Memorial Day

United States holiday for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country's armed forces

Romans 5:7-8 KJV "7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Thank God for those who died for our freedom.

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the men and women who died while serving in the country's armed forces. The holiday, which is celebrated every year on the final Monday of May, was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service. It typically marks the start of the summer vacation season, while Labor Day marks its end.

Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service. Many volunteers place an American flag on each grave in national cemeteries.

Annual Decoration Days for particular cemeteries are held on a Sunday in late spring or early summer in some rural areas of the American South, notably in the mountains. In cases involving a family graveyard where remote ancestors as well as those who were deceased more recently are buried, this may take on the character of an extended family reunion to which some people travel hundreds of miles. People gather on the designated day and put flowers on graves and renew contacts with kinfolk and others. There often is a religious service and a "dinner on the ground," the traditional term for a potluck meal in which people used to spread the dishes out on sheets or tablecloths on the grass. It is believed that this practice began before the American Civil War and thus may reflect the real origin of the "memorial day" idea.

Genesis - Part 14
The lesson on May 26, 2019 was part 14 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne opened up the lesson honoring Memorial Day in America.  He researched the number of casualties by war and found that the Civil War had so many casualties that you can add all the dead from every other war up until the Vietnam war to exceeded those that were killed in America's Civil War.  He emphasized that Americans should definitely exercise their right to vote because of the cost of American lives has been given to secure your right to vote.  Wayne liked the movie "Saving Private Ryan" which does a good job showing the cost to families when their children have been sent to fight a war to secure our rights.  Wayne then proceeds to provide a recap of his previous lessons on the Temple and continued to major on the Temple and how we are associated with the Temple within the Mystery.  Especially how it connects us back to Eden and the tree of life.  Wayne took time to take us through Ezra and Nehemiah which provided more detail around the Temple.  The scripture reading was from Ezra 1:1-4 KJV

Memorial Day 2016

The message on May 29, 2016 was on the Memorial Day celebration in the United States of America.  Memorial Day weekend is the traditional beginning of summer that runs through Labor Day weekend.  Memorial Day is more than just the celebration of summer.  In fact, it was founded to honor those that have served their country, especially those who have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms.  Scripture says a lot about Sacrifice.  In this message Waynes shows us the scriptures that have sacrifice in them to learn what it means.  We learn from Romans 5:7-8 KJV "7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. 8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."  Romans also tells us in chapter 12, verse 1 "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."  We learn how to determine through Right Division, what is out reasonable service.  The scripture reading was from Hebrews 13:1-13 KJV

Ephesians - Part 28

The lesson on May 25, 2014 was part 28 of the "Ephesians" study and celebrated Memorial Day in the America by studying the whole armor of God.  The lesson started with a review of Ephesians in how it was written by the Apostle PAul as a prisoner of Jesus Christ post Acts 28 when he was now authorized to preach to the Gentiles first. PAul wrote 6 chapters in Ephesians and it is perfectly balanced where the first three chapters are doctrinal truth for our age today and the last three chapters are the practical section showing us how to walk today.  This lesson then covered the whole armor of God that we are supposed to put on today.  This is in contrast to the armor of God that the christians put on the the gospel or Acts period.  Wayne showed us the armor the apostles were to put on during the gospels by taking us through verses in Luke.  The comparison showed that if you attempt to put on armor intended for another group in another age, disaster is sure to be the result.  The warning comes to us about the wiles of the devil and he is the one that is energizing this confusion in Christianity today, causing the church to be divided.  That is why Christians today have become wimps on issues where they should be united to stand.  The scripture reading was in Ephesians 6:10-18 KJV

Ephesians - Part 28
May 26th, 2013

The lesson on May 26, 2013 continued the "Galatians" study with part 6 but first paid homage to those that died in the Moore, Oklahoma May 20, 2013 tornado.  It also was Memorial Day weekend so mention was given to honor those who have died for the United States of America. In chapter two, we learn by understanding why Paul is addressing Peter in regards to salvation by grace.  Paul is admonishing Peter that his walk be consitent with his witness to the Jew and not impose that on the Gentile. The Jews and Gentiles are saved by grace but the Jews were given the covenants and were asked to walk according to the law. The Gentile was now justified by grace, not the law. As a matter of fact, Paul is saying the Jew also, because works through the law won't get you saved.  The scripture reading was from Galatians 2:15-20 KJV
