Responding to questions
Note that I am the only person typing or copy and pasting these messages at this time. If I spend time doing messages on other sites I will get behind on adding more studies in multiple versions, formats of sharing the gospel, and languages.
If the first version that you try to read is difficult to understand check for another version of the same study on this site that might be easier to read. If you want more information about the study that has a question in the title read the verses around the Question and Answer in the Bible. The same goes for all the formats of sharing the gospel messages on this site.
Isaiah 55:11 CSB so my word that comes from my mouth will not return to me empty, but it will accomplish what I please and will prosper in what I send it to do.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 CSB All Scripture is inspired by God. And is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness,
so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Peter 1:19-21 CSB We also have the prophetic word strongly confirmed, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
Above all, you know this; No prophesy of Scripture comes from the Prophet’s own interpretation,
because no prophesy ever came by the will of man; instead, men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
THE LORD Speaks
Job 38:1-2 CSB Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind. He said:
Who is this who obscures my counsel with ignorant words?
Job 40:6-7 CSB Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind:
Get ready to answer me like a man; When I question you, you will inform me.
Job 42:4-7 CSB You said, “Listen now, and I will speak. When I question you, you will inform me.”
I had heard reports about you, but now my eyes have seen you.
Therefore, I reject my words and am sorry for them; I am dust and ashes.
After the LORD had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz the Temanite: “I am angry with you and your two friends, for you have not spoken the truth about me, as my servant Job has.
Israel’s Rejection of the message
Romans 10:14-17 CSB How, then, can they call on him they have not believed in? And how can they believe without hearing about him? And how can they hear without a preacher?
And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.
But not all obeyed the gospel. For Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed our message?
So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the message about Christ.
Acts 26:17-18 CSB I will rescue you from your people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them
to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a share among those who are sanctified by faith in me.’
Romans 15:4-7 CSB For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures.
Now may the God who gives endurance and encouragement grant you live in harmony with one another: according to Christ Jesus,
so that you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ with one mind and one voice.
Glorifying God Together
Therefore accept one another just as Christ also accepted you, to the glory of God.
Here is Today’s message
Isaiah 41:2-4 Who has stirred up someone from the east? in righteousness he calls him to serve.
Answer in the Bible
The LORD hands nations over to him,
and he subdues kings. He makes them like dust with his sword, like wind-driven stubble with his bow.
Question in the Bible
He pursues them, going on safely,
hardly touching the path with his feet.
Who has performed and done this,
calling the generations from the beginning?
Answer in the Bible
I am the LORD, the first and with the last–I am he.
Isaiah 46:9-10 Remember what happened long ago, for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and no one is like me.
I declare the end from the beginning, and from long ago what is not yet done, saying; my plan will take place, and I will do all my will.
