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 have hundreds of his teachings through the many books of the Bible, and 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 pastor David has been teaching practical lessons from the life of Job. What needed to be learned. Back then, still needs to today, I think you'll find that to be true as we take a closer look at the conclusion of the book of Joe now here's Pastor David Darling and Job 42.
I can promise usually got some surprises in the Air Force might go to chapter 42 verse one. Since then Job answered the Lord and said no that you can do everything you know that God can do anything and everything so love the way that he starts else's I know you can do everything and that no purpose of yours can be withheld from you. You asked… Enhance 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. 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 and so it was after the Lord had spoken these words to Job that the Lord said to Eliphaz, the termini not wrath 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 a burnt offering in my servant Job pray for you for will except him, lest I deal with, you according to your folly, because you have not spoken of me what is right. As servant Job to Eliphaz the termini and Bildad should I so far MSI went and did as the Lord commanded for the Lord had 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 hand a lot before, but now Job is its massive denial as brothers and sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before came to donate food with him in his house late consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the Lord brought upon each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Joe more than his beginning and he had for 18,000 sheep. He had seven before 6000 camels and 3000 before 1000 yoke about 500 before and 1000 female.gif and he had seven sons and three daughters, and he called the name of the first Jemima the name. The second desire the name of the third counter cookbook in all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Joe and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
That in usually happen.
The inheritance went to the guys and the girls work, they were kind of passed over, but the thought was that they would marry another guy who would guide an inheritance, but it's no more deleted.
Joe gave his daughter Sir inheritance over 60 after this Job lived 140 years and so his children and grandchildren for four generations.
So Job died old and four days. The Bible speaks of heaven in the plural form a lot of things on earth are modeled after heaven were actually told in the Hebrew Scriptures and the make things even more interesting. We recognize that there is a sleep Jerusalem and the Bible speaks about a heavenly Jerusalem. Perhaps that's why Jerusalem ends in an EM which tells anybody that reads and those Hebrew. Jerusalem is a plural word by more than one playmate more than wonders. There's one here the earthly and there's another heavenly Jerusalem. Now when we see all says in one place that he knew a guy went to the third heaven we spoke before that. That means there's 1/3 heaven if there's 1/3 heaven. What we know there's a first heaven and what else do we know there's a second now does the Bible speak of a second. No, absolutely not know what you know there's a second because there's 1/3 in the analogy I used was, you know, if you go to buy a house and there's two bathrooms, and it is a way man now Mr. realtor plainly said I wanted 1/3 bathroom and the realtor says to you all… You got your first bathroom and you got your third bathroom you say no. You're obviously missing the point. It can't be the first and the third is the first and the second you have to have three to have 1/3. So God expects us to use your common sense and know there's a second because of the first, there's 1/3. The Bible tells us that God is in charge everything he's left hand in charge of the earth to have dominion subdue the earth. I've spoken before about the Hebrew names and how there's something in there prophetically that somebody has a certain gift or such, we think that was just giving the animals names.
It's much deeper than outweigh before-and-after, but we can't go into that You must ask ourselves is why relationship does God think we should have this book you think he thinks we ought to read it five minutes on Sunday using he thinks we should read it every other day.see anything really think when they feel we have a sin when Jesus is here and they would ask questions and repeatedly he said, have you not read that in the beginning God created him male that is. He says it five times and there's not only that he's thinking we had read it, but that we also understand it. So in second Timothy 215 it says be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth couple other versions new living translation says work hard so you can present yourself to God and receive his approval be a good worker, one who does not need to be ashamed, that's big head and who correctly explains the word of truth in the King James it says study to show thyself approved on the got a workman that need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. In verse 16 Sean profane and vain babblings for they will increase unto more ungodliness. Verse 17 and he goes on explaining there something deeper going talking about communis and fleet assesses and the message will spread like cancer after he says day study to show yourself approved.
He says this in their message will spread like cancer. How many of us and fleet us are of the sort. In verse 18 new restraint concerning the truth saying that the resurrection sort of pass may overthrow the faith of some. Don't miss and asking ourselves what relationship does God expect us to have the word of God that passages study to show yourself approved.
He didn't say read is study enhances the ones who didn't got into this idle, profane, profane family, and it spread like cancer and they over through the faith of some lifeless near we are to study to eat that you swallow the know and love the word of God.
We are study to eat that you defaulting know to love the word of God. There's so much of this book again and in order study would be able to read one of the pictures of meditating on something is a Chewing the cut counts have multiple stomachs and kinda gross but interesting that they eat grass and swallow it and they bring it back to chew it simple and actuality again and they bring it back up to chew.
It's morning goes to the third son, that's the word picture. It would be getting a verse in the here taught you that is so awesome and you only need look at a study.
Indeed, a little bit more and maybe just a gift, like leftovers, you me when you get a restaurant you go to eat. He can't eat it all. There's always some left over that you take home and give the people you care about so that the word got home.
People you care about that shoe word of God. It's amazing to me that God has revealed himself in this book and is willing to reveal himself even more so to anybody will take the time to dig in.
Here is a big part of what were about. I committed years ago that whoever came that I would love them with every ounce of energy and that I would teach them that my opinions but the word of God to whoever would come now is reminded us in the beginning on Thursday night looking out verse six people there that night was the wife, five kids, but there they were. And so I thought now probably couple of those kids they didn't really see can we go deep but may be somewhat limited, like tonight. We all have listened and we really heard God is willing to make a covenant with anyone anywhere, and he wants to teach and give wisdom. The word of God a reality. The blessings in the favor of God of reality in your life for anybody who take the time that's what God said, let me add this that because of my calling.
What the Lord I believe has gifted me to do. I am here to teach anybody who will listen, apply, and learn and DNase of the name is Sharon and I remember the moment when we were talking and he said I really want to know the word of God. So I really want to chew the word of God. So it's a good fit and he said I really I really want you to teach me and he meant and so now in this season. I will continue to raise Minutemen will continue to come in here and share and that's a great joy. But I'm also good to be looking for men that not only teach the word of God to put teach, to teach the word of God to begin the show on how to get in digging to present a teaching. I don't know what that looks like right now this is not leading up to an announcement of Bible College. Of course, are anything like that. I guess it starts with making sure you come in here hungry.
Thursday and Sunday is us understand the world is trying to get you to think like them okay. It's worldly. It's selfish it's ungodly. God wants you to think like he does. That's according to his word, loving kindness, forgiveness.
It's very unlike the world system and you get to choose Christian. I chose not 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 bridge.com to start receiving yours for free.
If you have a cell phone. You can also text the word encourage 294253 receive a short encouraging text from us each day. That's 94253 and now back to the teaching if you're Christian.
That means you chose once again. Each one of us has to get up every day and so today I will follow her today, God's overthrow of my heart not my flesh not my feelings. I'm upset. It's a lie so no wonder that know there's a reason that and it's a powerful reason. The Bible says don't hold onto you. Don't let the sun go down on your wrath break the cycle final lifeless of God is made a covenant available to mankind.
Anyone willing to be a believing whosoever God is made a covenant available to mankind. Anyone willing to be. Whosoever now house a covenant relationship with God happened will one God's already done everything needed and necessary to be our Messiah are go. Well, our kinsman redeemer number two. Anyone who accepts the covenant and its conditions.
Gains all of its blessings. Anybody rejected does not. So when you accept the confident you accept the conditions and you gain all the blessings think the covenant also brings with it. Blessings that are only available to those who accept receive and believe the covenant God says this in Isaiah chapter 1 verse 18, now, let us reason together to sort through your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as well. What an awesome offer why an incredible offer. God says now please. This is God speaking to each one of us in this moment. Don't think was God speaking to an unbeliever.
Now that's God speaking to you speaking to me. Let's pray thank you for this evening and thank you for choices where life is filled with choices. We thank you for giving us choices and you help us you give us the word of God which helps us with these choices and helps us when we mess up to be forgiven when we made the wrong choice. Liturgy tell us in your word to not let the sun go down on our wrath are our anger, our unforgiveness Lord there's people here listen to go to bed with her wrath every night and wake up with people here listen have offenses and attitudes towards other people are towards pastoring toward me and they are making a choice about their choosing their offense, their selfishness, which leads to more more misery if tonight whether you're here or listen from somewhere else if tonight dear upset with supplying your angry was something you got an attitude towards theirs. Unforgiveness any of those. All of those you are choosing those things, and your choosing those things over Jesus different natural choice but I gotta tell you how to go. Lord help us to choose well when I know many of us have been wounded sadly make decisions not based on you and your word that we make decisions based on our woundings in our feelings in an enemy comes us all know that doesn't apply to you.
You can't be set free tonight. As for somebody else friend of your holding onto your wrath.
Your choosing not to have your healing a mask for anybody for every body Lewis, who will have ears to hear that you put the wrath down your offense down. You could attitude down even those who think they are spiritual and clinging to the wrath and unforgiveness into should put it down while because the Lord instructs us to friends he actually points out there's a danger here just… I don't doubt on your wrath, neither give place to the devil.
So tonight, each and every one of us has a decision made to choose God afresh to forget what is behind us to look excitingly to the future of what God is going to do. Choose God. The choose to choose forgiveness. That's the choice that each and every one of us needs to be willing to not walk in your path to walk in the path that God has for you and friend right now is the time led all down and follow him. There is such clutter and confusion and voices who are you listening to the voice speak to led the Savior, God, you let the one who protected and healed. Job protect and heal you and may you call upon him with both hands drop whatever is in your hand and reach out for him. It's all nine God wants all of you, and these are the times that require all of us.
There's lives at stake. God is raised up leaders and myself to help teach training reveal the Bible to any body who will listen. This is a special place that needs to be prayed for encourage supporting not torn apart every time you make a phone call, whatever has filled your hands, let it go if you looked back from the plow stop, look forward God rescues us. He never promises he's going to keep rescuing us. He actually says I will not always strive with man. If you've been speaking ill of people stop the spirit of God will help you do that the soul is too precious of a thing to lose over a loose mouth.
If you struggle with ask God to forgive you share with a friend to help you be accountable and know when God asked us to come to him and give our all. I know it's scary and I know the enemy loves to get in there, create fear, apprehension and anxiety. But friend. This is God talking about. He will hold you in the palm of his hand. When you come to him you are never in such a safe place to try to lead yourself.
Try to direct yourself to me spiritually confusing times and you land in a world of hurt in a hurry. Words of Jesus going out tonight. Have you not read God, we thank you for this place, this is so far beyond one person or one man's vision God, thank you that there are so many people here that are hungry for the word of God there sick and tired of cotton candy and got a desire truth even when it hurts, asked the groom the number of people who want to embrace your words Lord tonight help us to each and all once again lay it all down and give it all away. No hold back if tonight we knew you were coming in 30 days we would live differently. You may be confident 30 days to friends. Let's live differently in Jesus was coming in 30 days what would you change tomorrow, what would you do differently than do it differently if you knew this was your last Sunday, on the face of the earth be different than let it be different if he knew you had 30 days which family members. What you call that call if you knew some of the conversations were going to be the very last ones you had, how would you change and let them be changed led us to be changed. If you would embrace the Lord already asked for just come forward right now prayer teams you guys to come forward and begin to pray for folks just continue to calm us.
