    Mark 5:10; Job 9:25-26


    Mark 5:10

    KJV 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.


    Mark 5:10 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    10 He then begged Jesus not to send them away.


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


    These are my thoughts.

    Just because someone begs Jesus does not mean they have accepted Him as Lord. 

    Job 9:25-26

    KJV 25 Now my days are swifter than a post: they flee away, they see no good. 26 They are passed away as the swift ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.

    Job 9:25-26 Good News Translation (GNT)

    25 My days race by, not one of them good.

    26 My life passes like the swiftest boat,

        as fast as an eagle swooping down on a rabbit.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    Job good not see a time where good things would happen to him again, he was without any hope, it is often times when we have no hope in anything else that God decides to help us. Job also thought that his life soon fading away fast thinking he was going to die soon often times when people get the mind set that they are soon going to die that they change their attitude or their true attitude comes out.

    Mark 5:9;Job 9:23-24


    Mark 5:9 King James Version (KJV)
    9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

    Mark 5:9 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    9 Jesus asked, “What is your name?”
    The man answered, “My name is Lots, because I have ‘lots' of evil spirits.”

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

    These are my thoughts.
    As His children Jesus knows us by name and we can cry out on His. 

    Job 9:23-24 King James Version (KJV)
    23 If the scourge slay suddenly, he will laugh at the trial of the innocent.
    24 The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?

    Job 9:23-24 Good News Translation (GNT)

    23 When an innocent person suddenly dies,
        God laughs.
    24 God gave the world to the wicked.
    He made all the judges blind.
    And if God didn't do it, who did?

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

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    23 This is a much distorted view of God, God is happy to have His come home but does not take joy in people’s loss. It is better for us to be in God’s presence then in this world but God does laugh at pain, He brings comfort. We being in His presence does give Him praise. 

    24 The wicked run the world, God granted the world to them because it is fallen but it is given after He comes back to us the Believers. The world is fallen and often times the world in scripture is a reference to the wicked in it. There are corrupt judges but they are to honest and not swayed. God is the only just judge. The fall corruption of man was because of man’s fall in the garden again they did not have the scriptures to rely on for this truth. God allowed this to happen because while Adam gained a garden we gain heaven along with Jesus our Lord.

    Jude 1:1; Titus 1:1-3


    Jude 1 King James Version (KJV)
    1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called:

    Jude 1 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    1 From Jude, a servant of Jesus Christ and the brother of James.
    To all who are chosen and loved by God the Father and are kept safe by Jesus Christ.

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

    These are my thoughts.
    We are chosen by God and kept safe in Him, this does not mean it will be easy but means He is watching over us. 

    Titus 1:1-3 King James Version (KJV)
    1 Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness;
    2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began;
    3 But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

    Titus 1:1-3 Good News Translation (GNT)

    1 From Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ.
    I was chosen and sent to help the faith of God's chosen people and to lead them to the truth taught by our religion, 2 which is based on the hope for eternal life. God, who does not lie, promised us this life before the beginning of time,3 and at the right time he revealed it in his message. This was entrusted to me, and I proclaim it by order of God our Savior.

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

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    1 Just as Paul was a servant of Christ we are to live for Him as servants as well. Paul was an apostle, we all in Him have a purpose to serve that we are chosen for. Paul was called to both share the gospel and as here to help teach the truths and deepen other Christian’s faith. We should look for leadership in our lives that teach us the truth. 

    2 Our hope is on Jesus that He defeated death and is true to His word. Our life is in Him. 
    3 God had His plan from the beginning and revealed it piece by piece until the coming of Jesus and the big reveal was Him and by Him we come to the eternal life and have the truth in Him, He is the Truth.

    Mark 5:8; Job 9:20-22


    Mark 5:8King James Version (KJV)

    For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.


    Mark 5:8 Contemporary English Version (CEV)


    The man said this because Jesus had already told the evil spirit to come out of him.


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


    These are my thoughts.

    God has power over demons and anything else that may attack us. 

    Job 9:20-22 King James Version (KJV)

    20 If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me: if I say, I am perfect, it shall also prove me perverse.

    21 Though I were perfect, yet would I not know my soul: I would despise my life.

    22 This is one thing, therefore I said it, He destroyeth the perfect and the wicked.

    Job 9:20-22 Good News Translation (GNT)

    20 I am innocent and faithful, but my words sound guilty,

        and everything I say seems to condemn me.

    21-22 I am innocent, but I no longer care.

        I am sick of living. Nothing matters;

        innocent or guilty, God will destroy us.

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

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

    20 Job knew the might of the Lord and how He is holy and compared to Him Job was not, Job was being humble which made it sound like he was guilty of being sinful. Job just had such a faith and understanding of God that his friends did not understand, the world can not understand how we see the Lord and His will for our lives. 

    21 Job was not perfect only Christ is, but Job was considered even by God as righteous, being righteous does not mean we don’t sin it just means when we do we turn it to the Lord. Job just wanted to die because of all he was going thru, Job was not suicidal but just wanted God to take his life instead of allowing all that he was going thru to keep happening.

    22 Everyone is guilty of sin and deserves hell but for those of us who come to Christ we have Him to stand on our behalf at judgment to where we won’t be condemned but we are saved by Him and it is only by Him that we won’t be destroyed. Job knew that no matter what people die, those who come and follow the Lord and those who reject the Lord all die after death is where who we serve in our life matters.
