Job 38:19-21



19 Where is the way [derek] where light ['owr] dwelleth [shakan]? and as for darkness [choshek], where is the place [maqowm] thereof,

20 That thou shouldest take [laqach] it to the bound [gabuwl] thereof, and that thou shouldest know [biyn] the paths [nathiyb] to the house [bayith] thereof?

21 Knowest [yada`] thou it, because thou wast then born [yalad]? or because the number [micpar] of thy days [yowm] is great [rab]? KJV-Interlinear



19 'Where is the way to the dwelling of light? And darkness, where is its place, 20 That you may take it to its territory, And that you may discern the paths to its home? 21 'You know, for you were born then, And the number of your days is great! NASB



God inserts a little irony into His comments. Since Job is so old, for Job must have been over a hundred years old by now, then he must know all there is to know about anything and everything. Of course we do not know Jobs exact age at this point in time. That information is never revealed.


But since Job is so old (here is the irony), he must be as old as God, and therefore most certainly knows the answers to anything and everything.


In our day, we can say that mankind has been around nearly as long as God has lived. Our history since Adam has been approximately 6000 years and counting. So, given that amount of time on the planet, man most certainly has come up with all of the answers to everything. Right? And of course this is a little jab at mans lack of history when compared to eternity.


I will tentatively suggest that the celebrations following this Novembers elections, may very well turn to tears of sorrow not too long thereafter, and for only one reason. Not because of the people who are going to be elected, but because the nation and the world seems to be slipping deeper and deeper into a spiritually negative pit.


God asks the obvious question again. Where does light come from? Where does it go at dusk?


Can you go to light or to the darkness and escort it to its various destinations? Can you preserve light? Can you support its existence and perpetuate it along its way?


And in other words, light represents truth. Darkness represents the absence of truth. Can man monitor truth? Can man find the source of truth? Can man escort truth on its way through life?


And of course man has had many thousands of years to demonstrate his abilities in promoting truth, and what have we to show for it all? Well, we have many empires that have come and gone. We have had many nations that have come and gone. We have had many peoples that have run off to uncharted territories in order to escape persecution. We have had many fall into the classes of the unemployed, the sick and the feeble, the persecuted, and the unfairly treated, the cheated, and this list goes on and on.


Never before in history have there been so many opinions and views and philosophies and differences, than we have today. And we know the answers?


Well, the obvious answer to Gods question is, 'No, humanity does not have the answers.'


We have never had the answers, and we never will. That is, we will never have the answers to life, apart from access to God.


The youth of today say what the youth have said in every decade before them. 'It is the 21st century.' 'It is 2008.' As though these latter dates in history carry some meaning of superiority to former generations.


And guess what, the generation of the Rapture will be the absolute last generation in our dispensation, the one immediately prior to the Tribulation, and the seven years of the Tribulation will be the worst of the worst in all of human history, even though it will have the greatest of all of the technologies ever.


So the calendar of human history has absolutely nothing to do with wisdom. In fact, the more knowledge we accumulate, the further we seem to get from truth.


Where does the light come from? From the flow of electrons, from the sun, and is that as far as mans search goes? Is there nothing more?

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.
