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 LRB 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 LRB 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 CR LRB 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 your 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 38:1-3 LRB Then the LORD answered Job from the whirlwind;

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

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

The LORD Challenges Job Again

Job 40:6-7 LRB 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 LRB “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 Blesses 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 LRB But How, can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him 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 LRB 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 LRB Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give 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

Reunion of Israel and Judah

Ezekiel 37:15-28 Again a message came to me from the LORD;

“Son of man, take a piece of wood and carve on it these words; ‘This represents Judah and its allied tribes.’ Then take another piece and carve these words on it; ‘This represents Ephraim and the northern tribes of Israel.’

Now hold them together in your hand as if they were one piece of wood.

When your people ask you

Question in the Bible

what your actions mean,

Answer in the Bible

say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says; I will take Ephraim and the northern tribes and join them to Judah. I will make them one piece of wood in my hand.’

“Then hold out the pieces of wood you have inscribed, so the people can see them.

And give them this message from the Sovereign LORD; I will gather the people of Israel from among the nations. I will bring them home to their own land from the places where they have been scattered.

I will unify them into one nation on the mountains of Israel. One king will rule them all; no longer will they be divided into two nations or into two kingdoms.

They will never again pollute themselves with their idols and vile images and rebellion, for I will save them from their sinful apostasy. I will cleanse them. Then they will truly be my people, and I will be their God.

“My servant David will be their king, and they will have only one shepherd. They will obey my regulations and be careful to keep my decrees.

They will live in the land I gave my servant Jacob, the land where their ancestors lived. They and their children and their grandchildren after them will live there forever, generation after generation. And My servant David will be their prince forever.

And I will make a covenant of peace with them, an everlasting covenant.  I will give them their land and increase their numbers, and I will put my Temple among them forever.

I will make my home among them. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

And when my Temple is among them forever, the nations will know that I am the LORD, who makes Israel holy.”
