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
Job 38:1-2 Then the Lord spoke to Job from a whirlwind and said,
Job 40:6-7 Then the Lord spoke to Job again from the storm:
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.
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!”
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.
