Ungodly, ‘rasha,’ means wrong, morally wrong, concretely bad, condemned, wicked.

Sinner, ‘chatta,’ means criminal or offender.

This verse distinguishes between two categories of non-spiritual people. Those who are unbelievers, and those who are believers that lack spiritual resources.

Unbelievers are people who have never believed in Christ. They are non-spiritual by default. They have no spiritual resources. They have no relationship or access to God.

Believers, on the other hand, have believed in Christ and therefore are saved. But once a person is saved, at that initial moment, the person is an infant in their spiritual life (born again). They have to grow up.

In the spiritual life, people grow up spiritually to spiritual maturity by means of Bible study.

The Bible is the food for the soul. It is the nourishment that your spiritual life demands in order to grow up healthy and strong in the spiritual life. No food, no growth. No growth, no health. It is just that simple.

The ungodly, the unbeliever will not stand, ‘quwm,’ which means the inability to stand erect on ones own. The inability to support ones self.

In history, there are two judgments. All of us will be in one or the other.

Believers will stand before Christ at the Judgment Seat of Christ. That is a good place to be.

Unbelievers will stand before Christ at the Great White Throne. That is a bad place to be. You do not want to be in that judgment.

To stand means the ability to survive, and on ones own no person can withstand the history of eternity. Lacking eternal life, unbelievers will have no argument before the Great White Throne. They will go to the Lake of Fire.

Believers on the other hand, have believed in Christ, and therefore possess eternal life, which God gives to everyone who believes in Christ. But, those believers who do not grow up, will not stand (not evaluate well) when they stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ.

That simply means they will not receive the additional blessings for eternity, that mature believers will receive. Standing in the congregation, is the expression of believers standing together before Christ as He hands out the rewards for eternity. Immature believers receive nothing.

So, there are two losers in life. Unbelievers because they rejected Christ, and immature believers because they rejected doctrine.

If you do not want to be a loser in life, then you must believe in Christ, a one-time expression of faith (belief), and then following that, you must study the Bible daily (food is eaten everyday), learn doctrine from a legitimate instructor (you cannot teach yourself), and then use it in your daily life.

All of this study and learning and using must be done while you are in fellowship – that is a supernatural sphere that God gives to you, when you confess your sins. Confession must be done on a regular basis, daily or whenever, and consistently, for your spiritual life functions only when you are in fellowship.

Unbelievers disregard Christ and therefore will lose out in life. Believers who disregard doctrine will be losers in blessing. So if you want to be a loser, then simply do nothing.

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.
