Job is a man who is plunged into agony, and for chapter after chapter, we’ve been seeing Job confused and angry, crying out to God in prayer. Two things keep coming up through all that. Job says, “I don’t want to suffer without explanation, and I don’t want to suffer without vindication.” He keeps saying, “I want to appear before God. I want to talk to God. I want to meet God face to face.” Therefore, if you’re reading through the book of Job, you know the only way this story can end is for God to actually show up and respond to Job.
And God does. This is the climax of the whole book. There are three things we’re going to learn about this final climactic appearance of God before Job. Let’s look at the argument of God, the silences of God, and God’s wonderful, terrible storm.
