Fathers House

The message on December 16, 2018 was entitled "In My Father's House" and it was a one off message by Wayne Stewart before he and his family take a Christmas break in New Zeland for the next two weeks.  In this message, we look at the passage in John at the end of chapter 13 when Simon Peter promises to lay his life down for Jesus... and the Lord warning him in verse 38 "...Verily, verily, I say unto thee, The cock shall not crow, till thou hast denied me thrice."  This gives the context for chapter 14 and the famous verse that most Christians memorize in John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I...

Genesis - Part 33

The lesson on November 17, 2019 was part 33 of the "Genesis" study.  The culmination of this lesson introduces the "Pleromoa" but before we got there Wayne reviewed what we had previously learned about how important Right Division of scripture is when studying because you will be in danger of receiving doctrine out of context.  We had previously looked at the lineage of Cain and Seth and found their posterity with people sharing the same name.  They are separate people.  We looked at the word "Church" and identified at least three churches mentioned in scripture that all had different...

Genesis - Part 32

The lesson on November 10, 2019 was part 32 of the "Genesis" study.  This week Wayne took us through chapter 4 and 5 which gave us the posterity of Cain and Seth and showed that their were some descendants who had similar names and in some cases the same name like Enoch and Lamech.  The reason why God inspired Moses to provide this detail shows that the line of Cain and Seth are similar but not the same.  We see the longevity of Adamic man after the expulsion from Eden which decays over time.  God wanted us to learn of the doctrinal differences of these two lines.  Wayne challenged us to...

Genesis - Part 31

The lesson on November 3, 2019 was part 31 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne took us back today to reemphasize why Right Division is so important when we are studying scripture.  In Genesis, the doctrine we learn of being a "keeper" is reflected in the sin that Cain had before he murdered Abel.  Can was a tiller of the ground which meant he had the responsibility to be his brothers keeper which is what he responded to God with after he had killed Abel and received the curse that God put on him.  We too as Christians have the responsibility of reading scripture and understanding doctrine that...

Genesis - Part 30

The lesson on October 27, 2019 was part 30 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne opened up with a comment that a lot of what we have covered in the Genesis study is that of beginnings. Much of what we learn in Genesis relates to events during the Acts period and Acts 28.  Further, right division of scripture is so important that Christians need to rightly divide the ministries of the Apostle Paul. Then while diving into Genesis, we learned more of the double curse the ground that God had put on the Earth.  Next, we lean of the Hebrew word behind "keeper" which was "shamar".  Wayne points out all...

Genesis - Part 29

The lesson on October 20, 2019 was part 29 of the "Genesis" study.  This week Wayne looked at the descendants of Cain and hightlighted that they weren't knuckle draggers.  In fact, Cain's line were talented tillers and the Hebrew word inferred them being "Smiths" e.g. blacksmith, etc.  Often you find those who are opposed to God being themselves talented and making things of value.  Why?  Well, each one of us are created in the image of God and are given talents from God even though they won't acknowledge it.  When Cain was asked by God where was his brother Abel, he responded...

Genesis - Part 28

The lesson on October 13, 2019 was part 28 of the "Genesis" study.    This weeks lesson explored further the attributes of the Devil in how he uses scripture against the believer.  What ever form his took before the fall, we learned in Genesis 2:20 "And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him."  Adam had rejected him at that time so being subtle had worked his way back into the Garden to ask Eve... In Genesis 3:1 we see "Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which...

Genesis - Part 27

The lesson on October 6, 2019 was part 27 of the "Genesis" study and Wayne opened with a review of the context of the question, "Why are their gifts apparent after Acts 28 when the Mystery had been given"?  This is thoroughly explained in the Acts 29 study but the first 20 minutes of today's lesson revisited the impact of the believers who had been given gifts prior to Acts 28 that flowed into the new calling and needed to be built up, that is why PAul wrote in Ephesians 4:12 "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:".  Post...

Genesis - Part 26

The lesson on September 29, 2019 was part 26 of the "Genesis" study.  Wayne reviewed the doctrine that was established in Genesis 3 when Adam fell and with Eve, they had made themselves fig leave clothing because they knew they were naked.  God didn't accept their clothing because he gave them some skins from a slain animal.  He established that forgiveness required the shedding of blood of an innocent animal.  This doctrine was in place before the birth of Cain and Abel in chapter four of Genesis where we learn from the brothers display of obedience and rebellion.  Although Cain was a...

Genesis - Part 25

The lesson on September 22, 2019 was part 25 of the "Genesis" Study. In today's lesson, Wayne gave us another perspective of a serpent's attributes before the interaction with Eve.  Adam had named every beast of the field, and by naming them understood their attributes, which usually was reflected in the name Adam gave them.  The curse that God put on the serpent after the fall was that he would crawl on his belly and eat dust.  Well then, before then he must have been able to speak and move around without slithering. Perhaps he was originally rejected by Adam and the serpent thought he...
