Discussion for Job 37

  • AJ
    Thank you ANNE, i read the commentary to help understand what is being the "point" And the point i get now , was Job is still suffering and Elihu is counselling
  • Chosen
    the book of JOB has a wealth of insight into the awesome power (all power!) of our Almighty Creator Jehovah GOD. Having lived thru 58 wisconsin winters, i can personally testify to Job 37:9
  • Mick
    I AM THAT I AM: Our Lord Jesus is GOD INCARNATE, not Michael. This is a false teaching of the Watchtower Society (Jehovah's Witnesses) and needs to be rightly repented of as it is soul-destroying (literally). John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the word WAS GOD.
  • I AM THAT I AM
    To all: whom God the Father will give repentance. Repent NOW of thy wickedness and believe the Gospel. The Gospel of God is this: Jesus Christ, even the Christ child, MICHAEL: is come in the flesh. The Son of man is come to save that which was lost. Turn to God with a true heart. REPENT NOW AND ASK JESUS TO SAVE YOU FROM THIS HELL. Whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.
  • Charlie Burgess
    God's greatness can not be fantum by any no matter how knowledgeable.
  • Anne
    Elihu is counselling and reminding Job of the greatness and excellency of God. He is a God of power, order and details and man cannot fathom his greatness.
