So dishwashing dirge, have you ever poured dishwashing to turgeon into the washing machine? No, pastor, you don't do that. Yeah, found that out years ago when I was seeing the living in the parsonage. You didn't have a lot of income at the time, trying to save some money and didn't want to go...

...and buy some washing turgeon for the washing machine. So I just saw the dishwashing to turgeon. I thought, well, let me just pour a little to that in there. So poor a little of that in there and well, Fifteen, twenty thirty minutes later I come in there and there were suns all over the board, seeped up out of the washing machine and it was everywhere. Why? Because this wasn't made for a washing machine. Unlesson I learned that you need to use things for what they were created for, what they were made for, and not otherwise. Lesson that Ella would teach Joe. We're continuing our study through the Book of Job Wearing job chapter thirty two through thirty four. Today we're going to look specifically at job chapter thirty four and verse Thirty Three. Ella Pastor, who is Ella when we've studied lap...

...as Bill Dad so far? Is Ella Hello, who is younger than all four of job and his other three friends, and he's the wisest of them all. Job and his three friends have been carrying on these conversations for days. Joe, three friends of an argument for a work, salvation and jobs, then saying God's not fair, God's not good by letting me go through this. And Ella, who shows up and he starts taking each one of them all. He says, you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong. You start dealing with Joe and Elihu would say to Joe, ears were made for hearing. Why don't you listen to God? Specifically, ears were made for hearing, God, why don't you listen to me?...

Job Thirty four and thirty verse thirty three. Should God then reward you on your terms and you refused to repent. He will you pose is a most pressing question to job. He was much younger than job and his friends. However, he blasts them all. He confronts the man of God with truth. Up to this point, job has proclaimed his innocence and stated he has done no wrong to bring about this tribe, which he's right. He's done no wrong to bring about this trial. He's wrong to state he's innocent. Job's friends convinced that of war, of a work salvation, tell job to do right and God will bless him. Job Answers his friends by saying he has done right, and thus queries if God is good. Hella, who shows up, and he's enraged both by the idea of a work salvation. You can't get to God by words. He's enraged at such a thought,...

...even as Paul and the New Testament was, and he's also enraged the idea of God not being good. God is always good, no matter what it seems or appears to say otherwise, is blesphemous, and thus he confronts them all. His words are Peter Piercing as he speaks of a mediator, Joe, Chapter Thirty two in Verse Twenty Three, a mediator, one who would go between God and man, who happens to be a ransome, a mediator who would pay for men. Said what incredible inside, if you thought job had inside, Ella, who has incredible insight, looking forward to one who would be God and man and would pay a ransom for man sin to God,...

...the father, that we might be saved, and he explains to the for that when one repents, want to say so beautiful lecture that Ella, who gives all present. He begs them to use their ears for the reason God gave them ears. See it there. In verse three, two tests words. You use your ears for the reason God gave you the ears, to test words, to see if they're of God or not, to see if they conform to the word of God or not. His message is clear. In comparison to man, job is righteous. Nevertheless jokes. You're a good person, especially when you compare yourself to some of your neighbors, some...

...of those around you. Compared to some of those, you are righteous. You and I are sinners. We see it righteous compared to other humans, but when we see the quality of God, where sinners. Thus elahu explain sus. No, one is righteous like God. Ourcn has separated us from God. No matter how good I have been, I deserve separation from God and heaven for all eternity. Anything short of an eternity in hell should produce gratitude. I don't get what I deserve. I deserve an eternity in hell. If I don't get that, I need to be grateful. The trials off I face in this life should never, ever, ever, calls me...

...the question God's goodness. His goodness causes him to forever remove evil, including mine. Don't you dare question because of the trials that are going on in our lives, if God is good, how blasphemous that is. Of course he's good. He's so good that he's removed evil from our lives on the cross of Jesus Christ forever so that we can go to heaven, although we deserve hell and no amount of good words can deliver us. When we repent and trust in Jesus, the ransom and mediator, then we're saved from the path. What incredible true words. It's the Gospel he's sharing with we have a mediator, he's a ransom. You don't deserve to go to heaven, you deserve to be separated. If you'll repeat, God will deliver you from the pit. It's the Gospel he's sharing. And even the trials in this...

...life do not indicate God is not good. Rather, these trials are opportunities for us to have faith in God's goodness in spite of the trials. To believe God is good when life is good demand's no faith whatsoever. I'll say that again. To believe God is good when life is good, the man's no faith whatsoever. But to believe God is good when life is bad, that's faith. Believing that God is good by faith, no matter what the circumstances are. If we have ears, we should listen to Ella, who's wisdom. More importantly, we should listen to God. Isn't he who formed...

...the ears, worthy of being heard, and here's wisdom? When trials come, let us never question God's goodness in allowing the trial. Rather, let us praise him that he is good, that he is our mediator and somehow, through this trial, goodness will occur. As Romans a twenty eight cents, all things work together for good. All things, the trials, the difficulties, work together for good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose. Use Your ears to hear God's Word Today. Those trials God will use for good, he says. Well, I hope you're enjoying our study through Joe. We're getting near the end. We have two more studies in the book of Job. Tomorrow will be in job thirty five through...

...thirty seven and then the following day Joe Thirty eight through forty two. So I'm encourage you to go ahead and read ahead and we'll be back tomorrow. But let me pray with you before we go. Father, thank you again for reminding us that he who formed the year is worthy of the time it takes to hear. Thank you for forming our years and our eyes. Thank you that you formed US primarily to have that relationship with you and then with others, to love the Lord, our God, with all our hearts, soul in mind and love our neighbors as ourselves. Helpless, father, to use these ears to hear you by faith, believing matter what. Thank you again from joining us is the e back in here tomorrow.
