[‘amar] I, Lord, [‘Adonay] how

Begin study:


The strong language of destruction and utter desolation, continues in these verses.

And even though Judah and the nation of Israel have suffered great destructions before in history, their destruction will continue up and until the last generation of history of human rule, namely the Tribulation.

Nebuchadnezzar let the poor remain when he deported nearly all of the Jewish people out of the land, but the land was not totally desolated. This verse describes a judgment that will leave the cities and homes completely and totally without people. This is utter destruction, and the destruction will come not only from natural disasters, but also at the hand of foreign invaders.

The reasons for these various destructions, is due to the lack of truth, due to the lack of interest in learning truth, in the population. And so history repeats itself, over and over again, even until that last generation in which the last destruction will take place.

And as we will see soon enough in the last verse of this chapter, ninety percent of the population will perish and only ten percent will survive in this last and final series of judgments.

This is not to say that ten percent of the population at the time of the Rapture will be the surviving number, but it emphasizes that at the time of the final destructions at the end of the Tribulation, then only ten percent of that group will actually survive. By then the total population will have diminished substantially, as well over half of the entire world will have died. And, the punishments and atrocities against the Jewish people as well as believers in Christ, will be ongoing right up until the very end. Review the Revelation study.

So, the population in Judah and Jerusalem, will have been reduced substantially already, when the last and greatest of judgments will fall on that nation.

The primary purpose of these verses is to make it very clear that because of the massive extent of negative volition toward God, Christ and doctrine, the suffering and anguish and destruction will be massive.



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.
