Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17
Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place
Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table [should be] full of fatness.

Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table [should be] full of fatness.

Job 36:1 – 36:33

  1 Elihu also proceeded, and said,
  2 Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that [I have] yet to speak on God’s behalf.
  3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker.
  4 For truly my words [shall] not [be] false: he that is perfect in knowledge [is] with thee.
  5 Behold, God [is] mighty, and despiseth not [any]: [he is] mighty in strength [and] wisdom.
  6 He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.
  7 He withdraweth not his eyes from the righteous: but with kings [are they] on the throne; yea, he doth establish them for ever, and they are exalted.
  8 And if [they be] bound in fetters, [and] be holden in cords of affliction;
  9 Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded.
  10 He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.
  11 If they obey and serve [him], they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
  12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.
  13 But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not when he bindeth them.
  14 They die in youth, and their life [is] among the unclean.
  15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression.
  16 Even so would he have removed thee out of the strait into a broad place, where there is no straitness; and that which should be set on thy table [should be] full of fatness.
  17 But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold [on thee].
  18 Because [there is] wrath, [beware] lest he take thee away with [his] stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.
  19 Will he esteem thy riches? [no], not gold, nor all the forces of strength.
  20 Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.
  21 Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.
  22 Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him?
  23 Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity?
  24 Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold.
  25 Every man may see it; man may behold [it] afar off.
  26 Behold, God [is] great, and we know [him] not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.
  27 For he maketh small the drops of water: they pour down rain according to the vapour thereof:
  28 Which the clouds do drop [and] distil upon man abundantly.
  29 Also can [any] understand the spreadings of the clouds, [or] the noise of his tabernacle?
  30 Behold, he spreadeth his light upon it, and covereth the bottom of the sea.
  31 For by them judgeth he the people; he giveth meat in abundance.
  32 With clouds he covereth the light; and commandeth it [not to shine] by [the cloud] that cometh betwixt.
  33 The noise thereof sheweth concerning it, the cattle also concerning the vapour.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
