Beloved "Richard H Priday", everything is just emptiness without the Holy Spirit. For without Jesus we dig and run in all directions and do not know where we end up.

Ecclesiastes 1:1 The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.

2 Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.

3 What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?

4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.

5 The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he arose.

Matthew 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Be blessed in Jesus' Holy Name i love you in Christ. 1 Corintihans 15

Let the games begin; as they say. Job's lamentable situation was; up until this point met with silence of his "friends" for a week when he was mourning. Now; the seemingly endless dialogue between each of the 3 individuals and Job (eventually involving the more youthful FOURTH figure) was to begin; and encapsulate more than 30 chapters of scripture. At least the first few verses acknowledged Job's accomplishments in helping others (v. 3 and 4) before the criticism ensued. This; as far as I know is the only positive thing his friends said-and even in this case it was used against him. The "spirit" passing before his face in v. 15 of Eliphaz sure sounds like a demon; and whatever truth was stated; no doubt was inspired by Satan himself to further torment Job in his compromised condition.

It should be remembered that from what we can ascertain; Job never learned the cause of his suffering and the author if it was Moses or not was only later given this understanding. It should serve as a sober warning of the "accuser of the brethren" (Rev. 12:10) who continues his old tricks even to this day and until His doom comes to its final fruition. However the Spirit restrains him at present; the fact that God can give him authority to this level; and in fact surely would have killed him had God given permission should be a sober reminder to us not to trifle with principalities and powers apart from the power of the Spirit of God. Christ Himself and He alone has victory and determines when Satan is bound and sent to his final punishment (even if angels administer the action). We need to be praying for others going through "like temptations" as well (although I can't find the verse at present!)
