Job 30:9-10



9 And now am I their song [nagiynah], yea, I am their byword [millah].

10 They abhor [ta`ab] me, they flee far [rachaq] from me, and spare [chasak] not to spit [roq] in my face [paniym]. KJV-Interlinear



9 'And now I have become their taunt, I have even become a byword to them. 10 'They abhor me and stand aloof from me, And they do not refrain from spitting at my face. NASB



We need to remember that the Bible is a workbook for life. Life comes from God and this is his textbook for our preparation in the spiritual life for living in this world now, and for the next life in eternity.


These stories are not here for entertainment, and not for a history lesson regurgitating what was said by someone in the distant past.


2 Tim. 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is God breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; 17 that the man of God may be mature, equipped for every good work. NASB


All scripture was written by men, but the source of their words comes from God. That makes the Bible the single and only book, which contains the accuracy of truth, and our window through which we can see it.


Job is the representation of truth. His life in prosperity is the representation of living in truth. His suffering is the representation of the worlds rejection of truth.


God is truth. Any rejection of truth is a rejection of God.


There are three members of the trinity - Father, Son, and Sprit. All, or many, religions recognize a higher deity (something obscure, or the Father), but they reject the Son who is identified in the scriptures.


Since man is a sinner and therefore unable to enter into a relationship with God (imperfection cannot have a relationship with perfection), then God (the Father) set out a plan by which man can come to Him, but through the work of the Son, who eliminated that imperfection barrier. Rejecting that plan is the same as rejecting God the Father.


Man through religion, defines his relationship with God, or some higher plane of existence, as one through which man obtains by means of mans own effort. Imperfection cannot make itself perfect.


Therefore that is what sets Christianity apart from all, repeat, all other philosophies, religions, cults, beliefs and so forth. Jesus Christ is the single difference between them all. Christianity is the only faith, which recognizes that Jesus Christ is the only path to God and the spiritual life. Everything else rejects Christ.


Christianity is a relationship with God. Everything else is mans being impressed with mans own attributes.


So, when truth is rejected, truth becomes the target of ridicule, taunting, spitting, etc. That is what people did to Job. That is what people did to Christ. That is what people do when they reject truth, are indifferent toward truth, compromise or redefine truth to something that is more convenient to their thinking.


But the legitimate spiritual life is like living within a normal community, with responsibilities, freedoms, prosperity, having the finer things of life. Rejecting truth, or indifference toward it, is like living in the desert, chewing on bitter roots, wearing rags, and taunting the nicer folks as they happen to walk by.


Spiritually deficient people are the scum of the earth. Not scum as you are probably thinking, but scum within their souls. A person can be either poor or wealthy, talented or not, and still be in the spiritual scum category.


The spiritually deficient person adopts the anti-doctrine attitude, which becomes their song, their pattern of life. And by this they ridicule truth and make themselves stand aloof, detached, distant, better than truth.

Now is the time to post a prayer.

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.
