Job, a rich man who was a believer in God, but he was a “baby Christian”. Just as God sees us perfect, holy, and righteous, this is how He saw Job. God is the Alpha and Omega and He was looking at Job’s end. Job had a lot of fear in him which allowed the devil to take everything he had except his own life. Job was very upset at God. Job had 3 friends who came on the scene and tried to tell him why all these bad things had happened. One day a preacher of righteousness comes along and tells Job that he and his 3 friends are wrong about God. God is a good God and does not afflict anyone. Then God comes on the scene and says “who is this person that is speaking wrong things about Me”. Job finally realizes that he and his 3 friends were wrong about God. Job repents of his sin and says that he did not know God very well in the beginning, but now he has seen the true nature of God. Then God gives Job back a double portion of what he had in the beginning. Job had sons again and some of the most beautiful daughters in the whole land. Job also lived to be 140 years old and saw 4 generations of his family.
Therefore, as Jesus said: “Moses said this …., BUT I SAY THIS…..”
And since Job said: “the Lord has given and the Lord has taken away”
So I say this: THE LORD GIVES AND SATAN TAKES AWAY!
