Isaiah 2:21


21 To go [bow’] into the clefts [naqarah] of the rocks, [tsuwr] and
into the tops
[ca`iyph] of the ragged rocks, [cela`] for [paniym] fear [pachad] of the LORD, [Yahovah] and
for the glory
[hadar] of his majesty, [ga’own] when he ariseth [quwm] to
shake terribly
[`arats] the earth. [‘erets] KJV-Interlinear


21 In order
to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs, Before the
terror of the Lord and the splendor of His majesty, When He arises to make the
earth tremble. NASB

Rev 6:15-17

15 And the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man, hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;

16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb;

17 for the great day of their wrath has come; and who is able to stand?” NASB

And so it goes in life. People have the attitude that they can eat, drink, and have fun, for that is all there is to live for. No one looks to tomorrow. That is just another day that can be planned when it comes, but tonight is now and that is the extent of our life as far as people are concerned.

No responsibility, no accountability, no cares in the world. Just text and tell, just post and pretend. The world is at our internet finger tips, who cares who is on the other end.

But one day, the end of our life always knocks at our door, and then what? And sooner or later the end of the world will be knocking and that is when life will be crashing down on everyone across the planet.

The image here is very moving and disturbing. The entire earth shaking, the consternation and alarm of the people, their renouncing confidence in all the things to which they had trusted, their rapid flight to get away, their appearing on high projecting cliffs in an effort to hide from God, are all abysmal and terrible images. They signify the extreme severity of God’s justice.

People hide from people by using closets, attics, hide outs and such. But to hide from God, how is that even possible?

God is omniscient. He knows everything even before you were born. God is foreknowledge. He knows everything you will think before you know it. God is omnipresent. He is everywhere simultaneously and can follow you like the skin on your own body. God is omnipotent. He created the universe in an instant and can shake the planet in its entirety with a blink of His eye.

And as the entire world collapses around people, whether it be life in general seemingly falling all around you, or at the end of history in the final days, Gods judgment is seen but no repentance accompanies it. People run and hide from what, to what end, to what destiny or future?

People refuse to recognize God, they refuse to recognize Christ, they refuse to recognize their own flaws and failures in reality. All they see is the here and now and they remain stubborn to their own change.

And the final blow to mans arrogance is going to be mentioned in the next and last verse in this chapter, which we will study tomorrow.





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.
