So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters – Job 42:12:13.
The words of Job justifying himself were ended. The word of Job judging and condemning himself began. Though his patience had not its perfect work, his repentance for his impatience had. He subscribes to the truth of God’s unlimited power, knowledge, and dominion.
Seek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall ant her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them – Isaiah 34:16.
Isaiah referred to his prophecies that God commanded him to write down with the phrase “book of the Lord.” Whoever lived to see the time of Edom’s destruction would have only to look to these prophecies to find agreement between what happened and what was predicted. Prophecy predicts and history reveals what has been in God’s mind for all time. The Bible gives a history of what has has happen and what will happen on the day of the return of the Lord.
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand – Revelation 1:3
The church which is the body of Christ has fallen into a spiritual sleep, this is Satan’s most subtle strategy. Satan causes Christians to fall into a sleep of death, in this dangerous position, they are spiritually asleep, and are unable to hear the voice of the Lord as He speaks to them. They are unaware of the movements of the enemy, they have a false sense of security concerning their own spiritual condition. They are unaware of the lateness of the hour or the impending danger of death or the return of Jesus in their spiritual slumber.
