KJV James 5:10-11Take,
my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for

Job had 7,000 sheep – 3,000 camels – 500 Oxen – 500 she
donkey’s – and a very great household making him the greatest of all the
men of the east. Job 1:3

Job took the persecutions and so should we – Matthew 5:10-12.
We must prepare to face Satan’s best – Ephesians 6:10-18.
Job was blessed twice as much as before – Job 42:10-17.
Great also, is our reward if we remain faithful as did Job.
