Hold on to GOD’s Unchanging Hand



Prayer



Main:

Job 14:13-15
Oh that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me! [14] If a man die, shall he live again? all the days of my appointed time will I wait, till my change come. [15] Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

1 Peter 5:6-7
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: [7] Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.



First Giving honor, praise, and high reverence to our Heavenly Father; honor to all my brothers of GOD’s fraternal order of Preacher; honor to the deacons and their wives; the choir, the ushers, and to all my brothers and sisters in Christ I greet you all in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Focus:

Job 14:15
Thou shalt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands.

1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

I want to use as a title for this text today “Hold on to GOD unchanging hand”

Today, I wanted to talk to and to the saints of GOD, the babes in Christ, and those who want to come into the fold. Today, I want you to understand that there is 66 books in our canonize version of the bible. In the first 39 books of the bible, it tells stories and set examples of how we should live and develop a relationship with GOD. In the last 29 books, the essences of the first 39 books are clarified to erase any misunderstanding that we have. That is why Jesus said in

Matthew 5:17-18
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. [18] For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

This is important because it will give you the insight of what GOD trying to tell you and strength you against the devil ability to manipulate us. Matthew 4 clarify this when the devil took Jesus to the top of temple and told Jesus to jump because what is written in the book of psalms, but Jesus strength in the word and relationship with GOD allow him to resist the devil with the book of Deuteronomy.

Now, this bring me to today’s example, Job. Though many have read the story of Job and how GOD bless his life; and the many Christians that have read or hear the story are fascinated by the events that took place. Many wish that they could live like Job, but many believe that Job is factitious character created to show us as Christians how we should live and trust in GOD in a time of peace and suffering. The will weaken the solidity of GOD’s words in this story, and create a utopia in our minds that we as Christians believe is impossible to achieve since our faith is weak in GOD. Job was real, how:

Biblical Proof: Genesis 46:13
And the sons of Issachar (This being the son of Isaac who one of the twelve tribes of Israel was name after); Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.

This proves that Job was not a created character, but a very real person indeed. Job had true loving relationship with GOD. He show up for church every
