Isaiah 2:22


22 Cease [chadal] ye from man, [‘adam] whose breath [nashamah] is
in his nostrils:
[‘aph] for wherein is he to be
accounted of
[chashab]? KJV-Interlinear


22 Stop
regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; For why should he be
esteemed?  NASB

The word for man is ‘adam,’ which means flush or rosy, dyed, made, red ruddy, to show blood, common, low, and comes to mean he who is made from the ruddy red low or worthless dust.

And here man has power only so long as he has breath in his nostrils. For today he lives and tomorrow he dies. And once dead, mans power and his thoughts, cease along with him.

Ps 146:4

4 His spirit departs, he returns to the earth; In that very day his thoughts perish. NASB

In short, humanity is frail, humanity has severe limitations, regardless of how man looks at himself or thinks about himself.

Man lives for just a few decades, and yet within the first two decades of life, he comes to the belief that he knows all there is to know about life, history, how the world works, how society functions and so forth.

For someone who possesses so little, humanity overstates his own wisdom and importance by lightyears.

How then does one who knows so much, run and hide in the rocks from God who is indeed omniscient and omnipotent and omnipresent, and presume that he can fool God. Just who is the fool?

And just who is man held accountable to, if not to himself, then to God?

And so this chapter closes with mans phenomenal inability to do anything wise in this life. And therefore one should not place ones trust in man, but in God.

There is but one God, one Savior, one plan, one truth, one spiritual life, one destiny of worth, one faith and to disregard them all, is nothing short of stupidity.

And yet people disregard God everyday. They disregard their spiritual life everyday. People invent their own values and their own spirituality, and their own path to heaven, and then when they finally get that knock on the door of the end of their life, they find out too late, that they had made the biggest mistake of their entire life and it will be too late to do it over.

We all have the opportunity to advance to spiritual maturity and to end life a winner, which is accompanied with infinitely greater rewards than anything possible from this world.

And yet people disregard God and His plan. Didn’t I say that somewhere before?

Life is filled with far too many ‘more’ important things, and so people do not take any of this Bible stuff seriously.

Unfortunately that is a huge mistake. Are you making that same mistake?





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.
