Psalm 33:4

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Psalm 33:4

4 For the word [dabar] of the LORD [Yahovah] is right [yashar]; and all his works [ma`aseh] are done in truth ['emuwnah].  KJV-Interlinear

4 For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness.  ESV

Man typically complains, ‘Why does God allow this or that?’  One of the fundamental premises of the angelic conflict, is mans belief that man can handle his own existence, by himself.  That man does not need God. That man can solve his own problems.  And yet when things go wrong, who gets blamed?

And the truth of the matter is, that God does everything in truth, in fairness, in all integrity and honesty.

Man does everything from the source of his sin nature.  And the sin nature is anything but truth, but fairness, but integrity or honesty.  In fact, man causes most of his own problems, and there isn’t very much that man can control, anyway.  Mans chief habit is complaining.

The fool trusts in man.  The wise trusts in God.

God is reliable. God does not change His policy with the changing circumstances of life.  God is consistent and dependable.

Man runs a world that is ninety percent poor and one-hundred percent problematic, and yet it is God who sustains the world despite all of its problems.

Left to his own devices, life would have ended long ago.

Therefore, the reason for the phenomenal happiness that comes with Bible doctrine and the advanced spiritual life, is that it is all based on Bible doctrine, and it relies on God alone.

The spiritual life does not depend on circumstances, nor is it dependent on any given situation.

God can work His will without regard to human means.

Romans 1:24

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Romans 1:24

24 Wherefore [dio] God [theos] also [kai] gave [paradidomi] them [autos] up [paradidomi] to [eis] uncleanness [akatharsia] through [en] the lusts [epithumia] of their own [autos] hearts [kardia], to dishonour [atimazo] their own [autos] bodies [soma] between [en] themselves [heautou]:   KJV-Interlinear

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,   ESV

Jesus Christ controls history. He controls history in three ways. First, He controls history directly through the will of His own power. He created the universe.  He created life, and so forth.

Second, He controls history indirectly through doctrine.  Man learns doctrine and abides by its rules and principles for the perpetuation of self and humanity.  The Laws of Establishment are an integral part of divine control and doctrine.

Third, God controls history by His permission, allowing the free will of man to function without interruption and unhindered.  Man thinks and makes decisions.  God allows those decisions, even when they are terribly wrong.  God never coerces anyone.  He warns of the consequences, but never forces anyone to change or go His way.

God is truth.  God makes the lies of this world clear. But man has to want to see the truth, and if man does not want to see truth, then there is nothing that can be done, except to keep on making truth available and then perhaps one day the person will come around.

Then there comes a time when God simply knows that nothing is going to change.

You and I cannot make that decision, because we cannot see into the soul of others, and we cannot see in to their future.  But God has all of the facts, past, present, and future.  And even though God knows from eternity past, that someone will fail, He still aids them, with truth during their life, until they have sufficiently demonstrated their permanent resistance, and then allows them to go their own way.

God never forces anyone down the wrong path.  But God will let people choose the wrong path, on their own.

But remember one important principle, people are without excuse.  Truth is always available and everyone, one way or another is aware of truth, just as they make their wrong choices, in rejecting truth.

All eyes are wide open, as it were, and no one can later on say, that they did not know, or that no one told them, or that no one warned them, or if they had known the results, then they would have done things differently.  Not so.

Lusts, impure hearts, and dishonored bodies, speak of wrong intent, wrong thoughts, and wrong results.  Their entire essence is wrong, from beginning to end.  They wanted something, they decided for it, and they did it.  And this is a picture of a total life collapse of the individual who rejects truth.  This is a picture of anyone's life, when Bible doctrine is ignored or rejected.

God has rules.  The rules of life are strict but very simple to follow.

It actually takes more effort to reject truth and keep on rejecting truth, than to follow truth.

The rewards of rejection are harsh.  The rewards of compliance with doctrine are phenomenal.

Why then is it so difficult for most of the world to see this?

And the answer is that it is not difficult, it is arrogance and the forces that drive it, and the persons resolve to pursue evil.

Humanity has experienced every circumstance imaginable, in history, and in every situation, there are people who have chosen against truth, but too there are those who have chosen for truth, so right choices are always possible.  No circumstance, or situation makes truth or right choices unattainable.

Truth and right choices are always within reach.

Romans 1:23

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Romans 1:23

23 And [kai] changed [allasso] the glory [doxa] of the uncorruptible [aphthartos] God [theos] into [en] an image [eikon] made like [homoioma] to corruptible [phthartos] man [anthropos], and [kai] to birds [peteinon], and [kai] fourfooted beasts [tetrapous], and [kai] creeping things [herpeton].  KJV-Interlinear

23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.  ESV

Anytime you substitute something else in place of God, that makes you a fool. That includes idols, but also resistance to obey His mandates.  Any substitution, whether in attitude or in the object of your praise, says that you prefer something else more than you prefer God.

Now, God is life.  God is truth.  God invented, designed, created everything in this universe.  God sustains everything, even life itself.  And He does it in spite of the overwhelming opposition that is directed toward Him.

Your reluctant attitude means that you know more than God knows. That you are equal to God.  That you have discovered something that God overlooked.  That your beliefs, which are based on, well, your beliefs, are more real to you than reality.

A rock, or a sculpted thing, wood, an animal, a bird, a cosmic object, snakes, even the image of man himself, are not life, not truth, are not even capable of inventing anything, let alone hearing you, or seeing you, or speaking to you, or interacting with you in any way, shape or form.

And yet people who pursue these things, have discovered that rocks or animals or sculptured things are somehow smarter and more capable than God.

The next time you walk past a tree, ask it for financial advice, or even a sandwich.  Perhaps it can give you the time of day or eternal life.

Perhaps you will discover some secret to the universe that somehow no one else in history has discovered, or that not even God knows.

They say a fool is born every minute.  If so, then this world has got to be jam packed with fools.

What does that say about humanity and their interest in truth, or in Christ?

Isaiah 22:14

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 22:14ues

14 And it was revealed [galah] in mine ears ['ozen] by the LORD [Yahovah] of hosts [tsaba'], Surely this iniquity [`avon] shall not be purged [kaphar] from you till ye die [muwth], saith ['amar] the Lord ['Adonay] GOD [Yahovih] of hosts [tsaba'].  KJV-Interlinear

14 The LORD of hosts has revealed himself in my ears:  “Surely this iniquity will not be atoned for you until you die,” says the Lord GOD of hosts.  ESV

One of the more remarkable verses is given here, in which it describes the extremes of stubbornness that humanity can and will go to, and even intentionally, even when they face certain death and total destruction of themselves.

As Paul and Jesus described, that in the end of our current dispensation there will be a great apostasy, here we can see just how extreme that it can be, and will be.

Note that these events will occur seven years after the Rapture, and we know that when the Rapture does occur, that all believers are gone, and all that remain in the world will be unbelievers.

The world will not remain that way throughout the entire Tribulation, for as life gets worse and worse, and as Satan clamps down harder and harder to bring all of humanity under  his will, people will not comply.  Satan will kill any and all who reject him, and even in that face of death, huge numbers will reject Satan and turn to Christ, knowing that they will indeed die.  So, Satan cannot control the world, and will never be able to control it.

Jesus Christ controls history, and He isn’t even here.  He doesn’t have to be.

But there will likewise be a hardened population, which will never turn to Christ.

And we saw that their attitude is to party and revel in whatever stimulus that is nearby.

And Isaiah tells us right now, that there will be a hardened population of people who will never turn to Christ and their sins will never be forgiven, because of their stubborn indifference, and they will go to their death, with all certainty, refusing to repent right up until their last breath.

That is the epitome of stubbornness and arrogance and stupidity.

And remember one important principle of doctrine. Your sins were judged on the cross but they were not forgiven.  And that is an extremely important principle.  Judgment and forgiveness are two very different concepts.

In judgment the penalty is paid and the freedom is purchased.

But in forgiveness the sinner has to acknowledge his sin and thus obtain forgiveness.  That is why when you believe in Christ, you have acknowledged Him and who and what He is, and did, on the cross which includes by default acknowledging your failure in sin.  Thus you obtain immediate forgiveness for your sins.  That is a part of the salvation process.

Unbelievers never obtain forgiveness, because they never acknowledge their failure by never believing in Christ.

Note, salvation is not by acknowledging sins, it is only by faith in Christ.  Just want to make that clear.  Your acknowledgement of sin is understood when you believed in Christ.  Thus at the moment of salvation, you begin your Christian life, in fellowship.

Then obviously during your life as a believer, you sin from time to time, which expels you from fellowship and a face to face relationship with God, and that requires confession in order to reinstate your fellowship status.  You never ever lose salvation.

God requires perfection and a clean relationship, thus confession is mandatory.  He has already paid the price, you just have to keep acknowledging you flaws.  That helps you keep your focus.

But there are those who are so rigid that they will never believe, and/or never confess.

And Isaiah is speaking Gods words here, as he addresses those people who will be so hardened, that they will go to their death never having believed in Christ, and in the case of hardened believers, they will go to their death, as a spiritually dysfunctional believer, resisting Gods mandates, never confessing or turning to Him in any way, shape or form.
