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 35 now here's Pastor David Lindley to the book of Job, chapter 35 one.
Moreover L you answered and said do you think this is right do you say my righteousness is more than God's for you say letting an really leading you. What profit shall I have more than is I send I will answer you and your companions with look to the heavens and see the clouds. They are higher than you if you sin. What you accomplished against or their transgressions are multiplied.
What do you do to him if you are righteous. What do you give him or what does he receive from your hand. Your wickedness affects a man such as you and your righteousness, a son of man is not because of the multitude of oppressions like a crown for help because the arm of the mighty, but no one says where is God my maker and gives songs in the night, who teaches us more than the beast of the earth and makes us wiser than the birds of heaven nearly cried out that he does not answer because of the pride is evil and truly God relentlessly at the top.
Nor will the Almighty regarding the you say you do not see him, yet justices before him, and you must wait for him now because he is not punished. In his anger not taking much notice of folly.
Therefore, Joe opens his mouth in vain. He multiplies words without knowledge's 42 chapters of the book of Job. I would encourage you to redo the rest of it to what happens when God himself begins to speak to Job in chapter 38 out of the world when and asked Joe, who is this who darkens counsel about words without knowledge God blesses more than he was blessed before, except this time he was blessed and he didn't have the fear he was walking in the fear got it dealt with that. Jeremiah 20 9/11 is for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope sooner peace future and hope Brenda Jesus, if you get word). The Jesus you mess up Brenda Jesus Jeremiah 2912 then you will call upon me and go and pray to me and I will listen to you. John 1427 peace I leave with you, my peace I give to you not as the world gives do I give to you the world gives and takes away Jesus doesn't do that. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Pastor had been reading the book of Revelation. I see all these bad things on first allowing read the book of Revelation.
If you notice in chapter 4, 1932 tracks of people to groups of people is what's going on down here with the horses a plague to the seals and all that stuff and enters a group worship in heaven for seven years. If you know Jesus you're in this group. I go around the throne and saying you are worthy, who has redeemed us in your blood who can sing that they just can't sing when I am in reading that is black only born-again Christians can say that some born-again Christians are at the time and have some other at the time.
We know from the book of Thessalonians that that didn't Christ arise and everybody else's allowance of some of the instructor. Guess what were all up there that when the rapture happens you know some places some church their attendance will even change they won't be missing anybody.
And at that point there was a roadway man when Scott rapture, they will realize a never been born again, God's word. The reasons were memorizing God's word as if I thought about how it really take our guns which probably legitimate concern, but what they think about us, that's in here and here they can take what if tomorrow the only Bible you had was what you had member John 2021 so Jesus said to this piece to listen to them. Jesus said this to the disciples, but it is applicable to that, he said. Peace to you as the father has sent me, so do I send you houses and you just his father sent Jesus. Jesus now sends us and he says peace shall follow. I sent you were descendents where wherever you are now a century. Go there with his intent. When you go to work on but Jesus, you're going in the name of Jesus you're building the kingdom of God. That's what your work is up about.
That's the spiritual meaning and work.
First of all, that it you're able to recognize and honor God with your first fruits financially provide for your family. You're able to bless other people but also provides an atmosphere for you to share your faith sowing work schools in place to help this goodness, tell about God offering his forgiveness. John 20 2122 Jesus said to them, you get peace to you as a father has sent me also send you.
And when he had said read on them and said to them, receive the Holy Spirit. You'll be thankful to know we don't have to do that people for them to receive the Holy Spirit when is America's only place that we lay hands on as they wish us and we lay hands on people noticed lay hands on people and God does sex stirs up gifts the bouncer. The Bible says that if there's any sick among you, let them come forward with the elders anointing with a holy hands and pray they will be healed. The audio is a picture in our spare 20 Dawson pray that God fills us with his Holy Spirit. Scriptures plainly teach that after salvation there is another experience of asking God to fill us in him filling us to overflowing, and then we receive the supernatural gifts that are in the Bible, and no supernatural gifts there super natural gifts of faith healing of prophecy left a prayer language and also an unknown language that somebody can speak as males could interpret that speaking to man on behalf of God.
We can look at first Quentin 14 on how those gifts are to be used when you read that chapter, you realize the gifts or misuse of said thing is Romans 317 we have shalom the Prince of peace. The seller shalom SAR sorry shalom the Prince of peace, but the world, the people that don't know Jesus.
Romans 317 in the way of peace they have not known.
Don't believe the lack of it only had more I'd be happy only had more things only had more money and more money to have more bills seems to be the way it works. All that is only an edited and all so-and-so has so much money in the Jaguar Lamborghini year one after they have doesn't satisfy anybody so I've been places where I have little or nothing and it's been places when God it just immensely blessed me I been leaders and without with God and have been with and without without God and even when I had everything, this will have to offer. When I wasn't walking with God. I was miserable and let me let you into losing all those heroes that you watch on VH wine, MTV, and all that stuff and I have a don't have peace because they don't have Jesus, don't entry them you have something I don't have that many of them said they will never have Romans 314 is now is full of cursing and bitterness that some believers don't let that be you doing cursing and bitterness come out of your mouth, and as far as our righteousness being better than God's. Isaiah 64 six is but we are all like an unclean thing in all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags. We all fade as a leaf, our iniquities, like the wind of taking us with our righteousness are like filthy rags. There's no good way to sailors that expressions like filthy rags in the Hebrew it's very obvious that is talking about accused menstrual loss that a woman had used during her time that our righteousness, not very impressive as it does not compare to God's righteousness. But here's the awesome thing first John chapter 1 verse a non-intent.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us said anything you speak not somebody else's sin. You can't do anything about that, but you can ask forgiveness for your sin and if so, you have no sent you deceive yourself.
If we confess our sins he is faithful and just to forgive us our sales and cleanse us from all unrighteousness is we confess our sent verse 10 is we say that we have not sent we make him a liar and his word is not in us to look at that.
There is the choice if you say you have no sin, irony, prayer, only to go forward earning as God for forgiveness on not only to go forward in prayer. If you see evidence in you deceive yourselves. The truth is not in you.
You make God a liar and his word is not in you or you confess your sins, and is faithful and just to forgive you of your sins and to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. Which do you want simpler layout right there will pastor you asked for forgiveness before and I turned around I did the same stinking thing sometimes that happens sometime you have to come back after forgiveness and power again.
Symptoms will do it again you come back, maybe do it again and you come back you can't you do it again and you come back again and maybe you have to come back again 500 times but on the 501st time you find freedom a deliverance key, keep government until you receive that a pastor I know he's done it for somebody else. I know you done wonderful things in your line think this person's life heard those testimonies. I'm just not sure I'm gonna really enjoy. Ephesians 3 and four Ephesians chapter 3 verse 20. Some of you really ought to jot this one down now to him H talk about God.
Now that he is not about your abilities to me to pray for forgiveness, but I'm afraid I'll follow you mine.
It's not about you. You pray for God to forgive you and maybe the Holy Spirit told you not to him is able to do not have these adjectives together exceedingly abundantly above all all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, that's amazing.
We can think of some pretty incredible thing some pretty incredible visions. And yet, whatever you can think I've got also do more than whatever you can envision God will still hold more than that to read these verses and Job and the new living translation, Job 35 nine through 16 people cry out when they're oppressed, the girl beneath the power of the mighty Almighty, mighty people, strong men, powerful men, people trying to control and manipulate 62 individuals own half of the wealth of the world. There haven't these little gatherings about what happens next in the world love to sit for a couple hours and talk about some of the stuff going on, the bigger look at that transpacific partnership and so the stuff that's going on some major people cry when they're oppressed the ground beneath the power of the mighty yet they don't ask where is God, my creator, the one who gives songs in the night. Where is the one who makes us smarter than the animals and wiser than the birds of the sky and when they cried out.
God does not answer because of their pride, but it is to say God doesn't listen to say the Almighty isn't concerned.
You say you can't see him but he will bring justice if you only way you say does not respond to sinners with anger and is not greatly concerned about wickedness, but you're talking nonsense.
Job spoken like a fool. 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 crossed the bridge.com 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 strong words usually need understand. It looks like things are happening and we call these time and time last days but let's be real clear it's not our entire. It's not our last days.
These are going to be the most glorious days that lead us into the awesome beautiful millennial reign of Christ are somehow justice and love joined together in God leads the world simply not there yet but that's coming to her in the middle.
Go love you get a little taste where you got a little taste of it during a time of worship is all man just over 2000 will taste to have but there's a lot more, so I/we need to realize that we are in the middle are really the early part of our internalize. So we should live for God and run to the city of refuge, a good analyst note you to be honest with yourself. Listen to this and be honest with yourself honest with God. In Proverbs chapter 6 there's a list of things that God hates is not a whole lot of things that God hates accountable both the relisted why does God tell us what he hates because he wants to be far from saying we say we love him we can't be an estimate of the stuff he hates chewing tobacco and Eaton cake top of the list. Right now, no, no, no, it goes much deeper than Proverbs 616 through 19th. There's these six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to him and Job's friends engaged in days or one hour looking at these, but be honest… Do inventory check shop, a proud look aligned to hands that shed innocent blood heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks live in one who sows discord among brethren running their being used as a spiritual gathering is one who sows discord among the spiritual group have you not answer out loud, but have you done the same as you engaged in these things if you in any way been filled with bitterness or unforgiveness or consume the point know what's wrong with other people or complaining.
There are not being thankful and when God comes a Holy Spirit is like that. This is this is what I don't like at all, which do not really okay well I did that, but it's time to stop and what we decide now is do we cling to our Messiah or do we cling to our sin, dropped the sin cling to the side. I like you may get confused and mess up may pick it up again put it down again when I pick it up again put it down again. Still life that we each need to decide to cling to our Messiah and not cling to our sin. If you been doing this a stop next time you get rated thousands of others always produces way… Stop. I don't know.
I can't stop eating right is a verse that Ephesians 320 now to him who is able night didn't take now to you who's able is Nottingham who's able is not your power to style how powerful is he blasted a rock out of a great in-state dead bird powerful and figure 320 now to him is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to power the workcenter first John, when we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in it. We confess our sins he's faithful and just to forgive us our sins and the Clintons us from all unrighteousness.
We say that we cannot simply make him a liar and his word is not in us. So now we choose and we need to serve, especially in these days, and the way we sharpen our discernment is reading the word, studying the word, going to Bible studies fellowship together serving giving being obedient because is your filled with the work you need to do the word Bible study has to leave the Bible doing everyone is busy encouraging people to serve to give to attend and when they had a rough patch don't bail don't run into anything about the churches. Some about you because we the body were sharing the gospel here and around the world.
So we get attacked.
I get it when I get attacked and you pray things happen. We are constantly outlasted scenes under attack in Noumea will be a lot of my stuff is at the beginning of this is where the Holy Spirit moving his people again say is what people are being disciples were people getting filled with the spirit. This is where people are getting healed, healed from stage IV cancer and back deformities all sorts of stop and we serve a big God, don't stop in the middle of the book of Revelation. That's not where the story ends or even the book of Job, but that's not where the story ends.
Jesus died and was crucified and buried.
But that's not where the story ends. You may be slipping and sliding and falling and her that's not where the story ends. You may be messing that's not what historians you may be hurt and pain sick. But that's not where the story ends. We should talk about having more friend that's our destination.
As we were going again between now and then there's probably going to be a couple rough days some rough patches, but that's not where we stop.
That's not where the story ends tonight. Once again we need to decide which group Brandon unbelievers who are freaked out say they have no sin, or the believers who were following the prince of peace CS we do have sin and we want you to wash God's washouts is whitest, the only people that remain in their sins as those who clung to it said no thank you I don't need forgiveness must be honest you can be honest here you can view radio if you said you want forgiveness doing favors right where you are just standup. If you have sinned, and you won't forgiveness just cannot hallelujah gadgets each person standing each person saying I need forgiveness from you. God and we need strength to not mess up godly don't want to do the things that you don't like and we actually don't want to do the things that you tell us you hate just take a moment and ask God to forgive you whatever is on your heart. Whatever God is calling out right now can hear the cheeses give thanks in the background, maybe even complainant had been thankful in the fivefold ministry God gives gifts to us to bless and we have been blessed and we will continue to be blessed, take a moment and go to God whatever is on your heart whenever sin has sustained you go to God and ask for forgiveness and again maybe. Maybe something you did.
Maybe something you didn't do.
You didn't do a good deed you didn't share the Lord you as you didn't give her you didn't serve in God invited you, whatever is go to God right now asking for forgiveness.
It's only through his blood, it's only by the cross.
Go to him now. Thank you, are thank you for your forgiveness. Thank you that your grace flow in and fallen like rain washouts clean is whitest. I think we ask for your spirit to fill us afresh so that we can file you more closely God and Lord. Now that we have been forgiven, we come boldly before the throne of grace, asking thinking the Bible says that when two or three agree in prayer.
Incredible things happen. Maybe you would just spend some time with the Lord maybe want to get more specific in your confession and you don't have to confess to a man in less godly injuries you got hurt and maybe there's needs to be restitution or something.
That's one thing but God is the one we sin against you with the things that happens when people come forward.
Honestly, this is the breaking of pride, because there's something in the past that we don't come down here. We want people to think there's something wrong. We don't want people to wonder about what's wrong with us all. That's product that's private. Let pride keep you from being in the last 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 acknowledge you are 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, that 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. My friend, if you pray that prayer today for the first time or are coming back to God. After wandering away. Please let us know.
