Job 42:5-6, 10

God Restores Double to Job


Job 42:5,6,10 I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear but now my eye sees You therefore I retract and I repent in dust and ashes (10) the LORD restored the fortunes of Job when he prayed for his friends and the LORD increased all that Job had twofold this is the end of the book of Job when Job finally got the revelation God was not the one tormenting him not the one terrorizing him not the one that stole from him he finally understood what we can plainly read in John 10:10 the thief comes not but to steal, kill and destroy Yeshua said I came that you might have life and have it abundantly Job didn’t know that spent the whole book from verse 5 of chapter 1 until verse 5 of chapter 42 arguing with God, angry with God never coming to God by covenant never saying God what have you said that I might enforce what you said against the enemy all the time he was saying God it’s unfair God you’re treating me unjustly God you need to change, stop it not realizing, no God was not the one attacking him satan was the one attacking him and the only possible authority that he had was whatever God had said the only authority any of us have on planet earth is the word that God has given us by a covenant and that’s why the Bible is so important this is not a history book it’s not a story book it’s not a book of examples this is a book of covenants and God made a covenant with us by the blood of Yeshua Ha Mashiach Jesus the Messiah we’re grafted into the covenant with Abraham and the covenant made with the house of Israel and the house of Judah talked about in Jeremiah 31:31and following and that covenant gives us authority to exercise God’s word on this earth to speak to the enemy and shut him down as an ambassador with the authority that God has given us Job didn’t know that until chapter 42 I believe Job could have terminated the affliction in 9 minutes 9 days or 9 months it took him 9 months to get a revelation the revelation was God I’ve only heard of you I knew about you I never knew who you were until today and that’s what he’s saying in verse 5 and once he gets the revelation God you’re not my enemy you’re not the one tormenting me you’re not the one that’s destroyed you’re my only hope of deliverance you’re my only hope of freedom you’re the one who loves me you’re the one who gave me your word you’re the one who made a covenant with me and the consequence of that is verse 6 therefore I retract, I repent in dust and ashes forgive me and the end result when Job got that revelation verse 10 the LORD restored double everything that the enemy had stolen the LORD restored double that’s just an amazing thing to think about I’ve seen that many many times my father back in 1964 lost a business he’s a petroleum geologist He’s still alive today at the time that I’m shooting this particular segment and He’s 93 years old in 1964 lost his business ended up in quite a bit of debt took him about 10 years to recover the end result of that was he began to study a particular basin of natural gas and ended up receiving a large royalty income from that basin as a result of having lost his business several years earlier he would have never gotten involved in studying how to solve a problem in that basin of natural gas had he not lost the business he had before what he received as a result of the studies that he did and what he was able to acquire in gas royalties was much much greater than the company he had owned formerly ever would have amounted to many many times the enemy means something for evil means to destroy and God has a plan God is an opportunist God will use everything the enemy does and restore double, triple tenfold, hundredfold to you so when the enemy comes it doesn’t matter what he does the end result in your life has nothing to do with what the enemy does nothing that happens to you can harm you how you respond to what happens to you determines the outcome in your life and in the end Job responded to God and said God I need your grace I need your help I can’t do it, I repent I retract, he quit blaming God and repented and the end result was God restored double God will do the same for you today in any area of disappointment any area where the enemy has come and stolen from you or shut something down blocked one of your goals if you’ll come before God and receive his grace God will restore double, tenfold I just hear in the spirit there’s somebody God is saying to you I will restore tenfold to you what the enemy has stolen and that is a word today God is a restorer, a redeemer and He will restore many many fold in people’s lives what the enemy came to steal so the issue is God do I trust you even in a difficult circumstance to realize this is not the end this is only the beginning it’s like a chess game the enemy made his move and God is making His move and God will restore He will redeem and it will be many fold what you had before God bless you
