John's Gospel - Part 3

The lesson on July 5, 2020 was part 3 of the "John's Gospel" study.  Today's lesson covered the third chapter of the book "Life Through His Name" by Charles Welch.  Wayne spent a few minutes reviewing the motivation behind this study then continued the lesson looking the "Welsherian" view of Acts 28 and his perspective on the three sendings of Matthew 22.  Charles Welch takes a hard position on the Acts 28 transition to Israel being LoAmmi (as opposed to what Wayne has established with his Acts 29 study and perspective).  Wayne then focused on answering these questions: Why so many...

Genesis - Part 49

The lesson on March 29, 2020 was part 49 of the "Genesis" study.  Before we continued on the Genesis study, the first 15 minutes covered the latest Right Division Snippet which was entitled "Mid – Acts: “The Mystery Was Made Known in Acts” – Proof?"  This snippet presents evidence that the mysteries that we revealed in Acts is not The Mystery that was revealed post-Acts in Ephesians and Colossians.  Wayne took time to review some of the mysteries that were revealed in that it was the wisdom of Christ which was hidden in Old Testament scriptures that needed an inspired Apostle to bring them...

Genesis - Part 46

The lesson on March 8, 2020 was part 46 of the "Genesis" study. This week Wayne looked at what Peter said about the days of Noah in 1 Peter 3:20-21 KJV "20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. 21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:".  In this passage Peter describes that there were eight...

First Corinthians - Part 31

The lesson on June 14, 2015 was part 31 of the "First Corinthians" study.  Traditions and customs practiced in the Corinthian assembly were unique to the Acts period.  We reviewed why traditions that are taken in that context and tried to be applied today puts the believer in a spiritual prison.  You must rightly divided using Acts 28 as the metaphorical Jordan river when crossing into this age.  One of the most important differences to recognize is the body in Corinthians is not the same body in Ephesians where Christ is the head.  The scripture reading was in 1 Corinthians 12:27-31 KJV...

First Corinthians - Part 30

The lesson on May 31, 2015 was part 30 of the "First Corinthians" study.  This lesson continues in chapter twelve and continues to use the analogy of a spiritual prison if you try to follow what Paul is teaching in Corinthians, seeing that it is an Acts book promoting Acts period traditions and commandments that don't translate to the post-Acts period.  When you look at Paul's ministries, you have to rightly divide Paul and PAul.  The latter being the reference to Paul's prison ministry which occurred after Acts 28:28.  PAul was given a secret to be revealed that was hid in God, before the...

First Corinthians - Part 24

The lesson on April 12, 2015 was part 24 of the "First Corinthians" study.  Continuing on in chapter ten, this lesson looks at popular passage regarding tempatation and the way the Lord gives you to overcome it. Prior to this emphasis, a review was provided over the different baptisms found in scripture and which on applies to us in the post-Acts period.  The scripture reading was from 1 Corinthians 10:12-14 KJV

First Corinthians - Part 23

The lesson on March 29, 2015 was part 23 of the "First Corinthians" study.  Chapter ten opens up with Paul addressing the Jewish members of the Corinthian church using their history to emphasize his appeal for their understanding. We learn more about the kind of baptisms in scripture, particularly in the context of comparing our one baptism described in the post Acts books to that of the baptisms in the Old and New Testament, especially during the Acts period (and First Corinthians is an Acts Period Epistle).  The economy of the Acts period was coming to a head in that the time was short...

First Corinthians - Part 9

The lesson on November 23, 2014 was part 9 of the "First Corinthians" study.  Chapter three opens up with Paul explaining how he cannot teach the meaty things of scripture (spiritual meat) because they are babes in Christ living on milk.  There was some divisions discussed and Paul was emphasizing they should not focus on creating divisions but be spiritual instead of carnal.  This was causing envying, stife and divisions.  The Greek word that gives us envying is the same word that is used for zealousy.  Zealousy can be good or bad.  Zeal has to be with knowledge.  The lesson showed how a...

First Corinthians - Part 4

The lesson on October 12, 2014 was part 4 of the "First Corinthians" study.  This lesson looked at baptism comparing the many baptisms found in the old testament and new testament, particularly that of water baptism, compared to the one baptism taught by the Apostle PAul in Ephesians 4:4-6 KJV "4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.  Something changed at the end of Acts and we learn that PAul was given a secret to reveal to the...
