Wesley's Notes for Job 36:29

36:29 Understand - Whence it comes to pass, that a small cloud, no bigger than a man's hand, suddenly spreads over the whole heavens: how the clouds come to be suddenly gathered, and so condensed as to bring forth thunder and lightning. Noise - The thunder produced in the clouds, which are often called God's tent or tabernacle.

Discussion for Job 36

  • Robert Bomar for verse 26
    What a lot of people don't know is Jesus is the one that said let us make man in our image because God don't talk nothing was made without Jesus because Jesus talks God is the power it took both God and Jesus to make man. When we die we will be equal to the angels, while on earth Jesus was equal to God when he died you can almost see how powerful he is again. The spirit has been forever and ever and will remain forever Amen. Jesus is the King for ever more.

    Re the 'trivia question 's correct answer ' provided by the online King James Bible Website re Eliahu being Inspired by the Spirit in his apeech the reference being Job 36 3. Not only is this wrong, I agree with Brenda 's comment of 2 04 2014 that this chapter in fact the whole unbroken series of chapters from 32 to 37 where Elihu speaks uninterruptedly is totally misunderstood even by the above Matthew Henry commentary, for the simple fact that the Lord Himself on appearing to Job acknowledges he does not 'know ' this speaker "Who is this that drakeneth counsel by words without knowledge? " and thus dismisses all that he said in that long stretch. It is encouraging to reallize the Lord himself put an end to so much distorted theology. Job did not have to answer him! Brenda challenged us to discern whose instrument he was I say he was used of Satan. Look at v4 where he claims to have 'perfect knowledge ', look at the fiery dart he throws at a man who 's lost his 10 children in an instant and everything else on earth '...thou hast fulfilled the judgment of the wicked '. Look at his gross error of imputing to Job he might try to deliver himself by means of a great ransom v.18. There he also claims the WRATH of God is on him. Only somebody who stands for the enemy speaks that way ...
    Job Chapter 26 Verse 27, first shows the Pronoun He, continuing it now becomes "They '.It seems that there are Plurality of persons in the Godhead, truly there is a Triune God....

    This chapter is one of the most dis-understood chapters in the Book of Job. I challenge whoever is summarizing and writing the question for chapter 36 to enter into a conversation with me about this sorely mis-understood chapter. Elihu was none of those choices listed below where it asks us to test our knowledge of Chapter 36. In addition, it is clearly most crucial to identify if Elihu was being used of God or of God's (and Job's) adversary.
