Job’s Sure Knowledge

September 10th, 1876
by
C. H. SPURGEON
(1834-1892)

“For I know that my Redeemer liveth,”—Job 19:25.

I daresay you know that there are a great many difficulties about the translation of this passage. It is a very complicated piece of Hebrew, partly, I suppose, owing to its great antiquity, being found in what is, probably, one of the oldest Books of the Bible. Besides that, different persons have tried to translate it according to their own varying views. The Jews stiffly fight against the notion of the Messiah and his resurrection being found in this verve, while many Christian commentators see here everything that we can find in the New Testament, and translate the passage as though Job were as well instructed in this matter as we are now that Christ “hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” Others say that, while there is, no doubt, a reference to the person and the resurrection of Christ, yet it is not so vivid as some seem to think.

Well, it’s about that time. The Christmas season is over and the ball has dropped to signify another year has begun. Aside from the annual commercials selling every type of weight loss machine, drink, and diet plan imaginable, there is one more thing that should be happening right about now. This time of year should also bring the beginning of all of the “prophetic words” from the numerous “pastors” and “preachers” that talk about how this is the year for ________ (insert the new, popular word/term for financial prosperity here…). This is the year of blessing, wealth, prosperity, health, overflow, abundance, and/or fullness. This is the year when that peace/love/hope/power/healing/miracle/joy you’ve been waiting for is going to happen! If you will send these men and women your seed/offering/gift in faith and believe that what they are telling you is true, oops sorry, I mean believe in faith, then you will know greater power/glory/honor/fame/money/prestige/happiness/joy/love/peace/prosperity/your best life now. All that for your best “faith seed”! Seems like a pretty good deal doesn’t it?

If it wasn’t so heretical, it would actually be kind of fun. Like biblical Mad Libs… Continue Reading This is the year!…

Arm Yourself – Acceptance

I read a comment the other day that got me thinking about something that I’ve seen happening for a long time now. The person who made the comment was out West for an event and said that the people at the event had found “community there and online when they couldn’t find it anywhere else”.  While I don’t know that I could argue with that because I think that that happens any time you have a number of people getting together for a common purpose, it was the idea drawn from this that got me thinking. The person then said that the people stayed connected because they felt accepted, and that this is what Christians need to do. The basic premise is that Christians need to go out into the world and make others feel accepted. This is often promoted as “loving people like Jesus”, “living life with people”, or “getting our lives dirty”. Continue Reading Arm Yourself – Acceptance…

Design of the Week – Boog’s Corner – Who’s Side?

This week’s design is another one that my daughter came up with. It is a simple question but one that many people don’t seem to be able to answer honestly. The Bible says in Matthew 12:30 that you are either for God or against Him. If you do not obey Him then it doesn’t matter what you call yourself or how much you pretend, you are not His. If you are not His, then you belong to the devil. It’s that simple.

This may seem harsh, but it’s the truth. A lot of people talk the talk, but John says that it’s more than talk and it’s more than one day. It’s a lifetime. If you’re not giving your all to God on a daily basis, you may want to check and see if you are saved. Does this mean that you don’t sin. Nope. Does it mean that you’re always going to be up and energetic. Nope. What it means is that when you do sin, you immediately go to your Advocate, Jesus, and confess that sin. Then, you get back to doing what you should be doing. You don’t live in your sin, you don’t wallow in self-pity, and you don’t pout.

Sadly, many Christians today are all about feelings. It’s not about feelings at all. Being a Christian is about knowing and that comes from abiding in Him.
