When Christians are going through suffering, not to be classed as The friends of Job giving totally WRONG council.

Rely ONLY on God's Truth for counsel.Only God is the answer...God was silent and Job went to the counsel of men.God finally spoke and declared who he was..Ch:38. All the counsel Eliphaz and his two friends was not Accurate..Ch42,7-8.We should not get side-tracked with the traditions of men,these tradition will lead us astray.Seek God's counsel,the Endurance will come from HIS WISDOM.Sermons have been preached using the words these men gave to Job...God himself said what was spoken was not right.

No matter what we may go through with, we need to hold on to God's unchanging hand. I have been through alot lately, and if I hadn't held on to God's word and stand firm, I'd really be in a tormol. We shouldn't focas on what Job went through with, we need to focas on what he gained in the end. Sometimes we have to go through the fire, to get to the fire, (victory).

The main lesson that is being taught in the book of Job is that some things that happen to us in life is not a result of our bad choices but is a result of Satan wanting to discourage us from trusting in God.

greetings.Frank.If Job was "perfect"(completion of righteousness and without sin) then Paul's claim that all have sinned(unrighteousness within) is untrue. What God is not teaching is making an agreement with Satan (an evil, rebellious, degenerate and evil son).Is this not called a deal with the devil?

What God is teaching here is this>>>AND Hallelujah for it. We learn God does put a hedge around his own people, and only what he permits is allowed to pass through. Job was not a self righteous man as some false preachers people suggests. God had already said to the devil what a godly man he was, How faithful and so forth.>>>>Lessons to learn apply them>>> Knowing God is better than knowing answers. [a good one for me]. Pain is not always punishment. [a good one for everyone]

The end of a thing is sweeter than the beginning. "Take my brothers the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction and of patience. Here, we count them blessed which endure. You all have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end intended by the Lord, that the Lord is very pitiful and of tender mercy." James 5:10,11.

We should always trust(have faith in) & obey God in the good " & " bad times. When we don't know why & are very distressed by things happening in our lives,we must draw even closer to God & trust Him to meet our needs. (Ps. 23)

God's "servant" Job is a Supreme example of how born-again "servants of God" should perserver in the midst of lifes daily fires(tests). Job's testing is a timelessly valuable,faith-based lesson for Christians of all ages.

The Lord said Job was perfect, upright, feared God and eschewed evil!
It is not wise to speak against a servant of God that was an example to the extent that his name is recorded with such a description. Many today are as his comforters and if they would hold their peace it would be their wisdom!
There is obviously a lacking of spiritual discernment to blasphemy and twist his trials and tribulations as they do here.
Many are going to regret their words at the judgment seat of the throne of God!
---Frank on 7/18/07

greetings.A close study of Job's conversations will reveal he was very arrogant.He believed his selfrighteousness was righteousness earned and he did not deserve any affliction,pain death of children or sorrows.He believed God is unjust for his actions on him and his family and challenged God for an answer.Satan was not the focus or the focal point of Job's disapproval for his afflictions.What kind of God kills our families and tortures us with afflictions?Did not God approve Satan killing Job's family?
