Welcome to cross the bridge with David McGee, David McGee is internationally recognized for his unique conversational verse by verse and chapter by chapter teaching through the word of God.
Hundreds of his teachings through many books of the Bible are now online across the bridge.com for you to listen to and study the Scriptures along with us before we get started with today's teaching pastor David wants to remind you of Hebrews 610 which says for God is not unjust. He will not forget how hard you have worked for him and how you've shown your love to him in caring for other believers as you still do remember we thank God for you every day. So now open your Bible to the book of Job and follow along for today's teaching to a lot of troubles these as children kill this crutch ruined his last few buildings destroyed as well just evaporate and it was a good man in the new lower in all this happen and there's three people that are supposed to be friends for not really.
And they judge them and they condemn and they slam them or make them social. These three guys and for the first 20 some chapters are some of the things they say are true, which is not the right time not the right place and they say some very judgment on harsh things in general is affected by because when you hear things are affected by so Kelly here comes the semantic from the get-go. Job is really is beginning to be deceived on each got a deal of self-deception and Ellie has to do with that first before you can pour the compassion and the love? It was read the chapter through will come back and comment chapter 36 to June 1 well in English. You also proceeded and said bear with me a little and I'll show you that there are yet words to speak on his behalf will fetch my knowledge from afar. I will ascribe righteousness to run your stereo stench my knowledge from afar.
I will ascribe righteousness to my maker for truly my words and outfalls one who is perfect in knowledge is with you the whole God is mighty but despises no one he is mighty in strength of understanding verse six.
He does not preserve the life of the wicked gives justice to the oppressed.
He does not withdraw his eyes from the righteous their own throne with King for he is seated them for effort and they are exalted and if they are found in fetters held in the court of the affliction that he tells them they're working. The transgressions that they have acted defiantly. He also opens their ear to instruction and commands that they turn from iniquity if they obey and serve him, they shall spend days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures, but if they do not obey. They shall perish by the sword, for they shall not die without knowledge to hypocrites and heart store up wrath. They do not cry for help with a constant. They die is in their life ends among the perverted persons he delivers the poor in their affliction, and opens their ears and oppression. Indeed, he would've brought you direct stress into a broad place where there is no restraint, which is set on your table would be full of richness you are filled with the judgment do the wicked judgment and justice take hold of you because there's wrath, beware lest he take you away with one below from our grandson, with that help you avoid it.
Verse 19. Will your riches are all the mighty forces keep you from distress. Do not desire the night when people are cut off in their place.
Take he did not turn to iniquity, for you've chosen this rather than affliction. The whole God is exalted by his power teaches like him. The sound of his way or him as you have done wrong, remember to magnify his work, of which Madison everyone is seen at. Man looks on it from afar, the whole God is great and we do not know and lurk in the number of his years be discovered for draws up drops of water which distillers grain from its which the clouds drop down and put her abundantly own band indeed.
Can anyone understand the spreading of clouds that are from this canopy looking scatters his line upon it covers the depths of the sea provide these he judges the people think it was food abundance.
He covers his hands with lightning and commands it to strike his vendor declares that the candle also concerning the Verizon store verse 11, and they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasure all on to say that I pleasures are bad. I'm glad out in a manner as a believer is found own things, but don't let things you a man you of your work in tithing and giving defendant/S different things are different treatment is also efficient.
Maybe it's an awesome motorcycle means an awesome car, maybe work on houses are nice and as a work of fiction. But the enemy wants us to believe that that does not describe the life of the believer. First John three a part of the verses for this purpose, the son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil. What works of the devil works the devil in you and me is not about him going out in the world is about him working on unbelievers is Tom I am working on this in one of the things he wants to clear how is this line from the pit. I a Christian can't be blessed or have pleasures, they don't look pleasures to own your life that you you put God first, you seek first the kingdom of God and all these things unto you is life lesson. It is a lie to think or believe that living as a Christian is worse than living as a non-Christian. It is a lot to think or believe that living as a Christian is worse than living as a non-Christian we see in chapter 36 Job there. These three friends go to he probably should have listened to him at all, but he did and he was lost he was confused when he was lost and confused.
God sent ever to him during times when you're struggling, God will send somebody to God is not a fair weather friend. And when you are any of us mess on all we need to do is come see him stop the behavior asked God for strength to do that if it doesn't have to get something else about become accountable. Remember this Jesus came to seek and save the lost and you and I were lost at one time the enemies I always believed anything.
The anime that this protection in God is blessing them. He hates the you think God would want you to believe that they know what Christians don't enjoy life now again this life that I compared I wish you was diminished in the Joe deal the sin that is misconceptions God was doing with Joe over his deception. A we can use at work. We know the enemy is involved.
We know Joe started thinking his righteousness was more than God's that selfish self-righteousness in me loves to get in on their when you engage in self-seeking want everything to be just right for you to get everybody else that self-seeking when you know it will hurt somebody to say something. Say it anyway. Self-seeking if you tear down people, especially Christian leaders.
Self-seeking to initiate things that you can beat fuzzy about or even deceived and spiritually be okay.
He may miss out on so people involved in guarding those anymore. That's sad to me but still go to heaven to miss out on some healings probably miss out on healing. Some people is when you believe God heals people. Guess what he'll get, you still get you to pray for good. You believe that angels God is awesome.
I don't believe in you and pray for summative ego that makes an incident like you do realize that if you are a believer, the spirit of God can work through the ozone layer. A man and some people do walk and gives meaning they walk in the mall. The town meeting. They pray for people in the wall. Perhaps the gift of healing that anybody can be visited with the gift of healing, encouraging energy that somebody said you have to stop and call some of you want to let Crane and if needed, will you in prayer and they be a man yet appointment way how you can go. Claimant think it's my pray you pray you pray so you can be deceived about something. There's a few things deceived about ignorantly shipwreck your faith and these are things the Bible talks about the probably put them in three groups deceived about God is not God you don't know who you're talking to your approach God wants to take the blinders off the seat about the Bible by the people questioned about because the enemy wants of the question the Bible because you don't trust the Bible you don't trust what's in it and you don't trust what's in it makes it much harder for God to speak to so deception about the Bible can be spiritual shipwreck and how it ties two things together sections about church deceptions about pastor pastors component in shipwreck effect for job before you came to Jesus you were deceived about the church you thought the church was whatever unit anywhere from a call to my district something altered yet.
You thought they were about to call you thought they were ignorant. Isn't it interesting that people in the world would call a Christian, ignorant is read the entire Bible and they've never ran this historical best seller, but they call themselves intelligent if you never read this book. I'm sorry. This is a very important don't say what I haven't read the Bible, but let me tell you about God and the Bible first and then you'll know there's no contradiction being deceived about church being deceived about pastor pastors wives that in their we need a Bible teacher, God can speak to us.
We know that, but also God is one and then instead of the church and he's the one that invented itself. The whole thing a pastor in teaching because it says in Ephesians 417. Each one of us and this is important because each one of us needs to play our role if we don't it will begin to fall apart, the people of the church are the ones who interact with people out there who are believers and don't know God and invite them in warning them they hear the gospel if you quit inviting people quit coming if people don't support the work of the ministry. You can't do the things he did so everything is time together. If he is forced out but to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ's gift. Therefore, he says when he ascended on high, led captivity captive, and gave gifts to men in Ephesians 411 and he himself God.
He himself got gave some gave him some all the apostles and prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, not advice. Pastor thereby teach his son Mark, who are the ones you gifted granite. You may have seen a pastor that wasn't gifted by God, and you probably could tell if you ever listlessly teach, and you are a believer and thought what he say how to get this went with chances are she may have not been called or gifted to want to give the fivefold ministry. Verse 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, and that just makes great strategic sense because if you just have the people who work at the church full-time doing all the work of the ministry. This thing with our partner just what happened. We need you ask for help and interact because it is more impact in the world do we want to take 1520 people and going back tomorrow or do we want to take hundreds going back to work. Hundreds a matter is not you look at a few and go real goodassault go do it. And as part of discipling is ministering to others is the last lesson. Do not be deceived in key areas, knowing at one time you were completely deceived and God is revealing all of these areas to you and tricks. That is a deep life lesson. Pastor David will be back in less than a minute as he continues teaching in Job chapter 36 this week we reflect on the birth of Christ and how thankful we are for Jesus and always done for us as a ministry we want to thank each one of you who continue to listen to the radio program were praying for others. Listing at the same time as you and who have open your hearts to receive the word of God to make a difference in your life. Please remember to continue to pray daily for cross the bridge and Pastor David McGee had now back to the teaching. Do not be deceived in key areas, knowing at one time you were completely deceived and God is revealing all of these areas to you and tricks to understand that the church is here to bless you to teach you to work to encourage you to give a platform the lot ministry goes is a good thing. So you're seeing it clearly if you deceived all the church is just about whatever all about money. I love when people say that I'm diagnosing already? If we don't pass up like that.
We trust God. People come thing to get you pass the plate urine, Villa, so that's not what were doing is not your if it cost us money every week not to pass the plate and God has told us not gospel equipment that simply meant in the course pastor pastors all about the money at my nose at right will spanking full-time for two years was abated. All we started this for 22 months and receiving any salary from the church is Justin, we had a garden with some savings. We cut everything down to the bone moved in with her father-in-law. My thought about her dad save money. God blessed God blessed and even today is God with the blessed select. I will be working full time job socket teach was willing to do that that hearts to share the word of God to help you blow the winds of deception away and walk in this life for Kelly.
She was talking about spend their days in prosperity in their years in pleasures is good praise God bless, obey and serve you see that first interview, obey and serve him then you get this big care spend their days in prosperity in their years in pleasures blessed you had a relationship with God eternally. It's for disobeying and serve any absurd question becomes, are you will pay and are you serving that your servant. Pray that God will raise up workers in the harvest. But if you're not certain you need to begin this or as part of growing up thing about others and helping others. And as you serve others and serve God again looking out he blesses you and again it is very clear in our minds from these deceptions must continue to follow God be in the word in verse 21 year state. He did not turn to iniquity chosen this rather than affliction.
The new living translation, Job, chapter 3621. Be on guard turned back from evil. For God sent the suffering to keep you from a life of faith which is got a big answer under this book daily wanted all these things happen. Liver said God sent the suffering that keep you from a life of evil. So as we grow we gotta be careful and a few weeks ago we talked about some of those things that are spirit of antichrist things available. Cora and Kane look at you talks about that course came gave a poor offering indeed and then killed his brother Scott in the murder not giving to God first fruits being available to compromise and partly from body in you got Cora, who rebel against spiritual authority were not heavy-handed with spiritual authority, passionate about helping people follow God passionate about discipling Romans 13 to therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. So when you resist authority are you rebel everyone of us will still rebel walking rebellions. Whatever authority police, government, church authority, attention, ungodly part of you that wants to rebuild the data that and trust God. James for sentences therefore submit to God.
Resist the devil and he will flee from you though submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Part of doing these course corrections as our our spiritual growth, checking our hearts rebellion in the self-seeking call sheet in the Bible and I know a lot of people think she connection – especially it's not a compliment but what if you been around cheaper organ a book in the bookstore. Shepherd looks at Psalm 23.
It's great book. She can be completely careful.
You have to do a lot of stuff you have to dip in pesticide stuff every six weeks because there are so prone to bugs, they can have their food be cared for, get the deer's the whole bit. And you know what they still do endlessly while the edge of looking for they will go out of the pin and starve themselves did death because they want to wander if one of them gets in a tight spot to push each other over a cliff, trying to see some in no way Kane workout feet must be willing to be honest that our hearts are the they wonder and we have to do metadata. Life was our hearts seem to want to wander. We must prefer or submit our spirit, not our flash must be in charge and keep us all point hearts seem to want to wonder if we must prefer or submit our spirit that are flash must be in charge and keep us all point to. We need to walk in the spirit, not the flash flash is the old nature what our body wants to do this is what our spirit wants to do to be fed to follow God, to obey and serve him and you know what, if you wander off if you get to the fence, come looking for you at some point you have to data the wandering heart is just some menaces always look at all of their grass is greener over there and must be better over there may be greener because I have a septic tank as nasty and smells horrible but you don't know the greater and praise God. If we allow them to keep our hearts for Luke 19 first non-Internet Jesus said to him today salvation has come to this house because he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of Man is come to seek and the safe.
That which was lost in Friendly's or the world is going to change you where you're going to change the world. We want to change the world. The guy starts with you starts with me.
We should let our hearts to God. Even in town feel like wandering off. We know it yet either. Even the pastor he wants to wander off but he too has this this is got wherever you want.
Whatever you want me to do my thank you for your word and your Holy Spirit that will keep us from being deceived even the least times larger warrants that the sections can be everywhere and end times and we see we even see believers, finances, descriptions the rising storm. God help us to be ready help us to see these things we talked about help us to see you clearly in the Bible more clearly and help us to see the church pastor or pastors clearly believe in the past, trusting you God not trusting man, with Amanda trusting God with all of our everything that you came to seek and save that which was lost or does a lot of lost people out there, give us a fresh boldness to invite their heater here where we teach the Bible where we share salvation here where people get saved here were people become disciples give us a fresh boldness to invite and to share the gospel with people and Lord continue to help see these things clearly were not deceived.
However, the baby tonight. The Holy Spirit loosen cobwebs out blue some deceptions away whenever you see truth in the Bible that you're not walking and begin to walk in it because God just showed it to God is revealing things to you tonight. Let the deception and the Holy Spirit and receive, the God taste and season.

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.
