Begin study:

 

Judgeth, ‘shaphat,’ means to judge, to vindicate, to govern with boundaries, to defend, to execute. And when used in reference to those who have believed in Him, namely the righteous, then God protects those who have believed in Him, by means of the application of His justice.

He has applied righteousness and justice, and issues judgment accordingly, in order to vindicate, protect and avenge those who subscribe to His will.

By contrast, He applies his judgment against the evil, or wicked people, because of their rejection of truth. And thus applies this policy of rejection of evil, every day.

Everyday means continually.

God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His policies are consistent and do not change for any reason.

His policies are consistent with regard to believers, for their stability and security and protection (eternal security).

His policies are consistent with regard to the wicked.

The wicked, fall into two categories.

First there are unbelievers, who by definition are wicked and never anything else.

Second there are believers who often times imitate unbelievers by means of their disinterested attitude toward doctrine. These are righteous in the sense that they are saved, but wicked in the sense that their lives function out of fellowship and outside of the will of God. They pursue sin, in other words.

God applies discipline against wicked believers (out of fellowship believers), and judgment against unbelievers.

Discipline is intended to bring believers back into fellowship and a functional spiritual life.

Judgment is intended to bring unbelievers to faith in Christ, thus escaping the permanency of the Lake of Fire.

At death, those believers who did not respond to discipline, lose out on additional eternal blessings (reward), even though they are still in heaven.

At death, unbelievers lose everything and worse, forever.

In every case, God is consistent and fair in how He deals with everyone.

 

 

End of study

 

 

 




 

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.
