"Yahoveh's second address."
"Moreover the Lord answered Job, and said,"
" "Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct
Him?" he that reproveth God, let him answer it."
were many there by Job, contending with God and blaming God for
everything that went wrong. They
blamed God for everything that happened, good or bad.
However we did not hear the name of Satan fall from their lips.
Then Job answered the Lord, and said,"
" "Behold, I
am vile; what shall I answer Thee? I will lay mine hand upon my
is finally realizing that he has opened his mouth to much already, He is
saying here, I am going to keep my mouth shut.
"Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice: but
I will proceed no further."
as one of God's elect is starting to see the sons of God all the way
back on the day that the foundations were laid for this earth age.
He is starting to understand that God had a plan that goes back
far before this earth was formed, for it was laid out in the heavens
back in the first earth age. Job
is beginning to wake up to the fact that Satan was around all the time,
and messing up his life. How
would you feel if you had gone through all that Job went through, then
come to realize the you had overlooked the works of Satan all the time?
Job is finally starting to realize who his enemy is, and that he
was here all the time. It is
always easier to blame God rather than Satan for your faults.
"Then answered the Lord unto Job out of the whirlwind, and
"Gird up thy loins now like a man: I will demand of thee,
and declare thou unto Me."
is telling Job to stand up like a man or woman of God should.
God is now going to demand an answer from Job, and Job must
declare his understanding with words from his own mouth.
one of God's elect that is exactly what we are to do in these final
days. We are to declare our
understanding of God's Word to the world, and it should be formed out of
our own mouths. If you do
not understand God's plan through His Word, than it is time that you
learn it so that you can. Job
is a type of the elect and what God is demanding of Job, He is also
demanded of His elect in our generation.
"Wilt thou also disannul My judgment? wilt thou condemn Me,
that thou mayest be righteous?"
is asking Job, Do you think that you are going to change my plan for the
ages? God is directing this straight to Job, for the others are
definitely not one of God's elect. There
is a great deal more to this that just this one statement.
God is reminding Job that he was righteous, but God asks Job, do
you think that I am going to change my plan against Satan just because
of you? If Satan temps you
and rocks you boat, that is your problem because you let him.
You didn't condemn him, Job, for Satan is part of the plan of
God, and God is not going to change that plan for one man.
Your righteousness makes no difference.
If you are not intelligent to recognize Satan by his works, than
he will mess you up.
is where our people are today, they are ignorant of the ways of Satan,
and they don't recognize Satan for the things that he does.
They don't recognize the bad spirits and negative thoughts are
not from God but from Satan. When
those negative things come into our lives, we are to order Satan and his
evil spirits out of our lives.
"Hast thou an arm like God? or canst thou thunder with a
voice like Him?"
creator did all these things, and do your thing that you can do and say
all those things that God says and does.
"Deck thyself now with majesty and excellency; and array
thyself with glory and beauty."
is telling Job to stand up and take on the rightful armor to protect
your soul that you are suppose to have on.
Paul warned us of that armor in Ephesians 6:10-20.
"Cast abroad the rage of they wrath: and behold every one
that is proud, and abase him."
we put on the armor of God, we are to sand ready for battle and get rid
of that anger. There is no
need to get all excited when things are not going right, for God's plan
will be carried out and no one is going to change that plan.
"Look on every one that is proud, and bring him low; and
tread down the wicked in their place."
those that stand proud, you bring them down and set them straight as to
My plan. Job was to set
Elihu straight and bring him off that pedestal of know-it-all.
Job was suppose to be a part of My plan, Job, so you stand up
like a man.
is aimed at you and I also, for as one of God's elect we are to be part
of the positive part of God's plan, and not on the negative side.
The world today are peddling the same dogma as Eliphaz with his
human experiences, Bildad in all his human tradition, and Zophar, the
pleasant one that proves his position by human merit.
Its time for Job to go to work, as well as God's elect in our
generation. There is nothing
new under the sun, for the same old dogma of Job's day, is facing us
"Hide them in the dust together; and bind their faces in
those that call themselves of God try to hide themselves in the dust of
this world; God is telling us: You
find them and identify them for what they are, and put the labels on
them so their faces will not be in secret.
Today the Kenites have so hidden themselves that most Christians
have no idea in the world what a Kenites is.
They don't know where they came from, and they just don't care.
Who crawls in the dust? That
was the curse that God placed on Satan, and when Satan deceived Eve in
the garden of Eden, from that union came Cain.
verse is talking about Satan's children that go about claiming to be God
chosen, when in fact they are Satan's kids, that have the mind of their
father Satan, through Cain. When
you learn to understand who the Kenites are, and that they are from
Cain, you uncover the secret of their faces, and thus understand the
"parable of the fig tree" that Jesus told us to learn.
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree;
When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth laves, ye know that
summer is nigh:"
"So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things,
know that it is near, even at the doors."
say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these
things be fulfilled."
earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away."
words are His plan, and that plan covers the entire Bible from cover to
cover. Job sort of forgot
about God's plan, about Satan and his role in that plan.
Satan's role in that plan was that Satan would crawl in the dust
of the earth all the days of his life, and that includes right up to our
"Then will I also confess unto thee that thine own right
hand can save thee."
ask yourself; Who sits at
the right hand of God the Father that is the only one that can save
thee? Is that a hard
question? Of course it is
Jesus Christ who is the only way the truth and the life eternal.
"But this Man [Jesus Christ], after He [Christ]
had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand
"From henceforth expecting till His enemies be made His
enemies are Satan, his evil spirits, and all those that are part of
Satan's realm. This time
comes on the first day of the Millennium age for all evil is removed
from the earth, Satan's angels are destroyed, and Satan is cast into the
"For by one
offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified."
offered His life a perfect sacrifice only once, that was sufficient for
all of your sins and mine, when they are repented in Jesus name.
While Jesus is at the right hand of the Father, He is our
advocate to represent us before the throne of God.
Before Jesus ascended into heaven, He gave us power over all our
enemies, Satan, the Kenites, the whole bunch of evil doers.
"And He said unto them, "I beheld Satan as lightning
fall from heave." "
"Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any
means hurt you."
serpents are the Kenites, while the scorpions are the fallen angels that
will be coming to earth shortly, as John wrote in Revelation 12:9;
"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the
Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into
the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
"Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits
are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are
written in heaven."
the crucifixion Jesus gave us the power over all of our enemies, we
don't have to stand for the harassment that Job went through.
Put it away from yourself, and it is only you that can give the
command to keep them away from you.
You have the authority to stand up and make a stand for the
wisdom of God.
"Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth
grass as an ox."
is saying that he made the "behemoth" at that same time
that he made Job's soul. There
is a great argument amongst scholars as just what these "behemoth"
are. They argue between the
hippopotamus or an elephant.
"Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in
the navel of his belly."
is saying that when you want to feel strong, you look over here at the
behemoth, and take a close look at it's strength.
"He moveth his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his
stones are wrapped together."
we talking about an elephant or a hippopotamus?
Of course not, for neither of these animals have tails the size
of cedars. We are talking
about Dinosaurs, for the first earth age.
For that is when the soul of Job was created.
These animals did not back away from even a cedar tree, for they
have the strength to move them.
"His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like
bars of iron."
point that God is making here is that we are to make a stand for what we
believe in. Don't let Satan
"He is the chief of the ways of God: He That made him can
make His sword to approach unto him."
is saying, if you want to know how I would handle Satan, look at that
beast and see how nothing in the world could make him change out of what
he intends to do. When we
are set in our course we also are to use the wisdom that God has given
us. Only God can change this
animal's mind, for there was no way in his time that and man could bring
a dinosaur down with swords and spears.
"Surely the mountains bring him forth food, where all the
beasts of the field play,"
is saying that, I provide for those beasts also Job, just like I provide
"He lieth under the shady tree, in the covert of the reed,
provides those shady trees that they can eat from and give them shade
from the hot sun.
"The shady trees cover him with their shadow; the willows of
the brook compass him about."
"Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he
trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth."
gave him the massive trunk to suck up massive amounts of water, as well
as the rivers to drink from.
"He taketh it with his eyes: his nose pierceth through
other words, man cannot trap him. When
you set your snares, the elephant will come charging right on through
your nets. If Satan sets a
net for you, what are you going to do to protect yourself?
Are you going to let Satan's net tangle you all up to where there
is no credibility left in your life, or are you going to order him out
of your life? If you allow
it, Satan will draw his net so tight around you that you cannot even
is time to look through those nets of Satan, and tell Satan to get out
of your life. Then you stand
up and become accounted as one of God's elect.
When Satan goes before God and God asks him, what do you think of
my servant [yourself] down there on earth?
Let Satan's report be, he or she busted my nets again and I just
can't deal with him. Destroy
the nets of Satan just as fast as he places them in your path, and this
is a continual daily task. God
wants to be proud of you, and it is you that can make it happen.
When things just don't go your way don't sit back and whine over
something that you can't control, for there will be times when God will
use you though some hardships to get a job done that has to be done.
When those things happen, thank God for the opportunity to serve
him, and stand firm in the duties that He has given to you.
God gives you a task to do, He will always provide the ways and means
necessary to do what must be done. God
will provide all things for you when you are serving Him.
