Romans 2:11

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Romans 2:11

11 For [gar] there is [esti] no [ou] respect of persons [prosopolepsia] with [para] God [theos].   KJV-Interlinear

11 For God shows no partiality.   ESV

Unlike people in this world, God does not show favoritism for anyone for any reason.  The word for respect, ‘prosopolepsia,’ means partiality or favorites.

And with respect to people, there are only two major categories of people, believers and unbelievers.  Each category has its own set of rules with which God deals.

As for unbelievers, the issue is faith in Christ. 

As for believers, the issue is obedience to the mandates of God with regard to the development and adherence to, the spiritual life.

God deals with everyone on the same level playing field.

Righteousness and Justice are never compromised.  God makes no exceptions for anyone. God does not excuse anyone from the fundamental rules of the spiritual life.

God does not allow anyone to make up their own set of rules.

You are either in compliance with Gods rules or you are not.

And by the way, God decides who is or who is not in compliance, not you.

You have the responsibility to know where you stand, and to find out where you stand, and to learn so that you will know one way or another.  God makes it all clear but that has to be learned, which of course depends on you.

So pretending or ignoring what is expected of you, and trying to do your own thing, so to speak, will not help you.

It will not help you get out of punishment.  It will not help you get reward.

Sincerity or good intentions, or some argument of yours that you are impressed by, won’t work.

God is fair, God has rules, and God makes them available for knowing.

Isaiah 24:1

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 24:1

1 Behold, the LORD [Yahovah] maketh the earth ['erets] empty [baqaq], and maketh it waste [balaq], and turneth [`avah] it upside down [paniym], and scattereth abroad [puwts] the inhabitants [yashab] thereof.   KJV-Interlinear

1 Behold, the LORD will empty the earth and make it desolate, and he will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants.   ESV

Since the thirteenth chapter, the description of the ultimate result of the evil of humanity, which includes all of the indifference and pretense directed toward Christ, will be the systematic and violent dismantling of the entire world.  This prophecy series, has been a long time known and a long time ignored, even scoffed at by generation after generation.

The word earth, denotes not just a given region, but the entire planet.

The world will be made empty and made waste and thus will be depopulated.  All wealth will be destroyed.  All production will be halted.  All government will be dismantled.  All of society will cease.  All cultures, all historical elements, everything that humanity holds near and dear to itself, will end.

Obviously this has not yet occurred in history.  It remains future and is assigned to the Tribulation or the final days and months and years of history. The final seven years to be exact. And with human history lasting for many thousands of years thus far, those final seven years will be dramatic to beyond the extreme, and extremely fast moving.

Turned upside down, means just that.  The entire world will be disfigured.  Mountains will collapse, islands will vanish, the geography of entire continents will change dramatically.  Survival for anyone will be virtually impossible, except for those few, very few, who will look to Christ for their deliverance at the second advent.

The inhabitants of the entire world, will be scattered. The word for scattered, ‘puwts,’ means to break, to dash, to shake in to pieces, cast (abroad), disperse (selves), drive, retire, scatter (abroad), spread abroad.  In other words all who attempt to remain where they are for safety will be not be able to do so.  As the earth shakes and rolls and transforms, all will be systematically ripped from wherever they are, and sent to places with total and complete helplessness.  Needless to say, there will be no survivors among the unbelieving, nor among the indifferent despite their pretended or weak faith.

Isaiah 23:18

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 23:18

18 And her merchandise [cachar] and her hire ['ethnan] shall be holiness [qodesh] to the LORD [Yahovah]: it shall not be treasured ['atsar] nor laid up [chacan]; for her merchandise [cachar] shall be for them that dwell [yashab] before [paniym] the LORD [Yahovah], to eat ['akal] sufficiently [sob`ah], and for durable [`athiyq] clothing [makacceh].   KJV-Interlinear

18 Her merchandise and her wages will be holy to the LORD. It will not be stored or hoarded, but her merchandise will supply abundant food and fine clothing for those who dwell before the LORD.   ESV

Tyre, represents the ultimate in corruption in economics and secular life that will one day be destroyed within the space of one reign of an evil ruler.  That will all occur within the space of the seven years of the Tribulation.  This all following the pattern of its history way back when it was destroyed by Babylon, restored under Persia, after seventy years, and then taken again by Alexander.

At the end of the seven year rule of the anti-christ, for which it is completed, we know that Christ will return in the Second Advent to completely obliterate the world and the evil that is within it.  But He will also rescue many believers who will have survived and of whom will become the initial population of Gods Kingdom here on the earth, which we call the Millennium.

With the world virtually destroyed, that small population will need something to live on, and those resources will come out of whatever remains from the destroyed world, Eze. 39.  And so they will live for seven years on those resources left behind, scattered on the battlefields, and so forth.

All of the logistical resources and supplies that had been intended for evil, will become the resources for the initial years of the Millennium.

Isaiah 23:17

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 23:17

17 And it shall come to pass after the end [qets] of seventy [shib`iym] years [shaneh], that the LORD [Yahovah] will visit [paqad] Tyre [Tsor], and she shall turn [shuwb] to her hire ['ethnan], and shall commit fornication [zanah] with all the kingdoms [mamlakah] of the world ['erets] upon the face [paniym] of the earth ['adamah].  KJV-Interlinear

17 At the end of seventy years, the LORD will visit Tyre, and she will return to her wages and will prostitute herself with all the kingdoms of the world on the face of the earth.   ESV

We have already studied the meaning of the seventy year period.  For it is both an actual seventy year period which occurred in the distant past between the Babylonian and Persian empires, as well as a symbolic period of a single but completed reign pointing toward the reign of the anti-christ who will rule in the future during the seven year Tribulation.

The principle being made here, is that despite its old ways which are being compared to that of the prostitute who earns her pay through interactions with anyone, so too, Tyre earned her pay through trading with anyone whether legal or not.  And as a result of her improprieties, so to speak, Tyre was destroyed.

Gods brings destruction, but God also brings recovery.

The Tyre of the past, did not learn from its destruction.  People of the past, or of any generation for that matter, did not and do not learn from their past.

Tyre will return to its former ways and will be destroyed again and again as history repeats itself from generation to generation.

When it is finally destroyed again in the Tribulation, it will be recovered, not as Tyre, but as the economy of the Millennium, as people who remain alive at the second advent will begin a new race of humanity during the Millennium, which will last for 1000 years, but in the end, the people will turn away again from Christ despite his actual presence here on the earth.

Not having learned from history, that last and final economy will be destroyed as the whole old universe is destroyed and will be replaced with whatever God has in mind for the new universe.  This time it will last forever.

Despite what anyone thinks, all of history is courtesy of Jesus Christ.  All economics are courtesy of Jesus Christ.  All life is courtesy of Jesus Christ.

There is no such thing as a self-made person.

Everything that exists today was built upon the events of the past, all of which God designed and coordinated through His divine plan.

Only man takes those blessings and turns them into evil ways, which from time to time, need to be corrected through judgments of one sort or another, lest mans genius would have led to his total destruction long ago.


Psalm 33:22b

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Psalm 33:22b

22 Let thy mercy [checed], O LORD [Yahovah], be upon us, according as we hope [yachal] in thee.  KJV-Interlinear

22 Let your steadfast love, O LORD, be upon us, even as we hope in you.   ESV

Your expectations of blessing, should be a reflection of your inner desire and hunger for truth.  If your quest for doctrine is pretended or superficial or non-compliant with Gods rules, then that is the real reflection of your inner desire or lack of it, regardless of your outer performance in front of people.

If you are reluctant to comply with Gods mandates, then it would be unreasonable to expect much in the way of blessing and you certainly should not be surprised when trouble visits your life.

All of these things can be easily dealt with on the personal level, simply by correcting your attitude and changing your desire into a genuine one for learning and understanding exactly what God wants and expects of you, and then pursuing that process as God intends.

But when you don’t take the hints that life gives you, with all of the little or big warnings that are intended to get your attention, then that sort of stubbornness makes your change of heart, just that much more difficult.

The longer you are defiant or resistant or indifferent, the deeper the pit of trouble you are digging for yourself.

On the world scale, look at the many problems that exist or the threat of problems, that should be enough to bring changes in people. 

Recently there was the ebola situation in Dallas, where one person arrived in Dallas, infected two others and caused hundreds of others to be placed on a watch list.  Was that enough to bring a change in your life?

Then there was another man in New York, just a day or so ago, a doctor who was treating ebola patients and then came home without going into any sort of quarantine.  He has been back and working for two weeks, and just what will be the repercussions of that incident still remains to be seen?  But yet another threat or warning for society, that the really bad threats are out there and it takes but a little irresponsibility, and simple mistakes to place huge numbers of people in danger of actually dying.

Are those significant enough to bring change in your life?

And going back just a few years, when there was a tsunami in Indonesia or the major earthquake in Haiti where in both instances many hundreds of thousands of people died.  Was that major enough to bring changes in anyone?

On the personal level we have people that take a rather indifferent or belligerent attitude toward authority.

Children disrespect parents, wives disrespect husbands, workers disrespect employers or their jobs, citizens disrespect their own country, politicians abuse the powers of their office, and on and on and on.

And yet it was God who placed authority into motion so as to provide order, not chaos, into the functions of society.  The issue is never whether or not a supervisor is smarter than you, the issue is always the respect required of the positions in view.  And when authority breaks down, then trouble is always very near. 

The desired affect is never achieved, when Gods design is ignored, and you think you know better, or you simply do not like your role in life. 

Likewise, the desired blessings that one wants, are never received.

These are but a few examples of how to fail and how to perpetuate your own misery, which by the way, is caused by your own decisions and attitudes.

Resisting Gods mandates overflows into all manner of life, wherein instead of complying with and supporting the spirit of truth, you are in effect a participant in the destruction of life itself, as well as yourself.  Then you have only yourself to blame, never someone else.

Who is destroying the world?  Who is destroying society?  Who is destroying themselves?  All who ignore the proper function and application of their spiritual lives.

Life is not a game, but a very serious thing.  How you approach life will determine what kind of quality of life you will or will not enjoy.

God placed you into this world in order to prepare you for life with Him for all of eternity, not for you to set up your own domain of sorts in spite of Him.
