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 KJV So what shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth; it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness;
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
2 Peter 1:19-21 KJV We have also a more sure word of prophecy; where unto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts;
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.
For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man; but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
How to hear and understand the Gospel
Job 38:1-2 KJV Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Job 40:6-7 KJV Then answered the LORD unto Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Gird up thy lions now like a man; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
Job 42:4-7 KJV Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak; I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me.
I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear; but now mine eye seeth thee.
Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
And it will be so, that after the LORD spoke these words unto Job, the LORD said to E-li’-phaz the Te’-manite, My wrath is kindled against thee, and against thy two friends; for ye have not spoken of me the thing that is right, as my servant Job hath.
Romans 10:14-17 KJV How then shall they call on him of whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be went? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For E-sa’-ias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Acts 26:17-18 KJV Delivering from thee the people, and from the Gen’-tiles, unto whom now I send thee,
To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Sa’-tan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
Romans 15:4-7 KJV For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Now the God patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Je’-sus;
That ye nay with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Je’-sus Christ.
Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
Here is today’s message
Matthew 3:13-17 Then cometh Je-sus from Gal’-i-lee to Jor’-dan unto John, to be baptized of him.
But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
And Je’-sus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now; for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
And Je–sus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water; and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him;
And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
Isaiah 11:1-5 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jes’-se, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots;
And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;
And shall make him of quick understanding in the fear of the LORD; and he shall not judge after the sight of his eyes, neither reprove after the hearing of his ears;
But with righteousness shall he judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth; and he shall smite the earth with with the rod of his mouth, and with the breath of his lips shall he slay the wicked.
And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and faithfulness the girdle of his reins.
Matthew 17:4-9 Then answered Pe’-ter, and said unto Je’-sus, Lord, it is good for us to be here; if thous wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Mo’-ses, and one for E-li’-as.
While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud over-shadowed them; and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him,
And when the disciples heard it, they fell on there face, and were sore afraid.
And Je’-sus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid.
And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Je’-sus only.
And as they came down from the mountain, Je’-sus charged them, saying, Tell the vision to no man, until the Son of man be risen against from the dead.
John 12:27-29 Now is my soul troubled, and what shall I say? Father, save me from this hour; but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
The people therefore, that stood by, and heard it, said that it thundered; others said, An angel spake to him.
