knowledge of Science is revealed
in the book of
Then the LORD answered Job
advance knowledge of science
is revealed unto Job by God
only to be understood
in modern times
He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
MODERN SCIENTIFIC METHOD APPLIED
The sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD,
and Satan came also among them.
Satan challenges God.
God accepted Satan's challenge and authorized Satan afflict Job, but not to kill him. After all of Job's afflictions and troubles, he had never blamed God nor cursed God.
Again the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
God again authorizes Satan to afflict Job, but this time more severely.
Job turned to his three so-called friends and had rounds of dialogue with each of them. Job had a final plea to all three of his friends, but his so-called friends were useless to him. They were all silent.
After all this, as recorded in the scriptures, Job never blamed God or cursed God for all of his afflictions.
Elihu, a stranger to Job, was angry with Job because he justified himself rather than God. He was angry also with the so-called three friends of Job who supplied no answers to Job and his afflictions. Job received no wisdom from his so-called friends who were of age, but yet Job received wisdom from Ehihu, although Job was much elder than he.
Job had no knowledge of Satan's challenge to God. Job had no knowledge that God had accepted Satan's challenge. Job had no knowledge that God had authorized Satan to afflict him.
Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth?
declare, if thou hast understanding.
Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest?
or who hath stretched the line upon it?
In chapters 38, 39, 40 and 41, Job is getting a lesson on the sovereignty of God, where the LORD God is basically asking Job,
Who do you think you are?
Job is getting a SCIENCE lesson from God.
The significance of and the scientific truth of the bible verse of Job 37:3 is revealed in a very recent discovery made in modern Astrophysics. In just this decade alone, astrophysicists have found that, for the first time, the cosmic rays originating galactic sources and beyond the galaxy are the direct causes for triggering of the lightning. Gamma-ray and X-ray bursts were detected nanoseconds just prior to the triggering of the lightning discharges.
This comparison of the several different Bible translations of this verse shows the true authenticity of the Holy Bible and its remarkable agreement with the recent Astrophysical findings.
Now let's compare Job 37:3 to a recent finding in Astrophysics.

SCIENCE NEWS, Jan 31, 03, X-Rays Abound When Lightning Strikes
EVERY SINCE THAT DAY JUST BEFORE THE FLOOD OF NOAH WHEN ACCORDING TO
GENESIS 7:10 "...THE FOUNTAINS OF THE GREAT DEEP BROKEN UP, AND THE WINDOW OF HEAVEN WERE OPEN..."
A CONSTANT RAIN OF HIGHLY INTENSE COSMIC RAYS HAS FALLEN UPON THE EARTH AND WILL CONTINUE TO FALL UPON THE EARTH
IF THE COSMIC RAYS WERE VISIBLE TO US, THEY MIGHT APPEAR TO US AS SUCH
The highly intense cosmic ray particles are constantly raining down upon the Earth, smashing into the nuclei of the upper atmosphere, producing many highly energetic fragments of radio carbon atoms. It is this radiation believed to be responsible for the reduced longevity of the humans on Earth immediately after the Genesis flood. Moreover, modern findings of the Space Agencies, reveal that interplanetary travel, beyond the protective shielding of the Earth's magnetic field and the Earth's biosphere, would expose the astronauts to severe life threatening cosmic radiation. Half the astronaut crew on a space ship would come down with terminal leukemia after years of deep space travel.
Modern research has found that about 100 particles per square inch strike our upper atmosphere every second and penetrate all living things on the Earth. For this reason, it is highly unlikely that any living organism could have survived a trip through deep space and be deposited on Earth from falling meteors are asteroids.
Hast thou entered into the springs of the sea?
or hast thou walked in the search of the depth?
Recently Discovered Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vent

It is most certain that God was speaking to Job about the recently discovered deep-sea hydrothermal vents that constantly release hot water springs at temperatures greater than 330 degrees Celsius or 626 degrees Fahrenheit. Around these vents strange life forms thrive on the heat of hot vents where there is virtually no sunlight.
Deep-Sea Water Currents: Veins of the Oceans
Found to have a significant effect on the Global Climate

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007)
The deep sea ocean floors have been a focal point in the recent times, having to do with the climate phenomenon, climate changes and global warming. The deep-sea veins of the ocean resemble very much the blood veins of living organisms and is believed to be directly connected with weather systems on planet Earth.
Job received many more SCIENCE lessons from God,
to list a few.
Job 38:18 Hast thou perceived the breadth of the earth? declare if thou knowest it all.
Job 38:22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
Job 38:24 By what way is the light parted, which scattereth the east wind upon the earth?
Job 38:25 Who hath divided a watercourse for the overflowing of waters, or a way for the lightning of thunder;
Job 38:26 To cause it to rain on the earth, where no man is; on the wilderness, wherein there is no man;
Job 38:30 The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen.
Job 38:31 Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?
Job 38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?
We shall continue with some of these soon.
Exercise: Read the Book of Job, all 42 chapters.
