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 so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,

so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.

2 Peter 1:19-21 So we have the prophetic message more fully confirmed. You will do well to be attentive to this as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

First of all you must understand this, that no prophesy of scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation,

because no prophesy ever came by human will, but men and women moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

How to hear and understand the Gospel 

Job 38:1-3 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind;

“Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge?

Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me.

Job 40:6-7 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind;

“Gird up your loins like a man; I will question you, and you declare to me,

Job 42:4-7 ‘Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.’

I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you;

therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

After the LORD had spoken these words to Job, the LORD said to Eliphaz the Temanite; “My wrath is kindled against you and against your two friends; for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job has.

Romans 10:14-17 But how are they to call on me in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in one of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone to proclaim him?

And how are they to proclaim him unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news! ”

But not all have obeyed the good news; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”

So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the word of Christ.

Acts 26:17-18 I will rescue you from your people and from the Gentiles–to whom I am sending you

to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.”

Romans 15:4-7 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, so that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scripture we might have hope.

May the God of steadfastness and encouragement grant you to live in harmony with one another, in accordance with Christ Jesus,

so that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.

Here is Today’s Message

Ezekiel 37:15-28 The word of the LORD came to me:

Mortal, take a stick and write on it, “For Judah, and the Israelites associated with it”: then take another stick and write on it, “For Joseph (the stick of Ephraim) and all the house of Israel associated with it”:

and join them together into one stick, so that they may become one in your hand.

And when your people say to you,

Question in the Bible

“Will you not show us what what you mean by these?”

Answer in the Bible

say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD; I am about to take the stick of Joseph (which is in the hand of Ephraim) and the tribes of Israel associated with it; and I will put the stick of Judah upon it, and make them one stick, in order that they may be one in my hand.

When the sticks on which you write are in your hand before their eyes,

then say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: I will take the people of Israel from the nations among which they have gone, and will gather them from every quarter, and bring them to their own land.

I will make them one nation in the land, on the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king over them all. Never again shall they be two nations, and never again shall they be divided into two kingdoms.

They shall never again defile themselves with their idols and their detestable things, or with any of their transgressions. I will save them from all the apostasies into which they have fallen, and will cleanse them. Then they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

My servant David shall be king over them; and they shall all have one shepherd. They shall follow my ordinances and be careful to observe my statutes.

They shall live in the land that I gave to my servant Jacob, in which your ancestors lived; they and their children and their children’s children shall live there forever; and my servant David shall be their prince forever.

I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them; and I will bless them and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary among them forevermore.

My dwelling place shall be with them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Then the nations shall know that I the LORD sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary is among them forevermore.
