Back in verse twelve, the Day of the Lord, is now upon the high mountains and hills.

If you have ever been to a place where there are surrounding high hills, or mountains, or even standing on the top of hills or mountains such that you can view the surrounding hills or mountains, then you have no doubt been held in the awe of its beauty and presence.

And just as the cedars and oaks possess a sort of beauty and power, so too, the mountains and high hills possess a sort of beauty and power that can hold the viewer in awe.

But unlike the cedars and oaks, the mountains and hills often times hold a place of refuge in their caves or caverns, or boulders and forests that exist upon them.

It is difficult to find someone in the mountains and hills if they are hiding and do not want to be discovered.

So this verse adds to the prior verses, in that the arrogance of people can be viewed as lofty and fortified, but when the Day of the Lord arrives then these seemingly powerful and safe places, hold no such security.

They will tumble just as a house of cards would tumble with but a slight bump.

Recall our study in Revelation, when at the end of the Tribulation, the mountains and hills throughout the entire world, on this entire planet, will crumble to the level of the plains, as the continents will undergo a massive reconfiguration, making only Jerusalem the highest elevation on the planet.

The mountains and hills hold no power, no security, nothing that will contribute to the safety and wellbeing of the individual. Arrogance and indifference toward truth hold no such power.

One cannot prove themselves. One cannot lift themselves above the sins of humanity. One cannot correct or repair the fundamental flaws of humanity. We have already seen in the Psalms, the total depravity of man, and that this furthers that thought. That just as man cannot originate good, so too man cannot protect himself through arrogance.

All indifference or rejection of Gods declared mandates, and attempts to replace them with mans conveniently invented and self-serving righteousness, will fail horribly and miserably.




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.
