Psalm 36:1


Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Psalm 36:1

1 To the chief Musician [natsach], A Psalm of David [David] the servant [`ebed] of the LORD [Y@hovah].
The transgression [pesha`] of the wicked [rasha`] saith [n@'um] within [qereb] my heart [leb], that there is no fear [pachad] of God ['elohiym] before his eyes [`ayin].   KJV-Interlinear

1 To the choirmaster. Of david, the servant of the lord.
Transgression speaks to the wicked deep in his heart; there is no fear of God before his eyes.   ESV

The chief musician is the leader of the music.  Music is often used to describe the grace of God, which continues on and on, regardless of what else is going on in history or in life.  Grace is always there, unhindered, uninterrupted.

David is of course the person who is writing this psalm.  David is the King, the symbol of a dynasty that will never end, and thus his words will never end.

A servant of the Lord. Servant describes one who belongs to another, and in some cases it indicates total commitment and ownership, but it also carries the connotation of a close friend.

The wicked is one who has disregard for God, for Christ, for doctrine.

The wicked sees no value in God.

The wicked sees himself as equal to, or better than God.

And therefore the wicked holds contempt against God, which is a contradiction of attitude, because if one has no regard for something then you simply ignore it. But as to God, the disregard is accompanied with an attitude of hate, whether passive or active, as one goes out of their way to prove their superiority, and prove Gods worthlessness.

The wicked cannot find peace within himself, therefore the phrase, deep within his heart, because there is an underlying uncertainty.

Therefore in order for the wicked to justify himself, he has to destroy the other.  And as far as God goes, that is not possible.  The wicked is in effect, helpless and powerless when it comes to maintaining or proving his own beliefs.

Romans 3:31

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Romans 3:31

31 Do we [katargeo] then [oun] make void [katargeo] the law [nomos] through [dia] faith [pistis]? God forbid [me] [ginomai]: yea [alla], we establish [histemi] the law [nomos].   KJV-Interlinear

31 Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.  ESV

Does faith result in the total removal of the Law?  No.  Faith reinforces the principle of the Law.

The Law demands perfection, which no person is capable of doing.  God demands perfection and therefore any failure results in the application of justice, which Jesus took upon Himself in our place.

The Law established the line.

The Law establishes the rule.  God refused to issue salvation or pardon to sinners until there was an atonement for those sins.

The Law cannot be violated with impunity, lest everyone would live a life of chaos or licentiousness with total disregard for any form of moral standard.

God respected the Law, thus requiring the application of justice to its violations.

Jesus respected the Law, by living it.

The Cross fulfilled the Law, by paying the price for its violations.

And therefore faith, is our benefit for something that we could never accomplish ourselves.

Isaiah 28:7

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Isaiah 28:7

7 But they ['el-leh] also have erred [shagah] through wine [yayin], and through strong drink [shekar] are out of the way [ta`ah]; the priest [kohen] and the prophet [nabiy'] have erred [shagah] through strong drink [shekar], they are swallowed up [bala`] of [min] wine [yayin], they are out of the way [ta`ah] through strong drink [shekar]; they err [shagah] in vision [ro'eh], they stumble [puwq] in judgment [p@liyliyah].   KJV-Interlinear

7 These also reel with wine and stagger with strong drink; the priest and the prophet reel with strong drink, they are swallowed by wine, they stagger with strong drink, they reel in vision, they stumble in giving judgment.   ESV

Even though God promises a remnant will survive, Isaiah here, makes it clear that the ones who survive are not perfect people.  They fail just like everyone else.

But as for the ones who profess belonging to God, they demonstrate their ingratitude and obstinence which is described using the behavior and character of a drunk.

To err, refers to the staggering and imbalance of one who is intoxicated.  This condition also applies to the vision and judgment of people who lack truth and therefore lack discernment.

Everyone is subject to failure in life.  We all have our flaws.  But there is only one way to overcome those flaws, and that is to learn Bible doctrine and live within the spiritual realm, which we call fellowship.

Without truth in our soul then we have only the fog of life which distorts reality, making everything we see, subject to our intentions, desires, imagination, and personal views.  All of which are distorted.

Because, when truth is absent, then lies are all that we have to guide us.  And that results in a distorted life.

Which simply means that we live off balance, or intoxicated, as it were.

Swallowing the wine means our intent is to avoid truth and pursue the bad views of life.

We see the wine, we want the wine, we pursue and drink the wine. The same principle applies to untruth.  We see it, we want it, we pursue it.

To swagger, reel, and stumble, are the results of a life without doctrine.

Now this has nothing to do with drinking, but when you do not pursue the learning of Bible doctrine, then your  demeanor is no better than that of a drunk.

And one more principle is being taught here.

When the end of days for a person, or nation, or history, or whatever, comes at any point in history, then the teaching and understanding of Bible doctrine takes a turn for the worst.  It becomes distorted and tainted by the failure of the ones who are supposed to be teaching truth, but of course, are not.

This means that there will be many views, many religions, many philosophies, many opinions, and to those who do not really pursue learning, and take a more passive approach or indifferent approach, or an approach that is far less than genuine, then the teaching even legitimate teaching, will be lost in the fog of the noise of all other views.

The person who is not really interested, who is simply passing through, and does not want to dig out the truth, then these verses will apply.

But for those who dedicate themselves to listening, to the objectivity of learning and testing and discerning, then the truth will eventually become clear to them, and their life will be far better.

Isaiah 28:6

Copyright Ó 2015 J. Neely
Isaiah 28:6

6 And for a spirit [ruwach] of judgment [mishpat] to him that sitteth [yashab] in judgment [mishpat], and for strength [g@buwrah] to them that turn [shuwb] the battle [milchamah] to the gate [sha`ar].   KJV-Interlinear

6 and a spirit of justice to him who sits in judgment, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.   ESV

Unfortunately too many are Christians in word but not in deed.  They are shallow, hypocritical, complaining, opinionated, and the worst of it is that they enjoy the greatest of opportunities ever made available to mankind, but squander them because of their empty faith.

Here we see more of that which is made available to man, by Christ.

Yesterday’s study saw the success of spiritual advancement, and the victory of victories, as a result.

And today we see the spirit of judgment and the courage that accompanies it, to face the long odds that are always set against life.

We will soon see the failure that will result in spite of all of this.

But first, the spirit of judgment and courage.

The spirit of judgment is the ability to discern.  This is not a judge on the bench, but the clarity of thought and ability to see reality, made possible by Bible doctrine.  Without it, namely doctrine, then no one has any ability to see through the fog of life.  One has to study and receive instruction, in order to learn and in order to understand.

Isn’t there a proverb addressing this principle?

When Christ returns and sets up His kingdom, His wisdom will set the pattern for life for the final 1000 years of history.  Justice will be fair.

But more important, people will learn, and know the real from the phony.

And then there is the courage of life which comes only from truth, and from doctrine resident in the soul.  Which again, has to be learned before it gets into the soul.

Failing to see this pattern, especially when the Bible repeats and repeats the principles, is the biggest failure that anyone can have in their life.

If one were to apply blonde jokes to the human race, for hearing but not hearing doctrine, then that would be the best illustration of human failure.  I shudder to wonder of anyone understands this point, instead of being offended, which is the reaction that one would expect, but proving the whole point.
