[The Church of Almighty God] Job’s Rationality

 Job’s practical experience and his upright and honest humanity caused him to make the most rational judgment and choice when he lost his possessions and his sons and daughters. Such rational choice of his had to do with his pursuit and his knowledge of God’s deeds in his daily life. Job’s honesty enabled him to believe that all things are ruled over by Jehovah’s hand; his belief made him know the fact that Jehovah God rules over all things; his knowledge made him willing and able to obey the sovereignty and arrangement of Jehovah God; his obedience made him fear Jehovah God more and more genuinely; his fear made him shun evil more and more practically; finally, Job became perfect because of fearing God and shunning evil; his perfectness made him wise and also made him the most rational man.

[The Church of Almighty God] Job’s True Self: Trueness, Simplicity, and Non-hypocrisy

[Almighty God][Eastern Lightning][The Church of Almighty God] Let’s see Job 2:7-8: So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot to his crown. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself with; and he sat down among the ashes. This is a description about how Job behaved after he was stricken with sore boils. At that time, Job sat down among the ashes, and endured the physical pain, with no one to heal him or help him relieve his physical pain, and he himself scraped the surface of sore boils with a potsherd.

[The Church of Almighty God] Job Was Clear About What to Love and What to Hate

[Almighty God][Eastern Lightning][The Church of Almighty God] In the conversation between Job and his wife, another aspect of his humanity was shown to everyone: Then said his wife to him, Do you still retain your integrity? Curse God, and die. But he said to her, You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? (Job 2:9-10) Job’s wife saw that Job suffered so much, so she tried to persuade him, so as to help him out of the suffering. Continue reading

约伯试炼后的献祭——仰视2 During God’s long working period of supplying and sustaining men, he tells men all his will and his requirements, and also reveals to men his deeds, his disposition, and what he has and is. And his purpose is to equip men with a stature and let them gain the truths in every aspect during the period of their following him. These truths are the sharp weapon God gives to men with which they war against satan. Equipped with these, they will be faced with God’s test. God tests man through many kinds of means and ways.

[The Church of Almighty God] Job Heard of God by the Hearing of Ear


(Job 9:11) “See, he goes by me, and I see him not: he passes on also, but I perceive him not.”

(Job 23:8-9) “Behold, I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him: On the left hand, where he does work, but I cannot behold him: he hides himself on the right hand, that I cannot see him.”

(Job 42:2-6) “I know that you can do every thing, and that no thought can be withheld from you. Who is he that hides counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. Hear, I beseech you, and I will speak: I will demand of you, and declare you to me. I have heard of you by the hearing of the ear: but now my eye sees you. Why I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.”

[The Church of Almighty God] Job Extolled God’s Name, Regardless of Blessings or Disasters

 Here is a fact never mentioned in Job’s story recorded in the Bible, and this is the main point we will talk about today. Although Job did not see God or hear God’s word with his own ears, he had a place for God in his heart. What was his attitude toward God? It was that “blessed be the name of the LORD,” as spoken of above. This “blessed” was without condition, background, or any cause. Here, we see that Job gave his heart to God and let God control it, that what he thought, decided, and planned in his heart was open to God, not closed, and his heart was not against God, Continue reading
