Job Chapter 1 Comments ...


<-- Back to Job chapter 1

 


BSP's comment on 4/28/2017, 1:28pm...

God viewed Job as an upright and righteous man because he had fear or a deep reverence and fear of displeasing God. Job shunned what was bad. If we imitate Job, we can be viewed in the same way by Jehovah God.

Job is the excellent example for mankind,to learn from the only existing being is God. Everything belongs to God, we don't gain anything so we have nothing to loose, except our relationship with God. To keep that relationship takes patience and perseveration.And steadfast in prayers.

That is correct, 1 Thess ch 4 starting in v 13 lets us know that the "dead in Christ" are awaiting judgement day, and that also.... there will not be a 1000 yr reign on earth by Christ as most worldly religion teaches. We will meet him in the clouds, or air, and so shall we ever be with him. Also, 1 Samuel ch 28, v 19 lets us know that Samuel was not in heaven already, based on his remark to Saul.

Mark Edens, I thought this may be interesting for you. I just read a commentary about Job 1
Read Job 38:1-7. This expla
ins the "sons of God". This is at the beginning of creation, they are
created angels. I now believe Satan would not have been allowed in the third Heaven, where
God's throne is located. Where the four beasts are constantly saying HOLY,HOLY,HOLY.
Rev 4:8 and Satan is not.

 


Lavonne's comment on 1/05/2017, 3:06pm...

Mark Scripture does not give the location as to where Satan was. I do not believe the saved
are already in Heaven. Eccl 9:5 The dead know nothing. Acts 2:34 David is not ascended into the Heavens, and David was the man after God's own heart. Acts 13:22. No man has ascended to Heaven Jn 3:13. I do believe we are sons of God as you have stated. Job 1, I do
know about these sons of God.

 


MARK EDENS's comment on 1/05/2017, 2:44am...

So, to get back to my original ?...where was this place when satan came with the "sons of God"? The sons of God are simply those of us who are saved. Rom 8:14, John 1:12, 1 John 3:1, and many more references.

 


MARK's comment on 1/05/2017, 2:37am...

Ezk ch 28 is talking about Tyrus. As we read God's word we find often that we have to cross reference to see what is actually being taught. Remember when Jesus walked among us he spoke often in parables. Also, in the book of Revelations for example, words of symbolism are used throughout this book. Rev, beginning in ch 6 we read of the white horse, the red horse and the pale horse.

Commenting to "Mark" reading Job 1
God created Lucifer, he was an anointed cherub that covered the throne of God Ezk:28:14
until iniquity (sin was found in him, he then became Satan.) To me sounds like he could have
been in Heaven, the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also. Satan had been roaming the earth. I agree there are three heavens, so we cannot be
sure.

1 Samuel 16:14 but the spirit of the LORD departed from saul and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him Isaiah 54:16 Isaiah 54:16 behold I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work I have created the waster to destroy Isaiah 45:7 I form the light and create darkness I make peace and create evil I the LORD do all these things

 


Mark's comment on 1/04/2017, 1:59am...

God did not create Satan. The bible says in I John 3-8 that the devil sinneth from the beginning. And in John 8-44 that he was a murderer from the beginning. Also, he could not have been in the heaven that is considered the realm of God, if so, then there was sin in heaven! If it is possible for sin to be in heaven, then what do we have to hope for? Remember, the bible speaks of 3 heavens.

To Sharon - satan is not mighty; satan was the angel of light in heaven; he was created by God as were all things (In the beginning GOD ....). None of the angels have ANY power of themselves. satan had to present himself before God, his creator, to request power to torment Job. God gave His permission because God knew Job's heart and that Job would cleave to God.

 


Sharon's comment on 12/30/2016, 3:14pm...

Satan indeed is mighty but GOD is almighty.

 


Mark's comment on 12/30/2016, 2:22am...

i would like to know where the place was that Satan came to God?

 


ALON CHARLES's comment on 12/25/2016, 7:14pm...

I also love the book of job.i told GOD one day :I want to be like job,at time I was thinking about the blessings-wasn't thinking about what he went through to be blessed, still today I want to be like job,only now I want GOD to bring me there or wherever he choose for me to be that I make it to heaven by filling calling placed on my life.

 


Lacie's comment on 11/04/2016, 9:49pm...

Job is my favorite bible character I guess because he reminds me of me job had many problems I am disabled with makes it hard for me but whenever I am in a trial I think I don't have it as bad as job did and he did not leave God.

 


Pwele isaac's comment on 6/04/2016, 2:41am...

God's way is always the best. The Lord God will never allow a temptation that is beyond what we can manage. Whatever happens to a child of God as a purpose. The comments of 'P' the first one to this book must be condemned to its deepest point. God's is the best. Therefore let all human beings praise the Lord. Amen.

To 'P' on Gen. 1 -- verses 4, 5,

 


Stephen Woehr's comment on 3/13/2016, 6:12pm...

What helped make Job so great in the eyes of God before all his suffering began was not so much what he did or didn't do. It was his heart attitude. Verse 1 tells us more about his heart than about his works, and verse 5 shows how his love for God played out in his life in one area, that of his children.

 


Nnaji kenneth's comment on 2/14/2016, 2:32am...

if the people of God should have the understanding that job had, knowing that every thing int this world is vanity and equally know that we came to this world naked and will go back naked. only God gives and equally takes.

JOB Job, said to be the most righteous man, other than Christ Yet he endured great losses and suffering in his life. Job was blameless he feared God and he shunned evil Throughout losses and horrific pain, he remained faithful Job was greatly respected and living in prosperity When God asked satan what he thought of Job s piety Satan: Take away Job s blessings, and he will surely curse You Satan was granted to try, but harming Job he couldn t do That s when a series of catastrophic events happened Job s servants were killed his donkeys and oxen taken Next his sheep and attendants were engulfed in fire Fire sent down from heaven a result of satan s desire More servants were murdered and camels taken away Then he got word all of his children died that same day Receiving this news, was the most devastating blow--- His children crushed inside a son s home by a tornado Job was in mourning, but only praise came from his heart Naked I came from my mother s womb and naked I will depart The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away Refusing to accuse God words of praise he did say This still did not satisfy satan he challenged God again Told God if Job s life was attacked he will surely curse Him Satan could afflict Job only---was not allowed to let him die Even though God knew it was Him Job would stand by Satan covered Job with painful sores from feet to head Job s wife didn t support him Curse God and die she said Job called her foolish and remained faithful amidst suffering He knew he was innocent and struggled for understanding Jobs three friends came to make him more comfortable Upon seeing him, they cried, he was barely recognizable In silence for seven days and seven nights they were sitting Then in lengthy, poetic dialogues they were speaking These friends failed miserably in trying to console him And insisted that job s suffering was punishment for sin Because God causes no one to suffer innocently Their advice was to repent and to seek God s mercy Job tried to convince his friends he was blameless But no matter what he said his effort was useless Job wanted someone to intercede and hear his case It was clear all his words to his friends were a waste He wished never to be born and fell in deep despair There was a younger man who was a witness there: Elihu, out of respect, waited to voice his opinion He disagreed with Job and his friend s conversation For Job trying to justify himself, Elihu was angry He had heard all and claimed he had no partiality Elihu was angry with all of Job s friends too---- Condemning Job without proof they should not do Elihu s advice was to trust God and meditate Finally God spoke and responded to Job s case God questioned Job and demanded he answer God spoke of His majestic works and power Job heard God and his eyes were open and he knew God was right and accepted whatever God wanted to do Greatly humbled, Job repented in dust and ashes God rebuked Job s friends and after they did sacrifices-- Job prayed for his friends, and they were forgiven Then God healed Job and gave him ten more children Restored with twice the livestock and was twice as wealthy Job s years were another one hundred and forty As my trials don t seem fair I m reminded of this righteous man And try to trust in God and accept I may never understand A deeper intimacy with God resulted by Job s overcoming Through trusting, enduring, humbling, praising and praying. a poem I wrote, after reading Job

 


Sharon Stewart's comment on 1/06/2016, 3:11pm...

This book of job is my life do anyone else agree with me

 


Mikey's comment on 12/22/2015, 4:55am...

In spite of all the trials and tribulations we may have in life as a humble servant of God we should not be tempted by Satan and his evil work because God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son and whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life as job said god give and he takes away he created heaven and earth and not we ourselves

 


Dhamuzungu Herbert's comment on 12/03/2015, 11:58pm...

I have learn t a lot about job the faithful servant of God that in spite of the misfortunes,challenges,troubles that may befell you,The only palace of safety and comfort is in the hands of the most high God who is the source of life.

 


Reece's comment on 11/11/2015, 8:31am...

The book of JOB has kept me humble among other words of GOD, and the Holy Spirit. Having a job makes me think of the book of JOB. When I feel like I've worked so hard and I've lost everything, I remember JOB and GOD'S promise to us all. HE will never leave us nor forsake us. He was with JOB the whole time.

 


Mark verrell's comment on 11/04/2015, 1:00am...

Verse 22 I never til now took this verse in as I have now,so very beautiful and powerful conveying in a few words,explaining so much to the questioning unbelievers JOB DID NOT BLAME GOD. GOD'S WORD CONVEYS THE THOUGHT IT IS FOOLISH TO BLAME GOD FOR MISFORTUNE OR SELF LOSS. BEAUTIFUL SO SIMPLE AN ANSWER TO GIVE TO THOSE WHO QUESTION GOD AND HIS MERCY. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE
