13 If God ['elowahh] will not
withdraw [shuwb] his anger ['aph], the proud [rahab] helpers [`azar] do stoop [shachach] under
13 'God will not turn back His anger; Beneath Him crouch the
helpers of Rahab. NASB
When we hear the name Rahab, we
generally think of the woman who helped the two Israeli spies, sent by Joshua,
before the fall of Jericho. But that
event will not occur for another thousand years after the time of Job.
The name Rahab, is a general reference
for sin or evil. Egypt was called Rahab,
by Isaiah, due to its sinfulness. Rahab
is also a reference to a monster or a great evil force.
God resides in heaven. Heaven is the place of perfection. Beneath Him is the earth. And on the earth resides great evils. That is the setting for the who, what, and
where we live our lives.
Lest anyone get uppity about this world
and all its natural beauty, with the presumption that as goes this world, so
goes the history of humanity. Somehow
implying that if the world is safe and clean, then humanity will be safe and
The crouch, describes a predator's
posture just before it strikes its prey.
And, all this world has to offer humanity, is the unseen predatory
activity of Satan, and all who pursue the pattern of thinking which he has
God is perfect. God is perfect righteousness and perfect
justice. With that, all of the
blemishes, taints, and flaws of sin have no place.
In order to have freedom, liberty, opportunity,
prosperity, security, and therefore happiness, then all sin must be eliminated. These things cannot exist unless there is a
means in place for combating and defeating crime, tyranny, prejudice, even
self-righteousness, in other words all the components of sin.
God fights all manner of evil with
ruthlessness and consistency. God will
never compromise. God will never give in,
to anything less that absolute victory over all evil in every form.
Knowing that, should lead you out of
your little sinful habits and attitudes, and into a better frame of mind, which
is more consistent with how God wants you to think and behave.
Something to think about, maybe?
An awful lot of people, who are
believers in Christ, will go to heaven from all ages in history, and when they
get there, they are going to discover, too late of course, that they could have
had far more in life than they actually experienced.
As we move slowly through this book of
Job, you will see, as you should have discovered by now, that there is a vast
amount of doctrine contained within this book.
One of the reasons that we move so slowly, is so that you can ponder
each days study. Too much material gets
lost in the volumes of words. Besides, my
two best typing fingers, don't type that fast.
But a little principle here and there can be learned, and remembered,
and then utilized in the structuring of your life. Assuming that you are paying attention, that
We can't build much of a structure
within the soul in a day or two, but within a year, a decade, a lifetime, a
mountain of doctrine can be constructed within your soul, and that will transform
your faith into an immovable eternal fortress.
Take what you learn, examine it, ponder
it, learn it, and use it from within the content of your soul.
God did not design the human machine to
run on worldly fuel, which can only pollute the soul, but to run on spiritual
fuel, which is the fuel of Gods perfection.
