Welcome to cross the bridge with David Magee weekend edition Pastor David McGee is internationally recognized for his unique conversational verse by verse and chapter by chapter teaching through the word of God. We encourage you to visit, cross the bridge.com to study the Scriptures along with Pastor David right now open your Bible to the Old Testament book of Job and follow long for today's teaching in this series of special weekend edition programs. Pastor David has been teaching lessons from the life of Job. Job is one of the oldest books in the Bible we are finding out that what needed to be learned. Back then, still needs to be learned by us today as we continue studying chapter 33 now, here's Pastor David Stern with the Churchill chapter 33.
Please show your my speech and listen to all my words are open my mouth speaks in my mouth. My words come from my upright heart, my lips utter pure knowledge the spirit as God has made me in the grass of the Almighty gives me life. Verse five. If you can and show me your words in order before me. Take your stand.
Truly I am as your spokesman before God. I also have been formed out of clay. Surely no fear of me will terrify you, nor will my hand. The heavy on surely you have spoken in my hearing and I have heard the sound of your words saying I am pure without transgression. I am innocent and there is no iniquity in the yet he finds occasions against me he counts me as his enemy. He puts my feet in the stocks he watches all my pass – you are not righteous.
I will answer you.
For God is greater than man, why you contend with him, for he does not give an accounting of any of his words forgotten Lacey in one way or another man does not perceive it in a dream and vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon man slumbering on their bed. Then he opens the years as men, and seals their instruction in order to turn man from his D and conceal prime farmland. He keeps back his soul from the pit and his life from perishing sort. Man is also chasing with pain on his bed and was strong pain in many of his bones, so that his life according to Brad and his soul succulent food/waste away from site, and his bones stick out which ones were not seen. Yes, his soul draws near the pit and his life to the executioners.
Verse 23. If there is a messenger for him and mediator, one among the thousand to show man. His uprightness then he is gracious to any cyst delivered him from going down to the pit. I have found a ransom. His flesh shall be young, like a child's he shall return to the days of issues, he shall pray to God and he will delight in you shall see his face with joy, for he restores to man his righteousness. Then he looks at Nana and says I ascend and perverted what was right and did not profit me first 20 he will redeem his soul from going down to the pit and his life shall see the light. The whole God works all lease things twice. In fact, three times with a man to bring back his soul from the pit that he may be enlightened with the light of life. Give ear Job listen to me hold your peace and I will speak. If you have anything to say answer me speak for our desire to justify your if not, listen to me hold your peace in our teaching wisdom notice. Alaina starts and there's there's compassion you narrator's voice he cares about Job. You can tell and then he goes in here he talks about real repentance turn in your heart to God. It's interesting when you look at the middle of this chapter to chapter 33 verse 12.
Look in this you are not righteous. I will answer you. For God is greater than man, why you contend with him, for he does not give an accounting of any of his words. Joe didn't start out in sin, but apparently as he kept going. He fell in the seven years lifeless and trying to explain the bad things that happen. Job considered himself innocent and found fault with God and trying to explain the bad thing to happen. Job considered himself innocent and found fault with God and you know what everybody does this. It takes all sorts of different forms a common form is religion kills people when you mean religion kills that's a copout man kills people, not religion, people kill people, not religion, yet obviously Islam when people are saying you don't have to go through hell if you kill people you got an issue there is not religion.
Let's say that men men kill and then so Joe is trying to explain and sort through all the stuff but as he dies, as he tries, he condemns God and tries to justify himself. You can't do that sometimes we try over what you said that the unit did you hear what they did but I should have done that.
Did you hear what they said doesn't matter what was wrong and God is so much higher than us in working these things out thinking we have to trust we have to trust and if you're walking in fear you're not trusting God so I'm not supposed to be afraid of Isis value must first be afraid us that's man. What can man do to you. The worst thing man could do to you is the best thing that's put your hand in Jesus and then Isaiah chapter 55 is for my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways my ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
This next life was God's greatest deed involved meeting man's greatest need and that was forgiveness. Second, God's greatest deed involved meeting man's greatest need and ask forgiveness. That is every person's greatest knee.
I think it won't now not know they got have food water and shelter. Now if you don't have those things would happen to die and what happens when you die depends on what you're forgiven or not. Forgiveness is the greatest knee in this topic God's greatest deed. Incidentally, if you keep reading and that Isaiah 55 passage to couple other interesting verses, Isaiah 55 verse 10 as for as the rains come down in the snow from heaven, and do not return their water the earth and make it bring forth in the that it may give see to the sower and bread to the eater, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth shall not return to me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it to you shall go out with Julie in the lead out with peace in the mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Instead of the thorn show, the cypress tree and instead of the briar shall come up the road archery and it shall be to the Lord for a name for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off successor to sign when these things happen.
One of the signs is the briar show, the myrtle tree was driving and one day three years ago for your nor the briar patch crossroad here. Dennis threw flowers in the middle of Rogers slow down ended up going over worked. I know because I bought the property owner.
How many times in briar Dr. flowers were from crape Myrtle's myrtle tree in the Bible. So when you look across the street you see bushes over there is a murderous and you'll see them plowing the display misread this again and be let out with peace, mountains and the hills shall break forth in the scene before you and all the trees of the village of clap their hands. Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree instead of the briar shall come up the myrtle tree and it shall be to the Lord's friend name for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off. Praise God anything.
Now when we look at the last verses here in chapter 33 there's the turning look at verse 28 he will redeem his soul from going down to the pit and his life shall see the light. Verse 25. You have the second party shall return to the days as you or your fire for God when you're a kid.
Remember those days, in verse 26 says that he will restore to man his righteousness don't mess this it says for he H restores to man his H righteousness. It's not saying that he will restore a man's righteousness now not he will restore to man his righteousness.
He puts his righteousness on the person before the New Testament the church is to be wrapped in the robe of righteousness in verse 27 pieces I have sent her I was wrong. Can you say that without qualification, nor my justification because it is none of them just as soon as sometimes we think others sin against us.
And sometimes they do feel it's interesting.
David just went through a season where we just trashed a lot of things in his life with Bathsheba with the kingdom and not abandon the battle and murder conspiracy in all these Bible says that he's a man after God's own heart in David after all that messing up the kingdom and mess up his friends and mess it up it Bathsheba's family and all these things he says to God against the in the alone, have I said the main issue is not what somebody else is done what you've done against God. You can't get somebody else to be forgiven with God.
You can ask God to forgive you if I did that a few years ago, do it again. Hebrews chapter 8 verse 12 says for I will be merciful to their unrighteousness and their sins and lawless deeds.
I will remember no more. And he says again in Hebrews 10 1617 this is the covenant that I will make with them after those days as the Lord I will put my laws into their heart's and in their minds. I will write them.
That's what God is doing this past week with us read the parable of the sower and memorizing Ephesians 289. He's put in his word into our hearts. He spent his word into our minds.
Any assets their sins and their lawless deeds all remember no more. And that phrase no more he will remember our sins no more. He will remember our transgressions no more, and then Revelation 21, four, and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.
There shall be no more – no more sorrow no more crying, no more sickness no more death no more pain. All things become what we have in front of us. That's what we need to be talking about Jesus. The marriage supper of the land between about half an and making sure were ready. Bible says that these days hold trying times will fall away, no valuable plans on following but it's been my experience as a Christian and a Christian won't tell in teaching about long time.
It's in those basics reading the word going to church. Those are two things and so is your coming here and were read every day of your protected God's blessing insulating beautiful world is going crazy. Pastor David will be back in less than one minute. As he continues teaching in the book of Job.

This is all that I have wanted to hear me. Here is my mark that the Almighty would answer me that my prosecutor had written a book on the new living translation verse. If only someone would listen to me. Look, I will sign my name is not defense.
Let the Almighty answer me that my accuser write out the charges against me Job's early.
The oldest looking the Bible and there's a Job early on, the book of Genesis before Moses you when I have charges written out against is the 10 Commandments and nobody in the entire work gets to the 10 Commandments and is what we talked about the 10 Commandments and when we talk about the 10 Commandments following a walk you through those things.
It's to help you to use those exact same things and witnessing the people asking them to questions us while we produce that booklet. The two 510 two questions five minutes, 10 Commandments, we take the 10 Commandments I think THE stairway to heaven that we can't know that shows us we need a Messiah.
Ephesians 215, having abolished in his flesh the enmity that is the law of commandments contained in ordinances so as to create in himself one new man from the two best making peace are new living translation for Christ himself has brought peace to us. United Jews and Gentiles into one people when in his own body on the cross he broke down the wall of hostility that separated us. He did this by ending the system, the wall of its commandments and regulations and make peace between Jews and Gentiles by creating in himself one new people from the two groups together as one body. Christ reconciled both groups to God by means of his death on the cross in our hostility towards each other was put to death Christ brought peace to us, that will price the high price his death on the cross we got a guilty son over there at one time were we were all guilty son and he looked out upon himself. Maybe tonight, maybe his symptoms weigh in on may be there. Shame and guilt tied to something happened as a janitor and you want to write out what sin is still holding you back or that you recall are you saying, they'd write that down on a piece of paper and take it to cross Job in chapter 1925, a sister, I know that my Redeemer lives. I'm so grateful that Jesus died for us. We need to remember the tomb is empty. Jesus is alive and what he's doing is not a ministry he's interceding on our back. He's representing us father. That's one of my heat. He's forgiven. They just pray this morning. He's covered in my righteousness. Hebrews 725 therefore he is also able to say to the uttermost those who come to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them was Jesus doing here tonight. He's making intercession for you and for me he's making intercession for your friend for your family member. The struggle is making intercession for your family member is making intercession for you.
The new living translation. Hebrews 725 system. Therefore, he is able once and forever save those who come to God through him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf. He is able, (thank you that you are able you are able to save to the uttermost. Pray for our lost loved Ray for our family and friends, and her coworkers pray for the people we go to school with God.
