Has your study in Job ever caused you to wonder why it took an entire book for God to tell you about His experience with Job and Satan? Along with Himself, Job and Satan form a triangle that collectability delivers God’s Hidden Message to you and when you visualize yourself taking Job’s place in this triangle, you receive it.
Job 1:7 KJV sets the stage for you to receive this message as while talking to Satan in Heaven, God reaches the point of asking him where he has been:
And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
Satan’s “to and fro in the earth” response leads to Job 1:8 KJV and another question from God:
“Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man?”
Satan, knowing that God is boasting of His servant Job, responds in Job 1:9-10 KJV:
Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?  Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.
Here Satan is trying to convince God that Job’s loyalty is entirely due to the fact that He has built a protective hedge about him and that if it were to be lifted, he could prove his point.
Recognizing that Job’s devotion is being questioned, God grants Satan access to him. Giving him authority and power, Job 1:12 KJV shows God turning Satan loose on Job and it is this access to Job that sets the stage for you to receive God’s Hidden Message.
And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord.
Put not forth thine hand meant that Satan could not kill Job but other than that, Job, Job’s family and all that he owned became a target for Satan.
Job, while losing his children, his wealth and his health, remained faithful to God and with his body covered with boils, Job 2:9 KJV shows his wife attacking:
Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.
Does Satan’s attempt to use Job’s family members to get him to curse God lead you to believe that his evil spirit may be using one of your family members to test you?
