Job Had Eternal Hope

Job 2:4-6 (KJB)   And Satan answered the LORD, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.  5 But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.  6 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

Satan implied any man would surely give up on God when his ...

February 7th, 2017

The Beating of A “Spiritual Drum”

Job 17:6 (KJB)   He hath made me also a byword of the people; and aforetime I was as a tabret.

God allowed Job to be used an example of both great spiritual poverty and patience.

Job’s life was once beating as a tabret, or a “spiritual showcase” of sorts displaying a prosperous life of plenty many admired.  Job’s life then began to beat on another “spiritual drum” of sorts calling attention to the great power ...

Man Makes His Own Choice

February 6th, 2017

Man Makes His Own Choice

Job 8:20 (KJB)   Behold, God will not cast away a perfect man, neither will he help the evil doers.

Mankind’s choices will always reflect his own eternal destiny.  Man is either living with God or living at large in opposition to him.

Bildad comes to this very conclusion when contemplating further about the life of Job, noting that God will not judge a perfect man (like Job), or offer assistance to anyone who chooses to live ...

God is The Source

Job 28:28 (KJB)   And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

Job clearly understood that God is the source of all things.

God is the continual flowing spout of spiritual wisdom and understanding.  Job could speak of this through a personal understanding.  He faced many trials and troubles.  Job not only understood “having it all”, he understood losing everything.  Job lost his family, his ...

Job Hovered Near Death

Psalm 22:14-15 (KJB)   I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint: my heart is like wax; it is melted in the midst of my bowels.  15 My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death.

Job does not mince words in describing the dreadful and desperate condition of his physical life.  Job’s physical health ...

A Pledge with God

October 16th, 2016

A Pledge with God

I made a covenant with mine eyes; why then should I think upon a maid? (Job 31:1 KJV)

Job was a sincere man of integrity.

Job realized that his eye gate was an integral opening which led directly into his soul.

Job knew that his eye gate was an opening that affected his entire being: body, soul, and spirit.  This was not just a temporary issue but something that affects mankind on a permanent basis apart from the ...

God gives and God Takes Away

Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. (Job 1:20-21 KJV)

Godly mourning for Job involved these three things: renting his mantle, shaving his head, and finally falling down in worship ...

Christians Must Expect Heat from the Perfecting Process

February 3rd 2016

Christians Must Expect Heat From the Perfecting Process

For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe. (1 Timothy 4:10 KJV)

When seeking godliness mankind will always suffer.  This is not a speculation.  It is a certain truth for anyone who chooses to serve God.  Facing opposition in the heat of labor perfects godliness in the man or woman of God.

Godliness ...

Take Up Your Cross July 21st 2015

Are you assessing situations from your perch on “opinion Avenue” in this world?

Though thy beginning was small, yet thy latter end should greatly increase. (Job 8:7 KJV)

This scripture verse features one of Job’s friend’s Bildad speaking to him with heavy concerns about his utterly desperate situation.  Bildad equated a person having righteousness with bringing an increase in wealth of a spiritual nature that can be seen and touched in this world, He looked at Job’s situation with human ...
