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 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 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 chapters 19 and 20.
Now here's Pastor David and the new living translation. Monitoring these first six verses to Job 19 assistant Joe showed again how long will you torturing how long will you try to crush me with your words regarding insulted me two 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 is evidence of my sin but it is God who was wrong to me, capturing VNS and now it's both a life lesson and about the study to Job keeps repeating bad theology. He said the Lord is in the word is taken my things away is wrong already given those things and the enemy we plainly see, was the limit 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.
We never know God is protecting us from when leaving a traffic jam. Sometimes God is protecting us from an accident. It's up in front of us. Second Timothy 316, 17 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 and instruction in righteousness to stay right to treasure what's right or it's not right. How to get right now to stay right a man say all scripture, so that includes a look at Job here by Thursday Bible study to the boundary for so many events of people did that the Bible is not condoning or approving out David's marriages and Solomon's wives. They did it in both of them paid a price for it to cut doesn't approve that the Old Testament, the enemy had to come to God to God. I'd like to mess with this person and U say no or he would say a little bit, never, never let the enemy bear down on any belief. The solution appears lifeless in the Old Testament the enemy had to ask permission to do anything to a believer.
The Old Testament enemy had asked permission to do anything to believer next lifeless. It's interesting in the New Testament under new covenant. The enemy doesn't get even asked to do anything sitting in the New Testament under the new covenant. The enemy doesn't get even asked to do anything a man praise God for saying Amen Kiki you gotta get this clear game as some of you think God has done things to you that he didn't do too and you should be managing enemy if you will be mad at somebody is just an act of God's interesting that a government that will not recognize God will call something bad happens.
I acted to understand something, these two friends except what you missed this and it's like torture to me to read this slamming (over and over. And here's the thing in this is another several life lessons tonight, but there's a lot of important stuff from these two chapters is next lifeless. We been given the ministry of reconciliation are joining two separate people together reconciling. We've been given the ministry of reconciliation that forces to be about.
We don't have the ministry of condemnation a man we got reconciliation.
God loves you.
He came near the top for you so that you could be forgiven if you turned him away from running your own life and away from sin he stay here.
Love is a million steps between you and God got 30, taking 999,999 and he leaves the last one up to you and if you are an unbeliever in these days recognize first so you will go through the seven year tribulation assembly or in the enemy has full access to, and yet you're still canceling with 95% of what you don't know that it's Romans 511 says and not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through, we've now received the reconciliation word and the new living translation is now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us with a list friends of God. Jesus dying for us access to forgiveness has made us friends of God, Prince of God say that out loud friends of God. That's what Jesus did.
Romans five announces much more than having now been justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Job in here speaks of God's wrath for and against. In chapter 19 verse 11.
He says he's also kindled his wrath against me know he hasn't. And God will never exercise his wrath against a believer because he's already poured out his wrath on Jesus in her place, and that includes the tribulation the tribulation is to punish unbelievers and the wicked and did for the Jewish people back to God. Indeed Iraq from loose fence sitters `but it's not for us versus alliance for God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
First Thessalonians 110 and wait for his son from heaven, and the race from the dead, even Jesus who delivers us from the wrath to come is interesting since Jesus will from the wrath to come. The Jewish people understood what Balzac complete that we were all going to miss out on the seven year tribulation.
We know that that's first Thessalonians. We have a second test limits and nowhere in second Thessalonians. This policy only 1/2 a bunch of questions about how worse shape and rather how Jesus is giving us our asthma.
What that coming together drawing together in Gary ask no questions once they understood what ties back in this Judaica to let let me simplify for you. There's a picture Jesus coming forward with the bride of Christ. That's the church. Okay with us and with the Jewish people. Marriage and wedding is a very sacred time. Can you imagine Jesus is okay I love you. You're the bride of Christ, and I'm gonna put you in to the worst. How long nurse that it's ever known where my dad is going to pour out all his wrath on you will see in seven years after the honeymoon EV.makes sense in the natural and human do it in the British are God window at the my brother Christ go into the wrath and I could sit here and talk about how we know it's a pre-tribulation rapture. There's a new book with 271 pages of reasons why the Bible points out that the preacher relation and I'll give you little pieces of the book but it's really conclusive that a call yesterday called & we need to you is a pastor so there's no such thing as rapture and the next thing that's common is people are gonna say there's no such thing as the second coming either to affect their external SATA in first Thessalonians chapter 4 verse 16 it talks about these things and it describes them, for the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel with the trumpet of God and the dead in Christ will rise first. And here describes the coming together and we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord hallelujah in this process be encouraged to encourage each other when you think about these things that what's that got to pull you out and not have the wrath poured on you.
Praise God not to go on several verses but you a spoke of the wrath of God being poured on him he was wrong, and people who think the wrath is going to report on them in the tribulation. If there were a believer.
Toronto verse 17 assessment of progress is offensive to my wife from repulsive to the children of my own body getting it's hard when a couple as a child is very hard. We've been involved with good bitter. The tragedy here funerals for three-year-old, a five-year-old, a seven-year-old shoe for three people, family GA help the families of fathers killed the mother and the seven-year-old insane. It went down the street and hung himself.
We minister to that family and it's time for you and a lot of times those folks don't stay with us even if they were here before because sometimes remind him, because we reached out in the middle of the tragedy will remind them of the tragic makes up little more difficult to combat. Then again, some people stay in the middle.
If it works or in because of the power of God.
We can years ago I went down to leaders conference in Florida, Merritt Island was also the chair and music down there so they were kind enough to put some of us and so they found a family that insistently could stay there.
So me another now that I knew stayed with them. So the first night were talking to Jesus say we need to get together and talk like whole either inverted on some wrong or going over the rules of the house where you can hear this from somebody else so I got to tell you she's a few months ago we were cheered and man came in to rob us and had nice and staffed both of us repeatedly, and we covered hospital, but while we were in the hospital. We were made aware that our daughter had apparently pulled it out to the house.
During this and that had attacked her and she did not survive and she is a young person she actually helped out salmon church to dismiss precious ladies telling me this. This is the house had been just months before, and he never caught the guy like that of 48 hours on it and all sorts of stuff and asked the obvious question is what quantity does move she said God chose me to go through the straw on the hot room from print is ever here in a moment like that God will give you the strengths God will give you the comfort you. It's awesome.
We go to the conference Tremont on course also teach a stalker before he's been through some things and and John is his daughter just been killed in a car wreck in the same intersection. His wife had been killed when John did the funeral when he did the funeral for his daughter. He was given her to Jesus is like a marriage. It's hard to describe but that it just happened and I sat there and watched as this couple begin to talk to John and they pray and they wandered off and they were gone for a few hours and in Pastor Chuck remarked.
He said you know you can wonder about how God allowed these things you can be amazed at how I take somebody from Oregon suffered a loss together with somebody in Florida that suffers a loss so they can comfort each other. That is the goodness of God. Amen. Pray for people you know who have kids the best way to hard my brother had two daughters. One died when she was 18 months tailored not when she was 23.
They got divorced and he's remarried but it's hard because of the blame game and here's the interesting thing in this life lesson in the midst of Job's pain, God is using Joe more than he could ever imagine. Here we are, three, 4000 years later, maybe 3500 might be closer, and while reading this book bold that my words were written all that they were inscribed in a book in the midst of Job's pain.
God is usually yeah we never know how God is useless when were in pay but I can guarantee somebody watch some of these learning and in that verse. My Redeemer lives, your Redeemer lives. Pastor David will be back in less than one minute. As he continues teaching in the book of Job.

There's a reason. When we wear crosses. Jesus is not own it because Jesus is not still on the cross is God's.
My Redeemer lives and he shall stand at last on the earth.
Hebrews 725 says this wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come in the God I hand seeing that he ever lives to make intercession for ever lives to make intercession for tonight he is at the throne room of God to make intercession for us.
What is were friends of God's only sin. God says you're forgiven. The father there forgiven them interceding on their behalf. And it's a legal thing. We cannot be charged or punished twice for the same current wish to incorporate guilty it's a life sentence. Jesus comes up and said you know what I'll do that within three that's what he did all the time set them pray no greater love to gain don't blame God for something the enemy has done in your life, and he probably has done things in your life that you're blaming God for the next life lesson as you have been given supernatural spiritual power and authority you have been given supernatural spiritual power and authority. Luke 1017 system.
The 70 returned with joy so important.
Even the demons are subject to our center in your name and he said to them, I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven to hold back give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice that your names are written in heaven praise God.
If you know Jesus, your name is written have something to rejoice over to less understand you are a spirit.
You have a soul and you live in a body before you were saved. If you've asked God to forgive you your spirit was regenerated, but when you got saved you were born again and began a special relationship with God. Your sins didn't go unpunished.
Jesus suffered for your sins means it's done the punishments over there's no more punishment you have to earn anything from God because he's done all that we love. Amen we follow him and the new living translation at Hebrews 725 therefore he is able once and for ever to save those who come to God through him. He lives for ever to intercede with God on their behalf man, it's good, praise God, you have supernatural power. You are spirit. You have a soul you live in a body your soul your spirit should exercise control over your soul and body.
Unfortunately, a lot of times are body exercises authority over our shoulder spiritist backwards is not the way supposed to work and get electric we listen everything about he says to stick Debbie back. We will listen everything the Holy Spirit sets when we were saved.
Our spirit was born again we want to put our spirit in charge of you and make good decisions and now you know Jesus, you have the ability and the authority to do just that you've actually got ability and authority over these bad spiritual powers the enemy and demons you have authority over them. Ephesians 427 says don't give place to the devil. Ephesians 60… Finally, my brother, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might.
Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
James 47 therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you and say sit and have conversation with him… And see what you name spirit tell you to do that. It says submit to God knows the first thing that he submit to God submit to God, submit to his word. Submit whatever leadership God has placed in your life. We had a tent but that's the flash flash does want to submit to leadership that we grow as we do's interest in James 470 continues on aces therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you clean your hand, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double minded begin known with any changes. Pretty intense but read it so it's intense because of who James is writing to is actually writing to the Jewish people look at me with that tone of voice.
It's in the Bible may set up wordlessly. It's in James one once is James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ to the 12 tribes which are scattered greeters to 12 112 truck 12 front of Israel and definitely enough in James 11 new living translation is this letters from Ginger slave of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ. I am writing to you the 12 tribes of preplanning five member so we can benefit from reading James because all Scripture that would benefit from.
Scott and let's remember. In Job 42, seven were coming down to a closer James 42 seven in chapter 42 anything I would encourage God had read the whole book of Job, so that you know how it ends and go back and study it because here's the thing. Job 42. The last chapter. It says, and so it was after the Lord spoken these words to Job that the Lord said to Eliphaz at timberline Mayor half is aroused against you and your two friends for you have not spoken of me what is right is my servant Joe Vyas gave Joe to mercy because what all happened, but he came down hard on his friend what they were misrepresenting God misrepresent God is God has forgiven somebody don't call that which he is called clean and unclean. It's a game that your spirit receives the word do things that will plant good seats. Remember Galatians 5 and six plant good seeds. Those who plant of the Spirit will reap of the spirit in your spirit exercises control over your soul and your body. Speak to your soul that may afflict somebody out, but the psalmist is that in Psalm 1032 bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits. Actually, it's a great group as it goes on to bless the Lord all my soul and forget not all his benefits and forgives all your iniquities who heals all your diseases. To use your life and destruction of crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies who satisfies your mounds of good things. So your use is renewed like the Eagles. Praise God that's in the Old Testament right there. It's the goodness of God leads us to repentance and I want to share closing for such a challenge.
Philippians chapter 4 verse eight God has blessed us forgiven some plaster kids and even better to us and we been to ourselves as some of you may have had challenges and even attacks in your thinking it was the Lord and it wasn't yet to wipe the windshield because you think that it was God who did that you're afraid he might do that again.
The fears got ago. Philippians 4 a is this. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, or if there's any virtue or if there is anything praiseworthy. Meditate on these things.
Meditation, incidentally, is biblical and New Age people stole from us. We had it first it was in the Bible 3000 years ago.
Meditate on the good things I want things, whatever things are true. No, just pure lonely good report when not sure what that is in my life. If you're not sure what that is that I can tell you one thing, it is every time Jesus Jesus is true and noble when Justin pure and lovely and of a good report to think about Jesus and his goodness. Think about the fact that your name is written in the Lamb's book of life was go to prayer Lord, we invite your Holy Spirit into this place and ask you God to do work. Lord we open our hearts, we open our minds to you there's anybody here and it's not been filled with the spirit you've never asked God to fill you with the spirit you need a fresh feeling of the Holy Spirit and ask you to come on placenta elders, the owners begin to pray for those people pray that God would fill them with the Holy Spirit, God said that if you ask for bread, he will give you a stone. How much more with the heavenly father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask for him to.
You need to ask for the Holy Spirit to fill you and also from time to time you need asking again to fill you because the Bible says be filled with the spirit be constantly filled with the spirit, I want to be filled with spirit, it's been too long since been filled with despair and there's of power and agreeing with fire if you need prayer for physical healing component developed says that if there's any sick among you bring out the elders anoint them with oil and pray for the sick so that God will heal him we not just praying for people rehearsing. What's wrong with praying that God would do the miraculous healing. We believe God's work receives the formal seed.
Again, you may be a testimony of God's miraculous healing. You need healing come forward if you are unable physically to come toward you insulated come to you unless you help us to stay in prayer Lord, we thank you for what you're doing right now you're drawing us closer to you. Your filling people of the Holy Spirit in Winona.
Pray for anybody in here the you did something that the enemy dead. Maybe it was a betrayal for a friend some tragic accident and God will protect you far more than what you ever go through you been listening to Pastor David McGee on cross the bridge weekend addition tuning again next Saturday afternoon at 430 Eastern at 130 Pacific time as Pastor David continues teaching lessons from the life of Job. On most radio stations friends. God loves you and wants you to experience his peace, forgiveness, and life. The Bible says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. How do you receive this gift of everlasting life from God first acknowledged you were a sinner in need of forgiveness believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God, and died for you on the cross, taking your sin upon himself to provide forgiveness for you, then ask for him to enter your heart and life. Turning away from your sins is your own selfish desires and then open your heart to follow God's plan for your life. You can start your new life by praying something like this from your heart. Dear Jesus, I believe that you died for me that I could be forgiven. I believe you are resurrected that I could have a new life Lord, I have done wrong things and I'm sorry. Please forgive me for all of those things and please give me the power to live for you. The rest of my life in Jesus name, amen.
