Poetic books of the OT

Recommended Posts

Hi friends,

 

A while back I was discussing doctrine and was asked to provide a text to prove a claim I made.  When the scripture was provided the response was, oh that's just a poetic book.  My question is are these books just for inspirational purposes?  From what I read in 2 Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.  Am I reading too much into this?

Funny how that works, isn't it?

What was the claim you made. God-breathed means God-breathed.

Seems to me you answered your own question from what you read.  Yes, I think your reading too much into it as "it seems" you already have your mind made up before the discussion even starts.

Well most of you know that I am an sda so the claims are usually with doctrine like the importance of the law God, state of the dead, sabbath, etc.

      Please pray for Elise.  She had a job but lost it she said because she was late too many times.  She needs one right away and they have raised her rent and she says she has no money for even a bus ride.    She is not a christian.   That is her number one need is the Lord.  She was going to go to church today with me but she cancelled.

      Judges 6:12-16 12 When the angel of the Lord appeared to Gideon, he said, “The Lord is with you, mighty warrior.” 13 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the Lord is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the Lord bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the Lord has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” 14 The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?” 15 “Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” 16 The Lord answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”
      I, as well as Gideon in verse 13 and other brothers/sisters in the faith (Job, Habbakuk,etc.), even Jesus (My God, my God why have you forsaken me?), have questioned why bad things have happened to us.  Many nonbelievers too don’t understand why bad things happen to their version of “good” people.  Job’s purpose in his trials was to prove his faith in God genuine, grow him closer to God, and he was blessed with far more than he had before his trials began.  Habbakuk asked God why evil was happening and later God shows him and he rejoices I believe because his question was coming from a sincere heart.  Attacking the character of God because He allowed something we deem as bad to happen is a sin because then we are questioning God in a sense that says we know better, which we don’t.  In the above passage God shows that He is for us, and it’s in His time, and His strength to show His power.  He has a reason for even the bad things that happen to us.  In the case above it was to show His deliverance of Gideon and Israel from the oppressive Midianites.   Romans 8:28 is a reminder of this, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."  There is purpose in the difficult things we go through.

      Hi guys, I was wondering what the meaning of ‘you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies’. Any ideas?
