Job 38:36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
Job 38:37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
Job 38:38 When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
Job 38:39 Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
Job 38:40 When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?
Job 38:41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

Introduction

To this point the only mention God has made of His sovereignty over wickedness is His allusion to the fact that He is sovereign over death and darkness in these verses:

Job 38:17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
Job 38:18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
Job 38:19 Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,

God is intent upon giving us the Truth, and the Truth is that we are, in and of ourselves, utterly insignificant and certainly in no place to question Him and His ways:

Isa 55:7 Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Isa 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isa 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isa 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
Rom 9:18 Therefore hath he mercy on whom he will have mercy, and whom he will he hardeneth.
Rom 9:19 Thou wilt say then unto me, Why doth he yet find fault? For who hath resisted his will?
Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?
Rom 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

The Truth is that the Potter does have power over the clay, and He can and does make it first a vessel of dishonor before He makes it a new vessel:

Jer 18:4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.

Job is now becoming aware of just how childish are the words he uttered so boldly in his carnal frustration with God and His ways:

Job 23:2 Even to day is my complaint bitter: my stroke is heavier than my groaning.
Job 23:3 Oh that I knew where I might find him! that I might come even to his seat!
Job 23:4 I would order my cause before him, and fill my mouth with arguments.
Job 23:5 I would know the words which he would answer me, and understand what he would say unto me.
Job 23:6 Will he plead against me with his great power? No; but he would put strength in me.

As Job is learning, the difference between wanting to “fill my mouth with arguments… even [ at] His seat” and actually being at His seat is this:

Job 40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,
Job 40:2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
Job 40:3 Then Job answered the LORD, and said,
Job 40:4 Behold, I am vile; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth.
Job 40:5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will proceed no further.

But God has not yet asked these questions of us, of whom Job is but a type and shadow. At this point He is still instructing us with His humbling questions:

Job 38:36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
Job 38:37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,

The Truth is that Christ must dwell within us before any of us are given “wisdom in the inward parts”. It requires the mind of Christ within us to be “given understanding to [ our] heart”.
It also takes having Christ within us to even understand the question: “who can number the clouds in wisdom?” It takes the mind of Christ within the body of Christ to “stay the bottles of heaven”, and to cause it not to rain upon the earth. “Staying the bottles of heaven” is just as much a function of God’s ‘clouds’ with which He “judges the people” as is the sending of rain “to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth”. It is He who is “work[ ing] all things after the counsel of His own will” (Eph 1:11).
Here is how “the bottles of heaven” were stayed by Elijah:

1Ki 17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
Jas 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

Here is how the bottles of heaven are stayed in the New Testament:

Mat 18:18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

A better translation reveals that the things we pray for must first have been bound or loosed in the heavens:

Mat 18:18 Truly I say to you, however many things ye may bind on the earth will be things that are bound in heaven, and however many things ye may loose on the earth will be things that that are loosed in heaven. (ACV)

So when the Lord asks us…:

Job 38:25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
Job 38:26 To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
Job 38:27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?

… We know that only the Lord can cause it to rain on the earth, and when the Lord asks us “who can stay the bottles of heaven?”, we know that this too, is only done by Him and by His Word, by which we must live.
When “the bottles of heaven” are stayed by God’s Word, we come to know very dry times in our lives, and our hearts become hardened against God and His Word:

Job 38:38 When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?

These are the days of spiritual famine which symbolize a drought of God’s Word and the understanding of His Word in our lives. Here is how God’s word expresses what happens when “the bottles of heaven” are stayed:

Amo 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

This is a necessary famine which must precede the day when that famine is broken by the pouring out of the Words of life which come to us only after we have starved our old man to death and have destroyed all the false prophets and false doctrines which have brought us to this point.
As we read this story of Elijah, let’s keep in mind the fact that this was all, of necessity, preceded by a prolonged famine in the land:

1Ki 17:1 And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel liveth, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.
1Ki 18:1 And it came to pass after many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.
1Ki 18:2 And Elijah went to shew himself unto Ahab. And there was a sore famine in Samaria.

It was the Lord who told Elijah when this drought would start, and it was God who told Elijah when this drought would come to an end. It is also God who reveals to us that this time of famine causes all the false doctrines and false prophets who have been occupying our land to be exposed for who and what they are:

1Ki 18:17 And it came to pass, when Ahab saw Elijah, that Ahab said unto him, Art thou he that troubleth Israel?
1Ki 18:18 And he answered, I have not troubled Israel; but thou, and thy father’s house, in that ye have forsaken the commandments of the LORD, and thou hast followed Baalim.
1Ki 18:19 Now therefore send, and gather to me all Israel unto mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, which eat at Jezebel’s table.
1Ki 18:20 So Ahab sent unto all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together unto mount Carmel.
1Ki 18:21 And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the LORD be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people answered him not a word.
1Ki 18:22 Then said Elijah unto the people, I, even I only, remain a prophet of the LORD; but Baal’s prophets are four hundred and fifty men.
1Ki 18:23 Let them therefore give us two bullocks; and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under:
1Ki 18:24 And call ye on the name of your gods, and I will call on the name of the LORD: and the God that answereth by fire, let him be God. And all the people answered and said, It is well spoken.
1Ki 18:25 And Elijah said unto the prophets of Baal, Choose you one bullock for yourselves, and dress it first; for ye are many; and call on the name of your gods, but put no fire under.
1Ki 18:26 And they took the bullock which was given them, and they dressed it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even until noon, saying, O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered. And they leaped upon the altar which was made.
1Ki 18:27 And it came to pass at noon, that Elijah mocked them, and said, Cry aloud: for he is a god; either he is talking, or he is pursuing, or he is in a journey, or peradventure he sleepeth, and must be awaked.
1Ki 18:28 And they cried aloud, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till the blood gushed out upon them.
1Ki 18:29 And it came to pass, when midday was past, and they prophesied until the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that there was neither voice, nor any to answer, nor any that regarded.
1Ki 18:30 And Elijah said unto all the people, Come near unto me. And all the people came near unto him. And he repaired the altar of the LORD that was broken down.
1Ki 18:31 And Elijah took twelve stones, according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, unto whom the word of the LORD came, saying, Israel shall be thy name:
1Ki 18:32 And with the stones he built an altar in the name of the LORD: and he made a trench about the altar, as great as would contain two measures of seed.
1Ki 18:33 And he put the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid him on the wood, and said, Fill four barrels with water, and pour it on the burnt sacrifice, and on the wood.
1Ki 18:34 And he said, Do it the second time. And they did it the second time. And he said, Do it the third time. And they did it the third time.
1Ki 18:35 And the water ran round about the altar; and he filled the trench also with water.
1Ki 18:36 And it came to pass at the time of the offering of the evening sacrifice, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, LORD God of Abraham, Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel, and that I am thy servant, and that I have done all these things at thy word.
1Ki 18:37 Hear me, O LORD, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the LORD God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again.
1Ki 18:38 Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench.
1Ki 18:39 And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The LORD, he is the God; the LORD, he is the God.
1Ki 18:40 And Elijah said unto them, Take the prophets of Baal; let not one of them escape. And they took them: and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there.

The death of all of our false prophets will be at the hearing to the Truth, which will always drive out the darkness of all the lies of those false prophets. Here is how we slay the prophets of Baal today:

1Jn 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

But it is clear that the ability to “try the spirits to see whether they are of God” and our deliverance from the prophets of Baal, comes to us only after we have experienced a time of great drought, which causes us to cry out to God for relief from that drought and famine:

Psa 107:2 Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Psa 107:3 And gathered them out of the lands, from the east, and from the west, from the north, and from the south.
Psa 107:4 They wandered in the wilderness in a solitary way; they found no city to dwell in.
Psa 107:5 Hungry and thirsty, their soul fainted in them.
Psa 107:6 Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses.

King David, in this same Psalm, reiterates the fact that it is God Himself who both stays the bottles of heaven and sends His clouds to “drop and distil upon man abundantly”.

Job 36:28 Which the clouds do drop and distil upon man abundantly.
Job 38:34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
Psa 107:33 He turneth rivers into a wilderness, and the watersprings into dry ground;
Psa 107:34 A fruitful land into barrenness, for the wickedness of them that dwell therein.
Psa 107:35 He turneth the wilderness into a standing water, and dry ground into watersprings.

We can do none of these things of ourselves. We cannot cause a famine nor can we “fill the appetite of the young lions”. This too, is a work which only our Lord can accomplish:

Job 38:39 Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
Job 38:40 When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?

But the fact that God asks this question of us shows that he does not deny that the famine of Elijah, and all famines, physical and spiritual, are his work and that it is He who feeds the young lions who devour all they are given to devour. What the Lord is telling us is that He gives the adversary the flesh of “the prey for the lion”.
Peter tells us the same thing:

1Pe 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

To drive home the fact that His sovereignty extends to all evil, our Lord asks:

Job 38:41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

We know that a raven is an unclean bird.

Lev 11:13 And these are they which ye shall have in abomination among the fowls; they shall not be eaten, they are an abomination: the eagle, and the ossifrage, and the ospray,
Lev 11:14 And the vulture, and the kite after his kind;
Lev 11:15 Every raven after his kind;

Ravens are famous for eating seed as soon as it is sown. Here are Christ’s own words concerning the fowl who devour His people as soon as they hear His Word:

Mat 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
Mat 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:

Christ explains what He means by this parable:

Mat 13:18 Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower.
Mat 13:19 When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side.

The means by which “the fowls of the heaven… devour them up” is the same as it was in the garden of Eden. “The fowls of the heaven” are “the wicked one”, who twists the Word of God into words he knows will appeal to the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life within our flesh. So the way the seed of the word is devoured up is by replacing the Truth with lies which appeal to our flesh and our pride, and what God is telling us through Job is that “the law of sin in our members”, which “law” He has placed there, “provides for the raven his food”.
Here is the message of Job 38:41 in the New Testament:

Rom 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Rom 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.
Rom 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Rom 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Rom 7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
Rom 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
Rom 7:23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

“The law of sin which is in my members” is not the work of “the wicked one”, and God wants Job and He wants us to know that. So who gives us this “law of sin in [ our] members”? Here is what the scriptures tell us from Genesis to Revelation:

Pro 16:4 The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.
Isa 45:7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.
Isa 63:17 O LORD, why hast thou made us to err from thy ways, and hardened our heart from thy fear? Return for thy servants’ sake, the tribes of thine inheritance.
Jas 4:12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?

If we are not to even judge our brothers in Adam, who are we to judge our own Maker?

Rom 9:20 Nay but, O man, who art thou that repliest against God? Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou made me thus?

So the death and destruction of our old Job, our “old man”, is a predestined certainty, but it is all for a very good end as the apostle reveals:

Rom 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
Rom 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

So all of Job’s suffering merely typifies the suffering which all men must endure for the sake of the death and destruction of our old man and through that death getting us to the predestined end product of what God is working in the life of every man who has ever lived:

1Co 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
Php 4:12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Col 1:22 In the body of his flesh [ You and me, Eph 5:20] through death, to present you holy and unblameable and unreproveable in his sight:
Heb 2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.
Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

This 30th verse of Eph 5 does not say ‘We are members of His spiritual body’, although that is true. What it does say is “For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones”, just as He presented Himself in various forms of “flesh and bone” after His resurrection”

Mar 16:12 After that he appeared in another form unto two of them, as they walked, and went into the country.

So this is what our Lord is telling Job, and through Job, He is telling us. It is through “fill[ ing] the appetite of the young lions, when they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait, [ and by] provid[ ing] for the raven his food when his young ones cry unto God”, that we too, as “His flesh and His bone [ must] die daily (1Co 15:31), [ be] crucified with Him (Gal 2:20)… present our bodies a living sacrifice (Rom 12:1), [ to be] buried with Him in baptism into death: that like as Christ was delivered up to die, and was then raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”.

Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

In God’s own time, Job, and we through Job, will learn that the cross of Christ is the good news of the kingdom of God within us. We will come to rejoice in the fact that our sufferings are “fill[ ing] up in [ our] bodies what is behind of the afflictions of Christ”, knowing that just like Christ, our afflictions are also “for His body’s sake which is the church”. We will be “happy [ to] endure” those sufferings, knowing the “tender mercy” they portend for us.

Col 1:24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body’s sake, which is the church:
Jas 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

Our “afflictions are offered as a “living sacrifice”, as the scapegoat of Lev 16, and our sufferings are just as much “for His body’s sake” as were His sufferings.

Lev 16:8 And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat.
Lev 16:9 And Aaron shall bring the goat upon which the LORD’S lot fell, and offer him for a sin offering.
Lev 16:10 But the goat, on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat, shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make an atonement with him [ the Lord’s goat], and to let him go for a scapegoat into the wilderness.
Rom 12:1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

“The patience of Job” is for a very good and worthy purpose:

Jas 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Jas 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
Jas 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

What God is telling us through Job’s experience is that He has placed the stars in the heavens, He sends clouds to rain upon the earth, He sends times of plenty and times of famine, He feeds both the good and the evil, He sends His rain upon both, and even creates both the good and the evil, and He does it all “for the generation to come…[ and] for [ our] sakes”, to bring us to Himself, where, in His time, there will never again be any need for pain or tears.

Psa 102:18 This shall be written for the generation to come: and the people which shall be created shall praise the LORD.
Rom 8:18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
1Co 3:21 Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
1Co 3:22 Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours;
2Co 4:15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
2Co 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2Co 4:18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Lord willing, you and I are “the generation to come” to which King David refers and of which Peter writes these words:

1Pe 1:9 Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
1Pe 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pe 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
1Pe 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
1Pe 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

This is our reward if and when we are given “the patience of Job” and are granted to “endure to the end”:

Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Mat 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.
Jas 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

In our next study we will continue to reason with the Lord concerning His sovereign work even with all the evil that is in this world. Here is how He will continue to reason with us:

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?
Job 39:2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
Job 39:3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.
Job 39:4 Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.
Job 39:5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?
Job 39:6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.
Job 39:7 He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.
Job 39:8 The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.
Job 39:9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
Job 39:10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
Job 39:11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?
Job 39:12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
