et us turn to the Gospel of John to find the answer to this acute question: "Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth on me, though he die, yet shall he live."

Job wanted the resurrection and the life, and Christ is the answer to his need. Christ governs everything. Job came to see that there is life beyond, a life triumphant over death, and now he is at rest. In the forty-second chapter we find Job as a man who has come through the storms. His heart is at rest and his problems are solved: "Now mine eye seeth thee."

The Great Daysman

Then there is another point. Job's friends were accusing him of sin; Satan, through those friends, was acting as the accuser. In himself Job was not sure and he longed for assurance. On the other hand, it looked as if God had a controversy with him, as if something had gone wrong. His friends could not help him, and Job cried for a daysman to stand between the opposing sides, for such a man who could come in between to see that both sides had fair play and that all got their rights: a man who had no personal interests, neither on one side nor on the other.

We know our New Testament well enough to see that Jesus Christ has become that great Daysman. He is the great mediator. In 1 Timothy 2:5 we read: "For there is one God, one mediator also between God and men, himself man, Christ Jesus." Christ answers Job's need and is the One who will see that there is fair play on both sides.

We must remember that Satan was God's instrument and he was not doing this independently of God.

Yes. Satan is God's ugly tool. He was being used as a tool to accomplish the work of God which was to tear Job down and rebuild him with Himself. "Now my eye has seen you." To see God is to gain God. Instead of a good man, Job became a God-man.

   AMEN, vivla differance  :)   Objectively men seek GOD, or at the very least make their assessment of Him.  Objectively this may produce a great variance of how men walk in His presence.  Then, through the gospel our experience with GOD becomes subjective, and the natural man cannot understand(((John 14:19))).

Exactly brother. The Spirit makes the objective facts our subjective experience. God is not a doctrine, He is the true and living One. Eternal life is not to build your tent on your doctrinal viewpoint, it to know this One. Praise the Lord. I heard about Him with the hearing of the ear, now my eye has seen Him. Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!! O, how I love Jesus!!!!

John 17:3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Him whom You have sent, Jesus Christ.

John 14:23 Jesus answered and said to him, If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make an abode with him.
