The Revelation of God to Job

Posted on Updated on

“The Lord has His way in the whirlwind
and the storm, and clouds are the dust of His feet.”
—Nahum 1:9

The Revelation of God

The Lord does not repeat anything that Elihu had said. Job has already heard about his deliverance through the Ransom; he has already heard the explanation of God’s dealings with him. It is not more teaching that Job needs, but a direct interview with God. That kind of revelation of the Lord is going to bring him to the dust, and give him a glimpse into the heart of the One who brought him to this point in the first place.

“Who is this that darkens my counsel with words without knowledge?” These are the first words to meet Job’s ears. Job had said that before his troubles began, the “counsel of God” had been in his tent, but he is now told that he had “darkened,” or brought a veil over, that counsel by his multitude of words

“Who is this?” demands the Lord. “Is this My servant that I called true, upright, blameless, and godly? Job . . . who do you think you are?”
