With the ancients, dates the age of the elders to whom rulership was given by God. Princes, designates underling rulers, or rulers of lower rank within the hierarchy of a government or any organization.

God promotes and God demotes. It is God who places the custody of His people, into the care of rulers throughout history.

It is unfortunately those rulers that fail in their responsibilities, and abuse and take advantage of those over whom they rule, for their own personal advantage.

All people on this earth belong to God. All people on this earth are given by God, to rulers for the sole purpose of providing a safe and productive environment such that each person can advance in Gods plan.

Unfortunately both rulers and ruled fail and thus trouble ensues. Both get greedy, while the rulers lust for more, and the ruled lust for something for nothing. Both are irresponsible and guilty of infractions.

However, here the rulers are in view. And whether you are a parent with children under your rule, or a president of a country, or anything in between, you were placed there at Gods discretion, and given authority under Gods rules, not yours.

Throughout history rulers in all categories have failed due to sin. All manner of sin.

The vineyard is the productive vine of the garden, the nation of Israel, the family of believers of God, the children of humanity. Sin has taken away that production. People have destroyed their own benefits.

The spoil of the poor, is a reference to that which legitimately belongs to others has been taken with illegitimate means.

This world, this universe, was designed and dedicated to those who belong to God. More specifically they belong to those who have been obedient to God in that they have advanced to spiritual maturity.

However, sin comes along and people reject God, reject Christ and thus try to take that which does not belong to them.

Spoils are the possessions that are taken at the point of violence or criminal activity.

Unbelievers are the quintessence of thieves. Believers who reject doctrine and their own spiritual growth, expect and take for themselves, that which belongs to the spiritually mature.

However, only the things of this world can be taken now, the things of eternity cannot be taken. So those who illegitimately take, take only that which is temporary and soon to be forgotten. They take the worthless and lose their inheritance.

 

 

 




 

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.
