    Questions, questions, questions (Job 38, 39)

    Job is perhaps the oldest book in the Bible, thought to have been written before the books of Moses. The book of Job deals with fundamental questions. It is not written in the style of other books and is written in the form of a play. This does not detract from the fundamental truths that are contained in the book. Towards the end of the Book of Job, God asks Job a series of questions; 60 questions no less. How would you answer all sixty questions?

    I could say; "go read Job 38 to Job 40 verse 1, but who will? To save you the trouble, I have copied the verses and pasted below. You can see all the questions God asks Job. You can see all the things God is able to do which science is searching for answers. God is able to go the be bounds where science cannot get to. For example; God can go to the edge of space where light has not got to (Job 38; 19,20). How amazing is that? God can go to the depths of the sea and even the center of the earth. God knows what is at the center of the atom and how it is made and how the stars were made? Who can do all that? Science has not found the answers, but thinks it can.

    Science does not know what it does not know. Some things will always remain a secret and those things belong to God. The things which man can find out belong to man. All science is doing is actually showing the greatness of God's creation and trying to find out; how did God do that?. The age of the universe is irrelevant compared to understanding the mechanisms involved in creation. Stretch or compress time, time is unimportant. The questions remain; how did it happen?

    If DNA is the basic code for all living forms, then it is hardly surprising that similarities in code will be found among all the species. A leg is a leg but there is massive variety of legs. The four base-pairs GCAT which link the DNA molecule and form the base-pair sequences of millions of characters in length go to show the complexity of each different type of leg, cell, etc. How to get from one type or leg to another requires understanding of ALL the genetic code relating to legs. All the different cells which make up the different organs in the body are programmed by the genetic code within the genome. How long will it take to understand each part of the human genome which makes the individual parts of the human body?

    Adding up all the DNA base-pairs in all 23 chromosomes of the human cell comes to 2,846,443,360 (approximately 2.846 x 109)
    Questions about DNA are not the type of questions God would ask Job. The questions God asks Job are simpler than that.

    First of all, understanding the the questions God asked of Job first takes time. This becomes obvious as you read the questions. Not only does the figurative language used by God have to be taken into account, also the style of the language at the time of the translators when the King James Version of the Bible was compiled.

    In all, there are 60 questions, see how you get on as you answer God's questions. "Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me".
    The challenge goes out to those who reprove God as stated in the very last verse

    38:1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
    2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
    3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
    4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.
    5 Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it?
    6 Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof;
    7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?
    8 Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?
    9 When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddlingband for it,
    10 And brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors,
    11 And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?
    12 Hast thou commanded the morning since thy days; and caused the dayspring to know his place;
    13 That it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it?
    14 It is turned as clay to the seal; and they stand as a garment.
    15 And from the wicked their light is withholden, and the high arm shall be broken.
    16 Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea? or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
    17 Have the gates of death been opened unto thee? or hast thou seen the doors of the shadow of death?
    18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
    19 Where is the way where light dwelleth? and as for darkness, where is the place thereof,
    20 That thou shouldest take it to the bound thereof, and that thou shouldest know the paths to the house thereof?
    21 Knowest thou it, because thou wast then born? or because the number of thy days is great?
    22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
    23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?
    24 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
    25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
    26 To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
    27 To satisfy the desolate and waste ground; and to cause the bud of the tender herb to spring forth?
    28 Hath the rain a father? or who hath begotten the drops of dew?
    29 Out of whose womb came the ice? and the hoary frost of heaven, who hath gendered it?
    30 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
    31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
    32 Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth in his season? or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons?
    33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
    34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee?
    35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are?
    36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart?
    37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
    38 When the dust groweth into hardness, and the clods cleave fast together?
    39 Wilt thou hunt the prey for the lion? or fill the appetite of the young lions,
    40 When they couch in their dens, and abide in the covert to lie in wait?
    41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.
    39:1 Knowest thou the time when the wild goats of the rock bring forth? or canst thou mark when the hinds do calve?
    2 Canst thou number the months that they fulfil? or knowest thou the time when they bring forth?
    3 They bow themselves, they bring forth their young ones, they cast out their sorrows.
    4 Their young ones are in good liking, they grow up with corn; they go forth, and return not unto them.
    5 Who hath sent out the wild ass free? or who hath loosed the bands of the wild ass?
    6 Whose house I have made the wilderness, and the barren land his dwellings.
    7 He scorneth the multitude of the city, neither regardeth he the crying of the driver.
    8 The range of the mountains is his pasture, and he searcheth after every green thing.
    9 Will the unicorn be willing to serve thee, or abide by thy crib?
    10 Canst thou bind the unicorn with his band in the furrow? or will he harrow the valleys after thee?
    11 Wilt thou trust him, because his strength is great? or wilt thou leave thy labour to him?
    12 Wilt thou believe him, that he will bring home thy seed, and gather it into thy barn?
    13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?
    14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,
    15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.
    16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not hers: her labour is in vain without fear;
    17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.
    18 What time she lifteth up herself on high, she scorneth the horse and his rider.
    19 Hast thou given the horse strength? hast thou clothed his neck with thunder?
    20 Canst thou make him afraid as a grasshopper? the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
    21 He paweth in the valley, and rejoiceth in his strength: he goeth on to meet the armed men.
    22 He mocketh at fear, and is not affrighted; neither turneth he back from the sword.
    23 The quiver rattleth against him, the glittering spear and the shield.
    24 He swalloweth the ground with fierceness and rage: neither believeth he that it is the sound of the trumpet.
    25 He saith among the trumpets, Ha, ha; and he smelleth the battle afar off, the thunder of the captains, and the shouting.
    26 Doth the hawk fly by thy wisdom, and stretch her wings toward the south?
    27 Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high?
    28 She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place.
    29 From thence she seeketh the prey, and her eyes behold afar off.
    30 Her young ones also suck up blood: and where the slain are, there is she.
    40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,
    2 Shall he that contendeth with the Almighty instruct him
    ? he that reproveth God, let him answer it.
