Another starless night...! and its becoming a pattern...!

I think we wrote sometime ago about a starless night and now I have another one. A pattern is forming a rut. Let's turn to another starless night the Lord had, but he did something about it. I look outside my front door at night and see the pole lamp and say thank you Lord what a beautiful moon. You know we need help when we say that! But lets' turn to Genesis 1:1-5, ["...1In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. 5And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day...] Now God had a sleepless night and looked out his window and there wasn't any stars to look at or nothing to think about. And it was dark out there. I wonder how the Lord felt in such a darkness or what ever it was before anything was!? But God decided to do something about the nothingness and the darkness. And he created the universe, heaven and earth and the first day... Now we turn to another darkness, Job 1:1-10, ["... 1There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil. 2And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. 3His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she *****, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. 4And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them. 5And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. 6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them. 7And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it. 8And 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 feareth God, and escheweth evil? 9Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? 10Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land...] Now you would think blessed Job would be enlightened and no need for improving something or some. And I like this study because I defend the prosperity the practice of the truth naturally brings. Apple trees bring apples, vines bring grapes and thistles bring thorns and so on. I would ask myself the same question Satan said "He loves ya because of the fat blessings...!" The Laodiceans were rich, well outside! But righteous, perfect Job needed Christ as well! Like everyone else! We skip to Job 38:1-5, ["... 1Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, 2Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge? 3Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me. 4Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding. 5Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?...] Job made a mistake and took the liberty to question the wisdom and supreme Diety of Christ who is God! And don't we do that often? We think we are without error? Job 31:5-8, ["...2For what portion of God is there from above? and what inheritance of the Almighty from on high? 3Is not destruction to the wicked? and a strange punishment to the workers of iniquity? 4Doth not he see my ways, and count all my steps? 5If I have walked with vanity, or if my foot hath hasted to deceit; 6Let me be weighed in an even balance that God may know mine integrity...] Remember the Pharisee and the Tax Collector, "I tithe, I fast, I don't committ adultery, I pray...!" But what was Job final assesment of himself after God finished with him! But before Jobs last mistake, to ask God to give account for his actions or judging the very God, Job 31:35-40, ["... 35Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me, and that mine adversary had written a book. 36Surely I would take it upon my shoulder, and bind it as a crown to me. 37I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him. 38If my land cry against me, or that the furrows likewise thereof complain; 39If I have eaten the fruits thereof without money, or have caused the owners thereof to lose their life: 40Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended...] And don't we do that often measure God by men reasoning of logic of right and wrong. So we said the end of Job and his pride, Job 42:1-6, ["...1Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. 3Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 6Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes...] Job finally gave Christ his place as Supreme God and Creator, all-knowing, and understanding... Blessings. Good Night, Day and morning... thbg

All the luminaries in the bible, the heroes and great men and women of old have a certain appeal for their faith and works they brought on to God and the Lord. But the Cross makes all these luminaries or stars fall from the sky or heaven if you will. If God himself became a servant to serve us, how much more is that expected of anyone else we think of greats in the bible. Mortal man needs God to go to heaven and namely the Servant Christ...

Certaily Job was righteous and perfect, but it went to his head that he was righteous and perfect and began to equal himself in the level of God. Which was a mistake to compare ourselves with Glorious God. Indeed God became flesh and weak of sorts, but ne never ceased to be the great I AM responsible for the creation of everyone and heaven, the earth and the universe...

Blessings. Chow!
