A Riddle – Can You Solve It?
The Lord has been helping me understand some issues of life. As I have said many times, I ask God questions, lots of questions. He always answers me. A breakthrough came on a topic I have been studying in God’s word.
Have you ever known that you knew something from God’s word and you know and understand what God is teaching but then one day God makes it clear why you believe it?
People believe all kinds of things. Most people believe they will go to heaven when they die. When you ask them why they believe that, they tell you because they have been a good person. Then they give you a list of good works or they list things they have never done.
When you tell them and show them from scripture, what they do or don’t do will not get them to heaven, most reject that. It is not you they are rejecting, it is Jesus and God’s word they are rejecting. So don’t take it personally.
You can speak about anyone and most people will not get upset and most people will converse with you about anyone. Except Jesus Christ. When you want to talk about Jesus Christ people say, that’s what you believe, or I never discuss religion, or they say, I don’t want to talk about it.
In my quest to fully understand a topic, God showed me a riddle. So I put forth the riddle to you. See if you can answer the riddle.
We know Satan attacked Job and his family, possessions and his health according to Job chapters 1 and 2. After Satan’s attacks, Job’s wife says, Job 2:9 KJV “Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.” Why did Job’s wife tell Job to curse God and die?
Did you ever ask, what would cursing God do? Would speaking words against God bring back his children? No. Would cursing God bring back his possessions? No. Would cursing God heal his body? No. So why would his wife tell him to curse God?
Until next time my friends.
