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 NLT It is the same with my word. I send it out, and it always produces fruit. It will accomplish all I want it to, and it will prosper everywhere I send it.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 NLT All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize  what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.

God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.

2 Peter 1:19-21 NLT Because of that experience we have even greater confidence in the message proclaimed by      the Prophets. You must pay close attention to what they wrote, for their words are like a lamp shining in a dark          place–until the Day dawns, and Christ the Morning Star shines in our hearts.

Above all, you must realize that no prophesy in Scripture ever came from the Prophet’s own understanding,

or from human initiative, No, those prophets were moved by the Holy Spirit, and they spoke from God.

How to hear and understand the Gospel 

The LORD Challenges Job

Job 38:1-2 NLT Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind:

“Who is this that questions my wisdom with such ignorant words?

The LORD Challenges Job Again

Job 40:6-7 NLT Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind:

“Brace yourself like a man, because I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.

Job 42:4-7 NLT You said, ‘Listen and I will speak! I have some questions for you, and you must answer them.’

I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.

I take back everything I said, and I sit in dust and ashes to show my repentance.”

Conclusion: The LORD Blessed Job

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 accurately about me, as my servant Job has.

Romans 10:14-17 NLT But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe if they have not heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?

And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”

But not everyone welcomes the Good News, for Isaiah the prophet said, “LORD, who has believed our message?”

So faith comes from hearing, that is, hearing the Good News about Christ.

Acts 26:17-18 NLT And I will rescue you from both your own people and the Gentiles. Yes, I am sending you to the  Gentiles

to open their eyes, so they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God. Then they will receive forgiveness for their sins and be given a place among God’s people, who are set apart by faith in me.’

Romans 15:4-7 NLT Such things where written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures gives us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.

May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus.

Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.

Here is Today’s message

Psalms 6:8-9 Go away, all you who do evil, for the LORD has heard my weeping.

The LORD has heard my plea; the LORD will answer my prayer.

Ecclesiastes 7:11-14 Wisdom is even better when you have money. Both are a benefit as you go through life.

Wisdom and money can get you almost anything, but only wisdom can save your life.

Accept the way God does things, for who can straighten what he has made crooked?

Enjoy prosperity while you can, but when hard times strike, realize that both come from God. Remember that nothing is certain in this life.

Faith and Endurance

James 1:2-5 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.

For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.

So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
