“Job Opened His Mouth…”

September 17, 2019

“Job Opened His Mouth…”

Blessings folk!

Job’s friends had arrived.
That sat with him for seven days in silence.
Job’s pain was intense.

Job then broke the silence.
Here is part of his lament…

Job 3:1-12

Afterward Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth.

And Job said,

“Let the day perish on which I was to be born,
And the night which said, ‘A boy is conceived.’

“May that day be darkness;
Let not God above care for it,
Nor light shine on it.

“Let darkness and black gloom claim it;
Let a cloud settle on it;
Let the blackness of the day terrify it.

“As for that night, let darkness seize it;
Let it not rejoice among the days of the year;
Let it not come into the number of the months.

“Behold, let that night be barren;
Let no joyful shout enter it.

“Let those curse it who curse the day,
Who are prepared to rouse Leviathan.

“Let the stars of its twilight be darkened;
Let it wait for light but have none,
And let it not see the breaking dawn;

Because it did not shut the opening of my mother’s womb,
Or hide trouble from my eyes.

“Why did I not die at birth,
Come forth from the womb and expire?

“Why did the knees receive me,
And why the breasts, that I should suck?

Ever felt/feel like this?

We will see the balance of the lament later…

“Three Friends”

September 16, 2019

“Three Friends”

Blessings folk!

Job’s physical stuff was destroyed or captured.
Job’s children were dead.
Job was covered with boils.
Job’s wife was nagging…”curse God and die!”

Then…

Job 2:11-13

Now when Job’s three friends heard of all this adversity that had come upon him, they came each one from his own place, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite; and they made an appointment together to come to sympathize with him and comfort him.

When they lifted up their eyes at a distance and did not recognize him, they raised their voices and wept. And each of them tore his robe and they threw dust over their heads toward the sky.

Then they sat down on the ground with him for seven days and seven nights with no one speaking a word to him, for they saw that his pain was very great.


Job’s three friends heard what had occurred.
They knew of Job’s situation.

They came to visit.
A rather formal process…

  • Came together from their varied locations
  • Made an appointment

They came to sympathize.
They came to comfort.

When they saw him, from a distance, they were distraught.
They did not recognize Job.
They raised their voices and wept.
They tore their robes.
They threw dust over their heads.
All signs of mourning.

They joined Job in mourning and pain.

They sat on the ground with him.
Seven days.
Seven night.
Silent.
No one spoke a word.

Why?

Because they saw that his pain was very great.

We see the depths of Job’s pain.
We see the depths of his friends concern.

“Curse God and Die”

September 15, 2019

“Curse God and Die”

Blessings folk!

The Lord has given Job “to the power of” the satan…the adversary, the accuser.

Watch what happens…

Job 2:6-10
So the LORD said to Satan,
“Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life.”

Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.

And he took a potsherd to scrape himself while he was sitting among the ashes.

Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast your integrity? Curse God and die!”

But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God and not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

Remember what the satan had said?
“If you attack his body, he will curse You…”

The satan smote Job with sore boils.
From head to sole.

What was Job’s reaction?
He was scraping off boils…ugh.
He sat among the ashes…as sign of uncleanness.

But, then we see more.
Job’s wife.
Such a lovely woman.

You did see her question?
“Do you still hold fast your integrity?”
She meant…
Do you still not blame God?
Do you still not find fault?
Do you still believe that the Lord gives/takes?
Sounds to me as if she were embarrassed by him?

Then, the statement.
“Curse God and die”.

I love Job’s response.
You speak as the foolish women speak.

Job “doubles-down”
Shall we accept good from God and not accept adversity?

Job rested in the Lord.
In all his misery.
In all the adversity.

He did not sin with his lips.

Do we?

“Skin For Skin”

September 14, 2019

“Skin For Skin”

Blessings!

Though he had lost much, Job did not sin.
He did not turn against God.
He did not blame God.

Job 1:22
Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.

The account continues…

Job 2:1-6

Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them to present himself before the LORD.

The LORD said to Satan,
“Where have you come from?”
Then Satan answered the LORD and said,
“From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

The LORD said to Satan,
“Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man fearing God and turning away from evil. And he still holds fast his integrity, although you incited Me against him to ruin him without cause.”

Satan answered the LORD and said,
“Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.

“However, put forth Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh;
he will curse You to Your face.”

So the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your power, only spare his life.”

We see the same gathering as earlier.
The sons of God are presenting themselves before the Lord.
The satan does likewise.

The Lord initiates the conversation.
The Lord asks the satan where he had been.
The Lord knew.
The purpose of the question?
To give the satan opportunity to tell?
To let the satan know that the Lord knows all?

Then the Lord asks…
Have you considered Job?

Of course He knew the answer.

The satan had sought to destroy Job by killing Job’s children and taking/destroying his possessions.

Yet, Job did not sin.

The satan’s response this time?

“Skin for skin…”

The satan was saying “touch his body, attack him physically…he will curse You”.

The Lord’s response?

He is in you power, only spare his life.

The satan has the power to take life…if God allows.

There is more to all this than we know…

“The Lord Gives. The Lord Takes.”

September 13, 2019

“The Lord Gives. The Lord Takes.”

Blessings folk!

Job was in mourning.
His children had died.
His animals had been stolen.
His stuff was destroyed.

Yet, still he worshipped…

Job 1:20
Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head,
and he fell to the ground and worshiped.


Wonder what Job was thinking?
Wonder how Job felt?

We do not need to wonder.
The Word tells us.

Job 1:21-22
He said,
“Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
And naked I shall return there.
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.


Familiar, huh?
But now we know the context.

Job was acknowledging the truth of life.
We come into the world naked…having nothing, “owning” nothing.
We will return the same way…can not “take it with us”.

Job also proclaimed that it is the Lord that gives.
It is the Lord that takes away.

His response? “Blessed be the name of the Lord!”

He blessed the Lord.
He did not sin.
He did not blame God.

May we do likewise.

“While He Was Still Speaking”

September 12 2019

“While He Was Still Speaking”

Blessings folk!

The satan whined before God…”Job only follows you because you protect him…remove the hedge of protection and he will curse you to your face.”

God said “ok, touch his possessions, yet leave him alone”…

Job 1:12
Then the LORD said to Satan,
“Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.”
So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.


We continue…

Job 1:13-19

Now on the day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

a messenger came to Job and said,
“The oxen were plowing and the donkeys feeding beside them,

and the Sabeans attacked and took them.
They also slew the servants with the edge of the sword,
and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, another also came and said,
“The fire of God fell from heaven and burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, another also came and said,
“The Chaldeans formed three bands and made a raid on the camels and took them and slew the servants with the edge of the sword, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

While he was still speaking, another also came and said,
“Your sons and your daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,

and behold, a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people and they died, and I alone have escaped to tell you.”

Tragic horror all at the same time.

  • Attack of the Sabeans…took animals, killed of servants
  • Fire of God from heaven (lightning?)…burned sheep and servants…consumed
  • Attack of the Chadeans…raided camels, killed servants
  • Great wind kills daughters and sons

Job learns of each in rapid fashion…”while he was still speaking”

There is no imagining the shock.

Job’s reaction?

Job 1:20

Then Job arose and tore his robe and shaved his head,
and he fell to the ground and worshiped.

Job arose.
Job tore his robe.
Job shaved his head.
Job was in mourning.

How did he mourn?
After arising, he fell to the ground.
He worshiped.

In the most difficult of times, he worshiped.

May we do likewise.

“9/11 - Know the Truth”

September 11, 2019

“9/11 - Know the Truth”

Blessings folk!!

A little side-bar today.

“9/11” has become a day of remembering and reflection.

Good.

But, beware.

Much of what we think is “true” is not.
Much what we think is “fact” is not.
Much evil is still afoot.
The evil is not limited to what/where we think.
Many of the evil perpetrators are still about.

So, do this.

Learn the truth.

Remember what the Lord said…

John 8:31-32

So Jesus was saying to those Jews who had believed Him,
“If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine;

and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”

Believe in Jesus.
Continue in His Word.
Be His disciple.
Then…
You will know the truth.
The truth will set you free.

He will lead us to truth in all things.

If you are interested in “9/11”, then start with “building 7” and “nano-thermite”.

Believe not the lie.
Fear not the truth.

“All That He Has Is In Your Power”

September 10, 2019

“All That He Has Is In Your Power”

Blessings folk!

The satan was “in the face of God.”
He was irritated.
Mad.

Job 1:8-11

The LORD said to Satan,
“Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth,
a blameless and upright man,
fearing God and turning away from evil.”

Then Satan answered the LORD, “Does Job fear God for nothing?

“Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side?
You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

“But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.”


He challenged God to remove the “hedge of protection” about Job and his family.

What was God’s response?

He agreed!
To a degree.

Job 1:12
Then the LORD said to Satan,
“Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.”
So Satan departed from the presence of the LORD.


All of Job’s “possessions”…all he had…was in now in the power of the satan.
Only, the satan could not put forth his hands against Job personally.

The satan departed from the presence of God.

Wonder what he did next?

We do not need to wonder.
The Word tells us.
We will see.

For today, know that sometimes things happen for which we have no explanation.
Job was totally unaware of what was occurring in the unseen realm in the midst of elohim.
He had not clue as to what was about to happen.

Hummm…sounds like us.

The Word: Episode 1044 Hebrews 9:18-28

“Put Forth Your Hand…”

September 9, 2019

“Put Forth Your Hand…”

Blessings folk!

The satan - the accuser - was irritated.

God had asked him if he had “considered Job…”.

The satan was being revealed.
Of course he had “considered Job”.
He had tried to “get to him”.
How do we know?
Because the satan states “…have you not made a hedge about him..?”

Read to see what happens…

Job 1:8-11

The LORD said to Satan,
“Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth,
a blameless and upright man,
fearing God and turning away from evil.”

Then Satan answered the LORD, “Does Job fear God for nothing?

“Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side?
You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.

“But put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has; he will surely curse You to Your face.”

The satan states that God had blessed the work of Job’s hands.
Job’s possessions increase in the land.
The inference is that Job was only blameless, upright fearing of God and rejector of evil because of “what he got from God.”

The satan challenges Job’s faith…and God.
The satan tells God to “put forth Your hand now and touch all that he has”, note again how nothing could touch Job without God’s permission.

The satan was convinced that Job would curse God…to His face.

Well, that is intense.

Not the “nice, cozy, fluffy, “cloud-based with angel scene” that is often associated with “heaven”.

How does God respond?
We will see.

How do we respond?
Do we trust the circumstance?
Do we trust the Lord?

“A Hedge…”

September 8, 2019

“A Hedge…”

Blessings folk!

God asked the satan if he had considered Job?

Job 1:8
The LORD said to Satan,
“Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth,
a blameless and upright man,
fearing God and turning away from evil.”

The satan’s response?

Job 1:9
Then Satan answered the LORD,
“Does Job fear God for nothing?

The satan seems a little put out…testy.

Wonder why?

Next verse…

Job 1:10a
“Have You not made a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side?…

Ah hah!

This is the answer to God’s question…”have you considered My servant Job?”

The satan had considered him.
The satan had tried to “get to him” already.

How do I know?

Because of his initial response to God…”Does Job fear God for nothing?”

The satan had discovered a “hedge about” Job that protected Him.

The Lord’s protection was upon him!!
About Job.
About his house.
About all he had.
On every side.

The satan…the accuser…was accusing God of protection.
The satan was accusing Job of faithfulness only due to “what God did for him”.

“Have You Considered…”

September 7, 2019

“Have You Considered…”

Blessings folk!

The sons of God presented themselves before the Lord.
The Satan came also.

The Lord questioned The Satan.

Job 1:6-7

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?”
Then Satan answered the LORD and said,
“From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”


Then, the Lord does this…

Job 1:8
The LORD said to Satan,
“Have you considered My servant Job?
For there is no one like him on the earth,
a blameless and upright man,
fearing God and turning away from evil.”


How did the Lord describe Job?
As we have seen…

  • Blameless
  • Upright
  • Fearing God
  • Turning away from sin
With an additional thought…”there is no one like him on earth”.
The Lord calls Job “my servant”.

What is the Lord doing?
What did He mean by “consider My servant Job”?

We will see.
God’s ways are not our ways.
His thoughts are not our thoughts.

Isa 55:8
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

“Sons of God. The Satan”

September 6, 2019

“Sons of God. The Satan”

Blessings folk!

We have seen that Job was blameless, upright, feared God and turned away from evil.
He continually interceded for his children.
He was a good man.

Continue reading…

Job 1:6-7

Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.

The LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?”
Then Satan answered the LORD and said,
“From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

This is a really interesting encounter.
We will examine it…slowly.

“There was a day…”
We do not know when.
It simple occurred.

“The sons of God…”
The Hebrew word for “God” is “elohim”.
It refers to a realm of existence…to “divine beings”.
“Elohim” is used to describe many different things in the Word.
There are many Elohim.
There is only one “Most High God”…Elohim of Elohim.
There are “human beings”…we are.
There are “divine beings”…

The “sons of God” presented themselves before the Lord.
Satan came among them.
We miss something in English translations.
In Hebrew “satan” has an article - “The Satan”
It means “the adversary”.
It does not always necessarily refer to the one we call “satan”, but the idea is the same.

This idea of “The Satan” carries through Job 1-2 and in other portions of the Word.

The Adversary is before the Lord.

Note the Lord initiates the conversation…the line of thought.
The Lord asked The Satan “from where do you come?”

This was not an inquiry for the purpose of gaining information.
The Lord knew.

The Satan’s response?
“From roaming about on the earth and walking around on it.”

This is important.

Know this for today.

There is much more to these passages/accounts than we know.
Much more that will enlighten the Word in a way we have never experienced before.

“Job of Uz”

September 5, 2019

“Job of Uz”

Blessings folk!

Job was a good man.
Blameless.
Upright.
Fearing God.

Job 1:1
There was a man in the land of Uz whose name was Job;
and that man was blameless, upright, fearing God and turning away from evil.

This is not saying that Job was perfect.
It is saying that he turned away from evil.

Job was wealthy.
Blessed by the Lord.

Job 1:2-3
Seven sons and three daughters were born to him.

His possessions also were 7,000 sheep, 3,000 camels, 500 yoke of oxen, 500 female donkeys, and very many servants; and that man was the greatest of all the men of the east.

Job was rich in family.
Job was rich in stuff.
Job was the greatest of al the men of the east.

Job knew what was important.

Job 1:4-5
His sons used to go and hold a feast in the house of each one on his day,
and they would send and invite their three sisters to eat and drink with them.

When the days of feasting had completed their cycle,
Job would send and consecrate them,
rising up early in the morning and offering burnt offerings according to the number of them all; for Job said, “Perhaps my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts.”
Thus Job did continually.


After the various feasts (birthday parties!?) Job would send for his children and consecrate them.
He offered sacrifices on their behalf.
He interceded for his children.

May we do likewise.
May we intercede.
May we be…
Blameless.
Upright.
Fearing God.

“The Lord Lives…”

September 4, 2019

“The Lord Lives…”

Blessings folk!

Let us now look at the last part of the great song of deliverance that David declared unto the Lord.

As we have seen, David…
  • Declares attributes of God
  • Declares what God has done
  • Declares what he has done

2 Sa 22:47-51

“The LORD lives, and blessed be my rock;
And exalted be God, the rock of my salvation,

The God who executes vengeance for me,
And brings down peoples under me,

Who also brings me out from my enemies;
You even lift me above those who rise up against me;
You rescue me from the violent man.

“Therefore I will give thanks to You, O LORD, among the nations,
And I will sing praises to Your name.

“He is a tower of deliverance to His king,
And shows lovingkindness to His anointed,
To David and his descendants forever.”

Rejoice in these truths…

  • The Lord lives
  • The Lord is the Rock of 0ur salvation
  • The Lord executes vengeance for us
  • The Lord will bring down people, bring us out from our enemies
  • The Lord lifts us up
  • The Lord rescues us from the violent
  • The Lord is a Tower of Deliverance
  • The Lord shows lovingkindness to His anointed

Our response:
  • Bless the Rock of our salvation
  • Exalt Him
  • Give thanks to the Lord…among the nations
  • Sing praise to Him

With all our breath.
With every moment.
Without ceasing.

“…From the Contentions of My People…”

September 3, 2019

“…From the Contentions of My People…”

Blessings folk!!

The Lord had given David victory over his enemies.
The Lord had strengthened him.
The Lord had empowered him.

But, David had other problems.
Not from without.
From within.

Watch what David says…

2 Sa 22:44-46

“You have also delivered me from the contentions of my people;
You have kept me as head of the nations;
A people whom I have not known serve me.

“Foreigners pretend obedience to me;
As soon as they hear, they obey me.

“Foreigners lose heart,
And come trembling out of their fortresses.

David had problems with his own people!
Imagine!!
Reading the biblical account we see some of these problems.

David declares that the Lord delivered him from these contentions.

It was the Lord who placed and kept David as the head of nations.
Note: nations!
Not just Israel.

People that David did not know…the nations…served him.

David knew the truth.

He knew they pretended obedience to him.
He acknowledged their obedience, yet he knew their heart.
He knew they had lost heart.
He knew they trembled before him.
His enemies came out of their fortresses…can also be translated “fastnessess”…
They came in fear…after seeking their gods, etc.

David knew.

He knew that the Lord was his source of deliverance.

Do we?

“You Have…I…”

Blessings folk!

David continues his song of thanks unto the Lord for His deliverance.

So much detail.

Pay attention.
Give heed.

Watch what the Lord did…

2 Sa 22:40-43

“For You have girded me with strength for battle;
You have subdued under me those who rose up against me.

“You have also made my enemies turn their backs to me,
And I destroyed those who hated me.

“They looked, but there was none to save;
Even to the LORD, but He did not answer them.

“Then I pulverized them as the dust of the earth;
I crushed and stamped them as the mire of the streets.

What did the Lord do for David?

  • Girded him for strength in battle
  • Subdued those who rose against him
  • Made his enemies flee “turn their backs to” him

What did the enemies do?
  • Looked for help to save them
  • Looked even to the Lord!…He did not answer them.

What did David do?
  • Destroyed those who hated him
  • Pulverized them as dust
  • Crushed them
  • Stamped them as mire in the streets

The Lord gave victory to David over the enemies from without…those outside of David’s kingdom, people, etc.

David was empowered by the Lord for victory.
He moved within this power.

We have the same power.
Those who are true believers have the Power of the Most High.
The Lord Himself dwells within us.

Now, live as David did by the power of the Lord.

September 1, 2019

“You. I.”

Blessings folk!

David did not just “sit back” and let God do all these things.

David participated.

Much to be gleaned here.

The Lord moves…
In us.
Through us.
Sometimes, in spite of us.

2 Sa 22:37-39

“You enlarge my steps under me,
And my feet have not slipped.

“I pursued my enemies and destroyed them,
And I did not turn back until they were consumed.

“And I have devoured them and shattered them, so that they did not rise;
And they fell under my feet.

The Lord kept David’s feet from slipping.
The Lord enlarged/guided David’s steps.

What did David do?

Pursued his enemies.
Destroyed his enemies.
Did not turn back from his enemies until they were consumed.
Devoured his enemies.
Shattered his enemies.
He did this so that they would not rise again.

Shocking language to us.

Boldness of the Lord through those who will believe.
