Welcome to cross the bridge with David McGee 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 have hundreds of his teachings through the many books of the Bible, and 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 along for today's teaching pastor David has been teaching practical lessons from the life of Job. We are finding out that what needed to be learned.
Back then, still needs to be learned today. I think you'll find that to be true today and tomorrow as we take a closer look at chapter 39 now here's Pastor David. What Job needed was and Lance to show up with the EMTs. What he got was the police working notably, they really should be as friends and offer him comfort and compassion. There's a time for us to play user role, but I think far too often we play the place when we should play the empty standards are members. What do you know the time when the wrong mountain goats. Can you mark when the deer gives birth can remember the months of the social do you know the time delay Bay Area the ground down.
They bring forth durian they deliver their offspring. The young ones are healthy, they grow strong with grain, they depart, and do not return the new living translation. Verse four says their younger in the open fields and leave home and never return. So the first four verses about that God's underlying difference between him and Joe was right on the spot to set the wild donkey free and loose the bonds of the ownership goes home.
I have made the wilderness and barren land. His dwelling he scorns the term of the city.
He does not heed the shouts of the driver. The range of the mountains as his pastor and he searches after every green thing so now I start silent while donkey for four verses and verse five in the new living translation reads gives the wild donkey. It's very tied to its roots. It is so amazing. Every chapter of the New Testament as a single chapter of the Hebrew Scriptures has Jesus shall set the donkey free and God is God and he didn't mean anything for the definitions of God I am that I am he self-sustaining. He doesn't need us. He wants us and loves us. He doesn't need because is God alone or in the whole. Does he ever need anything, because he's got except for three times in the Bible it says God, Jesus needed something when he sent the disciples to go ahead and Jerusalem and get Passover ready to get the donkey. Jesus said, tell the master needs the dark's the only place in the whole Bible or God himself needs anything, but he does need it. We needed a need to show the disciples that even though about to get really scary still in charge through prophecy does let's know God is not getting caught by surprise.
He knew thousands of years ago who would be our president now. He knows who's going to be our president next year is not dealt with pain serious source point of prayer for the selection so speaks about the donkey four verses in verse nine starts about the wild ox. There's none will the wild ox be willing to serve each will seedbed by your manger. In these little phrases that we say and we have an interesting note one songwriter who takes these little phrases makes megahertz out of about the UN things. It's interesting is that phrase they used to say that I will say anymore when somebody comes in and they leave the door open. We say we are born in a barn.
Well I said that one day to the kids and I came in with the door open. The holiday AC was all that came in the barn and it occurred to me who was born in a barn and why I thought what a weird thing for us to say say something derogatory once my visibility. But what were you born in Farmington way down here on the totem pole with a sale going in a bar. The Malik Melis became the King of Kings and Lord of lords was born in a bar for you for me made percent new bonds while box in the front was Rose will he plow the valleys behind you.
We trust them because estate is great or will you leave your labor to them.
We trust him to bring home your grain and gather it to your threshing floor's again.
We have four verses to the lockbox. Now you can do a little digging and found some interesting things about the goat donkey and while box villages are some interesting stuff in verse 13. The windows of the ostrich ways proudly but our dreams and opinions that the kindly storks she leaves her eggs in the ground and runs them in the dust. She forgets that a friend may crush them or that a wild beast may break she treats you harshly as though they were not hurt her labors in vain. Without concern because God deprived her of wisdom and did not endow her with understanding when she lists her cell phone, how she scorns the horse and its rider now verse 12 in the King James brings up an interesting word without believe him that he will bring home that I see and gather into the part that was just the road seemed like there about what about your attention back to something.
But now verse 13 we have the ostrich is larger and faster so you get sick forces in the notice what it says. Why is the ostrich not one in this first when it says this. These are animals in salable are the good about this, but whether or not so sharp about this, but it says that about the ostrich and acres of Italian any keys back to verse 12, because he was lifeless. The ostrich is not wise because she does not take care of her seat her off. X shows a careful and the Bible here points out that that's a sign of lack of wisdom. I have actually got to meet ostriches when we travel around the nation was a precious family in California that God used our ministry really touch so when the times we were in California.
They should hate you when you're in the area. If you guys want to combine a particular RV here the great women out there, they had like a Minnie's out there not submitting. They had horses and lawnmowers in ostriches and chickens and roosters. The big plumes in style from Chris roosters that he woke up very early every day for the ostriches. It was kind interesting watching them tear why you have to respect the power of the ostrich in this the these things have some serious causal and they were things I do. It brings out verse 18. She is much faster than a horse and rider begin to notice it's because she doesn't care for her younger offspring. Her seed because God deprived her of wisdom. So when God said brings the ostrich. He said trains come from another works of didn't get any better.
Again, the concept of the sea. Please don't listing finances.
When I talk about the seed that's one of the many symbols which will last remember we remind you fear he personally God said the man, be fruitful and multiply. We are still under that spiritually we are to be fruitful and multiply. It's interesting were studying the book of Ephesians talks about the armor first thing it says the good acrylics.
So here's the letter life lesson, going with that being very careful with your seat. Make sure ground or your heart is a good place to receive because when we think about finances and seen, and in the candy the word of God is also called the city is in effect which hole in the parable of the seller, Jesus gives us great secrets and he not only tells us parable but he also explains the parable of the sewer and explains what the CDS and basically says the seed is the word of God and that for different people. He gives the seed to three of them. The seed doesn't work with them and asked the pastor's fault. And then there's one ticket and then there's why the seed falls on good ground which is symbolic of their heart which the seed in the sea hits the ground. It takes often the fruitfulness multiplies. We talk about reproduction and see in the Bible we need to remember because occasionally I hear this look whether it's this church or in the church and apply tonight.
I'm reading the whole chapter. Job 30 every midweight we get the whole chapter on the Sunday mornings we go through a few verses we have somewhere between 50 to 75.
Sometimes as many as 100 verses on a Sunday morning some of your very gracious and encouraging all managers got so much how I teach last Thursday or last Sunday and print whenever somebody else comes up.
Teachers please encourage them cinnamon email Texel, they sure enjoyed your teaching. If God lays on your heart to knowingly praise, you ladies who sit with my wife nor send her tax email hate preacher to work as teachers need their being attacked all the time. We need your prayers. It's interesting because there is a all manner received so much from that teacher have several people say that and then there's one it says I didn't get anything out on will help me with this.
There's three people sitting on the same row they got something out of it and you didn't worse occurred if somebody is reading Scripture, we must just say that somebody is not anointed as a teacher, but they reading Scripture, you should receive from that it's the same sort of thing is is people every now and again over here. Somebody here were Schulenberg and that remain immune your worship was a very kind goes over somebody to rose from you. That was in tears and the presence of the Lord, why was worship not very good.
As a condition of the heart, I can worship to a pipe organ or a cappella group out in a matter in my heart is in the right place is possible to receive and losing the ties in with this is our hearts have to be tender to evangelize. If our hearts are intended when I can care if anybody is lost. When I get to care how many people get St. Tammany people get baptized when you stink like that. Be careful, your hearts in a bad place if it doesn't matter to you that people are getting saved here that people get baptized the people be a disciple that doesn't store your heart something is wrong with your heart, lifeless ears. If you or someone are anyone says they are not receiving from the word of God should lower their heart is pretty vague and no it's not. If you are someone or anyone says they're not receiving from the word of God. There something wrong with their heart part of the reasoning Isaiah 5511 tells us the social model would be negotiable from amount shall not return immediately shall accomplish that. What I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for just that the retention please God is my words and when it goes forth powerful if it bounces back.
Something was wrong with the word, and not with the proclaimer of the word in which the somebody just gets up and talks the whole time and doesn't shoot any scriptures, then you got a whalebone what they're saying that the diversity was waived on the word of God meet the lady with the parable of the sorts support verse 19 says, have you given the horse drinks and he closed his neck with thunder.
Can you frighten him like a locust is majestic snorting strikes tear Pastor David will be back in less than one minute.

You can also text the word encourage 294253 to receive a short encouraging text from us each day.
That's 94253 and now back to the teacher. I'm sure some of you know some of the horses are skittish says.
Flavor with a locust there very very skittish and part of it is about an hour each other head which takes vision different than our and I know this is Nora's horse lover has put some of those dreams and things up in the shelter minister here. She was actually younger earlier life is tall, equestrian lessons and actually went to the local and regional and then went to the nationals in Hunter Jumper writer that's really jump over the fences on 5.1 first times we went out riding.
I said like I haven't written a whole lot saying Irene Camille Gorsuch lessons that might be good all you have got just the perfect was she so she's nice, she's tenderů Yeah okay okay electric so I get up on the horse.
I think I is and what's with the sources named snake is not encouraging snake arrived in the list is all antsy and jumping horses all jumpy. She so well with her. This place in a way that she's about to get on over this so she got on the horse and started jumping over trees that were falling down and it was like poetry in motion never seen that close before.
And the way the human body works with the horse just is perfect. It is just amazing horses are skittish and a locust conflict leaving even another big verse 21 he paused in the Valley rejoices in the strength he gallops into the clash of arms in boxes of fear and is not frightened nor does he turn back from the silica quiver battles against glittering spear and javelin devours the distance with fierceness and rage, nor does he come to because the trumpeter sounded at the blast of the trumpet. He says aha and he smells the balance from afar thunder Captains and shouting Salado horses, skittish about something like the locust, amazingly enough, they get in a battle and they are steady as a rock.
The cannon that smell of gunpowder with swords flying around, and yet the chart right into the battle and yet a locust causes fear hard to imagine the parallels we do great battles, but they would get freaked out about a small thing is 26.
Does the hall fly by your wisdom and spread its wings towards itself does the angle mount.at your command and make its nest on high rocket dwells and resides in the crack of the rock in the stronghold lyrics buys out the prey. Its eyes observe from afar. It's young one's second line and where the spleen are there it is. The chapter ends the chapter divisions came about in 1400 the first divisions came actually and 15. About 55 the first Bible that had verse divisions of the Geneva Bible that we have copies of upstairs. That was the first Bible that had voting visions at this place almost wonder about the placement with me to chapter 40 verse one says.
Moreover, the Lord answered Job and said show the one who contends with the Almighty correcting he who rebukes God let him answer. Then Job answered avoidance of the whole. I am vile. What shall answer you. I lay my hand over my mouth. Once I have spoken that I will not answer yes twice, but I will proceed no further. God, in talking about nature has shown another difference between God as you seek God plainly in nature and creation.
You got things like honeybees that come back to the-fire dance shows other beings where food is where it is how far it is what direction of that now the mystery is how those beings didn't starve to death while they were involving to do that needs or something like the bombardier beetle who actually has a little explosive thing in his body that has a little igniter smart thing and it shoots out the soul excluding outback.
How many beetles died while they were involving that little thing I'm being cynical and facetious.
Those creatures had to be created when that in order to survive. Were planning a trip to the creation Museum in Kentucky and the basal information coming forward but if you're interested in that going to start thinking about were probably looking at your desk and a happy great the issues you can Job control animals now any of the animals currently and we can either not knowing God can can God control handles it a design created the whole bit is God talking about animals well mentally were thinking were halfway through the Old Testament so may remind you we believe the Job the book is about spoken of in Genesis 46 verse 13.
This is the sons of Issachar Portola.
Joe mentioned will and we believe that could be the very Job, Jesus the son of Issachar is one of the 12 tribes of Israel that certain crowd was responsible for a certain thing was that they were to ask the first five books of the Bible would often memorize the whole thing so Genesis takes us back and reminds us about animals and reminds us about the ark where God obviously was in control animals.
No human could of quality items for way and if you do not believe in universal flood. We encourage additional resort is viewed believe in a universal flood that there was a flood that water covered all the earth and have to explain how their sea shells on top of every mountain in the world so got God control them. We also have the donkey talking the bail we got the plagues of Egypt falls in place the funds locust. We have the scapegoats where they would do David to Yom Kippur, the goat would run out but then they would come back in the scarlet thread they put on the scapegoat would come back and it would be white except Josephus, the Jewish historian, records that the scapegoat started coming back with the scarlet thread still read at about 38 date but there was no more remission of sins. The scapegoat because Jesus shed his blood for us now starts just a minute before closing the ark is there some stuff in there.
That's just so phenomenal on gender. Genesis 64 and it really shows a demonstrates God's impotent. He's God is nobody like he has no opposite Satan is not as opposite.
Satan is the opposite of Michael or Gabriel is created thing God has a lot Genesis 64 talks about noises that were giants alerted in those days also afterword when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were bold men of renown that I come to Sparks this thing with an excellent what does know I'm not attached can't do it justice. So that something will talk about sometime in the future is an interesting thing in Genesis 6 minus is this is the genealogy of melanoma was a just man, perfect in his generation to generation with in the Hebrew it's perfect in his jeans.
She GEN the gas which would seem to indicate that there had been some genetic disruption. Perhaps in an affluent again. I'm not going to print. But here's the interesting thing we talk about the article that I couldn't really hold all those animals and so many people just discount the story like it never happened.
I'm Christians. They kinda go with that but they don't really believe it happened but it happened and with things is interesting when you go to measure out the ark 300 cubits think 15 cubits, so that's 450 feet long 75 feet wide that she is perfect. That's about 400,000 m│. That's the equivalent of 570 railroad cars and give them kind of a modern day equivalent of 100,000 m│. The huge ocean liner Queen Elizabeth to one of the largest boats of all time. Measures 480,000 m│ of art to the ark was almost as big as that huge ship. I easily could held out two things you should do your kindness bundle in this delightful puzzle we call the word of God. Genesis 7 once existed in the Lord said to know what coming to the arguing all your household because I've seen that you are righteous before me in this generation. Another interesting phrase in the Hebrew you shall take with you. Seven. Each of every clean animal and nailing this email to each of animals are unclean, a male and his female OKC's mistake seven clean animals and into of the unclean. How did Noah know the descriptions for the animals that were clean and unclean wouldn't come for hundreds of years.
How did Noah know which animals were clean and which rounds were unclean and bring this fresh to you and your trying to grasp it answers.
I have gotten to think about this a little bit is actually pretty simple. If seven of them came up they were clean animals if two of them came up they were unclean. Noah did not really decide anything out think I just set the right ones the right you think about something else.
There's another version here. Genesis a for then the ark rested in the seventh month, the 17th day of the month on the mountain air. When you get a question about the word of God giant down in the back of the Bible and wait got to this would stop me for a while and one time when we were celebrating Passover. Some something that had to be planned from the beginning of the world that shows that God is out side of time and space, he's bigger than all that we just celebrated Passover feast of unleavened bread firstfruits.
I talked about Sunday. According to the secular calendar. Do you happen to recall when Passover occurred it was in the seventh month, on the 14th day, but this isn't the 14th day this is the 17th day so Jesus was crucified on the passer. Three days later was firstfruits the feast of firstfruits. It was on the feast of firstfruits that Jesus was resurrected from the dead on the seventh month, the 17th day the exact anniversary of the day. That ark rested on the mountain of Ararat. Thousands of years before it got impressive or what whatever you're dealing with God can handle these big God, what do you think God is saying to you tonight, perhaps of the teaching perhaps of the day when she speak to you been listening to Pastor David McGee on cross the bridge weekend edition union again tomorrow afternoon as Pastor David continues teaching on most stations.
