Research on Job's Friends

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eliphaz_(Job)
Eliphaz (Job)From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Jump to: navigation, search

Fresco from the Cathedral of the Annunciation depicting Job and his friends.For the first-born son of Esau, see Eliphaz.

Eliphaz is called a Temanite (Job 4:1). He appears in the Book of Job in the Hebrew Bible.



Eliphaz appears mild and modest; in his first reply to Job's complaints, he argues that those who are truly good are never entirely forsaken by Providence, but that punishment may justly be inflicted for secret sins. He denies that any man is innocent and censures Job for asserting his freedom from guilt. Eliphaz exhorts Job to confess any concealed iniquities to alleviate his punishment. His arguments are well supported but God declares at the end of the book that Eliphaz believed an erroneous view of divine dispensations. Job offers a sacrifice to God for Eliphaz's error.



Eliphaz, the first of the three visitors of Job (Job ii. 11), surnamed "the…

God Protects

COME:
Genesis 7
22All in whose nostrils was the breath of life, of all that was in the dry land, died. 23And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.

HEAR:Again, God in his Mercy finds a man, not a perfect man but one that will serve God. Just as Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as Righteousness so here Noah believed God, as evidenced by his undertaking this HUGE building project with no sign that it would be needed. Yet again, in the midst of sin God seeks to protect and cover. He finds one man willing to believe and covers him and his family. He protects the seed of Eve though him.



DO:Believe God today...

Grace and Mercy (Fall and Redemption)

COME: Genesis 3
21Also for Adam and his wife the Lord God made tunics of skin, and clothed them. 22Then the Lord God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”— 23therefore the Lord God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. 24So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Genesis 4
13And Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear! 14Surely You have driven me out this day from the face of the ground; I shall be hidden from Your face; I shall be a fugitive and a vagabond on the earth, and it will happen thatanyone who finds me will kill me.” 15And the Lord said to him, “Therefore, whoever kills Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” And the Lord set a mark on Cain, lest anyone …

Two thoughts

“Submission recognizes the need for authority in order to avoid chaos while bringing meaning and direction to a particular group. We should measure any direction given by the standard of God’s Word before we decide whether or not to obey it.” Mac Hammond

Are you worried and fretting over your job? Are you fighting them over their decisions? How can you give God the care of your business when you can't even let your company have the care of theirs?

Parable of Two Sons

COME:Luke 15:11-32New International Version (NIV) The Parable of the Lost Son11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons.12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.
13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living.
HEAR:BOTH son's were part of the family first, one left to do some wild living and the other son stayed and did his duty but with no real joy of serving. BOTH sons were wrong. However I just noticed something else...

BOTH sons were sons. One wasn't adopted in. Therefore both these boys were part of the family of God, both were "saved" and they went two ways. One served religiously, one went off on his own and ignored his status as a son. Both were of the family.

This isn't a story of someone coming to Christ. This is a story of people who are already IN Christ needing to learn w…

Leviathan

I've always thought of leviathan as the dragon flying in the sky, but the verses that talk of it indicate it is a deep see creature, that breathes fire. Could be interesting for later study...




Psalms 104
24O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. 25So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts. 26There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. 27These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.



Job 41:1 (KJV)Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?
Psalms 74:14 (KJV)Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
Psalms 104:26 (KJV)There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
Isaiah 27:1 (KJV)In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong swor…
