SHORT STORIES; THE WAY IT IS FROM GOD AND MAN (2)

About Job and His Faith

One of my greatest brothers in Christ is Job because he was as an example from God regarding the kind of faith that we all will need for survival during the great tribulation coming closer each day. He was a righteousness man that did no wrong, and his faith was so strong that in the mornings of the days of their feastings he offered burnt sacrifices for his own children according to the number of them all. He was a very wealthy man with a total of about eleven thousand head in various livestock. Then with no warning everything that he had in wealth and servants was gone. Then on top of that came another messenger to tell him of the deaths of all his sons and daughters. How would you feel if your whole life was just all of a sudden destroyed and taken from you without warning or knowledge? So what was the reaction from a man of God?

Job said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly. 1:21-22
Now I ask you, is that not amazing faith in God when you lose your wealth and loved ones while never turning against our Lord God?

God tests all His chosen ones through many various degrees of chastisement to prepare them for His use.

Again there was a day when Satan came before God and Satan was given permission to do to Job whatever he desired, only spare his life.

So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord and smote Job with boils from the toe of his foot unto his crown. And Job fell into a painful and disgusting appearance with words from his own wife saying to him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? Curse God, and die. Can you imagine with all your loss of everything including your own self as healthy your loving wife saying those words to you?

But Job 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 Job not sin with his lips. 2:9-10

Just how much more faith in God our unseen creator could one want?

The words of God within the Holy Bible are not there for reading entertainment of history for our education for pleasures; but for our education on what’s going to be required to gain God’s favor that will keep you alive during the great tribulation. Psalms 91 is but one of very many examples of what God will do for those that come only to Him with no man in the middle to block, change and distort thy word is truth.
