Anyone who turns themselves against truth, loves this world, disregards God, disregards their spiritual life, compromises or tries to redefine truth, and so forth, is an enemy of God, Jas. 4:4.

All lies cannot stand on their own.

Truth needs no support in order for it to stand on its own.

Lies need convincing, deception, compromise, hidden agendas in order for them to succeed.

Truth needs no such hidden things, but stands out in the open and is visible for all to see and examine.

Therefore, when confronted by truth, which is the same as being confronted by God, then all that is in opposition to God, fails.

Under examination, all lies fail. Under examination, all deceptions crumble away. Under the light of truth, all enemies are turned back, forced to retreat, made to run to the darkness.

Therefore, when you deny God, deny your spiritual life, are indifferent toward God, Christ, doctrine, your spiritual life, then you are an enemy, and your life is destined to failure. That is not a maybe, but a certainty.

As you advance through your years of life, regardless of your success or circumstances, you are merely advancing toward your inevitable failure.

Rejection, defiance, indifference toward God and doctrine, makes that person an enemy.

You live outside of the fellowship sphere, you do not advance in your spiritual life because you do not learn, do not understand, and therefore do not grow.

As goes this life, so goes your eternal life. Failure in this life, spiritual failure, means failure to receive the rewards in the next life, that are intended for those who advance spiritually in this life.

Your success has nothing to do with your physical circumstances. Billionaires can fail spiritually just as those who are in poverty can fail spiritually. Financial circumstances are irrelevant to the spiritual life.

When enemies turn, and that is a certainty, then their destiny is spiritual failure and spiritual loss.



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.
