  1. I don’t know a satisfactory answer to the problem of an inexpressibly and unimaginably kind God creating with the knowledge that certain individuals would end up under His wrath… except, perhaps: creation is an expression of Himself (and He must honestly express, since He is limited to His good nature [Ts 1:2]), so should He be denied the praise of His glorious kindness just because some people will rebel against His kindness, and be a cause for Him to glorify His goodness by expressing His wrath on evil?

    God never does wrong, and I don’t want to accuse Him of wrong; but I still look forward to a more exhaustive and satisfactory answer in the future.

  2. I do not think it is wrong to ask questions like this. I will be interested in reading the new book MB has written on Job. Did he not contemplate on questions such as this?

  3. Re Iran debacle.

    The Sanhedrin in Israel is calling President Obama to trial for … plan to bring the American president to trial on Mount Zion on September 9, 2015.

    Ted Cruz is going to have a rally In Washington September 9th 2015.

    Is God at work here?

  4. Also, even though there are those that deny God, some of their children, grand children, and so on, will love the Lord and spend eternity with Him. So Him not creating because some would hate Him did not outweigh the love that would be shared between many others and their children, with Him. Creation then results in unimaginable love toward mankind.

  5. As far as who was Job’s adversary, I think it’s important to remember that both God and Satan were his adversaries, one was intent on his utter destruction, and the other was intent on his salvation, healing, and deliverance. God finally won and Job was delivered. Quite a spiritual battle, it was. We all go through the same things to some degree or another in this world. We all have plenty to learn from this book. It’s very rich in wisdom and instruction.

    I’m amazed at the ministry Job had to others. See chapter 29 on this. Job must have been a great benefit to others, even though at times such ministers do make some mistakes and cause some suffering to others. I believe that tends to happen to all of us.

  6. Elihu was a good “type” or shadow of Christ.

    I remember reading this book and then somebody other than Job’s 3 friends shows up, and he has a real identity, and a real existence, somebody that was there all along, and helped prepare him for meeting God in judgment, according to Job’s wish, of having some kind of intercessor.

  7. Do you know what I think happened to Job?

    Let’s look at a verse from Proverbs.

    Prov 4:18

    But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

    Then comes an exhortation to keep the Word with all diligence.

    Over a process of time, can a man begin to get taken in by all the things of the world, getting prosperous and comfortable, slowly going backward in the things of God, bit by bit, until his days begin to get spiritually dimmer and dimmer?

    That can happen to a man. It can happen to anybody. It might have happened to Job, and he might not have had written scripture although it seems that men that have knowledge and understanding are always about writing books.

    And then trouble came.

    But did you notice it was the Lord who came to Satan, and initiated the conversation about Job?

    Now that may cut across some people’s theology, I don’t know.

  8. I’d like to suggest to all, ordering an e-book from Morningstar ministries called “Overcoming Confusion.” Proverbs 4:18 is a key verse from it.

  9. So what changed Job? It was a revelation of the glory of the Lord, a meeting with him.

    The Church is being built on the revelation of Christ and Jesus said the gates of hell would not prevail against it.

  10. People often ask about the conversations between Satan and the Lord, and about Job.

    No doubt Job was one of the spiritual greats. Look into his ministry he talked about in chapter 29.

    The Lord knows everything about us and watches everything we do, but he doesn’t have to reveal every detail.

    Job was no doubt one of the great servants of God, one of the greats of all time. He’s worthy of great mention in the Bible, and he is mentioned that way not only in the book of Job but elsewhere.

    The Lord asked Satan his opinion of him, and as far as Job’s greatness, his reputation had made history. I believe Job’s greatness was still true of him, but the Lord doesn’t have to reveal everything does he?

    That book has so much to teach us, discernment being one of those things.
