You can find a RSS feedlink on our website, www dot do bery baptist clarksbridgecom. got a phone call and someone from the Church said, pastor, I was outside last night and I was a admiring that beautiful bribe side. What you mean? You are outside last night admiring the beautiful bright side? I'm kid and I really didn't get that conversation or that phone call. But what if I had? If I had,...

I would probably say, you know what, let's schedule you for some counseling. What? Because you can't see that beautiful bright sun at night, but you might be able to see the sun at night with eyes of reason. No physicalize, but eyes of reason. You might be able to reason. You know what, the Sun hasn't moved. The Earth is rotating and thus the sun is still where it was earlier in the day. Our site has more to do with us moving then the sun coming up or down. In other words, through reason one could come to the conclusion that the sun is always visible if that which hinders our side is removed. Site is at times more clear when we see with something other than our physical eyes. So to...

...job would see the defeat of the one who had requested to torture job. He would see the defeat of the wicked one. With eyes of faith, are Reading For the Days Job Chapter Twenty five through twenty seven, and I want to focus especially on job twenty six, verse twelve B. Joe. Twenty five through twenty seven, job is interacting with one of his brands again. Bill, Dad and of course it's friends are arguing for a work salvation, and job is arguing, know, for salvation by faith, but he's struggling with how God could let this happen. Do it. But we find a very interesting verse in Job Twenty Six, verse Twelve B. by his wisdom, speaking of God, by his wisdom, he cut Rahab in pieces. This must cause cognitive consternation. What do you mean? Rayhab? God...

Cut Rahab in pieces. What is this referring? Is it referring to a people group? Is referring to a person? After some study into this verse, I would say no deler both. In fact, in the Hebrew the rayhab in this passage is pronounced Rahab. It'smell totally different from the Rahab in Joshua Chapter two, which is pronounced recab. So to what is this in reference to? What's job speaking of? In reading this passage, psalm eighty nine, verse ten and Isaiah Fifty One. Verse Nine, Rahab appears to be some sort of enemy of God which God destroys. And I they have fifty one. This Rahab, or rush Rahab, is equated with a dragon...

...and here it's equated with a fleeing serpent. Joke. Twenty six, verse thirteen, the very next verse. In songs and Isaiah, the references back to the exidents. So as you read Psalm Eighty nine and Isaiah fifty one, you see this Rahab, Rahab, which is like a dragon and appears to be in reference to Pharaoh. But such could not be the case here. This was hundreds of years before the exodus. This couldn't be a reference to Parareh. It appears that the Rehab here of which job is speaking is the enemy of God who, centuries later, was seditious lead deceived and embolden the wicked Pharaoh. Who is this enemy? He's the Dragon, the serpent,...

...the evil one of old. This is Satan himself. And yet job says, by his wisdom, God cut rayhab Rahab in pieces, and yet the serpent's flee. He's cut in pieces and yet Lee. Good News. Satan and evil have been defeated. However, it's not fully realized. His defeat began when he rebelled against God. At that moment Satan was cast out of Heaven, UN forfeited life, but that would only be realized later. Whatever occurred when Satan was expelled from his service to God, he was cut...

...in pieces. His Kingdom of evil was defeated the moment he rebelled. However, within time and history, ultimately this defeat would occur at the cross and even the end. It won't be realized until the end times. I once heard that Satan is like a be without a singing heard about a man driving down the road. His boy was in the back and they had the windows down, just driving, enjoy the breeze, enjoying the air, and be flew in. Little Boys said, Daddy, Daddy, there's a bee. Father, reach back there with his hand and he grabbed the bee and he threw out the window and it went out the front window and went right back in the back window. The boy said, Daddy, Daddy, there's a bee again, and daddy turned around. He said, son, it's okay,...

I've got a Stinger. Against sting anymore. That's what Satan is. He's a bee without a stinging. He's just buzzing around bugging him. He can't stay anymore. Jesus remove that. They're on the cross. However, it is interesting to know who wrote this text. Job, job, wrote this passage. The child of God who, more than any other person in the Bible, say Jesus Christ, the son of God himself, experience the own Slat of Satan. Any Joe walked with God and because of that he had a cross hair only from Satan himself lining him up. And by the way, if you walk with God, you'll have a cross hair on you as well. A man who lost his children, lost his riches, lost...

...his health, the man whose wife and friends turned against him, a man o Satan was personally allowed to torment. And yet, in the midst of this torment, in the midst of these struggles, in the midst of these trials. By faith, he writes that the one who is terrorizing him, Satan, is defeated. Wow, what incredible, amazing faith. That is, faith of jewel. Oh that you and I would have such faith that, in the midst of our terrors, in the midst of our trials, in the midst of the bad that occurs in our lives, we might declare Satan has been defeated, as has evil, as has our sin. They've been defeated, cut in pieces and are flee we truly are victors in the...

...midst of trials. I hope you believe it. I hope you know that. You know that. You know because of what Jesus has done in your life, Satan's been defeating it, your sins have been defeated, evil's been defeated, and I want you to claim that today, by faith, no matter what you're going through, by faith you're a victor. You're a child of God, because God said so. What amazing faith. By job, and what a lesson. Well, we'll continue our daily studies tomorrow. Will be in job chapters twenty eight through thirty one. I encourage you to go ahead and read ahead as we're making our way through the Bible, Job Twenty eight through thirty one. I'll see you back tomorrow, but let me pray with you before we go. Father, thank you so much for that amazing faith that job had. Lord. It truly is amazing to see that incredible...

...faith two thousand, two hundred years before Jesus ever walked the face of the earth. Job had faith in his mediator. Job had faith that you would destroy had the the one who is persecuted, father, thinking for help us to have that same Jesus name. We thank you again for joining us.
