The lesson on July 5, 2015 was part 34 of the “First Corinthians” study.  This lesson opened up with chapter 14 where Paul was providing instructions on how to use the gifts they were given during the Acts period.  Wayne begins by explaining the parallels of the foundation of America and the revelation of the mystery in Ephesians 3.  In America there were Loyalist and Patriots.  The Loyalist were remaining loyal to the King of England, and in parallel, there are Christians who are loyal to the nation of Israel, remaining loyal to the promises and blessings promised to that nation.  The Patriots were committed to breaking free from the crown of England, and likewise, the Christians who have accepted the truth revealed by the Apostle PAul after Acts 28, are committed to breaking free from the nation of Israel and clinging to the calling of the Gentiles, being provided a new calling in the body of Christ where He is the head.  This was in celebration of Independence Day here in America. The scripture reading was in 1 Corinthians 14:1-5 KJV

“1 Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy. 2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries. 3 But he that prophesieth speaketh unto men to edification, and exhortation, and comfort. 4 He that speaketh in an unknown tongue edifieth himself; but he that prophesieth edifieth the church. 5 I would that ye all spake with tongues, but rather that ye prophesied: for greater is he that prophesieth than he that speaketh with tongues, except he interpret, that the church may receive edifying.”
