Begin study:


Both Isaiah, which means the salvation of Jehovah, and the children thus far mentioned, Immanuel, ‘God with us,’ Isa 7:14; and Shear-jashub, ‘the remnant shall return,’ Isa 7:3, all have special meanings that point to God as the one and only savior and deliverer of the people and the nation. Not outsider nations, not foreigners, and certainly not strangers.

And yet the people look to strangers, rather than their own family, to those that they are unfamiliar with, rather than to Him of whom they are more than familiar.

And so it is throughout history, people will look to the world and the many uncertainties of the many tomorrows, rather than to God of whom everyone knows something of the scriptures. For all have heard the stories of Adam and Eve, of Noah and the Ark, of Jonah and the whale, of Jesus and the Cross, and of many, many more stories beyond that. While virtually no one knows the stories portrayed in Islam, in Buddhism, in Hinduism, or any other religion you care to name.

And yet that which is familiar is disregarded, and that which is not known is embraced.

Zion is the representation of Gods vast mountain of truth. Truth resides in Jerusalem, which means the city of peace. And that peace comes from the resident body of truth maintained inside the soul, which attains inner peace, by learning and understanding and possessing truth by means of the daily study process, by means of the daily residence in fellowship, residence within the confining walls of the city portrayed as flooded with truth and the circulation of truth, and the daily activities of truth.

From the name of infants and prophets, to the vastness of the universe, to the unfathomable and extreme miniscule details and composition of creation, all things point to God and to His magnificent plan and purpose.




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.
