“Adonai your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst—from your brothers. To him you must listen.  Deuteronomy 18:15

Job 12

Yes Job, God did allow it but the devil did it and God will heal you because He is our Healing.  Believe me, I have struggled even with the God allows it part, BUT GOD!  He always knows the beginning from the end and His Word ALWAYS happens just as He says it does, allotting Him ALL of the glory which He so deserves to have! Even writing this seems silly - He is Almighty God!

When I think about Job I think that he had unresolved fear and the reason I think this is because of the sacrifices he made for his adult children in case they sinned.  This is certainly not theological knowledge, just an opinion!  I think this because He knew His God intimately but not in this one area.  It is the devil who kills, steals, and destroys.  It is God who gives life in FULL measure!  Jobeeven said:

 

For the thing I dreaded has come upon me, and what I feared has happened to me.  Job 3:25

Nahum 1-2

It is said, “Crime doesn’t pay”.  The biggest crime is not loving God and also the saddest for those who choose the world over Him.  He is so wonderful and His want is always for our blessing and never for us to receive His just due wrath.  How prideful to stand against the Creator as a sinner and treat Him as nothing and then expect good things to come.  Lord, the harvest is so huge and I beseech You, Lord of the harvest, to send us forth.  It is not nor ever has been Your will that any perish and never know You (2 Peter 3:9).

“I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for apart from Me, you can do nothing. In this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be My disciples.”  John 15:5-8

Job 11

What comes to mind as I read this chapter is:

Romans 3 21 But now God’s righteousness apart from the Torah has been revealed, to which the Torah and the Prophets bear witness — 22 namely, the righteousness of God through putting trust in Messiah Yeshua, to all who keep on trusting. For there is no distinction, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.

And, Romans 6:23  For sin’s payment is death, but God’s gracious gift is eternal life in Messiah Yeshua our Lord.

I know the Lord Yeshua had not yet come to earth yet Job believed God and it was reckoned unto Him as righteousness like Abraham regardless of what Zophar thought about Job.  To me, Job’s “friends” were very self-righteous and this is pride and not humility just because they did not have the same experience.  They were very condemning and it is the devil who is the accuser of the brethren, so called by God Himself.  God is merciful and forgiving.  So Zophar, are you acting like a donkey?

Micah 7

7But I—I will watch for Adonai.
I will wait for the God of my salvation.
My God will hear me.
Do not rejoice over me, O my enemy.
Though I have fallen—I will arise.
Though I sit in darkness, Adonai is my light.
I will bear the indignation of Adonai,
because I have sinned against Him,
until He pleads my cause,
    and executes judgment for me.
He will bring me out to the light,
and I will behold His righteousness.
10 Then my enemy will see it,
and shame will cover her—
    she who said to me:
    “Where is Adonai, your God?”
My eyes will gaze at her—
now she will be trampled
    like mud in streets.

18 Who is a God like You
pardoning iniquity, overlooking transgression,
    for the remnant of His heritage?
He will not retain His anger forever,
    because He delights in mercy.
19 He will again have compassion on us.
He will subdue our iniquities,
and You will cast all our sins into the depths of the sea.
20 You will extend truth to Jacob,
mercy to Abraham,
that You swore to our ancestors
    from the days of old.

Yep, this covers it!  Of course the Word always does but when it is so clear to what I am receiving, why should I even try to write any interpretation?  Oh, I love You, my God!

My heart has been heavy with praying for the persecuted Believers in the world.  We have no idea how horrible it is for many Believers in nations that don't allow for their faith.

See you this evening at our house for pizza and a movie single adults!

Yeshua said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life! No one comes to the Father except through Me.  John 14:6

Job 10

Errors by Job: God was not contending with him and God never smiles on the wicked.  God does not search out our sin when we are His.  He remembers it no more.  Yet, when a person is going through excruciating pain, these erroneous thoughts can begin to work against the mind.  My mind Lord, must be stayed on You at all times!

Micah 6

I must always “acknowledge the righteous acts of ADONAI” for they are beyond many!

He has told you, humanity, what is good,
and what Adonai is seeking from you:
Only to practice justice, to love mercy
    and to walk humbly with your God.

There was a shooting at Aztec High School in New Mexico which is one town over from my son Jason and his family live.  Three are dead, the shooter and two other students and others injured.  Please keep those injured, the students who experienced the trauma, the families and friends in prayer.  This was a horrible demonic attack.

On a happier note, happy 11th birthday to my grandson Jared!  Today was also my grandmother's and brother's birthday as well as Pearl Harbor day which brought the US into WW II.  Thank You Lord that we had the victory and my grandparents on both sides emigrated from Russia right before WW I, because of the horrible persecution of the Jews going on in Russia!  Thank you Lord for saving my life to be used for Your Kingdom business!  Thank You Lord for my Aunt Helen who met You and got Born Again and prayed me into Your Kingdom.  Let my prayers for others have the same effect as it has had on me.  I love You so much Lord Yeshua!  You protected me long before I was even born.  What an awesome God of love You are!

Yeshua said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life! Whoever believes in Me, even if he dies, shall live.  John 11:25 

Job 9

Job’s one error and a big one at that, was that he didn’t know that it was satan who attacked him.  Yes, God had to allow it but God knows the end of all things from their beginnings.  Job, in my perception still remained humble in knowing that no one or in fact anything at all can stand up against God and have victory.  How can a created thing stand up and be correct against its creator? 

Many theologians have thought that this book was actually the first penned.  It is complex in a sense yet straightforward in another.  The bottom line is that through all things I must trust my God in EVERYTHING whether I understand or not.

Micah 5

This prophecy all points to our Lord Yeshua and His return and rule.  You are my shalom, oh Lord!  Your remnant has been in many nations but You are bringing her home in preparation of Your return.  Beware nations who do not listen to our God!

“I am the Good Shepherd. I know My own and My own know Me, just as the Father knows Me and I know the Father. And I lay down My life for the sheep.  John 10:14-15

Job 8

Once again assumptions and judgments cause wrong interpretations.  He gives his explanation to Job from a legalistic perspective and not one of God’s loving kindness, mercy and grace.  Yet the prophetic does come in blessing Job:


21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter
    and your lips with shouts of joy.
22 Those who hate you will be clothed with shame.
The tent of the wicked will be no more!”

Micah 3-4

3 It was expected that the leaders of Israel would know justice because they were given the Law which shows the very justice of God.  I have something so much greater for it is written on my heart, and the very Spirit of my Lord indwells me and I have the Scriptures beginning to end.  Therefore, I should know and live God’s way of justice.  ADONAI cannot participate in anything evil so the evil should not expect rescue without true remorse and repentance. 

Lord, keep me from speaking anything that is not from You!  The Holy Spirit in me wants to tell how to live the Good News and how to keep away from evil. 

4 BUT GOD!  Then many nations will go and say:


“Come, let us go up to the mountain of Adonai,
    to the House of the God of Jacob!
Then He will direct us in His ways,
    and we will walk in His paths.”
For Torah will go forth from Zion,
and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem.

I “will walk in the Name of ADONAI Eloheinu, forever and ever.”

My King Yeshua abides in me with His counsel.

Rising up against Israel is like striking God, Himself, the Judge of Israel on the cheek!  Watch out nations who want to destroy Israel and her people!
