Wesley's Notes for Job 36:30


36:30 Light - The lightning; fitly God's light, because God only can light it. It - Upon the cloud, which is in a manner the candlestick in which God sets up this light. The sea - The lightning spreads far and wide over all the parts of the sea, and pierceth deep, reaching even to the bottom of it.

    Mindy; Romans 11:36 "For of him, through him and to him are all things, to whom be glory for ever." This is not directed at you specifically but most people do not see the magnitude of; "ALL THINGS."

    This verse proves to me that God created all things for Jesus Christ, by Jesus Christ, and through His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The Lord is to be sought. The Bible clearly teaches that we can know truth and the Truth (Christ) through reading the Scriptures. Thus, preachers are not lying when they say you can know the Lord. However the bible makes it clear in Deuteronomy 13 what a false prophet is. Hope this helps

    Bible is available for us to BELIEVE and not to FIGURE OUT. That is why God says lean not with your own understanding for my Words shall never pass away. Jesus himself is the word of God. John 1:1 In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. We need to meditate God's words with the help of the HOLY SPIRIT.The light of our body is our EYES use them in God's way Amn
