Enter the rock and hide in the dust are descriptive phrases for run and hide. Hide in the caves, crawl into a hole, get down into the dust and blend with the dust such that you cannot be seem, hidden from view, out of sight from discovery.

And why?

Because of the previous verses.

For the person who has ignored God, doctrine, and his spiritual life as God has defined it.

For the person who has chosen to pursue the world and its pleasures, its beliefs, its views, its conveniences, its enticements, its compromises.

For the person who has decided to pick and choose which principles they will or will not abide by.

For the person who has no respect for God and truth.

For the person who does not fear God.

Then here is the warning.

Judgment, discipline, corrective action are coming, sure as you are reading these words right now, sure as the sun will come up tomorrow, sure as anything can be sure.

For God has but one answer to any and all rejection of truth, all of which rejection only leads to trouble and suffering and pain for all, sooner or later.

Life in this world is temporary at best. Life in this world only provides you with a logistical mechanism to get by, while giving you an opportunity to grow up in your spiritual life, thus preparing you for eternity.

This is the devils world, and all who choose to rely on this world only, is in for certain trouble, and trouble will come.

Therefore if you are to respect anything, at least respect Gods wrath as it approaches and overwhelms your life.

But where can you hide? Nowhere.

Hide in the rocks, or in the dust for what good it will do you. You cannot hide in your success. You cannot hide in your titles or credentials. You cannot hide in your beliefs or attitude. None of these things, nothing of this world, will be able to deflect or stop Gods assault when it comes.

And Gods punishment does not have to come with overwhelming power and force. It can come into your life with a slip in the shower, with an accident on the road, with a choke of a piece of food. And certainly His wrath can come by means of an invading army made up of man or disease. God has no shortage of arrows or methods with which to straighten out your life, after you have strayed off the path of truth.

And in each and every case, it will not be God who will be the bad guy, but His righteousness and justice will be magnified as right and true and correct and fair.

Gods glory and majesty are never tarnished. Only mans glory gets placed in its rightful place, in the dust, from whence it came.




Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
