A brief history of Job – a prosperity gospel.

God prospers Job and puts a hedge around him so Satan cannot do Job any harm at all.

But Job still has fears, so keeps sacrificing – just in case his sons may have sinned. Then when disaster falls ‘what I FEARED has come upon me’. So despite God’s protection Job is living by fear not faith.

God agrees that Job is in Satan’s hands – note God doesn’t PUT Job there – Job’s fear did that. STILL God limits what Satan can do.

A few months or maybe a year or two of suffering ensue.

Then Job gets a revelation of God and ‘sees’ Him.

Then Job returns to further decades of prosperity again fully protected from Satan.

Now – can someone tell me how this is anything other than a message that God intends us to prosper – even a gospel of prosperity.
