Falsehood or leasing, ‘kazab,’ means lies, deceit, untruth, or anything that is not real or legitimate. This can include the telling of lies, false philosophy, religion, or even having an opinion that is not true. But it also applies to anything that exists when out of fellowship.
The energy of the flesh, or human good as it were, is a lie. This, as opposed to the energy of the spirit, which is anything done while in fellowship.
For example, helping a little old lady across the street. All would agree that this is a good deed.
However, when this act is performed while out of fellowship, its production is symbolized as wood, hay, and stubble, or human good, or energy of the flesh. A deed that gains you no credit in your spiritual life.
On the other hand, when performed while in fellowship, then it is symbolized as gold, silver, and precious stones, or divine good, or energy of the spirit.
Spiritual status makes the total difference between what you do from arrogance or the sin nature, performing works without the need of God, verses, performing works from the spirit, or performing works by means of God.
Unbelievers can only produce lies in their life.
Believers out of fellowship, can only produce lies in their life.
Only believers in fellowship, produce divine good.
Now back to the word for destroy, ‘abad,’ which means to wander away, to lose oneself, to destroy, to perish.
Therefore, people wander away from God because they do not function properly in their spiritual life. In so doing, the person perishes, destroys themselves, because their true life, their spiritual life, does not function. No spiritual life, no spiritual food, therefore starvation as far as the nourishment of the soul is concerned.
And because the individual who has a dysfunctional spiritual life, then God abhors, rejects, isolates, sets them to off line.
The ones who are bloody, and deceitful. Bloody indicates the life being sucked out, and deceitful, means self deceit, or pursuing or promoting something that is not true.
Ever wonder why your spiritual life does not seem to work? Then perhaps you are living in the sphere of the false. Perhaps you are delusional or stubborn about your own opinions or attitudes, and need to change.
