Proverbs 1:18

All Evil Leads to Self-Destruction


18 And they lay wait [‘arab] for their own blood [dam]; they lurk privily [tsaphan] for their own lives [nephesh].   KJV-Interlinear


18 but these men lie in wait for their own blood; they set an ambush for their own lives.  ESV

And not only do people see clearly the net of destruction, namely God’s judgment, and pursue their anti-truth ways anyway, but, they in effect, are setting the trap for themselves.

People who do not practice truth, which is the content of the Scriptures, as a normal part of their day-to-day life, then by default, practice untruth.

Untruth, is a separation from truth, and therefore a separation from reality, and likewise a separation from God. And any separation from God, is a recipe for self-destruction.

God provided the contents of creation for those who belong to Him.

Anyone who does not belong to God, refuses that relationship, by their own choice.

Anyone unrelated to God, has no right to anything in creation.

Therefore, anyone lacking a relationship with God, by whatever means, but still claims access to the things of creation, in effect, make false claims. They are trying to take something that does not belong to them. There are trying to take things that do not belong to them, from others who have rightful access.

To take something that does not belong to you, is simply theft, and you set yourself up for criminal action, namely Gods justice, against yourself.

The terms blood, and lives, reflects the action of Gods judgment or justice, against that person.

For unbelievers, the action is the Lake of Fire. For believers, who function out of fellowship, the action is discipline, and/or, loss of blessing or reward.

Whatever the case, or whatever the reason, individuals who resist Christ or doctrine, are setting themselves up for a greater judgment or discipline against themselves, than their own actions attempt to bring against others.

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.
