34 He beholdeth [ra'ah] all high [gaboahh] things: he is a king [melek]
over all the children [ben] of pride [shachats]. KJV-Interlinear
34 'He looks on everything that
is high; He is king over all the sons of
God here concludes His description of a creature,
marvelously made, undefeatable and nearly indestructible. One who stirs up turmoil into a muddy murky
sea of seemingly boiling water. One who
cruises his domain without regard to the secrecy of his own movements, but can
lurk beneath the water and spring on its prey with terrible speed and confidence
of its kill.
And now we are told that this creature is a proud
creature. A characteristic that does not
exist in animals. And not only proud,
but the king of all that are proud. So
now, we know that this creature, the crocodile which we have been studying, is
only a symbol, representing Satan the proudest of them all.
Throughout ancient history, the crocodile head has
long been a symbol used for the Pharaohs, as well as devil worshipers.
Satan who is the father of lies, the author of sin, and
the master of deceit and confusion, has longed to rise to levels of power and
authority above the most high, namely God.
Satan cruises this world, which he thinks belongs to
him, stirring up trouble and promoting confusion, just as we have seen
throughout this book of Job.
And while people see and know of his antics and
mannerisms and have known throughout all of history, they still ignore the warnings
from heaven and flirt with the danger out from this world every day of their
lives. And not only flirt with danger,
but embrace it, making it their chosen pattern of life.
Lost in the fog of life, unable to see clearly
anything because of lack of truth in their souls, people disregard the dangers
of Leviathan (the evils of the world), the stubbornness of the Behemoth
(refusal to change), and pursue one bizarre idea after another.
We all have our Behemoth and Leviathan. We all view life from different
perspectives. We all face challenges of
one sort or another. To some the
challenges are physical, to others they are mental, but regardless of your
situation in life, there is only one person who can reign in all of the madness
of confusion and suffering of this world, and bring something better, and that
person is Jesus Christ.
God controls history.
The world is nothing more than an ego gone astray from reality, and it
offers nothing more than just that.
Bible doctrine is the only path back to truth and reality, and the hope
(confidence) of a better life both now, and in the life to come.
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.
