Re:Verse passage – Job 1:1-12 (day three)

“The sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan also came among them.”

Nobody knows for sure what is meant by “the sons of God.” Fallen angels, mysterious divine beings, righteous individuals, and, in Genesis, the sons of Seth — all of these suggestions and more have been advanced as possible explanations of this puzzling phrase. Does this kind of meeting still happen? Are conversations like this going on right now? Do God and Satan keep in touch? Well, Jesus kept company with a shady crowd, and that’s an earthly example of what it seems was already happening in heaven. One thing is for sure. No evil will startle God. And apparently, the devil isn’t good at keeping his own plans hidden from the Lord. Don’t you worry.
