Mills. It studies how scripture and truth in scripture is revealed progressively It’s very important to understand how scripture is divided and truth is revealed. Christians often think of this as the King James divisions between the Old Testament and the New Testament. However, God has different divisions in scripture based on time (chronologically) and calling (a targeted message or body of truth e.g. direct mail). This series takes you on a journey to learn what scripture has identified as All Truth.
The Trinity Study Series. The Christian doctrine of the Trinity teaches the unity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as three persons in one Godhead. The doctrine states that God is the Triune God, existing as three persons, or in the Greek hypostases, but one being. Each of the persons is understood as having the one identical essence or nature, not merely similar natures.
