A Truly Wise Man is Inspired by God

Job 32:8-9 (KJB) But there is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding. 9 Great men are not always wise: neither do the aged understand judgment.

Inside every man is the Spirit of God.  In a man who does not personally know God, His Spirit lies dormant, waiting to be awakened unto new spiritual life.  In a man who has been quickened alive God’s spiritual essence ...

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 ...

Leanness and Many Wrinkles

Job 16:8 (KJB)   And thou hast filled me with wrinkles, which is a witness against me: and my leanness rising up in me beareth witness to my face.

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.

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

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 ...
