ELIPHAZ – A SKILLED THEOLOGIAN (READING THE BOOK OF JOB)

After the terrible calamity having fallen upon Job, and after he’s been heard uttering  terrible, dark words, Eliphaz say something. Chapter 4 and 5 in the Book of Job contents Eliphaz first word in answer to Job. Eliphaz have a revelation: 

Elifas x

” Now a thing was secretly brought to me, and mine ear received a little thereof. In thoughts from the visions of the night, when deep sleep falleth on men, Fear came upon me, and trembling, which made all my bones to shake.  Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up:  It stood still, but I could not discern the form thereof: an image was before mine eyes, there was silence, and I heard a voice..”                       (Book of Job 4:12 – 16)

Eliphaz knew that even angels must sometimes be told something, by their Creator:

Behold, he put no trust in his servants; and his angels he charged with folly”                     (Book of Job 4:18)                                      

  How right isn’t he, Eliphaz, after all ! Even the apostle Paul made some reference to his words: 

  “He taketh the wise in their own craftiness: and the counsel of the froward is carried headlong.”  (Book of Job 5:13, compare 1 Cor. 3:19)

   How skilled a theologian, he is, this Eliphaz ! He will end up the winner in this discussion, don’t you think so?  Yes.

One thought on “ELIPHAZ – A SKILLED THEOLOGIAN (READING THE BOOK OF JOB)

  1. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the idea
    of a user in his/her brain that how a user can understand it.
    Thus that’s why this piece of writing is perfect.
    Thanks!
