This study started on October 21, 2018 and it is taking a focus on the three places in scripture where the Apostle Paul uses this term. This study will provide the context of these passages and help the student of scripture gain confidence about this subject through the right division of scripture.
Practical lessons and Right Division is focusing on the walk we should take when being worthy of the calling Right Division makes clear to us in this post Acts 28 age. In the previous study we looked at the post Acts timeframe and learned how the Apostle PAul revealed the Mystery of Ephesians 3:9. Afterwards, when you read Ephesians 4:1 KJV, PAul is saying "I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,". If we are to walk worthy, we must know what our calling is! Right Division of scripture helps us understand those that are called with each calling. Therefore in this study, Wayne will help us understand how we may walk with the calling that is active today so we may be found worthy and receive the rewards that God has prepared for us.
This study looks at Paul’s latter ministries and journey(s) which would have occurred after the close of Acts and the writing of the last seven books Paul wrote before he was executed by Niro. The goal of this study is to find evidence of Paul's fourth and perhaps a fifth missionary journey and when The Mystery was revealed to him during his journeys. Why this study? We need answers to some important questions: When did the church which is his body begin? This is essentially the same as asking – when was the mystery of Eph 3:9 revealed? How many ministries can we find that are different and concurrent during Acts and after Acts? This will involve John’s gospel and letters – what was the “highways” ministry – when was it to begin? Any other ministries? How does Paul relate to these?What were Paul’s movements Acts 29? This study will endeavor to answer these questions.
In this study, Wayne Stewart will look at the beginning of the church which we are a part of today. The Acts provides the history of Israel and Gentiles in how they had a relationship with Jesus Christ after his death, burial and resurrection. At what point in time did God give specific instructions to the Gentiles apart from Israel? This study will look at this question and help you understand the significance of finding out the answer.
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
This study looks at the book of Revelation from the perspective of Man, His Nature and Destiny which means the lessons will look at the judgments revealed in revelation as it pertains to man. Whether or not the perspective of eternal torment for the lost is accurate as opposed to just perishing with the appropriate amount of punishment. This study is best followed by the Man, His Nature and Destiny to provide the context of how by looking at Revelation we may expand our understanding of Man's destiny.
