    Fake gods come from rebellion against GOD ALMIGHTY. Acts 19:26, 2Kings 19:18,

    1Timothy 2:5,

    The imagination of man; to ignore the obvious all around: that the earth, our very being, molecules that aren't created, only slightly manipulated by man, asks an answer beyond some comprehension.

    The question itself seems to derive from rebellion. Isaiah 55:8, Isaiah 29:15,16, Psalms 94:5-15, Psalms 139, Job 38:2-41, Job 40:7-13,

    GOD gave some of us very deeply inquisitive minds, to invent witty things, Proverbs 8:12, some build imaginative creations, that in ourselves deep questions of consciousness & core beginnings arise at times. In these gifted minds of power & powerful thinking, faults sometimes into arrogance of belief to define The CREATOR & make a beginning. Because in limited understanding we have beginning & perceivable ending in flesh. Yet in our core perceive there is more in the supernatural, outside the flesh. 1Corinthians 1:27,

    We as humans are like gods ourselves we can choose to do mighty evil or good in our days, we can cause other's to cry in distress or rejoice with gladness but in the end we will all answer to GOD ALMIGHTY the maker of heaven & earth. Psalms 82, Leviticus 25:17, Romans 14:12,

    It's also amazing that a creator would care so much for what HE has created that HE would still have a plan of redemption even after rebellion: John 3:16

    Dear Ginia, Peace what you describe is on the devil, he doesn't look after himself, does he? Job 40 and 41 chapter.

    I think You will need to read this and the referrals several times. I myself have heard a useful sermon from Derek Prince, about the enemies we meet. On youtube, Useful information and learning.

    Be blessed in the name of Jesus and know that everything is easy on the path of light. Jesus Loves You, i love u in Christ.

    Dinosaurs existed before the flood and to a lesser extent after the flood. The record found in fossils indicates that the present planetary ecosystem is incapable of producing and supporting large bodied reptiles and mammals.

    Apparently, before Noah's flood destroyed the antediluvian ecosystem, the earth could produce large bodied long living reptiles that we call dinosaurs (a word which means a fearful or monstrous lizard). The word of God states that not only did all humans, except eight, were destroyed by the flood, but also the earth itself was wrecked ( Genesis 6:13).

    The first possible mention of dinosaurs in the Bible is in Job 40. God, speaking directly to the patriarch Job, challenges him regarding a mysterious beast known as the Behemoth.Now behold the behemoth, which I made along with you; he eats grass like an ox; See, now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the muscles of his belly.He moves his tail like a cedar; the sinews of his thighs are knit together. His bones are like tubes of bronze; his ribs are like bars of iron. ( Job 40:15 - 18, HBFV, see also verses 19 to 24)

    The second possible reference to huge, now extinct dinosaurs is in Job 41. God, again speaking directly to Job, challenges him regarding his ability to catch or tame a creature referred to as Leviathan.Can you draw out the leviathan with a hook, or hold down his tongue with a cord? Can you put a ring into his nose, or pierce his jaw with a gaff hook? . . .Will you play with him as with a bird? Or will you bind him for your maidens? . . . ( Job 41:1 - 2, 5, also see the rest of the chapter).

    The third possible reference to these large reptiles is in Genesis 1:21 where it states that God created "great sea creatures." Many Scriptural scholars feel that these references are talking about the hippopotamus, crocodile, whale or other large known animal. Other scholars of a more scientific mind suggest that these verses are actually referencing dinosaurs.

    A Book by Author Dan Alice,

    "A man is born as a child , grows to adulthood , and consequently enters old age , when he deteriorates and reverts to a childish state. (proverb)"

    As we become older we may need someone else to make these decisions for us. This is the concept of "once an adult, twice a child." Same as children need parents or guardians, we may age into a period where we must be reliant on a caregiver.

    BIBLE examples:

    Psalms 62:11

    God hath spoken once; twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

    1 Corinthians 13:11

    When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man [born again]. I put away childish things.

    Job 40:5

    Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

    Job 33:14

    For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

    DG on Job 12:9

    Does Job 12:23

    mean that God is the bone who makes 'our nation (S) great...oR is it man who by his convictions of doing right and serving the afflicted, and heeding to moral laws within their heart and soul etc.?

    You are replying to a comment by "DG"

    Responding to your question. please read Job 42:1-7

    Job also recognized that he uttered and said what he did not understand.

    things to wonderful for him. that "he knew not" or nothing.

    he repented about what he said. and God said that job spoke things that is right

    or he spoke truth. Job 40:3-5 proves that in grief and in agony and pain he spoke

    things he did not understand. again however, he repented about all the things he did

    not understand. then Jehovah ( Psalm 83:18) said he spoke truth (by means of repentance and

    taking back or correcting what he previously uttered in ignorance)

    Let's start with scripture.

    2 Esdras 6:47-52 your reference

    Genesis 1:20-22 * one translation of the Bible I recently read: instead of "whales" says "Monster/s" , Jerusalem Bible translation says"great serpents", NIV says "great creatures " , Jubilee Bible 2000 translation says "And GOD created the great dragons" several other translations say "great sea creatures". = (Huge water creatures.)

    My 1st thought is the " dinosaur" namely "Brachiosaurus" & "Brontosaurus" [quotes- for names today?]

  • LEON DAVIS on Genesis 1
    My brother Chris, thank you the astute observations. There is a difference between the fall of the adversary and the final casting out of heaven. The fall, which occurred following Genesis 1:1 and the aftermath of God's judgment, which is found in Genesis 1:2; included the following consequences. Although still allowed access to heaven, the adversary was stripped of all authority and glory; he had been the adorned, anointed cherub that covereth. However, the beauty of his form was transformed into that of a serpent and a dragon; also, he was demoted to the lowly position of tempter ( Gen. 3:1; Matt. 4:3). All movement was restricted by God's "hook in his hose" ( Job 41:2); and any use of power required permission because God put a "double bridle" on him ( Job 41:13-14). Also, he had to regularly report with the regular angels ( Job 1:6; 2:1). This leads to the reason why he was not immediately destroyed.

    Christ opened the spiritual matrix and became the firstfruits and prototype of all who inherit the kingdom of heaven. Similarly, God positioned the adversary as the one who opened the matrix, and created hell for him and the angels which are suggested in the plural pronoun "they" in mentioned in Ezekiel 28:16 and are mentioned in Jude 6 ( Matt. 25:41).

    The eternal fate of all humankind is either heaven or hell. Water represents people ( Rev. 17:15). Therefore, for the duration of man's chronological week upon the earth following the fall of Adam and Eve, God is using Christ to draw up the Jordan River, which represents those who will inherit the kingdom, into His mouth ( Job 40:23). Conversely, he uses the adversary as the serpent who eats dust ( Gen. 3:14; 1 Pet. 5:8), from which man is made ( Gen. 2:7), and carry them along with him into hell.

    These conditions surrounding the fall of the adversary were effective throughout the Old Testament. However, the final casting did not occur until the days of John the Baptist ( Matt. 11:12). See the following post.
  • Chris - in Reply on Job 39:14
    As you know, God is now speaking to Job (from Job chapter 38 onwards). God gives Job a whole list of things that He does, to which Job & others cannot have input to - all this to show Job that God is in control, not Job - He knows what He is doing & how He looks at things & at people.

    So in Job 39:13, God refers to the peacock & ostrich, who carelessly leave their eggs buried in the earth, ignorant that something can pass by & crush those eggs. God says that He has deprived these animals of 'wisdom' to know or to look ahead as to the other possibilities of the eggs' survival. The bird only knows to lay its eggs & bury them; she gives no further thought about their further protection. Like the proverbial ostrich which buries its head in the sand, believing that no one can see it, since it can't see anyone.

    Job was not to be like such animals devoid of understanding (you will need to look for this truth as you read the Book of Job, as it would be too much to write here). Rather Job needed to realize his humanity, his lack of wisdom & need to accept God's actions & dealings with him.

    After this great dialogue by the Lord, Job finally realized that his wisdom lay in his being quiet before the Lord ( Job 40:3-5). As James 1:19 says: "let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath".

    Job 40; 15Behold now behemoth, which I made with thee; he eateth grass as an ox. 16Lo now, his strength is in his loins, and his force is in the navel of his belly. 17He moveth his tail like a cedar: the sinews of his stones are wrapped together.
    18His bones are as strong pieces of brass; his bones are like bars of iron. The "D's" were created in the 1st age the world that then was. Man in the spirit was there but not in the flesh. All life including the "D's" went extinct when God ended the 1st age.........the great 'Katabalo"

    Irene.I agree with you on Quadrupeds, the Behemoth H930 Hebrew concordence is of a relationship to Hippopotamus or Nile horse. These are animals that feed both in water as well as on land. JOB 40.
    I am not seeing on my phone where I discussed this.Please make my understanding visable. It is hard to talk about things if discovery is not shown. Thank you.
  • Lorin
    The word image means: a phantom, illusion,resemblance, representative figure. This is who we are as mortals. But this is not to say that some souls maybe new. For when did God first make Job? JOB 40 :15. THIS great behemoth did not exist at the timing of the book of Job. So This brings to mind have we made more than one trip to this earth to work on our own iniquities? But it is clear man was
  • Robert on Job 40
    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.
