After all Job suffers, he protests and finally questions God. God responds, “Who is this who obscures My counsel with ignorant words? Get ready to answer Me like a man; when I question you, you will inform Me. Where were you when I established the earth? Tell Me if you have understanding.” (Job 38: 2 – 4)
Once Job hears God’s great argument, he recognizes that God “can do anything and no plan of [God’s] can be thwarted.” Job says to God, “You asked, ‘Who is this who conceals My counsel with ignorance?” Then, Job confesses, “Surely I spoke about things I did not understand, things too wonderful for me to know.” (Job 42: 1 – 3)
Once Job understands that he does not understand and knows that he does not know, then he responds appropriately to God, “I had heard rumors about You, but now my eyes have seen You. Therefore I take back my words and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job 42: 5 – 6)
Once we realize that we know nothing, have nothing; then we are able to repent and “know [our] living Redeemer,” Jesus Christ. We will see Him in our flesh, standing as the Last One.
