17 And the
loftiness
[gabhuwth] of man [‘adam] shall be
bowed down,
[shachach] and the haughtiness [ruwm] of men [‘enowsh] shall be
made low:
[shaphel] and the LORD [Yahovah] alone shall be exalted [sagab] in that day. [yowm] KJV-Interlinear

 

17 And the
pride of man will be humbled, And the loftiness of men will be abased, And the
Lord alone will be exalted in that day. NASB

And all of the things that people take pride in, all of the things that people place their trust in, all of the things that people look to for their fulfillment, meaning and purpose, all of these things that have previously been listed and far, far more, will be taken away.

Humbled, made low, bowed down, abased, all are terms of removal or elimination.

Today, the young generation is impressed with celebrities, musicians, singers and stars of the varying arts. Most of the lyrics are suggestive, resentful of authority, carefree, or just plain rude.

The younger generation is led by concepts of a care free life, nirvana, social activity, texting, posting, pleasure and fun without accountability, without responsibility, without any consequences. The philosophy is that life is to be played, and then we all go to a peaceful place after this life. This is viewed as something automatic and without any commitment on our part. Principles are neglected as unnecessary. Eat, drink, and be merry is the banner, for there is plenty of time to do whatever one wants to do. Plenty of time to get acquainted with God … Later!

In that day. There is always an, ‘in that day.’ Because there are always consequences, whether you accept that fact or not. And the Bible has the ultimate, ‘in that day,’ deadline.

Life styles will never be exalted. Pleasures, social activities, whatever it is that you do in life, will never be exalted, but will be made low, diminished into nothing, massive investments of time yielding no result.

And such are the flippant and indifferent attitudes toward reality, rejecting reality and substituting life with lofty and self-important and conceited attitudes that are based on the self-centered life of the individual.

And one day, all of this will vanish as Gods truth will come crashing down around all who have rejected it throughout their life, and most certainly at the end of human history, when all arrogance will vanish forever.

Again the warning continues. You have a great deal to lose in life and in eternity, unless you turn your life around and get with a daily program of Bible study. But then, some folks need to hit the wall hard before they wake up to how misdirected their life really is, before they get their head on straight.




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.
