Discussion for Job 1

  • Donald Garron
    Job is the excellent example for mankind,to learn from the only existing being is God. Everything belongs to God, we don't gain anything so we have nothing to loose, except our relationship with God. To keep that relationship takes patience and perseveration.And steadfast in prayers.
  • MARK
    That is correct, 1 Thess ch 4 starting in v 13 lets us know that the "dead in Christ" are awaiting judgement day, and that also.... there will not be a 1000 yr reign on earth by Christ as most worldly religion teaches. We will meet him in the clouds, or air, and so shall we ever be with him. Also, 1 Samuel ch 28, v 19 lets us know that Samuel was not in heaven already, based on his remark to Saul.
  • LaVonne
    Mark Edens, I thought this may be interesting for you. I just read a commentary about Job 1
    Read Job 38:1-7. This expla
    ins the "sons of God". This is at the beginning of creation, they are
    created angels. I now believe Satan would not have been allowed in the third Heaven, where
    God's throne is located. Where the four beasts are constantly saying HOLY,HOLY,HOLY.
    Rev 4:8 and Satan is not.
  • Lavonne
    Mark Scripture does not give the location as to where Satan was. I do not believe the saved
    are already in Heaven. Eccl 9:5 The dead know nothing. Acts 2:34 David is not ascended into the Heavens, and David was the man after God's own heart. Acts 13:22. No man has ascended to Heaven Jn 3:13. I do believe we are sons of God as you have stated. Job 1, I do
    know about these sons of God.
  • MARK EDENS
    So, to get back to my original ?...where was this place when satan came with the "sons of God"? The sons of God are simply those of us who are saved. Rom 8:14, John 1:12, 1 John 3:1, and many more references.
  • MARK
    Ezk ch 28 is talking about Tyrus. As we read God's word we find often that we have to cross reference to see what is actually being taught. Remember when Jesus walked among us he spoke often in parables. Also, in the book of Revelations for example, words of symbolism are used throughout this book. Rev, beginning in ch 6 we read of the white horse, the red horse and the pale horse.
