You too can be like Job when you take these decision?

Job mean a certain work that a man engaged to earned his daily bread at a particular period. In other word Job is a name of a person in the bible whose God chose as the perfect and upright man on earth.

   “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job, and that man was a perfect and upright and one that feared God and eschewed evil. And there were born unto him seven son and three daughters…”(Job1:1 vs 3). This was the geographical history of Job in the bible. According to the text it proved that Job  leaved in the city of Uz and he was a perfect man before God and a man that feared God. A perfect man with a tremendous substance.
“Now there was a day when the son of God came to present themselves before Lord, and Satan came also among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and walking Up and Down in it. And the Lord said unto Satan, “Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feared God, and eschewed evil?… “(Job1:6 vs 12).

Who Is Satan? According to the prescribe text, Is Satan the son of God? Why does holy scriptures said ‘And Satan came also among them?’  Why God asked him, ‘Whence comest thou?’. This vividly explained that Satan was not the son of God but opponent, at the same time the questioned previewed that Satan is a reporter of a good child of God. Assume he was among the son of God he would have been classified as the son of God not extra ordinary mentioned by name. Though every living thing has a suspicion reporter. Who is a reporter? A person who heard from you or witness an incident and present it in formed of written document or oral. But anti-reporter is a person who give account of what his brother deed and reported him to his enemy. Satan was (anti-friend/reporter) to all progressive christian. The reason why Satan presented himself in the meeting was unnoticed, it might be another mans’ account that brought him because the bible testified that God asked Satan the purpose of his presentation in there midst in verse seven, “Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going To and Fro in the earth, and walking Up and Down in it…” This purely proved that Satan was hypocrites.

What are Job Quality? According to what God said, “Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feared God, and eschewed evil?”(Job1:13vs21).  Not that Job was the only prophet on earth at the timed when God spoke to Satan but God showed the quality of Job as a perfect and upright man and no one is as perfect as Job on earth. What qualify Job to be a perfect man in the sighted of God? Is it because he offered a burnt offering for himself and his household? or is it because he was the rich man on earth at that time? The answered is “NO” is not because of Job ability that God chose or identified him as a perfect man but for his quality. For instance considered (Job1:13vs19), for a man to loose Five hundred yoke of Oxen; Seven thousand Sheep; Three thousand Camel; Ten Children in a day yet he sinned not to God proved he is able to used what he substance as a burnt offering to God.

Can You…?  (Job2:7)Many timed I looked at the way people cast their selves as a perfect man nowadays and it marveled me, I wondered why we are nothing yet we continue to pretend as if we’re something not knowing to us that we’re deceiving ourselves. Many chose to be a perfect man on earth nowadays and they don’t want to sacrifice for God (loose anything for God). Nothing is permanent forever indeed, Jesus also said, “Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh” and ” But woe unto you that is rich! For ye have received your consolation” (Luke6:21and25).

Some said Job was a perfect and upright man during his ancient day, I dearly disagree with them. Who is bold nowadays to loose half of what Job loosed and yet he will sinned not…? Moreover, people of nowadays are so coward to an extent that they don’t want to loose any general acceptable means of their daily bread, e.g. money, contract, business… yet they cast their selves as a perfect man. Who among the living can witness the dead of five of his children at old age in a year without saying negative word? We sentenced living creature like us to jailed yet we pray to God to can’t us worthy, would those you sentenced to jailed without gotten to the route or gotten a true evidence of what happened before you sentenced them be happy about you? When you’re not there when an  incident occurred, what gives you the assurance that the information you heard from the nearby people is a true evidence?  Nobody want to died but we keep on praying everyday to God to make us worthy for eternal life, though we shall depart day-by-day but there’s some of us that will witness the second coming of Christ face to face with him. Why not possess the quality of Job and remained justified, remembered “It is better to be late than to be late haste waste”

Yes You Can…! What surprised me in Job lesson was the last speech he uttered out from his mouth and his reaction after all the tribulations has fallen upon him, “Then Job arose, and rent his mantle and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshiped, And said, Naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and he hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord” (Job1:20vs22) above all bible verified that he sinned not neither he did not charge God foolishly and yet he worshiped God. This is not a challenge, but a lesson of Job in the bible read the prescribe text (Job1:1vs22; 2:1vs10).  My friend before you can be a perfect man like |Job you have to possess some quality like humbleness, integrity, holiness, love your neighbor, above all you have to be prayerful without specific season, and let the Spirit of Comforter dwell in you.
