    Mark 4:37;



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBi2Rbf8hm4

    Mark 4:37 King James Version (KJV)

    37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.

     

    Mark 4:37 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    37 Suddenly a windstorm struck the lake. Waves started splashing into the boat, and it was about to sink.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    Storms are going to come into our life the question is how are we going to handle them?

     

    Job 8:6-7 King James Version (KJV)

    If thou wert pure and upright; surely now he would awake for thee, and make the habitation of thy righteousness prosperous.

    Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase.

     

    Job 8:6-7 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

     if you are so honest and pure,
     then God will come and help you
     and restore your household as your reward.
    All the wealth you lost will be nothing
     compared with what God will give you then.

    6 He was letting him know that if he had not sinned against God then he would take care of him, there is some truth to this but we have to remember God’s see things eternally and not as we do so for Him to take care of us means that the now is bad but eternity is good us being with Him. Job would have his things restored to him, this does not mean everyone who suffers a lose will regain things by coming to the Lord, the things Job lost may have kept him from serving the Lord as effective as he could have.

     

    7 What God gave us was His Son to die in our place for our sins this is worth more than anything we could gain, God would give Job back more then what he lost, the blessings were more then the lose.

    Mark 4:35; Job 8:4-5



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aRgi8fUbrQ

    Mark 4:35 King James Version (KJV)

    35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.

     

     

    Mark 4:35 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    A Storm

     

    35 That evening, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the east side.”

     

    Contemporary English Version(CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    Sometimes we need to cross the troubled waters of life because that is where Christ is leading us. 


     Job 8:4-5 King James Version (KJV)

    If thy children have sinned against him, and he have cast them away for their transgression;

    If thou wouldest seek unto God betimes, and make thy supplication to the Almighty;

     

    Job 8:4-5 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Your children must have sinned against God,
     and so he punished them as they deserved.
    But turn now and plead with Almighty God;

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

    4 Job’s children had great sin and Job offered up sacrifices on their behalf, this man may have not known this, while his children did what was evil Job did what was just. The man may be right about God punishing his children this may be one of the reasons God allowed Satan to do these things to Job.

     

    5 What this man is trying to say about Job is not fully accurate because we see how early even God refers to Job as righteous, yes Job was not perfect we learn he had a pride issue but this man was completely on base for what he was trying to say about Job, we can not just tell people they are sinners and beat them down, we share Christ thru love even though we have to let them know that they are sinners but that Christ died to save them, we have to do this without make ourselves seem to be better than them which is what this man was doing, make himself better than Job because God had not sent these things his way so Job’s sin must have been greater than his is what he thought, we can not have this mind frame when trying to bring people to the Lord.

    Mark 4:36; Job 8:1-3



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQwuKss41xs

    Mark 4:36 King James Version (KJV)

    36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.

     

    Mark 4:36 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    36 So they left the crowd, and his disciples started across the lake with him in the boat. Some other boats followed along.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    As His followers we are not to stay in the crowd but break away from them and stand for Him. 


     Job 8:1-3 King James Version (KJV)

     

    Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said,

    How long wilt thou speak these things? and how long shall the words of thy mouth be like a strong wind?

    Doth God pervert judgment? or doth the Almighty pervert justice?

     

    Job 8:1-3 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    1-2 Are you finally through with your windy speech?
    God never twists justice;
     he never fails to do what is right.

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

    1 Bildad could not keep quiet any more but Job it would have been better if kept silent because Job was going thru enough he did not need him to beat him down, we sometimes need to know that we are to bring words of comfort and this is what Job needed.

     

    2 He was telling Job that his view of things was clearly wrong and that he was making no sense, like hot air was his speech.

     

    3 God is a fair judge, he is right about this but we all deserve God’s judgment but some things just happen as a result of life, Job condition was not a result of his sin but because of his following the Lord allowed him to be attacked by Satan. God is always right and thru what we go thru we should be drawn closer to Him.

    Mark 4:34; Job 7:20-21



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BJ2ZcCWTDfk&nohtml5=False

    Mark 4:34 King James Version (KJV)

    34 But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.

     

    Mark 4:34 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    34 He did not tell them anything without using stories. But when he was alone with his disciples, he explained everything to them.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    While the world may not know things fully He guides us thru His truths.


    Job 7:20-21 King James Version (KJV)

    20 I have sinned; what shall I do unto thee, O thou preserver of men? why hast thou set me as a mark against thee, so that I am a burden to myself?

    21 And why dost thou not pardon my transgression, and take away my iniquity? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be.

     

     

     

    Job 7:20-21 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    20 Are you harmed by my sin, you jailer?
     Why use me for your target practice?
     Am I so great a burden to you?
    21 Can't you ever forgive my sin?
     Can't you pardon the wrong I do?
    Soon I will be in my grave,
     and I'll be gone when you look for me.

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

    20 We think sometimes because ours sins don’t harm anyone that are sins are not as sinful but our sins that we think don’t harm anyone still is the reason Jesus died on the cross. The jailer however had no reason to arrest Job because of his sins, but we should be more concerned with our faults with the Lord than those of this world because when we have faults with the world then we have faults with the Lord and fixing them with Him will lead us to fix our troubles with the world. Job felt as though he was being attacked and often when we feel this it is by those closest to us but they do it out of concern for us it just comes out the wrong way.

     

    21 The most important forgiveness to seek is the Lord’s but we should seek man’s forgiveness when we wrong them but Job had not wronged his friends and because of that they could not do for Job about his sin. Job was just wanting to die amd have things be over with.

    Mark 4:33; Job 7:17-19



    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5I-zCMJX_2A

    Mark 4:33 King James Version (KJV)

    33 And with many such parables spake he the word unto them, as they were able to hear it.

     

    Mark 4:33 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    The Reason for Teaching with Stories

     

    33 Jesus used many other stories when he spoke to the people, and he taught them as much as they could understand.

     

    Contemporary English Version (CEV) Copyright © 1995 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts.

    The Lord will not teach us beyond our own understanding. 


    Job 7:17-19 King James Version (KJV)

    17 What is man, that thou shouldest magnify him? and that thou shouldest set thine heart upon him?

    18 And that thou shouldest visit him every morning, and try him every moment?

    19 How long wilt thou not depart from me, nor let me alone till I swallow down my spittle?

     

    Job 7:17-19 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    17 Why are people so important to you?
     Why pay attention to what they do?
    18 You inspect them every morning
     and test them every minute.
    19 Won't you look away long enough
     for me to swallow my spit?

     

    Good News Translation (GNT) Copyright © 1992 by American Bible Society

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

    17 Job may be questioning the Lord but could also be asking his friends that were with him, this is a good question for us to ask ourselves, if it is out of anything but love then it is for the wrong reasons.

     

    18 We should not try to test people to bring them down but only to bring them up and see if they are ready for something better. When church leaders are chosen there should be a testing period to see if they can handle it because even though they are qualified they may not be able to handle it and this is a reason for testing.

     

    19 Job was in awful place and was starting to become bitter and anger because of his condition. We should allow on conditions to help us grow and not hurt our growth but this is not easy, the Lord was there for Job to turn to the entire time of his struggle but Satan sent men that hurt Job to distract him and this is the same way he works today.
