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 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 Joe 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 29 and 30 now here's Pastor David. Chapter 29 a Job version 1 says Job further continues his discourse and said all that our words in the months passed, as in the days when God watched over me when his lamp shone upon my head and when Brian Slater walks in darkness, just as I was in the days of my problem. When the friendly counsel of God was over my tent when the Almighty was yet with me when my children were around me. When my steps were bayed with cream and the rock poured out rivers of oil for me and I went out to the gate of the city. When I took my seat in the open square, and the young man saw me and his in each arose and stood the princes refrain from talking and put their hand on their mouth, the voice of nobles was hushed the tongue stuck to the roof of their mouth when they hear her then it blessed me when the I saw that it approved me because I delivered the poor and cried out, the fatherless, and the one who had no helper verse 13 the blessing of the perishing man came upon me and I caused the widow's heart to sing for joy. I put all righteousness and enclose me, my justice was like a robe and a turban. I was eyes to the blind, and his feet to the lame was a father to the poor and searched out the case that I did not know I broke the things of the wicked and plucked the victim from his teeth and then I said, I shall die in my nest and multiply my days as the sand my route spread out to the waters and the due lives all night on my branch my glorious fresh within me and my bow is renewed in my hand. Verse 21 minute and listen to me and waited and kept silence for my counsel after my words they did not speak again in my speech settled on them, as do they waited for me as for the rain and they open their mouth monitors for the spring rain, looked at them they did not believe it in the light of my countenance. They did not cast down. I chose a way for them set as chief sought drought is a key in the Army is one who comforts mourners to Job is recalling good days and good times which is a good thing to do. The Bible encourages us to think about good things impure things and true things that fix our thoughts… Chapter 30 verse one but now they market me men younger than I whose fathers are disdained with the dogs of my flock.

Indeed, what profit is the strength of their hands to make their vigorous parish.

They are gone from long-standing bullying late to the world and its desolate waste plucked mallow by the bushes and broom trade routes for the food that's is the food of the very very poor.

They were driven out from among men, they shouted down is at a thief and don't live in the clefts of the valleys of the rocks are in caves or holes of the earth and the rocks among the bushes.

They Brady under the nettles thing nestled they were sons of fools, just as a vile man. They were scourged from the land and now I am there talking.

So yes I am, thereby work, they are poor me.

They keep far for me. They do not hesitate to spit in my face because he's loose my bowstring and afflicted me. They have cut off restraint before me at my right hand.

The rabble-rousers push away my feet and they raise against me their ways of destruction.

They break up my path.

They provoke my calamity. They have no helper.

They come as broad breakers under the rule in this storm. They roll along. So all these people who thought well of Joe before thinking really poorly of him now, but the real question is does that tell us anything about Joe. No other than that he had a lot.

Now he doesn't doesn't reveal anything about people. Yeah, they respected him just because he had money. He's the same guy same person may be a little bit smarter, less definitely poorer for the moment, but they treated him that verse 15 terrors returned upon me. They pursue my honor as the wind and my prosperity is passed like a clown and now my soul was poured out because of my plight. The days of affliction take hold of me my bones appears to me at night and bundling payments take the rest but great source of my Garmin is disfigured it balance me about is the color of my coat is cast me into the buyer not become like dust and ashes cut crowd to you but you do not answer me. I stand up and you regard me, but you've become cruel to me with the strength of your hand you oppose me. He's talking to God.

You lift me up to the wind and calls me to ride and it used for my success. For I know that you will bring me to death to the house appointed for all living surely he would not stretch out his hand against a heap of ruins if they cried out when he destroyed have not wept for him was in trouble is not muscle grieved for the poor, but when I look for good, evil came to me when I waited for light and darkness.

My heart is in turmoil and cannot rest days of affliction confront me. I go about morning but not the side stand up in the assembly and cry out for help. I am the brother of jackals and a companion of ostriches. My skin grows black falls from me.

My bones burn this fever. My heart stirring the morning in my flute to the voice of those who weep and gasket when did Satan attack Joe or when was Satan attacking Job. He still lives in this chapter, Job is wrong and part of life. Wrong is is being blinded by the enemy and explain men God for something the enemy did. And through these things at the enemy throws adding he's trying to tell what God is speaking to set up for TIMES of trouble getting.

First of all, he's focused on his righteousness, and what's wrong with God. That's a big clue. Anytime you're thinking about all the good things that you've done for God in all the times that he's let you down. That is satanic self-pity and it's not good again you anything it's going to steal your peace. What you do when something is wrong. There is earth and then there's heaven. This is not heaven. Don't expect things to go perfectly.

I may not have expectations walking, actually, but things are going to happen and as a matter fact in our case with what were doing were in a battle so the battle we think all we had to skirmish in this relationship discuss at this part of this lease at this and the voters of the sums wrong. No, if there wasn't about something would be room here so I flush. Don't assume something is wrong because there's a battle of battle means things are going well and that God is at work doing some enemy doesn't like a man, so don't don't assume something is wrong because it is a battle of battle means things are going well that God is at work doing something he doesn't like me rigid subversive Matthew 18 chapter 18 verse 18. This is important for us to understand because enemy he's out running around with his minions in the unbeliever shortly. I say to you, this is Jesus, the red letters is usually a city. Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, or in the spiritual and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven, or the spiritual realm so viewed by the enemy. In Jesus name. He found these bound in the spiritual.

That's what this is saying put this together with some other Scripture offenses against the city that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything if two of you agree on anything. What do we know the enemy don't happen or they don't want to us to agree on anything. Why, because when we agree' that look what happened for two or three are gathered in my name, I am there in the midst of so the entity doesn't want you to gather and with other believe that he's not going to outright say that he's losing but if it's too loud it's too cold. It's a long distance to Florence to close its…… And none of that should and understand the enemy does not want you to hear the message and he'll do anything to get you away from the word in Daniel, we see that the angel was coming with a message today and got the battle for three weeks. Daniel chapter 10 verse 12 then he said to me, do not fear Daniel from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humble yourself before God. Your words were heard when you prayed, you were hurt and outcome because of your because of your prayers but the friends of the kingdom of Persia.

That's not the earthly prints is going to have some things are cyclical quizzes but the Prince, the king of Persia withstood me 21 days of the whole Michael one of the chief princes Michael on the chief princes, what of the kingdom of heaven. Michael the Archangel, but the prince of the king of Persia was to be 21 days. Bold Michael when the chief princes, came to help me Fred been there left little to Keene's plural of Persia that have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter-day for the vision refers to the many days yet to come to hear the angels come in with this important message from Daniel battle for three weeks and Daniel thinking got barge into my prayer got hurt and for the first time since Monday with the message and then there's this bad what it takes three weeks will I don't know who was praying.

Our prayers are powerful Psalm 91.

We have angels that we are in charge of basically and if you don't tell them what to do either that unemployed angels got attacked with angels.

My kids got protected with angels my Freddy according to the word of God. Now Matthew 13 the parable of the sewer reminds us of this battle is Matthew 1318 therefore hear the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand that, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is you, you received the seed by the wayside that he received acetyl study places. This is hears the word and immediately with joy. It has no root in himself but only endures only for a while.

For when tribulation or persecution arises because the word immediately stumbles, we seen it sad. It's heartbreaking. Verse 22 now you received the seed among the thorns is he you hears the word and cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful, but he who received seed on the good ground is he who hears the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and produces some a hundredfold, some 60, in some 30 praying God to spiritually reproduce and that they need help to reproduce in the enemy is. After that, see he doesn't want that seed sown in your life. And then he doesn't want us so when the seed all around the world. Globally, that we so I don't want to go and forth so he wants to weaken the body until we got a point where everything we can't do cross a bridge and tomorrow we can't do that. Household can't support missionaries.

That's what the enemy was to do next week and we so the word go forth.

Pastor David will be back in less than one minute. As he continues teaching in the book of Job. A great way to start out each day is with a practical email devotional every morning from Pastor David visit cross the to start receiving yours for free.

If you have a cell phone. You can also text the word encourage 294253 that's 94253 to receive a short encouraging text from us each day, and now back to the teaching hears life. The enemy does not want to see the word of God. The message of God. One fourth the word of God. The message of God goes forth from this fellowship around the world.

Constant demand so I might get upset Sunday here last week about two weeks ago. I'm telling nobody is ever going to say good I was listening to the devil and he was telling me that I needed to come mess with you and disturb you because in a few moments you about the reverse is really going to help you. And so I got distracted for the next few hours. Help me that's not God or listen to that's not God. Romans 1311 says this and do this, knowing the time that it now is time to awake out of sleep for now. Our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent the day is at hand. Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness. Let us put on the armor light. Let us walk properly as in the day, not revelry and drunkenness, not lewdness and lust on strife and envy, but put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill that splash.

The new living translation… This is all the more urgent for you know how late it is. Time is running out. Wake up for salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is almost gone home the day of salvation will soon be here to remove your dark deeds like dirty clothes and put on the shining armor of right living, because we belong to the day we must live decent life policy don't participate in the darkness of all parties and drunkenness during sexual promiscuity or immoral living ring quarreling and jealousy instead close yourself with the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ and don't let yourself think about ways to indulge your evil desires. Ephesians 425 says, therefore, putting away lying, let each of you speak truth with his neighbor for your members of one another. The angry and do not sin, not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil you couldn't give place of the devil. Paul would not tell you not to give place to the devil to the fact he said don't do it means you can't don't do it. Let him who still still no longer, but rather letting labor, working with this and what is good that he may have something to give him who has me let no corrupt word proceed now of your mouth that is so confusing mistreating. Let corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, it may impart grace to the hearers and do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, humor, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you that last verse and be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you in the new living translation says get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words and slander as well as all types of evil behavior.

Verse 32. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God to Christ has forgiven you get just come over Ephesians chapter 6 verse 10. Finally, my brother, be strong in the Lord is my put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood against the person you're talking to the person you're having trouble with. That's not who the real issue is with whose with what tells us we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places, that's for things for classification. Big great studies. We don't have time but put some sod working there to fail. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand in first John chapter 3 verse 10 these verses right here so help you to figure out where two people are coming from. If you're trying to figure out I was in this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest is that you can figure out which which whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother. You got to people. One is trash talking the other in your Jenna figure out if it's true, you don't have to worry about anymore because this was wrong with that. These verses here is not only wrong, he's of the devil or she's of the devil to pet owners yet, but that's that's how you figure out if somebody's Dog and somebody out that's not God. If somebody wants to speak correction. There's certain ways and processes that we have those in place but since for this is the message that you've heard from the beginning that we should love one another, not as Cain who was of the wicked one and murdered his brother.

And why did he murder him because his works were evil and his brother's righteous. He got mad about lately give an offering.

Go back and read it. Do not marvel my brother in the world hates you.

We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in James 417 says that God resists the devil will flee from you. And remember, Matthew 1818, says that whatever you bind is bound, you have authority as a believer to find things not in your name in his name in the name of Jesus and discernment. When people are doing certain things saying certain things look was a Scriptures was Mike not walking in righteousness somebody's not love the brother and not love in the body of Christ.

It doesn't take much discernment to figure out what was wrong. In first John 44. You are of God, little children, and have overcome them because he who is in you is the Holy Spirit is greater than he who is in the world. Here's the close of the Hebrews chapter 10 verse 23. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful and let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, the getting together as the manner of some, but exhorting one another, encouraging one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. So as the day approaches. You will be tempted more and more not to fellowship whatever's that you get closer to the day of the coming of the Lord be sure that you're in fellowship because you be tempted not to be and when you're in fellowship. Many things happen.

First of all, for two or three are gathered there's power in the unity and then we get together we encourage one another.

We challenge one another. Sometimes the friction runs off the flesh of one another, wiser heart hurt were not having you and you know Jacob worked seven years in he got Leah. He wanted Rachel, he got Leah and Edward another seven years for Rachel. He needed to have the time of Leah to get the bride Rachel. When Jesus was at a wedding.

He turned the water to I should usually serve the best wine first that you have saved the best for last.

That's us.

He has saved the best for last, were not at the best part were in the middle part where the hard part. The best is yet to come in and here's the gay here's the thing. Here's a life lesson, we will carry the cross we will receive our current amen don't know that you keep hold on because of you endure the cross you receive the crown, but if you bail if you drop off so many times. The word says to those who would do work till the end to those who endure to those who persevere over and over.

God brought you here endure hold on follow God and love the brother in the system. This is the body of Christ must pray Lord, thank you for the work tonight. Thank you for your word. Your written word.

Thank you also for the Remo work that inspired word of God, thank you for tonight. Thank you for the things that we saying thank you for the things that you've cleared up where the enemy had blown cloud of confusion in this life here.thank you for your Holy Spirit blowing tonight 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.
