Job 19 & 20: My Redeemer Liveth

Verse of the Day: (19:25) For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

 1.   Reproach (19:1-24)
These ten times have ye reproached me: ye are not ashamed that ye make yourselves strange to me. (19:3)

Job vented his frustration at his friends, Eliphaz, Bildad and Zophar, as the last ten times they had repeatedly reproached him for committing secret sins. Though time and again he had patiently explained to them that he had not done any wickedness yet they would not believe him. They believed that God would not severely afflict His people unless they had rebelled against him, and therefore they believed that Job must have sinned against Him. Job’s faith was tested to the fullest as though he trusted God yet it seemed God was like his enemy tormenting him with his tragic loss and ill health. His life crumbled down as his wife treated him like a stranger, his friends falsely accused him, and everyone despised him. Indeed, let us only look to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and serve and please Him, as only He understand our reproach as He had also suffered reproach for us, and eventually gave His life at the cross but for the sins of the world. (Romans 15:1-3)  

2.   Redeemer (19:25-29)
And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God: (19:26)

God must have spoken to Job of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who shall one day come to this earth, and redeem man from the curse of the first sin of our first parents, Adam and Eve. (Genesis 3:1-21) By faith, Job believed that one day he would die, and worms would destroy his body, yet he knew that his soul would never die because God, his Redeemer, shall live forever. Indeed, Jesus came and died on the cross, and He was made a curse for us, and whoever believes in Him shall never die, but shall see his Redeemer, and live with Him in His eternal home in heaven forever. (Galatians 3:13-14) 

3.   Reveal (20:1-29)
The heaven shall reveal his iniquity; and the earth shall rise up against him. (20:27)

Zophar counselled Job to admit his sins, and insisted that God would never afflict His people if they had not committed any evil. He believed that Job must have oppressed the people in his pursuit of his wealth, and this was why God punished him by taking away his precious possessions and dearest children. He believed that God had finally revealed Job’s iniquity, and the only way out for him was to repent his sins. However, Zophar was wrong, as Job did not sin against God. Indeed, let us only heed God’s high calling, as only He shall reveal to us His perfect will in our service for Him. (Philippians 3:13-15)

Prayer of the Day:

Dearest God, thank You that I never die because Jesus, my Redeemer, lives forever.
