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 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 in this series.

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 chapters 19 and 20. Now here's Pastor David.

We've been looking at Job for he will restore Tomlinson last week the first two chapters of Joe.

It's written at Job was a good man, strong, faithful man now interestingly enough demand interacting with his family because one of the reasons he did these offerings is chapter 1 verse five he says it may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts. This Job did regularly selectors account of an issue with this kids following the Lord's children, his buildings, his crops is animals wiped out and God even says that Job is a good man and the enemy comes and says hey LMS with Joe and incidentally the enemy was already walking around following Joe he's not omniscient, not omnipresent. He's not everywhere at once. Satan is not that's God. Only God. Satan is a created being. Satan is not God's offices.

The opposite of Satan would be a Michael or Gabriel at the head angel powerful angel.

So he's watching Job, he comes to God's and goddesses.

It's almost like have you been considering the servant Joe into the enemy is allowed by God to do these things. God didn't do it's recorded in the first two chapters that God didn't do okay. So when Job says the Lord gives and he says and the Lord has taken away. He's misstating he came to an incorrect conclusion based on the limited knowledge he had because he we have knowledge way past our pay grade. If you but we have knowledge like we were settled in heaven watching this conversation between God and the enemy. And it's the enemy that says hey I want to do less business. Job is blaming God for something the enemy did as he looked at the ninth. I can almost promise you that everybody in here has that same issue and the God who knows everything to sent his son here to earth to die for you. Was thinking today. Jesus wasn't just born in Bethlehem. But that's where he came forth on planet Earth. He existed before he existed before anything else existed. He created everything is what the gospel of Johnson's Easter Sunday is upon the throne.

The Angels are worshiping him, and he leaves and comes here and were even told that when one person repents and Jesus led many to repent is one person like Patrick told the angels rejoice in that sweet silly during the ministry of Jesus: so there want to name an ally, all of 00 yes he got mad crazy, this is awesome and they cheered. These are the angels that are on our side. These are the angels that we actually have authority with as we pray, don't try to angels, pray to God about angels Psalm 91, and incidentally we think about angels that are there big buff beings, not little babies with diapers every time an angel stand comes forth in Scripture.

The first thing he says fear not, every single time wise and goes are scary coming there big buff beings and so they should let Barack and I got to okay the organ to be amazed at what goes on when they begin to see spiritually. So we talked last week we talked about washing her windshield because things happen and we let their lips skewer our future and obscure what we can see so the Bible study to appear from the get-go. We are invited. In chapter 1 of Joe's to a strategic meeting between God and Satan that Job was not aware of the skit that established in and also life lessons before we read the chapters we talked about somebody's last week and I wanted to go back over and because these are the consistent with the book of Job. I want to begin to register them. Our enemy is not omnipresent. He is not present everywhere at the same time, like God. Yes civilian our enemy is not omnipresent. He is not present everywhere at the same time like God has next life lessons.

Our enemy is not omniscient. He is not all-knowing like God is another life lesson we see in the book of Job, that it is Satan who is responsible for the message Joe not God.

We see in the book of Job, that is Satan who is responsible for the message. Joe not God. And it's interesting we talked about those levels of Bible study tip that the meaning of Satan in the Hebrew's accuser. One of his titles is the accuser of the brethren must go ahead and read Job chapter 19 and 20 set up here is to friends of Job. And then there's gonna be three supposed friends. When this happens, come to Joe and they are with him, and there silent for seven days.

That's of Jewish tradition called sitting Shiva when somebody dies. It's an interesting Judeo-Christian thing that you might not see in a lot of commentaries so they do that and then they start in on Joe and your incidental as well that it's you wake you at UH. It's really awake. That's the problem, and that's why this is happened to you.

Not only are they being judgmental and condemning the missing a glorious chance to be comforting, but you're too busy being religious and the chapters are, divided between new speaking in like build out and speak and then Job was be in chapter 19. Job was speaking first when Job answered and said, how long will you torment my soul, and break me in pieces with words. These 10 times you have reproached me. You are not ashamed that you have wronged me is talking to God and he says you are not ashamed that you live wrong. The verse four Nevaeh. Indeed, I have entered my error remains with me and indeed you exalt yourselves against me, and plead not disgrace against me, know then that God has wronged me, and has surrounded me with his net. If I cry out concerning wrong, I am not heard of. I cry aloud, there is no justice. He has fenced up my way so that I cannot pass as he has set darkness in the past he has strip me of my glory and taken the crown from my head. He breaks me down on every side, and I am going my hope he has uprooted like a tree. He has also kindled his wrath against me and he counts me as one of his enemies, his troops come together and build up the roads against me, they encamp all around. Not to. Now, again from reading chapter 1 and two we know how wrong he is and what he say God actually protected him and limited what the enemy could do the first Jesus can't do anything to job and then they said you can't you can't take his life to God was still before you start it here in this to your personal doctrine that we point out where this book is in the Bible. It's in the Old Testament, the Hebrew Scriptures water was present because things are changed. God hasn't changed but we have a mediator.

Job had a mediator, but he had not worn the veil to the holy publisher, Job is wrong and what he said let's keep reading verse 13 he has removed my brothers far from me and my acquaintances are completely estranged family, my relatives have failed in my close friends of forgotten may what was to over there for us not to joke those who do only my house and my maidservants, count me as a stranger. I am an alien in their sight.

I call my servant, but he gives no answer.

I beg him with my mouth breath is offensive to my wife and I am repulsive to the children of my own body. Even young children despise me around the house and they speak against me. All my close friends abhor me, and those whom I love this turned against the bone clings to my skin into my flashlight escaped by the skin of my teeth into their lives were we get that phrase the book of Job's is one of the oldest books in the Bible verse 21, have pity on me, have pity on me, O you my friends for the hand of God has struck me because of the lack of information he's drawing the wrong conclusion. Aren't you glad none of us is ever done that me asking, and that this is a great way to minister and witness to an atheist or an agnostic, but what percentage of the world's knowledge. Do you see that you have in your brain. You think you have 1% of all the knowledge of the to the University think you have to present the 5% I would stop at 5%. Anybody that's thinks they're over 5% is probably not in touch with reality but yet 5% of the world's knowledge to people are willing to gamble on 95% of what they don't know you can't really be an atheist. You can't say there's no God, because in the 95% of what you do not know God could exist. The only rational way that anybody could ever say that there is no God is for them to be God or just rationally ridiculous write him a letter just doesn't work.

Verse 22. Why do you persecute me as God guys and are not satisfied with my flash… Job's gonna winding but is also, pregnant look what he says in verse 20 30 that my words were written all that they were inscribed in a book.

I think got answered out on the day were engraved on a rock with an iron pin and lead, forever.did better net and here is one of the diamonds and organ to read through these two chapters and come back to this book. Verse 25. In the midst of it all is going on in his two friends, just noting verbally lose his crops. The animals and livestock time buildings collapse in children and yet verse 25 for I know that my Redeemer lives and he shall stand at last on the earth.

You know, your Redeemer lives. You know that Jesus is alive, have been over there looking to do much act is not there is matter fact is interesting. When they came into the gym. There's a Jewish tradition that we borrowed to the state that if you put your napkin and you fold it on the table that manger coming back.

It's interesting that when they looked at the burial costs it's note in the Scriptures that it was folded me just coming back and see that what that's what makes Jesus different is what makes Christianity different you say also to things we got all these guys in the Middle East that are take messiahs given a false gospel to people that if they kill people to gain entrance and that seek to kill others that descending to the lowest level of what a person can do to my home and takes people to the lowest level and then Jesus says love your enemies, he goes to the other extreme consist do the best you can to the enemies effect.

You know what you say. The bone some food if you go to the tumor.

Confucius you want to see the bones of Confucius, you go to the tomb of Jesus. 26. Nothing is not daring to reassess. He said he was only going to be dead three days and that's what happened should see and be in the grave three days. That was a busy three days of your read were seven people freezing all sorts of slick verse 26 and after my skin is destroyed this on no that in my flash pass ELC God, whom I shall see for myself and my silver whole do not another and how my heart yearns within me if you should say how shall we persecute him since the root of the matters found in me, be afraid of the sword for yourselves for wrath brings the punishment of the sword that you may know there is a judgment and so for the name assigned answered and said, therefore my anxious thoughts make the answer because of the tomorrow within me. I have heard the rebuke that reproaches me in the spirit of my understanding causes me to answer. Do you not know this is old since man was placed on earth with the triumphing of the wicked is short and the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment, though his haughtiness mounts up to the heavens and its head reaches to the clouds, yet he will perish forever like his own refuse those who have seen the most say where is he. He will fly away like a dream and not be found, yet he will be chased away like provision of the night. The that's all I will see them no more nor will his place to hold him anymore.

His children shall seek the favorable poor midseason jewelry store as well is bones are full of youthful vigor, but it will wind down with him in the dust.

The evil is sweetness, mouth, and he hides it under his tong. The lease bears it does not forsake it still keeps in his mouth get his food in the stomach turned sour. It becomes cobra venom within them.

He swallows down riches and vomits them up again, and God cast them out of his belly. He will suck the poison of cobras as is his friend don't ever be the scanner friend. It's interesting on to every man an answer. People can call him and ask different questions and is very interesting the questions that come up in a come back and refer to the question came up in just a second. Gorski. He will suck the poison of cobras. If you're taking notes to jot down this under things you don't want to hear your friends that the Viper style will slay him he will not see the streams the rivers flow one with honey and cream. He will restore that for which he labored and will not swallow it down and from the proceeds of business. He will get no enjoyment, for he has oppressed and forsaken the poor. He is violently seized the house, which he did not bill because he knows no quietness in his heart he will not save anything he desires. Nothing is left for him to eat. Therefore, his well-being will not last, and the self-sufficiency he will be in distress brand of misery will come against him when he is about to fill the stomach God will cast on them.

The fury of his wrath. And it will rain it on him while he is eating he will flee from the iron weapon upon the will piercing through it is strong and comes out of his body. Yes, the glittering point comes out of the skull tears come upon them. Total darkness is reserved for his treasures and end fan fire will consume them at shall go ill with him who is left in his tent heavens will reveals iniquity in the earth will rise up against him. The increase of his house, will depart in his goods will flow away in the day of his wrath H system, not the wrath of God. This is the portion before God for a wicked man. The heritage appointment to them by not when these guys are talking some of the things they say, you know that if you're a wicked person. This will happen or that will be the end result of being wicked their truths, but they don't apply to Joe who is a good man, a righteous man, and in chapter 1, it only says that but it records for us that God said that it's important that we understand God looks at Job and says you're a good man. You're a righteous man may affect was go back to chapter 1, just maybe, some rear maybe not collected chapter 1 verse eight then the Lord said to Satan, have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil that's part of being a believer in price and what is good, pushing away what's bad. God has given us the power and the ability to do that to exercise our will in those areas refers not to Satan answered the Lord and said, does Job fear God for nothing. Have you not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side blessed the work of his hands and his possessions have increased in the land he says. But now, stretch out your hand touch. Ali has naturally curse you to your face. That's not what Job did Job never curse God. He may have some wacky things he thought. But it's a curse of God even knows life curse curse God's interesting, the devil left her alive and part of his plan man cannot lose the some of you that the enemy will use a spouse. But notice, God had a hedge around him. This is the Old Testament Cipro Scripture these people are central vertical fair in the Hebrew atonement in the English there. Since we have heard and says to that arrangement to that agreement. Job as he embraced what is good and pushed away what is bad and he gave all she recognize the Lord if you're really read between wanting help the poor. He was doing all these good things, and God had a hedge about him you know is good known as males. God has a hedge around person said in your city. He has a hedge around you, you know, it's also let's go back to 1920 with those chapter looking at this were answer one of his big questions.

One, the big questions in life, as if God is such a loving God. Why does he calls sin and suffering or live sin and suffering in the world of research are good. Not a loving God. There's different ways of asking this question, but is not really the right question the right question would be if God is such a loving God. Why does he allow sin and suffering.

In the answer is a life lesson God allows sin and suffering on this planet because he allows us the confidence offer to be on this planet toward God allow so suffering on this planet because it allows mankind who calls in sin and suffering. To be on the planet. The world was hunky-dory until God put out an enabler thing when they were we so got out in that transaction we handed the title deed of earth to the enemy. That's how leader in the New Testament the enemy says to Jesus, giving the whole world. If you worship me. Jesus didn't say the world is not yours to give Scott the principality of air. If you're an unbeliever. He has open access to you to be mad at me, that's just what that's what the book says there is a cure. If you've got Jesus, the awesome thing is he didn't even get to ask if you're a believer. He knows the answer is no and I didn't know my son died for them. You have access anymore. A man good stuff that he was ticketed and in chapter 19 at Job verse six he says no then that God has wronged me in a surrounded me with his net strong in the new living translation limiter read these first six verses to you. Job 19.

Since then, Joe showed again how long will you torture me. How long will you try to crush me with your words you've Artie insulted me 10 times you should be ashamed of treating me so badly. Even if I assume that is my concern not yours.

You think you better and I am using my humiliation as evidence of my sin but it is God who was wrong to me, capturing the NS net now it's both.

Life lesson and a Bible study trip Job keeps repeating bad theology. Okay Job keeps repeating bad theology.

He said the Lord gives and the word is taken my things away is wrong. Authority given those things and the enemy we plainly see, was the one that took things from them. So here's the life lesson.

The reality is that when Job was blaming God. God protected Joe and God had a hedge of protection around you know it was the enemy who was attacking Joe rose again. The reality is that while Job was blaming God. God protected Job and God had a hedge of protection around Job, it was the enemy who was attacking Joe, you provided you wanted to let me be in the car crash floor month my legs got hurt. You're supposed died in that crash Angel push other car at the last instant when things happen again. It can always be worse. It could always be work. We never know what God is protecting us from I believe when we get attacked. The traffic jam. Sometimes I firmly believe that God is protecting us from an accident.

It's up in front of us the list. Remember we talked about this second Timothy three 1670.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness of the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. So the word the Bible helps us it's a solid compass if you will, helps us answer what's right, what's not right to marry fact initially a neat little thing.

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God is profitable for doctrine, that's what's right, for reproof. That's what's not right for correction to get right in the instruction in righteousness to stay right to treasure what's right, what's not right.

How to get right now to stay right, but not incidentally earlier than this versus pulses you know the Bible you know the Bible.

Timothy remember the things been tall and then in another place in second Timothy 15 pulses of Tennessee. When I called remembrance of genuine faith that is in you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice, and I am persuaded, it is and you also an interesting it was his grandmother and his mother that impacted Timothy Ray's government and in ministry must understand something the Bible talks about stuff that it doesn't condone or agree with it may historically report murder is not approving of that murder.

It's instructing us by Thursday Bible study to the Bowery for so many events that people did that the Bible is not condoning or approving out one of them is David's marriage is always wise in Solomon's wives got doesn't approve that they did it in both of them paid a price for it to we see from the book of Job in the Old Testament the enemy had to come to God to God.

I'd like to mess with this person and God with you.
