The Messiah in the Old Testament (Job)
 - from Pastor Rob
Magnified Bible Verse
        Throughout this year I am examining a book called The Messiah in the Old Testament by Walter Kaiser, of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. He attempts to illustrate how OT texts show that the Messiah, God's anointed savior, has been a part of God's plan from the start. In this installment, I share Kaiser's observations from the book of Job.
         In my own opinion, Job should be treated as a post-exilic work. I believe Job is a parable and possible the compilation of different works. The events of the book may be rooted in a historic person named Job, but the greater message of the work speaks to how reads engage with God during times of immense suffering. It is a mistake to too quickly say, "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord." Yes, Job says that (1:21), but then he spends many chapters expressing extreme bitterness. One who claims Job suffered with dignity and never indicted is one who stopped reading after chapter 2.
Reminders About Giving
HillSong offers electronic giving as a way to automate regular tithes/offerings (i.e. weekly, monthly, etc.) or make one-time donations to the general fund and special offerings. Electronic giving is convenient and provides much-needed donation consistency to support ministries, missions and operating costs of the church. Making electronic donations is totally under your control and fully secured. Go to the HillSong website at any time to set up an automatic donation plan, change your donation plan, make a one-time donation or view your online donation history. As you contemplate future contributions, please consider electronic giving. Additional information is available here.
Of course, you can always make cash or check contributions. To ensure your donations are accurately recorded for tax purposes, follow these tips.
Note: All checks should be made payable to "HillSong Church," unless directed otherwise.
  1. Place your donation in an offering envelope provided by the church - write your full name legibly on the outside of the envelope. Envelopes are in the back pocket of the sanctuary chairs.
  2. Please fill in the amount and the category on the envelope face--if the category is left blank, your donation will be assumed to be a General Fund donation.
  3. Use separate envelopes and please write separate checks -- if you are making donations to the General Fund and a SPECIALS (i. e. Helping Hand, etc.) fund designation. This helps the money counters sort and deposit your donation quickly and accurately.
