Discussion for Job 40

    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.
  • Sean M. for verse 23
    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
  • the behemoth was not a crocodile or hippo. It was clearly a dinosaur. Clearly, we don't understand all, this was not either due to the details description in the remaining of chapter 40 and the leviathan in chapter 41 was a dragon. Read Daniel 14. Not included in the King James but in the catholic bible. Just a few details to focus in on. The scales, the tail as a tree? Yes the croc has scales, but neither have a tail as large as the Sypris tree.

    You insist on teaching your beliefs which are biblical! Please get real about Godís Word and leave the interpreting to God!
