Messenger 4: Your sons and daughters were eating
and drinking wine at there eldest brothers house.
There came a great wind from the direction of the
wilderness and totally destroyed the house and it
killed all of them. I am the only one that escaped
to inform you.
Job rose, tore his mantle, shaved his head and fell
down to the ground to worship.
Job: "Naked I came out of my mothers womb and
naked I shall return. The Elohim gave and the Elohim
took away. Blessed be the name of the Elohim".
During this entire episode Job did not sin or think
hard of the Elohim.
Heylel turned himself from side to side as one fit
to be tied. And all his leading spirits said not, but
watched. Finally he laughed and they laughed too.
Heylel: Do you realize We just got Eloi to go along
with destroying his favorite. The idiot still trusted
Elohim, but like i've always said the man is all about
self. Now energize yourselves because it is still in
our hands, and I will open his eyes yet.
The others became excited again. Heylel and his team
went about promoting the idea that this happened
to Job because he is not pleasing to God. Nor were
his children. Many of his relatives and friends left off
associating with him. Even the children of foul men
found him in contempt. People had for so long held
him as the top and the first of helpers and advisors
by now, but he must be a sinner so awful things come
upon him, and his seed.
Time passed. Jobs grief remained.
END OF DAYS BOB TO COUNSEL
Bob: "I must find Ted Talbert he said" as he looked
through his rolodex. "Here it is. I hope he has the same
number," as he called the cell phone." Disconnected
Remember the last time they talked he looked into his
wallet and there was a home number. He took a deep
breath and dialed the number.
Ted: "Hello this is Ted".
Bob: "Hi Ted, this is Bob".
Ted: "Oh I would know that voice anywhere. What do I
owe this occasion. I would have thought you would have
come over to my building over the last couple of weeks.
I figured that you would have needed company after
dealing with my dad".
He laughed lightly.
Bob: "Ted please hold on a moment. I could indeed use a
good laugh. But I'm afraid this is not a laughing matter
this is about your dad".
