Death and Life Rest In. . . (Part 9 – The Conclusion)

So how did the challenge go?  Were you amazed at the number of negative confessions you made in your daily conversations?  What about the number of negative confessions your friends made in your conversations with them?  How many of them, you included, ended up actually having what they spoke of to happen?  And while there was such a short time between our previous post and this one, we hope that you will carry this message with you and really pay attention to your negative comments and make an effort to cease and desist all negative confessions.

We have come to the end of our message.  But before we go, we would like to summarize some of the main points that we believe are important for you to remember.

Death and Life Rest In. . . (Part 8)

So, in the story of Job, we have four tragic events taking place on the same day, each included the lost of human life and each completely orchestrated by Satan himself.  We see Satan’s ability to control those who are apparently loyal to him and operate at his bidding.  We see that he used the Sebeans and the Chaldeans, both a band of nomadic marauders, for his purposes and to carry out his plan.

So went Satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote (struck) Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown (Job 2:7).

He even struck Job with sore boils from the sole of his feet to the top of his head.

Death and Life Rest In. . . (Part 7)

So many people believe that God is the creator of most tragedies the happen in their life.  They do not realize that they have been deceived, tricked into blaming God for them instead of praising God, and asking for help with them.  And while the Old Testament scriptures have done more to support the image of a cruel, ruthless, and merciless deity, whose only purpose appears to be the chastisement of his creation by indiscriminately allowing bad things to happen to seemingly innocent men, women, and children, there is one infamous statement by Job that has done more to further this mentality.

And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord (Job 1:21).
