“As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth. Job 19:25
Job was suffering tremendously, he lost all his children, he lost all his possessions, and he lost his health. There was no reason for Job to ever glorify God or even acknowledge Gods existence. Jobs own wife told him to “Curse God and die” (Job 2:9) However Job did the opposite he declared “My Redeemer Lives”
Even though Job was being persecuted by Satan he knew it wasn’t Gods doing. In fact Job had faith that God would redeem him eventually. How many of us have this kind of faith when facing trials and suffering?
“Even after my skin is destroyed, Yet from my flesh I shall see God; Whom I myself shall behold, And whom my eyes will see and not another. My heart faints within me! Job 19:26-27
Job understood this life is temporary and he longed to see God one day! How many of us focus on the eternal things and not the temporary things of this world? This is the dangers of “Prosperity Gospel”, people falsely believe they will be “blessed” for accepting Christ, is not Biblical
Jesus taught us the opposite, you will face trials, you will face persecution, you might even face death because of your faith. However because we have Christ, we can declare like Job “Our Redeemer Lives” because Jesus overcame the grave, we too will inherit eternal life through Jesus Amen!
