Stranger cites Job 38:22-36:
"Have you entered into the storehouses of snow, or do you see even the storehouses of hail. Which I have kept back for the time of distress, For the day of fight and war?
Where now is the way by which the light distributes itself, [And] the east wind scatters about upon the Earth? Who has divided a channel for the flood and a way for the thunderous storm cloud. To make it rain upon the land where there is no man [Upon] the wilderness in which there is no earthling man."
One of the things I always greatly appreciate when someone chooses to highlight or focus in on merely one or two scriptures is how it reminds me of one of the very important messages being conveyed to us in accounts like the Lord's prayer in Matthew Chapter six or even the prophetic drama of what would happen if or when the ancient Israelites would try to gather up more of the "manna" off the ground that they could actually eat for that specific day when they found themselves in the "wilderness." We might recall that whatever was nor eaten in that same day would turn into worms overnight.
Did we ever actually stop to prayerfully ponder also the reason for the specific choice of words found there in Matthew 6:11 when Jesus commands us to prayerfully request not simply spiritual "bread" from our heavenly father, but more specifically our "bread for THIS DAY?"
The scripture here in Job 38 is actually another great example of why we are being instructed by Jehovah in this particular regard. You see not only is it ALWAYS the case with the holy scriptures that they are jam packed with deeper hidden meanings or "hidden treasures" that we could refer to as symbolic spiritual language, but the humble, loving, prayerful and persistent APPROACH to them that is commanded us by Jehovah will move him to grant us the holy spirit that is required for his anointed ones to DECRYPT their "carefully concealed sacred secrets." (Pr 2:4) (Mt 7:7-11 13:10-13) (Col 2:3)
Yes I realize it likely appears as contradictory on my part that my posts often contain even MANY scriptural citations, but just as demonstrated for us with even ENTIRE BOOKS of the Bible such as the book of Hebrews, where things begin getting wordy is when it comes to actually EXPLAINING and scripturally VERIFYING what is often being conveyed in MERELY one or two scriptures.
The scriptural passages that Stranger decided to cite here are not only VERY fitting for this particular Bible topic, but a careful and prayerful analysis of them might very well reveal exactly why this is the case. Would anyone care to share some thoughts regarding at least one or two deeper meanings that are at least potentially being conveyed here in these passages, and why this reasoning might be justified with things like additional scriptural references?
