This is an Acts 28 Site
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. We then look at the context of the seven times Paul used it in Acts to get the context of what it was encompassing in the Old Testament scriptures. Wayne also majored on the transition of a body of Christ prior to Acts 28 and then after the Mystery was revealed to PAul the prisoner. 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
This study started on January 10, 2021 and looks at the book of Acts from a perspective of the Apostle Paul's epistles. It will establish when the Pauline book was written during the Acts timeline and answer why it was written in relation to the context of the Acts. This study will provide a roadmap to properly understanding the doctrine of the Acts period and how the transition to the Gentiles is observed but always in the relation to Israel and the Kingdom of God.
The writings of the author CH Welch have been and continue to be a tremendous influence on those who look for dispensational truth. One of his great and influential contributions is the doctrine concerning the "dispensational boundary of Acts 28". Over the years I have also relished the consequences of this doctrine because it brings light and explanative power to the teaching of God's word rightly divided. Let me be clear -- this doctrine basically says that Acts 28:23-31 is a dispensational landmark containing a boundary. On one side is the hope of Israel and on the other, the revelation of the mystery and the commencement of a new age with Israel divorced and lo-ammi.
