While a book that so flamboyantly questions the moral order of the universe, and even God, does not obviously fit into the Hebrew Bible, it is at home in the Western Canon, a source of inspiration for writers ranging from Shakespeare to Kafka. University scholars are at a loss as to when and why the Book of Job .   “God does speak — sometimes one way and sometimes another — even though people may not understand it” (Job NCV). A lot of us think we’re too busy to listen for God’s response. But we have to take the time to tune in and listen, because God is speaking. Job had a good life and trusted completely in God, but then many terrible things happened to him (for example, he lost all his children and fell ill). In spite of his terrible fate, he continued to trust in God. The evil things in his life came from Satan (the devil), who thought that Job only believed because he had a good life [qtip: (Job )| Job Now there was a day when the. God speaks. And the book of Job reminds us that one of the most likely places for us to hear God is in the midst of our suffering. (This changes how we respond to suffering.) God has spoken through creation, Jesus, and now His Word and he most often has our ear when we are suffering.

Despite its challenges, I find the book of Job fascinating and filled with much good for the Christian. Studying the book of Job, we can learn of God's power, wisdom, and sovereignty in the world; we can see how men of God grappled with the question of God's justice; and we can observe that God does take notice of the righteous.   We should also learn from Job's experience to maintain patient respect and trust in God even in the midst of our sufferings (James James [10] Take, my brothers, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. And in Genesis God speaks to Adam and Eve to let them know the consequences of their disobedience to the one thing He told them not to do. #6 God Speaks Life Application through True Biblical Accounts & Counsel. The Story of Joseph in Genesis 37 reminds us that even through adversity we can have a Godly response to undesirable circumstances.   Finally God speaks and he sets it completely right. Then there is the last chapter that puts the closure on the whole thing. There it says that God brought all of this upon Job; and Job proves in the end to be a better man than these other men, even though Job himself sinned and had to .

Summary After being silent throughout the dialogues between Job and his friends, God finally speaks to Job out of the whirlwind. God does not answer their questions about Job's guilt or innocence, but rather speaks about the created order and contrasts what God can do. When the young man Elihu speaks later, he piles on more accusations of Job walking in the company of the wicked and of Job drinking up mockery (of God) like water ().

Job is insulted and hurt (). There is little in the Book of Job to give an indication that’s it’s a true story (such as a time and place) even by the lax standards of the Bible. Suddenly God speaks out of a whirlwind.

This caught me by surprise because there was no mention of a. Verse 7. - And it was so, that after the Lord had spoken these words unto "words" intended seem to be those of ch.not any words in the earlier portion of this chapter. God heard Job's confession in silence, and, without further speech to him, addressed Eliphaz and his "friends.".

The book of Job questions God's justice. Will upright and blameless Job continue to serve God even if he loses everything. Job Accuses God Job accuses God of acting unjustly while his friends blame him for wrongdoing. They all believe God operates the universe according to strict rules of justice.

2. God is always in Control. Read Job A. It’s a fact that humans are control freaks. Take it away and you take away their integrity. The Devil knows this and uses it to his advantage. He tried it with Job by challenging God Job will turn his back on Him if Job loses even God listens book of When Job speaks life.

The Devil does the same to us today. Job Responds to Zophar 6 The tents of robbers are safe, and those who provoke God are secure—those who carry their god in their hands. 7 But ask the animals, and they will instruct you; ask the birds of the air, and they will tell you.

8 Or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; let the fish of the sea inform you. GOD'S WORD® Translation Or speak with the earth, and it will teach you.

Even the fish will relate [the story] to you. JPS Tanakh Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee; And the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee; New American Standard “Or speak to the earth, and let it When Job speaks you; And let the fish of the sea declare. At the end of the Book Of Job, God tells the acquaintances of Job, who have denigrated, accused, and chastised Job, to prepare sacrifices; but He also tells them not to pray in offering the sacrifices, because He will not listen to their prayers.

However, He tells these men He. Job listens in silent agreement. And when Elihu is finished, God speaks to Job and not to Elihu. And so now we want to know what more God has to say to Job.

Let's look and see. Job on Trial Before God. Job"Gird up your loins like a man, I will question you, and you shall declare to me." God has been questioned by Job long enough. If Job can thunder with a voice like God's, adorn himself with majesty, splendor, glory and beauty, bring the proud down low, then God would confess that Job could save himself.

To once more illustrate the power and wisdom of God, Job is asked to consider two great creatures, the behemoth and Leviathan. 3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness() 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.) And there was evening, and there was morning —the first day6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault.

GOD'S WORD® Translation "God speaks in one way, even in two ways without people noticing it: JPS Tanakh For God speaketh in one way, Yea in two, though man perceiveth it not. New American Standard “Indeed God speaks once, Or twice, yet no one notices it. King James Bible For God speaks once, yea twice, yet man perceives it not.

The Book of Job (/ dʒ oʊ b /; Hebrew: אִיּוֹב ‎ – ʾIyyōḇ) is a book of the Hebrew addresses the problem of theodicy, meaning why God permits evil in the world. Job is a wealthy and God-fearing man with a comfortable life and a large family; God, having asked Satan (Hebrew: הַשָּׂטָן ‎ – haśśāṭān, literally "the accuser") for his opinion of Job's.

In conclusion, God identifies Job as a faultfinder and dares him to justify himself any further (Job ). Seeing his minuscule role in the natural creation, Job properly humbles himself and shuts up (Job ). But God’s second speech must blow Job’s mind even further, and to do so it focuses on the supernatural creation.

But the book of Job trips up modernizing readings, too, not least with its apparently bullying God. There is a sense in which any interpretation of a text renders it a book. After hearing God speak, Job came to know God in a real and intimate way.

He says, “My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you” (). He did know God before this; he feared God and lived a life that was pleasing to Him; he worshiped God in truth. However, now he has a far more real and intimate knowledge of God than ever before.

This man was blameless and upright; he feared God and shunned evil. 2 He had seven sons and three daughters, 3 and he owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen and five hundred donkeys, and had a large number of servants.

He was the greatest man among all the people of the East. 4 His. Chapter 38 brings us, at last, to what looks like the answer we have been looking for. God is about to speak to Job. The silence is broken. The resolution of Job’s queries about life and tragedy are about to be explained" "Then the LORD answered Job " ().

God hasn’t made any sense to Job so far, but all that is about to change.

(Job ) - "Then the Lord said to Satan, "Behold, all that he has is in your power, only do not put forth your hand on him.".

In addition, if God spoke in a loud booming voice, not only would Job hear, but so would his unhelpful friends. God would put them in their place, or so Job hopes. And, later, when God does speak to Job, it’s out of the storm (Job ). And what accompanies a storm.

Job was confident God knew about him and what was going on, even if Job didn’t know where God was nor what He was up to (Job ). He was confident good would come from this test. He believed God would refine him, not destroy him.

We must reaffirm our commitment to serve God no matter what He seems to do to us. Job does not curse God here or anywhere else in the Book of Job; but here he makes his strongest statements against God and especially against the wisdom and plan of God.

“As God had said in Genesis‘Let there be light,’ so Job, using the same terminology in Jobsaid, ‘As for that day, let there be darkness’ (literal.
