Job Chapter 1
Job lived in the land of Uz. He was a faithful and fearful servant of God and led a life without bleamish or sin.
Jobs family consist of seven sons and three daughters so that’s ten children. Job owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred yoke of oxen, five hundred donkeys, and he also had a large amount of servants.
Job was admired among the people in the east and very successful.
Job’s sons would take turns holding feasts in their homes, they would invite their sisters to eat and drink with them. When the feasting was done, the word says Job would send and have them purified.
Early in the morning he would sacrifice a burnt offering for each of them, thinking that maybe his children sinned and cursed God in their hearts, This iwas Jobs regular custom it’s something he did often.
God had blessed Job, bountifully and Job appreciated God and Loved God. Jobs faith was strong, so strong that he made sure that every morning he would sacrifice burnt offerings for his family.
Have you sent up prayers to God for your household (family) Just asked him to cover your whole family and cleaned their hearts of anything that they may have done that was against him. As the person that has a relationship with God we shoukd go to him in petition for the members of our household.
Jobs first test
The bible tells us one day the angels presented themselves to the Lord and satan was with them. The Lord says to satan where have you come from? Satan responds: From roaming through the earth and going back and forth in it.
The Lord says to satan have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on this earth like him; he is blameless and upright; a man who fears God and shuns evil.
Does Job fear God for nothing? Satan replied have you not put a hedge around him and his household everything he has? You have blessed the work of his hands, so that the flocks and herds are spread throughout the land, but stretch out your hand strike everything he has, and he will surely curse you to your face.
The Lord said to satan, very well whatever he has is on your hands, but don’t lay a finger on the man.
Satan went out of the presence of the Lord
One day when Jobs children were feastimg and drinking wine at the oldest brothers house, a messenger came to Job and says; an oxen were plowing and the donkeys were grazing nearby and the sabeans attacked and carried them off, they put servants to the sword and I am the only one who has escaped to tell you.
While that messenger was still speaking another messenger comes and says to Job a fire from God fell from the sky and burned up the sheep and the servants and I am the only one who has eacape to tell you.
While that messenger was speaking another messenger came and said the chaldeans formed three raiding parties and swept down on your camels and carried them off, they put the servants to the sword and I am the only one who has escaped.
As that messenger was still speaking another came and says your sons and daughters were feasting and drinking wine at the oldest brothers house when suddenly a mighty wund swept in from the dessert and struck the four corners of the house It collapsed on them and they are dead and I am the only on who escaped to tell you.
At that point Job got up and torn his robe and shaved his head then he fell to the ground in worship and said.
“Naked I came from my mothers womb , and Naked I will depart.The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away. May the name of the Lord be praised.
In all of this Job did not sin and blame God for the wrong doings.
Glory to God , chapter one. Let me say this Job recieved bad news back to back he could not breath before another piece of bad news came and caught him.
In his faithfulnessJob new that without God he wouldn’t have had anything and praise God because only God has that power.
Did you notice that satan needed the Lords permission to even think about touching Job. Saints I tell you this it’s time for us to see the test and not call ut an attack because when you belong to God you don’t get attacked satan needs Gods permission to test your faith so lets remember when we are going through something to Praise Our Sovereign God for believing us to be strong enough to believe him for being ruler over all. HALLELUJAH.
