Is your affliction without reason ?

Repent if you are afflicted

Job 8:2
How long will you say these things, and how long will the words of your mouth be like a strong wind?

Job 8:3
Does God give wrong decisions? or is the Ruler of all not upright in his judging?


is your affliction without reason is

your affliction without is there no

reason for your affliction none

whatsoever the friend of Joab said to

him repent if you are if you are

afflicted repent

Bildad his friend said to him repent and

normally men are afflicted because they

have done something or let me put it

this way it happens that men are

afflicted because they have done

something but the chapter

job shows us that there are other

reasons just like a Lord said this man

was not crippled or paraplegic from

birth because of the sins of his parents

or his own sins but to show the glory of

God in John’s case it was to show the

devil the glory of God and the faith

which is what we’ve been talking about

the faith of his servants the fate

remember that faith the substance of

things hoped for and the sign that the

things not seen are true but Bildad just

like his other friend came to job and

said repent job 8 verse 2 job 8 verse 2

how long will you say these things and

how long will the words of your mouth be

like a strong wind does God give wrong

decisions or is the ruler of all not

upright in his judging if your children

have done evil against him then their

punishment is from his hand remember all

the jobs children died but you

just like abraham believed that god

could raise the dead all who know God

know that he can raise their dead for

that reason Abraham Abraham was willing

to sacrifice his own son if God says to

put him up as an offering then God will

bring him back to life the knowledge of

Christ is in the man who truly know God

for Christ as son of God was sacrificed

and brought back to life yet bill Dodd

yet bill Dodd said what he said out of

his lack of knowledge many people have

said to me that yes the children of job

did something here and there but reading

the book of Job it is clear that a

reason the reason for his misfortune his

affliction was God showing the enemy the

faith that is in dough for the enemy had

said a job was just haha a false

question a hypocrite and said he is

worshiping you because you give him

things

let him be afflicted and you will see

that his faith comes through nothing

that is what Jew the book of Job is

about how strong is your faith that

substance fate a spiritual thing that

substance of things hoped for the sign

that the things not seen are true but as

men go when they see any form of

affliction they think immediately that

something’s wrong they see with worldly

eyes God never gives wrong decision but

to whom He has given that faith and that

grace that one is able to stand in the

gap where the others are not able that

one is able and continues to testify

about our Lord God’s decisions are

always right but maybe our

interpretation of them are not always

right blessed be your Lord for his right

decisions blessed be the ruler of all

for his judging blessed be your Lord in

Jesus mighty name amen in

yuning was the word and the Word was

with God and the Word was God and at

word is in the beginning was the word

and a word the power of God in the

beginning was the word and at Word in

his his name is Jesus Lord of glory

Jesus came over Kings his name is Jesus

the light of the world Jesus the bread

of life his name is Jesus word of God

Jesus God with us so lord give us your

word speak with your voice speaking to

the hearts of those who are under the

power of your voice in Jesus mighty name

amen blessed be your Lord blessed be

your Lord job 8 verse 1 job 8 first one

then bildad the shuhite made answer and

said how long will you say these things

and how long will the words of your

mouth be like a strong wind does God

give wrong decisions or is the ruler of

all not upright in his judging if your

children have done evil against him then

their punishment is from his hand

if you will make search for God with

care and put your request before the

ruler of all if you are clean and

upright then he will certainly be moved

to take up your cause and will make

clear your righteousness by building up

your house again that verse is true but

the children of Job are innocent

scripture does not reveal that they have

done anything wrong

contrary to the word of men for reading

the book of Job we know that his

affliction was only to show the glory of

God the faith the faith that was in job

for it was because the enemy said to God

if you take away all the things that you

have given him all your blessing he will

curse you he will turn away from you and

God says no that’s not the faith that is

in June job has true faith job has

through faith and even though the first

part of bildad’s saying answer to job is

wrong that he should repent because he

was being afflicted by God verse 6 is

true if you are clean and upright then

he will certainly be moved to take up

your cause and will make clear your

righteousness by building up your house

again as Christ said this man has not

been a paraplegic for since his birth

for forty years because of the sins of

his fathers or his own sin

but to show the glory of God that God

can bring life to dead bones to dry

bones blessed be your Lord job 8 verse 7

and though your start was small your end

will be very great put the question now

to the past generations and give

attention to what has been searched out

by our fathers for we are but of

yesterday and have no knowledge because

our days on earth are gone like a shade

will they not give you teaching and say

words of wisdom to you will the river

plant come up in its pride without wet

earth will the grass get tall without

water when it is still green without

being cut down it becomes dry and dead

before any other plant so is the end of

all who do not keep God in mind and the

hope of the evildoer comes to nothing

whose support is cut off and whose hope

is no stronger than a spider’s is

strength he is looking to his family his

worldly family for support but it is not

there he puts his hope in it but it

comes to nothing he is full of strength

before the Sun and his branches go out

over his garden his roots are twisted

round the stones forcing their way in

between them

if he is taken away from his place then

it will say I have not seen you such is

the joy of his way and out of the dust

‘another comes up to take his place

cruelly God will not give up him who is

without sin and will not take evildoers

by the hand the time will come when your

mouth will be full of laughing and cries

of joy will come from your lips your

haters will be clothed with shame and a

tenth of the sinner will not be seen

again I pray I pray that whatever or

however your affliction may have come

about that God Almighty may restore you

restore you to a better place than where

you were before you were afflicted I

pray that in the time of your affliction

you take the time to find God to find

the Lord to know Jesus to open up your

heart and let him who stands at the door

and gives the sign into your heart into

your soul so that you may have his

spirit with that new heart of flesh and

that renewed mind overflowing with

living waters blessed be your Lord

blessed be your Lord in Jesus mighty

name amen let’s do that prayer Lord

forgive me forgive me for all the things

have done forgive me come and be with me

I open up myself to you Lord to you who

are lord over all come and be with me

come and be in me if there is something

to clean clean it out if there’s

something to trow out throw it out Lord

by your word Lord by your word let me be

cleansed let me be healed

let me have a clean heart clean your

house Lord

I am your house Lord be with me be in me

be over me cover me Lord at all times

cover me guide me teach me prepare me

strengthen me Lord and shine through me

Lord in Jesus mighty name amen blessed

affliction be by my own foolishness or

by you showing your glory Lord in the

end restore me to a place next to you
