Job 26

1 But Job answered and said,

2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.

11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

  1. How Great Is Our God

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    We serve a great God. His power created the universe His ways are grander than we could ever imagine.

  2. 14 “Yet these are just the fringes of His ways [mere samples of His power], The faintest whisper of His voice! Who can contemplate the thunder of His [full] mighty power?” (AMP)

    Wow!! We serve a great, mighty, and terrible God! I stand in awe of you Jesus.

  3. AMP – 10 “He has inscribed a circular limit (the horizon) on the face of the waters At the boundary between light and darkness.

    There is a boundary between light and darkness that was created at the very beginning of time. God said let there be light and light was separated from darkness immediately.

    In our lives there has to be separation from light and darkness as well. We must separate the two. How can children of light walk in darkness, likewise how can children of darkness walk in the light?

    We must protect the Spirit of God in our lives (light) from the wiles of the enemy and the ways of the world. We cannot put on carnality and remain children of the light. We cannot play with sin. He has called us out of darkness to walk in the light, why would someone want to go back to the ways of the world and bring darkness of sin back into their lives?

    We must keep the light of His spirit alive within us, and keep the darkness at sin and the world at bay.

  4. 7. He stretches out the northern sky over vast reaches of emptiness; He hangs the earth itself on nothing.

    14. And all of this, all of these are the mere edges of His capabilities. We are privy to only a whisper of His power. Who then dares to claim understanding of His thunderous might? The Voice

    As Bro. Emory reminded us, God fills the universe, yet we can fit everything we know about Him into a bottle cap!

    How great is our God
    Sing with me, how great is our God…

  5. 12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

    13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

    Verse 12 reveals that there is power in His spoken Word. He spoke the Word and divided the sea. Thanks we to God that we have Hus Word and access to that same power.

    As the song as says:
    I can see
    Waters raging at my feet
    I can feel
    The breath of those surrounding me
    I can hear
    The sound of nations rising up
    We will not be overtaken
    We will not be overcome

    I can walk
    Down this dark and painful road
    I can face
    Every fear of the unknown
    I can hear
    All God’s children singing out
    We will not be overtaken
    We will not be overcome

    The same power that rose Jesus from the grave
    The same power that commands the dead to wake
    Lives in us, lives in us
    The same power that moves mountains when He speaks
    The same power that can calm a raging sea
    Lives in us, lives in us
    He lives in us, lives in us

    We have hope
    That His promises are true
    In His strength
    There is nothing we can’t do
    Yes, we know
    There are greater things in store
    We will not be overtaken
    We will not be overcome

    Greater is He that is living in me
    He’s conquered our enemy
    No power of darkness
    No weapon prevails
    We stand here in victory

  6. NOTHING HIDES

    6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

    The revelation of eternal judgement is revealed here. Consider the fact that hell is death or the place of the dead. Seeing that hell is naked before him, this means that even though a person is lost, dies and is judged to hell, they will never escape the knowledge of GOD. It is intriguing for me to consider that GOD will concern himself with the happenings in hell, further proving that lucifer is no god at all. But simply a vessel in the control of our GOD JESUS.

    We are wise to choose to serve the ONE GOD JESUS and bypass all the hopeless counterfeits. The eye of the LORD will forever be upon us.

  7. This chapter is captioned MSG “God Sets a Boundary Between Light and Darkness”. John 12:35 AMP says “So Jesus said to them, “The Light is among you [only] a little while longer. Walk while you have the Light [keep on living by it], so that darkness will not overtake you. He who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going [he is drifting aimlessly]. John 12:35-36 MSG says ” Jesus said, “For a brief time still, the light is among you. Walk by the light you have so darkness doesn’t destroy you. If you walk in darkness, you don’t know where you’re going. As you have the light, believe in the light. Then the light will be within you, and shining through your lives. You’ll be children of light.”

  8. 14 “These are some of the minor things he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who then can withstand his thunder?” TLB

  9. God is always speaking

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    Wow! Who can understand the thunders from the heavens. We serve an awesome God.

  10. 4 To whom hast thou uttered words? and whose spirit came from thee?

    5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.

    6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

    7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.

    8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

    9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.

    We Severe Great and Mighty God no one can compare the things God does no one can do what he does no god like our god

  11. 12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

    13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

  12. Job 6 today’s English version is sheo the dead is naked before god and abaddon the place of destruction had no covering from his eyes. I don’t want to ever here I fear you Jesus. Without you Jesus I am lost .

  13. Job 26:7-10 & 14 (NLT)
    7) God stretches the northern sky over empty space and hangs the earth on nothing.
    8) He wraps the rain in his thick clouds, and the clouds don’t burst with the weight.
    9) He covers the face of the moon, shrouding it with his clouds.
    10) He created the horizon when he seperated the waters; he set the boundary between day and night.

    14) These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?

  14. 2 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

    13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    Sometimes it hard for others to comprehend how almighty and powerful God is. God controls it all so why not trust him?

  15. 11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.

    12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.

  16. 6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.

    His power is everlasting! The enemy cannot hide from our lord Jesus Christ! We have all power and authority over the enemy, for we can go forth without fear!

  17. 7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
    God is sovereign He is great He is the creator of the universe and he hung the earth on nothing! How powerful is that! We must recognize the God that we serve,that he is almighty and all powerful and that he Controls everything!

  18. 6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
    Wow, this whole chapter was powerful just to read! Talking about the power of God and not all but just a small portion of the things he can do. Nothing is hidden he can see that lake of fire and the destruction hath no covering. Its no secret what hells all about. I knew about hell when i was in the world…before my holy ghost birthday…
    I was terrified i knew if i died i was gonna be burning FOREVER! it was no secret so dont sugar coat it!

  19. Job 26:14 (KJV Strong’s)

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways:
    but how little a portion is heard of him?
    but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    Francis Chan said “if God were an ocean, and your brain was a can. If you filled your brain with absolutely everything you could about God until it overflowed then you would have yet to scratch the surface of who God is, if God is an ocean.”

    Those is eternity that made it are truly kicking themselves wishing they had done more, given more, and spent more time with the Lord.

    Imagine how they feel sitting in the presence of Almighty God.

    Trust and obey him. It is well worth the ride.

    1 Corinthians 2:9 (KJV Strong’s)
    9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

  20. His Spirit made the heavens beautiful, and his power pierced the gliding serpent. These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?”
    Job 26:13‭-‬14 NLT

    This are the begining of all that he does. Our God is all powerful. At his voice and command were the things created in this world. Im am reminded of this scripture:
    “I am the Lord , the God of all the peoples of the world. Is anything too hard for me?
    Jeremiah 32:27 NLT

    With God we can do things

  21. v7 He stretches out the north over empty space; He hangs the earth on nothing.

    The Psalmist provided a great hymn of praise regarding the LORD’S continual control over the natural world .Psalm 104:5-9

  22. v7 He stretches out the north over empty space;
    He hangs the earth on nothing.

    GOD is in control.As HE.created all that exists, He has set guide
    lines for continued sustenance of all that HE had made.
    His A Mighty GOD!!!

  23. 14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    It doesn’t matter how much we are ever able to learn about Jesus, we will never be able to understand him. Thank you Jesus, that you allow us to learn more and more about you everyday.

  24. 2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

    13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    There is something to be said about how GOD controls everything. GOD can be the power in the arm that has no strength. When GOD was manifest in the flesh; he hand picked disciples to help grow the kingdom of GOD. What a mighty move of GOD in my life. Over the last couple days I was ready to give up. GOD has shown me that it was my flesh getting in the way. I had allowed the enemy to take one small situation and twist it inside me. I believe that it is not for me to understand the full power of our LORD. Just like it says at the end of verse 14: but the thunder of his power who can understand? Man GOD is awesome……Thank you Jesus…..Amen!!!!

  25. Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”

    We will never understand the power of God. We are privileged to feel it and see it. What a Almighty God we serve! I hear the sound of an abundance of rain and the thunder of his power. Their is nothing that can stand before the greatness of his strength. When the enemy comes in like a flood the Lord sets up a standard against him. Their is no depth too deep no situation too great the Lord cannot reach us and change. If we determine within ourselves to follow God with our whole heart He will fight for us. God will go before us when those you though we’re loyal to you leave you behind. He will stand by us when no one else will. He will lift us up when everyone else knocks us down and uses us. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world! I serve the God that made the entirety of it and not one inch belongs to the enemy. Stand for God and he will make us victorious.

  26. 2 How hast thou helped him that is without power? how savest thou the arm that hath no strength?

    3 How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?

    Alot of time we find ourselves without having strength, God always gives us strength, he counsels us when we need him, we have to trust in him, in some situations it’s hard to trust in people, let alone God, but I’ve learned that He is the only one to trust in,he provides for us, he heals us, he delivers us! He’s there, when you look around and there’s no one there, and your all alone, Gods there! I know this, because I’ve been alone, but I knew he was there! MY GOD IS AWESOME!

  27. iLove to Go Blog
    7God stretches the northern sky over empty space
    and hangs the earth on nothing.
    8He wraps the rain in his thick clouds,
    and the clouds don’t burst with the weight.
    9He covers the face of the moon,
    shrouding it with his clouds.

    Can you imagine…they pay scientists all that money to learn how the world operates and all along all they had to do is read the Bible. Ha, the spiritual and natural things in this world is found in the Word of God.

  28. 14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    How little do we actually know of Gods power and his very essence? We can describe the most amazing things he’s done on this earth and not even begin to scratch the surface of who he is. Who can understand the thunder of his power? Sounds like we can’t even begin to fathom the sound of his power, much less his actual power. Our God can do so much more than we can imagine, why do we doubt his ability to handle our situations?

  29. The top of the iceberg

    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    How little we know about God. God has demonsions that no one has tapped into. This is why it is so dangerous to be a know it all in the kingdom of God. Brother Emery said he is a ever revelating God. He continues to reveal himself to us on different ways. The more we study the word and share the revelations the more we understand him. When you feel like your mind has just been blown with revelation of him, you are just at the tip of the iceberg.

  30. Where do we sit between good and evil? Can you see the fence in the distance because you ran from it after sitting on it for so long? He separates the world into light and darkness. I choose to serve the Light and know that God has destroyed my fence and I no longer have to worry about the God that I serve. He has delivered me. Hell has no hold on me!

  31. “The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.”
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭26:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Many times people do not like when they are corrected. All of Heaven shakes when the Lord corrects. How aww we to think we can be any different?

  32. Job 26:7 He spreads out the northern skies over empty space; he suspends the earth over nothing.

    As much as we have tried to really describe God and his majesty. We do not simply have the words to do so. Doing so we lower him, because He is indescribable. He is above an beyond what we can think or fathom.

  33. How hast thou counselled him that hath no wisdom? and how hast thou plentifully declared the thing as it is?(Job 26:3 KJV)

    You give knowledge to those whom seek it and wisdom to those willing to apply that knowledge. Our God is so great he gives us great revelation. He opens not only physical blind eyes but also the spiritual. Once we have this gift we are not to lean on our own understanding but on God.

  34. “These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?””
    ‭‭Job‬ ‭26:14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    We have only seen a small glimpse of what is to come. This is just the earnest of our inheritance.

    “That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.””
    ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  35. 1-4 “Well, you’ve certainly been a great help to a helpless man! You came to the rescue just in the nick of time! What wonderful advice you’ve given to a mixed-up man! What amazing insights you’ve provided! Where in the world did you learn all this? How did you become so inspired?

    To me, Job is being a bit facetious. If anyone has a right to, it would be Job in these circumstances. However, it may be an indication that his friends lack experience in Godly relationships. These friends may be very intelligent but are in effect Godly immature. What Job needs to hear from his friends is reminders from the words of God.

    Deuteronomy 31:6 – Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he [it is] that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

    Hebrews 13:5 – [Let your] conversation [be] without covetousness; [and be] content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

    Joshua 1:9 – Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God [is] with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    1 Peter 5:7 – Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

    If we find we are the friends of someone who is battling, let’s not “pile-on” or be a Captain Obvious. Instead let’s build each other up with the Word of God.

  36. 13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
    14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    His ways are not our ways, his thoughts are above our thoughts. We may not understand everything about our God, but we can have the mind if Christ, to see things and situations through his eyes. We serve a great God and nothing compares to his greatness.

  37. 14 These are just the beginning of all that he does, merely a whisper of his power. Who, then, can comprehend the thunder of his power?

    No one can comprehend the power of God. He is the creator of all things. Job does an excellent job of explaining his might, but still he can’t understand how great and mighty God really is.

  38. And these are but the outer fringe of his works; how faint the whisper we hear of him! Who then can understand the thunder of his power?”
    Job 26:14 NIV

    God is so awesome that we can’t even begin to comprehend His power and authority all we can do is praise Him for His mighty works.

  39. 7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
    8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.

    Just how beautiful and great is my Lord!!! Our minds can’t capture how big Big BIG HE IS!!!! We need to lift our heads up and ask Him to see how He sees so we can be able to comprehend how BIG HE IS!!! NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU LORD!!!!

  40. 14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?

    God is all powerful who can understand his glory is unimaginable. God knows where we are and where we need to be. Lord almighty lead me and guide me to your ways and not mine.
