The Book of Job ~ Chapter Ten
"Although You know that I am not wicked,
and there is no one who can deliver
from Your hand?
Your hands have made me
and fashioned me, an intricate unity;
Yet you would destroy me."
(Job 10:7, 8)
Today is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, the most solemn holy day on the Jewish calendar. Beginning at sundown yesterday, September 27th, the Day of Atonement is the culmination of the high holy days that began ten days ago with Rosh Hashanah, the Feast of Trumpets. Like the "days of repentance" or "days of awe" leading up to it, this day is also marked by fasting, prayer, and repentance (Leviticus 16:29-33). This great day of intercession, "a day of deliverance and salvation," in which the high priest entered the Holy of Holies and offered the blood sacrifice on behalf of the sins of the people, pictures what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us on the cross (Hebrews 9:11-15). "...but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Hebrews 9:26b). The Day of Atonement is considered a Sabbath, no matter what day of the week it falls on. No work is to be done this day, including at home, so people can get serious about sin and pray for forgiveness. Not doing any work reminds us that we are saved wholly by God's grace, through faith. "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Ephesians 2:8, 9). This forgiveness we receive is solely the gift of God. On the annual Day of Atonement, it wasn't enough for the high priest to serve on the right day with the right purpose, the people had to have the right heart attitude. We also, must repent and receive what our Great High Priest has done for us on that ultimate day of atonement, when Christ was crucified on the Cross (Romans 10:9; 1 John 1:9). Many see the Day of Atonement as a picture of Israel's future cleansing when Messiah appears to deliver them, cleanse them, and establish them in His kingdom. At the end of the book of Daniel, we read of a forty-five day period that provided the basis for our 45-day MAGNIFY journey that we began on the Feast of Trumpets. "Blessed is he who waits and comes to the one thousand three hundred and thirty-five days" (12:12). This period of forty-five days (the difference between the two numbers given in v. 11 and 12) represents a period of cleansing and purification prior to the setting up of Christ's kingdom in the world. The Lord has sanctified this 45-day season (a representation of the current forty-fifth presidency and administration), as He has those future 45 days (when He will set up His new administration in the millennial kingdom), so that our hearts may be more fully consecrated to His purposes in these last days, which He is making known in this Year of Divine Government (inaugurated on the Feast of Trumpets), as He is turning over the tables of human governments and returning our attention more fully to God's greater and more glorious government of the soul! May we take serious the gracious time we have been given to fast and pray and make much of Jesus, as we Magnify No Other Name, and set our feet with purpose to walk the path the Lord has set before us which leads to repentance and restoration (Hebrews 10:19-25)! "In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength..." (Isaiah 30:15).

"The LORD is my rock
and my fortress and my deliverer."
(2 Samuel 22:2)

Every person has the opportunity for their own personal Day of Atonement. To experience the marvelous "delivering" and "saving" work of our great High Priest Jesus Christ is the greatest privilege known to man. To come to Christ a repentant sinner and receive His atonement is the greatest event in history. In that day all our iniquities and transgressions are blotted out and our sins are cast into the depths of the sea, and a glorious new day and life begins. It is no wonder the Book of Jonah is read on the Day of Atonement as a reminder of God's great mercy and forgiveness. One touch from heaven is all we need to set our life on an entirely new course. When the Lord allowed Job's life to be touched by the hand of Satan his life was wrought with pain and suffering, because the enemy only comes "to steal, and to kill, and to destroy" (John 10:10a). The devil wants to take everything from us and leave us empty and bitter, longing for death and cursing God while we wait to die. "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 6:23). But when the hand of Christ Jesus, our great Deliverer, reaches down and touches us, He draws us out of the depths of our sin and raises us up to a life of inexplicable joy and extraordinary privilege and blessing. Jesus came to heal us of the sickness of our soul which has crippled us and made us weak, to give us new life, "that we may have it more abundantly" (John 10:10b). Job was crying out to be relieved from his terrible troubles and trials, but like the annual Day of Atonement, our distresses are only short lived, and soon we find our need for deliverance again and again. "O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God - through Jesus Christ our Lord!" (Romans 7:24, 25). Only in Jesus Christ can we find the true and lasting deliverance we need that will break the yoke of sin and set us on a course to heaven that will bring us joy all our days, regardless of our circumstances. Let us pray for all the drowning souls in this world to accept the hand that is reaching down from heaven to rescue and deliver them - they cannot save themselves no matter how good they are or how hard they try. "He sent from above, He took me; He drew me out of many waters. He delivered me from my strong enemy...He delivered me because He delighted in me" (Psalm 18:16, 19b).

"And so all Israel will be saved,
as it is written: "The Deliverer will come out of Zion,
and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob;
for this is My covenant with them,
when I take away their sins."
(Romans 11:26)
Read: Job Chapter Ten

"Although You know that I am not wicked,
and there is no one who can deliver from Your hand?"
(Job 10:7)

At first, Job was looking for a mediator to communicate his case before God, because he knew he wasn't qualified to stand before the Lord on his own. But soon he found himself right back where he started, loathing his life and wishing he were never born (v. 18). "My soul loathes my life; I will give free course to my complaints" (Job 10:1). Job's earnestly begins praying for a deliverer who could save him from his purposeless existence. And the longer he sat wallowing in his pain and self-pity the more bitter he became. He struggled with how God could so delicately and intricately knit the human body in a mother's womb, but them allow that same precious life to suffer such pain in this life. "Your hands have made me and fashioned me, an intricate unity; yet You would destroy me. Remember, I pray that You have made me like clay, and will You turn me into dust again?" (Job 10:8-9). Job feels that instead of offering some relief, the Lord is sending in reinforcements only to increase suffering. "You renew Your witness against me, and increase Your indignation toward me; changes and war are ever with me" (v. 17). Job was running out of hope, like so many people today. He heart and mind were deeply troubled as they had never been before, because his desire to worship and honor God was being overshadowed by his loss and suffering. Even his friends couldn't look past the physical devastation that surrounded him. The Lord will bring us to the end of ourselves and remove all our supports in order that we might recognize our great need of Him. He has created us to know Him and to have a deep, abiding personal relationship with Him, so that we might spend our days praising Him and bringing glory and honor to His name. Job's life was changed dramatically by the undeserved attacks of the enemy so that he might be an example to us of the devastating toll that sin takes on our lives. Sin strips us of everything and leaves us open and vulnerable to Satan's vicious and deadly attacks. Let us pray for our friends who are suffering, who may feel like their lives are a waste and have no purpose in life if all they have to face every day is constant grief and pain. May God give them the grace to persevere and to trust Him for better days; and may we lead them to the One who alone can deliver them from their troubles. "Oh, magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His name together...The poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!" (Psalm 34:3, 6-9).

"Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You;
let such as love Your salvation say continually,
"The LORD be magnified!"
But I am poor and needy; yet the LORD thinks upon me.
You are my help and deliverer;
do not delay, O my God."
(Psalm 40:16, 17)
"LORD, I know that You can do everything,
and that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You."
(Job 42:2)
