Discussion for Job 40

    I've been tracing Jesus appearances in the old testament, from this Book chapter 38 to 41.
    it appears that Job is not talking to Jesus but The Almighty himself 41:1-2.
    Yet it leaves me still unsure, seems like the second time the Almighty speaks in the Bible after from Genesis.

    He said there s coming a time when I am going to break the high minded, and the proud, and the sinner and the wickedness of this earth. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JOB PUT HIS HAND ACROSS HIS MOUTH. Some of us need to do that sometimes. Some of us need to stop asking questions and believe what He s done for others He will do for you. Some of us need to wake up and realize what God is really saying here to us, he is in the midst of us. Stop shaking and running every time the Devil attacks you. Your like an elevator going up and down spiritually.

    If the bible says it is leviathan than it is leviathan, Andre. I 'm doing a study on leviathan and he is described as a dragon not a dinosaur.

    Job 40 and 41 is explained in Rev.12 and 13. The Catholic Church could never explain these passages because they are part of them. Any church that quotes the NIV stay away from. Job 40 and 41 is the the prophesy quoted by Jesus in Luke 10 18 revealed in Rev.12. Job is a type of Jew going through the Tribulation period. 42 chapters of Job there are 42 months in the last part of the tribulation. Job starts out with great riches loses all and at the end receives twice what he had before, just like the Jews will after the Tribulation. No Catholic priest will ever understand that Biblical truths because they are spiritually blind.
  • Kit a basham for verse 2
    JOB is a peerless man with his sight in Gods truths holding on to His Iron Rod he sees the lord with his eyes the Lord chastises him and makes his latter end greater than his beginning chapter 42
