We need to understand how Satan is deceiving and controlling, not only the lives of individuals, but of churches and nations of the world. In a previous study we shared about "Leviathan" the king over all the children of pride. Now we are going to study his counterpart Behemoth, Self-Righteousness, Rebellion and Deception.

 ).
Today we aregoing to talk about his counterpart Behemoth,
 Self-Righteousness, Rebellion and Deception.
 All scripture quoted is taken from KJV unless otherwise stated.This study will focus on the attacks of Behemoth on our individual lives,physically and mentally, which affects us spiritually. We will continue with afollow up in another study of both Leviathan and Behemoth’s deadly attacks onthe church and the world. We will expose who they really are in Bible prophecy. We need to learn from Job’s experience so not to repeat his mistakes of pride,self-righteousness and a rebellious attitude, but to have a humble, submissivespirit towards our Creator. We need to understand how 
Satan is deceiving andcontrolling, not only the lives of individuals, but of churches andnations of the world
. THIS MEANS YOU AND ME AND OUR FAMILIES!!Praise God He has not left us in the dark but has revealed the battle plan of theenemy, the great dragon!Continuing with the story of Job. In his pain and distress, and through his own wisdom he became rebellious, self-righteous and justified himself, claiming God was unjust in his dealings with him. Job desired to have an audience with God.
 Job 31:35  
Oh that one would hear me! behold, my desire is, that the Almighty would answer me..
. Job 31:37  
 I would declare unto him the number of my steps; as a prince would I go near unto him.
 Job 32:1 So these three men ceased to answer Job, because
he was righteousin his own eyes.
 Job 32:2Then was kindled the wrath of Elihu ... against Job ...because
he justified himself rather than God.
 Job 32:3Also against his three friends was his(Job)wrath kindled, because they had found no answer, and 
yet had condemned Job
. Job 34:5 (Elihu speaking) "For Job hath said 
 
,
 I am righteous:
and God hathtaken away my judgment 
.

 Job 34:9 For he hath said,
 It profiteth a man nothing that he should delight himself with God.
 Job 34:35  
 Job hath spoken without knowledge, and his words werewithout wisdom....
 Job 34:37 For he
addeth rebellion unto his sin,
he clappeth his handsamong us, and multiplieth his words against God".
God granted Job an audiance with Him as he had a very important point to maketo Job.
 Job 38:2Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said, Who isthis that 
darkeneth
(or gives
murky 
)
counsel by
words without knowledge
 Job 38:3Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
In chapters 38-40 is recorded 74 questions which God asked of Job. Thesequestions were not to settle an argument, but for God to reveal Himself - Hisgoodness, power and wisdom. He did not explain to Job the reasons for hissufferings, but was showing him through these afflictions, a flaw which had beenhiding in the character of this righteous man and could only be manifestedthrough these trials. God's purpose was to open Job’s eyes and rescue him fromthis deadly, unseen mammoth foe.
Job 40:3
So the Lord answered Job and said,
"shall anyone who holds acontroversy with me try to instruct or reprove me as well? He that thinks he isright to argue or justify himself against me, let him answer or give account tohis reasoning.”  Job 40:3Then Job answered the LORD, and said, Job 40:4Behold, I am vile
(impure, sinful, unclean)
; what shall I answer thee? I will lay mine hand upon my mouth. Job 40:5 Once have I spoken; but I will not answer: yea, twice; but I will  proceed no further.
Notice that in Job’s answer to God, he did not justify himself but admitted that hehad sinned against Him. This revelation forever changed Job’s attitude andoutlook towards himself and towards his Creator. Apparently Job needed furtherinstruction and understanding, for once again, out of the whirlwind returns theDivine voice of God. I believe God's main purpose was not to shame Job, but tolead him in a new experience.

The next 8 verses, (Job 40:7-14,) will be paraphrasesd for a more simpleunderstanding of what God is saying to Job.
"Strap on your belt of strength like a warrior as I am going to ask you somequestions and have you answer me." Will you also discredit my judgment? 
Will you condemn or declare
 
me
 
wrong
 
to justify your self-righteousness? 
 Do you have an arm that is mighty and powerful like mine? Can you produce athunderclap?  If so, then dress yourself now with majesty and exaltedness and array
 
yourself with glory, honor, beauty and magnificence. Spew forth the furies of your anger, look upon every one that is arrogant and humble him. See everyone that is proud and bring him to bend the knee into subjection, and tread down or crush the wicked with your foot till they are as powder under your feet.
 
 Bury them all in the dust 
 
together. Cover 
 
their faces in the grave. If you can do all this Job,
Then
I myself will praise you that 
your own right hand is strong enough to bring your own salvation (save, free,avenging, defend, deliver, rescue, get victory).
 Job 40:7-14
 Behemoth -The unseen, silent foe.  The spirit of deception.
God is now going to share with Job an unseen, silent, undetected, formidable foe by describing to him a land beast which was familiar to Job, to give him anunderstanding of this deceptive enemy he was dealing with in his own life. Hisname is
"Behemoth" 
 Again, I will paraphrase the next 10 verses (Job 40:15-24) for simplicity reasonsonly.In describing
behemoth
to Job,
 
God says;"Look at behemoth(large quadruped or 4 legged beast)the mighty powerful,dumb(meaning mute or silent)beast. I created him just like I created you. Heeats grass like an ox.
 His great strength is in his loins and his power is in the navel of his belly.
