I have so much I want to say about the Book of JOB! GLORY! Let me just say, please read my personal, supernatural Testimony in my book: THE LORD IS OUR DEFENSE. I cannot compare my suffering to Job. Then again, none of us, not even Job, can compare our suffering to the LORD our Savior, Jesus Christ. No man ever suffered like Jesus Christ. He chose to suffer for each one of us because He loves us. He could have called legions of angels to deliver Him from the cross, and destroy all of His enemies. He didn't have to die. He chose to die. GLORY!
All I can do is share my story with you, in hopes of encouraging you to trust God no matter what you are going through. I can tell you that joy does come in the morning, and every Word in the Bible is TRUTH! I am living proof that God is real, He loves each one of us and there is nothing impossible for Him! HE IS THE SAME GOD YESTERDAY, TODAY AND FOREVER! CALL ON HIM AND HE WILL ANSWER YOU AND SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS!

THE BOOK OF JOB:
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
2And there were born unto him seven sons and three daughters.
3His substance also was seven thousand sheep, and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred she asses, and a very great household; so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east.
4And his sons went and feasted in their houses, every one his day; and sent and called for their three sisters to eat and to drink with them.
5And it was so, when the days of their feasting were gone about, that Job sent and sanctified them, and rose up early in the morning, and offered burnt offerings according to the number of them all: for Job said, It may be that my sons have sinned, and cursed God in their hearts. Thus did Job continually.
6Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
7And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
8And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil?
9Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?
10Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
11But put forth thine hand now, and touch all that he hath, and he will curse thee to thy face.
12And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.
13And there was a day when his sons and his daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
14And there came a messenger unto Job, and said, The oxen were plowing, and the asses feeding beside them:
15And the Sabeans fell upon them, and took them away; yea, they have slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
16While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
17While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The Chaldeans made out three bands, and fell upon the camels, and have carried them away, yea, and slain the servants with the edge of the sword; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
18While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, Thy sons and thy daughters were eating and drinking wine in their eldest brother's house:
19And, behold, there came a great wind from the wilderness, and smote the four corners of the house, and it fell upon the young men, and they are dead; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.
20Then Job arose, and rent his mantle, and shaved his head, and fell down upon the ground, and worshipped,
21And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
22In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.
I love this guy! He is so full of the love of Christ and He is such an inspiration to the world! I thought this page was the best place to add this video. I know his story has nothing to do with Job, but most people I meet are so depressed and simply live to have pity parties. I'm hoping this video will encourage you and wake you up from your pity party! GOD HAS PLANS FOR EACH OF US! The devil is a liar! NEVER GIVE UP! SEEK GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART AND YOU WILL FIND HIM. YOU WILL DISCOVER HIS PLANS AND THEY WILL BE ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ANYTHING YOU COULD ASK OR IMAGINE! This video was recorded in 2013, before Nick met his wife. GLORY TO GOD!
This video was recorded in 2015, AFTER Nick got married, had one son and had another child on the way. ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE FOR GOD!! GLORY TO GOD!
