38:12 Morning - Didst thou create the sun, and appoint the order and succession of day and night. Since - Since thou wast born: this work was done long before thou wast born. To know - To observe the punctual time when, and the point of the heavens where it should arise; which varies every day.


Discussion for Job 38

    Amazing, it proves that the Sun controls the jet stream, hence the winds!!!
  • Apostle Peter O. Eze for verse 12
    This is awesome. Only if every believer has known this, there is no better way to stay a winner in all the long than by commanding your morning and your day. I won 't let the devil have his way again in my days. Thank you Jesus.
  • This was before man was created, the sons of God refers to the Elohim who are called the Principals, The Inheritance of God in heaven like Archangels MichaEL, GabriEL, RaphaEL. And to His inheritance on earth is the name Israel, For Israel means Inheritance, or called the Israel of God or Spiritual Israel, for the covenant that commenced in the Physical is come a Spiritual unto His inheritance, according to the Prophecy where being a Jew or Gentile for eg., is not a criteria. As to the Mystery of the morning stars, to them unto whom it is revealed know it, which comes through the Prophecy of Jesus "You know not the Father, neither the Son but them unto whom the Son pleases to reveal ".
  • Tabitha Holt for verse 12
    If Job had "commanded the morning " then what is the need for the conversation in Job 1 1???
  • BroWayne for verse 7
    Christ is The morning star and was present at creation and all the fulness of the god head dwelt in him bodily. The Bible says that Jesus is the creator so I believe this is the trinity! Remember Let US make man in our image.
