Begin study:

 

And why are these two kings and their countries nothing more than a fire that is ready to go out, nothing more than smoke and ashes?

They are going to meet their end, for the same reason that every country, for the same reason that every person, eventually meets their end. And that is because they have spoken against God in some fashion.

As we will see in the coming verses, the agenda against Judah and the house of David, is in fact an anti-God agenda.

But then every activity, every thought, every intent, that rejects or opposes or takes an indifferent posture against anything or everything that is truth, is only preparing the way for their own demise.

If you ignore God, if you ignore Christ, if you ignore doctrine, if you pick and choose among any of these, if you invent your own version of any of these, if you play the pretend game with any of these, if you take the obligations or responsibilities or God assigned purposes for your life and reject them or ignore them or remain indifferent toward them, then you are in effect taking an anti-God position. You are digging your own pit.

Both of these kings were preparing for war and their aim was to destroy Judah and Ahaz.

Your anti-God posture may not be so dramatic as this, but the same result will occur.

God has designed the laws of divine establishment. God invented roles for man and woman. God has defined many levels of authority. God has designed every aspect of life for the purpose of allowing you to succeed in life, and any opposition or opposing attitude will make you the fool of fools as you are in affect designing your own misery and doom.

So why would anyone do such a dumb thing to themselves?

 

 

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.
