I know that my Redeemer lives.

Job 19:25  For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: 

Incredible words from Job in the very depths of his torment. He has now lost any hope in restoration in this world. And so, his eyes turn towards the latter days and the world to come. Surely Job speaks prophetically when he announces that he knows his redeemer lives and that in the last days He shall stand upon the earth. After Job’s flesh is destroyed, he declares that in his flesh he shall see God! We now know that our bodies shall be redeemed, Job did not know that, only by the Spirit. His heart yearned within him for such a time as this where he shall see His redeemer. He even cries out “oh that my words were written, oh that they were inscribed in a book, engraved upon a Rock with an iron pen and lead, forever. Job could not possibly know that this is exactly what would come to pass.

In the very depths of his torment, Job now truly sees. He sees the fleeting nature of this life and yearns for the life to come. He understands that redemption does not mean to be restored to his former glory, but that redemption is to be found in God alone. What does Job want above all things? Not the things that he has lost, but rather, to speak to God. To fellowship with God. To walk with God and to talk with God and to be redeemed by God. He knows that His redeemer lives. Despite what was happening to him, despite the loss of all things, despite being despised by everyone, He knows that His redeemer lives and he desires, above all things, to speak to Him. Brothers and sisters, what do you desire most in your life?  Is it to be found in Him? Job was so sure about what he was about to say that he wanted the words to be written in a book. And, lo and behold, that is exactly what God did. Job declared God to be His redeemer. He was declaring that He had standing with God and that standing meant that ” I shall see God.” We have the same standing!
