But on your thinking caps, and take a journey into what’s suppose to be, but isn’t.
Have you ever noticed that fault finders though completely rebuked rebound? Most likely because high mindedness never likes a scorching scolding. It could well be called getting even.
And that’s what happen to Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar. So Eliphaz fuels his tank, and comes after Job, again! “You think you are a wise man. But your answers were filled with vain knowledge, no more effective than a gentle east breeze on a hot and humid summer day.”
Job, “You iniquity teaches you mouth, and you choose the language of the crafty. Job your own mouth condemns you, and not I. Yes, your own lips testify against you.”
Job, “Are you the first man who was born? Has God taken you aside, and provided you with secret counsel? And because of that council, do you limit wisdom to yourself? What do you know that we don’t know? What do you understand which is not within us? Job, you have turned your spirit against God, by the very words that fall out of your mouth.”
Job, “It is impossible for a man to be righteous who is born of a woman. God doesn’t trust His holy ones, so why would He trust you? Even the heavens are not clean in His sight. How much less you, who is an abomination and is corrupt. Who drinks iniquity like water!”
“Pay attention Job, I will share with you all of which I have learned. This wisdom has been handed down to me from one generation to the next. It’s clear, Job, men like you are tortured by pain all his days, even to the full extent of his numbered years.”
Job, “The sound of terror rings in your ears. Because, you knew that the Destroyer of prosperity would come. Clearly manifested with what He has done to you. Your empire is gone, as are your ten children.”
Job, “You wonder about confused, it’s like a darkness where no light can be seen allowing for recover. Desiring that death would free you of your misery. You want God to return to you, the magnificence of your lost empire. You keep asking Him where is it? Unfortunately, Job only distress and anguish awaits you. And that, Job makes you afraid. Because you know, you can’t prevail because He is greater than a king ready for battle.”
Job, “You have stiffened your resolve against Him. As though its some kind of a thick shield.”
Job, “Your physical appearance is pathetic. You have been forced to take up residency in the most undesirable of places. It’s questionable if residency there provides a healthy and safe environment. Nevertheless, you continue to say that God sees you as being justified, when it isn’t so. Where you now live that’s the best you can expect!”
Job, “You will never make your way out of darkness. Because every attempt you make a flame will burn your branches up Because it comes from the mouth of God. Job, you can’t continue with such emptiness. Can’t you see that your emptiness is, and, will continue to be your reward.”
Job, “The accomplishments of the godless are barren just like fire consumes ones tents. That is the result of behavior like yours that conceives mischief that produces iniquity. It comes from the heart, and your heart prepares only deceit.”
This discussion was developed from Job 15:1-35. Through the us of analytical interpretation. Taught at divinity schools as the science of exegesis.
Life is complex, and stepped with many troublesome pitfalls. Including the church hierarchy, some whom claim to speak for God, but really, they are speaking for themselves.
For this discussion Zliphaz, adequately demonstrates how that role is played. The self righteous are dangerous, and it’s important to know your Bible. Because often they are the puppets of unseen forces, all controlled by the Angel of Light. (cp. 2 Corinthians 11:14-15).
Truth can be difficult to understand concerning many disciplines, and Christendom isn’t exempt. It’s impossible to separate truth from non-truths. Apart from having a personal, and sincere relationship with Jesus. Even then you are not exempt from attacks by the accomplices of the Angel of Light, or by the Angel of Light. That was taught in an earlier discussion within this series.
So if you are not one of us through Christ Jesus, then follow the prompts found in Romans 10:9-10. Then notice verses 11-13, all of which creates the universality so many seek. And if our paths don’t cross in this world, they will in the next.
