John Whitcomb: November 5, 2018

Dr. John Whitcomb begins a very special series from the book of Job this week on “Encounter God’s Truth”—helping us prepare to rejoice in this month of Thanksgiving. Our title, “Thankful—In Spite of Trouble,” sums up the life of this Old Testament pre-patriarchal character named Job. Host Wayne Shepherd expands on this week’s message, asking Dr. Whitcomb about the things that Job received back from God later, at the end of the book, after he was afflicted—inquiring whether this speaks about Job’s material possessions only, and how it relates to Job’s children and the years of his life. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end, and it teaches us to give thanks—at this season and throughout the entire year. It is our hope that this series will be beneficial to you, helping you to have a blessed and memorable Thanksgiving season.
