Samaria
[Shomarown] shall be taken away [nasa’] before [paniym] the king [melek] of Assyria. [‘Ashshuwr] KJV-Interlinear

Begin study:

 

So from the time of this prophecy, Isaiah’s wife would have to conceive and then nine months later give birth, and then the child would have to grow up, and then before he spoke his first words, perhaps by the age of two, the King of Assyria would invade both Samaria and Syria. That effectively ends their threat against Judah, which is the whole point of this prophecy and promise.

And in accordance with the name of the child, that invasion would be swift and thorough, and the plunder likewise great and thorough.

Both nations that had designs of their own for Gods nation, Judah, would in fact see their own demise. And that is a good lesson for us all.

There are a lot of people out there that would just as soon destroy you, as look at you.

Being of an evil nature, all people who reject God, are by default evil.

All people who reject or ignore God, which is just another form of rejection, are in fact evil and prefer their own plans as opposed to the plans of God.

The plan of evil does not include anything good, which is to say, you are excluded from the plans of a spiritually negative world.

Judah and its king and its people looked not to God, but to Assyria. Their plans were likewise thwarted.

So, unless you look to God, unless you comply with Gods wishes, unless you bend your knees and stiff stubborn neck, in humility to Gods will, then you and your life will fail miserably.

And by your life, we include your eternal life, not just these few decades that you will live in this world.

You may very well grow up to become a billionaire, but that is irrelevant to the overall outcome of your life. One day you will die and whatever is on your balance sheet will disappear behind you, of which you will never see again. And, someone else will reap the earthly rewards of your earthly efforts. But too, they will die and that process will repeat itself, until one day all of those earthly inheritances are eventually squandered and lost to history.

Once you move on to the afterlife, the only thing that you will take with you is your spiritual production, and needless to say, if you take nothing, then you will have nothing. And given that your eternal life will last a very long time, like forever, then your possession loss will be no less than an infinite loss. So, put your calculator on that concept, and figure if it is really worth ignoring all of this God stuff.

Syria and Samaria rejected God and they lost. If you reject God, then you will lose. So how can you possibly win?

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.
