Their “Foundation Is in the Dust”

That is why, just as through one man sin entered into the world and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because they had all sinned.


Satan used Eliphaz, one of Job’s three visiting companions, to argue that men are hopelessly weak. Referring to humans as “those dwelling in houses of clay,” he told Job: “Their foundation is in the dust! One crushes them more quickly than a moth. From morning to evening they are crushed to pieces; without anyone’s taking it to heart they perish forever.”

Elsewhere in the Scriptures, we are likened to “earthen vessels”—fragile pots made of clay.  We are weak because of inherited sin and imperfection.  Left to ourselves, we are vulnerable to Satan’s attacks. But as Christians, we are not without help. Despite our weaknesses, we are precious in God’s eyes. Moreover, Jehovah gives holy spirit to those asking him.  His spirit can give us “power beyond what is normal,” enabling us to cope with any adversity Satan inflicts on us.  If we take our stand against the Devil, “solid in the faith,” God will make us firm and strong.  Hence, we need not fear Satan the Devil.
