TELL THEM "YOU DO NOT KNOW!"(4)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*TELL THEM "YOU DO NOT KNOW!" (4)*
Job 40: 1-2 *Moreover, the Lord answered Job and said,*
*Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Children of men are made of no worth, and they find themselves totally insignificant and foolish when or if God ever responds to their search of His preeminence.
Job, a just man, soon found out how vile
and very insignificant he was when He heard God's supreme questions by way of His answers to his search for God.
He began by asking if only he could know where God was, Job 23:3.
Then he concluded he had gone to the east and west, but he could not find God, Job 23:8.
He became so dumb regretting he ever inquired of God this way, Job 40:1-5.
So, from Gen 11:1-9 and in the book of Job, we see that finding God's preeminence, whereabout did not start today.
Though Job never queried the preeminence or preexistence of God because he believed and feared God, Job 1:1, however, some of his questions and the answers God gave him were suggestive of *"...touching the Almighty..."*, finding Him out.
God's answers to him serve as a rebuke to any unnecessarily inquisitive person.
Job put his hands on his mouth, asking why he should yet ever plead again.
Job had been rebuked even while reproving the Lord.
At least, he humbled himself before the Lord, and God finally endorsed him again.
Everyone must refrain from speaking unnecessarily and cover their mouth when it comes to intruding on God's power of preeminence or preexistence.
Though we are tempted to ask this question of where God was before creation but we must quickly rebuke it.
To persist in these thoughts is one of the ways the devil uses against our faith.
You do not know who pilots the plane you fly, yet you fly, you even sleep during the flight.
You do not see the brain you have in your skull, yet you believe there is a brain that controls your thinking faculty.
You do not have to know everything, especially and most importantly when it comes to *"....touching the Almighty...."*, Job 37:23.
To do so is foolishly exalting ourselves.
It is rebellious.
Job, by covering his mouth, did exactly what the same person who would commit evil did
Prov 30:32 *If you have foolishly exalted yourself or if you have plotted evil, put your hand over your mouth.*
Job survived this epilogue with God, but not many people do.
God will not rebuke or judge you for such thoughts, but He could deal with you when you pursue such thoughts through searches.
Is anyone asking you where God was before creation or who created God?
Please tell them you do not know!
Such knowledge is beyond you.
God was not created, Jesus was not created
Tell them to just believe!
Are you investigating God?
Job says *,"....proceed no further..."*
*Call to Word action.*
Job 40:3-5 *Then Job answered the Lord and said,*
*Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.*
*Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Anytime the thought of where God was before creation comes to mind, be quick to rebuke it.
Lord, help me to limit myself to your word and revelation of Yourself to me, in Jesus name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
