One day when the sons of God came to stand in front of The Lord, Satan the ‘Accuser’ came along with them.
The Lord asked Satan, “Where have you come from?”
Satan answered The Lord, “From wandering all over the Earth.”
The Lord asked Satan, “Have you thought about my servant Job? No one in the world is like him! He is a man of integrity: He is decent, he fears God, and he stays away from evil. And he still holds on to his principles. You’re trying to provoke me into ruining him for no reason.”
Satan answered The Lord, “Skin for skin! Certainly, a man will give everything he has for his life. But stretch out your hand, and strike his flesh and bones. I bet he’ll curse you to your face.”
The Lord told Satan, “He is in your power, but you must spare his life!” Job 2:1-6
The Word, was made flesh…
The start of this passage delineates a distinct time, as a time agreed and fixed upon between God and his Son from their Kingdom of eternity, in a council and covenant of peace. This reveals to us that there are progressive periods carefully calculated within God’s plan for us, divided into periods and which ultimately culminates in the life, death and the resurrection of Christ. The final culmination was divined by his disciples, as our Judgment Day. If Christ appeared before us back then, would you have recognized his grace, or would you have fallen in line with unbelievers unwilling to repent? When the time of Judgment arrives, will you have been ready? For when the fullness of time has come, and our days are ending, will you be amongst the saved? An often touted phrase is ‘live everyday is your last’, but perhaps, for the lambs of the Lord, it would be better to render It ‘live everyday as if the Judgment has arrived.
And we pray:
Lord, my time has come, Your light divine, has shone upon us brighter than any star. We have my Lord, accepted into our hearts Your Word made flesh through Your only begotten Son. When the time comes, let me be ready Lord, let my soul not be sullied, but have lain in wait, clothed with Your truth and Your blessing. Count me amongst Your followers on that day of our final reckoning. In all this for The Love of MIGHTY King Jesus I pray, Amen.
