Job 12:22-23



22 He discovereth [galah] deep things [`amoq] out of darkness [choshek], and bringeth out [yatsa'] to light ['owr] the shadow of death [tsalmaveth].

23 He increaseth [saga'] the nations [gowy], and destroyeth ['abad] them: he enlargeth [shatach] the nations [gowy], and straiteneth [nachah] them again. KJV-Interlinear



22 'He reveals mysteries from the darkness, And brings the deep darkness into light. 23 'He makes the nations great, then destroys them; He enlarges the nations, then leads them away. NASB



Within the context of this chapter, Job is speaking of wicked people, and Gods ability to see through, thwart, and ultimately control all of their plans.


He reveals the mysteries of the world in two ways. First, He demonstrates the truths of life through Bible doctrine. To those who reject God, Christ, and His word, Bible doctrine is a mystery, and is even considered silliness.


Second, God reveals all of the deep and darkest secrets of humanity. Those who would pursue evil and plot deceit, sin, and wickedness in its many forms, can never do so in complete secrecy.


God knows all of the thoughts and plans of humanity, and has known them since eternity past. There is nothing that God does not know. There is nothing that man can conjure up, and nothing that can take God by surprise.


All of the well thought out plans of Iran, of politicians, of criminals, of gossips, of office competition, of anything you can think of, are known by God.


God can control the outcome of the life of the individual, God can control the destiny of a nation.


Anyone, any nation, can be made great overnight, or destroyed overnight.


Your life can skyrocket to greatness, or nosedive to destruction, and God controls it all.


Since God controls your life, every aspect of your life, then you might want to consider getting in line with what God wants out of you, during your life.


This does not mean that you can sit on a porch and watch life go by. One of the many things expected from you, is responsibility. And you will one day be held accountable for how you conduct your life.


You might want to review, from time to time, the spiritual checklist we put together some time ago, just to keep yourself on track.


And, be sure that you do not trap yourself into entertaining yourself with your own private thoughts. Too often believers can drift away from a strict and controlled thought process, which the spiritual life is, by finding little excuses for thinking things that they should not.


This is not limited to naughty thoughts, but can include many types of wants and desires, entertainments, even resentments or judgments which may make you feel better for the moment, but are really distractions away from your spiritual growth.


Remember that your spiritual life is the most valuable possession you have. Don't discount it with little petty thoughts or activities.


God knows the world and the world will not destroy itself, or you. God has already revealed to us the principle of dispensations. We already know the future of our planet.


The next major event is not a national election, but the Rapture, followed by the Tribulation, followed by the Millennium, and so forth. Atomic bombs, weather warming trends, storms, diseases, and on and on, none of these will derail Gods plan.


Don't worry about what the world will or will not do, but concern yourself with advancing in your spiritual life. The world cannot help you. Bible doctrine can.

End Of Lesson

Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
