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

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

that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2 Peter 1:19-21 RSV And we have the prophetic word made more sure. You will do well to pay attention 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 prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one’s own interpretation,

because no prophecy ever came by the impulse of man, but men moved of God by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.

 How to hear and understand the Gospel 

Job 38:1-2 RSV Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind:

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

Job 40:6-7 RSV 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 RSV Hear, and I will speak; I will question you, and you declare to me.’

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

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

After the LORD had spoken these words to Job, the LORD said to E-li’-phaz the Te’-ma-nite: “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 RSV But how are men to call upon him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher?

And how can men preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who  preach good news!

But they have not all heeded the gospel; for I-sai’ah says, “Lord, who has believed what he has heard from us?

So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes by the preaching of Christ.

Acts 26:17-18 RSV delivering you from the people and from the Gentiles–to whom I send you 

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

Romans 15:4-7 RSV For whatever was written if former days was written for our instruction, by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have    hope.

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

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

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

Here is Today’s message

1 John 4:1-3 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God; for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

By this you know the Spirit of God; every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God,

and every spirit which does not confess Jesus is not of  God. This is the spirit of antichrist, of which you heard that it was coming, and now it is in the world already.

1 Corinthians 14:26-33 What then, brethren? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification.

If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn; and let one interpret.

But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.

Let two or three prophets speak let the others weigh what is said.

If a revelation is made to another sitting by, let the first be silent.

For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged;

and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets.

For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, 

1 Corinthians 12:1-3 Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be uninformed.

You know that when you were heathen, you were led astray to dumb idols, however you may have been moved.

Therefore I want you to understand that no one speaking by the Spirit of God ever says “Jesus be cursed!” and no one can say “Jesus is Lord” except by the Holy Spirit.
