11-22-2012- GOD GIVES - GOD TAKES


JOB 1: 20-22 =

(20) THEN JOB AROSE AND TORE HIS ROBE AND SHAVED HIS HEAD AND FELL DOWN ON THE GROUND AND WORSHIPED.

(21) AND SAID, NAKED CAME I OUT OF MY MOTHERS WOMB AND NAKED SHALL I RETURN THERE: THE LORD GAVE AND THE LORD HAS TAKEN AWAY; BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD. 

(22) IN ALL THIS, JOB SINNED NOT, NOR CHARGED GOD FOOLISHLY.


"REMARKS"


IT IS A SAD STORY ON THE SURFACE, JOB LOST ALL HE HAD AND YET, HE HAD ENOUGH FAITH TO BELIEVE GOD WOULD HAVE REGARD FOR HIS LIFE.


THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE VERSES IN THE SCRIPTURES. IT REMINDS US TO NEVER GET TOO UPSET  OVER THINGS LOST OR GONE BUT, TO ALWAYS PRAISE AND WORSHIP GOD, YAH'WEH, THROUGH THE GOOD AND THE BAD, FOR WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOU AND WHAT HE WILL DO.


YOU SEE, ALL SCRIPTURES ARE GIVEN TO US FOR OUR LEARNING, AS THIS ONE DOES, SO WELL.


ROMANS 15: 4 = FOR WHATSOEVER THINGS WERE WRITTEN IN THE PAST TIME, WERE WRITTEN FOR OUR LEARNING, THAT WE, THROUGH PATIENCE AND COMFORT OF THE SCRIPTURES, MIGHT HAVE HOPE.


HERE AGAIN, THESE WORDS AND STORIES OF THE PAST, WERE WRITTEN SO, WE COULD TRUDGE ON THROUGH OUR LIVES, WHETHER IN DISAPPOINTMENTS, OR LOSSES, OR PAIN, OR SUFFERINGS, OR ANYTHING ELSE THAT MIGHT HINDER OUR FAITH IN GOD, YAH'WEH.


ROMANS 8: 35 AND 37-39 =

(35) = WHO, (OR WHAT), SHALL SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF CHRIST? SHALL TRIBULATION, OR DISTRESS, OR PERSECUTION, OR FAMINE, OR NAKEDNESS, OR PERIL, OR SWORD?

(37) NO, IN ALL THESE THINGS, WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERS THROUGH HIM THAT LOVED US.

(38) FOR I AM PERSUADED, THAT NEITHER DEATH, NOR LIFE, NOR ANGELS, NOR PRINCIPALITIES, NOR POWERS, NOR THINGS PRESENT, NOR THINGS TO COME,

(39) NOR HEIGHT, NOR DEPTH, NOR ANY OTHER CREATURE, SHALL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD, WHICH IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.
