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 ETR In the same way, my words leave my mouth, and they don’t come back without results. My words make the things happen that I want to happen. They succeed in doing what I send them to do.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ETR All Scripture is given by God. And all Scripture is useful for teaching and for showing people what is wrong in their lives. It is useful for correcting faults and teaching the right way to live. 

Using the Scriptures, those who serve God will be prepared and will have everything they need to do every good work.

2 Peter 1:19-21 ETR This makes us more sure about what the prophets said. And it is good for you to follow closely what they said, which is like a light shining in a dark place. You have that light until the day begins and the morning star brings new light to your minds. 

Most important of all, you must understand this: No prophecy in the Scriptures comes from the prophet’s own understanding. 

No prophecy ever came from what some person wanted to say. But people were led by the Holy Spirit and spoke words from God.

How to hear and understand the Gospel 

God Speaks to Job

Job 38:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Job from a whirlwind and said,

“Who is this ignorant person saying these foolish things?

Job 40:6-7 Then the Lord spoke to Job again from the storm:

“Brace yourself and get ready to answer the questions I will ask you.

Job 42:4-7 You said to me, ‘Listen, and I will speak. I will ask you questions, and you will answer me.’

In the past I heard about you, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.

And I am ashamed of myself. I am so sorry. As I sit in the dust and ashes, I promise to change my heart and my life.”
The Lord Gives Job’s Wealth Back
After the Lord finished talking to Job, he spoke to Eliphaz from Teman. He said, “I am angry with you and your two friends, because you did not tell the truth about me, as my servant Job did.

Romans 10:14-17 But before people can pray to the Lord for help, they must believe in him. And before they can believe in the Lord, they must hear about him. And for anyone to hear about the Lord, someone must tell them. 

And before anyone can go and tell them, they must be sent. As the Scriptures say, “How wonderful it is to see someone coming to tell good news!”

But not all the people accepted that good news. Isaiah said, “Lord, who believed what we told them?” 
So faith comes from hearing the Good News. And people hear the Good News when someone tells them about Christ.

Acts 26:17-18 I will keep you safe from your own people and from the non-Jewish people, the ones I am sending you to. 

You will make them able to understand the truth. They will turn away from darkness to the light. They will turn away from the power of Satan, and they will turn to God. Then their sins can be forgiven, and they can be given a place among God’s people—those who have been made holy by believing in me.’”

Romans 15:4-7 Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us. Those things were written so that we could have hope. That hope comes from the patience and encouragement that the Scriptures give us. 

All patience and encouragement come from God. And I pray that God will help you all agree with each other, as Christ Jesus wants. 

Then you will all be joined together. And all together you will give glory to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Christ accepted you, so you should accept each other. This will bring honor to God. 

Here is Today’s message

1 Peter 1:10-12 The prophets studied carefully and tried to learn about this salvation. They spoke about the grace that was coming to you.

The Spirit of Christ was in those prophets. And the Spirit was telling about the sufferings that would happen to Christ and about the glory that would come after those sufferings. The prophets tried to learn about what the Spirit was showing them–when it would happen and what the world would be like at that time.

It was made clear to them that their service was not for themselves. They were serving you when they told about the things you have now heard. You heard them from those who told you the Good News with the help of the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Even the angels would like very much to know more about these things you were told.

2 Peter 1:19-21 This makes us more sure about what the prophets said. And it is good for you to follow closely what they said, which is like a light shining in a dark place. You have that light until the day begins and the morning star brings new light to your minds. 

Most important of all, you must understand this: No prophecy in the Scriptures comes from the prophet’s own understanding. 

No prophecy ever came from what some person wanted to say. But people were led by the Holy Spirit and spoke words from God.

Ephesians 3:8-13 I am the least important of all God’s people. But he gave me this gift–to tell the non-Jewish people the Good News about the riches Christ has. These riches are too great to understand fully.

And God gave me the work of telling all people about the plan for his secret truth. That secret truth has been hidden in him since the beginning of time. He is the one who created everything.

His purpose was that all the rulers and powers in the heavenly places will now know many different ways he shows his wisdom. They will know this because of the church.

This agrees with the plan God had since the beginning of time. He did what he planned, and he did it through Christ Jesus our Lord.

In Christ we come before God with freedom and without fear. We can do this because of our faith in Christ.

So I ask you not to be discouraged because of what is happening to me. My sufferings are for your benefit–for your honor and glory.
