The cedars and oaks represent the tall and massive and strong and majestic trees of nature.

The mountains and hills represent the powerful and awe inspiring vastness and security of making oneself hidden.

Now the towers and fortified walls represent manmade and mans efforts in early detection and defensive structures.

Towers are places of observation. Constructed high on fortress or city walls, they offered a view of the surrounding area such that an enemy or messenger or anyone traveling by, could be seen from a distance.

Fenced or fortified walls, were usually built thick and tall, in order to prevent an enemy from breaching the defenses and getting into the fortress or city being defended.

Throughout history man has constructed higher and higher walls, and better and better defensive structures, but in every case, none have served to prevent an enemy from overcoming the defenses.

Man is impressed with the natural majesty and strength of nature. Man is impressed with the work of his own hands. Man is impressed with his own self.

And yet, none of these things will stand before God when the day and hour come for the final judgment of man and history.\

There is nothing in this world and nothing in your life that can hide you, that can exempt you, that can prevent Gods judgment from overtaking you.

Without God, even this world will crush you. The world cannot prevent itself from destruction.

Therefore, if you choose indifference toward God, toward doctrine, then you have no defense. There is no alternative for your protection. There is nothing in this world, nothing in your imagination, nothing in your ingenuity that can save you from what is coming in your life. Indifference includes defining your own way.

Just as you could not prevent the day of your birth, and you cannot prevent the day of your death, so too, your life is totally in Gods hands, not yours. All you can do is choose a side for God or against, and then reap the rewards or curses that will apply.




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.
