In the book of Esther, we see the faithfulness of God behind the scenes. It's been 65 years since the Babylonian captivity had ended.

That could be you today.Scriptures in orde…

The clouds reveal the glorious works of God who is wise and just be…
 
Elihu continued his address to Job and his friends as he exalted the sovereignty of God his Maker.

Synopsis: In this letter, we see Paul requests Timothy to stay in Ephesus to provide stability to the church.

Paul's instructions were appropriate then, ju…
 
Luke wrote his account of the life of Jesus Christ so that Theophilus would have ‘certainty of those things in which you were instructed’ (Luk 1:4).

After defending himself from the false accusations of his friends, Job rested his case.

Job responded to Eliphaz and then to Bildad, having weathered their false accusations and, contrary to their assumptions, demonstrated great knowledge of the almighty God.

Eliphaz prescribed repentance and returning to the LORD for Job, but Job never departed from the God he lost sight of.

Job wondered how long he would be tormented by friends who showed him no compassion or pity. Like a flour that springs up in ground burnt with fire, the faith of Job flashed forth to proclaim his Redeemer lived. The Redeemer Job alluded to is revealed in the person of Jesus Christ who redeemed lost sinners and gives abundant life to all who trust H…
 
The trial Job faced broke him, and he expressed a desire for God to vouch for him. Looking at his situation he was unable to see any hope, no light was visible on the horizon. Bildad's second address did nothing to encourage him. Bless the LORD He has sent the Light of the World Jesus to give us a living hope, a pledge of love we receive by faith.V…
 
Job 15:17-16:22.Synopsis: No matter how resourceful a person may be, life proves futile without a relationship with the living God.

In Job's suffering he desired to bring his case before God even if it killed him, for he believed God was his only hope of vindication.

Job complained of being weary of life and his friends and circumstances offered no relief. Zophar weighed with this first address of Job by wrongly criticising him, but then he rightly extolled the knowledge and power of God. There is hope for those weary of life in Jesus Christ who is our Life and gives rest for our souls in green pastures.…
 
In Job's first response to Bildad, he wondered how a man could possibly be justified before God who is all powerful, righteous and Judge of all.

Praise the LORD Jesus is the revelation of God to mankind, the Saviour who justifies sinners by the Gospel of grace.Verses i…
 
At his lowest point Job felt like there was no comfort or escape from his dire situation, and we do not need to experience all he did to feel hopeless. Bildad accused Job of maligning God's justice and questioned the sincerity of Job's repentance. Because God is merciful and powerful He chose to redeem sinners, and thus there remained hope for Job …
 
Eliphaz supposed Job was responsible for his own suffering, that he was reaping what he had sown. Though well-intentioned, his graceless words were rejected by Job as irrelevant for his case. The disappointment of Job in the ability of his friends to provide comfort he desperately sought is a reminder to all to look to Jesus who gives Living Water …
 
After sitting in silence for seven days with his friends, Job opened his mouth and cursed the day of his birth. He wished he had never been born and wondered why he suffered in anguish of soul.

After Satan took Job's wealth and children from him, God observed how Job held onto his integrity even when afflicted without cause. God allowed Satan to strike Job with incurable boils.

In this conclusion of the book, James exhorts believers to pray to God and praise Him, knowing the effective, fervent prayer of the righteous avails much.

James reminds the rich and poor alike the LORD is at hand. Knowing God will one day judge all men we are called to be patient and establish our hearts by faith in Him today.

James 3 shines a spotlight on the tongues of Christians, that an inconsistency can exist between those who profess to have faith in God coupled with mouths that reveal bitter envy, boasting and cursing.
