Romans 1:31

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Romans 1:31

31 Without understanding [asunetos], covenantbreakers [asunthetos], without natural affection [astorgos], implacable [aspondos], unmerciful [aneleemon]:  KJV-Interlinear

31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.  ESV

Without understanding, ‘asunetos,’ means that a person lacks insight, lacks perspective, lacks knowledge, and in other words they lack the necessary information in order to know something, and in this case, they do not know doctrine, do not know truth, and therefore are fools.

Covenantbreakers, ‘asunthetos,’ means they are faithless, treacherous, breakers of agreements.

Without natural affection, ‘astorgos,’ means incapable of the things that come or should come naturally, like affections, empathy, sympathy, commitment.

Implacable, ‘aspondos,’ means the refusal to listen, the refusal to hear the other side, unteachable, stubborn.

And unmerciful, ‘aneleemon,’ means without compassion, unmerciful, merciless.

So, when the door of a negative attitude is thrown wide open, then these things which we have studied, rush in, into the empty vacuum of the mind.

The mind is a sponge that thirsts for information. Your volition decides which information to allow in to the soul.

Bible doctrine fills up the soul with the right stuff such that is does not thirst, does not hunger, becomes contented and fulfilled.

Rejecting Bible doctrine opens up the soul to the wrong stuff which does not fulfill, does not bring contentment, and leaves the soul lacking all that is really needs.  The soul starves with perpetual hunger and thirst and eventually dies from its own depravation.

While we have some semblance of restraint in this world, then evil cannot have its way, totally.

But one day, God will remove all restraint, and that will demonstrate the extremes in horror, that people are really capable of.  What the world and history has seen thus far, is nowhere close to what the world will see in the Tribulation.

With all of the horrors and evils in this world even now, the world population is still growing by leaps and bounds.  But when the Tribulation begins, then in those just seven very short years, the world population will be reduced to near extinction.

That is the real difference between what people do now and what people are really capable of.

Every person who disregards Bible doctrine, is in effect a co-conspirator and an aid to that which is coming.

Every person who pursues Bible doctrine now, cannot stop the future, but can be separated out from the masses and be fulfilled and completed in themselves for their better and phenomenal now and forever.  And, may even become an example for others, who too, just might advance in their spiritual lives.

Your spiritual life is centered on your spiritual growth and your advancement in Christ, fulfilling your responsibilities and obligations for life.  You are not going to make the world a better place, but you may just help others along in their spiritual lives.

This is the devils world and making a better devils world is a contradiction in terms, and an impossibility, for evil is in itself self-destruction.  And there is no such thing as a better self-destruction. But then fools will argue that it is.

Two verses ago we studied the nail or the spike in the wall, that holds up and fastens together, and acts as the foundation of the house.  Several verses prior to that, we studied Shebna, who was the traitor, the foreigner who adopted Jerusalem as his home but sold it out for his own personal gain.

And then Eliakim who by faith took office to hold fast the reigns of power and authority for the good and benefit of all.

And yet now, in our final verse of this chapter, we see that even the nail or spike of faith that supports the whole house of God here on earth, is going to be pulled, allowing the whole house to collapse.

Isaiah 23:1

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 23:1ues

1 The burden [massa'] of Tyre [Tsor]. Howl [yalal], ye ships ['oniyah] of Tarshish [Tarshiysh]; for it is laid waste [shadad], so that there is no house [bayith], no entering in [bow']: from the land ['erets] of Chittim [Kittiy] it is revealed [galah] to them.  KJV-Interlinear

1 The oracle concerning Tyre.  Wail, O ships of Tarshish,  for Tyre is laid waste, without house or harbor!     From the land of Cyprus  it is revealed to them.   ESV

This is the fifth prophecy in the second series of prophecies.  This one now concerning Tyre, which will be herein portrayed as the merchant prostitute of the world, and the condemnation of the secular attitudes of the world’s population in general, having sought after the many things, pleasures and possessions of the world, over that of the Christian life.

Tyre is a prosperous city trading center, located on the Mediterranean coast in the northern portion of present day Israel, but known as Samaria in Isaiah’s day.

Tarshish, is a general term referring to the shipping industry across the Mediterranean, from Cyprus to Spain.

The word for Cyprus, ‘Chittim or Kittiy,’ refers to all of the islands across the Mediterranean Sea and beyond.

And so the total destruction of Tyre, is made known to all peoples, to all trading partners, across the Mediterranean and beyond. The destruction is such that there is no means of trading, no harbor, no commercial caravans, no means with which to enter in or engage in trade with Tyre.

And since Tyre is the symbolized center of trade and cross roads, in that then known world, it likewise becomes the example of the downfall of all economies of the world in the end days of history.

Review our study in Revelation, and you will recall one of the biggest judgments of the world will be the destruction and absolute termination of all economics in the world, leading to unemployment, poverty, starvation, crime, utter dependence on the anti-christ government, and much, much worse.

It is known, makes it clear that, all the world will be very well aware of the decline and disasters that have befallen the world.  It would be rather obvious for all concerned.

Isaiah 22:25

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 22:25ues

25 In that day [yowm], saith [na'um] the LORD [Yahovah] of hosts [tsaba'], shall the nail [yathed] that is fastened [taqa`] in the sure ['aman] place [maqowm] be removed [muwsh], and be cut down [gada`], and fall [naphal]; and the burden [massa'] that was upon it shall be cut off [karath]: for the LORD [Yahovah] hath spoken [dabar] it.   KJV-Interlinear

25 In that day, declares the LORD of hosts, the peg that was fastened in a secure place will give way, and it will be cut down and fall, and the load that was on it will be cut off, for the LORD has spoken.”   ESV

Two verses ago we studied the nail or the spike in the wall, that holds up and fastens together, and acts as the foundation of the house.  Several verses prior to that, we studied Shebna, who was the traitor, the foreigner who adopted Jerusalem as his home but sold it out for his own personal gain.

And then Eliakim who by faith took office to hold fast the reigns of power and authority for the good and benefit of all.

And yet now, in our final verse of this chapter, we see that even the nail or spike of faith that supports the whole house of God here on earth, is going to be pulled, allowing the whole house to collapse.

So what does it mean?

The verse begins with the phrase, ‘in that day.’  For the last ten chapters we have been studying the greatest prophecies of all times.  If you have been studying along then you have learned many eye opening details that will occur in the final days of history.

This is not about Shebna, nor Eliakim, but about their failure from two different perspectives.

Shebna was evil and therefore his failure was certain and expected.  He was aware of doctrine, even of the Lord and of the history and heritage of the Israelites and of Judah.  But he was negative and refused to believe all the many truths about God and destinies.  He looked only to the glories of the world, its things, its power, its pleasures, and worst of all, he believed in his pretended spirituality and bargained with evil.  He failed and his kind will always fail.

Then there is Eliakim.  A good man with good intentions and strong faith.  He looked to the Lord and pursued his life by means of spiritual principles, but he failed, good will fail, but why?

Because, there is only one strong enough to bring it all together, to defeat evil, to bring back the perfections of the perfect world and environment and life, and that person is Jesus Christ.

The nail falling out of the wall, means that the burden or weight of life is too great for even the greatest of spiritual believers.

Throughout history, empire after empire, nation after nation, group after group, person after person have had good intentions, but sooner or later they are swayed under the great weight of life.  Their knees buckle and they fall.

Man is simply too weak to carry the burdens of this world.

Whether crime or atrocities or slavery or self-righteousness or the many and varied enticements of this world, one cannot hold up under the pressures and burdens that are placed on the most sincere and ethical of people. Not that everyone cracks under the pressure, but the world stands against all that is God and all that is of God.

Making a living, doing the right things, are always under attack, so as to portray even the best of Christians as false in the eyes of the world.  And a world that believes that, falls short of seeing the truth, and chases off after evil, with enthusiasm.

In those final days, the entire world will break down and all evil will be let loose pushing the world to the very brink of extinction.  And even at the very edge, people will still refuse to see their own predicament.

We are not there now, so you have every opportunity to get your act together, but as these words state clearly, ‘for the Lord has spoken,’ so then history will unfold just as predicted, because most will refuse to change.

The question for each individual is, ‘Will you be a part of this unraveling of humanity or one of the very few exceptions?  Will you talk about it or do something about it?’  Namely get started and stick with your daily study and spiritual growth, in order to complete yourself as God intends for you to be completed.

You are not going to change the world, but you can change yourself.

Isaiah 22:24

Copyright Ó 2014 J. Neely
Isaiah 22:24ues

24 And they shall hang [talah] upon him all the glory [kabowd] of his father's ['ab] house [bayith], the offspring [tse'etsa'] and the issue [tsaphi`ah], all vessels [kaliy] of small [qatan] quantity, from the vessels [kaliy] of cups ['aggan], even to all the vessels [kaliy] of flagons [nebel].KJV-Interlinear

24 And they will hang on him the whole honor of his father’s house, the offspring and issue, every small vessel, from the cups to all the flagons.  ESV

Hanging honor on someone is tantamount to presenting them with honors, awards, prestige, authority, position, recognition, and so forth.

And even though the subject here is Eliakim, we have already seen that he is but the example, and that the Lord is the real person being honored.

All the glory of His fathers house is a reference to God the Father.  We do not know much of anything about Eliakims parents.

The issues and the offspring, are the determining terms referring to all who have preceded him and all who will follow him, within his family group.  This eliminates Eliakim, as any of his ancestors are dead, and any of his future children and their generations are unknown as to their spiritual status.

But in Christ, all who have believed in Him, are alive in Him and will be alive again.

The dead cannot receive honors, but the living can.

And all who are of the lower stature within the family and all who are of a higher stature, will be recipients of honor in conjunction with Christ.

Every small vessel to every flagon, refers to the least to the wealthiest.

The small vessels, are those who have little value and are the least among the family members.

The flagons, are vessels for wine.  Wine is typical in the wealthier homes, and flagons, plural, definitely separates the poorer from the wealthier.

Now, throughout this chapter, we have seen that anyone who disregards God, Christ, doctrine, their spiritual life and so forth, are going to have a very difficult life and failure will be the result of their life.

Here, we have the continuation of the recognition of the Lord, through the example of Eliakm, using the meaning of his name and that of his fathers name, to point to the real honor that will be bestowed upon Christ.

But note one more thing.  In the family of God, there will be those who are wealthy and those who are not.

And this does not refer to life in this world, but to life in the next life.  Honors are bestowed upon all believers, from Adam to the last believer in history.  All will have to be resurrected in order to receive those honors.

But the honors are of the family name and the many rights that attach thereto.

There will be in heaven those who have not advanced to spiritual maturity, and thus will have little or nothing in the form of reward, but they will still have eternal life, resurrection bodies and whatever more God grants to them.

But there will also be those who will advance in their spiritual life and to those who have much from the rewards and so forth, the same honors and family rights apply.  They too, will have eternal life, resurrection bodies, and honors, but they will also have many more things that those who did not advance in their spiritual life, will not have.

So, advancement should be a priority.

But the whole point here is that the spiritual life should be your highest priority in life.  Not only does it guarantee success in this life, spiritual success, but it also guarantees great reward in the next life.

To disregard Christ is to fail, and have nothing better than failure.  The only good thing for a person who has believed in Christ but does not pursue their spiritual life, is that they will have some semblance of honor in the eternal future.  That is eternal security, regardless of how bad your life is now, or how negative you are now.

The alternative is far better, but you have to really want it, and then stick with it.
