Acts 16:6-10
# 7 In Biblical Misunderstandings 101
 
“Paul and his companions traveled through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the Word In the province of Asia. When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the spirit of Jesus would not allow them to do so. So they passed by and went to Troas. During the night Paul had a vision
Of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, COME OVER TO MACEDONIA AND HELP US. Beginning the next day Paul prepared to leave for Macedonia.” ~ Acts 16: 6-10 (NASV)

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you. Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle.” ~ Psalm 32:8-9 (NASV)
 
“He would send The Holy Spirit who would guide the disciples. For you know He lives with you and will be in you.” ~ John 14:18 (NASV)

and a light unto my path." ~ Psalm 119: 104-105 (NASV)

    I. Believers Often Experience Pain In Their Lives

    “We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life. Indeed in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. He
    Has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us with your prayers.” 2 Corinthians 1:8-10 (NASV)
     
    “five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I spend a day and night in the open sea, I have constantly been on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my own countrymen, in danger from the Gentiles, in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea, and in danger from false brothers. I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked. Besides everything else, I face daily pressure of my concern for all the churches.” ~ 2 Corinthians 11:24-28 (NASV)

    I. God Will Not Bless A Lazy Work Attitude

    “We give you this rule; if a man will not work, he shall not eat. We hear that some among you are idle. They are not busy, they are lazy, good-for-nothings. Such people we command and urge in the Lord Jesus Christ, to settle down and earn the bread they eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3: 10-12 (NASV)
     
    II. The Lie Found in Self-Help

    III. God Helps The Helpless
     
    “Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death. When I said, My foot is slipping, your love O Lord supported me. When anxiety was great within me, Your consolation brought joy to my soul.” ~ Psalm 94:17-19 (NASV)

    #4 Biblical Misunderstandings 101
     
    “But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” ~ 1 Timothy 6: 6-10 (NASV)

    BUT THAT PHRASE IS NOT FOUND IN THE BIBLE.
     
    “He who withholds the rod, hates his son, but he who loves him, disciplines him diligently.” ~ Proverbs 13:24

    II. The Eyewitness To The Resurrection
     
    “For we did not follow cleverly contrived myths when we made known to you the power and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ; Instead, we were eyewitnesses of His majesty.” ~ 2 Peter 1:16 (NASV)
     
    "For I pass on to you as most important what I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to over five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of them are still alive, but some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one born at the wrong time, he also appeared unto me.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15: 3-8 (NASV)

    Can You Trust The Bible?
    Psalm 19:1 - 8
    Series: The Misunderstandings of Bible 101
     
    I. Jesus Taught That Scripture Is The Word Of God

    “You are mistaken, because you do not know the Scripture or the power of God…now concerning the resurrection of the dead, haven’t you read what was spoken to you by God: I am the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and The God of Jacob? He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living.” ~Matthew 22: 29 – 31 (NASV)
     
    II. Jesus Taught Scripture Contains True History
     
    Noah – in Matthew 24:37 “the immorality of the days of Noah would be happening again before Jesus returns.” – JESUS CONFIRMING THE TRUTH OF THE STORY OF NOAH
     
    Abraham – in John 8:56 “Abraham saw Jesus and rejoiced over the time when He would come”.
    JESUS CONFIRMING THE TRUTH OF ABRAHAM AND ALL THE PROMISES MADE TO ABRAHAM
     
    Moses – in John 5:45 “If you had believed Moses you would believe me, because He wrote of me”

    Jesus said, “……all scripture is about me.” ~ John 5:39 (NASV)
     
    “How foolish and slow you are to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Wasn’t it necessary for the Messiah to suffer these things and enter into his glory? The beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted for them the things concerning himself in all the Scriptures.” ~ Luke 24: 25 -27 (NASV)

    VS 26 “ At that same time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.
    Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near, right at the door. I tell You the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It is like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with their assigned talk, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back – whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he come suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: Watch!” ~ Mark 13:26-37

    “They were looking intently up into the sky when two angels appeared and spoke to them. Men of Galilee, why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” ~ Acts 1: 10-11

    Mark 13:14-27
     
    “When you see the abomination that causes desolation standing where it does not belong – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the housetop go down or enter the house to take anything out. Let no one in the field go back to get their cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women And nursing mothers! Pray that this will not take place in the winter, because those will be days of distress unequaled from the beginning, when God created the world, until now – and never to be equaled again. If the Lord had not cut shore those days, no one would have survive. But for the sake of the elect, whom he has chosen, he has shortened them. At that time if anyone says to you, LOOK, THERE IS THE CHRIST OR LOOK THERE HE IS, DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform sings and wonders and will deceive the elect. SO BE ON YOUR GUARD; I HAVE TOLD YOU EVERYTHING AHEAD OF TIME. But in those days, following that distress, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.” ~ Mark 13:14-27 (NASV)
     
    “I have made known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still To come. I say: My purpose will stand and I will do all that I please” ~ Isaiah 46 (NASV)

    “I saw heaven standing open and therebefore me was a white horse, whose rider is called faithful and true…His eyes were like blazing fire on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself…His eyes are like blazing fire, And on his head many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself… Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations….On his robe and on his thigh He has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS" ~ Revelation 19:11-16 (NASV)
