"God Is For Us" from Job 23:1-17

Image
God will be there for you even if all is against you. Job is doing good, in fact he helps people and he has all things. And now his friends accusing Job all over again in this book again and again.

Once you are bitter, you are not looking better for yourself. We need to surrender your problems to Jesus and don't keep it for surely you will become bitter. We should not be afraid to talk to God when you're bitter.

2 Corinthians 5:19-20
19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God.
Job wanted to reconcile before God. Part of this book is The testing of Job's Life. Nature of men is we want to defend ourselves, but we should let God alone defend ourselves.

In 1 John, you can see in this book that Jesus is our attorney who…

"The Deliverance Of The Lord" from Job 22:1-30

Image
Here Eliphaz insulted Jon that he is boasting that he is a good man, also Eliphaz described Job as a wicked man and Eliphaz described righteous and wicked.

Verse 1-3, what are you good to God?
Verse 4-11, Eliphaz described Job as a great wicked. Eliphaz says to Job are not true and we can see that he is not a good friend.

Verse 12-20, a contrast between the wicked and the righteous.
Verse 21-30, advice of Eliphaz to Job.

Psalm 119:11 I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp for my feet,
a light on my path.

"A True Friend Helps" from Job 20:1-29

Image
It's hard for us to copy what Jesus did, to be a true friend. We have to be thoughtful to others.
1st pt. verse 1-16, a true friend loves at all times and
2nd pt. verse 17-29, do not forsake our friends.

Maybe you encounter friends always talking about his problem, you should not be annoyed to them instead help them. Zophar said Job was a hypocrite of his sin.

Mirth means laughter or fun. Dung means a fertilizer. This is true for those who rejected God, to a lot of famous nowadays. Although he was telling the truth somehow to Job but a true friend will help them in the trials.

Amends means punishment. You should know that as Christians we will surely have hardships.

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
Even though you have God it doesn't mean you will never have hardship. Some churches teaches if you have God in your life, you will always have blessings and …

"Serve God Wherever He Leads You" from Acts 11

Pastor's Message
John 1:4 In Him was light, and that life was the light of men.
Do you want to have real life? A life that is meaningful? Full of joy and worth? I think everybody wants to have a kind of life. But the problem is that few people find that "life" - (new, change, renewed life) and most of all not many obtained Eternal life.
John clearly expounded, that in Christ there is life, and this life is the "Light of men". In other words, Christ will clear our ways and will give us straight path, so that we'll not turn to right or to the left. Therefore, in Christ we'll have guidance and direction to reach our destination in Heaven for Jesus himself said: I am the Light of world, whoever follows me will never walk in the darkness.

"He Will Never Turn His Back On You" from Job 19:1-28

Image
God prove here to Job that He will never leave us - for God is faithful.

Psalm 118:8-9 8 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in humans.
9 It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in princes.

Trusting Jehovah, not trusting men. Job response to Eliphaz. It hurts our feelings whenever we hear insulting or words that are harsh.

As a Christians, w/ brothers and sisters in Christ, we should always encourage one another and not to discourage.

Psalm 64:3 They sharpen their tongues like swords
and aim cruel words like deadly arrows.
Job was humiliated by their words. Know that if you will cry to God, He will listened to you. It's not literally cry but if you put on your burden to God - know that He will comfort you.

Shrouded means crowded. Like Jonathan in the old testament, If God is for us who can be against us. Even though we are separate from our friends, God will be there for us.

Even though how you disobey, God's will for you or false d…
