I am bemused by Job 40 and all the different views of it. What becomes clear when you look at the work of many, is that they have allowed the work of other people to cloud their views. Nobody points that out better than the Apologetics Press, who have done an excellent comparison of a mass of texts. I particularly like their short and concise conclusion, including their mention of fossils. [1] Big smiles.

It is imperative that when people look at a text they keep an open mind and heart.

This post was really inspired by the development of the post called 'RIGHT THIGH' that led to Job 40. Job 40 mentions the Lotus Flower and the Lotuses, and that is a very important part of what God is saying to Job. Not one link even mentioned the Lotus or its importance to the text being explained.

As far as Job 40 is concerned, the big question for the scholars as been who and what is Behemoth? [1]Thomas Aquinas equated it with the elephant, and as we know spiritually speaking, the elephant is symbolic of spiritual wisdom, the elephants have right of way. Some also say that in Arabic, Al behemoth is the whale, and in the bible the whale is the sign of Jonah that turned up in Israel in May 2010. The book of Luke also tells them that when the sign of Jonah turned up that would be the sign that the Queen of the South was here and judgement had begun. 
The South is the direction of the prophets. Hence, why we didn't agree with Harold Camping when he told everyone that judgement began in 2011. 

The respected biblical scholar, Adam Clarke, a contributor to Study Light mentions the words 'prolific' 'remarkable', 'agility', 'excelled in leaping'. 'Chief of the ways of God', 'No man or beast can overcome them'. In regard to the power that God as created. [2] 

Now who have that kind of power? The ELOHIM and what does the book of Revelation tell you? One would come that would be victorious and overcome. 

Its no coincidence either that this Job text as the number 40, that relates to Moses in mystical Judaism. Nostradamus also gave what is known as the Iris prophecy, it states that she would be hidden for 40 years, and after 40 years she could be seen everyday. 

I have viewed what the so-called 'gnostics' have to say and once again, I find no evidence to support what they are saying in the text itself. Its all based on conjecture and the same old myths and mythology and that doesn't say much for their gnosis does it. 

In Job 40, basically, Job is complaining to God and so the LORD responds to him. The LORD said to Job:

“Will the one who contends with the Almighty correct him? Let him who accuses God answer him!”

Then Job answered the LORD: “I am unworthy—how can I reply to you? I put my hand over my mouth. I spoke once, but I have no answer—  twice, but I will say no more.”

Then the LORD spoke to Job out of the storm: “Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. “Would you discredit my justice? Would you condemn me to justify yourself? 

Do you have an arm like God’s, and can your voice thunder like his? Then adorn yourself with glory and splendor, and clothe yourself in honor and majesty. Unleash the fury of your wrath,  look at all who are proud and bring them low, look at all who are proud and humble them, crush the wicked where they stand.  Bury them all in the dust together; shroud their faces in the grave. Then I myself will admit to you
that your own right hand can save you.

“Look at Behemoth, which I made along with you and which feeds on grass like an ox. What strength it has in its loins, what power in the muscles of its belly! Its tail sways like a cedar;  the sinews of its thighs are close-knit. Its bones are tubes of bronze,  its limbs like rods of iron. It ranks first among the works of God, yet its Maker can approach it with his sword. 

The hills bring it their produce, and all the wild animals play nearby. Under the lotus plants it lies,
hidden among the reeds in the marsh. 
The lotuses conceal it in their shadow; the poplars by the stream surround it. A raging river does not alarm it; it is secure, though the Jordan should surge against its mouth. Can anyone capture it by the eyes, or trap it and pierce its nose?

There are some key words here to be considered when looking at a text like this, scholars tend to look what they term the nature of an animal. However, from a mystical view its more about the action of the being rather than what it looks like, that determines its meaning in this context. Scholars tend to concentrate on appearances, and you have to be able to look at it differently. You have to be able to go beyond purely earthly realities, and that is exactly what the LORD is saying to Job. 
1. Voice and Storm responding to Job. 
2. Job is the accuser, this text is telling us that only those that feel 'unworthy' become accusers of the work of the LORD God. Hence, they have a lot more healing work to do on self and basically the LORD tells Job to man up. 
3. Now this point is crucial for the people to understand as I have also had to deal with a lot of complaints in recent years.  'Would you discredit my justice? 'Would you condemn me to justify yourself?'. 
4. Job is asked what he is capable of and whether he can do the same as the LORD. Then the LORD defends Behemoth.
5. Behemoth feeds on the grass e.g. is working at the grass roots with the poor. Strength in the loins is to do strong roots, with right thigh and spiritual direction. Power of the belly, is to do with divine shrine within, in Buddhism and martial arts, its to do with the energy work and the golden bowl is mentioned in the bible. 
6. Tail like a cedar, well as we know cedar trees don't have tails. Although every tree as a story to tell. The tail in the human body is also at the base of the spine. The fact that it sways means that it is flexible in comparison to Job. It also means that it moves like a tree and is sentient, it can sense the planetary energies. 
7. It ranks first in the works of God, because it is able to do everything asked of it, Job is unable to do or as not done. In other words Behemoth is working for God, and Job is not doing what can be accomplished. The scriptures also talk about the difference between the 'righteous and the wicked'. Behemoth is the manifestation of his justice and righteousness. However, at the same time the person is humble in heart, due to them being approachable by God when he speaks the truth to them. The sword is symbolic of truth and Behemoth accepts it. 

8. Hidden in the reeds in the marsh is reminiscent of Moses being hidden in the bullrushes. It is symbolic of the fact that they are a prophet, and they are hidden amongst the reeds where other lotus flowers are growing. The hills bring food and the wild animals play. In other words this person is amongst the community that includes spiritual people. 

9. They are concealed by the other Lotus flowers and their shadow. The shadows represent the followers of the Lotus flowers who are purposely keeping the righteous prophet of justice hidden from sight. Those Lotus flowers are also still healing their own shadows. Other trees surround it and they are also popular with the people. 

10. A raging river does not alarm it, it is secure. That is because it is dauntless and secure in their work for the LORD God. What does it mean to be 'captured by the eyes?' It means they are a person that cannot be flattered, seduced and nor do they play with the eyes of others. Hence, they could not be trapped, led by the nose, nor did they pierce their nose or any other part of their body. In other words, they are outside of the realms of how humanity usually behaves.  Nor did they pierce their nose or any other part of their body. They knew that body piercing is detrimental to their own flesh and energetic system. 

The only conclusion that one can come to, is that Behemoth was one of Job's friends, when Behemoth 
is introduced in the passage, the LORD tells Job that he made them both at the same time, and that Behemoth is doing good work that Job isn't. 

There is a nice play on words there with 'Be He Moth'. Do you remember the blue moth that we posted last year, it flew into a friends house last July, and was attracted to the same color cloth? 

Job's story is set in a place called Uz, in the east and he is a man of the earth. The first mention of the word Uz is in the book of Genesis and it is a person's name and it means "wooded". A son of Aram and Aram or Arameans = "exalted". 

What spiritual philosophy encompasses the explanation and energy work described above, is well known in the East for its Lotus Flowers? The Buddhist nations and India. 

Now Aram is also Iram, in the Qu'ran it speaks of a lost city, a city of thousand pillars, it mentions rocks carved out of the valley. As we know, Buddhist statues carved into rocks in Afganistan were destroyed in our life time. [3]

Is it a coincidence that I spent a year in Oz and my son's name is Jordan? 
If I receive any guidance on this I will update this post. 

ELIAKIM JOSEPH-SOPHIA with those little Lotus Feet
