Job Chapter 38 Discussion

  • Gary33 - In Reply on Job 38 - 2 years ago
    The name Arcturus references the constellation Ursa Major (The Great Bear) which lies roughly 46 million light years away from earth. It is considered the third largest constellation in the heavens seen from our planet. The seven primary stars of Ursa Major are also called, in modern times, the "Big Dipper," "Charles's Wain" and other names.

    Both God and Job reference Arcturus as an example of the Lord's power and infinite wisdom. It is possible that "the sons," connected to the constellation in Job 38:32, is in reference to the three stars found in the bear's "tail" (the three brightest stars in the Big Dipper's handle seen below).

    God bless you all

    Job 38:32

    Who is Arcturus and his sons?
  • Iz on Job 38:32 - 2 years ago
    I personally don't think the real significance of that stanza is to express how all knowing and all colorful the creator is over his creation.

    The reason I say this is because if that point could be expressed any number of ways more efficiently then by doing it the way it was done; this is because the way it's done the reader has deposited think wait a minute who is Arcturus what is Masa Ross etc point could've been made easily without the distraction if that was the point trying to be made.
  • Word 76 on Job 38 - 2 years ago
    Verse 38:7 is one verse to think about because it includes the word stars and that is atheism children and also the sons of God which is everyone.
  • Toni Booker on Job 38:32 - 3 years ago
    NASA recently published these "new" discoveries regarding the gravitational forces of Pleiades yet this information was clearly written in God's word! Accurate science always matches up with the word of God.

    And God knows who to trust from the 1st age...........those who are written in the Lamb's book of life from the beginning (1st age). The Called, Chosen and Faithful, the Elect/ Ephes: 4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
  • Chris - In Reply on Job 38 - 3 years ago
    Eric, I'm not sure whether you are in agreement with Peter Grant or myself, by quoting his quote: "Does a spinning ball earth rocketing wildly through ( so called space) have have foundations? If he were alive his answer would have to be no!". Your question is a little open-ended.

    He believes in a flat Earth around which revolves the Sun & Moon. I submit to the more conventional view. So, I'm sorry, I don't know the intent of your question.

    Isaiah 40:22 It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in:

    circle of the earth, circle of the earth, circle of the earth.

    a pancake?
  • Eric Hebbeln - In Reply on Job 38 - 3 years ago
    Does it say a spinning ball hurtling through space?? No it doesn't.
  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia - In Reply on Job 38:4 - 3 years ago
    Whatever - I repent and sincerely apologize to any "Christian German Scientists labeled a Nazi " But they lied about landing land on something Yahweh has called a light Gen
  • Adam - In Reply on Job 38:4 - 3 years ago
    1. Isaiah 40:22 calls the earth a circle.

    2. NASA doesn't control everything in the skies. You tried to discredit some scientists for being from Germany. Is that their fault? My family is from Germany and we're Christian, are you calling us Nazis? Have you even been to Germany? When a country gets a corrupt oppressive ruler its a logical fallacy to assume all its people suddenly become evil. The fact is the vast majority of Germans were against the Nazi rule and were scared and propaganda lies made them not know the truth of what was going on.

    3. The circle of the earth is easily proven by flying on an airplane. If you go high up you can see curvature of the horizon. Also, you can fly all the way around the world in a straight line and end up at your place of origin. I've already done this myself and proved the earth is a sphere. Have you ever traveled? This is a very easy experiment you can do, so what would prevent you from doing this? God already gave us the brains and resources to explore our natural world. People already do this all the time for work, vacation, etc. So when you do this you won't see any folds, no 'end' point, which is because its a sphere with gravity pulling from the middle. Otherwise where is your source of gravity? So, you expect to 'fall off' the end and 'down' in space? Where is down? Anyway you could simply take a GPS and plot all the waypoints of your flight then later plot in software and you'll see its a globe/circle just as God said.

    4. There's a mountain of photo/video evidence of what the earth looks like from space. Thousands of photos/videos from before CGI was invented and before non-linear video editing was invented. What prevents you from writing/talking to the people who have been space? All the other stars and planets we can already see are also circles/spheres. We have lots of satellites orbiting earth all the time, which allows you to have internet service, to use websites like this, to read the Bible online, etc. God bless!
  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia - In Reply on Job 38:4 - 3 years ago
    Well what can I say- Except God bless you Sir - Seems your mind is made up!! - I am deeply concerned in your belief in Masonic CGI imitation pictures of earth from so called space.

    NASA was founded with scientists from NAZI Germany (Research operation Paper clip)

    I base my reasoning on over 200 verses of scripture in Gods word that proves NASA to be a deceptive Organization that built it's reputation with former members from a defeated Satanic Regime that slaughtered millions of Gods chosen people!!

    I could go on but it seems you are not open to the possibility God created a flat non - rotating earth even (As you say ) he can measure a spinning ball rocketing wildly through the firmament with a line and know the number of hairs on our heads - Seems to me a FE would be a walk in the park for him. May the lord Bless you and your family abundantly!!
  • Chris - In Reply on Job 38:4 - 3 years ago
    I agree with you. Neither you nor I can measure a spinning ball rocketing wildly through the firmament with a line. But God can! He even knows the number of hairs on your head ( Mt 10:30). However, I can't help you with your belief in a flat Earth; I just go by the photos from space - & that'll do me for now. Maybe for interests sake & in understanding the Wisdom of God, (& not asking for much), you could take the mileage from Budgewoi to Sydney to the centimetre & see if you are satisfied with the outcome. Just maybe we have to rely on God for His Abilities & Wisdom that are far more superior to ours.
  • Peter Grant Budgewoi Australia on Job 38:4 - 3 years ago
    The Lord God Almighty is asking Job - "Where were you when I laid the foundations of the Earth?"

    Let me ask this this question of Job also " Does a spinning ball earth rocketing wildly through ( so called space) have have foundations? If he were alive his answer would have to be no!

    In verse 5, the Lord also asks Job "Who has measured it - Do you know?" Or who has stretched a line upon it? (to measure it)

    Let me ask you this "How can anyone measure a spinning ball earth rocketing wildly through (to be precise) The FIRMAMENT with a line? Only a flat surface can be measured with a line!

    God is being mocked by a lie of a spinning ball Earth

  • Daughter of the King on Job 38 - 4 years ago
    Job had went through much sorrow and in that sorrow, he uttered things that were true to him, without the knowledge of God. We can relate, so many times we complain and murmur when we get into sorrowful or hard trials and tribulation. Through his afflictions, God humbles him in this chapter and makes him perceive that God is in control and makes no mistakes. God begins to ask him questions that are a mystery to him, in order to convey that he is still God even in situations that we do not understand. Never before had a righteous man gone through the things that Job went through. God wanted to convey to us that despite living righteous lives we may go through troubling times!
  • Maurice Stanley on Job 38 - 4 years ago
    Is aligning oneself w/God's will compatible w/free will? Are we responsible for our actions, worthy of praise and blame? Not my will, but Thine be done, Jesus says at Gesthemane. I believe we have free will, unlike e. g. Sam Harris. He is a determinist, denies free will. I need an answer to this.
  • Ed on Job 38 - 4 years ago
    Compare Job 38:22-23 with Revelation 16:21.
  • Mike on Job 38 - 5 years ago
    Like any time you read God's Word always pray that the Holy Spirit will guide you to what is needed for today. Job has come to the point where his so called friends have persuaded him that all this death and sickness is because he has sinned against God. But before Job is about to say the unthinkable, look what it says in 38:1 "Then the Lord answered Job". Never assume that Lord forsakes His own
  • Bruce on Job 38 - 5 years ago
    If Called,Washed in His Blood, You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost ( Mark 1:8)
    If Anyone be in Christ, He is a New Creature---- All Things Will Become New ( 2Corinthians 5:17) You Will Know, Impossible not to. / Just by Prayer, Reading His Word ( No Other Books, Commentaries, TV, Internet. Just The KJV ) Telling Others The Way of Salvation and what He has Done in Your Life / It will Take time.
  • Aklha on Job 38 - 5 years ago
    I am new to the TRUTH yet i a have always believed in THE MOST HIGH. I read but I do not understand what it is I am reading and I ask that my ELOHIM will guide me and help to understand. Can someone please explain what this means, so that I may get understanding? Thank you
  • John Welch on Job 38:24 - 9 years ago
    Amazing, it proves that the Sun controls the jet stream, hence the winds!!!
  • Apostle Peter O. Eze on Job 38:12 - 9 years ago
    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.
  • Tabitha Holt on Job 38:12 - 9 years ago
    If Job had "commanded the morning " then what is the need for the conversation in Job 1 1???
  • BroWayne on Job 38:7 - 9 years ago
    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.
  • Ben Campbell on Job 38 - 9 years ago
    verse 22 or Has thou seen the treasures of the hail? Yes, see A YouTube video about the work of Dr Masaru Emoto Then read verse 23 and tremble.
  • Gideon Akpodido Etakefe on Job 38:11 - 9 years ago
    It means God can N will place a limit or stop how far the devil think he can terrorize us and the devils pride is stayed.And can not go futher than God allows him to go.Amen
  • Calvin mazvazva on Job 38:7 - 9 years ago
    I think morning stars are angels because at that time nothing wrong was found.
  • Charlie barton on Job 38 - 9 years ago
    i love the book of job when god declares himself to job and declares his wisdom of the universe god is good
  • Jenny on Job 38:32 - 9 years ago
    Absolutely fascinating just reading the comments about Pleiades and Arcturus. Who is God ?
