Ancient Seals

Job 14:17 My transgression is sealed up in a bag, and thou sewest up mine iniquity. It was customary with the ancients to use a seal oftentimes where we use a lock. Money was counted and put into a bag, then a seal put on it. Thus a seal might be put to a bag as evidence that its contents need not be counted again. The idea here is that Job’s sins were all numbered, put into a bag, and carefully stored away for future reference; God Continue Reading

First Mention Of Satan

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them. There was a day when angels in heaven came to present themselves before Jehovah. This happened twice [1:6; 2:1], implying that there are regular days in which angels do this. Worship on the planet heaven as well as on other planets where there is life, is no doubt carried on regularly, as here on earth. Other Continue Reading

Mining In Job’s Time

Job 28:1-11 [read all] Surely there is a vein for the silver, and a place for gold where they fine it. Iron is taken out of the earth, and brass is molten of the stone. He setteth the end to darkness, and searcheth out all perfection: the stones of darkness and the shadow of death. Places to refine and use many metal speaks of the wisdom, skill and understanding of man. Working in metals was one of the earliest trades known to man. Continue Reading

The Morning Stars

JOB 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy? The morning stars are the infinite suns out in space which are suns to other planets like our sun is to our earth and its related planets. This passage proves that the whole of the heavens was created before the earth itself or these stars could not have been singing when God laid the foundations of the earth [v 6-7]. That the material creations Continue Reading

God “Hangs The Earth Upon Nothing”

Job 26:7 He it is Who spreads out the northern skies over emptiness and hangs the earth upon or over nothing. [Amplified Bible]. For millenniums, various theories of what supports the earth – elephants, giants and other fantastic means – were accepted by mankind as truth; but the Bible made no such absurd error. How could Job, more than 3000 years ago, possibly have known that God “hangs the earth upon nothing,” EXCEPT BY DIVINE Continue Reading

See Yourself As God Sees You

Job 29:14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me or clothed itself with me; my justice was like a robe and a turban or a diadem or a crown! [The Amplified Bible]. Blameless and upright as Job had been – and God had so pronounced him – his misunderstood afflictions had caused him to get dangerously off center. Instead of keeping his mind stayed on God and justifying Him, he is giving his whole thought to justifying himself. Instead Continue Reading

Great Bible Doctrines in the Book of Job

JOB 2: 10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. We rightly suppose that Job was a very religious man, and that he was acquainted with God and religious as it was understood and practiced in those days. He no doubt knew of the many traditions and revelations of God up to that time, Continue Reading

Job’s Integrity

Job 2: 3 And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in all the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? And still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movest Me against him without cause. God confers great honor upon Job, a man of dust, who so obviously has gained the seal of approval and love from his Creator. Much emphasis is placed upon Continue Reading
