"Then Job answered the Lord, and said,"
"I know that Thou canst do every thing, and that no thought
can be withholden from Thee."
is now humble as he is addressing Jehovah God.
Job acknowledges that he is now aware that God knows every
thought that he thinks, even as he is thinking those thoughts.
Job now knows that he doesn't have to describe anything to God
for He knows everything.
"Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore
have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which
I knew not."
should be quite obvious to us now, for the methods of Satan all opened
up with Elihu, and Elihu had a demon within him.
That was how Satan works; he takes truth, and form the truth he
forms his lies. Though
Eliphaz claimed to have the Spirit of God, you cannot have the Holy
Spirit and an demon within you at the same time.
Though Eliphaz claimed to be speaking on God's behalf, he was
twisting the truth with human reasoning for the sake of coming to a
conclusion based on human experiences.
Remember Bildad? His
conclusions were all based on human tradition, and Zophar came to his
conclusions from human merit. Job
is saying that he can now recognize Satan when he comes now.
After reading all of the book of Job; can you?
"Hear, I beseech Thee, and I will speak; I will demand of
thee, and declare thou unto me."
"I have heard thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine
eye seeth Thee."
is saying that he has now heard God by the reading of his word, and now
hearing with his own ear, and now my spiritual eyes are open and I see
You clearly. God and
Satan are both known and real to Job, and Job has each in their
place. How did the truth
come to Job? By reading and
by hearing the Word of God.
"Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and
friend, you like Job are a mere human being, and we are not to confront
Satan on our own. You don't
have to learn the lessons of Job by going through them yourself, but
take it by faith. God gave
us Job and this book so that his elect could also have their eyes open
just as Job's is now. Trust
in God and receive the rewards.
"And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words
unto Job, the Lord said to Eliphaz the Temanite, "My wrath is
kindled against thee, and against thy two friends: for ye have not
spoken of Me the things that is right, as My servant Job hath."
other words, Job knew that God wasn't the fault, however he did not know
who was the cause of his problem. However,
you Eliphaz, and your two friends have blamed Me and spoken things
about me that are not true. So
how is Job going to handle these three friends that have blamed Job with
so many accusations?
"Therefore take unto you now seven bullocks and seven rams,
and go to My servant Job, and offer up for yourselves a
burnt offering; and My servant Job shall pray for you: for
him will I accept: lest I deal with you after your folly, in that ye
have not spoken of Me the thing which is right, like My servant
can be no doubt as to who's servant Job is with God making this
statement to all three of Job's friends.
Job is one of God's elect, and a servant to Him, just as you are,
when you are one of God's elect.
what did Job say and do about these friends?
Job prayed for them and took their repentance to the Lord.
It is so hard to pray for someone that has offended you, and
talked about you, but that is exactly what we are to do.
Pray for each of them. It
is the responsibility of the elect to pray for those that are
spiritually blind. If you
want your life to run smooth, this is the model that you are to follow.
Though all this these three still didn't know that Satan was the
one that caused it all.
"So Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar
the Naamathite went, and did according as the Lord commanded them: the
Lord also accepted Job.
Lord loved Job for Job was one of God's elect.
Notice that nothing is said of Elihu here, for God addressed
Elihu back in 39 and 40, when He asked, "who is this that talks
with all this wisdom?" He
set Elihu straight then, and doesn't consider another mention
"And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed
for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had
verse is the key to success, so don't over look this verse.
If you want to be prosperous then learn the verse spoken of here.
The condition and the fact are both stated here.
Job had been subject to all sorts of torment by these three friends, and
then "when he prayed for his friend"..., that is
the condition that must be present.
Job prayed for the very ones that offended him, and forgave
them. God gave Job a
blessing for being concerned for those that did him wrong.
It takes a big and humble person to pray and forgive those that
have done you wrong. As one
of God's elect, God expects you to be that person.
stop and think for a moment, the elect are called the firstfruits, and the
rewards for being the firstfruits of God is the double portion.
With humility and concern for those that are lost, comes its
rewards, which are part of the inheritance that we have as part of the
"Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his
sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did
eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted
him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every
man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of
you had not caught the error of this verse than you haven't paid
attention all the way through this book.
Even though Job knew by then that it wasn't God that brought the
evil upon Job, his family, and the rest of the world are still
blaming God and even this translator.
Human nature would be to turn all these friends and family away
for all the evil thoughts that they had about Job, when he sat there in destitute, covered with boils. However,
now that those boils are gone, and the wealth is back by God blessing,
here comes the friends and family to take hold of Job.
That is the human nature of mankind, however as one of God's
elect we have a duty and responsibility to take this to the next level,
to the spiritual level.
though these people didn't know that Satan was the one that caused all
the trouble, Job still loved them and took them in.
We all make mistakes, and when we do, we are to make things
right. Job now knew the Lord
Jehovah, and he also know all about Satan, even those the others didn't.
"So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his
beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels
and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses."
"He had also seven sons and three daughters."
it is again, seven and three, the same number of children he had before
the trouble came upon him. You
see that "seven thousand" in biblical numerics stands for all
the elect that shall be, the first shall be the same as the last.
It could not be doubled, for it is the number of spiritual
completeness. Sure there
will be far more than seven thousand to make the stand, but when the
number Seven thousand is used, it always represents God's elect.
These seven thousand [Elect] that will stand against Satan when
he comes, know Satan in his role of the Antichrist.
Each of those will be clear in their mind the entire plan of God,
and they will know Satan as the Antichrist by the role he shall play.
God's elect will not be deceived.
"And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name
of the second, Kezla; and the name of the third, Keren-happuch."
names of these three daughters in the Hebrew
are Jemima, which is to say, "as beautiful as the
is translated "as fragrant as cassia, or cinnamon"; and
the third daughter Keren-happuch, "the horn of beauty, or
plenty". Job was
proud of his three daughters and they were an asset to him.
"And in all the land were no woman found so fair as the
daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their
"After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw
his sons, and his sons' sons, even four generations."
"So Job died, being old and full of days."
Job died he had lived two hundred and forty years, and died about
fifteen hundred years before the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
