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 also will be the word that I speak–it will not fail to do what I plan for it; it will do everything I send it to do.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living,
so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed.
2 Peter 1:19-21 So we are even more confident of the message proclaimed by the prophets. You will do well to pay attention to it, because it is like a lamp shining in a dark place until the Day dawns and the light of the morning star shines in your hearts.
Above all else, however, remember that no one can explain by himself a prophesy in the Scriptures.
For no prophetic message ever came just from the will of man, but men were under the control of the Holy Spirit as they spoke the message that came from God.
How to hear and understand the Gospel
The LORD Answers Job
Job 38:1-3 Then out of the storm the LORD spoke to Job.
Who are you to question my wisdom with your ignorant, empty words?
Stand up now like a man and answer the questions I ask you.
Job 40:6-7 Then out of the storm the LORD spoke to Job once again.
Stand up now like a man, and answer my questions.
Job 42:4-7 You told me to listen while you spoke and to try to answer your questions.
In the past I knew only what others had told me, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.
So I am ashamed of all I have said and repent in dust and ashes.
After the LORD had finished speaking to Job, he said to Eliphaz, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you did not speak the truth about me, the way my servant Job did.
Romans 10:14-17 But how can they call to him for help if they have not believed? And how can they believe if they have not heard the message? And how can they hear if the message is not proclaimed?
And how can the message be proclaimed if the messengers are not sent out? As the scripture says, “How wonderful is the coming of messengers who bring good news!’
But no all have accepted the Good News. Isiah himself said, “Lord, who believed our message?”
So then, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message comes through preaching Christ.
Acts 26:17-18 I will rescue from the people of Israel and from the Gentiles to whom I will send you.
You are to open their eyes and and turn them from the darkness to the light and from the power of Satan to God, so that through their faith in me they will have their sins forgiven and receive their place among God’s chosen people.’
Romans 15:4-7 Everything written in the Scriptures was written to teach us, in order that we might have hope through the patience and encouragement which the Scriptures give us.
And may God, the source of patience and encouragement, enable you to have the same point of view among yourselves by following the example of Christ Jesus,
so that all of you together may praise with one voice the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Gospel to the Gentiles
Accept one another, then, for the glory of God, as Christ has accepted you.
Here is Today’s Message
Psalm 60:6-8 From his sanctuary God has said, “In triumph I will divide Shechem and distribute Sukkoth Valley to my people.
Gilead is mine, and Manasseh too; Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my royal scepter.
But I will use Moab as my washbowl, and I will throw my sandals on Edom, as a sign that I own it. Did the Philistines think they would shout in triumph over me?”
Psalm 89:30-35 “But if his descendants disobey my law and do not live according to my commands,
if they disregard my instructions and do not keep my commandments,
then I will punish them for their sins; I will make them suffer for their wrongs.
But I will not stop loving David or fail to keep my promise to him.
I will not break my covenant with him or take back even one promise I made them.
“Once and for all I have promised by my holy name; I will never lie to David.
Genesis 12:4-9 When Abram was seventy-five years old, he started out from Haran, as the LORD had told him to do; and Lot went with him.
Abram took his wife Sarai, his nephew Lot, and all the wealth and all the slaves they had acquired in Haran, and they started out for the land of Canaan. When they arrived in Canaan,
Abram traveled through the land until he came to the sacred tree of Moreh, the holy place at Shechem. (At that time the Canaanites were still living in the land.)
The LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “This is the country that I am going to give to your descendants.” Then Abram built an altar there to the LORD, who had appeared to him.
After that, he moved on south to the hill country east of the city of Bethel and set up his camp between Bethel on the west and Ai on the east. There also he built an altar and worshipped the LORD.
Then he moved on from place to place, going toward the southern part of Canaan.
Joshua 13:27-28 In the Jordan Valley it included Beth Haram, Bethnimrah, Sukkoth, and Zaphon, the rest of the kingdom of King Sihon of Heshbon. Their western border was the Jordan River as far north as Lake Galilee.
These were the cities and towns given to the families of the tribe of Gad as their possession.
Deuteronomy 33:17 Joseph has the strength of a bull, The horns of a wild ox. His horns are Manasseh’s thousands And Ephraim’s ten thousands. With them he gores the nations And pushes them to the ends of the earth.”
David’s Military Victories
2 Samuel 8:1-3 Some time later King David attacked the Philistines again, defeated them, and ended their control over the land.
The he defeated the Moabites. He made the prisoners lie down on the ground and put two out of every three of them to death. So the Moabites became his subjects and paid taxes to him.
Then he defeated the king of the Syrian state of Zobah, Hadadezer son of Rehob, as Hadadezer was on his way to restore his control over the territory by the upper Euphrates River.
2 Samuel 8:14 He set up military camps throughout Edom, and the people there became his subjects. The LORD made David victorious everywhere.
