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
1 Corinthians 15:57 But thanks bento God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
Romans 7:13-25 Therefore, did what is good become death to me? Absolutely not! On the contrary, sin, in order to be recognized as sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that through the commandment, sin might become sinful beyond measure.
The Problem of Sin in Us
For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold as a slave to sin.
For I do not understand what I am doing, because I do not practice what I want to do, but I do what I hate.
Now if I do what I do not want to do, I agree with the law that it is good.
So now I am no longer the one doing it, but it is sin living in me.
For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh. For the desire to do what is good is with me, but there is no ability to do it.
For I do not do the good that I want to do, but I practice the evil that I do not want to do.
Now if I do what I do not want, I am no longer the one that does it, but it is the sin that lives in me.
So I discover this law; When I want to do what is good, evil is present with me.
For in my inner self I delight in God’s law,
but I see a different law in the parts of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body.
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death?
Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I myself am serving the law of God, but with my flesh, the law of sin.
1 John 5:1-5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of him.
This is how we know that we love God’s children; when we love God and obey his commands.
For this is what love for God is; to keep his commands. And his commands are not a burden,
because everyone who has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world; our faith.
The Certainty of God’s Testimony
Who is the one who conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
