Depression makes it tough to enjoy life. There is so much in life to be depressed about. Science of Salvation gives us hope…
Job was blameless, meaning no sin was found in him.
Job loved and cared about his kids. All of his children were killed.
He didn’t get angry when he heard the news, he fell down and worshipped God! God our almighty creator.
Job 1:8 – “And the Lord said to Satan, ‘Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?’”
Satan is our advisary “The Inquisitor” whom also was created by God.
So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.
Each time “The Inquisitor” comes, there is a new confrontation of opposites. What once was is continually being challenged by what now wants to be (The self centered ego). The Guides recently spoke with one woman about her experiences of extreme malaise and feelings of despondency. They told her:
“What you perceive as life force, ebbing from your body, is really the last remnant of your resistence that has been present within your family line for generations. It has been built into your character in a number of ways, some of which are still hidden from your view. You might say that what you are feeling (as disease) was downloaded into you, as a virus is injected into a laboratory animal, so that observations can be drawn about its effects (virulence) in the presence of gradually increasing vibratory frequencies. What?
Through Job’s trials, all is lost including his health, his wife even tells him to curse God and commit suicide, but he remains strong and faithful, “Through all this Job did not sin nor did he blame God.” (1:22). Job’s friends give him plenty of bad advice, in rounds of discussion. They mistakenly blame his sufferings on his personal sins rather than God testing and maturing Job. One of them was half-correct in that God wanted to humble him, but this was only a part of God’s test. In the end, Job answers God by saying, “I have declared that which I did not understand”. God then blessed Job with twice as much as he had before his trials began.
Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do good things happen to bad people? What is the purpose of suffering?
