Discussion for Job 34

  • Fred Scanlan
    Our natural man and woman because of original sin is naturally against God. Since this is true ,than how can man commune with the creator or be found in and with him? How will God manifest himself to us?
    Christ only, is the way the truth and life,. When we are clothed, covered in his righteousness, the Holy Spirit will manifest himself to us. To Know Christ is to love Him. Keep his commandments.
  • Alex Mattathil
    We know what is good and what is bad. Job is an innocent person. So put away your sins and be an innocent
    honest person. God strikes men down and they perish.He punishes sinners where ever he is because God is in every form of Spirit.
    I would pray for you all. May the Lord God bless you!!
  • AHUWA CHIAMAKA
    There is nothing hidden from because He is everywhere as a Spirit watching every actions we take
  • S. Durai Samson for verse 21
    When man feels or thinks he is in privacy place or in a closed room he is trying to fool himself, the reason is God is present every where, we cannot see God physically because God is in the form of Spirit. In summary God knows us very well than any other person or friend in this world. You may be a person who thinks no one cares about me, but I tell you God cares for you with His whole heart. Answer God is Love. God Bless you.......,
  • God is never to blame for the suffering and wickedness we see around us. Wickedness has absolutely no place in God's personality.
  • Gregory for verse 10
