The most powerful thing in all the Universe is Throne words Bible: Throne words.

REV 12:7-12, And there was war in heaven, Michael and his angels waging war with the dragon. And the dragon and his angels waged war, and they were not strong enough, and there was no longer a place found for them in heaven.

And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.

And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even to death. For this reason, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has {only} a short time.”

Satan, or the Devil, has been given a number of names or titles in Scripture:
1. Satan – (I’m a lawyer).
2. “The Bearer of light” translated into Latin is Lucifer.
3. The Devil.
4. The Tempter.
5. The Ruler of Demons.

  1. The Evil One.
    7. The Enemy.
    8. The Liar.
    9. The Father of Lies.
    10. The Murderer.

 

  1. The Ruler of the World.
    12. The God of this Age.
    13. The Angel of Light.
    14. The prince of the air.
    15. The Adversary.
  2. The Roaring Lion.
    17. The Dragon.
    18. The Old Serpent.
    19. The Deceiver – of the World.
    20. The Accuser of God’s People.The LORD doesn’t mind calling the devil names.

Now, before we go on with the doctrine that pertains to Throne Words or Words from the throne, I want to be sure of something. That you realize what the Bible teaches when it says that Satan and his fallen angels were cast out of Heaven for the last time forever.

Think about this now!!

Neither Satan or the fallen angels will ever be able to go to Heaven again nor will they ever experience anything like the Heaven that they had in eternity past when they were all worshipping God together in harmony…for a length of time.

How long did Satan and the fallen angels worship God. We don’t know!

We know something about what all the angels were doing according to JOB 38.

JOB 38:1-2, Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said, “Who is this that darkens counsel [or distorts my doctrine] by words without knowledge? 

One of the great sins, especially of the sophomore believer or the adolescent believer is the distortion of doctrine. And by distortion I mean using doctrine rather than having doctrine use you.

Now what does God mean when He says, “Who is this that darkens counsel by words or doctrines without knowledge?” HE means that Job has the doctrine but has made the wrong application.

Remember that you can perceive and metabolize doctrine and still refuse to apply it. I hope you are beginning to see something very interesting so far. That is that the different dispensations that I am using so that there will be objectivity rather than subjectivity.

So in verse 3, God announces His intention to interrogate Job.

JOB 38:3 “Now gird up your loins or we would say “get some guts” [and then notice three words] like a man,

One of the biggest difficulties with believers when they get into suffering is that they lose the manliness principle of being courageous. For believers in this Church-age,. This is a command for Job to face the facts so that he can get back in fellowship with God.

Prin – No believer can serve the Lord when he’s hand-strung by a guilt complex, or bitterness, or regrets regarding the past. And by the way, the very fact that God tells Job to “gird up his loins like a man” reveals that Job was acting like a baby relying on his morality rather than virtue. And to “be a man” you have to face the fact that you are responsible for your failures.

Always remember that in every generation, God is looking for men and women who will be men and women and who can stand in the gap and handle pressure.

In EZE 22:30, the Lord said: And I sought for a man that should make up the hedge and stand in the gap before Me for the land, that I should not destroy it, but I found none.

David’s words to his son Solomon just before he died were 1KI 2:2, Be strong therefore and show yourself a man.

A man is someone with strength!
A man is someone who can handle suffering!
A man doesn’t run away when faced with pressure!

This is when those without strength start whimpering and whining about everything that’s going on in their life.

Job must stop whimpering and whining about his suffering!

Prin – You can’t be a cry-baby about the past and serve the Lord in the present. Joab, David’s general said to his soldiers who were out-numbered and the odds were against them in 2SA 10:12, “be of good courage and let us play the men for our people” Unfortunately not too many were brave soldiers.

The apostle Paul said to the believers at Corinth concerning false doctrine and apostate teaching: 1CO 16:13, “Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong.”

Notice that a real man is someone who is on the alert, stands firm in doctrine and is strong. And to those doctrinal ladies of the Church-age, welcome to the Angelic Conflict.

So, in JOB 38:3, the Lord says “Now gird up your loins like a man, And I will question you, and you instruct [or answer] Me!

In verses 4-11, we have the first question: Was Job present at the creation of planet earth, and of course the answer to that is no, Job wasn’t there.
Nor were you or I. So, in verses 4-11, we have a beautiful description of creation.

The Lord says to Job in JOB 38:4, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding,”

Job, you seem to be a know-it-all questioning MY actions so you must have understanding…so let’s begin with the creation.

JOB 38:4-5, “Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding, (a little divine sarcasm) Who set its measurements, since you know [that’s what we call divine sarcasm]? Or who stretched the line on it? 

God is saying to Job “I know what I’m doing!” You didn’t do these things. You are a part of MY plan. You see Job had a plan that he was going to have prosperity for life and he thought he was all set for life, however, that was Job’s plan not God’s plan.

Job thought everything was going to be just perfect and everything was going to be just wonderful and pleasant for the rest of his life. Whereas God’s plan was to bring some adversity into his life whereby Job could glorify Him in the angelic conflict.

Now, I’m going to say something that is very serious and I don’t want you to misunderstand it. But “You do not have it made when you are spiritual”. Spirituality does not guarantee a life without problems and difficulties.

As the apostle Paul said in 2TI 3:12, And indeed, all who desire to live godly [eusebos-spiritual] in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.

Now, if man doesn’t know what God is doing it is simply because he doesn’t need to know or man is not oriented to God’s plan. We may not understand the adversities and the sufferings which come into our lives. However, in the end we will discover that God knew all along exactly what we needed and what was best for us! Remember what TLJC said to Peter in JOH 13:7, “What I do you do not realize now, but you shall understand hereafter.”

No one in the human race can ever really understand in depth the principle of omniscience and the fact that God knows all things and has everything under control.

As the apostle Paul said in ROM 11:33, Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!
