“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how

known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?”  (Romans 11:33,34)

“And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a
perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and

28:9)

VI.  A Touch of the Eternal, the book of Job--Oldest book in the Bible
with one of the oldest subjects, suffering.

“O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how

Suffering is a humanity issue, the
prime theme of Job, "Why do the
righteous suffer for no wrong
which they have done?", and it is
interesting to go beyond world
labels to comprehend that Job, like
Melchideck of the Bible was before
any label such as  Hebrew, Jew,
Arab, Islam, or Christian.
This is
where God
started the
world, and
this is where
He intends
to END it!
“Have pity upon me, have pity
upon me, O ye my friends; for the
hand of God hath touched me.  
Why do ye persecute me as God,
and are not satisfied with my
flesh?  Oh that my words were
now written! oh that they were
printed in a book!  That they were
graven with an iron pen and lead
in the rock for ever!  For I know
that my redeemer liveth, and that
he shall stand at the latter day
upon the earth:  And though after
my skin worms destroy this body,
yet in my flesh shall I see God:  
Whom I shall see for myself, and
mine eyes shall behold, and not
another; though my reins be
consumed within me.”  (Job  19:
21-27)
"Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea,
come, buy wine and milk without money and without price.  Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is
not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is
good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.  Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall
live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David.  Behold, I have given
him for a witness to the people, a leader and commander to the people.  Behold, thou shalt call a nation that
thou knowest not, and nations that knew not thee shall run unto thee because of the LORD thy God, and for
the Holy One of Israel; for he hath glorified thee.  Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him
while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return
unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.  For my
thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.  For as the heavens are
higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.  
 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth,
and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:  So shall my
word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall  accomplish that which I
please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.  For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with
peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall
clap their hands.  Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the
myrtle tree: and it shall be to the LORD for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.”  (From the
Prophet Isaiah, Isaiah 55)
“What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?   Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed
the oracles of God.  For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?  God forbid: yea, let God be true,
but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. But if our
unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say? Is God unrighteous who taketh vengeance? (I speak as a man) God
forbid: for then how shall God judge the world?  For if the truth of God hath more abounded through my lie unto his glory; why yet am I also
judged as a sinner?  And not rather, (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come?
whose damnation is just. What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are
all under sin; As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:  There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.  
They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one. Their throat is an open
sepulchre; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips:  Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:  Their
feet are swift to shed blood:  Destruction and misery are in their ways:  And the way of peace have they not known:  There is no fear of God
before their eyes.  Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be
stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.  Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by
the law is the knowledge of sin.  But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference:  For all have
sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:  Whom God hath
set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the
forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.  
Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith.
 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Is he the God of the Jews only? is he not also of the
Gentiles? Yes, of the Gentiles also: Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.  Do we
then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.”  (Romans 3)
