Without a Bible and without a science book Job understood:
- What God required.
- That there was a redeemer and that redeemer would stand upon the earth to judge.
- More about science, creation, and physics than most of these professions know today.
How did Job know this?
The Bible tells us in Romans1.18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.
Job was a heathen in a far off land that was saved by general revelation. When you hear someone state that God is unfair if the unbeliever does not hear the Gospel story. Then ask how can God condemn that person…God must be unfair.
Paul tells us that all are without excuse. If Job could look around and into the Heavens and draw near to God, and understand that there is a God than Job was a wise man, and where does wisdom come from but God.
Job was a genius because he got his wisdom from God and his patience from faith.
