The fool triumphs for a short time, perishes forever
Job 20:7 -
Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
Today's message comes from the disclosure of Zophar the Naamathite, one of Job's friends. Zophar speaks about wicket, foolish man. He says they existed right from the time man was made on earth. So we too should not be alarmed to see fools amongst us.
One very important point Zophar states in his disclosure, which the Lord wants us to know today; Zophar says fools are not always failures they do triumph but the triumph of the fool is short.
The Lord is telling us not to be worried about what is happen in this world. We see violence and insanity being spread by fools. We see them growing from country to country and they mean to be chocking peace and prosperity. They seem to be destroying every value of life that has been built. The Lord tells us today even though these fools seem to be triumphant, their time is short and they will perish forever. As the message tells us, we will search for them and will not find them; not only do we will not find them, but all the evil that they do will also cease to exist.
With this knowledge and our faith in God Who surely brings to pass what He says, let us have joy in us even when we see sorrow surrounding us. Let not this joy be lost for if it is lost, fear and sorrow will consume us even before the fool and their foolishness are consumed.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord, at theses times we see all things going to vanity. We see men behaving like animals and their foolishness destroying everything around us. But we know Lord, You spoke to us today these fools and their work will not last for long. Lord if You have spoken it has to come to pass, so we rejoice in your Word even though trouble surrounds us...
This prayer we make in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scriptures ]
4 Knowest thou not this of old, since man was placed upon earth,
5 That the triumphing of the wicked is short, and the joy of the hypocrite but for a moment?
6 Though his excellency mount up to the heavens, and his head reach unto the clouds;
7 Yet he shall perish for ever like his own dung: they which have seen him shall say, Where is he?
8 He shall fly away as a dream, and shall not be found: yea, he shall be chased away as a vision of the night.
9 The eye also which saw him shall see him no more; neither shall his place any more behold him.
