Job 40: Meet Your Maker
"Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker!"
The English word "maker," which originated from the Anglo-Saxon (the Anglos were a tribe of the Saxons; Saxony was in Germany - the reason that English and German originated from the same people) word machen, means one who produces or creates something.
"Make" and "Maker" are used to translate a number of Biblical Hebrew words, including:
The LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ - see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God) is the Creator (see By Him Were All Things Created), but He is also the Maker - of life for those who obey Him, and of destruction for those who choose to be worthless rebels and traitors to the LORD God (see The Kingdom Of The LORD God).
The LORD is the Maker of all life (see also What Makes Physical Life Possible?).
"1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. 1:21 And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth. 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the fifth day.
The LORD is the Maker of good for those who obey Him (see Christ Died For Repentant Sinners and Why Call Me, Lord, Lord, and Do Not The Things Which I Say?).
"36:3 I will fetch my knowledge from afar, and will ascribe righteousness to my Maker." (Job 36:3 KJV)
The LORD is also the Maker of destruction for those who have chosen to deserve it (see What Happens After The Messiah Returns?).
"32:22 For I know not to give flattering titles; in so doing my maker would soon take me away." (Job 32:22 KJV)
The LORD provided many lessons to righteous Job (see What Did The LORD Teach About How To Pray?, The First Teacher, Red Sky At Night, Sailor's Delight, What Are The Hunter and The Seven Sisters Doing In Heaven? and What Did The LORD Say About Animals?). Just before the LORD restored Job to more than he had before his tribulation (see What Did Satan Accuse The LORD Of Doing?, How Did The Devil Challenge Job To Commit A Satan? and What Did Satan Do To Job's Soul?), He gave him a lesson in how the LORD is the Maker of all things.
"40:1 Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said,
