    Mark 2:8; Job 2:3-4



    Mark 3:8 King James Version (KJV)

    And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.

     

    Mark 3:8 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    and Jerusalem. People came from Idumea, as well as other places east of the Jordan River. They also came from the region around the cities of Tyre and Sidon. All of these crowds came because they had heard what Jesus was doing.

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

     

    The word about what Jesus is doing still needs to be shared in the world today.

     

    Job 2:3-4 King James Version (KJV)

    And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

    And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.

     

    Job 2:3-4 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    “Did you notice my servant Job?” the Lord asked. “There is no one on earth as faithful and good as he is. He worships me and is careful not to do anything evil. You persuaded me to let you attack him for no reason at all, but Job is still as faithful as ever.”

     

    Satan replied, “A person will give up everything in order to stay alive.

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    3 This is the second time God asks Satan this, God still knew the answer. We should act as Job did and avoid evil and serve God, Jesus did this better than anyone could ever because Jesus is God He could set the perfect example. Job was not perfect but Satan may have seen him as because he was so righteous. The greatest worship we can do is to not do evil. God allows Satan to attack us with sickness and physical problems; it is also a result of the fallen state of sin.

     

     

     

    4 Satan is wrong here even though Job would fall to sin it was God’s way for Him to be able to lift Job back up.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:7; Job 2:1-2



    Mark 3:7 King James Version (KJV)

    But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,

     

    Mark 3:7 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    Large Crowds Come to Jesus

     

    Jesus led his disciples down to the shore of the lake. Large crowds followed him from Galilee, Judea,

     

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

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

    If we follow Jesus, He will take us places.

     

    Job 2:1-2 King James Version (KJV)

    Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord.

    And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

     

    Job 2:1-2 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    Satan Tests Job Again

     

    When the day came for the heavenly beings to appear before the Lord again, Satan was there among them. The Lord asked him, “Where have you been?”

     

    Satan answered, “I have been walking here and there, roaming around the earth.”

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    1 It never mentions how often the angels met with God or hwy they needed to meet with God but that Satan would come which meant he knew the times they met and wanted to be there probably to cause trouble.

     

     

     

    2 God knows where Satan has been, it more of God’s way asking Satan to tell him where he had been. It gets Satan thinking about where he had been and what he saw. Satan reason for being on the earth is because he wants to keep sins going in the world to keep people from submitting to the Lord.

    Mark 3:6; Job 1:20-22



    Mark 3:6 King James Version (KJV)

    And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.

     

    Mark 3:6 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

     

    The Pharisees left. And right away they started making plans with Herod’s followers to kill Jesus.

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts.

     

    They looked for those of the world for help in their evil plans, who are we making our plans with, those of God or of the world?

     

     

    Job 1:20-22 King James Version (KJV)

     

    20 Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,

     

    21 And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

     

    22 In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

     

     

    Job 1:20-22Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    20 Then Job got up and tore his clothes in grief. He shaved his head and threw himself face downward on the ground. 21 He said, “I was born with nothing, and I will die with nothing. The Lord gave, and now he has taken away. May his name be praised!”

     

    22 In spite of everything that had happened, Job did not sin by blaming God.

     

     

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    20 It was common at this time to show grief. Grief comes to us all but perhaps never as it did for Job. Grief and death and losing things are sadly apart of life.

     

     

     

    21 Job understood that the Lord blessed him, it is hard to see this when things are going against us, someone did have it out for Job, Satan. Often times when things go for the worst we do not turn to God but turn away. We should look at ourselves to see how we react when things go against what we want or think should be done. Job accepted that God allowed all that had happened.

     

     

     

    22 Job stayed true as God said He would, this may have made Satan want to break Job. Job did accept that God undone things but accepted that He could do that and praised Him anyway, Job did not curse God for taking things away from Him, in spite of what had happened Job still knew God should be praised.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:5; Job 1:18-19



    Mark 3:5King James Version (KJV)

    And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.

    Mark 3:5 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    Jesus was angry as he looked around at the people. Yet he felt sorry for them because they were so stubborn. Then he told the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He did, and his bad hand was healed.

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

     

    These are my thoughts.

    No matter how people are going to react we need to do what God wants us to do.

     

    Job 1:18-19 King James Version (KJV)

    18 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:

    19 And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

    Job 1:18-19 Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    18 Before he had finished speaking, another servant came and said, “Your children were having a feast at the home of your oldest son, 19 when a storm swept in from the desert. It blew the house down and killed them all. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.”

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    18 Losing children is never easy but after losing all the things before things just seem to get worse for poor Job, he may be thinking what I am going to lose next and then the man comes with news that his children are dead.

     

     

     

    19 A storm, Satan does not control the weather so this is God allowing Satan to have this on Job for God to show Satan. God does not allow bad things to happen to us for nothing job would be stronger in faith and give us his issue of pride due to all these things, if a storm comes our way, is it going to knock us out or just carry away our junk that God needed us to remove, that is what He allowed to happen to Job.

     

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 3:4; Job 1:16-17



    Mark 3:4 King James Version (KJV)
    4 And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.


    Mark 3:4 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

    4 Then he asked, “On the Sabbath should we do good deeds or evil deeds? Should we save someone’s life or destroy it?” But no one said a word.

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

    These are my thoughts.
    Doing right has no time frame, at the times we often least expect we find chances to help people.

    Job 1:16-17 King James Version (KJV)

     

    16 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

     

    17 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

     

     

    Job 1:16-17Good News Translation (GNT)

     

    16 Before he had finished speaking, another servant came and said, “Lightning struck the sheep and the shepherds and killed them all. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.”

     

    17 Before he had finished speaking, another servant came and said, “Three bands of Chaldean raiders attacked us, took away the camels, and killed all your servants except me. I am the only one who escaped to tell you.”

     

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

     

     

     

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    16 Satan sometimes attacks us at our weakest where we are most likely to break. Lightning does not come from Satan but God proving to Satan allowed lightning to strike. So now Job has lost servants donkeys, oxen and shepherds and sheep and has only two servants that had survived to bring bad news.

     

     

     

    17 So after this he no longer has his camels, Satan wanted to beak Job bad so he put the attacks right after one another. Job has three servants left at this time because Satan wanted him to be told, Satan could have taken these servants because Job would found out the bad news but it would have been not as quick, the Chaldean’s was the place Abraham came from.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.
