Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

May 15 - Evening

"On another day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came with them to present himself before him. 

And the Lord said to Satan,
'Where have you come from?'

Satan answered the Lord,
'From roaming throughout the earth,
going back and forth on it.'

Then the Lord said to Satan,
'Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.'

'Skin for skin!'
Satan replied.
'A man will give all he has for his own life.
 But now stretch out your hand and strike his flesh and bones, and he will surely curse you to your face.'

- Job 2:1-5

The Heavenly Council Before YHWH    

The angels (or “sons of God”) including Satan appear before the Sovereign Lord (YHWH) in a heavenly council. This type of council is mentioned in these verses:

  • Psalm 82:1, “God presides in the great assembly; he renders judgment among the “gods”.
  • Psalm 89:6-7, “For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings? In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.
  • 1 Kings 22:19-23, “I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing around him on his right and on his left. And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’ One suggested this, and another that. Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’ ”

The Lord questions Satan concerning his recent activity, which Satan avows has been throughout the earth. The Lord then recognizes Job before Satan and credits Job with uprightness and the fear of the God while living on the earth that Satan has just come from. And, more Job maintains his integrity with faithfulness to the Lord in spite of his difficulties and grievous losses that came without any reason other than to prove Job’s integrity in worship. Admittedly, Job may be confused and unable to explain circumstances, but he still continues in faithfulness and trust.

Yet, with all the evidence Satan rejects God proposal that a man like Job could actually have faith and trust the Lord in the face of unexplainable loss. Satan says Job is just glad he is alive and physically unharmed. Satan’s counter proposal is the concept that a man will give up everything if he himself is allowed to live physically unharmed.

  Christian Quote from Church History
"It is impossible for a man to be a Christian without having Christ; and if he has Christ he has at the same time
all that is in Christ."

- Martin Luther
Something to Ponder??

The Protestant Reformation can be divided into
two broad movements:
1 - the Magisterial, which combined the church with the powers of the state
2 - the Radical, rejected any secular authority over the church.

The Magisterial groups included:
- Luther in Germany,
- Calvin in Geneva, Switzerland,
- King Henry VIII in England with his Church of England, - King James VI of Scotland with Episcopalianism.

The Radical side include a wide swing of extreme theological opinions:
- Michael Servetus with anti-trinitarianism;
- Munsterites with millennialism;
- Mennonites with pacifism;
- Schwenkfelders with the inner light movement;

Then there was Ulrich Zwingli in Zurich, Switzerland who rejected the mystical powers of the sacraments but practiced the use of the civil government to enforce Christian morality. When some of the followers of Zwingli rebaptized themselves (they were called Anabaptist because the Greek prefix ana- means “again, anew”) they started a new movement which became the beginning of the many Baptists denominations. Zwingli and the Anabaptists are an example of a portion of the Magisterial group going Radical in the Protestant Reformation.

On the east end of the southern slope of the HInnom Valley is an area known as the Potter’s Field since 400 AD. It is an area of about 2 acres where a cave has been enlarged and used for burial of strangers and homeless. It is believed this is the area of the potters house visited by Jeremiah (Jer. 18:1-4) and purchased by the high priest with Judas’ returned silver coins (Mt.27:6-10)

Confession to Action   Facts and Information

Do follow God because he makes my life better?
Do I attend a local church because it helps my family improve? Because of friends?
Would I follow the Lord if doing so meant my life would get worse?
Would I attend church if doing so jeopardized my family?
Would I name the name of Christ if I would lose my job and my friends…and everything?

  "Stern discipline awaits anyone who leaves the path;
    the one who hates correction will die."
