Isaiah 29:17

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Isaiah 29:17

17 Is it not yet a very [miz`ar] little while [m@`at], and Lebanon [L@banown] shall be turned [shuwb] into a fruitful field [karmel], and the fruitful field [karmel] shall be esteemed [chashab] as a forest [ya`ar]?   KJV-Interlinear

17 Is it not yet a very little while until Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field, and the fruitful field shall be regarded as a forest?   ESV

The warning here, is that, no matter what plans man has, those plans will fail, and eventually will be replaced by Gods plans, which will not fail.

Throughout this chapter the wicked prosper, and presume that their prosperity is by their own effort and ingenuity.  A belief that could not be further from the truth.

God laid the groundwork for all things.  He placed the oil in the ground, which had to be found.  He placed the gold in the hills, which had to be found.  He placed doctrine in the Bible, which likewise has to be found.

People will go to extraordinary lengths to look for oil and gold, but they do not seem interested in Bible doctrine.

People have phenomenal abilities, beauty, talents, intellect and so forth, and they will use those attributes for themselves.

People make and build and invent all kinds of things, and people will pursue them at great lengths to possess them.

And yet it is God who made and provided all of the initial ingredients for whatever it is that is in this world, or in you.

God gets no credit for His work or provision.   People will not even acknowledge God, but instead pursue the things of this world, while their own life, their own soul, goes incomplete and unprepared for eternity.

Man makes plans. Man makes his own plans.  And eventually they all fail.

Man has a limited lifespan, which trumps everything that man plans.  So, no matter what you think or do in this life, it will all come to an end.

And not only that, but it is man who will bring the ultimate destruction of himself, to himself.

And yet, even after mans destruction, God will step in and bring it all back to better than before.

Lebanon is a region that was known for great forests and cedars and so forth.  But too, it is man who has turned it into a desert.

One day, after man has had his chance and failed, then the gardens and forests will return, and not only return, but they will be better than before.

All anyone has to do, is to pursue truth as though it was a great treasure, which it is.  But too often man will pursue lesser things with greater effort, rather than seeking, pursuing, and listening to instruction of a greater treasure, which is Bible doctrine, with infinite value.

Isaiah 29:16

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Isaiah 29:16

16 Surely your turning of things upside down [hophek] shall be esteemed [chashab] as the potter's [yatsar] clay [chomer]: for shall the work [ma`aseh] say ['amar] of him that made [`asah] it, He made [`asah] me not? or shall the thing framed [yetser] say ['amar] of him that framed [yatsar] it, He had no understanding [biyn]?   KJV-Interlinear

16 You turn things upside down! Shall the potter be regarded as the clay, that the thing made should say of its maker, “He did not make me”; or the thing formed say of him who formed it, “He has no understanding”?   ESV

Anyone who ignores their obligations in the spiritual life, run the huge risk of perverting and distorting their own thinking into the depths of the absurd.

Can the clay pot tell anyone anything?

Can the clay tell the potter that he did not make the pot, or even that the potter has no wisdom or ability?

And the answer is of course, no.

First the clay has nothing unless it is given to it, and second the clay cannot, and is unable to, design itself, define itself, or make itself.

As it were, the clay has nothing and will never have anything unless and until, a designer fashions character into it.

This of course destroys all aspects of evolution.  Creation is the clay, and man is the clay, and all of life is the clay. 

It did not bring itself into existence.

It did not define its own existence.

It did not design its own existence.

It did not even stumble into its own existence.

And you, as an individual, have nothing unless it comes to you, from a higher power, namely God.

You cannot rationalize anything, unless you have access and understanding of reality as well as orientation to reality.  Without doctrine, and Bible doctrine leads you to many forms of truth, but without it, you will have no connection to life.

And that lack of orientation leads inevitably to false logic, false reasoning, false conclusions and ultimately to the absurd.

Psalm 37:16


Copyright  2015 J. Neely
Psalm 37:16

16 A little [m@`at] that a righteous man [tsaddiyq] hath is better [towb] than the riches [hamown] of many [rab] wicked [rasha`].   KJV-Interlinear

16 Better is the little that the righteous has than the abundance of many wicked.   ESV

The righteous person, using the complete definition of righteous, is the spiritually mature person, or one who has advanced in their spiritual life by means of learning Bible doctrine, using doctrine, and all while living in fellowship, which is the environment of the spiritual life.

But too, the word for righteous can be applied to salvation, by distinguishing a saved person from an unsaved person.

And, it can also be applied to believers in Christ by distinguishing a productive or advancing Christian from one who is not advancing in their spiritual life.

Wickedness typically describes anyone who lives outside of the spiritual realm.

It can be applied to an unbeliever, for by definition, all unbelievers are wicked as they have no spiritual life or resources.

It can be used to describe a believer who lives a pattern of life out of fellowship.  Fellowship is the environment of the spiritual life.  So, living out of fellowship means living outside of the spiritual environment.

Now for our verse.

In this world, possessions are usually defined in terms of value or wealth or what you can see, touch, smell, and so forth, or more appropriately, things that you have or possess.

And the things of this world are generally valued more than the things of the spiritual realm, which you cannot see or measure.

So, the righteous have faith or doctrine, and the wicked value things.

But things, last only as long as your life here in this world.  While doctrine, or faith, lasts forever.

Suppose you are a billionaire and you live for 100 years, then you die.

As a billionaire you will live pretty good in this world.  No argument there.  But when you die, the tables change.  Your worth is measured in terms of your spiritual status.  If you have not believed in Christ, then you face all of eternity in the Lake of Fire.  And 100 years now, is nothing when compared to eternity.  So that would not be a good trade to have the good life now and then torments forever.

The same is similar for believers who lack spiritual resources.  To emphasize possessions now, or to resist spiritual growth, over legitimate spiritual growth, means that you will die one day and then stand before the Lord.  Christ will look at you and give your evaluation based on your spiritual resources, production and so forth, which determines your eternal reward. If you have nothing, no spiritual growth that is, then your reward is little if at all.  You live in heaven, but with no reward.

And rewards in heaven are measured by their eternal lifespan, which, if you have nothing, then you will have nothing for a long time.  So that is a huge loss.  Infinity times something is big.  Infinity times nothing is zero no matter how you calculate it.

So, better to have your spiritual life now, and then huge reward and much more for all of eternity, than to have all of the wealth in this world now and nothing for all of eternity.

The wealth of the world is fixed and temporary.  The wealth of eternity is infinite and beyond measure.  Even billions or trillions now, are no comparison to infinity.

The best situation would of course be a billionaire now and a spiritually mature believer.  That gives you the best of now and eternity.

But, that is not going to happen for most of us.  So we are left with the only investment that is available to us, for a wonderful eternity, and that investment is by learning and utilizing doctrine and advancing to spiritual maturity, now, while we can.

Before you were born into this world, you did not have any say as to how your life would be. What you have now, is what you were dealt, as it were.

But, as to eternity, you have every opportunity now, to define a phenomenal life for yourself, if you get with a daily study, and learn, and grow up in your spiritual life.

By pursuing your daily studies, you have everything to gain.  By doing nothing, you have only yourself to blame for your loss.

Psalm 37:15


Copyright  2015 J. Neely
Psalm 37:15

15 Their sword [chereb] shall enter [bow'] into their own heart [leb], and their bows [qesheth] shall be broken [shabar].   KJV-Interlinear

15 their sword shall enter their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.    ESV

The sword represents the action of the individual.  And here the actions of the wicked, will fail.  And not only fail, but their efforts will fall upon themselves, and not their intended victims.  Remember that the wicked, includes everyone who does not comply with Gods mandates or will.

This includes all unbelievers due to their rejection of Jesus Christ.

This includes all believers who live outside of the spiritual realm, namely out of fellowship.

The bow, represents the plan and will of the individual. 

The bow is an offensive or proactive weapon.  The individual who carries the bow, intends to use it and takes it with them, for a specific purpose.

And as the context of this passage is wickedness, then the bow is not merely there for defense or just in case, it is carried because of a thought out plan or intent.

Nevertheless, the plan, as are all plans of man, will be broken, destroyed, failed miserably.

God is truth.

Any deviation from God is not truth, and therefore a lie.

Truth is orientation to reality.

Lies are disorientation to reality.

Rejection of God, Christ, and doctrine are the ultimate disorientation in life.
