Proverbs 9:17-18 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.

"I believed in once saved always saved", says the greedy of heart and sinful "professing Christian". Sin is Death-Darkness- "The wrath of God!"

*THE LORD'S BANNER*

HOLINESS-PEACE!__If the Son therefore shall make you free {from sin}, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36) Then said Jesus to those ...which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, {to be holy..free from this worlds lust and love for it} then are ye my disciples indeed; (John 8:31)
For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (Romans 2:28-29) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12-13)"THE ONLY JEW GOD LOVES"

Book of Job Print E-mail


 

Job 35:5-8  Look unto the heavens, and see; and behold the clouds which are higher than thou. If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him? If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand? Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man.

 

Job 35:10-13  But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night; Who teacheth us more than the beasts of the earth, and maketh us wiser than the fowls of heaven? There they cry, but none giveth answer, because of the pride of evil men. Surely God will not hear vanity, neither will the Almighty regard it.

 

Job 35:14-16  Although thou sayest thou shalt not see him, yet judgment is before him; therefore trust thou in him. But now, because it is not so, he hath visited in his anger; yet he knoweth it not in great extremity:  Therefore doth Job open his mouth in vain; he multiplieth words without knowledge.

 

Job 36:1-4  Elihu also proceeded, and said, Suffer me a little, and I will shew thee that I have yet to speak on God's behalf.  I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker. For truly my words shall not be false: he [Elihu] that is perfect in knowledge is with thee.{should a disciple in humbleness and Godly confidence in His maker be so bold as he has been taught by His Father in heaven? ABSOLUTELY!!}

 

Job 36:5-10  Behold, God is mighty, and despiseth not any: he is mighty in strength and wisdom.  He preserveth not the life of the wicked: but giveth right to the poor.  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. And if they be bound in fetters, and be holden in cords of affliction; Then he sheweth them their work, and their transgressions that they have exceeded. He openeth also their ear to discipline, and commandeth that they return from iniquity.

 

Job 36:11-14  If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge.  But the hypocrites in heart heap up wrath: they cry not [to cry for deliverance; cry unto the Lord] when he bindeth them. They die in youth, and their life is among the unclean.

 

Job 36:15-17  He delivereth the poor [afflicted who have cried unto the Lord to be delivered out of] in his affliction, and openeth their ears [hear] in oppression. 

 

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

 

But thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked: judgment and justice take hold on thee. [he is a hypocrite and self righteous so far. He is wondering why this happened to him since he did all these good works and eschewed evil. No faith in God just his works.]

 

Job is arguing about why God has done this to him and its not “God giventh and God taketh away.” Its actually God disciplining iniquity and man taketh away because of man’s sin.”

Heb 11.6 sums up why.

 

Job 36:18  [Elihu continues] Because there is wrath, beware lest he take thee away with his stroke: then a great ransom cannot deliver thee.

 

Job 36:19-20  Will he esteem thy riches? no, not gold, nor all the forces of strength. Desire not the night, when people are cut off in their place.

 

This right here is a very important verse. I believe this sums up book of Job.

Job 36:21  Take heed, regard not iniquity: for this hast thou chosen rather than affliction.

 

Job 36:22-26  Behold, God exalteth by his power: who teacheth like him? Who hath enjoined him his way? or who can say, Thou hast wrought iniquity? Remember that thou magnify his work, which men behold. Every man may see it; man may behold it afar off. Behold, God is great, and we know him not, neither can the number of his years be searched out.

 

            JOB DOES NOT TRUST GOD FOR HE DOES NOT KNOW WHO GOD IS. HE IS TRUSTING IN RIGHTS AND WRONGS WITH OUT KNOWLEDGE OF GOD.

JOB IS TRUSTING HIS OWN RIGHTEOUSNESS ACCORDING TO HIS STANDARDS THAT HE KNOWS OF GOD. HE REALLY DOES NOT DELIGHT IN NOR KNOW GOD.

 

Job 34:5  For Job hath said, I am righteous: and God hath taken away my judgment.

[WRONG, JOB!]

 

God isn’t sending Elihu to his three friends but to Job who wants to know and has a heart wanting to serve God. He knows there is a God but doesn’t know Him, on purpose or ignorantly who knows. Look at Paul in the new testament how he persecuted the church in his zeal to serve Jehovah God so because of his zeal and righteousness in the law Jesus appeared to him to set him straight. Paul obeyed and woke up just like Job.

 

You want a religious form or the truth of God? Which does God want for His believers?

There are numerous instances where God comes when kings and leaders and people are indifferent to Him but trying to do what is right then God straightens them out knowing their hearts as they repent unto Him for deliverance acknowledging their iniquity in humbleness and of a contrite heart. Job is showing How compassionate and right is the Lord.  Book of Job should be remembered in Glorifying God for His mercy and deliverance as one seeks out to trust God and not justify oneself over God in faith.

 

**The theme is that a person should be crying out in faith to trust God for deliverance, in humbleness and being of a contrite heart, according to who God is , in faith,and what He says of Himself and not telling, or whinning, to God about how good “me” is and wondering why this has happened to good “OH” righteous “me”.**

 

Job to me is a book denominations use to justify themselves to stay in sin and unbelief, rather then God in Faith in the finished Work of the cross of Jesus Christ. It’s a pillar of self righteous religion that needs to be pulled down by “Samson”- the word of God so Faith may arise.

 

Now all of us that take the word of God in spirit and in truth to the people, or a person, for their deliverance in any place in the world, town, city, state, anywhere, I mean anywhere, etc are “Elihu’s” sent of God to deliver the souls however God lays it on your heart in your spirit, as you are faithful to Him in walking in it, to give out His word.

Believe it!!!!!

 

 

As you can see grammar isn’t great. I try.

Some information is repetitive but that’s good.
