“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?” Job 1:9, 10

The story of Job is a very instructive account in many ways. It pulls back the curtain of how God http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bonnat02.jpgand Satan both interact concerning the affairs of men.

 

.

And one revelation from this most ancient book is how God puts a hedge (a wall) around the life of His faithful people, to prevent Satan and his fellow evil angels from breaking through. Yes, Job enjoyed God’s protection for many years, prior to his great trials.

JOB PROFITABLE FOR DOCTRINE

And so, this one aspect of the Book of Job, concerning God’s hedge about Job and all his household, becomes, “profitable for doctrine, confirmation, correction and instruction in righteousness”, that we might become, “perfect, thoroughly equipped unto all good works!” (2nd Timothy 3:16, 17)

.

In other words, this hedge that God had placed around faithful Job, is a picture of what God does for any and all His faithful followers! Yes, those who prayerfully and faithfully follow Jesus can expect that God has a wall of protection around them and their household.

A HEDGE IS NOW NEEDED MORE THAN EVER!

.

Now, the reason for even bringing up this subject is to address a problem within the household of God. You see, in this increasingly dangerous and evil world, it becomes imperative for parents to have a strong wall of protection around their household. Satan is on the march! He is coming for our children and grand-children. And he now has an arsenal of weaponry which he never before had: high-tech devices, television, clubs, sports, radio, sensual music, entertainment, games, drugs, and a vast array of inventions designed to deter our children and grand-children from becoming Christians!

.

Now every concerned parent wants to have God’s wall of protection around their households.

A HEDGE WITH A SWINGING GATE

.

.

But tragically, many parents have constructed a door, a gate into God’s wall of protection. In other words, so many of us dedicated parents and grand-parents have access to and from the world, via the gate which we have installed into God’s hedge around us!

.

Yes, most of us can easily go back and forth through this gate, whenever we wish. For instance, if we watch television, or listen to sensual music, then we have just left our wall of protection, and have entered back into the world. And if we allow our young children to watch television, or listen to sensual music, then we have allowed them access back into the world.

.

Or if we have secular friendships, we indeed have installed a gate in which we can easily go back and forth into the world. By violating God’s command to, “Come out from among them and be ye separate…” 2nd Corinthians 6:17, we now have a swinging door to and from the world.

GATE GIVES SATAN ACCESS TO OUR HOME

.

The great problem with all this is that the same gate that we travel through back and forth into the world, is the very same gate which Satan and his evil angels also freely use to gain access into our home!

.

And then it should not surprise us to discover that our spouse and children have little love for the things of Heaven! And so, it should not surprise us when the day comes that tragedy strikes one of our family members. After all, by allowing Satan free access via our swinging gate, we will eventually reap the whirlwind, as the saying goes.

.

GATE MUST BE REMOVED

.

And so, the whole point of today’s devotional is to encourage Christians to close up that http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:USMC-06831.jpggate of access, so that the Enemy of Souls can no longer have have access to our spouse and children. And grand-parents must likewise close up any breach in the wall of God’s protection around their own lives. Because the faithfulness of grand-parents will have a great influence upon their grown-up children as well as on their grand-children!

.

And it is by shunning the many selfish attractions and ungodly influences of this fallen world, and instead prayerfully filling my heart with the pure Word of Truth, that God will place that hedge of protection around my life.

“I (God) will tell you what I will do to My vineyard:

I will take away the hedge thereof,

and it shall be eaten up;

and break down the wall thereof,

and it shall be trodden down:”

MICHAEL, THE SOLDIER

.

.

Michael the Soldier, battles against the Dragon: And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.” Revelation 12:7, 8.

.

Contrary to popular opinion, Michael here represents Christ as He battles this dragon. This will be adequately proven in this article and in various other sections of this website. No, Christ is not merely an angel. Christ is very eternal God. But Christ is often represented as various entities, such as a rose, or a burning bush, as well as many others things in the Bible.
