25 For I know [yada`] that my
redeemer [ga'al] liveth [chay], and that he shall stand [quwm] at the latter ['acharown]
day upon the earth [`aphar]: KJV-Interlinear
25 'And as for me, I know that my
Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth. NASB
Job has already claimed that one greater then he, a
God no less, is his advocate before God.
And now he further defines his savior as a redeemer, or one who will
purchase him out of the bondage of this life's burdens. And, this redeemer also lives, but not only
lives but is life, eternal life.
This redeemer will stand, but not only stand, this is
one who will rise up, to stand. And this
standing will occur in the latter days, or the end of the age, or at the final
dispensation of human history.
We call this the Second Advent.
Job was well aware of his position as sinful man. Job was well aware of his need for a
redeemer. And here redeemer, 'gaal,'
refers to the purchase another out of their debts, the purchase back of a farm
or ones livelihood, the ransom of a slave out of bondage, to redeem the
forfeited rights belonging to a kinsman (family), to vindicate honor, to avenge
the death (sin) of a loved one, by taking the murderer (sin) to court and
executing justice (the cross).
All of this required one who was man, that is the one
rising up (out of the dust), standing before God, equal with God, as an
advocate, and the same one who has redeemed through justice, those who are not
able to redeem themselves. That is you
This same person, this advocate, this one who is equal
with God, this same one who will rise up in resurrection after paying this
debt, this same one who will be born of the seed of the woman (promise to Adam
and Eve), this same one will again stand on his own two feet, being man, since
man has two feet, and He will do this in the latter days, the end of human
Job knew and understood the promises of God, the need
for the redemption process, namely the payment required by justice for sin, the
ultimate death of that redeemer in accomplishing that payment, and thus the
rising up again (rising up means out of the dust) or resurrection, then the
standing again after all of this has been accomplished, in victory.
And this is only verse 25. Job has much more to say.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
