Beauty of the Lord in us
God has found a ransom
God loves to restore and encourage us. He loves us.
God is a loving God. That is the source and root of the original sin. The devil always present God as if He is not generous and holding back on us. The cross of Jesus Christ destroy all that lies.
God is just in justifying us.
God is a holy God. He don’t compromise His holiness.
God is holy in all His actions. Essence of God is love.
God is good to us because He is good.
Christ became liable for our sins on the cross. Jesus is the Lamb without sins. Behold the Lamb of God!
The mystery of the 3 in 1 and 1 in 3!
He was placed as a foetus in the mother’s womb. All the baby’s blood came from God. Mother’s blood is not in the baby. Therefore the importance of virgin birth.
The righteous Christ has died for us. God never make a mistake in His acts or deeds.
God sent Jesus. Jesus is the Lawyer representing us for 2000 years.
There is no other ways. Sin must be punished and has been punished on the cross.
God found the basis to make us righteous. It is provided by Lord Jesus!
God loves us and He gave Jesus for us!
The Book of
Job and His Family in Uz
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil. And seven sons and three daughters were born to him. Also, his possessions were seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very large household, so that this man was the greatest of all the people of the East.
Job lives before Abraham. Job is the oldest book. Israel is God’s covenant people after Abraham.
Man is known by his hands (the fingerprint) – this was talked about in the book of Job.
If your find the cross, you find the way home. (The cross can be seen in the stars in the sky)
God Himself called Job upright and blameless. There r roots to be dealt with.
The root cause of Job’s problem is self-righteousness.
Devil knows that to hurt Job is to hurt God. This is evil evil.
Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord—that the Lord is very compassionate and merciful.
Truth shared must be in season.
“Remember now, who ever perished being innocent?
Or where were the upright ever cut off?
Even as I have seen, (argued from experience)
Those who plow iniquity
And sow trouble reap the same.
By the blast of God they perish,
And by the breath of His anger they are consumed.
“For inquire, please, of the former age,
And consider the things discovered by their fathers; (argued from tradition)
For we were born yesterday, and know nothing,
Because our days on earth are a shadow.
Will they not teach you and tell you,
And utter words from their heart?
“Can the papyrus grow up without a marsh?
Can the reeds flourish without water?
While it is yet green and not cut down,
It withers before any other plant.
So are the paths of all who forget God;
And the hope of the hypocrite shall perish,
“If you would prepare your heart,
And stretch out your hands toward Him;
If iniquity were in your hand, and you put it far away,
And would not let wickedness dwell in your tents;
Then surely you could lift up your face without spot;
Yes, you could be steadfast, and not fear;
Because you would forget your misery,
And remember it as waters that have passed away,
And your life would be brighter than noonday.
Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.
And you would be secure, because there is hope;
Yes, you would dig around you, and take your rest in safety.
You would also lie down, and no one would make you afraid;
Yes, many would court your favor.
But the eyes of the wicked will fail,
And they shall not escape,
And their hope—loss of life!”
All scriptures is inspired of God but not all is written to us.
Eliphaz – from experience
Biidad – from tradition
Zophar – from legality
Chapter 29 of Job, he referred to himself over 40 times but refer to God only 5 times.
Source of blessings u cant argue from experience, tradition and legality.
When u argue from experience, tradition and legality to bring people out of themselves, it will do the opposite. They will be more self-righteous.
Job Trusts in His Redeemer
Then Job answered and said:
“How long will you torment my soul,
And break me in pieces with words?
These ten times you have reproached me;
You are not ashamed that you have wronged me.
And if indeed I have erred,
My error remains with me.
If indeed you exalt yourselves against me,
And plead my disgrace against me,
Know then that God has wronged me,
And has surrounded me with His net.
Now because they were years older than he, Elihu had waited to speak to Job. When Elihu saw that there was no answer in the mouth of these three men, his wrath was aroused.
So Elihu, the son of Barachel the Buzite, answered and said:
“I am young in years, and you are very old;
Therefore I was afraid,
And dared not declare my opinion to you.
I said, ‘Age should speak,
And multitude of years should teach wisdom. ’
But there is a spirit in man,
And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Great men are not always wise,
Nor do the aged always understand justice.
When Eilhu spoke, Job did not answer back.
“If there is a messenger for him,
A mediator, one among a thousand,
To show man His uprightness,
Then He is gracious to him, and says,
“Deliver him from going down to the Pit;
I have found a ransom’;
His flesh shall be young like a child’s,
He shall return to the days of his youth.
It is not about the man but about Him!
Declare to man not about man but about Him!
Atonement – ransom
The price for the health and wonderful marriage – is because God has found a ransom
The Lord Reveals His Omnipotence to Job
Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said:
“Who is this who darkens counsel
By words without knowledge?
Now prepare yourself like a man;
I will question you, and you shall answer Me.
“Where were you when I laid the foundations of the earth?
Tell Me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements?
Surely you know!
Or who stretched the line upon it?
God’s wisdom is perfect and never fail.
“Would you indeed annul My judgment?
Would you condemn Me that you may be justified?
With God, the devil has no match.
The cross became the instrument to save us!
God always show up!
Unbelief if having higher opinion of themselves than to God.
God wants us to come before Him as justifier.
Listen, please, and let me speak;
You said, ‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me. ’
“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,
But now my eye sees You.
Therefore I abhor myself,
And repent in dust and ashes.”
I have nothing and all that i have is yours!
Source of all is God !
There is only one good, God! Small things when we thank God demonstrate we appreciate God
And the Lord restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before.
The Lord restored Job when he prayed for others.
Now the Lord blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys. He also had seven sons and three daughters.
God blesses us with beauty.
In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations. So Job died, old and full of days.
Trials have an ending. By pass all and commit to the Lord!!
