Isaiah 22:3

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 22:3ues

3 All thy rulers [qatsiyn] are fled [nadad] together [yachad], they are bound ['acar] by the archers [qesheth]: all that are found [matsa'] in thee are bound ['acar] together [yachad], which have fled [barach] from far [rachowq].  KJV-Interlinear

3 All your rulers have fled together, And have been captured without the bow; All of you who were found were taken captive together, Though they had fled far away.  NASB

Jerusalem is in view here.  It is spiritually dysfunctional because the people disregarded God and His Word and did not learn anything.  The city that is supposed to be the representation of Gods vast wisdom and peace, is now in its deepest valley of spiritual despair.

Its leadership will run away.

Bound, here represents the feeling of fear or being seized or bound up with fear at the prospect of an advancing enemy.

They are so in terror, that even the professional military types, here represented as the archers, cannot even lift or use their bows and arrows.  They drop their weapons and run without firing off a single shot.  The average citizen is left unprotected.

All will run and all will try to run far away, but there is no place that is far enough, for they will be captured and thereby placed in prisons, tortured, executed and probably worse for many of them.

And so is the nature of those who have no doctrine in their souls.

Bible doctrine produces courage and the courageous.

Lack of doctrine produces cowards.

Everyone in life will face pressures of one sort or another.  If you have committed yourself to a daily study, then you will learn and you will eventually be able to handle anything that comes along.

With such preparation, then God never places anything greater before you, that you cannot handle.  Because, with spiritual maturity, you will be able to handle anything.

Without doctrine, without any spiritual growth, then nearly everything will cause you to be seized with fear and anxiety.  And even if you are able to handle the little things, like a broken finger nail, there will be sooner or later, something that will destroy your poise.

With doctrine in the soul, you will be able to handle the little things as well as the huge problems of life.

Psalm 32:8

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Psalm 32:8

8 I will instruct [sakal] thee and teach [yarah] thee in the way [derek] which [zuw] thou shalt go [yalak]: I will guide [ya`ats] thee with mine eye [`ayin].  KJV-Interlinear

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.  NASB

Why do people fail in life?  Because they pretend to be Christian, but refuse the mandatory requirements of learning doctrine through instruction.  You cannot know unless you learn and you cannot learn if you reject instruction.  And one day, we will all stand before Christ and those who learned nothing, will be embarrassed beyond belief.

I have been writing this daily study for many, many years.  There are now over 8000 individual daily studies on the Daily Bible Study web site.  I do this for the love of doctrine, but also so you can have an opportunity to improve and enhance and complete your life.

Far too many people are simply indifferent toward studying and learning.  And that is a sad thing, to have such a phenomenal opportunity to advance in life, but because of simple laziness, they spend their whole life going nowhere. 

That leaves a very small number that actually do take God and doctrine seriously and see its extreme value for their life.

I will instruct, ‘sakal,’ God teaches,  He trains, He provides the nuts and bolt details of learning by means of the written word.  But that learning does not come automatically or by wishes.  It comes through the academic process of daily instruction.

Bible doctrine is the food of the soul and food is to be eaten daily.

And teach, ‘yarah,’ means to teach repetitively as in the constant flowing of water.  Learning is an ongoing never ending process. There is no graduation, no end to the process, we are to learn and keep on learning throughout our entire life.

In the way, is a phrase that establishes the fundamental pattern of our daily life.  Our habit of dedicating some time, not much, but certainly some time each and everyday, so that we can learn the most important information that exists in all of creation, and then learning and living by what we learn throughout our entire life, are the most important of repetitive decisions that we can make in all of our life.

In life we will all fail from time to time, but it is ultimately the pattern of life that we pursue and demonstrate that decides our true dedication to faith, or lack of it.  Most people fail in this regard.  Their pattern is not daily study, but daily apathy toward learning, true and genuine learning.

And when confronted, the excuses come spinning out like they were in a tornado.

The teaching is here.  You just have to really want it. And when you want something bad enough then you figure out a way to get it.  Learning of God is no different.

And, it is God who evaluates you, not me, not people, so the excuses really fall on deaf ears when directed toward man.  Actually the excuses only serve to publicize ones failure.  Once you complain then everyone knows.

I will guide you, is the phrase that demonstrates Gods guidance for you in life, through that which you learn, namely Bible doctrine.

With my eye, means simply that, just as God watches over everything, so too doctrine in your soul, watches over your entire life.

And we need to add one more thing.

This verse is a part of the entire passage regarding fellowship.  Your spiritual life functions within the fellowship sphere.  That is where you learn.  That is where you grow.  That is where you live your life.

I post charts constantly and there are innumerable special studies, also, on the topic of confession and fellowship and the spiritual life.  To learn you have to want to learn.  And you have to want to avoid and actually stop, all of the pretending nonsense that so many people follow in life.

God has given phenomenal opportunity to everyone, to have a phenomenal life, both now and in eternity.

If you fail, then you have only your laziness to blame.

Psalm 32:7

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Psalm 32:7

7 Thou art my hiding place [cether]; thou shalt preserve [natsar] me from trouble [tsar]; thou shalt compass [cabab] me about with songs [ron] of deliverance [pallet]. Selah [celah].  KJV-Interlinear

7 Thou art my hiding place; Thou dost preserve me from trouble; Thou dost surround me with songs of deliverance.  NASB

The context of this psalm is sin and confession, and what that does for the believer in Christ.  Sin creates a separation between a person and God.

For the unbeliever, sin is not the primary issue, whereas faith in Christ is what they need to contend with in order to be saved and begin a relationship with God.  Sin, for the unbeliever, has a tendency to drive a much greater barrier between them and their salvation decision.

For the believer in Christ, sin is an issue of functionality in their spiritual life.  Sin separates the believer from Gods presence, and from the function of their spiritual life.

Sin as a transgression, has already been paid for in full, by Christ when He went to the Cross.  But sin remains with us as long as we are living in this world, and it becomes a barrier and preventer, keeping us from growing up, and completing ourselves, spiritually.

Confession, places us in fellowship, which is the symbolic safe haven or refuge, protecting us from the corrupting influences of sin and this world.  This is a spiritual concept and principle, not a physical place.

We are still in this world and thus, subject to any and all of the problems that are in the world.

But remember that our spiritual life is not of this world, it is the activity of Gods Word, within our soul, while we are living within the safety of the fellowship sphere, that God has defined.

Therefore, the sphere of fellowship, is a hiding place, a place of safety and protection, from the negative influences and effects of sin, that sin has or can have, on the soul.

In Exodus, we saw how God surrounds us with a wall of fire, that symbolically represents Gods awesome power.

And here, we see that fellowship is a place that is surrounded by the beauty of the songs of the spiritual life.  Those songs or music are driven by Bible doctrine.

But of course you have to know doctrine, having it in your soul, because you have learned it, before you can enjoy that supernatural music of comfort.

The music is the relaxed mental attitude and poise and contentment, that is acquired through spiritual growth toward spiritual maturity.

Selah, is a word for grace, Gods grace.  As in, the music plays on.

Gods grace is infused throughout all of creation, and especially in the spiritually advancing and growing believer’s life.

For the believer who sticks with their daily study and begins to learn these principles and begins to put them together and understand how life is put together and what life is all about, then life, regardless of your circumstances, will become more and more tolerable.

And, you will begin to look more and more toward heaven, and less and less toward your problems.

Romans 1:16

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Romans 1:16

16 For [gar] I am [epaischunomai] not [ou] ashamed [epaischunomai] of the gospel [euaggelion] of Christ [Christos]: for [gar] it is [esti] the power [dunamis] of God [theos] unto [eis] salvation [soteria] to every one [pas] that believeth [pisteuo]; to the Jew [Ioudaios] first [proton], and [te] also [kai] to the Greek [Hellen].  KJV-Interlinear

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.   NASB

Those who are ashamed of the gospel, are those who refuse to obey Gods mandate to be taught or learn doctrine, as well as those who lack understanding within their soul, and therefore lack faith.

They are the first to turn away, the first to deny, the first to argue over the most trivial topics.

Faith is the muscle of the spiritual life.  It is built up out of the solid substance of Bible doctrine learned and used in ones life.  No doctrine means little faith, little real faith.

The gospel is the source and power of accomplishing Gods plan for salvation.  Without the gospel, there is no communication and therefore no awareness of salvation or even the need for it.

God magnified His word above Himself. 

The gospel is not limited to the story of the birth of Jesus and the work on the cross, but compromises all of the vastness of Bible doctrine.

There is more to life than just believing in Christ in a single moment, there is all of your life that follows.

But it all begins with one single thought or belief in Christ.

Just as in your physical birth, when all of your life began in a single instant when God imputed human life into you, so too, your eternal life began in that single instant when you believed in Christ.

First to the Jews, for it is their ancestry to whom God first disclosed, in detail, the mechanics of salvation and all of doctrine.  And then chronologically to the gentiles, often times referred to as Greeks.


The gospel and all of Bible doctrine is freely available to all people regardless of who or what they are.  There is no elite, no select group in the unbelieving world.  No one has the right to judge people with bias, or withhold Bible doctrine in any way, from anyone.
