Isaiah 8:10



10 Take [`uwts] counsel [`etsah] together, [`uwts] and it
shall come to nought;
[parar] speak [dabar] the word, [dabar] and it
shall not stand:
[quwm] for God [‘el] is with us. KJV-Interlinear


“Devise a plan but it will be thwarted; State a proposal, but it will not
stand, For God is with us.” NASB

Begin study:


There are only two possible positions that you can have in life. You are either for God or you are against God.

There is no third or modified position possible.

Truth is pure. You either adhere to truth or you do not.

A lie is a lie by any standard.

A lie mixed with truth is still a lie. You cannot compromise or modify truth and retain its purity.

Truth mixed with a lie is a lie. You cannot take a truth and then tilt it just a little bit. It becomes a lie.

Only truth holds up when it is pure truth, with no compromise, with no suggestions of convenience, with no good intentions, or sincerity.

The only way to possess truth is to study, and learn and do this while in fellowship, and then gain an understanding, and repeat this process over and over, again and again, until you develop wisdom. This whole process then builds up your faith, or the muscle of your soul, and that equates to your spiritual power.

To take counsel, means to devise, discuss, make plans with disregard to Gods truth. Anything against Gods plan, meaning that promoting some alternative history timeline, namely yours instead of Gods, is a faulty and defeated effort.

To speak the word, which too is against Gods will, is taking your plans and putting them into action.

All foreign nations that oppose Judah, as is in this case, are taking counsel against Gods plan not only for Judah and Israel, but for history overall.

God has established the dispensations or era’s of time. Each dispensation has certain and specific attributes that must occur during that era, and this has been true since the time of Adam all the way through to our current dispensation.

But humanity has tried many times to circumvent Gods plan, and establish many empires. All have failed.

Back in Isaiah’s day, the countries to the north will try to destroy Judah. And even with some semblance of military success, Judah and the people of Judah, will not be destroyed.

Likewise, in the final days of history, the entire world will rise up against Israel, and especially the ultimate target, Jerusalem, and try to destroy it completely. In this attempt, much of Israel will be destroyed, but in the final minutes and hours, Gods plan will win the battle and the day, and all the counsel and planning of history will fail completely.

This same principle is applicable to your individual life. You can be stubborn throughout your life, you can do things your way, you can pursue that which you see fit, but in the final analysis your efforts, regardless of how you feel about them, will end in failure. And that end comes dramatically when God removes you from this world and allows you to see what you refused to see during your life, namely your stupidity.

So what is it that you need to be doing? Well we already stated it just a few paragraphs above, study and learn and so forth.

The most prevalent false counsel that is pursued in this world and in all of history, is the exact opposite of this process.



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.
