Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #Now when Job's three friends heard of all this evil that was come upon him, they came every one from his own place; Eliphaz the Temanite and Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite: for they had made an appointment together to come to mourn with him and to comfort him. So they sat down with him upon the ground seven days and seven nights and none spake a word unto him: for they saw that his grief was very great. Job 2:10-13

    The Bible says that faithful are the wounds of a friend, but deceitful are the kisses of an enemy. These three friends of Job started out doing the right things for him as they mourned with him seven days and seven nights. This was noble for when we a silent and present our comfort is great and that is what these friends did. They were very faithful to come to Job at his greatest time of need, after having lost his children, wealth, and now health he needed comforting. If only they had just left after the seven days, then that would have been great, but their comfort would lead them to make some serious allegations against Job. These would prove to be deceitful kisses, that Job would learn to forgive.

  • #So went Satan forth from the presence of the LORD and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown. And he took him a potsherd to scrape himself withal and he sat down among the ashes. Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God and die. But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. Job 2:7-10

     Satan designed just the trial to get Job to suffer, with boils from the sole of his feet to the crown of his head. So you wonder why he did not take his wife? Satan wanted her to be an obstacle for Job, as she questions Job do you still maintain thine integrity? Then Job says thou speaks as one of those foolish women does. Shall we not accept good from the hand of Jehovah and adversity also? In all this Job did not sin with his lips. God said Job was a perfect man, and he was so he demonstrated his maturity by accepting the adversity as coming from the Lord when we knew it was the devil that hath gained permission to strike his flesh. What a man of God Job was, for he did what no other man would do by not blaming God for his trouble. We can learn a lot from this example for we too are tempted to complain and blame God for our trouble in this world. Jesus said in the world we will have tribulation, but be of good cheer for I have overcome the world.

  • #And the word of the LORD came unto Jonah the second time, saying, Arise, go unto Nineveh, that great city and preach unto it the preaching that I bid thee. So Jonah arose and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceeding great city of three days' journey. And Jonah began to enter into the city in a day's journey and he cried and said, Yet forty days and Nineveh shall be overthrown. So the people of Nineveh believed God and proclaimed a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them even to the least of them. For word came unto the king of Nineveh and he arose from his throne and laid his robe from him and covered him with sackcloth and sat in ashes. And he caused it to be proclaimed and published through Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles, saying, Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything: let them not feed, nor drink water: Jonah 3:1-7

    The people of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah and one greater than Jonah said if I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me. Jesus was lifted up from the Cross, he bleeds and water comes out, He cried out it is finished, gave up the ghost. He was buried and three days later He rose again. He is seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven interceding for you and for me. Turn to Jesus now. The epidemiologist is saying we need to wash our hands and Jesus is saying we need to wash our hearts in His blood, be baptized in the water and we will be saved from the wrath to come. What a blessing for what can wash away my sins? Nothing but the Blood of Jesus. Salvation is a free gift, but you have to receive it to be saved. Just as the Ninevites believed God and turned from their evil ways. A hundred and twenty thousand souls were saved. We need a worldwide revival to save us from this pandemic that is sweeping across the world. Turn to Jesus and we shall be saved from this affliction. Call a fast every one; David said I thought on my ways and turned my feet unto thy statutes.

     

  • #Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD. And the LORD said unto Satan, from whence comes thou? And Satan answered the LORD and said, From going to and fro in the earth and from walking up and down in it. And the LORD said unto Satan, hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and upright man, one that fears God, and escheweth evil? and still, he holds fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him to destroy him without cause. And Satan answered the LORD and said skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life. But put forth thine hand now and touch his bone and his flesh and he will curse thee to thy face. And the LORD said unto Satan, behold, he is in thine hand, but save his life. Job 2:1-6

    Satan is at it again accusing Job, as Jehovah compliments Job for holding fast to his integrity. God listens as Satan says skin for skin, yea all that a man hath will he give for his life. But put forth thine hand now and touch his bone and his flesh and he will curse thee to thy face. So Jehovah God said behold he is in thine hand but save his life. We see there are limits for Satan to attack us, as God said to save his life and Satan is limited to pain and suffering. All the suffering in this world is caused by Satan, but God gives us the grace to bear it. Many people are suffering from the coronavirus and losing their lives, but there is the promise to the child of God that if this body that we live in is dissolved, we have a house from God not built with hands dwelling for us in the heavens awaiting us. So we are absent from the body but present with the Lord which is far more glorious. Thank God that suffering will not last forever, for Satan will be cast into the Lake of Fire, where he will be tormented forever, and God will create a new heaven and earth that we can enjoy in our glorified bodies forever. So hold on to your integrity as Job did and said all the days of my appointed time I am going to wait until my change comes.

  • #And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: And there came a messenger unto Job and said the oxen were plowing and the asses feeding beside them: And the Sabeans fell upon them and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another and said, the fire of God is fallen from heaven and hath burned up the sheep and the servants and consumed them and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another and said the Chaldeans made out three bands and fell upon the camels and have carried them away, yea and slain the servants with the edge of the sword and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. While he was yet speaking, there came also another and said, thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house: And behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness and smote the four corners of the house and it fell upon the young men and they are dead and I only am escaped alone to tell thee. Then Job arose and rent his mantle and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground and worshipped, and said Naked came I out of my mother's womb and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD. In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly. Job 1:13-22

    Job has been hit with a massive Satanic attack and lost all of his wealth and his children. He has torn his clothes off, shaved his head, then fell to the ground to worship God. He proclaims Naked came I from my mother's womb and naked shall I return there: Jehovah gave and Jehovah hath taken away; blessed be the name of Jehovah. In all this Job did not sin, nor did he charge God foolishly. We can learn a lot from this response of Job to adversity and do the same as we suffer through the worse crash of the stock market since the financial crisis of 2008. God must be praised for protecting us in this crisis and we pray for all our neighbors who are suffering, as well as losing jobs to the coronavirus spreading around the whole world. We will make it through this crisis by the grace of God. Be considered of older Americans who are isolating in nursing homes and do not violate the Government orders to not gather in more than groups of 10.

  • #Hast, not thou made a hedge about him and about his house and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands and his substance is increased in the land. But put forth thine hand now and touch all that he hath and he will curse thee to thy face. And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD. Job 1:10-12

    What do we do when we are on cloud nine and have all the blessings in the world of family, faith, and riches? We thank God for all these things for they can be taken away from us in a moment. Job is about to experience it, but the one thing he will hold on to is his faith in God. Jesus told Peter that Satan had demanded permission to sift him like wheat, but I have prayed for thee that thy faith fails not, then when you are converted, strengthen your brethren. God has to remove the hedge around us for Satan to get at us. Satan has power, but he is not omnipotent as God is. So we thank God for protecting us in the fiery trials of life and know that he only wants to refine us as gold is refined in the fire. Only the dross of our lives is removed and we come out more perfect than we were before the trial. Many people are in the trial of their lives and we must take the same attitude that Job took by saying God knows the way that I shall take, then when I am finished I shall be as pure gold.

  • #Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD and Satan came also among them. And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD and said, From going to and fro in the earth and walking up and down in it. And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and upright man, one that feareth God and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the LORD and said, Doth Job fear God for naught? Job 1:6-9

    Job is not aware of the conversation that God has with Satan, as the sons of God came to present themselves before Yahweh and Satan came also among them. So the Lord said unto to Satan, whence comest thou? God knows all things cause he is omniscient. Satan answered from going to and fro walking up and down in the earth, cause he cannot be everywhere at the same time as God cause he is omnipresent. So God has to remind Satan about Job, a perfect and upright man who fears God and avoids evil. It is said that Satan must have Alzheimer's disease, as he is forgetful. Yet Satan accuses Job by saying does Job fear God for naught? Rev. 12 tells us that Satan is the accuser, of the brethren and he accuses us before God night and day. God knows that Satan is lying about Job, but he knows the way the Job will go. Every test that comes to us is common to man and God is faithful who does not allow us to be tested more than we can bear, but with the test, it provides a way of escape so that we can bear it.

  • #And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them and rose up early in the morning and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, it may be that my sons have sinned and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually. Job 1:5

    Job, was such a godly man that he interceded for his children early in the morning, as he thought his sons had cursed God in their hearts. This is something that all fathers should do for their children. With many families being absentee fathers is taking a toll on families today and it is hard to find a job at such a time as this. May we see a great move of God in these last days before the tribulation starts. There will be an outpouring of the Spirit of God in these last days drawing the hearts of their fathers to their children. We have to hold them in our hearts as we intercede to God for their well being in this turbulent economy and coronavirus.

  • #There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job and that man was perfect and upright and one that feared God and eschewed evil. And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters. His substance also was seven thousand sheep and three thousand camels and five hundred yokes of oxen and five hundred she asses and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and drink with them. Job 1:1-4

    The book of Job is a very pertinent book in the Bible as it tells us how to abound and be abased to the glory of God. Job is the subject of the book, but it is really meant for all of us to take heed to. As we can see he was the richest man in the East, in the land of Uz, and he was perfect, which means he was mature in spirit, upright and one that feared God and avoided evil. When we do those things we too will be blessed beyond measure and should be on the lookout to not trust in uncertain riches, for they can be taken away. We must thank God for our blessings and our losses as well.  So we will see how Job did this and we too must do it.

  • #Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace and the God of love and peace shall be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. All the saints salute you. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. II Cor. 13:11-14

    Paul exhorts the church to be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace and the God of love and peace shall be with you. Be at peace with all men and follow holiness. Then he gives the great doxology of the Church to greet one another with a holy kiss. With the coronavirus going around we can blow kisses at one another. Now the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and communion of the Holy Ghost be with you all as we wait on the coming of the Lord to take us to heaven to live with him forever. Amen.
