Wesley's Notes for Job 1:12


1:12 Behold, &c. - It seems strange, that, God should give Satan such a permission as this. But he did it for his own glory, for the honour of Job, for the explanation of providence, and the encouragement of his afflicted people in all ages.


Discussion for Job 1

  • Eric
    How many times has God said, "have you considered my servant Eric"?

    Then I fail God by sinning with my lips and more?

    Thank God for Jesus who saves me from myself!
  • Thea Rene
    I test all bibles by Job 1:1 which was changed after WWII to read that Job came from Uz. My grandmother's bible states that he came from Asia! Imagine that!
  • A disciple
    Ezekiel 14:14 "Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD." Job was a real man and endured all these things faithfully staying true and right in his heart toward God and men. There are some extremely rare Saints who are really "men after God's own heart" and are better than any others on earth.

    ren were were created in the image of GOD we do not die like a dog
    what hope do you have after death.we have a body soul and spirit

    very scary to your eternal life. read revelation20-7-15 is this
    a parable too. you have been deceived. mark 8-36 jesus said
    what does it profit a man if he would gain the world and lose
    his soul.

    It is appointed for man once
    To die than the judgement
    Heb9-27 rev 11-15 read the
    Bible there is a literal hell
    Fire without a saving knowledge
    Of the lord Jesus Christ alone
    For salvation and there is a heaven
    When a believer dies absent in the
    Body is to present with the lord
    2nd cor 5-6-8 wake up and stop
    Disputing life after death we have
    A body soul and spirit .not animals
