Wesley's Notes for Job 19:25

19:25 For - This is the reason of his confidence in the goodness of his cause, and his willingness to have the matter depending between him and his friends, published and submitted to any trial, because he had a living and powerful Redeemer to plead his cause, and to give sentence for him. My Redeemer - In whom I have a particular interest. The word Goel, here used; properly agrees to Jesus Christ: for this word is primarily used of the next kinsman, whose office it was to redeem by a price paid, the sold or mortgaged estate of his deceased kinsman; to revenge his death, and to maintain his name and honour, by raising up seed to him. All which more fitly agrees to Christ, who is our nearest kinsman and brother, as having taken our nature upon him; who hath redeemed that everlasting inheritance which our first parents had utterly lost, by the price of his own blood; and hath revenged the death of mankind upon the great contriver of it, the devil, by destroying him and his kingdom; and hath taken a course to preserve our name, and honour, and persons, to eternity. And it is well observed, that after these expressions, we meet not with such impatient or despairing passages, as we had before; which shews that they had inspired him with new life and comfort. Latter day - At the day of the general resurrection and judgment, which, as those holy patriarchs well knew and firmly believed, was to be at the end of the world. The earth - The place upon which Christ shall appear and stand at the last day. Heb. upon the dust; in which his saints and members lie or sleep, whom he will raise out of it. And therefore he is fitly said to stand upon the dust, or the grave, or death; because then he will put that among other enemies under his feet.

Discussion for Job 19

    v. 25 - This is a prophecy of the end times. Job was the1st book of the Bible written, therefore it is the oldest existing book in the world. This one verse is just amazing. "My redeemer ......."; That's Jesus.

    The world can be unkind to the believer or the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. God is with us in our trials. We must stand by Faith in God.Believe in our heavenly home and the Redeemer of our Souls. The pain is temporary if you believe through Salvation. Job 19

    God is faithful to his promises and his words he will never leave us or forsake us thats tte promise . He is always in our side. He is the only God who can love us even we couldn't love ourself. We are saved by Grace and not by law. Through the blood of Jesus we are cleanse and sins are forgiven.He simply wants us to obey his words. Obedience is more important than sacrifice I will praise you Lord

    Help everyone dear Jesus that is going through a trial, thank you Lord Jesus for what you have brought us through in the past. Thank you for your deliverance with our current affliction. In Jesus in your name.

    i have no idea what this means. it is a little confusing to but i kind of think it is about God trying to ask Job why is he letting the Lord down, putting Jesus in the dark paths alone by himself but know i now why job is doing that either he is on someone else is side, he is trying to please someone, or he is trying to hurt Jesus feelings after all Jesus is the lord and savor and he died for you.
