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 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 42 now here's Pastor David Darling to Job 42 and is you don't have a bottle you can raise your hand was actually succumbing to bring you about can read along with us whether some awesome mysteries here at the end of Joe. It's interesting what God uses to reveal mysteries God uses interesting things to reveal his word because he wants us to know his work. How much does he want us to know is where you get into that tonight. At the time of Jesus, a six euro boy was chosen in almost all went for the first year to the yeshiva, which was the Jewish goal and after a year, most of them during the latter spot them showing them a letter on a piece of paper and they would drizzle honey over and so the little kids would actually lick the letters and taste and see that the Lord is sweet and good letters were just letters letter for the Obama swell letter for the end of the year six-year-olds had the book of Genesis memorized that one slip six years old book of Genesis, 10 years old. Four years later.

At the end of that year they will look at some of the kids and say you really kid, but you're never going to be around by so go learning the family business and held that if you didn't memorize Genesis viewer to finally find a group, but even if you memorize Genesis it, it didn't mean you automatically got on to go to the next year. By the time you were 10 years old. We think you would have what the 10 Commandments memorized her a couple Scriptures are no no no no years old, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus numbers Deuteronomy the whole tour tenure so I can ask us to memorize another Scripture and you now not going to make any scripture but certainly if you want to be a good thing.

We need to fill the word of God coming Philip to overflowing. We are going to think about something a man who selected getting a Job and I can promise you is we got some surprises in here for us to make chapter 42 verse one says then Job answered the Lord and said no that you can do everything you know that God can do anything and everything. I mean do you know walk around saying it but we don't like is interesting and it used to be. The book of Revelation was the book in the Bible that freaked us out, and now times are going crazy.

The book of Revelation and alum of the brain, it brings peace and reminds us we when part of the reason in every prayer. You start out addressing God in a similar fashion. Job uses only you can do everything in the Lord's prayer is our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. It's reminding God your your all-powerful, your all-knowing majority of Jewish prayers. Start out Yahweh else came home a lot, blessed are you will Lord our God, King of the universe so you start the prayer reminding yourself you're talking to, because then it gives perspective, everything is okay. Dear God, can you help out God with the church power builds a huge thing comes every month. That's one prayer list of differences. Blessed are you oh Lord our God, King of the heavens and the earth, maker of all that we see can you maybe help me out with my family here just that I use the funny you can plug in salvation.

You can you maybe save my cousin bring them to salvation.

Lord, if there's a different feeling every well so love the way that he starts else's I know you can do everything and that no purposes of yours can be withheld from you. You asked who is this who hides counsel without knowledge, therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. Listen please and let me speak you said I will question you and you shall answer me in it. Also Scripture that we quote often around here. The chapter actually has a couple of Isaiah 55 in verse eight says is listen to this for my thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways my ways, is the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than they are. So are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. Is ways. There is Derek in the Hebrew its highways and byways, which is very interesting because part of what he saying is that Uribe and you have eternal life, which means you're going to wind up in heaven. At point B, but the way that you go from point A to point B is not the same way that I might take for his rain comes down in the snow from heaven, and do not return their water the earth make it bring forth and blood that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater. Incidentally, this is thousands of years ago that the Bible is given the scientific explanation of the cycle of writing on if you notice it for as the rain comes down in the snow from heaven, and do not return their water the earth to make verse 11, so shall my word be that goes forth from my mouth. It shall not return to me boy, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent God sends his word forth to bloom and blossom in your heart and your life. Verse 12 for you shall go out with joy and be led with peace.

The mountains and the hills shall break forth into singing before you, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree and instead of the briar shall come up the murder or the crpe Myrtle tree and it shall be to the Lord for a name for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off your attention please. It's interesting when you go to plow the church you take a left. Got have to put the lawn in front of the church is all mowed and cleaned.

We actually own the property across the street.

We donated it for the circle and whatnot but between the road and the railroad track and so we know that you may have noticed something strange. We don't know all of it we leave while depends on your tannic knowledge.

I guess you could drop by and think with a left some weeds and forgot to know if you know something about plant email notice that those are crpe Myrtle's that didn't used to be there where thorns and briars used to be crpe Myrtle's came sounds so familiar. For some reason all the verse said that where briars were the Myrtle will, and so it is when God sends his word forth every time I drive past that it's a sign it's a reminder to you.

I was just thinking some of the guys would have been mowing. They been obedient having no idea why they weren't able to move those weeds and so now they understand is he reaching instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree and its little briar shall come up the rotor tree and it shall be to the Lord for a name for an everlasting sign shall not be cut off.

Sprinkle with praise God.

It's interesting how it works with plants and does different things uses things to encourage us back to Job 42 verse four he says listen. Please let me speak you said I will question you and you shall answer me. I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you, therefore I for myself and repent in dust and ashes, so Job says I have for myself is as a mystic, missed God and I am starting to see it but he says I abhor myself, and dusted ashes. They would take Dustin and throw it out in the air, so it landed on and they would leave it and they would walk around with dust and ashes in their head and face market on their face.

Sometimes they would tear there, while so you knew when you were in a crowd of people who was walking around and repent was no doubt it was like all I got got a Christian T-shirt on.

He might be a believer. It was discovered ashes so Gordo but you also asked the question, are you in repentance. You walked around seeing somebody with ashes and stuff coming. It was a call to repentance know aware of it. There's a first in the United States actually first in the world America who has brought the first man to the moon and cures for diseases now brings the world, another first we have cleared transgender folks for combat. How proud papa must be so just in case before now you were walking around thinking all this is life is normal. This is church is normal is not it's not. These are the times the bottle told us about. You have to look any farther than to see that there's animosity towards Christians in this country, people are being thrown in jail would be and find it's not church as usual.

This is that moment in time when we get to choose.

Jesus, I see your stuff, but I'm all in, not willingly rethink this thing. 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 is across 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 and noticed Job. Therefore, I warn myself see Jones really need the Lord just need a little self-esteem. He needed God's freedom, overslept, and so it was after the Lord had spoken these words to Job that the Lord said to Eliphaz the timber night now is aroused against you and your two friends for you have not spoken of me what is right, as my servant Job now therefore take for yourselves seven bulls and seven rams go to my servant Job and offer up for yourselves apart, offering, and my servant Job will pray for you for will accept him less to deal with. You according to your folly, because you have not spoken of me what is right. As servant Job. Things are starting to get interesting. Now I saw some things that I'd never seen before that I never heard anybody going out so I didn't have time to completely make sure nobody else would ever come up with so I like to say it's awesome and so many times after I think I'm the only one to see it up on hundreds of other seated, it's important as you study the word of God to commentaries and some of these other men. Women who studied the word of God and there's a saying that even a midget conceal long ways when he stands on the shoulder John's. It's important to read the word of God by itself for itself several times.

The passage that you want to share with somebody read it several times by phone were you will get a commenter don't ever just pull out a commentary. First, because all you dig and count of the word of God and what people say will be somewhat similar. Remember that whoever's right and that commentary was given a word from God.

From that passage of Scripture, perhaps, for the people he was pastor.

So while you go to commentaries.

Be careful. Now what we know about Job versus all Joe was from the trial of Issachar and they were known to be tour experts and number two God instructed men to take the sacrifices to Joe for Job to offer on their behalf, and how many animals did speak up if you look at verse eight. Therefore take for yourselves seven bulls seven rams going was just so God he was tour experts in the trunk of his car and God had instructed men to take sacrifices to Job for Job offer on their behalf. And incidentally, the Issachar thing is from Genesis, we covered up for Job in Job 42 nine in the new living translation is this so Eliphaz the timber night Bildad issue of the night and so far the never thigh did as the Lord commanded them, and the Lord accepted Job's prayer. So now what we know about Job.

List at least three first known to be tour expert to he intended. God instructed Joe to offer sacrifices on their behalf. The third, thank God instructed Joe to pray on their back. So we got out Joseph tour expert. He spoke God right here instructed him to offer sacrifices on the behalf.

He instructed Job to pray on their behalf. I'm going out on a limb here, it sounds like Job's local high priest, who else knows the Torah is instructed to offer sacrifices instructed offer prayers basin Allis on the Bible. I don't have commentary to stand. I'd rather we stand on the word of God and the going there is just an interesting thing is about could be nothing to build your salvation on the manager is interesting and doesn't it had an interesting little angle to everybody speaking evil about Job counterfeits, he knows we look at the book of Job, we all know what part we play in the book right well Job that you can be Joe Job your Job's friends.

You know, I doubt many if any of us will ever go through one Job went through and I think far more often we play the role of Job's friends. I know I have been in situations where I could've drawn no mercy and compassion and forgiveness and I didn't ask why you are so important to lean on the word of God and be led by the Holy Spirit is the Holy Spirit may have you respond different ways. Sometimes it will always be biblically maybe one time, there is grace. Maybe the next time there's correction.

Incidentally, when you're looking in Joe and especially in chapter 42 verses eight and nine. You see some words in italics is here in the new King James or some of the other versions that do this and what that is is the italicized words in their at the translators request to help sentence flow. So it wasn't necessarily in the original manuscripts, but it helps us to structure quantum is just the right hand. It never changes the meaning ever never never changes the meaning in some cases it helps illuminate the meeting. In some cases not so much take you to places that are interesting. Most of the places it just fits it just works to places all natural quick Philippians 313 it reads brother and I do not count myself to have apprehended. But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. Now that's actually all the italics words in there. The atomic words in this one is, interesting. You just pull out the second I do brother and I do not count myself to have apprehended.

But one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are habit this is late actually reads you could strike and actually should. But one thing it doesn't read in the original manuscripts.

One thing I do, it reads one thing and they were trying to help but listen how to read when you remove and you read it. According to the original managers brother and I do not count myself to have apprehended.

But one thing forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward regional different.

Not one thing I do one thing, forgetting those things which are behind sprightly word from God for somebody forget those things which are behind you and other places is interesting in the way I stumbled on this is because the Pharisees wanted to kill him when I really pick up rocks look for something in their John 824 Jesus is. Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins for review.

Do not believe that I am she, you will die in your sins will see is in italics this week is very interesting. So what it reads in your Bible therefore said to you that you will die in your sins, for you do not believe that I am he, you will die in your sent what it actually reasonable original length. Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins, for if you do not believe that I a.m. you will die in your sins. I a.m. is the name of God, Yahweh, I a.m. when Moses asked God, God said, I am that I am Yahweh.

I don't need anyone anything.

I am self-sufficient and Jesus said if you do not believe that I a.m. you will die in your sins.

That's what I said in John 825. The next verse I said who are you, is he just said I that meant something to their they associated that phrase that I know with God. So in other words, what review do not believe that I am he, for if you do not believe that I a.m. you will die in your sins that both are true is not a doctrinal change, but it is interesting for us to dig in the Jewish roots to see that she said if you do not believe I am pretty interesting. So back to Job 42 nine so Eliphaz the timber night. Bildad should I so far. Never thigh went and did as the Lord commanded for the Lord accepted Joe in the Lord restored Job's losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. It would be hard not to see what that versus a it was and when Job said God needs you may God need you to restore me to confess, and I got this link now enter something so she so monumental with like this if you get pass the skies no longer limit you get this God will bless you open up the windows of heaven.

You miss it you'll still be saved. You miss a lot. What is it the Lord begins the work any forgives us we go to heaven were aware of our said when asked God to forgive us. We begin a relationship would begin reading the wanted all our prayers are you know about the source of my we know some way. We've been save some people stay in that phase for anywhere from a couple days to couple years. Some people never move out of the what's supposed to happen is you become more more concerned with other people, so much so that in the beginning the 3R you number two may be others in number three is God, or maybe your number one God's number two others are number three but you are deftly number one gets a hold of you now some people again try to walk out Christianity with them retaining their number one status work is it doesn't work with you being number two either the way God set it up and designed it. Your third member love God, love your neighbor as yourself, what number you and that number three God others yourself that something you and I cannot do naturally as man can't roll talk got your camp the spirit of God sure can solicit something he does.

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.
