We are coming towards the end of the Book of Job and there are some clues in this chapter that reveal what is at the core of the message and theology of the whole book. Today, we read the whole chapter, though the second part of Job 40 seems to be a completely different subject, and should be the first part of a section from Job 40:15-24 and  Job 41:1-34. So we’ll hopefully cover them both next time. At any rate, Job has come to the place where he feels he can say nothing or......

It is one thing simply accepting the fact that a man called Jesus of Nazareth lived 2000 years ago and died by crucifixion by the hands of the Romans. But once you start adding to that some other bits of information, such as the reason why He died, and who He said He was, and what He is supposed to have done, you have entered then into another zone: Theology. When Paul wrote 1 Cor.15:1-8, he wasn’t just giving us a snapshot of a person living 2000 years ago who was known for......

We took a couple of weeks break from Job as it was Palm Sunday and Easter is next week. In this message from Matt.21:1-22 we looked at the events leading up to and the events that took place when Jesus went up to Jerusalem for the final week leading to His Passion. These events include: His Triumphant Entry (Matt.21:1-11). His Cleansing of The Temple (Matt.21:12-17). His Cursing of The Fig Tree (Matt.21:18-22). Let us not think for one moment that Jesus did not know what would befall Him as He “entered the lion’s den”,......

Into the wild we go! Now don’t you think it would be good to know something about how wild animals know what to do? You’d think Job was on “The Chase” or “Mastermind” or “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire”, with the kinds of questions that the LORD is asking him. The point seems to be that each animal, whether the wild mountain goats or deer, the wild donkeys or ostrich, or the wild ox , or the horse in battle, or the birds of prey, they all have something in-build or......

Finally after all this time, God Himself speaks to Job. What will God say? Will He answer Job’s questions? Well in fact the LORD said that Job spoke in a manner that didn’t take into consideration His divine council (See Job 38:2 NASB and Berean). The LORD had Job to lift up his eyes to the heavens and consider how God organises His creation in the areas of Geology, Geography, Cosmology, Meteorology, and every other find of “-ology”, before coming down to earth to talk about animal life, and God’s care of each and every......

In this chapter Elihu finally wraps up his argument and prepares the way for the LORD Himself to come and speak. However before that, Elihu does make some very interesting comments about the weather (vv.1-13). We may wonder if the weather has a mind of its own, or if things happen just by chance. Well in this chapter we are told that God actually controls it and may use all different types of weather to fulfil His purposes. See especially v.12. I wonder how many would agree with the statement made by R.C.......

In this chapter Elihu speaks ‘a little more’ words that he believes come straight from God. He seems to be quite full of himself, and may even be referring to himself when he says, “One who is perfect in knowledge is with you” (v.4). In this chapter Elihu describes God’s dealings with the wicked and the righteous, and their different responses to those dealings. God wants the wicked to turn from their wicked ways, and He wants the righteous to find out why He allowed them to go through tough times. The......

Another speech from Elihu, but this time he seems to be contradicting himself on what he had said previously. Is God untouched by human sin? Does right living affect God? Is God Transcendant or Immanent, or is He both? Find out in this short 16 verse chapter, with a few extra supporting scriptures thrown in to back them up.

Elihu makes several points in this “sermon”, but mostly focuses on the Justice of God. It is absolutely true that God Alone Is Good, and that God is the Ultimate Judge and shows perfect justice to all who will come under His Judgement. But whilst focusing on the Justice of God, Elihu has missed something, and there are some things about the ways of God’s dealing that we don’t understand. In this “sermon” it sounds like Elihu is constantly seeking the approval of all who are within earshot of his words, hoping......
