  • Brother William
    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? He who has clean hands and a pure heart. Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor sits in the seat of the scornful. For his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in the law of the Lord he does meditate day and night. The ungodly are not so, but are as the chaff which the wind drives away.

    Read Matthew 24, then 2 Peter 2, 2Timothy 3, Jude, Psalm 1, Isaiah 1, Jeremiah 5, for a start.

    To Word, In Job 38:4 God is speaking to Job, "WHERE WERE YOU when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell me, if you know so much." If Job wasn't there when God created the earth, then you and I and all the souls your talking about were not present either! God is speaking to the Angels.

    Robert, I suggest that you begin my asking God to guide you and thanking him for doing it. You can start by simply reading scripture, but I would recommend listening to good messages from faithful sources too. God bless

    I am new to real bible study. I was raised a Catholic but dropped out in high school. Under Catholicism in my embryonic years having Mortal sins was a road to Hell if u did not confess. So although I still pray I am not a church goer and feel that I am doomed because divorce ended my marriage. Seeing worldly events develope I am scared to death for all, esp. my family. How do I even start!!!

    To Susan on the trinity - Deut. 4:35; Isa. 42:8; 43:11; 44:6l v. 8; 45: 5-6, v. 15, 18-22; 46:9; 48: 11-12; Jn. 17:3; Deut. 6:4; Col. 1:19; 2:9. In reading all these in the O.T. remember the Israelites were MONOTHEISTIC. Jesus was a Jew; His message was to His people. Had He been a 2nd person in the trinity - then God made His people believe a lie in the O.T.
