INTRODUCTION

IN THESE PASSAGES OF SCRIPTURE ELIPHAS WAS NOT OF GREAT COMFORT TO JOB BECAUSE HE WAS MORE INTERESTED IN MAKING PREMATURE ASSUMPTIONS OF POSSIBLE AVENUES FOR JOB TO TAKE THAT JOB COULD POSESS THE BLESSINGS OF GOD WHO WAS AND IS IN THE BLESSING BUSINESS.

IN FACT, WHILE ELIPHAS WAS MASKING SUCH ASSUMPTIONS; JOB WAS TRULY IN THE CARE OF GOD AND COULD LEAN ON THE BOSOM OF GOD WHO WAS AND IS ABLE.

HE CAN CONQUER ALL

WE SHOULD BE REMINDED HERE THAT ELIPHAS TRIPUBLED JOB IN A VERY SENSITIVE PART OF HIS WALK, IN THAT HE MENTIONS BOTH THE LOSS OF HIS ESTATE AND THE LOSS OF HIS CHILDREN AS JUST PUNISHMENT FOR WHAT HE ASSUMED TO BE CAUSED BY SIN.

HE REMINDS HIM THAT NO AFFLICTION COMES BY CHANCE, NOR IS IT ATTRIBUTED TO SECOND CAUSES.

TROUBLE DOES NOT COME FORTH:

1) JUST AS THE DUST

2) SPRING OUT THE GROUND, AS THE GRASS DOES

3) COME AT CERTAIN SEASONS OF THE YEAR, AS NATURAL PRODUCTION.

4) COME AS NIGHT AND DAY - SUMMER OR WINTER

BUT ACCORDING TO THE WILL AND COUNSEL OF GOD, WHEN AND AS HE THINKS ITS FIT.

HE CAN CONQUER ALL

ELIPHAS REMINDS JOB THAT TROUBLE AND AFFLICTION ARE WHAT WE SHOULD EXPECT IN THIS WORLD.

IF ADAM WOULD HAVE KEPT HIS INNOCENCY WE WOULD HAVE BEEN BORN TO PLEASURE, BUT AS SINFUL MAN, AS BORN OF A WOMAN WHO WAS IN TRANSGRESSION.

MAN WAS BORN TO SIN AND THEREFORE BORN TO TROUBLE, EVEN THOSE WHO ARE BORN TO HONOUR AND RICHES ARE BORN TO TROUBLE.

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR ROYALTY IS.

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR FINANCIAL PORTFOLIO LOOKS LIKE

IN OUR NATURAL STATE IT HAS BECOME NATURAL FOR US TO SIN AND THE NATURAL CONSEQUENCE FOR THAT IS AFFLICTION

JOB 14:1 SAYS:

MAN BORN TO WOMAN IS OF A FEW DAYS, AND FULL OF TROUBLE

ROMANS 5:12 SAYS:

WHEREFORE, AS BY ONE MAN SIN ENTERED INTO THE WORLD,

AND DEATH BY SIN, AND SO DEATH PASSED UPON ALL MEN, FOR THAT ALL HAVE SINNED.

THERE IS NOTHING IN THIS WORLD THAT WE CAN TRULY CALL OUR OWN BUT SIN AND TROUBLE.

ISAIAH 48:8 SAYS:

YEA, THOU HEARDEST NOT, YEA THOU KNEWEST NOT, YEA FROM THAT TIME THAT THINE EAR WAS NOT OPENED: FOR I KNEW THAT THOU WOULDEST DEAL VERY TREACHEROUSLY, AND WAS CALLED A TRANGRESSOR FROM THE WOMB

HE CAN CONQUER ALL

ELIPHAS CONTINUES WITH JOB GIVING HIM INSTRUCTIONS, NOW ON HOW TO BEHAVE UNDER HIS AFFLICTION, CONTENDING WITH HIM FOR NOT SEEKING THE COUNSEL GOD, INSTEAD OF ARGUING WITH GOD.

I WOULD SEEK UNTO GOD SURELY I WOULD:

ELIPHAS, I BELIEVE IS SAYING TO JOB IF I WERE IN YOUR POSITION I WOULD NOT BE AS ARGUMENTIVE AS YOU ARE, I WOULD SEEK UNTO GOD.

WHAT WOULD YOU DO

PERHAPS YOU CAN GIVE BETTER ADVICE THAN YOU ARE ACTUALLY ABLE TO TAKE YOURSELF.

IT IS VERY COMMON THAT WE GIVE ADVICE THAT WE ARE NOT WILLING TO TAKE FOR OURSELVES.

IF I:

1) WERE IN YOUR SHOES

2) WERE IN YOUR POSITION

3)WERE TRIED AS YOU ARE TRIED

I WOULD DO THIS.....

WE MUST BY PRAYER CALL FOR MERCY AND GRACE FROM GOD, SEEK HIM AS A FATHER AND FRIEND, THOUGH HE CONTENDS WITH US, HE IS THE ONE WHO IS ABLE TO TAKE CARE OF OUR TROUBLES AND TRIALS; IN FACT, IT’S HIS COMFORT THAT WE MUST SEEK WHEN WE HAVE LOST ALL THAT WE HAVE HAD IN THIS WORLD.
