You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
Therefore shall the Lord, ['adown] the Lord ['Adonay] [Yahovah] of hosts, [tsaba'] send [shalach] among his fat ones [mashman]
leanness; [razown] and under his glory [kabowd] he shall kindle [yaqad] a
burning [yaqowd] like the burning of a fire. ['esh] KJV-Interlinear
Therefore the Lord, the God of hosts, will send a wasting disease among his
stout warriors; And under his glory a fire will be kindled like a burning
The Lord, 'Adonay,' refers to the sovereign, the controller, the Lord, the master, the authority.
Lord, 'Adonay Yahovah,' refers to the proper name of the Lord, 'Adonay,' then combined with 'Yahovah,' meaning the self-existent one, eternal, the name given the second person of the trinity, also designated as the Son of God, also designated as 'I Am.'
Therefore, the unique God of the universe and beyond, who is the sovereign authority over all that exists and beyond, shall send onto Assyria, a leanness, 'razown,' a thinness, reduced in vigor and reduced in strength. Assyria fell to its own luxury and fatness of wealth. They grew lazy of mind as well as lazy of body.
Anyone, no matter how courageous or strong, will fall when they lack doctrine and truth in their soul.
Only Bible doctrine provides the basis and foundation for contentment in life regardless of ones circumstances.
Things, material things never create contentment in ones life. Only the content of ones soul can bring contentment into ones life and existence. Things are external. Only the soul is the integral part of your essence and existence. Therefore you have to have content inside of you that will bring contentment inside of you.
God is the sovereign over all that is. Assyria thought that it was sovereign over its own existence and destiny. Not so.
And God will bring a burning fire. And this is the burning of invasion.
When Assyria invaded they burned and stole and killed and so forth.
When the time comes, another, Babylon, will bring the same ingredients to Assyria. They will be invaded and they will see destruction. And as they say, what goes around, comes around. And that certainly applies to evil in every respect. What evil you do will come back on you.
The very worst kind of evil is indifference toward ones own spiritual life. You sow nothing , and you get nothing. And that nothing lasts forever.
