The Book of Job - Part 3

Commentaries explaining God's control, human suffering, and the relationship between the two.

Chapters 22-32

Blindness...

When Jesus taught about self-righteousness, He compared this issue by using the example of our vision. Jesus commanded His people to abstain from judging in self-righteousness because self-righteousness causes distorted vision. Jesus compared the distorted vision of the self-righteous to a person having a wooden plank...

Job 22:1-20

The Value Of Change

The concept of repentance is a concept that has developed a negative connotation over the years. In its simplest form, repentance refers to a change of mind. However, it is important to understand that we cannot change our own minds. According to the Bible, the natural human heart is hardened and unrepentant. How...

Job 22:21-30

Dealing With Contention

The Bible explains that there is a big gap in understanding between the way things actually are, and the way we as people perceive things. Our knowledge is limited. The things we see are often examined with distorted perspective. Most importantly, we don’t have great insight into the things of the spiritual plane of reality, which...

Job 23:1-7

The Invisible Hand Of God

The work of the Lord is hard to understand. Not only is it spiritual in nature, but often times, the hand of God that does the work is impossible to see. The Bible teaches that it is impossible to see God the Father and live. When Jesus came into the world, He said that those who had seen Him had also seen the Father. However, that...

Job 23:8-13

Why Do Bad Things Happen To Good People?

The Bible teaches that God is not a respecter of persons. This means that God doesn’t show favoritism of any kind to any person. He is merciful to all people based on when He wants to show mercy. He is gracious to all people based on when He wants to show grace. Evidence of this truth is profoundly shown in the sacrifice of...

Job 23:14-17

Who Knows?

The Bible teaches that God’s ways are not like our ways. His thoughts are not like our thoughts. The context of this teaching deals with God’s mercy. God’s nature and character is based on mercy. This is contrary to human nature. People love vengeance and justice based on self-righteousness. God loves mercy and compassion. His...

Job 24:1-25

Ending Arguments

The world is full of disputes. People argue all of the time about numerous things. Often times these arguments are pointless and harmless. However, perhaps just as frequently, there are arguments and disagreements that are damaging and cause tragic consequences. The question was posed many years ago, “Can’t we all just get...

Job 25:1-6

Can Words Change Lives?

The Bible teaches that God’s people should be slow to speak and quick to listen. This is good sound wisdom. Often times, people will talk beyond their expertise and wisdom. Many times, people will speak on things on which they are not qualified to speak, having little understanding and insight. Often times people will make...

Job 26:1-4

Can We Really Know God?

However much we think we know of God, it is critical to understand that we really know very little. If we were to add up all of the insight, knowledge, and understanding of every great theologian throughout human history, it would still fall FAR short of explaining the full depth of who God really is! The scriptures proclaim that God is...

Job 26:5-14

The Transcendent Righteousness Of God

The Bible teaches that God is fair and just. He is not a respecter of persons, which means that He doesn’t play favorites with people. The scriptures state that God brings rain on the just and the unjust. In a positive sense, this means that God brings opportunity for growth and prosperity to both the believer and non-believer. In a...

Job 27:1-6

Hypocrisy

When Jesus spoke to the Jewish religious leaders of His day in Matthew Chapter 23, He made the following statement several time, “Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!” Previously, Jesus had taught on the Sermon on the Mount that unless our righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, we will, by no...

Job 27:7-10

The Truth About Judgment

The world is filled with darkness. Even things that seem to be good at one point in time, can manifest some difficult characteristics later in time. In this regard, the Bible teaches that the devil can make himself appear as an angel of light. Though the Lord is supremely in charge of all things, the devil does have authority over this...

Job 27:11-23

Knowing And Understanding God

The Bible explains that true wisdom is from God. Some teach that wisdom is simply the application of knowledge; that is, the ability to know right and wrong, and then when to do what is right or wrong. The wisdom of God is far more than that. There is more to God’s wisdom. God’s wisdom certainly deals with His...

Job 28:1-28

Cherishing The Goodness Of God

When God provides, He does so with eternal and spiritual purposes. He intends for His provision to be used for purposes that result in His glory. Thus, while God is known as “the Lord Who Will Provide,” it is important that we recognize, honor, and cherish the hand of God that forms and delivers rather than getting stuck on the things...

Job 29:1-6

Serving The Lord

The Bible has a lot to say about money, influence, and wealth from a material perspective. The Bible refers to money as amoral – that is, a substance that is neither good nor bad. The Bible shows that manner in which money is used is what makes it good or bad, but the substance in and of itself is nothing. This means that...

Job 29:7-17

Relationships

The Bible teaches that the human heart/soul is naturally selfish. People most often seek to do things to gratify self or someone else, not God. If not for the supernatural intervention of God by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, people would continue to live for self rather than worship God, and continually offend Him as a result...

Job 29:18-25

When LIfe Abruptly Changes

The Bible presents some exceptionally difficult points to consider about our human nature. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church and asked the question, “What makes us differ from one another?” The Apostle Peter explained in the Book of Acts that God is not a respecter of persons. When Paul wrote to the church in...

Job 30:1-19

Why Is God Silent?

The Bible teaches a harsh and difficult lesson about the manner in which God deals with people. He is not obligated to provide certain comforts or luxuries in this life. The scriptures teach that God is not a respecter of persons. He doesn’t play favorites, and since we all fall short of God’s glory, we should all receive His...

69

Job 30:20-31

Victory Over Sexual Immorality

The constant and consistent teaching of the Bible is that “the just shall live by faith.” This means that people do not receive God’s approval and favor based on things we do, but instead by what we believe. The testimony of scripture explains that as depraved human beings, we are totally unable to do anything pleasing to God unless...

Job 31:1-12

Serving The Needy

Jesus gave the disciples a lot of information and sound teaching at the Last Supper. At that time, He taught them how to continuing follow Him in His absence. Jesus taught the disciples how to remain His disciples after His death, resurrection, and ascension. He emphasized how it important it was that they continue walking...

Job 31:13-23

Attitudes About Money

The Bible explains that idolatry is one of the most offensive things to God. When God gave the Ten Commandments, the first three commandments dealt with this issue. God explained that He was the LORD God who delivered the children of Israel from the bondage of Egypt. He was the One that made the false gods and...

Job 31:24-28

Dealing With Enemies

When Jesus taught the Sermon on the Mount, documented in Matthew Chapters 5-7, He made a compelling statement about the quality of love God demands from people. Jesus first exposed the flawed traditional teaching of the Jewish religious leaders. They were teaching the people that it was common, permissible, and...

Job 31:29-34

A Clear Conscience

The Bible teaches that one of the rewards of saving faith is a clean conscience. The scriptures explain that God provides peace that surpasses understanding, and one of the ways that God does so is by providing a clear conscience concerning our relationship with Him. The Gospel of...

Job 31:35-40

Truth From Unlikely Sources

The Bible is not an easy book to deal with. The scriptures say some tough things about the truth of the human race. The Bible itself proclaims and proves that it is God’s own Word. The Bible is God’s truth. The Bible is reflective of God’s perspective regarding human affairs and issues...
