THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things
are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are
pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good
report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things.
25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand
at the latter day upon the earth:
26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in
my flesh shall I see God:
Light from the Word.
From the depths of a languishing soul comes the cry of great faith,
and an amazing revelation!
Suffering immensely from the loss of family, self-esteem, and in the
midst of abrasive "friends," Job declares an undying faith!
Job contends that he KNOWS that his REDEEMER lives, and that
he KNOWS there will be a resurrection.
IN that resurrection he will stand before the LORD!
Even though sickness, disease and death have taken his body,
he shall stand and SEE God face to face!
Yes! My friends, one day we shall SEE the LORD our REDEEMER!
He will place "immortality" upon this "mortal" body, and we shall behold Him!
Our "corrupt" bodies shall be called from the graves, and we shall be
given "INcorruptable" bodies. (see 1Corinthians 15:51-57)
See how Job says that GOD is his REDEEMER! (vs 26)
He has no problem avowing that the Almighty Creator is also the Saviour!
Neither did Isaiah (See Is. 43:11).
Neither did Hosea (See Hos. 13:4).
Jesus said, "No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son,
which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him." (John 1:18)
Jesus is "in the bosom of the Father."
He is face to face, friend to friend, equal, yet part of.
And Jesus "declared" God!
He is God incarnate!
The visible image of the invisible God!
If you want to know about God, learn about Jesus!
