Job knows that he will see God his redeemer standing upon the earth

Job 19 v

25 For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:

26 And though after my skin worms destroy this body, yet in my flesh shall I see God:

27 Whom I shall see for myself, and mine eyes shall behold, and not another; though my reins be consumed within me.

Thus he believes in the God-man Jesus whom he will see in the flesh with his own eyes standing upon the earth.

    “Though my reins be consumed within me.”

    It is obvious the Trinitarians are so blind spiritually, despite being literate but they can’t read.

    The only logical condition for *his reins would be consumed within himself* is when Job’s physical eyes can’t see anything anymore.
    The reins are the normal physical senses, such as eyes, that control a living man.

    Neither does Job refer to the Day of Jesus’ Second Coming at all, because on that day each of Job’s reins (senses, body, mind, and eyes) shall be re-functioned again and shall be given a new flesh.

    Contextually, Job speaks about his mental eyes when he is dead, not about the physical eyes before or after his resurrection.

    Rather, Job talks about his inner spiritual conscience of seeing God figuratively. So, Job is saying that although it is impossible for his consumed reins to see God from the realm of death or in the loss of all senses, but nevertheless, his soul shall see God thru immaterial means, that is by his spiritual sighting, by his mentality.

    In conclusion, Job is just saying that by the grace of God his redeemer, by the power of His possibilities, Job shall know and see God at time when his soul is coming back to His hand. In the absence of both his old body and his new body, God would let Job see Him, that God ensures how He keeps preserving Job’s soul.

    David says it in similar ideas:
    Ps 139
    7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there.

    Job says that he alone – by using the specific words *for myself* – shall see God. Therein Job clearly negates *another* man.
    If he had referred to the future when Jesus reappears again in this world, Job would have been ridiculous since everyone shall see Jesus altogether.

    Job says that *his reins would be consumed within himself* which indicate Job’s physical eyes can’t see anything anymore.
    Contextually, Job speaks about his mental eyes when he is dead, not about the physical eyes before or after his resurrection. Job knows that his soul shall have a chance to see God. It doesn’t go downwards to the earth, but rather shall return upwards to God.

    Anthropomorphism is a poetic figure of speech in the Scriptures, such as the word “walking” (going) for God.
    In the wartime, it is described how God “walks in” the midst of military bases, but God turns away when seeing men’s feces, urine and other unclean things scattered over the camps. Of course it doesn’t infer that God fears the feces. Walking in the camps means a blessing.
    Deut 23:14
    For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee.

    In a poetic sense, it is described how God “walks in” a tent and in a tabernacle actively rather than “resting” passively in it.
    In reality, it is Jews actually who walk on foot when going with the Ark which they placed on their shoulders and hands. Walking in the tent means a blessing.
    2Sam 7:6
    Whereas I have not dwelt in any house since the time that I brought up the children of Israel out of Egypt, even to this day, but have walked in a tent and in a tabernacle.

    Adam hears how the voice goes into Eden. Walking in the garden means a blessing.
    Gen 3:8
    And they heard the voice of the LORD God going in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
