Isaiah 5:24



Therefore as the fire
[‘esh] devoureth [‘akal] the
[qash] and the flame [lashown] [lehabah] consumeth [raphah] the chaff, [chashash] so
their root
[sheresh] shall be as rottenness, [maq] and their blossom [perach]
shall go up
[`alah] as dust: [‘abaq] because they have cast away [ma’ac] the law [towrah] of the
[Yahovah] of hosts, [tsaba’] and despised [na’ats] the
[‘imrah] of the Holy One [qadowsh] of Israel. [Yisra’el] KJV-Interlinear


Therefore, as a tongue of fire consumes stubble, And dry grass collapses into
the flame,, So their root will become like rot and their blossom blow away as
dust;, For they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts, And despised the
word of the Holy One of Israel. NASB

Judgments are pronounced. Judgments are often the repercussions of ones thoughts or actions. And just as many things are naturally occurring events that follow some given action, so too, judgments are naturally occurring events that follow evil.

Only in the case of reality, judgments always come from God, however God may choose to execute various judgments in many ways.

Jesus Christ controls history. Jesus Christ controls history in three general ways.

First, He can control history directly. He created the universe. He creates life.

Second, He can control history indirectly. He can control history through the application of divine establishment principles or natural laws, such as economics, or physics, or gravity, or authority and so forth.

Third, He can control history through His permissive will. In other words, God can grant permission for various thoughts or actions to occur. Evil can rise up and combat evil. People can elect the candidate of their choice. People can adopt norms and standards that they will live by, and so forth.

But in every instance, Christ controls the total flow, direction, and outcome of history. And He did this beginning in eternity past when the divine decrees were issued.

God looked forward, down through the tunnel of time, and saw all of the possible outcomes and ramifications of every possible scenario in history. He selected the one and only best possible timeline that best meets everyone’s needs, always resulting in the best outcome for history.

When people reject truth, then there is a natural order of results. And that is of course judgment or discipline.

As these past few verses have unfolded, we have seen that any and all rejection of truth, parallels the actions of drunkenness, arrogance, boasting and so forth.

While actual physical drunkenness has a natural disorganization of ones mind and body and life, then so too, rejection of truth will cause ones spiritual life to fall into pieces. Drunkenness is the real life representation of spiritual disorientation.

The fire, represents the typical tongue like appearance of the flames of a fire as it flickers in the dark.

Devour, means to eat or consume, or to remove from existence.

Chaff is typically the dried grass or stubble of a field, that when lit on fire, is consumed with rapid fury.

The dried grass has no production, and its root is rotten and useless for production. Roots typically refer to the strength for the support and maintenance of a productive plant. When the roots are worthless, then the plant by default is worthless.

No plant can survive unless it has strong and productive roots. No spiritual life can survive unless the individual has a strong foundation in the fundamental principles of doctrine. No doctrine no roots, no roots then no functional spiritual life. No functional spiritual life, then faith is empty and impotent.

The blossom refers to the beauty or the productive aspects of the plant. And so the illustration continues with the absence of a root, and therefore there is an absence of beauty and productivity.

The law, or the fundamentals or principles, and the word, or the content of the scriptures or truth, having been ignored, compromised, rejected, and otherwise banned in ones life, become the basis for the destruction, the self-destruction of ones own life.

When you reject doctrine, then you pronounce on yourself, your own sentence of destruction.



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.
