Job: Satan in the meeting with God in heaven

I was asked the question about a month ago as to how satan was in the meeting in heaven in Job 1, when he has been cast out of heaven. Here is what the Holy Spirit revealed to me. All the () are my additions to what I was given about this, scripture is labeled.

Job 1:6 When the day came (doesn’t say it was that time, but a future time) for the heavenly beings to appear before the Lord, Satan was there among them. 7The Lord asked him, “What have you been (past tense) doing?” Satan answered, “I have been walking here and there, roaming round the earth.”

(This is a metaphor/mystery/parable of what the devil has been doing over time and not literal. Job could have possibly been a real person and the devil could have tested him literally (God gives us these stories in the mystery to help us see (spiritually and understand) what is and has been going on, so from what I can tell this seems like a witness to us of what would be going on until God cast the devil out of heaven in the end literally to earth.)

Satan met with God in the meeting because he has not yet been fully cast out of heaven. There are levels of heaven and he is in the third until the last age (which is the air of this world upper atmosphere possibly what we can see of space (which is referred to as the heavens) as the Bible also refers to angels as stars) until he is cast down to earth to reign as the (there are many antichrist) final anitchrist. The Bible is not written in a literal way, it is a mystery that the carnal mind cannot understand and only the Holy Spirit can reveal the answers to us. It’s written in symbology and parables. (i.e. clouds are “Crowds” or groups of people.; wheat and tares, the wheat are children of God tares children of the devil) It’s also not written in a strict order, things that are spoken of in the beginning (Genesis) did not necessarily happen at that moment. (i.e. Job is said to be the oldest book)

Revelation 12:7-12
Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, who fought back with his angels; 8but the dragon was defeated, and he and his angels were not allowed to stay in heaven any longer (so he is still in third heaven until the end times when God casts him literally to earth).

Dan 10.13-21(This speaks on the war in heaven.)
Dan 12.1 (Mt 24.21Mk 13.19Rev 7.14)
The angel wearing linen clothes said, “At that time the great angel Michael, who guards your people, will appear. Then there will be a time of troubles, the worst since nations first came into existence. When that time comes, all the people of your nation whose names are written in God’s book will be saved.
(Is 26.19Mt 25.46Jn 5.29)
Many of those who have already died will live again: some will enjoy eternal (for an age/or time Greek αἰώνιον/aionos) life, and some will suffer eternal (for an age/or time Greek: aionos) disgrace. 3The wise leaders will shine with all the brightness of the sky. And those who have taught many people to do what is right will shine like the stars forever (from the terms used in the Greek this literally means forever).”
Jude 9 (Michael and the devil warring or arguing over who would have the body of Moses.)

Gen 3.1 (this was the beginning of the war as satan came down and seduced Eve, he was not cast down yet) The huge dragon was thrown out — that ancient serpent, called the Devil, or Satan, that deceived the whole world. He was thrown down to earth, and all his angels with him.
Zech 3.1 In another vision the Lord showed me the High Priest Joshua standing before the angel of the Lord. And there beside Joshua stood Satan, ready to bring an accusation against him. (See he does this throughout the Bible and History (HIStory God’s story) Job gave us a summary of what the devil would be doing as the ages passed until the last age, our age.
2The angel of the Lord said to Satan, “May the Lord condemn you, Satan! May the Lord, who loves Jerusalem, condemn you. This man is like a stick snatched from the fire.”
3Joshua was standing there, wearing filthy clothes. 4The angel said to his heavenly attendants, “Take away the filthy clothes this man is wearing.” Then he said to Joshua, “I have taken away your sin (sin singular, what we are all born with) and will give you new clothes to wear.”He commanded the attendants to put a clean turban on Joshua’s head.
(Here is symology used this is a representation of what Jesus would do for the world. This “angel” was more than likely Jesus, as He alone is the only one who can take away our sin.)

Revelation 12:9
Then I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “Now God’s salvation has come! Now God has shown his power as King! Now his Messiah has shown his authority! For the one (satan) who stood before our God and accused our brothers and sisters day and night has been thrown out of heaven. 11Our brothers and sisters won the victory over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the truth which they proclaimed; and they were willing to give up their lives and die. 12And so be glad, you heavens, and all you that live there! But how terrible for the earth and the sea (false religious leaders/children of satan)! For the Devil has come down to you, and he is filled with rage, because he knows that he has only a little time left.”
(This is the last hour, the times which we are in now, so God cast him down to embody the one that will be the antichrist. There are many antichrist spirits that have been on the earth over the years, but the last will be the first just as God says of us.)

Sea – is usually a reference to peoples.
Wind – false doctrines, religions, religious orders of any kind. (i.e. I am not religious, I have a relationship with my Father who is in Heaven, through my Savior/Jesus who gives me life, and Holy Spirit/Teacher who give me truth/wisdom/God’s knowledge.)

In Mark all the verses in this chapter are parables, so even though this one is not titled as such in most translation, it is that same as the others, a parable. This is the mystery Jesus did not speak literally much; He mostly spoke in parables so that only those who are of God can be given the meanings through the Holy Spirit.

Mark 4:39 Jesus stood up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves (sea), “Be still!” The wind died down, and there was a great calm.
(Again this may have actually happened, but it is also a message to us that Jesus will rebuke false teachings, give peace to his people. He reiterates over and over throughout His Word that He will be victorious and we need to follow Him, because all else are false lies of the devil. He is the only One who will bring peace, He is the only Savior, and the only One who will stand in our place and take our sin.)

THE REWARDS OF FAITH AND HOSPITALITY. Rahab.

Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol. I – Clement of Rome – Chapter XII.

On account of her faith and hospitality, Rahab the harlot was saved. For when spies were sent by Joshua, the son of Nun, to Jericho, the king of the country ascertained that they were come to spy out their land, and sent men to seize them, in order that, when taken, they might be put to death. But the hospitable Rahab receiving them, concealed them on the roof of her house under some stalks of flax. And when the men sent by the king arrived and said “There came men unto thee who are to spy out our land; bring them forth, for so the king commands,” she answered them, “The two men whom ye seek came unto me, but quickly departed again and are gone,” thus not discovering the spies to them. Then she said to the men, “I know assuredly that the Lord your God hath given you this city, for the fear and dread of you have fallen on its inhabitants. When therefore ye shall have taken it, keep ye me and the house of my father in safety.” And they said to her, “It shall be as thou hast spoken to us. As soon, therefore, as thou knowest that we are at hand, thou shall gather all thy family under thy roof, and they shall be preserved, but all that are found outside of thy dwelling shall perish.” Moreover, they gave her a sign to this effect, that she should hang forth from her house a scarlet thread. And thus they made it manifest that redemption should flow through the blood of the Lord to all them that believe and hope in God. Ye see, beloved, that there was not only faith, but prophecy, in this woman.

Humanity sees Rahab as a harlot, but God saw her as a faithful child and part of His people. Seems the labels we put on others are but mere words, but the title we are given by God are beyond what some would consider mistakes or condemnation and is only from earthly carnal minded people. As we are not to judge others, lest we be judge in the same manner (Matthew 7:1-3), yet we label Rahab as a harlot.

Faith and hospitality are big things to God. As it is said, Faith can move mountains. Hospitality, though it usually doesn’t take much to be hospitable to another, as there are so many ways to do so, means a lot to God. He wants us to help each other along through this life and showing kindness is not hard, but so many people are so selfish they refuse to show others any kindness and feel they are better suited to give them a moral word or acknowledge their faults when they, themselves should be showing love and focused on being more like Christ. If you are more interested in finding fault in other and causing division amongst people, especially the body of Christ, you need to check your faith, and find your knees. True children, the true body of Christ do not cause division in the body.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, be kind to others, we are all walking through this life, we are all struggling at times, and we are all growing. A reflection of your heart and who you truly are inside comes out by how you are towards others. Remember to be hospitable and grow in your Faith and Relationship with Jesus each day.

Enoch and Jasher are Scripture

If you believe as I do that the scriptures are divinely inspired by God, God seems to be endorsing these two books. As we are told, in the mouth of two or three witnesses you can establish if a thing is true are not.

Jasher means (Hebrew) “upright”, true, just account

The name refers to the fact that the record, facts, and history are upright, correct, and thus trustworthy.

It is referenced in:

Joshua 10:13 So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself onb its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar.

2 Samuel 1:18 and he ordered that the people of Judah be taught this lament of the bow (it is written in the Book of Jashar):

2 Timothy 3:8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth.

Inferred here talking about Jannes and Jambres who opposed Moses. The only way Paul could have known this is through the book of Jasher.

Enoch was considered scripture and has been in and out of the Bible several times.

There are at least a hundred references in the New Testament that find precedence nowhere else in the Bible except the book of Enoch

  • Quoted by Jesus, Peter, and Jude
  • Widely known and read in the 1st Century
  • Viewed as Scripture by early Church Fathers
  • Still in Ethiopian Coptic Bible
  • Found in Dead Sea Scrolls

Enoch 1

  1. The word of the blessing of Enoch, how he blessed the elect and the righteous, who were to exist in the time of trouble [day of Tribulation]; rejecting all the wicked and ungodly. Enoch, a righteous man, who was (1) with God, answered and spoke, while his eyes were open, and while he saw a holy vision in the heavens. This the angels showed me. 2. From them I heard all things, and understood what I saw; that which will not take place in this generation, but in a generation which is to succeed at a distant period (also stated as remote [future]), on account of the elect.

These books together tell us more about the fallen angels which is needed for a time as we are living in the last generation. God has preserved these books for us.

Fallen Angels

We are told that 1/3 of the angels fell with Lucifer, other than that we don’t know much from the 66 books. We do know that the serpent Lucifer as his name has been translated. In Genesis 3:13-15 He deceived Adam and Eve and God said to the serpent, “Because you have done this, Cursed are you above all livestock and all wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel.”

You just read that as I did, and I have read it many times, but did you really notice that it said that the devil has offspring! The fallen angels came down and chose wives for themselves, they forced them to be with them, this was not an agreement with the women.

Pastors are taught that these angels which were called the sons of God in Genesis are, are the sons of Cain and the good ones are the sons of Seth. That is not correct. Cousins don’t produce 17’ to 36’ foot giants. These were fallen angels come down to take human women. The Amorites where known to start at about 35’.
