TO ALL VISITORS TO THIS BLOG POST, PLEASE SCROLL BACKWARDS TO PART ONE OF “GOD SPEAKS TO JOB THROUGH JAMES” FOR AN INTRODUCTION TO PART TWO.
As promised, herein is Part Two of last week’s blog with the same title. I indicated in Part One that I had written this dialogue between myself and the Holy Spirit some years ago. And that so many revelations were flooding my heart that I had to implore my Lord to slow down and allow me to get a pad and pencil to write them down. Well, once again, in retelling this conversation to my readers, I feel the same excitement and power of the Holy Ghost. It is my prayer that as you read this inspiring message given to me from On High, you will experience the same revelations, too.
So, here goes…and I invite you to share your thoughts by contributing a comment and forwarding it to me.
“God Speaks To Job Through James“
MY BRETHERN, COUNT IT ALL JOY WHEN YOU FALL INTO VARIOUS TRAILS. James 1:2 Job, I know you are not feeling well, but, do you recall when Eliphaz said, ...'Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty'. Job 5:17 KNOWING THAT THE TESTING OF YOUR FAITH PRODUCES PATIENCE. James 1:3 Well, Eliphaz said that after your calamity came upon you, you declared that you wished you were dead, for you said, 'There the wicked ceased from troubling, and there the weary are at rest.' Job 3:17 BUT LET PATIENCE HAVE IT'S PERFECT WORK, THAT YOU MAY BE PERFECT AND COMPLETE, LACKING NOTHING. James 1:4 But from the very beginning, Job, you kept declaring how righteous you were and that there was no advantage to be gained if you were cleansed from your sin. Job 35:3 I was right there when you said, 'Though he slay me, yet will I trust him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before him.' Job 13:15 IF ANY OF YOU LACKS WISDOM, LET HIM ASK OF GOD, WHO GIVES TO ALL LIBERALLY AND WITHOUT REPROACH, AND IT WILL BE GIVEN TO HIM. James 1:5 Honestly, Job, you should not have added that last part about maintaining your own ways, for you have spoken without knowledge and your words were without wisdom. Job 34:35 BUT LET HIM ASK IN FAITH, WITH NO DOUBTING, FOR HE WHO DOUBTS IS LIKE A WAVE OF THE SEA DRIVEN AND TOSSED BY THE WIND. James 1:6 Our true friend Elihu suggested the manner in which you should have prayed, remember...For has anyone said to God, 'I have borne chastening; I will offend no more; teach me what I do not see;' Job 35:31, 32a BLESSED IS THE MAN WHO ENDURES TEMPTATION; FOR WHEN HE HAS BEEN APPROVED, HE WILL RECEIVE THE CROWN OF LIFE WHICH THE LORD HAS PROMISED TO THIOSE WHO LOVE HIM. James 1:12 Job, stop that...Do not desire the night. For people that are in darkness are cut off. Shhhh,...Lest he take you away with one blow. Then a Great Ransom (Jesus) cannot deliver you and you will not receive the crown of life. Job 36:20, 33:24b SO, THEN, MY BELOVED BRETHREN, LET EVERY MAN BE SWIFT TO HEAR, SLOW TO SPEAK, SLOW TO WRATH; James 1:19 Oh, good, Job! You have calmed down. You have repented to God by declaring...'Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer you?" I lay my hand over my mouth.' Job 40:4 THEREFORE, LAY ASIDE ALL FILTHINESS AND OVERFLOW OF WICKEDNESS, AND RECEIVE WITH MEEKNESS THE IMPLANTED WORD, WHICH IS ABLE TO SAVE YOUR SOULS. James 1:21 Then Job answered the Lord and said: 'I know that you can do everything, and that no purpose of yours can be withheld from you.' Job 42:1-2 Furthermore, I receive with all meekness the engrafted word. For my own words were hollow without understanding and knowledge. Therefore, I have uttered what I did not understand, things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.' Job 42:3 IF ANYONE AMONG YOU THINKS HE IS RELIGIOUS, AND DOES NOT BRIDLE HIS TONGUE, BUT DECEIVES HIS OWN HEART, THIS ONE'S RELIGION IS USELESS. James 1:26 Oh, Job, how wonderful our God is! For after you repented in dust and ashes and bridled your tongue and harnessed your deceitful thoughts, the Bible says,.. And the Lord restored Job's losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. Amen! Job 42:10
