Caution to students of God's Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Drake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God. 
May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

 Now here is our revised study of:


Chapter 39

"The animate creation. Wisdom manifested in the inward parts."

Job 39:1 "Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?"

God is asking Job; do you know the times of the pregnancy of the wild mountain goat, or the deer that runs in the wild? Do you know the exact hour and minute that each of these animals deliver their calves?

Job 39:2 "Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?"

Are you out there managing each of these animals to make sure that there are no complications with these wild animals? No, man can't manage any part of God wild kingdom, to keep it all in a natural order. When man enters into God's work, he messes it all up. When man pulled the panda bears out their natural habitat in China, and was going to breed them, these creatures almost became extinct.

Job 39:3 "They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows."

Through all the pain of delivering their young, the wild animals do well in seeing to the care of their young.

Job 39:4 "Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them."

When the young wild animals have grown to a mature age, they separate from their mother and move on to start their own lives in a new generation. They know within themselves how to seek out the corn, and feed themselves.

Job 39:5 "Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?"

God is asking Job, do you know what causes the wild ass that could be free, to unite into a band? Of course it is for their own protection from other wild animals? The implication given here is that God has given them the intelligence to band together for protection, but what about you?

Job 39:6 "Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings."

God is saying to Job, I put them out there on their own in the wilderness for their own protection.

Job 39:7 "He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver."

Who was the builder of cities? Of course it was the offspring of Cain, the Kenites, Satan's children. This is saying here that those animals that live out there in nature laugh at the creatures that have to bind themselves to a city for protection. Living in the filth and problems that comes when man builds his house upon house. This is saying, go out and talk to the wild animals and see if those animals even listen to you.

To bring this to reality, it is like going out to capture a herd of wild horses, and you have to do it on foot, your only tool being man's reasoning. You won't get anywhere near them. This is what this verse is implying.

Job 39:8 "The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green things."

The wild ass or horse isn't like man trying to store up things that they will never use, such as food, money and wealth, but the animal is satisfied to search the ranges eating and living off the green plant life that God has provide for it. I guess God is telling Job that only man is dumb enough to live in a city that is build by Cain's kids. The wild animals know better.

Job 39:9 "Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?"

The "Unicorn" is a wild ox, and God is asking Job, are you enough of a manager that you can make a domestic animal and train it to be of service to you? Can you train that wild ox to feed out of your corn crib, and rely on you for its food?

Job 39:10 "Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?"

Can you train that wild ox and put a harness on him, and train him to pull your plow?

Job 39:11 "Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt you leave thy labour to him?"

Once you have trained the wild ox, are you going to stand by him and help him do the work, or are you going to walk away and leave him to do all the work?

Job 39:12 "Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?"

Are you going to trust that wild ox that you have tamed and trained to do the harvest and bring the corn home and put it into your barn? These are all questions that are quite obvious, for there is no way that the wild ox can be trained to do the things and use the mental process that God has put into man. Of course man is going to have to do the work and lead the wild ox in all that he does. Father is telling us that the wild ox out on his own has more common sense than man in the wild. However when you put enough corn in your crib, and show that domestic animal where the food is, and manage him properly, the ox will help you bring in the seed. However if you are relying on the wild ox to do the things that are required of a man, than forget about bringing in a harvest. Farming with animals needs management.

While Job sat with his friends, Satan was laughing at them. They had everything that was necessary at their disposal, yet none of them could manage the facts that were at their side. God is asking Job, are you going to manage your life, or are you going to allow those hawks and wild animals do your managing for you? Satan will laugh at you and God will allow it, when you use no more intelligence than a man that turns his farming over to a wild ox. What kind of report is Satan taking back to the Father concerning your life?

Job 39:13 "Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?"

"Gavest thou" is not in the manuscripts, but was added by some scribe in the translation. This verse is so polluted that it just doesn't say what it is suppose to. This verse is asking you to look at the ostrich [there is no peacock in the Hebrew], look at her little stocking wings, she can't fly like the stork. Yet she still flaps here wings in all of her pride.

You might as well get use to it, for God is describing true Israel. Israel is a great big over grown ugly bird. We will see now that God will liken Israel to that dirty bird in her manners.

Job 39:14 "Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,"

In other words mother ostrich is allowing her own children to incubate in the sand. She doesn't take care for her own young as the wild animals spoken of above. She leaves them in the dirt to develop on their own, and train themselves as to the ways of life. She goes about flapping her little ugly wings and getting nowhere. Stop and look at our nation today, as she thinks that she is something, thinking she has the beauty of the peacock, when in reality she is nothing but a lazy bird.

Remember that this entire book is a type of example of the final generation, and Job is the type of the elect of our generation. The Israel spoken of is the natural seed of Jacob, which are the ten tribes of which the United States and Britain are the leaders of the true Israel nations of this generation. Take a close look at our nation, our cities and the people living in those cities, and how the young are cared for today. The average child is left on its own to strut and grow up, while mom and dad are doing their own fling with the rest of the world. Our nation is becoming a big overgrown ostrich with all her traits.

Job 39:15 "And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them."

What this is saying is that true Israel leaves their young to mix and carry on with the wild beasts of the field. They have no concern of their young's physical or spiritual well being, in fact they don't even tell their children who they are, so that they can apply God's Word to their lives properly. There is no one to lead them and teach them their identity, to help them find their way through life. There is no help to make their minds grow in the right direction, they are like this oversized bird with the ugly wings that can't fly in any direction. They just stumble around and cause their children serious problems. Is it any wonder that our nation is in the state that it is in today, with children killing kids, and their necessity to form gangs is needed just to survive in the cities.

Job 39:16 "She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear."

Why would God use this big ostrich as an example of Israel? When the ostrich is afraid, the first thing that she does is to stick her head in the sand to shut her mind off to the trouble around her. She leaves the rest of her body hanging out in the open to have all the world can take pot shots at her. Then anyone and everyone that comes along takes advantage of her, and this is what is happening to true Israel.

Satan's children, the Kenites that call themselves Jews, have mixed with brother Judah and they have come along and are plucking true Israel, the Christian nations, as they sits there with her head in the sand. Our nation as well as the rest of true Israel have their fannys hanging out, while our national leaders and the people guiding our people sit by with and allow it all to happen. The beasts of the field, the Kenites with the rest of the world, are stripping our nation as well as the other Christian nations clean, and we sit by as dumb as the old ostrich.

God is trying to open our eyes before it is too late, but He is going to allow it all to happen for it is written in His Word. Those sealed with the entire truth of God's Word will see the events of our day, and be able to relate them to the plan of God. Satan truly had a picnic sitting by and watching these friends of Job pick him apart, and blaming God for all that happened to him. Satan is also enjoying himself as he watches the stupidity that is going on through the traditions being taught with in God's houses today. Wake up, this is a lesson for us today, and everything that God warned Job of, He is also warning us of today.

People will not know the Antichrist, because they cannot tell the difference of Satan from Christ at his coming at the sixth trumpet. Just like a bunch of ostriches they are all planning to fly out of here with their skimpy wings, only also like the ostrich they will not fly anywhere. Just a bunch of dumb dirty birds ready to hide their heads in the sand, and close their minds to the truths of God's Word.

Job 39:17 "Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath He imparted to her understanding."

That poor big dumb bird hasn't even the desire to learn anything but where her next meal is coming from. Did God deprive the ostrich of wisdom? No, he allowed it to happen because that is it's nature. Thank God that there are some in this generation that do care for the wisdom of God, and the warnings that He has given us in His Word.

Job 39:18 "What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider."

God is telling Job that this ostrich is thinking she is flying so high and so fast, when she sees a man on horse back, she will actually out run the horse. The ostrich is that fast. That also is like our people, hurrying so fast to get to where they are going, and it doesn't matter the direction. Stop and look at TV and see the types of programs that are considered the most popular, for there is no wisdom coming from the tube. Then take a look at that big dumb bird with its short stubby wings. That is our nation and our people, along with the rest of the natural seed of Israel. Our people are allowing Satan and the rest of the wild beasts to feed us through their news channels, as well as the filth and murder that is common from all the other shows. Even the children's channels are giving off nothing but violence with cartoons to where what is done and said would not be allow by humans playing the animated roles. Mom and dad sit by with their heads in the sand and let it all hang out. That's our people today. If you are one of God's elect, be aware of Satan and his methods of operation. God is warning each of us.

Job 39:19 "Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?"

Why would anyone want to change the word horses "mane" in the Hebrew, to "thunder" in the English. (The influence of a Kenite scribe) The only reason is to confuse the reader. The question here is, have you seen the beauty and the strength of the horse as it is running?

Job 39:20 "Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible."

God is asking Job, can you take that beautiful animal and make him so afraid of you that he will actually tremble like the wings of a locust? If you have worked around horses you will understand this verse well.

Job 39:21 "He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men."
That horse that is in his full strength, and in full run is not afraid of anyone. Those of the elect, when they are at full strength of the beauty of God's full Word are not afraid of Satan or any of his wild beasts when we are in the valleys of this world. The horse just doesn't care for he is anxious, just as the elect are anxious to give out the truths of God's Word.

Job 39:22
"He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword."

The well trained horse that is going into battle turns neither to the right nor to the left when he is under a full charge. His mind is set on the battle and he knows what he is to do. There is not confusion in the horse's mind.

As you face the days ahead, and know that the time in preparation for Satan's coming is not far away, what is your mind set on? Are you easily turned from battle ahead, or are you fixed in your mind what the spiritual battle is all about. Are you aware of Satan's methods of operation, and are you ready for the coming of Satan and his hoards of fallen angels. Many today have given up and are willing to bury their spiritual heads in the sand, and let the one verse Charlies pamper them for that hour on Sunday morning, preparing them for a fly-away that will never come.

Job 39:23 "The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield."

The elect are trembling with eagerness for the battle ahead, just as the battle horse trembles with eagerness when the sound of the trumpet is given to charge the enemy. Are you ready to fight Satan? Do you have all of your spiritual armor on and in place, ready to attack at the coming of the false messiah?

Job 39:24 "He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet."

The sounding of the sixth trumpet is not far off for the first four trumpets have already sounded and the action of these trumpets have already taken place. The one world system has been a reality for over forty years, and the great mountain or nation has already gone into the sea of one worldism. We and the other Christian nations have already given our sovereignty of most local and national decisions over the one world system, and are standing by for the next trumpet to sound. Truth is being taken from the earth, and wormwood, and the lies of Satan are being given to the dominations of the houses of God, from their offices at the world council of churches.

According to Revelation 9, Satan has the power and authority to do what he is going to do at the fifth trumpet, and when he arrives he will carry out those deceptions at the sounding of the sixth trumpet. Have you prepared yourself for those days, or are you sitting back with your head in the sand? Satan's battle will be fierce and the rage will be intense against those that will not buckle under to Satan. Not only will the Kenites and fallen angels be out to deceive you, but the enemy will also be within your church, behind the pulpit, and from your own family.

Job 39:25 "He saith among the trumpets, `Ha, ha;' and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting."

God is asking you, are you that anxious to fight Satan in your daily life? The smell of battle is not far off today, and the captains of Satan's forces are already shouting out their orders to make the world ready for this spiritual battle.

Job 39:26 "Doth the hawk fly by the wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?"

Next time you see a hawk out there with her wings stretched out, and scanning the ground for her next meal, think about it. Is she doing her hunting with her wisdom, or with the Father's wisdom that was planted within her mind. We are to get into our place and start preparing ourselves for the time to come.

Job 39:27 "Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?

Keep in mind that the eagle is symbolic of the great nation that was to exist just before the final day. It is symbolic of our protector as given in Deuteronomy 32:9-12, from the song of Moses. It is the song that the overcomers will sing in the Millennium age. Can you tell an eagle just where to place her nest up in those high places?

Job 39:28 "She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place."

Job 39:29 "For thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off."

When the eagle has made her nest and is sitting on her nest she is always prepared for her enemy, for there is nothing that can sneak up on her. The eagle has eyes that can see very far off.

Job 39:30 "Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she."

Think of this in a spiritual sense. Where are the slain of these times just before Satan arrives for the great deception. Ezekiel 37 tells us of the great valley of dry bones, that when he [the teachers] speaks to those dry bones, meat comes on their bones, then the flesh and so on until spiritual life enters back into them. Those dry bones were spiritually dead to the truth of God's Word, but as the truth from God's Word enters into them, spiritual life enters into their minds. Ezekiel was told that within that valley of dead dry bones was the whole house of true Israel. So that eagle protects those that are coming back to life spiritually.

If it was not for this eagle protecting us spiritually, we as a nation would be in a far worse spiritual shape than what we are now.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.  We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
