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 GNT 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 GNT 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 GNT 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 none of us can explain by ourselves a prophecy in the Scriptures.
For no prophetic message ever came just from the human will, but people 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 GNT Then out of the storm the Lord spoke to Job.
Job 40:6-7 GNT Then out of the storm the Lord spoke to Job once again.
Job 42:4-7 GNT You told me to listen while you spoke and to try to answer your questions.
Romans 10:14-17 GNT 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 not all have accepted the Good News. Isaiah 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 GNT I will rescue you from the people of Israel and from the Gentiles to whom I will send you.
You are to open their eyes 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 GNT 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.
