The Angelic Conflict – Part 18 Outline

The Angelic Conflict – Part 18 –

The opportunity to glorify God in the angelic conflict comes quickly, when least expected, when the believer has reached a peak in his spiritual life, so it is totally undeserved suffering.

When passed by the mature believer, it results in a great phenomenon that occurs perhaps only once or twice in every generation: a doubling of escrow blessings, JOB 42:12!

Job 2 – Satan does not admit that he was wrong about Job.

Satan’s blind arrogance has led him to the conclusion that he not only knows better, but is better!

Satan is saying that if God would just take away his health that Job would collapse and fail.

There is no one who is more inconsistent in his thinking than the super-genius of all time, Satan!

In this second test, Satan was able to inflict upon Job loss of health, but he was not allowed the power to take his life!

Satan is the source of certain diseases, Job 2:6-8; MAT 12:22; LUK 13:16; ACT 10:38.

“present” = jatsab = to take one’s stand or to set oneself against another, to oppose.

“And he (Job) still holds fast his integrity although you (Satan) ignited Me against him to ruin him without cause”

This is evidence testing and suffering for blessing for no reason except the glorification of God – the main reason why we are here!

When a believer has the doctrine and has attained what Job has attained, that believer has what it takes to handle and pass the test!

Whenever there’s any physical pain, emotional pain, mental pain, and loss of health – Bible doctrine is the soul is far far greater!!

One of the greatest moments of spirituality in all of human history was when Job felt so bad, emotionally and physically.

Bible doctrine in your soul, metabolized doctrine, is far greater than any adversity of life!

You may not be able to handle this now, but when you can handle it you will have the experience!

Not only is Job in pain but he is also socially ostracized!

No woman can love a man unless she has something in her soul far greater than the mere superficialities of physical attraction toward him.

What brings out the best in Job brings out the worst in his wife!

Manhood is not muscle and macho, manhood is integrity! True love for a man should be based upon his integrity!

He is going to accept this as a gift from God just as he accepted all the prosperity!

JOB 42:10 “The Lord restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends, and the Lord increased all that Job had twofold.”
