Job 19:25 – For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth.
Now after having been beaten up by his friends who should have been comforting him, Job expresses a higher hope and desire in which he finds his comfort. His comfort is not in the words of his 3 so-called friends, who is now passing judgment on him, but in his God.
For God has sent a Redeemer. And in that Redeemer, Job finds hope in a situation that looks hopeless. Have you ever been there before? To a place where all you had was hope and trust in was God? You could not turn to the left nor to the right, you could not go front or backwards? Have you ever been there? I have been there many times! Maybe not in Job’s condition, but I have been in many situations that appeared hopeless in my life.
In the midst of pain and suffering, Job, is confident that God is more merciful than his friends who have tried to console him with painful accusations.
Job direct his attention to our Mediator “Jesus Christ” and says “I know that my Redeemer liveth.” Job saw in the Spirit what his friends could not see. He saw Jesus, our Savior, coming to rescue him.
As Job speaks, he speaks as one who has already found that Mediator. He has found The One who is willing to stand up for him, The One who is willing to pay his ransom and deliver him. He has found The One who atones for sin, who delivers from bondage, the One who assures him of eternal blessedness in glory.
Nicole Mullen sings this song that rings true around the world today and forever! "My Redeemer Lives!
Job was sure of this one thing that I too am sure of and that is, regardless of what I may suffer or have to endure in this life, I know ‘MY REDEEMER LIVES”!
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for our Redeemer lives!
I love you all with the love of Christ.
