God, The North, And Satan

GOD, THE NORTH, AND SATAN
JOB 26:5-14 (King James Bible)
Job 26:5 Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof.
Job 26:6 Hell is naked before him, and destruction hath no covering.
Job 26:7 He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.
Job 26:8 He bindeth up the waters in his thick clouds; and the cloud is not rent under them.
Job 26:9 He holdeth back the face of his throne, and spreadeth his cloud upon it.
Job 26:10 He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day and night come to an end.
Job 26:11 The pillars of heaven tremble and are astonished at his reproof.
Job 26:12 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
Job 26:13 By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.
Job 26:14 Lo, these are parts of his ways: but how little a portion is heard of him? but the thunder of his power who can understand?
Notice in verse 7, the King James Bible says, “He stretcheth out the NORTH, over the empty place.” Where is this “north”? It is straight up in the 3rd heaven where God dwells. It is NOT the North Pole.
PSALM 75:6-7 (King James Bible)
Psa 75:6 For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.
Psa 75:7 But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.
Did you see how “north” was replaced with “God”? That is because God dwells in the 3rd heaven, and it is straight up north, past the 1st and 2nd heaven, up above the sea that the face of it is frozen. This sea, which is the waters up above the waters is mentioned in Verses 10 and 12. In verse 10, the Bible says that “He compassed the waters with bounds. That is that these waters are held up in place by the “firmament”. Notice “FIRM”. (Genesis 1:6-8)
The “proud” in Vs.12, are fallen angels, who are under Satan, the “sons of God”
GENESIS 6:1-2 (King James Bible)
Gen 6:1 And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
Gen 6:2 That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
Job 1:6 (King James Bible) Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Job 41:34 He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.
Vs. 34 is talking about Leviathan, which is a reference to Satan. So, Satan is the king over all the children of pride.
In Job 26:13, the Bible mentions a “crooked serpent”. With the #13 being the number of rebellion, and 13 X 2= 26, this is a reference to Satan. Remember when Lucifer rebelled against God?
ISAIAH 14:12-14 (King James Bible)
Isa 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
Isa 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
Here are a few more cross references to the serpent being Satan.
Gen 3:1 (King James Bible) Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Isa 27:1 (King James Bible) In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Rev 20:2 (King James Bible) And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
The Lord Jesus Christ, at his 2nd coming, will divide the sea, where the crooked serpent is at, and will smite through the proud.
