Looking through Job for something this morning, I found the following, which I had underlined before and forgot to bring up when I needed it here earlier. We know that Job declared that he knew his Redeemer lived, but take a look at this from 16:18-21 O earth, do not cover my blood; may my cry never be laid to rest! Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend. Even if the 'Gospel in the Stars' is rejected (and, I think, unrightly), we have clear evidence here that all along man knew about the function of the Messiah and His reality: Redeemer, Intercessor, Friend. Isaiah knew quite well He would also be God. We do them a real disservice to follow the concept that they were somehow ignorant of the saving grace of God and the actual Person of Christ preincarnate. So many times people say the Trinity was not known in the OT. It may have been forgotten by the Jews, but it was clearly there at least until the time of David, via Psalm 2 and others. In short, salvation has been available to all the people through all time, and always through the Promise of God -- The Messiah Jesus Christ.
