While the book of Job subtly hints at a pre-consciousness. (Ephesians 1:4, Jeremiah 1:5 and Psalm 139:16) There is a sense of finding oneself in a strange land, in search of one’s way home. This deep, less obvious, inner search seems to mark Job’s life! The author of “The Wizard of Oz” understood Job’s journey, representing all of us, from “Uz”. Many childhood stories are based on Biblical truths like “Sleeping Beauty”, for instance, the asleep church, forgetting who she is, as the Bride of Christ, until she is kissed by the Prince, her Savior to wake up, thus remembering. How about the “Three Little Pigs”, being based on 1st Corinthians 3:10-15
After much search, trying to figure things out on his own, it became clear, to Job, that the way home is through relationship with the One who lives on the inside, the One who knows all things, submitting to his authority. Job is, thus, no longer, a captive to Uz, this area he calls home, that of Edom, the land of Esau, the one who God hates, Malachi 1:1-5. Perhaps Esau is, later born with such a disposition, to be hated by God, because of understanding that Esau was, forever, hard towards God; perhaps one of the tougher “middle-of-the-roaders”. Does this indicate a stand already taken towards God, before being born into the earth, thus hopeless for redemption?
Many of the elite, today, speak of Freedom when they really mean “Fre-Edom”, bringing Jacob and Esau together, not through redemption and reconciliation with the One True God, through Christ, but combining all beliefs into one “woke” mess! For instance, most of our forefathers, being Christians, drew up a very God-inspired constitution. There were a few masons, however, who were able to interject their influence to “muddy” the waters, just a little, as with Judas being given a seat at the table at the Last Super, with darkness needing to always be given a seat, in this realm where both the Light and the dark are allowed to co-exist for a chance to choose or reject redemption and reconciliation, indicating our prior relationship with the Father, before earth. Were we part of the war between good and evil that broke out in Heaven, the reason that Satan fell from there, like lightening, (Luke 10:18), taking 1/3 of the angels with him? (Revelation 12:4,9). This tells me that there must have been three groups, present at the time. One must have stayed loyal to the Father, to keep their home in Heaven, those who we refer to as angels, today. This leaves one more group, present in Heaven. Is this group, actually us, perhaps, “middle-of-the-roaders”, sentenced to this realm of redemption and reconciliation, where both the Light and the dark coexist for a chance to choose, a second chance? If so, it is no wonder that Revelation 3:16 says that to be lukewarm is to be spewed out of the Father’s mouth, as He has already gone down that road with us, before, a pre-consciousness
